GOD’S SPEAKING VOICE

GOD’S SPEAKING VOICE

by Bill Elliff October 23, 2023

God is a speaking God, as Tozer says. He has spoken, and the written Word is a record of His voice. But before the Word was written, He spoke, and since the Word has been written, He continues to speak. In fact, His Spirit enlivens the written Word, speaking it to our hearts. Without this active communication, we would not be able to understand a single written word.

DO YOU NEED STRENGTH?

DO YOU NEED STRENGTH?

by Bill Elliff July 13, 2023

When you are weak, do you quit? Do you wallow in despair and self-pity? Do you resign yourself to a second-best effort? Do you try to pull yourself up by your own bootstraps? Or do you, like David, say, "For YOU are the God of my strength!"

WHAT IS MY FIRST JOB AS A MAN?

WHAT IS MY FIRST JOB AS A MAN?

by Bill Elliff July 12, 2023

Of all the conversations I've had with hundreds of men across the years, the number one question is: "What am I supposed to do with my life?" We want to know our purpose, and we must. As always, God is not silent. Look at Paul's instructions to the young man, Timothy, in 1 Timothy 2.

DO YOU LONG TO PRAY BETTER?

DO YOU LONG TO PRAY BETTER?

by Bill Elliff July 05, 2023


Most followers of Christ are disappointed in their prayer life. Some are not praying at all—some only in a crisis. Some are praying much but having done so and seeing its’ power, they long for more. These know that the most powerful person in the room is always the one who prays, for prayer brings God into the equation.

PAUL’S PRAYER … AND OURS

PAUL’S PRAYER … AND OURS

by Bill Elliff June 30, 2023

Paul did everything by prayer. Not some things or most things. The secret of his power and usefulness was that he was a man of such clear understanding and humility who knew he must pray without ceasing—prayer with no intermission.

OUR DIVINELY POWERFUL WEAPONS IN THIS CURRENT BATTLE

OUR DIVINELY POWERFUL WEAPONS IN THIS CURRENT BATTLE

by Bill Elliff May 19, 2023

The world is a place of constant warfare for those who follow Christ. God loves people. This love drives Him to “seek and save those who are lost.” He longs to bring people into the glorious Kingdom that He created for us. And His true followers are His boots on the ground.

Our Enemy is 100% evil and incessantly seeking to block the advancement of God’s kingdom ...

What will the sentence read about you in your troubles?

“He took revenge.” “He lived in anger and frustration.” “He was constantly afraid.” “He tried to work it out on his own.” “He got bitter.” “He lived in anxiety and fear.”

WHY PRAY?

WHY PRAY?

by Bill Elliff April 04, 2023

Everyone agrees that prayer is important, but few pray. We do what we think is valuable. We will make almost any adjustment to get what we think will bring meaning and purpose to our lives. So, if we are not really praying, it is apparent that we do not consider it as important as God declares that it is. (He spoke of it over 600 times in the Bible!)

So, why should we pray?

REFLECTIONS ON SPIRITUAL AWAKENING (Part 14)

REFLECTIONS ON SPIRITUAL AWAKENING (Part 14)

by Bill Elliff March 10, 2023

Is prayer a nice thing to do? Something we resort to when we are in a serious situation? A word to describe one of the disciplines of the Christian life? Secondary, but not really all that essential? Something we do as a segue between songs on a Sunday morning? Or is it the essence? The foundation? The fragrance that is to pervade everything for the serious follower of Jesus? The ultimate pathway to communion with God and the source of life and power for all we are and do?

8 TRUTHS FROM GESTHEMANE

8 TRUTHS FROM GESTHEMANE

by Bill Elliff January 26, 2023

I have stood many times in the Garden of Gethsemane, and I am always speechless. It is a sacred place, for this is where the final battle was won by our Savior. The cross and the tomb were outcomes of a prayer time. Without Gesthemane, there might not have been a cross and an empty tomb. The Garden of Eden and the Garden of Gethsemane are inextricably linked: bookends of our sin and God’s solution.
