IF YOU WANT TO BE A LEADER

by Bill Elliff March 29, 2022

It is in the heart of many of us to lead. There is a longing inside of us to help people move forward. If our motivations are right and this is not just for selfish gain or human recognition, it is usually a desire that is placed there by none other than God Himself.

OUR SPEAKING GOD

OUR SPEAKING GOD

by Bill Elliff March 23, 2022

The great pursuit that every man or woman, boy or girl, must embrace is to pursue God. To come to know Him—personally, intimately, experientially—is to find life. Everything you need is found in Him and unless you make this the great pursuit you will miss all that matters and lasts. But this search would be impossible except for one vital reality ...

MY GREATEST FAILURE

MY GREATEST FAILURE

by Bill Elliff March 17, 2022

After seven decades of living, your successes and failures become very clear. It occurs to me this morning that my greatest failure is failure in prayer. I’m grateful for all the Lord has taught me about communion with Him through the Word and prayer and for the privilege of learning how to pray without ceasing, but there could have been so much more.

SO, YOU WANT TO BE A LEADER?

SO, YOU WANT TO BE A LEADER?

by Bill Elliff March 17, 2022

The responsibility for a leader is heavy. A leader affects not only himself, but everyone in their down line. This is why God gives such strong instructions for those who serve others as leaders.

God knew that Israel would want a king once they entered the Promised Land. Before they crossed the Jordan, He gave instructions about the nature and the character of those who would lead them in Deuteronomy 17.

THE PATTERN FOR A GOD-BLESSED LIFE

THE PATTERN FOR A GOD-BLESSED LIFE

by Bill Elliff March 15, 2022

The blessing of God is when God takes something natural and makes it supernatural. When He takes the normal beyond normality. When His hand and his smile are upon a person, a family, a land. To be under God’s blessing is to be in the optimum position for this life and the next.

7 TRUTHS TO HELP YOU RESOLVE YOUR ANGER

by Bill Elliff March 03, 2022

Have you ever responded to others out of anger? How did that go for you (and others)? “The anger of man does not accomplish the righteousness of God,” James said. And there’s no greater illustration of that than Moses’ encounter with God and his people in Numbers 20.

HOW DO YOU RESPOND TO THOSE WHO OPPOSE YOU?

HOW DO YOU RESPOND TO THOSE WHO OPPOSE YOU?

by Bill Elliff March 02, 2022

In the work of God, there are always those who oppose. I have watched countless churches plateau and die because of a man or group of men who fought God's work.

But it is critical for God's leaders to know the source of such opposition.

GOD, THE DWELLING PLACE OF MAN

GOD, THE DWELLING PLACE OF MAN

by Bill Elliff March 01, 2022

Where do you live? You may respond to that with an address, defining the physical place of your primary dwelling. You go to many places, but you live there.

Moses reminds us in this Psalm that God himself has been the dwelling place of his true children forever. It is only in him that we are at rest, at home, safe and secure.

WHY YOU SHOULD PLACE GOD AT THE CENTER

WHY YOU SHOULD PLACE GOD AT THE CENTER

by Bill Elliff February 23, 2022

The book of Numbers in the Scripture begins with a seemingly laborious account of a census taken of all the Israelites after they came out of Egypt. But this very accounting has a purpose. As always, it teaches us something about God.

THE WORLD BELONGS TO GOD

by Bill Elliff February 21, 2022

In the beginning of the Israelite’s occupation of the Promised Land, God put certain rules in order. They were rules that would provide for the maximum yield of the land and would also ensure against a worldly, materialistic view of the land and all we possess.

GOD MEETING US WHERE WE ARE

GOD MEETING US WHERE WE ARE

by Bill Elliff February 17, 2022

The great enemy of our souls, Satan, is a liar and the genesis of every untruth known to man. His singular target is God. This started in the Garden, for Satan knew that if he could get this new generation to doubt the goodness of God, they would not trust Him. And if they did not trust Him, they would not follow Him and God’s plan to create a nation of people in His image would be destroyed (or so Satan reasoned).

The REALITY of the LAW

The REALITY of the LAW

by Bill Elliff February 16, 2022

There is confusion among many Christians regarding the Old Testament laws. There are some laws that we realize we are not bound by in our era. Most of these are particular CEREMONIAL laws that were tied to a pre-Christ system. These laws, given to the Jews, were designed to fulfill the spirit of the law, but done in ways that pictured the coming Christ.
