Religion, Politics or The Kingdom

"Use me!"
“Use me!”

Each day we awake we are given a choice. What we will do with that choice often determines the quality of our life, our relationships and our endeavors.

Lately, there is a lot of talk about politics and religion. But not so much about the Kingdom.

Frankly, only one has any real appeal to me. I am sure you will discover it. Continue reading Religion, Politics or The Kingdom

Whole Lotta Shaking’ Going On

"Use me!"
“Use me!”

When Elvis Presley sang about being “all shook up” he was talking about love. But here so many years later there are people walking about who are all shook up, as well… And it is about love. His love for us!

The declaration of “your kingdom come, your will be done here on earth as it is in heaven” is an invitation for shaking. An invitation to God to appear. To emerge through His people. The earth at one point had fallen under the kingship of evil. It is being shaken. Exactly what can be shaken? Empires, governments, monarchies, banks, businesses, churches, families, individuals and anything else available! Continue reading Whole Lotta Shaking’ Going On

Arisen In New England

leejohndrowteamA few days ago, I was praying about some things and I felt this powerful pressure come upon me. It caused me to sense I was in His presence. I grabbed my phone and recorded what was being said. Part of it I am going to share today. I sense that it is for today predicated on a few things. The world seems to be moving in slow motion this morning. And I had a powerful dream that I am going to have to process through. I had something totally different to work on this morning in mind, but I believe this is it. Continue reading Arisen In New England

Geography Matters To God

preachingatvillageFor many a year I have been taken with geography in the kingdom. The idea of being in the right place at the right time OR being in the wrong place at the wrong time. We relegate so much of the kingdom to “serendipity” rather than faith, discernment and wisdom.

How did we get here? Continue reading Geography Matters To God

Personal Responsibility Belongs To Someone

leejohndrowteamWhile much of the news and social media feeds is consumed with thoughts on bad movies, yoga pants and Speedos, the fact of the matter ought to go all the way back to the simple question of why. Why do we flame others over their thoughts and opinions? Why do we care? And maybe we can jump to “how did they arrive at that thought” or conclusion. Continue reading Personal Responsibility Belongs To Someone

A Snippet Can Tip It

preachingatvillageYesterday I came home from work to see my wife had hung a bunch of pictures, paintings and photos. I had seen them years before but the last few years since the loss of our home it has been low on the priority list to hang anything up and they were in a closet. So I found it pretty cool. (A while ago someone gave me a word about hanging pictures. I wish I remembered who, but I see they were right.) I looked at them and thought about origins and beginnings. A few years ago I described prophecy as “pictures on the wall”. Jacob came in and he was impressed with Tina’s work as well Continue reading A Snippet Can Tip It

Your Influence Shapes Your Legacy

My friend Darryl.

Last night the wife of an old friend came by to visit. Martha and I go back a long ways. Her husband, Darryl and her were influential in my life for many a year in ministry, before he had a stoke, subsequently passing a way some time later. It was so good to see her and her travel companion, Joan. Continue reading Your Influence Shapes Your Legacy

Thy Kingdom Come!

leejohndrowteamI was up at 3 this morning. I would like to tell you I “had a reason”, but that would not be truth. For some reason, I woke and found myself wanting to or needing to pray. I found myself praying for situations in our country. Troubling, difficult situations. It matters less about what they are and simply that we know to pray.

As I lay there wanting to sleep but knowing it was not fruitful, I began to see people and places. I felt like I was overhead, zooming down from an eagle’s perspective. Silently I would view a circumstance or an individual only to find myself “needing” to pray. Continue reading Thy Kingdom Come!
