Seed Thoughts


One of my favorite songs was written by Bill and Gloria Gaither. This song has given me much inspiration during difficult times. The chorus says, “Because He lives, I can face tomorrow. Because He lives, all fear is gone. Because I know He holds the future, and life is worth the living just because He lives.”*



Winning//Craig W. Hagin

When Christians are asked how they are doing, many reply, “I’ve got the victory!” or “I’m winning!” But when you look at their lives, they are doing anything but winning. Yes, we need to have a good confession. That’s where our victory starts. Scripture tells us to “call those things that be not as though they were” (Rom. 4:17). But at some point we need to go from making a faith confession to living our confession. So when people look at us, they’ll say, “Hey, they really are victorious.”


Champions of Conquering Faith

Pastor A Call to Arms//Kenneth W. Hagin

Those listed in Hebrews chapter 11 overthrew kingdoms with their faith. We can overthrow the kingdom of Satan with our faith. If we’re going to be people of conquering faith, we can’t have fear.


The German Connection

Grunewalds//John and Michelle Grunewald

Have you ever noticed that it seems God sometimes disregards personality types when He calls people? For instance, He’ll take people who have a fear of public speaking and give them pulpit ministries. And He’ll call people who love being homebodies to travel. John and Michelle Grunewald, 1980 Rhema USA grads, are examples of this. “Everything we’ve done in ministry has stretched us big-time,” says John. “We were very, very uncomfortable in a lot of the ways God has stretched us.”
