Seed Thoughts October/November 2013

"The Lord will guide you always; he will satisfy your needs in a sun-scorched land and will strengthen your frame. You will be Like a well-watered garden, like a spring whose waters never fail."
-Isaiah 58:11 (NIV 1984)

When I speak on prayer, many times I quote the last portion of Daniel 11:32: "But the people that do know their God shall be strong and do exploits." This scripture has become such a reality in my life that I refer to it consistently. I like how that verse reads in the Amplified: "But the people who know their God shall prove themselves strong and shall stand firm and do exploits [for God]."


Campmeeting Review

Oct Pic 9People from across the U.S. and around the world descended upon the Rhema USA campus in July to be refreshed and hear from God. As the rain outside saturated the dry, thirsty Oklahoma ground, the rain of the Holy Ghost flooded the hearts of everyone in attendance. Here is a sampling of what Campmeeting 2013 speakers said.


How to Break the Worry Habit

There's a story I like about a little boy named Ralph. Ralph was head-over-heels in trouble, but he was doing little to help himself. A friend advised him, "Ralph, you've got two hands. Why don't you do something?"

"I am!" Ralph replied, "I'm wringing them!"

This story makes us laugh, but how many of us are like Ralph? We're walking around wringing our hands, even though it doesn't do us any good.


On-Purpose Prosperity

I believe Jesus was prosperous. However, His prosperity was not measured by the accumulation of great wealth and worldly possessions. He did not live in a palace with rooms full of gold, looking out over fields of cattle and sheep. His lifestyle was not lavish or extravagant, and He was not driven by possessiveness and greed.


Serving By Faith

Oct Pic 6//Testimony

Hebrews 3:10 says, "The just shall live by faith." Master Sergeant Gary Houser not only believes this verse, he has lived it for the past 30 years in the U.S. Air Force.

One Step at a Time

Danger lurked around every corner for Master Sgt. Houser during a three-month tour of duty in Iraq in 2003. While stationed in Balad at a former Iraqi airbase, Gary and Tech Sgt. George Gooch were assigned to carry out a short survey mission near the runways. As they began the survey, an officer told them to avoid stepping on anything metal because they had just cleared the area of mines.
