Heart To Heart

Kenneth W. HaginBy Kenneth W. Hagin

Families are important to God. God established marriage and the family long before He instituted the Church or government. And except for our relationship with Him, our family should become our most important priority.


The Last Word Wins

Whether we realize it or not, words can be weapons. And most of us have found ourselves embroiled at some time in a war of words, even if we would never fight with our fists. Words can be more powerful than a boxing punch and cut more deeply than any knife. When used as weapons, words are able to mutilate and destroy.

Some “faith people” seem to think if you believe God, nothing bad will ever happen to you. Some have taught that if you have faith, you’re going to float through life on flowery beds of ease. However, if you live for God, sometimes you’ll have to swim upstream! Walking by faith is not always easy.

Following a procession of instructors and parade of flags, 420 graduates marched into the arena. Their caps and gowns made it clear that they had successfully completed their training, and they were equipped and eager to enter the harvest fields of the earth. Seventeen of the graduates represented seven countries outside the United States: Canada, Colombia, Nigeria, Northern Ireland, Norway, South Africa, and Zambia.

One day my best friend called me because she was having a terrible day. She was feeling down and discouraged. As soon as I answered the phone, she blurted out, "Do you like me?"

I thought, "What planet is she coming from?" But I said, "Of course I like you. Why?"


Seed Thoughts

Walking with the Lord and following His plan for our lives is an exciting adventure. It is certainly a faith walk. The Apostle Paul reminded us several times in the Epistles that “the just shall live by faith,” and Paul was a wonderful example of someone who did that.
