Lift Your Eyes

Lift Your Eyes

Pastor Dwain Ministry, Vision

We are in a time of expectation.  That is, Father is shifting our thinking toward expecting harvest and inviting us to change our perspective from that which we’ve had. Jesus led the disciples in such a shift, and John recorded it in chapter 4 of his gospel. This is where Jesus went to a particular well to draw water and …

Why do We Withhold from God?

Pastor Dwain Vision

Why do we withhold from God? Often we are wanting to spend the money ourselves and believe that if we give the money to God we will miss out. This is selfishness based in fear instead of faith. That’s not what a real man or woman of God does. It could be we distrust God’s willingness or ability to get …

Visions and Authority

Pastor Dwain Vision

(This post is part of a series.  You can read the previous entries here.) The covering and the blessing comes from being under authority.

Telling God He Has Your Heart

Pastor Dwain Vision

Covenant means “unto the death” and is signified by blood. All that I have, including my life, belongs to those I’m in covenant with. Nothing represents the love and loyalty …

Take your flocks and herds, as you have said, and go. And also bless me.” The Egyptians urged the people to hurry and leave the country. “For otherwise,” they said, “we …

Provision for Every Vision

Pastor Dwain Vision

Though things have changed a bit from the early days of Abel and Abraham, the foundation of tithing remains the same.  We bring Him a costly sacrifice from our increase and we place it on an altar, given to Him, as a sweet aroma. Today we don’t bring the same types of sacrifices as they did in the early days …

Pro-Vision

Pastor Dwain Vision

In Genesis I’m seeing God as the great lover. The one who gives vision and provision. The one who blesses His kids for their fulfillment. The one who desires a love reciprocation. I’m seeing, through Abel and Abraham, that Father wants us to love him deeply and sincerely. But how do we love Him? How can we affirm our love …
