Divine Upbringing for Your Children

The word of God says, Train up a child in the way he should go, And when he is old he will not depart from it. ~ Proverbs 22:6
Everywhere i go... couples often ask, “How can I raise Godly children”?  I sense these parents are longing for me to give them a formula in which to input their offspring so that children who love and respect the Lord will pop out. However, as most seasoned parents understand, this cannot be reduced to a formula, but requires a great amount of wisdom gleaned from biblical principles.

God has a prophetic instruction for you in today’s devotional. Stop the enemy before he stops you. Deal with the enemy before he deals with you. Attack the enemy before he attacks you. When you imbibe this principle, God will do anything in order to support you. God can even command angels of death to invade the camp of your enemies after the order of the onslaught of the Assyrians.

The angel of death is God’s messenger or weapon for terminating powers that have vowed to terminate your life. This weapon will ena…

The reasons why small churches don’t grow & Solution

Before I get into the reasons why small churches don’t grow, there’s nothing wrong with being a small church.
( I have seen many smaller churches demonstrating the raw power of God than big churches! You actually have a lot of advantages over larger churches)
All I know is that almost every small church leader I speak to wants his or her church to grow. Just because your church is small now, doesn’t mean it has to stay that way!
The typical size of a church in the Africa 90, US is 89 people, and probably smaller in the UK 60% of churches have less than 100 adults in attendance and only 2% have more than 1,000 coming on a Sunday morning.
So now we know what we’re working with, let’s help you buck these trends and take a look at the root causes of stifled church growth.

What causing small church not to grow 1. It’s NOT because you don’t want growth The very fact you’re reading this post means you’re serious about taking your church forward. I have yet to meet a pastor or church leader …
