daily word - humble knowledge

Dale Cresap's picture

My word says that knowledge puffs up. Have you seen this to be true, that when people have information it gives them an inflated sense of their own importance? Do you find this to be an attractive quality in people? Knowledge is desirable, but the problems associated with it go back to the very beginning. Is there a way to obtain knowledge that leaves you more humble rather than less so? A transformative encounter will accomplish this for you.

daily word - science and faith

Dale Cresap's picture

Do you see science and faith as opponents? This should not be. You have nothing to fear from an investigation into the world around you. Yet my word refers to the opposition of science falsely so called. Real science stays within its own domain of observation and investigation, but you have observed crusading science advocates, who are generally not scientists themselves, who claim that science gives a comprehensive view of reality, and there is nothing more. This is unprovable and not even a scientific assertion. Faith and science operate in distinct but overlapping realms.

daily word - rules of life

Dale Cresap's picture

Do you like to play games? Games have rules that all parties must agree to for the game to be successful. Not everyone likes to play games, but there are other activities that have rules as well, such as court proceedings, or even just the rules of the road for driving a car. You can look these up as readily available information, and everyone is subject to the law of the land. Are there rules to life in a larger sense? These are not published and universally agreed to, but you have clearly observed that some approaches are successful and others are not.

daily word - I will find you

Dale Cresap's picture

You have my promise that if you seek for me you will find me. But where would you look for me? Perhaps it would be more accurate to say that if you look for me, I will find you.  For you do not know where I am, but I know where you are, and I will meet you there. You are familiar with this concept by arranging a time and place to meet a friend. But this concept goes beyond physical location. It applies to your life circumstances and condition as well.

daily word - on their way

Dale Cresap's picture

Do you carry out the Great Commission? What sort of responses do you encounter? Do you prefer those who are indifferent to those who oppose you? This is a way to avoid conflict, but not a strategy for success. Those who have started their spiritual journey will engage with you even if they don’t agree with you. Those who have not will find the whole subject to be boring. I likened my own generation to children who would not dance to music or mourn for a dirge. They had become indifferent and unresponsive.

daily word - demolition

Dale Cresap's picture

Some building projects begin with bare ground, but for others there is already a structure on the property where the new building will be constructed. In this case, the old building must be removed before the new one can be built, and this process is called demolition. This destruction is a necessary part of the overall process that results in a new building. Have you ever been through a similar process in the building of your own life? Have you ever had your life fall apart in spite of your best efforts to prevent this?

daily word - built on rock

Dale Cresap's picture

I told a story of two houses, one built on rock, and the other built on sand. Both houses remained standing under calm conditions, but when a storm came, the house built on a rock stood and the one built on sand fell. The parallel to human life is obvious. Some people build beautiful structures on a bad foundation. Have you ever see a life of affluence and comfort that would not withstand the storms of life? No building can be better than the foundation it rests on, and the same is true of life.

daily word - like-spirited

Dale Cresap's picture

Do you seek out those who are like-minded to yourself? This is a common phrase that everyone understands and responds to. Everyone likes the company of those who are in agreement with them. Yet do you know people with whom you agree on points of doctrine who are nonetheless disagreeable people? Would you rather keep company with those who are kind or with those with whom you are in agreement? What term would you use for those who are kind and pleasant and congenial? Like-spirited? Is it more important to you to keep company with those who are like-minded or like-spirited?

daily word - love one another

Dale Cresap's picture

By this shall all men know that you are my disciples, by the love ye have for one another. This is a profound statement. For any group, do you find their authenticity more validated by the love they have for one another, or for the love they have for you? Hold that thought while we revisit the story of the Good Samaritan, which hinged on the question of who is my neighbor. The moral of that story is to reach outside of the group you identify with to extend kindness to others. You can extend the same principle to the statement demonstrating that you are my disciples.

daily word - Here I come!

Dale Cresap's picture

You have my promise that I will return. Are you eager for this? You can be confident that it will happen even if you don’t know the date and time, even if it doesn’t happen during your lifetime. This is not a matter for passive indifference, for I tell you many places in my word to love my appearing, and to look for and hasten unto the coming of the Lord. This certainty can and should motivate you and give you a sense of urgency in the life you live now. Are you ready for it? Does desiring it imply that you are prepared? Is there anything you have left to do?

Have you ever wished you could just sit down and have a long talk with the Lord? Wouldn't it be wonderful to move beyond having a theology that states that God loves you to actually hearing Him whisper words of love into your heart? When you're worried or confused, wouldn't you love to see the situation from His perspective and hear how He wants you to respond? When things don't seem to be going your way and your prayers aren't answered the way you had hoped, wouldn't it be great to hear Him tell you where He is in the midst of it, and what He is working out in your life? Are you ever just a little bit jealous of others who say with such confidence, "The Lord said...."?

Counseled by God

by Mark and Patti Virkler | 146 Pages

Have you ever been defeated by negative emotions such as anger, fear, guilt, inferiority, condemnation or depression? Have you tried to fight them off unsuccessfully? Is there an answer that is deeper than simply trying to mentally reason yourself out of these emotions? Is there a way that Jesus can speak a word of life into the depths of your emotional despair and bring healing on a deep level? Is there a form of Christian counseling that begins and ends with the movement of Christ within your heart, rather than simply with the words of man?

by Mark and Patti Virkler | 92 Pages

A new book has just been released that accompanies this workbook: Click here for Hearing God Through Your Dreams by Charity Kayembe and Mark Virkler (featured on Sid Roth's "It's Supernatural", with almost a million views just on YouTube).


Do you often wake up feeling there was a significant message in your dream, but you’re just not sure what it is? Like Daniel and Joseph, do you long to be able to help others understand their own dreams and win them to Christ as you explain His night messages to them? Wouldn't it be nice if you could receive mid-course corrections from the Lord while you sleep? Do you wish you could be receiving divine inspiration, creative solutions to problems, and direction from the Lord during that third of your life that you’re “just” sleeping?
