The GREATER WORKS in the Everydayness of Life

Is it Possible to Please God?

Richard Roberts A life without faith is a life without possibilities. The Bible says in Hebrews 11:6,  But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.  When you are without faith, it’s impossible for you to receive God’s highest and best in your life. This doesn’t mean He doesn’t love you; He just is not pleased with you. Without faith, it’s impossible to have peace in everyday problems that must be handled by your faith. God has a way for you to get out of the realm

‘Who Is My Neighbor?’

From the archives of Oral Roberts The Pharisees had a problem with the Old Testament commandment to love their neighbor. They said, “God couldn’t be talking about Samaritans, little children, lepers, tax collectors, or adulterers.” They defined the term “neighbor” as anyone who wasn’t a Pharisee. An understanding of their thinking helps us to fully appreciate the wisdom of Jesus’ answer to the lawyer who asked him, “Who is my neighbor?” (See Luke 10:29-37.) Jesus answered the question with a story. He said there was a man who went down from Jerusalem to Jericho. On the journey, thieves jumped him,

Put on Your Armor and Go to Battle

Lindsay Roberts - Second of two parts We have allowed the devil to push us a little bit, and then we’ve allowed him to push us a little more. We think we’re supposed to be humble, take it, just walk away, and shut our mouth. In some situations, God may tell you to do that. But then it gets to the point where the devil is stealing your anointing, stealing your church, stealing your children, and stealing this generation. When I saw my little girl that particular day, I saw her with spiritual eyes. She looked like a giant. She

“You Wanna Bet?”

Lindsay Roberts - First of two parts I received the greatest revelation from God when He talked to me about being a mighty warrior. He showed me that you cannot be “more than a conqueror” without a battle. Yet many times when we are put in the battle, we think, Oh God, what am I going to do? But sometimes God puts us right in the middle of the battle to grow us up, or to strengthen and toughen us. Our five-year-old daughter, Chloe, asked if she could become a member of a T-ball team for five-year-olds. I agreed reluctantly

The Shaping of My Life

Richard Roberts - Second of two parts Days went by, then weeks and months past. It had been prophesied over me that the healing ministry would come into my life, but I knew that my faith had something to do with it. I had to launch out. I had to believe. God will give you a word from time to time, but you can’t sit back and expect it all to simply happen. You have to do your part. God expects you to do your part. Without God, you cannot; but without you, He will not. So I knew I

By Faith We Receive

Richard Roberts - First of two parts I had thought about being in a healing ministry, but I wondered if God could ever use me because I’d made a lot of mistakes in my life. But the good news is, when you make a mistake, you can go to God. When you commit sin, you can go to God. The Bible says in John 1:9 that if you confess it to Him, He is faithful and just to forgive your sins. He will cleanse you from all unrighteousness. That means He wipes the slate clean. You don’t get up in

The God of Increase

Lindsay Roberts God is not a God of subtraction and division. I once heard a preacher say, “He’s the God of multiplication and addition!” But how can we know our Lord is a God of increase? Is it biblical? Take a look at the promises in God’s Word: Seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you (Matthew 6:33 NKJV). He [God] who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food will also supply and increase your store of seed and will enlarge the harvest of your righteousness.  You will

A Rhythm of Sowing

Richard Roberts The apostle Paul, writing to the Philippian Church, said, “Now you Philippians know also that in the beginning of the gospel, when I departed from Macedonia, no church shared with me concerning giving and receiving but you only. For even in Thessalonica you sent aid once and again for my necessities” (Philippians 4:15–16 NKJV). The inference in the original Greek version is that the Philippians gave to Paul’s ministry “again and again and again.” In other words, they got into a rhythm of sowing their seeds to God. And Paul went on to say that as a result,

A Vital Lesson

From the archives of Oral Roberts I once saw Sir Edmund Hillary, the first man to climb Mount Everest. He told of the very difficult task of climbing to the summit: the swirling, icy winds, the thin, oxygen-poor air, the task of carrying tent and gear, the sheer fatigue and the presence of death every hour. Even with everything that he endured going up, Sir Hillary declared that coming down was the most dangerous part of the climb. He was exhilarated from reaching the mountaintop, but the very joy of his accomplishment made him careless. He made it safely, but

A Higher Realm

Lindsay Roberts If you’re like me, you don’t always know exactly how to pray for certain situations. But thank God, He has given us the Holy Spirit to help us when we don’t know what to pray. Roman 8:26 NKJV says, The Spirit also helps in our weaknesses. For we do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. When we pray in tongues, we’re connecting with the Holy Spirit. And that means we’re connecting to a higher realm than we’re capable of in
