Victoria Boyson: Hope in Love

Victoria Boyson

God’s passion is seeing you walk in all that He has for you.

His pleasure is not in the strength of the horse, nor His delight in the legs of a man; the Lord delights in those who fear Him, who put their hope in His unfailing love. Psalm 147:10-11, NIV

Paul Keith Davis: Enlarge Our Hearts!

Paul Keith Davis

In the year 2002 the Lord graciously allowed me to experience a series of visions and revelations that I have now incorporated in my book, “Books of Destiny.” The essence of these truths involved the soon emergence of great spiritual champions from every walk of life who will be identified according to Hebrews 11 and experience deep realms of the Spirit. They will be a unique generation whose capacity for God will be greatly enlarged by supernatural grace and given access to Heaven’s Treasury Room. This treasury room is none other than God’s heart containing the treasures of wisdom and knowledge hidden in Christ, according to Colossians 2:2-3 saying: Read more of this post
