What if we stood on God’s living word?

By Barbara Ho | June 7, 2020

Recently, I was a bit discouraged. It was nothing major but I was feeling depressed. It was probably similar to what many have been struggling with. This went on for a few days and even affected my sleep. As I woke up one morning and came before God in prayer, I “googled” the words Bible…

What if we prayed thankfully?

By Barbara Ho | June 1, 2020

“Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful.”  Philippians 4:6 What does it mean to be devoted to prayer? Being devoted means to be loyal or committed. Are you committed to pray? Can you be depended on for prayer? When others ask you for prayer do they know you will carry through and actually pray for…

What if we leaned on Jesus?

By Barbara Ho | May 25, 2020

I gave my life to Christ in the early 1970s during the Jesus People movement. It was a revival that swept through America touching many young people. It was a blessed time. One of the criticisms that became popular against those of us surrendering our lives to the Lord was that Christianity is just a…

What if you poured out your passions to God?

By Barbara Ho | May 18, 2020

Through out the years, my husband Danny has had the privilege of speaking in conferences and other gatherings in many different countries. He’s spoken at conferences in the Philippines, in Ecuador, in Russia, and throughout Canada. But when he stepped foot onto the country of Ukraine there was an instant love and connection. It soon became…

Two Elements of True Revival

By Barbara Ho | May 11, 2020

Who may ascend the mountain of the Lord? Who may stand in his holy place? The one who has clean hands and a pure heart, Who does not trust in an idol or swear by a false god. ~Psalms 24:1 I’ve recently been studying and learning about the great Hebrides revival in Scotland which took place from 1949-1952.…

Knowing Who God Is

By Barbara Ho | May 3, 2020

What are you facing today? What thoughts or concerns were on your mind when you rose up this morning and when you closed your eyes last night? Can prayer make a difference? Can it really? To answer this question, we must begin at the beginning: Who is God? Our answer to this question determines the depth of…

Faith that sets you free

By Barbara Ho | April 28, 2020

What freedom walking by faith brings! Believing God for the impossible actually sets us free. How? By opening the door for God to work as only he can. By taking the pressure off our shoulders to fulfill a desired task and placing it on God, the only one who is able to accomplish it. By…

Look Up.

By Barbara Ho | April 6, 2020

I recently read an article where the author told people to stop hoping for things to be different. He advised us to move on from living in denial and to instead accept the dismal changes our country and world are facing. It is what it is. I have to tell you this article discouraged me.…

What if we prayed to the God of Hope?

By Barbara Ho | March 24, 2020

Hope that is put off makes the heart sick, but a desire that comes into being is a tree of life. Prov. 13:12 If there’s anything that’s been put off lately, it’s hope. Many are giving up on hope and giving in to the prospect of this “new normal”. The situation with the Coronavirus seems to…

What if we prayed when we cannot see?

By Barbara Ho | March 19, 2020

I have a small plaque on my fireplace that reads, “I will walk by faith even when I cannot see.” What a great daily reminder this is. One of the biggest struggles in walking by faith is trusting God during uncertain and confusing times. We like to know what we’re facing. Our confidence comes in…

What if you stretched past the impossible?

By Barbara Ho | March 1, 2020

Hebrews 4:16 reads, “Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.” This verse speaks of the access Christians have to our Heavenly Father. We can confidently come to him at any time for any reason and receive the mercy…

What if We Prayed God’s Word?

By Barbara Ho | February 16, 2020

Ephesians 6:12 tells us: “For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.” Do you recognize your real enemy? I can’t tell you how many times this verse comes to…
