Lee Strobel, author of the bestselling book “The Case for Grace,” recalls the time, on the eve of his high school graduation, when his father angrily said something that propelled Lee into a years-long search for significance.
“My father and I always had a distant relationship,” explained Lee. “And I found out years later that I wasn’t a particularly wanted pregnancy from his perspective. There was an emotional disconnect between us, and we had a big confrontation when I was eighteen. I had done something he told me not to do. He caught me and he was mad. He looked at me and he said, ‘I don’t have enough love for you to fill my little finger.’”
Watch this intensely personal story as Lee explains how that rejection propelled him on a quest for revenge — that turned into a life-changing revelation of God’s deep love for him.
Young and energetic pastors Brandon and Cristabel Clack are experiencing the presence of God in their congregation in a powerful and life-changing way. Recently on TBN’s “Praise the Lord” ministry and talk show they explained how they’ve thrown out the religious rules that for generations have held people down and prevented them from touching Jesus where they need Him.
“If you want to encounter a genuine move of God, your faith has to be placed in His presence that occurs when two or three are gathered,” explained Pastor Brandon. “We have a promise that He’ll come in the midst of us and show Himself to us like He never has before.”
He added that his church is seeing Jesus’ presence on an “incredible scale,” and are watching as eight- and nine-year-old kids stepping out in faith to pray for healings and miracles.

How do you know that you’re really filled with God’s Holy Spirit? Pastor and longtime church growth expert Bryan Cutshall joined Perry Stone on Trinity Broadcasting Network’s ministry and talk show “Praise the Lord” to challenge people that a truly Spirit-filled person will overflow with the love of Jesus toward others.
“How do I know when I’m filled with the Spirit?” asked Pastor Bryan. “Is it because I shake my hands when I pray, or that I jump up and down and shout? Is it because I can pray in a prayer language? How do I know when I am full of the Spirit. Here’s how we know: You’re full of the Spirit when the blood of Jesus begins to flow out of you.”
Continued Bryan: “Notice David said that ‘He anoints my head with oil, and my cups runs over.’ And what is that cup? Jesus revealed it on the night He was betrayed. He said, ‘This cup is My blood.’”
Bryan went on to charge that “’we’re not really Spirit-filled until we’re evangelizing…. We can talk about what we’ve got, who we are, how good we are, how elite we are in the Kingdom because we have the Holy Spirit. But true Spirit-filled people are fulfilling the Great Commission. True Spirit-filled people are taking the blood of Jesus and it is spilling out of their cup. You cannot contain Jesus when you are Spirit-filled….”
Watch this powerful, challenging, and convicting exhortation in its entirety. And then ask God to fill you anew with His Holy Spirit!
