What Happens When You Hunger For More Of God - Lynn's Story

This is an unlikely story. This is a story of a God who loves one ordinary woman with such capacity and faithfulness that He would move His hand in astounding circumstances to touch her life and respond to the cry of her heart. This is my story. An ordinary blonde, sometimes whacky and somehow hopeful, found herself sitting in church holding her open Bible upon her lap. Her heart cry, “Lord, I believe your Word. Where are the miracles that I have read about all of my life?” He heard me. And a journey was set into motion. God sent me to find the answer to my question in Grand Junction, Colorado. Yep, weird I know. I was visiting my mother who moved there several years prior. In fact, my entire family was there that week in July of 2012. Sunday morning we had plans to travel to a Hot...

Take Six Steps Out Of Disappointment

SUMite Family: I struggled in my prayer time so I made myself write down the many past encounters, blessings, provisions and favor the Lord has poured into my life over the past 20 years. My undeniable encounter, with the power and love of Christ was on October 12, 2012. That moment changed me and everything about my life and faith. I would cling to that truth as the anchor in this dark period. Then I would write down the love notes God sends me. I wrote about some of them here and here. I would then pray. And I’m still praying today. I walk in the vineyards, walk and pray. I sing worship songs to the King of Kings. Worship is essential to keep us from losing more ground to the enemy. I would pray honest prayers and I would keep practicing what I have always done even if my... Read more →

The Struggle to Believe

My friends, the Holy Spirit has me in several places in the Bible right now. Colossians, Genesis, 1 Corinthians along with dips into James and the Psalms. In short, my head is spinning a bit, trying to put the pieces together of whatever Lord Jesus is trying to teach me. And I say try, because I’m not sure I’m getting it quite yet. However, I will try to share what I feel He is impressing upon me in one area. It’s a challenging one so bear with me. This piece of Scripture unfortunately has often been misused in teaching that “works” save us, so I want to be clear here that this is not what I believe, nor do I believe this is what the Bible teaches us. James was teaching a group of Jewish Christians whose background was Judaism—the Law, that by keeping the law perfectly (actions) they would... Read more →

God's Dream For Your Life Is Bigger Than You Can Imagine!!

SUMite Nation: Many of you participated in our Dream With God experience during Rosh Hashanah, 2014. If you didn’t, don’t click out. Because God is up to some crazy, neat stuff and our entire community is part of this. I thought my “Dream List” was crazy, BIG and filled with impossibilities but this past week, I was praying with a few friends and Christi said to me, “You aren’t praying big enough.” Now SUMites, I’ve been praying: 2 million souls 2 million books 2 million dollars This seems impossible to me. But I was so taken back by Christi’s declaration that I spent two days and asked God, “What would you want, Lord? What do you dream? What should I be dreaming?” Friends, take heed, when you ask God questions like this……. I went a laid down in the afternoon on Friday and over the next two hours God began... Read more →

Our Authority to "Pass It On"

Dear friends, I feel like I'm on a treasure hunt through the Bible and the Holy Spirit keeps revealing these nuggets of wisdom and knowledge. In fact, I shared this verse on Facebook last week because it keeps showing up: In him [Christ] lie hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge. — Colossians 2:3 NLT I have prayed into this for myself and for you, SUMites. Jesus wants to give us these treasures! We just have to ask for them. So, this latest treasure is one that the Holy Spirit showed me builds on a truth we have talked about in the past, but builds upon it in regard to our authority in Jesus, the authority spoken of in Luke 9:1-2 and Luke 10:17. Our authority given us through our salvation in Jesus. But this nugget is revealing that we have specific authority, which I find fascinating. First let's... Read more →

Spirit of Self-hatred - Annihilated.... Hallelujah!

There are many reasons why Dineen and I serve in ministry. There are times when it’s tough as people are broken, sick, oppressed and lost. We, the mismatched are truly on the front lines in our own homes, warring for our families. Ministry can be tough but it’s for moments like Tiffany’s that I get up every morning. It’s for victories like this that I pray with relentless power and love over our SUM family. It’s for lives that are touched by the love of Jesus that I remain always thankful to serve in any way, the Kingdom of God. Dineen and I continue to pray for your breakthrough. Love and hugs, Lynn Tiffany: LYNN! I HAVE TO SHARE WITH YOU AND MY FELLOW SUMITES!! I received the email for this post in my inbox on Monday at 1:07am (Post Title: It’s Demonic In Nature).

What Gods Love Looks Like

SUMite Family, I have to share that the word “family” has taken on an entirely larger implication in my life this past week. So, to say that you are my family, please know that I’m overwhelmed with authentic love and hope for you. Let me explain. I’m working on a new writing project and praise Jesus, the downloads are now flowing. It’s been astonishing. I’ve waited nearly a year for this past week and the few weeks that are ahead to hear the voice of God and His heart for the assignment He’s given to me. And this week in particular, I’m writing about the love of God. The love of a Father. Well, I don’t know how in the world you can encapsulate the love of God into a single chapter. However, I’ve asked the Holy Spirit to write this out because God will figure it out for me... Read more →

Breakthrough - Disappointment- Thanksgiving and More On Our Final Day Of Fasting

Hello Sumite Family – Church Without Walls. Can you believe it’s already the last day of our fast? Reading through the comments has been amazing. I have prayed for all of you. This has been an amazingly sweet time with our Lord. And as I spoke to Dineen yesterday about this fast, we marveled at all God has done, the tenderness He has displayed and the answers to our petitions. Dineen and I paused a moment and we turned our conversation to prayer: Jesus, we sure hope Rosheeda Lee is watching our community from heaven. What she started here years ago, this annual fast, has had lasting impact on us as individuals. Lord, we know that the prayers and declarations spoken during this tender time will bring about great glory for Your name and bring many into Your Kingdom. Lord, Jesus please hug Rosheeda for us.

The Destruction of the Demonic Warrior

It’s Thanksgiving this week. And I know all of us are very busy. And I’ve been very ill again. However, James 5 was in my daily Bible this week so I went for healing prayer. And I know my full healing is now decreed. AMEN! This week I have family in town and will likely be crazed entertaining but loving every minute of time I have with my mom who is visiting from Colorado. My daughter will be here and her friends, my son and my granddaughter. It’s going to be a great turkey day! Dineen and I are going to take the week off from posting.

The Unexpected Divine Appointments

Dear friends, as I walked and prayed Tuesday morning, I asked Abba for the words to share with you what I experienced at Bethel. I really wasn’t sure if I had anything definitive as God kept this visit very personal, which makes sense for this year of intimacy He’s called me to. But as I walked the memories and words began to flow (thank You, Abba, You are so good), like a kaleidoscope of images and colors that stood unique but together created the complete story of God’s intentions. Where to start? At the beginning of the journey. I was a bit anxious about making this trip on my own (I love road trips when hubby is in charge) and my car had been acting up a little. (I should share with you that I call my little VW Bug by the name of Gracie as she is a gift... Read more →

As I write this I haven’t a clue of what God has in store for us, but I know it will be good, because He is GOOD! Now back to the ACFW conference and the divine appointments God had planned for me. As I said, I knew there was more to hear from my new friend. I didn’t even ask God to orchestrate another meeting. I knew He would and told Him as much. This was really fun! The next day I had an appointment with an editor. After my appointment, I took a shortcut down the hallway to get back to the registration area.

Divine Appointments, Part 1

My friends, as you read this, Lynn and I are making our way to the Open Heavens Conference at Bethel Church in Redding, CA. This will be our third year going and I’m already praying for diving appointments. (Please pray with us on this and for our protection and safety as we travel. Thank you!) I prayed for this before the writers conference (American Christian Fiction Writers) I attended a couple weeks ago. And I told God it didn’t matter if they had anything to do with me or writing, I just wanted to see Him in action. Well, my week was packed with these appointments and it was the most fun I’ve had at one of these conferences to date. And I’ve been going for ten years now!

Why We Have Trouble Seeing God's Glory

Why We Have Trouble Seeing God's Glory... By Lynette Duquette (SUMite) Some of us in the SUM community were talking about God's word for us in 2014. What specific word is going to be used to propel us this year? I believe mine, through various circumstances, is glory...God's glory, and in these last days there is a hunger for God's glory. The visible, tangible type of glory that is overwhelming. The Hebrew word for glory is kabod. The root word means 'heavy'. I know there have been times during worship that God's glory was so 'heavy' I could hardly move. God's glory is also defined as His riches, power, justice, and majesty. How often do we cry out “show me Your glory”? I said that God gave me the word glory for the year so I started looking up scriptures referencing God's glory. I looked up sermons online about it....

A Tale of Prosperity

My friends, I have some news to share and I’m so happy I can share it with you, especially since so many of you prayed for me and my family over our financial situation. But let me start at the beginning of this God-filled story. At the end of each year I begin praying for words and Scriptures for each of my family members. Then during our week of fasting here at SUM, I set time aside to pray specifically for each one and listen to what He tells me. So, last January as I prayed for my husband, I heard the word “prosperity.” This is a word that can mean many things but in light of our financial struggles, which was part of my prayers, I felt this related to that.

Weekend Worship — Puppy Love

Let me tell you a story about a dog named Riley. Except that wasn't his name when we first met him. This wayward pup followed my husband and I one day as we walked the park. When we attempted to get a closer look and see if he had a collar, he dashed away. My husband and I finished our walk around the park and headed home. As we came closer to our house, we saw this pooch standing right in front of our house. I kid you not. Our new furry friend still evaded us as we drew closer, hightailing it down the street to what we hoped was his home. The next day my youngest daughter spotted a dog hiding under some bushes in a yard across the street. She finally coaxed him out and brought him home. Same dog. No collar. No chip.

Weekend Worship — A Holy Encounter?

My friends, on Wednesday I left you with my story about a young man Tyler who prayed over me. I want to talk more about the purpose of prophesy in the church down the road, but for now please check out 1 Corinthians 14:3 which says that prophesy is for edification and exhortation and consolation. I describe it as having a word of insight and/or encouragement for another person that is from Jesus given to us by the Holy Spirit. Ever give an encouraging word to a friend that you just knew in your heart was God’s truth for them? And when you told them, they lit up like a kid on Christmas morning? That’s giving a prophetic word to someone that’s intended to encourage and restore hope. (And don’t confuse prophets with the prophetic gift. You can walk in this gift and not be a prophet.

His Name was Tyler...

Hello dear friends. Last week I left off with a promise that I would tell you the story of Tyler who prayed over this unsuspecting woman. I wish I had a recording of all he said. I think he spoke continuously for a good five minutes and said so much. Later I wrote down as much as I could recall. I’m so glad that Abba knows it all because I know it came from His amazing heart. So it was late in the evening and the last worship and message of the day had ended. People were going up front for prayer for healing, many had already left, and the rest milled around talking and smiling with each other. It is truly an atmosphere so thick with God’s presence that you don’t want to leave it! And the debate within myself continued. Should I go up for prayer? Did I... Read more →

Marching Around Jericho Coming Soon smallMarching Around Jericho is a spiritual guide. As you read through the pages, powerful and transformative instruction and equipping takes place.
