Honor Where Honor is Due ~ Kim Potter

Good morning!  It’s been awhile since we posted here but we’d like to remind you that October is Pastor/Minister Appreciation Month!  Today we post a great article from Kim Potter and it’s all about honor, one of the Core Values of Places In The Father’s Heart!  We hope you’ll take time to read this valuable article and then respond as the Holy Spirit prompts you.

Roger and Gerri

This week, I have been revisiting a voice that spoke into my life for many years. Dr. Norvel Hayes. Although Brother Norvel is with the Lord now, the things he taught me continue to live on in me. Almost weekly I think of something he said or lessons he taught me. I am thankful for those times, and I want to […]

Do you ever wonder if righteous living pays any dividends?
Here at PITFH we have four important core values:  Integrity, Character, Honor and Loyalty.  In order to lead from those values, we have to live by them.
Let’s  take a look at them individually:
Integrity:  A firm adherence to a code of moral values.  This means living by God’s instruction in thought, word and deed without any division but in a state of completeness.
Character: A feature that makes up and distinguishes an individual.  In other words, who you are on the inside when no one is looking and always remaining firm in who you are.
Honor:  Placing others before yourself and in return others honor, respect and esteem you without your asking or expecting them to.  Maintaining a good name while others openly esteem […]

My Journey with Holy Spirit ~ Max Lucado

Author and pastor Max Lucado recently shared his journey to understand more about the person of the Holy Spirit. Along the way, he not only grew in his relationship with God, but he also received a gift from the Holy Spirit—his prayer language.

“A significant gift came my way,” Lucado said. “When I was 64 on a July morning, as I was praying, I began praying in tongues.”

In an interview with Stetzer ChurchLeaders Podcast, Lucado explained how he had earnestly been seeking God for a few weeks, asking if there was anything He wanted to give him.

“I had not done anything different except I came across the passage where the apostle Paul said ‘eagerly desire the spiritual gifts’…I guess I thought ‘Oh, I had all the gifts that I was supposed to […]

Miami’s Simple Solution to America’s Crime Surge

Francis Suarez, Mayor, Miami, FL

Published April 27, 2023 10:00am EDT Fox News

The successive waves of crime and rioting across American cities are unacceptable.
The recent surge in crime reflects a larger and tragic tale of two types of cities. It’s a tale between cities that invested in their police versus cities that defunded their police.
It’s a tale between two types of cities, where elected officials believe that the rule of law and public safety are the foundations of a free and prosperous society; versus another type of cities where elected officials fail to uphold the law, refuse to enforce the law, and blame those who follow the law, from police to small businesses, as the causes of crime.
In Miami, we chose differently. We took a […]

America is in a self-destructive frenzy ~ by Holy Spirit

Because the sentence against an evil work is not executed speedily, the hearts of the sons of men are fully set to do evil.   Ecclesiastes 8:11

A wise man’s heart turns him towards his right hand, but a fool’s heart toward his left.
Ecclesiastes 10:2

As it is written, God gave them a spirit (an attitude) of stupor, eyes that should not see and ears that should not hear, (that has continued) down to this very day. Romans 11:8 Note: A result of God’s judgment.

Therefore, God sends upon them a misleading influence, a working of error and a strong delusion to make them believe what is false, in order that all may be judged and condemned who did not believe in (who refused to adhere to, trust in, and rely on) the […]

13 People You Should Never Marry as a Christian


By Shelby Bowen
Charisma Magazine

Marrying someone with multiple red flags tends to never turn out well. The wait of finding that person God has for you can feel long and often hopeless, but I can assure you that jumping into a marriage with someone who is not the person you need to be with, will leave you with a lot more struggles in the long-term.

We sat down with Pastor Vlad and Lana Savchuk with Hungry Generation church to talk about the kind of qualities you want to make sure are not in your future spouse.

Here are the 13 red flags to keep an eye out for:

1) Their relationship with God is not a priority. The Bible says you can marry anyone in the […]

Explaining Asbury ~ Renee DeLoriea

There is no doubt, we are in a new season and Holy Spirit is on the move.  What began at Asbury University just outside Lexington, KY is spreading across the United States very rapidly.  Personally, we sense something very different about this move than previous ones like Toronto, Pensacola, Smithsville and others.  The something different is that the foundation of this move of the Holy Spirit is Father’s love…not just knowing about it but EXPERIENCING it.  This has been the major message of PITFH since 2004!
The following is an article published this week on the Chrisma Magazine app.  It puts into words what is in our hearts as we watch this new move with excitement.  We cannot express it any better than this article by Renee DeLoriea does, so we have […]

Stop Merchandising the Anointing! ~ by Roger and Gerri Taylor

Several years ago, Father began to speak to our hearts that we were merchandising the anointing by ‘selling’ merchandise on our website. He said, “Stop it! Stop trusting in the world’s weaponry of sales of merchandise for ministry finances.” At the time, the ministry continually struggled to make ends meet. Father always sustained us, but there was a deep work He wanted to do in our hearts regarding finances and fully trusting Him and His ability to provide for us. He specifically told us that if He gave us something to write or record that the message belonged to Him, not us! Therefore, we were to just put the message out there and not expect to gain anything by selling His message! After all, that’s what […]

Stay ~ By Craig Groeschel

I’ve thought many times about how different my life would be if I’d given up when I wanted to. My story could’ve become something like, “Yeah, I used to think I was supposed to be a pastor, but I gave it a shot and things didn’t work out. That’s just how it goes.”

I’m certain you’ll have to wrestle with occasional challenges in different seasons of your life: a boss you don’t think you can stand another day, a relationship that’s suddenly hurting, a dream that’s running out of resources, a move that’s failed your expectations. When you face difficulties, it’s natural to reconsider your huge, life-altering decisions. You might ask questions like these.

Should I take my chances, quit this job, and look for something else?
After my spouse’s affair—is it time […]

I’ve Been Ghosted – by Gerri Taylor

Recently in a sweet conversation with my son, he said that he’d been ghosted by others in the family. When I reflected on our conversation sometime later, I realized that I had no clue about what being ghosted meant. I decided that it must be something from the younger generation and I’d better get busy getting up to date! I was right and it didn’t take long for me to discover that I’ve been ghosted too!

Ghosting is the practice of ending a personal relationship with someone by suddenly and without explanation withdrawing from all communication – blocking you in their contact list, ignoring your emails or phone calls, etc. It doesn’t just happen in romance. You can be ghosted by a family member, friend, […]
