Thousands of African Souls - August 30

Good morning, Lord Jesus. You are One with the Father, One with the Holy Spirit; be One within me in my thoughts, desires, and choices today. ...

"Now when they heard (the Gospel of Jesus Christ), they were cut to the heart and said to Peter and the other apostles, 'Brothers, what should we do?' Peter said to them, 'Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ so that your sins may be forgiven, and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. For this promises is for you, for your children, and all who are far away, everyone whom the Lord our God calls to Him.' And he testified with many other arguments and exhorted them, saying, 'Save yourselves from this corrupt generation.' So those who welcomed his message were baptized, and that day about three thousand were added" (Acts 2:37-41).


We've been preaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ in the village of Sabasaba, Kenya and the surrounding villages northeast of Nairobi for two weeks. Over one thousands souls have been saved! That's only counting those who came forward for prayer and who also filled out decision cards for follow-up ministry with the local pastors and altar counselors. There were also waves and waves of children and others who held up their hands to welcome Jesus into their hearts who didn't make into our official records, but whose names are now written on the pages of the Lamb's Book of Life and upon the heart of our Father in heaven. And there were also waves and waves of many who received a deep touch of Your healing power and freeing grace in spirit, soul, and body every day. Praise God!


Lord, I'm so honored, so humbled, and so excited You would send me and our team to Africa in this apostolic, evangelistic ministry. I'm so encouraged to see how Your Holy Spirit brought together so many pastors and leaders from so many diverse churches and traditions in this region to pray and proclaim the truth and the heart of God "all with one accord in one place" (Acts 2:1, NKJV). All the pastors are talking about the new faces they see coming to the churches for worship, and all them are declaring, "Revival has come!" to this region of Africa. Praise God!


As we prepare to go home to America, O Lord, keep Kenya and Africa in my heart. Thank You for all the invitations to return. Thank You for all the Divine connections and life-long friendships You've given me. I'm trusting You to provide the funds and the time for me to come again as soon as You're ready to send me back. And as Your Holy Spirit declares through evangelist Rienhard Bonnke everywhere he goes to proclaim Your Gospel in this land, "All Africa will be saved!" I'm so excited You've allowed me to be a part of what You've doing throughout this continent in our generation before our eyes! In Jesus' name I pray, Amen.


Be encouraged today! In the Love of Jesus, Tommy Hays

The City and Kingdom of Our God - August 24

Good morning, Lord Jesus. Your name is the name above every name. May I live this day to honor Your name wherever You send me and however You lead me. ...

"By faith Abraham obeyed when he was called to set out for a place that he was to receive as an inheritance; and he set out, not knowing where he was going. By faith he stayed for a time in the land he had been promised, as in a foreign land, living in tents, as did Isaac and Jacob, who were heirs with him of the same promise. For he looked forward to the city that has foundations, whose architect and builder is God" (Hebrews 11:8-10).


My inheritance - like Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob - is the City of God, the fullness of the Kingdom of God. This City is not built upon a foundation of bricks or stone; it's built upon the foundation of the principles of the Kingdom of God and the ever-abiding, ever-increasing Presence of the King. And in every place along the journey between here and there, I'm a foreigner and a traveler, pressing forward, looking higher for this Kingdom to come in my heart and in every dimension of my life, here on earth as it is in heaven.


My thoughts and hopes, like those of Abraham and his sons and daughters of the promises and inheritance of God, compel me to always keep seeking more - more of You, more of Your Presence, more of Your Kingdom in my life. "If they had been thinking of the land that they had left behind, they would have had opportunity to return. But as it is, they desired a better country, that is, a heavenly one. Therefore, God is not ashamed to be called their God; indeed, He has prepared a City for them" (v. 11:15-16).


This City that I seek, this Kingdom that I desire, is not just a place I'll go when I die. It's a place in my heart that increases with every prayer and every declaration of my commitment to You - entrusting my will to Your will, my thoughts to Your thoughts, my desires to Your desires. "The Kingdom of God is not coming with things that can be observed; nor will they say, 'Look; here it is!' or 'There it is!' For, in fact, the Kingdom of God is within you" (Luke 17:20-21). "For the Kingdom of God is not food and drink but righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit" (Romans 14:17).


So no matter what city or village I find myself, whether at home or away, I'm seeking that place You've prepared for me. No matter what nation in the earth to which You've sent me to proclaim Your name and the coming of Your Kingdom, I'm just a traveler in a foreign land, looking forward to the City to come, to the fullness of the Kingdom to come - more in my heart and my life every day. This is "the City of God, the holy habitation of the Most High. God is in the midst of it; it shall not be moved" (Psalm 46:4-5). It shall not be moved because it stands firm on the solid foundation of the principles of the Kingdom of God and in the ever-abiding, ever-increasing Presence of the King of the Kingdom in my heart by Your Spirit. In Jesus' name I pray, Amen.

Friends, about 1,000 pastors and leaders have come from many cities and denominations for our Pastors and Leaders Conference in Thika, Kenya for 3 days this week. Some of our team is teaching and ministering to them (Wesley Paul, Patti Patrone, Mike Gonzales, and myself) while others are engaged in commuity outreach with a free dental clinic (Dr. Gary and Ann Olsen, Jackie Seeley) and painting and restoring the Sabasaba Police Station (Jeff Bealmear and volunteers).


Later this week I'll be preaching with Wesley Paul and the other evangelists at our main Sabasaba Gospel Festival, north of Nairobi, where they are expecting 30-40,000 people over the 4 day festival. Please keep praying for us and for the people of Kenya! God bless you!


The leader of the city-wide Pastors' Fellowship in Kenol, Kenya told me they estimated that 3,000 people were there Sunday night at the closing night of the satellite Gospel Festival I've been preaching outdoors for 4 nights! On the last night a wave of people came for salvation, another wave for healing and deliverance, and another wave for the baptism of the Holy Spirit and fire with a passion to live a radical life for Jesus. Praise God! All the other evangelists in each of 5 cities preaching these Satellite Festivals on the same 4 nights were giving reports a mighty move of God's Spirit in this region! Thank you for your prayers!


Here's a short video that Dr. Wesley Paul and I made for our trip: http://www.youtube.com/embed/NMV3bUagljM Please pass it along to anyone who may be interested in joining with us in prayer or financial support.

"To Care for Orphans and Widows" - August 22

Good morning, Lord Jesus. You are Lord of Kenya, Lord of all nations, and Lord of me. ...

"Religion that is pure and undefiled before God, the Father, is this: to care for orphans and widows in their distress, and to keep oneself unstained by the world" (James 1:27).


After preaching and praying for everyone Sunday morning at the Redeemed Gospel Church in Kenol, Kenya, Your Spirit spoke to my heart to ask if there was a widow in our gathering. So I interrupted the pastor's benediction to ask if I could share what Your Spirit just said. When I did, a woman at the very back of the church timidly raised her hand. So I went to her to put the roll of money in her hands You told me to give from my heart. You had been working something in my heart during our worship and I had no idea what You were about do our in all of our hearts.


This church had amazed me at their incredible generosity among the people, most of whom would be seen as very poor by the standards of my own nation. A young man had left his new bicycle at the altar a few weeks before in sacrificial giving to the ministry of the Kingdom through this church, and within a week his Asian boss told him to go buy a brand new motorcycle for himself. He pushed it up to the front of the church during the offering time for our Gospel Festival to show everyone his proof of Your spiritual principle that you can't out-give God.


As soon as I put the money in the widow's hand and began to pray a blessing for her, she began to weep and wail. The pastor called her to the front. And he told the congregation that this woman had come to him earlier to tell him she had no money for her needs and that he felt led to tell her that day "God Himself will provide the money to you." Everyone began to weep and wail throughout the church. Then the pastor asked me to pray for any who would come to the altar to receive a generous heart of giving to the Lord for the blessing of His people. As almost everyone came, they spontaneously began laying down where they kneeled their deeply sacrificial gifts of their very limited resources out of their hugely generous hearts. And church was already supposed to be over!


O Lord, give me a generous heart. Let Your generous Spirit fill my spirit. Let the kingdoms of this world become the kingdoms of our God, as we learn to give first to You and the ministry of Your Kingdom however and whenever You lead. Give me a greater joy in giving and a greater expectancy of increase in the great harvest to come - here in Kenya and in all the nations of the earth. In Jesus' name I pray, Amen.

"Go Into All the World" - August 19

Good morning, Lord Jesus. Come into my heart and into my day; rule over my life and over my ways. ...

"And He said to them, 'Go into all the world and proclaim the Good News to the whole creation. The one who believes and is baptized will be saved; but the one who does not believe will be condemned. And these signs will accompany those who believe: by using My name they will cast out demons; they will speak in new tongues; they will pick up snakes in their hands, and it they drink any deadly thing, it will not hurt them; they will lay their hands on the sick, and they will recover' " (Mark 16:15-18).


You've sent me to Kenya to proclaim Your good news. And I have found a people here in the Body of Christ who are passionate in their praise and free in their worship. They are easy with their smiles and fervent in their prayers. And they care deeply about their neighbors who need to know the love of God revealed in Jesus Christ.


Last night on the first night of the Gospel Festival I'm preaching in Kenol, Kenya, north of Niarobi, a large crowd gathered at the platform we built in the Central Market. As people came from their work and their homes, the crowd began to grow as we began to worship in the heart of the city. About seventeen churches, from the various streams of the Body of Christ have come together for this satellite festival - one of five going on at the same time in five different cities in this region before our major festival next week.


It seemed most in the crowd already knew the Lord, but just across the road, in full sound and view of our gathering were the crowds of the city market places. And I spoke much of my message about the saving power of Christ and the healing love of God directly them over our loud speakers. Some would look and stare. Others would risk a glance. But all were hearing the Word of God going forth to their hearts and breaking through the spiritual barriers that are beginning to crumble and fall.


Some came forward to receive Christ in their hearts in response to the Good News. Some were set free from pain in their bodies as the Spirit of God moved among them in prayer. And with the expectant faith and fervent prayers in the power of Your name, many more will respond in the next days to come. And as Your Word goes forth in these five cities in these four days, surely Your heavens are opening wide over this region to push back the darkness and bring many souls in the Kingdom of Your Light.


Thank You, Lord, for sending me here and giving me this honor to join with this team to exalt Your name and proclaim Your Good News. Help me humble myself to hear the words You give me speak and faith to believe in the great harvest You'll bring as these words of Good News go forth in this land. Whether in person or in prayer, You send us all into all the world to share this hope that burns in our hearts. In Jesus' name I pray, Amen.

Set Apart and Sent Forth in the Spirit - August 16

Good morning, Lord Jesus. Your name be high and lifted up, here in my heart and throughout the moments of my day. ...

"While they were worshipping the Lord and fasting, the Holy Spirit said, 'Set apart for Me Barnabus and Saul for the work to which I have called them.' Then after fasting and praying they laid their hands on them and sent them off" (Acts 13:2-3).


Holy Spirit of the Living God, You are the Promise of the Father upon me; and You are the Spirit of Christ within me (Romans 8:9). You've been stirring in my heart with a burden for the people of Africa. And today You've set me apart to send me there!


As You anointed and empowered Barnabus and Saul to carry the Gospel of the Kingdom of God to the people of the nations, so You've anointed and empowered our team to go to the people of Kenya to share the Good News of the love of God in Jesus Christ. We're honored and excited to go in Your name and the power of Your love. "For I am not ashamed of the Gospel; it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who has faith ..." (Romans 1:16).


May souls be saved and spirits be awakened! May blind eyes be opened and deaf ears unstopped! May bondages be broken and demons cast out! May You heal the brokenhearted and set the captives free, as we proclaim the coming of the Kingdom of God and see You demonstrate it in Your mighty power and unfailing love! (Matthew 10:7-8) Just as on the journeys of Barnabus and Saul, may it be said of us that "(our) speech and proclamation were not with plausible words of wisdom, but with a demonstration of the Spirit and of power" (1 Corinthians 2:14).


Come, Holy Spirit! We don't go proclaiming our selves or our names or our power. "For I will not venture to speak of anything except what Christ has accomplished through me to win obedience from the Gentiles, by word and deed, by the power of signs and wonders, by the power of the Spirit of God, so that from (Lexington) and as far around as (Nairobi), (we) have fully proclaimed the Good News of Christ!" (Romans 15:18-19) In Jesus' name I pray, Amen.


Be encouraged today! In the Love of Jesus, Tommy Hays

Malleable - August 15

Good morning, Lord Jesus. Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, I entrust to You my spirit, soul, and body. I want all of You to fill all of me, every dimension of Your Being filling every dimension of my being - this day and every day. ...

"Now the Lord spoke to Abram, 'Go from your country and your kindred and your father's house to a land that I will show you. I will make of you a great nation, and I will bless you, and make your name great, so that you will be a blessing..." (Genesis 12:1-3).


The father of faith trusted You with all his heart, though he was as human as all of us in the wrestlings of his heart. But a faithful heart is a believing heart - choosing to believe that You know the best for us, choosing to believe that You want the best for us, and choosing to believe that You will reveal Your will for us in the journey of our faith. "For all who are led by the Spirit of God are children of God" (Romans 8:14).


Abraham's heart was tender to Your leading and malleable to Your shaping. He was willing to venture forward, adapt to his changing circumstances, as he did his best to follow You. He obeyed You because he trusted you. And as he trusted You and obeyed You, You kept leading him and changing him in the journey. Sometimes You led him to take simple, steady steps in the everyday choices of his life. And sometimes You led him to get up and go to faraway places into unknown circumstances, where his faith would be tested in his choice to go and every choice after that along the way. At times he was tempted to take matters into his own hands with this his own wisdom, but attitude of his heart and the perspective of his spirit became the banner over his life, "Abraham believed God, and it was reckoned to him as righteousness" (Romans 4:3).


Lord, give me a believing heart. Give me the faith of Abraham. Make my heart tender and malleable, as You fashion my faith to be strong in You. Whether life changing or simply life extending, let every choice I make in the journey of my faith be made by the leading of Your Spirit. I'm one of the children of Abraham and one of the children of God, doing my best by Your grace to walk in the way that leads to life. In Jesus' name I pray, Amen.

House on the Rock - August 12

Good morning, Lord Jesus. King of kings and Lord of lords, be King of my heart and Lord of my life this day and every day. ...

"Everyone then who hears these words of Mine and acts on them will be like a wise man who built his house on rock. The rain fell, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house, but it did not fall, because it had been founded on rock. And everyone who hears these words of Mine and does not act on them will be like a foolish man who built his house on sand. The rain fell, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell - and great was its fall!" (Matthew 7:24-27).


My friend Sylvia is a financial advisor who's radical in her obedience to Your voice and conservative in her advice to her clients, grounded in the leading of Your Spirit. And though the markets rise and fall like waves crashing against the rocks and sand in these past weeks, her clients' investments have been secure and even prospered. She only invests in Christian companies, operating with Christian values, where the present leadership tithes into the Kingdom of God.


It seems in these days You are beginning to shake all that can be shaken so that only what can't be shaken remains (Hebrews 12:27). It seems You are beginning to make a more clear distinction between the ways of the world and the ways of God, between worldly success by the spirit of greed and mammon and the advance of the Kingdom of God by the Spirit of God. As your Word decrees and declares: "My Spirit abides among you; do not fear. For thus says the Lord of hosts: Once again, in a little while, I will shake the heavens and the earth and the sea and the dry land; and I will shake all the nations, so that the treasure of all nations shall come, and I will fill this house with splendor, says the Lord of hosts" (Haggai 2:5-7).


Lord, give me a heart that trusts in You, in faith believing that You are my Rock and Refuge, steadfast and true through all we endure. My treasure is in You, and my faith is my wealth. Guide my thoughts to make wise choices each day, grounded in the leading of Your Spirit and built upon the solid rock of the Word of God and the principles of the Kingdom of God. Let me set my hope "on God Who richly provides us with everything for our enjoyment. (I am) to do good, to be rich in good works, generous, and ready to share, thus storing up for (myself) the treasure of a good foundation for the future, so that (I) may take hold of the life that really is life" (1 Timothy 6:17-19). In Jesus' name I pray, Amen.

Refuge in the One Who Knows and Cares - August 11

Good morning, Lord Jesus. You are my Rock and Refuge. I stand firm in Your strength this day. ...


"O Lord, You have searched me and have known me. You know when I sit down and when I rise up; You discern my thoughts from far away" (Psalm 139:1-2).


Whether I'm down or whether I'm up, You see me and know me. You know my struggles and my joys, the heights of my faith and the depths of my fears. But You don't see me merely to observe me; You see me to reach out to me and reach into me to journey with me through the highs and lows, the ins and outs, and all the twists and turns along the way. And You lead me to find my refuge in the One Who knows and cares.


These seem to be days of much uncertainty. Even the economies of nations and the stability of kingdoms seem to rise and fall with the tide of the sea. But You are the One Who steps into the uncertainties of these days and the uncertainties of my soul. You remind me that You are faithful and You infuse me with Your strength. "Therefore we will not fear, though the earth should change, though the mountains shake in the heart of the sea; though its waters roar and foam, though the mountains tremble with its tumult... The Lord of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge" (Psalm 46:2-7). In Jesus' name I pray, Amen.

Always Abounding - August 9

Good morning, Lord Jesus. The main thing is to keep the main thing the main thing. And You're the Main Thing. Be the foundation and the focus of this day and my life. ...

"The Lord descended in the cloud and stood with him there, and proclaimed the name, 'The Lord, the Lord, a God merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and abounding in steadfast love and faithfulness' " (Exodus 34:6).


Lord, I look up as You descend. I open up as You enter in. As You stood by Moses, I thank You for standing by me. As You surrounded him with the cloud of Your glory so You fill me with the manifest Presence of Your Spirit. This is the gift each of us have as children of God in Christ alone. "By this we know that we abide in Him and He in us, because He has give us of His Spirit" (1 John 4:13).


By Your abiding Spirit, I know You are merciful and gracious to me, that You are slow to anger toward me, that You are always abounding in steadfast love for me, and that Your faithfulness endures to me and to all generations who seek Your face and call on Your name. You are good; You are good; You are so good to me. And I want to honor You with all of me. In Jesus' name I pray, Amen.

The Singing God - August 2

Good morning, Lord Jesus. You are One with the Father, One with the Holy Spirit, and One within me in the communion of prayer. ...


"The Lord, your God, is in your midst, a warrior Who gives victory; He will rejoice over you with gladness, He will renew you in His love, He will exult over you with loud singing as on a day of festival" (Zephaniah 3:17-18).


You sang the song of the Lord over us last night through Your minstrel and prophetic psalmist, Heather Butler from Wales. By Your Spirit, You renewed us in Your love, strengthened us in Your power, forgave us in Your mercy, and encouraged us in Your hope. With songs of deliverance You set us free and with the sound of healing You gathered us up. You are a singing God.


Lord, let Your song for my life arise within my soul. Let the cells of my body and every tissue of my being come into harmony with Your will. No matter what I go through, no matter I go, I go with Your song in my heart. In Jesus' name I pray, Amen.


Be encouraged today! In the Love of Jesus, Tommy Hays

Trustworthy - August 1

Good morning, Lord Jesus. Your name be glorified in my heart and through my life today. ...

"Think of us this way, as servants of Christ and stewards of God's mysteries. Moreover, it is required of stewards that they be found trustworthy" (1 Corinthians 4:1-2).


Father, I want to be found trustworthy. I want to be faithful to You and faithful with all You have entrusted to me. Endue me with wisdom and cover me with grace to steward the gifts You've given to me to live out my calling and fulfill my destiny in Christ.


Lord, let me not bury my talents, like the unfaithful servant, tempted to give in to the fear of failure or be overwhelmed with self-focus on my weaknesses instead of Your strength, on my unworthiness instead of Your greatness (Matthew 25:25). Let all that You've purposed in Your heart to accomplish through my life come to pass, leaving nothing behind and nothing undone.


I've seen enough to know that path is not easy, but it will be well worth it. "My brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of any kind, consider it nothing but joy, because you know that the testing of your faith produces endurance, and let endurance have its full effect, so that you may be mature and complete, lacking in nothing" (James 1:2-4).


O Lord, my God, You are trustworthy and true. And I want to grow up in Christ to be like You (Romans 8:29). This is my desire; this is my choice - as best as I can and all by Your grace. In Jesus' name I pray, Amen.


Be encouraged today! In the Love of Jesus, Tommy Hays
