Some people love to give. It thrills them to share with others the blessings God has given to them. My observation is that most givers also love to receive gifts. It’s their love language. I think it might also be God’s love language. As I think about what I’ve learned about the Father and the Son this year, His joy in giving should not be overlooked.
Introducing The Spirit of Elijah Ministries
The Spirit of Elijah Ministries mission is to build the Kingdom of God and the local church by equipping men and their families to be disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ. This mission is accomplished through speaking at men's, family, and couples' retreats, church conferences, homeschool conventions, as well as through audio and video resources and printed materials.
Listen as Norm Wakefield explains how the purpose of this ministry is grounded in scripture - particularly Malachi 4:6 and Romans 1:16.
Raised Up with Christ
The hope of the gospel is that you can live life now in the presence of God, in fellowship with Him, and according to the truth revealed in Christ. You can live in heaven now! The outstanding difference between men who know Jesus and everyone else is that they live by looking at the things which are not seen, the things which are eternal. From what perspective do you live each day?
"Three years ago at the Teach Them Diligently Conference in Omaha, NE my son and I met you. At that time his dad had just left us and was living a very immoral lifestyle. You gave us two resources: Teenagers 101 and Equipping Men. We have just finished those two and have been reaping rewards from the wisdom gleaned! We can not thank you enough!

"I enjoyed listening to your talks at the CHAP convention. For me, you were the highlight and blessing of the entire weekend. I intended to get to other speakers but ended up skipping others to catch all of yours."

"I just would like to say how Mr. Wakefield has changed my life. (We know it's the Lord who does the changing :-) I thoroughly enjoyed the message that you gave us at the FEAST conference on How to Build a Foundation of Faith. Thanks so much for your ministry."

Chariot of Fire Blog
The Apostle Paul wrote, “I do not cease giving thanks for you, while making mention of you in my prayers; that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to you a spirit of wisdom and of revelation in the knowledge of Him” (Eph. 1:16-17). We need to know God, and the wonderful truth is that God wants us to know Him. Apparently knowing God is a gift from God, the Father. He must also give us wisdom and revelation if we are to know Him. I pray with Paul that as you read this month’s Chariot of Fire, you’ll be given a spirit of wisdom and of revelation in the knowledge of God.
