The other day I was helping a friend put in an air conditioner, and as we dropped it into place, the skin on the side of my little finger got pinched between the AC and the window frame. My immediate response was, “Ouch, That hurt!” All of a sudden, I wasn’t a happy camper like I was just moments before. When I calmed down a bit, I realized that I was the one who had been careless, and it caused me a lot of pain.
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.
Chariot of Fire Blog
Living to love with Jesus is only possible if we are on good terms with the Holy Spirit. Last month I introduced four practices regarding the Holy Spirit that are essential if we are going to live to love with Jesus. If you missed last month’s Chariot of Fire, you can find it here. The Spirit of God lives in His children, and we have the calling, privilege, and blessing to walk by the Spirit.
I love Alma, my wife! We’ve known each other since we were 16 and been BFFs since we were 17. From the time I first saw her, I have wanted to know her and be close to her. It was lust and idolatry at first sight (just being honest), but as Jesus transformed my life, God’s kind of love emerged and grew. I consider it one of the supreme joys and blessings of my life to walk with her in life.
"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."
