This morning in Golden Valley Church, Wes read out the prayer attributed to Sir Francis Drake [c1540 to 1596]. Drake was a product of his time, an era of ongoing war between the European sea-going nations, and valued as a hero to the English and a 'pirate' to the Spanish, whose territories he often raided… Continue reading PRAYER OF THE SEA CAPTAIN
As we approach another Christmas, and many of us are caught up in a flurry of activity, in addition to carrying concerns for church and nation, we do well to remember that the birth of Jesus in Bethlehem over 2,000 years ago is a powerful statement of the premium God places on simplicity. I was… Continue reading SIMPLE TRUTH

One of the things I was hearing as I was awakening today was, "Spirit of Absalom". I heard it clearly. I was aware of some of what it meant, and having spent yesterday's preaching in GVC talking about the battles of moving into a new season, I am reflecting on how this spirit works to… Continue reading ABSALOM SPIRIT
A few days ago I had one of those brief but memorable one-scene visions in a dream. I saw a roll of old film negatives hanging suspended. And I heard the words, "You're looking at the negatives!" I knew God was speaking clearly and powerfully to me. There was a rich play on words again.… Continue reading LOOKING AT NEGATIVES
I’m attempting to take time to prepare sessions for next week’s School of the Heart in Golden Valley Church, but I’m feeling very stirred prophetically about a few things, which I feel the need to put on paper.
I am aware right now of the word I shared a couple of months back in GVC, that it was a “Year of Change” – that May 17 to May 18 was that year. Much change would happen or could happen. But there was an emphasis on “MAY” [which was interesting as it was also the name of the Prime Minister, who at that time was standing for re-election]. This is a play on words. It’s about choice and it’s about giving God permission to do what He is wanting.
Even in this nation, as the ruling name is ‘May’ I believe there is an unprecedented season of choice before us.
