When God raises up His change agents it will sometimes involve being placed in a cave of isolation. This article illustrates how King David overcame being in the Cave of Adullam, and how we too can overcome and learn the things God desires us to learn in our own times of isolation (and preparation). Understand why each of us may be thrust into our own cave of isolation.

Margaret Thatcher said, "The problem with Socialism is that you eventually run out of other people's money."

If you are being impacted by the current economic downturn let me encourage you not to fear! We know who holds the future. And that is Who we place our trust in. Realize that fear is not from God. 2 Tim 1:7 tells us that "For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind. "

Sadly, research shows that people today are increasingly less satisfied with their jobs and see little or no purpose to their work life. Yet in Ecclesiastes 5:18 (NIV) we read, "Then I realized that it is good and proper for a man to eat and drink, and to find satisfaction in his toilsome labor under the sun during the few days of life God has given him - for this is his lot."
Workplace small groups and ministries impact people where they live most of the week. The workplace is a part of the Great Commission. It provides a way to meet and reach those who are seeking spiritual answers.
Bible Prayer Fellowship • General
This is a record of something God did 130 years ago in New York City. It illustrates how God has started every harvest time in history, through the concerted prayer of his people. Toward the middle of the last century the glow of earlier religious awakenings had faded. America was prosperous and felt little need to call on God. But in the 1850s...
Bradley Stuart • Hearing God
Often as people learn to hear from God and begin to move into hearing clearly from Him, they start to ask: "What do I do with what I sense the Lord is saying to me? Is it all coming from the Father? And how do I sift through it all to discern how much of it is me, the Lord or even the enemy?" This lesson has its origins in these questions.
Os Hillman • The Faith at Work Movement
I began traveling and speaking about faith and work issues in 1996 after having a career in advertising. God led me to study the topic of faith and work and its role in the average person's life. I began writing and speaking on the subject. Since that time I have been in twenty-five countries and spoken to hundreds of thousands of people about their calling in the workplace and the value it has by God. I have encouraged believers to know that their calling in their working life is a Holy calling, not a second-class calling. Now, twenty-five nations later and ten books later, I have learned one overwhelming fact: Christians do not have a theology of work.

I was in Norway during the most recent economic events that have caused such a stir throughout the world. I heard people tell me that the U.S. financial markets were collapsing and unprecedented losses would occur.

The global economy has produced many benefits for the nations of the world. Through the internet, people in Africa can market products that can be purchased in Chile with the click of a mouse. On a global scale, commerce is conducted and money changes hands instantaneously between continents. We live in a world where travel between continents is common and commerce is the key. People all over the world are inter-connected and inter-dependent. Yet as we have seen in recent weeks, the economies of all nations are inter-connected, as well. Could it be that God was actually speaking of our day when he spoke to the prophet Daniel 2500 years ago? Dan 12:4 But you Daniel, keep this prophecy a secret; seal up the book until the time of the end. Many will rush here and there, and knowledge will increase. NLT
