Stand with the LORD

Morning Thought: Standing with the Lord gives you strength. My daughter is growing up. Recently, she went out with her friends without any parents. This was a first. I gave her money and dropped her off at the movies. But then she said, “Dad, can you buy the tickets with me, I’ve never done this before.” So I went and stood with her at the counter while she bought their tickets. She was happy to do it all by herself; she just wanted me to stand with her. I saw that when you stand with the Lord and he stands with you, you find courage to do his will. I believe that’s why Elijah had boldness to stand against Ahab. Listen to what he says, “As the LORD, the God of Israel lives, before whom I stand, surely there shall be neither dew nor rain these years, except by my word” (‭‭1 Kings‬ ‭17:1‬, NASB‬‬).

I was born and raised in Long Island, New York. In 1999 I migrated to Australia, married my beautiful wife, Anna, and we planted a church and Bible School. We are now the proud parents of four children ranging in age from six to twenty. We are still pastoring the same beautiful church, Church on the Park, in the the heart of Brisbane, Australia ( We also continue to teach our awesome students at Holy Fire Ministry Training School ( I love to write and encourage God's people. And something that many people don't know, I'm a DJ as well (aka DJ SOL Vibes).
