“The Holy Spirit is in me for my sake; but He’s upon me for your sake.” - Bill Johnson I love reflecting on the promises of God. In fact, I spend a lot of time remembering the things God has promised me through the Bible and through the words people have spoken over my life. I spend a lot of time listening for or waiting to discover more promises He has yet to speak over me....

It’s been two and a half years. Finally, I release my sophomore album, FTK. Enjoy!
wise words from the fresh prince
“Remember, danger is very real. But fear is a choice.” Scientologist or not, Will Smith speaks some powerful words in the trailer for his upcoming movie, After Earth. We can’t always control the circumstances that face us, but we always have a choice in how we decide to face them. Fear, anxiety, discouragement, depression, hopelessness, etc, are always a choice. They are responses to external...
lovers vs. workers
Today was one of those days at work. I looked at my to-do list and started blanking out, staring into the megapixels between each word. I finally mustered up enough energy to start my work but fizzled out within 15 minutes. There was no joy, no passion, no desire to do anything I was doing. I felt like a prisoner in the jail cell of my office, looking out the window into the free world. It...
failure is always an option
“When doubt seeps in, you got two roads. You can take either road. They’ll tell you failure is not an option. That is ridiculous! Failure is always an option. Failure is the most readily available option at all times… but it’s a choice. You can choose to fail or you can choose to succeed.” - Chael Sonnen (A UFC fighter I previously could not stand)
created to be creative
One of my biggest pet peeves is when people say, “I’m not very creative.” Whenever I hear that, I just want to throw down some holy slappage. It stands to reason that if we were made in the image of God and if His Spirit dwells in us, then we bear the image and the Spirit of the most creative being in the universe. I think about Adam in the Garden of Eden and how creative he...
it's not by zeal
I’ve seen many zealous believers in my life. Maybe it’s a Korean thing. Their lives were characterized by continual striving, reaching to fulfill the commands of the Lord. These believers often found great success in their respective ministries. But what stood out to me the most about them was their eyes. I could see they were weary. While their zeal and ferver were always an...
I grew up attending an extremely conservative Christian school. While I fully appreciate the impact this school had on my life, there were some things that to me were off. You wouldn’t believe some of the experiences I had there. I remember one time in 5th grade, I brought a burned CD of mp3’s to our class party. I had no idea pirating music was illegal at the time, so I was...
the most important ministry
Our primary ministry isn’t the ministry of evangelism, healing, deliverance, teaching, preaching, outreach, etc. Our primary ministry should be the ministry of ministering to the Lord. Worshipping Him in a manner befitting of all He deserves should be our greatest desire. The practice of lavishing extravagant praise upon our King is a ministry that’s lost its importance in our...

Physical activity has been known to increase your appetite. I remember way back in the day when I used to hit up the gym consistently, I would get home with a tremendous appetite. I would be able to scarf down way more food than I normally could. My body needed the extra energy. My body made room for more. If I wasn’t exercising, my body wouldn’t feel the need to make room for...
Stewarding the prophetic words God’s given you is one of the most refreshing and strengthening things you could do. Recollecting God’s promises over your life help hone your vision in every season. I went through my 2010-2011 journal last night, reading over the promises that were spoken over my life. It’s amazing to see the words that have come to pass and the words that are...
It’s been an exciting week here in the Bay Area. The San Francisco Giants just won the World Series and people are going nuts! I’m reading article after article about some of the crazy things fans have done as a result of our victory. Yesterday, there was a parade held in honor of the Giants where hundreds of thousands gathered to flood the streets of San Francisco to celebrate and...
dead and gone for good.
Satan has no resurrection power. The things of the enemy do not have the ability to come back to life. Once they’re dead, they’re dead for good. What I find in my own life is that there are things God has declared dead and gone that I still struggle with as if they were still alive. When we battle against what God has already deemed dead, we wrestle with corpses. It’s a...
Let my worship be Poured extravagantly From down deep inside Like perfume upon Your feet Let my honor ring Louder than the songs I sing Wasting all I am Lavishing my love upon the King I will never stop pouring out my love I will never stop pouring out my love, my love, my love.
Despite what we feel, He is still worthy of our worship and adoration. Singing, dancing, shouting, laughing, and clapping. There’s never a moment He isn’t deserving of it all.

go go gadget leg | indonesia It was the first night we were scheduled to do a night-time village revival and all of us were pretty nervous. We’d seen our pastors and leaders lead services like these, but it was the first time any of us were heading it up ourselves. When we arrived at the village site, it was like the set of a movie scene. Houses were shaped to look like boats, lights...
living the unnatural life: Chik-fil-A. →
davidyi80: People keep asking me what I think about the whole Chik-fil-A issue. So here’s my answer. I’ll keep my “Christian” comments at the end. 1. I realize that I’m not invested into these political media issues as much as I might have many years ago. Meaning, I do think it an important issue, but only…
the art of honor
In this season, God’s been unveiling to me a buried treasure found in the body of Christ. It’s the art of honor. This last year, God’s been teaching me how to honor my pastors, leaders, parents, and those in authority over me. But I feel now that God is having me discover the power and necessity of honoring my brothers and sisters. For me, it’s an easy thing to honor my pastors and my leaders,...
Micayla Medek, 23, was also among the dead, her father’s cousin, Anita Busch, told the Associated Press. Busch said the news, while heartbreaking, was a relief for the family after an agonizing day of waiting for news. “I hope this evil act … doesn’t shake people’s faith in God,” she said.

shell shock | thailand We were visiting a missions center in Chiang Rai, Thailand, that was to be a place where missionaries would be filled with the fire of God and sent out to set the nation ablaze. As we prayed for the pastor there, he shared about a man who had been saved as a result of their ministry not too long ago. He asked if we could lay our hands and pray for this man. This man had...

flyerthanangels: There is a difference between valley-level revelation, mountaintop-level revelation, and heavenly-level revelation. For too long the Church has been satisfied with valley-level revelation - that is, revelation from the pit, revelation from the midst of suffering, persecution, and sin. We’ve…

the duck crusade of ‘65 | indonesia It’s every bit as breathtaking as people describe it. The historic land offers reminiscent reminders of the power of God that moved during that year of 1965, when over 80,000 ducks received Christ into their hearts. Yes. We had stumbled upon the holy ground of the legendary Duck Crusade of ‘65, where Reverend Dustin Duck of Medan,...

We began sharing about our crusades...

Last year, I had a gathering with some of my closest friends and we spent time in prayer, prophesying life into one another, all topped off with delicious desserts.

The appetite of the believer is so unique. Today I found myself asking God, is it really possible to hunger for you? The Bible tells us that we lack nothing, that we are fully satisfied in Him in every way. If we are full, how can we long to be filled? How is it possible for us to be hungry for Him? The spiritual stomach of the believer is ever expanding from a place of fullness yet never...
I used to be so afraid of going into fulltime ministry because of one terrifying belief: that burnout was inevitable. Growing up, I saw so many parents, pastors, leaders, teachers, and servants leaving church because they were burnt out. If not that, they would step down from their position and ghost their way through ministry. What I’m coming to realize is that burnout is nothing more...
