Do not be afraid, what is conceived in you is from the Holy Spirit

I love Christmas, and for many reasons, but particularly because it is about hope! Hope for God’s miraculous intervention, hope for God’s grace and forgiveness, and hope for a future full of love and joy. God has a plan for our lives and it is a good one. Each December I enjoy looking into the next year and anticipating the new things God has in store. Even so, this season presents a challenge to many.

For some, the holiday season can be a difficult time. I know that many of you feel like the year has not gone as you had planned, and that circumstances are truly overwhelming. Please know you are not alone. Your WMF family loves you, cares about what you are going through, and is praying for God to intervene on your behalf. And God is moving.

In the middle of all the noise of this busy season, I believe God would like to speak a word to you. This word comes directly from the Christmas story.

This is how the birth of Jesus the Messiah came about: His mother Mary was pledged to be married to Joseph, but before they came together, she was found to be pregnant through the Holy Spirit. Because Joseph her husband was faithful to the law, and yet did not want to expose her to public disgrace, he had in mind to divorce her quietly.

But after he had considered this, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream and said, “Joseph son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary home as your wife, because what is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit21 She will give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins.” (Matt 1:18-21)

This is what I believe God would like you to hear:

Even though the circumstances you are facing look difficult…
Do not be afraid, because what is conceived in you is from the Holy Spirit.

Even though you feel like you are at the end of your rope, and hope is gone…
Do not be afraid, because what is conceived in you is from the Holy Spirit.

Even though you feel like you are under attack…
Do not be afraid, because what is conceived in you is from the Holy Spirit.

Step into the fullness of your calling… because what is conceived in you is from the Holy Spirit.

Be encouraged! God has sent us hope! Jesus is Lord!

Merry Christmas,

Tim McKitrick

It's Time to Contend for Our Faith

Over the last few weeks, especially at the recent Oklahoma, Arkansas, and Missouri WMF events, I have felt led to encourage those around me to contend for the things that are important in their lives.

We must fight for a position of faith. We must fight for the victory and peace about the matters that concern us, our family, our ministry, our country…. To do so will mean to press into the Spirit of God until we receive an answer from heaven, a word from God, the faith and peace that means we have prayed through concerning the matters at hand.

We are in a battle, whether we are actively engaged in the fighting or not…. So, if we know we are being attacked, it seems only wise to keep up our guard, be ready, press the attack and make our efforts count. Let’s come out swinging! It is time for a preemptive attack! God promised that the gates of hell will not prevail against the church.

Our weapons are spiritual weapons, and they are powerful, but they must be deployed! Weapons left on the shelf aren’t doing any good. Let them fly!

Most of our spiritual weapons are released by the power of the words we speak. Words filled with faith – either positively or negatively. Let’s make our words count! If Mark 11:23-24 is true and we receive whatever we say, then we will want to make sure the words coming out of our mouth are what we want to come to pass!!! We can’t afford to have any thought in our head contrary to what God is thinking about us, and we can’t afford to let our heart speak anything contrary to the plan of God for our life. This is not about legalism, this is about the fight, about life and death. We know that the power of life and death is in the tongue.

I am asking you to aim your spiritual weapons carefully and fight for the things that matter in your life! Speak life over your circumstances and contend for the things that are important to you. God and all of heaven is listening to your words, waiting for your call, and waiting for the opportunity to intervene on your behalf.

You are more than a conqueror in Christ Jesus. You are an overcomer.

And I was praying for you today, because your victory matters!

Much Love,

Tim McKitrick

It's Time for Us to Get Together!

We are so excited about the incredible events that are coming up in the next few weeks, that we wanted to use this email to encourage you to take advantage of the opportunity to connect and fellowship with your WMF ministry family.

Please make every effort to attend one of the many state events scheduled over the next couple of months, and the Regional event in St Louis November 2-3, 2018. Dr. John Chasteen, author of
Coaching the Next Generation, will be our main speaker, with worship by Kingsley Walker, and we are expecting more powerful ministry and times of refreshing as the Holy Spirit leads. Click here for more event information.

You are very welcome to attend any state or regional event, even if you are not from that geographic region. We put on these events, so you will have multiple opportunities to fellowship with your WMF ministry family throughout your year, especially if you are not able to attend each of our yearly Convocations in Dallas, TX.

State Directors, please inform the WMF office of your state get togethers so we can make sure and get them on the calendar for you.

I hope to connect with you at one or more of these upcoming events.

Wishing you all God’s many blessings,


Dr. Tim McKitrick
