Kindle the Flame 2018
At Lynette Hagin’s 2018 Kindle the Flame Women’s Conference nearly 1,500 women from around the world gathered in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma, for three days to reflect, renew, and rekindle.
Sporting dazzling gold KTF bags, the ladies enjoyed plenty of girl time and heard from God. Each session pulsated with excitement, energy, and expectancy as the speakers shared powerful messages of truth laced with transparency. Those at the conference learned how to be a true reflection of who God says they are. They left refreshed, encouraged, and healed.
Kindle the Flame 2019 is scheduled for September 26–28 on the Rhema USA campus.
Who We Really Are
What image do you see when you look in a mirror? I’m not referring to your natural features, but who you are on the inside. If we’re going to be all that God has called us to be, we have to look into the mirror of our life. We must take our masks off and see ourselves for who we really are. Mirrors don’t hide anything; they show everything. The mirror of our life reveals our thoughts, actions, intents, and agendas. It’s important that we can see what needs to be changed in our hearts.
In First Samuel chapter 16, God told Samuel to go to Jesse’s house and anoint one of his sons to be king. Jesse bought his oldest son who was tall, handsome, and fit. Samuel thought, “Surely, this is the one!” “But the Lord said to Samuel, ‘Don’t judge by his appearance or height, for I have rejected him. The Lord doesn’t see things the way you see them. People judge by outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart’ ” (1 Sam. 16:7 NLT). Seven of Jesse’s sons passed before Samuel. Each time, God said no.
Jesse sent for his youngest son. When David arrived, the Lord said, “This is the one; anoint him” (1 Sam. 16:12 NLT). David was a man after God’s heart (Acts 13:22). He was quick to do everything God asked. Can we say we are women after God’s heart?
The Unedited You
Denise Hagin Burns
We edit ourselves constantly. It’s in our culture to put the best out there. While everyone on social media is #livingmybestlife, we compare our real life with their “best life.” Then we feel bad about our lives and feel the pressure to edit.
When we edit ourselves, we’re no longer who we really are. We hide our feelings and thoughts. We put on the smile. Here’s the tension: the more we edit, the more isolated and lonely we become. No one knows who we really are.
Here’s my challenge: #1) Walk back into your world and be unedited. Be the real you. #2) Bear each other’s burdens (Gal. 6:2). Find out somebody else’s story. Why? So we can fulfill the law of Christ—loving others as God loves us. That’s what we’re here to do.
“Heaven is on a tour of accelerated restoration. God wants to heal you from your past to bring you into the fullness of who He called you to be. Pay attention to what God reveals to you because that is what He wants to bring into fullness in your life. Understanding the season you are in helps you to apprehend what God has for you in that season.” // Jen Tringale
“Sometimes when God shuts a door in our lives, we remember the beautiful song that played when the door was open. So we try to push it back open. But we must remember that God’s plans are bigger than our own. Wait for His plan to happen, and it will. If we don’t force it, it will be the authentic hand of God that opens the door.” // Jill Donovan
“The price to save families wasn’t casual. Redemption— Jesus’ blood—targets your ‘family photo’ and the cracks in it—the things that don’t remind anybody of God. His blood paid for families to be restored, but it must be applied to have its effect. He needs you to go in your prayer closet, close the door, and apply the blood like a holy antibiotic to the dysfunctional disease in your family.” // Patsy Cameneti
“To be the woman of God you are supposed to be and not an emotional mess, you must look into the mirror of the Word every day. You have to get control of your soul so nothing else controls you. The issues that flow out of you directly result from what you are feeding on. That’s why it’s vitally important to renew your mind constantly.” // Marci Glisson
“I love Kindle the Flame! This time is God’s time! He’s calling us to come because He has a job for us to do. It’s harvest time.” —Minnie
“Last night, the mirror of reflecting God’s love to other people became real to me. It ignited my faith. Hearing about taking off “the mask” excited me. The praise and worship was good. It was so good to hear the speakers. I love Kindle the Flame; it reignites in me a love of Jesus.” —Marcia
