Victory In Jesus – Hart To Heart Ministries by Mike Echterling



by Mike Echterling
My wife, Denise and my daughter Michelle and I have traveled throughout North America preaching and singing in churches, seminars, and conferences. Often we are asked why we are not burnt out after years of ministering. The answer is obvious, if the lamp is full of oil it will never burn out!We stay in the Word of God and we stay in fellowship with the Spirit of the living God and our lamps stay full of the oil of the Holy Spirit. When there is plenty of oil the flame for God will always burn and there will never be any burn out!Things happen that would cause anyone to step out of the victory found in the Word of God. But just like Paul made a choice so do we.Romans 8: 37 “Who shall separate us “from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?”No one wants to face these things. Yet, Paul tells us, even while in the midst of these things, “I am more than conquerors through Him that loved us.” vs. 38 Paul goes on to say, “For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us “from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”Paul’s heart soared in victory while in the midst of the most horrendous circumstances. His heart, soul & mind were firmly fixed on God.2 Cor. 4:8″10 says, “We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed…”Paul then says, “For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory.”2 Cor. 4:17 Paul calls this a “light affliction which is but for a moment.” How?1 Cor. 4:18 continues, “While we look (not at the things which are seen, but at the “things which are not seen, for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.”Look to the Invisible One’s love for you! Our Invisible God created the visible world. He still intervenes in this created world for you. Look to Him & consider all, “light afflictions for a moment.”To read more about Mike and Denise Hartmann-Echterling or to watch videos of Denise ministering in song go to the Hart To Heart Ministries web site at:© Hart To Heart Ministries Permissions: You are permitted and encouraged to reproduce and distribute this material in any format provided that you do not alter the wording in any way and do not charge a fee beyond the cost of reproduction.
