As we continue in our series out of Genesis, the book of beginnings, we journey with Abraham to see see how God transformed him and how God can restart our faith and transform us too.
I love how real and how raw Abraham was. I love how God worked through his imperfections. And despite Abraham’s flaws, there was something that set him apart; something that moved the heart of God, attracted favor, and released the miraculous.
What was it!? What is the key to Abraham’s life? As you listen to this message may you see how you can imitate Abraham and position yourself for deeper friendship with God and supernatural intervention from Him in your life.
What do you do when your phone starts glitching or your computer freezes? RESTART!
Sometimes our device get overloaded or the power runs down or a code messes a program up and it just needs a reboot. Sometimes we glitch and need a reboot too–we get weary, loose our way, start believing lies.
Genesis, the book of beginnings, is not only about creation; it is about God’s original intent, about real people learning to walk with the real God in genuine faith. The Lord has been teaching me about faith and walking with Him through this raw book of beginnings. I have been inspired by the messiness of Genesis and the beauty of God’s intervention. Through this book, God is calling us back to the beginning; He is restarting our faith and walk with Him.
This audio message is about the transformation of Abraham. I had never seen this before: how God took Abraham from being a person of compromise to a person of complete surrender, from hesitant fear to unwavering faith.
I hope the journey of Abraham and the journey I have been on will bless you as you listen to these messages about God’s transformation in the lives of people like Abraham, Sarah, Judah, and Joseph. I hope you will see how God can RESTART your faith and draw you deeper into walking with Him in intimate friendship that radically transforms your life and those around you.
When you don’t know who you are, the enemy can lie to you. When you don’t know what you have, the enemy can steal from you. In this series of messages, God has been speaking to us about our inheritance-what we have in Christ as His blood bought children. We need to know who we are and what we have in Christ so we can walk in confidence into all God has for us.
In this message, we explore our inheritance of financial dignity. Though this truth entails more than finances, there is a dignity we have as children of God who have promises from God. That dignity can free us from the easy traps of envy and fear and empower us to be extravagant givers, wise investors, and content enjoyers of life.
When you see your eternal inheritance in Christ, even beyond the blessings of this life, it puts suffering and success in the right light. All of the pain and heartache of this present life cannot compare to the weight of glory we will experience in heaven. Even all of God’s blessings now, and our calling now, cannot compare to the weight of glory we will receive. When we know our eternal inheritance, we can access that inheritance by faith through the power of the Holy Spirit for our life now.
In this message, be refreshed by a glimpse at your eternal inheritance and be reminded that the Holy Spirit is the down payment of that inheritance. Eternal life doesn’t start when you die; it starts now. I pray you would be filled with hope as you listen to God’s word.
“Bless the Lord, O my soul, And forget not all His benefits.”
King David shows us that there are benefits to being in covenant with God. Too often we are unaware or forgetful about these benefits. We need to know we are as children of God and what we have in Him so that we can appropriate those promised blessings into our lives and so that we will turn our hearts toward God in worship rather than turn away in offense, fear, or shame.
In this message, I pray God opens your eyes to see just how awesome your inheritance is in Christ. I am confident that when you see, fear and anxiety will fall away and confidence and creativity will explode in your life. You are not alone; you have a God! He is with you and has made promises to you. I pray you receive all He has for you.
You gotta know who you are! You gotta know what God has given you in Christ! God says, “My people perish for lack of knowledge”. I have found that when we don’t know, we are vulnerable to insecurities, fears, and even sin. But when we know, the truth frees us, fills us with confidence, brings rest, and motivates and empowers us to live a life that pleases God.
Do you know who you are? Do you know you have an inheritance in Christ? In this message, you will see that you have an undiluted inheritance in Christ. The same power, authority, blessings, and promises we read in the bible are your inheritance. But if you don’t know, you won’t appropriate them to your life. I pray you will blessed by this message as you see what is yours. And I pray you would become solid in Christ as you come to Him with faith.
Through James 5:16-17, the Lord teaches us how to pray prayers that get results. Many people think prayer is a like a coin toss or a roll of the dice. “You never know what God will do”, I hear many people say. But that is not what Jesus taught or modeled. Its time we learn to pray Kingdom prayers and see Kingdom results.
If you don’t know what is yours in Christ, you won’t approach God with confidence and perseverance. You can only appropriate what you recognize. Discover who you are in Christ and what is available to you through Him; ditch wimpy prayers and pick up your weapons.
You can only appropriate what you recognize. If we don’t know something is ours we cannot utilize it. Too often we let fear and discouragement, shame and insecurity push us around, because we do not know who we are.
We need to know who we are in Christ and what has been given to us. That is what Paul prays for in Ephesians chapter one and that is what the Holy Spirit is showing us in this message.
Beloved, don’t let the devil bully you any longer! Rise up and fight. Find out how in this message.
I was impacted by something so simple while reading the Gospels recently. When people encountered Jesus, they were changed forever. And what was their response? Worship. So often we see people falling down and worshipping Jesus out of an overwhelming sense of gratitude. He made such an impact!
The risen Lord is still in the life-changing business. I may not be a leper, but I need healing; I may not be a tax collector, but I need forgiveness. He is alive: still the healer, redeemer, savior, deliverer.
Everyone who encountered Jesus, was changed forever. As you come to Jesus, He will change you.
Often just when we start making some progress, resistance comes. Often after revival, comes backlash. We can be tempted to be discouraged, but the Lord is reminding us that our victory is on our lips, that praise is the way to breakthrough. So don’t worry; worship. Don’t back down; Bless the Lord. Don’t give up; give Him glory!
Be reminded through some powerful testimonies that as you worship, God is moving. He is going before you, fighting for you, giving you victory. Praise Him!
