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.
We often want the promises of God to come instantly without any obstacles; we wish we could see the fulfillment without the struggle. But people of faith know that is not how it works. God gives us promises because He knows we need them to endure; He gives us a vision of the future because we can’t see it yet and need the hope to keep going.
In this message, you will be encouraged to rise up and move into your promised land. For our church’s vision, that means rising up together. Joshua wasn’t called to take the promised land by himself; he was simply the leader who empowered and coordinated a the people of God for a move of God. The same is true of our church and our mission to reach our region: it will take every person doing their part.

You won’t be able to fulfill your calling in the flesh, in your own limited ability. God’s promised blessings and your calling can only be realized through the favor and power of God, as God says, “Not by might, nor by power, but by My Spirit”–Zechariah 4:6.
We often face obstacles, problems, questions, insufficiencies and we don’t know what to do. The heart of God is calling out, “I want to help you. I have the answer to that problem. Ask Me and I will show you what to do.” God promises: “Call to Me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know”–Jeremiah 33:3.
In this message, we unpack the importance of walking in the Spirit and the consequences of not. As we observe the life of Joshua, we will see he is a great example of this. I think you will be both encouraged and challenged. Enjoy!
What holds you back from entering into your promises, realizing your potential, fulfilling your calling? I have found it is most often fear–paralyzing fear. Fear is often why we hide, why we compromise, why we settle, why we run, why we give up.
So how do you overcome fear? In this message we find out how to break the power of fear in our lives so that we can enter into God’s promised land for our lives. 2018 can be your best year, but you will have to make some changes and align with God.
Here is a sneak peak: when fear speaks to you, you will need to speak to it. That’s right! Fear has a voice. It is time for you to find yours. Get ready to learn how to use the sword of the Spirit.
In this series, God is preparing us to enter into our promised land this year. God is using the words He spoke to Joshua to encourage us to rise up and take hold of our territory from God. But, there is something that stops most from entering in: fear. It is the one thing that can keep us paralyzed.
Between you and your promised land is always a Jericho.
So what will you do? Will you stay and hide in the wilderness or will you rise up and enter into your promised land? In this message, God will break the fear that has been holding you back from your destiny.
There are times to receive a promise; there are times to wait on a promise; and there are times to rise up and enter into a promise. God wants 2018 to be a time of entering in. It is time to take hold of your territory, to enter into your promised land.
In this series, we hear God’s word to Joshua to receive both promises and principles for us. God’s word will prepare you to possess your land. If you are going to enter into your promised land you will first need to enter into God’s word, because His word contains the instructions, truths, wisdom, grace, strength, confidence you need.
Let this message encourage you to seek the Lord this year, entering into His word so you can enter into your promised land.
This Christmas, Jesus wants to give you a present: the gift of His presence. Jesus is a giver! And on His birthday, He wants to refresh you, fill you, heal you, restore you. In this first message in our series, “Christmas Presence”, we will receive the gift of Hope in Christ.
This hope is not an idea, a wish, or a maybe, but a sure, steadfast confidence that will strengthen you and reinvigorate your motivation and energy. Human optimism will fail, fleshly strength will run out, this world will disappoint, but you can have hope because of His promise. Listen and receive the gift of hope.
