Getting Strong From The Inside Out
We’ve been talking about this next season being one where the body of Christ is a place of refreshing to the world. It’s not possible for us to do that if we are feeling horrible and depleted. The solution - we need to learning how to strengthen ourselves in the Lord, from the inside out, so that what flows out of us is life-giving. Debbie speaks of the shift that is needed - getting our soul adequately discipled, and getting our spirit to lead. Deb will be running a “Strengthen Yourself In The Lord Bootcamp” in the coming weeks. Have a listen and get in touch with us if you want to join in.
Your Rising - Part 2
Tim follows up from last week, digging into Isaiah 60 as a key strategic prophetic word for this season. God is releasing fragments of revelation around our identity and our assignment to enable and empower our rising. He’s breathing in fresh passion, awakening our first love - getting us into a place of deep refreshment - so that we are positioned and ready to rise into the fullness of the glory of God in and through us.
Your Rising - Part 1
Isaiah 60 tells us that when the earth is covered with darkness and deep darkness is over the people, that’s the time when God’s glory comes and causes His people to rise. The key here is it’s YOUR RISING - not God’s, but YOURS. Tim unpacks this “reset” season, bringing a prophetic perspective and promise so that we are perfectly positioned to do our part in seeing the world covered with His glory.
You Can Have What You Say
In another epic tag-team, Debbie & Megan explore the power of the confession of our mouth. What we say has power and authority. What we say is fruit of what is happening in our heart, so rather than put tape over our mouth so we don’t “say the wrong thing” we need to let the Spirit touch and heal our heart so that our confession is naturally in agreement with His voice. When our confession is in alignment with heaven, we produce heaven’s atmosphere around us.
Deb Ferris & Megan Edward powerfully tag-team to bring this word about humility - going low. Humility is often misunderstood as being a door mat, or being in poverty. In fact, humility is a Kingdom secret weapon that the enemy has no answer for.
Managing Your State - Anchoring In The Scriptures
When chaos and craziness abound, our biggest unfair advantage is that we have the voice of God. One of the biggest disciplines/skills we need is the ability to quiet our soul to the point where we can hear the voice of God above all the other voices that are shouting at us right now. There’s lots of ways God speaks. In this message Tim focusses on hearing the voice of God through scripture, and the power of scripture to anchor us so we can thrive in any circumstance.
