    6. A Sovereign God, Sinful People, and the Heart of 2 Kings (Part 2)

    6. A Sovereign God, Sinful People, and the Heart of 2 Kings (Part 2)

    Today is part two on this topic and we’re diving deeper into the story of Saul. We’re going to talk about how a heart changed by God will always lead to a transformed life. I hope you enjoy the show!
     
    Episode: 
     
    I’m going to start with a recap of Part 1, but I encourage you to listen to that one as it sets up this episode (1:18) I want to point out some things regarding Saul and Samuel (2:32) Let’s jump into 1 Samuel 10, starting in verse 16 (5:15) When we are praying for something, we need to be careful that it aligns with the heart of God and not our own agenda (9:20) God is a God of law and order and desires obedience from His people (12:50) What God does isn’t about us, it’s about who He is (17:09) Saul despaired because his troops were abandoning him as they cowered in fear (23:10) We will have to stand before God and give account for our own actions, which is why the heart check is so imperative (25:26) A changed heart leads to a transformed life (26:46) We have to remember that while we can only see the outward actions of people, God sees and determines the conditions of ones’ heart (34:01) I will continue on with David in Part 3, I want to give David due honor (35:51) Are you fit to fight or created to conquer? (36:56)

    5. A Sovereign God, Sinful People, and the Heart of 2 Kings

    5. A Sovereign God, Sinful People, and the Heart of 2 Kings

    Today we’re going to be in he books of Judges and 1 Samuel - looking at our total depravity as humans as a result of the fall and how God desires law and order to protect his people from harm. Trusting and relying on God is key to the Christian walk. A changed heart leads to a changed life! Let’s dive in.
     
    Episode: 
     
    We’re starting a journey that will span two episodes. We are kicking off a new year with a fresh start (0:57) The book of Judges is centered around three ideas (2:10) I want to unpack the concept of total depravity (7:33) We went to see the new Croods movie and the Lord spoke to me during it (11:10) If we choose to participate in the acts of this world, there are ramifications (14:34) A changed heart will lead to a transformed life (18:23) We have drifted from pursuing God and become a church that does good things in the name of God (23:50) There was a cry of repentance with the Israelites, but something inwardly had not changed. Their plea was for a king. (24:25) Saul ultimately squandered the gifts God had given to him and the idea was that the king would seek the Lord for the people (32:55) In the next episode we’ll get more into Saul’s character and the story of David. But in the meantime I hope you spend some time reflecting on what a changed heart really looks like. Our lives should resemble that of Christ (33:26)

    4. A Call to Hope, Not Cope

    4. A Call to Hope, Not Cope

    Today I will expound on the symbolism of my prophetic dream from episode one. We’ll talk about how we as Saints must clothe ourselves for battle, stand in the battle and not fear the battle going on around us. In order to be effective for the Kingdom, we must be a Church that hopes and not a culture that copes. I hope you enjoy today’s episode!
     
    Interview:
    I felt the nudge to expound on the prophetic dream I shared in episode one (1:03) We have become a culture that copes and not a church that hopes (5:29) I believe God is telling us we must repent (6:59) I want to start with the symbolism that happened in my dream (8:55) Let’s break down what each of the pieces of armor represent for believers (9:58) We are playing on the enemy’s playground and there is a war happening (18:01) I believe God is inviting us in to come back to Him (19:59) We are living in such exciting and yet, for many, frightening times (23:03) Victory is done! However, we are still at war in this world (27:22) God is inviting us to exit this year so differently than how we entered it (30:11)

    1. Calm in the Chaos

    1. Calm in the Chaos

    What do the storm that is 2020, a 20-year-old prophetic dream and a Biblical storm all have in common? Join me today as we talk about how God often addresses the storm within us before he addresses the storm around us. 
     
    Episode Notes:
    We’re all contending with the “storm of 2020” (0:45) God has given me the opportunity to speak about what He showed me in a prophetic dream 20 years ago (2:20) Matthew 8:23 - a verse about a storm (5:28) We can’t stay in the boat with the storm raging all around us and live in fear (9:11) God brings order out of confusion and calm out of the storm (11:15) What I believe God was showing me in my dream (13:09) I can’t think of a more relevant quote to close with than this A.W. Tozer quote (14:48)
