This podcast is all about providing you with encouragement from the Word of God, meant to inspire, motivate, and challenge your daily walk with the Lord!

    Freely Receive, Freely Give!

    Freely Receive, Freely Give!

    Freely Give, Freely Receive!

    God is a multiplier! The devil is a divider!

    But don’t get it twisted, they are not on level ground.

    God reigns Supreme as Master Creator and the devil is known as the father of lies, he is a perverter and twister of things already made!

    God has always been! the devil is a created being.

    Without God, the devil would have never existed, and without the devil, God has always been!

    God is the great I AM and the devil is the saddest has been.

    You see the devil was created perfect, given free will, and put on assignment until iniquity was found in him. After that Jesus said he saw satan cast as lightning from Heaven!

    God has always been, without beginning or end - He is alpha and omega, first and last! 

    He sees the end from the beginning!

    He supersedes time & space!

    He created the moon, the stars, and the sun!

    He formed man from the dust of the ground and breathed into him, the breath of life!

    This notion of good vs. evil, of light vs. dark, is simply not true!

    Evil & darkness exist in the absence of good & light, not the other way around!

    In other words, the devil is a defeated foe already!

    Jesus has conquered death, hell, & the grave! and in Him alone, is eternal life!

    Why is it so important for us to know these truths? 

    Because when we get a revelation of just good God is, how powerful God is, and how great our God is, we can know for certain that no test, trial, or temptation has the ability to thwart the plan of God in our lives!

    The Bible says, what can separate us from the love of God?! 

    I want to answer that for you today with a resounding encouragement, NOTHING!

    When you get that once and for all, down in your heart, it will empower you to want to draw closer to God, to want to be like Him!

    Listen, the enemy to try and derail the plans of God, but he knows he can’t. 

    So what’s the next best thing? To try and derail God’s children. If you are a born-again Christian, that is you!

    But I have more great news for you today! As long as we stay connected to Jesus, in steady fellowship with Him, the devil can’t touch us! Evil cannot overtake us! 

    I want to share with you today one practical way to remain in constant fellowship with Jesus, 

    freely receive and freely give!

    The Bible puts it like this: He is the vine, and we are the branches.

    When we stay connected to Him through daily Bible time, daily seeking Him, we position ourselves to daily receive from Him, and then when we go the next step and daily give away what He has freely given us, it opens our hearts, it broadens our tents to receive more from Him!

    This is how the kingdom of God works! He is a multiplier!

    As long as we try and keep to ourselves the things He is pouring into us through His word, we will have an invisible barrier over our lives. We will only be able to go so far.

    Why is that? 

    Because God is a giver, and He wants us to be like Him, to be givers as well!

    This is the way He set it up!

    He did not create us in His image and likeness to be hoarders, to be spiritually fat.

    He created us to be givers, to be spiritually fit!

    This starts by first staying connected to Him, the Vine, and then continue giving away what He continually gives!

    The devil wants to convince you that this is counter-intuitive, but remember he wants nothing more than to steal, kill, and destroy!

    Jesus on the other hand wants to bring you life and it more abundantly!

    Be encouraged today! 

    What you make happen for others, God will make happen for you! 

    Freely you have received, therefore freely give!

    In Christ.

    Hope Beyond the Scope!

    Hope Beyond the Scope!

    It is inevitable, that whenever I talk about the goodness of the Lord or His love, someone always messages me and asks, “What about the wrath of God?!”

    Listen, I get it!

    We look out into the world, we turn on the news, we go to work even and it is clear that people need Jesus!

    And many of us would want nothing more than to have God step in and take care of the mess that we see all around us!

    But today I want to give you some encouragement!

    I want to provide you with hope beyond the scope!

    Have you ever heard the expression, “Failing to see the woods for the trees?”

    Simply put, this means that oftentimes it can be difficult to see the bigger picture - in this scenario, the woods, because we get so hung up on the things around us, right in front of us, the trees if you will!

    There is no doubt, that this world has gone crazy. 

    But, this world has been crazy for a long time. And Jesus who is the same yesterday, today, and forever has been here all the while providing peace, power, grace, and hope to whosoever will receive it!

    We don’t have to allow the world and its troubles bog us down!

    We don’t have to be swayed by this or that virus that arises!

    We don’t have to be shaken by this or that bad need report!

    Do we hide in the sand? No.

    Do we hide in our churches? No.

    Then what’s the answer?!

    We seek Jesus daily, allowing Him to be our source.

    If all we do is focus on the wrath of God, the judgment of God on those around us, we will miss the many opportunities to be like God to those around us!

    There is coming a time when all things will be made right when all things will be made even and just…

    But until that day comes, I want to encourage you to work out your own salvation with fear and trembling!

    Going before the Lord every day, seeking Him with your whole heart, and asking Him to create in you a clean heart, to be a vessel He can use to reach the world around you!

    When we do that, He will bring us up where He is, giving us proper perspective, an eternal mindset, and we won’t be consumed with the cares of this life but rather, we will have hope beyond the scope - a hope we can freely share with others!

    Until next time, remember what you make happen for others, God will make happen for you!

    In Christ,

    Joshua Scott Zeitz

    More Than You Know! pt. 2

    More Than You Know! pt. 2

    More Than You Know!
    Do you want to make an impact for Jesus?
    What is your story? Where has the Lord brought you from? What has He done in your life? What kinds of thinking patterns did you have before the Lord and now after? What has life been like since deciding to follow Jesus? 
    These are just a few of the questions to ask ourselves when faced with the looming question, “What do I have to offer?!”
    I have great news for you today! 
    More than you know!
    If there is one thing I know for sure about the Lord - He still saves, heals, and delivers to the uttermost!
    He is not in the business of entering our lives tossing a lifeline to us and then disappearing.
    He is in it for the long haul!
    That is amazing news!
    He said He would never leave us, nor forsake us!
    The Bible says that He becomes the Bishop of our souls, the Author and Finisher of our faith!
    So what does this equate to in relation to what we have to offer others? 
    Short answer: EVERYTHING!
    When we walk with the Lord, He does a complete overhaul of our lives from the inside out!
    Listen, you don’t have to have some crazy testimony…
    For example, you might not have been strung out on drugs, robbing banks, or stealing cars before Jesus found you. 
    You might not have lived some wretched life of sin for years, burnt all your relationship bridges, or gone through some super traumatic event that left a huge scar on your life, or maybe you did…
    Whatever the case may be, Jesus is still the same yesterday, today, and forever!
    If you know Him, If you have fully surrendered your life to Him, He has done a work in your life, and He is continuing to do so!
    He is light! 
    He is truth!
    He repels any darkness and dispels any lie!
    So I ask again, what has He done in your life? 
    These are the things you can share with others!
    Freely we have received, therefore freely we should give!
    No matter your financial status, your job, your living situation, your church home, your political affiliation, no matter the color of your skin, or your gender 
    Pick a thing!
    It doesn’t matter!
    You have more to offer than you know because you know the One who transcends all of those things!
    His name is Jesus and He wants to use you to impact the lives of those around you!
    What has he done in your life? What gifts and talents has He given you?
    Share those things with others!
    When you do, you will be amazed at how He will begin to multiply those things in your life! 
    Perhaps you have been feeling stuck? Like nothing, you do truly matters? 
    Perhaps you have been seeking purpose in your life? 
    The solution is simple: Start right where you are with what you already have!
    It's way more than you know!
    I want to encourage you today!
    Write down what the Lord has done in your life. Write down some of the things He has blessed you with…
    Then begin prayerfully seeking the Lord on how you can share those things with others!
    What we make happen for others, God will make happen for us!
    In Christ, 
    Joshua Scott Zeitz
