SORT BY Relevancy
in Self Help
Today's show is called "More than Enough." In the show I attempt to paint a picture that you have more capacity and opportunity than you can imagine. It's from a sermon I shared by the same title. Some of what you will hear includes:
I think, sometimes, people believe God runs empty! God wants us to take ownership of the power that we have in God!
“There was a man who was cleaning up his desk one Friday afternoon when he noticed an envelope that had been opened. Someone must have placed it there while he was on the phone. He opened it and read it, and to his shock and dismay it was a notice of being terminated, being laid-off from his job. His entire department was being eliminated along with his position. After all the years he had given to his corporation, he found himself filled with resentment and the sense of being victimized. The man sat slumped in his chair in utter despair.
He began to think of all the terrible things that were going to happen to him. His entire lifestyle would have to be altered. He thought, "I'll have to sell my house; I'm too old to get another job; I'm useless; I'm all washed up."
At that moment, the man noticed a spider on his desk, and without thinking he brushed it off. He was amazed though as he watched as the tiny creature automatically spin a strand to bear its weight and swing gracefully to the floor.....
DON'T MISS THE LAST FEW MINUTES OF THE SHOW. I SHARE A POWERFUL SCENE FROM THE MOVIE "FACING THE GIANTS" WHEN A YOUNG MAN IN CRAWLING ON A FOOTBALL FIELD WITH HIS COACH TELLING HIM NOT TO QUIT.
in The Bible
King David did not just "settle" for defeating the Jebusites, He advanced forward to "conqueror."
He named the fortress of Zion, for which his opponents said he was powerless to defeat, "The City of David (2Samuel 5:7)." In his earlier days as a shepherd boy and while God was training him for his called kingly position, we see pictures where his foot is placed on the neck of the giant, Goliath. This foothold is understood to mean, not just conquest, but "more than a conqueror" or, "down for the count" as a referee might judge today. When Jesus rose from the dead in bodily form, He did not just conquer death, He was "more than a conqueror." The apostle Paul said: "We are more than conquerors in Christ Jesus (Rom. 8:37)."
The show today will look at the different pieces of spiritual armor and what purpose they serve. We will also look at the Sword of The Spirit which is The Word of God and how to use this equipping correctly. The show today will address "strongholds" and what these are to us today.

"FOR NOTHING IS HIDDEN THAT SHALL NOT BECOME EVIDENT, NOR ANYTHING SECRET THAT SHALL NOT BE KNOWN AND COME TO LIGHT." LUKE 8:17
RELIGION IS DIVISION = THERE IS NO RELIGION HIGHER THAN THE TRUTH
Why is there so much disagreement, confusion, and division in religion? Even "Christian" denominations often disagree and contradict one another. Does Jesus approve of such division, or does He want religious unity? Does division occur because the Bible contradicts itself or cannot be understood? Is it caused by ignorance, lack of Bible study, human religious authority, and man-made creeds? What does God's word say?

Nadine Hays Pisani, a native of Elizabeth, New Jersey, who attended Rutgers University, resides in Costa Rica with her husband and dog, Clementine. Nadine is the author of the best-selling series, Happier than a Billionaire.
She shares her weekly adventures on her blog: www.happierthanabillionaire.com where she writes, “All I can tell you is that I was one of those individuals who was burnt out from the rat race. Maybe that was my addiction as well. It’s easy to become a workaholic. It can sneak up on you disguised as the American Dream. The interesting thing about my journey is that I still have a strong work ethic, however it has taken on a more creative form. What I have discovered is that when I do creative things, work no longer feels like work: I finally feel like I have a life that fits.”
When not writing, you can find her at the beach, on the back of a scooter, or frantically tossing scorpions out of her bed. Join her on her blog as she navigates living as an expat in the sometimes confusing, always beautiful, country of Costa Rica.

This Week's Lesson: "Obedience Is Better Than Sacrifice" - (1 Samuel 15:22).
Any relationship requires and understanding of terms. A healthy relationship will recognize the obligations and expectations of both friends. A marriage is similar. However, our relationship with God is unique. We follow Him on His terms. We have nothing to offer other than ourselves. When we make this offering, we recognize that He has expectations of us. His commands must be obeyed as we submit to His governance of our lives. We live out our lives lives according to His plans, not our own.
In this week;s lesson, we will see that King Saul failed to recall the importance of obedience, and suffered as a results. We are wise to learn from his sad example, remembering that obedience brings peace, fulfillment, and blessing.

John 15:13 says, Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one's life for one's friends. And isnt that the same love we find most difficult to understand? How can God love me so much even when I was found deep in my own sin, going my own way yet so desperately needing a savior. And the truth is we needed to be saved from ourselves. Christ gave up His life, took up his cross and our sins were nailed with Him, forever wiped away because He first loved us. We cannot fully comprehend the depth, width and height of Gods love no matter how hard we try. And for those of you who feel you dont deserve His love, truth is you don't. God just ask of you to except his invitation to turn from your sin and doing it your way, and give your life fully to Christ and watch Him work. This is the kind of love the world needs to hear, that God loves them so much that he doesnt want to see you in chains, bound up and tied up in your sin, because now there is hope, joy , peace and freedom being offered to all who seek. For theres no greater love than Jesus Christ.....now thats something to celebrate!
Proverbs 18:24 talks about the one who would have friends having to be one who would show himself or herself friendly. But it goes on to say that there is a friend that sticks closer than a brother. Many are seeking that type of close relationship in all of the wrong places while the Lord is accessible to us and is waiting to be that kind of friend to us- One who knows all about us and yet accepts us, One who will bear us up in the hard and lean times. He's that kind of Friend and more.
