Light In The Cave

One of the most undesirable aspects of the Christian life is facing the reality that God's intentional kindness towards His children sometimes manifests itself through His disciplining of us. Yes, God is not unilaterally committed to our continual comfort and personal pleasure. To the degree that He intends to grow us and use us, He must break us. Frequently, the Father takes us through seasons wherein we are stretched, tested and proven. In these seasons, life can feel somewhat like a dark cave to us. For David, this season involved a literal cave that became his temporary home for longer than he would have liked. In the midst of losing all of the comforts in his life, God took David through a prolonged season of decrease wherein he was being trained to look to God alone for comfort, hope and security. It was during his cave-season that David received the bright light of learning to trust deeply in the faithfulness of God when the rest of his life seemed to oppose him.

Light In The Cave

What It Looks Like To Press In

The closer we get to the end of the age, the more we should expect to hear Heaven-sent messages which spotlight the great need for Christians to persevere in the faith. God the Spirit will be leading messengers to call the Church to press in closer to the King as the culture moves farther away from Him at a rapidly increasing rate. The writer of Hebrews sent a message to people in the first century who were being tempted to turn back from their current levels of belief in Jesus as Messiah. Some of these people were truly born again. Some of these people believed with their minds but had never fully surrendered to Him in their hearts. The writer recognized that the external pressures from the culture and the internal uncertainties in their individual hearts posed a real threat to their souls. Today's Christian must recognize that a verifying mark of authentic faith is that we will endure unto the end with a committed faith in Jesus. God's grace makes that endurance our reality, but i...

What It Looks Like To Press In

Nothing Left To Lean On

To truly embrace and experience all of what God has created you for, one element is essential: the recognition that God is now and forever will be everything to us. All our lesser loyalties and potential things upon which we might trust must either be renounced by us or removed from us so that we recognize that our lives are completely dependent upon God alone. While God commands us to love and appreciate all that He places in our lives, He forbids that we ever give our full trust to these things. David would be a great source of glory for God, but he would first need to learn what it meant to stand utterly alone, with nothing to lean on but God Himself. There was a season wherein everything else was removed from David, leaving him with absolutely nothing left to lean on.

Nothing Left To Lean On

Insecurity's Thumbprint

If you live long enough and keep your eyes open, you will be able to discern repeated patterns within the Kingdom of God. One of these cycles of how God works is seen in His exalting one person while simultaneously reducing another person. None of us is a permanent fixture in our generation. The young get old, the old die and, while that is happening, newborns are entering the cycle to ensure that there is always someone whom God may use for His glory. In this passage, we have this cycle undeniably placed before us as God’s hand remains upon David for blessing, while that same helping hand is removed from King Saul. What does it look like to be promoted in the Kingdom by God? Are you positioned for this type of touch from God upon your own life? This part of David’s story also serves as an opportunity for us to see if there is any danger of us living in the prison of our own insecurities when God promotes others around us. Envy and jealousy are open doors to the demonic realm, and...

No More Hand-Me-Down Armor

There are unforeseen moments in life that will define our entire storyline. Many times, we did not see them coming when we awoke on the day that they occurred. God’s providence sets up encounters, events and opportunities that will mark us forever. How we respond to those moments is crucial. Most of the time, how we respond is determined by everything we have believed, envisioned, and committed ourselves to prior to that moment arriving. David was about to face the giant in the valley. If he was going to emerge victorious, there were several obstacles he would need to overcome. David needed to be covered in the armor of God, trusting that the Lord was going to bring him a humanly impossible breakthrough. A different type of armor was offered to him. If David trusted in human resources for the victory, his moment could implode. If he would wear the armor that God provided, the giant would fall. This message walks us through a familiar story from an uncommon point of view. The armor ...

No More Hand-Me-Down Armor

Why We Want The Word

Smith Wigglesworth prophesied in 1947 that the greatest revival would occur in the midst of that generation who intentionally married the Spirit of God and the Word of God in both identity, theology and ministry. We are living in the midst of such a generation of Christians and churches. Those who have historically cherished the written word of God, the Bible, are being awakened to the need and offer of the power of the Holy Spirit that has always been available but was historically ignored by them. Denominations who once shunned the supernatural work of God the Spirit are now being gloriously entrusted with His presence and power. For those Christians and denominations who have historically been given to the signs, wonders and gifts of the Holy Spirit, there must be an accompanying return to the prioritizing of the written Word. Man does not live by signs and wonders alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God. This message takes a penetrating look at what God’s writ...

Why We Want The Word

The God Of Your Battles

The life of a believer is described in countless ways throughout the bible. One of the metaphors that is repeatedly used all throughout Scripture is the picture of life being a battle. Yes, all believers are living out their days on a battlefield. While there are innumerable forces that actively oppose us, God has declared us to be victorious overcomers in the midst of it all. King David’s life is, perhaps, one of the clearest examples of how we must prepare for war, look to God for wisdom and strength, fight bravely as we rely upon Him, and endure all hostility and opposition until victory is secured. David was a perpetual warrior. We are also to consider ourselves to be the same. In this message, we hear the words of David as He reveals so much of what he was taught by God throughout the years of endless battles with military foes, individuals who wrongly resisted him and even painful opposition from those whom he loved. In the end, David learned something that we also must learn...

The God Of Your Battles

When Clarity Comes

Jesus was never fooled by the crowds. One day they loved Him, the next day they cried out for His death. Instead of living for the welcome of the masses, Jesus lived every hour of His life seeking to do the things which brought pleasure to the Father. So clear was Jesus about the Father’s assignment for His life that He never once stepped off that pathway. Along the way there were powerful healings, miracles, resurrections, conversions and teachings. The people loved it when Jesus moved in the power of the Father! Yet, Jesus knew that people are fickle, and He was never drawn away after their halfhearted devotion. He often spoke aloud of the wonder of knowing just who would follow Him all the way to the cross. In this message, Jesus leaves us with one of the key principles for living a life that counts for eternity. When the Christian recognizes this principle is his or hers to live out, then spiritual fog evaporates and powerful clarity comes to us. Apart from our receiving this p...

Marked For Eternity

All good parents want to see their children grow, succeed and prosper. The best parents are intentional about ensuring that their children have the opportunity to go farther than they themselves could have ever gone. What is true in natural parenthood is also true with spiritual mothers and fathers: we want the best for our sons & daughters in the faith. When God allows us the joy and privilege of pouring into those coming behind us, we want to be proactive in our investments in their own walks with Christ. Paul’s prayer in Colossians 1:9-14 reveals what he prioritized as a spiritual father in the lives of those coming behind him. He wants these Jesus-followers to be marked forever by the King. From Paul’s prayers over them, we find ourselves stirred in spiritual hunger for these marks to be bolder upon our own lives and appearing on the lives of those in whom we have the opportunity to invest. What does a life marked for eternity look like? Are our own lives displaying these mark...

Marked For Eternity

Recognizing Winds Of Change

Never forget that God has a plan. We also need to remember that He is constantly working to bring that plan to fulfillment. God was done with Saul as the King of Israel, and He had already chosen Saul's replacement. David was presently anointed and awaiting his future elevation to the throne of Israel. Before that occurred, there was a process that God had initiated that must first be completed. David's slaying of Goliath was a huge piece of that process. What does it look like when the winds of God's providence begin to blow? When it is time for things to move within God's wise plans, His people need to exercise sharp discernment to recognize what He is accomplishing. In a very discouraging situation, God would providentially move to bring about one of the most glorious events in the young life of the boy who would become a king. David would be slaying a giant. Looking back now, we can clearly recognize the winds of change which were being unleashed in Israel by God.
