Our first podcast

I convinced several pastors to join me in a podcast. One of them started with me.

We don’t have a name or a theme song. All we had was a Zoom account. So, we got started!

God’s will God’s way

Where there’s Gods’ will, there’s God’s way!

Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the Lord’s will is.

-Ephesians 5:17

Stubborness can be an asset or a road block.

If you know you’re following God’s will, keep at it. You will have all you need to do what God has put in your heart.

But don’t let stubbornness cloud your vision of God’s will. Sometimes it’s frustrating because it’s time to stop.

The fun part is deciding the difference.

God hears

There is nowhere you can go where God will not hear your cry for help.

From the ends of the earth I call to you,

    I call as my heart grows faint;

    lead me to the rock that is higher than I.

Psalm 61:2

I know you face hardships.

And I know it feels like you’ve fallen beyond God’s care. Don’t believe that lie.

Let’s assume you’ve found yourself far from God’s way. You probably think you’re the worse person alive. Who could ever have strayed like you?

Child of God, the Lord has not lost sight on you. Cry out to God and he will hear you.

Be surprised!

You’d be surprised what you can do when you decide you can do it.

Then Saul said to David, “Blessed be you, my son David! You will do many things and will succeed in them.” So David went his way, and Saul returned to his place.

-1 Samuel 26:25

Saul told David he would do many things and would succeed in them. That’ great encouragement. Did David need it? Maybe he did. Maybe he didn’t.

It helps to have supportive people around you, egging you on to do great things.

When you don’t, just know you have the creativity, wisdom and blessing of Gods’ peace. You can do great things.

David went on his way. He became Israel’s greatest king.

Now, get on your way.

Use it!

Why would God give you boldness if he didn’t expect you to use it?

He proclaimed the kingdom of God and taught about the Lord Jesus Christ—with all boldness and without hindrance!

Acts 28:31

Paul preached the gospel with boldness. He need to be bold. It’s not that people would’ve have listened to him if he wasn’t. They would have.

But maybe not a second or fifth time.

Be honest. Most of us would barely welcome one imprisonment because of sharing the good news. Seems like Paul was always in prison.

But he shared the message of Jesus in spite of his circumstances. That takes boldness. That’s why God gave it to him.

That’s why God gave it to us, too.
