Faith is a super high value with God. It's impossible to come to Him and please him without it. What is the source of faith? And how can we enhance the quality of our faith? Faith is a point of contact between heaven and earth ... our quality faith is a landing strip for the best things from Father God.
Will Jesus summon you to come out of your battered boat and walk on water with him? He just may if you show a faith initiative. What if you could express water-walking faith over difficulties and dilemmas? And what if you could even exploit opportunities and faith horizons with the audacious faith of Christ? In this episode we explore initiative, staying focused on Christ, getting a word from the Lord Over All, and more. (This may stretch your personal belief!)
It's simple. There’s a way things work. It’s always true in the natural. And in the supernatural too. As we diligently explore the Gospels in the New Testament with openness, we will realize there’s a way that things work when we want to experience something extraordinary. There is a simultaneous faith movement on our part with the corresponding activity of Jesus.
Trials are times of testing and pressure. Everyone experiences them. For the Christ-follower, trials are a unique opportunity to use Kingdom leverage. If we process well with the Lord, God can gain what he's looking for ... and we can gain new territory in our life and expression of our calling. Amazingly, James writes that we can live joyfully through our trials because of the advantageous outcomes.

What's on the other side of your groaning? It's beyond worth it! "Give ear to my words, O LORD, Consider my groaning" (Ps 5:1). The GROANING GAP is that space between WHAT IS and WHAT WILL BE. It's there that you carry the creative tension of the Holy Spirit. Things want to happen ... in the groaning are seeds of design and destiny. So what are you groaning about? Embrace the potential.
There's a real sense in which the horizons of our lives are placed on a curve. Just like the curvature of the earth where the sky meets the earth. Over-the-horizon thinking and applied faith are necessary to journey into new things that want to happen from heaven's point of view. In this episode, we explore 1) worshipping and praying, 2) visualizing and prophesying, 3) belief set points, and 4) "acting as if" with faith action. All 4 of these elements make up over-the-horizon thinking and faith to move you into new territory.
In Christ you have a true superpower -- it's the capacity to consecrate things. We can consecrate new frontiers -- transitions, new seasons, opportunities -- bringing all things under the lordship and leadership of King Jesus. On the other side of each frontier is new territory you're destined to possess! Listen for 6 key takeaways.
You’re designed for narrative ... your Personal Life Story and the Big Story that’s moving everything.
The Grand Narrative is the loving rule and reign of God. Jesus has come to put things back to right, restoring us as Vice-Regents under God as King.
You need to be super creative about something important, right? Jesus Christ is creative without limits! And the New Testament claims that Christ-followers have the mind of Christ. As we advance in the mind of Christ, we have boundless potential to be super creative ... uber creative.
As Vice-Regents, we are designed to exercise dominion under the sovereignty of God as King. Have you lost your fierceness? It’s costing you. And those in your sphere of influence. Our full-on engagement is required to live our highest life for Christ. The authority is from above, but a fierce mastery must flow through us. Part 2 of the Page One series.
