This is a time for us to understand that the only thing that we can stand on are the promises that God speaks over our lives though the work of Jesus. Only people of promise will see the fullness of God - people who take on life despite the challenges that come their way. Andrew looks at the story of Goliath and shows how the biggest issue facing us today is judgement - when we have a heart that has not been freed by grace and love then bitterness, criticism and judgement means that totally limit God in our lives. Live free by living in Gods Promises.
Most of us have had things happen to us that we did not want or expect to happen. Life throws us detours all the time. These events can either destroy us or can be a springboard for discovering the purpose of God for our lives. Andrew looks at what we need to resolve in order to make we stay on track and receive all that God has for us, both personally & corporately. This week is about being in the presence of God - in that place we are healed, restored, rebuilt, encouraged & we find hope, love & deliverance. Andrew lays out that Exchange is a church where we want men & women to encounter the presence of Jesus in love & power. In that place of encounter they are changed.
Evan Brown talks on the last Sunday of 2013 and reflects on how finding a place of Rest in life is not sitting around and waiting on God to move for you, but is a place a co-labouring with Christ from the finished work of the Cross. Be blessed an start finding your rest in the finished work of Christ and the knowledge that God is with us and we can rest in the knowledge the we a working from a place of victory.
New years always cause us to take stock and think about those things that we would like to see different. One of the things that we can be sure of is that in 2014 you will face challenges both corporately and personally. Often we experience fear because we cannot control many of the situations that we face. What are you going to put in place this year to make sure that you simply do not replay the same scenes as last year. Andrew looks at an example from the life of Jesus and shows a simple key that will lead to you having victory and breakthrough rather than stagnation & defeat.
In Luke 2 God lets us in on what His Plan was in sending Jesus - The war is over between God and men. The angels declared a prophetic statement over your life that if you will receive today will release the goodness and fullness of God int your life. God steps into your broken ness, hopelessness and fear and says that He HAS restored you. This is a message of Hope, Love and encouragement that God has done an incredible work in you, LWatch and see what God says over your life today.
