Praise is an incredible weapon that you have been given to see impossible things happen. Praise heals, releases, restores, changes and delivers. Today Andrew looks at one of the most complete pictures of grace in the entire bible and how Praise released an incredible victory for God's people. This is not about waving your hands in church - it is about learning to live a lifestyle that releases the power of God no matter where you are. Most of us live in the gap between hearing the promise of God and seeing it come to pass - in that gap if we will praise then we will see deliverance. Powerful & encouraging.
You are not defined by your circumstances. You are not defined by your fears. You are not defined by the opinions of others and what they say about you. Every day God steps into your life and call you by your true identity - As a son & a daughter of the King of Kings. Adam Turnbull finishes our Greater series by showing how the story that we have just gone through is for you today. If God could do it through a nervous, doubting wreck like Gideon then you are ready for your miracle too. You are qualified and God is ready. This is a great encouragement!
Discouragement & disappointment are no respecter of people. They do not discriminate. Left unattended they limit what God can do in our lives. We all know what it is like to face tough times and many of us have had to face tough seasons that have lasted for years. How do we deal with that? Is it even possible to live in such a way that we use hard times as a platform for our future? Andrew looks at Gideon and how he overcame the very thing that tortured him and the nation of Israel for years. Despite his doubts & weakness we see clearly how we too can face down our discouragement & take the limits off God
When was the last time that you did something that really stretched you and pushed you beyond what you are able to do in your own strength? If your life looks like it was all done in your strength then you are limiting God. God continually gives us the opportunity take steps that, when we look at them in the natural, seem to be crazy. The truth is though that God is asking you to trust him & take a risk because it propels you to a new level & experience of life. This week Phil Glasgow looks at how God asked Gideon to take a step into a situation that to anyone seemed absolutely & totally crazy.
