Are the great exploits of the mighty men of God still available to us today?

Derek, August 29 2018

Or was there a special grace and outpouring of the Spirit on them for their specific time only. Perhaps what was needed back then required something significant — and the same dramatic moving through a single individual isn’t God’s plan anymore. The real question is this: Can I read the biographies of the past and believe them to be literally true...

The relationship between contentment and hunger

Derek, August 29 2018

Talk to me about the relationship between contentment and hunger. The satisfaction of “everyone had enough” contrasted with the hunger required to “earnestly pursue.” Contentment and complacency interchange themselves so seamlessly, that without a keen eye of discernment, we easily turn from one into the other.

Time to put down your tools of iron

Derek, August 29 2018

Proverbs 24:27, “Prepare thy work without, and make it fit for thyself in the field; and afterwards build thine house.” (KJV) In the NLT, “Do your planning and prepare your fields before building your house.” At first glance this seems perhaps an out of order encouragement. Focus on your work, before you make for yourself a home. Don’t erect a dwel...

The Rightful Husband

Derek, August 29 2018

An unshakable sorrow. A sense of deep concern. Both for my own ways and the words I speak and for the body of Christ as a whole. I don’t understand the full meaning of it all. What role do I play? Where are the areas in which I am deceived or deceptive? I would ask for You to intercede on my behalf if I knew where I was in error.

Derek, August 29 2018

This post will continue to expand as we hear and learn new things. It is our attempt to document what we hear the Lord speaking to us. The goal here is capture the words and then to tell the story of how we begin to interpret them and how the words grow on the inside of us to maturity.

God, you are on the move

Derek, August 29 2018

You are turning young hearts towards a burning bush. All who stop to wonder at this marvel they’ve never seen, a marvel which offends their natural mind, will have an invitation extended to them. An invitation to have their own heart consumed by fire. The living testimony to a compromised world is a generation of young hearts consumed with fire, bu...

The freedom to be sanctified

Derek, August 29 2018

In the pursuit of freedom, we’ve forgotten the freedom to choose to be sanctified — We’ve pursued freedom from the law, from traditions, from external works of holiness — pushing the boundaries and demanding no judgement for this lifestyle. Using blanket words such as, “religious spirit,” we’ve pursued these freedoms as though they were a necessary...

Jeremiah 33:3 — strength in the unknowing

Derek, August 29 2018

What great mystery lies in front of you? What impossible task? Are you confronted daily with the immensity of your unknowing? Or are you content in your knowledge? Can you explain, define, and defend every aspect of God’s working and nature? Is your faith for defending, or is it for defying?

The paradox of the Bible - Leonard Ravenhill

Derek, August 29 2018

“Isn’t it a paradox this book. if you want to go up, go down. If you want to gain, throw everything you have away. Lose your life, you’ll find it. Keep your life, you’ll lose it. If you ascend, you’ll be humiliated. If you humble yourself, you’ll be exalted. If you want to be a somebody, be a nobody. So foolish isn’t it?”
