      New robes of righteousness

      By Dave Henning / April 3, 2020

      “God clothes us in new robes of righteousness (Isaiah 61:10) — a truth that should cause us to rejoice and want to celebrate with others this new name!  If you knew your name was ‘Righteous,’ would you continue to believe that you’re unworthy, not good enough, or disappointing to God?”- Esther Fleece Allen “I delight […]

        An incredible invitation found in Christ

        By Dave Henning / April 2, 2020

        “In Christ we find an incredible invitation: we are invited to live, not as abandoned orphans seeking love through perfect performance, but as adopted sons and daughters with a holy heritage — loved and  chosen, just as we are.”- Esther Fleece Allen “Father to the fatherless, defender of widows — this is God, whose dwelling […]

          The perfect Father – our heavenly Father

          By Dave Henning / April 1, 2020

          “Pastor Louie Giglio says that the heavenly Father is not a perfected version of our earthly parents.  He is the perfect Father.  In other words, God is not a better version of your good parent or your not-so-good parent.  God is perfectly good, perfectly whole, and perfectly loving, and when we become His children, we […]

            Establishing a familiarity with our new name

            By Dave Henning / March 31, 2020

            “Establishing a familiarity with our new name will not be a quick fix, nor will it be an overnight path to break unhealthy cycles of dysfunction.  Those of us with a past (hint: all of us) will need to spend intentional moments ensuring that our past brokenness does not become our present or future brokenness.”- […]

              Struggle with our new name and identity

              By Dave Henning / March 30, 2020

              “Most of us struggle with our new name and identity.  We will typically face internal struggles before we face external difficulties. . . .  But if we take time to know who we are in Christ — and not just know our new names in our minds but meditate on them and let them dwell […]

                What negative thing people said about you

                By Dave Henning / March 29, 2020

                “No matter what negative thing people have said about you, this is not what God’s name is for you.  God sees much deeper than the external cards we’ve been dealt and looks into our hearts (1 Samuel 16:7).  God calls us a new name based on who He sees us as, not on who others […]

                  Overidentifying with our circumstances

                  By Dave Henning / March 28, 2020

                  “Overidentifying with our circumstances prevents us from hearing God’s new name for us.  We are not our circumstances on either a good day or a bad day, and reminding ourselves of this truth is a discipline we need to live out on a daily basis.  Christian author Judy Douglass says, ‘God always knows which name […]

                    “God wants to help us get to the place where  — in every area of our lives and hearts — we come to realize what God has done for us is bigger than what others have done to us.  Where what God has said about us is greater than what others have said about us […]
