      Prophesying our praise – keeping perspective

      By Dave Henning / January 21, 2020

      “One of the best ways to keep our sense of perspective is by prophesying our praise.  It’s not just praising God for what He has already done, past tense.  It’s praising God by faith for what He will do, future tense.  Instead of focusing on your circumstances, it’s declaring the character of God, the promises […]

        God placed in the hands of angry people

        By Dave Henning / January 20, 2020

        “If you project human failings onto God, you end up with ‘God in the Hands of Angry People.’  It’s not God’s fault, unless you blame Him for giving us free will.”- Mark Batterson, Double Blessing “May the LORD smile on you and be gracious to you.  May the LORD show you his favor and give […]

          By Dave Henning / January 19, 2020

          “According to legend, when the knights of the Round Table returned to King Arthur’s court after battle, they were carefully examined.  If their bodies did not bear any battle scars, they were sent back into battle with an exhortation: ‘Go and get your scars!’ “- Mark Batterson Mark Batterson continues Chapter 6 of Double Blessing […]

            Break a sweat for your faith

            By Dave Henning / January 18, 2020

            “God blesses those who are willing to break a sweat for what they believe in. . . .  You can’t just pray like it depends on God.  You also have to work like it depends on you.  The blessing of God doesn’t just fall into our laps.”- Mark Batterson As Mark Batterson continues Chapter 6 […]

              A sanctified stubborn streak – sisu to the Finns

              By Dave Henning / January 17, 2020

              “[The persistent widow] . . . had what I would  call a sanctified stubborn streak.  Folks like her don’t take no for  an answer, but they don’t take yes for an answer either.  Why?  Because they’re always believing God for something bigger, something better.”- Mark Batterson “But this woman is driving me crazy.  I’m going […]

                Ritual reminders of God’s blessings

                By Dave Henning / January 16, 2020

                “Ritual reminders of God’s blessings are mission critical. . . .  [take] inventory of your blessings so you can flip them.  Suffice it to say, you’ve got to establish blessing rituals that fit your spiritual rhythm.”- Mark Batterson “Whenever Aaron and his sons bless the people of Israel in my name, I myself will bless […]

                  A healthy and holy identity – the key

                  By Dave Henning / January 15, 2020

                  “The key to a healthy and holy identity is believing that you are who God says you are.  Believing yourself to be anything les than who God says isn’t doing anyone any favors.  Including you.”- Mark Batterson “The LORD your God is with you, the Mighty Warrior who saves.  He will take great delight in […]

                    Christians who belie the heart of God

                    By Dave Henning / January 14, 2020

                    “Christians who belie the heart of God with their lack of love . . . project their own imperfections onto God, and He becomes ‘God in the Hands of Angry People.’  The result is way too many people rejecting God for all the wrong reasons!  They reject God for who He’s not.  They reject a […]

                      Your testimony – the power to set people free

                      By Dave Henning / January 13, 2020

                      “Your testimony has the power to set other people free! How?  Well, if God did it for you, He can do it for them.  And if God did it before, He can do it again.  A testimony is a prophetic blessing.  It is the seedbed where faith takes root and bears fruit.”- Mark Batterson “For […]

                        Adulterated affection and exploited power

                        By Dave Henning / January 12, 2020

                        “I wish this were as simple as it sounds, but we live in an age of adulterated affection and exploited power.  Pure love and true power are hard to find and even harder to trust.  Why?  Because so many have been betrayed by a kiss and that false kiss feels like a curse.”- Mark Batterson […]

                          A drop of water – complex, not simple

                          By Dave Henning / January 11, 2020

                          “A drop of water is not as simple as it seems.  In fact, it’s more complex than we can imagine.  What’s true of water is true of you, and it’s true of God’s blessings too. . . .  Now you know why a single drop of water graces the cover of this book!  It represents […]

                            Promotion of man or favor of God?

                            By Dave Henning / January 10, 2020

                            “Don’t sacrifice the favor of God for the promotion of man.  Just as the first will be last and the last will be first, sometimes what seems like a step backward proves to be a giant leap forward. . . .  Integrity is staying in the lane of blessing, even when you feel like changing […]
