Listening to something – house you live in

By Dave Henning / August 19, 2021

“Each day you and I are listening to something.  The hard days seem to be the days when doubt shouts its greatest lies.  But what you listen to becomes the house you live in.  God is always speaking. . . .  Most of the time, we are the ones who struggle to listen.  And this […]

Getting a grip – walk the line

By Dave Henning / August 18, 2021

“But for all of us, [faith assignments involve] getting a grip on the daily practice of moving across the line from one mountain to the next and strengthening our faith.  This is what it means to daily make a decision to walk with God.” – Nicki Koziarz “Do not come near; take your sandals off […]

Spiritual victims of our circumstances?

By Dave Henning / August 17, 2021

“Disbelief loves for us to become spiritual victims of our circumstances.  It knows that if it can hold us hostage, the next time our faith is stretched, doubt will appear.  And if doubt wins, unbelief is soon to follow.  And then?  It’s often the point of no return.”- Nicki Koziarz My God, my God, why […]

A daily decision to show up before God

By Dave Henning / August 15, 2021

“[Noah] made a decision to walk with God.  This was not an out for a-few-laps-around-the-park kinda walk.  It was a place in his soul where he became settled on who God was to him through a daily decision to show up before God.”- Nicki Koziarz “But Noah found favor in the eyes of the LORD.  […]

Belief and unbelief – our soul conflict

By Dave Henning / August 14, 2021

“I’ve come to understand the conflict in our souls that never ends is the one between belief and unbelief.  Doubt is the dangerous place we linger in the middle of the battle between the two.  If we don’t understand why we have to change our mind (repent) and make intentional decisions to deflect doubt, life […]

Win battles behind closed doors

By Dave Henning / August 13, 2021

“The strongest people in my life are the ones who know how to win battles behind closed doors that no one knows about.  They know how to rise above the hard and pursue the holy.  And they know that bad days do not equal a bad life.”- Nicki Koziarz “I do not seek to understand […]

A Hallmark moment that sounds nice

By Dave Henning / August 11, 2021

“The danger here is that [intercession] can quickly become a Hallmark moment that sounds nice but has no real meaning.  But being present to the Lord is vastly different from sending thoughts to someone.  What we find in Scripture provides us with a more compelling reality.”- Kyle Strobel “For though I am absent in body, […]

Intercession – one obvious mode of prayer?

By Dave Henning / August 10, 2021

“Intercession seems like the one obvious mode of prayer.  What could be simpler than asking God for good things for others?  Just do it!  What more could be said?  The sense that intercession is obvious, even if we find it difficult to do (or difficult to remember to do) points to our failure to focus […]

A deep excavation – the prayer of examine

By Dave Henning / August 9, 2021

“While prayers of examine may have a general rhythm to them — walking through our days with the Lord to consider our lives in his presence — they can also become times to sit and deeply consider something too significant to ignore. . . .  The prayer of examine is a deep excavation of one’s […]

The prayer of examine – set aside time

By Dave Henning / August 8, 2021

“The prayer of examine is built on the belief that if we pay attention to our lives, every moment is an opportunity to learn unceasing prayer (1 Thess. 5:17).  This prayer is an examination of one of our most precious commodities, our time.  If we do not set aside time to intentionally consider moment by […]
