      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 […]


        No withholding tax – operate with integrity

        By Dave Henning / January 9, 2020

        “If we operate with integrity, there is no withholding tax on the blessings of God.  And that’s the good, isn’t it?  To live in such a way that God is able to give us His full blessing — blessings beyond our ability to ask or imagine.  Don’t settle for anything less or anything else.”- Mark […]


          Your point of greatest giftedness

          By Dave Henning / January 8, 2020

          God wants to use you at your greatest point of giftedness, no doubt.  He’s the one who gave you those gifts in the first place!  But God also wants to use you at your point of weakness.  Why?  Because it’s in our weaknesses that His power is made perfect.  He doesn’t just anoint our strong […]


            A Mandelbrot set = the blessings of God

            By Dave Henning / January 7, 2020

            “The blessings of God are a Mandelbrot set.  They aren’t one size fits all.  Each blessing is custom-fitted to your complexity and, I might add, your personality.  Take the mercy of God, for example.  The mercy God has shown you is a unique as your fingerprint.”- Mark Batterson “The steadfast love of the Lord never […]


              Who’s in your driver’s seat?

              By Dave Henning / January 6, 2020

              In Chapter 3 (“What Drives Your Life?”) of The Purpose Driven Life, Rick Warren discusses 5 of the most common circumstances, values, and emotions that can drive our life and obstruct our relationship with Jesus. 1.Guilt: People driven by guilt are manipulated by past memories and hurts.  Following our ministry downsizing or career loss, we may […]


                Mercies as sure as the sunrise

                By Dave Henning / January 6, 2020

                “If you are in Christ, you are under God’s covering.  That’s worth celebrating every single day — His mercies are as sure as the sunrise.  That said, we have to make a daily decision to stay under the umbrella of God’s blessing by walking in obedience.”- Mark Batterson “If you fully obey the LORD your […]


                  Umbrella of blessing = an extra measure of grace

                  By Dave Henning / January 5, 2020

                  “I like to think of the blessing of God as an umbrella.  An umbrella doesn’t change the forecast.  Life will rain pain, that’s for sure.  But the blessing of God does provide a covering of sorts, an extra layer of protection against the elements. . . .  Of course, we have to position ourselves under […]


                    Prisoner of perspective, or prisoner of hope?

                    By Dave Henning / January 4, 2020

                    “If you let your circumstances define the way you see God, you are a prisoner of perspective.  Or worse, a prisoner of your past mistakes.  But if you let God define the way you see your circumstances, you are a prisoner of hope.”- Mark Batterson “Return to your stronghold, O prisoners of hope; today I […]


                      A supplement to praying = God’s blessing

                      By Dave Henning / January 3, 2020

                      “The blessing of God is not a substitute for praying like it depends on God or working like it depends on us.  It’s a supplement. . . .  The blessing of God is anything but a good-luck charm.  You cannot earn it, but you’ll have to work for it.  And while it’s absolutely free, it’ll […]


                        Standard of giving or standard of living?

                        By Dave Henning / January 2, 2020

                        ” . . . the endgame is not getting but giving!  God doesn’t bless us to raise our standard of living.  God blesses us to raise our standard of giving.  In the words of Winston Churchill, ‘We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.’ “- Mark […]


                          Original blessing – original sin

                          By Dave Henning / January 1, 2020

                          “Before original sin, there was original blessing.  And so life is!  That first blessing sets the tone, sets the table. . . .  It also reveals God’s most ancient instinct.  Blessing is God’s default setting — His first and foremost reflex.  If you don’t believe that, you’ll doubt the goodness of God.”- Mark Batterson God […]


                            Fragrance that emanates from hope in Christ

                            By Dave Henning / December 31, 2019

                            “Instead of focusing on your thorns, allow the fragrance that emanates from the hope you have in Christ to wash over you.  Embrace your struggle as a gift from God . . .”- Charles Swindoll “Now I am glad to boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ can work through me.  That’s […]
