A soft reset – forgiveness

By Dave Henning / July 24, 2023

“Salvation is a hard reset; our sin is forgiven and forgotten.  We are justified, just as if we had never sinned.  But forgiveness is a soft reset.  It’s something you need to do over and over again.”- Mark Batterson “However, as it is written: ‘What no eye has seen, what no ear has heard, and […]


Nothing appears in visible form

By Dave Henning / December 17, 2022

“Of [the Holy Spirit] nothing appears in visible form.  He never steps out from the intangible void.  Hovering, undefined, incomprehensible.  He remains a mystery.  He is as the wind.  We can hear its sound, but can not tell whence it cometh and whither it goeth.  Eyes can not see Him, ear can not hear Him, […]


The Holy Spirit comes with power

By Dave Henning / December 14, 2022

“Mark it down.  The Holy Spirit comes with power.  Power to make good choices, keep promises, and silence the inner voices of fear and failure. . . .  Power to face the unexpected passages of time. . . .  This is what Jesus promised then, and this is what Jesus promises now.”- Max Lucado “But […]


Holy Spirit veto power

By Dave Henning / March 1, 2022

“Morality is not rooted in an opinion poll.  It’s not decided by the Supreme Court either!  My advice?  Let your conscience be your guide.  Scripture is our final authority.  If you’re going to live a countercultural life, you’ve got to give the Holy Spirit veto power.”- Mark Batterson Mark Batterson concludes Day 7 of Do […]

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 […]


Catching the wind of the Spirit

By Dave Henning / July 11, 2021

Merely eclipsed for a moment

By Dave Henning / May 30, 2021

“Satan tried to snuff out Peter’s faith, but it was merely eclipsed for a moment.  This can happen to any of us, and probably will.  Peter fell in the dirt of doubt, but he rose again a few days later. . . .  Perter felt disqualified because of his failure and went back to doing […]

Let God unshell you – discover your language

By Dave Henning / August 25, 2019

The Holy Spirit – a package deal

By Dave Henning / April 3, 2019

“You cannot listen to just half of what the Holy Spirit has to say.  It’s a package deal.  If you aren’t willing to listen to everything He has to say, you won’t hear anything He has to say.  If you tune out his convicting voice, you won’t hear His comforting voice or guiding voice either.”- […]

By Dave Henning / December 29, 2018

Abound in hope through the Holy Spirit’s power

By Dave Henning / October 25, 2018

“Never lose hope? . . . be fainthearted? . . . feel overwhelmed?  Never get sucked into the sewer of despair?  Can you imagine?  No day lost to anguish?  No decision driven by fear?  This is God’s will for you and me.  He want us to ‘abound in hope by the power of the Holy […]
