Firestorm or whirlwind – or baby?

By Dave Henning / November 30, 2022

“Why would God come this time in the form of a baby, rather than a firestorm or whirlwind?  Because this time he has come not to bring judgment but to bear it, to pay the penalty for our sins, to take away the barrier between humanity and God, so we can be together.  Jesus is […]


Shaky in your faith right now?

By Dave Henning / November 13, 2022

“You may be shaky in your faith right now or timid in times of confusion and doubt.  God can raise you up to complete great works for Him. . . .  [Moses’] story gives all of us an example of what it means to be redeemed from the frailties of our flesh and used by […]


Make holiness formulaic?

By Dave Henning / October 20, 2022

“It’s easy to make holiness formulaic, something achieved.  But the distinct life God desires of us is not something based on humanity’s achievement or moralism.  Instead, it emerges in the relationship between God and us.  And such a relationship requires presence: God’s presence in our lives.”- Timothy D. Willard “Then the LORD came down in […]


The context of grace – enter solitude

By Dave Henning / December 7, 2021

“We enter into solitude first of all to meet our Lord and to be with Him and Him alone.  Only in the context of grace can we face our sin; only in the place of healing do we dare to show our wounds; only with a single-minded attention to Christ can we give up our […]


The Lord of the Harvest works steps ahead

By Dave Henning / October 21, 2021

“Even though the harvest isn’t what you thought, the harvest is still here.  The Lord of the Harvest is always working many steps ahead of us, and what he has produced in and through us is not always immediately evident. . . .  You are not forgotten when the harvest looks different than you dreamed.”- […]


Valley of development – destiny prep

By Dave Henning / February 18, 2021

“The road to your destiny passes through a valley of development.  This is where God prepares you for your destiny and prepares everything and everyone else related to your destiny for you.  Most of us don’t like to think about going through a time of development.  It doesn’t usually make for great stories in the […]


A higher and deeper calling from God

By Dave Henning / May 15, 2020

“But what happens when God calls you higher and deeper out of his great love for you?  God saw Moses.  He knew the ugliness in Moses’s story, yet he still called Moses to follow him.  Moses needed God’s might power to enable him for the task at hand.  We do too.  This calling is a […]


Hall of Fame candidates for greatness?

By Dave Henning / December 12, 2019

“Originally, Moses was an unlikely prospect for the Leadership Hall of Fame.  The good news is that God doesn’t search through the Hall of Fame to find candidates for greatness.  God often starts with losers.  Washouts.  Those with broken lives and downtrodden spirits.”- Charles Swindoll “There (Mt. Sinai) the angel of the LORD appeared to […]


Approach God’s throne as a child

By Dave Henning / October 13, 2018

“Understand your place in the family.  You come to God not as a stranger but as an heir to the promise.  You approach God’s throne not as an interloper but as a child in whom the Spirit of God dwells.”- Max Lucado “This resurrection life you receive from God is not a timid grave-tending life.  […]


A raging pestilence- “I can’t”

By Dave Henning / December 20, 2015

Max Lucado begins Chapter 2 (“Inherit Your Inheritance”) of Glory Days with the bold assertion that it is time to declare war on a raging pestilence that goes by the name “I can’t.”  This malady contaminates lives by attacking our self-control, our careers, and our faith. Pastor Lucado says no one would have blamed Joshua […]


“I yam what I yam”

By Dave Henning / October 24, 2012

John Ortberg begins Chapter 1 of The Life You’ve Always Wanted: Spiritual Disciplines for Ordinary People with a statement by his childhood hero, cartoon character and philosopher Popeye the Sailor Man: “”I yam what I yam.”  Popeye would say this whenever he felt frustrated or had no idea what else to do. Pastor Ortberg notes […]
