    Part the river before we step in

    By Dave Henning / February 3, 2020

    “We want God to part the river before we step into it.  Why?  So our shoes don’t get wet.  We want God to go first so it doesn’t require any faith.  But this is where so many of us get stuck spiritually.  We’re waiting for God to part the waters, while God is waiting for […]

      Blessing begins with seeing – agape seeing

      By Dave Henning / July 27, 2019

      “Blessing begins with seeing.  Before words of blessing can reach toward future vision, we must attend to present reality.  And that means we must turn our gaze from ourselves . . . and see others as they long to be seen.  This is agape seeing, a way of seeing grounded in love and sacrifice.  It […]

        Challenges and obstacles in life

        By Dave Henning / May 13, 2019

        “It’s easy to look at the things of this world to solve our challenges and obstacles in life, but when we submit our lives to Christ, His grace, mercy, peace, and love will bring true fulfillment to our lives.”- Bethany Hamilton, professional surfer who ultimately returned to competition following 2003 shark attack in which she […]

          Perhaps God will do more than you imagined

          By Dave Henning / October 15, 2018

          “Will God do what you ask?  Perhaps. Or perhaps he will do more than you imagined.  Stand firmly on this promise: ‘When a believing person prays, great things happen’ (James 5:17, NCV).  You are never without hope, because you are never without prayer.”- Max Lucado Max Lucado concludes Chapter 5 of Unshakable Hope with more […]

            Spending an entire day alone with God

            By Dave Henning / July 31, 2018

            “Spending an entire day alone with God may sound scary or difficult to pull off.  But think of not doing it.  Imagine reaching the age of seventy, having received more than 25,000 days as a gift from God, and not having given a single one back to him because you were ‘too busy.’ “- John […]

              Bestowing his favor all around us

              By Dave Henning / June 9, 2018

              “The funny thing is God is constantly bestowing his favor all around us — changing minds and hearts all around us — and all we need is the ‘eyes to see’ and ‘ears to hear,’ as Jesus said, to notice what is happening around us.”- Brian Jones Brian Jones concludes Chapter 7 of Finding Favor […]

                Paralyzed with awe at the power of prayer

                By Dave Henning / June 8, 2018

                “I strongly suspect that if we saw all the difference even the tiniest of our prayers make, and all the people those little prayers were destined to effect, and all the consequences of those prayers down through the centuries, we would be so paralyzed with awe at the power of prayer that we would be […]

                  Firmly anchored in Scripture, the final authority

                  “Scripture is the final authority, and our ability to hear God speaking to us is connected to our roots being firmly anchored in Scripture.  God is not speaking in a way that supersedes His written word or that adds to it, but He is speaking to us in a variety of ways.”- Banning Liebscher Banning […]

                    Pregnant with a word from the Lord

                    “When you’re pregnant with a word from the Lord, it might be months, years, or decades before the word comes full term and you can deliver it, but you have a responsibility to carry that word until then.  How you carry that word matters greatly.”- Banning Liebscher “Not so, my lord,” Hannah replied. “I am […]
