Learning Objective: Understand the connection between insecurity and outcomes. Up your hope in Christ and extend that into your future.

Scriptures: Luke 24:1-35 | John 17:16|1 Peter 2:11

Dear Lord, open my heart to receive your wisdom when it comes to hope. I want to shift my focus from the insecurities I see around me to the security I have in you. I often feel that something has to change in the outcomes I am experiencing these days for me to feel secure. It’s the tie I am making between outcomes and security that results in feelings of insecurity. Why am I looking for the living among the dead? Help me Lord to remember that even though this is not my home I can walk securely knowing you are my hope and you move me to act in accordance with your will. Your will be done in my life. I want what you are serving up today.

Learning Objective: Using your heart, mind and mouth, learn how to claim and activate the power and authority that is yours as a believer in Jesus Christ of Nazareth to override the serpent of fear.

Scriptures: 2 Corinthians 10:4-5 | Ephesians 6:10-12| Luke 10:19, 17 and 9:1 | Psalm 91 | Acts 19:11-15 | Revelations 1:17-18 | Isaiah 41:10 Be Determined to Keep Your Peace in Christ: Philippians 4:6-7 | Colossians 3:15

Dear Lord, I claim in your name the power and authority to override fear in my mind. Help me to take every thought captive and make it obedient to you. The enemy seeks to steal my peace, in your name I reclaim the peace that passes all human understanding along with a determined mindset that allows you to sit on the throne of my heart…direct and guide every thought and word that comes out of my mouth.

Learning Objective: Understand what Jesus meant when He said we need to give up everything to follow Him.

Scriptures: Luke18:18-30 | Luke 14:33 | Zechariah 4:6 | Galatians 5:1, 2:20

Dear Lord,

Everything? Help me to tune into the attachments I have in my life that prevent me from experiencing the fullness of joy, purpose and inner peace you died to give me. Fill me with the grace to release what I have been clinging to in my life for a sense of purpose and identity. Help me to receive you in my mind, will and emotions. I want to emerge from this time of sheltering in place with a resurrected sense of connection to you, and you alone. I am willing to believe that I will never be left empty handed when I surrender all that I am into all that you are. I want freedom in you moving forward.

Questions to Reflect on: Jesus is stopping by today. He asks you to leave everything and to come and follow Him…what is the first thing that pops into your mind that you would want to go back and get or take care of before following Him?

Today we recorded this Podcast on Good Friday 2020. The book referenced in this Podcast is: Stop Letting the World Be the Boss of You! 25 Solutions to Refresh Your Identity in Christ.

In the midst of the coronavirus. Perhaps you are isolated and feel alone. God sees you and adores you. Jesus died and rose again to win your heart over to the ways of God who sees you and adores you. Do you know Jesus love for you? If not and you want to experience life with knowing He is with you, loves you and for you, pray with us:

Dear Lord, You are the greatest love story told to redeem mankind and restore our relationship with God our Father ever told. Father, you created the world which was good and beautiful. Sin entered through Adam and Eve. Jesus, you died for our sins so that those who believe may spend eternity in Heaven with you. I want to experience your love, mercy and forgiveness in my life. I am sorry for each moment I have wondered from love into selfishness and ugly behavior. Save me, I choose you and I want to begin again. Come into my life and make me your own. I want to know you Lord now moving forward on this journey of life.

If you have prayed this prayer, have confidence that Jesus heard your prayer and answered, He loves and adores you. God has plans for your life…good plans. Surrender yourself to Him. Get involved in a faith based Church family. Get a Bible that has Jesus’ words written in red so that you can experience His mercy and love through the gospel message unlocking your faith and restoration. Watch a powerful account of His life: Jesus of Nazareth by Franco Zeffirelli.

Learning Objective: Learn the one thing that unleashed healing, calm and peace in the lives of people who followed Jesus.

Scriptures: Luke 7:9 | Luke 7:41 | Luke 8:25 | Luke 8:48 | Luke 8:50 | Luke 9:37-43 | Luke 12:28 | Luke 17:6 | Luke 18:42 | Luke 21:3 | Luke 21:14 | 1 Chronicles 14:10, 14 | Isaiah 31:1 | 1 Corinthians 10

Dear Lord, you would often say: “your faith has made you well, go in peace.” Help us to remember what that feels like to abide in your peace. What it feels like to live by faith rather than sight. Increase our faith factor today. Just like the woman who reached out, touched your cloak and was healed, we reach out to you today for healing for our land. Heal us from all fear, anxiety, worry and doubt. That woman was bound by 12 years and she had faith in you. It’s only been a few weeks and our fears too often override our faith. Come King of Kings, Prince of Peace and heal our land.

Do You Live by Faith or Sight?

Learning Objective: Listen how to resurrect your joy and confidence in God in the midst of uncertain circumstances around you.

Scriptures: Habakkuh: 1, 2, 3 | Galatians 3:3 | Zechariah 4:6| Romans 1:17 | Galatians 3:11

Dear God, I want to live by faith not by what I see around me. Remind my mind of what the Holy Spirit knows: you sit on your almighty throne, you are my fortress, deliverer, protector and guide in the eye of the storm. When I can’t see, you see all. When I can’t hear, you hear all. Give strength to my soul to put my hope, trust, faith and confidence in you. Lord, in you I lack nothing and consider everything a loss compared to the riches of your presence within my soul. Make me more aware today than yesterday of the riches and depth of your love for me and may I share that will all those around me.

Are You a Buffalo or a Cow?

Edge God In Podcast 66: How does your behavior reflect the presence of Jesus? Are you setting your mind on things above or below? Are you a buffalo or a cow?

Scriptures: Colossians 3:2 | Luke 16:19-31 | Luke 4 | 1 Corinthians 14:33 | 1 John 4:18

Dear God, help me. I am in a scarcity mindset. I see fear all around me and I feel myself getting high-jacked into the chaos. You died to set me free from the yoke of slavery to fear. Remind my mind of what my soul always knows: you have already overcome all that I feel is overcoming me today. I reclaim you as Lord in my life. Come into every crevice of fear, scarcity and doubtful thinking. I want to think the way you thinking. Devine intelligence to maintain joy and peace in the eye of the storm. Just as Paul pressed on to grab ahold of all that you called him to, resurrect your strength within me so that people see you in me, your loving, generous presence in the midst of chaos and confession…USE ME to make you recognizable in the midst of it all.

The Stress of Striving
