Podcast #204: “Control (Somehow You Want Me)” by Tenth Avenue North

Seeing Jacob Give Up Control in Genesis 28

Everyone has a story. Part of the beauty of God’s Word is when we can identify with the people God chose to weave into His BIG story of redemption. Tenth Avenue North’s song “Control (Somehow You Want Me)” leads us to explore Jacob in the book of Genesis.

There is a distinct time and place where Jacob gives control to God. Let’s consider this place of surrender together.

Podcast #203: “Get Down” by Finding Favour

Getting Down in Prayer with Daniel and Friends

I find it fascinating which prayers and songs God chose to include in His Word. Of all the prayers lifted in all of time it’s a good idea for us to explore the ones included in Scripture. Finding Favour’s song, “Get Down,” is our inspiration to learn more about one of Daniel’s prayers.

I can’t wait for you to see how much you learn about God in this prayer.

Podcast #173: “Find You Here” by Ellie Holcomb

Instruction in Suffering in 1 Peter

Challenges in our lives will never stop coming. Like waves that ebb and flow in strength and number, our trials and suffering come in and go out, but they never stop coming. The solution is to fix our eyes on God and the hope revealed in His Word. Ellie Holcomb’s song “Find You Here” reminds us that He is in the midst of each ordeal…even the darkest ones.

Peter knew he needed to prepare believers for fiery trials, too. Let’s let our song lead us there this week.

Podcast #154: “No Longer Slaves” by I Am They

Discarding Christ-Plus Slavery in Galatians

We all want freedom. After all, who wants to live in bondage? The irony is that freedom has been purchased for us by Christ and we accept it heartily and then immediately take steps that place ourselves in bondage again. This is what the churches in Galatia were doing in the days of Paul. This week’s featured song, “No Longer Slaves” as sung by I Am They, leads us to this letter to the Galatians and Paul’s stern correction.

I hope we can heed the warning of Paul and walk in the freedom Christ provides.

Podcast #136: “Live Like You’re Loved” by Hawk Nelson

An Example of Living Loved Through the Life of Joseph in Genesis 37-50

There is something that happens when you begin to understand that you are fully loved by God. But it is an entirely different process to start LIVING loved. Hawk Nelson’s song, “Live Like You’re Loved,” sent me on a journey through a good portion of Genesis to examine the life of a man who gives us an example of living loved.

Get lost in the story of Joseph with me this week. I hope it will challenge you as much as it has challenged me.
