    A Better Alternative To Name It and Claim It Theology

    10/07/2019 Duração: 33min

    Ever notice in the Bible that Jesus Himself never once named or claimed anything when praying to His Father in Heaven?  There, in the Garden of Gethsemane, Jesus prayed, “My Father, if it is possible, let this cup pass from Me; yet not as I will, but as You will.” He stated His human desire, yes, but He surrendered to the will of the Father. His ultimate desire was the Father's desire.  In the latest of episode of In the Meanwhile, we take a closer look at the whole teaching of Scripture and how it applies to the popular movement often referred to it as "Name It and Claim It."  We also share a framework for developing a posture of submission to God's will, and – hint, hint –it has everything to do with the progression of our thoughts to speech to action.

    Download In our first "In the Meanwhile" podcast of the new year, Page and I review 2018 and look forward to the rest of 2019. Our title is fitting. We've seen some "drama" as Page likes to say, but so many blessings in disguise through unexpected, or "stranger" things. Show Notes In this episode, we play off the title of the popular TV series, "Stranger Things" and talk about those unexpected, or "strange" circumstances the Lord can bring our way and how we can have a biblical perspective during those times. Some examples of stranger things we discuss are: The loss of a job Closed doors A "No" rather than a "Yes" answer to our prayers Derailed plans Food for Thought: There is a difference between consistency and security. There is no such thing as security outside our salvation in Jesus Christ. Jesus learned obedience through suffering. What does that mean for us?

    Download Our latest 'In the Meanwhile" podcast is inspired by a very real answer to prayer for a dear family member and also to the circumstances behind the new "meanwhile" that Page and I find ourself in right now. These circumstances in our lives remind us that it is God who provides our manna for us daily just like He daily provided for the children of Israel. They also remind us to depend on Him as our ultimate Provider. Deuteronomy 8:16 encourages us, He fed you in the wilderness with manna that your fathers had not known, in order to humble and test you, so that in the end He might cause you to prosper. Our times of need have a purpose! We hope you'll listen in as we share a very special "manna moment" we experienced quite a while ago but is still impacting us today and also why those manna moments are worth much more than we can imagine. We also hope you'll share a special manna moment from your life -- whether God provided a physical need or a spiritual need. You can share right here at the top of our
