Act of remaining true to one's life partner
We continue talking about FAITHFULNESS today. Faithful to our word, faithful to church attendance, faithful to be on time, faithful in the daily etiquette and courtesies of life, and faithful to the end. "Continued acts of faithfulness add up to strength of character, to resiliency and preparation for end times."
Genesis 12:2 (NKJV) “I will make you a great nation;I will bless you and make your name great; and you shall be a blessing.” Romans 4 (MSG) We call Abraham “father” not because he got God's attention by living like a saint, but because God made something out of Abraham when he was a nobody. Abraham was first named “father” and then became a father because he dared to trust God to do what only God could do: raise the dead to life, with a word make something out of nothing.When everything was hopeless, Abraham believed anyway, deciding to live not on the basis of what he saw he couldn't do but on what God said he would do. Psalm 37:3-5 (NKJV) Trust in the LORD, and do good; Dwell in the land, and feed on His faithfulness.Delight yourself also in the LORD, And He shall give you the desires of your heart.Commit your way to the LORD, Trust also in Him, And He shall bring it to pass. Joshua 1:8 (AMP) This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth,you shall read, meditate on it day and night,so that you may be careful to do everything in accordance with all that is written in it;for then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will be successful. (Put your name here) John 10:10 (AMP) “The thief comes only in order to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life, and have it in abundance, to the full, till it overflows.” And it may sound over simple, but Jesus is asking us the same thing today. Simply Trust, Delight, Commit. Isaiah 1:19 (NKJV) “If you are willing and obedient, You shall eat the good of the land;” Living inspired starts with with a willing heart. Deuteronomy 28:13 (NKJV) “And the LORD will make you the head and not the tail; you shall be above only, and not be beneath, if you heed the commandments of the LORD your God, which I command you today, and are careful to observe them.” TRUST IN THE LORDDELIGHT YOURSELF IN THE LORDCOMMIT YOUR WAY TO THE LORD Joshua 1:8 (AMP) This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth,you shall read, meditate on it day and night,so that you may be careful to do everything in accordance with all that is written in it;for then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will be successful. Romans 4:19 (NKJV) “And not being weak in faith, he did not consider his own body, already dead (since he was about a hundred years old), and the deadness of Sarah's womb.”
Do you ever feel like you're not being promoted in certain areas in your life? Have you been feeling ‘stuck' and motionless? In this message, Pastor Vlad goes into the story of Joshua as God revealed his purpose in life and the journey between them. We pray that this message will encourage you in the season you're in, no matter what it may be. May God minister to your heart and may you feel rejuvenated in your spirit. Notes: Joshua 3:7 Joshua 4:14 1. God's promotion follows God's process. Joshua served Moses - Ex 17:9; Ex 24:13-18 Joshua served God - Ex 33:11 Joshua spied out the land - Num 13:8 Joshua was Moses' successor - Num 27:18-23 2. God's promotion is not connected to a position but to the Presence. The process is you learning to be with God. The promotion is God's power being with you. 3. God's promotion is for God's purpose. John 15:2 Favor follows faithfulness. Favor leads to fruitfulness. Faithfulness blesses me. Fruitfulness blesses the world. Favor is not so that I can keep talking about my faithfulness but so that I can walk into my fruitfulness. Exaltation is for exploits.

God's faithfulness is to all generations, and we can learn lessons through the lives of those that went before us. When we face trials and tribulations in our lives, let's choose obedience; let's be courageous; and let's be thankful. When we keep our eyes on the Lord, living surrendered, we can trust that He is working out all things for our good.

We have so much to be thankful for, and we love hearing what God is doing in your life. This episode will bless you and challenge you to be on the lookout for God moving in your circumstances. He is worthy of our praises!
In our culture "love" feels cheap. The divorce rate is overwhelming and we as a culture are constantly trying to redefine what love even is... but when we look to the scriptures we find that God defines Himself as love, and that this word is never separated from faithfulness. The two are inseparable. Today we continue to look at the character and nature of God as we continue in week 5 of our series God Has A Name.
In the aftermath of spiritual abuse by toxic leaders of a cult, Athena Holtz's shattered life seemed hopeless. She desperately needed to be rescued and redeemed from the ruins of spiritual abuse. Deceived by Scientology, the New Age movement, and twelve years in a restrictive and legalistic cult, she lost everything--her marriage, relationships, home, business, money, and reputation--gone. But the devestation of spiritual abuse is not how this story ends... In this candid and inspirational episode, Athena shares how her shattered life was transformed. Hear how God restored what was taken from her, and how He gave her the desires of her heart, including the love of her life (see their sweet photo below!). Athena affectionately refers to her full-circle story as a Cinderella story and it is truly an amazing one! I know what Athena has to share will encourage, inspire, and challenge you so listen in while I have a chat with Athena Dean Holtz... Favorite Quotes from the show... "...everytime I had a thought--one of those thoughts that I was brainwashed into thinking--I'd say, 'Holy Spirit, what do You say?'""...it was my wounding that made me vulnerable to deception." --Athena Dean Holtz Connect with Athena! You can connect with Athena at athenadeanholtz.com and pick up her amazing book Full Circle: Coming Home to the Faithfulness of God where you'll find more of Athena's amazing God story of redemption and restoration. More About Athena... Athena Dean Holtz is a podcaster, former radio host, author, speaker, publisher, bookstore owner, and pastor's wife. After 13 years of a “Job-like” experience where she lost everything she held dear, she found God redeeming her in ways she could never have expected. Through this intense period of suffering and healing from the fallout of toxic leadership and extreme spiritual abuse, God proved Himself faithful to walk with Athena through the valley of the shadow of (emotional) death and brought her into wholeness and restoration. Her modern-day Cinderella story is a testimony to the faithfulness of God. If you love Fierce Calling, please leave a review on Podchaser. Happy Thanksgiving, Friends! Have a Blessed One!!

Jude is writing in a time where Rome treated Christianity like Judaism...another distraction from full allegiance to Rome. But something happened over decades and decades against all odds the Church outlasted Rome. So what won people over to Jesus?
Psa 89:1 KJV – [[Maschil of Ethan the Ezrahite.]] I will sing of the mercies of the LORD for ever: with my mouth will I make known thy faithfulness to all generations. Psa 89:2 KJV – For I have said, Mercy shall be built up for ever: thy faithfulness shalt thou establish in the very […]
dadAWESOME We're on a mission to add LIFE to the dad life. We're passionate about helping dads live fully alive as they lead their kids to God's awesomeness. | YouTube | Instagram | Facebook | Twitter Jeff Zaugg Jeff and Michelle Zaugg celebrated 15 years of marriage last summer. They currently live in a 37 foot RV traveling across the United States with their 4 young daughters. After 10-years of entrepreneurial non-profit ministry leadership, Jeff served as a pastor at Substance Church in the Twin Cities for the past 7 years. In Fall 2020 Jeff took the leap and went full-time fatherhood ministry. He is the founder and lead cheerleader at dadAWESOME & FATHERS FOR THE FATHERLESS. When he's not wrestling or playing hide and seek with his daughters, you might find Jeff out for a bike ride, making a pour over coffee, sitting by a fire with his wife or challenging some friends to a game of Spikeball. Show Notes: 1:23 - "When I say become dadAWESOME, it's never been about an arrival or I am dadAWESOME. You're not, I'm more dadAWESOME than you are anything like that. It's a journey of focus and intentionality of saying, I'm going to be dadAWESOME for my kids and I'm becoming. It's a never ending journey of becoming that will continue till we reach heaven, because even as a great grandfather, someday I'm still going to be becoming dadAWESOME. And I think focus matters. Focus matters on this journey. 2:28 - "A look BACK. This thing started with an idea of, what if we help encourage intentional fatherhood? 6:03 - A look FORWARD 6:12 - GOALS: Keep cheering on intentional fatherhood. Keep seeking wisdom, both practical ideas and high level perspectives around intentional fatherhood through interviews on the podcast Keep rallying fathers to train together to do a hard thing on behalf of the fatherless Keep growing partnerships with other like hearted organizations so that we can resource dads further with books and retreats and other things that we're not going to do immediately 6:49 - "My prayer is that we would awaken a generation of dads that would realize the fact that they have a Heavenly Father who wants to father them. I believe that many of us dads are living as if we were fatherless, so we're accidentally passing on pain to our kids, were passing on hurts to our kids because all of us have imperfect fathers... none of us are perfect fathers. None of us had perfect fathers, but were accidentally, I believe, living as if we were fatherless. When we have a Heavenly Father who wants to bring freedom and healing so that we can pass on LIFE and we can pass on JOY and PEACE and LOVE to our kids, not pain to our kids. So that's I look forward. I'm more passionate than ever." 8:01 - "My prayer is that every interaction (from dadAWESOME) would just be a nudge in the direction of treasuring the role of being a dad. It is such a gift that we get to be dads. It's such a gift and we've been entrusted these treasures, our kids. And that's my main prayers that any time you interact with dadAWESOME in any way that it would nudge you in that direction of seeing this as a gift from God that we get to be dads." 8:57 - IDEA #1 = "I think God wants me to laugh more often with my kids" 9:52 - Acts 8:8 says. And there was great joy in that city 10:21 - "May your homes be known as a place that there was great joy found in that home where kids think back about all these years and their dad and say there was great joy that just radiated from my dad. His eyes shined as he belly laughed." 10:44 - IDEA #2 = RV Story - the first 48 hours 14:05 - "I want to encourage you guys that stuck does not mean you're outside of God's will. Stuck does not mean you're going to stay stuck. Stuck does not mean that you messed something up. Stuck does not mean that you're inadequate. Stuck does not mean that you're unloved. Stuck does not mean it's easy. It's stuck is a perfect setup for the John 10:10 the thief comes to steal, kill and destroy. He wants to do that in your fatherhood journey your dad life. He wants to steal kill destroys often as possible" 14:48 - "You have a Heavenly Father who is for you and is known. He is famous throughout the history of the world for getting stuck people unstuck." Exodus 14:13 "Moses answered the people, “Do not be afraid. Stand firm and you will see the deliverance the LORD will bring you today." 15:34 - "I'm a dad who has what it takes. I am dadAWESOME. You are dadAWESOME. Do not think that being stuck means that you don't have what it takes because God is fathering you. He's your Heavenly Father and he has gifted you your kids and he's like, Treasure those gifts" 16:08 - A speedboat mentality or a sailboat mentality 18:16 - "When we're feeling stuck, think sailboat, not speedboat. What if the wind is just not blowing? What if this is the time to learn and to be humble and to say, what can I take away from this versus a pointing at all the things that are wrong? What can I experience now that will help me be the dad that my kids need me to be?" 19:05 - "There are 40 people who have given to help finance some of the budget. This last year, about half of the budget was financed through 40 families. And and if some of you guys want to join that team to help fuel this movement www.dadawesome.org/give Episode Links: FATHERS FOR THE FATHERLESS Make a Donation to dadAWESOME Join the dadAWESOME Prayer Team Conversation Transcript Coming Soon!

Fruit of the Spirit Part 4: Faithfulness By Bill Corley Original Air Date: 2021.11.14 Many of us likely have a bowl of fruit in our kitchen…filled with apples, oranges, bananas, grapes and other delicious produce. Fruit doesn't only taste good but it is good for us providing important nutrients to keep us healthy. So what is fruit of the Spirit? It's not found in a bowl on the kitchen counter but can hopefully be found in every person who is a follower of Christ! Fruit of the Holy Spirit is the result and evidence of the presence of God's Spirit in the life of a believer. As Christians we now have qualities or traits that reflect God's nature and are meant to show the world who God is. The Bible describes fruit of the Spirit this way: But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law. Galatians 5:22-23. It is the desire for all Christians to practice each one of these traits in daily life with all people – but it isn't always so easy! Join us as we explore and learn about each fruit God gives and how to apply it in a practical way in every situation and relationship. If you have any questions, please contact us at (760) 384-3333, or text us at (760) 301-4840.
In this PODCAST, we are going to consider together the answer to one of the most commonly asked questions, at least as far as people have asked me. The implications of the answer are—to say the least—staggering in their significant, for each of us. You are truly in for a treat. Thank you for listening, and for sharing this message!!! Please remember that depending upon your web browser and connection speed, it may take up to 60 seconds for this podcast to begin to play. God bless you richly as you listen.
What have you happened upon? Stumbled into? Ended up? Is it possible that God is hiding in that circumstance? Pastor Jason Jackson continues our sermon series “The Outsider: Circumstances, Leftovers & The Faithfulness of God”. Could God be mysteriously present - waiting to be found?
A series on King David: Part 3 of 4 David sinned when he wasn't doing what he was supposed to be doing; when he had pulled back from God's calling. We have to be careful of comfort and of being distracted, because it leads to a place of being unfaithful. Instead, we have to keep moving forward in God's will, which can regularly take us to less comfortable places. We're called to lay down our lives—to endure the crosses of life and get to heaven. It's not easy… but God's faithfulness far outweighs our unfaithfulness. Remember: there are certain things the Lord does that he doesn't take back, like free will. The same is true with anointings. Keep choosing to do what you're supposed to be doing, and be faithful to the Father who is always faithful to you.
