Being a place of refuge means that as believers, we are resorting to compassion over judgement.

Prophecies are Weapons of Warfare
36:11
How do we use prophecy as weapons of warfare? Pastor Bill Johnson breaks down 1 Timothy 1 to encourage us that there are things that God promises us that are not guaranteed. Much of what you need in life will be brought to you, but most of what you want, you will have to go get. God is not the caretaker of an orphanage but a Father who delights in fulfillment of life.

Increase From Blessing
26:19
How do we maintain our focus on priorities in a season of blessing? Bill Johnson reminds us how we carry measures of God's glory from His blessings. Because of Stephen's example of intercession which led Paul into freedom and grace, peace spread throughout the region. We now get to stand in the gap for the salvation of others, and allow peace and comfort to spread over the world. The root systems of the earth are people, and we get to unveil the treasures of God through His people.

His Resurrection is My Resurrection

How do you reflect on the significance of Jesus' death and resurrection in your daily life? Bill Johnson reminds us that this powerful sacrifice is not a mere fact that we know to be saved, but a true, empowering reality that we live from everyday. Just as Jesus died trusting in His Good Father to send the Holy Spirit to resurrect Him, we get to enter a deeper level of surrender in the One who loves us and is eternally for us.

Abide and Listen
33:13
How do you perceive pruning? Bill Johnson brings perspective from John 15 that pruning is God's reward to growth, not His punishment.

One More Time
31:55
Have you ever been asked to do something one more time even though it didn't bring fruit previously? Eric Johnson encourages us through Luke 5 and Ephesians 2 to "go for it" one more time. You will gain insight into the precise timing of Jesus' wonders being displayed, revealing that nothing is impossible with God. Sometimes, all it takes is simple devotion and obedience to His voice.

Designed for His Glory
32:09
"God's Glory" is a phrase often heard in the church. But what does being designed to live in it really mean? Bill Johnson presents an opportunity for us to respond to God's invitation for recalibration. Jesus is our Great High Priest and we have the gift of abiding in His affection as a lifestyle. More happens in God's presence than a lifetime of works outside of it.

Trusting the Trustworthy One
36:04
What do you trust? Bill Johnson invites us to engage in our journey of trusting the Trustworthy One. Through three passages of scripture, we see how our trust reflects and connects us to who God is.
