What To Do When God Seems to Dawdle
From the events surrounding the ‘late’ arrival of Jesus after the death of Lazarus, Lois Willis, from the teaching team of Hope City, analyses why Jesus would ever want to delay a miracle. Not only were people he loved upset by his seeming lack of care, He himself wept at both the loss of His friend and the tension caused by His delay.
This message will shed light on your delays and help you turn your disappointment into expectation.
Ps Jeff Lucas shares his salvation story through the lenses of his ‘confused’ 17year old self to express the power of prayer.
In the book of Acts the description of the Early Church was that they were ordinary people who were devoted. Their journey included authentic and real experiences of both victories and struggles.
This message helps you to understand and see the similarities and differences between Church as we know now and the Early Church. However, despite this the only thing that has stay the same through out the ages is the Love of God for his people. His devoted people.
If you see a sign saying ‘don’t walk on the grass’, we are all struck by a great temptation to walk on the grass! When God prompts you to do something, there’s always something in you that wants to say ‘no’. It’s that ‘no’ that needs breaking. Resistance comes in all forms from a subtle pulling back to public meltdown. This message by Tebo Mpanza, Hope City Birmingham Pastor, will help you speed into your God given future by taking your foot off the brake pedal. And we all have one.
To have a life of meaning is the primary driver of human souls. To do this, tables must turn, saying goodbyes must happen, storm clouds are ushered and reinventions begun. That’s why many choose to attempt to live a life of happiness only to discover that on either side of moments of happiness lies deep discontent. The more meaningful your life is, the more fulfilled you’ll become.
