The Voice Part 2 – Dave Gilpin

Express yourself.

Why did God ask Adam to name the animals? This would seem a pointless exercise until you remind yourself of the power of names. Names have an ability to fashion, form and frame both the present and the future. It’s happened throughout your lifetime with both positive and negative outcomes. Adam was practising on the animals what Jesus would do to the nature of Simon and the state of Lazarus- speak a new name over both creating powerful outcomes. And since we’re made in the image of God, we are called to rename ourselves, others and our cities with names of faith and hope that change things forever.

The Voice – Dave Gilpin

Calling your future out. 

Chaos marked the beginning of creation. Chaos always exists between what was and what is to come. To usher in what was to come, God spoke. He didn’t just think. He didn’t remain silent. The Word of God contains the power of God, yet the spoken word releases that power. Because the Word of God is ‘alive and active’, it’s born to be expressed. And when you express it, it never returns to heaven without accomplishing that for which it was sent.

Unboxing Possibility – Dave Gilpin

Right now you’re being unboxed. The box that held in your potential is being torn apart by unrest. To release your potential that releases all kinds of possibilities requires faith. And faith starts with a storm; a chaos and a sense of being out of control. Why? Because faith first let’s go of the old, the familiar, the usual and the worn. And that creates an uproar within us, in those who love us and in those who think they know us. To find oneself between the old and the new takes nerve. Here’s a life message to give you just that.

Chaos Theory – Dave Gilpin

Why does all hell seems to break loose soon after you get a word or a feeling that God is about to do a new thing in your world? It would appear to be the workings of an opposing force, yet the truth is that nothing natural or spiritual moves from one form of ‘order’ to a higher order without a season of chaos. 

We rarely understand this because we feel that God moves mostly through miraculous interventions, when he actually moves primarily through a process of birthing- and that’s so messy and awkward that we think something is intrinsically wrong. 

Nothing could be further from the truth. Chaos in your life right now isn’t for your destruction, it’s for your releasing- God is birthing something new and better in your world.

Blink – The Power of Thinking without Thinking

Almost every time God speaks to us, it’s accompanied not by a booming voice or lightning flash but by a flicker- a change of cabin pressure- a momentary or residual peace that settles on the underside of our emotions. Because righteousness, peace and joy are the three arbitrators of the Spirit, Dave Gilpin shows how following the trail of peace can lead you into the fullness of all God has for you!

Inklings: The Five Levels of Desire – Dave Gilpin

You inner desires are completely linked to the will of God for your future. If you delight in Him, the Bible says, He will grant you the desires of your heart. Yet you’ll never truly be able to find them or follow them if you’re driven by demand, fear and conformity. Press play to find out how to dig through the emotional layers to find the true, life-guiding passions that dwell beneath.

Don’t Judge Me – How to Survive in a World of Name Calling

In Matthews Gospel, 8 out of around 14 parables that Jesus gave were directly to do with judgement. We never mention it for the fear of offending. However- In this age of judgementalism where isms and phobias are thrown around both as missiles of judgment and weapons of mass bullying, Jesus parables take on a new meaning.

In the Parable of the Weeds, the owner of the field told the workers to let the wheat grow with the weeds and for them to not to even attempt to do any weeding along the way. He would do that at harvest time. He would exercise final judgement, not the workers. Jesus is telling us to be counter cultural- to spend no time judging or being judgemental about others, ourselves, our society and our world. He is the only person wise enough to make the right calls and at the right time. And until He does, we are to live with eyes of faith, not the voice of accusation.

Like | How to be liked more

Unless someone likes you, they won’t get to know you. If they don’t get to know you they can’t trust you. If they don’t trust you they won’t love you. If they don’t love you they won’t be able to see what you love AND will be held back from loving what you love. Like it or not, influence begins with being liked. Jesus grew up ‘in favour with God and in favour with man’. To be liked is to be favoured. To win the favour of others is where great dreams begin. Sometimes people just won’t like you and don’t like you. Sometimes you need to make unlikeable choices. Sometimes those that liked you will unlike you because of them. Sometimes you need to lay down your life. But the rest of the time, which is most of the time, we’re build bridges of ‘Like’ over which the Ubers of grace and truth will one day zoom.

Boss Baby – Dave Gilpin

There comes a time you just have to put your foot down and move from Cry Baby to Boss Baby. You need to move from belittling your world to bossing up your world! How? Jesus gave a parable about two men at midnight- one wanted sleep, the other wanted food. Food won over sleep as the spirit of ‘shameless audacity’ took over. It’s this spirit that’s all over this message. And it’s yours for the taking.

Slow is the New Perfect – Dave Gilpin

The Kingdom of God is like SLOW TV- it’s like 7 hours 23 minutes of Salmon fishing in Norway on NETFLIX. Even the analogy Jesus gave of seeds being planted is all SLOW SLOW SLOW. And that’s the same for every one AND every church everywhere. We grow slow, church goes slow and we all go slow even when we think we’re all going fast.

Almost every bad leadership decision happens by ditching slow and trying to speed things up through raising people up far too early, raising completely the wrong people up, being too authoritative, giving stern ultimatums and creating a fear driven environment…. all understandable, yet completely devastating by sending the church backwards instead of leading it forwards.

WHY IS IT ALL SO SLOW? Because SLOW AND STEADY beats FAST AND ERATIC every time. SLOW AND THOUGHTFUL decisions are always better than TOO FAST AND EMOTIONAL decisions. SLOW AND PERMANENT change is better that QUICK THEN REVERSIBLE change.

BUILD SLOW PEOPLE THAT KEEP MOVING IN WINTER, NEVER STOP SOWING IN AUTUMN, NEVER PULL UP IN SUMMER AND NEVER CEASE TO GROW IN SPRING. For within them lies the secret of the Kingdom of God. The Tortoise beats the Hare every time.

If you’re continually thinking ‘why is God so late at coming through?’ think again. His timing is actually perfect. It’s just that He knows more than you. That’s all. YOU WANT THINGS FASTER? Love SLOW a little bit more.

You Don’t Know You – Dave Gilpin

Becoming conscious of the deep unconscious part of your being is the start of everything. It’s the truest you, the essential you, the vital you. Paul calls it your inner man that sits below your soul and below your heart. So he directs all of his prayers in Ephesians to that place. This message is so profound for all looking for a better stronger, more victorious life. Listen now to find out more.

Phew! It’s Only Thoughtlessness

You’re probably still waiting for that return text, that return gift and that return invite to that party. You’ve probably already decided that they are a rude, self-seeking person who has thoroughly undermined your worth and is seriously vindictive and dismissive. Yet the truth is they probably forgot. They’re thoughtless. That’s all. When Jesus said his last words in Matthew 28, he closed with a nod to this. He said that, ‘I’m with you even to the end of the age.’ In other words, I won’t forget you like others do. This podcast is what you need to survive in a world that would lose its head if it wasn’t screwed on.

Perfectionism

You’re either really really tidy or really really messy!! You either pray a lot or don’t pray at all; and when you do pray, your first words aren’t ‘praise you’ they’re ‘I’m sorry’. These are all indications that you may be carrying a virus called Perfectionism. It’s a form of self harm that afflicts 90% of the population. It results in huge guilt, self rejection, an inability to raise a team and a propensity to quit and quit for good.

God’s vision for you is not perfection. It’s less than that. It’s excellence. Recorded at Hope City Sheffield, this message will both deliver you and reset you for an easier, more productive future.

Optical – Dave Gilpin

God isn’t looking for you to be perfect so that he can love you. He’s not asking you to complete a tick list or fulfil a catalogue of requirements for you to enter His Kingdom. The central message of the gospel is that Christ comes to where we are. He’s just looking for you, to wear His grace and accept His gift of life.

Silverdale Road: Time and chance happen to everyone

More British sporting stars have been created on this one street than any other street in England. Why? Because those who lived there were custodians of an unusual set of circumstances and opportunities. People think that talent is king, yet Silverdale Road tells us a different story. And this story could be yours…. if you allow it to be.

Optical: A Vision Called You

 

When  Dave Gilpin drove his new car into a car wash he forgot who he actually was for a moment. He found himself hitting his own forehead twice with the palm of his hand in front of the car wash employee because he didn’t do what he instructed him to do. What happened next was a revelation. This is that revelation…….it’s a vision of you.

Dangerous Liaisons

Our greatest danger is that we stop being dangerous and play life safe. Knowing that Jesus reigns over everything changes everything. Faith exists only in the thin blue line between hope and danger. When Peter stepped out of the boat, he confronted the possibility of drowning with the possibility of defying gravity. He entered the thin blue line with only one word from God. It’s there that miracles are made.
