I’m Sorry, Does My Worship Bother You?

Incredible night of worship at Gateway’s Men’s Summit 2018

Slow Your Roll

Visiting a church while out of town many years ago, I was told to “Slow your roll,” during worship. It seemed they didn’t “like” when people raised their hands in praise.

Only the Holy Spirit fled from that place quicker than I did.

I’m in 2 Samuel this week and was reminded of that event while studying the 6th chapter. It details the newly crowned king of Israel, David’s response to criticism of his “roll.”

David may not have been perfect, but his heart for God sure was. Don’t allow others to define your worship, or your relationship with God. He created us to know us in a very unique and special way.

Roll on King David –

“…So I danced Before God, and will dishonor myself even more than this, and will be low in my own eyes.”

2 Samuel 6:21-22

The Warrior’s Marriage: Our 4 Deepest Needs

The Warrior’s Marriage: Our 4 Deepest Needs

1. Acceptance

“I am loved and accepted for who I am.” (Romans 8:35-39)
• Most people love us based on what they don’t know. God is the only one who
knows your every thought and will always love you no matter what.

2. Identity –

“I am special, unique and significant.” (Psalm 13)
• God planned every day of your life before you were born. He is the only one who
knows why you were created.

3. Security –

“I am safe and secure from harm.” (Psalm 9)
• When you understand God’s security it doesn’t matter what is going on around
you, because God’s security is in you.

4. Purpose –

“I have a significant purpose and there is a reason for my
life.” (Jeremiah 29:11-14)
• God’s purpose for your life will fulfill the desires of your heart. He won’t lead
you to do something that He hasn’t prepared you to do.

Join me each Monday night at Brick Breakers Men’s Ministry for The Warrior’s Marriage – 7:00pm (CST).

Fighting Fit and Fully Faithful

Years ago I’d stepped away from martial arts, but wanted to return.

I’d lost the physical conditioning that came with fighting. I kept telling myself that once I got back into shape, I’d return.

Well, the only way to get into karate shape, was through karate. I was looking for another path instead of committing to what brought me the fitness and the ability.

We do this with God all the time.

Making vows like “I’ll go back to church after I stop drinking,” or “Once my divorce is final,” or “I gotta get my life straight first.”

Insert your excuse here: _________________________________

This is satan giving us an impossible laundry list of things we can’t do without Christ. We’re looking for a way around Jesus. Focus on Christ, and He’ll take care of the rest.

Are You Where You Want To Be In Your Walk Today?

Where are you in your walk today?

The Holy Spirit was so strong this morning while sharing that “Today is the tomorrow we feared yesterday.”

And thanks be to God, here we are!

I know some of us are dragging our past failures around right this moment instead of claiming the victory God has already won.

Some may be thinking, “Yeah right, you don’t know what I have to deal with.”

You’re 100% right that I don’t know, but that’s not important. All that matters is God knows what’s going on, and He wants you to open up to Him about it.

God also wants you to know that He goes before you to make way no matter what you’re facing or just fearing.

This is my favorite part of the 23rd Psalms because no matter who, what, when, where or why I was facing troubles, this promise always reassured me that God had already been where I was going.

“You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies.”

Psalm 23:5

2 Year Old TV Mover? Not Gonna Happen, Right?

“Rak Chazak Amats”

I love this ancient Hebrew battle cry. It has launched many victories for God. It empowers you to be strong, hold your ground and never even consider the possibilities of defeat.

Can you imagine if we adopted the holy mindset of not considering the possibilities of defeat in our marriage, health, family, job, friendships and faith?

Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.”

Then Moses summoned Joshua and said to him in the presence of all Israel, “Be strong and courageous, for you must go with this people into the land that the Lord swore to their ancestors to give them, and you must divide it among them as their inheritance. The Lord himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.”

Deuteronomy 31:6-8

Not Impossible

I have an old black and white picture of me at about two years old. It was taken in 1967, and typical of that era, we had a giant console TV in the corner that easily weighed over one hundred pounds.

The story my mom told me was that I wanted it moved so I could play in that corner. Not only did I want it moved, but I was going to move it by myself. Easy right?

She said I got ahold of that big wooden box and grunted with every expectation that I’d lift it.

When my dad laughed and asked, “You need help?”

I said, “Nope.”

Balance

The balance between a child-like faith and a warrior’s spirit is an unbeatable combination. God encourages us to live in this balance.

God Really Doesn’t Like It Lukewarm

I love how direct God is with us.

I sat on the sideline for a season, but it wasn’t due to a lack of love for Christ, it was a fear of not knowing what to say to others about His redemptive love.

Bottom line; I didn’t feel qualified.

Thank God I learned He doesn’t call the qualified.

He qualifies the called.

No in between – All In!!!

“I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot. I could wish you were cold or hot. So then, because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will vomit you out of My mouth” 
Revelation 3:15-16

The Warrior’s Marriage: A Biblical Series On Marriage For Men

Men,

Married, getting married, hope to be married? God created us to desire connection. When it comes to intimacy, we men can find ourselves in a fix without realizing what happened.

Marriage On The Rock is bible-based information that has literally helped millions of people worldwide. Usually taught to couples, I wanted to gear this course created by MarriageToday to men.

Each Monday, I’m going Live on Brick Breakers starting May 14th at 7:00pm (CST.) There is no cost or sign ups.

Just tune in each week.

I’ll answer questions submitted during the class or something you DM me before. This is going to be a no-holds barred conversation with men about men for strengthening our roles as the head of the family.

Please share this with brothers who may be struggling or just want to make their relationships stronger.

Much Love/Much Respect,

Scott
