During this episode of The Next Steps with Kevin Simmons we’ll deal with the topics of BIG and LITTLE. Often we neglect the BIG things in life and don’t understand how our little decisions impact them. This is expanded in detail in the teaching of Jesus in The Parable of the Talents in Matthew 25. Let’s learn together how to be faithful in the little things so that we can grow the big ones.
In this brief conversation, you’ll see that the way we approach God has a lot to do with how we experience His power! God answers all of our prayers, but some of His answers are “No” or “Not Now”. When those answers anger us, we need to check the position of our heart. During this episode, you’ll see how to position your heart to receive from God.
During this episode, you’ll see that HONOR positions us to experience the power of God in our lives. Honor is a heart issue, and our capacity to show honor will affect all of our lives. Not only does honor affect how we treat others, but it positions us to experience the miracle-working power of God!
During this conversation, Kevin takes the next steps with a few ideas that emerge out of Exodus chapter 17. In this passage, Moses uses his staff to strike a rock and provide clean drinking water and then lifts the staff high above his head to ensure the victory of his people over their attackers. In this episode, you’ll see that God wants to fight WITH you and if we’ll make the choice to do our part God has some great gifts in store for us.
During this conversation, Kevin reflects over a statement he made during last week’s message at Vortex Church called “The Journey”. During this short talk, you’ll see the connection between what we do and what we believe.
