PP139 A Life Dream Shattered: A Personal Testimony

It’s one thing to say that God is enough; it’s another thing to live it. This past summer we worked through Psalm 25 and its teaching about the will of God. Now it’s time to hear one believer’s personal story of questioning God’s will when his life plan fell apart. Peter Thiessen joins us not to teach, but to tell. To tell a story of God’s faithfulness in the midst of defeat. This is the kind of testimony we desperately need to hear today.

Scriptures Referenced: Joh 17

PP129 God’s Will in Hard Places

“There are no safe paths in this part of the world,” said Gandalf to Bilbo… and he was right. Life is often hard. So how is God’s will operating in my life when I am in a hard place, a place of affliction and distress like David? And what if that hard place I find myself in is partly my own making? Find out in this final instalment of Mike & Matthew taking us through Psalm 25.


Scriptures Referenced:
Psa 25; Rom 8:28-29; Col 1:9-28; 1Pet 3:17

PP128 How Does God Guide Us?

In this third episode on Psalm 25, Mike opens up a can of worms, contrasting what he calls the blindfold view of the will of God with the guidebook view. Which view do you think is more biblical?

PP127 God Still Wants to Guide You

What happens if we have failed to follow God’s will in the past? Are we condemned to wander the spiritual wastelands for the rest of our days? No, not when our God is the God of faithful love, who “shows sinners the way.” Psalm 25 teaches us that failure is not final with God, that it is the character of God to lead his people, and that a humble heart will once again experience the guidance of God.


Scriptures Referenced:Psa 25; Isa 50:4-5; Isa 66:2

PP084 The Immeasurable Greatness of God’s Power to Keep You Safe

How great is God’s power to keep you safe? It is immeasurably great! After all, it is the same power that God exerted in raising Christ from the dead and seating him on the divine throne far above all rule and authority and power and dominion. At the end of Ephesians 1, Paul prays that the Holy Spirit would fill us with a pervasive sense of how safe we are in Christ! In this episode we also reflect on how the Christian faith tilts towards God, towards us, and towards grace.


Scriptures Referenced: Eph 1:19-23; Acts 19; 2Ki 6; Ps 8, 110

PP083 Two Things God Wants You to Know

D.A. Carson says, “just as we allow God’s words to reform our theology and our behaviour, let us let it also reform our praying.” The prison prayers of Paul, of which this passage in Ephesians is one, are a treasure trove of spiritual wealth, and a valuable lesson on how to pray. But the prayers reveal not only the spiritual maturity of Paul, but the desires of God’s heart for his people.


Scriptures Referenced: Eph 1:15-19; Eph 3:14-21; Php 1:3-11; 4:6; Col 1:3-9

PP082 Struck Rich! The Wonders of Our Inheritance

In Christ we have obtained an inheritance that is as secure as the Trinity. Before a genuine believer in Christ can lose his or her inheritance, God the Son would have to lose his inheritance, God the Father would have to lose control, and God the Holy Spirit would have to lose his seal. Grace has struck us eternally rich!

PP081 You Are Part of Something Big

Sometimes we feel very insignificant. But Scripture reminds us that Christ shed his blood for us, and that God’s grace has brought us into something very special, and very big – God’s plan for the ages in Christ. And God has revealed that plan to us because, if we understand it well, it will exalt the significance of our lives today.


Scriptures Referenced: Eph 1:7-10
