    When You Think You Know Better Than God

    Sometimes when we cook, we feel like adding things to the recipe. Except this doesn't work when we are following God's plan. There is no substitute for obedience and Saul thinks he can change his situation by using methods outside of God. Things go about as well as you'd expect.

    When You Misuse Your Influence
    Posted by Brent Wood
    Who are you influencing? We all are impacting the world around us, and even if it's just one or two people at a time, influence moves from person to person. In this podcast, we examine the number of ways leaders relinquish their influence over other people, and we learn how to use our influence for good and for God.

    Saul is in crisis mode, but instead of responding like the leader he's been chosen to be, he allows his fear to paralyze him. When we are paralyzed by fear, we forfeit hope, and the grip we have on hope is proportional to the grip we have on faith. Saul has no faith in God and is stuck underneath a pomegranate tree.

    Looking for things to go your way this week? We sometimes turn to little rituals like a lucky penny, or rabbit's foot, or a special pair of socks. This week in the life of Saul, Saul comes to a place where he doesn't trust God's timing and turns to things that can't help him.

    Things are going pretty well for Saul: he has a great life, lots of success, and is chosen by God to be King. But that's when things start to go wrong for him. As we dive headfirst into the story of King Saul, we come to the conclusion that it just maybe might not be about us after all.

    When Life is Boring and Routine
    Posted by Brent Wood
    There might not be any way around our boredom and routine we can get stuck in, but reporting for duty is exactly what God commands us to. We finish this Christmas thinking, not about excitement and anticipation, but the routine we all feel when God isn't working.

    The truth is, not many of us want to be Mary. There are many reasons we feel anxiety in our lives today, especially around Christmas, but Mary had plenty of reasons, too. From Luke 1:26-38 we learn how to step into the tension of apprehension.

    Things don't always go as we plan them, but this is exactly what happened in the Christmas Story. We may not have asked for it, but God chose it when it was good for His will and plan. In Galatians 4:4-5 we learn how unexpected circumstances can lead to unexpected opportunities.

    Have you noticed how downright mean we're becoming to the people around us? Polls tell us 75% of Americans believe civility is in decline. The Bible speaks of a solution in Ephesians 4:29-32. We can learn to take responsibility for the things we say and do to each other without hiding behind an anonymous message board.
