The Hatred of the Feminine

Submitted by Michael Thompson on Thu, 06/27/2019 - 6:00am

The enemy comes at a woman’s identity, her good heart, her belovedness, her worth, and her strength. They attempt to capitalize on her pain, a time when we are most vulnerable, like sharks that smell blood in the water.

We are hated by the one who sees our image-bearing selves and fears our glory, knowing what we could become. Our enemy wants to control us. Diminish us. Silence us. Sideline us. He wants to take us out. STEAL. KILL. DESTROY. Nothing less.

What We Are Up Against

We all need a little encouragement now and then and we all need a little reminding once in a while. That is why we created The Wednesday Morning Rescue; the audio or video devotional offered as a part of Zoweh’s Daily Orientation.

Created for More

If our lives are just problems to be solved, then we have put ourselves in the center of a story that is too small for us.

We were created for a much larger role.

Igniting a Flame

When you were born again, you became a son of God, deeply loved. That’s your rock-solid identity. Circumstances shouldn’t alter it, and the enemy’s lies ought not to steal it. But knowing that truth in your head isn’t the same thing as experiencing it in your heart as a daily reality—as the thing that frees you, gives you joy, transforms you, gives you hope, sustains you in the hard times, and motivates everything you do.

There is One

Submitted by Michael Thompson on Tue, 06/18/2019 - 6:00am

My journey has led me to the major presupposition that there is One who knows how to put life together. There is One who desires for us to recover from our loss and “lostness” and who longs to help. The proposal I want to make, and the invitation I need to offer, is that the Life we are looking for ... the Life that can be found ... and the Life we need to have recovered is somehow, someway connected to God. This Life is so significant, dramatic and stunningly central to our searching that, when found, it will change everything.

Your Life is Epic

There is no passion to be found playing small – in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living.

Here With, Among, and Within Us

Submitted by Michael Thompson on Tue, 06/11/2019 - 6:00am

I have to confess, for most of my life I looked at the Spiritual Realm as somewhere far, far away. It was around the bend of the next galaxy, somewhere just beyond the rainbow or at some safe distance from what we could humanly measure. It seemed invisible and therefore out of touch and out of reach.
