Telling the Truth for Women

He Created Me

October 14, 2015
Our mere existence is evidence of God's love. When God creates, He creates in love and with purpose. He knows our days, our actions, our thoughts, before we even begin to exist.

In the first message of Jill Briscoe's 8-message series God’s Love for Us, she reminds us that our reaction to God's love for us, as displayed in our creation, ought to be like David's in the psalms – a reaction of praise and obedience.

Psalm 139

Whether we realize it or not, hostile forces are at work all around us. The devil is constantly trying to bring down as many people as he can. So, when we are struggling with depression, worry, low self-confidence, or fear, it's important to root ourselves in prayer. In this message, Jill discusses the battle between good and evil and gives us ways we can keep our prayer life strong - especially when we are in the midst of the fight. Based on 2 Kings 6:8-23, this is the final message in Jill's 8-message series, Prayer That Works.

When we pray, most of us spend a lot of time praying for ourselves, our family, and our friends. But did you know there is a lot more that God wants us to pray about? In this message, Jill uses the story of the little pot of oil to explain how we can let the Holy Spirit guide us in our prayer life so that God can work in our lives. Based on 2 Kings 4:1-7, this is the 6th message in Jill's 8-message series, Prayer That Works.

Have you ever felt like you're running out of prayers? Maybe you're disappointed with God because you prayed so hard and the prayer wasn't answered. Or maybe you've just run out of spiritual energy, or you're in a bad situation in your life and you don't know how you are going to get through it. In this message, Jill talks about what happens when we feel like we have no prayers left to give, and she offers tools for getting through it. Based on 1 Kings 19:11-18, this is the 5th message in Jill's 8-message series, Prayer That Works.

In the story of Elijah, God answers Elijah's prayer and sends fire from heaven down to Elijah's altar, in order to show the people of Israel that He is the one and only true God. This is just one example of how God answers prayer. In this message, Jill uses the analogy of an altar and describes twelve components that make up our relationship with God. It's a way of helping us understand how God can send "fire" down to our altars to answer our prayers. Based on 1 Kings 18:16-40, this is the 4th message in Jill's 8-message series, Prayer That Works.

When we think of the "heroes of the faith," we tend to focus on the tasks they accomplished and the people they encouraged - but the things they accomplished on their feet wouldn't have happened if they hadn't spent time on their knees in prayer. Even Elijah had to start somewhere! He was a shepherd in a small town who cultivated "the hidden life" of prayer before God called him to change his world. In this message, Jill walks us through Elijah's story, before the majestic displays of God's glory on Mount Carmel, to a life fueled by prayer and trust in the Lord. Based on 1 Kings 17 and James 5, this is the 2nd message in Jill's 8-message series, Prayer That Works.

How's your prayer life? Are your prayers childish, easily distracted, unfocused and lacking in passion, seeing prayer as a way to get what you want? Or are they heartfelt, fervent, and effective... prayer that works? Drawing from the prophet Elijah's fervent prayer life and his prayers for rain in a drought, Jill guides us in becoming great "pray-ers" and encourages us that effective prayer takes time and work but is completely worthwhile. Based on James 5:13-19, this is the 1st message in Jill's 8-message series, Prayer That Works.

One of the hardest things in life is facing rejection, especially when it comes from someone we love. We, like Leah, might keep striving, struggling, and manipulating to earn acceptance from our loved one. We may feel alone, but God sees and hears what we endure. In this message, Jill walks us through Leah's struggle with rejection and shows us the God who saw, heard, and loved Leah through it all. Based on Genesis 29-30, this is the 5th teaching in Jill Briscoe's 6-message series, Running on Empty.

We all get tired sometimes. And sometimes in our tiredness we get to a point where we, like Elijah, say "I’ve had enough, Lord." Where do we go once we've reached that point? How can we find refreshment and get moving again? In this message, Jill uses Elijah's story to teach us that God alone can refresh us just as He did for Elijah. Based on I Kings 19:1-18, this is the 4th teaching in Jill Briscoe's 6-message series, Running on Empty.

What does your daily schedule look like? Is it full of errands and events? Sometimes we become workaholics and worriers, filling our days with too many tasks and constant concerns about things we can't control rather than taking time to focus on the most important thing of all. In this message, Jill uses the example of Martha to show us instead how Jesus would want us to fill our time. Taken from Luke 10:38-42, this is the 3rd teaching in Jill Briscoe's 6-message series, Running on Empty.
