Refreshing: Roots in the River

September 6, 2016
The Bible, in both the Old Testament and New Testament, "streams" with images of the Water of Life: storms and rain; streams in the desert; springs and wells; rivers, waterfalls, and watersheds; and the gentle dew of heaven. (Jeremiah 17:5-10)

Have you ever been with someone who seemed to have an inner joy even in the midst of a crisis? As Christians, we have the Holy Spirit living in our hearts, which brings incredible joy, and yet it's true that we can lapse into feeling depressed and hopeless. How do we keep our joy? (Isaiah 40 & Psalm 137)

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.

Many of us have times in our lives where we feel we've lost our spiritual effectiveness. This can happen in a number of ways. Maybe our disciplines have gone awry, our habits have slipped, our priorities changed, or we've let worry, pride or selfishness get in the way. In this message, Jill explains what happens when we lose our spiritual effectiveness, and she shares the steps we can take to retrieve it. Based on 2 Kings 6:1-7, this is the 7th 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.

It's easy to get discouraged when we're praying for a family member or a loved one and we just don't see God answering our prayers. In those times, we might tend to tell God how and when He should answer the prayer instead of having faith that His answer to our prayers might be in a way or at a time that is different than we imagine - but better! In this message, Jill gives us the example of Elijah and the widow and her son at Zarephath. Sharing her own personal stories, Jill encourages us to keep praying for our loved ones in any circumstances. Based on 1 Kings 17:7-24, this is the 3rd message in Jill's 8-message series, Prayer That Works. It is also featured in a 2-message special series titled, Thoughts from a Woman's Heart.

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.
