Interpersonal Intervention
In today’s message from our Finding Favor series, Troy reminds us that God truly wants to hear our prayers. If we really pay attention, and if we have the faith to understand the difference our prayers make, we will spend a lot more time talking to God. Specifically, God sometimes changes another person’s mind when we pray for God’s favor in our lives. And God may use us to change someone else’s mind. We might be the answer to someone else’s prayers.

    Redemptive Poverty
    In today’s message from the Finding Favor series, Bud shares about those times in our lives when financial scarcity can actually be a sign of God’s blessing. God just might show us His favor by making us poorer for a season. The real question for all of us is, “Can we be blessed financially when God gives us wealth AND when He takes it away?"

    In Luke chapter 17, we read the account of Jesus healing 10 men who had leprosy. Jesus instructs them, “Go, show yourselves to the priests,” and as they went, they were cleansed. What’s interesting is that when Jesus sent them off to see the priests, these men were no better off than they had been ten minutes earlier, and yet, they headed off in search of the priests. God placed a demand on them (and on us today) to have faith, before anything at all has changed.

    God Will Provide
    If you've ever wondered whether God wants to intervene in your life to give you a blessing, just think of the most over-the-top, sitting-on-the-edge-of-his-seat-with-anticipation, ready-to-shower-you-with-amazing-gifts type of dad, then multiply that a thousand-fold.

    Intentional Obscurity
    Continuing in our Finding Favor series, based on the book of that name by Brian Jones, Troy discusses those times when we pray for God’s favor and it seems that the only way for Him to truly bless us is to place in total obscurity for a season. We will discover that obscurity is a sign of God’s favor, not a sign of His anger.

    Holy Discontent
    For this week’s message in our “Finding Favor” series, Troy shares about those times when God, in His favor, brings us to a place where we're angry at the messes we’ve made in our lives, and we finally throw up our hands and give up. We take real action because of this “Holy Discontent” that’s built up, where God helps us understand that something must change.

    Involuntary Perseverance
    What happens when we ask God for His favor, and instead of opening doors for us to explore new opportunities, He slams doors shut and says “no” to our requests. We are shocked because we thought we would be “blessed,” not realizing that God limiting our options can be one of His greatest blessings of all.

    God is Good, All the Time
    To introduce our new series based on the book, Finding Favor (by Brian Jones), Troy shares the truth that even in the midst of difficult circumstances, God gives us His perspective and uses scary, painful, counter-intuitive ways of bringing His best to us. God is always working for our good, even though we may not recognize it. God is good, all the time.

    In today’s message, Troy considers his growing anticipation and excitement for the next time his son returns home from college, and connects it to his growing excitement for the day he gets to see God’s Son, Jesus, when he’s in Heaven and in the presence of his Savior.

    In today’s message, Troy challenges us with the truth that although pain doesn’t feel good, it is good in the sense of its purpose and the positive change it can bring about. We should consider the idea that the pain we’re experiencing might be a blessing from God, and that our greatest pain can actually be God’s greatest blessing.
