The Father Heart Of God

Dave Harper (Sun, 19 Jun 2016)

On Father's Day, Dave spoke about the Father Heart of God.


When Jesus said 'I will not leave you as orphans' (john 14:18) what do you think he meant and how would he accomplish this?

Though we may well know the biblical truth about our relationship with God as Father we can often struggle with acceptance and approval issues. How can we deal with this??

Dave encouraged us that the Father brings hope to our heart and read the following encouragement
"Help emerged as I began to explore entering the silence, not in some rural idyll but a desert space where I might hang out with God and converse with him about who I was. It was within this silence I discovered I was deeply loved by God, had always been known by God, that God was more deeply embedded within me than I’d ever known. Slowly I stopped measuring myself against my views. I exchanged insecurity derived from my uncertain friendshipse for the security of knowing God. The restless anxious chatter in my head, while never stilled, lost its power to determine who and how I showed up in life. My inner anxious self was shattered and hope was birthed, a hope with which to wage war against the internal chatter that made me doubt myself, lose my confidence and constantly compared me to others."

Do you think you could do this more yourself?

Breaking the Power of Shame

Dave Harper (Sun, 15 Nov 2015)


Please listen to the talk on line if you missed it and want the background to these questions.

Justyn Georges has studied eastern shame cultures extensively and lived in the far east for many years. He says this:

'My biggest discovery while learning about honour-shame has been the depth of my own shame. I began researching the topic for ministry purposes—how can I reach “them”—but have realized it has immense personal application as well. But the depth of shame in every heart is simply a display for the magnificence of God’s honour'

What do you think he means when he says the depth of shame in our heart is an opportunity for the display of the magnificence of God's honour?

How difficult is it to talk about shame and take steps to bring it out in the open?

What are the steps to come out from under the shadow of shame?

Those who look to Him are radiant, and their faces shall never be ashamed Ps34:5
