Today’s podcast speaks to the subject of competition. You know sometimes competition can be healthy and bring about positive results, but, more so than not, it seems the competitive spirit of mankind often delivers negative results and injury to others. Satan uses man’s competitive nature to bring about chaos and disorder to an already fallen and often hostile world. That is why we must always focus on God to seek His kingdom and righteousness first in all things. I hope you enjoy this week’s podcast, “Decrease to Increase,” which speaks to every believer’s need to decrease to self and increase in Christ.

“God never leaves you nor forsakes you.” I’ve heard that before. “Jesus will leave the 99 to come after you.” I’ve heard that one too. Meanwhile, fear creeps up when life hurls a season of loneliness our way, and poof! Churchy sayings hold as much weight as thin air. Believe it or not, God is cheering us on and inviting us to thrive amidst the loneliness. Yes, it’s weird and scary, but this emptiness is a safe space where you get to hear the God of everything speak the loudest. You’re safe because God is so good at owning goodness amidst our dank, confused, lonely seasons, and because of Him, you aren’t so by yourself.”
