Today’s Readings from the Plan:  Judges 8, Acts 11, Jeremiah 21, Mark 7

Focus Passage: Acts 12:711 ESV

Read the Text, Meditate on it, Pray Through It, & Contemplate the Impact

“And behold, an angel of the Lord stood next to him, and a light shone in the cell. He struck Peter on the side and woke him, saying, “Get up quickly.” And the chains fell off his hands. And the angel said to him, “Dress yourself and put on your sandals.” And he did so. And he said to him, “Wrap your cloak around you and follow me.” And he went out and followed him. He did not know that what was being done by the angel was real, but thought he was seeing a vision. When they had passed the first and the second guard, they came to the iron gate leading into the city. It opened for them of its own accord, and they went out and went along one street, and immediately the angel left him. When Peter came to himself, he said, “Now I am sure that the Lord has sent his angel and rescued me from the hand of Herod and from all that the Jewish people were expecting.””

Bible Focus Verse: You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; you anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows, (Psalm 23:5)

Summary: This episode looks at the opposition and spiritual warfare we can face when stepping into our God-given callings. It examines common fears like failure, rejection, inadequacy and how the enemy uses these to derail us. The host shares truths from Psalm 23 and practical strategies for countering the opposing forces and moving forward with confidence.

Key Points:

God has prepared a table of provision for us, even in the presence of enemies/opposition
Common opposing fears: failure, rejection, criticism, inadequacy
Truths to counter opposition: God’s presence, divine provision, peace, assurance of success, identity in Christ
Strategies: Stay grounded in Scripture, regular prayer, celebrate small wins, set boundaries, seek community

Takeaway: Don’t allow fear, doubt or the enemy’s tactics to take a seat at the table God has prepared for you. Remain focused on God’s assurances as you boldly move into your calling.

Call to Action: Reflect on areas you’re giving the enemy a foothold. Take practical steps to reclaim your space and God’s peace/confidence.

Watch Episode: 

Daily Scripture Readings: If you’re reading along with us, today’s McCheyne Reading Plan passages are:

Deuteronomy 10
Psalm 98
Isaiah 38
Revelation 8

Take 15-20 minutes to read these chapters, then come back and join me.

Scripture Reading: Genesis 3:8 (ESV) And they heard the sound of the Lord God walking in the garden in the cool[a] of the day, and the man and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the Lord God among the trees of the garden.

Key Points:

God created the Garden of Eden as a place of perfect harmony and communion with Him
Adam and Eve walked with God in intimacy and trust, not just gaining knowledge
The temptation was to seek knowledge over relationship/intimacy with God
Today, we can feel spiritually dry despite having access to immense biblical knowledge
Our primary calling is to walk intimately with God, not just know about Him
Practical tips for intimacy: daily quiet times, journaling, nature walks, sabbath rest, community

Takeaway: “It’s not about what you know, but who you’re with. The vibrant life we long for is found in intimacy with Jesus, not just knowledge accumulation.”
