145 What I Learned from Bill Johnson, Kris Vallotton and Danny Silk
Next week a moving truck is arriving to pack up our 'stuff' and then we begin the drive from California to Pennsylvania. There are a lot of goodbyes and see-you-later's happening (and a few leaky eyes). In the midst of this time I have taken some moments to reflect on what I have learned from my time here. I was privileged to work directly with Danny Silk, then Kris Vallotton and through both of them connect and receive personal feedback from Bill Johnson. So what did I learn that you will never read in a book? Here's some inside stories... Danny silk - Trust people more than they trust themselves - Relationship is more important than being right - The level of trust is the level of connection and means EVERYTHING when you are trying to lead people they don't want to go: tissue paper vs. leather 'connection' - Two new words for my vocabulary: "What do you need to feel from me in order to thrive?" - Keep walking and stay close: when you have someone in disagreement or conflict - Why do you trust me? Because you recognized the culture and protected it... Best book : Culture of Honor - How to sustain a supernatural environment Kris Vallotton - Confrontation and courage to go after what God has spoken. - Humility and confrontation: "You are a father in the house, you carry the culture better than anyone I know, including me and I'm sorry for any pain I caused you." - Then WE made a mistake story - The value of disagreement pushing back on ideas, challenging to get a bigger perspective - Texting every few weeks when our daughter was going through crazy physical asking how she was doing and praying for us Best book: Supernatural Ways of Royalty - Discovering your rights and privileges of being a son or daughter of God Bill Johnson - Unwavering resolve to pursue Jesus and His kingdom on earth above all else. That friendship with God is entirely possible and accessible for all and is simple - surrender and trust and keeping your eyes on the Father - Family above everything : Earl Johnson leaving his own annual conference to go watch Bob play basketball... - Courage under fire: Enduring Faith - the message week recorded the before and the week after Bill's father died of cancer. Also, watching Bill now navigate his own wife battling cancer and yet Bill is on fire for the Kingdom of God and miracles. - Love for word of God and voice of God above all else - honors people who disagree including writing them a check... Early on at Bethel turning to Beni saying 'this is it...' - Passion for the Kingdom - I've had this as a philosophy for years but haven't known how to do it - you are doing it. Best book: Strengthen Yourself in the Lord - How to release the hidden power of God in your life We came here with a career and left with a story We came here with cracks in our foundation and left knowing if God is for me then no other opinion matters We came here with 12 suitcases and leave with a moving truck We came here with four children under the age of 8 and leave with four young adults who are more confident and secure in themselves and God than I was We came here out of obedience, we leave here out of vision and love We came here as a fat caterpillar and leave as a butterfly, having broken out of the cocoon I'm sad. I'm excited. I'm grateful. Thank you Danny and Sheri, Kris and Kathy, Bill and Beni: my life in Christ and His Kingdom is stronger and more secure AND more fruitful because of you. The things that I heard from you among many witnesses, I have committed these to faithful men and women who are now teaching others also!

144 How to Walk the In-Between
Here's an update to our journey expanding from California to Pennsylvania. Here's what we are learning in how to walk the in-between - when you can't stay where you are but there is no clear path forward and all you can see is the step in front of you. We are now three weeks away from when we have to be out of our house that has sold. We don't have a house to move to... yet. Every time we look to 'just find something,' we hear God say "don't settle" and "time is on your side." So we are stuck in the middle. Or are we? What if there is something for us in the middle? What if we have to let go before God can put in place what's next? So what are the practical things we are doing and learning for the in-between 1. Anchor in what God said and did => Remember the testimony => Fight with the words spoken to you: Did God really say? YES HE DID! => Re-write what He said daily if necessary => Ask for confirmation and clarity 2. Take a step => ACT on what He has said: ADVANCE into the 'middle', let go CONTROL, TRUST His Timing and that He makes your way perfect => Little step is OK.... actually it is wise => Keep big picture reference points: wise counsel, long term view 3. Manage the 'shakes' => Do something physical, daily => Keep your focus on others - who could you encourage? => Stay present, protect the priorities => Listen daily - live by the WORD => Stay connected, prioritize and protect the relationships => LISTEN TO SONG HERE - https://youtu.be/QXTvm72lSvo If you haven't done so already, stay connected with Heaven in Business by following the testimonies we post on Facebook.com/Heaveninbusiness, meeting in person at an upcoming event (HeaveninBusiness.com), or joining the community and weekly live call.

141 How to UN-Stuck your head when you don’t understand
We just had the craziest week ever! We were on the east coast looking (unsuccessfully) for house. We then had an executive retreat with 30 business leaders (outstanding!). In the middle our daughter took herself to the ER with chest pain (she's now ok). We have another daughter navigating a student tragedy on her college campus. Then our flight home got delayed overnight. Then they dropped me off the next flight so Janine would have gone home alone and somehow I was flying ANOTHER day later (It's ok we managed to sort it out). Needless to say, it was an emotional and spiritual rollercoaster. In the middle, our youngest (15yr old) daughter sent us a text: "Read Matthew 16 9 to 12" So we did. Actually, the same story is in Mark 8:17-18 in more detail. It's the story of the disciples who are with Jesus on a boat and he talks about the leaven of the pharisees and of Herod. The disciples are clueless (again) and wonder whether He is messing with them because they forgot to bring lunch. Jesus challenges them with these questions: 1. Why do you reason amongst yourselves? (stuck in your head - mind) 2. Do you not perceive? (understand with your heart - spirit) 3. Is your heart still hardened? (clueless to what is really going on and who you are with) Basically the unspoken answer is "YES I AM STUCK IN MY HEAD TRYING TO WORK THIS OUT AND I DON'T UNDERSTAND AND I GUESS MY HEART IS HARD..." "So, please help me!" Here's the good news: God will give you a new heart if you simply ask... "Create in me a clean heart Oh God, and renew a right spirit within me." Psalm 51:10 "I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit with you; I will take the heart of stone out of your flesh and give you a heart of flesh." Ezekiel 36:26 Then, how do you STAY UNstuck? How do you KEEP a tender heart? How do you stay in faith rather than running circles in your head (logic and reason)? Here's the deal - Jesus lays it out real simple: 1. What do/did you see? What do you see God doing in you, around you, through you? What do you see happening? Lean into it. 2. What do/did you hear? What do you hear God saying? Are you doing that? How are you keeping His Voice louder than all the other noises? 3. What do you remember? Even when we can't see or hear anything, we can ALWAYS remember. What has God done in the past that you need to remember? How has he led or provided or protected you?

140 How to Fight for Peace in Uncertainty
What do you do when you have a plan that isn't going according to plan??!! Right now we are in Pennsylvania for the second time this month looking for a home for when we move in June. The deadline is fast approaching. We have yet to sell our California home. We have yet to find a suitable home here. We hear God say 'don't settle' (don't lower our expectations) and 'trust me.' So how do you practically trust God in the midst of shortening timeframes? How do you navigate expectations? How do you avoid getting irritable, anxious, uptight and discouraged? Here's my routine that is (mostly) working! First I like to anchor myself in the DAILY word of God. If I'm not sure where to start, I always defer to the Proverb that matches the date. I read until I find myself in the words. Or something I read resonates within me, even if my head doesn't understand. Here's the process for now: Today I read in Proverbs 18:10 (TPT) "The character of God is a tower of strength (homonym – bed of flowers), for the lovers of God delight to run into His heart and be exalted on high." This combines with what I read the day before in Psalm 17:4-6 (TPT): "Following your word has kept me from wrong. Your ways have molded my footsteps, keeping me from going down the paths of the violent. MY STEPS FOLLOW IN THE TRACKS OF YOUR CHARIOT WHEELS, ALWAYS STAYING IN THEIR PATH, NEVER STRAYING FROM YOUR WAY. You will answer me God; I know you always will. Hear my words like you always do as you listen to my every prayer." I write down the scripture in my journal then reflect on my situation and what the scripture means: We are fighting for peace and direction in transition and uncertainty. God’s word and ways are my anchor, strength, hiding place, protection and safety – unmoving, impenetrable, bulletproof, fixed and firm… a shield of defense… resolute – tense and high adrenalin but strong and stable. AND at the same time (or other side of the coin), I can step back from the front line decision making and rest in His character and nature and ways that are a bed of flowers. Like grandmothers garden… beautiful, comfort, rest, breath-in refreshing oasis of peace… where the only decision I have to make is whether Grandma buys me one or two pieces of battered fish for lunch 😊 So what will I do = Action. Today I do BOTH. Meditating on his character and ways that are the tracks that I walk in – protection and comfort; following His way to His victory. AS I WALK I anchor my heart in His character and He will keep me from wrong decisions or wrong timing. I trust He will answer me. So we go to look at houses… not knowing any of these are the right one or whether our offer would be accepted or whether our house would sell in time. Nevertheless I keep following in the tracks of His chariot wheels. I follow the Good Shepherd. Stay tuned! If this is an encouragement to you please post a review on Apple Podcasts and share the feedback.

139 So Valuable It’s FREE!
You may think I'm weird, but I have ALWAYS had a sense that there is more to life than following a set of rules or principles or fulfilling some form of Christian religious obligation. I believe that it is truly possible to walk in friendship the Creator of the Universe and this should be a daily experience (for everyone) in ALL of life... not just an event or 'quiet-time.' The last decade I've been devoted to pursuing this partnership with God in all of life even more. We call it Heaven in Business. And the fruit has started to multiply - people all over the world partnering with God, following His voice, and getting wisdom and insight for day to day decisions. We have recorded over 700 testimonies ourselves but there truly are too many to count. For the last two years I've gone deeper into what are the keys to live this out on a consistent basis. Everything points back to a clearer understanding of the Kingdom of God and my relationship with the King. This is called seeking FIRST His Kingdom, His way (see Matthew 6:33). Ive been reading Myles Munro and Jack Taylor and E.Stanley Jones and Bill Johnson. I've rubbed shoulders with national faith-centered business leaders and refined the language and learning. And now we are ready to give it to you. Why is it free? Because I received it for free - freely received, freely give. I want you to experience what I am experiencing. More so, I am RELYING on you to succeed! I will never be all I am called to be without you stepping into who you were born to be. You carry an aspect of the nature of God that all creation is longing for. So don't wait, jump in! Here's how I can help you on your journey... I'm doing a one hour live call, daily, for the first week of May. Join me. I will give you the best keys I know to access and activate the Kingdom of God in your workplace.

138 Why on Earth Would You Do THAT???
God's way sometimes looks foolish. In other words, His way is not always the best strategy... from a human perspective. You can try to reason your way around it and you will always come up short. Bottom line is will you be led by the Spirit of God or will you settle for human wisdom? What is the best strategy? We are in Pennsylvania looking for a house for our family (see Episode 127: Hearing God and Expanding to the East Coast). We have been here for week. We thought we would have sold our California house and be in a position to make a strong offer over here. But it hasn't worked like we expected. We haven't yet sold our house. And we haven't yet found a house that we all love over here. That delay and disappointment and failed expectation reveals where my trust and faith really lie. The level of stress and irritability and feeling out-of-control would indicate that my faith is being invited to grow! (That's putting it nicely). It also pushes on why on earth would we leave the 'best place on earth'? Why would we leave our dream house? Couldn't we just stay there and travel over here...? Surely we could make some arrangement? Think of all the uncertainty and expense and change in relationships and risk and potential loss and failure... Surely it would be a better strategy to keep our base in Redding, CA and not Pennsylvania, 3,000 miles east? Yes that would be the easier strategy right now. Then I have what God said. You are seeing things merely from a human point of view, not from God’s. John 16:23 This foolish plan of God is wiser than the wisest of human plans, and God’s weakness is stronger than the greatest of human strength. 1 Corinthians 1:25 The cross NEVER looked easy. Surrender and trust NEVER look easy. But will I trust Him even when I can't see it working? I will. So, HOW do you do that??? 1. Remember He is your GOOD Shepherd. Psalm 23. He can lead better than you know how to follow. You are clueless compared to what He knows about what's best for you. 2. Remember the testimony. Reflect on and repeat to yourself the stories of God leading and providing in the past. 3. Don't let your heart get troubled. John 14:1 This is hard when surrounded by uncertainty. I need to keep declaring and praying and feeding myself with His voice, otherwise i do get troubled. Sometimes I need to phone a friend and ask them to pray. Sometimes I need to just go for a run and get some of the physical pent-up-energy released. Sometimes I need to put on worship music... the kind that is not passive or depressing! Sometimes I just need to stand still and realize I control a lot less of my life than I think. So, when the Son of Man comes searching will He find FAITH?

134 In the room where it happened...
Last week I was IN THE ROOM where some incredible things happened. It was our annual Heaven in Business conference and the theme was Kingdom Business. Here's a report that will GREATLY encourage you and release hope in midst of your world. Listen and you will hear: - Business multiplication 120% ($10M) in two weeks - 90+minute budgeting process completed in TWO minutes - Breast cancer disappears and is verified by doctor - Kingdom of God is advancing at work and YOU are invited to grab hold of it (find out more Kingdominbusiness.org) 1. Salvation and Miracles Previous attendees are sending their employees to conferences. We didn't know they were unsaved. One attendee from Alaska was so impacted by the love and power of God she was led to Jesus Thursday night by her fellow attendees. One speaker had a dream Thursday night that he and I were embracing Bill and Beni and praying for their health. He DID NOT KNOW what is happening with Beni. As he shared this with me a 22yr old woman walked in with her parents asking to attend one day. Turns out she is brand new oncology nurse and one week ago diagnosed with aggressive form of breast cancer. We got ALL in room with cancer to stand and surrounded them and prayed for healing. WHILE WE WERE PRAYING one man received phone call from doctor saying he was all clear. Many were greatly impacted. Later report the 22yr old went to healing rooms Saturday and by end of day lumps were reduced in size and pain gone. She went back to doctor the following Tuesday and the report is attached. NO SUSPICIOUS MASSES, NO ABNORMALITY, NO MALIGNANCY. 2. Guests We had 215 guests plus our team and speakers. Although we had personally had contact with many of them through Heaven in Business travel and online activity, this was the FIRST time to Redding for about three quarters of them. We had people from east coast to west coast of USA plus Canada, Mexico, Puerto Rico, Germany, Philippines, Indonesia, Austria, England.... We got the entire group to pray multiple times for Ukraine/Russia conflict. Turned out there were a number of Ukrainians and Russians in the room (US residents) so we surrounded them. One married couple was Ukraine husband and Russian wife who had not been able to have children. Powerful prayer moment. 12 local businesses came in to the conference on Friday and we had the guests activated to pray for them. Excellent reports. 3. Immediate Application. The testimonies we are hearing back are SUPER encouraging. Here's a couple emails: "I cant thank you enough for facilitating the recent Heaven in Business conference. We really didn't know what to expect but we were so filled up!!! I have been a Christian my whole life 48 years and somehow the revelation of Kingdom came alive in a whole new way!! I am so excited to know, understand and explore the kingdom of God on earth!!! I was physically healed during conference which is a side note. Monday morning at 7 am we laid hands on my employee and God healed him instantly! He was so shocked. It was a conformation we are doing the right thing and more to come. I felt super compelled to start a prayer meeting immediately. We had our first one today and there was 9 of us. I was so blessed I feel elated. I am so excited for the fire that was started and its just the beginning. Pray for us as we continue to pray and look for opportunities to bless our clients and business around us." "Last week in Redding at the HIB conference was life-changing for me and my wife. A time we will never forget and my wife was totally healed (back/knee)! I’ve been to every Heaven in Business Redding main conference since January 2018: this conference was a qualitative shift that reflects the season that we are in right now. I am living, thinking, acting differently and seeing an entirely different level of breakthrough because of the transformation and impartation that I received at this conference this year. Something very special is happening here. We are grateful to be working in the Family Office with all of you!" One guests' Takeaways: This conference wasn’t about me, or you, it was about US, the royal members of the Kingdom of God. We have immense authority in prayer within business to further the Father’s purposes our lives. It should be no less a strategic asset inside a company than your finance group or your marketing group. When it’s deployed strategically, it can transform our situation and bring us more into alignment with the Father’s way of doing Kingdom business. We work for the biggest Family Office in the universe. We are the spiritual and financial stewards of the family and business assets God has entrusted to us. We have been given these assets so they might grow, be a blessing in the earth, and further God’s purposes of His Kingdom of Love to come to earth. We are here to create a rich divine inheritance at every level, to shift the atmosphere of every city we live in, and to transform every person and system of this world that we touch. Our Father’s influence, authority, wisdom and power is unrivaled and unmatched anywhere in the world. We have full access to it. We have authority over all systems of this world - regardless of who’s currently operating them. That’s not a statement of pride, that’s the situational reality - on earth as it is in Heaven. When we are stewarding our Father’s resources and when we need something done, we pray, we gain the spiritual intelligence required to align the systems of this world to do what our Kingdom business requires. We have authority over the systems of this world. We don’t move solely in business understanding and best practices ( the world can do that), we also move in divine Love, wisdom and understanding, spiritual and emotional intelligence, power and authority. We are powered by the Spirit of God. We have the authority to transform the systems of this world to become the systems of our Lord and of his Christ. We can do this because our lives and our work are aligned with the Kingdom of God. Because we know this and live out of this confidence, we reflect the lovingkindness and gentleness of our Father; we transform every person we encounter with His love; we are His fragrance in the earth. Every transaction we make leaves His mark of Grace. People don’t forget us because the aroma of Heaven is upon us. And lastly, the most important takeaway from Michelle Raftery: "When we cross the eternal finish line and look behind us, our family members must cross with us, or our successes are for naught." Thank you Michelle, I needed to SEE that. (Credit - Paul van Hoesen, Nashville, TN) 4. We are going ALL IN The topic of the Kingdom was the most significant theme that Jesus talked about.

133 East Coast Update - How are you navigating this?
Here's a quick update on what's going on preparing to move from our home of the last 13 years, to the Pennsylvania in June, 2022. What emotions am I feeling and how do I handle that? (And if this is news to you, first listen to Podcast #127 Hearing God and Expanding to the East Coast) 1. Sadness Redding is not a drive-thru city - I'm feeling the sadness of leaving people and a city I have invested in for over a decade. Grief is normal... when you have built into a community. Friends. Partners. Team. I am working on being ok with that and working through the feelings (kind of new for me!). I do have a professional counselor and wish I had her as part of my advisory team a couple decades ago!!! In preparation of moving I am already planning ahead for who I will meet with on a regular basis so that I have eyes-on wise counsel and peers who can speak into my life. => who do you have in your life that actually knows you? What are you doing to build that around you? 2. Overwhelmed When I think too far ahead of myself and all the details that need to be confirmed I feel overwhelmed. I am working on being present. I have grace for today. I cannot control things in the future; I can control what I do today. I will do today what I need to do today and trust God with tomorrow. => where have you got ahead of yourself and fighting anxiety as a result? What is right in front of you that you need to focus on? How's your prayer life, trusting God for everything else? 3. Excited Actually I'm feeling crazy excited. Things coming together as one. Simplified systems. Sharper focus. More robust online Heaven in Business membership community adding tactical business growth in partnership with Ray Edwards (Marketing), Ford Taylor (Leadership and Organizational Growth), Krish Dhanam (Sales), Patrice Tsague (Startup), Ken Fish (Healing, Deliverance, Prophetic...)...

129 Got Confidence?
Our confidence gets challenged when something doesn't go according to our expectation...

How we respond when confidence is challenged reveals whether it is limited to us, OR whether we have a source of confidence that is bigger....

127 Case Study: Hearing God... Expanding to the East Coast
After more than ten years being based in Redding, CA, Heaven in Business is expanding to the East Coast of USA. This will involve my family moving to Pennsylvania in June, 2022, adding proximity to New York, Philadelphia and Washington DC.... and direct flights to most of the United States! In this podcast I unpack this (surprise) direction for us, how we heard from God, how we translated this to practical action and are navigating the stakeholders in the process. This is a strategic move in line with much prayer and prophetic input that has become clear over the last 12 months. Heaven in Business remains in strong relationship with Bethel Church leadership as we continue to advance the vision that Bill Johnson and Kris Vallotton have stewarded for over three decades. Part of the Heaven in Business team (Michelle Raftery) will remain in Redding and we have ongoing events planned in Redding, both in 2022 and beyond. Overall, Heaven in Business will continue to connect, train and activate people to partner with God at work and engage in the wellbeing of cities. The existing conferences, retreats and membership community will continue while we also seek to further refine how to disciple people who are discipling cities. We are also enjoying a growing collaboration between multiple faith and work movements including Business Empowered, At Work on Purpose, Kingdom Driven Entrepreneur, Nehemiah Project, Transformational Leadership, Marketplace Chaplains and more.... preparing for the great awakening that we see ALREADY happening in the marketplace. We will share more over the coming months. The key thing for you to know is that in the near future there will be a Heaven in Business event or partner closer to YOU! If you have any questions or comments, please don't hesitate to contact us. We have highlighted some expected questions below. Peace to your house, Andy Mason, Michelle Raftery and the Heaven in Business team FAQ: What events are already planned for 2022 and where will these be located? - See Heaveninbusiness.com/open-events - There are also events yet to be posted for Birmingham (Mar 18th), Colorado (Apr 8-9), Pennsylvania (Sep 15-17) and more... Who will be leading the Redding Heaven in Business community and city initiatives? - There have been a number of initiatives led by different people and we will be highlighting those over the coming months, starting with a local gathering Thursday January 20th 7-8:30pm at The Salthouse, 1823 Pine St, Redding How can we participate in this transition as Andy & Janine move east? - We will share more in the coming months. Our prayer is to be able to take a month following the move, to rest and to hear God more specifically about His strategy going forward. If you want to financially support this process you can donate to Heaven in business or simply let us know and we can direct you accordingly. Can we invite the team to do an event in our city? - Absolutely. 2022 is already mostly full and we will be looking into strategic locations for 2023. Will the Heaven in Business membership be changing? - We plan on adding more guided courses and partnership resources eg. Andy's Hey God What Now course and Ford Taylor's Transformational Leadership. What does a city partnership look like and how can I start one? - Great question! We will address this separately.

126 Theme for 2022
Here's what I'm hearing God say for 2022, how I hear Him say it, and what that practically means for my year. I was actually sick between Christmas and New Years which was certainly not fun. Some serious man-flu that we thought was COVID until the test came back negative. My biggest problem was just when I was 'almost' back to health I jumped into a big day doing some outside-the-house jobs that wiped me out and sent me back to bed for a further 24-48hrs. Listen to your wife, Andy!!! So what did I hear God say for 2022? 1. Forget about what was and focus on what is about to be Forget what happened last year, and the year before, and the year before that. Don’t go over and over it in your head to understand or play through different scenario's of 'What if..." or "I should have..." Instead, focus on what’s ahead, because it is going to require all your attention. You have grace for today, mercy for yesterday and hope for tomorrow. So let it go. Think Frozen, and Lion King. It's in the past... you can run from it or you can learn from it. 2.
