E64: Full Dependence On The Father
Of course, Jesus has always been God. He never stopped being God even when He became a man. However, during His earthly ministry He depended fully upon the Holy Spirit. He said in John 5:19 that He did what He saw the Father do. Beyond that, He always found time to get away from the crowds to be alone with His Father. Jesus understood the importance of time in the secret place. Join me this week as we look at the example that Jesus set before us for cultivating intimacy with God. His power for life and ministry came from the presence of the Father, and that same invitation is available to YOU today. For more resources or to connect further, visit www.simplepowermedia.com.

E62: Should You Speak In Tongues??
What do you think? Is speaking in tongues for today? Or did it pass away with the first century church as some have claimed? Is speaking in tongues relevant? Does God still baptize people with the Holy Spirit today? Thanks for joining me this week, as I discuss the Biblical perspective on the baptism in the Holy Spirit and speaking in tongues. SPOILER ALERT! I believe that speaking in tongues is an invaluable gift of the Spirit that is available to EVERY believer. However, there is a definite stigma tied to speaking in tongues. If you speak in tongues, you might be labeled as "one of THOSE kinds of Christians." Many believer speak in tongues once in a while but do not understand fully what it is even all about. I've dedicated this week's episode to breaking down the baptism in the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in tongues from a Biblical perspective. In this episode I discuss the theological perspective, WHY I believe it is for today and for EVERY believer, and the benefits associated with using this amazing gift of the Spirit.

E61: The Mark Of Maturity
Thanks for listening to the Simple Power Podcast. This week, I am breaking down Colossians 3:12-17, focusing on coming into maturity in Christ. I believe Scripture is clear, that the mark of true maturity is loving one another. Jesus said, "They will know that you are My disciples by your LOVE for one another" (see John 13:35). In these days of heated debate and argument, we need to be reminded of the importance of putting others first, esteeming others better than ourselves, walking in forgiveness, and honoring one another (all things that are easier said than done!) If you want a practical way to increase in Godly maturity, I think this is where a huge part of your focus should lie... loving people extravagantly. "But above all things put on love, which is the bond of perfection" (Colossians 3:14).For more resources, visit www.simplepowermedia.com.

Are You Swinging Your Sword Out Of Season? (Interview with Caleb Hyers)
"Wisdom is the principle thing." When we choose to set our minds on things above, not on things on the earth, we position ourselves to be led by the Spirit. This becomes particularly important in our relationships, in the way we respond to conflict, and in the way we respond to one another. Everyone has an opinion, but people are more important than opinions. In this interview, Pastor Caleb Hyers of the Resting Place in Tampa, Florida discusses the importance of having a political STANCE but not falling into the trap of a political SPIRIT. A political spirit is only interested in being RIGHT, and ignores the value of the other person. As the body of Christ we have make sure that we are staying aligned with our HEAD, who is Christ. We have a responsibility to represent HIM well to the world around us. We don't do that by chopping people's heads off in the name of truth. We do that through the motivation of LOVE by demonstrating the nature and character of the Father who thinks EVERY SINGLE PERSON is to die for!For more information about Caleb Hyers, to check out his resources, and the online course "52 Weeks of Wisdom" visit www.calebhyers.com OR www.lifefromheaven.com.For more resources from Duke Lamastra, visit www.simplepowermedia.com.God bless you.

E59: You Have The Mind Of Christ
I Corinthians 2:16 says that we have the mind of Christ. Have you ever really thought about how mind-blowing that statement is? It doesn't say that you will get the mind of Christ someday... no, YOUR Bible says that you HAVE the mind of Christ. In this week's episode I want to explore that reality. You and I are transformed from the inside out as we bring our minds into alignment with God's way of thinking. I believe that the "renewed mind" from Romans 12:2 IS the mind of Christ, and as our minds are renewed we position ourselves to walk in greater freedom and power.

Join me this week for my interview with Amy Davison, writer, teacher, and podcast co-host for Mama Bear Apologetics. In this week's episode, Amy shares about the practicality and power of being able to stand firm on what you believe and give a good Biblical defense of the gospel. I love the balance we reached in this discussion between being full of compassion for people AND studying to show yourself approved. Learning how to engage in Biblical apologetics is a powerful and authentic way to demonstrate the love of the Father to those around you.

E56: Pursue Love
The Apostle Paul wrote, "Pursue love, and desire earnestly spiritual gifts..." (I Corinthians 14:1a). Notice how PURSUING LOVE is pre-emptive of DESIRING SPIRITUAL GIFTS. Both are important, but there is nothing more important that LOVE. This week's episode is a quick discussion on the importance of love as the primary motivation of our hearts. When we pursue Love above all else, we position ourselves to go after other desires in a healthy way. Jesus was often moved with compassion, and miracles followed. Compassion is an excellent compass. When love is your primary motivation, really good things happen!

E55: The Holy Spirit's Nudge
If you have ever struggled to hear God's voice clearly and consistently OR you just want to grow more in your ability to hear God's voice, you are in the right place. This week, I wanted to focus in on one specific aspect of hearing God's voice that has been a game-changer in my personal life in the area of hearing the voice of God. If you have ever had the thought or been taught that it is difficult or complicated to hear God's voice, I want you to know that NOTHING could be further from the truth. You were made to hear the voice of your Creator, and this week I want to give you a simple tip that I believe will help you grow tremendously in this area.

E54: Jesus' First Miracle
Join me this week on the Simple Power Podcast for a discussion on the presence and power of God. The first miracle accredited to Jesus in the Gospel of John took place at a wedding in Cana of Galilee. You know the story... Jesus turned the water into wine. On this week's podcast I wanted to take an up close look at this miracle because I believe it invites us into Jesus' world and shows us the heart of the Father. It gives us some clues about what He values and what moves His heart. Every miracle Jesus performed was both a demonstration of the Father's heart AND an invitation into what's possible for the believer through the power of the Holy Spirit.

E52: From Wilderness to Promise
The wilderness experience for the children of Israel was glorious to an extent... they experienced the supernatural power and provision of God on a daily basis. He provided food and water. He made sure their clothes didn't wear out. He was so faithful, and His presence was in the midst of the people. However, the wilderness was not the extent of the plan of God for His people. His desire was to move into the Land of Promise... a land of abundance and blessing. In the Promised Land, the people of God had to work and fight... they experienced tons of opposition, but they did it in partnership with God according to His favor that was upon them as a nation.I believe this to be a prophetic picture for the church. God wants to move His people beyond the mentality of "just enough to get by" into greater abundance and blessing. He actually wants YOU to experience so much blessing and favor upon your own life that your life becomes a source of blessing for others. This is not a "prosperity gospel," but it is a realization that the gospel includes prosperity. God wants YOU to experience success in every area of life. Success is not defined by money in the bank, but by your obedience to fulfill the call of God upon your life... and within that context God wants to bless, increase, and prosper you beyond measure.

E51: God Is Good
I don't know about you, but sometimes I need to be reminded of the goodness of God. "God is good" is one the most simple, and yet most profound, statements we can make about who God is. I am convinced that when we build our lives upon this simple truth, everything shifts. The goodness of God is the foundation for building TRUST with God... I mean, you will never trust God fully if you don't believe in your heart of hearts that He is good. In this week's episode, we are going to contemplate God's goodness, because I am convinced that this the foundation for a life of faith, adventure, and miracles. The more you come to know His goodness, the more you will trust Him to accomplish the impossible both in and through you.

E50: Born to Overcome the World
Jesus said, "In this world you will have tribulation, but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world." John later said, "Whatever is born of God overcomes the world." YOU are born of God, and therefore YOU are made to overcome the world. We are overcomers. In this week's episode, I am talking about keeping our focus in the right place in the midst of chaos, confusion, or out of control circumstances. It's not helpful to make excuses. It's not helpful to blame the devil or blame other people for the problems you face. As children of God ALL things work together for our good, so this is an encouragement to respond to every circumstance of life according to our NEW nature in Christ.

E47: Supernatural Sleep
There is something so powerful about going to sleep the right way. In the beginning of the book of Genesis, God created the heavens and the earth. God took 6 days to create everything we see, and then on the 7th day He rested. After each day of creation, the Bible says these words, "The evening and the morning were the first day" (and "the second day" and so on). Hmmm... What if you day didn't begin when you woke up in the morning... what if it began at night before you went to bed? What if you started off every single day of your life from a place of rest? What if a restful night sleep prepared the way for you to have a victorious day? In this week's episode we are going to explore the spiritual implications of sleep and resting in the Lord.

E46: God Is NOT Limited By Your Experience!
I hope this is NOT offensive to you, but STOP limiting God to YOUR experience. I have noted many, many times that we will try to over-explain or explain-away WHY something didn't happen or WHY God didn't move in a particular situation. We cannot develop our theology around our experiences. We have to look at what Jesus said and what Jesus modeled. We have to look at the fullness of the gospel message. Jesus demonstrated how to have a walk with the LORD that is characterized by power and by presence. We cannot separate God's power from Christianity...regardless of our past experiences.This week's episode is an encouragement AND a challenge to go after things in God that you have yet to experience. I am not talkng about being flaky. I am talking about carrying out the mandate that Jesus gave us. Among other things, He said to heal the sick, cleanse lepers, raise the dead and cast out demons. That's not weird stuff...that's part of the normal Christian life. Normal Christianity IS powerful, and we should EXPECT God to move in and through us in powerful ways.

E45: Co-heirs with Christ (Conversation with Denisse Lamastra)
Pastor, church planter, author (and superwife), Denisse Lamastra, was back on the program for this week's podcast. Continuing the identity series, we discussed sonship and how our relationship as sons and daughters of God gives us access to everything Jesus came to secure for us. Romans 8:17 declares that we are co-heirs and joint-heirs with Jesus Christ. He holds nothing back from us! The more we understand the nature of our Heavenly Father and who we are in Him, the more restful life becomes. Jesus' obedience brought us into perfect union with the Father, where absolutely nothing can separate us from His love. When our lives are established upon this foundational truth, we become an authentic expression of the Father's love. This is the foundation for a supernatural lifestyle.
