“As bold as a lion…”

"Into our fears, a voice speaks"
Before the COURAGE conference this year, we invited anyone who felt God was speaking to them for us to send us what they were hearing. We have collated them and made them available on the website for your encouragement.
During the conference we also had a team who were charged with bringing God’s words to us. Two that we felt were particularly relevant and encouraging were from Phil Whittall and Mike Frisby.
Mike spoke about God bringing us “an anointing of joy in our salvation”, and encouraged us that when the times call for courage “it is the righteous who are as bold as a lion”.
Phil said:
We have a message that brings life to the lifeless, hope to the hopeless, power to the weak and salvation to the condemned. [And] just as Jeremiah did we hear a voice that says: “Go wherever I send you and say whatever I tell you. And don’t be afraid of the people, for I will be with you and will protect you” (Jeremiah 1:7-8).
When we are filled with the joy of our salvation, and convinced of the gospel’s power to save others, we can go out boldly, knowing that even when we face opposition and even persecution, God is with us.
You can watch the videos on our COURAGE page, where you will also find links to the text of Phil’s word and the other words sent to us before and throughout the conference.

There are just ten days left to give to the COURAGE offering. We believe God wants to strengthen and extend our work across the board in this next season, in encouraging and supporting our family, in empowering the poor, in sharing the gospel with our neighbours and the nations…
You gave so generously at the conference - we’ve already exceeded our target. Thank you. But we wanted to make sure that everyone who wants to has a chance to join in, to be part of the team of bold, courageous givers. If God is calling you to give, or to give more, here’s your chance…

The second pioneering situation we prayed for at ENOUGH was Hope Church Sittingbourne. Watch the video to remind yourself of who they are, then pray for them.

Pray for:
Roots - you may have seen on social media that the prayer request for local school places for Gordon and Natalie’s children was answered even before ENOUGH, let that fire your faith for the other areas mentioned.
Hearts - that they would live with wide open hearts for the sake of the people of Sittingbourne
Smiles - They want to be a community that is full of joy, living with gladness today for the eternal hope set before us tomorrow.
