Limitless! Fearless Conversations With A Limitless God!
with Speaker: Dr. Veirdre Jackson
As women fearlessly pursuing the heart of a limitless God, it becomes imperative to leap and overcome defeating mindsets of fear, doubt and brokenness in order to access all that God has for us in a life of bold freedom offered in abundance. God has given us many gifts for this journey of abundant living.
But 2 Timothy 1:7 reminds us that He has not given us a spirit of fear.... Recognizing He will give us the strength needed to accomplish a purpose for Him that is incomprehensible in our hands but divinely ordained in His, through the provision of love, power and a sound mind.
He gives us a sound mind to access these gifts ON purpose. But sometimes we put this power in a box by placing limits on how He can show up in our lives.
Fearless Conversations with a Limitless God is a series of conversations found in scripture that unpack how Christ met different individuals at specific points in their lives to interrupt broken belief systems, misguided self narratives, tragic stories of shame and regret and expose “hiding places” in order to free them to walk in a fearless confidence, accessing promises meant to be kept and used as a weapon to unravel lies of the enemy.
Come out of Hiding : Move from Shame to Significance | John 4:28- 30
When we carry around baggage that we were never intended to carry emotionally, physically, spiritually, or mentally … WE SEEK OUT HIDING PLACING… Let’s explore how a conversation at a well can release a woman from years of shame, guilt, rejection, doubt, regret, defeat and hurt and ignite her to drop the contents of her cracked past and come out of hiding in order to be used to transform the future lives of others. In this first conversation, we will examine how Christ talks us all through the practical steps of moving from a place of being thirsty to a position of thriving.
Love Has Everything To Do With It | 1 John 4:18 MSG
I John 4:17-18 God is love. When we take up permanent residence in a life of love, we live in God and God lives in us. This way, love has the run of the house, becomes at home and mature in us, so that we’re free of worry on Judgment Day—our standing in the world is identical with Christ’s. There is no room in love for fear. Well-formed love banishes fear. Since fear is crippling, a fearful life—fear of death, fear of judgment—is one not yet fully formed in love.
Do you suffer from fear or insecurity? What about the fear of lack? Are you worried that God won't come through for you? This passage and a conversation between Christ and a woman willing to just accept crumbs from our Lord (Matthew 15: 21- 28), proves to be a masterful teaching lesson that we do not have to fear that God doesn't love us or that He won't come through for us in our time of need. It shows a sensitive example of how He will minister to the urgent need of a faith-filled, tenacious heart and challenge us to recognize His power, although we may have to learn something more deeply about love in the process. Join me in this conversation that will allow us to learn to accept the reality of His love for us, so that our fears do not control us.
It’s not a Set Back, It’s a Set Up
James 1:2-4 reminds us,“… when it seems as though you are facing nothing but difficulties see it as an invaluable opportunity to experience the greatest joy that you can! 3 For you know that when your faith is tested it stirs up power within you to endure all things.4 And then as your endurance grows even stronger it will release perfection into every part of your being until there is nothing missing and nothing lacking. (TPT)
Our Father sees our life from the beginning to the end and at times will use what seems to look like a set back as a set up as a part of the plan to help us prosper, strengthen and see Him in new ways. In this session, we are going to eaves drop on a conversation between two warriors for our God, battling from two different places - one from a place of authority and one from a place of service, but both encountering the power of God when they are able to shift their focus from the facts of their situation to the truth of the power of their God. Life as a woman of God does not guarantee an exemption from challenges, disappointments or setbacks, but our God provides specific instruction and practical tools for shifting perspective and accessing promise.
Leveling Up and Leaving A Legacy: Lessons from Someone Chosen
“How you climb a mountain is more important than reaching the top.” ~ Yvon Chouinard
In our journey to live a life abundant for God, a person can choose to go back to familiar or climb toward growth. As we look at the emotional, mental, phyiscal and spiritual journey of Elijah (1 Kings 18:20 - 19:18) from the highs of Mt. Carmel to the lows of Horeb, we will use this example of a mighty prophet on a mission for God to examine how we can sometimes focus so much at getting to the top of the mountain but miss the internal character traits that will be required to sustain a position in elevated places. How do we move from exhausted “stuck places” (hearing the voice of God saying “what are you doing here”) to a place with a sharpened focus on the growth process of courageous influence, emotional resilience, mental strength, and leveraged fear - poised to complete the assignments we have been chosen to lead and leave as a legacy.
Time apart from the demands of everyday is essential in reconnecting and drawing closer to God. Thank you for giving us this opportunity. Wendy, Ocean City, NJ
