There are 10 gates between Heaven and Earth symbolised by Nehemiah repairing the 10 gates of Jerusalem. The principal gate is the Sheep Gate- the Gate of Redemption. If we can clear all 10 gates we’ll find a rush of heaven’s power that will move us faster and further into

In all of our lives from the moment we were born, there’s been The Scarlet Cord of God’s faithfulness running alongside us, swooping into our future. It’s been there in the euphoric times knowing that you’d need a companion when the music fades, and it’s been there in troubled times
Donkeyology: The theology of Donkeys – why God chooses to use ordinary things for His extraordinary purposes and not special things. God chose a donkey to carry His presence into Jerusalem and God chooses you to carry His presence into your city, for His Glory. In the message Dave Gilpin
Ecclesiastes infers that if the ax is dull and its edge unsharpened, more effort is needed to cut down the tree. Yet, a few minutes of sharpening can make a difficult job seem effortless.

Your future is the exact opposite of your feelings. Your destiny is the exact opposite of your dead ends. Your purpose in life is the direct inverse to the past in your life! Why? Because God builds his greatest strengths upon your greatest weaknesses. Because Jabez knew this, he was singled out from a list of 600 names and granted his cry to become everything he wasn’t!

Wisdom for a new year from Dave Gilpin. Most people get to the end of a year and start of a new year with frustrations, criticisms, and a general high level of exhaustion!
