Stew Rd. Audio Messages

This is a collection of the most recent messages I have shared at Living Word Church.  Also, if you are on Facebook, most of these can be seen on video HERE at about 60 minutes into the video.

  1. Simple, Fun, Effective 2021:  The Kingdom and the church in a new season and the Father shared 3 words to filter things through for 2021:  Simple, Fun, Effective.  We are to be simple in devotion to Jesus, full of joyful, life-giving activity and bearing more fruit than ever before.  I believe it will resonate with your spirit.  VIDEO Here *begins at 1:15 into the video
  2. Wisdom > Exalted Knowledge:  2 Corinthians 10 speaks of arguments and knowledge that exalts itself against the knowledge of Christ.  We are living in a day when someone can share a piece of “enlightened” or popular knowledge and it can reach millions of people in a matter of minutes.  However, it is absolutely critical that we discern what is wisdom and what is just exalted knowledge in this hour.  VIDEO Here begins at a little past 60 minutes into the video
  3. Church Under Pressure: The Book of Acts records the early days of the Church and they were under immense pressure and opposition.  They did not cower or retreat but rather thrived.  Let’s take a look at how we can go far beyond surviving in this hour:  VIDEO Here  at 51 min mark.
  4. Covert Advance 2020:  A worldwide pandemic, political and social upheaval and worry all around.  The enemy unleashed something called Covid19 to kill and destroy but Father had a Covert Advance in mind for 2020:  VIDEO Here  *message begins at around 48 min
  5. The Unsearchable Riches of Christ pt 4: The Riches of Restoration  The gospel was never meant to just be a “get out of hell card”.  It is far more powerful and beautiful than just that.  The good news of Jesus Christ is that He came to restore us back to connection with the Father and to partner with Him to restore all that was lost in the fall of man.  Isaiah 61 talks about what Jesus came to do in the earth and through us but He first wants YOU to be restored and made whole! Listen HERE.
  6. The Unsearchable Riches of Christ pt 3: Praise Perceives Provision  The question is never ” Are the riches of Christ here or coming in the future?”  No!  The question if whether we perceive them!   If we are surrounded at all times by the riches of Christ, how do we learn to see and perceive them with our spiritual eyes?  Listen HERE to discover how to see what is all around you! (Video Here)
  7. The Unsearchable Riches of Christ pt 2:  Expressed Through You  Ephesians 3:8 says the Father’s plan was to display His infinite creative wisdom and riches of Christ through His sons and daughters in the earth!   Christ is the source of life, redemption and provisions of all types but He chooses to display and disperse those things through His church.  That means, as a believer, you have a purpose much bigger than you could imagine. Listen HERE  for more! (  (Video Here)
  8. The Unsearchable Riches of Christ pt.1:  In Ephesians chapters 1-3, there are between 25-40 spiritual blessings we have in Christ!  In Christ we are the wealthiest people on the planet completely apart from our natural means or circumstances.  In Him we find identity, abundant grace, wisdom and power for every situation.  To go on a treasure hunt for the riches of Christ Listen HERE !

  9. The Gift and the Giver:  Christmas is a time of rememberance and celebration but it was born out of an act of giving when the Father gave the gift of His Son.   Listen HERE as I share 5 intentions of gifts and gift giving.

Redefining Intimacy, Connection and Sex by Jenn Bevan:  I am excited to be able to share this outstanding message from my wife from a series called Redeeming Culture.  Listen HERE as Jenn shares about intimacy in relationships from the perspective of Christ and the Bride with an overview of the Song of Solomon.
  11. Defined by Design: In Genesis God created male, female, family and work and He blessed all of them.  In order to experience the blessing of what He created and how He designed it, we have to break agreements with lies and accusations the enemy has said against gender, family and the blessing of work and purpose.  Listen HERE  
  12. Favor Doesn’t Mean Easy! In Joshua 17, the descendants of Joseph complained to Joshua the land they inherited was not big enough and was inhabited by powerful enemies. Joshua tells them to clear the forest and defeat the opposition for all the land they need. God has the same message for you today because favor doesn’t mean it will be easy! LISTEN HERE
  13. Four Keys in the Fire: We will all face times that feel as if we are in a fiery furnace of trial and testing. When we are in those seasons, there are 4 keys to bring us through to the other side. LISTEN Here for the 4 Keys.
  14. Shame Free for the Win:  This has been a life-changing conversation for us personally and our LWC family! Shame is the belief we are unworthy, unacceptable, we don’t measure up or the fear of being known.  We all have failures, behaviors, weaknesses or even successes we have hidden for fear of being known or rejected.  Where does this come from and how does it affect our everyday lives?   Click Here to Listen

  16. What’s Next? Life After the Holy Night:   Some moments and seasons in life are wonderful!  The night Jesus was born was filled with wonder, angels, joy and promises fulfilled, but not long after that extraordinary night things hit the fan.   So, what do we do after the party and the magic is over, everyone has gone and we are left overwhelmed with a mess and disappointment?  Click Here to Listen
  17. The Divine Invitation: We all have been given a divine invitation by the Father. If we will receive it, He has invited us to Fascination with Jesus (life beyond boredom), Freedom from all bondages and addictions, and to be Freedom Fighters to set others free to live fascinated and free as well. Do you want to take the invitation? CLICK HERE to Listen
  18. Dreaming With God:  To dream is to be honest about our hopes without fear.  3 dreams I have for my family and community are to be a supernatural people demonstrating that God is near and active in our lives, to be a people that are committed to not fighting alone and overcoming every obstacle with power in unity and (16,807) to see a city transformed by intentional giving away the gospel of the Kingdom.  What if?  Dare to dream with me and listen in …CLICK HERE to Listen
  19. Home of the Brave:  The strongest you will ever be is vulnerable.  To live a life of love is not for the faint of heart. Only the brave have the courage to risk the possibility of hurting in order to give and receive love.  Where will you choose to live?  CLICK HERE to Listen
  20. Glory to Glory: Generational Increase – Would you rather live in the valley or on the mountain top?

CLICK HERE to Listen
  21. No Covet in Covenant – Comparison pt.2: The story of David and Bathsheba is one of the clearest examples of coveting the Bible. In 2 Samuel 12, God shows us coveting comes from something deeper than a desire for someone else’s stuff. CLICK HERE to Listen
  22. Comparison Killer:  Run Your Race!:  We have all dealt with comparison at one time.  Comparison is a liar that tells us our success is based on our ability to be someone else.   Listen in for the cure for comparison.  CLICK HERE to Listen
  23. Shine Like Stars:  Philippians 2 says there is a way that we can shine like stars in a dark, fallen world.  How? Surprisingly, it is not something many would consider grand or noteworthy, it is simply to do life without complaining.  Complaining is an external evidence of an internal lack of trust.  CLICK HERE to Listen
  24. The Gift:  Imagine if someone risked everything to deliver a priceless gift with unlimited potential and power.  Would you open it?  Would you take the time to discover how it operates and uniquely benefits your life?  Jesus promised when he returned to the Father they would send that gift . .. .. CLICK HERE to Listen
  25. 3 Reasons You Need a B-Team:  We all need a team of people we can reach out to for prayer, support and encouragement.  If I didn’t take my car to get an oil change for a year, I wouldn’t say, “no one loves my car, it is unloved, not cared for and neglected.” But, we neglect putting our heart in the place to be cared for by Father and others and get frustrated that we are not cared for. Here are 3 reasons we all need a B-Team. CLICK HERE to Listen
  26. Called Out and Covered: After the fall in Genesis 3, Adam and Eve hid from God.  Father didn’t come to their hiding spot and shame or expose them.  He invited them into the light to cover them.  Hiding is the declaration that fear is the ruler in that area of my life which guarantees that struggle will continue until I am in the light.  CLICK HERE to Listen

  29. New Season, Old Giants:  When God brought his children out of slavery in Egypt, He deliberately took them on a course to meet and defeat giants when they were ready and able.  Sometimes we will experience an old struggle in a new season, not because we are that same person with the same struggle but because God brought back an old issue for us to defeat in a new season of grace and wisdom. CLICK HERE to Listen

Loving God With All Your Mind:  What does it mean to love God with all of our mind?  It means our mind is fixed on the promises and possibilities of God.  What did He say and what could He do?  Loving God with our mind begins with having peace but it ends with dreaming with God in prayer and hope.  CLICK HERE to Listen
  32. Slavery to Sonship:  Many people live their entire lives like the older brother in Luke 15 working for something they already have.  Do you live for God’s approval or from God’s approval?  CLICK HERE to Listen

  39. 1 + 1 = 10,000:  Pressure serves a purpose.  Maybe the battle you are facing is not just for you to learn to defeat the same enemy again, maybe God is allowing pressure to cause you to partner together with someone else for a much bigger victory than you would see on your own.  CLICK HERE to Listen
  40. Are You With Me?  Romans 12:15 says to rejoice with those who rejoice and mourn with those who mourn.  When under the leadership of the Holy Spirit, emotions are a gift that connect in relationships. Listen for 5 keys to living with Spirit-led emotions.  CLICK HERE to Listen
