Conflict or Harmony?

Conflict or Harmony?

Conflict or Harmony? Throughout the Bible, we learn that God has many different names. Often we look at each one individually, but what if we were to look at them together as a whole? What if the seemingly opposing attributes of God were not in conflict, but were actually in harmony with each other? It would…

Forgiveness: An Open Door for Jesus to Heal

Forgiveness: An Open Door for Jesus to Heal

Outreach Testimony! On my team’s first day of outreach in Vanuatu, we heard about something called the healing waters, which were an area of water blessed by the Holy Spirit. People from every island of Vanuatu were coming with the expectation of being healed. When we arrived, we found over 250 people sitting in pools…

God’s Perfect Timing

God’s Perfect Timing

Outreach Testimony During the last week of ministry in Vanuatu, we decided to do a treasure hunt. We prayed about what or who God wanted us to pray for and I really felt like he was saying there would be a pregnant woman somewhere along the way. I kept pressing in and asking Him where…

The Essence of Prayer

The Essence of Prayer

We all know prayer is important to a healthy Christian life, but how often do we find that prayer is probably the one thing we have the hardest time consistently engaging? For me, prayer was one thing I did when I ate and right before I went to bed. Religiously I would pray at these…

The journey is more important than the end result

The journey is more important than the end result

I found myself joining staff here at YWAM Marine Reach because I felt God calling me to a life surrendered to Him and doing His work among the nations. My time on DTS was truly radical – it felt like God opened my eyes to what a life living in intimacy with Him actually looked…

The Art of Godly Stillness

The Art of Godly Stillness

It seems like no matter where I go or what I do, there’s always an expectation. Do something. Anything. It doesn’t really matter what, but whatever you do, don’t remain still, lest you be caught lazy or weak. Have you ever noticed how awkwardly we view silence in a conversation. And wandering in the quiet, alone,…

God’s Provision

God’s Provision

What does provision mean to you? Just as fingerprints are unique and vastly diverse – I believe that God’s provision looks different for everyone. For some it might be in the form of finances for a missions trip or car. For others it might mean bringing a friend to them when they feel utterly alone…

The Power of a Testimony

The Power of a Testimony

Our stories are the secrets of who we are. They are beneath the normal level of conversation, buried deep within ourselves. In the first week of DTS, we are encouraged to share our life stories – the joys, pains, deep wounds, nothing left out. Not in smaller groups, not in gender mixed groups but everyone…

Prepare The Way

Prepare The Way

During a recent outreach, Medical Compassion team 2 had the opportunity to go to the Island of Espiritu Santo in Vanuatu. The name of the island translated from Spanish is Holy Spirit. When Captain Pedro Fernandes de Quiros discovered Vanuatu and landed on the island, he claimed it in the name of Jesus Christ. The…

Humility

Humility

Proverbs 22:4 “Humility is the fear of the Lord; its wages are riches and honor and life.” Pride is a sneaky thing. When I was confronted with the fact that I had some seriously deep-rooted habits and mindsets of pride during my first week of the lecture phase, I decided to attack it head on…

Becoming a Family

Becoming a Family

Night has fallen on Mount Maunganui. As I gaze down upon the warm glow of distant streetlights, I am captivated by the mysterious emptiness of the ocean below, and I reflect on the greatness of God and His powerful stirring in the lives of the young believers across New Zealand. The Marine Reach July DTS has been active…

We Who Enter That Rest

We Who Enter That Rest

“‘Today, if you hear his voice, do not harden your hearts,’ … there remains a Sabbath rest for the people of God, for whoever has entered God’s rest has also rested from his works as God did from his. Let us therefore strive to enter that rest, so that no one may fall by that same…

Consumed by the Flames of Glory, Himself

In photo: Shmuel Stadtlander The afternoon sun drenches Gideon’s Valley in cloths of light and gentle shade; there are precious days when the sun sits just above the waterfall and reveal near-whimsical waters that shimmer like a crystalline kaleidoscope. Walking along the shin-high waters upon a algae-smoothed rock shelf, all at the top of the waterfall,…

GOD: the Lion or the Lamb?

This week’s blogpost author: Amanda Stevens. Photo Credit: Adrian Young. What is God’s character? What is in His nature? “What about you? Who do you say I am?” Jesus poses this question in Matthew chapter 16. Femi Oni from the UK flew over to teach us about the nature and character of God. The Bible…
