“The look of your countenance should bear witness that you believe in the word of God”.
Today, on the Red Church Broadcast, Joseph Z is in the studio with Allison and they talk about how we can burn the ships in our lives and keep going. He begins by sharing one of the words he has for the coming year, which is, “Burn the ships and never look back”. He makes us understand that everybody is excited on the front side, but no one wants to go the distance, and when people are not with us in a particular season, we should see it as protection and not rejection. He employs the word of God from the Book of Hebrews 10:38 to inform us that God has no pleasure in anyone who draws back from living by faith.

Moving on, Joseph elaborates on the importance of burning the ships in the coming year, referencing the word of God from the Book of Hebrews 6:9 to educate us, teaching that the Lord is not unjust to forget our labor of love, but we must exercise faith and patience, remain steadfast in every circumstance so that we don’t lose out on our reward from God. Allison echoes her support to this, asserting that there’s something powerful in disesteeming the enemy’s throes; that is to say, ignoring the enemy’s hits sets us free from the state they want us to be in. Once more, Joseph brings to our understanding that the look of our countenance should bear witness that we believe in the word of God.
Moreso, in Hebrews 6:13, we are led to understand that God swore by Himself when He made a promise to Abraham because He could swear by no one else greater; saying that He will multiply, and bless us, after we’ve patiently endured to the end. By the same token, we obtain the promises of God when we wait on God patiently and in faith. On the other hand, Allison makes us understand that when we trust God with what we value the most, through giving, we exhibit a strong faith in Him, and as such He will return in the same measure what we’ve given away.
In addition, Allison urges us to seek the face of the Lord and read the word of God always because nothing else matters. Also, she reminds us that we will face eternity alone, and we should make an effort to turn from ways that are not pleasing to the Lord. They conclude with a prayer, Allison prays for wisdom over us and breaks off the spirit of sadness from our lives. She further rebukes depression, and speaks protection over our children and parents, calling the prodigals home to their own in the name of Jesus!
