Peg didn’t know what I was going to talk about this morning. But God does, and God is absolutely singing it through Peg.

Father, I just thank you that the body knows what time it is. Peg is singing the correct narrative. There are a lot of narratives out there right now. So let’s look at the definition of “narrative.” Every time I read something, I’m always kind of filtering through “what’s the narrative.” A narrative is a way of presenting or understanding a situation or series of events that reflects and promotes a particular point of view or set of values.

What’s the narrative? “That reflects and promotes a particular point of view or set of values.”

There’s a war right now regarding the narrative. And it’s everywhere. It’s in your home. It’s in your business. It’s in your mind. It’s in your heart. It’s been going on from the beginning of time. It started in the garden. God gave one narrative. Satan gave another narrative. And then when we gave into the evil narrative, God redeemed the narrative again with Jesus.

He knows what’s going on and He wants us to know what time it is. He wants us to know what the narrative is. And the narrative is good news. The narrative is victory. The narrative is the Church in on the offense. But I will tell you that the narrative is… it’s time to return to our first love. Because we can’t carry out this narrative without returning to our first love.

I think a big piece is that the Church in America returns to the hunger for God. The hunger to know her first love. The deep dive into the Word. Willing to forsake all others and get with God and fall in love with Him again and be lovers of the lover of our souls. Because when our souls prosper, we prosper. And if the Church doesn’t prosper right now, that’s it.

But guess what? We’re prospering.

How do we prosper? We get with the lover of our souls. Narrative—a way of presenting or understanding a situation or series of events that reflects and promotes a particular point of view or set of values.

You know, we get this narrative right, it can’t be resisted. Are you kidding? We get pulled in the narrative. Isaiah 60 happens! The dark narrative. I mean, it’s pretty apparent the dark narrative right now. But the narrative of the light of God, the glorious Church coming upon us and us being bold in that narrative. Perfect love casts out all fear. The nations do come to the uprising of the glory of God in us. It’s the kingdom narrative! And unless you’re just completely lost forever, it’s pretty impossible for that not to bring you in. Because we’re made for freedom. We’re made for victory. God designed us that way.

Peg continued with worship…

Jeannie prayed…

Father, we listen right now… that you’ve already delivered us… you already have the plan of victory.

We keep moving forward in you and then comes the breakthrough.

Jeannie continued to teach…

Yesterday we read in Isaiah 43… and I didn’t quite catch this until I caught it. In Isaiah 43:18, the Passion translation, “But forget all that, is it nothing compared to what I’m going to do. For I’m about to do something new.” I’ve always thought of it as “move on from the negative.” But if you read the scriptures before that, He’s talking about all the great things He’s done. So what God is saying to us is forget about all those great things I’ve done. Yes, use them to bring into remembrance what I’m about to do and cause it to let your heart be lifted up because I’m about to do even greater things.

So the things that God has done before, they couldn’t even be perceived really. So you’re going to lead the army into the Red Sea and then you’re going to cause the Red Sea to swallow them up. Did any of them have any idea that’s what He was going to do? When Paul was in prison and he started praising God, did he think, “Okay, if I praise God, there’ll be an earthquake. And then the chains on the prisoners will fall. And then they’re all going to come to me and I’m going to tell them to stay in prison and they’re going to listen. And then the prison guards are going to get to know Jesus.” Did he know that?

He is about to do greater things that have never been done before! Imagine if when Paul was in prison, he would have been the conspiracy theorist that just looked at everything that was wrong. Don’t get me wrong. I mean, I get it. Okay. But if he would have had the mindset of, “it’s all going downhill,” this never would have happened. If God would have had the mindset, “it’s all going downhill,” when they ate from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, this never would’ve happened. But the God that’s alive in you can’t help but rejoice. We can’t help but rejoice. We are literally in a time of things that have never happened are happening now! Things that we haven’t even heard of… Noah didn’t even know it could rain. He didn’t even know! But he believed!

My husband was talking about how when things didn’t go their way, the Israelites would complain. And we were talking about how that was an indication of their intimacy with God. And by the way, I’ve done it. Are you kidding? Yeah. Yesterday. Thanks for calling me out. That’s my husband. Yeah, he was in it too. Anyway.

But after all God had done, it was never enough because the condition of their hearts wasn’t a first-love heart condition.


So, Father, we thank you that the Church in America returns to her first love.

We thank you that you stir up in her a burning desire to know you more for the sake of who you are.

Father, I thank you right now that as your love ministers to us, we become well tooled weapons on the offense… taking kingdom territory.


Let’s talk about David for a minute. David was a total rascal and he’s still someone that God was crazy about. So I have hope for myself. One thing that David did is … he was taking care of the sheep all the time and while he was out there, he killed the lion and the bear. But why did he kill the lion and the bear in his intimate time with God? Because he was protecting the sheep.

Father, they’re going to know we’re Christians by our love. And those battles that we’re winning and where we refuse to give up, the sheep are depending on us winning… they’re depending on it. The culmination of victories in the Church, encouraging one another and cheering us on. David killed the lion and the bear and it gave him confidence to kill Goliath. But it was because he was doing it from a place of love. He wasn’t doing it from a place of “I want all the credit. I want all the glory.” He was out there with God… just he and God. He killed the lion and the bear because they were going after the sheep. And what was the result? He ended up killing Goliath.


Holy God, we are undefeated in you… we are victorious in you… we take the land… we take this nation… we take this government… we take this city… we take this state… we take back the Church glory to God.
