In this episode, Carter interviews Tammy Chapman (The Chapel, Lake County) about how the gift of tongues deepened her walk with the Holy Spirit.Love the Bible Leadership Podcast? Consider becoming a patron for as little as $3 per month!Show NotesIn today’s episode, Pastor Carter conducts a fascinating interview with Tammy Chapman, Pastor, and wife to Senior Pastor Scott Chapman, at the Chapel, a local multi-site church. They discuss how to be faithful to and effective for Christ through partnering with Him, and the freedom and joy this offers.Relationship with the Holy Spirit and yearning for more. // Tammy gave her life to Jesus when she was 14 and admits she didn't know much. In college, she joined a Christian group and was discipled by a classmate. As she was growing and learning through God's word, her mentor, Jennifer, helped her connect to God through prayer. One of the group rules specified that speaking in tongues was not allowed, but Jennifer told Tammy that she had that spiritual gift. Tammy was moved by how close Jennifer was to God and how prayer flowed from her. She wanted a similar, deep intimacy with God, so she began to pray for the gift of tongues, before she had even heard it spoken.Presence and power of the Holy Spirit. // Gifts such as speaking in tongues or prophesying can be seen by some as somehow illegitimate, or fake. The Holy spirit is doing a work, worldwide, in His Church. His presence and power need space and acknowledgment. Some cessationists have recanted, and we're seeing less resistance and more openness to expressive spiritual gifts. [Read More]Support the show (https://www.patreon.com/fierceleadership)

Listen to this valuable message to hear how to ask the right questions to develop your God-given gifts. The Church needs you to do what only you can, to make an impact for Christ.Watch your priorities, you don’t come first. // Commencement speakers are always telling young people, ‘Follow your passions. Be true to yourself’. While this sounds great, and you shouldn’t waste your life trying to be someone else, make sure you’re not making yourself the priority. When you put yourself first, your life will begin and end with ‘self’. The spiritually mature don’t ask what they want from life, but, ‘What is God asking of me, from my life?’. Don’t ask for only what you want and bury your spiritual gifts. // Make your spiritual gifts a priority, discover them and use them, they reveal your purpose.

As the Father has sent me, I am sending you.” If you take Jesus at face value, he tells us we will do the same things that he did. Presence. // When you’re speaking to someone, quietly invite the presence of God.

Externally one can see God is at work, but internally you can feel exhausted and spent. John Wimber, in his book The Way In is the Way On, writes ‘All ministry is the ministry of Jesus’. Does this ring true for your ministry, does it reflect the ministry of Jesus, what Jesus did? After being confronted with this question, Pastor Jamie reached a crossroads, he asked God, “Have I gotten it all wrong?” God led him in a process of re-examining everything he believed, Biblically about his faith, which led to a complete overhaul of his Christianity.

Who Is On Your Board Of Directors?When Change is Unexpected Part 2 (Read at: https://www.bibleleadership.com/who-is-on-your-board-of-directors/)For the leader, the job of asking questions is probably never done.Where there is no guidance the people fall, But in abundance of counselors there is victory. - (Proverbs 11:14 NASB95)A lack of perspective outside of our own can lead to a fall. This is because, especially when change is coming on suddenly, we are more likely to respond in emotion or impulse, potentially making decisions that could be difficult to undo.Gather DataOne of the most important things we can do when navigating change is to get good information about what may be coming, and how we can respond in wisdom.Elmer towns wrote,“You make good decisions on good information. You make bad decisions on bad information. (Towns, Fasting for Spiritual Breakthrough, 65)Because we need trusted perspective that is beyond our own, we must have a plan to bring others to our personal leadership table.  Is the threat of change staring you down and trying to get you to cry “chicken”?In the next few posts, I’ll lay out three places you can go looking for information that will help you make better decisions in the midst of change: Your GodYour CrewThe Authorities (not the police) Think of the following groups as your personal board of directors. Each of them is important for different reasons. The first place you need to get information?Ask God Some QuestionsOf course, the Lord is first. Even if you have NO ONE ELSE on your personal board, the Lord is the strongest contributor (plus He has all power . . . So . . . One less thing). A side effect of change is that it can leave us feeling disoriented. This being the case, during shift is possibly the WORST time to be inconsistently connecting with God. The Lord knows everything about what is coming, which parts you need to know, and which you don’t. A plain reading of the Scripture would lead us to believe that Jesus didn’t go heal Lazarus without the Father’s counsel (see John 11:5 and John 5:19). When He might have gone right away, He declined and tarried 2 extra days. Jesus’ determination to be led by the Father (rather than by emotion or even human loyalty), caused the more-glorifying outcome to be attained.  Ask the Lord,How do you want me/us to think about this? What Scriptures would you bring me to in order to shape my heart about this?How do you want me to be other-centric in this situation?What are some enemy pitfalls I should watch out for?It may be that He just wants you to be at peace and be still, or He may want you to jump to action and strike while the iron is hot. Either way, you need to hear Him say it (Here is a podcast on being careful not to walk in PRESUMPTION about God’s will).Where do you look for answers? Now is the time to be quietly listening before the Lord. If you’ve kept a spiritual journal, now is the time to review your highlights.Whatever you do, now is not the time to be neglecting time in God’s word. Not only might He use it to bring revelation on what to do (or NOT do), the Word ALONE has the power to show us where our hearts are not in alignment with His . . .
