I BELIEVE IN YOU

Pastor Steve

Your eternal Father believes in you! And I believe in you!

It was one of the darkest days of my life. I decided to walk away. The overwhelming shortness of breath, an intense from-the-neck-up headache, and the subsequent light headed swirl surrounded me like a cloud. And then I heard that still small voice, “I BELIEVE IN YOU!” You see, it is God that works in you, both to will and do His good pleasure. Are you ready to change the way you think so you can walk in BREAKTHROUGH?

The frustration that blew against me that day was a fierce wind. Some of my closest friends and leaders accused me, walked away, and only for personal prejudice. I could not put my finger in the hole on the dam, and more water flowed until a breach ensued. I experienced a confusion like never before. When people walk away, you find a new strength in the LORD. He says, “I believe in You.”

As the saying goes, when life gives you lemons make lemonade!

I want to show you how to make the best of your present circumstances!

I invite you!

THIS IS MY STORY

THIS IS MY STORY

Steve Scroggs Teaching

SozoLife May 21 – Columbia SC!!!This is My Story

I remember sitting on the floor with my brothers and sisters as our mother read The Pilgrim’s Progress. As she finished each chapter, we all said, “Read another one! Please…! …read another one!” I love a great story. One of my favorite stories is Aladdin and the Arabian knights. While stories touch the young and old alike, they also shape the soul’s belief system. Jesus told stories and parables to both open and hide heavenly secrets. The other day, I heard my seven-year-old grandson make his favorite request, “Mimi, tell me a story.” This is My Story, and you have one that needs to be told.

But, the oldest storyteller was the first. In fact, he dreamed an eternal love story before time began. He created time to move the story at a foreordained rhythm and at a predetermined pace. When he chose to record history, he wrote it in a story. And, when your place in time arrived, he took your story book off of his shelf,[1] and inserted it as an integral part of His.

However, God’s story did not start with man. His started with the Lamb slain from the foundations of the universe.[2] He knitted His son’s sacrifice into the fabric of the universe and invested himself before he made Adam, and before He said, “You shall not eat of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.” Grace kissed mercy. Elohim is the most glorious of all stories, and He wrote His own story into the creation, in the hearts, in the minds, in the souls, and in the eras, epochs, periods, and times of every human being. This is an ever evolving, continuously developing, and eternally advancing story.

When Jesus told his disciples the story of his own death, they ignored him the first two times. The third time Jesus told them, it went deep into their heart causing them to feel sad. It was then he said, “I am telling you now before it happens, so that when it does happen you will believe that I am He. I assure you: Whoever receives anyone I send receives Me, and the one who receives Me receives Him who sent Me.”[3] Jesus sensed their sadness and told another story. “In My Father’s house are many dwelling places; if not, I would have told you. I am going away to prepare a place for you. If I go away and prepare a place for you, I will come back and receive you to Myself, so that where I am you may be also.”[1]

Be The Message

Be The Message

It was early in the morning when the smell of camp fire smoke mixed with diesel fuel reminded me that I was in M’barara, Uganda, East Africa. The restaurant in the starred hotel was the closest we found to American cuisine. (It’s hard to mess up eggs, bacon, toast, coffee, and orange juice.) I was early, but the team was scheduled to meet me at breakfast. I swung my travel briefcase over my shoulder and said, “I am ready!”

As I walked toward the door, I heard a familiar wise whisper. “I don’t want you to just preach a message today. I want you to BE the message today!”

I was a little stunned as my heart asked, “What…?”

Then I heard it again, “I want you to BE the message today.”

I projected, “What does that mean? I’ve studied Your Word. I have a message. I am ready for the crusade.”

He responded, “I don’t want you to preach the message today, I want you to be the message.” This conversation rattled me. I sensed an exuberant peace flood my soul that said, “Just work with me here. You are prepared, now walk with me.”

I countered, “Well, I am not sure I know how to do that Lord!”

Support an African Orphan

Support an African Orphan

My brain instinctually employed a quest to figure it out. Then I heard, “Instead of telling the story, I want you to BE the story.” A writer calls this “Show and don’t tell.”

As we rumbled down the African road in our mini-van taxi, the residual presence of God lifted me. I see myself telling the story of God’s love, and presenting His eternal plan. But, the Father was challenging me to dive in, and become the message. Become the love and let the love become me. Become the son of God and allow the Son to become me.[2] Become a participating part in His kingdom and letting the kingdom become me. So, I put my notes in my briefcase. When we arrived at the crusade I stood to BE the message.

I received an invitation that day, not only to live in my story, but to authorize my story to join His. When I say, This is My Story, faith manifests. Stories and parables are the language of the Spirit, and transmit more than words. The spirit that lives in the story communicates with every layer of creation. This is one application to the Apostle Paul’s analysis, “And to make all men see what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God, who created all things by Jesus Christ: To the intent that now unto the principalities and powers in heavenly places might be known by the church the manifold wisdom of God…”[3] When you act in love, walk in the Spirit, and exercise family life in the body of Christ, you are teaching the principalities and powers… the manifold wisdom of God. Your stories are teaching the fellowship of the mystery…hid in God, to the echelons of Angels.

NEW BOOK! BEING RELEASED NOW!

NEW BOOK!
BEING RELEASED NOW!

Remember always, the creation, and the story in the creation belong to God. He is the author, and he says, “This is My Story.” No one edits Him. Free will cannot mess up His plan. He is the rock all are broken upon.

When you hear or read a story, the same power of faith and inspiration experienced in the event is present to activate the same result in your life. A story of triumph brings a warrior’s faith. A story of freedom conveys a new level of spiritual authority. A story of healing offers hope and supernatural restoration. A story of illumination delivers breakthrough revelation. And each story turns out to be a “DO IT AGAIN WITNESS!” When you witness, and believe the power of God’s creative Word, you enter into the same miracle. The Apostle John wrote,

“And many other signs truly did Jesus in the presence of his disciples, which are not written in this book: But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing you might have life through his name.”[4]

The icon of Jesus Christ in the gospels is incomplete. Jesus would say, This is my Story. He healed more people. He taught more lessons. He did more miracles. He had more friends. He preached more messages. In fact, his story is still being written today. When you believe in Him, His story lives in you. The challenge is to believe, and let the life of Jesus do for you what he has done for millions.

A SozoLife Weekend: Columbia, SC

A SozoLife Weekend: Columbia, SC – March 20-21, 2015

SozoLife4I invite you to A SozozLife Weekend: Columbia, SC  March 20-21, 2015

Can one week-end really change your life? This weekend will be a weekend to remember. Life is not only measured by the moments that pass on the sundial, life is measured by the moments that mark our heart with God. You can map your life with these memories.

A SOZOLIFE WEEKEND is planned to give you a new GOD WORLD VIEW, give you the tools to fight the good fight of faith, show you how to resolve the unresolved conflicts in your soul, and teach you how to bring healing to others. YES, this weekend can change your life. There is no charge for the weekend, but a offering will be taken.

A friend stopped by and told me His story, and now I want you to hear a part of it.

“What do you do after you go to the altar and give your heart to Jesus? After I received Christ many years ago, I found myself without direction, and began to blow as a leaf in the wind. I did not know what to do. I asked many people during the years, “what do I do now?” They said, “Do you have a Bible?” “No.” “Then go get one.” So I went and got one, but did not understand what I read.

As a result, I had and kept a truckload of baggage. I did not know what to do with all of the garbage, so I began to be disillusioned with the churches I attended, because no one could tell me what to do with my sin, and how to change my life. As a result, I was caught between two worlds, between the bondages that were pleasurable, and I really enjoyed, and the life that I did not have any understanding of. Now, where were my friends? I didn’t have any.

After many years of breaking I moved to the mountains of western North Carolina and during the course of conversation with one of my oldest and dearest friends, I hear the word Sozo. The word was so silly sounding that it caught my attention. I said, “What is that?” And he said, “It is a process of how to deal with all of the baggage and garbage in your life, after you become a Christian.” In that moment, I knew I wanted to know more about it. And in that moment, I was pissed off and said, “How long has that been around?!” I drew out the word long to exaggerate my sense of frustration. I am sixty-one and have lived a life of pain, suffering, fear, anxiety, disappointment, and failure. It was like living hell on earth, because I had no idea about what to do next. I had been living in the misery of darkness and confusion, been through four wives, and have three sons that I haven’t seen in over twenty years. Because I did not know how to deal with all the garbage or how to live in my new life. There was no practical guide book. I needed someone to take me aside and say, “I am in the business of spiritual garbage recycling. Let me show you how to get rid of this crap and turn it into fertilizer.”

I had a desire to walk with God, but I did not have the experience of knowing how, until SozoLife. I even had a voice that came to me and said, “God hates you and that is why your life went the way it did. He wanted you to be in pain.” But the Lord used the process of SozoLife to open me to the Lord’s eternal Love, give me a way to resolve past conflicts, and show me how to walk with God. Now, I know how to hear God, I am dealing with all of the garbage in my heart and life, and I am free. Now I know what to do after you give your heart to Jesus. God is not finished with me yet, but I have more hope than I can ever remember.

If you find yourself anywhere in this story, or you know someone who is, the process given in A SOZOLIFE WEEKEND will help. This weekend will be a weekend to remember. Life is not only measured by the moments that pass on the sundial. Life is measured by the moments that mark our heart for God. You can map your life with these memories.
