What does it look like to move forward into a life of freedom and continued healing? Now that we have completed the Exodus journey, learned our boot camp lessons, and entered the promised land, it's time to walk out our victorious life in the Spirit. In this episode, we're looking at four case studies for […]

The wilderness is over! Joshua has taken charge, and it’s time to leave the manna behind and live off the fruit of the land God has for them. The lessons of boot camp are all coming together in Joshua. Victory comes when you fight the battles God asks you to fight how and when He […]

Moses and Joshua were practiced in walking with God — stopping and seeking Him, listening to Him, obeying Him, and watching what happened when they did—or didn’t. In this episode, we’re looking at the transition of leadership from Moses to Joshua and walking with God into the promised land. Come join us on the trail! […]

When we find ourselves stuck with consequences we can’t change, are we going to be angry and bitter about it? Are we going to seek God in the midst of it? In this episode, we are breaking down camp and setting out with the people of Israel toward the promised land. But when the people […]

We don’t have to earn God’s presence. In Christ, it is a gift! When we’re on a healing journey, it is easy to feel dirty and unclean. But Christ has done the work to make us clean so that the Holy Spirit can live within us, so we can have relationship with God. Atonement is […]

What does it mean to be holy? The healing journey we’ve been on with the people of Israel has been a process of dismantling their old identity and creating a new one. This involves creating a new culture. With a new culture comes a new Law — rituals, protocols, and principles for interacting with the […]

We have been on a victory journey with the people of Israel, one where they learn to die to their old identity, rise to their new identity, walk with God, and live in community. They’re about to leave their boot camp in the wilderness and head toward the promised land. Alas, something tragic happens before […]

We don’t have to be whole & healed to have intimacy with God. Last week, we looked at the Mountain of God as a model of covenant relationship. This week, we get to watch God provide the next, incredible step toward a lifestyle of intimacy with Him. God is not waiting at the top of […]

We’ve made it to camp! During God’s two-year boot camp for the people of Israel, about a year was spent in one location: the Mountain of God. Why the Mountain? It is a place of encounter, where the people of Israel see and experience God. It is a place of relationship, where the people and […]

It's time for boot camp. We like acrostics around here, but are you ready to learn a marching song? In this episode, we are on the trail with the people of Israel as God leads them to the Mountain of God. God knows they need to learn to trust Him for their survival, and He […]

Last episode we witnessed the miraculous rescue of the people of Israel at the Red Sea. They're finally free. Now what? In this episode, before walking with the people of Israel into the wilderness, we're pulling together a vision of the journey as a whole. God sees us when we are oppressed and groaning. He knows what has […]

All is lost if God doesn’t show up. In this episode, we look at the original “Red Sea Moment.” The people of Israel are trapped between a sea and an army. There is no earthly way they will survive, and they know it. Despite their fear and lack of faith, God shows up according to […]

Passover. It stands apart not just as the final sign in Yahweh’s confrontation with His people’s oppressors but also as a theologically significant climactic event that we continue to celebrate today. With this event, the people of Israel prepare to embark on the start of their freedom journey. This is a journey from a slavery […]

“But Pharaoh said, ‘Who is the LORD that I should obey His voice and let Israel go? I do not know the LORD, and besides, I will not let Israel go.” (Exodus 5:2 NASB) Pharaoh asks. Yahweh answers. In this episode, we discuss the “Ten Plagues” narrative, throughout which God reiterates ‘so that they may […]

The Hero’s beloved has been captured and abused, and He will not let it stand. He is coming not only to rescue her but to humiliate her abuser. In this episode, we press into the heavy beginning of the Exodus story. The people of Israel are groaning under ruthless oppression, but God hears them and […]

Season Two!! On the Trail is now on video, and we are starting a new series. In this new series we are looking at the Exodus story. The people of Israel are groaning in a state of generational slavery and abuse. God hears their cry and instigates a rescue mission that unfolds into an epic […]

What does demon manifestation look like? Can you forgive God? These and more we’ll be addressing as we answer your listener questions in this week’s episode. We hope you’ll join us on the trail!

Have you encountered discipleship that gave you a picture of what it looks like to be a Christian on the outside, but it didn’t seem to have answers for what was happening on the inside? At Deeper Walk, our mission is to make Heart-Focused Discipleship the norm for Christians everywhere. What is heart-focused discipleship and […]

In the first episode of 2024, we are talking about the three levels of breakthrough and the 5 “engines” or factors that need to be addressed in any breakthrough journey. We also have some exciting news for the near future!

In the final episode of 2023, we are wrapping up the Advent & Incarnation series with a look at the two-way street of preparation. How has God prepared for us? How do we prepare for Him? As we wrap up this series and the year, we hope you’ll join us on the trail! Also! New […]

God wants to walk with us. In this week’s episode, we continue discussing the Incarnation by looking at this incredible truth that God wants us to be in relationship with Him. This is a listening, conversational relationship characterized by trust and obedience, where He seeks us and we seek Him.

God understands our weakness. The incarnation paved the way for Jesus Christ to become our High Priest, so we can approach God boldly and find the mercy and grace we need. What does it mean for Jesus Christ to be our High Priest? (And who was Melchizedek?) We discuss this and more in today’s episode. […]

Has your life ever felt chaotic or empty? From Genesis 1 onward, God has shown us His purposes for bringing order and fullness to our lives.
