Case Studies in S.L.O.W.
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 walking out the SLOW Model in the book of Joshua, and we remember those four battles with the acrostic J.O.S.H. Come join us on the trail! Helpful Links:LAST CALL for Summer Intensives: deeperwalk.com/summer-intensives Breakthrough!

Joshua & the Victorious Christian Life
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 tells you. Moving into the promised land doesn’t mean the battles end. It means fighting battles that matter and doing it God’s way.  If there’s a formula for success, it’s Trust + Obey = Victory, and the ‘how’ is the SLOW Model. As we look at Joshua as a model for living the victorious Christian life, we invite you to join us on the trail! 👉 Helpful Links:SOM Summer Intensives: deeperwalk.com/summer-intensives Breakthrough!

The Masters of S.L.O.W.
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.

Trust or Consequences
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 discover that the promised land is not only flowing with milk and honey but also filled with giants, they panic. Joshua and Caleb beg the people to trust and obey God to fulfill His promises and take care of them. But the people show they did not learn the lessons of boot camp, and they end up spending an extra 38 years in the wilderness. What God ultimately wants is not for us to follow a life of principles but a life of relationship. In this relationship, God says, ‘I will be there; you can trust Me; and I will get you through this.’ If there is a “formula” or a principle, it is to go find God, see what He wants to do, and do that. As we head into this next phase of the journey, we begin to unpack the model for what walking victoriously in the Spirit looks like. We invite you to join us on the trail! Helpful Links:Disciple Makers Forum: https://discipleship.org Disciple Makers Episode on YouTube: https://youtu.be/UrruakFvVe0?si=Fv77kv7mZMws-1UH Disciple Makers Podcast: https://disciplemakerspodcast.podbean.com/e/helping-people-to-deal-with-demonic-strongholds-feat-deeper-walk-intl/ Breakthrough!

He Covers Us
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 core to God’s solution to fixing the sin problem. It addresses the sin problem not by ending immorality but by giving us the ability to be in the presence of God. We see atonement enacted in both the Old and New Testaments, and while there is a lot of overlap, they are not the same level of atonement. In this episode, we are looking at the Day of Atonement, exploring some of the similarities and differences between the Old and New covenants, from the level of sin covered to spiritual warfare and more.  We invite you to join us on the trail! Helpful Links:Disciple Makers Episode on YouTube: https://youtu.be/UrruakFvVe0?si=Fv77kv7mZMws-1UH Disciple Makers Podcast: https://disciplemakerspodcast.podbean.com/e/helping-people-to-deal-with-demonic-strongholds-feat-deeper-walk-intl/ Breakthrough!

Holy God, Holy People
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 unseen realm, living together, caring for one another, and worshiping God. In this episode, we’re entering the levitical side of boot camp. And we’re covering a lot!What is holiness? What’s with the divine smite button? What does Aaron’s ordination teach us about our identity in Christ? When it comes to holiness, what is the connection between behavior and identity? What does this mean for the healing journey?We invite you to join us on the trail! Helpful Links:The Body, the Brain, & Breakthrough Conference: https://deeperwalkinternational.org/product/the-body-the-brain-and-breakthrough-conference/ Order Breakthrough!: https://deeperwalkinternational.org/breakthrough-5-essential-strategies-for-freedom-healing-and-wholeness  Deeper Walk Newsletter: http://tinyurl.com/DWISignUp Deeper Walk Trailblazers: https://deeperwalkinternational.org/trailblazers/Podcast Mailbox: http://tinyurl.com/OTTMailbox

The Golden Calf
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 they break camp. It’s not fun to look at the hard things, but in today’s episode, we’re looking at the incident of the Golden Calf. The Golden Calf was a direct contradiction to everything God had been teaching them thus far—the freedom, the covenant, the Tabernacle, etc. There are natural and necessary consequences that follow this incident. It gets a little scary, a little intense. But in the end we see that God’s purposes stand. He’s going to get the people as a whole to the promised land. He is a God of justice and compassion, and He invites relationship and intercession. We invite you to us on the trail!  👉 Helpful Links:Host a Watch Party!: https://tinyurl.com/BBBWatchParty The Body, the Brain, & Breakthrough Conference: https://deeperwalkinternational.org/product/the-body-the-brain-and-breakthrough-conference/ Order Breakthrough!: https://deeperwalkinternational.org/breakthrough-5-essential-strategies-for-freedom-healing-and-wholeness  Deeper Walk Newsletter: http://tinyurl.com/DWISignUp Deeper Walk Trailblazers: https://deeperwalkinternational.org/trailblazers/ Podcast Mailbox: http://tinyurl.com/OTTMailbox

He Tents With Us
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 the mountain for us to get our act together and come up to Him. He is coming straight into the center of our mess to journey with us. In many ways, all of the amazing things God has done during the Exodus event has been to bring His people to this moment: the Tabernacle. It’s a place of intimacy at the center of His people that is mobile and ready for the journey. God’s incarnational purposes are made known from Genesis to Revelation, and this Tabernacle Theology is a beautiful picture of His desire to be in an active, tangible, walking relationship with His people. He is right there in the center of our brokenness, giving provision for being in His presence despite the juxtaposition of His purity and our uncleanness. Join us on the trail as we continue deeper into an understanding of walking with God! Helpful Links:The Body, the Brain, & Breakthrough Conference: https://deeperwalkinternational.org/product/the-body-the-brain-and-breakthrough-conference/ Order Breakthrough! from DW and get a Breakthrough decal!

The Mountain of God
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 God enter into a covenant together, like a marriage.  It is a place of learning new rhythms & skills – camp life, religious habits, and more. Throughout the Old and New Testaments, we see people drawn to “the Mountain” to meet with God. It is an invitation to intimacy. As we continue deeper into the understanding of how God heals and transforms us, we hope you’ll join us on the trail! Helpful Links:The Body, the Brain, & Breakthrough Conference: https://deeperwalkinternational.org/product/the-body-the-brain-and-breakthrough-conference/ Order Breakthrough! from DW and get a Breakthrough decal!

Water, Wafers, Water, War
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 has a plan to break down their victim identity and build in them a victorious identity. Like any good boot camp, we have a marching chant to help us remember the four key events God uses to train the Israelites along the way, and it goes “Water, Wafers, Water, War.” Water: God provides when the water is bitter. Wafers: God provides when there is no food. Water: God provides when there is no water. War: God protects when the enemy attacks. What do we learn about God and the healing process from this first leg of boot camp?

The Healing Journey
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 created our victim mindset and understands why we are the way we are. He loves us too much to leave us that way and wants to take us on a transformational journey that will give us a new identity teach us to live out of that identity help us to live a victorious Christian life rather than one that is stuck in the wilderness We hope you'll join us On the Trail! P.S.

The Red Sea
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 His plan and faithfulness. God does things for us not because we earn or deserve it. What does it look like to pray in such a situation? To trust in such a situation?Helpful Links:Order Breakthrough! from DW and get a Breakthrough decal!

The Eleventh Sign
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 identity to a freedom identity.  In this episode, we talk about everything from Mephibosheth and grace to Communion and Jesus’ work on the Cross to Immanuel prayer journaling.What do all these things have to do with Passover?

Plagues, Plans, & the Tunnel of Chaos
“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 know I am Yahweh.’ We look at the very intentional structure of the signs and dwell on some practical heart lessons about who God is and how we can trust Him. Just because we experience the chaos does not mean God is callous or winging it. He cares. He is meticulous, and He has a plan. We can face deep struggle alongside God and know that He will see us through it. As we press deeper into the knowledge of who God is and how He cares for us, we hope you’ll join us on the trail! 
23:59 2/12/24
Let My People Go
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 takes action. God always has a plan, and He is not afraid of chaos. The story of Exodus contains many lessons and symbols. Some include parallels of the deep pain that launches a healing journey and parallels we see in the Gospel (e.g., Pharaoh as a symbol of sin, Slavery as a symbol of bondage to sin). As we press further in to this epic Bible account, we hope you’ll join us on the trail!

The Wilderness of Mediocrity
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 journey of rescue, redemption, covenant, growth, and victorious living. This is a long journey. A difficult journey. A worthwhile and necessary journey. And we’re going to follow along.

The Heart of Discipleship
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 why is it so important? In today’s episode, we are looking at this keyword – heart – with an Old and New Testament understanding. We hope you’ll join us on the trail!

Preparation
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 things are coming in 2024! WE’RE TAKING A BREAK not only over Christmas but also at the start of the new year, and we’ll be coming back with the same podcast you love but with *more.* Stay tuned to Stephanie’s Monday emails and Deeper Walk’s social media for updates.

Walk With God
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.  
23:09 12/11/23
High Priest
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. 
20:38 12/4/23
Forming & Filling
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.As we enter the Advent season, we’re turning our attention to the Incarnation of Christ and God’s heart and plans for this redemption story. In this episode, we specifically look at the pattern of forming and filling seen in Genesis 1. 
24:51 11/27/23
Practical Authority
What does it look like to have authority in Christ? In this episode, we discuss the legal understanding of the believer’s authority and some practical applications. 
25:33 11/20/23
Viewpoints on Authority
What does it mean for a believer to have authority in Christ? Do we have all the authority Christ has? Do we have none of it? Or is the answer somewhere between? In this episode, we discuss the authority believers have in Christ. 
25:15 11/13/23
Occult vs. Kingdom
We are a people who believe God defines reality. In the start of a new mini series on the authority of the believer, we’re talking about occult vs. Kingdom. In this episode, we’re looking at these worldviews regarding the involvement of spirits in the world and the roles of power & authority. P.S. There was a hiccup with the podcast releasing under the wrong name last week. So sorry! It was fixed, but in case there is any lingering confusion, this is the order: Episode 71: The Occult Invasion of America released October 30, 2023. Episode 72: Occult vs. Kingdom released November 6, 2023.

The Occult Invasion of America
The invasion is already here. Now what? In this 37-minute special, we address the elephant in the room. It’s Halloween season, and spiritual warfare is on many minds. What is the occult? How do we recognize it? How do we love well in the midst of it? 
36:53 10/30/23
Identity in Christ
Do you know your identity in Christ? The Gospel is not just a ticket to Heaven. It is the foundation of Discipleship. In this episode, we’re reconnecting Identity to its Gospel foundation and reviewing how it all fits together. 
31:28 10/23/23
Community Identity
“We are a people who…” In this episode, we look at the role of Community in identity formation. How does community bring the two sides of our brain together? How can we resist mistaking our malfunctions for our identity? Community is key to answering the question, “Who am I, and how is it like me to be?”
