Overcoming Discouragement

Cleopas and his friend should have been happy. The resurrection had just taken place! But they were sad and discouraged. Jesus personally talked to them and helped them with their discouragement. What should you do when discouraged?
  1. Try to understand why. Discouragement is often a reaction to a real or an imagined loss. It may also be because of false expectations. Ask yourself several key questions to understand why you are discouraged.
  2. Talk about your discouragement with the right people. Talk to the Lord! Also talk to someone who is spiritual.
  3. Listen to truth until you get a fresh perspective. Then get up and get moving and attack your mountain of discouragement and depression one step at a time.

What Bitterness Does (And How to Conquer It)

Have you ever been deeply hurt by someone who never made things right with you? What was your response? There are people spending fortunes trying to relieve their minds. What they really need to do is let God relieve their hearts of bitterness. Bitterness is a possibility for anyone. It is highly contagious. It is destructive. It stops spiritual growth and begins spiritual decline. It robs a Christian of his fruitfulness. It also blinds the bitter person to its presence and power. This DVD gives 7 things bitterness does.

Understanding How Homes Relate to Each Other & the Church

One of the key reasons for conflicts among different families as well as between families and churches is that people do not understand the jurisdictional lines between the "houses" God created. Each "house" must influence other "houses" in a positive manner without ever crossing over and undermining the authority of another "house." The "house" of the home must have the "church house" and the "state house" standing behind it, but the church & state must be careful to not undermine the home. Authority may at times be delegated; it must never be relinquished.

Repairing Really Rotten Relationships

Rotten relationships do not always have to remain that way! Certainly there are times when all you can do is make sure that your heart is right with the other person because their heart is never going to be right with you. But that is not always the case. The most strained relationship of your life may have the potential of developing into the most special relationship of your life if you would be willing to work on it. In Ruth and Naomi's case, Naomi should have been the one to take the initiative. But the opposite had to happen. The daughter-in-law had to be the one to reach out to the mother-in-law! Ruth didn't rebuke her mother-in-law. She simply gave love and loyalty to her no matter how Naomi responded. This DVD gives 3 ways to repair rotten relationships.

Breaking Family Curses

Exodus 34:7 teaches that there will be a propensity toward either righteousness or sin being passed down from generation to generation. In different areas of life, people are blessed and do well because of Godly family influences. In other areas they struggle because of evil family influences. Chains of bitterness, dishonesty, selfishness, pride, divorce, immorality, laziness, or rebellion pass down from grandfather to father to son to grandson, etc. Loyalty, faithfulness, kindness, honesty, joy, character, etc. also pass down! King Asa saw a curse of bitterness, stubbornness, rebellion and idolatry in his family lineage then took desperate steps to break the curse–beginning a lineage of blessings!

When Forgiveness Won't Work

There is confusion among many Christians about the matter of forgiveness because they do not realize that forgiveness has two sides. The first side is the side of the “forgiver.” Christians must forgive fully, freely, and forever. The second side is the side of the one being forgiven. To be offered forgiveness is one thing. To be able to receive the forgiveness offered is something else. Even though forgiveness is offered, FORGIVENESS WON’T WORK unless the one who has done the wrong is truly repentant. In the parable of the prodigal son, both sons were forgiven. But only one of them received forgiveness because only one of them was truly repentant! Those who encourage acceptance without repentance are really encouraging indulgence and enslavement. With repentance comes cleansing, restoration, and forgiveness.

How to Tell True Repentance

A common response when a person is first confronted with sin is defensiveness and lying. One of the worst things that can happen at that point is for him to find someone who will give him sympathy. Only true repentance provides a foundation upon which a life can be rebuilt after there have been broken dreams, hopes, and lives. Repentance does not stop all of sin’s consequences, but it can cut down on the reaping of some of them. Jesus gave us a picture of the proper attitude of repentance when He told the story of the Pharisee and the Publican. Though both were sinners, one was proud and the other humble. One was defensive, and the other offered no defense. Paul expounded further on true repentance by showing that the difference in true and false repentance relates to the difference between worldly sorrow and Godly sorrow.

How to Rebuild Broken Trust

No matter what I do, my parents will never trust me again!” “Pastor, I want to forgive my husband, but how can I ever trust him again?” “Isn’t trust the foundation of a relationship? How can we let our runaway daughter come back home if we can’t trust her?” Trust is like a beautiful vase that has been shattered into a thousand pieces. How do you get it back together? YOU DON’T TRY! Instead, you do the things you need to do, pay the price of TIME and TRUE REPENTANCE, and God Himself will perform a miracle and restore the vase in such a way that it will be as beautiful as a brand new vase! What broke the trust? Lies, deceitfulness, disloyalty, rebellion, unfaithfulness, irresponsibility, etc. What should you do? Be honest, open, truthful, sincere, accountable, loyal, humble, submissive, etc. This video also tells the story of how Dr. Davis’ daughter broke and then rebuilt her parents’ trust.

Nothing Shall Offend Them

A key verse every Christian should engraft into his life is Psalm 119:165: “Great peace have they which love thy law, and nothing shall offend them.” The Bible and human life are full of stories of people who became offended or took up someone else’s offense. True to the meaning of the word “offense,” which is “stumbling block,” those who become offended often stumble and fall or cause others to do so. David was a wise, gracious man who almost acted foolishly because he became offended at the unreasonable, ungrateful actions of the fool Nabal. But it is not only possible to get offended because of wrong actions. Many people get offended when someone does right! And some people get offended without any reason at all! For many years this was Dr. Davis’ most well known and requested message. Some consider it his most humorous message. Here you will learn the key principles necessary for Christians to live in harmony with one another.

Dig Another Well

The person who “gives in” rather than demanding his rights is usually thought of as being the weaker. In reality, the more spiritually mature person will usually be the one who yields his rights. The man who “wins” when his personal rights have been violated is really the “loser.” In Genesis 26, Isaac had settled in Gerar and needed water. He had his servants dig a well. It was long, hard, dangerous, backbreaking work. Then the herdmen of Gerar said “the water is ours.” And Isaac said to his men, “It’s alright, fellows. DIG ANOTHER WELL!” Incredibly, the same thing happened a second time! The committed Christian should always ask, “Is this for me and my rights or for God and His rights?” Defend God’s rights. Yield yours!
