Bringing Our Worship with Tomi Favored is a place of harmonizing the people of God back to Him through His Word; spoken and sung.
Each episode, the Nigerian-American songwriter, recording artist, author, & speaker shares from the Bible, life experiences, & music, to facilitate reconnecting back to God.
Many of us have questioned God’s existence or stopped believing at some point in time. It’s often been because of misunderstandings we were taught, or misrepresentations of Him by people.
When we clarify our doubts however, & discover Jesus, worship will come easily...
One realization in Christendom that has such great potential to humble us, keep us teachable, and make us gracious towards others is this: we don’t know everything! Today, we discuss some of the ramifications of only knowing in part...
Many thanks to all our essential workers during the Covid Lockdown! Also, prayers and love to those whose jobs may have been deemed non-essential but who themselves are beautifully essential to us all! In today’s podcast however, we discuss how in God’s salvation economy, the ONLY essential worker is God Himself!
Yes God is a God who judges; and He does so justly. But in times when we see God’s judgement being poured out, should we be the kinds of Christians who love seeing God’s wrath, or hope for His mercy in the midst of it all?
Essentially, you can bring Jesus 5 loaves and 2 fish...and he’ll use it to feed thousands. When you bring what you have to offer to God, it’s not about that thing; but your bringing it for His anointing to multiply it and bring testimonies.
Whenever you see something excellent, know that it did not happen by accident. It was deliberate and intentional; the work of an intelligent, calculated mind for some time before the outcome is observed.
Often for us believers, our problem is not that we don’t believe in the person of Jesus Christ or don’t trust God... it’s that on a day to day, situation to situation basis, we just really need help bolstering our faith.
James 4:13-15 Come now, you who say, "Today or tomorrow we will go into such and such a town and spend a year there and trade and make a profit" yet you do not know what tomorrow will bring. What is your life? For you are a mist that appears for a little time and then vanishes. Instead you ought to say, "If the Lord wills, we will live and do this or that."
One of our scriptures today is Ecclesiastes 6:11 which admonishes us to sow our seed in the morning and the evening; then to not let our hands be idle since we don’t know which will succeed. Essentially, we need to sow and then keep working! Let’s talk about this...
A fruit from a tree does not feed the other fruit. It feeds people outside of the tree and something different from other fruit of its kind. Often, we sit in the same circle wondering why we’re not effective; when we should be going into the world and reaching out to NEW people.
The goal of this podcast is harmonizing the people of God back to Him through His word; spoken and sung. In today’s podcast, I share 5 of my songs with you that I think will bless you if you meditate on the words.
You could hold on to that grudge for a lifetime... but as someone once said, a lack of forgiveness is like drinking poison and expecting the other person to die. You’re holding yourself back in life when you don’t let things go.
Someone once said (I’m paraphrasing) : the grave is the wealthiest place on earth because therein lies many a soul which has gone without giving the solutions they had to the world. In today’s episode, we discuss how not to be one of those who leaves without becoming dynamic and realizing your purpose.
There are three battles every individual fights during their lifetime: A sin nature inherent in all of us from birth, the negative influences and challenges of the fallen world we’ve been born into, and the supernatural being Satan, the literal adversary of every human God created to inherit His promises. You must know which you’re fighting at different times, and how to address the conflict.
Does seeing money physically go down the drain bother you? Why? Because you place a certain value on those pieces of paper... because others agree with you that there is an existing value to that piece of paper which transcends toilet paper. In 2020, you need to develop value; not just usefulness.
Often, those of us who want to be very spiritual struggle with what to do in life; we struggle when it comes to work because we wonder if what we’re doing is “God’s will.” Purpose is one thing, but with work, is it specified?
Happy new year!! 2020 is here! It’s going to be amazing... it can, and it will. God is still God, He is on the throne, and you’ve been given a new beginning. The reset button has been pressed and this is the year your life gets better as you allow God to work in you!
When we hear 2020, we think 2020 vision. Well, the year 2020 can indeed be a year of clarity and vision; but only if we let go of so many things that cloud our objectivity, focus, & plans. Perhaps, they’re failures, hurts, offenses, or doubts... whatever they are, we need to let them go so we can see clearly anew.
What happens when you don’t have a bunch of money for the holidays? When you can’t go shopping and give all those presents expected? When you’re literally broke? Should your value come from what’s in your bank account?
We always ask what Christmas means to us... the better question is what does the birth of Christ into the world mean to God? Today we discuss Jesus, how Santa isn’t the reason for the season, and Eternal Security, which is a major reason for Christ’s advent during this period called Christmas. We also discuss how commemorating Christ’s physical iteration on earth, accurate timing or not, is like a worldwide annual birthday celebration for the King of kings.
1 Samuel 23:1-14 tells us a story where God gives counsel to David about something that would have happened had David not made a wiser decision. Essentially, God gave David foreknowledge to give him a chance to exercise wisdom.
Life can be really down-casting at times; and it’s so easy to develop a heart full of anger, sadness, bitterness and depression. The cure, however, is often simpler than we think: an attitude of gratitude.
A time is coming when the world will get exactly what it wants... a world without “pesky” Christians...constantly trying to tell them how to live or who to believe. But they’ll realize they don’t like the outcome.
Often the things we see in the physical world mirror spiritual concepts. The concept of royalties essentially is receiving reward for things done in the past...passive income earning. Spiritually, God gives us the same assurance...that He doesn’t forget our good works and will reward!
Often, we get caught up in our personal issues that we forget there’s an entire world out there with agendas & problems; we forget there’s even a supernatural world where we are both the “pawns and prize” as Chuck Missler used to say... in today’s podcast we discuss having a worldview.
The Bible says: “...let no one despise your youth...” So many young people are confused, bullied, fearful, and then become the bullies, the hateful, and individuals entirely unsure of who they are or what the future holds; because in their youth, they believe the lies. In today’s podcast, I address young people in hopes of encouraging them to wake up and see that they’re more than all that...
Is there a difference between inhabiting the kingdom of God and inheriting the kingdom of God? In part one of this topic on today’s podcast episode, we clarify several things about salvation to help us answer this question.
As you study the Bible and want to learn more about God, it’s wise to listen to counsel, teaching, and research from other people to expand your knowledge and understanding. In this episode, I share some of the people to whom I listen.
We won’t all always be on the same page; even as Christians. And God is aware of the diversity of personalities He created, the diversities in intelligence and aptitudes in His family... but His instruction to us has not changed: Love one another. Even when we disagree. Today, we discuss how we are to disagree agreeably, and so on.
In today’s podcast, we discuss the issue of sin that is behind people only seeing the color of people’s skin; also how the grace of God is the thing that can harmonize races of people one to another, and to Himself.
We have limited time... here on earth... our days are numbered, and it is our reality. So, what do we do in that time? What should the understanding of our pending expiration inspire in our lives today? We discuss that in today’s podcast.
Many people think predestination in the Christian context means that God likes some people, and wants to save them; all the while NOT liking some others, and thus predestining them to damnation. This mindset is false and in today’s podcast, we explain... enjoy knowing you are loved!
Today’s episode is a message I shared at Covenant Chapel, Toronto for the Visionaries Youth Recharge conference. The way for us all to recharge and continually deal with the circumstances of life is to stay connected to God and His inexhaustible power.
The church has inadvertently supplied many creative artists and talent to the secular world over time... is it any wonder now that God is seemingly saving souls from the secular world and causing them to proclaim Him? In this podcast episode we discuss Kanye West, Michael Jackson, Nebuchadnezzar and many others!
The story of the plagues of Egypt has so much packed into it. We try in today’s podcast to unravel some of the hidden messages there and discuss how there are types and foreshadowing in the Old Testament for the New Testament.
God has called us to be witnesses and ambassadors of Him...but we can't go getting ourselves thrown out of life's courtroom as witnesses because we chose not to compose ourselves respectfully, and with compassion to the jury. It is possible to be very right, but wrong in the approach. It is also possible to be very wrong, but right in the approach.
The dehumanization campaign against any group of people is the precursor to the genocide of that group of people. It doesn’t please God, and worship is practically unacceptable when those He created in His image and likeness are used or abused as though they were mere objects...
The grace of God is so awesome! The moment we begin to comprehend its extent in our lives, our whole lives will change, worship will become easier, and love for God practically inevitable. In today’s podcast, hopefully we can try to scrape the surface of it...
Without a doubt, we go through seasons of siege and bombardment. We have challenges and trials in this world...but we must stay encouraged. The saying that “this too shall pass” is true and with Christ, we have to remember that God’s got us :)
“Without counsel, purposes are disappointed. But in the multitude of counselors, they are established.” Proverbs 15:22 In today’s podcast, we discuss receiving counsel and the importance of doing so as we traverse life and purpose. We discuss how God is interested in our success in fulfilling purpose and thus gives us advice to allow ourselves good counsel.
