Learning to See God in Everything
It's easy to see God when you're hearing a sermon on a Sunday, and God is pretty clear when you're studying Colossians, but how do you learn to see Him in your classroom, or your crazy co-workers? If God is truly omnipresent, He's present in every part of our lives; perhaps we just need to learn where to look.  This episode's featured song is Love Won't Give Up from Elevation Worship.

CAN WE SEE REVIVAL IN THIS GENERATION?
The next generation (students in college, high school, middle school, and younger) have the lowest rates of faith in God and desire to go to Church in the history of our country, and the highest rates of depression, suicide, anxiety. And they don't know what to do about it. Can this generation really see revival? They can, and it starts with us.  Song is See a Victory from Elevation Worship.

Don't Miss the Miraculous
No matter our background or beliefs, many of us feel overwhelmed and sad in our lives. What if we were missing the miracles in our lives by simply overlooking the things around us? And what if the "supernatural miracles" that we read and hear about were happening all around us, even as you listen to this episode? Song is There is a Cloud by Elevation Worship.  Follow me everywhere @brandongarland http://instagram.com/brandongarland https://twitter.com/brandongarland

BONUS: Walking with God (with Jon Webster)
'Walk with God' has become more of a cliche than a concrete reality in many of our lives. In this special Easter Bonus episode, I sit down with my friend @itsjonwebster to talk about some stories from his life, as well as a few biblical passages, that will help you make 'walking with God' move from a phrase you repeat to a reality you experience.

Psalm 145 (with Maya Matthews)

Protecting Your Testimony
Your testimony is the story of everything you've overcome and seen God do in your life. And the Enemy would like nothing more than to take your story. How does he try to do it, and why?

How to Spell Faith
We'd all say that we believe that God wants to do great things through us, and we all probably understand that seeing God move through us takes faith. But what does faith look like, and how do we practically exercise it?

How to Guard Your Heart
It's one of the most well-known verses in all of the Bible: "Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it" (Proverbs 4:23). It sounds profound, and it is, but how do we make this principle practical? Maybe the practical is found right beside the principle. The opening song has become one of my favorite songs ever (truly), and it just came out today. Good Grace by Hillsong United.

There’s Enough
We often view life through a lens of limitation and lack and become frustrated when we see other people being blessed because we believe that there's only so much to go around for everyone. God's Kingdom is limitless and unending, and learning to believe that there truly is enough for everyone in every area enables us to take up joy and drop jealously in every situation.    The opening and closing song is Won't Stop Now by Elevation Worship, off of their upcoming album Hallelujah Here Below, which releases on September 28, 2018.

The Greatest Ability
As people who aim to follow Jesus, we tend to feel like we need a certain measure of talent or perfection to be used by God. In this episode, we talk about the only ability God actually needs from us.    Opening and closing song is New Wine by Hillsong Worship.

Two Choices For Humanity
Often, we experience internal frustration because we're more focused on God's promise of outward fruit than on His process of obtaining it. Jesus' teaching in John 15 shows us how to fix our focus on the one thing that will actually produce fruit in and through our lives.  Opening and closing song is Do It Again by Elevation Worship.

This Changes Everything
The message that we claim to believe as Christians, that God loves broken, fallen humanity enough to leave heaven to save us by dying on the Cross and defeating sin and death by being resurrected three days after dying, should change absolutely everything about our lives. But so often, it doesn't. What's the disconnect, and how can we allow the revolutionary message of Jesus to permeate increasingly more of our lives?   The opening and closing song is The Passion by Hillsong Worship, off their new record THERE IS MORE.

Keep the Main Thing the Main Thing
There has never been a group of humans so busy and distracted as 21st Century Americans. It can be easy to start with our hearts in the right place, seeking to honor God, know His love, and build our lives around the Gospel. But how do we manage the growing number of things competing for our attention, in order to keep the main thing the main thing? Opening and Closing song is Touch of Heaven by Hillsong Worship.

My Worst Enemy (Is Me)
Voices of self-doubt and self-accusation run rampant in all of our minds, and threaten to derail us from our destiny, because ultimately, if we believe we can't we, we won't. Let's come together this Easter and walk out of the tomb of negative self-talk and into God's purposes on our lives.  Opening and closing song is Mighty Cross by Elevation Worship.

Real Love
We can only show real love once we've recieved real love, but we'll only allow ourselves to recieve love to the level that we believe ourselves worthy of love. In this episode, we look at how God's love completes us and compels us to selflessly love others.    The opening and closing song is Neon Sign by The Royal Royal. They're really good; check out their entire album, 'Rococo.'

How to Fight Fear
Fear is one thing we all experience. God's Word speaks to real things that we genuinely struggle with, and since fear is so common, it makes sense for God to talk about it consistently in the Bible.    Opening and Closing song is Won't Stop Now by Elevation Worship.

Change Your Mind
Proverbs 27:3 says that 'As a man thinketh, so he is.' The way we think determines who we are. So, how do we align our thoughts with God's, and why is it so important?   Opening and closing song is Fool's Gold by S. Carey.

Ingredients for the Impossible
God is a God of miracles, and He desires to work them in and through us. But how do we see them come to pass in our lives? In Matthew 20, two blind men ask for and receive their sight from Jesus, and in the process, show us five key factors in seeing God move in impossible ways, both in 18 AD and 2018.  The opening and closing song is Here in the Presence by Elevation Collective, featuring Israel Houghton and Sheretta Ivey.

God Dreams
In this episode, we look at the book of Nehemiah, and what the God dream in Nehemiah's heart teaches us about the ones in our hearts.   The opening and closing song is Ultralight Beam by Kanye West.

Experience God for Yourself (with Trey Gouch)
Many of us have heard stories and read passages of the miracle-working, supernatural God of the Bible, but have yet to have a personal interaction with His wonder-working power. What if miracles and truly having experiences with God wasn't just a thing of the New Testament, but a thing for the 21st century? What if the Cross wasn't meant to be the final revelation of God’s goodness, but rather an open door into a life full of experiences of His faithfulness? Scripture invites us to "taste and see that the Lord is good," but how is can we practically do it?   The opening and closing song is Tremble by Mosaic MSC.

The Greatest Danger
There is no better human life than the one that seeks to honor God in everything. But, how do we prevent ourselves from a life that outwardly appers to glorify God but in reality seeks to use God to make much of ourselves?

7 Steps To Sinning Less
There are very few people, Christian or otherwise, who would say they don't want to sin less. We all live imperfectly, and we know it, and for the most part, we genuinely want to change. What if within the narrrative of the very first sin were both the same mistakes that we make each and every time that we sin, as well as solutions that will empower us to sin less?    The opening and closing track is Resurrecting by Elevation Worship.

Living Like a Legend
Jesus' call on the lives of all who follow Him is to live as He lived (Colossians 1:27). Knowing we can't do it alone, He gives us the Holy Spirit to empower us to do it. And as we live as He lived, we point people to Him. What if the best way to point people to Jesus is to live as He lived: fully alive and called as a son or daughter?    The opening song is Swim by Valley. Check out their enitre record The Room is White, especially this song, 'You' and 'Soldier.'

Don’t Settle
Outside of following Christ, the person you marry will be the single biggest decision of your life. With the stakes being this high, the amount of high potential, quality young Christians end up settling in this area of life is shocking. How do you know what to look for in someone to date, and what does it really mean to settle? To settle on your spouse is to settle on your purpose, so how can you confidently decide who you should date? All that and more in this episode of The Rise Podcast.  The opening song is love somebody like you by joan.

The Greatest Investment
Prayer is often something that gets crowded out when life gets busy. But what if we could gain a new perspective on it, one that shows that we actually play a part in God moving in other people's lives? The opening and closing song is Super Natural by Turnover.

Rejecting Fear, Receiving Strength
At any given time, our souls only have the ability to focus on one thing. When we allow fear to sit in the foreground of our minds, we inevitably prevent ourselves from living in the strength that God wants to give us. In this meditation from the book of Zechariah, we look at how to reject fear and recieve strength.  The opening song is Everything's New by Mutemath.

The Certain Love of God
So often in life, we seem to be reaching for something that we just can't grasp. That thing is love, and though we often look for it in other poeple, we're truly searching for it from God. But how can we know for sure if He loves us, especially when there are so many tragic, painful realities in this world an in our lives? The opening song is Seasons by Hillsong Worship.
