Week 12~4th

I write this a little late this week. Saturday’s race was number 12 of the 18 race weekends this year. We practiced really well. I had joked with the team that in the race I would drive around the outside, go to the front and win by a straight away.

Heat Race.
Started 4th. The battle up front was pretty intense so I held back intentionally because I didn’t see any point in wrecking anything. Finished 4th.

In the main I started outside Natalie on the front row. I got a good jump and took the lead lap one. Then I drove away just like my plan, for 38 laps.

Dan Moore got into Natalie and Natalie went around, bringing out the caution. The green-white-checkered finish should have enabled me to close the deal, but it would not be. Naima and I had contact and I went around, finishing 4th.

My car is super good for this weekend, and I am pumped to get back at it.


Dear Rock Church,

Attack is directly associated to our progress, not our circumstance. We are where we are because of what we’ve overcome and the breaks we’ve had. The attack is only happening right now, not for our present, but because of our future.

I think the enemy wants the believer to draw back right now, sell properties, forfeit square footage and give up on ground already taken. Yes, there are times when retreat is a must, but there are more times when it’s time to fight!

What has always made our church give huge amount of resources was our ability to not just be a Sunday church, but to minister 24/7. I think the enemy would have any church capable of impacting a generation draw back, but I say NO WAY.

We need to push right now. We need to push our attitude to a new place of taking ground, not giving it up. We need to push our giving, serving and worship to higher heights. We need to push the envelope of resources and tap the reserves. It’s all in, not some in.

Here is precisely where to pray in regards to warfare. Pray that our legs will not fail, that our hearts will not callous, that our minds will not forget, that our hands will be available, that our towels will never run out, that our water is refreshing, that our campuses are full of hope, that our cities look to us, that our leaders faint not, that our money multiply, that our people be lifted, and that our provision follows a cause.

These are the weapons as we fight: Vision and Giving. Have the courage to be a part of a vision larger than yourself and have the faith to underwrite that vision! God will not leave you hanging as He has already won the battle on your behalf. He has done his part, now do yours.

Pressing the Mark,

…that take care of people.

Dear Rock Church,

For me, this involves taking care of my teams. There are so many who make The Rock Church possible. They give of themselves selflessly for the purposes of Jesus and the local church. It’s really amazing when you think about it.

There are teams at our church needing prayer, encouragement, and building. Catch them doing right things, living out the core values of the Word of God and our church. Take care of the ones whom take care of people. The ones who meet the needs of people in the trenches of church work, these are the ones whom need our care, love and words of kindness also.

Our people are the most precious ones we have. Plan parties for them, write about them on your blogs, talk about them with your friends, put there faces on your prayer walls, type about them on facebook, twitter and elsewhere. The people of The Rock Church are priceless.

Pressing the Mark,

Jeff Knight
