In this Sunday morning episode, Pastor Greg Laurie offers an encouraging message from 1 Kings. With Elijah, we learn that everyone faces trials, but we can trust God to show us the way through them.

How to Handle Discouragement | Spiritual Attacks

5/20/2022
When people stand against us, it’s often because of what we stand for. Some people can’t stand people of faith, but they tolerate just about everything else. We have to remember that the attack is nothing personal, it’s something spiritual. Today on A NEW BEGINNING, Pastor Greg Laurie helps us see what’s behind that hostility. We’ll look at a time in the Old Testament when a great work of God faced open hostility. And we’ll see how we can compose and conduct ourselves just as our forefathers...

Dealing with Criticism | Resilience

5/19/2022
Winston Churchill, during WWII, spoke at the school he once attended. Tradition records his entire speech as just 17 words: 'Young men, never give up. Never give up! Never give up!! Never, never, never-never-never-never!' Historians point out the words were slightly different, and the speech notably longer, but it’s still good advice. And today on A NEW BEGINNING, Pastor Greg Laurie points out we must display that same kind of resilience. Listen on harvest.org --- Learn more and subscribe to...

Dealing with Criticism | Detractors

5/18/2022
When you’re listening to the radio, you hear one station at a time. There may be dozens and dozens up and down the dial, but your tuner helps you hear just one. Well, today on A NEW BEGINNING, Pastor Greg Laurie points out there are voices of opposition calling to us as we walk with the Lord. We need an internal, spiritual tuner that helps us hear just the voice of God. We’ll look to the example of Nehemiah and his wall builders today in learning how we can ignore our detractors.

Wall Builders | Unified

5/17/2022
In the book of Acts, we read that the believers were all “in one accord.” In one accord. No, not in a Honda . . . they were unified. They were in agreement. They were in harmony. They were a team. Are we today? Pastor Greg Laurie addresses that issue here on A NEW BEGINNING. We’re looking at a fine example of teamwork recounted for us in the book of Nehemiah. They had a great task to be done, they faced great opposition, but they dedicated their great efforts to a great God. Listen on...

Wall Builders | Service

5/16/2022
When we attend church in person, we walk on a freshly-swept sidewalk . . . we may be greeted by someone . . . maybe handed a bulletin . . . we pass an usher or two on our way to our seat . . . then we’re led in worship, and we’re taught from God’s Word. You know, a lot of people made themselves available for all that to happen. Today on A NEW BEGINNING, Pastor Greg Laurie wonders what you’re willing to do for someone else. It’s an encouraging message today on how we can say yes to service...

“There’s a New Kid in Town” | Sunday Message

5/15/2022
During our spiritual walk, we will have to move past obstacles—which can even be ourselves—to be faithful to God’s calling for us. In today's Sunday episode, Pastor Greg Laurie speaks on Elijah, a man who struggled with fear, loneliness, anger, and doubt—just like us but overcame these burdens to bring light to a dark culture.

How to Be a Successful Leader | Perseverance

5/13/2022
Weight lifters know that if there’s no pain, there’s no gain. If you’re lifting weights that are easy and effortless, you’re not helping yourself. But if there’s resistance, if it’s tough going, that’s a good sign. Today on A NEW BEGINNING, Pastor Greg Laurie says the same applies to our work for the Lord. We may face resistance, we may face opposition from the enemy. That’s not the time to run and hide, not the time to give up. We’ll learn from Nehemiah, that means it’s time to buckle down....

How to Be a Successful Leader | Prayer

5/12/2022
A modern combustion engine does one thing. It moves a piston. But the piston is connected to a crankshaft . . . and the crankshaft to a transmission . . . and the knee bone is connected to the leg bone and pretty soon your car is moving. Today on A NEW BEGINNING, Pastor Greg Laurie points out that prayer moves things. And today, we’ll see we may be the pray-er . . . or we may be the thing that gets moved. But wherever we fit, let’s see today how we can put our efforts “in gear” for the Lord....

The Rebuilt Life | Accepting Blessings

5/11/2022
When a cashier gives you change back, do you take some of it and put in your pocket? No, you take it all. When you file your taxes, do you tell the IRS to keep your tax refund for themselves? Probably not. If something belongs to us, we’ll take it . . . thank you very much. Today on A NEW BEGINNING, Pastor Greg Laurie points out the blessings and promises God has made available to us. Many of us have never taken advantage of them – maybe we don’t even know what they are. Let’s learn today....

The Rebuilt Life | Christians in Ministry

5/10/2022
Ministry, essentially, is a “to do list” from God. Once we’ve come to the Lord, our sins are forgiven and our names are written in the Book of Life, what’s next? The Lord has a few suggestions. And whether we stand at a pulpit or a drill press, whether we deliver babies or bottled water, whether we work inside or outside the home, God has work for us to do right where we are. From the book of Nehemiah, today on A NEW BEGINNING, Pastor Greg Laurie brings us solid counsel. Listen on...

Angels and Demons | Satan's Tactics

5/5/2022
Ever been the target of a scam? Many of us have, some without even realizing it. None of the scammers admit they’re trying to rip you off. They play upon your fear . . . or your kindness.
