The Loudest Roar: Living in the Unshakable Victory of Christ

Take heart, my friends. The enemy’s roar is but a whisper in the presence of our mighty God. In The Loudest Roar, you’ll marvel at the power, majesty, and authority of our Lord Jesus and learn how to stand in the unshakable victory He’s already won for you.

Read an excerpt

In that victory, you will:

– Discern God’s voice over the lies of the enemy.

– Stand firm in faith rather than give way to fear.

– Dwell in the cover of God’s armor over you and your

loved ones.

– Keep your thoughts captive to the truth.

– Find victory over cycles of sin in your life.

God’s roar over you will become your roar, diminishing the lies of the enemy . . . to a whisper.

In the Studio with Shane & Shane Part 2

Misty Phillip sits down with musicians and worship leaders Shane and Shane in this two-part episode of the By His Grace podcast. Shane and Shane’s music has deeply affected Misty’s walk with the Lord. It was a huge treat to sit down with them in their studio in Dallas earlier this year to record the stories behind their worship music. In this episode we discuss the Worship Initiative, a subscription-based membership community to equip the church, and it’s musicians. We talk about faith and obedience. 

Shane Everitt

“When we when we originally started the Worship Initiative we just wanted to equip the church.”

“Doing a songwriting class with a small university down on the south side of town here for a few years and I think in that process we kind a realized there’s a there’s a pretty deep need.”

“The younger generation in the church we’re pretty scripturally illiterate and so I think that was kind of a burden for us.”

“There’s a lack of not just like Biblical literacy, but like understanding of who Jesus is.”

“We wrapped the songs in scripture we write devotionals.”

“We wanted to see people love the Lord.”

“Take the vocation of of leading songs serious. Like to try  and put that the weight of the mantle of the position on the shoulders of people. We don’t need song leaders we need pastors to put put language teach people how to pray through song, and that’s really what we’ll do you wanna do now. We want the body to be healthy.”

“We want the word of Christ to dwell richly in the bride.”

Psalm 2 “It is such a good reminder every time you know that the Lord is our shepherd and we don’t have to want.”

Shane Barnard

“I’ve been singing a song that we it’s always kind of the newest songs because I was your favorite but you can’t really get this on Spotify we just released a video on YouTube it’s a song and I wrote kind of with the with the church of the Ukraine in mind about fighting a battle that gods already won. We don’t know what you’re doing but we know what you’ve done”

What is the Lord speaking to you?

“My purpose is a person, and His name is Jesus.”

“Being faithful is what He wants us to do.”

“It is at just living a life of faithfulness tday by day versus finding my value and the pursuit of this or that. All of those things are real but they’re just real bad gods, not necessarily wrong, but they don’t save you or anyone else.”

“In God’s billions of thoughts and all the billions of things he’s orchestrating it one moment the best way for me to glorify God may look like that.”

“Okay you’re gonna go hard for a few years and you’re gonna be upside down cross and that’s the best way for me to get glory, but it’s not just got to get the glory, but that’s it for your ultimate joy.”

“Trust in a good God and that’s why it’s it’s okay and just lean into the thought that God‘s in control and he is good. ”

“it’s all where we find our value, you know, it’s like and if my value in my worth is found in Jesus I am completely free to lay down my life with no expectation of return.”

Scripture Reference

“Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God”. – Colossians 3:16 ESV

John 21 ESV

Jesus Appears to Seven Disciples

21 After this Jesus revealed himself again to the disciples by the Sea of Tiberias, and he revealed himself in this way. Simon Peter, Thomas (called the Twin), Nathanael of Cana in Galilee, the sons of Zebedee, and two others of his disciples were together. Simon Peter said to them, “I am going fishing.” They said to him, “We will go with you.” They went out and got into the boat, but that night they caught nothing.

Just as day was breaking, Jesus stood on the shore; yet the disciples did not know that it was Jesus. Jesus said to them, “Children, do you have any fish?” They answered him, “No.” He said to them, “Cast the net on the right side of the boat, and you will find some.” So they cast it, and now they were not able to haul it in, because of the quantity of fish. That disciple whom Jesus loved therefore said to Peter, “It is the Lord!” When Simon Peter heard that it was the Lord, he put on his outer garment, for he was stripped for work, and threw himself into the sea. The other disciples came in the boat, dragging the net full of fish, for they were not far from the land, but about a hundred yards[a] off.

When they got out on land, they saw a charcoal fire in place, with fish laid out on it, and bread. 10 Jesus said to them, “Bring some of the fish that you have just caught.” 11 So Simon Peter went aboard and hauled the net ashore, full of large fish, 153 of them. And although there were so many, the net was not torn. 12 Jesus said to them, “Come and have breakfast.” Now none of the disciples dared ask him, “Who are you?” They knew it was the Lord. 13 Jesus came and took the bread and gave it to them, and so with the fish. 14 This was now the third time that Jesus was revealed to the disciples after he was raised from the dead.

Jesus and Peter

15 When they had finished breakfast, Jesus said to Simon Peter, “Simon, son of John, do you love me more than these?” He said to him, “Yes, Lord; you know that I love you.” He said to him, “Feed my lambs.” 16 He said to him a second time, “Simon, son of John, do you love me?” He said to him, “Yes, Lord; you know that I love you.” He said to him, “Tend my sheep.”17 He said to him the third time, “Simon, son of John, do you love me?”Peter was grieved because he said to him the third time, “Do you love me?” and he said to him, “Lord, you know everything; you know that I love you.” Jesus said to him, “Feed my sheep. 18 Truly, truly, I say to you, when you were young, you used to dress yourself and walk wherever you wanted, but when you are old, you will stretch out your hands, and another will dress you and carry you where you do not want to go.”19 (This he said to show by what kind of death he was to glorify God.) And after saying this he said to him, “Follow me.”

Jesus and the Beloved Apostle

20 Peter turned and saw the disciple whom Jesus loved following them, the one who also had leaned back against him during the supper and had said, “Lord, who is it that is going to betray you?” 21 When Peter saw him, he said to Jesus, “Lord, what about this man?” 22 Jesus said to him, “If it is my will that he remain until I come, what is that to you? You follow me!”23 So the saying spread abroad among the brothers[b] that this disciple was not to die; yet Jesus did not say to him that he was not to die, but, “If it is my will that he remain until I come, what is that to you?”

24 This is the disciple who is bearing witness about these things, and who has written these things, and we know that his testimony is true.

25 Now there are also many other things that Jesus did. Were every one of them to be written, I suppose that the world itself could not contain the books that would be written.

In the Studio with Shane & Shane

Misty Phillip sits down with musicians and worship leaders Shane and Shane in this two-part episode of the By His Grace podcast. Shane and Shane’s music has deeply affected Misty’s walk with the Lord. It was a huge treat to sit down with them in their studio in Dallas earlier this year to record the stories behind their worship music. The band consists of Shane Barnard (vocals, acoustic guitar) and Shane Everett (vocals). We go behind the music to discuss their upbringings, testimonies, and how faith has impacted their journey. 

Shane Barnard

Shane Barnard talks about growing up on the West coast with a wild gold-digging adventurous cowboy with a gold pan and a gun. His mom was catholic, and they occasionally attended church. They migrate from California to Texas. In the eighth grade, he was on the roof of his house in West Texas, where the stars filled the sky. He looked up and encountered God, who captivated his heart. Shane compares the experience to Psalm 8. 

Upon sneaking into a Bible church to play basketball, he heard it’s a simple gospel that God loves him regardless of what he’d done and that he could be forgiven where he gave his life to the Lord. One day he picked up a guitar and began leading small groups singing and praying to God. Shane’s entire family came to Christ. After years of sharing the gospel, at 65 years old, the scales fell off his Father’s eyes, and he became a believer.

Shane Everitt

Shane Everitt is Texas, born and bred. His Grandfather was a very religious deacon in a Baptist church, and his Father rebelled. Shane grew up with a Father in rebellion, but his Grandfather always made him go to summer camp each year. Every year Shane got baptized but never had a saving knowledge of Jesus. He grew up around the church, but it wasn’t until college that he had a transforming relationship with Jesus. He learned he could sing by joining the choir to fulfill a needed art credit. 

The Shane’s met in college at Texas A&M. Everritt sang in bars throughout college to make ends meet. One night he was sitting at the end of the stage waiting to be paid when the lights came on. Under the neon, it looked one way, but when the lights came on, the reality of the bar was illuminated. The Lord used this image to reveal the condition of his heart, and Shane began weeping uncontrollably. The next day, he went to church, where he gave his life to Christ and was radically transformed. The following Sunday, he sang in the choir; the rest was history.

We discuss the creative process and how they’ve defined their roles. Barnard turned to the psalms to be a balm for his soul. Everitt does the management and business side. 

Scripture Reference

“O Lord, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth!

You have set your glory above the heavens. Out of the mouth of babies and infants, you have established strength because of your foes, to still the enemy and the avenger. When I look at your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon, and the stars, which you have set in place, what is man that you are mindful of him, and the son of man that you care for him? Yet you have made him a little lower than the heavenly beings and crowned him with glory and honor. You have given him dominion over the works of your hands; you have put all things under his feet, all sheep and oxen, and also the beasts of the field, the birds of the heavens, and the fish of the sea, whatever passes along the paths of the seas. O Lord, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth!” – Psalm 8 ESV
