"Wait patiently for the Lord.
Be brave and courageous."
Psalm 27:14 NLT

2016 Highlights


What does it mean to be brave?

Our culture would tell us that it’s standing up for yourself, not caring what others think, and fighting for whatever you’re passionate about.

With Jesus, we can let all that go.

The beauty of the Good News is that we’re not doing this on our own. 
Christ is in us, but we are also in Him. Trusting in His lion-hearted strength
on our behalf: that’s true bravery.

Sometimes it means fighting, and sometimes it means surrendering. 
It’s holding on, and it’s letting go.
It’s speaking up, and it’s also choosing to be silent.
Sometimes it means getting up one more time.
Other times, it means laying something down.

If you have Jesus, you have everything. His arms are always open to you. Even if you try to walk this life on your own (again), His hand is still there, holding tightly to yours and helping you navigate the rocky places. 
He’ll never leave your side. 

 

THAT, DEAR GIRL, IS WHY YOU CAN BE BRAVE.


We had an amazing time at
Divine 2015!

Enjoy these stories from ladies who attended last year's conference.

 

"I wanted to send a thank you to you and your team for ALL the hard work that is put in to Host Divine Conferences. I want to specifically encourage you – that during the conference many God moments take place – that touch hearts and lives in ways that are countless.

I want to thank you for two moments that have greatly impacted my heart and life.

Some of you may recall that I was the blessed recipient of the Early Bird Door prize at Conference Two -  may I note here that there was only one jewelry prize at the Conference.

Just these last two months,  I have been personally on a journey of Heart repair in which our Loving Heavenly Father has had me meditating on Is. 62:3, “Jesus says you are so beautiful, and so prosperous to be thought of as a crown of glory and honour in the hand of the Lord, a royal diadem exceedingly Beautiful in the hand of your God.” My life journey has had me greatly doubting my beauty. At Divine I was extravagantly blessed with the ever so pretty and sparkling Swarovski necklace – God, through this prize, gave me Jewels – I have been overwhelmed with the love that prize represents to me.

In addition –  God so lovingly adds another layer – the note waiting for me on my chair stated- "Daughter, you have a bright light that needs to shine. Shine to a lost and hurting world, you are a JEWEL I have made to shine My Glory!  Is 60:1" My heart has been so strengthened by these two moments – I can hardly put it into words.

Beth and Divine Team – you are impacting lives for God’s Glory – continue to know that in your hearts. Each of you, I think will have a Jewel in your crown in eternity representing Divine!

God will richly bless each of you."


"Thank you for Divine, it does bless so many women.

Heidi's message really helped me as I have always seen myself like that, but not so high up as second place.

Wow I never thought that I was doing anything other than being honest with myself about myself. Now I can see it in a different light.

No more of that sort of talk from me to myself. I shall share with other women now that this has really hit home to me.

This conference was really different for me as I stepped out big time. I sat by myself, not with church friends. The seat given to me was perfect.

Another first for me - I asked to have my pic taken with other people , I never do that as I never like how I look.

I had an opportunity to speak with so many women that I didn’t know and prayed and shared with them. It was simply wonderful.

Thank you for being obedient to the Lord when He showed you what to do."


"I want to tell the ladies from your church who were involved in Divine Conference, that it has changed my life. I am sure you have heard many testimonies from women, but I just had to say thank you.  

I have been walking with the Lord for 16 years now and at your conference, God met me. He gently confronted some lies of the enemy I had been believing and I have been set free. I know the glory goes to God and to Him I am very grateful, but you all should know that your efforts, hard work, generosity, and excellence to detail were also instrumental in my being able to receive from the Lord.

When we arrived, and the men were directing parking, their welcome and smiles and honour I felt from them touched my heart, DEEPLY. Then when I saw the red carpet and the men in suits to greet us, I was overwhelmed. I had difficulty even putting my foot on the carpet and honestly, had thoughts that I shouldn't. I was stunned and rocked to my core. As we walked throughout your church the ladies were so warm and genuine, I was able to process what I was feeling in my heart, because it was so very different than what I have experienced in my life. Please don't get me wrong, I am not abused, but I have not been treated with such honour before and made to feel of such importance that I didn't know how to handle it. The tears were flowing out of my eyes and I wasn't sure why. God was putting His gentle finger on an area where I needed His Truth.  

The entire conference made me feel of great importance and value to the Father. When I heard Heidi speak about the zip line and leaving the platform of lies, I am a very visual learner and her pictures and demonstrative manner solidified the Father's heart to me. I had been believing lies for a very long time and I didn't want to stay there any more. I had a heart revelation of my value as God's Masterpiece, a life-changing revelation and I will never be the same. I decided to leave the platform."


"Thanks very much for the wonderful conference we just attended. Divine 2015 was such a blessing to me and also to my sisters from River Of Life. The spirit of excellence was evident from the invitation package we received right through the welcome at the doors and then throughout the entire conference. But it was not a hard edged excellence, everything was lined inside out with grace, warm smiles, and even a spirit of intimacy. The red carpet was a nice touch and we felt like princesses in our Daddy's court. I was particularly blessed by the guest speaker Ann Pretorius whose amazing testimony and down-to-earth messages were truly inspiring. Her message demands a response and we must respond.

Finally I must mention your generosity. I have been to many conferences, Christian and secular and I have to say, your generosity is one of a kind. I loved the snack on Friday night and the thoughtful service of your handsome young men. Everything was so abundant and so generous as it should be in our Father's house. 

I loved the fact that the young ladies were an integral part of the proceedings. Heidi was a great emcee and speaker and the Five for Five was a blast. Well done and congratulations to your team and volunteers. We pray rest and recovery for you all. May you enjoy the Father's blessing and affirmation. This was a 3G excellent conference : Grace, Gentleness and Generosity in Excellence!"
