Have you ever noticed how much Jesus talked about farming, fields, planting, sowing and reaping? It was kind of a theme for Him and for good reason. The people of Jesus’ day worked the land. They farmed, they plowed, they planted, sowed and reaped harvests.
In order for you to have a good, plentiful, and bountiful harvest you need Good Ground!
The same is true for our life and our hearts. In order for the “seeds” of The Word of God to take root in our lives, it needs good ground. Good ground makes space for good seeds to take root, sprout, grow and yield a great harvest.
So how do we make our lives good ground for God to plant His seed? We get our hearts right. We get them healed and whole. We get in His Word and read it, but not just read it. We meditate on it and take it to heart. We put into action what we read in His Word and we also take action based on what He is speaking to us in the moment.
Today on the podcast, I have two Worship Pastors who have a single releasing this week called Good Ground. There is a clip right before the podcast starts that will give you a glimpse of the song “Good Ground” is and what a powerful message they carry.
PS – sorry for the delay in getting the LinkUp Live. The Holiday Monday has me all messed up on what day it is. So if you know someone who usually links up earlier in the day, let them know we are finally live.
Episode #162: Good Ground
With Cody & Julie Oliver
Cody and Julie Oliver both have a background in worship: Both have grown up in prophetic and presence-centered worship cultures. Julie is 5th generation in ministry, Cody is 2nd, with an amazing testimony as a young child, which we dive into today on the podcast. Cody & Julie at school of ministry and planted 2 churches in their first year of marriage. I love that both Cody & Julie have a pure heart for worship. They have always valued the pastoral side of “worship pastor” before the “artist” side that we see prominently today. You are going to enjoy our conversation today.

Meet This Week’s Podcast Guests:
When Cody and Julie Oliver met in their school of ministry’s worship class, they instantly knew a great adventure awaited them. Both had grown up in pastor’s homes and sensed a call from the Lord early on. Cody wrote music for secular and worship artists in the Atlanta music industry, as Julie began preaching while working for TBN Atlanta. They were married in 2017, and had their first son, Walter Isaac, just over a year ago. Now, they serve on staff as the worship pastors for ResurgentATL a thriving church in Marietta, GA..
Over the past year they have introduced new original worship songs in their church every month. The songs were received better than they ever hoped, and accomplished just what was wanted – that people would worship the Lord in Spirit and Truth, with language that stirred hunger and faith in the community for more of Him.
With a love for worship leading, teaching on worship, and imparting fresh passion for ministry in the local church, Cody and Julie are excited to release their first live worship album “Come and Move” in June 2022. Videos from the live album shoot will also be released on Youtube. At home, you’ll likely find them eating sushi and watching Mickey Mouse Clubhouse with their toddler.

YouVersion 7-Day Devotional
I am blessed and honored to have a 7-day devotional on the YouVersion Bible App. YAY!!! It is a great way to kick start the 7- days before my on-line Bible Study starts next week. I would be so blessed if you would check it out and share it with your friends. You can find it here: Be The Gift Someone Needs Today!
Have you had the opportunity to read my new book “The Gift of Prophetic Encouragement: Hearing the Words of God for others.” ? This book is about learning to hear the voice of God in our own life so we can respond to those God bumps and little nudges He gives us on a daily basis. God is calling us to be agents of encouragement and to be the gift the worlds needs today.
We live in a time, where those around us are in desperate need of a real encounter with Jesus and in need of encouragement. We are called to encourage one another daily (Hebrews 3:13), and to build each other up (1 Thessalonians 5:11). My book will teach you how to step out and do just that.
We all have the opportunity to #BeTheGift of encouragement others need today.
A practical guide to what it looks like and how to live a lifestyle of prophetic encouragement.
Are you Ready to #BeTheGift Someone Needs today?
Words have power.
To encourage. To comfort. To strengthen. To heal.
Especially when they come from God.
The Gift of Prophetic Encouragement Bible Study: Living a Lifestyle of Encouragement shows us how to follow Jesus by loving on and building up His church … one person, and one God-centered word, at a time. Diving deeply into Scripture, Pastor Debbie Kitterman beautifully unpacks the Biblical precedent of prophetic encouragement and teaches you how to hear from God. By doing so, you’ll bravely step into your calling to #BeTheGift others need.
In this stunning six-week study, you will:
- Examine the model of encouragement Jesus established for us.
Define the simple (and Biblical) concept of prophetic encouragement.
Learn to identify and test the voice of God in your life.
Explore activation exercises which strengthen your hearing muscles.
And gain confidence in your calling to build others up
Are you ready for six weeks that will change your life, deepen your relationship with God, and create ripples of encouragement that spread through those around you?

If you answered YES to any of those questions, then I have exactly what you need. I now have an online e-course designed to equip you in understanding that God still speaks today, and He longs to speak directly to you, through His word, and others.
