Episode 16

Today’s declaration verbalizes a promise Jesus made with an if/then condition. His promise that you will bear fruit and that your joy will be complete hangs on your decision to remain in Jesus and remain in his love through obedience. The Scripture comes from a record of Jesus’s last hours on earth with his closest…

Today’s podcast is second in a two-part series on Psalm 91. This episode not only encourages you to not be afraid of terrors and disease, but it also reminds you and I of the power and authority we have to crush fierce lions and serpents under our feet. The Bible calls Satan a lion on…

Episode 10

Believers in Jesus have been adopted into the family of God and are co-heirs with Christ. The Spirit you received when you accepted Christ as your Lord and Savior does not make you a slave.

In a world of so many lies and half-truths, I am passionate about sharing pearls of truth. I happen to believe the Bible is filled with truth. That’s why this podcast is based on Scripture. We are now six weeks in to a seven-part series on Psalm 139. Each week, I read a passage from…

This week’s episode is the fifth installment in our seven-week series. The truth you’ll hear today from Psalm 139 gives you the right to declare this: God’s countless thoughts are for me. When you know without a shadow of a doubt that the one who is in control of this crazy world not only has…
