Episode 143

I heard a great sermon last Sunday by Nathan Finochio about how being in relationship with God is about loving him the way he likes to be loved. Since Jesus said that to love him is to obey him, obedience to God obviously matters. That’s why I’m thankful to know the truth found in this week’s…

Episode 142

I pulled today’s declaration from a promise Moses gave to the Israelites when the Egyptian army cornered them at the Red Sea. Picture the Israelites trapped between all the forces in Pharaoh’s army—all his horses and chariots—and an ocean. Aren’t you thankful that the same God who buried Pharaoh’s army stands ready to rescue and…

Episode 141

Welcome to the podcast designed to empower your tongue with truth. When you believe truth from the Bible and speak declarations drawn from scriptural truths, then you can overcome the negative affect of believing lies. You can drown out each lie about who you are and what you’re capable of with the truth of who…

Episode 140

You can’t always read Proverbs in context, because its collection of wise sayings often jumps from topic to topic. But Proverbs 18:19-20 wonderfully sets up the point made in verse 21. Proverbs 18:21 was the focus of the first episode of Believe & Speak. What you and I say matters a lot more than how…

Episode 139

This week’s declaration is for anyone trying to discern God’s will and having a hard time hearing from him about your next steps. I have been on a wild goose chase over the past few months. My deepest desire has been to do the will of God. To trust and obey him, whatever the cost,…

Episode 138

This week’s declaration speaks of the firm confidence that is ours as we hold on to God and his promises. Aren’t you thankful that we don’t simply hope for the best. We hope in God! This hope is a strong and trustworthy anchor for our souls. About a month ago I did an episode that…

Episode 137

In Luke 12, Jesus is speaking to a crowd as well as to his disciples, and he addresses them ALL as dear friends. He tells the gathered group of thousands that God knows the number of hairs on every head in the crowd. Then he says, “So don’t be afraid; you are more valuable to…

Episode 136

This episode will have us declaring a promise attached to heeding God’s rules for life. God’s Word not only warns us to keep us from harm, but also encourages us to keep us at peace. God leads us into abundance when we choose to follow him. My oldest granddaughter will be four years old this…

Episode 135

I was talking with a friend yesterday about what Jesus said to his disciples when he was teaching them what to expect in the last days. “For false messiahs and false prophets will appear and perform great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect” (Matthew 24:24 NIV). I love the two-word promise…

Episode 134

Today’s episode centers on Hebrews 4:13-16, which contains a beautiful invitation to be completely transparent with God. I love how these verses point out the beauty of being totally laid bare before God. We not only have nothing to fear when we approach the throne of grace, but we can approach with bold confidence, knowing…
