We are living in turbulent times. In this week’s episode, Carolyn Freeman and I talk about holding onto hope in turbulent times: where we are now and what we can do going forward. We address the tough issues we are facing today and how we can respond to the challenges by grounding ourselves in God’s word and prioritizing a mindset that is focused on victory in Jesus.

Quotables from the episode:

  • It’s incredible how God knows our needs long before we do, and He already knows how He’s going to meet them.
  • Whatever you’re going through right now, there’s hope because it doesn’t take God by surprise. And He already knows how He’s going to get you through it.
  • The Holy Spirit’s going to come to remind you of all truth. The Holy Spirit cannot remind us of truth that we have not already taken responsibility to learn.
  • If you are relying on “your” truth to help you survive in this world, you’re being deceived.
  • But if we look to God to satisfy our needs, we can never run out.
  • You cannot have maximum eternal impact if you are not first spending time in God’s word.
  • God has such an upside down economy, and if you want to be great, you have to become the least.
  • He is nudging us all the time. The question is, is it so noisy that we’re ignoring his nudges, or will we do as he’s asking?


Scripture References:

  • Hosea 4:6 My people perish for lack of knowledge.
  • Jeremiah 17:9 The heart is deceitful above all things and beyond cure. Who can understand it?
  • James 4:8 Draw near to God and He will draw near to you.
