This is my birthday week, and in this episode, I wanted to give back to you, our faithful listener. In this episode, I focus on the lies that we often believe and truths from the Bible about our identity. It’s so important to know what God says about us and believe it over the lies of the enemy. I also share the impetus for my daily social media “Today is a good day…” devotions.
In this episode, we’re talking about our identity in Christ, the reality of spiritual warfare and the importance of praying daily for our children. We’re fighting a real battle that we can’t ignore. This is the kind of battle we fight on our knees. Join me with my guest, Tina Chambers Smith, founder of Raising Kids on Your Knees.
The enemy comes to steal our joy, kill our peace and destroy our identity. But don’t despair. Scripture says “You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them, because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world” (1 John 4:4). Once we are aware of the enemy’s tactics, we can fight them head on.
Guilt. Agony. Shame. Embarrassment. Those are just a few of the feelings we can carry in our hearts from mistakes we’ve made in life. That’s not how God wants us to feel. Have you ever made a mistake and wondered, “How do I forgive myself?”
The storms of life can bring crashing waves of doubt, depression, anxiety, fear, or feelings of being lost when we are not where we thought we should be. The truth is we are not wired for uncertainty, even as believers. Life’s curve balls that throw us off course can be a real struggle. In the midst of our storms, God wants to give us hope and establish who we are in Christ. Read more for who God says you are in Christ.
