Your Hope-Filled Perspective with Dr. Michelle Bengtson podcast

Feb 18, 2021

Episode Summary:

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.

Quotables from the episode:

  • Our identity in Christ is despite what we do.
  • My identity is rooted in the fact that I am a child of God and that never changes.
  • What I do comes out of who I am.
  • Spiritual warfare is a truth encounter.
  • We see less than 20% of reality with our physical eyes.
  • What lies did you bring from your independent life into your life that is dependent on God?
  • “Lordship” is following no matter what.
  • We grow the most in life’s hardest places.
  • Our goal as parents is to place our child’s hand in the hand of a holy, living, good God.

Scripture References:

  • 2 Corinthians 5:17 “This means that anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun!”
  • Matthew 28:18 “Jesus came and told his disciples, ‘I have been given all authority in heaven and on earth.’”
  • Ephesians 6:12 “For we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places.”
