Your Hope-Filled Perspective with Dr. Michelle Bengtson podcast

Mar 11, 2021

Episode Summary:
This is my birthday week, and in this episode, I wanted to give back to you, our faithful listener. I share what was the impetus for my daily social media “Today is a good day…” devotions. With age often comes wisdom. In this episode, I decided to focus on the lies that we often believe, and truths from the Bible about our identity.

Quotables from the episode:

  • As long as God is still on His throne, today is a good day for a good day.
  • The lies we believe about ourselves limit us from fulfilling God’s calling for our lives.
  • What matters most is knowing what God says about us and believing that over the lies of the enemy.
  • If we weren’t imperfect we wouldn’t need a Savior.
  • The worth of something is determined by the price we are willing to pay for it. Jesus thought we were so worthy that He paid the price of His life for us.
  • There is nothing we can do to earn God’s love.

Scripture References:

  • Jeremiah 31:3 The LORD appeared to us in the past, saying: "I have loved you with an everlasting love; I have drawn you with unfailing kindness.”
  • Isaiah 53:5 But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on him, and by his wounds we are healed.
  • 2 Corinthians 12:9 But he said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness." Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ's power may rest on me.
  • Ephesians 1:7 In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God’s grace.
  • Ephesians 1:5 God decided in advance to adopt us into his own family by bringing us to himself through Jesus Christ. This is what he wanted to do, and it gave him great pleasure.
  • 1 Thessalonians 5:23 May God himself, the God who makes everything holy and whole, make you holy and whole, put you together - spirit, soul, and body - and keep you fit for the coming of our Master, Jesus Christ.
  • Song of Solomon 2:16a My beloved is mine and I am his.
  • Ephesians 1:5-6 “having predestined us to adoption as sons by Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the good pleasure of His will, to the praise of the glory of His grace, by which He [a]made us accepted in the Beloved.”
  • Isaiah 41:10 Don’t be afraid, for I am with you. Don’t be discouraged, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you. I will hold you up with my victorious right hand.
  • 1 Corinthians 15:57 “But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.”
  • Psalm 139:14 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.
