Your Hope-Filled Perspective with Dr. Michelle Bengtson podcast

Dec 8, 2022

Episode Summary: 

Do you long to feel a closer connection to God? To discern His voice, experience His peace, and live in His joy? Erica Wiggenhorn and I talk about how to experience God’s faithfulness when surrounded by uncertainty, how to reignite our hope instead of losing heart, and how to realize the call of God, reawakening our purpose when we experience revival in our own hearts.

Quotables from the episode:

  • Revival is a personal heart cry before God, asking Him to meet us in our desperation and brokenness.
  • We tend to doubt our beliefs and believe our doubts because of distraction, and as a result, God feels far away.
  • Doubt can be the doorway to intimacy with God.
  • Revival brings us to God who can do anything and is always doing the best for us.
  • The enemy’s desire is to cause us to doubt God’s character.
  • There is no intimacy without first an investment of time.
  • Faith is always intermeshed with fear.
  • What we see as punishment, like God saying no to a request, may actually be God’s protection for us.

Scripture References:

  • Ezekiel 11:19-20 “I will give them an undivided heart and put a new spirit in them; I will remove from then their heart of stone and give them a heart of flesh. Then they will follow my decrees and be careful to keep my laws. They will be my people, and I will be their God.”
  • Ezekiel 20:42 “Then. You will know that I am the Lord, when I bring. You into the land of Israel, the land I had sworn with uplifted hand to give to your ancestors.”
