Your Hope-Filled Perspective with Dr. Michelle Bengtson podcast

Apr 27, 2023

Episode Summary: 

Our thought life determines our whole life. The enemy wants us to feel defeated, rejected, and defenseless. But Jesus offers a truth that sets us free and when seized in a mind, has the power to transform us to a whole new way of living. The mind of Christ can change everything if you let it. The size of your God far outweighs any issues in your mind. Join me with Kelly Balarie for how to change your thinking and change your life.

Quotables from the episode:

  • I believed I was how I thought or how I felt. I had to learn to rule over my emotions with the Word of God.
  • We need to mind our mind.
  • Not taking thoughts captive leaves us dry and parched.
  • Shame comes against us, but Jesus offers grace and mercy. Jesus rejected the shame so we can also with the mind of Christ.
  • Conviction leads to restoration through repentance.
  • Mercy covers our mistakes. God’s grace equips, empowers, and enables us, and God then does the impossible work through us.

Scripture References:

  • 2 Corinthians 10:5 “We destroy arguments and every lofty opinion raised against the knowledge of God, and take every thought captive to obey Christ.”
