028: She Believes with Debbie Lindell

 

“There is beauty in every step when you just keep walking with Jesus!”

In this episode, my friend and the author of She Believes: Embracing the Life You Were Created to LiveDebbie Lindell, shares about her journey of learning to seek God and rely on His truth and power. 

Debbie and her husband, John, knew early on in their marriage that God was calling them into pastoral ministry, but she struggled to believe that she had what it took to lead others. Currently, God has positioned them as lead pastors of a large church and ministries that are making a global impact. Debbie discovered along the way that it is not enough to know or even understand the truth of God’s Word, we have to embrace it for ourselves.

For nothing is impossible when we choose to believe that God can use us to accomplish His purposes through His power. God wants you to embrace the truth of who He created you to be so that you can represent Him to the world around you.

Important Takeaways from Show

  • The enemy wants us to doubt God’s truth about who we are
  • We have to believe that God can use us and then rely completely on His power
  • If we rely only on ourselves, we will never see the supernatural power of God manifested in our lives
  • Get alone with Jesus so He can speak His truth and direction into your heart
  • God specializes in changing hearts
  • When we choose obedience, it gives God access to change our hearts
  • If we’ll give God our time, He can transform our faulty thinking
  • God longs for His children to look to Him first and He never fails to respond
  • When we commit ourselves to God, He will work in His timing and His ways  (Psalm 37:5)
  • As the bride of Christ, we are invited into an intimate relationship with God which requires intentionality
  • The more time you spend with God, the more you begin to hear and understand Him
  • God speaks to us in many different ways when we are actively listening
  • Our responsibility is to seek God with all of our hearts; it is up to Him to speak to us how He desires
  • Prayer is the baseline for understanding who God is and what He can do in and through us

The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full. ~ John 10:10
