    "Are We Missing Jesus as We Work for Jesus?" with Gloria Umanah

    "Are We Missing Jesus as We Work for Jesus?" with Gloria Umanah

    You can do all things for Jesus and in His name. But without closeness to the One who empowers you to do great things, are you missing out on truly knowing Him?
    If you're feeling worn down by the weight of your assignment, maybe it's because it was never meant to be something you carried in the first place. But how do you know? It comes through intimacy with our Savior. Join our friend Gloria Umanah on today's episode to hear a teaching rooted in the truth that apart from Jesus, we really can't do anything.

    "If You’re Hoping for a Miracle" With Dr. Joel Muddamalle

    "If You’re Hoping for a Miracle" With Dr. Joel Muddamalle

    As we're reading the Bible, we often come across miraculous stories and events: Jesus walking on water, Daniel surviving the lions' den, Moses seeing a burning bush, and so much more. But were these events one-time instances? Does God still perform miracles and supernatural acts like this today?
    Today's episode is part of an ongoing series titled "Ask a Theologian" — conversations with Proverbs 31 Ministries' Director of Theological Research, Dr. Joel Muddamalle, and Content Manager for Lysa TerKeurst, Shae Hill. In every episode, Joel and Shae will tackle everyday questions with theological insight and practical takeaways.

    "Trusting God With the Pieces of Life" With Lauren Fortenberry

    "Trusting God With the Pieces of Life" With Lauren Fortenberry

    "One of the hardest parts of faith is learning to trust God with the pieces of life when there is no peace." — Lauren Fortenberry
    When life's stresses and storms happen, it's easy to give up hope. In today's episode, Lauren Fortenberry shares about walking through her own storm a few years ago — losing her father to cancer. On the verge of giving up hope, Lauren challenged herself to go back to the basics of talking to God through prayer ... one day (and sometimes one sentence) at a time. If you find your life in pieces today, we hope this episode encourages you to hold on to the hope you can find through prayer and God's Word.

    "Finding Inner Peace" With Dr. Joel Muddamalle and Lysa TerKeurst

    "Finding Inner Peace" With Dr. Joel Muddamalle and Lysa TerKeurst

    There are inescapable aspects of life we all wrestle through: We have less control than we want, more anxiety than we're comfortable with, and just enough insecurity to continually remind us of our shortcomings. Is it possible to really experience peace when our circumstances aren't peaceful?
    In this Q&A conversation, Dr. Joel Muddamalle and Lysa TerKeurst discuss the power of humility and how it leads to the inner peace we're all really longing for.

    "God Has Given You What You Need To Do What He's Asked" With Rachel G. Scott

    How often do we almost take a step of faith ... only to stop short of what we're asked to do because we don't feel equipped?
    We don't feel like we've had enough time to prepare.We don't see how our gifts align with the assignment. Someone else is already doing it.
    In today's episode, author and podcaster Rachel G. Scott shows us how we should respond to God's unique calling for our lives in each season. You'll be challenged to identify why you've delayed your "yes" to God and inspired to seek out how God has already prepared you.

It’s A God Thing!

When you stumble across a podcast that you feel God has met you where you are that day. Maybe no one else but God even knows what you are struggling with. You follow His lead, then experienced a Divine Appointment with Him brings peace and comfort. God is in control. He knows everything and cares about every detail of your life. Thank you God for sending your Holy Spirit to guide us through this life. Thank you for those that share their knowledge and what you have taught them with others. Bless their ministry for your Kingdom.
