Why God Seems So Inefficient In Your Life [Podcast]

Selections from the Book of Acts

What do you do when God directs you down a path that makes no sense? Honestly, I’ve lost count of the number of times the Lord has led me in a direction that, well, just seems so terribly inefficient!

In this episode of Live the Bible, we’ll be in the book of Acts to look at times Peter and Paul must have felt the same way. So often, we know where we’re headed; we feel ready. But instead of taking us on a direct path, the Lord throws in a hard left turn. We all know the shortest distance between two points is a straight line, so why does God always seem to take us the long way?

There’s an answer, and it’s a good one!

Why Your Waiting Will be Worth It [Podcast]

John 7:1-10, 37-39

What’s your biggest challenge in life? In today’s episode of Live the Bible, we’re turning to the book of John to address one of my personal, biggest challenges: waiting.

Little in this life is as hard as waiting—especially waiting on God. If only God would answer our prayers more quickly, if only He would say YES instead of NO when we’re desperate for Him to, if only He would speak up and show up when we want Him to, our lives would be so much easier. Right?

It may feel that way, but the Scriptures show us what’s really true.

How to Better Understand God — and Yourself [Podcast]

Luke 24: 13-49

How do you view God? In this episode of Live the Bible, we’ll get honest about how we see God and our lives of faith. We tend to assume, “If I’m walking in God’s will, then life’s gonna look like THIS. This is how it should be!”

We view our lives the same way we view social media or Christmas cards—the way we want it to be rather than the way it really is. But God is so much more than that, and He wants our lives of faith to be more than that too.

The book of Luke can help us get there.

What Did You Expect from God? [Podcast]

Selections from Mark 8-10

What do you do when God doesn’t meet your expectations? In this episode of Live the Bible, we’ll turn to the book of Mark to answer that tough question. We all have an idea about what life will be like when we say yes to following Jesus.

The first disciples certainly had their expectations too! And Jesus disappointed them. But why does God let us experience the hurt, disappointment, and anger of unmet expectations?

The answer, amazingly, is good news.
