Pete Greig | Hearing God's Voice, 177 Pete Greig and Amber discuss hearing God in the natural and the normal, experiencing Him with all of our senses, and why the Spirit living in us allows us to hear Him differently than most people in the Bible. Hearing God's Voice Questions Pete and Amber Discuss:
(3:31) Why do you think Christians have strayed so far away from expecting to hear from God?
(5:40) Describe the differences between God's Word and God's Whisper.
(8:16) Because of hurt that has come from fellow Christians we sometimes don't know when to trust that voice. Do you have anything that you would share when it comes to that?
(14:53) To what degree should we expect God to speak to us today like He once did in the Bible?
(20:30) I've heard time and time again that contemplative prayer, imaginative prayer, breath prayers are progressive, not Biblical, dangerous and the list goes on. Will you speak to this?
(25:47) You, Jon Tyson, Tyler Staton, Sharon Garlough Brown and others have spoken about the practice of Lectio Divina and how it has impacted your walk with Jesus. Others, such as David Helms, Tim Challies have spoken about the dangers of it. Will you speak to this quote from Tim Challies " if we follow Lectio Divina from personal devotions to sermon preparation, we may not preach the text, but preach our interpretation and appreciation of the text. We preach the text as it impacted us, not the text as it is."
(34:36) Let's end with a question my husband wanted me to ask you from your book God On Mute. After long battles with health issues for your wife, what wisdom would you offer to those who still struggle with this daily as your wife and family does?

(5:26) Share a little about your faith journey. When did you begin walking with Jesus?
(12:01) If you grew up in the church you can probably sing, "And the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace.." but in "How God Loves Us" you write about the fruit of the Spirit being the characteristics of God. Let's begin with how Christians typically think and talk about the fruit of the Spirit.

Quotes to Remember from How God Loves Us:"I was like what Jesus described, the whitewashed tomb, it looks clean on the outside, inside is just dead rotting bones. All of my goodness wasn't good enough.""What made me love God was the realization that He was good in my place, that Jesus Christ was that goodness that I needed.""I didn't have to act anymore. I didn't have to prove myself anymore. I didn't have to attain to some level of outward spirituality that everybody would praise me for. I was free and forgiven and loved because of who he is not because of who I am."SHOW NOTES cont.Related Episodes:

Sherry Hoppen | Getting Sober & Walking With Jesus, 169 Join the Grace Enough community HERE!Sherry Hoppen joins Amber to discuss the years she spent addicted to alcohol, how it impacted her relationships and life after being flat on her face, fully surrendering her addiction to God.
(4:40) Share a little of your faith journey with us.  When did you begin walking with Jesus?
(6:24) There is a season of your life where the label, "addicted follower of Christ" was true of you. Will you take us back and share how alcohol addiction became a part of your story and what day to day life looked like during that time?
(15:00) You can have a huge problem with alcohol and not necessarily get to the point where you're hiding it in your bathroom. Talk about that a little?
(18:39) What are some signs that should kind of trigger us to think something more may be going on here than what I realize?
(22:08) After many failed attempts at sobriety, what took place that finally set you on the path of freedom from addiction?
(29:20) You've said, "I think addiction is spiritual warfare at it's finest, and I believe the devil is going to use it to his advantage every way he can." Will you expound on that statement?
(41:40) Maybe, there is a Christian woman listening right now who is walking a similar path to the one you were on decades ago.  What would you like to say to her?
“In essence, you think that you're keeping your life separate from God. Like I have my life with God, and I have my life without God. Because, really, you're ashamed. You don't want God to see that side [alcoholism].”“If someone disagreed with my drinking…I cut them out of my life.”“If you're questioning if you have a drinking problem, you do.”“I really thought I was surrendering and that God was letting me down. When, in essence, I didn't surrender anything. I was surrendering on my terms…. The difference was instead of saying to God, ‘I just want to go back to drinking like normal when I go to this event. Help me to just put a lid on it when I need to. Or take away this craving. Or, please don't let anybody find out’.... I was flat on my face on my living room floor, just crying out to God saying, ‘You know what, I surrender, I'm done. I'll do whatever you want.’ And I'd never said that before.”“There is no magic answer, but there is a way. And I believe the way is by taking God's hand and not letting go and finding a community that supports that.”Resources Mentioned:Shesurrenders.comBook: Sober Cycle by Sherry HoppenEpisode Sponsor:The Ten Minute Bible Hour PodcastTo make fun, quick, deep-dive Bible a part of your daily rhythm, go to www.thetmbh.com/podcast, or search The Ten Minute Bible Hour wherever you get your podcasts.------------------------------------------------------I would love to connect with you on IG and FB------------------------------------------------------ Learn more about your ad choices.
