Typically, I go live on Thursday evenings.
But this week, I’m traveling to spread the message of Shut Up, Devil. God has opened so many doors on radio, podcasts and TV. …
One of my favorites is a recent conversation with Hope Today in Pittsburgh. I love how the hosts opened the show: “We’re going to give the devil a big black eye!”
By the end of the conversation, I know that’s what we did. Watch it below.
- The sneaky way feelings become identity
- The most toxic lie the devil tells Christians
- The root of all fear and worry
- The 4-steps to reprogram your mind out of negativity
- Can you REALLY keep the enemy from talking?
Tune in below. ⬇️
It won’t be long today before you encounter someone who sees something differently than you.
If you’ve logged onto social media, you’ve likely already encountered them.
Whether it be a biblical passage or a political issue, do you ever wonder how two people can look at the same thing and come to completely different conclusions about what they see?
As I explore in Shut Up, Devil, the reason has to do with how God designed the mind.
Knowing this will not only help you see things more positively, but it will also help you see others more positively. (And maybe bring some much-needed sanity to this diverse world.)
Online stats reveal that Sunday night is the most popular time when people search for help.
The most frequent topic they search? Loneliness.
As I write in my book, Shut Up, Devil, humans have been wired for relationship from the beginning. The sense of belonging is a fundamental need alongside air, water, food and safety.
The problem is that most people pursue relationships according to a devil-crafted LIE, which is backward from the way God designed.
A few years ago, God asked me to do something that scared me.
It was so nerve-racking that in the weeks leading up to doing it, fearful thoughts kept me from falling asleep at night.
In order to get some sleep and do what God asked of me, I had to learn how to use my mouth in a way that changed these thoughts.
Combatting negative thoughts is one of the key benefits of what I call “the mind and mouth connection.”
There are 2 more huge benefits to the connection. …
Some years ago, while watching a movie about Jesus’ crucifixion, I found myself super annoyed.
It wasn’t the acting or the people next to me in the theater that bothered me.
It was the constant crackling from the speaker system.
Finally, I decided I couldn’t take it anymore. So I left my seat determined to complain to a manager.
Suddenly, what God popped into my mind plopped me back into my seat. And it’s a word I’ve returned to every time that I feel not good enough.
It’s the weekend and the last day of the month.
Many are relaxing.
Yet I sensed that you have some heavy things on your mind, which are keeping you from feeling free.
I don’t know if it has to do with your finances, health or a relationship.
But God compelled me to send you this quick message regarding whatever difficulties you face today.
These aren’t my words; He asked me to share His. So I’m just being obedient. …
These days, with others’ highlight reels literally under our noses on social media, it’s so tempting to copy the traits that appear to bring them success.
“You need to be like somebody else” is one of the 10 devil-crafted lies that I shut down in my book, Shut Up, Devil.
I vulnerably share of my struggle with this lie, especially at the beginning of ministry.
For too long, I believed I needed the stories, the humor or the skinny jeans of other preachers my age in order to be “successful.” 🤦🏻♂️
Boy was I wrong!
Finally, God broke through all the insanity to reveal how to effortlessly harness the unfair advantage that I already had. And it’s a word for you, too.
God brings struggling and hurting people to this ministry.
People who desperately need healing and deliverance that lasts for more than a season.
This is exactly what I always prayed that He’d do.
But after a decade of ministry (and plenty of personal experience), I discovered something about real, lasting healing and deliverance. …
Even if you’re somehow rid of symptoms—whether by supernatural or natural means—it won’t fully stick until you embrace a single, simple foundational truth.
You probably know that the Bible wasn’t originally written in English. No, most of the New Testament was originally written in Greek.
Sometimes things get lost in translation.
The full meaning of the enemy’s name is one of those.
In Greek, “devil” is diabolos, which reveals not just who he is, but the specifics about what he does. And therefore, how you can beat his attacks.
(By the way, exposing this secret is how I begin my new book, Shut Up, Devil: Silencing the 10 Lies Behind Every Battle You Face. Order your signed copy now or pre-order from your favorite bookstore.)
If you’re anything like me, it’s often easier to accept that God forgave you than to forgive yourself.
The reason is because, though we are spiritually forgiven, our memories aren’t erased.
