Men and Women of A Different Spirit

Have you been carrying a spirit of fear? Have you been believing a lie that is holding you back from all that God has called you too?

In this episode, Rachel Sweatt is issuing that challenge to a new way of thinking and a new anthem for living humble, courageous, and obedient lives. It’s no secret that if we want to live differently, set apart as followers of Jesus, we are going to look differently. Saying no to a life inhibited by fear and self-preservation is mandatory for experiencing God to the fullest.

Rachel discusses the account of two men, who were sent out by Moses to check out the land God had given them, the Promised Land. These men, along with ten others, set out and were shocked at what they found in the place God had called them to. They were met with giants. Fear. Doubt. And all the men but Joshua and Caleb, came back full of fear. But Joshua and Caleb? They were men filled with a different spirit, the same spirit we are called to carry into all that God has for us.

"But because my servant Caleb has a different spirit and follows me wholeheartedly, I will bring him into the land he went to, and his descendants will inherit it.” (Numbers 14:24, NIV)

Fear is a symptom of a greater stronghold: a lack of trust. You see, the other ten men knew all about God but as soon as they saw the giants, they forgot all they knew about the God who called them there. Joshua and Caleb, on the other hand, set their eyes on God instead of the giants. Sure, they could see them, but the giants were not where they were going to focus. They were going to set their eyes on God and who they knew He was, His character, and His heart for them

We get to make the same choice today, friends. Will we choose to be men and women of a different spirit, like Caleb and Joshua? Or will we miss out on all that God has for us because of fear? I’m praying this encourages you to set your eyes on Jesus and take one step of obedience after another. Full for FAITH + CONFIDENCE in who God is and His love for you. I promise it is WORTH it!

How You Can Fight Discouragement + Overwhelm TODAY Remembering This One Thing...

In this episode, host Rachel Sweatt is sharing how intentionally remembering that HIS grace fills in all our gaps can help us fight discouragement and overwhelm, while simultaneously building our faith + cultivating gratitude. When we fail, fall short, or just don’t quit hit the mark on our intentions, goals, etc. this is one way we can remain ENCOURAGED in our pursuit.

In 2 Corinthians 12:9, we are given a promise that has become the soundtrack to my life lately.

But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.”

When we look back at the past season of our lives, we can be discouraged or encouraged. We can choose to either see our shortcomings, OR we can see and CELEBRATE where God filled in every gap.

When we look towards the future, we can either be overwhelmed at what’s to come or grateful that we’ve got God on our side, ready and willing to fill the gaps with the hard-fought for grace made possible by JESUS that we have the privilege of experiencing every day. Isn’t that the BEST NEWS?!

Thank you, Jesus!
