Christ: The Remembrance of God at Work in Us

 

Welcome to Speak Faithfulness!

This weekly podcast gives voice to the belonginghealing and wholeness of all God’s children. It exists to speak aloud the faithfulness of God by resting in Scripture and sharing the testimony of Christ revealed through us, His children, both now and in the past. We are opening our mouth for those unable to speak (Proverbs 31:8).

For no matter how many promises God has made, they are “Yes” in Christ. And so through him the “Amen” is spoken by us to the glory of God (2 Corinthians 1:20, NIV).

 

We are currently walking through a series, entitled Upon This Rock, based on the life, redemption and ministry of Peter. Each week we focus on a portion of Scripture that reveals the faithfulness of our God toward not just Peter, but each one of us. We look at how Peter’s life reflects the belonging, healing and wholeness we can all find in our Savior, who calls us to speak aloud His faithfulness over ourselves and others.

 

Today, we are resting in

ten of the words recorded in Luke 22:61, after Peter has denied Jesus three times, the rooster has crowed and Jesus turns to look at Peter. In the New International Version we read:

 

“Peter remembered the word the Lord had spoken to him”

 

May the remembrance of God come alive in us as we listen in today. May our ears and the eyes of our hearts open to the truth and grace Jesus is speaking over each one of us today. May we arise without fear and without shame in the light of God’s love for us:

 

 

In today’s episode I share about the blessing of the virtual Black Barn Collective community, about the blessing of praying the Promises of God daily and of Mary DeMuth’s book Everything. If you are interested in pursuing God in these ways, here are some links to more information:

May this Scripture below remind us that no matter what temptation comes our way and what temptation we have given into in the past, we have a Redeemer and Restorer who died to breathe our and other people’s deliverance. May it remind us that God has NEVER and will NEVER tempt us into sin, but has and only ever will allow trials that are purposed to enlarge our heart, granting us, through Christ Jesus in us, the incredible patience God shows us daily and has shown to us in the past, for others also. May God forgive us for those moments we have clung to the pain, believing He does not care about us and the wrongs inflicted upon us. May He help us to draw near to Him and be comforted by Him. May He forgive us for being embittered by the patience He is showing to those He has called us to love, the very same patience He has shown us, again and again. May He enlarge our hearts and set us free in Jesus’ Name.

 

 

 

And may this beautiful song remind our heart that we are deeply loved and that God deeply loves each one of His children:

  1. Dear Anna,
    Thank you so much for these precious words today. It truly is a miracle that He brings us HIS love to us in the midst of our remembering. He brings His own remembering to us, and then we can remember what He has given and won for us! I’m so overwhelmed by His touch. Blessings and love to you dear friend. xoxo
