Hearing Jesus

Rachael Groll
Hey friends, welcome to the Hearing Jesus Podcast.

Do you sometimes doubt if you are truly hearing God’s voice or if it’s really your own? Do you wonder how you can know the difference? Do you struggle to feel confident in your relationship with God and what He says in his word? Do you sometimes feel stagnant or like you hit a wall in your spiritual life?

Hey, I’m your host, Rachael Groll: missionary, author, pastor, and life coach. And I have been there. I too was doubting God’s voice in my own life. I too felt insecure about the things I thought God might be calling me to do. I wanted to make a difference in the world and be obedient to what God was calling me to do, but I wasn’t quite sure how to figure out what exactly that was. I kept telling myself that I was wasting time trying to figure it out or waiting for Him to show me. Or that I wasn’t qualified to do the things I thought He might be telling me to do.

The answer for me was found in the pages of the Bible, as I learned how to understand what it was actually saying. If you are ready to grow in your faith and to step confidently into the calling God has for you, then join me as we dig deep into God’s word so you can learn to live out your faith in your everyday life.

Friend, you are loved, you are cherished, and you are His.

The Hearing Jesus Podcast will encourage and equip you to step into the calling God has for your life, living out your faith in the everyday. Together we will break down walls that keep us from growing spiritually. We will dig deep into our Bibles to understand and connect the Scriptures to our lives. We will boldly obey what God calls us to do, walking through doors that only He can open.

Join me for your weekly dose of faith, honesty, and prayer.

Raw and Honest Prayers: How King David's Example Can Transform Your Prayer Life: Devotional Bible Study of Psalm 143
May 24, 2023 - 18 min
Raw and Honest Prayers: How King David's Example Can Transform Your Prayer Life: Devotional Bible Study of Psalm 143   Psalm 143 portrays King David in a state of emotional distress - feeling low, anxious, and likely struggling to sleep as he turns to God in prayer. He acknowledges his desperation and realizes that his only hope is in God's intervention. Have you experienced a similar situation? I certainly have. I find David's example of being honest and genuine with God in our prayers inspiring. This passage reminds us that it's okay to express our deepest emotions to God and seek His help in times of need. I hope this episode brings you encouragement, particularly when you find yourself in a similar circumstance. Thoughts to Journal: Think about a time in your life when you felt overwhelmed, anxious, or low, just like King David in Psalm 143. How did you handle those emotions? Did you turn to God in prayer or try to manage them on your own? Reflect on what you learned from that experience and how you can apply David's example of being real and honest with God in your prayer life. Write down a prayer to God, expressing your raw emotions and seeking His help in any current struggles or challenges you may be facing. Today’s Key Verse: Let the morning bring me word of your unfailing love, for I have put my trust in you. Show me the way I should go,  for to you I entrust my life. Psalm 143:8   Hey friends, welcome to the Hearing Jesus Podcast.  Do you sometimes doubt if you are truly hearing God’s voice or if it’s really your own? Do you wonder how you can know the difference? Do you struggle to feel confident in your relationship with God and what He says in his word?

Honoring God with Our Words: Devotional Bible Study of Psalm 141   Hey there, welcome to the Hearing Jesus podcast! In today's episode, we're going to dive into Psalm 141 and explore David's prayer to God about his words. We'll talk about how this prayer can help us yield our hearts and minds to the Lord, especially in difficult situations where our mouths can get the best of us. David's example reminds us to ask for God's guidance and control over our mouths and hearts, so we can respond in ways that honor Him. So, if you're looking for inspiration and guidance on how to pray and surrender your words to God, this episode is for you. I pray this episode blesses you! Thoughts to Journal: How has your mouth responded in the past when you have been faced with a similar experience to David?  When you think about this in terms of your mouth being a reflection of what’s in your heart, what thoughts do you have?  Do you need to surrender your words to the Lord?  Spend some time in prayer today, asking God to help you the next time you are in this kind of situation. Today’s Key Verse: Set a guard over my mouth, Lord; keep watch over the door of my lips.

Do you sometimes feel stagnant or like you hit a wall in your spiritual life? Hey, I’m your host, Rachael Groll: missionary, author, pastor, and life coach. And I have been there. I, too, was doubting God’s voice in my own life. I, too, felt insecure about the things I thought God might be calling me to do. I wanted to make a difference in the world and be obedient to what God was calling me to do, but I wasn’t quite sure how to figure out what exactly that was. I kept telling myself that I was wasting time trying to figure it out or waiting for Him to show me. Or that I wasn’t qualified to do the things I thought He might be telling me to do. The answer for me was found in the pages of the Bible, as I learned how to understand what it was actually saying. If you are ready to grow in your faith and to step confidently into the calling God has for you, then join me as we dig deep into God’s word so you can learn to live out your faith in your everyday life. Friend, you are loved, you are cherished, and you are His.

There is Only One Hero in the Bible : Devotional Bible Study of Psalm 140
May 19, 2023 - 21 min
There is Only One Hero in the Bible : Devotional Bible Study of Psalm 140   Today’s passage looks at the behavior of David, in a situation that is pretty similar to what each of us have gone through.  Yet there are some aspects that we should recognize as part of his humanity, and not necessarily something we should emulate.  Instead, we should look to Jesus, how He responded, as our model.  As we compare the two today, I pray this episode blesses you.   Thoughts to Journal: In the past, have you looked to the human character in the Bible as the heroes?  How does your perspective shift when you realize that they aren’t the ones that are the hero?  Allow yourself some time today to process that, as you start to look for God’s character and nature to be the model we chase after. Today’s Key Verse: I know that the Lord will maintain the cause of the afflicted, And justice for the poor. Psalm 140:12 Hey friends, welcome to the Hearing Jesus Podcast.  Do you sometimes doubt if you are truly hearing God’s voice or if it’s really your own? Do you wonder how you can know the difference? Do you struggle to feel confident in your relationship with God and what He says in his word? Do you sometimes feel stagnant or like you hit a wall in your spiritual life? Hey, I’m your host, Rachael Groll: missionary, author, pastor, and life coach. And I have been there. I, too, was doubting God’s voice in my own life.

God’s Loving Thoughts of You Outnumber the Grains of Sand: Devotional Bible Study of Psalm 139
May 18, 2023 - 26 min
God’s Loving Thoughts of You Outnumber the Grains of Sand: Devotional Bible Study of Psalm 139   Friend, we are discussing some powerful truths today.  God knows you intimately, and there is nowhere you can go to escape that love.  When we allow those truths to sink in, it will change things for us.  I pray that as we study today’s Psalm, you recognize how incredibly much you are loved. Thoughts to Journal: Does the understanding of God’s omniscience change anything for you?  Or the fact that the enemy is not omniscient?  What about God’s omnipresence?  Spend some time today, reflecting on the ways these truths impact your relationship with God. Today’s Key Verse: How precious also are Your thoughts for me, God! How vast is the sum of them! Were I to count them, they would outnumber the sand. Psalm 139: 17-18a   Hey friends, welcome to the Hearing Jesus Podcast.  Do you sometimes doubt if you are truly hearing God’s voice or if it’s really your own?
