Embracing God as Our Mighty Warrior: Navigating Life's Challenges with Faith and Dependence: Devotional Bible Study of Psalm 144


Welcome to another episode of the Hearing Jesus Podcast! Join us as we explore Psalm 144 and the captivating portrayal of God as a mighty warrior who defends His people.

Thoughts to Journal:

Reflecting on the concept of God as a mighty warrior and our need to depend on Him, take a moment to consider a current or upcoming challenge you're facing. In your journal, explore the following questions: What is the specific challenge or battle you are encountering or anticipating in your life right now? How does the imagery of God as a warrior resonate with you in relation to this challenge? Have you been leaning on your own strength or trying to handle things independently? How might your perspective change if you fully trusted in God's power and provision? Consider writing a prayer or affirmation acknowledging God as your ultimate defender and expressing your trust in His strength.


Today’s Key Verse:

Blessed is the people of whom this is true; blessed is the people whose God is the Lord. Psalm 144:15

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 daily dose of faith, honesty, and prayer.

Women often deal with feelings of insecurity and unworthiness, yet the lives of these women show that Jesus values us, wants a relationship with us, and can use us to further His kingdom. In her warm, conversational style, Rachael ties together her life experience, knowledge of the Scriptures, and her compassion for women to encourage us and enable us to become the women God has called us to be.
