Since the Coronavirus outbreak captured the world’s attention, I have heard Psalm 91 quoted multiple times. In a difficult season like the one we’re in right now, the specific promises in this psalm resonate deeply, bringing comfort and igniting hope. In today’s episode, I will be echoing a psalm that has already been quoted in response to COVID-19. But even though you may have heard it more than once over the past days and weeks, ...

I could not have known when I kicked off this podcast 13 weeks ago how different our world would look today—from the empty shelves in the grocery stores to the empty highways during rush hour. I live in California, the first state to quarantine its residents due to COVID-19. The fact that I can’t drive to the corner store and buy a package of toilet paper proves I’m not in control of even the basics in my life. But that doesn’t mea...

The heading in my Bible above Psalm 63 says that David wrote it when he was in the desert. Time in the desert exposes empty places. The verses in today’s podcast show us how David felt and where he turned in a particularly dry season. While I have clung to several different promises of God during dry seasons in my life, Psalm 63:1–8 was the constant cry of my heart during my driest, most desolate season of emptiness.

Isaiah 43:1–4 is filled with words of affirmation—from the wonderful promise in verse one that you belong to God, to the tender expression of God’s love for you in verse four. Many of the affirmations found in these four verses would make a great-sounding and powerful declaration. I certainly welcome you to declare that God has redeemed you and summoned you by name. Declare that you belong to God and are protected by His mighty pow...

Believers in Jesus have been adopted into the family of God and are co-heirs with Christ. The Spirit you received when you accepted Christ as your Lord and Savior does not make you a slave. The Spirit makes you royalty, with all the wealth, prominence, power, and authority given to an heir of the King. Adoption into God’s family gives you access to God’s resources and elevates you to royal status. As a child of God, you are set to ...

In a world of so many lies and half-truths, I am passionate about sharing pearls of truth. I happen to believe the Bible is filled with truth. That’s why this podcast is based on Scripture. We are now six weeks in to a seven-part series on Psalm 139. Each week, I read a passage from the Bible, and then I give you a phrase to declare that smacks of truth. Finally, I close with a prayer that I encourage you to pray along with me to s...

This week’s episode is the fifth installment in our seven-week series. The truth you’ll hear today from Psalm 139 gives you the right to declare this: God’s countless thoughts are for me. When you know without a shadow of a doubt that the one who is in control of this crazy world not only has his eye on you but also has his thoughts focused on you, you must also know that you are not forgotten. I invite you to head on over to shawn...

If you’re new to the Believe & Speak podcast, welcome! I release a new episode every Wednesday, and follow a simple format: I read Scripture, give a declaration based on that Scripture, and close with prayer. The catalyst for this podcast is my book that releases July 14th. The book—called, Longing to Belong: Discovering the Joy of Acceptance—is built on the same premise as this podcast: namely that believing and speaking truth...

Today’s episode is the second installment in a seven-part series drawn from Psalm 139. The verses you’ll hear read today absolutely affirm that God is always with you. In fact, you can never sink to a pit so low that God can’t reach in and rescue you. You can never ascend to a peak so high that God will decide you no longer need him. You can never climb out on a limb so far that God will leave you hanging. This seven-part series is...

This week, I begin a seven-part series that will take us all the way through the verses of Psalm 139, a psalm that holds great significance for this podcast. Psalm 139 provides the foundation for my soon-to-be-released book, which served as the catalyst for launching this podcast. In other words, if it weren’t for the book, I wouldn’t have thought to start a podcast called Believe & Speak. And if it weren’t for Psalm 139, I wou...

I close each podcast with a prayer to impress the declaration upon your heart and mind. That’s the basic form...
