"Death once held us in its grip, and by the blunder of one man, death reigned as king over humanity. But now, how much more are we held in the grip of grace and continue reigning as kings in life, enjoying our regal freedom through the gift of perfect righteousness in the one and only Jesus, the Messiah!" Romans 5:17 TPT
The Bible tells us we are to reign with Christ. That we are a royal priesthood (1 Peter 2:9).
In this podcast, I give you some training for reigning:
First the car needs a new engine, then your daughter calls to say she is getting a divorce, then your job says you need to work 12 hour days for the next month, and to top it all off you dad says he's getting his hip replaced and could you help out with his care and watch his dog?
You could probably handle one or two stressful things but when it hits you from every side you start to wonder, "How much more can I take? What should I do next? Where do I even start to fix this mess?"
My guest today, Barry Spilchuk, knows exactly how you feel. He was hit with 5, yes 5, major life events that rocked his world all at the same time. But God...
About My Guest: Barry Spilchuk
God gave us emotions but did He mean for us to be on an emotional rollercoaster ride every day? One moment we are peaceful, then we get out of bed (lol). Then the next moment we are stressed to get us and the kids out the door. The next moment we are settled into routine and everything is calm and manageable and along comes trouble! We get hit in the face with regret or embarrassment or anger.
The days are up and down and some days are down and down. You might even be screaming, "Get me off this ride!" Stressors bring along with them chaotic emotions that make us long for the days of calm and control.
Here's a few things we'll cover in today's podcast:
1) Thoughts are liars.
2) Your words can create power or helplessness.
3) What your emotions are trying to tell you.

Your life is created on the framework of imagination. You visualize something happening and it creates a frame that your life builds upon. What kind of life are you building? Are you visualizing more God thoughts or more of your own thoughts?
We picture a lot of fearful things. We imagine the worst. We consider all the bad that could happen.
What if you instead pictured the promises of God? You imagined the blessing operating fully in your life. You consider all the good things the Father has in store for you and built your life on that framework?
The picture you have of God will bring faith, strength and the ability to change the world. What are you picturing?

Relationship is where it is at!
You were designed to be in relationship with God. Not just a one time salvation experience but an ongoing intimate relationship. When you get this right your stress, worry and fear levels are all affected for the better.

In relationship is where he restores your soul.
In relationship is where he can heal your heart wounds.
In relationship is where you'll find joy, peace and rest.
In relationship is where you'll live the adventure of life you've been looking for.
I think all Christians want this relationship but many struggle with actually connecting with God. In this episode, I give you one specific thing to do every single day to build the bonds of intimacy with God. You can do this in just 15 minutes a day.

"If I asked you, 'Do you have fear?' your first instinct may be to say 'no.' However, if we look at some of your day to day activities, we may see behaviors that are symptomatic of underlying fears.
In order to achieve God’s plans for our lives, we have to acknowledge we have fear, understand the root cause of those fears, and take actions to overcome them."
