Welcome back JP Nation! You are in for a treat. We are truly honored to have an incredible guest with us today. We have Steve Noble on our show to share some wisdom with you. He is the host of Called2Action Radio as well as a teacher at a seminary school.
Steve shares with us a little of his journey in becoming a born again Christian. He has always viewed himself as a Christian, much like most of the population. The one difference between the Christian he was and the one he is now, is one simply word, grace. He had truth, but no grace. Jesus had grace. When he was being nailed to the cross, he could have brought wrath but instead he brought on grace. He says one simple thing that speaks a million words, “Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do.” (Luke 23:34, ESV)
Have you ever gotten into a rut basing your self-worth on material things? Have you ever felt depressed about the way your life was going? Steve gives us three ways to overcome depression.
There are two different times that Steve had a struggle he overcame and he shares those with us today. But he wasn’t able to overcome these struggles on his own. God sent his wife to walk with him through these adversities. When he started his Called2Action radio ministry, it was a different path than everyone else in his family had taken. He and his wife were visiting family when he hit a wall. He felt so shameful that he wasn’t making as much money as the rest of his family. He was holding his self-worth and value in material things. He was condemning himself for not being as “successful” as the rest of the family. His wife then spoke to him and pulled him out of that depression. She explained to him how he was called to that type of work and how he must obey! His other struggle was very similar. But instead of his wife talking him through his depression, she just simply handed him a Bible and said that he needed to get back into God’s Word. Both times, he was able to have a quiet, calm reserve come over him. His wife was standing with him and gave him the courage he needed to move forward. He didn’t know what the future held, but he knew that God was holding that future for him.
There are so many people who endure the battlefield of the mind. They are having a hard time distinguishing true thoughts against the lies of the enemy. You have to obtain fuel from the outside and Jesus is that fuel. God will perform miracles; they just take time. Miracles happen through the perseverance of faith. Are you willing to continue to ask for something and have the faith that God will make it happen? God is for you and with you. He proved that on the cross.
