If You Really Knew Me
Friday, May 19, 2023 - 25 minutes
In this sometimes, uncertain world, it helps to have daily reminders of God’s goodness. If we look, we can see God’s goodness all around us in what and WHO He has created.
On this month’s podcast episode of If You Really Knew Me Ben and Kim discuss how God gifts each personality type with different traits so we can learn from each other. They’ll also share encouraging songs and scriptures about the goodness of God.
In the episode:
17 Bible Verses: What God Says About You - Dr. Michelle Bengston
1. I say (or have said) I am unlovable, but God says I am forever loved.
“And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love. No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord” (Romans 8:38-39).
2. I say (or have said) I am scarred but God says I am healed.
“But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on him, and by his wounds we are healed” (Isaiah 53:5).
3. I say I am weak, but God says He makes me strong.
“God arms me with strength, and he makes my way perfect” (Psalm 18:32).

“God decided in advance to adopt us into his own family by bringing us to himself through Jesus Christ. This is what he wanted to do, and it gave him great pleasure” (Ephesians 1:5).

“So you also are complete through your union with Christ, who is the head over every ruler and authority” (Colossians 2:10).
7. I have been rejected, but God says I am His!
“Do not fear. I have redeemed you. I have summoned you. You are mine” (Isaiah 43:1).
8. I say I am alone, but God says He is always with me.
“…Do not be afraid or discouraged. For the Lord your God is with you wherever you go” (Joshua 1:9).
9. I say I am hopeless, but God says because of Him, I am hopeful.
“For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare, and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope” (Jeremiah 29:11).

“But thank God! He gives us victory over sin and death through our Lord Jesus Christ” (1 Corinthians 15:57).
12. I say I am lost, but God says He gives me direction.
“Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying ‘This is the way; walk in it’” (Isaiah 30:21).
13. I say I am worried, anxious, or afraid, but God says with Him I am peace-filled.
“Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid” (John 14:27).

“I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well” (Psalm 139:14).
