One Voice Makes A Difference with Janet Swanson

Dec 25, 2023

Janet talks about the things that God has shown her throughout 2023 in the midst of transition, pain, chaos and the NEW THINGS God has been doing.

Hey you guys! MERRY CHRISTMAS AND HAPPY NEW YEAR! I can’t believe it’s already Christmas and we are staring in the face of 2024.  This year has flown by!  Today’s podcast is so important because I am sharing some very intimate things with you, so that you will be encouraged about how GOOD GOD IS!

I picked up a few things on TikTok that a girl posted that impacted me and it bore witness in my spirit of what I have learned this year and throughout my walk with Jesus.

Here they are:

  • A man once said, “God is more concerned with your holiness than your happiness” yet I’ve never seen a holy man unhappy. There is nothing more joyful than living a holy life.
  • A life of holiness is a life a purity, transparency, and  apocalyptic.
  • The Lord is approachable but His holiness is distinct.
  • Just before God sends the right one, the enemy sends the wrong thing
  • Jesus wants heart transformation, not behavior modification
  • Growing closer to God is not the result of “trying harder” but surrendering more.
  • When you have a relationship with the ONE who is LOVE…..then you can love others the way He intended.
  • Jesus is the perfect painter. When we try to take control of our lives/the paint, it gets messy. But when we surrender the brush to Him, the perfect picture is created
  • We read the Bible, but the Bible reads us, our hearts
  • You have as much of God in your life as you long for right now.
  • God is only pleased with Jesus, not you. By faith, you stand before God as Christ because Christ stood as you before God.
  • When you criticize yourself, you criticize the Creator.
  • The living don’t date the dead.
  • We serve a God that can restore the years the enemy  (Joel 2:25)
