How to Hear from God with Becky Thompson

The Alli Worthington Show

Friends! You do not want to miss out on this conversation with my friend, Becky Thompson! She is probably best known for her books on motherhood, but recently, she’s ventured in a new direction, spirituality. In her newest book, God So Close, she leans into all things related to the Holy Spirit (and she takes us along with her!). If you’ve ever found yourself asking why God doesn’t speak to you or who exactly is the Holy Spirit, this episode is for you! I hope you’ll be blessed by our conversation. Becky Thompson is the author at http://www.BeckyThompson.com and is the founder of the Midnight Mom Devotional community on Facebook, where over one million moms gather nightly for prayer. She has a captivating way of encouraging women (and men) in need of hope, healing, and the Heavenly Father's love. Becky lives in NW, Oklahoma, with her husband, Jared, and their three children. Listen in to learn more about: What it looks like to live more fully in the presence of the Holy Spirit Who the Holy Spirit is, how we hear from Him, and why He is important The gifts of the Spirit and how we can use our gifts to impact the world and share the message of Jesus  Favorite quotes: ~The enemy hasn’t taken the power away from the church, He has  simply done his best to make us believe that we don’t possess it. A life awakened to the Spirit is a life lived listening to God, listening to His voice and remembering that you are more than you can see and more than what you feel and that God has a purpose even for the little things in your life. ~The Holy Spirit is a speaking member of the Trinity.  ~What happened in the early church was not just for the early church, it was a continuation.  ~There aren’t people who don’t hear from God, you just haven’t learned how He speaks to you specifically yet. ~When we don’t have the realization that we are supernatural beings that happen to live in earthly bodies, that our supernatural lives began the moment we said Yes to a saving relationship with Jesus, that eternity began then for us. We were born not just of flesh, but we were born of spirit, alive in that moment for eternity. ~If the spiritual gifts are tools given to us by the Holy Spirit so HE can move through us, then, it makes them less about us, less about the gift and more about the person on the other side.

#148: Real Talk about the Holy Spirit with Becky Thompson

Real Talk with Rachael Podcast

This week on Real Talk with Rachael I'm talking with author Becky Thompson. Not only is Becky a bestselling author, but she's also the creator of the Midnight Mom Devotional community gathering more than one million moms in nightly prayer. She has become a voice for modern Christian womanhood, speaking about the struggle of balancing life as a wife, mother, and daughter of God. Becky lives in Oklahoma with her husband, Jared, and their three children. Key Points from Our Conversation: The Holy Spirit is a co-equal member of the trinity. If the Holy Spirit shows up, it should stir in our hearts the same type of adoration and awe as Jesus walking into the room. People are hesitant about engaging with the Holy Spirit because others have expressions that seem radical when God comes close. "Our expectations do not confine God." We think surrendering to the Holy Spirit means we'll lose control, but we're actually in more control when we allow the God who knows all things and loves us to lead us. When we accept the Holy Spirit's invitation to partner with Him, we get to know Him better and learn to love Him in a way that we can only understand when He guides us. This is what a life awakened to His spirit looks like. As we grow and mature, we look around and ask how the world around us needs us to know God as deeply and personally as we can. How can the people around us experience God's love through what we know of Him to be true? "The gifts of the Holy Spirit are given to us so He can move through us." It’s our responsibility to learn how to use them so the body can be whole and can function in its fullness. You already know the Holy Spirit if you know Jesus - He's the one that bought you into the relationship. The Holy Spirit is how Jesus comes close to us. It's through Him we experience God. Let’s Get Real Practical: What comes up for you when we discuss the topic of the Holy Spirit? Be honest. Write your answer down.  What do you want to come up when you think of the Holy Spirit?

SCRIPTURES: (NIV unless noted) And afterward, I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your old men will dream dreams, your young men will see visions. Joel 2:28 “I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever—the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him; but you know Him, for He dwells with you and will be in you.” John 14:16–17 (NKJV) But very truly I tell you, it is for your good that I am going away. Unless I go away, the Advocate will not come to you; but if I go, I will send him to you. John 16:7 When the day of Pentecost came, they were all together in one place.  Suddenly a sound like the blowing of a violent wind came from heaven and filled the whole house where they were sitting.  They saw what seemed to be tongues of fire that separated and came to rest on each of them.  All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues  as the Spirit enabled them. Acts 2:1-4 In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us through wordless groans. Romans 8:26 And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people.  Ephesians 6:18 BOOKS BY BECKY THOMPSON: God So Close Hope Unfolding Love Unending Peace LINKS: Becky Thompson Moms in Prayer Booklet-ebook format MOMS IN PRAYER New to Moms in Prayer?

PGK-Episode 158: Midnight Dad Devotional (with guests Becky Thompson and Dr. Mark Pitts)

Parenting Great Kids with Dr. Meg Meeker

This episode features the Dad-Daughter duo, Becky Thompson and Dr. Mark Pitts, co-authors of Midnight Dad Devotional: 100 Devotions and Prayers to Connect Dads Just Like You to the Father. Men will be encouraged to learn how God is with them through their parenting journey, in all seasons of life, and will be strengthened in their resolve to become the best father they can be. Dr. Meg & Guests Becky Thompson & Dr. Mark Pitts (Part 1) Dr. Mark Pitts explains how fathering seems to have moved from being rooted in relationship and connection with their kids to becoming more of a utilitarian role – provider and protector, sans any real relationship. A father’s role is often scaled down to tasks – disciplinarian, driver, coach, homework checker, money lender. Yet Dr. Pitts is finding that more and more men desire a return to being in true relationship with their children and they want to know how they can develop a deeper connection and long-lasting bond with their kids. Dr. Meg & Guests Becky Thompson & Dr. Mark Pitts (Part 2) Becky Thompson and Dr. Mark Pitts share further insights from Midnight Dad Devotional, explaining how the daily devotions give men a sense of connection with other fathers, strength for the day ahead, wisdom from the Bible for tough situations, affirmation of the importance of their role, and the reassurance that God is with them, no matter what.

Even the most bold, assertive, and confident man feels the heavy burdens and fears that come with fathering kids in these challenging times. He wonders Do I have what it takes?

The powerful motivation to keep reaching for more in your life as a dad. How to grow in your confidence to pray for your kids. How community with other dads is a game-changer in the life of a father Becky Thompson and Dr. Mark R.
