Jessica is a life coach. More foundational than her training as a coach is how God wired and prepared her for this role. She is quietly reflective and insightful. She’s not the first person to speak, but she is an astute and careful listener. In this episode of Better Roads Randall and Jessica discuss the journey on which the Lord has guided her and how she has learned to be a good listener and tune to the Holy Spirit’s frequency in hearing people at a heart level. Jessica describes her passion about discovering this coaching avenue of serving God. She also shares about the pivotal, better roads she has chosen in life and the impact those choices continue to have today.
Bob is gifted by God to see and impart insightful truths to people. He has been walking in faithfulness with this gift, sometimes referred to as words of knowledge, for many years. The Holy Spirit frequently shows Bob pictures, words, or dates about individuals which he shares with them. Sometimes he may not even know the full significance of those words, but they are revealing to the people who receive them. In this episode of Better Roads, Randall and Bob discuss how this gift works through Bob, about excesses that sometimes occur when people either presume upon the Holy Spirit or go beyond what the Spirit has revealed to them. They visit about the circus-like atmosphere that is sometimes created, never glorifying to the Lord, and about how people who are discovering the Lord has similarly gifted them can begin to step out and grow in a gift of the Spirit in a manner that is pleasing to the Lord. Bob and Randall also candidly visit about Bob’s present physical reality of multiple sclerosis, which keeps him homebound. How does Bob process the contrast between the fact that God manifests His power through Bob and yet Bob’s freedom to minister has been greatly curtailed because of MS. What is God up to? All in this episode of Better Roads.
