Gary Wilkerson Podcast

  • Spinning Out of Control

    This week on the Gary Wilkerson podcast, Gary and guest Matt Tanner discuss a plane crash and an extraordinary miracle. If we look back at what God has done, opening our hearts to how he is meeting us in each moment, we may see how our Lord seeks to draw us into a unique and completely trusting relationship with him. 

  • Combating the Dark Nights of the Soul

    A study on depression published in The American Journal of Psychiatry made a remarkable discovery. People who had a relationship with God showed a 76 percent decrease in major depression when compared to their parents who had also struggled with mental illness.

  • Encouragement to Stay in the Fight

    In this episode, Gary Wilkerson discusses depression and suicide even among believers who should live in the light of hope. He explores ways that believers can handle issues like mental illness and how to differentiate between spiritual despair and general life discouragement. Most importantly, he offers encouragement to those who may feel as if they are fighting alone. God is walking right alongside us, even in our darkest hours.

  • Your Painful Past Can Be God’s Most Powerful Tool

    Victor Marx of All Things Possible Ministries joins us to share how God has used his painful past of abuse and rejection to prepare him for rescuing women and children traumatized by ISIS. Our brokenness doesn’t mean we are useless; rather it allows God to use us in his way, for his purposes. We can’t allow fear to hold us back from fulfilling God’s calling for our lives.

  • Feeling Like You’re Falling Behind

    In this week’s podcast, Gary Wilkerson digs down to the root of our expectations for ourselves and our Christian walk that often cause us to despair as we compare ourselves to other believers.

  • Avoiding ‘Spiritual’ Comparison

    • Basic physical health can affect spiritual and emotional wellness
    • How building Christian relationships keeps our spirits balanced
    • The damaging habit of comparing ourselves to others
  • Fighting Hopelessness in Our Walk with God

    Pastor and president of World Challenge, Gary Wilkerson, paints a brighter and more biblical picture of God’s favor in this opening podcast. Here the discussion ranges from strategies the enemy uses to distract us from God’s goodness all the way to how exactly God wants our lives to show His unearned grace to a hurting, unbelieving world. The following are a couple points he touches upon:

    • Comfort and self-interest as our drug of choice
    • What it means to get the “Holy Ghost miserables”
    • Finding contentment in who God has made us to be

    This warm and personal conversation explores the issues God has laid on Gary’s heart for those who are struggling with the idea of God’s favor in their lives. Only an active pursuit of God’s presence and guidance will grant each of his children the peace to stand unmoved in the midst of life’s storms.
