Podcast #100: “Awake Our Souls” by Tim Timmons

Play episode

I’m Michelle Nezat and I hope to inspire you to discover and meditate on God’s Word through the songs you’re listening to on the radio.

Have you ever arrived at a familiar destination only to discover you don’t remember experiencing the journey? Tim Timmons’s “Awake Our Souls” is a cry for us to wake up and experience the Kingdom of God all around us! It inspires me to pick up God’s Word and consider what it teaches about the Kingdom.


God asks for our efforts to be focused on His agenda and His way of doing things. God’s Word can teach us how.

In this episode, I discuss the following:

  • The story behind the song – Tim Timmons on YouTube
  • Getting to the heart…the true source of who we are
  • Taking a B.I.T.E. out of Scripture with the Bible Interaction Tool Exercise of a topical search – use this free resource
  • Not stopping at the short list of topical Scriptures…you must read them in CONTEXT
  • Combating the lies of the enemy with the truth of Scripture
  • Using commentaries AFTER you have read and considered God’s Word for yourself
  • Experiencing the Fruit of the Spirit rather than just the fruit of my own labor
  • The story behind the album – Tim Timmons on YouTube
  • Seeking first the Kingdom of God and HIS righteousness – Matthew 6:33
  • How the Kingdom of God doesn’t look like I expect it to look
  • When the King was arriving – John 12:12-16
  • When the King declares His Kingdom is eternal – John 18:36
  • How the theological truth that the Kingdom of God is eternal in nature changes my posture
  • Allowing this week’s song to be a prayer in our own lives

This Week’s Challenge

Start where I started: with a topical search of the Kingdom of God. Download this week’s free resource to walk you through the steps. Then, progress to reading as much as you can about what Jesus taught about the Kingdom of God. Matthew 13 contains seven different parables describing the Kingdom of God. It is a great place to start.
