    Fear Not from Refreshing Hope Ministries on Vimeo. Today I want to talk about fear, and the importance of pressing on even though we are afraid. When God calls you to do something, often fear is the first guardian that will be sent to stop you from accomplishing it. The Apostle Paul wrote to Timo...

    But you, when you pray, enter into your inner room, and having shut your door, pray to your Father who is in secret, and your Father who sees in secret will reward you openly. In praying, don't use vain repetitions, as the Gentiles do; for they think that they will be heard for their much speaking. ...

    Behold, I will do a new thing. It springs out now. Don't you know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert.

The Master's Touch

  • And wherever He came, in villages, cities, or countryside, they laid the sick in the marketplaces and implored Him that they might touch even the fringe of His garment. And as many as touched it were made well. Mark 6:56 ESV

    As we knelt down to pray, my friend had mixed emotions of fear, anger, uncertainty, and questioned whether Jesus was even real. We had played music together for the last few months. He didn't go to church, but knew that I went to Bible college. What we had in common was that most weekends, we were playing in a bar together. I had prayed about leaving it, and the Lord told me to stay. It paid my way through school and a couple of people got saved along the way.

    I didn't look down on them, I was just one of the band, but they watched me. My friend broke down one night and in tears said: 'You are different from the others. I want what you have.' He met Jesus. When we came up from prayer, he had a glow about him and smile from ear to ear. His doubts were gone. He was touched by the Lord Jesus and he was never the same.

    The touch of the Lord can melt the hardest of hearts, but you have to initiate it. You have to reach out for Him. He is a gentleman and will not force His way into your busy schedule, though He is always close. Stop a moment and invite Him to be a part of your life. If you do not know Him, start your relationship now with: 'Lord Jesus, save me.' The rest will come from the Master's touch.

    Prayer: Come into my heart, Jesus. Forgive me of my past and guide me from this day forth. I want to have a relationship with You! I surrender Lord. Fill me with your Holy Spirit and work Your perfect will in my life.

I feel the same way. I want what you have. I already have part of it. I love Jesus and have a passion for him, but I wish I could serve the lord like you.  Your writing inspires me. I feel a push and pull to serve the lord more. I read your writings and I think, my client needs to hear this but I havnt shared this blog with them yet 

and yet I know I can't be you. I know you can't be me. I have my own unique talents to serve Jesus. I praise Jesus that he made me unique and special to serve him in just the right way. 

May I serve the lord, love the lord with all my heart, soul and mind for today.
