    Good Neighbors from Refreshing Hope Ministries on Vimeo. Today I want to talk about the importance of being a good neighbor. Ever since Adam and Eve had kids and one killed the other, it has been an ongoing thing, learning to live with one another. Most of the ten commandments are about how we tr...

    When I kept silence, my bones wasted away through my groaning all day long. For day and night your hand was heavy on me. My strength was sapped in the heat of summer. Selah. I acknowledged my sin to you. I didn't hide my iniquity. I said, I will confess my transgressions to Yahweh, and you forgave t...
  • The man said, 'They have left here, for I heard them say, 'Let's go to Dothan.' ' Joseph went after his brothers, and found them in Dothan. They saw him afar off, and before he came near to them, they conspired against him to kill him. They said to one another, 'Behold, this dreamer comes. Come now ...

The Lord is My Rock

  • He said, The LORD is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer, my God, my rock, in whom I take refuge, my shield, and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold and my refuge, my savior; You save me from violence. I call upon the LORD, who is worthy to be praised, and I am saved from my enemies. 2 Samuel 22:1 ESV

    David sang this song to the Lord when he was delivered from all of his enemies. Where others saw nothing, David saw the works of the Lord through the eyes of faith. When those around him did not believe, he could truthfully say, 'I call upon the Lord, who is worthy to be praised, and I am saved from my enemies. It works for me, see the dead giant head I am holding?'

    He would have had nothing to sing about at all if he had not lived through some pretty hard times. You do not get the glory without the story. You do not have a testimony without a test. Though invisible to our normal eye, the Lord is there to help us. An unshakable Rock, the Ancient of Days, The Living God. When we invite the Lord into our situation, it changes, and when God is on our side, no one can stand against us.

    Do not struggle in your own strength. Invite the Lord into your situation. Ask the Lord to come help you with this. Don't become discouraged when it takes longer than you thought. David went through many afflictions, but God delivered him out of them all.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father, please come and be a part of my life today. I look to You Lord. Save me from my enemies and give me wisdom to excel, in the name of Jesus.

Amen. As we call out to Jesus and Abba Father, in the midst of storms, they will give give us rest

Matthew 11:28-30

28 “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”

and they will give us peace

Philippians 4:6

6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your

requests to God.

 

If the storm is raging and you toss and turn upon your bed as your soul is filled with anxiety, just repeating these verses over and over will bring you peace and comfort. You will sleep and when you awake you will be strengthened in your soul to face your trials.
