    The God who made the world and all things in it, he, being Lord of heaven and earth, doesn't dwell in temples made with hands, neither is he served by men's hands, as though he needed anything, seeing he himself gives to all life and breath, and all things. Acts 17:24 WEBWhen I was growing up, we us...

    RHM Devotional: Heroes and Monsters from Refreshing Hope Ministries on Vimeo. Today I want to talk about the potential of being a Hero, or a Monster, that exists inside each one of us. We get to choose. Once when Jesus was preaching from a boat, He told a parable about a man that sowed wheat in H...

Face Down

  • Now the Philistines had taken God's ark, and they brought it from Ebenezer to Ashdod. The Philistines took God's ark, and brought it into the house of Dagon and set it by Dagon. When the people of Ashdod arose early on the next day, behold, Dagon had fallen on his face to the ground before Yahweh's ark. They took Dagon and set him in his place again. 1 Samuel 5:1'3 WEB

    Early in the morning when the Philistine priests came to their temple, they were shocked to find their pagan god dagon (the god of grain and fish) laying on his face before the ark of God. So they stood dagon back up, but the next morning again found him laying before the ark, but this time he was broken in several pieces.

    The Israelites while backslidden had intended to use God to fight their battles by bringing out the ark, but that day He was with their enemies instead and He allowed the ark to be captured. You cannot use God to accomplish your will, though He may use you to accomplish His. He is the Almighty God and we are His children. Disciplined children listen to their parents.

    When God said 'You shall have no other gods before Me' He actually meant it. If you place something in your life more important than Him it will crumble and you will be disappointed. Keep the Lord first in your life and everything else will fall into place. If you put something else first in your life, it will go face down.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father I thank You for bringing me this far. Please lead me today and help me make the right decisions. Help me bring my life into balance, in the name of Jesus Christ I pray.

I want to just let God be God, and to be in His word daily so He can renew my mind.

Yes, when HE said anyone who loves mother father sister brother indeed youur own children more than ME then you cannot be MY Disciple.  I am learning how true that really is and it is very painful and a hard saying as HIS original 12 said amongst themselves!
