    Thank You from Refreshing Hope Ministries on Vimeo. Today I want to talk about the importance of being thankful. Jesus lived on Earth as our example, and He was so thankful and full of praise. No matter what you have been through, there are still some things that you can be thankful about. An imp...

    I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with my loving eye on you. Psalms 32:8 NIVRecently when the Lord was ready to start something new in our life, He started closing out the old. Of course we panicked, tried giving more, praying more, fasting more, serving ...

    Out of the same mouth comes blessing and cursing. My brothers, these things ought not to be so. Does a spring send out from the same opening fresh and bitter water? Can a fig tree, my brothers, yield olives, or a vine figs? Thus no spring yields both salt water and fresh water. James 3:10 WEBHot, ti...

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.
