    Elisha sent a messenger to him, saying, 'Go and wash in the Jordan seven times, and your flesh shall come again to you, and you shall be clean.'

    Sanballat and Geshem sent to me, saying, 'Come! Let's meet together in the villages in the plain of Ono.' But they intended to harm me. I sent messengers to them, saying, 'I am doing a great work, so that I can't come down. Why should the work cease while I leave it and come down to you?' Nehemiah 6...

    Simon Peter said to them, "I'm going fishing." They told him, "We are also coming with you." They immediately went out, and entered into the boat. That night, they caught nothing. But when day had already come, Jesus stood on the beach, yet the disciples didn't know that it was Jesus. John 21:3'4 WE...

Website Migration:

Notice: We will be migrating to our new website over the next week, and hopefully things like email delivery will improve. During the transition, no emails will be sent. The latest devotional is always posted at the top of the devotional list. So bookmark it, create a shortcut, make it your homepage, or write the URL down on a napkin so you can find it later :)

 

Notice 4/9/24: The new RHM website is live and ready for testing! We are still working on adding content and functionality, but if you'd like to help kick it around and test it, we'd be happy to see you there :)! Here is the link to getting started. Thank you for your patience and prayers!

Walking A Tightrope

  • Then the devil took him into the holy city. He set him on the pinnacle of the temple, and said to him, 'If you are the Son of God, throw yourself down, for it is written, 'He will command his angels concerning you,' and, 'On their hands they will bear you up, so that you don't dash your foot against a stone.' ' Jesus said to him, 'Again, it is written, 'You shall not test the Lord, your God.' ' Matthew 4:5 WEB

    Some years ago, a man walked across Niagara Falls on a thin wire. It was windy and he had to balance himself with a pole that he carried as he made the twenty-five minute trip. It required careful balance and constant correction to stay on the wire. If he had leaned a little too far left, or too far right, he would have fallen. He had to stay balanced.

    The devil tried to get Jesus to prove that He was the Son of God by jumping off the temple. Though the scripture used by satan was true, in this case, it was used wrongfully. It was out of balance with the rest of scripture. The most believable lies have an element of truth in them. We are to rightly divide the Word (2 Timothy 2:15) and test things against the whole body of scripture.

    We need balance in every area. In your life, the enemy will always try to make you think too much of yourself, or too little. To work too hard, or not at all. To give nothing, or everything. The truth is in the middle, and not in one extreme or the other. It can be like walking a tightrope with constant corrections.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father, please help me find balance in my life. Let me see my priorities through Your eyes and make what is important to You, important to me. In the name of Jesus Christ I pray.

    Note: Good morning! The highlighted group of the week is "Laughter, God''s Medicine": post funny pics, clean jokes, funny videos. Share funny stories. If it's funny it is welcome here!
