    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.' But Naaman was angry, and went away and said, 'Behold, I thought, 'He will surely come out to me, and stand, and call on the name of Yahweh his God, and wa...

    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!

From Start to Finish

  • Where could I go from your Spirit? Or where could I flee from your presence? If I ascend up into heaven, you are there. If I make my bed in Sheol, behold, you are there! If I take the wings of the dawn, And settle in the uttermost parts of the sea; Even there your hand will lead me, And your right hand will hold me. Psalms 139:7 WEB

    Before we were born, God was already there for us (Psalm 139:13). Though we walk through the valley of the shadow of death, He is still there (Psalm 23:4). When you feel all alone, God, through the presence of the Holy Spirit, is always there (Hebrews 13:5). When your soul mate has left you alone, He is the comforter and He holds the brokenhearted in His arms (Isaiah 40:11). When they have told you that you have stage four cancer, He is the Healer there to comfort and restore you (Isaiah 53:5).

    When doors close and you are unemployed, He opens doors that no man can shut (Revelation 3:8). When the bad news comes, He is able to make all things work together for good (Romans 8:28). Things that are impossible with man, become possible with God (Luke 18:27).

    When they lock you away and throw away the key, He is with you in the prison cell (Genesis 39:23). When you know it to be wrong, but find yourself enslaved and doing it anyway, He understands and is there to help you (1 Corinthians 10:13). When you are laying on your death bed and about to take your last breath, He is there to take you by the hand and guide you to heaven (2 Corinthians 5:1). He is with us from the start, until the finish.

    You will never be out of His reach, and He will never give up on you. No matter how much you stumble, get up and try it again. He loves you not because you are good, but because He is good. Don't wait until some point in the future to start getting to know God for He is with you right now. When you choose to ignore Him, it is you that is missing out.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father, I choose You today! Walk with me, talk with me, and teach me more about You. Guide me into all that You have for me, for I am Yours. In the name of Jesus Christ I pray.

    Note: The highlighted group of the week is "Keep It Simple Crafts": this group is about the joy of creating beautiful, yet simple, projects for your home, as gifts or just for fun! Crafts that can be created with little-to-no skill are encouraged here. Please check out the group from the groups list and join the fun! ALSO, the Creation Photographers group fun theme of the week is "It''s a Heart Thing", based on Proverbs 4:23. As always, our themes are open for interpretation and you are encouraged to post as you like as well!

Amen! In our stumbling , even in that difficult time of conviction,we find Him closer to us, for He is drawing us back. He is touching our heart and causing us to seek Him for help and for forgiveness. Even in our worse failings, He is near, just waiting for us to cry out to Him. This is God's love for us, it is neverending and always willing to embrace us and set our feet back upon the straight and narrow path. What a great love this is ! Though we play the harlot, like Gomer, ( Hosea's wife), Abba Father pursues us and brings His bride/bridegroom back.

I love these promises and so wish I could take back the years I floundered around resisting what I knew to be right.

Pastor Todd,

I felt led to tell you that I have shared portions of your messages on my wall for others to read. I have always said it is from a Pastor not from me. I feel so many need to hear God's word and you are so spot on. Thank you for the blessings your devotionals bring. 

 

God speed always,
