    Rest from Stress from Refreshing Hope Ministries on Vimeo. Today I want to talk about resting from stress. Jesus Christ, who lived on Earth as our example, lived a simple life of trust and peace. When He and the disciples crossed the Sea of Galilee on their fishing boat and a great storm came, Je...

Something from Nothing

  • However, not to give offense to them, go to the sea and cast a hook and take the first fish that comes up, and when you open its mouth you will find a shekel. Take that and give it to them for me and for yourself. Matt 17:27 ESV

    When Jesus came to Capernaum, the tax collectors asked Peter for taxes. Jesus told him to go fishing and the first fish that he caught would have a silver coin in its mouth, and to use that to pay them. What are the chances of that? I grew up fishing and never caught one like that.

    Once when out of work for a season, I really needed two-hundred-fifty dollars to pay a bill and had no way to get it. After I went to church that Sunday, I noticed an envelope tucked into my Bible. When I opened it, there were two one-hundred dollar bills and a fifty. I still do not know for sure who did it, but they certainly heard from the Lord that time.

    We like to be self sustaining, and to have to depend on others is a struggle. But when you find that you have to depend on God, you will find that He is more than enough.

    So today if you find yourself in a tight spot, know that He is able to help you. Don't give up. God Almighty is the one that brings something, from nothing.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father, You know my needs before I even ask, and You know the things that I am facing. Please provide for me and boost my faith along the way, in the name of Jesus I pray.

Prayer: Heavenly Father, You know my needs before I even ask, and You know the things that I am facing. Please provide for me and boost my faith along the way, in the name of Jesus I pray. AMEN!!! YES!!! HE is such a mighty provider! ! This week alone we have been blessed with over a $1000 worth of  back bills that just divinely went away... It has been an amazing week of God showing his grace and glory to us in ways that are unmistakably God's amazing and divine provisions! a $900 bill reduced to $80, a PG&E payment arrangement that they say I already paid because I over paid on my last months current, gifts of love being sent by loving people. We may still have a ways to go before we can say we are caught up but  we are so much farther ahead of the plan now that God has showed himself in such a big way this week. Praising his holy name!!! Thank you Pastor <3 God bless

Amen! I have learned to ask the Holy Spirit to lead me through the day every morning after I wake . It has made a huge difference in how I react to whatever comes across my path. It also brings me peace in knowing whatever happens He is right there helping me make the right choices and speak and do the right things.

Love this! Really need this in my life now.  Job I have doesn't pay enough to support myself. Applied for a job that would be the first step to a new career. Putting it in God's hands.

Amen... these verses really help me in time of need.

- God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.

- The LORD is my shepherd, I shall not want.

- And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that in all things, at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work.
