    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...

The Last Minute

  • He waited seven days, the time appointed by Samuel. But Samuel did not come to Gilgal, and the people were scattering from him. So Saul said, 'Bring the burnt offering here to me, and the peace offerings.' And he offered the burnt offering. As soon as he had finished offering the burnt offering, behold, Samuel came. 1 Samuel 13:8 ESV

    Samuel had told Saul to meet him at Gilgal and that he would make an offering and tell Saul what he must do in the coming battle. Saul waited the seven days but when his army started to scatter, he panicked and made the offering himself. Of course, as soon as Saul finished his offering Samuel showed up.

    When the deadline starts approaching we often start sweating, panicking, what are we going to do? Where is God? They say God is never late but He also is not early. He arrives right on time. We are the ones that start to waver, and it is usually right before God shows up.

    Do not give up yet. God's help and provision for you is closer than ever. Often we find that when we reach the end of our rope, that God is there to catch us. To us, it seems like the very last minute.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father, I pray that You help me to hang on, draw me to You and give me a clear vision. Change my heart and cause me to trust in You, in the name of Jesus I pray.

    Note: Good morning! The highlighted group of the week is God''s Children Prayer Group: This group''s purpose is to pray for the children of this world that are sick or going through a difficulty in which they need to see God show up for them in a big way. The group is private, so all are welcome, but posts will only be seen by group members. ALSO, the Creation Photographers theme of the week is "Sun-up and Sun-down" based on Psalm 113:3! As always, you are free to post anything else that inspires you, too!

This message couldn't be more true!  God's timing can seem SO far off from what we 'think' we need, but, He is always on time!!  Just when I thought I was about to lose my house & be completely & literally homeless, God brought about His provisions within 5 days of all this happening & now I see the Rainbow  :o)  Praise God!!!  <3

Prayer: Heavenly Father, I pray that You help me to hang on, draw me to You and give me a clear vision. Change my heart and cause me to trust in You, in the name of Jesus I pray. Amen. <3

 

I'm hanging in there I always do. It does seem like God does come just when your at the end of your rope. Then you have peace for a while and something new might come along or the samething. Father, keep you strong loving arms on me always and keep my family and I safe. Free me from all my illnesses and give me love. peace and a sound mind. In Jesus, name. Amen <3
