    Very early in the morning, while it was still dark, Jesus got up, left the house and went off to a solitary place, where He prayed. Mark 1:34 NIVIt was early in the morning as I walked into my little prayer room. After praying for a few minutes I sat in the quiet solitude, mostly wondering how we we...

    Then he began to denounce the cities in which most of his mighty works had been done, because they didn't repent. 'Woe to you, Chorazin! Woe to you, Bethsaida! For if the mighty works had been done in Tyre and Sidon which were done in you, they would have repented long ago in sackcloth and ashes. Bu...

The Roller Coaster

  • After many days the word of the LORD came to Elijah, in the third year, saying, 'Go, show yourself to Ahab, and I will send rain upon the earth.' 1Kings 18:1 ESV

    I remember some friends once got me on a roller coaster. We waited for everyone to board and then it started slowly climbing up and up the rails. After a pretty long wait, it crossed the crest of the hill and the real ride began. It was pretty boring until it started and then oh my'hang on!

    Elijah waited for three years, just waiting, waiting, and then waiting some more. But when the Lord spoke this scripture to him, within hours, he had a showdown with 950 false prophets, caused fire to come down from heaven, executed the false prophets, turned Israel back to the Lord, caused it to rain when it had not for three years, and then outran a chariot back to town. I think he had crossed the top of the hill and was hanging on for dear life at that point.

    Don't give up on God during the hill climb. When His plan finally comes together it can move very quickly and you can be racing just to stay up with Him. The roller coaster climbs the hill slowly but when God says it is now time, hang on for the ride to come.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father, thank You for being there for me. Though it comes slow, I know that it is coming and that You have plans for me. Guide me and teach me along the way, in the name of Jesus I pray.

This word encourage me to keep waiting on God for the big change: I am a widow without a job so I had not been paying the mortgage for 3 years out of 28 years that I did paid, this is a situation I wish God help me to change with a miracle to not lose my house, I do not have where else to go; my only son had broken relations with God and with me many years ago so I need another miracle for my son change of heart.toward God and toward me. Sometimes I wish to have a pet to whom embrace, to whom talk looking at the eyes, but my finances need a change first to take a good care of him. Please, your prayers are highly apreciated.

Oh my! Just literally walked out of my prayer closet and then read this. And the thing is... I was literally just praying about something that I have been waiting on for 16 years. I'd kinda been feeling like giving up. But then I walk out of my prayer closet, read this, and am encouraged to keep trusting!!! Thank you as always, Pastor Dion. Your devos are always on time!

Thanks, Pastor Dion, I needed this TODAY!  I am in the slow climb mode, right now.  I know things are about to happen, but it seems to be taking forever to get all the paperwork approved to get started...  This analogy makes me laugh, but it is also right on the mark.  I am sitting back waiting for the ride to begin...  I'm hangin' on!!!

Thanks for today's message! I always have to remember that a month--or even a year--is nothing to God! He will always work on His timetable, not mine.
