    RHM Devotional: The Chain of Command from Refreshing Hope Ministries on Vimeo. Today I want to talk about the chain of command in the Kingdom of God. When we began RHM, I was blown away by some of the prayer requests that we received. Many people confused God with Santa Claus. I remember one in p...

    David therefore departed there, and escaped to the cave of Adullam: and when his brothers and all his father's house heard it, they went down there to him. Everyone who was in distress, and everyone who was in debt, and everyone who was discontented, gathered themselves to him; and he became captain...
  • Peter answered him and said, 'Lord, if it is you, command me to come to you on the waters.' He said, 'Come!' Peter stepped down from the boat, and walked on the waters to come to Jesus. But when he saw that the wind was strong, he was afraid, and beginning to sink, he cried out, saying, 'Lord, save ...

The What if

  • Which of you by being anxious can add a cubit to his height? If then you aren't able to do even the least things, why are you anxious about the rest? Luke 12:25 WEB

    We were so concerned about tomorrow that we could not sleep. We had received a subpoena late that evening and had to appear in court at seven in the morning, but so many things ran through our mind that we watched the sun go down and then come back up. It was all for nothing, and the case was thrown out. God came through, but I had worn myself down from worrying.

    Today has arrived and it is the tomorrow that you worried about yesterday. It is here now, and if you are reading this, you are still here as well. So many times in my life I have been worried about the 'What if?', only to find that it came to nothing. God took care of it overnight, or I faced it and it became part of my testimony that I share with others.

    When you dwell on what may come out of this, it will grow bigger and consume you. What you feed will grow, fear or faith. Face today's problems and leave tomorrow alone. Grace is given when you need it, not in advance. You will have the grace to deal with tomorrow when it gets here. Whenever you feeling like saying 'What if?', make that into: "What if God takes care of it?"

    Prayer: Heavenly Father I pray that You move in my life, show Yourself strong, deliver me from the things that hold me back. Fulfill Your will in my life and protect me from those that seek to do me harm, in the name of Jesus Christ.

Same thing happened to me. Only I was supoened on a Friday night for a 8:30 am Monday morning court date The same thing happened.  I went and there was no need for me to be there. God took care of it. Except I had a weekend of anxiety!  But I see how I am getting stronger. The more I do emotional work and grieve my past, feel my feelings the less I am controlled by them. People tend to think that if they shut off their emotions and ignore them they are strong. It is exactly the opposite. Most anxiety is based on fear and a lot of fear, not all, is based on lack of faith. Prayer, scripture and the complete and whole knowledge that God has you increaseds peace and decreases anxiety.  So.....  please feel your pain, cry through it fully so you can be done with it instead of latter being undone by it when you least expect it.

Amen, Michelle, thank you for sharing that! And yes, I believe if we don't acknowledge what is in us, it just festers, instead of becoming an opportunity to overcome!

Michelle, that is the best advice I have seen in a while, the old saying, "No Pain, No Gain" might very well be true!

I have found when fear comes in disguised as worry to just repeat to myself, Abba Father thy will be done. Just saying this over a few times is powerful, it releases full control to Him and it gives me peace.

Pastor Dion thanks for your devotion. I really like this saying and what to try to remember this. Whenever you feel like saying 'What if?', make that into: "What if God takes care of it?"  I have to say I even have the "What If" book but came a long way. I can still use these words because I still have some "What If's" in me I still have to work on this from time to time. Amen. <3
