    Now after the death of Moses the servant of Yahweh, Yahweh spoke to Joshua the son of Nun, Moses' servant, saying, 'Moses my servant is dead. Now therefore arise, go across this Jordan, you, and all these people, to the land which I am giving to them, even to the children of Israel. I have given you...

    Fear Not from Refreshing Hope Ministries on Vimeo. Today I want to talk about fear, and the importance of pressing on even though we are afraid. When God calls you to do something, often fear is the first guardian that will be sent to stop you from accomplishing it. The Apostle Paul wrote to Timo...

    But you, when you pray, enter into your inner room, and having shut your door, pray to your Father who is in secret, and your Father who sees in secret will reward you openly. In praying, don't use vain repetitions, as the Gentiles do; for they think that they will be heard for their much speaking. ...

Shake it Off

  • He said to them, 'Wherever you enter into a house, stay there until you depart from there. Whoever will not receive you nor hear you, as you depart from there, shake off the dust that is under your feet for a testimony against them.' Mark 6:10 WEB

    When Jesus sent the disciples out to preach the good news, they often faced rejection. Jesus told them to shake it off, and then go on to the next town. There would be other people who would be glad to see them, waiting for them to arrive. The disciples were to try and share the good news, but never force themselves on those who did not want to hear it. When they encountered those, they were to shake it off, and move on.

    God has made you who you are, but the devil will always find someone who does not like you, or does not like what you are doing, or what you stand for, or maybe they are just jealous, and then put them near you so that you can hear all about it. If you do anything of value, there will be always be those that will oppose it.

    Shake it off, move on. There are people that would love to be around you right around the corner. Of course, you should behave correctly, but do not your waste time worrying about what someone else thinks of you. God loves you today, and what can man do to change that? Do not let someone else discourage you and hold you back from what God has in store for you.

    Never be ashamed to share your faith boldly, but if they don't want to hear you, then shake it off, change the subject, and don't force yourself on them. When they talk about you and put you down, shake it off and move on. There are others that will welcome good news.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father please speak to me and through me today. Put Your words in my heart and show me who to share it with. Turn me into salt that is good, and a light that is bright. Help me to shake off the bad, and focus on the good. In the name of Jesus Christ I pray.
