    Oh, magnify the LORD with me, and let us exalt His name together! I sought the LORD, and He answered me and delivered me from all my fears. Those who look to Him are radiant, and their faces shall never be ashamed. This poor man cried, and the LORD heard him and saved him out of all his troubles. Ps...

    Farther Along from Refreshing Hope Ministries on Vimeo. Today I want to talk about dealing with things that we don’t understand. There will be times in life when the path becomes dark, and we have to walk by faith. I want to begin in Psalm 119: (Psalm 119:105 NKJV) Your word is a lamp to...

    You were made alive when you were dead in transgressions and sins, in which you once walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the powers of the air, the spirit who now works in the children of disobedience; among whom we also all once lived in the lust of our flesh, d...

The Burning Heart

  • They said to each other, Did not our hearts burn within us while He talked to us on the road, while He opened to us the Scriptures? Luke 24:32 ESV

    The amplifier made a buzz as I unplugged my guitar and placed it in the case. Thirty minutes earlier I had been enjoying the party along with everyone else. I said goodbye to everyone, went home and into a room alone, shut the door, laid on the carpet and repented of everything that I could remember, and it was a lot.

    No one had to preach to me or tell me to change my ways. I had a burning inside me to know the Lord that I cannot explain. My whole life changed. All the old desires that I had were replaced with new ones. I understood what Paul meant when he said he counted all of his accomplishments as dung.

    If you want to bring someone to the Lord, be nice. Do not point out their faults as they are irrelevant. When they come to Jesus, all these will fall away so quickly you will wonder what happened. When God causes their heart to burn within them nothing else will matter, and nothing will hold them back.

    Prayer: Father, please light the fire within me. Cause my heart to burn for You and make Your plan for my life, perfectly clear, in the name of Jesus.

Quietly relevant how often do we want to make everything right in ourselves or someone else before accepting Jesus.  Great point accept, encourage, follow Christs example - be nice let HIM do HIS work! True as we view others and ourselves!  Great simple lesson Dion team!

There are a lot of people out there with good intencions, but Jesis said in John 6:44 that no one could come to Him unless the Father draws them. I can tell everyone that I understand that drawing and it does come at least for me as a burning in my heart to begin with. I guess if the calling is strong enough, you might feel even more. I so suggest that you answer that call with a yes! It will change your life!
