    Do Not Be Dismayed from Refreshing Hope Ministries on Vimeo. Today I want to talk about becoming “Dismayed.” To be dismayed means “to be downcast, disappointed, disheartened, filled with terror.” It replaces hope and will lead you to a dark place. We become ineffective and...

    But as for me, I know that my Redeemer lives. In the end, he will stand upon the earth. After my skin is destroyed, then I will see God in my flesh, whom I, even I, will see on my side. My eyes will see, and not as a stranger. Job 19:25 WEBJob is the oldest book in the Bible, except for the first te...

The Lamp

  • Your word is a lamp to my feet, And a light for my path. Psalms 119:105 WEB

    The old oil lamps that were used in biblical times had a small radius of light. They would light the path just a few feet ahead of you, and you could not see very far down the road. When traveling by night, you could see just enough to take the next step. When you did take that step, the circle of light moved with you, and then you could see a little farther. The entire journey was made like this, one step at a time.

    I have heard it said that if you took a 'soon to be bride' into her new house and showed her all the dirty dishes that she would have to wash, the stack of dirty diapers that she would have to change, all the meals that she would have to prepare, and all the housework there would be to do, she would run for the hills. So it is with us. God shows us just enough of the path for today. Tomorrow, He will show us what we need for that.

    Jesus told us: 'Therefore don't be anxious for tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself' (Matthew 6:34). When the problems show up, so will the answer. Don't worry about problems that do not even exist yet. You will only exhaust yourself.

    Just because you are struggling with something, it does not mean that God is not with you. Living a Christian life does not mean that we will not face trouble, but that God can be trusted to handle the trouble when it arrives.

    So many times I have wanted to know what was farther down the road, what was coming, but God gives us enough light for today. I have always found that when tomorrow came, that He took care of that as well.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father I thank You for lighting my path and the way that I should go. Let me walk in Your light all the days of my life and guide my steps. Please send me Your peace today and ease my mind and fears, in the name of Jesus Christ I pray.
