    For you formed my inmost being. You knit me together in my mother's womb. I will give thanks to you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Your works are wonderful. My soul knows that very well. My frame wasn't hidden from you, when I was made in secret, woven together in the depths of the earth....

    For we were saved in hope, but hope that is seen is not hope. For who hopes for that which he sees? But if we hope for that which we don't see, we wait for it with patience. Romans 8:24 WEB'Oh I don't want to face tomorrow. I have a bad, bad, feeling about this.' On and on we go into a spiral of sel...

    Baby Jesus from Refreshing Hope Ministries on Vimeo. Today I want to talk about “Who is Jesus?” I feel that we take it for granted that people actually know that much about Him. In the world we see Jesus as a baby in a manger, then crucified on a cross. The life of Jesus seems to span...

The Unnamed Servant

  • Let it happen, that the young lady to whom I will say, 'Please let down your pitcher, that I may drink,' then she says, 'Drink, and I will also give your camels a drink,''let her be the one you have appointed for your servant Isaac. By this I will know that you have shown kindness to my master. Before he had finished speaking, behold, Rebekah came out. Genesis 24:14 WEB

    This man was a servant of Abraham, sent on a quest by his master, and is not even named in scripture. He is merely called 'The servant.' In Genesis 24, this servant traveled to Nahor to find a wife for Isaac. He stopped at a well just outside the city with his ten camels, and he prayed for success. He asked the Lord for a sign: That the right girl would come by, and offer to draw water for his ten camels, which could drink up to twenty gallons each (200 gallons of water).Before he had finished speaking, Rebekah came out with her water jar on her shoulder, and did just as he had asked.

    I find it comforting that the Lord heard the prayer of the servant. Abraham is the 'Chosen One' in this story. Yet, the Lord answered this servant's prayer to the letter, while he was still praying it.

    When I first began attending church and learning about Jesus, I felt that I was insignificant. The pastor and the elders were on the inner circle and always had a word from the Lord, while I must have been on the outer ring. I believed that God knew 'about me' but I was unsure that He actually knew me by name.

    Then He began showing up in my work place, and people began to get saved around me. He would show up in smoky bars where I was playing music and give me scriptures and words of knowledge for people. Yea I know, it was hard for me to believe as well at the beginning. As my church row filled with new visitors, the pastor and elders began asking me what I had heard from the Lord during the week.

    The world always has a class system that ranks people according to status or position. When Jesus came to earth, He ignored all of that, and He began to eat with the sinners, the tax collectors, and the servants. The 'King of All Kings' had friends in low places.

    Never think that you are insignificant or that the Lord does not hear you because you are not the 'Chosen One' for He hears the prayers of the servants as well. Continue on taking it one day at a time and include Him in your life. You don't need to understand it all yet. Just let your relationship with Him grow over time. In His eyes, we are all His children, and if He has done it for someone else, He will do it for you.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father I thank You for all that You have done for me. Help my faith grow and lead me into spiritual adventures. Speak to me and through me Lord, in the name of Jesus Christ I pray.

Have you ever felt like you do not matter, I have! Jesus said in Luke 1:52; "He has put down the mighty from their thrones. And exalted the lowly! I can not speak for everyone, but I turned my will and my life over to Him years ago, and I still feel strongly that I made the right decision. Heavenly Father, please let us know the direction You would have us go in!

My competition said " you wanna grow your business?  Good luck finding a therapist!  We've been looking for 6 months to fill a position ". 2 weeks latter because of God I have a doctorate level Christian pastor therapist. Even if I had asked for such a man to work with me I wouldn't have believed it. But I acted in faith. I took a step and because of a God, His spirit, his love he acted for me in 1 weeks that which a very large company could not find in 6 months!!! God is alive. He does act. He is good. He is loving. He is forgiving!  Amen.
