    The Seed from Refreshing Hope Ministries on Vimeo. We have a majestic oak tree in our yard that is older than me. It would probably take three men to reach their arms around the base of it at the moment. It stands about sixty feet tall, and the canopy is at least sixty feet across. During the hot...

    He went out, bearing his cross, to the place called "The Place of a Skull", which is called in Hebrew, "Golgotha", where they crucified him, and with him two others, on either side one, and Jesus in the middle. Pilate wrote a title also, and put it on the cross. There was written, "JESUS OF NAZARETH...

Taking Care of Pharaoh

  • He said to Abram, 'Know for sure that your offspring will live as foreigners in a land that is not theirs, and will serve them. They will afflict them four hundred years. I will also judge that nation, whom they will serve. Afterward they will come out with great wealth; Genesis 15:13 WEB

    God told Abram that his descendants would become slaves for four hundred years, but that He would punish the nation that did this and His descendants would come out with great possessions. This was completely fulfilled later in the exodus from Egypt. It was a deliberate discipline that ended with a planned outcome.

    Once I worked at a plant where the manager was much like a slave driver. I cheerfully ran a brass polishing machine all day in the heat where I silently prayed and listened to the Bible, trying to make the best of a bad situation.

    This season humbled me, stripped away unnecessary things, taught me to rely more on Him, got me back to the basics, and prepared me for His service. The plans of God have many layers. After a while the owners removed the manager and they promoted me to his position.

    Pharaoh was not as in control as he thought he was. God knew exactly what He was doing, and when the time was right He brought it to pass. God knew what He was doing in my life, and God knows what He is doing in your life. We just have to keep a good attitude while we wait on pharaoh to be taken care of.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father please help me see my situation through Your eyes. I know that I am not here by accident and that You have plans for me. I submit to Your will, in the name of Jesus Christ I pray.

Amen! Trust in Abba Father no matter how difficult our circumstances, appear to be. Yes I said appear to be, because His ways and thoughts are higher and we must always trust that He is working it out for our good.
