    Training Wheels from Refreshing Hope Ministries on Vimeo. Today I want to talk about the journey of becoming more like Jesus, and it is a journey. I will be talking mostly about the life of the Apostle Peter, but I want to begin with something Jesus said to all of His disciples in Luke 6:40: A d...

    let's hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering; for he who promised is faithful. Let's consider how to provoke one another to love and good works, not forsaking our own assembling together, as the custom of some is, but exhorting one another, and so much the more as you see the Day appr...

    By faith, Abraham, when he was called, obeyed to go out to the place which he was to receive for an inheritance. He went out, not knowing where he went. By faith, he lived as an alien in the land of promise, as in a land not his own, dwelling in tents with Isaac and Jacob, the heirs with him of the ...

This Is The One

  • Jesse made seven of his sons to pass before Samuel. Samuel said to Jesse, 'Yahweh has not chosen these.' Samuel said to Jesse, 'Are all your children here?' He said, 'There remains yet the youngest. Behold, he is keeping the sheep.' Samuel said to Jesse, 'Send and get him, for we will not sit down until he comes here.' He sent, and brought him in. Now he was ruddy, with a handsome face and good appearance. Yahweh said, 'Arise! Anoint him, for this is he.' Then Samuel took the horn of oil, and anointed him in the middle of his brothers. 1 Samuel 16:10 WEB

    While the sheep grazed peacefully, David reached down and picked up another rock. Placing it in his sling, he twirled it about before releasing it and watching it soar through the air. David was out in the field tending the sheep day after day, playing his harp, spending time with the Lord, and he had no idea that his future was being formed while doing it.

    David had seven brothers, all who were older and bigger than he was, but God chose him because He looked on David's heart. David spent time with God in the field when he was tending sheep, and God took his life to a new level while he was doing it.

    David protected his dad's sheep when he was little, then God's sheep when he was grown. The sling that he played with in the fields, later killed Goliath. God will use the trivial things that you learn along the way to prepare you for something bigger.

    Today, talk with God wherever you are, whatever you are doing. While in the field, or in the home, talk with Him. The relationship that you develop in the simple things will lead on to something much greater. God just might say: 'This is the one, anoint them for My work.'

    Prayer: Heavenly Father I thank You for bringing me this far. Guide me into all that You have and help me to make the most of my time here on earth. Help me to know You in a deeper way Lord, in the name of Jesus Christ I pray.

God speaks to us from unexpected sources. His timing is always perfect!

This message could not have come at a better time than this in my life for me...with both my daughters gone out for higher studies,,,,I was suddenly lonely. After the basic household chores post lunch I was left with nothing to do! I would lie awake in the nights and pray God shows or gives me something meaningful and constructive to do. First week or so tried social media, some You tube videos...nothing interested me. I wanted to hear His Word! Tried some sites....nothing! I was preparing to appear for an Online Bible Quiz and co incidentally it happened to be Luke! the same book on which Refreshing Hopes is doing a Bible Study!! I intended to just study for the quiz. Then I went through the site and found it interesting! And by His Grace, through Pastor's message, I got an insight into my status in life today . It was like God answering me.!! Like David I too should sincerely do my best in whatever n wherever I have been placed and continue to strengthen my relationship with Him by seeking Him and studying His word! That's all that needs to be done! To prepare myself to meet my Lord. Till he comes!!!!

Thank you Refreshing Hope for refreshing my hope!

Stay Blessed!

One never knows how or who God will use next. Talking with God is so important, when He is ready, He can and will speak back and chances are, you will understand what He is saying! Father, train each of us to hear you more clearly!
