    Then he began to denounce the cities in which most of his mighty works had been done, because they didn't repent. 'Woe to you, Chorazin! Woe to you, Bethsaida! For if the mighty works had been done in Tyre and Sidon which were done in you, they would have repented long ago in sackcloth and ashes. Bu...

    The God who made the world and all things in it, he, being Lord of heaven and earth, doesn't dwell in temples made with hands, neither is he served by men's hands, as though he needed anything, seeing he himself gives to all life and breath, and all things. Acts 17:24 WEBWhen I was growing up, we us...

    RHM Devotional: Heroes and Monsters from Refreshing Hope Ministries on Vimeo. Today I want to talk about the potential of being a Hero, or a Monster, that exists inside each one of us. We get to choose. Once when Jesus was preaching from a boat, He told a parable about a man that sowed wheat in H...

That Peaceful Easy Feeling

  • Again, a second time he went away, and prayed, saying, 'My Father, if this cup can't pass away from me unless I drink it, your desire be done.' He came again and found them sleeping, for their eyes were heavy. He left them again, went away, and prayed a third time, saying the same words. Matthew 26:42 WEB

    On the night that Jesus was betrayed, He was troubled in His spirit and He went to the garden of Gethsemane to pray. He kept praying and He went back three times, saying the same words again.

    There is a time to pray in faith and stand on it, but here we see that Jesus Himself went back and prayed the same words again when He was troubled and sorrowful. He prayed until He had the peace in His spirit to face the trial that was soon coming.

    I often pray while driving down the road or walking through a grocery store, but the real peace comes to me when my face is on the carpet pouring my heart out to God. Pray hard, get real, get serious, and it can be life changing.

    Submit your life to God's plan with: 'My Father, Your will be done.' I have seen impossible situations change overnight through intense prayer, but you have got to be desperate. You have got to want it.

    A seminary teacher of mine while in his 40s developed a serious type of stomach cancer that no one had survived. He grew deathly sick, bed ridden, and they were ready to call in hospice. Then one night the church had a prayer meeting especially for him and they had him brought there. The intercessors anointed him with oil and prayed intensely for him for over four hours. He went home and began to vomit up an awful black liquid. When the next morning came, he no longer had cancer. He is now in his 70s, and still teaching.

    Today if you are facing something that will not leave you alone, and you are troubled, anxious and sorrowful, find a quiet place alone and spend time praying and sitting in the Lord's presence until the peace comes. If you are too weak, find others that will pray with you. When the peace finally comes, you will be able to face anything.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father please lead me into all that You have for me and surround me with people that are willing to pray. Help me see the big picture through Your eyes and to trust in You. Guide my decisions and protect me from deception, in the name of Jesus Christ I pray.

There is a real truth hidden in this message. God has a plan for your life! Too many of us want our plan God's way, you were born with a purpose, just maybe it is a better purpose than you have in mind. It is written; Submit to the Lord, then you can resist the devil, and he will flee from you. The important part of this is what we so often miss, the submitting part. God has a plan for your life, let Him have His way and you will find the peace you are looking for!

This is exactly the message I need to hear.  Thank you Pastor Dion! For being so fed by God that he works through you to get to me.  I was praying so hard not feeling peace.  But after your reading I prayed more and finally felt I was in Gods presence.  More tears came and the voice of God.  Which is food for me and means more than the world.

To Jim Jarrell:   The mystery is that HE worketh in you to will and do of His good pleasure.  So many things I just do not understand,  so I must just trust the LORD JESUS to work things out according to His will.
