    Rejected Identity from Refreshing Hope Ministries on Vimeo. Today I want to talk about rejection, especially in your calling, your gifts, your talents, by those who are familiar with you. We can read the Bible and feel like Jesus had an automatic win button in every circumstance. Storms, disease,...

    Remember the former things of old: for I am God, and there is none else; I am God, and there is none like me; declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times things that are not yet done; saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure; Isaiah 46:9 WEBDuring a sci-fi night...
  • Joseph came in to them in the morning, and saw them, and saw that they were sad. He asked Pharaoh's officers who were with him in custody in his master's house, saying, 'Why do you look so sad today?' They said to him, 'We have dreamed a dream, and there is no one who can interpret it.' Joseph said ...

Darkest Before the Dawn

  • And while he was still speaking with them, the messenger came down to him and said, This trouble is from the LORD! Why should I wait for the LORD any longer? But Elisha said, Hear the word of the LORD: thus says the LORD, Tomorrow about this time' 2Kings 6:33 ESV

    Joram was king when Samaria, the capital city of Israel, was besieged by Syria about 850 BC. Samaria was surrounded and a great famine spread through out the city. People were literally eating each other. This was a very dark time for the people of Samaria and the king begin to blame God.

    Finally the king snapped and decided that if he could not kill God, he would kill the man of God, and set out to find Elisha. Elisha though had a completely different view and told them that by the following day food would be so plentiful that it would cost pennies. What he said came to pass the following day.

    Your breakthrough is waiting near your breaking point. When it looks like you cannot go on and it becomes dark, and you are ready to let God have it with both barrels, you are so close. Don't give up! It is always the darkest right before the dawn.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father, I ask that you strengthen me and guide me through this time. Lord, I cannot do this without You! Send Your Comforter to me today, in the name of Jesus I pray.

    Note: "Let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need." (Hebrews 4:16) If you are in need of prayer, please feel free always to send your requests to our prayer network, where we and the team will be honored to lift you up!

GOD makes away out of no way. When we don't see away he has away for us. We just need to keep the faith. When we are at our weakest he is at his strongest. Amen

Prayer: Heavenly Father, I ask that you strengthen me and guide me through this time. Lord, I cannot do this without You! Send Your Comforter to me today, in the name of Jesus I pray. Amen! I'm a walking testament to this! I was in such a dark place when we lost our home and God didn't give up on me... He made sure I had support through here >>RHM, and many others praying with us. He made sure I had internet connection so I could stay connected to RHM. (Thank you so much) He sent me his heart blessings each and every day to remind me he is always with us, and when I was feeling most hopeless, he gifted Dave with work he can do & guided us to the perfect travel trailer to shelter us from the coming winter cold. We have a ways to go still>>saving up for a vehicle to tow our new home on wheels, but God definately showed his love and grace to me once again and lifted us from my dispair.Praise God for is unending love and grace <3 Thank you Pastor Dion :) God bless

I need this so much today! So much still to pack on the car, then clean the house, then leaving to drive at least to Topeka by tonight ( that's close to halfway to CO)  stress is making me feel physically sick. I can do all things in Christ who strengthens me! I cannot do this without the Lord. Please Lord, help me get everything packed on the car and help me clean the house and get my animals and I safely to our destination tonight.  In Jesus's name, Amen.
