    Hezekiah prospered in all his works. However concerning the ambassadors of the princes of Babylon, who sent to him to inquire of the wonder that was done in the land, God left him, to try him, that he might know all that was in his heart. 2 Chronicles 32:30 WEBWhile attending classes at a school, t...

    Now after the death of Moses the servant of Yahweh, Yahweh spoke to Joshua the son of Nun, Moses' servant, saying, 'Moses my servant is dead.

    Fear Not from Refreshing Hope Ministries on Vimeo. Today I want to talk about fear, and the importance of pressing on even though we are afraid. When God calls you to do something, often fear is the first guardian that will be sent to stop you from accomplishing it. The Apostle Paul wrote to Timo...

The Database

  • Then David gave to Solomon his son the plans for the porch of the temple, for its houses, for its treasuries, for its upper rooms, for its inner rooms, for the place of the mercy seat; and the plans of all that he had by the Spirit, 1 Chronicles 28:11 WEB

    David gave Solomon all the plans for the new temple that he was to build, but all of those plans were originally given to David by the Holy Spirit. Even though Solomon was the wisest man that ever lived, his great wisdom was given to him by God, and wisdom is still available to God's people today if we will trust Him.

    A long time ago, before there was Google, before cell phones, when the DOS or UNIX command line was the standard computer interface, the Lord began 'inviting' me to work on computers for others. To me, it was just a hobby. I was trying to get through seminary and had no plans of working in the computer field. I loved electronics, but I felt that it was beyond my capability because I did not have the education, nor the skills needed for that.

    He would cause people to call me and if I would just agree to go, He would always give me the ability to fix the problem. Strangers would somehow get my phone number and call me with 'Please come! You are our last hope!' It was always scary because He pushed me into increasingly deeper things, with no one to turn to for advice but Him.

    One day an accountant's office called me to come look at their customer database. One of the computers on the network had crashed with the database open, and it had corrupted some of the tables. I had very little experience with DOS networks, or really any network at that time.

    This database was very valuable to them as it contained the tax returns of hundreds of clients over the last few years, and they had no backup. I did not even want to go, but they told me that they had no one else to call, and they did not know what else to do. I wanted to say 'No' but I felt the Lord saying 'Go.' So I went.

    It was around a 40 minute drive for me because they were in Pawley's Island South Carolina, and I was in Conway. I prayed all the way there: 'Lord I can't do this without You.' When I arrived, they walked me to the server and with butterflies in my stomach, I began to look it over. This was the first database that I had ever worked on before. The office gathered around and began watching me, and then suddenly I knew what to do. After a few commands, I had successfully repaired the database and they were back to work. They were my client for the next fifteen years.

    The Lord added clients like that one by one and soon I was taking care of accountants offices, banks, lawyers, insurance companies, doctors offices and more. As long as I would go, He would go with me and make me successful. This continued on until He pushed me into ministry. That was His original plan, but He needed to prepare me first.

    You do not have to walk alone today. There is a wisdom beyond the natural that is within your reach. When you are faced with things that you do not know how to do, turn to God, pray, and listen. Many times the answer will come. You are not alone while He is on the throne.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father please send me the Comforter that You promised, Your precious Holy Spirit. Walk with me and talk with me today, help me to recognize when You are speaking. I want more of You in my life, in the name of Jesus Christ I pray.

If God brings you to it, God will bring you through it!  I did not believe that once, but I am living proof that through God and his son Our Lord Jesus Christ, everything is possible and nothing is too tough for the King of Kings. The Holy Spirit is a Mighty Force.  Thank You Father in Heaven!!  Amen!!  Allelulia!! Amen!!

Dear Pastor Dion! Thank you for this timely and assuring message!!! I'm facing tasks now that are increasing in difficulties, and I know that I'm unable to do it by myself, but I know deep in my heart that the Lord put me there for a reason for His purpose! It is so comforting to know that I'm not walking alone, because His strength is made perfect in weakness, my weakness!!! Thanks be to my Lord, the Lord God Almighty!!!

Prayer: Heavenly Father please send me the Comforter that You promised, Your precious Holy Spirit. Walk with me and talk with me today, help me to recognize when You are speaking. I want more of You in my life, in the name of Jesus Christ I pray. Amen <3

 

Please Father, I want more of you in my life. Please show give me wisdom and all I need to do to get through each and every day. How to stay calm and to get myself well again. I can't do it with out You so please stop what's going on in my body it's all going to fast. Please settle the adrenal burnout or adrenal fatigue. I need help it's not at a good stage it's passed that. Let all the things that the doctor i see tomorrow night help me to with the other doctor plans. Now I know why I am so beat down and my heart beats so fast and the sweating and so weak that I can't walk to far at all. This didn't happen over night it took years after my operation and I know Jesus, you are the healer i'm asking You to heal my body from this. Let the Holy Spirit not leave me. I pray in Jesus, name. Amen. <3

 

Thank you Pastor Dion for your devotion. Sylvia, is in my prayers and I pray she is feeling well soon and all heals faster then she thought. In Jesus, name. Amen. <3 Blessing to you both. <3
