    Walking on Water from Refreshing Hope Ministries on Vimeo. Today I want to talk about the importance of believing the Lord, of shaking off the naysayers and continuing on your own journey. People have a tendency to not want you to go where they have not been. Leaders cannot lead you, where they h...

    Out of that terrible travail of soul, he'll see that it's worth it and be glad he did it. Through what he experienced, my righteous one, my servant, will make many 'righteous ones,' as he himself carries the burden of their sins. Therefore I'll reward him extravagantly' the best of everything, the ...

Get Me To The Church On Time

  • The children of Israel did that which was evil in Yahweh's sight, and forgot Yahweh their God, and served the Baals and the Asheroth. Judges 3:7 WEB

    Centuries ago, when it was time to go to church, there was an excitement in the air, and no one wanted to stay home. It was a convenient religion. Baal was the god of materialism and money, while Asheroth was the god of sex and fertility. Molech was the god of fire.

    Worshipping these gods often involved extravagant drunken orgies. You were 'required' to sleep with prostitutes, each other's spouses, as well as man to man and woman to woman. This often produced unwanted pregnancies and the offspring were conveniently burned as a sacrifice to Molech (Leviticus 18:21).

    I used to read the Bible and wonder how people could worship idols like this. It just sounded so foreign and distant to me. Then as I grew older, the Lord revealed to me that it is still rampant today. Thousands of years later, most of the world still chase these same gods and Christians are not immune. It seems to be our default mode, when not actively seeking God. Lust, adultery, immorality, the love of money, abortion, and so much more. You don't have to search hard to find all of this alive and well in the church today.

    We need to keep Jesus at the center of our life so that He can bring balance to all areas. There is nothing wrong with money or sex, but it cannot be the most important thing in your life or it will become a snare to you. No one can serve two masters, for you will love one and hate the other (Luke 16:13).

    There is a way out, and if you have been caught in this trap, start by putting God first in your life every day by beginning your day with prayer. Before long He will begin to guide you out of it and all the other things will fall into place. Don't forget the Lord your God and begin to unknowingly serve the others, for we are, what we repeatedly do.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father I thank You for guiding me and I want to make the most of my life. Please give me grace to flee from things that are bad for me as Joseph did. Forgive me of my past and lead me into a brighter future, in the name of Jesus Christ I pray.

Amen! Fully submitting to God and Jesus, leads to healing from addictions and the strength to resist temptation. As we yield control to the Holy Spirit and learn to obey we become truly free.

There are so many things we do are bad for us whether we realize it or not. Jesus knows what's best for us. Praise and obey Him.
