    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...

    He said to them, 'Go into all the world, and preach the gospel to the whole creation.' Mark 16:15 WEBJesus spoke these words to the eleven Apostles before He ascended to heaven. There is so much that could be said about this, but today we cover 'The Gospel.' The word Gospel means 'glad tidings, good...

    Hear, then, the parable of the farmer. When anyone hears the word of the Kingdom, and doesn't understand it, the evil one comes, and snatches away that which has been sown in his heart. Matthew 13:18 WEBOnce while praying about something, I felt like I heard a small whisper back from the Lord, encou...

Broken Radios

  • Saul said to Samuel, 'I have sinned; for I have transgressed the commandment of Yahweh, and your words, because I feared the people, and obeyed their voice. 1 Samuel 15:24 WEB

    The Lord sent Saul on a quest, but he failed because of his fear of man. The Lord told Saul through the prophet Samuel to completely wipe out the Amalekites, but for a short-term gain, Saul 'overlooked' the commands of the Lord and kept the best cattle, the sheep, and the enemy king as plunder.

    The Lord wanted them all destroyed as they were probably demon-infested just like the swine became in Gerasenes (Mark 5:13). Saul wanted to please the people more than God, so he allowed them to keep the live stock as plunder, and they brought the demons home with them. When they killed the live stock and the demons lost their current house, they just wandered around until they could enter the people around them. (Luke 11:24).

    Samuel told Saul 'Because you have rejected Yahweh's word, he has also rejected you from being king'. Then Saul pleaded with him to stay so that he would not be embarrassed in front of the people. What the people would think was on the forefront of his mind, not that he had just lost the kingship. After this, God moved on and anointed David. Where Saul was fearful and failed, David had a strong faith in God and even faced Goliath as a youth, when Saul and his army would not.

    A mentor of mine worked at an electronics repair shop when he was a young man. One day his boss told him to be sure and replace a certain part on every radio that came through, whether it needed it or not, simply because the part had a good markup. He silently ignored the request and after a couple of weeks, the boss came back and asked him why he was not doing what he had told him.

    My friend was married with young children, so he really need the job, but he explained to them that he was a Christian and he could not do that. He told them that he would understand if they needed to let him go, but that he could not compromise on this because it was against his faith. They became angry at first, and he thought that he was on his way out. Instead of firing him, they promoted him and gave him a key to the shop because they knew that he could be trusted.

    If you are ever given a choice between obeying God or man, always choose God. It will work out for your good regardless of what may happen in the short term, for He has your back when you are obedient to His word. The fear of man is always a short-term gain, but God's plan is for eternity.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father please guide me today and help me make the right decisions. Let Your voice ring through in such a way that I cannot miss it, and give me the grace and wisdom to do what is right. In the name of Jesus Christ I pray.
