    Do Not Be Dismayed from Refreshing Hope Ministries on Vimeo. Today I want to talk about becoming “Dismayed.” To be dismayed means “to be downcast, disappointed, disheartened, filled with terror.” It replaces hope and will lead you to a dark place. We become ineffective and...

    Count it all joy, my brothers, when you fall into various temptations, knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance. Let endurance have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing. James 1:2 WEBMy Dad was born during the great depression in the early 1930s...

    But as for me, I know that my Redeemer lives. In the end, he will stand upon the earth. After my skin is destroyed, then I will see God in my flesh, whom I, even I, will see on my side. My eyes will see, and not as a stranger. Job 19:25 WEBJob is the oldest book in the Bible, except for the first te...

The Bumpy Road

  • But Ruth said, Do not urge me to leave you or to return from following you. For where you go I will go, and where you lodge I will lodge. Your people shall be my people, and your God my God. Where you die I will die, and there will I be buried. Ruth 1:16 ESV

    Ruth walked along the road thinking about what had recently happened. Her husband had died, her father-in-law had died, and her brother-in-law as well. Now it was just her and Naomi her mother-in-law, and they were penniless.

    Naomi urged Ruth to turn back and go home to her family, but Ruth clung to her. Ruth told Naomi, 'Where you go, I will go, and where you stay, I will stay.' Even though much hardship lay before them, that is where Ruth's destiny was. God blessed Ruth after this, and she is in the lineage of Jesus.

    Sometimes we find that our destiny lies down the difficult path, and while on the way we are given a choice to turn back. Many turned back from following Jesus. Stay the course. God will fulfill His promises to you just as He did with Ruth, though it can be a bumpy road along the way.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father, help me to see the path that You have for me clearly. Please give me the grace to face this time and victory over those that would harm me, in the name of Jesus I pray.

    Note: Good morning! Just a reminder that our RHM Live Saturday service is happening tonight at 4pm EST! We will be continuing with our online Bible Study, covering Luke Chapter Ten. To find out more or join us this afternoon, go to this page: RHM Live
