    Flow Through Me from Refreshing Hope Ministries on Vimeo. Today I want to talk about something that is at the very core of knowing Jesus: the Holy Spirit. This is fundamental stuff, but sometimes we build our doctrines so high that we can no longer see the foundation, yet it is very important tha...

    But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; Isaiah 64:6 KJVAs the preacher looked over the congregation, pondering his next victim, I sank lower and lower in my chair. He always chose someone at random from the congregation to pray, so everyone tried to avoid ...

    Walking by the sea of Galilee, he saw two brothers: Simon, who is called Peter, and Andrew, his brother, casting a net into the sea; for they were fishermen. He said to them, 'Come after me, and I will make you fishers for men.' They immediately left their nets and followed him. Matthew 4:18 WEBAs J...

Blood in the Water

  • He heals the broken in heart, and binds up their wounds. Psalms 147:3 WEB

    When sharks sense blood in the water, they will go into a feeding frenzy where they attack the wounded and devour them, even if it is another shark. They get so caught up in this that they may even turn and attack each other. The water becomes cloudy, everything becomes blurred, and everyone around them becomes a target.

    Church life can be messy. We are all imperfect people trying to represent a perfect God, and when we fail, people get wounded. Many are just victims of church abuse and it is not their fault at all. If you get deeply involved in a church, chances are that you are going to find things that you don't like about it. You can find yourself being one of the wounded.

    Jesus reached out to the hurting, he touched the outcasts, he ate with the sinners, and He told us parables like the good Samaritan who stopped to help the wounded man. We are to help the wounded among us, not turn and destroy their lives, dash their hopes, and drive them away.

    Today if you know someone that has been wounded, reach out to them. You might just be the only friend that they have on earth at a time when everyone else has turned their back on them. If you are one of the wounded, hang on to God and understand that God still loves you, but His followers can often fail to show it.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father I thank You for today. Please forgive me of hurting others, as I forgive those that have hurt me. Help me to live a life of victory and make my enemies live at peace with me. Help me be slow to speak and to always think first. Use me to heal the hurting, rescue the lost, forgive the unforgiving, and bind up their wounds, in the name of Jesus Christ 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 Fourteen. To find out more or join us this afternoon, go to this page: RHM Live

Amen! We as Christians are supose to be the body of Christ. We are to become an army so to speak. I have often said that the church is the only army I am aware of who shoots it's own wounded. Where is the healing in that?

O Lord, my Lord, please continue to mold me and shape me, I'm so weak and I need Your strength, guidance and direction! Just like Paul said "The things I should do, I do not, and the things I shouldn't do I do" - that's me. Please don't give up on me, in Jesus name I ask and pray, Amen!!!
