    Good Neighbors from Refreshing Hope Ministries on Vimeo. Today I want to talk about the importance of being a good neighbor. Ever since Adam and Eve had kids and one killed the other, it has been an ongoing thing, learning to live with one another. Most of the ten commandments are about how we tr...

    When I kept silence, my bones wasted away through my groaning all day long. For day and night your hand was heavy on me. My strength was sapped in the heat of summer. Selah. I acknowledged my sin to you. I didn't hide my iniquity. I said, I will confess my transgressions to Yahweh, and you forgave t...

The Mighty Warrior

  • Yahweh's angel appeared to him, and said to him, 'Yahweh is with you, you mighty man of valor!' Judges 6:12 WEB

    Dust and chaff drifted through the air as Gideon threshed the wheat. He was hiding inside of a winepress so that the Midianite raiders would not come and take the little that they had. With no breeze at all, it was dirty and hot.

    While he was working, the angel of the Lord appeared to Gideon and called him a mighty warrior, a mighty man of valor. Though in reality, Gideon was the least in his family, who was the least in his tribe. Gideon was the least, of the least.

    The Lord saw something inside of Gideon, that Gideon did not know was there. There was more to Gideon than the normal eye could see. God used Gideon and three-hundred men to defeat thousands of Midianites without lifting a sword, just because Gideon believed God. Even though he was scared, he did what the Lord told him one step at a time, and he won the battle. Gideon went from a zero, to a hero.

    God knows what He put inside of you, and you are well able to do what He calls you to do. Even if you are the least of the least, the smallest of the small, God has a plan for you and He will enable you to complete it. He sees something in you that no one else does. If you will spend sometime alone with Him and get in tune, He will take your life to a new level, and He will make the smallest, into a mighty warrior.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father I thank You for equipping me with all that I need to do my part here. I choose to trust You even when I feel under qualified, like I don't belong, like I am not the one that should be doing this. I know that if You bring me to it, You will bring me through it, and I am holding on to You today. In the name of Jesus Christ I pray.

I am so like Gideon  I’m fearful and hiding and think little of me. I am the least and almost every day I think,  this won’t last,  how can I do this,  I wonder when it will end? I don’t see today with eyes of faith or hope today.   I feel under pressure and negativity around me   We had much miscommunication at a doctors visit yesterday and it caused so much stress for my daughter and me  I really felt like they were rude to us but I wasn’t perfect either  I Ozzed back their negativity and today I woke up with a spirit of negativity  please restore me Lord
