    Baby Jesus from Refreshing Hope Ministries on Vimeo. Today I want to talk about “Who is Jesus?” I feel that we take it for granted that people actually know that much about Him. In the world we see Jesus as a baby in a manger, then crucified on a cross. The life of Jesus seems to span...

    Behold, there was a great earthquake, for an angel of the Lord descended from the sky, and came and rolled away the stone from the door, and sat on it. His appearance was like lightning, and his clothing white as snow. For fear of him, the guards shook, and became like dead men. The angel answered t...

    Jesus answered him, 'If I don't wash you, you have no part with me.' Simon Peter said to him, 'Lord, not my feet only, but also my hands and my head!' Jesus said to him, 'Someone who has bathed only needs to have his feet washed, but is completely clean. You are clean, but not all of you.' For he kn...

When He is Near

  • Seek Yahweh while he may be found. Call on him while he is near. Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts. Let him return to Yahweh, and he will have mercy on him, to our God, for he will freely pardon. Isaiah 55:6 WEB

    I enjoy playing music, computers, gaming, and I generally have my quiet time with the Lord each morning. However for a couple of months, I was called to pray every day at about 3 PM. It became a driving desire and the most important thing in my life for a season.

    Rather than doing the usual things that I would normally do, each day I would go into my room, close the door and pray from one to two-and-a-half hours. It was not your normal praying either. I laid on the floor with my face on the carpet in tears, and the Lord's presence would cover me like a blanket. There was such a sweet fellowship that it was all that I wanted to do. Eventually it lifted, life returned to normal, and my morning time was again fine.

    The Lord is always with us, but there are special times when He wants you to come aside and spend some quality time with Him. These are times when He draws near to you, calls you to break from the daily routine, and to pay Him attention.

    It was a very rewarding experience, yet it preceded a very dark time in my life where my faith was strained to the breaking point. I am not sure what I would have done if I had not spent the time in prayer leading up to it, and when I finally came out of the test, He pushed me into full time ministry. If you feel the Lord tugging at your heart and prompting you to come aside for a while, don't neglect Him. It is for your own good.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father I thank You. please have Your way in my life. Lead me and I will follow. Call me and I will come. I want more of You in my life today, in the name of Jesus Christ I pray.

    Note: "Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you." (Jeremiah 29:12). If you have a prayer need, we are here for you! We and the prayer team are ready to lift you up at our private prayer page: RHM Prayer Network

Lately for quite a few months now, He is calling me to pray when He awakens me around between 2 and 4 AM. So I pray and then I find myself in a place of discomfort when I cannot just fall back to sleep. so I then pray back to Him, "

Matthew 11:28  (NIV)

28 “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.

Before I know it I am dreaming. Works far better than any man made or natural herbal sleep aid.

Truly believe this...trusting is tested in hard times more the a decision to forsake things I rather do when keeping a discipline or most of all a true desire to be WITH the Lord who loves us so much to commune and pray for others on my prayer list.  Some on the list are horrific happenings t those I know and those I choose to pray for because it is horrific to me.
