    He entered into one of the boats, which was Simon's, and asked him to put out a little from the land. He sat down and taught the multitudes from the boat. When he had finished speaking, he said to Simon, 'Put out into the deep, and let down your nets for a catch.' Simon answered him, 'Master, we wor...

    Yahweh spoke to Manasseh, and to his people; but they didn't listen. Therefore Yahweh brought on them the captains of the army of the king of Assyria, who took Manasseh in chains, bound him with fetters, and carried him to Babylon.

The Beaver Dam

  • Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me. Your rod and your staff, they comfort me. Psalms 23:4 WEB

    It was dusk dark and I was alone in the middle of a swamp called the Beaver Dam. I had ridden my dirt bike over to my cousin's house that day. He stayed about four miles from us through dense woods and swamp. We had made a path to ride through the beaver dam to each others house.

    We were both about ten years old and after playing video games all evening, I realized it was getting dark and I had no headlight, so I started home. Riding through the swamp on a motorcycle at night alone with no lights was scary, but I soon found it could be made much worse.

    The bike was a Suzuki RM80 that was raced in motocross before I got it. I had worked it out in the tobacco fields and it was the fastest in the community. There were bears in the area, and I could feel one behind me. I kept glancing back into the shadows and would give the bike a bit more throttle each time. Before long I was almost wide open, and that was fast. I was cruising down the muddy, rutted path and forgot all about the canal ditch that I had to soon cross in the dark.

    I hit the far side of that ditch at about fifty mph and launched way up into the air. As the bike and I were flipping end over end, I was already kicking to get it restarted. I landed in a huge pile of mud, rolled a few times, and took straight back off. I don't believe the wheels ever stopped turning. I was so terrified that my life was flashing before my eyes, but I ended up making it home safely.

    The moral of the story is this: You can make a bad situation, so much worse than it really is. The more that you dwell on it, think about it, talk about it, the more that it will grow in your mind, until it will consume you in pure panic. That was the most scared that I have ever been in my life, and it was all in my mind. I would have been perfectly safe to have stopped, built a fire, and spent the night camping. Don't let your fears snowball and consume you. Submit to God, resist the devil and he will flee from you (James 4:7). Never allow circumstances to deceive you into believing that God has forgotten you.

    Remember: What you feed will grow, and what you starve, will die.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father, I pray that You cover me with Your peace, fill me with Your Spirit, and remove the fear and anxiety from me. Lead me into living a truly victorious life, in the name of Jesus Christ I pray.

    Note: 'For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them.' (Matthew 18:20) If you are in need of prayer, please do send your requests to our private prayer network, where we and the prayer team join together for you! RHM Prayer Network

Prayer: Heavenly Father, I pray that You cover me with Your peace, fill me with Your Spirit, and remove the fear and anxiety from me. Lead me into living a truly victorious life, in the name of Jesus Christ I pray, Amen.  Lord my granddaughter needs you right now Lord, she is experiencing anxiety and has not told me why. Maybe, she doesn't know why; Lord whatever it is please help her to focus and reach out to you in prayer or me so she can get the help she needs. She is 20 years old, in nursing school. I have raised her since she was a baby, so I love her as if I gave birth to her. She needs you Lord.

You are so right, Pastor Dion! We can be our own worst enemies How often did I panic, filled with anxiety and fear, instead of going straight to the Lord in prayer and have a peace about it. Thank you for honestly sharing your past experiences to be a lesson to us all!
