    Joseph dreamed a dream, and he told it to his brothers, and they hated him all the more. He said to them, 'Please hear this dream which I have dreamed: for, behold, we were binding sheaves in the field, and behold, my sheaf arose and also stood upright; and behold, your sheaves came around, and bowe...

    He took a towel, and wrapped a towel around his waist. Then he poured water into the basin, and began to wash the disciples' feet, and to wipe them with the towel that was wrapped around him. Then he came to Simon Peter. He said to him, 'Lord, do you wash my feet?' Jesus answered him, 'You don't kno...

This Place Stinks

  • Then the king was exceedingly glad, and commanded that Daniel be taken up out of the den. So Daniel was taken up out of the den, and no kind of harm was found on him, because he had trusted in his God. Daniel 6:22 ESV

    Daniel had spent a long night in a den of lions and the stench of rotted meat and lion poo had to be pretty pungent. He had done nothing wrong and was just trying to serve God as best as he could in a foreign land. When the sun came up the next day, the king set Daniel free and fed his enemies to the hungry lions. Daniel then prospered greatly.

    Once I had a personal revival where I was zealously serving God and I fasted and prayed daily for Him to remove anything holding me back from Him. Well that didn't take long and within weeks, my great paying job as a foreman was gone. After unemployment ran out, I had to take the worst job that I ever had as a laborer in a brass polishing plant for one third of the pay. Every day I went home as black as smut.

    I served faithfully there, though at first it required serious humbling on my part. I started out sweeping the floor. In time I was the manager. There was a mini-revival that broke out in the plant and several people got saved. Then, ever so gently, the Lord closed that down and placed me in my own business, using some of the skills that He had been teaching me along the way.

    You will not always be in a place that stinks. If you humble yourself and serve faithfully where God has placed you, He will raise you up. You are not forgotten or unseen. In fact your attitude in the stinky place is being watched closely by a great cloud of witnesses. Keep the best attitude that you can and keep thanking God for He has not forgotten about you.

    Prayer: Father, I know that you have not forgotten about me! I know that you see where I am. Please give me the grace to get through this day and work your perfect will in my life, in the name of Jesus.

    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

 I need to be more grateful for the blessings and the job that I do have right now.  It is a servant’s job. My life’s work to give to the hurting the suffering and emotionally distressed. And yes I do indeed get burned out. I have to closely watch And keep tabs on my level of balance. God is teaching me the importance of balance giving to others and giving to self.

Amen!  Thank you Pastor for today's message!                                                                                                             Thinking about the saying: "Bloom where you are planted" - I want to be my Heavenly Father's child, more than anything else in this world!!! So, I accept His will wherever He puts me or plants me. He knows what's best for me, He knows my weaker areas and where I need to grow and be humbled! So I thank you, Lord, for teaching me   patience, endurance, contentment in what ever state I'm in!
