    Now after the death of Moses the servant of Yahweh, Yahweh spoke to Joshua the son of Nun, Moses' servant, saying, 'Moses my servant is dead. Now therefore arise, go across this Jordan, you, and all these people, to the land which I am giving to them, even to the children of Israel. I have given you...

    Fear Not from Refreshing Hope Ministries on Vimeo. Today I want to talk about fear, and the importance of pressing on even though we are afraid. When God calls you to do something, often fear is the first guardian that will be sent to stop you from accomplishing it. The Apostle Paul wrote to Timo...

    But you, when you pray, enter into your inner room, and having shut your door, pray to your Father who is in secret, and your Father who sees in secret will reward you openly. In praying, don't use vain repetitions, as the Gentiles do; for they think that they will be heard for their much speaking. ...

As Scary As Hell

  • He ordered the furnace heated seven times more than it was usually heated. And he ordered some of the mighty men of his army to bind Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, and to cast them into the burning fiery furnace. Daniel 3:19 ESV

    As they were pushed to the edge of the roaring furnace, the heat coming up from the inferno killed the soldiers around them. Then they themselves were falling through the burning air, down into the fire below them. This was all because they had taken a stand for the Lord and refused to bow to Nebuchadnezzar's golden image.

    I am sure it was scary as they looked down into the furnace, but they landed safely at the bottom and found they were not alone. There was a fourth Person in the furnace with them. The ropes that bound them burned off of them but they were unharmed and did not even smell like smoke. A nice touch.

    You are going to make it. Though it looks as scary as hell itself, you are going to make it. Do not waver in your faith and do not compromise. When you get to the bottom you will find that you are not alone and only the things that are holding you back will be burned away.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father, I know that you are with me and that no weapon formed against me will prosper. I submit to Your will for my life and I know that you will bring me through this, in the name of Jesus.

Thank you God for ALWAYS being with me and reminding me that I am NEVER alone!  I am very scared now because of the news I heard today, and yes I have wanted to cry, but in the end, I know that when a door closes, this is setting me up for the next phase of my life.  I pray to you that all will be WELL!  Amen!!

Thank you so much for this great message. It has really encouraged me today in my trials and troubles to never give up and keep my eyes on Jesus ! He is the perfector of my faith and my Lord and savior! God will bring me through this trial unharmed and He will continue to bless me more and more and guide my steps in His will for my life.

Praise God I made it through the day at work! Sadly, it started up again while I was there. :(  Probably because I tried to eat.  Praying for Your Divine Healing again, Lord, to take this pain away. I am in Your Hands. Amen. Let Your Will be done.
