    Do Not Be Dismayed from Refreshing Hope Ministries on Vimeo. Today I want to talk about becoming “Dismayed.” To be dismayed means “to be downcast, disappointed, disheartened, filled with terror.” It replaces hope and will lead you to a dark place. We become ineffective and...

    Count it all joy, my brothers, when you fall into various temptations, knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance. Let endurance have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing. James 1:2 WEBMy Dad was born during the great depression in the early 1930s...

    But as for me, I know that my Redeemer lives. In the end, he will stand upon the earth. After my skin is destroyed, then I will see God in my flesh, whom I, even I, will see on my side. My eyes will see, and not as a stranger. Job 19:25 WEBJob is the oldest book in the Bible, except for the first te...

On The Job Training

  • I have said these things to you, while still living with you. But the Counselor, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, he will teach you all things, and will remind you of all that I said to you. John 14:25 WEB

    When my hand touched the box, a new light illuminated on the front of it. When I moved my hand away, it went out. I inspected it more closely and found that the network cable was loose at the back of the hub. I re-crimped the cable and the computer was back online within minutes.

    Thirty minutes before, I knew absolutely nothing about computer networks, but an insurance company had called me with a broken one. I worked on computers as a hobby and they had gotten my number from a friend. This was in the early nineties and even computers were rare here, much less a network of them. I had never actually seen a networked computer.

    When they called, I started to tell them no, but inside I could feel the Holy Spirit urging me forward, so I told them that I would come look at it. All the way there I fought back panic, and wondered what I was even doing, and why they had called me in the first place. I had never gone to school for computers. They were merely a hobby, and I felt completely unqualified.

    I prayed all the way there, met the manager, and then somehow walked straight to the network hub, which just happened to be sitting on top of a filing cabinet that I leaned against. I laid my hand right on the problem and within ten minutes it was fixed and now they thought that I was a network guru. That office became my client for the next seventeen years. We still help them occasionally today. The Lord did that day after day in my life.

    The Holy Spirit will teach you 'all' things. God is amazingly smart, and ahead of the cutting edge. He can give you the answers to the difficult problems and make you look like a genius in the process. Never neglect prayer. It is not just for spiritual purposes. 'But if any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach; and it will be given to him' (James 1:5).

    When the Lord opens the door, pray and step through it. He will equip you for the job and if you step out in faith, you cannot fail. David stepped out against Goliath when no one else would. We love to prepare and have it all planned out in advance, but the Holy Spirit will teach you all things and He specializes in on-the-job training. Go and I will go with you.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father please set up divine encounters for me today and give me the wisdom to accomplish them. I love to see You work in my life and I yield myself to You. Use me, in the name of Jesus Christ I pray.
