    Good Neighbors from Refreshing Hope Ministries on Vimeo. Today I want to talk about the importance of being a good neighbor. Ever since Adam and Eve had kids and one killed the other, it has been an ongoing thing, learning to live with one another. Most of the ten commandments are about how we tr...

    When I kept silence, my bones wasted away through my groaning all day long. For day and night your hand was heavy on me. My strength was sapped in the heat of summer. Selah. I acknowledged my sin to you. I didn't hide my iniquity. I said, I will confess my transgressions to Yahweh, and you forgave t...

From Terrified To Well Supplied

  • Our God, will you not judge them? For we have no might against this great company that comes against us. We don't know what to do, but our eyes are on you. All Judah stood before Yahweh, with their little ones, their wives, and their children. Then Yahweh's Spirit came... 2 Chronicles 20:12-14 WEB

    When a vast enemy army gathered together with the intention of sacking Judah, Jehoshaphat the king did not know what to do. They were heavily outnumbered and there seemed to be no way that they could stand against the three kingdoms that were coming to attack them. He turned to God in desperation, called a fast, and prayed: 'Lord, I don't know how we are going to survive this, but our eyes are on You!' Then it reads: 'Yahweh's Spirit came...'

    The next day they went out to face the enemy and Jehoshaphat put the praise team out in front of the troops. He was all in and saw God as their only hope. They began to sing: 'Praise the LORD, For His mercy endures forever.'

    When they began to sing and to praise, their enemies became confused and began to attack each other, wiping themselves out. Then Israel spent three days picking up all of the enemies possessions (2 Chronicles 20:25). So Jehoshaphat and his people went from being terrified, to well supplied over night. What looked like the end for them, turned into an incredible blessing instead.

    When faced with an impossible circumstance, do not forget your most important weapon: Prayer and fasting. When you do not know what to do, turn to the One that does. The Lord loves you, He cares for you, and if you ask Him, He will help you. We often have not because we ask not (James 4:2). Believe in the LORD your God, and you shall be established; believe His prophets, and you shall prosper' (2 Chronicles 20:20).

    Prayer: Heavenly Father I thank You for hearing me when I pray to You. My eyes are on You Lord and I don't know how all of this is going to work out, but I choose to trust in You. Please send Your Spirit to me and be a part of my life today, in the name of Jesus Christ I pray.

Great reminder, Pastor Dion.  I have so many issues that I am dealing with that I tend to lose priority.  I keep asking God for direction and for the wisdom to know what is next, and what He wants me to do to further His work.  Sometimes it seems He doesn't respond in the time I want, but then I think back to my favorite verse, Isaiah 40:31 (KJV)  "But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint."

Maybe this is His way to tell me to slow down, recharge, and then He will make things happen that He wants to be next...

Please pray for me that I keep my total faith and strength on the Lord and let the process unfold at His pace.
