    He said, The LORD is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer, my God, my rock, in whom I take refuge, my shield, and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold and my refuge, my savior; You save me from violence.

Home Is On The Other Side

  • Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name, you are mine. When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overwhelm you; when you walk through fire you shall not be burned, and the flame shall not consume you. Isaiah 43:1 ESV

    It was almost dark and we had to ride our motorcycles through the swamp to get back home. We had done it many times, but this time it had rained a lot and we came to a place where the trail was completely flooded out. Home was on the other side and we had to go through the water to get there. I started in and could see the red sandy bottom of the stream as I started through the water. Then I saw the water turn dark and the front wheel dipped down.

    Thinking it was just a dip and that it would surely come up the other side, I hit the gas. The next thing I knew I was swimming in fast running water with limbs and debris streaming past me. It was shoulder deep. The motorcycle was laying on the bottom of the creek. It was scary. I had to fish around on the bottom to find the motorcycle and drag it out. We removed the spark plug, drained the water from it and pushed for about half a mile before we got it started again, then we made it on home.

    It is always scary to face a trial, but God will bring you through it and you will make it to the other side. There is no testimony without passing through the test. There is no glory without first living the story. There is no victory without a challenge. In this scripture, they went through the water, but God got them through to the other side.

    No matter what you are going through today, God wants you to overcome but you will have to put on your gloves and fight if you want it. He wants you to be a winner, and if you will simply walk with Him one day at a time you will beat this thing. Home is on the other side.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father, I pray that you help me pass through whatever trial I may face. I trust in You and know that you have my best interest in mind, in the name of Jesus.

    Note: "Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer" (Romans 12:12). 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

If he brings you to it, he will bring you through it. This is how I live. Trusting and remembering GOD s' Awesome Grace and Mercy over my life. I start everyday remembering how he has Blessed me so I don't forget when the Road gets rough. I go back to what I know best. To ask Prayer Warriors to pray for me and with me.  I jump into GOD s' Arms and ask JESUS to hold me a little tighter. But I know through it all he got me.

Amen! Thank you Pastor Dion, I really needed to hear this today! Going through more stormy trials, it seems the waters are getting deeper and deeper ... Need to cling to the Lord and His word and trust Him that He will see us through! It just is so hard to patiently wait on Him. But He is good and has helped so many times in the past, so I'll praise Him dispite what's going on and the current circumstances

I always marvel at the way God sends His lessons to me through multiple voices.  Here’s a thought from Oswald Chamber’s devotional for today: 

What is my vision of God’s purpose for me? Whatever it may be, His purpose is for me to depend on Him and on His power now. If I can stay calm, faithful, and unconfused while in the middle of the turmoil of life, the goal of the purpose of God is being accomplished in me. God is not working toward a particular finish— His purpose is the process itself.

Thank you, Pastor Dion, for your faithful delivering of God’s word for us. This is a tremendous encouragement—not only for issues in my life—but as I see the suffering in the lives of those I love. God is holding and leading us all one by one! Praise Him!

The Word I need. Last Night I thought "It is no worth to live like this, several trials together at once". Need God's love, strength, God's power, God''s strategies, God's guide, God's wisdom: for TODAY AND EVER.
