    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...

The End Of The Line

  • Why is the LORD bringing us into this land, to fall by the sword? Our wives and our little ones will become a prey. Would it not be better for us to go back to Egypt? And they said to one another, 'Let us choose a leader and go back to Egypt.' Numbers 14:2 ESV

    The Israelites were standing on the border of the land that God had promised to give them. God had done incredible signs and wonders in their lives and had just delivered them from slavery in Egypt. Now, when so close to a major breakthrough, they stubbornly refused to take the next step. They wanted to kill Moses, appoint a new leader and return to Egypt. They would do anything except what God asked them to do, and they had now reached the end of the line. They would go no further.

    I have seen many people get stalled in life because they could not take that next step. While standing on the border of their own promised land, they were too terrified or stubborn to do what God asked, and they just sat there. Some of us should have left that place fifteen years ago, but we could not let it go. There are pastors in churches that should have left years ago, but they they still sit there fossilized. God will not make you obey. He will let you die off and use your children when you refuse to take the next step.

    You can break the cycle. Choose to obey the Lord's prompting, it is for your own good. Though it looks short term scary, it will be long term beneficial. Pray hard and take the risk. If you feel that you have been left behind and are no longer where you should be, repent, get up and take the next step. God will restore you and put you back on track.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father, give me the grace to follow you wherever you call me. Help me to face any obstacle and stay in step with You. Let me be the one that enters the land and does not retreat, 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

Change IS scary! But as mentioned, in the long run, when God prompts us and we heed to His call, we will find our "promised land!"
