    Joseph dreamed a dream, and he told it to his brothers, and they hated him all the more. He said to them, 'Please hear this dream which I have dreamed: for, behold, we were binding sheaves in the field, and behold, my sheaf arose and also stood upright; and behold, your sheaves came around, and bowe...

    He took a towel, and wrapped a towel around his waist. Then he poured water into the basin, and began to wash the disciples' feet, and to wipe them with the towel that was wrapped around him. Then he came to Simon Peter. He said to him, 'Lord, do you wash my feet?' Jesus answered him, 'You don't kno...

More Than Enough

  • Yahweh said to Gideon, By the three hundred men who lapped will I save you, and deliver the Midianites into your hand; and let all the people go every man to his place. So the people took food in their hand, and their trumpets; and he sent all the men of Israel every man to his tent, but retained the three hundred men: and the camp of Midian was beneath him in the valley. Judges 7:7 WEB

    Facing an army that could not even be counted, Gideon and his men walked down to the water. He had started this mission with 32,000 men which was already too small a number. God then told Gideon to send all the men that were fearful back home, and over two-thirds (22,000) of the army left (Judges 7:3).

    Now there were only 10,000 men left with him and to make matters worse, God said that was still too many. So Gideon took them down to the water and there God sorted them again. When Gideon came up from the water, he had only 300 men left with him, but God said that was enough to accomplish his mission, and it was.

    Gideon had more than enough men with him, but he did not realize it. He was scared when he had 32,000 men in his army, but he was victorious with only 300. Jesus took a few fish and fed thousands of people (Matthew 15:38, Mark 6:44). Peter preached a sermon that caused 3,000 people to come to the Lord in one meeting (Acts 2:41).

    Sometimes we have more than enough right in front of us, yet we do not see it. We often learn that God has already provided what we need, we just don't know how to use it, or we let our fears cause us to not believe Him. Our limitation is always what we do not know, not what we do not have. 'My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge' (Hosea 4:6).

    Prayer: Heavenly Father please help me see the things that You have already placed in my life and teach me to use them properly. Lord I know that You know best and I submit to Your will for my life. Teach me what I need to know. Guide me into all that You have for me. I am Yours, in the name of Jesus Christ I pray.

    Note: Happy Sunday! All are invited this morning to join us for our weekly RHM Live church service! Join us for our weekly time of worship, interactive prayer, and fellowship. As a new adjustment, we will be moving the Bible Study to once per month and will be bringing shorter messages for the rest of the month. If you have time, drop in and let us know your feedback! To participate in the chatroom you need to have a site account, but if not, you can still watch the video of the study. Service starts at 10am EST, but all are encouraged to show up 15 minutes early for fellowship, and to make sure the stream is working for you before we start. Here is the link to join: RHM Live

Hey Tracy, sorry for the misunderstanding :)! There will still be a weekly service, but it will not be centered around the chapter-by-chapter Bible Study every week. Instead, we will do that once-a-month (barring other factors) and the other weeks we will bring a shorter message. That will give us more flexibility on a number of levels. We will still have service at the same time, with fellowship, worship and prayer requests :).

Praise GOD for a beautiful Sunday morning. We put limits on our GOD, and he is limitless. For me, life is a mystery each day. I take him at his word, an keep moving. He is in charge! Because when we plan things don't go according to our plan. So pray and GOD, for his plan. He shows up each and every time.

I feel better to hear you preach the Lord's word! Learning the Bible is time consuming and after the quiz I was done. That's not the way I should have looked at it. I read the devotional faithfully every day because it inspires me so I'm glad you will be going back to sermons. I personally need to hear your hope and faith in our Lord! This helps me! I Thank you RHM for all you do and I see you put your heart and soul into it. Thank you again and May God bless and protect us all! Truly Rose Sicilia

Aww, I know that Dion will truly appreciate how his post helped encourage you with your music, Julie! You know, if you ever video of your music, please feel free to post them at the "Make a Joyful Noise" group, 'cause I'd love to hear them! Also, Dion is working on a plugin at this moment to play original music, so you may be interested in that, too, when he gets done with it. I'm sure he'll post about it at the music group, too :)
