    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...

He Understands

  • Have you not known? Have you not heard? The LORD is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He does not faint or grow weary; His understanding is unsearchable. Isaiah 40:28 ESV

    Tired and in a bad mood, we arrived home. We had worked at the church all day once again, and a new tax bill came while we were gone. We now owed five hundred dollars for additional taxes. Angrily I said, "If we had spent the time working in our business that we spent working at the church over the last month, we would have the money to pay this."

    When we went to church that Sunday, one of the elders handed me an envelope and said that the church felt that they should pay us something for all the work that we had been doing recently. I knew before I opened it what was inside, it was a check for five hundred dollars. Without us mentioning the tax bill, God had told them the amount to give us and when we needed it.

    God understands. He knows what you are going through. The temper tantrums that we throw don't even matter. He knows what you feel inside and why you act the way that you do. Don't give up when you stumble, get up.

    Prayer: Father, I trust that You will take care of me. You know my needs before I ask and I know that you are a rewarder of those that seek You. Please be with me this day and work Your perfect will in my life, in the name of Jesus.

    Note: Our weekly RHM Live church service will be happening this morning at 10am EST. Join us for a time of worship, interactive prayer, and fellowship, as well as an encouraging message. 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

Amen! God please help us to understand why things are the way they are. According to Hebrews 11:6; We have to believe you are there before you can reward us by Who You Are.

Words of comfort and encouragement, thank you so much Pastor Dion!!!  And also, thank you for today's message from the Lord!!! It made me think of the 23rd Psalm, that I'm just a little lamb and the Lord lifts me up and holds me near to His heart, and I feel so close to Him! Thanks be to the Lord for your ministry, what a blessing you are to me and so many of us!!! I'm so thankful for your labor of love, your's and Sylvia's, and all the many toils and hours behind the scene! May you be showered with blessings!!!
