    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...

Important Things

  • Don't seek what you will eat or what you will drink; neither be anxious. For the nations of the world seek after all of these things, but your Father knows that you need these things. But seek God's Kingdom, and all these things will be added to you. Luke 12:29 WEB

    The most important things in your life, aren't things at all. When your primary focus is stuff, you will always come up empty. Solomon called it 'Chasing the wind.' When you get something new, it will feel good for a little while, but soon you will be empty again.

    When your focus is on a relationship with the Lord Jesus, He will provide these 'other' things as well, though they should never be your goal. Put God first in your life, and you will also have the things that you desire. The Bible clearly teaches us that all the way through:

    'Also delight yourself in Yahweh, And he will give you the desires of your heart' (Psalms 37:4).

    'Blessed is the man who doesn't walk in the counsel of the wicked, Nor stand in the way of sinners, Nor sit in the seat of scoffers; But his delight is in Yahweh's law; On his law he meditates day and night. He will be like a tree planted by the streams of water, That brings forth its fruit in its season, Whose leaf also does not wither. Whatever he does shall prosper' (Psalms 1:1'3).

    'I have been young, and now am old, Yet I have not seen the righteous forsaken, Nor his children begging for bread. All day long he deals graciously, and lends. His seed is blessed' (Psalms 37:25'26).

    'He set himself to seek God in the days of Zechariah, who had understanding in the vision of God: and as long as he sought Yahweh, God made him to prosper' (2 Chronicles 26:5).

    'Without faith it is impossible to be well pleasing to him, for he who comes to God must believe that he exists, and that he is a rewarder of those who seek him' (Hebrews 11:6).

    Jesus commands us to not worry, it was not a suggestion. Then He gives us simple instructions: 'Seek God first and all these things will be taken care of.' Let us intentionally seek God today and make Him a part of our lives.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father I pray that You draw my heart to You. Give me a fresh desire to seek Your face. Build my faith and help me walk trustingly with You, in the name of Jesus Christ I pray.

    Note: "if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land." (2 Chron 7:14). 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

The more I pray for the Lord to be every part of my life, the nicer my life is, the better things go.  He is in control and handling everything.  I have tried ernestly to turn everything over to Him and trust Him.  I am being thankful for everything because without Him there would be nothing.  Thank you Father for loving me and sending your Son to save me.  Be with me every step of the way.  In Jesus name, amen.  Thank you Pastor Dion for another wonderful devotional.

The more we worry the bigger our problems will become and the less God seems to us. I can picture we are like this little child who looks up and sees this mountain of worry getting bigger and bigger and so scare for his life. But, if he cries out to his father who is nearby and has the mean or power to remove the mountain, then all he will see is his father standing in front of him and nothing else in between. Then, the father will say, "come here son, there is nothing to worry about".

Amen and Amen! Thank you Pastor Dion! You put a song into my heart today, a song with a very special meaning that my daughter and I would often sing, ever since she was just a little girl, while I was driving: "Seek ye first the kingom of God, and His righteousness, and all those things shall be added unto you ...", and it made us so happy! Now, I'm no longer able to drive due to my poor eye-sight, and she is the one now driving me every where, including to the elderly and disabled to take care of  them and other appointments, etc., but I still have that song in my heart!!! Because, the Lord is my strength and shield, and I'll seek Him and trust Him until the day that He calls me home!!!
