    Flow Through Me from Refreshing Hope Ministries on Vimeo. Today I want to talk about something that is at the very core of knowing Jesus: the Holy Spirit. This is fundamental stuff, but sometimes we build our doctrines so high that we can no longer see the foundation, yet it is very important tha...

    But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; Isaiah 64:6 KJVAs the preacher looked over the congregation, pondering his next victim, I sank lower and lower in my chair. He always chose someone at random from the congregation to pray, so everyone tried to avoid ...

    Walking by the sea of Galilee, he saw two brothers: Simon, who is called Peter, and Andrew, his brother, casting a net into the sea; for they were fishermen. He said to them, 'Come after me, and I will make you fishers for men.' They immediately left their nets and followed him. Matthew 4:18 WEBAs J...

A Christmas Story

  • Give, and it will be given to you. Good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over, will be put into your lap. For with the measure you use it will be measured back to you. Luke 6:38 ESV

    As Christmas approached, we felt like doing something special. Looking back, I am sure that it was the Holy Spirit prompting us because He wanted to bless us, and needed a reason. We needed to be givers for what was soon coming.

    We owned a small computer business and it was really slow that year. We had a lot of spare parts and time, but very little money. So we came up with this idea that we would take all the spare parts that we could muster and build them into working computers. We then planned to find some widows without one and bless them. So we did just that.

    We made a few people happy and everyone had a great Christmas. Then in January a client contacted us and gave us over $10,000 of new computer equipment. We got things that we would not have dreamed of buying. If you get the urge to bless someone, go with it. It is probably the Holy Spirit prompting you so He can in return bless you with something.

    God could bless you anyway, but He did say give and it will be given to you. I didn't write it, I read it. The reverse could read: 'Don't give and it will not be given to you.' Sowing and reaping works just as surely as farmers plant and then harvest. If you don't plant something, the only things that reliably come up are the weeds.

    Prayer: Father, show me the opportunities in my life to plant a seed. Guide me and give me wisdom in my giving, in the name of Jesus.

    Note: Ladies, today is Thankful Thursday at the "Ladies in Distress" group (our RHM women's group)!
