The peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your thoughts in Christ Jesus. Finally, brothers, whatever things are true, whatever things are ...

My Father, who has given them to Me, is greater than all, and no one is able to snatch them out of the Father's hand. John 10:27 ESVThe star ...

    When they began to sing and to praise, Yahweh set ambushers against the children of Ammon, Moab, and Mount Seir, who had come against Judah; and they were struck. For the children of Ammon and Moab stood up against the inhabitants of Mount Seir to utterly kill and destroy them. When they had finish...

Walk This Way

  • But Naaman was angry, and went away, and said, Behold, I thought, He will surely come out to me, and stand, and call on the name of Yahweh his God, and wave his hand over the place, and recover the leper. 2 Kings 5:11 WEB

    Naaman stared at his new skin with amazement when he came up out of the muddy water for the seventh time. His skin which had been covered in running sores, was now smooth as a baby and he was completely healed.

    In his mind though, he had seen this happening much differently. The man of God should have come out to him, waved his hands, and said a long prayer. Instead Elisha sent a messenger which told him to go wash in a muddy river. At first, Naaman went away angry, and remained sick. Then after thinking it over, he returned and did as Elisha's servant had instructed, and he was healed.

    I have caught myself telling God, and expecting Him, to do it my way. Then watch Him do it better His way. He is not limited to our small way of thinking, and our tiny resource pool. We often want God to be like us, to walk this way, and talk this way, but we have to remember that we serve Him, instead of Him serving us. The Almighty God is not our pet.

    Twice I have asked Him to bless us financially at RHM so that we could buy some better equipment, then had someone call and trade us thousands of dollars worth of high end equipment in exchange for our help with a project. Equipment that was better than I would have bought, but came to need later. We often think too small and within our current resources, when He is not limited by that.

    Naaman gained some humility and was healed in the process. You can ask God to help you, but don't tell Him how to do it. He has multi-layered plans that in the end, are perfect. Ask Him and then just let Him handle it as He chooses. Trust Him, you will be happy with the results.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father I thank You for all that You do for me. Help me to see through Your eyes and guide my prayers. Do it Your way Lord, for I know it is best. Fulfill Your will in my life, in the name of Jesus Christ I pray.

On time as always. I just finished praying for guidance as how to pay the taxes for a property that we inherited from my Grandmother and my siblings aren't willing to help me. I will keep praying.
