    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...

    But as for me, I know that my Redeemer lives. In the end, he will stand upon the earth. After my skin is destroyed, then I will see God in my flesh, whom I, even I, will see on my side. My eyes will see, and not as a stranger. Job 19:25 WEBJob is the oldest book in the Bible, except for the first te...

The Cruise Ship

  • Most assuredly I tell you, whatever you may ask of the Father in my name, he will give it to you. Until now, you have asked nothing in my name. Ask, and you will receive, that your joy may be made full. John 16:23'24 WEB

    I once heard a story about a man that was given a ticket on a luxury cruise liner. He had very little money, so he stayed in his room and made sandwiches to eat. He admired all the beautiful banquets and decor, but he did not go to them because he thought they were too expensive.

    When the cruise was over and he was leaving the ship, he met the captain, who then asked why he never once came down to dinner. The man told him that he could not afford it, but that he had still enjoyed the cruise. Then the captain told him that it was all included in the ticket that he had been given.

    Sometimes we go through life with our head down, sick, and barely getting by, when Jesus has already paid for our ticket. We have to claim what He has provided for us! If you are sick, pray to be healed. Have the elders anoint you with oil and pray for you. If you are broke, pray for finances, speak to your pastor (if you don't have a pastor, you should get one! ) If you are lost in life, pray for the Holy Spirit to come guide you, and He will.

    Sometimes we have not, because we ask not (James 4:2). Do not let today be that day. Give God no rest until it is resolved or He answers you. Be like the widow in Luke 18:5. Then if it does not happen, it will not be because you didn't ask Him. Do not ignore what Jesus already paid for.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father I pray that you bring healing to my house. By the stripes that Jesus took for me, I declare that me and my family are healed and will walk in health. Please bring Your power into my life today Lord and let us taste heaven while on the earth. In the name of Jesus Christ I pray.

    Note: "And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord's people" (Ephesians 6:18). 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

Maria Mesia
Maria Mesia I am a widow, senior citizen, alone, my only son don't answer my calls, he uses drugs & alcohol; my finances are very low, on foreclosure, no lawyer, needing help to prepare a bankruptcy to stop foreclosure, neding house debt to be paid in full (almost 30 years paying) . My car needs repair. I need a miracle for a total change. I want to have a totally new life, or, go out of this world.

Lord, my workplace is closing and as of 3/8 I will be out of a job. Please help me find the job you want for me, one that is fullfilling and will pay enough for me to get a place to live on my own with my animal family. I need Your help Lord, I can't do this one my own. In Jesus' Name, Amen.

Thank you for this devotion and word today. This is so true, Jesus has already paid the price for us to come freely to the Father. God will give us all thingss if we only ask Him in the name of Jesus Christ, His only son. All too many times we go without because we don't know how to get something or how to deal with a situation. Our Father in heaven loves us more than we can every imagine and He wants to give us all things. We need to pray without ceasing and ask God for His will in our life. We need to ask Him for help, for finances, for advice in making decisions. If we need a job we need to ask Him to show us what we need to do to get a job. He has a specific job in mind for us and He will gladly show us if we only ask. All praise to God our Father and Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior!!!
