    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...

    The man said, 'They have left here, for I heard them say, 'Let's go to Dothan.' ' Joseph went after his brothers, and found them in Dothan. They saw him afar off, and before he came near to them, they conspired against him to kill him. They said to one another, 'Behold, this dreamer comes. Come now ...

The Haunting

  • The next day, he saw Jesus coming to him, and said, 'Behold, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world!' John 1:29 WEB

    Do you ever feel guilt or shame over something in your past? Is there something haunting you and saying: 'God is mad at you because'' or 'You are not worthy to do this?' That is the enemy trying to immobilize you and to keep you from doing God's will. That is what he does, he accuses us day and night and reminds us of our past (Revelation 12:10).

    The enemy cannot stop God from fulfilling His plans for you, but through fear and shame, he can certainly stop you from stepping out in faith to begin with. If you never begin the journey, how can you arrive at the destination? It is a simple but very effective plan, and it kept eleven of Jesus' disciples in the boat, while Peter walked on the water (Matthew 14:29).

    Your past is behind you and you cannot change it, so focus on moving forward. When you fall, get back up as quickly as you can and try again. When a past mistake comes to mind, ask God for forgiveness and put it behind you. When someone that has hurt you comes to mind, forgive them once again. This will take away the enemies ammunition, and it will be one more thing that he can no longer use against you.

    Jesus dealt with the sin problem once and for all, and no sacrifice that you make will improve on what He has already done for you. He took away the sin of the world. Today we only have to ask for God to forgive us, and He will. Today is the day of salvation, so do not waste another second of your life. Your sin was already paid for, along with everyone else's! We try to live right because He loves us, not to make Him love us. God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father I look to You today for help, for provision, for protection. All that I have came from You, even the air that I breathe. Forgive me of my sins and help me to walk steadfast. Let me carry Your presence with me today, 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

Heavenly Father show Mari your divine presence in her life. Open her eyes to show her just how much you are already there in her life. Remove all doubt in her mind and give her the everlasting peace of mind that can only come from your love. Whatever is holding her back I pray that it be released and she can feel your almighty presence and be comforted by your healing love and light. Amen

 

Mari I don't know what you are dealing with but I prayed to God to remove that from your life  I am a living testimony of God's grace and mercy  I have been through the fire too many times and was a slave to man and worldly things.  God has done incredible things in my life and he can do the same for you. Keep praying and keep the faith and your day of deliverance is in reach. God bless you always

Dear heavenly Father I pray that you remove anything or anybody from Patty's life that is holding her prisoner in darkness and deliver her into the light of your incredible grace and love. Remove any doubt or fear in her mind that is holding her back from receiving your love and forgiveness. God you know all our needs and you know our hearts.  Place your hands and protection over Patty and let no evil person or thought into her mind  Amen

 

Patty if God can remove what he did in my life I know without a shadow of doubt that he can do the same for you.  God bless you now and always

Jose keep your head up and keep pressing forward.  Everyone sins and has fallen but by the grace of God he forgives us all. Never give up hope. I am a living testimony of Gods unfailing love for I am a sinner and if he can forgive my past sins he can forgive your sins as well. God bless you and keep your eyes focused on the prize of the promise of eternal life with God our Creator.

Amen I thank you God for sending your son Jesus who paid dearly on the cross to take away the sins of the world. I like many others have great sins in my past and like many I still sin at times.  Through the blood of Jesus I am forgiven when I pray to God. It has taken a long time for me to realize just how much my heavenly Father loves me and how forgiving he really is.  I used to dwell on my past sins on a daily basis but I am growing so much in faith and I have accepted the fact that my sins have been washed away.  It can be extremely difficult to leave the past where it belongs.  God I praise you for your love and compassion for me and I know that I am forgiven and I am your child and you hold a place for me and all of your faithful servants who trust and obey your commands. God you have been so good to me and I am so proud to call you my Father.
