  • Good From Bad (Your Worst Day Can Become Your Best) from Refreshing Hope Ministries on Vimeo. Today I want to talk about how God can bring good things out of the bad. How He can change your worst day, into your best. How He can change bad situations, into incredible opportunities. He has done it ...
  • Now after these things, the Lord also appointed seventy others, and sent them two by two ahead of him into every city and place where he was about to come. Then he said to them, 'The harvest is indeed plentiful, but the laborers are few. Pray therefore to the Lord of the harvest, that he may send ou...

    Let no man say when he is tempted, 'I am tempted by God,' for God can't be tempted by evil, and he himself tempts no one. But each one is tempted, when he is drawn away by his own lust, and enticed. Then the lust, when it has conceived, bears sin; and the sin, when it is full grown, brings forth dea...

Never Too Late

  • He said to Jesus, 'Lord, remember me when you come into your kingdom.' Jesus said to him, 'Assuredly I tell you, today you will be with me in Paradise.' Luke 23:42 WEB

    Two thieves were crucified along with Jesus, one on each side of Him. As they hung there, struggling to breath and slowly dying, one of the thieves mocked Him saying: 'If You are the Christ, save yourself and us!' The other, after living a life of crime and with only minutes left, humbly asked Jesus to remember him. Jesus did not have to 'pray' about it, but immediately told him: 'Today you will be with Me in paradise.'

    Many times life slips by so very quickly and we mean to make things right, but then time marches on. Eventually, we become caught in a trap, and we begin to feel that it is too late for us. We think that there has just been too much water under the bridge, too many wrongs to be made right, but every Saint has a past and every sinner has a future.

    Could God really forgive us for a lifetime of sin, mistakes, and unbelief? Would God really give us a fresh start after all that we have done, even if we had only moments left in our life? Yes, absolutely! Isaiah told us: 'Come now, and let us reason together,' says Yahweh: 'Though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow. Though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool' (Isaiah 1:18).

    Jesus will completely wash you as white as snow with His own blood that He shed for you. If you just humbly ask, even if you had only minutes left, and have lived a life full of wickedness, He will still forgive you. All of heaven rejoices when someone who is lost turns to God (Luke 15:7).

    Prayer: Heavenly Father I turn to You today. Please guide me into all that You have for me. Forgive me of my sins, draw my heart to You, and lead me into an overcoming life on this earth, in the name of Jesus Christ I pray.

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

I love Luke 23:42. It goes against everything I was taught growing up to make sure I knew God was going to hold every wrong against me. Praise God for Pastor Dion and Sylvia’s teachings.
