    Joseph came in to them in the morning, and saw them, and saw that they were sad. He asked Pharaoh's officers who were with him in custody in his master's house, saying, 'Why do you look so sad today?' They said to him, 'We have dreamed a dream, and there is no one who can interpret it.' Joseph said ...

    Then Jesus told His disciples, If anyone would come after Me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow Me. For whoever would save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake will find it. Matthew 16:24 ESVI stood at a crossroad in my life and wondered which path to tak...

    Make an ark of gopher wood. You shall make rooms in the ark, and shall seal it inside and outside with pitch. This is how you shall make it. The length of the ark will be three hundred cubits, the breadth of it fifty cubits, and the height of it thirty cubits. Genesis 6:14 WEBNoah had a driving pass...

The Lord Listens

  • Yahweh spoke to Moses and to Aaron, saying, 'How long shall I bear with this evil congregation that complain against me? I have heard the complaints of the children of Israel, which they complain against me. Tell them, 'As I live, says Yahweh, surely as you have spoken in my ears, so I will do to you. Num. 14:26 WEB

    Several times in my walk with the Lord, I have seen the idle things that I have spoken come to pass in my life. Sometimes very quickly, with either good or bad consequences, depending on the words that I spoke. This is an Old Testament scripture, but I can assure you that it is still valid today. The Lord, and others, listen to our conversation. Be careful of the words that you say, because someone may be listening.

    Once the church that we attended preached on giving so much that I began to feel nauseous. We tithed on all the money that came into our house and gave above that, but one morning they took five separate offerings. We decided after that time that when an offering was taken, we would decide an amount to give immediately, and the longer they talked about it, the less that amount would be. At the ten minute mark, our gift would reach zero.

    About that time we sold a piece of property and had a large tithe from the sale of it. We were praying about where to give it. Finally we decided to just give it to our church, but I told Sylvia that morning: 'If they preach on giving again this week, we will give it somewhere else.'

    We went to church that Sunday and the sermon was on healing, so I began to write out a tithe check for the property. Halfway through his sermon on healing, the speaker suddenly paused, turned around, looked right at us, pulled out his wallet and said: 'Sometimes you have to give it all.' Then he went into a heated twenty minute sermon on giving. I almost fell out of my chair laughing while tearing up their check.

    God listens to our conversation and He rescued us from a mistake. That day He had someone else in mind for our gift, and it soon became apparent to us. We blessed some other ministries and people instead.

    Let the words that you speak today be positive, encouraging, uplifting and not doom and gloom. Involve the Lord in your decisions, especially financial ones. Like a small rudder steers a ship, your tongue guides your life (James 3:4). Prophesy your bright future so that it will come to pass and do not speak curses over yourself and your family. He listens to the words you speak.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father, thank you for the wonderful life that you have given me. I know that the plans that you have for me are good! With your help, today is going to be fun, simple, and easy. I am the one that You chose for this and with Your help I am going to be the best yet! In the name of Jesus Christ I pray.

    Note: For those following our Creation Photographers group, here is the theme of the week: 1 Corinthians 1:27 "But God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong." 'April Fools' will be our next fun theme and is wide open for some creative interpretation! Let's get fun and silly with this one, and don't forget to post anything else inspiring as well! My photos (in the group) this week reflect some silly fun while birding. Have a fantastic week and be the fool for Christ so that, in our weakness, we can shine bright in God's strength!

I have tried faithfully to tithe on my income, however, we do not tithe on my husbands which is considerable to mine now that my retirement income has diminished.  God has been very good to us and my husband is aware of this. He just feels tithing can be other then just money.  He has a good heart and helps others all the time.  He gives personally.  I have to agree with him as we have seen how money that should have been to help those in need was not.  Let each person have a conversation with our Lord about giving and He will let you know what to do.  Thank you pastor for a good devotional.  Have a blessed day.

Thank You Pastor Dion for this inspiring Devotional. I also listened to the Devotional reading on Anxiety and I learned that even though I would go to work and be so tired from sitting and not having a lot of clients in the salon and all of the other stylist would be busy all day with clients. I have been there one year and I'm still building a clientele and I usually take walk in clients. I prayed to God and I said God I am doing these hair styles for you. I went back to work and there was this spirit of peace around me and I had patience to wait on clients. Two clients called 5 minutes apart and with those two clients I made my sales goal for that day. I was happy and grateful. The video that I watched on Anxiety helped a lot and the prayer that Pastor Dion said in the video helped me to understand that even though it is not the best job that I may want. It is the position that God has given me and it is best to humble my self and To give God thanks.
