    Thank You from Refreshing Hope Ministries on Vimeo. Today I want to talk about the importance of being thankful. Jesus lived on Earth as our example, and He was so thankful and full of praise. No matter what you have been through, there are still some things that you can be thankful about. An imp...

    I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with my loving eye on you. Psalms 32:8 NIVRecently when the Lord was ready to start something new in our life, He started closing out the old. Of course we panicked, tried giving more, praying more, fasting more, serving ...

    Out of the same mouth comes blessing and cursing. My brothers, these things ought not to be so. Does a spring send out from the same opening fresh and bitter water? Can a fig tree, my brothers, yield olives, or a vine figs? Thus no spring yields both salt water and fresh water. James 3:10 WEBHot, ti...

Taking Care of Pharaoh

  • He said to Abram, 'Know for sure that your offspring will live as foreigners in a land that is not theirs, and will serve them. They will afflict them four hundred years. I will also judge that nation, whom they will serve. Afterward they will come out with great wealth; Genesis 15:13 WEB

    God told Abram that his descendants would become slaves for four hundred years in a foreign land, but that He would punish the nation that did this, and His descendants would come out with great possessions. This was completely fulfilled later in the exodus from Egypt. It was a deliberate discipline that ended with a planned outcome. God knew how it would end hundreds of years before it began.

    Once I worked at a plant where the manager was much like a slave driver. I cheerfully ran a brass polishing machine all day in the heat where I silently prayed and listened to the Bible, trying to make the best of a bad situation. For me, it was a big change from being a supervisor, and a third of the pay, but I knew God had placed me there.

    This season humbled me, stripped away unnecessary things, taught me to rely more on Him, got me back to the basics, and prepared me for His service. The plans of God have many layers. After a while the owners removed the manager and promoted me to his position.

    Pharaoh was not as in control as he thought he was. God knew exactly what He was doing, and when the time was right He brought it to pass. God knew what He was doing in my life, and He knows what He is doing in your life. We just have to keep a good attitude while we wait on pharaoh to be taken care of.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father please help me see my situation through Your eyes. I know that I am not here by accident and that You have plans for me. I submit to Your will, in the name of Jesus Christ I pray.

Our lives are not what we plan or our time. Our lives are on God's time and God's plans. Amen

Amen! This is a great reminder for us to just keep praying and wait on the Lord! He has it all planned out and He knows what He is doing! We just need to watch and wait for Him to reveal His answers to us! Thank you for this message!
