    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 Star Lord

  • God made the two great lights: the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night. He also made the stars. Genesis 1:16 WEB

    He also made the stars. What a sentence. I read this verse sometimes and I am amazed by how much the Bible packs into a single verse. Scientists estimate that there are around 300 sextillion stars now, and that number grows larger as they develop devices that let them see further into space.

    That is a 3 followed by 23 zeros, or 3 trillion times 100 billion. My mind cannot even fathom numbers like this, and yet mankind cannot create a single star. Written out it in long hand it looks like this: 300,000,000,000,000,000,000,000.

    There are multiple planets in orbit around these stars, and multiple moons in orbit around those planets. When compared with the universe, the planet Earth that we live on is like a speck of pollen. We are only a speck living on that speck, but yet fighting and dividing over anything that we can think of. From above, it would be much like watching ant colonies milling about, so busy at work, till a boot comes down. We really need to keep our life in the proper perspective and see the big picture.

    The Awesome God Almighty that made the stars calls us by name and knows how many hairs are on our head. He created all of this, and yet He will be involved in your life today if you let Him. Though He created the universe, He has given me answers to questions on a math test when I asked Him, simply because He cares.

    Today if you feel worthless, put it aside. The Creator Himself has deemed you worthy to call Him Father, and no one else's opinion really matters. Can the ones looking down their nose at you make stars? I am thrilled to know the Star Lord, and that He knows me.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father I thank You for creating me and for giving me a place in Your universe. Please help me find the place that I belong and put me right where You want me to be. Guide me and help me make the right decisions as I live my life for You, in the name of Jesus Christ I pray.

Thank you so much for this Pastor! I really needed this, as I've been feeling very lonely and lost, and haven't found anywhere I really fit in for years now. Praise God and bless you for this word today.

Thank you for this message. We are so tiny and insignificant on this planet but God loves us so much, He made us and desires to have a personal relationship with us. To our heavenly Father we are not insignificant, we are loved and very special to Him. He even cares about us enough to know how many hairs are on own heads. More importantly He knows our name, He knows everything about us and still He loves us. We are so blessed to be loved by God Almighty.
