    For Such a Time As This from Refreshing Hope Ministries on Vimeo. Today I want to talk about God’s timing. Too many of us read the Scriptures and feel that God is dated, or out of touch with modern times, when nothing could be further from the truth. He invented time. He created the Sun tha...

    Then the king was exceedingly glad, and commanded that Daniel be taken up out of the den. So Daniel was taken up out of the den, and no kind of harm was found on him, because he had trusted in his God.

Heads or Tails

  • For we were saved in hope, but hope that is seen is not hope. For who hopes for that which he sees? But if we hope for that which we don't see, we wait for it with patience. Romans 8:24 WEB

    'Oh I don't want to face tomorrow. I have a bad, bad, feeling about this.' On and on we go into a spiral of self pity and hopelessness. Fear, anxiety, and depression begin to snowball and soon consume us. Eventually there is a complete lack of hope, and only bleak darkness is left.

    Hope can be defined as expectation, trust, and confidence. Knowing that something good is coming your way. Fear can be defined as anxious, apprehensive, alarmed, or dread. Knowing that something bad is coming your way.

    They are polar opposites, and you cannot live in one realm, while walking in the other. A strange thing is that neither of these are seen. Like the wind, both are invisible, and it really takes just as much faith and energy to believe one, as the other. The difference is that one builds you up, and the other brings you down.

    Do not waste your energy on fear, channel it into hope. Instead of speaking about the bad thing that might happen, talk about the good that you would like to see happen. Then act accordingly and wait patiently for it to come to pass. God does hear our prayers. He is not deaf. We just have to learn to grow up a little and to trust Him along the way. He has got this, and when it is over and you are looking back, you will feel silly to have doubted Him. I always do.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father I thank You for today and I am looking forward in hope for what You are doing in my life. I know that You will see me through whatever I face, and I look to You for my needs. My help comes from the Lord. I choose to trust in You today, in the name of Jesus Christ I pray.

    Note: For those following our Creation Photographers group, here is the theme of the week: Philippians 4:8 "Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable'if anything is excellent or praiseworthy'think about such things." Our fun theme next week will be 'All Things Praiseworthy' What makes you stand up and shout praises to God? Our themes are always open for creative interpretation and you are encouraged to post anything else inspiring as well! My photos (in the group) this week reflect quality time with the family and those sweet, sweet heart blessings I always see, reminding me God is always near and dear to those who seek him. Thank you for being part of our group, and God bless! Here is the link: Creation Photographers
