    Good Neighbors from Refreshing Hope Ministries on Vimeo. Today I want to talk about the importance of being a good neighbor. Ever since Adam and Eve had kids and one killed the other, it has been an ongoing thing, learning to live with one another. Most of the ten commandments are about how we tr...

    When I kept silence, my bones wasted away through my groaning all day long. For day and night your hand was heavy on me. My strength was sapped in the heat of summer. Selah. I acknowledged my sin to you. I didn't hide my iniquity. I said, I will confess my transgressions to Yahweh, and you forgave t...
  • The man said, 'They have left here, for I heard them say, 'Let's go to Dothan.' ' Joseph went after his brothers, and found them in Dothan. They saw him afar off, and before he came near to them, they conspired against him to kill him. They said to one another, 'Behold, this dreamer comes. Come now ...

Through the Fire

  • Then Nebuchadnezzar the king was astonished, and rose up in haste. He spoke and said to his counselors, 'Didn't we cast three men bound into the middle of the fire?' They answered the king, 'True, O king.' He answered, 'Look, I see four men loose, walking in the middle of the fire, and they are unharmed. The appearance of the fourth is like a son of the gods. Daniel 3:24 WEB

    Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, were tied up and thrown into a furnace that had been heated seven times hotter than normal, just for them. The furnace was so hot that it killed the guards that were throwing them in and they all fell into the blazing furnace together.

    They were probably not thinking: 'What a blessing this is to have befallen us today' while on the way down into the flames. Nevertheless, they were not alone in the furnace for the Lord Jesus met them in the fire.

    When they came out of the furnace, they did not even smell like smoke and their clothes were not burned. Only the ropes that bound them were burned off and they were now walking 'unbound and free.' What once had a grip on them and held them tightly, was now burned away.

    Sometimes the Lord will use the fire to set you free. The things that used to hold you back will quickly burn away in the furnace of affliction. The baggage that we cling to will burn away and we get a new perspective on what is really important, and when you come out the other side you will be 'Unbound.'

    Prayer: Heavenly Father I trust You for You know what it takes. Please send me the Comforter like you promised, meet me in the furnace, and set me free from the things that hold me back, in the name of Jesus Christ I pray.

Dear Father I need Your help, to take away all the things that are holding me back. Show me what I need to do to be unbound of this heavy load. In Jesus name I pray Amen. Praise the Lord for His love and care.
