    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...

    Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow. They don't toil, neither do they spin, yet I tell you that even Solomon in all his glory was not dressed like one of these. But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today exists, and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, won't he much more clot...

This Thing is From Me

  • Yahweh says, 'You shall not go up, nor fight against your brothers! Every man return to his house; for this thing is of me.' So they listened to Yahweh's words, and returned from going against Jeroboam. 2 Chronicles 11:4 WEB

    When Solomon the son of King David passed away, his son Rehoboam became the king of Israel. Then a servant of Solomon named Jeroboam led a rebellion that divided the kingdom of Israel into two parts. The southern kingdom, or kingdom of Judah, was made from the tribes of Judah and Benjamin, and they stayed loyal to the family line of David. The other ten tribes became known as the northern kingdom of Israel, or the kingdom of Samaria.

    When Rehoboam, the son of Solomon, gathered his army together and planned to reunite the kingdom, the Lord spoke through a prophet named Shemaiah and told them to go home for 'This thing is from Me.' This had to appear like the worst possible thing that could have happened, but it was all a part of God's plan and He had prophesied it earlier through Ahijah in 1 Kings 11:29. It was no accident that the rebellion split the nation. It came straight from the Lord.

    Once I was a supervisor at what was a high paying job at the time. I worked really hard and was the model employee, but when I began fasting and praying to get closer to the Lord, suddenly I was called to the office and laid off. The guy that they put in my place was illiterate and could not even fill out the reports properly.

    I was confused, I felt wronged and hurt, but after praying about it a while, I knew: 'This thing is from Me.' I walked through a rough patch, led some people to the Lord along the way, and then He put me in my own computer business. In the end it was far better, but God had to remove something first, along with some of my pride. It was not pretty, but it was from Him.

    Though it is hard to understand why bad things happen to good people, you have to remember that God loves you, and that He is in control of your life. So do not panic when bad things happen. Even satan had to get permission from God before he could attack Job (Job 1:10). If you are trying to be obedient to the Lord, nothing will come on you that He does not allow, and in the end it will work out for good. Don't give up when your promotion goes the other way like mine did for there is something better coming around the corner.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father I thank You for the times that I don't get my way, for You are smarter than me. I want what You have. Please share Your vision with me and let Your desires, become my desires. In the name of Jesus Christ I pray.

    Note: "if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land." (2 Chron 7:14). If you have a prayer need, we are here for you! We and the prayer team are ready to lift you up at our private prayer page: RHM Prayer Network

Heavenly Father I thank you for everything that you allowed to come to me that I didn't understand and could not prevent. I thank you for your grace and mercy that you have given to endure to the end. You are a loving Father and knows what is best for your children and so on behalf of us all I just want to say a great big thank you for the processes that we went through that has caused you to transplant us in this season. In Jesus name I pray. Amen

Amen! Im still waiting on God, I was a machinist for 30 years made really good money, But I did not like what I was doing for a living, the hours were always 50 to 60 hours a week sometimes more, or worse having to work night shift, it cost me marriages, and I became pretty bitter about it. Then finally one day after being laid off, I have not been able to return to machining, It has been both Blessing and Curse, God has promised me much much better and to repay what the enemy has stolen. Waiting is the hardest part. I dont always know what or why, What God is doing, sometimes I get so frustrated, But I trust God, He doesnt lie, The othe guy however does nothing but lie. I have to remember who tries to fill my head with those lies. God is faithful and God Is Good. Trust his timing, and that my friends is not always very easy, but it is always for the best. Amen

Oh Heavenly Father, I know that at times I am very stubborn and thoughts come to my mind thinking I am out there by myself. I know that You are there for me but I must wait for Your designs to receive Your blessings, thank You Lord I will wait. In Jesus name I pray, Amen. 

Thank you Pastor for this great testimony, God bless you and this ministry.
