    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 ...

The East And The West

  • He has not dealt with us according to our sins, nor repaid us for our iniquities. For as the heavens are high above the earth, so great is his loving kindness toward those who fear him. As far as the east is from the west, so far has he removed our transgressions from us. Psalms 103:10 WEB

    During our last road trip out west, we drove from Myrtle Beach, South Carolina to Long Beach, California. We traveled just over 2,800 miles on Interstate 40 and drove completely across the United States, from the east coast to the west coast. It was a fun trip and we got to see the heart of the country. I also fell in love with Texas with its warm, friendly people, high speed limits, and the best steak that I have ever eaten.

    When we finally arrived in California, we could only see South Carolina in our memories. I was a long way from home and I thought of this verse, 'As far as the east is from the west.' Though we had only driven across the United States, I could see that the east is certainly a long, long, ways from the west.

    When you repent, your sins are not just forgiven, they are removed from you. They are placed not just across the room, but as far as the east is from the west. Your stains are gone, your old chains are gone, and you have been set free from them. The only way that you can see those past mistakes is by looking back into your old memories. If you mention them again, God would not know what you are talking about for His forgiveness is complete. So leave the past in the past, and live your future in the freedom of Jesus Christ.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father I thank You for Your forgiveness. You are so good to me and I appreciate it. Please send Your Comforter to me today Lord, fill me with a fresh fire, speak to me and through me in the name of Jesus Christ I pray.

Amen! I challenge anyone to make something happen exactly the way it did yesterday. It will not happen, the same is with God, once the water is over the dam you can not get it back. Thank You Lord!

Amen, brother! We have also been impressed with how long it can take to get across the wider parts of Texas! I think on that trip, we just crossed the little part through Amarillo :D.
