    Rejected Identity from Refreshing Hope Ministries on Vimeo. Today I want to talk about rejection, especially in your calling, your gifts, your talents, by those who are familiar with you. We can read the Bible and feel like Jesus had an automatic win button in every circumstance. Storms, disease,...

    Remember the former things of old: for I am God, and there is none else; I am God, and there is none like me; declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times things that are not yet done; saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure; Isaiah 46:9 WEBDuring a sci-fi night...

    Joseph came in to them in the morning, and saw them, and saw that they were sad. He asked Pharaoh's officers who were with him in custody in his master's house, saying, 'Why do you look so sad today?' They said to him, 'We have dreamed a dream, and there is no one who can interpret it.' Joseph said ...

While I Breathe

  • let's hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering; for he who promised is faithful. Let's consider how to provoke one another to love and good works, not forsaking our own assembling together, as the custom of some is, but exhorting one another, and so much the more as you see the Day approaching. Hebrews 10:23 WEB

    My home state of South Carolina carries this inscription on the state seal: 'Dum Spiro Spero.' In Latin, this phrase means "While I breathe, I hope.' This is a profound statement because where there is hope, there is life. When all hope is gone, it usually ends. That is a goal of Refreshing Hope Ministries, to refresh your hope each day. As long as you are still sucking air, you can make it through this.

    Hope is incredibly powerful at driving away doubt, fear, darkness, and discouragement. Despair is defined as 'the complete loss or absence of hope.' Most of us know what despair sounds like because we listen to it all day in our minds, trying to beat us down, trying to get us to give up our hope, to discourage us and get us to stop.

    Hope is like the sunlight that chases away the darkness. Hope says: "This will turn out well for me. Something good is coming my way. I will beat this, I will be healed. They will be OK. This is not the end. I can do better! God has got a plan for me and I am going to see this through. I can do this. I will overcome and my breakthrough is coming soon! This enemy is going down!"

    Do not give up your hope in the goodness of God during the dark times. It is all that you have left. God is going to do the things that He has promised you. He is completely faithful and has nothing but the best intentions for you. Even when this life is over, it is not the end. It will be the beginning of really living. The Lord is my helper; I will not fear; what can man do to me (Hebrews 13:6). While you breathe, hope.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father I choose to trust in You. I know that You are there for me and I am so thankful for all that You do. Please restore my hope and let Your Son shine through me, in the name of Jesus Christ I pray.

    Note: Our weekly RHM Live church service will be happening this morning at 10am EST. Join us for a time of worship, interactive prayer, and fellowship, and to hear what has been happening recently in our lives. To participate in the chatroom you need to have a site account, but if not, you can still watch the video of the study. Service starts at 10am EST, but all are encouraged to show up 15 minutes early for fellowship, and to make sure the stream is working for you before we start. Love you all!

Sorry I missed fellowship with all of you this morning, I over slept. Thanks pastor Dion for being in tune with Holy Spirit. As always, this was a very meaningful,uplifting and encouraging message for me right now. I was struggling with despair for a long while but, God has been teaching me, working with me through this. My hope IS in Him to get me out of the end of this rut. Praise the Lord our God our future and hope!

My Favorite Devotional is this one, Because it hits the nail on the head, When hope is gone there is nothing left, and that is why the enemy lies to us constantly to try to get us to give up. Dont listen to that wind bag lier! God will and can deliver you bless you, Prosper you!! My Hope is in Jesus. Amen!
