    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...

Promotion Comes From the Lord

  • For promotion cometh neither from the east, nor from the west, nor from the south. But God is the judge: he putteth down one, and setteth up another. Psalm 75:6 KJV

    During a time of revival in my own life, I fasted and prayed hard that the Lord would remove anything that was keeping me from being closer to Him. Within two weeks of praying this, I was laid off from my cushy foreman job and found myself on unemployment. When it looked like I could no longer pay the bills, I managed to get a job in a factory running a machine and sweeping the floor.

    My salary went from $17 per hour to $6 and I came home black as smut every day. The boss never promoted anyone, and if you started in that position, you pretty much died there. Several people, including him, did not like me because I was 'different'. They partied all the time, came in with hangovers and then had to listen to the Bible all day from my cd player.

    I did nothing special, but just tried to pray a lot, work hard and then it all happened so quickly. In three months, the foreman quit and I was promoted to his position with a raise. In six months the manager was fired and I was promoted to his position with another raise. The Bible played over the intercom all day.

    Can you be promoted right where you are even if your boss hates you? Absolutely, the Lord may give you their job. Nothing on earth can hold you back from what God has for you, except you.

    Prayer: Father, put me where you want me to be. Give me the promotions that you want me to have as I submit my will to You, in the name of Jesus.

    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

Amen. I agree with you pastor Dion. Right now I'm just praying that Father Yahweh would heal this hip pain thats slowing me down this morning so I can work the long day I'm facing or that He would bless me with an open door for a new, less wear and tear on my body job that also pays more. I still need God to bless my sons, Brandon and Bradley with open doors for gainful employment. Amen
