    In times past, when Saul was king over us, it was you who led Israel out and in. Yahweh said to you, You shall be shepherd of my people Israel, and you shall be prince over Israel. So all the elders of Israel came to the king to Hebron; and king David made a covenant with them in Hebron before Yahwe...

    Inspiration from Refreshing Hope Ministries on Vimeo. Today I want to talk about inspiration, when a creative idea suddenly downloads into your brain. That is not an accident. It happens for a purpose, and it may be more important than we think. Let’s begin in Jeremiah chapter 1 verse 4: T...

    Yahweh's angel found her by a fountain of water in the wilderness, by the fountain on the way to Shur. He said, 'Hagar, Sarai's servant, where did you come from? Where are you going?' She said, 'I am fleeing from the face of my mistress Sarai.' Genesis 16:7 WEBHagar wandered alone in the desert. She...

Wasting Away

  • 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 the iniquity of my sin. Selah Psalms 32:3 WEB

    David wrote Psalm 32 after his affair and marriage to Bathsheba. He had gotten a married woman pregnant, then had her husband Uriah killed, though he was named as one of David's mighty men (1 Chronicles 11:41). His sin gave him no rest, but kept eating away at him day and night. David became restless, and wasting away. His peace was gone. The sweet fellowship that he once had with the Lord, had now been broken because of his sin.

    Sin is a slippery slope and will eventually catch up with you. One sin leads to another, and another, like lie upon lie, and it gets easier each time. You cannot have peace with God when your conscience is constantly eating away at you. Repentance is the brake pedal that stops it.

    If you ever find yourself wasting away, remember this fact: No matter what you have done in this life, in thirty seconds you can be righteous before God, washed as white as snow, and start over with a fresh slate. What is lost can be restored. That which is broken, can be repaired. While you breathe, there is hope.

    Pray this and mean it: "Lord forgive me for what I have done. Jesus come into my life and be My Lord and Savior from this day on." He will take care of the details. Keep a short list with God, be quick to repent and don't get caught in an endless loop while your life wastes away around you. The sooner that you deal with it, the better you will feel.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father I thank You for Your forgiveness. Please help me keep my life on course and draw my heart to You in a deeper way. I want You to be a part of my life, 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!
