    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...

Man On The Run

  • Ahab told Jezebel all that Elijah had done, and how he had killed all the prophets with the sword. Then Jezebel sent a messenger to Elijah, saying, 'So let the gods do to me, and more also, if I don't make your life as the life of one of them by tomorrow about this time!' When he saw that, he arose, and ran for his life, and came to Beersheba, which belongs to Judah, and left his servant there. But he himself went a day's journey into the wilderness, and came and sat down under a juniper tree. Then he requested for himself that he might die, and said, 'It is enough. Now, O Yahweh, take away my life; for I am not better than my fathers.' 1 Kings 19:1 WEB

    Yesterday Elijah was a man to be reckoned with. He had called down fire from heaven and defeated hundreds of false prophets at Mount Carmel (1 Kings 18:38). He had prayed for rain and broken a three year drought (1 Kings 18:42). He had even raced a horse on foot and won!

    Now he was a man on the run, fleeing for his life from that rotten Jezebel who hated him. One of the greatest prophets of the Bible was now scared, alone, depressed, and praying to die, even though he had seen so many powerful miracles in his life. Elijah was tired, burnt out, and he did not want to continue on. He prayed to end it. The Lord understood and told him to anoint Elisha, who would be his successor. Then He took Elijah home in a whirlwind.

    If you do anything meaningful for God, there will be resistance. Sometimes the greatest successes in life are followed by purely utter failure. There is often a backlash that often follows a breakthrough. So don't be alarmed if things suddenly go wrong after a major victory, this to will pass. We may not win every fight, but we will win the war. Stand your ground and stay in the battle. When you fall, get back up. What has been lost can be recovered. The end of a thing can be better than the beginning.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father I thank You for all that You do for me. Please strengthen me and confirm Your words to me. Let me know that I am in the right place, doing the right things. Help me recognize when You are speaking to me. In the name of Jesus Christ I pray.

Thank you for this! Just last night as I couldn't sleep, I was feeling discouraged becuase for the last two years, every time I feel like I'm moving forward and things are getting better, something bad happens to knock me back down again.  Really praying for a break when things go well for a good while soon!
