    The disciples were filled with joy and with the Holy Spirit. Acts 13:52 WEBWhile at the beach one day, I watched some kids playing with a beach ball. They would hit the ball and it would soar into the air, but then gradually float back down to the earth. Without some form of lift, the ball will alwa...

    The Journey from Refreshing Hope Ministries on Vimeo. Today I want to talk about the journey of life. Our thinking is often consumed with what is happening today, or tomorrow, or sometimes what happened yesterday. God thinks in the long term. He can see our entire life at once. Think of it like t...

    'He said to another, 'Follow me!' But he said, 'Lord, allow me first to go and bury my father.' But Jesus said to him, 'Leave the dead to bury their own dead, but you go and announce the Kingdom of God.' Another also said, 'I want to follow you, Lord, but first allow me to bid farewell to those who ...

Lost And Found

  • 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 WEB

    Hagar wandered alone in the desert. She had always done what she was told, but now it had become too much and she had ran from the painful life that she knew. She was pregnant, having to care for herself, and far away from where she should have been in life.

    Hagar means: 'A stranger; one that fears.' She was an outsider in her own house. The Angel of the Lord found her lost in the desert and told her to return and submit because God had plans for her and her unborn child.

    Even when Hagar did everything wrong, God found her and took care of her. He spoke of her future, and took her mind off the pain in her past. She broke down and called the Lord 'You are the God who sees me.'

    Each time I have messed up and later returned to the Lord in prayer, He spoke about the future, not about the past. If you miss the Lord, He will find you. We often worry too much and ask 'Is this what God wants me to do?' until we get paralyzed and do nothing at all. You cannot steer a car that is not moving, but once it starts moving, then you can correct its course.

    When we get stalled in life, we pray and then try and make the best decision. Sometimes it ends with: 'Lord, unless you tell us no, then we are going to do this.' When you get off course, He will bring you back with a word (Isaiah 30:21).

    If you feel that the Lord wants you do something but you have been held back because you may be wrong, or you have run away from it, know that He will always find you. The Lord still seeks out those who are lost.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father, I thank You for Your forgiveness. Help me get back on my feet and give me the grace to stand strong for I cannot do this without You. I give you permission to pull me back up and push me forward when I stall. 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!

Oh Heavenly Father I thank You for Your help and forgiveness, sometimes I get stalled and with no will to keep going. Lead me through the door I must go through because without You I am nothing. Give me the grace to stand strong and to follow Your designs, in Jesus name I pray. Amen. Lord without You I'm nothing. 

God bless you Pastor, excellent devotional.
