    Petrified from Refreshing Hope Ministries on Vimeo. Today I want to talk about becoming petrified. So scared, so bound up, so terrified inside, that you are unable to think or move. Frozen in place. Unable to make decisions. An example is the guards at Jesus’ tomb on Sunday morning. At the ...

    However you are just in all that is come on us; for you have dealt truly, but we have done wickedly; neither have our kings, our princes, our priests, nor our fathers, kept your law, nor listened to your commandments and your testimonies with which you did testify against them. For they have not ser...

I Did It My Way

  • And on the seventh day God finished his work that He had done, and He rested on the seventh day from all His work that He had done. So God blessed the seventh day and made it holy, because on it God rested from all His work that He had done in creation. Genesis 2:2 ESV

    After coming home from church, I went straight to work on the new mail server. I kept hearing about not working on the sabbath day on my audio Bible and when I flipped the Bible open, that is where it would land. You would think I could take a hint, but I managed to brush it off week after week. After all, this was God's work and God does not want me to be lazy.

    Today though, the work was like swimming in mud. What should have been a simple job, turned into a horrible ordeal. The machine seemed possessed. At the end of the day, I would have been ahead if I would have just stayed in bed. For a long time we would work on Sunday, but take off Monday or another day. This seemed fine. When I started working seven days a week, He cracked the whip.

    I repented, said I was sorry, and the next day fixed the server in thirty minutes. Since then, I don't work seven days a week anymore and God has really blessed the other six.

    When you feel the Lord speaking to you about something, listen. Don't be hardheaded like me. Can you have it your way? Absolutely. You will be much better off though, to go His way.

    Prayer: Father, please bless the work of my hands and allow me to rest peacefully when I lay down. Help me get my work done in six days so I will not have to work seven, in the name of Jesus.

Amen! Jesus said He would give us peace, but we have to accept it, or peace will never come. Thank You Lord!
