    For you formed my inmost being. You knit me together in my mother's womb. I will give thanks to you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Your works are wonderful. My soul knows that very well. My frame wasn't hidden from you, when I was made in secret, woven together in the depths of the earth....

    For we were saved in hope, but hope that is seen is not hope. For who hopes for that which he sees? But if we hope for that which we don't see, we wait for it with patience. Romans 8:24 WEB'Oh I don't want to face tomorrow. I have a bad, bad, feeling about this.' On and on we go into a spiral of sel...

    Baby Jesus from Refreshing Hope Ministries on Vimeo. Today I want to talk about “Who is Jesus?” I feel that we take it for granted that people actually know that much about Him. In the world we see Jesus as a baby in a manger, then crucified on a cross. The life of Jesus seems to span...

The River Crossing

  • After the death of Moses the servant of the LORD, the LORD said to Joshua the son of Nun, Moses’ assistant, Moses my servant is dead. Now therefore arise, go over this Jordan, you and all this people, into the land that I am giving to them, to the people of Israel. Every place that the sole of your foot will tread upon I have given to you, just as I promised to Moses. Joshua 1:1–3 ESV 

    Painful memories came to Joshua’s mind as the Lord told him to arise and cross over to the promised land. Joshua was now about eighty years old. Forty years ago they had gone to explore this land, but when it came time to cross over, instead of obeying God the people became paralyzed with fear and wanted to return to Egypt.

    After wandering in the wilderness until that generation died, the Lord had now brought them back to this place and told them again to cross over. Joshua had to ask himself, would the people go this time, or would we take another lap around the mountain? I am sure that he breathed a sigh of relief once they had crossed the Jordan river and were on the other side.

    Now I want to remind you, although you once fully knew it, that Jesus, who saved a people out of the land of Egypt, afterward destroyed those who did not believe (Jude 1:5 ESV). If you feel that God is telling you to do something, do not let fear hold you back. You can go so far and accomplish so much if you will just step out in faith and trust Him. Be the one that trusted God and crossed the river.
