    You see then that by works, a man is justified, and not only by faith. In the same way, wasn't Rahab the prostitute also justified by works, in that she received the messengers and sent them out another way? For as the body apart from the spirit is dead, even so faith apart from works is dead. James...

    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...

Crazy

  • Make an ark of gopher wood. You shall make rooms in the ark, and shall seal it inside and outside with pitch. This is how you shall make it. The length of the ark will be three hundred cubits, the breadth of it fifty cubits, and the height of it thirty cubits. Genesis 6:14 WEB

    Noah had a driving passion that no one else understood. He could see beyond the curve. To those walking by, he must have appeared crazy. It had never rained on the earth before, a mist came up from the ground and watered the plants (Genesis 2:6). Yet here was a man building a huge ship in his yard.

    Noah was different from everyone else. He had a calling on his life. God had told him to build an ark, and he was going to do it, though in the natural it made absolutely no sense at all. Day after day Noah worked on this ark and the years went by with nothing to mention but sore muscles and splinters. Then the final day arrived and the first rain drop fell. That is when everything changed, and the people no longer thought that Noah was crazy.

    What God had promised was not forgotten, or wrong, or mistaken, but patiently waiting for the proper time to arrive. In Noah's life, everyone else turned out to be wrong, and what Noah believed, turned out to be right. In the end, only eight souls were saved on the earth: Noah, his wife, his sons, and their wives. Noah did his part, the part that God had told him to do, and then God took care of the rest. Noah didn't have to make it rain, he just needed to build the ark, and it took a lot of hard work and patience to see it through.

    When you don't fit in and they don't understand you, know that you are not the first. When they don't allow you into their circle because you are different, it is ok. Sometimes what the Lord calls you to do will appear crazy to those around you and they will not understand it. Noah's peers did not help him with his project. Do not let their rejection stop you from doing what God has called you to do. Work on your part each day and let God take care of the rest. Stay the course, keep on building.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father, please guide me into all that You have for me. Reveal the gifts that You have placed in my life and teach me to use them better. Adjust my focus and straighten my walk. Reveal my mission here in a clearer way, in the name of Jesus Christ I pray.

Amen! Remember, it took Noah 100 years to build the Ark. That is a long time for people to laugh at you. Thank You Lord!
