    Yahweh said, 'I will destroy man whom I have created from the surface of the ground; man, along with animals, creeping things, and birds of the sky; for I am sorry that I have made them.' But Noah found favor in Yahweh's eyes. This is the history of the generations of Noah. Noah was a righteous man,...

    Of the angels he says, 'Who makes his angels winds, And his servants a flame of fire.' Hebrews 1:7 WEBWhen the preacher walked past our row of seats, it seemed like you could feel heat coming off of him.

    Hidden Away from Refreshing Hope Ministries on Vimeo. Today I want to talk about being hidden away by God. Unlike the world’s flash, fame, and fortune which is here today and gone tomorrow, before the Lord begins to use someone to bring change in an area, He will often hide them for a seaso...

On The Job Training

  • I have said these things to you, while still living with you. But the Counselor, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, he will teach you all things, and will remind you of all that I said to you. John 14:25 WEB

    When I rested my hand on the box, a light came on. When I moved my hand away, it went out. I examined the wires connected to the back of the hub and found that one of the network cables had a loose end. So I re-crimped the cable and the computer was back online within a minute.

    Thirty minutes before, I had never seen a computer network and knew absolutely nothing about them. An insurance company had called me when one of their computers had lost connection with the others. I worked on computers then as a hobby at night, and they had gotten my number from a friend. This was in the early nineties and even computers were rare here, much less a network of them. I had never actually seen a networked computer before.

    When they called, I started to tell them no, but they explained that the people who had originally installed the network were gone and they had no one else to call. I didn't want to go, but I felt the Holy Spirit say 'Go, and I will go with you' so I told them that I would come look at it. All the way there I fought back panic, and wondered what I was even doing, and why they had called me in the first place. I had never gone to school for computers. They were merely a hobby. I felt completely unqualified.

    I prayed all the way there, met the manager, and we stood beside a filing cabinet while he explained what was happening. There was a box on top of it with a lot of flashing lights, that was the network hub. I rested my hand right on top the problem and within ten minutes it was fixed and they thought that I was a network guru. That office became my client for the next seventeen years. The Lord did things like that day after day in my life. If I would go, He would go with me.

    The Holy Spirit will teach you 'all' things if you do not let fear hold you back. God is amazingly smart, and ahead of the cutting edge. He can give you the answers to the difficult problems and make you look like a genius in the process. Never neglect prayer. It is not just for spiritual purposes. 'But if any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach; and it will be given to him' (James 1:5).

    When the Lord opens the door, pray and step through it. He will equip you for the job and if you step out in faith, you cannot fail. David stepped out against Goliath when no one else would because he did not let fear hold him back. We love to prepare and have it all planned out in advance, but the Holy Spirit will teach you all things, and He specializes in on-the-job training. 'Go and I will go with you.'

    Prayer: Heavenly Father please set up divine encounters for me today and give me the wisdom to accomplish them. I love to see You work in my life and I yield myself to You. Use me, in the name of Jesus Christ I pray.
