    Yahweh called Samuel again the third time. He arose and went to Eli and said, "Here I am; for you called me." Eli perceived that Yahweh had called the child. Therefore Eli said to Samuel, "Go, lie down. It shall be, if he calls you, that you shall say, 'Speak, Yahweh; for your servant hears.' " So S...

    They went out from there and passed through Galilee. He didn't want anyone to know it, for he was teaching his disciples, and said to them, "The Son of Man is being handed over to the hands of men, and they will kill him; and when he is killed, on the third day he will rise again." But they didn't u...

A Second Wind

  • Even the youths faint and get weary, and the young men utterly fall; but those who wait for Yahweh will renew their strength. They will mount up with wings like eagles. They will run, and not be weary. They will walk, and not faint. Isaiah 40:30 WEB

    I sat in the corner of my prayer room and wondered how I got here, too exhausted to pray anymore. Out of work for months while the bills piled up around us, there was not much in the natural to be happy about. I thought why even bother, I had spent months of praying with my face to the carpet but so far it had come to nothing but silence. Now we were packing to move from our home, and I felt abandoned, and alone.

    As I sat there in silence contemplating what to take with us and what to leave behind, His presence suddenly descended and I had an open vision. It was like a dream, except I was wide awake. I saw myself climbing into a boxing ring and putting on the gloves. The Lord was behind me, outside of the ring like a coach and He said, 'You're not alone, for I am in your corner, and I have prepared you for this day. Now get in there and fight!'

    Something changed in me, and around me. I came out of that room with a renewed hope and at peace. I told my wife Sylvia that it was going to be ok, I don't know how, but I know that it will for a word from God changes everything.

    By the end of the week, I had a career change: I became a pastor. Also a friend suddenly stepped in and paid all of our bills for the month. When all of my strength was gone, He refreshed me, He gave me hope, He gave us a future. Those who wait (hope) in the Lord shall renew their strength. The fight is not over, and you are not out of the game yet. So get back up, and get ready to go another round.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father I thank You for being there for me. Please cover me with Your presence today. I need You Lord more than ever before. I want to walk with You, talk with You, and to know You in a special way. In the name of Jesus Christ I pray.

    Note: 'Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your request to God.' (2 Philippians 4:6-7) ~ If you have a prayer need, we are here for you! We and the prayer team are ready to lift you up at our private prayer page: RHM Prayer Network

Amen! Thank you, Pastor Dion, for today's message, I really needed to hear this today! I have to cling to the Lord, put my hope and trust in Him alone and constantly remind myself to say: "My hope is in the Lord, He will not forsake me and my loved ones, He is in charge" and patiently wait on Him, for He is my God, my Heavenly Father!!!
