    He spoke to them many things in parables, saying, 'Behold, a farmer went out to sow. As he sowed, some seeds fell by the roadside, and the birds came and devoured them. Others fell on rocky ground, where they didn't have much soil, and immediately they sprang up, because they had no depth of earth. ...

    The rooster crowed the second time. Peter remembered the words that Jesus said to him, 'Before the rooster crows twice, you will deny me three times.' When he thought about that, he wept. Mark 14:72 WEB.Peter said that he would die before he would deny Jesus. Then later that night, Peter denied that...

The End Of The Line

  • Why is the LORD bringing us into this land, to fall by the sword? Our wives and our little ones will become a prey. Would it not be better for us to go back to Egypt? And they said to one another, 'Let us choose a leader and go back to Egypt.' Numbers 14:2 ESV

    The Israelites were standing on the border of the land that God had promised to give them. God had done incredible signs and wonders in their lives and had just delivered them from slavery in Egypt. Now, when so close to a major breakthrough, they stubbornly refused to take the next step. They wanted to kill Moses, appoint a new leader and return to Egypt. They would do anything except what God asked them to do, and they had now reached the end of the line. They would go no further.

    I have seen many people get stalled in life because they could not take that next step. While standing on the border of their own promised land, they were too terrified or stubborn to do what God asked, and they just sat there. Some of us should have left that place fifteen years ago, but we could not let it go. There are pastors in churches that should have left years ago, but they they still sit there fossilized. God will not make you obey. He will let you die off and use your children when you refuse to take the next step.

    You can break the cycle. Choose to obey the Lord's prompting, it is for your own good. Though it looks short term scary, it will be long term beneficial. Pray hard and take the risk. If you feel that you have been left behind and are no longer where you should be, repent, get up and take the next step. God will restore you and put you back on track.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father, give me the grace to follow you wherever you call me. Help me to face any obstacle and stay in step with You. Let me be the one that enters the land and does not retreat, in the name of Jesus.

    Note: 'Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your request to God.' (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

Thank you Lord Jesus for guiding me through all obstacles. What we are all going through at this time in history will be worth the wait. God is talking to his children. Don't give up friends, for we must hang on a little longer.  Christian's are going through a silent war. Let's all keep our mind on Christ and pray like we have never prayed before. Our Heavenly Father is listening.  Amen
