    The Seed from Refreshing Hope Ministries on Vimeo. We have a majestic oak tree in our yard that is older than me. It would probably take three men to reach their arms around the base of it at the moment. It stands about sixty feet tall, and the canopy is at least sixty feet across. During the hot...

    He went out, bearing his cross, to the place called "The Place of a Skull", which is called in Hebrew, "Golgotha", where they crucified him, and with him two others, on either side one, and Jesus in the middle. Pilate wrote a title also, and put it on the cross. There was written, "JESUS OF NAZARETH...

Rags to Riches

  • Then the king gave Daniel high honors and many great gifts, and made him ruler over the whole province of Babylon and chief prefect over all the wise men of Babylon. Dan. 2:48 ESV

    Daniel was born in the royal family, but he was taken prisoner when Nebuchadnezzar captured Jerusalem in 597 B.C. Then Daniel was taken from his homeland and made a eunuch. He became a servant in Babylon against his will. It wasn't the happiest of starts, but in due time, God raised him up to be second-in-command. He became the wisest man in Babylon.

    Joseph was born as his father's favorite son, but was then sold into slavery by his brothers and served time in prison before he was promoted to second-in-command by Pharaoh. Moses was raised and educated in Pharaoh's royal family, then spent forty years tending sheep in the wilderness before he became the most powerful man living on earth. David was anointed by Samuel, but then he had to run from Saul for years before he actually became the king.

    God has a plan for you, but before it comes to pass, there is a time of proving, pruning, and maturing. To us, it often looks like just plain waiting. Do not get discouraged while you are in the wilderness. God is completely faithful, and the things that He has spoken to you, He will bring to pass. You cannot have a rags to riches story, without spending time in the rags.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father, I wait on You. I thank You so much for all that You are doing in my life and I know that You will guide me down the best possible path. Please have Your way in my life, in the name of Jesus I pray. Amen!

    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
