  • Intentional Growth 2 (Prayer) from Refreshing Hope Ministries on Vimeo. The Sermon on the Mount that Jesus gave is a goldmine of information. It is like the beating heart of my Bible. It spans 3 chapters, Matthew 5 through 7. I created a playlist of it and put it on repeat to listen to it all day...

    A man's steps are established by Yahweh. He delights in his way. Though he stumble, he shall not fall, for Yahweh holds him up with his hand. I have been young, and now am old, yet I have not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his children begging for bread. All day long he deals graciously, and lends...

The Desires of your Heart

  • Also delight yourself in Yahweh, And he will give you the desires of your heart. Psalms 37:4 WEB.

    Many years ago, I bought a new graphics card for my computer. It had the newly released Digital Visual Interface port. DVI had just come out, and it was now possible to connect a computer to a high-definition television. So you could use a tv like a giant monitor. I have always been intrigued by electronics and gadgets. So the thought of computer gaming on a big-screen television was something I wanted to try.

    My computer had a DVI output, and our television had an HDMI input. So to make this work, I would need a DVI to HDMI converter cable. At the time, this was cutting edge technology. I had never actually seen a cable like this, but I knew they existed. One morning before I set out to work, I was searching for the converter on the Internet. I found one for $40 plus shipping, but I decided not to buy it. It was not really a need, just something I wanted to play with, and $40 was a lot for a cable at the time.

    Our first client of the day was an insurance company who were having some computer issues. After we arrived, we spoke with the manager about what needed to be done. While we were talking, he reached into his desk drawer and tossed a cable on the desk. It was new, unopened, and still in the plastic package. Then he said:

    "I bought this a while back, and I don't even know what it is or why I bought it. Maybe you can use it."

    It was a brand new DVI to HDMI converter cable in an unopened package. He had bought it for me and did not even know it. I just laughed and thought that God is better to me than I am to myself. I am so thankful for the little things He does in our life. Seek the kingdom of God first, and all these things shall be added to you (Luke 12:31).

    Many times in my life, I have been happily serving the Lord, and suddenly something incredible happened that I had not prayed about or even mentioned to anyone. Things that were too trivial to pray about came to pass. I call them mini-miracles. I encourage you today: Get lost in the Lord's goodness. He is so awesome in every way, and He will take care of you. If it matters to you, it matters to Him.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father, I thank You, and I want to experience more of You in my life, outside of the church walls. I want to see You working in my life every day. In the name of Jesus Christ, 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

I have my "snow angel" yesterday for we were snowed the whole night last Monday and it was so thick. Not good for a 68 yr. old lady to shovel but angels do come. I PRAISE THE LORD FOR MY ANGEL.
