    Therefore Jesus answered them, 'Don't murmur among yourselves. No one can come to me unless the Father who sent me draws him, and I will raise him up in the last day. John 6:43 WEBI could see from the look on some people's faces that their greatest wish on Earth, was for me to stop telling them abou...

    Though I walk in the middle of trouble, you will revive me. You will stretch out your hand against the wrath of my enemies. Your right hand will save me. Yahweh will fulfill that which concerns me; your loving kindness, Yahweh, endures forever. Don't forsake the works of your own hands. Psalm 138:7 ...

    Thank You from Refreshing Hope Ministries on Vimeo. Today I want to talk about the importance of being thankful. Jesus lived on Earth as our example, and He was so thankful and full of praise. No matter what you have been through, there are still some things that you can be thankful about. An imp...

Dare To Dream

  • When they had crossed, Elijah said to Elisha, Ask what I shall do for you, before I am taken from you. And Elisha said, Please let there be a double portion of your spirit on me. 2 Kings 2:9 ESV

    Walking together down the road, Elisha was just a servant. The mighty prophet Elijah was renowned for calling fire down from heaven multiple times. He caused a draught on the land, and then caused it to rain. He resurrected people from the dead, fed people for years from a small jar, and much more. He was a force to be reckoned with.

    Elisha could only dream of being used by God like that. Still, he asked for a double portion anointing, and the Lord gave it to him. Elijah did fourteen miracles, Elisha did twenty-eight. Exactly twice as many.

    Do not be afraid to dream big. God can easily surpass your wildest dreams and go beyond your imagination, if you will go with Him. Of course, keep God centered and be a good servant / steward along the way, just as Elisha did. Dare to follow your dream. It just may be that the Lord placed that within you for such a time as this.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father, give me a fresh vision and renew the dream that you gave me. I want all that You have for me Lord, in the name of Jesus.

    Note: Happy Father''s Day! We pray that you all have a very blessed day as we honor the fathers in our lives and reflect on the love that our heavenly Father showed us through the sacrifice of His Son!

Jim Jarrell Now is the time to dream big and ask God for your real purpose. God told me this morning at 4;00 AM, "You have it all wrong, My Gospel does not need to be Marketed, people will soon need it!" I think we need to get ready.

Kathy Banfield
Kathy Banfield My dreams are the one thing my parents and sister can't take from me! Yesterday, I felt compelled to listen to an old Aerosmith song, 'Dream On", over and over! Now I found my sister is falsely accusing me of sending her harassing emails--I have a new email address just to prevent HER from bothering ME! I'm beginning to realize what Rubin "Hurricane" Carter went through way back when!

Mary Pat Taylor This especially speaks to me, as I am at a time in my life when my dreams and what I've worked for and love to do are in jeopardy due to health.  The Lord is helping me keep my eyes on Him though, and rely on His promises like this. I seem to be getting lots of messages like this one lately..wonderful how He does this when I need some comfort and encouragement!
