    Do to others as you would have them do to you. Luke 6:31 NIVAfter coming out of the grocery store, I found that I had parked way out in the parking lot and did not really feel like taking the buggy all the way back to the store. I saw a few other carts nearby that people had left in the parking lot....

    For you don't delight in sacrifice, or else I would give it. You have no pleasure in burnt offering. The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit. O God, you will not despise a broken and contrite heart. Psalms 51:16 WEBWhen I first came to the Lord, I was so zealous that I wanted to make up for everyt...

    The Wonder of You from Refreshing Hope Ministries on Vimeo. Today I want to talk about the wonder of the Lord. I believe that wonder is a great definition of what it feels like to have the Holy Spirit moving in your life. It can feel almost magical, surreal, at times you may ask yourself “I...

Harmony

  • Jesus, full of the Holy Spirit, returned from the Jordan, and was led by the Spirit into the wilderness Luke 4:1 WEB

    In music, one of the most beautiful sounds is harmony. There is nothing like it when a band has worked hard on perfecting the backing vocals and maybe even a few instruments, all blending together into one great voice. Working together, all the background parts make the one up front really shine.

    David was led by the Holy Spirit (Ps 51:11). Jesus was led by the Holy Spirit. The apostles were led by the Spirit. Today Jesus is in heaven, and it is the Holy Spirit that is here with us on the earth (John 14:16).

    The Holy Spirit works with us and through us today, and when we are willing to be led by Him, we sound great. We look so smart and really shine. He is the invisible force behind us. Even though He is with us, we have to work with Him. When He opens a door, we step through it. When He prompts us to give something to someone, we give it. When we feel we should encourage someone, we do so.

    It requires working together, day after day, hand in hand, one situation after another. We work with the Holy Spirit to accomplish Gods plans and purpose on the earth. Who will tell Bob about Jesus? Quite possibly you. Be sensitive to the guidance of the Holy Spirit and work in harmony with Him. There is no greater calling, and in the process He will make you shine and cause you to reach your fullest potential.

    Prayer: Lord fill me with Your Holy Spirit afresh and teach me to be sensitive to Your presence. Guide me today and use me. Reveal the gifts that you have placed in my life and train me to use them to their fullest potential, in Jesus name.

Kathy Banfield
Kathy Banfield And the Bible says, "Don't quench the Spirit!" I really think I had been doing that for many years.It's funny, but when one is led by the Spirit of God, others may deem that person (or people, especially at a charismatic prayer meeting) to be drunk! Oh, my own family has accused me of that--LOL. Actually, I think there is no better 'high" than the "high" of the Spirit--and there are no withdrawal symptoms or hangovers! LOL! God bless everyone here and I hope the sun is shining wherever you are, because it sure isn't a "sunny" Sunday in Paramus, NJ! love, Kathy (preparing to meet with my parents today, so please say a prayer for me and my daughter; something tells me we will need plenty of spiritual warfare!)

Carol Pady
Carol Pady There is no greater achievement than following the instructions of the Holy Spirit. When we obey even though we feel awkward,  the Spirit gives us the perfect words to say, the perfect prayers to pray and the perfect words to write. He also gives us Joy in doing things with His direction. Another great message from Pastor Dion !

Karen Pasquinelli
Karen Pasquinelli Amen!  Sometimes I will be at a checkout stand in a store and while being checked out a conversation with start and at the end of the conversation the cashiers says "Thank you I needed to hear that".  They will be talking about a problem in their life similar to what I faced at one time or another and I will tell them what helped me and it does involve prayer.  I will let them know how my life and or my family members life has changed as a result.  I walk out the door saying to myself "Wow I said all that and made them feel good"  it made me feel great that I helped them to feel good and perhaps I planted a seed.

Twila Stierwalt
Twila Stierwalt This devotional is so true. All things work together for good to those who love the LORD and are called according to His purpose. If we don't work together with Him things will not work for our good. That is why God sent His Spirit to live in us to teach us all things, He is doing His part now we need to lissen to Him and act on our belief. I pray that I will wait in silince to here His voice and obey with a willing heart.

Jeanie Fleming SELAH......if we were expected to muddle through on our own this child of YHVH would be in worse trouble than she has always been.  Praise YHVH for knowing we all need help every moment.  Cannot even imagine how awful things would be without the Holy Spirit guiding us.  Thank you Yeshua for saving me from myself.  This knowledge brings tears, great love and devotion for You.
