    Sanballat and Geshem sent to me, saying, 'Come! Let's meet together in the villages in the plain of Ono.' But they intended to harm me. I sent messengers to them, saying, 'I am doing a great work, so that I can't come down. Why should the work cease while I leave it and come down to you?' Nehemiah 6...

Website Migration:

Notice: We will be migrating to our new website over the next week, and hopefully things like email delivery will improve. During the transition, no emails will be sent. The latest devotional is always posted at the top of the devotional list. So bookmark it, create a shortcut, make it your homepage, or write the URL down on a napkin so you can find it later :)

 

Notice 4/13/24: The new RHM website is live and ready! This current site will be replaced on Sunday evening 4/14. You can sign into the new website and subscribe to the devotional now. Here is the link to getting started. The live service will take place here on Sunday morning before the move. Thank you for your patience and prayers during this transition!

Peace of Mind

  • In nothing be anxious, but in everything, by prayer and petition with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your thoughts in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:6'7 WEB.

    In the past, many saints and martyrs have faced terrible trials and death with peace in their hearts that no one could explain. Some sang hymns on the way to their execution or even while being burned on a stake. They had access to peace that surpassed all understanding.

    Today many of us do not have this peace, but it is still available. God has not changed His mind. There is a peace that surpasses all understanding, and it is available through prayer. It's a supernatural peace you don't understand, but you know everything will be OK.

    Many times in my life, I have faced a situation where I had no answers, but after praying for a few moments, I knew what to do. The Lord taught me to lean on Him, especially in the workplace. When God shows up at church, it's hopefully expected. When He shows up in the workplace, it begins to shake things up, and it puts a smile on my face. My trials may be minor compared to the great saints, but they are major to me.

    When things begin to overwhelm you, stop and pray for a moment. Make your requests known to God. Pray until the peace comes and the stress leaves. Pour your heart out to God as you would your best friend and talk with Him throughout the day.

    Also, be yourself when praying, and don't pretend to be too Holy or speak in religious biblical terms to impress Him. He knows you far better than that. The best you can do is humbly acknowledge that you need His help today. Pray about your needs, and then patiently trust Him to come through.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father, I thank You so much for taking care of me. Please give me the grace to face this day and make it fun, simple, and easy. Cover me with Your presence and fill me with Your peace. In the name of Jesus Christ, I pray. Amen!

    Note: For those following the Creation Photography weekly challenges, here is this week's theme from group leader, Dianna Wyles: 2 Corinthians 9:10 "Now he who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food will also supply and increase your store of seed and will enlarge the harvest of your righteousness." ~ Obviously, 'The Harvest' will be our next fun and inspiring theme. This is a creatively fun theme so think outside the box if you can! Show us where your happiness is harvested, or show us your garden harvest! The sky is really the limit here so just have fun with it. Thank you all for your work and faithfulness in the spirit of our loving Heavenly Father. Enjoy your week, everyone ~ God bless!
