    One of them, a lawyer, asked him a question, testing him. 'Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the law?' Jesus said to him, 'You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind. This is the first and great commandment. A second likewise is...

    Yahweh spoke to Moses and to Aaron, saying, 'How long shall I bear with this evil congregation, that murmur against me? I have heard the murmurings of the children of Israel, which they murmur against me. Tell them, As I live, says Yahweh, surely as you have spoken in my ears, so will I do to you' N...

    Elijah said to him, Elisha, please wait here, for Yahweh has sent me to Jericho. He said, As Yahweh lives, and as your soul lives, I will not leave you. So they came to Jericho. 2 Kings 2:4 WEBElisha had worked serving the prophet Elijah for several years when he suddenly asked him to stay behind. E...

Ten Times Better

  • And the king spoke with them, and among all of them none was found like Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah. Therefore they stood before the king. And in every matter of wisdom and understanding about which the king inquired of them, he found them ten times better than all the magicians and enchanters that were in all his kingdom. Daniel 1:19 ESV

    I was amazed that I had been able to fix it, but I did not tell them that. It was decades ago and I had just begun to work with computers, with the Lord pushing me into bigger and scarier things in that field. Computers were running DOS then and I knew nothing at all about networking. An insurance company called me and they had twelve computers networked together, but one had stopped communicating and they could not contact the original installer. I had never seen a network before.

    I wanted to tell them no, but felt that I should at least go and try. I prayed all the way there. 'Lord, I can't do this without You! Come with me.' When I walked into the office, I was scared and clueless. I found the owner standing near a filing cabinet and we discussed the problem. As I listened to him, I noticed a box with blinking lights (a hub) on top of the cabinet and began to inspect it. When I touched one of the wires on the back, a new light came on. When I let go, the light went out. That was the problem and in a few minutes, I had it fixed.

    They thought that I was a genius. Though I had never seen a computer network before, I had walked straight to the problem, repaired it and was gone in ten minutes. They were my client for the next fifteen years. You could say that it was a coincidence, but this happened every day for the first year of business. God put me into things way over my head, then used my hands to fix them. After the first year, He did less and I had to do more, yet He was always there when I needed Him.

    God wants to be a part of your life. He wants to help you and push you into greater things. Yes, it will be scary and the water is deep out there, but when Peter walked on the water, Jesus did not let him sink. This scripture is still relevant today, and if you will trust Him, God will make you ten times better.

    Prayer: Father, open the doors for me that I need in order to go to the next level. Come with me today! I cannot do this without You, in the name of Jesus.

Martin Snyder For the past year I have been ministering in an area of my hometown that is completely foreign to me, yet He is using me to reach out to people here. I believe that if God chooses you, He uses you and He gives you what you need to do what He needs you to do.

Tim Simmons
Tim Simmons Thank you for today's message.  I have just started a new and very challenging sales job in the software industry and there are times when I feel that there's no way I can learn all these new things and be successful.  I pause many times during the day to say a short prayer asking God to give me faith and confidence.  God bless you and your ministry!

Cathy Webb Thank you, Dion, for the reminder that God walks with me. This week I've experienced significantly more opportunities to feel "over my head" with student situations and home life challenges. I need to keep my eyes on Jesus and be in prayer for each one of these. The harvest is ripe!
