    O LORD, in your strength the king rejoices, and in Your salvation how greatly he exults! You have given him his heart's desire and have not withheld the request of his lips. Psalms 21:1 ESVI was scared when the call came because I had grown up on a farm and had no formal education in computers, but ...

    But Rahab the prostitute and her father's household and all who belonged to her, Joshua saved alive. And she has lived in Israel to this day, because she hid the messengers whom Joshua sent to spy out Jericho.

The Little Seed

  • Hear, then, the parable of the farmer. When anyone hears the word of the Kingdom, and doesn't understand it, the evil one comes, and snatches away that which has been sown in his heart. Matt. 13:18 WEB

    Once while praying about something, I felt like I heard a small whisper back from the Lord, encouraging me to go ahead with what I was praying about. Then immediately afterwards came doubt, unbelief, and a feeling like 'that's not God, just your imagination.' So I prayed about it again and this scripture came to me very clearly.

    God's word starts as a little seed, but as you believe, it will grow into something beautiful. When the Lord speaks something to your heart, the enemy comes immediately to cast doubt, unbelief and confusion on you. It is an attempt to stop the positive effects that God intended. Rather than you stepping out into what God has for you, the enemy wants to kill your dream before it takes root, and before it gets started.

    God works in our lives with His word: 'He sends his word, and heals them, And delivers them from their graves' (Psalms 107:20). This includes the 'Logos' (written word) and the 'Rhema' (spoken word). When Jesus said: It is written, 'Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God' (Matthew 4:4), that is the Rhema word.

    God is not dead and He still speaks to us today if we will listen. Jesus said many times: 'He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says' (Matt. 11:15, Mark 4:9, 4:23, Luke 8:8, 14:35, Rev. 2:7, 2:11, 2:17, 2:29, 3:6, 3:13, 3:22). Many are spiritually deaf, but don't let that stop you from listening.

    When you pray and get a positive response, believe, hang onto it, and step out in to what God has for you. If you fall, He is able to catch you. If afterwards you have feelings of doubt and fear, you can bet that the enemy is trying to thwart God's plan for you by holding you back. Do not let the enemy take away what God has in store for you through unbelief.

    Prayer: Father I choose to believe, help me overcome my unbelief. I want more of You in my life. I want to serve You with my whole heart and know you intimately. Please be a part of my life, in the name of Jesus Christ I pray.

Carol Pady
Carol Pady Amen! I know there have been many times when God nudged me to do something and Satan immediately began to try to confuse me or tell me it was not from God. Other times He chose to uninspire me by whispering, you will fail, you don't have what it takes, you will make a fool of yourself. I have come to know that when I pray for discernment He gives me the wisdom to know Satan's tactics. Then He gives me the confidence and empowers me to carry on. When you hear that voice that says you can't,  say yes I am able to do it,  Christ strengthens me !

Cheryl Hepler Amen!!  I thought of you Pastor Todd.... All the years you went with no word from the Lord.  I believe Satan is on the prowl to see who he can devour, our mind, spirit, & body.  I like the reminder of seed falling to the ground because no one can tell them...teach them..,,Yes

Janet Marsh-Lord
Janet Marsh-Lord Thank you for this very important message. I guess when things are not clear we need to go back to God and pray again for clarity.How interesting that the Christian radio station I listen to in NZ is called "Rhema".It is a wonderful Christian forum for all things Christian. I love the wonderful music, the proclamation of the gospel, world news and interesting topics, both serious and humourous.It helps me in my walk with the Lord. Thank you Pastor Dion for your wonderful Ministry.

Kathy Banfield
Kathy Banfield We must pray without ceasing, even when that dirty little devil named Satan tries to steal our joy. I know many of us get depressed during the holiday season, and I think I know why. It's Satan, trying to ruin our joy! I've been reading my Bible every night, and notice I started having very disturbing dreams that didn't  make sense until I realized it's Satan , trying to interfere again.Whenever I get close to God, Satan always attenmpts to step in, but now that I'm aware, I won't let him affect me as I did last year. Why should we let the devil win when Jesus already took  care of him so many years ago?/
