    In times past, when Saul was king over us, it was you who led Israel out and in. Yahweh said to you, You shall be shepherd of my people Israel, and you shall be prince over Israel. So all the elders of Israel came to the king to Hebron; and king David made a covenant with them in Hebron before Yahwe...

    Inspiration from Refreshing Hope Ministries on Vimeo. Today I want to talk about inspiration, when a creative idea suddenly downloads into your brain. That is not an accident. It happens for a purpose, and it may be more important than we think. Let’s begin in Jeremiah chapter 1 verse 4: T...

    Yahweh's angel found her by a fountain of water in the wilderness, by the fountain on the way to Shur. He said, 'Hagar, Sarai's servant, where did you come from? Where are you going?' She said, 'I am fleeing from the face of my mistress Sarai.' Genesis 16:7 WEBHagar wandered alone in the desert. She...

Wait Here

  • 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 WEB

    Elisha had worked serving the prophet Elijah for several years when he suddenly asked him to stay behind. Elisha said no and kept following him. Three times in a row Elijah asked him to stay behind somewhere, but Elisha would not stay.

    Elisha would not take no for an answer, and he inherited a double portion anointing and lived the life of miracles that we read about today. There were many other Prophets too, fifty at Jericho alone. These all stayed behind and missed the anointing that Elisha received. If Elisha would have listened to those over him and stayed behind, he would missed the best part of his life.

    There was a time in my life, where after serving faithfully for years, God called us to move on. I was fasting a lot and my spirit became restless and hungry for more, but we were told by the ones over us to wait. As I looked around, there were people twice my age still waiting there. The leaders meant well, and we received the usual one-on-one sermons about faithfulness, dedication, and rewards for those who wait, but God was telling us to do something else and they could not see it.

    We stayed on longer and it became very messy. It would have been better for everyone if we had obeyed God and left gracefully when He told us. Instead, we did it their way and we found that there is no drama like church drama. After taking a year off from church to heal, God plugged us in somewhere else and the Spirit began to flow in our lives again.

    There will be times when you will have to choose between obeying God, or man. When you choose to obey man instead, you stall in your journey. This choice may involve a very difficult decision, and you have to be prayerfully careful, but sometimes when God calls you to do something, He just tells YOU about it. Keep yourself humble during this time with fasting and prayer, because pride will blind you. Sometimes to follow God, you cannot accept 'Please Stay Here' as the answer.

    Prayer: Father, please give me a clear vision and put me where You want me to be. Speak to me in a clear, unmistakable way that I can understand. Give me grace to live this life and help me make the right decisions, in the name of Jesus Christ I pray.

    Note: Good morning, we pray you have a blessed and peaceful day as we commemorate Dr. King''s birthday! ALSO, FYI for those who have blessed this ministry with your financial support, we will be sending contribution statements out by the end of the month. Only those who send one or more gift of $250 need a statement for the IRS, so not all may receive a statement, but please know that we so appreciate every donation, no matter what the amount! We pray for blessings over each one and are thankful for every person who has chosen to walk with RHM. Thank you all and have a blessed day!

David and Dianna Wyles
David and Dianna Wyles Amen! And Amen! Had I left my job with the first hundred gentle nudges, it would not have been so messy! I knew early on in 2014, it was time to move forward but I had been at my job for more than 15 years by that time and change is a scary thing for me sometimes.  I pressed on and ignored those nudges in my heart. Even though I prayed often about my work situation, I did not listen to the answer I was given. I did eventually listen, but not before much drama and hurt had taken place. Even though my boss said "it's not ideal, it's the best I can do! please stay!" There was no true value to it because she was letting the situation stay too. It was only getting worse and not better. These days are much less drama and healing is my friend. God is working hard on my behalf and I know he is leading me to where he truly wants me. Praying this time to have those listening ears from the begining!!! Thank you pastor Dion! Blessings :) Pastor's Prayer: Father, please give me a clear vision and put me where You want me to be. Speak to me in a clear, unmistakable way that I can understand. Give me grace to live this life and help me make the right decisions, in the name of Jesus Christ I pray.

Deleted Member Amen, Leslie, I come in agreement with you in prayer today, that Jesus will let you have the clear vision to see what He has for you and that you will know without a doubt that the door that opens will be the right one and that you will have strength, comfort and peace that passes all of our understanding. That you will be filled with joy overflowing knowing that Jesus has all things under His control and He will take care of you, even if He has to send an angel down, He will not forsake you and He will be with you all the way and He will give you that clear direction and you will know that it came from Jesus and Jesus alone, for He is our provider and healer and He is our everything and He loves you so much, that He gave His all for us, and He didn't die in vain, He lives today so that we can live abundantly blessed spiritually, physically, emotionally, financially and in all things, because HE LOVES US SO MUCH.  Love and Hugs and Prayers.(Please know you are in my prayers everyday and I am believing for great miracles and many many blessings.)

Deleted Member Amen, may we always allow Jesus to be the One that guides our every step and our every word and deed, may we all pray and ask for a clear word from Him as we go through each day and always know that He will never ever leave us nor forsake us, that He will love us beyond measure and carry us through all the storms of this life and He is the One that can calm any storm, no matter how big or how small, He will always be there for His children. Love and Hugs and Prayers.

Norman Glaze Sr Absolutely Absolutely. No Drama like Church Drama, lol. It would be funny if it wasn't so pitiful. I guess man in his fallen state is just a mess. Thank God we are New Creatures in Christ(Now if we can just remember that :) As always, your guileless way of sharing your soul is so very refreshing. Love and Prayers to All     Vive La RHM :)

Deleted Member Amen, to that, there is No Drama like Church Drama. But Praise The Lord whatever we go through, He is always with us, sometimes we have to laugh at a situation and not let it get us down, because that would be just what satan would want, if he can create hurt and pain in our hearts from those we thought loved us so, then he begins to have an open door to try to cause more drama, but if we allow Jesus to guard our hearts at all times that when things like that come our way, we can and will overcome through The Almighty Power of Jesus. I am so thankful that He loves us so much, that even through the hurt, we can find joy and laughter. God bless.

Deleted Member I pray too, that I always listen to what Jesus is telling me to do and not man, because even though men sometimes mean well, they don't know what Jesus really has in store for us if we will only listen and obey.

Twila Stierwalt Through my life, in different seasons of my life, God has lead me in many different directions. My gifts has always been the same, He has just had me use them in ways I would have never expected. What a joy, and blessing, and journey it has been. I pray that I will always be ready for a change to another season to serve my LORD Jesus Christ. and listen to His voice telling me to go His way.
