    When pride comes, then comes shame, but with humility comes wisdom. Proverbs 11:2 WEBThe movie "Pride and Prejudice" might have scored good ratings at the theatre, but it will not score you points with God. He looks at your heart instead of your clothing. These are two great hindrances to the Holy S...

    For you formed my inmost being. You knit me together in my mother's womb. I will give thanks to you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Your works are wonderful. My soul knows that very well. My frame wasn't hidden from you, when I was made in secret, woven together in the depths of the earth....

    For we were saved in hope, but hope that is seen is not hope. For who hopes for that which he sees? But if we hope for that which we don't see, we wait for it with patience. Romans 8:24 WEB'Oh I don't want to face tomorrow. I have a bad, bad, feeling about this.' On and on we go into a spiral of sel...

Peer Pressure

  • Amaziah also said to Amos, 'You seer, go, flee away into the land of Judah, and there eat bread, and prophesy there: but don't prophesy again any more at Bethel; for it is the king's sanctuary, and it is a royal house!' Then Amos answered Amaziah, 'I was no prophet, neither was I a prophet's son; but I was a herdsman, and a farmer of sycamore trees; and Yahweh took me from following the flock, and Yahweh said to me, 'Go, prophesy to my people Israel.' Now therefore listen to the word of Yahweh' Amos 7:12 WEB

    Amos was a shepherd and took care of fig trees, but the Lord called him to go prophesy to the people of Israel. When he did, Amaziah, who was the priest of the king's sanctuary told him to stop talking, and leave the area. So we have an experienced royal priest who was a friend of the king, without the word of the Lord. Contrasted with Amos, the simple shepherd who carried the anointed word of the Lord.

    God adores the little ones. He gives His word to them and fulfills His word with signs following. Everything Amos said came true, and then he went on to tell Amaziah that his wife would soon be a prostitute in the city. That was a bold step of faith and I am sure that it was frowned on by the elite priests that were present.

    Jesus was a carpenter (Mark 6:3). Peter, James, and John were just uneducated, common fishermen, but they preached with a fire and boldness that astonished those listening to them (Acts 4:13).

    Jesus told a parable about a Pharisee and a tax collector in Luke 18:10. The Pharisees were the religious elite, while the tax collectors were the lowest of the low and classed below prostitutes. After their prayers, Jesus said that the tax collector was more justified than the Pharisee.

    When the Lord calls you to do something, don't let someone with more experience, more education, a higher position, and a negative attitude, hold you back from what God is doing in your life. When the Lord gives you the dream and then opens the door for you, step through it. He is more than able to support you. If you feel insignificant today, then you are a perfect candidate to be filled with His presence.

    Prayer: Father, fill me with Your presence. Draw my heart to You. Speak to me and through me. I choose You today and pray that You fulfill Your perfect will in my life. Guide me, teach me, and let me grow in faith, in the name of Jesus Christ I pray.

    Note: Good morning! Just a reminder that we will be starting The Love Dare on Monday :)!

Twila Stierwalt I do believe that God does have a plan, and purpose for each of our lives, different plans for each of us. Psalm 139, The creator knows before we know. I pray that I will be still, wait, and listen so I can serve my LORD how He planed for me to.

Cheryl Hepler
Cheryl Hepler Thank you Dion,  mean to say but things I love about God I hear you say.  I may not be on top eaach day with current msgs but appreciate so when I get to read it is what the me inside is always glad to hear. Always aware of God growing up.  No teaching in particular.  He was not mentioned at home.  My parents I felt believed in their best way.  Pain for both growing up.  My Dad's father taped his mouth to the back of the kitchen gas stove where my Dad found him.  His brother was younger & put above my Dad like a pedalstal.   His Mother raised them in her parents home.  She had her hands full working two jobs.   My Mom left school in 8th grade to raise her baby brother.  Both parents had died.  She had a sister & older brother.  Mostly did waitress or store clerk work.  My Dad the same.  My brother & I did not have much. but as a family we hovered around  each other.  A try TG in mes my Dad & I played  cards &laughed some..  As we grew older I did not feel comfortable with my brother.  I felt fear.  I was not comfortable with men.  Not with mostly anyone.  Kids said go home Rebel because I was born in South.  Not comfortable in school at all.  God has been the only one to make me feel accepted.  Animals made me comfortable & acceptable.  My husband makes me feel comfortable.  Mostly men make uncomfortable & I really don't feel comfortable with women either.  Jesus accepts me as I am.  It means a lot to me.  I like RHM for I feel comfortable here. Glad to contribute to this ministry.  Jesus is here.  The way His Word shows or says.  You ,,& Sylvia do to because Jesus is reflected thru you both.  People are hungry for Him that is why I believe this ministry grows.  A soul can taste Him here.   I am comfortable here because He's here.  I would love to be here more but life gets full.  Now also with a soon 6 mo old & now a ,2 1/2 yr old Bassettes.  My neighbor is an ARL Rescue.  I am praying & going to tell her about Jesus.. We talk about God.  Next is His Son:). Thank you for being here. Glad to have found  this place where God is.. The one true God!!
