    Hidden Away from Refreshing Hope Ministries on Vimeo. Today I want to talk about being hidden away by God. Unlike the world’s flash, fame, and fortune which is here today and gone tomorrow, before the Lord begins to use someone to bring change in an area, He will often hide them for a seaso...

    For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, says Yahweh. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. Isaiah 55:8 WEBThere were many times in my life that I worked something out in my mind, planned t...

    Then the king said to Haman, Make haste, and take the clothing and the horse, as you have said, and do even so to Mordecai the Jew, who sits at the king's gate: let nothing fail of all that you have spoken. Then took Haman the clothing and the horse, and arrayed Mordecai, and caused him to ride thro...

Cheap Sunglasses

  • One of the criminals who were hanged railed at him, saying, Are you not the Christ? Save yourself and us! But the other rebuked him, saying, Do you not fear God, since you are under the same sentence of condemnation? Luke 23:39–40 ESV

    Three men were crucified together at a place called Golgotha. The One in the center was Jesus, the Son of God. There was a convicted criminal on His left and another His right. One of the criminals ridiculed Jesus while the other defended Him. Both criminals were caught, convicted, and crucified. What was the difference between the two criminals?

    Here is one difference: One saw himself as redeemable and the other did not. Even though the Son of God was a few feet away and would have forgiven them both, one could not see it through his pain-filled life. Each time I have been hurt in my life, or hurt someone else, I grew a little more calloused. It became a little harder to believe that God cared about me, that He still loved me. I was looking at my future through cheap sunglasses and thinking that the future, would just be more of the past. These lens distort your vision.

    It is important that you realize that whatever you have done, it is not too late and that you can be redeemed. You are the one that makes the difference, and makes the choice. One thief was saved, and one was not. It was their choice. Have hope. God loves you and He still has a plan for your life. Do not let the pain of the past keep you from seeing the open arms of Jesus today. He chose you, now choose Him.
