    Yahweh spoke to Manasseh, and to his people; but they didn't listen. Therefore Yahweh brought on them the captains of the army of the king of Assyria, who took Manasseh in chains, bound him with fetters, and carried him to Babylon. When he was in distress, he begged Yahweh his God, and humbled himse...

    Your word is a lamp to my feet, And a light for my path. Psalms 119:105 WEBThe old oil lamps that were used in biblical times had a small radius of light. They would light the path just a few feet ahead of you, and you could not see very far down the road. When traveling by night, you could see just...

Buying The Field

  • Again, the Kingdom of Heaven is like treasure hidden in the field, which a man found, and hid. In his joy, he goes and sells all that he has, and buys that field. Matthew 13:44 WEB

    Jesus told a parable of a man who found treasure hidden in a field, then he joyfully sold all that he had so that he could buy it and make it his own. He could not take the treasure without buying the entire field, and though it cost him everything, it was absolutely worth it. His total commitment in buying the field, brought him great treasure.

    Jesus is a lot like the treasure in the field. When you truly get a glimpse of Him, nothing else seems to matter. You will joyfully give up all the things that used to seem so important. The more that you give up for His sake, the more that He will give back in return.

    I am talking about the things that He is asking you to change in your life, and not what various religious traditions have told you. You can usually ignore those because you do not need to become a replica of someone else in order to please God. Just walk with Him and talk with Him each day of your life and He will bring the right changes to pass, at the right time.

    The Kingdom is free, yet in the end will cost you everything. If you do not let go of the things that hold you back, or that you hold more dear than God, then you cannot have the treasure hidden with in it. You have to buy the entire field and the price is great. Stay the course, stay committed, for there will be a great reward for those that do.

    Prayer: Father, I choose Your way, lead me into all that You have for me. Bring the changes to my life that need to be done. Help me to grow ever closer to You. Forgive me of the things that I have done wrong and fill me afresh with Your Holy Spirit, in the name of Jesus Christ I pray.

Amen another good message Pastor Dion. The most amazing thing about the Holy Spirit is that it works through us to bring all the necessary changes, all we have to do is fully give our lives over to God and Jesus. Complete surrender and then they will work in us through the Holy Spirit to refine us and bring about all the necessary changes that are needed to conform us more into His image. We cannot do this on our own, it is the Holy Spirit that brings this change. Amazing are His ways!

Thank you for highlighting this parable today, Pastor Dion. I'm beginning a spiritual growth study in my small church this week and God is definitely providing His word and guidance for the ideas that need to be shared. I ask for prayer for these sessions. Thank you, RHM family!

Pastor Dion, I don't know how, but it can only be GOD! The messages all week have been messages that I have needed to know, especially about temptation. The last two nights, The Holy Spirit in me has warned me of temptations that go against God's Will for me. So close last night; BUT---I listened, and here I am reading this devotion. Awesome confirmation for me now, that I did the right thing.

THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!!!!!!

AMEN! GOD IS SO GOOD TO ME
