    Thank You from Refreshing Hope Ministries on Vimeo. Today I want to talk about the importance of being thankful. Jesus lived on Earth as our example, and He was so thankful and full of praise. No matter what you have been through, there are still some things that you can be thankful about. An imp...

    I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with my loving eye on you. Psalms 32:8 NIVRecently when the Lord was ready to start something new in our life, He started closing out the old. Of course we panicked, tried giving more, praying more, fasting more, serving ...

    Out of the same mouth comes blessing and cursing. My brothers, these things ought not to be so. Does a spring send out from the same opening fresh and bitter water? Can a fig tree, my brothers, yield olives, or a vine figs? Thus no spring yields both salt water and fresh water. James 3:10 WEBHot, ti...

In God I Trust

  • When I am afraid, I will put my trust in you. In God, I praise his word. In God, I put my trust. I will not be afraid. What can flesh do to me? Psalms 56:3 WEB

    Tired and needing a rest, David had been on the run from Saul. His own father-in-law was seeking to kill him out of pure jealousy. Everything that David owned, he had to leave behind him. Now he was seeking refuge in Gath, a Philistine city whom Israel had been at war with for years. David felt that the whole world was against him, and while living here in the midst of enemies that wanted to kill him only slightly less, he wrote this Psalm.

    David went on to be king and lived a very prosperous life after this season, so my point is this: do not give up in the middle of the fight. You never meet anyone truly great that does not have a story. Stay positive, keep on praying, believing, hoping and God will bring you through the bad times. The end can be better than the beginning (Eccl. 7:8). Trials are confined to a limited season. They don't last forever.

    When the whole world turns against you and you are afraid, God is more than enough. When you place your trust in Him you cannot go wrong. The problems may loom over you like a dark cloud, but He can bring the sunshine again. When your job ends, He can bring you a better one. When they no longer want you around, He will bring you to a place where you belong and surround with those that do. He who trusts in God will not be moved. In God I trust.

    Prayer: Father, I put my trust in You. I will remain steadfast and not bow to fear with You by my side. I know that You are there to catch me if I fall. Fulfill Your perfect will in my life and lead me into all that You have for me, in the name of Jesus Christ I pray.

I do believe that God keeps working in my life no matter what my circumstances are, and that He wants me to respond in a godly way.

This message was for me today!!  Thank you Lord for speaking to me as you know I have some struggles that I truly feel is at times very overwhelming; but you keep me steady and when I tend to veer off the path, you gently push me back and I know that is a sign that you will always be with me.  Thank you for the many blessings you give me every day and for the gift of your son Jesus as my Savior.  May this day be filled with blessings for everyone!  Amen!!

Thank you for another wonderful devotion. I have learned that when all seems lost, to leave it at the Cross. Then I begin to thank God for the answered prayer before it is answered. The more I praise Him the better I feel.

A perfect start to an uncertain day.  So good to know I'm never alone and that He knows where and what will happen.  Tho' it may not be what I'm hoping for, I will try very hard to remember He is in charge.  I know He loves me and will not give me more than I can handle.  Thank you for the message, Pastor Dion.

Proverbs 3:5-6

Trust the LORD GOD with all your heart and do not lean on your own understanding.  In all your ways and circumstances, acknowledge GOD and HE will make your path straight.
