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...

Signs That Make You Wonder

  • While God also bore witness by signs and wonders and various miracles and by gifts of the Holy Spirit distributed according to His will. Heb. 2:4 ESV

    Once while in a band, I was witnessing to several people who were outside at a party. It was dark outside, I really felt the presence of the Holy Spirit show up, so I just went with it. Before long a few of the people started yelling, shouting and moving around. I was so caught up in the Spirit that I thought the Lord was touching them all as well. But in reality, we were all standing in a huge fire ant bed, and they were all being bitten. In my mind, I had seen that going differently.

    I looked down and saw that my white pants were covered in fire ants up to my knees. For some reason I had complete peace about it, which I remember seeming unnatural at the time. I just reached down and gently brushed them all off my legs. I did not get bitten a single time that night, though I have been many times both before and after this.

    One of the men that were present gave his life to the Lord shortly after. I cannot explain it, but sometimes the Lord does signs that does surely make one wonder.

    Prayer: Father, make Your presence real in my life. Protect me from harm and use me to lead others to You, in the name of Jesus.

    Note: Good morning! The highlighted group of the week is Healthful Living, a group is for those who would like to support each other in building good habits for healthful living, not only physically, but also mentally and spiritually! The group is a safe place to talk about issues that challenge us, to share what we have learned, to encourage each other when we fall and to celebrate our victories! ALSO, the Creation Photographers theme of the week is "Unexpected Guests", based on Hebrews 13:2, "Do not neglect to show kindness to strangers; for, in this way, some, without knowing it, have had angels as their guests.". As always you are free to share as God calls you to!

Jeremiah 29:11. My daily hope and comfort. Future plans are good, but one day at a time. Our Father's promises are true and He is faithful. Your calm in the midst of trouble is the super lesson this morning. Thank-you and blessings on you and Sylvia.

Amen!! Thank you Pastor Dion for your daily devotion for all of RHM. :-) Those fire ant's can be a real ball of fire. I've had them attack me when I was younger living in Florida. I was laying out and fell alseep it was in the driveway at my older sister's house. I woke up because I felt the burning I got bit but it was not as bad as it could have been. Amen. <3
