    The God who made the world and all things in it, he, being Lord of heaven and earth, doesn't dwell in temples made with hands, neither is he served by men's hands, as though he needed anything, seeing he himself gives to all life and breath, and all things. Acts 17:24 WEBWhen I was growing up, we us...

    RHM Devotional: Heroes and Monsters from Refreshing Hope Ministries on Vimeo. Today I want to talk about the potential of being a Hero, or a Monster, that exists inside each one of us. We get to choose. Once when Jesus was preaching from a boat, He told a parable about a man that sowed wheat in H...

There is so much that could be said about this, but today we cover 'The Gospel.' The word Gospel means 'glad tidings, good...

When He is Near

  • Seek Yahweh while he may be found. Call on him while he is near. Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts. Let him return to Yahweh, and he will have mercy on him, to our God, for he will freely pardon. Isaiah 55:6 WEB

    I enjoy playing music, computers, gaming and I generally have my quiet time with the Lord each morning. However for a couple of months, I was called to pray every day at about 3 PM. It became a driving desire and the most important thing in my life.

    Rather than doing the usual things that I would normally do, each day I would go into my room, close the door and pray from one to two-and-a-half hours. It was not your normal praying either. I laid on the floor with my face on the carpet in tears and the Lord's presence would cover me like a blanket. There was such a sweet fellowship that it was all that I wanted to do. Eventually it lifted, life returned to normal, and my morning time was again fine.

    The Lord is always with us, but there are special times when He wants you to come aside and spend some quality time with Him. These are times when He draws near to you, calls you to break from the daily routine and to pay Him attention.

    It was a very rewarding experience, yet it preceded a dark time in my life where my faith was strained to the breaking point. I am not sure what I would have done if I had not spent the time in prayer leading up to it, and when I came out of the test, He put me into ministry. If you feel the Lord tugging on your heart and prompting you to come aside for a while, don't neglect Him. It is for your own good.

    Prayer: Father, I thank You, please have Your way in my life. Lead me and I will follow. Call me and I will come. I want more of You in my life today, in the name of Jesus Christ I pray.

I also have had seasons of my life when God was prepairing me for something very big. I pray that I always reconize that it is God working in me for His glory. It is not about me, but God using me for His will.

Sometimes He just calls me pray for someone. So i pray right away. I don't always find out why, but when I do, it is often to prevent something or intervene somehow in someone's life. It is never for nought, it is always for a reason.
