    Walking on Water from Refreshing Hope Ministries on Vimeo. Today I want to talk about the importance of believing the Lord, of shaking off the naysayers and continuing on your own journey. People have a tendency to not want you to go where they have not been. Leaders cannot lead you, where they h...

    Out of that terrible travail of soul, he'll see that it's worth it and be glad he did it. Through what he experienced, my righteous one, my servant, will make many 'righteous ones,' as he himself carries the burden of their sins. Therefore I'll reward him extravagantly' the best of everything, the ...

    But Ruth said, Do not urge me to leave you or to return from following you. For where you go I will go, and where you lodge I will lodge. Your people shall be my people, and your God my God. Where you die I will die, and there will I be buried. Ruth 1:16 ESVRuth walked along the road thinking about ...

Friends ...

  • Do you understand something of what God requires of you? Has He spoken to your heart and mind and revealed something of His Plan? Does His Word 'inspire you'? Do you have moments of great joy and great sorrow BECAUSE of your relationship to God?

     

    If you can answer 'Yes' to any of these questions ... You ARE a Friend of God. And God IS Your Friend.

    I can not imagine a greater prize in life that can be attained ... then to win such an honor as this. Surely ... Nothing can Compare!

    You may be the possessor of few 'things' here ... and be far richer than the richest in all of Mankind ... IF ... You are the Friend of God.

    Though we DO 'serve' Him we do so because He has so graciously 'befriended' us. I can't say anything on your behalf ... but speaking on my own ... I do NOT deserve this great honor. At the very same time ... I will not withdraw from His Grace or Mercy, which is afforded freely towards me.

    I must confess ... Not by any works which I have done ... that I am His Friend and He is mine ... I am content in this one sure thing.

    There is a tremendous difference between being Drawn to God and being Driven to God.

    People don't mind being 'drawn' which can be a slow process and somewhat easy. But no one chooses to be Driven TO God. And yet ... this latter Path oftentimes is the very best Path.

    IF God is drawing You TO Him (or BACK to Him) ... and in doing so ... IF He is using things you do not honestly appreciate ... Count yourself fortunate. He only sends Heaven's Hounds to seek and save that which He fully loves!

     

    Let Go and Let God!

    OH, But God.......The "I AM" walked with Adam and called him a friend. He walks with us and calls us friend...John 15:15 Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you. KJV.
