    Good Neighbors from Refreshing Hope Ministries on Vimeo. Today I want to talk about the importance of being a good neighbor. Ever since Adam and Eve had kids and one killed the other, it has been an ongoing thing, learning to live with one another. Most of the ten commandments are about how we tr...

    When I kept silence, my bones wasted away through my groaning all day long. For day and night your hand was heavy on me. My strength was sapped in the heat of summer. Selah. I acknowledged my sin to you. I didn't hide my iniquity. I said, I will confess my transgressions to Yahweh, and you forgave t...

They saw him afar off, and before he came near to them, they conspired against him to kill him. They said to one another, 'Behold, this dreamer comes. Come now ...

"It’s Just a Temporary Inconvenience!"

  • What you are going through won't last forever. This storm will pass! You may be crying now, but you will be smiling in just a little while. Just like when your internet gets interrupted and has technical difficulties, you too are going through a temporary inconvenience. Life is full of them! The wilderness was never supposed to be fun, it wasn’t supposed to be comfortable. Don't let yourself adjust to a wilderness mentality because you are transitioning from this wilderness of just enough to the promised land of more than enough. You are not getting stuck here!

    For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory. (2 Corinthians 4:17)

    You are in your midnight hour and it is a critical moment right now because that is when it can go either way. Paul and Silas with backs beaten, humiliated, thrown into the most filthy darkest part of the prison, at midnight, prayed and sang praises unto God. God shook the jail house off its foundation, opened every door, and set every prisoner free. Brought salvation to the jailer and all his house. ( All because they chose to praise God in their midnight hour).The good news today is: God still works the night shift. He does his best work in the dark. The good thing I like about Midnight is: (It’s gone in 60 seconds). In 60 seconds, you can go from pain to praise, from sick to well, from dark to light, from weeping to rejoicing, from broke, busted, and disgusted to divine overflow.It does not take long for God to bless you.

    All things work together for the good to those that love God. Your prayers are gonna carry some weight when you speak the name of Jesus, it’s going to carry some weight, When you open your mouth and start praising God, it’s going to carry some weight. You need to let the devil know you are not a featherweight anymore and your punches are power packed. We look (not ) at the things which are seen. Why? Because you are observing something else. The giants in front of you are blocked by the angels around you. You get your eyes so full of the Word of God. You can’t see that sickness anymore (All you can see is, by his stripes ye were healed). You can’t see that financial problem anymore, All you can see is) Your God shall supply all your need. You can’t see the struggles through your wilderness of just enough anymore, (All you can see is) Your God is able to do exceeding and abundantly above all that you can ask or think according to His power.

    You are experiencing some technical difficulties right now, a little (Temporary inconvenience) but it will be over in a minute and you can make it. You will get a snapshot of the glory you are about to enter into once you do. The things which are seen are Temporal which means subject to change! So get ready for Change! Start talking about where you are going instead of where you have been. Start talking about what you are expecting instead of what you are experiencing. You can make it through the temporary inconveniences as long as you can see the eternal. As long as you keep your eyes fixed on God and his Word, You can make it.

    I don’t know what you may be going through today, but I stopped by to tell you this, "It’s Just a Temporary Inconvenience!"
