Mrs. P's Haven of Refuge Devotional for today is:

Your TOUCH is a Blessing from the LORD

†              † 

                       
                Do you remember the story of King Midas and his golden touch? He made a wish that everything he touched would turn into gold, and his wish came to pass. He touched his food, the trees in his garden and his palace, and they all turned into gold! Then, he hugged his daughter whom he loved very much and she immediately turned into a gold statue!

               God’s way is better and it has no side effects. He wants to bless everything you touch. The Bible says, “The Lord will command the blessing on you…and in all to which you set your hand…" This means that whatever you touch, whatever you set your hands to, God will command the blessing upon it, be it a person, thing or business.

         So if you touch your child, he is blessed. If you touch your guitar, anointed music flows forth. If you touch your business, it prospers. When you touch a sick person, he gets healed. When you touch someone who is facing lack, his needs are met.

          In the Bible, everything that Jesus touched prospered. He touched the eyes of two blind men and their eyes were opened. (Matthew 9:28–30) He touched the open coffin of a widow’s son, and the young man sat up and began to speak. (Luke 7:12–15) He touched the leper and the leprosy departed. (Mark 1:40–42) Under the old covenant laws, no one was supposed to touch a leper as lepers were considered unclean.

              If you touched the unclean, you became unclean. But Jesus touched the leper and the unclean became clean!

        Everyone whom Jesus touched received a blessing. And because Jesus lives in you by His Spirit, what you touch will be blessed too. He paid the price for you to have this blessing. His loving hands which imparted blessings to so many were nailed to the cross so that today, God can command His blessing on all to which you set your hands!

   Deuteronomy 28:8
                                              “The Lord will command the blessing on you in your storehouses and in all to which you set your hand on, and He will bless you in the land which the Lord your God is giving you.

Mrs. P's Haven of Refuge Devotional for today is:

YOUR SINS WILL NOT BE SCREENED IN HEAVEN

†              †

                       
                When Pastor Joseph Prince was a young Christian growing up in Singapore, he read a little tract entitled This Was Your Life. In that tract, it said that when you get to heaven, God will replay your entire life, including all your sins, on a huge video screen for all the angels and other saints to watch!

            The idea that God was making such a video of anyone's life with the intention of screening it for everyone to watch could make you feel awful and condemned before God. How could anyone  ever stand boldly in His presence? And how could  anyone going to face their loved ones and Christian friends in heaven?

         You would be a nervous wreck, thinking about all of your sins that God was recording down, until you read this in the Bible:

 “Blessed is the man to whom the Lord shall not impute sin.”      

                                                   (Romans 4:8)


        Hallelujah! you would jump for joy when you found out that God was not counting your sins against you, and that He has given you something called “non-imputation of sins”!


     My friend, the reason that God does not impute any of our sins to us is that He has already imputed all of them to the body of His Son Jesus when He hung on the cross 2,000 years ago. Not only that, when God punished His Son for our sins, He caused the curse of the law to fall stroke by stroke upon Jesus’ entire body until every curse had been fully satisfied.

          That is why we have been redeemed from the curse of the law.

                                        (Galatians 3:13)

       That is why, instead of imputing sin to us, God imputes righteousness!

        God wants us to know that our sins and lawless deeds He will remember no more. The words “no more” in the original Greek text carry a strong double-negative meaning. In other words, God is saying, “No way, by no means, will I ever remember your sins again!”

            And since God says that He will remember your sins no more, why do you still remember them? Or for that matter, your spouse’s or neighbor’s sins? God does not want you to be conscious of sins because He is not. So rejoice! Come to Him boldly and expect Him to show you mercy and grace because He remembers your sins no more!

Hebrews 10:17
                                    then He adds, “Their sins and their lawless deeds I will remember no more.”

†Matthew 18:3-4†

And God said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven. . Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven.

Leave the Past behind you

†              † 

                       
                If Your feelings of being displaced are hard to shake, but as soon as you come into divine order and get in the flow of the Spirit of the Lord Jesus Christ, you will feel right at home, so refuse to allow lingering regrets and condemnation to plunge you into darkness.

     And as soon as you leave the past behind you and as you move forward and cling to the Spirit of our Savior, Jesus Christ,  you will see that you will OK and the Lord has you under his wing of PROTECTION,  AMEN.....

Mrs. P's Haven of Refuge Devotional for today is:

 Righteousness, Peace And Joy

†              † 

                       
                If we are supposed to seek first the kingdom of God every day, then we should know what the kingdom of God is in the first place, don't think that the kingdom of God was the mission fields and that to seek it meant doing missionary work.

           So to seek first God’s kingdom means to make it a priority every day to have your inner man flowing with righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit.

        Righteousness is not your own righteousness based on what you do. It is not good works. It is a gift from Jesus who is your righteousness,  God wants you to be established in the truth that you are the righteousness of God in Christ.

            “Peace be with you” were the words that Jesus spoke to His disciples when He appeared before them after His resurrection. He also showed them His pierced hands and side. God wants you to know that His Son’s finished work has given you peace. Your conscience can be at rest because your sin debt has been settled. You have peace with God and the peace of God.

           Joy will come into your heart when you see Jesus in the scriptures, worship songs or anointed preaching. It is the same joy from the Holy Spirit which filled the disciples’ hearts when they saw Jesus, His hands and His side.

        So every day, make it a priority to see yourself righteous in Christ. Don’t be conscious of your sins. Instead, be conscious of your righteousness. And whether you are reading your Bible or listening to anointed preaching, see Jesus with His pierced hands and side, which speak of His finished work. See all your sins forgiven, and you will flow with peace and joy. When you do this, you are seeking the kingdom of God!  AMEN

   Romans 14:17     
                            The kingdom of God is not eating and drinking, but righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit.

Mrs. P's Haven of Refuge Devotional for today is:

SEEK GOD’S KINGDOM AND HE WILL SOLVE YOUR PROBLEMS

†              † 

                       
                Are you troubled by many things today? For example, are you concerned about your rebellious teenager? Perhaps you see him as your problem, so you do your best to discipline him, only to end up with a heart full of worries and pain. And he is no better!

        God says to you, “Don’t focus on controlling your rebellious teenager. Instead, seek first My kingdom, which is righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit. Be conscious of the righteousness you have as a gift from My Son. Keep your inner man flowing with My peace and joy, and I will take care of your child.”

         We tend to think that the people around us are the problem. When we don’t get the promotion we want, we blame our bosses and colleagues. When we lose our temper, we blame our wives and kids. However, God wants us to stop looking outside and to start looking within because His kingdom is within us.

        The abundance of the kingdom of God is already inside you. As you seek first God’s kingdom, and follow His righteousness, peace and joy, the abundance within you will flow out and become a reality in your circumstances.

        You will find that God has not only taken care of what is troubling you, but has also added blessings to you, be it a promotion, well-behaved kids or a loving wife.

        You may say,  how do I keep my inner man flowing with righteousness, peace and joy?”

         Be conscious of your righteousness in Christ. Don’t be conscious of your sins and problems. Listen to anointed sermons that remind you of how righteous you are because of the perfect sacrifice of Christ. Peace and joy flow when you know that all your sins have been forgiven because of Jesus’ finished work.

      So the next time something troubles you, don’t focus on correcting the problem. Instead, seek first God’s kingdom and His righteousness. Make it a priority to have your inner man flowing with His peace and joy, and He will take care of that problem for you!  AMEN

   Romans 14:17
…the kingdom of God is not eating and drinking, but righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit.

Mrs. P's Haven of Refuge Devotional for today is:

REDEEMED FROM EVERY TYPE OF SICKNESS

†              † 


                       
                The One who cleansed lepers, opened blind eyes and made the lame to walk took your sins, sicknesses and every curse when He hung on Calvary’s tree. The curses that were meant for you because of your sins fell on Him instead. He was cursed in your place to redeem you from every curse that comes as a result of breaking God’s laws.

        What are these curses? They are listed in Deuteronomy 28. It is a long and detailed list. Don’t get frightened when you read the curses, but rejoice because Christ has redeemed you from every single one of them, including those curses of sicknesses!

        Are you stricken with tuberculosis, fever or inflammation? (Deuteronomy 28:22) Christ has redeemed you from every one of these conditions!

       Do you have painful boils, tumors or an itch which doctors say cannot be healed? (Deuteronomy 28:27) Christ has redeemed you from every one of these conditions!

     Perhaps yours is a serious and prolonged sickness. (Deuteronomy 28:59) It doesn’t matter. Christ has redeemed you from every prolonged sickness!

        You may say, but what about my disease? It is not covered in Deuteronomy 28. Did Jesus forget my disease?” No, His work is perfect! Look at Deuteronomy 28:61: “Also every sickness and every plague, which is not written in this Book of the Law, will the Lord bring upon you until you are destroyed.” That covers everything.

         So if Christ has redeemed you from this curse, then He has redeemed you from every type of sickness! I don’t care what new type of sickness the world discovers because Christ has redeemed us from every type of sickness!

         Now, if you have a particular sickness, say, “This (name the sickness) is part of the curse of the law. But Galatians 3:13 says that Christ has redeemed me from the curse of the law. Therefore, I have been redeemed from (name the sickness)!” Believe and confess that every day, and as surely as Jesus took every curse of sickness, your healing will break forth!

   Galatians 3:13
                                   Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law, having become a curse for us (for it is written, “Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree”),

Mrs. P's Haven of Refuge Devotional for today is:

GOD WANTS YOU FREE FROM WORRIES

† †

Is your heart full of worries about your health, finances, family or future? Even when all is well, some people still worry because they have heard others say, “You should worry when everything is peaceful because something is wrong when the devil leaves you alone.” So they worry even when there is nothing to worry about!

But Jesus does not want you to worry about what you will eat or drink, or about your body and what you will put on your back. He tells you not to worry about your daily provisions because God, who is your heavenly Father, knows that you need all these things and He wants to add these things to you.

God is the same God who took care of the children of Israel in the wilderness, feeding them with manna every day for 40 years Under His care, His people had no lack. When the people wanted meat for dinner, He simply rained quails on them.

The children of Israel only had to pick them up. If they had gone to look for meat themselves, they probably would not have found any in the desert.

The problem with us today is that we think that we must do something to help ourselves. Some of us may even think that it is easy for Jesus to say, “Don’t worry. Take no thought for your life,” because He does not understand the problems we face in life.

But the truth is that Jesus understands the problems we face in life. In fact, He faced what I would call the “final problem”—death.

Death is the “final problem” because it puts an end to all our other problems. Jesus faced death at the cross, conquered it and rose from the dead. And because He conquered the problem of problems, we can trust Him when He tells us not to worry.

Matthew 6:25
“Therefore I say to you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink; nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food and the body more than clothing?

Mrs. P's Haven of Refuge Devotional for today is:                        

GOD WANTS TO SET YOU UP FOR A BLESSING

†              †
                  
              
        Have you ever wondered why, in some Bible stories, God asked the people to give what little they had to Him? It may appear cruel, but the truth is that God was setting them up for a blessing! God’s way is to use whatever we have, and multiply it back to us once we put it in His hands.

           The widow of Zarephath had only a handful of flour and a little oil to make one last meal for her son and herself before they faced starvation. But she trusted God and used a portion of the little that she had to make a cake for the prophet Elijah. And God rewarded her by making sure that her bin of flour was not used up and her jar of oil did not run dry until the drought ended.

       Similarly, the boy who gave his little lunch of five loaves and two small fish to Jesus not only ate well, but he also saw it being used to feed more than 5,000 people with 12 baskets full of leftovers! 
 
               Whenever we give what little we have to God, whether it is money, time or energy, it opens up our hearts so that God can fill us up with more. And when we give our lives to God, we can trust Him to make things right for us and to be the rewarder of our faith.

            When Ruth, a childless Moabite widow, left the comfort of her home to follow her mother-in-law Naomi and the God of Israel back to a foreign land, she was given a full reward by the Lord. God gave Ruth protection and ensured that she was well-provided for through Boaz, a wealthy relative who took on the role of kinsman-redeemer for her and Naomi.
                                                                
        So as you trust God with what you have today, know that He loves you and is setting you up for more blessings. So expect to see even more of His provision and abundance in the days to come!  AMEN..

   Ruth 2:12
                      The Lord repay your work, and a full reward be given you by the Lord God of Israel, under whose wings you have come for refuge.”

                      Imagine yourself walking past the prodigal son sitting in the pigpen , you look at him and see him salivating for the pigs’ food. Believing that it is good to show kindness, you give him money to buy food for himself.

    That is human kindness which says, “I am a Christian. I should be kind, good and forgiving.” Such human sweetness or kindness may be likened to honey. Interestingly, while we elevate it, God tells His people not to bring Him a grain offering with honey in it.

             The grain offering speaks of Jesus’ life on earth. Not mixing honey in the grain offering speaks of how the compassion and goodness we see in Jesus during His earthly ministry were all divine. There was no “honey” of human goodness, which is inevitably tainted with human weakness.

                 In retrospect, the worst thing one could do for the prodigal son was to give him money when he was in the pigpen. Not only would he not have gone home, but what the Lord was doing in his heart would also have been spoiled. This is what happens when we go by the goodness of our human hearts instead of the goodness of God in our hearts, which is directed by His love, wisdom and perfect timing.

         God does not want you to be moved by what you see but by His Spirit. There were many needy folks surrounding Jesus during His time on earth. But He did not heal every sick person around Him, feed every hungry stomach he passed or raise all who were dead.

                                      Isaiah 11:2–3   t ells us that the Lord was not moved by what He saw or heard. He was moved only by the Spirit.

         You too have the Spirit in you (see 1 Corinthians 3:16). Be moved by Him. Follow the peace that He puts within your spirit to do or refrain from doing something. That peace is the peace of God. Acting on that peace will cause God to be exalted, and His divine goodness and kindness to really be a blessing to you and others!  AMEN

    Leviticus 2:11     No grain offering which you bring to the Lord shall be made with leaven, for you shall burn no leaven nor any honey in any offering to the Lord made by fire.

Mrs. P's Haven of Refuge Devotional for today is:

Righteousness Is Not Right Doing But Right Being 

†              † 

                       
                What do you think righteousness is about? Something you do or something you are? Right doing or right being? The Bible tells us that after Jesus’ sacrifice at the cross, God imputes righteousness not to those who strive to obey the law, but to anyone who believes in His Son. Because Christ took our sins and gave us His righteousness, the moment we believe in Him, God treats us as righteous apart from our works or obedience, This is new covenant righteousness a righteousness that comes by faith and not works.

           You are not righteous because of how morally upright you are. You are not righteous because you exercise self-control. You are not righteous because you read 10 chapters of the Bible daily. You are not righteous because you feel righteous. But you are the very righteousness of God in Christ solely because the sacrifice of Jesus made you so. When you believe this, your faith is accounted for righteousness.

       And this is what God wants you to use your faith for. If you are righteous by your deeds, you don’t need faith. You also don’t need faith to know that you are sinful. But you need faith to believe and declare that you are the righteousness of God in Christ, in the midst of your struggles with temptation and sin.

          For example, when you feel lousy because you have just shouted at someone or family member, God wants you to exercise your faith to see yourself as still righteous in the midst of that failure. This living revelation that you are still righteous will give you the strength to love your family members and reconcile things with them.

       The devil may remind you of your foul temper and question your integrity: “How dare you call yourself righteous when you just did that!” Just ignore his lies and boldly declare, “I am not righteous because of what I have done or not done. I am righteous only because of the blood and finished work of Jesus at the cross!”  AMEN...

Romans 4:5
                            But to him who does not work but believes on Him who justifies the ungodly, his faith is accounted for righteousness,

Jesus Delights In You Drawing From Him

†              † 

                       
                When people make demands on you or keep depending on you, you may end up stressed, tired and irritable. But this is not the case with Jesus. When people draw from Him, He is strengthened and refreshed!

           Jesus is, after all, God. And you honor God when you take your place as man and let God be God by drawing from Him. The One who said, even as the Son of Man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give His life as a ransom for many.”

       The Bible tells us that when Jesus arrived at Sychar, He was wearied from the journey and rested at a well. A sinful Samaritan woman then came to the well to draw water. Jesus ministered to her and she left rejoicing with the promise of living water. The disciples, having returned with food for Jesus, found Him already strengthened and refreshed.

         When they wondered who had given Him food while they were away, He told them, “I have food to eat of which you do not know.

         Today, when you draw from Jesus and let Him minister to you, it is “food” for Him that “refreshes” and “strengthens” Him.

             But it takes humility for us to allow Jesus to minister to us. We take pride in doing things for the Lord. We want to build our businesses, families and ministries for Him. All that is good, but without Jesus, we are spiritually bankrupt! We really have nothing to give to the Lord and His work.

       What we need to do first is to receive from Him because when we freely receive from Him, we are able to freely give.

      So rmember, Jesus wants to minister to you. Don’t try to minister to yourself. That is pride and self-righteousness. The Pharisees of Jesus’ day, who felt that they did not need Him and that they could provide for themselves, were the ones who could not receive from Him.

      So bring to Him your needs and say, “Lord, I need to draw from You. I present my needs to You. Minister to me and meet my needs. I cannot, but You can. Thank you, Lord.”

John 4:32
                   But He said to them, “I have food to eat of which you do not know.”

GOD IS A GIVER, NOT A TAKER

†              † 

                       
                Some Christians mistakenly believe that God gives and also takes away. At funerals, we sometimes hear the minister say, “The Lord giveth, and the Lord taketh. Blessed be the name of the Lord.”
 
               As children of God, we know what the Father’s will is for us. He is a giver, not a taker! Jesus said, “Do not fear, little flock, for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom.”

     It is the devil who is the thief. He comes to steal, kill and destroy. But Jesus came to give us life more abundant.

        Jesus met every need and healed every sickness brought before Him, and at the cross, He gave His own life. Never once did He take anything away from the people who came to Him. And the Bible says that whoever has seen Jesus has seen the Father. 
       
        Our heavenly Father wants you to know today that He is the one who gives you all good things. And if He has already given us heaven’s best, and that is Jesus, “how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things, AMEN....

Romans 8:32
                              He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things?

WHAT DO YOU SEE

†              † 

                       
                A blind lady was led to a great healing evangelist for prayer. After he had prayed for her, he asked her, “Now, tell me what you see.” She opened her eyes only to be told, “Close your eyes. Tell me what you see.” She opened her eyes again only to be told, “I didn’t say to open your eyes. I asked you what you saw. Close your eyes! Now, tell me what you see.”

   This went on for a while, until the lady realized that the evangelist was asking her what she saw on the inside.

       Did she see herself seeing? When she understood that, she said, “I see myself with sight.” Then, the evangelist told her, “Now, slowly open your eyes.” That moment, she opened her eyes to perfect vision!

         When you prayed just now, what did you see inside you? Were you praying for someone’s healing, but seeing that person in a coffin? Were you praying for a financial breakthrough, but seeing the banks pursuing you till you were bankrupt?

          You see, you don’t get what you pray for. You get what you believe you receive when you pray. Jesus said, “Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them.”

                 “Whatever things” covers your every need. And believing that you receive them comes before having them. Jesus once told a centurion, “Go your way; and as you have believed, so let it be done for you.” The centurion’s servant was healed that same hour. (Matthew 8:13) The centurion believed that he received his miracle even before he saw it in the natural.
So when you pray, what do you really believe and see on the inside?

                        “ What if I can't really can’t see it.”

        Then don’t pray yet. Change your vision on the inside first. Start seeing yourself with the answer. See yourself healed. See yourself living in the bigger house that you need. See yourself enjoying more than enough. When you can see it and believe it, then pray in faith, and you will have whatever you ask for! 

Mark 11:24
                             Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them.

Around the Clock Protection

†              † 

                       
               

                    During World War II, German planes bombed London. Houses were leveled. But there was one that remained standing amidst the rubble. Its owner said that when she read Psalm 121:4, which says, “Behold, He who keeps Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep,” she told the Lord, “Lord, since You don’t sleep, then there is no point in both of us keeping awake. I will sleep while You keep watch.” And she did, while the Lord protected her and her house.

In 2005, terrorists attacked London’s public transport system. That day, a Singaporean girl found herself unexpectedly late for work and could not get to the train station in time to board her usual train. When she finally neared the station, she realized that it had been bombed just a few minutes earlier. Her mother, who worships in our church, believes that God protected her daughter that day.

       God wants you to know that you have round-the-clock protection “You shall not be afraid of the terror by night, nor of the arrow that flies by day, nor of the pestilence that walks in darkness, nor of the destruction that lays waste at noonday.”

      He protects you from “the terror by night,” which could refer to evils such as rape, kidnap or murder. He promises you protection from “the arrow that flies by day.” This could refer to bullets from a crazy sniper, drive-by shootings or home-made rockets fired into your territory.
            
God also shields you from “the pestilence that walks in darkness,” referring to viruses which you cannot see. You don’t have to be afraid of deadly viruses lurking somewhere or wonder if some deadly disease is developing in your body.

          God also doesn’t want you to be afraid of “the destruction that lays waste at noonday,” such as a tsunami hitting the beach resort you are at, or a bomb going off in the shopping mall you are in.

         You need not be afraid because God, who neither slumbers nor sleeps, is watching over you 24 hours a day!

   Psalm 91:5–6
                                 You shall not be afraid of the terror by night, nor of the arrow that flies by day, nor of the pestilence that walks in darkness, nor of the destruction that lays waste at noonday.

Mrs. P's Haven of Refuge Devotional for today is:

ASK IN JESUS’ NAME AND RECEIVE

†              † 

                       
                Do you always end your prayers with “in Jesus’ name”? Maybe your Sunday school teacher taught you to do this, or maybe you have heard church leaders and other believers utter it at the end of their prayers.

                                 I used to say “in Jesus’ name” very quickly as if those were magic words that would get my prayers answered. Then, one day, I heard the Lord asking me why I was doing that, the Lord wanted me to realize that whenever I pray and say “in Jesus’ name”, I am putting my entire faith for my prayer to be answered not in who I am or what I have done, but in the person and name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, and what He has done at the cross!

        Whenever we ask God for anything in Jesus’ name, Jesus says to us, “Most assuredly, I say to you, whatever you ask the Father in My name, He will give you.” This means that in your prayer for healing, when you say “in Jesus’ name”, healing comes over your sick body because it is by His stripes that you are healed.

           In your prayer for protection, when you say “in Jesus’ name”, you are kept safe because the blood of Jesus protects and delivers you from evil.

           And the good name of your family cannot save you. Your pastor’s name cannot save you. Even the name of the latest medical breakthrough cannot save you. Only one name under heaven can save you Jesus! And the good news is that His name in Hebrew, Yeshua, means salvation healing, 
preservation, wholeness, wellness, provision, safety and deliverance for you and your family!

     So,, whenever you pray,  slow down at the end of my prayer and say, “Father, I ask all this not based on what I have or have not done, but based on Jesus and His finished work at the cross. I ask all this in Jesus’ name. Amen!”

   John 16:23
                          Most assuredly, I say to you, whatever you ask the Father in My name He will give you.

PEACE

                There are things that will demand your attention and things that need to be adjusted to function better in a spiritual manner. 

               Your test is to determine whether or not you will get frustrated with the process, which will make things worse if you get fustrated, so the ting to do is to TRUST in the LORD's inspiration to give the wisdom that  you need to establish the necessary order. 

        You must take the time required to accomplish what is set before you as a necessary step to be taken before you can proceed, says the Lord.

   John 14:27 
                      Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.

             The Lord is about to bring you higher than ever you have been before.  Come to Me say's the LORD, , and walk with him, and  In the days ahead, you will realize what a great treasure is given to you at this time. 

        Follow the LORD now on a journey, you and the LORD together; a journey of joy in which you will experience the power of the kingdom of God; a journey in which your righteousness will be elevated and thus the power of it shall flow out before you; a journey in which you will have victory over all the works of the enemy..

        Also, Pay attention and be aware,  because the LORD is releasing new insights into your spiritual progression so that you can see more completely how to cooperate with the work that GOD is doing in your life. 

     This may not be an easy journey, but it will be fruitful if you stay on course and ake every step in faith that the LORD is always with you and completing the good works.  AMEN

Philippians 1:6 
                             being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ.

Mrs. P's Haven of Refuge Devotional for today is:

HOPE THAT DOES NOT DISAPPOINT

†              † 

                       
                Today, we express hope as if we can’t be sure what will really happen. We say, “I hope I will win that prize. I hope it won’t rain tomorrow. I hope everything works out well.”But “hope” in the Bible is a confident and positive expectation of good.

        God wants you to have a confident expectation of good because as His child, He favors you. Because Christ is in you, the hope of glory (Colossians1:27), you can expect the glory of God to shine into every area of your life, including your family, job, ministry, health and finances!

         God’s Word says, “Now hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit who was given to us.” You may have experienced disappointed hopes, but there is a hope that does not disappoint when you are conscious of how much God loves you. It is a hope that springs from the heart of God, who loves you very much.

         It is interesting that the first mention of the Holy Spirit in the book of Romans is tied up with the love of God. The book of Romans is considered foundational for Christians. Could it be that the first thing the Holy Spirit wants to do is to establish in our hearts that God loves us? Many people think that the Holy Spirit has come to teach us about power. But the truth is that the Holy Spirit has come not to reveal the love for power, but the power of love!

         You may have just lost your job. But if you can say, “Jesus loves me this I know,” you can also say, “I believe that I will get a better job tomorrow.” Your girlfriend may have just left you for your best friend. But because you can say, “Jesus loves me this I know,” you can also say, “I’ll meet a better girl.”

        When you believe that God loves you, you will have a positive expectation of good. You will have a hope that does not disappoint. So be careful what you hope for because you are bound to get it!

Romans 5:5
                               Now hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit who was given to us.

Mrs. P's Haven of Refuge Devotional for today is:


God Makes All Things Work Together For the Good for Us

†              †

                       
          Romans 8:28
                                 And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose. 

                 In the verse, “all things” is literally all things the good, the bad and the ugly! Now, it does not mean that all things are from God. Some things, such as accidents, sicknesses, broken relationships and divorces are not from Him. They are from the devil or just part of the fallen world that we live in. But what this verse does tell us is that “all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose”. That is our inheritance as God’s beloved children.

       Do the people of the world have this inheritance? No. When bad things happen to them, they are what they are bad things. But when bad things happen to the children of God, it does not end there. God can make those bad things work together for good. In other words, the devil may throw lemons at you, but God can take those lemons and make refreshing lemonade for you!
 
       It is important you remember that God is not behind anything bad or ugly. But when those things happen, know that He can make all things work together for good. And don’t let anyone tell you that all things will work together for good only if you love God and are called according to His purpose. 
       These two things are not conditions but descriptions of believers. Believers are those who love God because they know that God first loved them. (1 John 4:19) And they are called according to His purpose for they have been born again and belong to Him.

         And because you have been born again, all things in your life will work together for good. This is your inheritance as a beloved child of God!  AMEN..

tHE GIFT OF NO CONDEMNATION

†              †

                       
                When Jesus was on earth, a woman caught in the act of adultery was brought before Him by the scribes and Pharisees, the religious mafia of His day.

              They tried to trap Him by posing a question that was difficult to answer: “Now Moses, in the law, commanded us that such should be stoned. But what do You say?”

            Jesus answered, “He who is without sin among you, let him throw a stone at her first.” The scribes and Pharisees began to leave one by one till none of them were left.

         The people in the crowd who wanted to condemn the woman could not. But Jesus, the only one in the crowd who truly had the power to condemn her, would not. He then asked her, “Woman…Has no one condemned you?

         He spoke such words of grace to her because He loved her. Also, by asking her the question, He was giving her a chance to speak words of no condemnation to herself—“No one [condemns me], Lord.

       Jesus not only spoke words of grace to her, He also gave her the gift of no condemnation “Neither do I condemn you; go and sin no more”. It was when she received the gift of no condemnation that she had the power to “go and sin no more”.

        Today, you have the gift of no condemnation because the Son of God was condemned for all your sins.  Today, God cannot condemn you when you sin because He is faithful and just to what His Son has done.

        So if the devil tries to convince you that God is angry with you when you blow it, just say, “God does not condemn me today because He has already condemned Jesus at the cross 2,000 years ago!”

       Unfortunately, we still hear people saying, “Go and sin no more first, then I won’t condemn you.” Maybe you have been saying this to yourself too. But God says, “I don’t condemn you. Go and sin no more.” He gives you the gift of no condemnation, so that you have the strength to go and sin no more!  AMEN...

John 8:11  
                      “Neither do I condemn you; go and sin no more.”

Mrs. P's Haven of Refuge Devotional for today is:

God Is With You Upholding You

†              † 

                       
                It is easy to say, “Praise the Lord! Hallelujah!” when times are good. It is easy to believe that God loves you when you are on the mountain top enjoying the sunshine. But what happens when you are down in the dark valley surrounded by your enemies?

          Perhaps today, you are in the valley of marital, financial or bodily trouble, and you are asking, “Where is God?” He is right there with you. The God of the valleys says to you, “Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.”

        When King Jehoshaphat was surrounded and outnumbered by his enemies, the Spirit of the Lord came upon Jahaziel and he said to the king, “Don’t be afraid nor dismayed because of this great multitude, for the battle is not yours, but God’s. You will not need to fight in this battle. Position yourselves, stand still and see the salvation of the Lord, who is with you. Don’t fear or be dismayed.  Tomorrow, go out against them for the Lord is with you.

        What King Jehoshaphat did next was brilliant. He acted with wisdom from on high. Instead of putting his commandos in front, he put worshipers in front! What did the worshipers sing? They sang of God’s love for them  “Praise the Lord for His love endures forever!” And God utterly destroyed their enemies!

            It is not the trials that make us strong, but our responses in those trials. The devil wants us to respond by asking, “Where is God?” But God wants us to respond with faith in His love for us. We are more than conquerors not because of our love for Him, but through Him who loves us.

     So whatever valley you are in today, don’t be afraid. God is there with you strengthening and upholding you. Just sing of His love for you and let Him fight your battles for you!

  Isaiah 41:10
                          Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.’
