  • Little Town of Bethlehem

    Little Town of Bethlehem from Refreshing Hope Ministries on Vimeo. What would it be like to live in the perfect will of God?

    Let no man say when he is tempted, "I am tempted by God," for God can't be tempted by evil, and he himself tempts no one.

    Then the devil took him into the holy city. He set him on the pinnacle of the temple, and said to him, "If you are the Son of God, throw yourself down, for it is written, 'He will command his angels concerning you,' and, 'On their hands they will bear you up, so that you don't dash your foot against...

  • Your Will Be Done

    Your Will Be Done from Refreshing Hope Ministries on Vimeo. Too many times when we pray, we give God Almighty instructions as if He works for us. It's something I had to learn to stop doing.

    In the same hour, the fingers of a man's hand came out and wrote near the lamp stand on the plaster of the wall of the king's palace. The king saw the part of the hand that wrote. Then the king's face was changed in him, and his thoughts troubled him; and the joints of his thighs were loosened, and ...
