Grace to you and peace from God our Father and our Lord Jesus Christ. I trust this note finds you on top with all things under your feet.

During this week reflect on the great potential the Lord has placed inside of us. When we are alone, we have a chance to reimagine, remember and rehearse where we came from, what we can do and why we are here.

MSG Psalm 139:15 You know me inside and out, you know every bone in my body; You know exactly how I was made, bit by bit, how I was sculpted from nothing into something.

Our purpose is the original intent, of the creator, before He made us. What did the creator have in mind before He made you? You are created and given life by divine design. Every detail, of your divine design, was well thought out. Every component of your being, spiritual and natural, were built in you with purpose. Your purpose helped shape your design. Your creator, by divine design, placed every system in you to fulfill your purpose.

Your purpose is tied to what you love and what you hate. Leon Forté

What you love, you are born to protect. You are created to nourish, cherish and admonish what you love, to preserve the creation. Your presence in the earth is an indication your purpose is needed now. Love always desires to direct, correct and protect the beloved. Love, manifested as protection, gives the creation longevity. Love is always seeking someone’s highest good, all the time. What you love, you protect.

What you hate, you are born to fix. Hate is a strange emotion because hate without purpose can lead to fatalities in the community. Hate can be a powerful motivation. When you hate a dirty kitchen, you clean it. When you hate an unkept yard, you cut it. When you hate a house design, you remodel. When you hate your appearance, you do a makeover. When you hate the bad news, you share the good news.

MSG Psalm 119:104 With your instruction, I understand life; that’s why I hate false propaganda.

Your purpose is to make an impact in the earth. Before you leave the earth, make sure the world knows you were here. You are created to be a problem solver in the earth. Fulfill your assignment with purpose.

In Him,

+La Fayette Scales

Rhema has a responsibility to our attendees and community to maintain their safety. While in-person weekend services are not being held, we’ll continue to offer online opportunities each weekend.


In our last update, Bishop shared that in-person weekend services at Rhema will be cancelled and held online until further notice. We are continuing to monitor the situation and stay apprised of Governor DeWine’s decisions and mandates. We will continue to update our community and the website regularly as decisions are made. Please be sure to check back regularly; we appreciate your patience and flexibility.
