Scripture of the Week by JoBeth Kested

Scripture for the week of July 25, 2021

Remember the former things, those of long ago; I am God, and there is no other; I am God, and there is none like me. Isaiah 46:9 (NIV)

Have you heard the saying,”You can’t know where you are going unless you know where you came from”? When we remember the stories of those before us that overcame great trials, handicaps, poverty, and wars we are encouraged that we can also overcome the trials before us. Likewise, God instructs us in this scripture to remember the former things. In the midst of our current needs and busyness have we forgotten the answered prayers and miracles we’ve experienced or learned in the past that will inspire our faith to trust God today? Twice God declares that He alone is God and there is none like Him! Let us remember there is no other God whose very nature is love, extends mercy, offers peace, forgives sin, heals diseases, rescues the lost, moves mountains, and knows the number of hairs on our heads! He is the King of Kings, Lord of Lords and commands the Angel Armies of Heaven; yet He hears our cries and carries us when we are weak. Praise God!

Declaration For Today In Jesus Name

I Declare and Decree Psalm 25

Of David. To You, Adonai, I lift up my soul. O my God, in You I trust, so I will not be ashamed, and my enemies will not gloat over me. Surely no one who waits for You will be ashamed. But the treacherous without cause will be ashamed. Show me Your ways, Adonai. Teach me Your paths. Guide me in Your truth, and teach me, for You are God, my salvation, for You I wait all day. Remember, Adonai, Your compassions and Your mercies— for they are from eternity. Remember not the sins of my youth, nor my rebellion. According to Your mercy remember me, for the sake of Your goodness, Adonai. Good and upright is Adonai. Therefore He directs sinners in the way. He guides the humble in what is right, and teaches the humble His way. All Adonai’s ways are lovingkindness and truth to those who keep His covenant and His testimonies. For Your Name’s sake, Adonai, pardon my guilt, for it is great. Who is this man who fears Adonai? He will instruct him in the way he should choose. His soul abides in goodness, and his offspring will inherit the land. The secret of Adonai is for those who fear Him. He makes His covenant known to them. My eyes are always looking to Adonai, for He will pull my feet out of the net. Turn to me and be gracious to me, for I am lonely and afflicted. The troubles of my heart increase. Bring me out of my distress. See my affliction and my suffering, and take away all my sins. See my enemies, how many they are— they hate me with violent hatred. Guard my soul and deliver me. Let me not be ashamed, for I take refuge in You. May integrity and uprightness protect me— for I wait for You. Redeem Israel, O God, from all their troubles.

Declaration For Today In Jesus Name

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

Psalm 48 A song, a psalm of the sons of Korah. Great is Adonai, and greatly to be praised in the city of our God—His holy mountain. A beautiful height—the joy of the whole earth— is Mount Zion, on the northern side of the city of the great King. God, in her palaces, is known as a stronghold. For behold, the kings assembled, they advanced together. They saw, then they were astounded, they fled in terror. Trembling seized them there, pain like a woman in labor. With an east wind You broke the ships of Tarshish. As we have heard, so have we seen, in the city of Adonai-Tzva’ot, in the city of our God. God will establish her forever. Selah We have meditated on Your lovingkindness, O God, in the midst of Your Temple. Like Your Name, O God, so is Your praise to the ends of the earth. Your right hand is full of righteousness. Mount Zion is glad, the daughters of Judah rejoice, because of Your judgments. Walk about Zion, go around her. Count her towers. Consider her ramparts, go through her palaces, so you may describe it to the next generation. For this God is our God, forever and ever! He will guide us to the end.

Scripture for the week of July 18, 2021

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. Isaiah 41:10

Have you ever been paralyzed by an overwhelming fear that seems to shatter all hope and scatter all your faith? Fear is the friend of doubt and unbelief and the robber of our faith. The KJV Bible mentions “fear not”, “do not fear” and “do not be afraid” 110 times and it is usually followed by exhortations declaring that the Lord is with you. God makes five promises in this scripture: 1) He is with you. 2) He is your God. 3) He gives strength to replace your weariness. 4) He will help you. 5) He will hold you up in the power of His righteousness. So, let’s trust the power of His presence, strength and righteousness to overcome all our fears of failure and inadequacy that try to overwhelm us. May our hope be renewed and faith strengthened in these assurances of God’s steadfast love, goodness and provision for us today. Amen!

Declaration For Today In Jesus Name.

I Declare and Decree Psalm 46 over our lives today! God is our refuge and strength. He is our ever present help in trouble. We are unafraid! In Jesus Name

Psalm 46 CJB

For the leader. By the descendants of Korach. On ‘alamot [high-pitched musical instruments?]. A song:

God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Therefore we are unafraid, even if the earth gives way, even if the mountains tumble into the depths of the sea, even if its waters rage and foam, and mountains shake at its turbulence. (Selah) There is a river whose streams gladden the city of God, the holy habitation of ‘Elyon — God is in the city. It will not be moved — when daybreak comes, God will help it. Nations were in turmoil, kingdoms were moved; his voice thundered forth, and the earth melted away. Adonai-Tzva’ot is with us, our fortress, the God of Ya‘akov. (Selah) Come and see the works of Adonai, the astounding deeds he has done on the earth. To the ends of the earth he makes wars cease — he breaks the bow, snaps the spear, burns the shields in the fire. “Desist, and learn that I am God, supreme over the nations, supreme over the earth.” Adonai-Tzva’ot is with us, our fortress, the God of Ya‘akov. (Selah)

Welcome the Month of Av 5781

Welcome to the Month of AV.

Av is a very important month for all of us. It is the month to deal with any and all cracks in our foundations that have given the devil access to our lives. The month to shut the door to the devil and receive the finished work of the Cross.

The month to deal with generational curses, the month of repentance and reconciliation. The month to receive ADONAI our Elohim’s greatest Blessing Yeshua. The month to move forward with Him in His Blessings.

Are you going to begin a new Blessing cycle or Curse cycle? The choice ultimately is yours.

Please ask ADONAI to search your heart. Ask Him if there are any curses operating in your life, if so, repent and apply Yeshua’s blood over your life and be free.

For more information about the Month of Av, please take a moment to read this excerpt from The Quest of the Overcomers:

Scripture of the Week by JoBeth Kested

Scripture for the week of July, 11, 2021

O taste and see that the LORD is good: blessed is the man that trusts in him. The young lions do lack, and suffer hunger: but they that seek the LORD shall not want any good thing. Psalm 34:8,10 (NKJV)

Have you ever longed for the taste of something like the first sip of coffee in the morning, your favorite piece of pie or maybe the best decadent chocolate as it melts in your mouth? There is nothing quite like that first taste that is so satisfying; that causes us to savor or cherish the moment and is often accompanied by the feelings of comfort and happiness. This verse seems to encourage us that we don’t have to struggle and fret because we can’t understand the whole Bible or to grasp all the ways of God. If we will just begin to taste a little at a time of God’s love, goodness, mercy and grace we will want to keep seeking for more and more of Him as we see the blessings of His comfort, peace and joy in every aspect of our lives. O taste and see that the Lord is good!

Scripture for the week of July 4, 2021

Ah, Lord God! Behold, You have made the heavens and the earth by Your great power and outstretched arm. There is nothing too hard for You. —the Great, the Mighty God, whose name is the Lord of hosts. Jeremiah 31:17,18b (NKJV)

Have you ever gazed upon the innumerable stars in the night sky in awe of the power and majesty of God? It is really easy to then feel so small and insignificant with doubts that God would care about us and our problems. Mighty God in this verse means Warrior, a Champion and Hero. The God who made all of creation, Warrior Lord of all the Angelic armies of Heaven, is also our Champion and Hero! Are you battle weary of circumstances beyond your control or blind sighted by attacks you least expected? No matter what you are facing, be encouraged and trust that the great and powerful arm of Mighty God (El-Gibbor), your Champion, your Hero, is outstretched to you and nothing is too hard for Him! There is nothing too hard for our God to protect and provide, to lead and guide us in all our circumstances. Yes, Amen!

Psalm 43 and Psalm 101

Psalm 43

Judge me, God, and plead my cause against a faithless nation. Rescue me from those who deceive and from those who are unjust. For you are the God of my strength; why have you thrust me aside? Why must I go about mourning, under pressure by the enemy? Send out your light and your truth; let them be my guide; let them lead me to your holy mountain, to the places where you live. Then I will go to the altar of God, to God, my joy and delight; I will praise you on the lyre, God, my God. My soul, why are you so downcast? Why are you groaning inside me? Hope in God, since I will praise him again for being my Savior and God.
Psalm 43:1-5 – https://www.biblegateway.com/passage?search=Psalm%2043:1-5&version=CJB

Psalm 101
A psalm of David: I am singing of grace and justice; I am singing to you, Adonai. I will follow the path of integrity; when will you come to me? I will run my life with a sincere heart inside my own house. I will not allow before my eyes any shameful thing. I hate those who act crookedly; what they do does not attract me. Deviousness will depart from me; I will not tolerate evil. If someone slanders another in secret, I will cut him off. Haughty eyes and proud hearts I cannot abide. I look to the faithful of the land, so that they can be my companions; those who live lives of integrity can be servants of mine. No deceitful person can live in my house; no liar can be my advisor. Every morning I will destroy all the wicked of the land, cutting off all evildoers from the city of Adonai.
