Scripture of the Week by JoBeth Kested

Scripture for the week of July 23, 2017

A man’s steps are established by the Lord, and He takes pleasure in his way. Though he falls, he will not be overwhelmed, because the Lord holds his hand. Psalm 37:23-24 (HCSB)

Have you ever enjoyed the craziness of a scavenger hunt where you are dependent upon finding the clues to guide where you need to go next? Sometimes, we can feel stuck in our life without a map or plan to follow and no clue of how to proceed. Due to circumstances beyond our control, we can find ourselves feeling helpless, like stumbling along in the dark and with a fear of failing and falling. How encouraging it is to learn in these scriptures that we can trust that the Lord takes pleasure in establishing our steps and showing us the way we need to go. He promises that even if we stumble along the way, He is holding our hand to strengthen and protect us from the overwhelming fear of falling. Lord, establish our steps, please hold our hand and protect us as we follow you out of the dark and confusing times of our lives.

Trust the Lord by Beth Auman

Are you walking along a bumpy, twisted path? Is your heart crying out to the Lord and yet for some reason, your trust level in Him is low?

Have you ever stopped for one moment to consider that God is not afraid of your feelings? It is His desire that you trust Him and He is perfectly willing to level your path. Talk to Him and let Him know how you feel and then listen to what He speaks to your heart.  You don’t always have to walk on the twisted and bumpy path. We will all have tribulation, Jesus said so, however this is not our everyday experience.

The choice is yours. His Word is True.

His Word says Trust the Lord with all your heart: Do not rely on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him: Then He will level your paths. Proverbs 3:5-6.

It is a part of our Divine Exchange: He has a part and we have a part. Our part is to choose to trust Him and acknowledge Him in all of our ways. NOT JUST SOME OF OUR WAYS! All of our ways. Then His part is to level our path. Life truly does not have to be so difficult. That’s not God’s plan, nor His best for your life.  It begins with Trusting Him.

Lord, we come before You today and choose to trust You with all of our hearts and lean not unto our own understanding. Lord, there are some things in this life that we truly do not understand, but in all things we choose to trust in You. In all of our ways we acknowledge You and we trust in You to level our path. We repent for ever walking on a twisted and bumpy path rather than trusting in You. Please Forgive us Lord. We choose to trust in You.

May this Be your hearts cry.  Blessed be Adonai, for he heard my voice as I prayed for mercy. Adonai is my strength and shield; in him my heart trusted, and I have been helped. Therefore my heart is filled with joy, and I will sing praises to him. Psalm 28:6-7 (CJB) In Jesus Name. Amen

Love Beyond Measure.

Remember, Jesus is Lord and He Loves you with His everlasting, limitless love.

Scripture of the Week by JoBeth Kested

Scripture for the week of July 16, 2017

I will stand at my guard post. I will station myself on the wall. I will watch to see what He will say to me and what answer I will get to my complaint. Habakkuk 2:1 (GW)

Have you ever longingly had to wait for an important letter or phone call that would free you from the anxiety of the unknown or for hopes fulfilled? How agonizing the waiting process can be; demanding all of our attention and hindering our ability to focus on anything else. What if we turned that same waiting expectation and anticipation toward hearing God’s voice? It is interesting that this scripture instructs us to watch and wait with the assurance that God will answer our complaints or questions. Or, with the Lords gentle reproving correction from some other translations. We are encouraged to take our place like a disciplined soldier standing guard upon the fortress high place and to watch with confident expectation that our loving God will surely answer all our doubts, fears, questions and complaints. Lord, help us to wait on You. Give us eyes to see your ways and ears to hear your voice. Yes, amen!

Garland of Grace by Beth Auman

Recently the Lord showed me something precious in a vision. He called it the Divine Exchange. I have been pondering this since that time and He has been leading me and guiding me through His Word.

Here is the vision:  He showed me a circle of huge stones, each cut perfectly, exactly the same, perfect and the same in every way. In the middle a great fire.

On the outer rim men and women riding on horses and camels around and around the circle.

At one time or another they all had gold crowns on and as they rode around the fire they would offer their crown into the fire. Then ride on around the circle of fire for a while with no crown. Then as they rode, a new crown of gold was placed on their head.

I prayed – Oh Lord, this divine exchange, I know that You are the Consuming Fire. Please interpret this for me fully in Jesus name.

As The Lord has led me though the interpretation and revelation of this vision, I am fully seeing now the Divine Exchange.  I have fully submitted myself to the Lord, received Jesus as my Lord and crowned Him Lord over my life.

Through Jesus, we have access to the Throne of God. The veil has been rent and we have access to Abba, to talk to Him, Pray and Seek His Face and He aligns and assigns us. As we ride out our assignments, He is right there with us and we are communicating back and forth. He is leading and guiding us into all Truth (Jesus).

The Revelation of His Divine Exchange was deeper though for me. He was showing me that as we travel with Him through Prayer and Intercession, how when He answers our prayer He places a crown of grace upon our heads and we offer that crown back to Him. There are many crowns and many opportunities to be crowned and lay our crowns at His feet.

Then for a while it seemed that some of the riders had no crown and He revealed that this is the time of prayer and intercession. The time that we are watching over that which He has assigned to us or waiting on a new assignment. Staying close to the fire when there was no crown on our head is vital. As we pray, intercede and watch over that which He has assigned us His Word, declaration and decrees were given over each situation. Each rider followed Him and the precision was masterful – of course because the Master Creator of the Universe orchestrated.

I pondered that only the yielded and fully trained were within this circle.

The circle was far more vast than I would have ever imagined. The horses and camels represented different types of gift sets. Both vehicles and I’m still waiting on the fullness of this revelation from the Lord.

Of this, I am sure:  Being called as a Prophetic Seer and Watchman – when we receive our assignments from the Lord we have to watch over, pray and intercede as He directs. We must yield unto Him and never try to hold on to a crown of victory. We must wait until He deems the time of fullness, when He deems the time of Victory we are given a crown and we must choose to lay that crown at His feet.

I did not see anyone leave the circle. Each rider carried out His assignment with a fully yielded heart.

Many times we cry out to the Lord, where are You Lord, what do you have for me to do? This is the time to seek Wisdom with all of our hearts. Draw close to the Lord and get understanding. Prize Wisdom, hold onto her and draw near and more near to the Lord Jesus. He is our Victory and there is plenty to do.

Remember what Jesus said in Luke 10:2  “The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few; therefore beseech the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest.

Lord, today we come before You and ask for Wisdom and Understanding in Jesus name. We humble ourselves and step into the fullness of Your Revelation of the Divine Exchange. Abba, we pray as Jesus instructed us to and beseech You for laborers into Your Harvest. Lead us and guide us Lord and we yield to Your will and Your way. May we see and know You today in a brand new way and partake of Your Divine Exchange in Jesus name Amen

 

Love you all Beyond Measure.

Dear Abba – my Abba – I praise YOU and give YOU all honor, glory and blessing. LORD, I come before YOU today and I humble myself before YOU.

LORD we need YOU – this entire world needs YOU. Every  Nation, Tribe and Tongue. My family and everyone in my delegated rule of authority needs YOU. Oh LORD will YOU enlarge the place of our territory.

Please LORD, I invite YOU into each and every situation. I repent on behalf of the world, my family, myself, for wrong doing, wrong thinking, selfish greed, unkindness all sin of omission and commission.

LORD please show me how to pray, and watch over YOUR people. Fill me a fresh with YOUR Holy Spirit. Baptize me with YOUR Holy Spirit and fire. May all that see YOU in me receive YOU as their LORD and Savior.

Abba forgive me for my debts and free me from my debts as I forgive my debtors. LORD I need YOUR Wisdom, in all aspects of life. I need YOU LORD, none other will do – LORD all I need is YOU.

Send angels and ministering spirits to help in the harvest LORD, release them on our behalf.  Dispatch warring angels to assist us in this battle LORD.  YOU are our VICTORY. I declare and decree YOU,  VICTORY in each situation.

I declare and decree the name of Jesus Christ my Yeshua into myself, my family, my home, my work, my hands, my feet, my entire body, my neighborhood, my friends, everyone in my delegated rule of authority, my city, county, country and world – at the name of Jesus Christ my Yeshua every knee will bow and every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is LORD!

Abba Thy Kingdom come and Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven – LORD my GOD, my Abba, my Shalom, my Healer, my Redeemer, my Provider, my Friend, my Soon Coming King, my Husband, my Eternal Grace, my LOVE – Please release YOUR Power unto me and lead me, guide me, teach me and provide for me to be all that YOU have created me to be. So that I can fulfill my destiny and do all that YOU have planned and purposed when YOU first created me. Show me and may I see clearly what that is that I may walk on YOUR well lit path – all the way to the finish line in VICTORY.

LORD align each of us apostolically in YOUR Body and teach us to truly see and know YOUR times and seasons – that we will all understand and break the power of this current world system over our lives. We choose YOU!! We choose YOUR time – YOUR calendar – YOUR plan and lay down every single other thing – all that we think that we know and choose YOUR Way!!  YOU are the Way – the Truth and the Life. All glory to YOU. Place each of us where YOU have planned fitly joined together as One – The Body of Christ, that we may fulfill our destiny and live Victoriously with YOU eternally.

 

In the mighty and matchless name of Jesus Christ  my Yeshua Amen and Amen

Love you all Beyond Measure,

Beth Auman

As I have prayed, declared and decreed this unto the LORD – He has responded and given His WORD – Psalm 37. Please read Psalm 37 and may He grant you His revelation.

Psalm 37 The Voice

A song of David.

Don’t be worried with evil workers     or envy the gains of people with all-wrong-upside-down ways. Soon enough they will wither like grass,   like green herbs fading in summer’s heat. Believe in the Eternal, and do what is good—     live in the land He provides; roam, and rest in God’s faithfulness. Take great joy in the Eternal!     His gifts are coming, and they are all your heart desires!  Commit your path to the Eternal; let Him direct you.     Put your confidence in Him, and He will follow through with you. He will spread out righteousness for you as a sunrise spreads radiance over the land;  He will deliver justice for you into the light of the high sun. Be still. Be patient. Expect the Eternal to arrive and set things right.  Don’t get upset when you see the worldly ones rising up the ladder.   Don’t be bothered by those who are anchored in wicked ways. So turn from anger. Don’t rage,     and don’t worry—these ways frame the doorway to evil. Besides, those who act from evil motives will be cut off from the land;     but those who wait, hoping in the Eternal, will enjoy its riches. 10 You’ll see . . . the wicked won’t know what hit them;     you’ll blink, and they’ll be gone;     you’ll go out looking for them, but you won’t find them. 11 But the humble-hearted will inherit the land; they will take pleasure in its peace and enjoy its abundance. 12 How that wicked man devises evil against God’s righteous ones!     He grits his teeth, consumed by hate for the upright. 13 But oh, how the Lord laughs at him!     He knows the wicked man will get his; the day is coming. 14 The wicked unsheathe their swords, pull taut their bows;  the poor and needy are their victims,  and evil is on the prowl to kill those with integrity, God’s beloved. 15 But their swords will bend back to pierce their own hearts—yes, their bows will snap in two. 16 The righteous are better off with the little God blessed them with     than living under the curse of the wealth of the wicked. 17 Their time is short, their arms will be broken,  but the Eternal will hold His righteous children high. 18 All their days are measured and known by the Eternal;  their inheritance is kept safe forever. 19 When calamity comes, they will escape with their dignity.  When famine invades the nations, they will be fed to their fill. 20 But immoral ones will find their lives cut short;  they’ll vanish as quickly as wildflowers in the fields. Yes, enemies of the Eternal will vanish     like smoke into the cool night air. 21 Evil people borrow and never repay their debts,  while the good give generously from their hearts. 22 For God’s blessed children will inherit the land, but those cursed by Him stand to gain nothing. 23 If you are right with God, He strengthens you for the journey;  the Eternal will be pleased with your life. 24 And even though you trip up, you will not fall on your face because He holds you by the hand. 25 Through my whole life (young and old),     I have never witnessed God forsaking those who do right,     nor have I seen their children begging for crumbs, 26 Because they are always giving and sharing;  truly, their children are a joyful blessing. 27 Walk away from evil. Do good  so you, too, will enjoy never-ending life 28 Because the Eternal cherishes justice  and will not abandon those loyal to Him. He will guard and care for them forever,     but any child born of evil will be rooted out, cut down, and destroyed. 29 Those leading God-pleasing lives will inherit His land  and settle there forever. 30 Wisdom fills the mouth of the right-living;     justice and truth roll from their tongues. 31 The True God’s law is imprinted upon their hearts,  and they do not stumble. 32 The wicked stalk God’s good ones,     looking to kill them, 33 But the Eternal will never leave them to the dogs of evil,  nor will they be found guilty when the verdict is read. 34 Wait for the Eternal. Keep to His path. Mind His will.     He will come for you, exalt you; you will inherit the land.     Before your very eyes you will see the end of the wicked. 35 I passed by a wicked man with a cold-blooded nature;     I looked, and he seemed as large as a cedar of Lebanon. 36 But then again, I passed that same way and there was nothing left of him.     I went out looking for him, but he was nowhere to be found. 37 Keep your eye on the innocent. Model your life after the blameless.     Everyone who loves peace has a future. 38 But sinners will be doomed.     The forecast for the wicked: utter destruction.     There will be none left, not one child of darkness. 39 The Eternal saves His faithful;     He lends His strength in hard times; 40 The Eternal comes and frees them—     frees them from evildoers and saves them for eternity—     simply because they seek shelter in Him.

Scripture of the Week by JoBeth Kested

Scripture for the week of July 9, 2017

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 circumstances. 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!

Adonai Elohim’s Grace and Glory by Beth Auman

Adonai Elohim is our Sun and Shield. He gives His Grace and Glory as we walk uprightly before Him. No good thing will He withhold from those who walk uprightly before Him.

What does it mean to walk uprightly before Him?

Have you ever done something that was just bad, shameful or disgraceful? Have you ever hung your head low and felt unworthy to even pray or utter His name? Well that’s not walking uprightly before the Adonai Elohim.

When you don’t feel that He is there because of your own shame, He is there, He is always there and He Loves you with His never ending, unchanging, abundant Love.

You need to repent and ask Him to reveal whatever is within you that is blocking you from His presence. To walk uprightly before the Lord, through the Blood of Yehsua, you have access to come to the throne of Adonai Elohim. Don’t for one moment allow your own sinful nature keep you away from Him. He paid the ultimate price for you to be forgiven.

Repent for whatever is blocking you from running to Him.

Apply the Blood of Yeshua over yourself and enter into the Grace that the Blood of Yeshua has made available to you and enter into His abundant Grace and Glory. Walk uprightly before Him and He will withhold no good thing from you. He is your Sun and Shield. Welcome Him and Declare His GRACE, GRACE, GRACE in Yeshua’s name. Amen and Amen

Remember His Grace is sufficient and His Grace through Faith is the manner in which we receive Yeshua and can access His Throne. He Loves you and His Grace is sufficient.

 

Love you Beyond Measure,

Beth Auman

Scripture of the Week by JoBeth Kested

Scripture for the week of July 2017

Therefore the Lord waits to be gracious to you; therefore he exalts himself to show mercy to you. For the Lord is a God of justice; blessed are all those who wait for him. Isaiah 30:18 RSV

Have you ever felt the surprising sting of injustice from a friend or someone you trusted? You may have longed for exoneration with no idea of where to turn for help. The picture we need to grasp in this verse is that the Lord is practically sitting on the edge of the seat of His throne just longing for the opportunity to extend His unmerited favor in grace toward us! Then He stands up in the fullness of His power to bestow His mercy and extends His righteous judgement with justice on our behalf. As we persevere to wait upon the Lord, we can have hope in His abundant blessings that will comfort, heal and restore us in the goodness of His unfailing love that covers and heals all transgressions (Proverbs 10:12). Oh, give thanks unto the Lord for His extravagant mercy, justice and grace!

Scripture of the Week by JoBeth Kested

Scripture for the week of June 25, 2017

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!
