Praise the LORD by Beth Auman

Praise The LORDIs this the cry of your heart?  I will lift my praise above everything to You, my God and King! (Psalm 145:1)

We were created to continually bless His name forever and never cease. He is Great and deserves our praise. He knows our hearts and He wants to hear our praise.

We were chosen by Him to live in this time. Have you ever given that much thought? Now, of all time in history – He chose you to be alive on this earth today.  Have you ever thought to ask Him why?

We are to Praise Him and teach our children to Praise Him continually.  Is there a continual praise song that bubbles up in your heart? Just begin to hum a praise song to Him, if for no other reason – than you are alive.

Personally, I just can’t stop praising the LORD!! I just cant stop! He is so good!

Take a moment today and give Him all the praise, honor and glory, tell Him how much you LOVE Him and how thankful you are and that He is so glorious and amazing! He LOVES you and has a good plan for your life. He really does!!

Love beyond measure.

Scripture of the Week by JoBeth Kested

Scripture for the week of June 21, 2015

The Lord is my strength and my song; he has given me victory. Songs of joy and victory are sung in the camp of the godly. The strong right arm of the Lord has done glorious things! Psalm 118:14-15 (NLT)

Are you one of those people that can’t carry a tune and prefer to sing in the shower where no one else can hear? Sometimes we just need to make a joyful noise to the Lord anyway because He is worthy to be praised. This Psalm was most likely written by King David, who was known as a mighty warrior of Israel accomplishing many great exploits in the name of the the Lord. He humbly declares in these verses that it is the Lord’s strength that has given him the victory and therefore the reason to worship and sing His praise. He proclaims that the godly sing songs of joy and victory when they gather together to celebrate because the strength of the Lord has accomplished glorious things. May you also sing the songs of rejoicing and triumph because of the mighty things the Lord has done and continues to do in your life as you daily trust in Him.


Happy Father’s Day by Beth Auman

Happy Fathers DayHappy Father’s Day to all of you amazing Men.  We Bless you and pray God’s Word over your lives in Jesus name.

Father’s you were made in God’s image and are to seek God first in all things. You are to love your family. You are supposed to be a reflection of the One who created you and teach your children to reflect the light of Jesus Christ in this world. That is what being a Father is all about. Love.

We pray this prayer over each of you.

Lord, First and foremost we Bless You Father God, we give You all Praise, Glory and Honor.  You are the Father of all Fathers and we recognize that fatherhood was created by Your design. May every Father rise up and be who You created them to be.

We Bless each and every father today in Jesus name – We bind our hearts together in agreement that they will make Your commands a part of who they are.  That each father will take the time daily to repeat Your Word to their children and talk about Your Word in their homes and when they are walking together down the road.  Make them the last thing that they talk about before going to bed at night and wake up the next morning.  That they will do whatever it takes to remember Your Commandments.

Father God – we pray over each man that you have chosen to be a father, those with natural children and those who are spiritual fathers.  Lord, help each of them to learn how to bless their children by speaking Your Words of blessing over their children on a daily basis. Raise up an army of  Godly fathers. We pray that each man will receive Your impartation and thus impart Your Holy Spirit of Wisdom, Revelation, Counsel, Might, Knowledge and Fear of You Lord unto their children in Jesus name.

Numbers 6:24-26 (VOICE)

24     The Eternal One bless and keep you.
25     May He make His face shine upon you
        and be gracious to you.
26     The Eternal lift up His countenance
        to look upon you and give you peace.

May there be an uprising of Godly father’s called by Your name in Jesus name Amen and Amen

Love Beyond Measure.

Faith by Beth Auman

Faith_smallEach of us has been given a measure of faith by God and to some God has given supernatural faith.  He will send faith filled believers in Jesus Christ to stand with you in your situation and by faith you will have the assurance of what you have hoped for and the absolute conviction that there are realities that you’ve never seen.  Faith is believing for things that we truly have not seen yet. We all walk through situations in life that require our full measure of faith and sometimes we as human beings feel defeated.

If you are walking through a life situation and feel that you need more faith – we can go to the LORD together right now and ask Him together for a greater measure of faith.

Father God – We trust You, Praise You, Honor You and give You all of the Glory. We come to You today in Jesus name and ask for a greater measure of faith for each and every situation that we are facing.  We ask You LORD to bring those who have been given Supernatural faith to come along side of us and stand with us as You perfect that which concerns us. (Psalm 138:8 (KJV) The Lord will perfect that which concerneth me: thy mercy, O Lord, endureth for ever: forsake not the works of thine own hands.

We know that You are faithful LORD and we choose Faith and choose to trust in YOU.. In Jesus name We pray Amen

Love Beyond Measure and Shalom 365

Scripture of the Week by JoBeth Kested

Scripture for the week of June 14, 2015

JoBeth48The Lord Himself goes before you and will be with you; He will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.” Deuteronomy 31:8 (NIV)

Have you ever come to an unexpected fork in the road, afraid and discouraged without a clue of which way to go? This scripture was spoken to Joshua when Moses directed him to lead the Israelites into the promised land. You may be holding onto some hopes, promises and dreams but feel like you have lost your way. What an encouragement this promise of the Lord’s presence and guidance must have been to Joshua and it can be for you, too. Grab hold of this truth for yourself and allow the Lord to reveal and establish the hope of His presence with you. You can release your fears and discouragements knowing without a doubt that The Lord is with you! He’ll never leave you and He is going before you to lead you into the future, hope and blessings He has prepared just for you! Praise the Lord!


Scripture of the Week by JoBeth Kested

Scripture for the week of June 7, 2015

JoBeth47Ah, 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 Almighty? It is really easy to then feel so small and insignificant and to doubt that God would care about us and our problems. Mighty God in this verse means Warrior, a Champion and Hero. 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 to protect, defend and provide for you!


I will fix my mind on YOU by Beth Auman


Is your mind fixed on the LORD’s instruction and your eyes on His path?  We must all remember that He has instruction for each of us. We have only to ask and fix our mind’s on what He instructs us.  Don’t be double minded. Stay focused.

Sometimes in life it is difficult to focus.  We must all take a moment and even in the busyness of the day ask the LORD, to help us to stay on His well lit path, walk on it and not look to the right or to the left.

May His Shalom Be in your life today.  Whatever in the scope of His completeness, may He be that for you today. Jesus Christ is Lord when we crown Him Lord of our lives in each and every situation, every single day. Trusting Him is our choice we are His, but we have to choose faith or fear in every situation.  So, what do you need today?

Don’t be afraid to ask for His instruction and remember that He has a part in the completion and you have a part.  His part is to instruct you and your part is to receive His instruction and stay on His path.

If you have gotten off His path, ask The Lord for forgiveness and for His instruction as to how to get back on the path.  He Loves you and He will lead you and guide you into all truth John 16:13 and His Truth will make you free John 8:31-32.


Father, We praise You in Jesus name today.  Together we repent for not always receiving Your instruction and we ask for Your forgiveness.  Lord, we ask for Your instruction and make the choice today to fix our mind’s on Your instruction and our eyes on Your path (Psalm 119:15).

Lord we make the decree over our lives – Shalom Be in every single area of our lives.  We yield all that we are and all that we have to You. We trust You Lord to bring our lives eternally into completion.  We will walk with You one step at a time on Your well lit path (Psalm 119:105)

Thank You LORD for Your Wisdom, Revelation, Counsel, Might, Knowledge and Fear of You LORD. We know that You are all that we need and we trust in You and receive The Truth. In Jesus name Amen

Love Beyond Measure.

Reputation by Lee Gossett

Be Encouraged welcomes Guest Author Lee Gossett.  We trust the Lord that Lee’s submission will Encourage and Bless you today.

fp071208-35REPUTATION: Have you ever made a bad decision and regretted it throughout your life?

A good reputation is more valuable than costly perfume. And the day you die is better than the day you are born ECCLESIASTES 7:1 (NLT).

In other words, we keep getting better and better with time as God lovingly refines (disciplines) us throughout our lives. We are ALL capable of losing it in the blink of an eye.

I thank God for things that only HE knows about me. The truth is it doesn’t matter what others think of you. The only thing that will matter is what God thinks. And, He LOVES you!

“Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master’s happiness” MATTHEW 25:21 (NIV)!
