Do Not Become Weary by Beth Auman

The Word of the Lord for all of us today. I Bless His Holy Name and give Him all praise, honor and glory in Jesus name.

Isaiah 40:28-31 (NASB)

28 Do you not know? Have you not heard? The  Everlasting God, the Lord, the Creator of the ends of the earth Does not become weary or tired. His understanding is inscrutable. 29 He gives strength to the weary, And to him who lacks might He increases power. 30 Though youths grow weary and tired, And vigorous young men stumble badly, 31 Yet those who [a]wait for the Lord
Will gain new strength; They will [b]mount up with [c]wings like eagles, They will run and not get tired, They will walk and not become weary.

Psalm 103:1-5 (NASB) Praise for the Lord’s Mercies. A Psalm of David.

103 Bless the Lord, O my soul, And all that is within me, bless His holy name. Bless the Lord, O my soul, And forget none of His benefits; Who pardons all your iniquities, Who heals all your diseases; Who redeems your life from the pit, Who crowns you with  loving kindness and compassion; Who satisfies your [a]years with good things, So that your youth is renewed like the eagle.

Blessing and Shalom to you all.

Love Beyond Measure.

Scripture of the Week by JoBeth Kested

Scripture for the week of April 23, 2017

The Lord, your God, is in your midst, a warrior who gives victory; He will rejoice over you with gladness, He will renew you in his love; He will exult over you with loud singing. Zephaniah 3:17 (NRSV)

Have ever had or are you currently in the midst of one of those difficult times where everything seems to be just too much, too hard, or too impossible? Sometimes the hard stuff feels so overwhelming when we are also battling the wounds of abandonment, betrayal or loneliness without any hope for help. This scripture reminds us that our God is with us as a mighty warrior, our champion El-Gibbor, that fights for us to bring victory into our seemingly impossible situations. We must remember that as our Heavenly Father delights in us and rejoices over us with gladness. He longs to renew our faith and strength in the assurance of the reality of His loving presence. So, be encouraged with renewed hope and faith in God’s extravagant love for you! Be assured that the awesome Lord God Almighty is fighting for you with rejoicing songs of gladness and shouts of joy to bring you into victory! Hallelujah! Yaaay God!

Living In His Truth by Beth Auman

John 8:31-32 is one of my favorite life verses. Jesus said these words out of His own mouth. The “If ” and “Then” clause is within this verse, which means that you have a part and He has a part. IF you will do your part by continuing in and applying His Word; THEN, you will receive His counsel, power, knowledge and the fear of the Lord, making wisdom, truth, and revelation a part of your normal everyday life. Allow the fear of the Lord to embrace you; placing a guard over your heart so that you will not step out of the safe boundaries that He reveals to you; then and then only will the truth make you free. Otherwise, no freedom comes when you continue on your own path and continue going your own way of understanding, thinking that you know what is best. You will miss the path of life and secure boundaries God has to prepared for you to walk in. That is where true freedom is found. That is where real protection resides. That is where His Perfect Shalom is and where you can joyfully dwell within His Perfect Shalom.

The Truth Will Make You Free

So Jesus was saying to those Jews who had believed Him, “If you continue in My word, then you are truly disciples of Mine; and you will know the truth, and the truth will make you free.” John 8:31-32 (NASB)

I have a question for your consideration. If you have received God’s truth, wisdom and revelation from the Word of God, what have you done with it? Are you free? How is His Word making a difference in your life?

Jesus said, “If you continue in My word, then you are truly disciples of Mine, and you will know the truth, and the truth will make you free.”  (John 8:32) As we walk with Him, we have new opportunities to be transformed by His Word in unfolding revelation of His wisdom, counsel, power, might, knowledge and fear of the Lord that guards our path. It is a 24 hour a day, life changing process available to us always as we learn to live within the boundary that He is creating for us though His wisdom and revelation.

Righteous Reign of the Branch

Then a shoot will spring from the stem of Jesse, And a branch from his roots will bear fruit. The Spirit of the Lord will rest on Him, The spirit of wisdom and understanding, The spirit of counsel and strength, The spirit of knowledge and the fear of the Lord. Isaiah 11:1-2 (NASB)

This is an unfolding second by second, minute by minute, hour by hour, day by day process as we receive and continue in His wisdom and revelation. Receiving His Word in our heart and remaining within the boundary of the Word that He has revealed to us, then we are made free. Then and only then, can we receive more wisdom and revelation that broadens new boundaries that His Word secures within us to walk in until we receive another level of wisdom and revelation with understanding to walk in.

Now Jabez called on the God of Israel, saying, “Oh that You would bless me indeed and enlarge my border, and that Your hand might be with me, and that You would keep me from harm that it may not pain me!” And God granted him what he requested.  1 Chronicles 4:10 (NASB)

None of us will ever know everything. We all operate within the unfolding boundaries of revelation of truth revealed to us by the Lord. He will show each of us what we need and when we need it; when we cry out for and seek His wisdom. But, the test is in what you do with the truth that you have received. We are called to walk in the revelation and truth that we have received and never turn back. The Bible says that a double-minded man is unstable in all his ways. You cannot ask Him for wisdom and revelation truth and then not choose to live within the boundaries of the truth that He has revealed. There is NO freedom there.

You enlarge my steps under me, And my feet have not slipped. Psalm 18:36 (NASB)

I’ll share my own life example of this; a very practical, personal example.  I have stated that this is one of my own life verses. I truly learned to live in the fear of the Lord and in the peace and joy of His revealed truth in my life and I’m so thankful that I do. I praise Him and give Him all Glory! Every Word in the Bible points us to Jesus. I have been redeemed by the Blood of the Lamb, out of the hand of the enemy. I have Passed Over. Jesus is the Lamb that was slain. I have received the Truth and have embraced the Hebraic Roots of my faith. The bread and the cup; communion with Jesus. He is the Passover Lamb. I commune with Him and desire to live within His boundary for my life. I will Never go backwards. I have received the Truth and I cry out for His wisdom and revelation every day. I am walking within the boundaries of the Word that He has revealed to me that has become my personal revelation and truth.

You must walk within the revelation and truth that He reveals to you. If you feel stuck or cannot move forward, then ask the Lord what wisdom and revelation that you have missed and did not allow Him to establish the boundary in your life? What was the last Truth that Jesus gave you? Did you walk it out? Are you living within the boundary or did you go back to your own knowledge and understanding; to what is fun to you, what you want to do? He will show you. You can repent and you can walk forward. If you are willing to receive the truth and be free then He will show you the exact place that you need to pick back up where you lost your path.

  But if any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all generously and without reproach, and it will be given to him. But he must ask in faith without any doubting, for the one who doubts is like the surf of the sea, driven and tossed by the wind.  For that man ought not to expect that he will receive anything from the Lord, being a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways. James 1:5-8 (NASB)

Personal Prayer:  Abba, we come before You today. Please open the eyes of our understanding and show us the hope of Your calling. We ask You today, if there is any area that You have revealed Your Truth to us that we did not continue in. Please reveal this place so that we can repent. We choose to continue in Your truth and be free 24 hours a day every day. We call upon You today, that You will bless us indeed and enlarge our border, that Your hand might be with us and that You will keep us from harm that it may not pain us. Lord we choose to continue in Your Word and to walk in Your way of life for us. In Jesus name. Amen.

The Usefulness of Proverbs

The proverbs of Solomon the son of David, king of Israel:

To know wisdom and instruction, To discern the sayings of understanding,

To receive instruction in wise behavior, Righteousness, justice and equity;

To give prudence to the naive,
To the youth knowledge and discretion,

A wise man will hear and increase in learning,

And a man of understanding will acquire wise counsel,

To understand a proverb and a figure,

The words of the wise and their riddles.

The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge;

Fools despise wisdom and instruction. Proverbs 1:1-7 (NASB)

Love Beyond Measure, Beth

I would like to thank my partner in writing JoBeth Kested for helping me put this together. Writing is always and amazing journey for me. I am so thankful for her editing skill and attention to detail. Abba made us a team for His Glory. We hope that this post has brought you to a new Revelation of the Truth. Blessings and Shalom.

Scripture of the Week by JoBeth Kested

Scripture for the week of April 16, 2017

Jesus… asked his disciples, “Who do people say the Son of Man is?” They replied, “Some say John the Baptist; others say Elijah; and still others, Jeremiah or one of the prophets.” “But what about you?” he asked. “Who do you say I am?” Simon Peter answered, “You are the Messiah, the Son of the living God.” Matthew 16:13-17 (NIV)

Throughout the last 2000 years the question is still being asked, “Who is Jesus?”. Many are still saying that he was a good man or spiritual teacher, while others say he was a prophet. In these verses Jesus goes on to commend Simon Peter for declaring the truth that He is the Messiah. Jesus acknowledges here in this scripture and many other verses that He is the Son of God and also declares in John 14:6 that He is the Way, the Truth and the Life; that no one comes to the Father accept through Him. We don’t get the option to believe that Jesus is just a good man, a teacher, or one of many prophets. We must face the fact that He is either a liar, a lunatic or the Lord as He says He is. Jesus is still asking each of us the question, “Who do you say that I am?” This Easter morning, do you know Him as the promised Messiah, the risen Lord resurrected from the grave? To all who believe, He is still showing The Way, The Truth, and The Life. He Is Risen, He Is Risen Indeed!

One Lamb for the household – Generational Salvation through the Lamb of God – Jesus

The Word tells us that Adonai instructed One Lamb for household. Adonai even said that if your household is too small for a lamb, then share with your nearest neighbor according to the number of people.

Jesus Christ is our Lord – He is the Lamb that was slain for the forgiveness of sin.

John 1:29 NASB The next day he *saw Jesus coming to him and *said, “Behold, the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!

Revelation 12:11 (NASB) 11 And they overcame him because of the blood of the Lamb and because of the word of their testimony, and they did not love their life even [a]when faced with death.

Many Christians have embraced the Hebraic Roots of their faith in Jesus. Realizing that Jesus of course was and still is Hebrew Born. That Adonai has a calendar that we must learn about and that we are to observe the Feasts times that He instructed. For no other reason than because He said so and it is important to HIM.

Ephesians 2:14-16 (NASB) 14 For He Himself is our peace, who made both groups into one and broke down the [a]barrier of the dividing wall, 15 [b]by abolishing in His flesh the enmity, which is the Law of commandments contained in ordinances, so that in Himself He might [c]make the two into one new man, thus establishing peace, 16 and might reconcile them both in one body to God through the cross, [d]by it having put to death the enmity.

One New Man, thus establishing peace and might reconcile them both in one body to God through the cross, by it having put to death the enmity.  Jesus, made Himself our Shalom, who made both groups into one and broke down the barrier of the dividing wall, by abolishing in His flesh the enmity, which is the Law of commandments contained in ordinances, so that in Himself He might make the two into ONE NEW MAN.

The Word of God does not free us in this statement from celebrating the Feasts – He combines us and our desire is to take the one Lamb per household and apply the Blood of Jesus over our Generations and our neighbors. One Lamb per household and if you are a small household – then Share.  Jesus, Himself said it this way. Mark 16:15 (NASB) 15 And He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation.

Adonai has a calendar and within His calendar there is a cycle of First Fruits – each new month beginning with the First month which is Nissan – and contains Passover – this is the First of the First because Adonai said so in His Word. Nothing ever erased anything in His Word. The Bible is ONE as Father Son and Holy Spirit are ONE. You cannot separate it because you want to think of an old covenant and a new one. You must embrace it and know that every Word gives revelation of Jesus Christ Our Lord.

Please read this and allow the Lord to give you Revelation from His heart.

Exodus 12:1-25 Now Adonai spoke to Moses and Aaron in the land of Egypt saying, “This month will mark the beginning of months for you; it is to be the first month of the year for you. Tell all the congregation of Israel that on the tenth day of this month, each man is to take a lamb for his family one lamb for the household. But if the household is too small for a lamb, then he and his nearest neighbor are to take one according to the number of the people. According to each person eating, you are to make your count for the lamb. Your lamb is to be without blemish, a year old male. You may take it from the sheep or from the goats. You must watch over it until the fourteenth day of the same month. Then the whole assembly of the congregation of Israel is to slaughter it at twilight. They are to take the blood and put it on the two doorposts and on the crossbeam of the houses where they will eat it. They are to eat the meat that night, roasted over a fire. With matzot and bitter herbs they are to eat it. Do not eat any of it raw or boiled with water, but only roasted with fire—its head with its legs and its innards. So let nothing of it remain until the morning. Whatever remains until the morning you are to burn with fire. Also you are to eat it this way: with your loins girded, your shoes on your feet and your staff in your hand. You are to eat it in haste. It is Adonai’s Passover. “For I will go through the land of Egypt on that night and strike down every firstborn, both men and animals, and I will execute judgments against all the gods of Egypt. I am Adonai. The blood will be a sign for you on the houses where you are. When I see the blood, I will pass over you. So there will be no plague among you to destroy you when I strike the land of Egypt. “This day is to be a memorial for you. You are to keep it as a feast to Adonai. Throughout your generations you are to keep it as an eternal ordinance. For seven days you are to eat matzot, but on the first day you must remove hametz from your houses, for whoever eats hametz from the first day until the seventh day, that soul will be cut off from Israel. The first day is to be a holy assembly for you as well as the seventh day. No manner of work is to be done on those days, except what is to be eaten by every person—that alone may be prepared by you. So you are to observe the Feast of Matzot, for on this very same day have I brought your ranks out of the land of Egypt. Therefore you are to observe this day throughout your generations as an eternal ordinance. During the first month in the evening of the fourteenth day of the month, you are to eat matzot, until the evening of the twenty-first day of the month. For seven days no hametz is to be found in your houses, for whoever eats hametz, that soul will be cut off from the congregation of Israel, whether he is an outsider or one who is born in the land. You are to eat no hametz; in all your houses you are to eat matzot.” Then Moses called for all the elders of Israel and said to them, “Go, select lambs for your families and slaughter the Passover lamb. You are to take a bundle of hyssop, dip it in the blood that is in the basin, and apply it to the crossbeam and two doorposts with the blood from the basin. None of you may go out the door of his house until morning. Adonai will pass through to strike down the Egyptians, but when He sees the blood on the crossbeam and the two doorposts, Adonai will pass over that door, and will not allow the destroyer to come into your houses to strike you down. Also you are to observe this event as an eternal ordinance, for you and your children. “When you come into the land which Adonai will give you as He has promised, you are to keep this ceremony.

 

As a family, we do not celebrate Passover in a Religious way. We come together and celebrate that Adonai gave one lamb per household – Jesus. He is our Salvation.  We apply the blood of the Lamb on our doorposts. Decree Salvation to our generations and have a meal together. We praise the Lord and thank Him for His plan. We ask Him to help us celebrate His Feasts His way and we learn something new each year.

This year I truly hope that you will allow the Lord to minister His Revelation to you and see that there is no bunny or egg in the Bible. That you are responsible for what you teach others and that God’s Word is 100% all that we need now and forever. Allow the Lord through His Passover Lamb who takes away the sins of the entire world to bring Salvation to your entire household, your generation. WOW! A Lamb for a household. John 16:13 (NASB) 13 But when He, the Spirit of truth, comes, He will guide you into all the truth; for He will not speak on His own initiative, but whatever He hears, He will speak; and He will disclose to you what is to come.

Revelation 12:11 (NASB) 11 And they overcame him because of the blood of the Lamb and because of the word of their testimony, and they did not love their life even [a]when faced with death.

Make this Decree over your life: I have Passed over from death unto life by the Blood of the Lamb out of the hand of the enemy. (Dr. Robert Heidler)

Today, I apply the blood of the Lamb – Jesus the Messiah over our doorposts. I praise the Lord for the miracle deliverance of the Jewish people out of the hand of their enemy in Egypt.

I declare that I have passed over from death unto life by the blood of the Lamb out of the hand of the enemy and I ask Adonai for your Salvation. I have received The Lamb for my household and anyone who is near to me who needs to know the Lamb who was slain for the forgiveness of all sins – Please ask Him to forgive your sins today, apply the blood of the Lamb over your doorposts and receive Jesus as your Lord and Messiah and Pass Over from death unto Life. Amen and Amen

Invitation to a Divine Quest by JoBeth Kested

Recently, I find that I am in a place of desperate longing for more of the Lord and It seems that none of the dependable, comfortable ways I have previously known how to relate to the Lord are working. It is like the former things I have known and the well worn paths I have previously walked to get me where I want to be in the Lord’s presence are not there anymore. It would seem my former operations program for knowing God is obsolete; and I can’t find the download instructions for a new one!

 

I happen to like some classic movies, especially those with redemptive messages. I have found myself thinking the words of Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz, “Toto, I don’t think we are in Kansas anymore!” As I have felt that the long, icy, frozen season of darkness around us is beginning to thaw by the blowing winds of the Holy Spirit bringing a new season of hope for abundant life; I am hearing, “Aslan is on the move!” And then, when I am feeling so small amongst other giants of the faith, a bit of a quirky misfit and preferring a simple and peaceful life in the face of great battles that I know God is calling to be fought; I am reminded of the words of Galladrial to Frodo in The Lord of the Rings, “Even the smallest person can change the future.” Also, the wise words of Gandalf, “All we have to do is decide what to do with the time that is given to us.” And then, one of my all-time favorites, with so, so many spiritual and allegorical applications from the Star Wars movies, “May the Force be with you!”

 

So, a determination has settled deep within my soul, for a compelling quest toward finding and knowing God greater than ever before. Oh, I know, that I know, that God is there and I am not doubting His love, my salvation or my calling. But, it has finally dawned on me that He has invited me to a game of hide and seek with Him (Isaiah 45:15), without giving me notice or any new instructionsI! The more I have pondered this, the more I am sensing that God is calling many of us to go deeper into Him and His word for greater wisdom, more understanding and to learn more about His character and His ways than we may have ever thought we needed before.

 

The Holy Spirit has begun flooding my mind with favorite scriptures; like beacons of light in the darkness. Some old familiar words, filled with new hope and with promises of more of God to find and to know. The hope that if we trust the Lord with all our heart and lean not unto our own understanding, in all our ways acknowledging Him, that He will direct our steps to find new and hidden paths into His presence. (Proverbs 3:4-6) Renewed anticipation, that if we ask, we will be given, if we seek, we will find, and when we knock  the doors will be opened to new insights, revelations and directions for our calling and destiny in relationship with the Lord. (Matthew 7:7) Now, I hear an invitation by the Holy Spirit, calling us to wait upon the Lord, that we will renew our strength, begin to walk and not faint, and that we will run and no longer be weary. And then, with the joyous promise, that we will mount up with wings as eagles! (Isaiah 40:31) Like a caterpillar breaking free from the long confining, hidden and transforming process in the cocoon, to fly off into a fulfilling purpose and destiny of discovery and beauty!

 

Father God, help us to more deeply trust You with ALL our hearts and lean not unto our own understanding, that we might find the path into a greater relationship with You. Holy Spirit, help us to to keep seeking, knocking and asking with assuring faith that we will find new doors opened for us. Jesus, come meet with us in the waiting place, renewing our strength to walk, run and then soar on eagles wings up into new heights with the ability to see what You are wanting us to see and to go with You where You are calling us to go. In Jesus Name, amen.

 

* * * * * * *

 

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. I will be found by you,” declares the LORD,” Jeremiah 29:11-14a NIV

 

“Now to Him Who, by the [action of His] power that is at work within us, is able to [carry out His purpose and] do superabundantly, far over and above all that we [dare] ask or think [infinitely beyond our highest prayers, desires, thoughts, hopes, or dreams]. To Him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations forever and ever. Amen (so be it).” Ephesians 3:20-21 AMPC

Scripture of the Week by JoBeth Kested

Scripture for the week of April 9, 2017

Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will. Romans 12:2 NIV

Have you ever felt like a square peg trying to fit into a round hole? Do you have the repetitive lies of the world going round and round in your head: “Not qualified, not smart, not pretty, too fat or too old”? Maybe it is time to heed the advice of this scripture and to stop trying to conform to the self eliminating standards of this world. Be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Believe you are who God says you are; accepted in the beloved, (Eph. 1:6) fearfully and wonderfully made, (Ps. 139:14) child of God, (John 1:12) and that your gifts make room for you (Pr. 18:16). The more we focus on who God says we are the more we will clearly discern His good, pleasing and perfect will for us. Oh Lord, renew our minds with the washing of Your Word that we might find our perfect place in Your will. Amen.

A SIMPLE PRAYER By JoBeth Kested

 

I don’t often write down prayers. But the Lord has given me a simple prayer that expresses the cry of my heart and I felt the Lord would have me share, as it may help you express the cry of your heart, too.

Oh Father God, I enter your gates with thanksgiving in my heart and your courts with praise. Jesus, fill my heart with your overflowing love that covers a multitude of sins and casts out all fear. Fill the empty, lonely and longing places of my soul with your peace that passes understanding. Grant me Your sufficient, enabling, abundant grace to walk in humility with mercy in the anointing and resurrection power of the Holy Spirit, for Your glory. Thank you Jesus, for Your blood that protects me from all harm; and for the assistance of ministering warring angels to guard, protect, lead and guide me today. I declare Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done, in me, in Your church, in America, in Israel – with peace in Jerusalem and upon all the earth as it is already done in heaven. In Jesus Name, amen.

Scripture for the week of April 2, 2017

For the Lord is a great God and a great King above all gods, in whose hand are the depths of the earth, the peaks of the mountains are His also. The sea is His, for it was He who made it, and His hands formed the dry land. Come, let us worship and bow down, let us kneel before the Lord our Maker. Psalm 95:3-6 (NASB)

Have you ever had your breath taken away by the beauty of an ocean sunset, stood in awe of snow capped mountains or thrilled by the delicate display of wild flowers in a meadow? Elohim, the Creator God, the most masterful of all artists, reveals Himself to us in the minuscule and extravagant details of His creation. God displays His majesty in the loftiness of mountain peaks and the splendor of ocean depths. We are humbled by His sovereignty expressed in the brilliant display of lightening and the blustering winds of powerful storms. His mercies that are new every morning are revealed in every glorious sunrise. The Lord tenderly captivates our hearts in the loveliness of butterfly wings, the fragrance of roses and the awe of a sleeping baby. Then, wonder of all wonders we are invited to call Him Father because He loves us! Come, let us worship and bow down, let us kneel before the Lord our Maker.

Scripture for the week of March 26, 2017

“Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go.” Joshua 1:9 NKJV

Have you ever felt like the cowardly lion in the Wizard of Oz, lacking in strength and courage? Are you feeling overwhelmed and afraid of facing what may be ahead of you? The Lord spoke this word to Joshua as he faced the daunting challenge of leading the children of Israel into their promised land; where they faced giants and enemy armies. Sometimes God requires us to overcome impossible giants and overwhelming enemies in our paths, on the road to our promised lands of destiny, too. Our Almighty God would not command us to be strong and of good courage without also giving us the promise that He is with us and able to supply all our needs. (Philippians 4:19). Lord, grant us your strength in our weakness, courage instead of fear and renewed faith in your goodness for the future and hope you have planned for us, amen. (Jeremiah 29:11)
