By JoBeth Kested

Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good. His love endures forever. Give thanks to the God of gods. His love endures forever. Give thanks to the Lord of lords: His love endures forever. To him who alone does great wonders, His love endures forever. Psalm 136:1-4 (NIV)

What would you answer if you were asked what is your greatest desire? If we are honest and willing to be completely transparent most of us would acknowledge the deepest longing of our hearts is to be loved. We all long for and cherish the loving relationships of family and friends. We are encouraged in these scriptures to give thanks to The Lord, God above all other gods, and Lord of lords because His love endures forever. In this Psalm, there are twenty-six declarations that His love endures forever following verses extolling the majesty of God’s creation, His awesome wonders, His mighty power and extravagant mercy. During this season of Thanksgiving it is good to remember the many things we are thankful for. It is also important to be thankful that The Lord God Almighty is good, He does great wonders and His steadfast love for us endures forever!

Declaration For Today In Jesus Name

Each day I go before Adonai and ask Him what I can read to Him. I read and declare as He leads. Recently, He instructed me to share. My hope is that you will be strengthened to move forward by His anointed Word. I declare life into each of you. His Life, His Love, His Word be it unto you this very day in Yeshua (Jesus’) Name Amen

Declare Psalm 66 with me: Shout to God, all the earth! Sing the glory of his name,make his praise glorious. Tell God, “How awesome are your deeds! At your great power, your enemies cringe. All the earth bows down to you,sings praises to you, sings praises to your name.” Come and see what God has done,his awesome dealings with humankind. He turned the sea into dry land.They passed through the river on foot;there we rejoiced in him. With his power he rules forever;his eyes keep watch on the nations.Let no rebel arise to challenge him. Bless our God, you peoples! Let the sound of his praise be heard! He preserves our livesand keeps our feet from stumbling. For you, God, have tested us, refined us as silver is refined. You brought us into the netand bound our bodies fast. You made men ride over our heads;we went through fire and water. But you brought us out to a place of plenty. I will come into your house with burnt offerings,I will fulfill my vows to you, those my lips pronounced and my mouth spoke when I was in distress. I will offer you burnt offerings of fattened animals, along with the sweet smoke of rams; I will offer bulls and goats. Come and listen, all you who fear God, and I will tell what he has done for me. I cried out to him with my mouth,his praise was on my tongue. Had I cherished evil thoughts,Adonai would not have listened. But in fact, God did listen;he paid attention to my prayer. Blessed be God, who did not reject my prayer or turn his grace away from me. Psalm 66 CJB

Amen!

Scripture for the week of November 20, 2022
By JoBeth Kested

Though the mountains be shaken and the hills be removed, yet My unfailing love for you will not be shaken nor My covenant of peace be removed,” says the Lord, who has compassion on you. Isaiah 54:10 (NIV)

Have you ever experienced or seen the devastation of an earthquake? Massive buildings and bridges can crumble as the earth shifts and buckles causing great fear and death with the destruction. Even majestic mountains can suddenly disappear in earth shattering volcanic eruptions causing all to tremble in fear. Sometimes the instability and uncertainty of our jobs, relationships and life circumstances can shake the very foundations of our souls. What an awesome comfort and assurance to know that the Lord promises that His love for us can never be shaken, nor will His steadfast peace ever be removed from us. Because of our Father God’s endless compassion for us, may you always dwell in the unshakable assurance of His unfailing unshakable love and His immovable peace both now and forever. Yes, amen!

Scripture for the week of November 13, 2022
By JoBeth Kested

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?” God instructs us in this scripture of the importance to remember the former things; twice declaring that He alone is God and there is none like Him! It is so helpful to recall the stories of faith from those that have gone before us, overcoming great trials, devastating disasters and horrible wars. In the midst of our current busyness and distractions, have we forgotten answered prayers and miracles we’ve experienced or learned about in the past that can inspire our faith to trust God for our needs today? Let us remember there is no other God whose very nature of love, extends mercy, offers peace, forgives sin, heals diseases, saves the lost, wipes away all our tears and knows the number of hairs on our heads! He is the King of Kings, Lord of Lords, Commander of the Angel armies and yet, is also our loving Heavenly Father. There is no other God like our God! Amen!

Scripture for the week of November 6, 2022
By JoBeth Kested

For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon Me and go and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart. I will be found by you, says the Lord… Jeremiah 29:11-14a (NKJV)

Have you ever felt like you messed up so bad that you are beyond forgiveness and undeserving of God’s love? Sometimes it feels like God is playing Hide and Seek and nowhere to be found. But, these verses assure us that God is listening and really does hear our prayers when we cry out to Him. Listening implies that He is waiting and anticipating to hear our voice so He can reveal Himself and the good plans He has prepared for us. Though it may be hard to fathom, the truth is, God harbors no thoughts of evil against us. He is always thinking of how to show us His plans for our future that includes renewing our dashed hopes and bestowing His peace that passes our understanding. Be encouraged in this promise to you today, that you will find the Lord when you pray and seek Him with all your heart. Praise the Lord!

Psalms 24:1-10 TLV

A psalm of David. The earth is ADONAI’s and all that fills it— the world, and those dwelling on it. For He founded it upon the seas, and established it upon the rivers. Who may go up on the mountain of ADONAI? `Who may stand in His holy place? One with clean hands and a pure heart, who has not lifted his soul in vain, nor sworn deceitfully. He will receive a blessing from ADONAI, righteousness from God his salvation. Such is the generation seeking Him, seeking Your face, even Jacob! Selah Lift up your heads, O gates, and be lifted up, you everlasting doors: that the King of glory may come in. “Who is this King of glory?” ADONAI strong and mighty, ADONAI mighty in battle! Lift up your heads, O gates, and lift them up, you everlasting doors: that the King of glory may come in. “Who is this King of glory?” ADONAI-Tzva’ot—He is the King of glory! Selah

Therefore Go, Commanded Yeshua (Jesus) by Beth Auman

Yeshua came and talked with them. He said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore, go and make people from all nations into talmidim, immersing them into the reality of the Father, the Son and the Ruach HaKodesh, and teaching them to obey everything that I have commanded you. And remember! I will be with you always, yes, even until the end of the age.”

If we are doing what Yeshua told each of us to do, then everyone that we come in contact with will be touched by His Kingdom coming into their earth.

We must all ask ourselves if we are doing as He instructed?

Therefore, go and make people from all nations into talmidim, immersing them into the reality of the Father, the Son and the Ruach HaKodesh, and teaching them to obey everything that I have commanded you.

Question: Are you obeying everything that Yeshua commanded you to do?

Question: If you are, then are you teaching others to obey all that Yeshua commanded us to.

We must immerse everyone that we come into contact with into the reality of the Father, Son and Ruach HaKodesh, teaching them to obey His every command.

When we begin doing this His way, we bear good fruit and people are drawn to His Kingdom.

Otherwise, your just drawing people to yourself.

He gave each of us the same instructions: Yeshua (Jesus) came and talked with them. He said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore, go …

Where will you go today? Will you be walking in Yeshua’s (Jesus) Kingdom authority?

Walking with Yeshua (Jesus) means being obedient to all that He Commanded.

A healthy tree cannot bear bad fruit, or a poor tree good fruit. Any tree that does not produce good fruit is cut down and thrown in the fire! So you will recognize them by their fruit. Likewise, every healthy tree produces good fruit, but a poor tree produces bad fruit.
Matthew 7:17-20

Evaluate what type of a tree you are by asking Yeshua (Jesus). If you need to repent then by all means Repent. Ask Him to help you become healthy and fruitful. Begin by submitting yourself accordingly.

Therefore, submit to God. Moreover, take a stand against the Adversary, and he will flee from you. But the grace he gives is greater, which is why it says,“God opposes the arrogant,but to the humble he gives grace.” Come close to God, and he will come close to you. Clean your hands, sinners; and purify your hearts, you double-minded people!

Abba, we come before You today in Yeshua (Jesus) Name. Repenting for every time we didn’t hit the target. Forgive us Abba, cleanse us. We submit ourselves. We desire to be fruitful trees in Your Kingdom. We give You all Praise, Honor and Glory in Yeshua (Jesus) Name.Amen

This is the Day of ADONAI by Beth Auman

Adonai, I come before You today to declare and decree Your Word over the lives of all those in my delegated rule of authority-those that You have ordained for me to watch over-Shamar in Yeshua (Jesus) Name.

Abba, as I stand and watch -Shamar to see what You will say, I submit everything unto You, I resist the devil and he must flee!

You alone are Holy, Righteousness and Worthy of all Praise. I give You all Praise, Honor and Glory in Yeshua Jesus (Name).

Thank You ADONAI for Life. Thank You for Joy-Strength. Thank You for Your Holy Spirit. Come rest on us Holy Spirit of ADONAI, Spirit of wisdom and understanding,the Spirit of counsel and power,the Spirit of knowledge and fearing ADONAI. We submit to You and receive all that You have for us. I apply Yeshua (Jesus) Blood over each and everyone throughout our generations and declare Your Word.

This is the day ADONAI has made, a day for us to rejoice and be glad. Psalm 118:24 CJB

Psalm 91 CJB You who live in the shelter of ‘Elyon,who spend your nights in the shadow of Shaddai, who say to , “My refuge! My fortress!My God, in whom I trust!” — he will rescue you from the trap of the hunter and from the plague of calamities; he will cover you with his pinions,and under his wings you will find refuge; his truth is a shield and protection. You will not fear the terrors of night or the arrow that flies by day, or the plague that roams in the dark,or the scourge that wreaks havoc at noon. A thousand may fall at your side,ten thousand at your right hand;but it won’t come near you. Only keep your eyes open,and you will see how the wicked are punished. For you have made , the Most High,who is my refuge, your dwelling-place. No disaster will happen to you,no calamity will come near your tent; for he will order his angels to care for you and guard you wherever you go. They will carry you in their hands,so that you won’t trip on a stone. You will tread down lions and snakes,young lions and serpents you will trample underfoot. “Because he loves me, I will rescue him;because he knows my name, I will protect him. He will call on me, and I will answer him.I will be with him when he is in trouble.I will extricate him and bring him honor. I will satisfy him with long lifeand show him my salvation.” Psalm 91 CJB

“No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; He will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, He will also provide a way out so that you can endure it.” — 1 Corinthians 10:13

A psalm of David: Adonai. is my shepherd; I lack nothing. he restores my inner person.He guides me in right paths for the sake of his own name. He has me lie down in grassy pastures,he leads me by quiet water, Even if I pass through death-dark ravines,I will fear no disaster; for you are with me;your rod and staff reassure me. You prepare a table for me,even as my enemies watch;you anoint my head with oil from an overflowing cup. Goodness and grace will pursue me every day of my life;and I will live in the house of for years and years to come. Psalm 23 CJB

Amen! Amen and Amen

The Kingdom of YHWH has come upon you today.

Scripture of The Week by JoBeth Kested

Scripture for the week of October 23, 2022
By JoBeth Kested

But this I call to mind, and therefore I have hope: The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. “The Lord is my portion,” says my soul, “therefore I will hope in him.” Lamentations 3:20-24 (ESV)

Do you ever struggle to find the faith to trust God in the midst of overwhelming situations especially when it feels like the cries of your prayers bounce off the ceiling and He seems to be silent? In the scriptures before these verses the prophet Jeremiah describes in great detail his sufferings and that he feels like God caused it all. He was not afraid to talk to God about his disillusionment, frustrations and anguish. Then he reminds himself of God’s love, mercies and faithfulness in times past. How amazing that even though the circumstances have not changed, Jeremiah is able to declare with renewed hope that the Lord is all he needs. Take your list of problems to God today and pour out your hurts, doubts and fears. Then be encouraged with new hope remembering the Lord’s unshakeable love, unending mercies and great faithfulness to you always. Selah, amen.

Scripture for the week of October 16, 2022
By JoBeth Kested

Rejoice always; pray without ceasing; in everything give thanks; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus. 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18

Have you ever wondered how to find God’s will for your life? What if the three things listed in this verse were the keys to discovering and experiencing God’s will? In the many tests, trials and desperate situations we face each day we all face the opportunities to choose how we respond to life’s difficulties. What if we would choose to rejoice in the Lords’s overcoming power instead of worrying? What if we would choose to pray in faith instead of yielding to fear? And, what if we would choose to give thanks for the opportunity to see God demonstrate His abundant provision for us instead of grumbling and complaining? In Matthew 19:26 Jesus said, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.” With His sufficient grace for today in everything that comes your way, be encouraged to rejoice, pray and give thanks that will set your feet on the path of God’s will concerning you. Yes, Lord!
