Scripture of the Week by JoBeth Kested

Scripture for the week of March 29, 2020

Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:6-7 (NLT)

Have you ever wondered how to find peace in the midst of difficult and overwhelming situations? Peace is something money cannot buy, but I am sure there are times we would gladly pay for it if we could. Though not always easy, these two verses show us in a few simple steps God’s pathway to finding His peace. 1) Don’t waste your time worrying. 2) Talk to God about everything. 3) He wants us to bring Him all our needs. 4) Be sure to thank Him for all He does for you. Then, we are promised God’s wonderful peace that passes all our understanding! Peace protects our hearts and minds beyond our imaginations to live the life that is ours in Jesus. Prayer is just simply talking to God and it is the entry way to walking in His path of peace for you today and always. Praise God!

What are you listening to by Beth Auman

Years ago Adonai taught me how to hear His voice in a way that I of course would have never imagined. I never knew that HE really wanted a personal relationship with me and that He would reveal Himself in such a way. This is where He taught me about – Isaiah 55:9 (NKJV)9 “For as the heavens are higher than the earth, So are My ways higher than your ways, And My thoughts than your thoughts.

King James Version – The Dramatized Version – Use this link to listen to the Word of God.

I would sit down for hours and hours with my Bible and ask Adonai what to read to Him. He would lead me to the Scripture that He wanted to impart Revelation and I would read it out loud to Him. I would ask Him questions and He would lead me through His Word with His Revelation.

I encourage you today to evaluate yourself, what you are listening to and use the link above to ask Adonai your questions.

Then testify of His goodness because He is Good. Tell Him out loud with Your mouth, Thank You Adonai for coming personally to answer me with Your Revelation.

I’m excited for you today. Engage with Adonai and know always that our VICTORY is in JESUS. JESUS IS LORD. Amen

 

Love Beyond Measure, I Bless you in Jesus Name

Scripture for the week of March 22, 2020

But Moses said to the people, “Fear not! Stand firm! And see the salvation of the Lord, which He will show you today. For the Egyptians whom you have seen today, you shall never see again. The Lord shall fight for you, while you hold your peace.” Exodus 14:13-14 (MEV)
Have you ever felt trapped between the battles behind you and impossibilities before you? Do you find yourself at the end of all your options and at the end of your strength? In the words of Moses, in these scriptures, we are reminded that our loving, all powerful God is with us. We are commanded to relinquish our fears, to stand strong, and cling to Him in peace; for He is fighting to save us. Casting all our fears on the Lord, He stills our hearts and restores our peace to trust that He is more than able to move mountains, part the seas, and destroy all things against us never to be seen again! Reach out for renewed hope and lift your eyes to see the salvation of God in your life today. Receive His comforting presence to dwell in His freedom from all fear and to know the peace of God that passes understanding; for He fights for you! Selah, ponder these things and rest in this truth. Amen!

Petition by Beth Auman

Adonai my Elohim:

I come before You today and give You all Honor, Glory and Praise in Jesus Name.

I hereby petition You today by applying the blood of Jesus over everyone in my delegated rule of authority.

Philippians 4:6 (CJB) Don’t worry about anything; on the contrary, make your requests known to God by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving.

As Your children, we lay our lives at Your feet and repent for any sin of omission or commission. We lay down any idol worship that we have partaken of and ask to come before Your throne of Grace with clean hands and pure hearts.

James 4:8 (CJB) Come close to God, and he will come close to you. Clean your hands, sinners; and purify your hearts, you double-minded people!

Wash each of us in the blood of the Lamb – Jesus our LORD.

1 John 1:7 (CJB) But if we are walking in the light, as he is in the light, then we have fellowship with each other, and the blood of his Son Yeshua purifies us from all sin.

Adonai – we all partake of Your Healing bread today. Matthew 6:11 Give us this day our daily bread.

Fill each of us with Your Holy Spirit in Jesus Name

Fill each of us with Your eternal life-giving breath Adonai. Breath of Heaven fill our lungs today. May Your Supernatural sustaining breath be all the air that we breathe.

Adonai, continue filling each of us until we overflow with Your Holy Spirit and touch our communities, our states and our countries.

We apply the blood of Jesus over each person and pray for all in faith that as we humble ourselves and yield unto You that You will heal our land.

2 Chronicles 7:14 (CJB) 14 then, if my people, who bear my name, will humble themselves, pray, seek my face and turn from their evil ways, I will hear from heaven, forgive their sin and heal their land.

Today and every day we take shelter under the shadow of Your Wings. We feel Your Shalom and enter Your rest according to Psalm 91.

Psalm 91 (CJB)

91 You who live in the shelter of ‘Elyon,
who spend your nights in the shadow of Shaddai,
who say to Adonai, “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 Adonai, the Most High,
who is my refuge, your dwelling-place.
10 No disaster will happen to you,
no calamity will come near your tent;
11 for he will order his angels to care for you
and guard you wherever you go.
12 They will carry you in their hands,
so that you won’t trip on a stone.
13 You will tread down lions and snakes,
young lions and serpents you will trample underfoot.
14 “Because he loves me, I will rescue him;
because he knows my name, I will protect him.
15 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.
16 I will satisfy him with long life
and show him my salvation.”

We belong to You and we declare and decree that You are our Victory, Jesus

V I C T O R Y that is our Battle Cry!

VICTORY in Jesus our LORD and Savior!

I cover each one in my delegated rule of Authority today in Jesus Name and I pray according to Your Word in 1 Chronicles 4:10 (CJB) 10 Ya‘betz called on the God of Isra’el: “Please bless me by enlarging my territory. May your hand be with me! Keep me from harm, so that it will not cause me pain [a].” God granted his request.

I herby petition You Adonai in Jesus Name

 

Love Beyond Measure, Blessings and Shalom in Jesus Name

Scripture of the Week by JoBeth Kested

Scripture for the week of March 15, 2020

Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. Hebrews 11:1 (KJV)

Have you ever struggled to find enough faith to guide you in the midst of gripping fearful circumstances? In such times, it is important to remember that submitting to fear instead of believing in faith is a choice. Let’s take a look at this scripture with the word fear in place of the word faith and see how it would read. “Now fear is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” How much easier it is to see the foolishness of wasting our time and energy by wallowing in the quicksand of fear that anticipates and expects things we can’t even see yet and have no power to change. We can choose to have faith in our all powerful Heavenly Father that creates worlds out of nothing, is able to move mountains, make rivers in the desert, and brings resurrection life from the dead! Instead of yielding to fear, let’s put our faith in Almighty God that can create things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen. Yes, Lord!

Scripture for the week of March 8, 2020

Bless the LORD, O my soul, and all that is within me, bless His holy name! Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all His benefits: Psalms 103:1-2 NKJV

When you were kids did you and your siblings ever bicker over which one was the favorite child? Isn’t it wonderful if you’ve ever had a day where you feel so blessed like you are God’s favorite! Not so much when it feels like He has lost your address and forgotten your name. This Psalm was written by King David, the youngest of twelve sons. Many believe he may have been illegitimate because he was not presented when the Prophet Samuel came to his fathers house to anoint a king. David had the job of being a sheep herder in the family business that kept him isolated and far away out of sight. We can imagine him on a remote mountainside, playing his harp, choosing to worship the Lord to comfort his lonely soul. In our desolate places, maybe like David, we need to command our souls (mind, will and emotions) to rise up out of the pity place and to remember all of God’s blessings, mercy, underserved grace and enduring love. Oh yes, bless the Lord oh my soul!

Scripture for the week of March 1, 2020

“So I say to you: Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.” Luke 11:9-10 (NIV)

If God supposedly knows everything and has a plan, why should we bother with prayer and asking for His help? Do you have childhood memories of playing hide-and-seek and how much fun it is to surprise someone in their hiding place? And, isn’t it so special to see the joyous expression on a loved one’s face when they walk into a surprise party in their honor? These verses reveal God’s heart, in that He longs for us to seek Him and to find the overwhelming joy of how much He loves us. How awesome that God loves to reveal Himself to us and to surprise us with signs and wonders in answering our prayers. Be encouraged to keep on asking to receive, seeking to find and knocking for the open doors of God’s blessings and abundant provision for you today.
