Love Day Blessings To Everyone Today

Let us all remember what Love actually is.

Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.


Everyday belongs to YHWH. So declare His Word.

24 This is the day the Lord has made;
We will rejoice and be glad in it. Psalm 118:24 NKJV

I am Thankful for all of you whom Abba gave to me to Love. His Love is in my heart and my goal in life is to Love like Yeshua (Jesus) my Messiah!!

Blessings and Shalom – Love Beyond Measure, Beth Auman

Blessed or Cursed

YHWH’s Word is Truth. The choice is of course yours. Many seem to be running after the curse.

We must rise up and pray that they see past their intellectualism. They obviously have never actually heard the Truth.

Abba, Today we align ourselves with Your Word Yeshua and in His Name for all who are deceived. For every evil institution that would propagate hatred against Your people and land Israel.

For this reason, ever since I heard about your trust in the Lord Yeshua and your love for all God’s people, I have not stopped giving thanks for you. In my prayers I keep asking the God of our Lord Yeshua the Messiah, the glorious Father, to give you a spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you will have full knowledge of him. I pray that he will give light to the eyes of your hearts, so that you will understand the hope to which he has called you, what rich glories there are in the inheritance he has promised his people, and how surpassingly great is his power working in us who trust him. It works with the same mighty strength he used when he worked in the Messiah to raise him from the dead and seat him at his right hand in heaven, far above every ruler, authority, power, dominion or any other name that can be named either in the ‘olam hazeh or in the ‘olam haba. Also, he has put all things under his feet and made him head over everything for the Messianic Community, which is his body, the full expression of him who fills all creation. Ephesians 1:15-23 CJB

Abraham’s Covenant Stands and we are those who declare it today.

Parashah 3: Lekh L’kha (Get yourself out) 12:1–17:27Now said to Avram, “Get yourself out of your country, away from your kinsmen and away from your father’s house, and go to the land that I will show you. I will make of you a great nation, I will bless you, and I will make your name great; and you are to be a blessing. I will bless those who bless you, but I will curse anyone who curses you; and by you all the families of the earth will be blessed.”
Genesis 12:1-3 CJB


YHWH’s Word IS True! You choose today.. Blessing or Curse and remember that His Son Yeshua shed His blood so that you could have a choice!

Please ask Yeshua-Jesus to be your Lord and Savior today. Lay the devil, demonic hate down and step into The Truth! Repent for your hatred, for believing this lie and ask YHWH to forgive you in Yeshua’s Name.

Welcome to the Kingdom..welcome to the Blessings

Scripture of the Week by JoBeth Kested

Scripture for the week of October 22, 2023
By JoBeth Kested

“You are My witnesses,” says the Lord, “and My servant whom I have chosen, that you may know and believe Me, and understand that I am He. Before Me there was no God formed, nor shall there be after Me. Isaiah 43:10 NKJV

Have you ever considered that there is a big difference between “believing in God” verses “believing God?” Believing in God allows us to believe what we want to believe about God as we attempt to fit Him into the box of our own preferences and understanding. Believing God means we have chosen to acknowledge the absolute sovereignty of the Bible, believing God is Who He says He is and also believing that He will do what He says He will do. God declares in this verse that He has chosen us even before we choose Him! He invites us to “know” Him in an intimate personal relationship that opens the eyes of our understanding with the ability to BELIEVE that He is the one and only true GOD that always was, always is and always will be! Lord, I believe, help me where I still have unbelief. Let your light so shine through me that others also see and believe. Praise the Lord!

A Time to Choose by Beth Auman

I hope that Adonai has found you on the wall interceding, declaring, decreeing over Israel. Remember His Word. Be found by Him in covenant with Him for Adonai relates intimately with those who fear Him. Those in whom His Ruach HaKodesh dwell in. His Holy Spirit of wisdom and understanding, the Spirit of counsel and power,
the Spirit of knowledge and fearing Adonai.

Fearing Adonai is our boundary. If you have gone through the new door then you are within His boundary and must be on the wall praying for, interceding for, standing for and defending the apple of His eye! His chosen land and people. We are One (Echad) in Yeshua Messiah.

Isaiah 11:2 CJB

2 The Spirit of Adonai will rest on him,
the Spirit of wisdom and understanding,
the Spirit of counsel and power,
the Spirit of knowledge and fearing Adonai

Psalm 25 CJB

25 (0) By David:

Make me know your ways, Adonai,
teach me your paths.
Guide me in your truth, and teach me;
for you are the God who saves me,
my hope is in you all day long.
Remember your compassion and grace, Adonai;
for these are ages old.
Don’t remember my youthful sins or transgressions;
but remember me according to your grace
for the sake of your goodness, Adonai.

(1) I lift my inner being to you, Adonai;
I trust you, my God.
Don’t let me be disgraced,
don’t let my enemies gloat over me.
No one waiting for you will be disgraced;
disgrace awaits those who break faith for no reason.

Adonai is good, and he is fair;
this is why he teaches sinners the way [to live],
leads the humble to do what is right
and teaches the humble [to live] his way.
10 All Adonai’s paths are grace and truth
to those who keep his covenant and instructions.
11 For the sake of your name, Adonai,
forgive my wickedness, great though it is.

12 Who is the person who fears Adonai?
He will teach him the way to choose.
13 He will remain prosperous,
and his descendants will inherit the land.
14 Adonai relates intimately with those who fear him;
he makes them know his covenant.

15 My eyes are always directed toward Adonai,
for he will free my feet from the net.
16 Turn to me, and show me your favor;
for I am alone and oppressed.
17 The troubles of my heart are growing and growing;
bring me out of my distress.
18 See my affliction and suffering,
and take all my sins away.

19 Consider my enemies, how many there are
and how cruelly they hate me.
20 Protect me and rescue me;
don’t let me be disgraced,
for I take refuge in you.
21 Let integrity and uprightness preserve me,
because my hope is in you.

22 God! Redeem Isra’el
from all their troubles!

Ephesians 2:14-16 CJB

14 For he himself is our shalom — he has made us both one and has broken down the m’chitzah which divided us 15 by destroying in his own body the enmity occasioned by the Torah, with its commands set forth in the form of ordinances. He did this in order to create in union with himself from the two groups a single new humanity and thus make shalom, 16 and in order to reconcile to God both in a single body by being executed on a stake as a criminal and thus in himself killing that enmity.

Abba, we come before You today as One (echad), standing in faith for our brothers and sisters. There is no dividing wall of division. Only the wall of prayer snd intercession that we all stand on today. The chief cornerstone Yeshua, Jesus our Messiah. Open our eyes, show each of us how to align and what to declare, decree, intercede. We submit ourselves unto You Adonai in unity. We resist the devil and he must flee. We declare Davar Shalom! We bind chaos! We take authority over chaos and together read out loud Psalm 25 and in unity we apply Yeshua’s blood over every covenant family and seal our prayer in Yeshua’s Name. Amen

Blessings and Shalom-Love Beyond Measure , Beth Auman, Minister of the Gospel of Yeshua my Messiah

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

Psalm 99 Adonai is king; let the peoples tremble. He sits enthroned on the k’ruvim; let the earth shake! Adonai is great in Tziyon; he is high above all the peoples. Let them praise your great and fearsome name (he is holy): “Mighty king who loves justice, you established fairness, justice and righteousness in Ya‘akov.” Exalt Adonai our God! Prostrate yourselves at his footstool (he is holy). Moshe and Aharon among his cohanim and Sh’mu’el among those who call on his name called on Adonai, and he answered them. He spoke to them in the column of cloud; they kept his instructions and the law that he gave them. Adonai our God, you answered them. To them you were a forgiving God, although you took vengeance on their wrongdoings. Exalt Adonai our God, bow down toward his holy mountain, for Adonai our God is holy!

Declared in Yeshua (Jesus’) Name amen

Blessings and Shalom – Love Beyond Measure, Beth Auman

Blooming In The Hard Place By JoBeth Kested

jbBloomThis is a picture of my first pansies to bloom this spring. I was so surprised to see them blooming in the minuscule cracks of a hard place instead of the soft prepared soil of my garden. I felt like the Lord was speaking to me through these pansies when I first noticed them this week.

Have you ever felt like you are between a rock and a hard place? We’re facing some hard changes in our circumstances and the very real possibility of some hard decisions ahead. Lately, I often feel rather delicate, small and fragile just like these little pansies. I was so intrigued to see them bloom and thrive in the crevice of some old cement. They are obviously so much stronger than they look and by the grace of God, so am I! It seems like such a great illustration of the hope we have in the Lord’s promises of His provision, protection, and blessings for us no matter how hard our current situation seems to be.

These blooming little fragile pansies may be a small thing, but it encourages me to know that if God can provide for some delicate pansies to thrive and display such beauty in a difficult place, how much more is His desire to take good care of us. In Philippians 4:19 we have the promise that “My God will supply all your need according to His riches in Glory in Jesus”.

Lord, help us to trust You for the protection and miraculous provision for us in the hard places we often find ourselves in. Thank You for the promises in Your Word that are light unto out path and a life preserver to cling to. Thank You for Your peace that passes understanding, Your strength in our weakness and for the hope of Your sufficient amazing grace for each day. And thank You for helping us to bloom in the hard places to display your glory. In Jesus name. Amen.

Scripture of the Week By JoBeth Kested

Scripture for the week of June 8, 2014

jobeth12The Lord watches over you—the Lord is your shade at your right hand; the sun will not harm you by day, nor the moon by night. The Lord will keep you from all harm—He will watch over your life; the Lord will watch over your coming and going both now and forevermore. Psalms 121:5-8 (NIV)

Have you ever prayed and prayed, yet still wondered where the Lord is when you are facing difficult trials, feeling vulnerable, unprotected and all alone? Three times in these verses it is declared that the Lord is watching over you. This type of watching is like the secret service agents; meaning He is guarding, protecting and defending which is so much more than just keeping an eye on you. These scriptures tell us the Lord stands guard over every detail of your life, protecting you from ALL harm and able to defend you in all your coming and going. May we find peace in the assurance of the covering shade of the Lord’s presence over us in the oppressive heat of our days and the warmth of His love in the cold darkness of our nights. Thank you, Lord.

 

Scripture for the week of June 1, 2014

JB16 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 also have longed for exoneration not knowing 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 waiting 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 upon us and extends His righteous judgement on our behalf. As we persevere to wait upon the Lord, we have the hope of His abundant blessings that comfort, heal and restore us in the goodness of a his unfailing love that covers and heals all transgressions (Proverbs 10:12). Oh, give thanks unto the Lord!

Scripture for the week of May 25, 2014

Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand. Isaiah 41:10

Have you ever been paralyzed by an overwhelming fear that seems to shatter all hope and scatter all your faith? Fear is the friend of doubt and unbelief and the robber of our faith. The KJV Bible mentions “fear not”, “do not fear” and “do not be afraid” 110 times and it is usually followed by exhortations declaring that the Lord is with you. God makes five promises in this scripture. He is with you and He is your God. He gives strength to replace your weariness, He will help and He will hold you up in the power of His righteousness. So, let the power of His presence, strength and righteousness overcome your fears of failure and inadequacy. May your hope and faith be renewed in God’s love, goodness and provision for you today.

Scripture for the week of May 18, 2014

JoBeth09I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with my loving eye on you. Many are the woes of the wicked but the Lord’s unfailing love surrounds the one who trusts in him. Rejoice in the Lord and be glad, you righteous; sing, all you who are upright in heart! Psalm 32:8,10-11 (NIV)

Have you ever experienced a time when just by catching a look from someone you would know, without a doubt, exactly what you had to do or where you needed to go? Most of us can easily remember “the look” from a parent, a teacher, or someone that clearly spoke louder than words! The key to be directed by “the look” implies you had to turn your eyes in their direction. This scripture teaches us that the Lord has His eyes upon us. When we turn our eyes away from the cares and confusion of our circumstances to focus our trust upon Him; He is ready and willing to teach us, guide us, council us and surround us with His unfailing love. Then, with uplifted hearts we can sing, rejoice and be glad in the Lord our loving God!

Scripture for the week of May 11, 2014

JoBeth08And the angel answered and said unto her , “…For with God nothing will be impossible.” Then Mary said, “Behold the maidservant of the Lord! Let it be to me according to your word.” And the angel departed from her. Luke 1:35a,37-38 (NKJV)

Are you facing impossibilities and in need of miracles? What a hope filled declaration by the Angel Gabriel when he states that nothing is impossible with God! Previously, before this verse in Luke, Gabriel had told Mary she was to give birth to the son of God and she had responded, “How can this be?” As you are looking at your needs, evaluating limited possibilities or facing dead ends ahead and also asking yourself “How can this happen?” or “Is there any hope?” Remember that nothing is impossible with our God Who is able to move mountains, part the seas and open prison doors for His servants that fully put their trust in Him. Yes and amen, Lord!

 

Scripture for the week of May 5, 2014

JB06But You, O Lord, are a shield for me, my glory and the One who lifts up my head. I cried to the Lord with my voice, and He heard me from His holy hill. I lay down and slept; I awoke, for the Lord sustained me. Psalm 3:3-5 (NKJV)

Have you ever felt like you need a protector and defender or someone to help hold your head up when troubles just seem too much? And have you ever cried out for help when no one was there and you couldn’t even sleep to escape the hopelessness? The Lord makes several wonderful promises to us in these verses; declaring His compassionate care for us when we are distraught, frail and feel abandoned. 1) He is our shield, protector and defender. 2) He is our glory; bestowing His goodness, praise and honor upon us. 3) He lifts up our head and restores our hope. 4) He hears our prayers and cries for help! 5) He grants us sleep and rest in our weariness. 6) He sustains us and provides all our needs. Rest in the assurance today and everyday that He will hear your voice and answer you from His holy hill because of His great love for you. Selah!

Scripture for the week of April 27, 2014

JB04The 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 told him he would be leading the Israelites to the promised land. You also may be holding onto hopes and promises 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 is for you, too. Grab hold of this promise for yourself and allow the Lord to 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 for the week of April 20, 2014

JB03Jesus said to her (Martha, Lazarus’ sister), “I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live. And whoever lives and believes in Me shall never die. Do you believe this?” She said to Him, “Yes, Lord, I believe that You are the Christ, the Son of God, who is to come into the world.” John 11:25 (NKJV)

Do you believe that Jesus rose from the dead? In these scriptures after Jesus declares that He is the resurrection and the life, He asks Martha if she believes even before He raises Lazarus from the dead. With a proclamation such as this we are not given the choice to believe that Jesus was just a good teacher and example for us to follow. He is either a lunatic, a liar or the way the truth and the life, just as He says (John 14:6). The Apostle Paul said in 1 Corinthians 15:17,19 that if Jesus was not raised from the dead our faith is worthless and we are to be pitied above all men. The resurrection of Jesus is the crux of the whole Bible, the pivot point of all history, our only hope for meaning in this life and our promise of eternity. Happy Easter! The tomb was empty, He is risen, He is risen indeed!

 Scripture for the week of April 13, 2014

JBeth02“You are My witnesses,” says the Lord, “and My servant whom I have chosen, that you may know and believe Me, and understand that I am He. Before Me there was no God formed, nor shall there be after Me. Isaiah 43:10 NKJV

Have you ever considered that there is a big difference between “believing in God” verses “believing God”? Believing in God allows us to believe what we want to believe about God, and then attempt to fit Him into the box of our own understanding. Believing God means we have chosen to believe God is Who He says He is; which activates our faith in His Word to also believe that He will do what He says He will do. God declares in this verse that He has chosen us even before we choose Him! He invites us to “know” Him in an intimate relationship that will open the eyes of our understanding with the ability to BELIEVE He Is The One and Only True GOD that always was and always will be! Yes, Amen!

Scripture for the week of April 6, 2014

JBeth01Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal: But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal: For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also. Mt 6:19-21

On the road of life, in pursuit of your success, love and happiness, have you had some detours or crashes along the way? Friends betray us, jobs don’t last, wealth can be lost, and family can cause the deepest of wounds. This weeks scripture challenges us to ask, “How do I lay up my treasure in heaven where there is no corruption or loss?” Micah 6:8 tells us, “And what does the Lord require of you but to do justly, to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your God?” We also read in John 16:33 “In this life you will have tribulation, but be of good cheer I have overcome the world.” So place your heart and hope in Jesus, Who overcomes the troubles of this world. By His grace, live honorably with compassion, extending mercy to others in humble dependence upon the Lord. You will know the blessings of God’s favor, experience His peace that passes understanding and lay up treasures in heaven.

Scripture for the week of March 30, 2014

Breakthrough“The breaker goes up before them; they break out, pass through the gate and go out by it. So their king goes on before them, and the Lord at their head.” Micah 2:13 (NASV)

Is there some situation in your life desperately in need of a breakthrough? There are several things we can learn about the Lord in this weeks scripture. He leads and goes before us. He stands between us and our enemies and in times of trouble He can break us out of places that hold us captive. The Lord of the hosts of heavenly armies is able to breakthrough any of our enemies plans against us. It is our God’s desire for us to know Him as The Lord of the breakthrough. He wants to break down walls of captivity, to make the crooked places straight and to make the rough places smooth on your behalf. Trust the Lord of the breakthrough to break through for you!

Scripture for the week of March 23, 2014

Snow09Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. Romans 15:13 (NKJV)

Is your hope running low with the heaviness of discouragement and the frustration of too many disappointments, especially in someone you trusted? What an encouragement to be reminded in this verse that we have a God Who is hope! He is able to renew our hope in an abundance that is more-than-enough. On top of that, He will fill us with an overflowing joy and peace trusting in Him afresh to move mountains in our defense and opening miraculous doors of provision through the power of His Holy Spirit working on our behalf. May the Holy Spirit fill you with the uplifting hope, joy and peace you need today.

Scripture of the week for March 16, 2014

Snow06Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.” Matthew 11:28-30 (NKJV)

Are you feeling loaded down and exhausted from carrying problems and discouragements with a longing for rest from your weariness? To be yoked with Jesus requires us to submit to His plans and direction for us. Though none of us enjoy or welcome the idea of submission, it is easier when we understand it is His willingness to carry our heavy loads and His desire to plow the paths straighter ahead for us. Be encouraged to accept the Lord’s invitation to walk in humility yoked with Him and find the rest you long for in your soul. Cast your cares on Jesus today (1 Peter 5:7) and God will supply all your need according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus (Philippians 4:19).

The Blessing of Purim By Beth Auman

fp052006-22May the Lord Bless you during the Celebration of Purim

 If you stay silent during this time, deliverance for the Jews will come from somewhere, but you, my child, and all of your fathers family will die. And who knows? Perhaps you have been made queen for such a time as this.Esther 4:14 (The Voice)

Purim is the Jewish celebration of the deliverance of the Jewish people in the story of Esther. Esther asked the King for all of her peoples lives and she could have been killed under the law of the time if it were not for the Kings grace and mercy and love for her. She would have been killed for asking.

 As Christians, Purim is a truly important Celebration we also need to understand the importance of asking for the salvation of those that are lost. Deliverance for all has been provided through Jesus. If we stay silent during this time.. However, in Matthew 7 Jesus told us to ask.

Just ask and it will be given to you; seek after it and you will find. Continue to knock and the door will be opened for you. All who ask receive. Those who seek, find what they seek. And he who knocks, will have the door opened. Matthew 7:7-8 The Voice (VOICE)

 Jesus speaks of doors opening if we knock. Esther did all of these things and she is an example for us. Has the thought ever crossed your mind that many people dont know Jesus Christ? They do not know who He is or what He did for them and there may not be anyone else that has ever asked God for that persons salvation.

  If you meet someone or are exposed to someone who is not saved you are supposed to ask for their salvation; not judge them in their sin they are sinners thats what they do. Seek the Lord for them, (stand in the gap for them) and knock on the door and Jesus will answer and open the door of Salvation for that person. It is a promise in the Word of God.

  Begin asking. Unless prompted by the Holy Spirit, you do not have to go up to that person and speak to them. You do not have to tell them all of the scripture that you know. Simply ASK the Father in Jesus name for their Salvation and allow Him to send the labors in to His harvest. Jesus instructs us how to pray in Matthew 6.

  When you pray, go into a private room, close the door, and pray unseen to your Father who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees in secret, will reward you. And when you pray, do not go on and on, excessively and strangely like the outsiders; they think their verbosity will let them be heard by their deities. 8 Do not be like them. Your prayers need not be labored or lengthy or grandiosefor your Father knows what you need before you ever ask Him. Matthew 6:6-8The Voice (VOICE)

  Esther was chosen by God to deliver and preserve her heritage. We are here for such a time as this. Are you going to be silent or are you going to ask the King to deliver your people, the people of the human race that Jesus Christ gave His life for?  Many do not know that there is a free gift waiting for them. The gift of Salvation.

  Salvation is a Free gift. if you have received your free gift dont you want others to receive theirs? The Lord Jesus Christ said to ask and it will be given. Ask for people to be saved and delivered today. You may be a key used by God to unlock the door in someones life.. simply by asking.

 Oh, Father. I come before You, in Jesus name, and I ask today for the Salvation of all unsaved that You bring onto my path. I speak blessing and revelation over each of all those who have received Salvation to go further and rise up for such a time as this. We all need You, Lord. And may we learn to ask, seek and knock on the behalf of all those who are unsaved and may our relationship with You grow and grow. We have eyes to see and ears to hear You and we are watching and listening. Please show us and speak to us. In Jesus name. Amen.

 This year, Purim begins at sunset on Saturday, March 15, and ends on Sunday evening, March 16. This is a Great time to start asking for the Salvation for those that God brings along your path.

 

 

 

Once By Beth Auman

fp061805-02We are mortals – we live one life and die one death – then it’s eternal joy in heaven or eternal misery in hell. We ask the Lord for forgiveness of our sins and we die daily to our flesh that we will not practice sin.. (That is knowingly committing sin – over and over, knowing that it is sinful and doing it anyway) We learn our lessons from past sins and walk the journey of life learning from our mistakes – asking for and receiving forgiveness for our sins along the way- this is a daily journey – to our eternal destination. (That is if we are believers in Jesus Christ and have made Him Lord of our lives  . Those who have not will live eternally – but not in heaven.)

Hebrews 9:27-28 The Voice (VOICE) 27 Just as mortals are appointed to die once and then to experience a judgment, 28 so the Anointed One, our Liberating King, was offered once in death to bear the sins of many and will appear a second time, not to deal again with sin, but to rescue those who eagerly await His return.

What are you doing with your life?  Have you given thought to this passage? One Life – to fulfill the destiny for which God Himself created you. Are you fulfilling your destiny or are you running away from it and serving the evil sinful devil?

God is the God of life not the God of recycling – He is creative – He creates – He has all creative power and He creates mortals to live one life and die one death. Jesus came once and offered His life so that our sins can be forgiven. He will come again to rescue those who eagerly await His return. We are only promised today.  I Love the Voice Translation of the Bible –

 

James 4:13-17 The Voice (VOICE) 13 Listen carefully, those of you who make your plans and say, “We are traveling to this city in the next few days. We’ll stay there for one year while our business explodes and revenue is up.” 14 The reality is you have no idea where your life will take you tomorrow. You are like a mist that appears one moment and then vanishes another. 15 It would be best to say, “If it is the Lord’s will and we live long enough, we hope to do this project or pursue that dream.” 16 But your current speech indicates an arrogance that does not acknowledge the One who controls the universe, and this kind of big talking is the epitome of evil. 17 So if you know the right way to live and ignore it, it is sin – plain and simple.

He is the God of second chances during life – Jesus is always there to offer forgiveness for wrong  mindsets, for sin –  He gives us one life to live and one death to die.

Holy Spirit of Truth – Please come and impart truth to this generation  – I pray for the Salvation of this generation of people – that they will know You – The Truth and that You will make them free, Jesus Christ You alone are the Way, Truth and Life, No man comes to the Father except by You.  John 14:6The Voice (VOICE) Jesus: I am the path, the truth, and the energy of life. No one comes to the Father except through Me. 

I personally, eagerly await His return. Do you? The choice is always yours..Life – Death – Heaven – Hell.  but rest assured you only have Once to Life and Once to Die.

Ephesians 4:21-24 The Voice (VOICE) 21 If you have heard Jesus and have been taught by Him according to the truth that is in Him, 22 then you know to take off your former way of life, your crumpled old self—that dark blot of a soul corrupted by deceitful desire and lust  23 to take a fresh breath and to let God renew your attitude and spirit. 24 Then you are ready to put on your new self, modeled after the very likeness of God: truthful, righteous, and holy.

Romans 12:2 The Voice (VOICE) Do not allow this world to mold you in its own image. Instead, be transformed from the inside out by renewing your mind. As a result, you will be able to discern what God wills and whatever God finds good, pleasing, and complete.

Abba Father – I pray in Jesus name – I take my seat in Christ Jesus – take the authority given to me by the Power given to Jesus and I apply His blood over each person – I pray individually and corporately that each one will come to know You Jesus and crown You Lord of their life and that we will all corporately be the Body of Christ that Jesus is coming for – walking in power and authority  – living the one life that You have chosen us for and fulfilling our destiny in You.. Amen

Scripture of the week By JoBeth Kested

Scripture for the week of March 23, 2014

Snow07Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. Romans 15:13 (NKJV)

Is your hope running low with the heaviness of discouragement and the frustration of too many disappointments, especially in someone you trusted? What an encouragement to be reminded in this verse that we have a God Who is hope! He is able to renew our hope in an abundance that is more-than-enough. On top of that, He will fill us with an overflowing joy and peace trusting in Him afresh to move mountains in our defense and opening miraculous doors of provision through the power of His Holy Spirit working on our behalf. May the Holy Spirit fill you with the uplifting hope, joy and peace you need today.

Scripture of the week for March 16, 2014

Snow06Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.” Matthew 11:28-30 (NKJV)

Are you feeling loaded down and exhausted from carrying problems and discouragements with a longing for rest from your weariness? To be yoked with Jesus requires us to submit to His plans and direction for us. Though none of us enjoy or welcome the idea of submission, it is easier when we understand it is His willingness to carry our heavy loads and His desire to plow the paths straighter ahead for us. Be encouraged to accept the Lord’s invitation to walk in humility yoked with Him and find the rest you long for in your soul. Cast your cares on Jesus today (1 Peter 5:7) and God will supply all your need according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus (Philippians 4:19).

Scripture for the week of March 9, 2014

Snowymountain01“Therefore do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For after all these things the Gentiles seek. For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. Matthew 6:31-33 (NKJV)

Do you ever get caught in the worries of trying to cover the essentials like food, clothing and the unexpected medical bills or other emergency needs? Verse 26 in the same chapter states: “Look at the birds of the air, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they?” How easy it is to struggle and strive trying fix everything ourselves and forgetting how precious we are to our miraculous and loving heavenly Father. So, be encouraged to seek first the goodness and blessings of His Kingdom purposes for you with the assurance that He is more than able to “supply all your needs according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus”. (Phil 4:19)

 

Scripture for the week of March 2, 2014

Snow05He gives power to the faint; and to them that have no might He increases strength. Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall: But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint. Isaiah 40:29-31 (KJV)

Have you ever been so weary with the heaviness of discouragement that you feel like you can hardly hold your head up much less walk or run? This scripture reminds us that as we wait on the Lord we have access to His power and strength that take us beyond when the young will faint and give up. Though we usually find it frustrating and irritating to wait on anything, this kind of waiting is not idle and twitteling our thumbs. It is an active, persevering, listening and inquiring kind of waiting with expectation and anticipation for a demonstration of God’s miraculous provision for us. As we wait on the Lord, His supernatural power and strength empowers us to run our race and also lifts our spirit up to soar like eagles! Praise the Lord!

Scripture for the week of February 23, 2014

snow04I pray … that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to you a
spirit of wisdom and of revelation in the knowledge of Him. I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened, so that you will know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, and what is the surpassing greatness of His power toward us who believe… Ephesians 1:17-19 (NASB)

Are you in need of wisdom and revelation and/or do you need a renewed hope in order to move beyond your current circumstances? Wisdom is the ability to understand things difficult to comprehend, revelation is a surprising truth revealed by God and hope is the anticipation of a fulfilled desire. We are reminded in this scripture that in knowing Him our Father God gives to us the gift of His spirit of wisdom and revelation. We can also expect to “see” a lightening in our hearts to KNOW the hope of His calling. As His chosen ones, there is an awesome greatness of His power toward us who believe in Him. And, there is a wealth of glory that is His inheritance in us! May you know the greatness of His wisdom, power, and love for you!

Scripture for the week of February 16, 2014

snow03These things I have written to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, that you may know that you have eternal life, and that you may continue to believe in the name of the Son of God. 1 John 5:13 (NKJV)

Do you have the peace of knowing you have eternal life? The Biblical meaning for the word “know” in this verse is an experiential knowledge. Jesus says in Revelation 3:20 (NKJV) “Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in…” Maybe you are like I was for many years, believing in God and believing Jesus is the Son of God, but have never opened the door to your heart and asked Him to come in. In your own words, you can ask Jesus to come in, reveal Himself and His love to you, forgive you of all your wrong choices and actions, to reveal His purpose for your life and to give you hope for eternity. May you experience the tangible peace of KNOWING you have eternal life in Jesus!

Scripture for the week of February, 9, 2014

snow03For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 8:38-39 (NKJV)

Have you ever experienced the abandonment of a spouse, the betrayal of a friend, rejection of family, or a deep empty loneliness that won’t go away? Or do you have an agonizing fear of abandonment and rejection? This scripture is a comforting reminder that no matter what valley of pain or death we may have to walk through in this life, there is absolutely no power, nor anyplace, anything, nor any person that can separate us from the love of Christ. Corrie ten Boom, a survivor of one of the worst Nazi concentration camps during WWII, once said, “There is no pit so deep, that God’s love is not deeper still.” Ask Jesus to come heal your heart, free you from the fear of abandonment and fill you with His love that will never leave you today.

 

 

Scripture for the Week of February 2, 2014

Snowtrees

For God, who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,” made his light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of God’s glory displayed in the face of Christ. 2 Corinthians 4:6 (NIV)

Have you ever tried to find your way in the dark without a light? In Genesis one God said, “Let there be light” and He created light out of the darkness. Our verse for this week declares that God is able to make His light shine into the darkness of our hearts. His glory is the perfection, beauty and power of His extravagant love we can each find in our personal relationship with Jesus face to face. Jesus proclaimed in John 8:12 “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” (NIV) Let the light of Jesus’ love shine in and through you as you follow Him.

 

Scripture for the week of January 26, 2014

SOWSnow01Grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord, 2 Peter 1:2 (NKJV)

Are you in need of multiplied grace and peace? Grace is undeserved favor and divine assistance. Peace is tranquility, harmony and freedom from disturbance or affliction. The Biblical definition of knowledge is based on understanding from experience. Like the Hebrews in the wilderness that had to gather fresh manna each day, Jesus is the Bread of Life that God has provided for us to seek out each day. Whatever we may have experienced of God’s love, mercy, forgiveness and provision in the past, we are encouraged to KNOW that we can seek Him each new day to multiply His sufficient favor, divine assistance, and freedom from affliction no matter what we may be facing. May His grace and peace be multiplied to you today.

 

Scripture for the week of January 19, 2014

JBKSOW1212014And this is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent. John 17:3 (NKJV)

How can we know that God is the one true God and if Jesus is His Son? In his 33 years, Jesus fulfilled over 300 Old Testament prophesies recorded over 1500 years. There is more historical evidence of His life, death and resurrection than of Aristotle, Plato and Socrates combined. All of his Apostles and multitudes through the centuries have died declaring the truth of experiencing the power of His resurrection life. It has been stated that there have been more Christian martyrs in the last century than the last 2000 years! Martyrs do not die for a lie because Jesus is a relationship more than a religion. He is alive and His love is still healing hearts, forgiving sinners, and setting captives free today, including me! Ask Him to make Himself real to you, too.

 Scripture for the week of January 12, 2014

showpath

Thou wilt show me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore. Psalm 16:11 (KJV)

Have you ever pondered what you really need to find happiness? Or have you been tempted to focus on your desires for pleasure and happiness to the detriment of others? The dominant voices of this world encourage us that the only path to pleasure and happiness is to focus on fulfilling our own needs and desires first and foremost. This scripture challenges us to ask God to show us His path for our life. In His presence, at His right hand, we are positioned close to His power, authority and protection that overcomes all obstacles with the promise that we will find the fulness of joy and experience pleasures without end we all long for. Say, “Yes!” to the Lord’s path for you this year.

 

Scripture for the week of January 5, 2014

snowpath

But let him who glories glory in this, that he understands and knows Me, that I am the Lord, exercising lovingkindness, judgment, and righteousness in the earth. For in these I delight,” says the Lord.
Jeremiah 9:24 (NKJV)

We often begin a new year evaluating our accomplishments and/or the disappointments of the previous year. With good intentions we try setting new resolutions with goals to do better and be better in the days ahead with the hope of patting ourselves on the back at the end of this year. Maybe it would be better to focus our energy and efforts on the things that glorify God more than things to glorify in ourselves. By increasing our understanding and knowledge of God, His Word and His ways we can hope to experience and to then extend His lovingkindness, justice and goodness to those in the world around us. What a joyous anticipation to know the blessing of God’s delight in the pursuit of knowing and experiencing Him more in this new year.

 Scripture for the week of December 29, 2013

snowpath2Even when you are old, I (God) will be the same. Even when your hair has turned gray, I will take care of you. I made you and will take care of you. I will carry you and save you. Isaiah 46:4 (NCV)

As we face a new year and things unknown, do you ever have fear and worry about what the future may hold? The older we get the easier it is to focus on the uncertainties and possibilities for unexpected difficulties and disasters that may come. What an encouraging promise from The Lord that even if we face changing circumstances, financial limitations, deteriorating health or the frailty of old age, our Father God that is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow will care for us. As surely as He gave us life, He is more than able to provide, carry and save us no matter what we may face in the future ahead. We can confidently place our hope in The Lord.
