Psalm 28:1-9By David: Adonai, I am calling to you; my Rock, don’t be deaf to my cry For if you answer me with silence, I will be like those who fall in a pit. Hear the sound of my prayers when I cry to you, when I lift my hands toward your holy sanctuary. Don’t drag me off with the wicked, with those whose deeds are evil; they speak words of peace to their fellowmen, but evil is in their hearts. Pay them back for their deeds, as befits their evil acts; repay them for what they have done, give them what they deserve. For they don’t understand the deeds of Adonai or what he has done. He will break them down; he will not build them up. Blessed be Adonai, for he heard my voice as I prayed for mercy. Adonai is my strength and shield; in him my heart trusted, and I have been helped. Therefore my heart is filled with joy, and I will sing praises to him. Adonai is strength for [his people], a stronghold of salvation to his anointed. Save your people! Bless your heritage! Shepherd them, and carry them forever!
Read this out loud to Adonai and allow Him to settle some things that are happening in your life. This is the month of Kislev.
The Hebraic letter for the month of Kislev is “Samekh” which is a picture of trust, support, and coming full circle. May we all find a new level of trust and support in Adonai this month that will bring us full circle; ending some things that need to cease so that we can step forward into all the new He has for us in Him. (From FaithTestimony/Quest… see link below).
“Samekh” Psalm 119:113-120 I hate doubleminded people, but I love your Torah. You are my hiding-place and shield; I put my hope in your word. Leave me alone, you evildoers, so that I can keep my God’s mitzvot. Uphold me, as you promised; and I will live; don’t disappoint me in my hope. Support me; and I will be saved, always putting my attention on your laws. You reject all who stray from your laws, for what they deceive themselves with is false. You discard the wicked of the earth like slag; this is why I love your instruction. My body trembles for fear of you; your rulings make me afraid. (Exert from The Quest of the Overcomers by Beth Auman & JoBeth Kested, http://faithtestimony.org/quest-of-the-overcomers-by-beth-auman-and-jobeth-kested/)
The letter Samekh see how the Samekh is a full circle. Adonai wants to bring many things in our lives full circle. Another way to look at this is the word shalom in Hebrew. Shalom means complete, nothing missing, nothing broken, whole. Adonai’s desire for each of us is for our lives to be whole, mind, body, spirit. No fragmentation. When we yield unto Him and lay down our lives before Him as an offering, there is a divine exchange. He takes our sorrow, sadness, despair and gives us joy. He takes our shame, filth and our disgrace and makes us clean. He takes our bitterness, our wounds, our rejection and our fragmentation and He heals us through the blood of Yeshua (Jesus) and He makes us whole.
Many people receive Yeshua (Jesus) as LORD and yet never allow Him the opportunity to make things come full circle in their lives here on earth. Yeshua (Jesus) said in John 10:10 CJB 10 The thief comes only in order to steal, kill and destroy; I have come so that they may have life, life in its fullest measure.
You cannot receive the fullest measure without allowing Adonai to bring things in your life full circle (Samekh). The divine exchange is laying down all the things that are wrong, painful, sinful, dirty, hurtful, sad, bitter, anything contrary to the Word of God and exchanging these for life in its fullest measure. That is why Yeshua Jesus came. That is why He was born, lived a sinless life, died, went to hell, took the keys from the devil and rose again. So that each of us would have the opportunity to believe in Him and have the eternal, everlasting abundant life that He came for us to have.
Yet, many believers continue to live a fragmented and tormented lives. They refuse to lay their stuff down and allow Yeshua (Jesus) to make them Shalom (whole).
Please enter into the Holy of Holies with me today and ask Adonai to search you for anything that is fragmented in your life. When He puts His finger on something, lay it down before Him and apply the blood of Yeshua (Jesus) over it. Leave it there and allow Him to make you Shalom (whole), bring it full circle (Samekh).
Here is a prayer for you to pray.
Adonai, I come before You today and ask that You search my heart. If there is anything within me that is fragmented in any way, please reveal it to me. As You reveal my fragmented heart to me, I yield it back to You in Jesus name. I lay it down. Never to pick it back up. I desire Your divine exchange LORD. More than my next breath. Make Psalm 28 a reality in my life, Adonai my Elohim in Yeshua (Jesus) Name.
I lay it down and You make me whole. That is the divine exchange. I want Your abundant, fullest measure of life. I want to fulfill my destiny and be who You created me to be.
My declaration today is:
6 Blessed be Adonai,
for he heard my voice as I prayed for mercy.
7 Adonai is my strength and shield;
in him my heart trusted, and I have been helped.
Therefore my heart is filled with joy,
and I will sing praises to him.
8 Adonai is strength for [his people],
a stronghold of salvation to his anointed.
9 Save your people! Bless your heritage!
Shepherd them, and carry them forever!
I apply the blood of Yeshua (Jesus) over my prayer today and seal this divine exchange by Your Holy Spirit. Amen
Blessings and Shalom to all of you today.
