Scripture for the week of July 21, 2024
By JoBeth Kested

Ah, Lord God! Behold, You have made the heavens and the earth by Your great power and outstretched arm. There is nothing too hard for You. —the Great, the Mighty God, whose name is the Lord of hosts. Jeremiah 31:17,18b (NKJV)

Have you ever gazed upon the innumerable stars in the night sky, admired the beauty of a sunset or captivated by the ocean depths and wondered in awe of the power and majesty of God? It is really easy to then feel so small and insignificant with doubts that God would care about us and our circumstances. Mighty God in this verse means Warrior, a Champion and Hero. The God who made all of creation, Warrior Lord of all the Angel Armies of Heaven, is also our Champion and Hero! Are you battle weary of circumstances beyond your control or blind sighted by troubles you least expected? No matter what you are facing, be encouraged and trust that the great and powerful arm of Mighty God (El-Gibbor), your Champion, your Hero, is outstretched to you! There is nothing too hard for our God to protect and provide, to lead and guide us in all our circumstances. Yes, Amen!

Scripture for the week of July 14, 2024
By JoBeth Kested

The 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? You may be holding onto some hopes, promises and dreams but feel like you have lost your way. This scripture was spoken to Joshua when Moses directed him to lead the Israelites into the promised land. What an encouragement this promise of the Lord’s presence and guidance must have been to Joshua and it can be for you, too. Grab hold of this truth for yourself and allow the Lord to reveal and 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 July 7, 2024
By JoBeth Kested

Lay 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. Matthew 6:19-21 (KJV)

On the road of life, in pursuit of your success, love and happiness, have you experienced some detours or crashes along the way? Friends betray us, jobs come to an end, 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 (Jesus) have overcome the world.” So place your heart and hope in Jesus, Who helps persevere and overcome the troubles of this world. By His grace, live honorably with compassion, extending love and 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 June 30, 2024
By JoBeth Kested

God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away. Revelation 21:4 (NKJV)

Have you ever cried heartbreaking tears and there was no one there to wipe them away or to wrap you in a loving embrace? We all long for a world without the grief of injustice, suffering, broken hearts and tears. This scripture in Revelation is God’s promise that the dream in every heart to see the end of all death, sorrow, crying and pain will surely come. Until that day we find this comfort that our loving Heavenly Father is our safe refuge; He is always there to hold us in His everlasting arms, He holds all our tears in a bottle and writes all our sorrows in His book. (Deuteronomy 33:22, Psalm 56:8) We can now hold this hope that as we face all the trials and tribulations of this world we have peace, comfort and joy because of the resurrection life that is ours in Jesus. (John 16:33) Yes, AMEN!

The Faithful of the Land

Psalm 101 CJB

101 (0) A psalm of David:

(1) I am singing of grace and justice;
I am singing to you, Adonai.
I will follow the path of integrity;
when will you come to me?
I will run my life with a sincere heart
inside my own house.
I will not allow before my eyes
any shameful thing.
I hate those who act crookedly;
what they do does not attract me.
Deviousness will depart from me;
I will not tolerate evil.
If someone slanders another in secret,
I will cut him off.
Haughty eyes and proud hearts
I cannot abide.

I look to the faithful of the land,
so that they can be my companions;
those who live lives of integrity
can be servants of mine.
No deceitful person can live in my house;
no liar can be my advisor.
Every morning I will destroy
all the wicked of the land,
cutting off all evildoers
from the city of Adonai.

Adonai, we stand today declaring and decreeing Psalm 101 over our lives, our Nation, our families, ministries, ministry covenant partners, friends and neighbors in Yeshua’s Name Amen

Rise up, take your seat in heavenly places in Yeshua Hamashiach declare and decree Adonai’s Word.

Scripture for the week of June 23, 2024
By JoBeth Kested

He rescued me from my powerful enemy, from my foes, who were too strong for me. They confronted me in the day of my disaster, but the Lord was my support. He brought me out into a spacious place; He rescued me because he delighted in me. Psalm 18:17-19 (NIV)

Have you ever felt like you are faced with enemies too powerful to overcome? Sometimes we find ourselves in the midst of overpowering circumstances and feel like there is nowhere to turn with no one to help. These scriptures remind us that even when we are confronted with disasters and powerful foes, beneath our shaking knees and unsteady feet we have the unshakable strength and support of the all powerful Almighty God, King of kings and Lord of lords. Oh, how wonderful to know that our Heavenly Father delights in you and me! He rescues us from captivity and bring us out into the freedom of open spaces with new opportunities. Whatever we face today or tomorrow we must not forget to rejoice in the truth that the Lord delights in us and will always be our strength, our deliverer, and Savior. All glory, honor and praise to our God!

Scripture for the week of June 16, 2024
By JoBeth Kested

The 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.

Walk Worthy Of Your Calling

We are all to be living epistles before men. What do others read from your page today? Humility, gentleness with patience? putting up with one another in love? Making every effort to keep the unity of the Ruach HaKodesh in the bind of shalom?

when people meet us they are partaking of the One to whom we proclaim, Yeshua.

is your fruit good to taste or is it bitter, angry, rotten and spoiled? Examine yourself today and ask for forgiveness. Repent and take a giant step forward.

Keep this Scripture close, memorize it. Walk it out in your own life and treat others with respect. Saved yet or not, they were formed and fashioned in their mother’s womb too. They were created in His image too. They will never see Yeshua if we continue acting like the one they serve.

This is the Truth.

We can stand on Adonai’s Word not bending to the sinful nature of others and still walk in love.


Abba, forgive each of us who ask today for our rotten behavior. We submit ourselves and our attitudes unto You. We resist the devil and he must flee from us.

We take a step forward into Ephesins 4:1-3:

I urge you to walk in a manner worthy of the calling to which you were called— with complete humility and gentleness, with patience, putting up with one another in love, making every effort to keep the unity of the Ruach in the bond of shalom.

In Yeshua’s Name. Amen


Blessings and Shalom – Love Beyond Measure in Yeshua, Beth Auman
