Scripture for the week of October 8, 2023
By JoBeth Kested

But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should show forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvelous light; 1 Peter 2:9 NKJV

Have you ever felt like a misfit, too different or unacceptable to others around you; among your friends, at work or in your family? Sometimes it can be so hard to handle those inner voices that say, “You don’t fit”, ” Not good enough”, or “Never going to make it”. What an encouragement to find in this scripture what God has to say about you. You are a chosen one! You are a part of the elite inner circle with access to God; a Holy nation! And, you are part of a distinctive people that have accepted God’s invitation to come out of the dark painful, depressing and hopeless places into the marvelous light of His love! So lift your heart, your hands and your voice to praise the Lord because you are a chosen, special one with the opportunity to display His goodness and glory to all those around you in this world! Thank You, Lord!

Arise, shine; For your light has come! And the glory of the LORD is risen upon you. For behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, And deep darkness the people; But the LORD will arise over you, And His glory will be seen upon you. Isaiah 60:1-2 NKJV

Is there anything more beautiful than the dawning rays of sunlight breaking into a new day over majestic mountains, upon rolling ocean waves or watching from the serenity of your own back porch? But, what does the glory of the Lord rising upon us mean? The glory of the Lord in this scripture seems to mean the promise of His loving presence that drives away loneliness, the comfort of His peace that passes understanding, blessings of mercy that triumph over judgement, and the goodness of His enabling grace bestowed upon us. There are times we all need the restoring hope of light to drive out the darkness of fearful times and the unexpected circumstances afflicting our souls. What an encouraging gift we have in the promise of these scriptures that even in the darkest times our loving God promises the arising light upon us with His glorious presence, comfort and sufficient grace for each day. Thank You, Lord!

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 helpful to recall the stories of faith from those that have gone before us, overcoming great trials, handicaps, poverty and wars. In the midst of our current needs and busyness, have we forgotten the 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 is 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!

By JoBeth Kested

“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 a situation in your life where you are desperately in need of a breakthrough? There are several things the Lord reveals to us about Himself in this scripture. He is the Lord of the Breakthrough! He leads and goes before us. He stands between us and our enemies in times of trouble. He is The Almighty God that can break open any gates of captivity. He’s the Lord of the Hosts of Heavenly Angel armies and is able to breakthrough any of our enemies plans against us! He is able to make the crooked places straight and make the rough places smooth on our behalf. The Lord God of all Heaven and Earth is our protector, defender and provider King and He desires for us to know Him as our God Who breaks through! Ask God to reveal Himself as the Lord of the Breakthrough from any and all hindering circumstances in your life today!

Scripture for the week of July 23, 2023

A man’s steps are established by the Lord, and He takes pleasure in his way. Though he falls, he will not be overwhelmed, because the Lord holds his hand. Psalm 37:23-24 (HCSB)

Have you ever enjoyed the craziness of a scavenger hunt where you are dependent upon finding the clues to guide where you need to go next? Sometimes, we can feel stuck in our life without a map or plan to follow and no clue of how to proceed. Due to circumstances beyond our control, we can find ourselves feeling helpless, like stumbling along in the dark with a fear of failing and falling. How encouraging it is to learn in these scriptures that we can trust that the Lord takes pleasure in establishing our steps and showing us the way we need to go. He promises that even if we stumble along the way, He is holding our hand to strengthen and protect us from the overwhelming fear of falling. Lord, establish our steps, please hold our hand and protect us as we follow you out of the dark and confusing times of our lives. Amen.

Choose to Walk in the LIGHT by Beth Auman

The words “But if” implies a choice that is being presented to us. . 7 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. 1 John 1:7

We must choose to walk in the light as He Yeshua (Jesus) is in the light… then once the choice has been made, we have fellowship with each other, and the blood of His Son Yeshua (Jesus) purifies us from all sin.

Dear one, this choice must be made in every circumstance that we face. If we slander, speak or seek unholy angry, selfish, disrespectful, disparaging words against our brothers and sisters, we are not walking in His Light. We are in fact walking in sin and darkness.

Abba, forgive us for our refusal to walk in the Light Yeshua (Jesus) as He is in the Light. He IS the Light!

We choose You Yeshua (Jesus). We ask for and offer forgiveness to anyone who has spoken wickedly against us and anyone that we have spoken wickedly against. We apply Yeshua (Jesus) blood over our brothers and sisters as well as ourselves.

We set our will to walk in The Light Yeshua

(Jesus). We choose Your will and Your eat, today and everyday and circumstances that we find ourselves in.

John 8:12 CJB 12 Yeshua spoke to them again: “I am the light of the world; whoever follows me will never walk in darkness but will have the light which gives life.”
John 14:6 CJB 6 Yeshua said, “I AM the Way — and the Truth and the Life; no one comes to the Father except through me.

We choose Yeshua (Jesus), today and every day. Thank You Abba for Your Son! Your Plan for our lives. In Yeshua (Jesus) Name Amen


Please read all of 1John 1. Ask Abba to reveal His Light Yeshua (Jesus).

1 John 1 CJB

1 The Word, which gives life!
He existed from the beginning.
We have heard him,
we have seen him with our eyes,
we have contemplated him,
we have touched him with our hands!

The life appeared,
    and we have seen it.
We are testifying to it
    and announcing it to you —
eternal life!

He was with the Father,
    and he appeared to us.
What we have seen and heard,
    we are proclaiming to you;
so that you too
    may have fellowship with us.
Our fellowship is with the Father
    and with his Son, Yeshua the Messiah.
We are writing these things
        so that our joy may be complete.

And this is the message which we have heard from him and proclaim to you: God is light, and there is no darkness in him — none!

If we claim to have fellowship with him while we are walking in the darkness, we are lying and not living out the truth. 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.

If we claim not to have sin, we are deceiving ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we acknowledge our sins, then, since he is trustworthy and just, he will forgive them and purify us from all wrongdoing.

10 If we claim we have not been sinning, we are making him out to be a liar, and his Word is not in us.


Blessings and Shalom- Love Beyond Measure, Beth Auman

Walk in The Light.

Strength by Beth Auman

Are you exhausted, anxious, without strength to move forward? When we attempt to do life in our own strength, we fail. Life can be exhausting. Life can also be exhilarating. Always remember Proverbs 18:21.

Declare The Word  of Adonai over your life today.

Proverbs 18:21 CJB 21 The tongue has power over life and death;  those who indulge it must eat its fruit.

Blessings and Shalom – Love Beyond Measure, Beth Auman

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

Declaration For Today In Jesus Name

Psalm 36:1-13 CJB For the leader. By David, the servant of Adonai: Crime speaks to the wicked. I perceive this in my heart; before his eyes there is no fear of God. For, the way he sees it, crime makes his life easy — that is, until his wrongs are discovered; then, he is hated. His words are wrong and deceitful; he has stopped being wise and doing good. He devises trouble as he lies in bed; so set is he on his own bad way that he doesn’t hate evil. Adonai, in the heavens is your grace; your faithfulness reaches to the skies. Your righteousness is like the mountains of God, your judgments are like the great deep. You save man and beast, Adonai. How precious, God, is your grace! People take refuge in the shadow of your wings, they feast on the rich bounty of your house, and you have them drink from the stream of your delights. For with you is the fountain of life; in your light we see light. Continue your grace to those who know you and your righteousness to the upright in heart. Don’t let the foot of the proud tread on me or the hands of the wicked drive me away. There they lie fallen, those evildoers, flung down and unable to rise.

The Breaker Anointing By JoBeth Kested

Breakerphoto

Some years ago, within a couple of weeks, at three different times, I had people that didn’t know me personally share that I prayed with a “Breaker Anointing”. I had attended some prayer gatherings and conferences where there was the opportunity to be prayed over to receive encouraging prophetic Words from the Lord. While praying for me, one person said they saw a picture of a charging rhino with no fear that couldn’t be stopped. Another person declared seeing a picture of a huge bulldozer able to move massive boulders out of the way. And a third time, someone shared they saw prayers like cannon balls that could break through and break down thick and high walls. All three used the term “Breaker Anointing” when they prayed for me.

At that time I was fairly new to learning about strategic and spiritual warfare type prayer and had never heard anyone refer to a Breaker Anointing. Along with several other praying friends, we asked the Lord to give us understanding and to give us insight from His Word. The Lord led us to the following scripture verses showing us that He is the God of the breakthrough and He is “The Breaker Anointing”.

“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)

“The Lord has broken through my enemies before me like the breakthrough of waters.” Therefore he (David) named that place Baal Perazim (Hebrew meaning the Lord “bursts” or breaks through). 2 Samuel 5:20b (NASV)

For it is a day of trouble and treading down and perplexity by the Lord GOD of hosts in the Valley of Vision— breaking down the walls… Isaiah 22:5 (KJV)

There are several things to understand that the Lord reveals about Himself in these scriptures. 1) He goes before us. He leads. He stands between us and our enemies. 2) He is like a dam that bursts forth with rushing water that cannot be stopped and washes away everything in its path. 3) In times of trouble, heaviness and confusion He can break down any walls that hold us captive. 4) He is the Lord of the hosts of heavenly armies and there is no enemy army standing against us that can stop His breakthrough on our behalf.

Then I inquired of the Lord for greater understanding on how I had learned to pray with His Breaker Anointing. Let me add that my understanding of breakthrough was mostly how a runner finishes the race and breaks through across the finish line. Yes, that is a good picture of breaking through, but The Breaker Anointing is much more than that. It requires an intimate relationship with the Lord that goes way beyond our own strength and talent.

The Lord first revealed a picture of me learning to dance with Him; allowing Him to hold me close to His heart, following His footsteps and yielding to His lead. In learning His ways and how to trust in Him completely, I could follow Him with His slightest touch. Every so often He would send me twirling away to joyfully watch me dance more boldly and powerfully. Each time, I would then quickly return to His loving embrace; yielding more and more closely to His lead. This showed me that we become stronger, bolder and more powerful in prayer the more we cling the Lord, understanding His ways, yielding to His slightest touch, following His every footstep. Even through the battles and weariness of prevailing prayer and intercession, we need to lean closely into His loving embrace in order to clearly hear His voice, to delight in the joy of knowing His heart and praying His will in extending the purposes of His Kingdom.

Then I was reminded of how my husband and I used to love watching the winter breaking waves when we lived for a couple of years on the Big Island of Hawaii. On the Kona side, there is a beach referred to by the locals as Children’s Beach. In the summer months it is an enjoyable, safe and shallow beach, wonderful for snorkeling and surrounded by shady palm trees. But, in the winter all the beautiful white sand is washed away when great and powerful waves swell up to break upon the lava reef rocks over and over again. As each big wave breaks, the water rushes to the shore, then is swept back out into the deep to build another breaker wave. Over time the lava rocks have been made smooth by the force of the winter breaker waves. In prayer, there are seasons to enjoy being His child and to give thanks, delighting in all the beauty He has created around us. But, then there are times when we must yield to the flow and direction of His Holy Spirit to pray warring breaker prayers that are essential in His Kingdom purposes to breakthrough our enemies attacks that would destroy us and others in our spheres of influence.

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 as we learn to pray with The Breaker Anointing against powers, principalities and wickedness in high places (Ephesians 6:12) declaring “Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.”

Lord Jesus, help us learn to cling to You, follow Your footsteps, yielding to Your every tender touch that we might know You as The Lord of the Breakthrough in our lives. And, how to hear Your voice in prayer with “The Breaker Anointing”. Amen.
