The LORD stands with you!

“Suddenly N’vukhadnetzar sprang to his feet. Alarmed, he asked his advisers, Didn’t we throw three men, bound, into the flames? They answered the king, Yes, of course, your majesty. But he exclaimed, Look! I see four men, not tied up, walking around there in the flames, unhurt; and the fourth looks like one of the gods (Son of God)!”

Daniel 3:24-25 CJB

When we stand up for the LORD, He not only stands up for us, He unbinds us, then stands with us in the fiery trials we may be going through!

“Moreover, I tell you, whoever acknowledges Me in the presence of others, the Son of Man will also acknowledge in the presence of God’s angels. But whoever disowns Me before others will be disowned before God’s angels.”

Luke 12:8-9 CJB

We never have to worry about what might happen when we stand for the LORD as we see in this account, the fires of the world will never burn us! So put all your hope and trust in the LORD!

“Be strong, be bold, don’t be afraid or frightened of them, for Adonai your God is going with you. He will neither fail you nor abandon you.”

So no matter what trial you may be going through, health, wealth or persecution, remember, the LORD is right there with you!

May your day be richly blessed!

God is always wiser

“But there is a God in heaven who unlocks mysteries, and He has revealed to King N’vukhadnetzar what will happen in the acharit-hayamin (latter days). Here are your dreams and visions you had in your head when you were in bed.”

Daniel 2:28 CJB

Here Daniel is making it very clear to Nebuchadnezzar who really is in control, God not man! We all need to be careful of this!

“Where does that leave the philosopher, the Torah-teacher, or any of today’s thinkers? Hasn’t God made this world’s wisdom look pretty foolish?”

1 Corinthians 1:20 CJB

The God-inspired words of Daniel and Paul were written thousands of years ago and are still relevant for us today! No matter what politician, news personalities , celebrities or professors may say, they are all fools when we compare them to the LORD

“For God’s nonsense is wiser than humanity’s wisdom. And God’s weakness is stronger than humanity’s strength.”

1 Corinthians 1:25 CJB

Today, don’t let worldly wisdom creep into your lives, Realize it really is just worldly nonsense! Stay away from the traps and distractions of the world and seek after the beautiful life-giving wisdom of the LORD! Spend some time in prayer and in His word!

May your day be filled with the beauty of the LORD and His wisdom!

Be filled by the LORD

“Then Daniel said to the guard whom the chief officer had put in charge of Daniel, Hannah, Mishael and Azaryah, Please! Try an experiment on your servants-for ten days have them give us only vegetables to eat and water to drink.”

Daniel 1:11-12 CJB

This may sound like a good diet to lose weight and it may be, but what Daniel is saying here take away the delicacies of the world and watch what the LORD will do!

“Unload your burden on Adonai, and He will sustain you. He will never permit the righteous to be moved.”

Psalm 55:22 CJB

Let’s take a good look at ourselves today and see if there are some worldly things that we can remove from our lives! Then watch and see what the LORD will do when the worldly stuff is removed!

“To these four boys God had given knowledge and skill in every aspect of learning and wisdom; moreover, Daniel could understand all kinds of visions and dreams.”

Daniel 1:17 CJB

Let’s fill ourselves with the LORD today and let’s watch and see what He’ll fill us with!

Seek the LORD

“He said, Take your son, your only son, whom you love, Yitz’chak; and go to the land of Moriyah. There you are to offer him as a burnt offering on a mountain that I will point out to you.”

Genesis 22:2 CJB

How awesome is this the LORD sends Abraham to the land of Moriyah meaning in Hebrew Moray=teacher Yah=God! In other words go to the place where God is your teacher!

“Many peoples will go and say, Come, let’s go up to the mountain of Adonai, to the house of the God of Ya’akov! He will teach us about His ways, and we will walk in His paths. For out of Tziyon will go forth Torah, the word of Adonai from Yerushalayim.”

Isaiah 2:3 CJB

Realize, any time we go to the LORD to learn from Him we never will sacrifice anything, because He has provided everything for us! All we have to do is go to Him.

“Avraham called the place Adonai Yir’eh [Adonai will see (to it), Adonai provides]-as it is said to this day, On the mountain Adonai is seen.”

Genesis 22:14 CJB

Today, know you can go to the LORD and He will guide you, teach you and provide for you! May your day be richly blessed!

Shabbat Shalom.

Trust the LORD

“So Sarah laughed to herself, thinking, I am old, and so is my lord; am I to have pleasure again?”

Genesis 18:12 CJB

Very interesting thought here, God the, creator of the universe, tells Abraham and Sarah they’re gonna have a kid and Sarah laughs! How often do we laugh at the promises of the LORD? Maybe say things like that’s not gonna happen or maybe for someone else, not me!

“Instantly the father of the child exclaimed, I do trust-help my lack of trust!”

Mark 9:24 CJB

We can believe in the LORD and still not trust He is going to get us through. We can and do get into situations and say things like “yeah that’s not going to happen, not in this life time or maybe for someone else.” Do we laugh at the LORD?

“As high as the sky is above the earth are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.”

Isaiah 55:9 CJB

No matter how crazy the instructions of the LORD may seem, we just need to listen, trust and obey. He will see us through! Have a blessed day!

Shabbat Shalom!
