Listen to Adonai

“I said, Please, Adonai! God of heaven! You great and fearsome God, who keeps His covenant and extends grace to those who love Him and observe His mitzvot!”
Nehemiah 1:5 CJB

God always keeps His promises, this is why we should simply just do what He says!

“You are to follow Adonai your God, fear Him, obey His mitzvot (commands), listen to what He says, serve Him and cling to Him.”
Deuteronomy 13:5 CJB verse 4 in other translations.

We serve such an amazing and gracious God, why wouldn’t we want to do what He says and cling to Him?

“If you love Me, you will keep My commands.”
John 14:15 CJB

Today, the best thing we can do is look to Adonai and do everything He says, using His word to guide us!
Have a blessed day knowing God will keep all His promises to you!

Repent

“Now, therefore, make confession to Adonai, the God of your ancestors; and do what will please Him by separating yourselves from peoples of the land and from the foreign women.”
Ezra 10:11 CJB

Every time Israel got in trouble it was because they mingled with the world and then they were slowly dragged into all kinds of Idol worship! God really desires us to repent and do a one-eighty from the path of sin!

“He sounds a warning in their ears and orders them to repent of their evil.”
Job 36:10 CJB

How does God warn us? Through His word. The more we are in it the more we will realize how He desires us to live! His ways are always going to be best!

“He has shown you, O man, what is good; And what does the LORD require of you But to do justly, To love mercy, And to walk humbly with your God?”
Micah 6:8 CJB

Today, let’s totally walk in the way of Adonai and do life His way!
Have a blessed day!

Be in the light

“Therefore, you are not to give your daughter to their sons or take their daughters for your sons; and you are not to promote their peace or prosperity ever. Only in this way will you grow strong, enjoy the good things of the land and leave it as a lasting inheritance to your children.”
Ezra 9:12 CJB

In other words, we aren’t to mingle with the people of the world or non-believers! The problem we have is we get into business with unsaved people and sadly many young people get into marriages with unsaved people! If you want to be strong, stick with your own tribe of believers! We can enjoy things in the world, but be careful of partnering with it!

“Do not yoke yourselves together in a team with unbelievers. For how can righteousness and lawlessness be partners? What fellowship does light have with darkness?”
2 Corinthians 6:14 CJB

We really need to be careful about being part of a political party, a car club or any other thing that distracts us from God! We need to have a group of believers as our partners!

“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 CJB

Today, realize how important it is for us to be connected to a body of believers, especially as we see the things around us getting even darker!
Have a blessed day!

Step out

“Adonai asked Moshe, Why are you crying to me? Tell the people of Israel to go forward!”
Exodus 14:15 CJB

Often times we all can get caught up in whining and complaining when we just need to suck it up and move forward in Adonai and especially stop dwelling in the past!

“Haven’t I ordered you, ‘Be strong, be bold’? So don’t be afraid or downhearted, because Adonai your God is with you wherever you go.”
Joshua 1:9 CJB

Adonai has taken care of all the details of life, He has conquered our enemies even if we don’t see it yet! What we need to do is just stop crying and step out! Be like Peter. Get out of the boat and walk(Matthew 14:29)!

“They will fight against you, but they will not overcome you, for I am with you, says Adonai, to rescue you.”
Jeremiah 1:19 CJB

Today, don’t get caught up in self-pity or worry, but instead just step out in Adonai and go forward! Don’t look back!
Have a blessed day!
Shabbat Shalom!

Rely upon Adonai

“For I would have been ashamed to ask the king for a detachment of soldiers and horsemen to protect us from enemies along the road, since we had said to the king, The hand of our God is on all who seek Him, for good; but His power and fury is against all who abandon Him.”
Ezra 8:22 CJB

Do we trust God or do we trust the world? We should be ashamed if we are calling on the world for help instead of calling on Adonai, who never leaves us or forsakes us!

“Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we praise the name of Adonai our God.”
Psalm 20:7 CJB

We really need to rely upon Adonai for all our needs! Why? Because Adonai desires us to call upon Him for everything!

“But I will call on God, and Adonai will save me.”
Psalm 55:16 CJB

Today, we need to call on God for all our needs and trust Him for all our protection!
Have a blessed day trusting in Him!
Shabbat Shalom!
