“Some of the heads of fathers clans, when they came to the house of Adonai in Yerushalayim, made voluntary offerings for rebuilding the house of God on its site.”
Ezra 2:68 CJB

How much and how often do we voluntarily give to Adonai? Or do we just give the bare minimums? The more we give, praying, serving and money, the more God’s kingdom will grow!

“Give Adonai His due, you who are godly; give Adonai His due glory and strength.”
Psalm 29:1 CJB

No matter how we look at it, we need to be giving everything we can to God! Why? Because He has given us everything! The biggest thing is we are not going to spend eternity in hell, but instead we get to spend eternity dwelling with Adonai!

“On that day you will say, Give thanks to Adonai! Call on His name! Make His deeds known among the peoples, declare how exalted is His name.”
Isaiah 12:4 CJB

What day? Everyday, because it is a gift from God! So today, let’s willingly give God all our praise, all the glory and all the thanks we can give!
Have a blessed day!
Shabbat Shalom!

Call to God

“Here is what Koresh(Cyrus) king of Persia says: Adonai, the God of heaven, has given me all the kingdoms on earth; and he has charged me to build Him a house in Yerushalayim, in Y’hudah.”
Ezra 1:2 CJB

In other words, God is in control of all things and it is He who can give or take away! Here we see the king of Persia, Cyrus, acknowledging that!

“The earth is Adonai’s, with all that is in it, the world and those who live there.”
Psalm 24:1 CJB

All things belong to God, which means we also belong to Him! This is why we should worship Him and give Him glory for all things! Also we need to call out to Him for direction in everything we do!

“Bless our God, you peoples! Let the sound of His praise be heard!”
Psalm 66:8 CJB

Today, let’s be all about praising God! Why? Because everything belongs to Him and we get to be part of His glorious kingdom!
Have a blessed day praising God!

Be a messenger for God

“Time after time, and frequently, Adonai, the God of their ancestors, sent word to them through His messengers; because He had compassion on His people and on the place where He lived.”
2 Chronicles 36:15 CJB

God has shown His love and compassion for us also by sending someone into each and everyone’s life to share the hope of salvation through Yeshua!

“He redeems your life from the pit, He surrounds you with grace and compassion.”
Psalm 103:4 CJB

As God has shown us all grace and compassion. We all need to step up and step out and be His messengers to share that same grace and compassion with others!

“Proclaim the Word! Be on hand with it whether the time seems right or not. Convict, censure and exhort with unfailing patience and with teaching.”
2 Timothy 4:2 CJB

Today, as believers, it really is our duty to share the Word with everyone we come in contact with!
Have a blessed day being God’s messengers!

Don’t look like the world!

“Nevertheless, Yoshiyahu(Josiah) was determined to go after him. He disguised himself in order to fight against him and wouldn’t listen to what N’kho said, which was from the mouth of God. Then he went to fight in Meggiddo Valley.”
2 Chronicles 35:22 CJB

Anytime we go against God we find ourselves trying to disguise ourselves by looking like the ordinary world! Here we see as great as king Josiah was in his last act he disguises himself and ends up being killed in a battle, that he had no business being in! We need to be very careful of doing the same thing!

“There archers shot King Yoshiyahu. The king said to his servants, Take me away, because I’m badly wounded.”
2 Chronicles 35:23

The best way to not get wounded by worldly situations is to simply just stay out of them! Don’t disguise yourself by looking like the rest of the world!

“See how the wicked are drawing their bows and setting their arrows on the string, to shoot from the shadows at honest men.”
Psalm 11:2 CJB

Today, remember the wicked world can’t wait to shoot you, so the best thing to do is stay out of worldly conflicts and stay under the wings of Adonai! We all will get attacked by the world, but we will have less chances of being wounded if we stay out of worldly conflicts!
Have a blessed day seeking Adonai!

Wash in the word

“For in the eighth year of his reign, when he was still young, he began seeking after the God of David his father; and in the twelfth year, he began cleansing Y’hudah and Yerushalayim from the high places, the sacred poles, and the carved and cast metal images.”
2 Chronicles 34:3 CJB

The more we seek after God the more we will see the filth in our own lives disappear!

“Seek Adonai and his strength; always seek his presence.”
1 Chronicles 16:11 CJB

The best thing and the most important thing we can do is seek God in everything! Our lives will always be richer and more blessed!

“He fulfills the desire of those who fear Him; He hears their cry and saves them.”
Psalm 145:19 CJB

Today, realize the best thing we can do and should do is seek Adonai!
Have a blessed day being washed in the word of God!
