Follow the LORD

” Will they cry to Me, We are Israel, God, we know You!”

Hosea 8:2 CJB

Unfortunately, there are many people out there who claim to be believers, but live a very worldly life style! We are not to judge them, but instead we are to live whole heartedly for Jesus and let them see the way that they should go and be careful of doing the same thing!

“Not everyone who says to me, ‘LORD,LORD!’ will enter the Kingdom of Heaven, only those who do what my Father in heaven wants.”

Matthew 7:21 CJB

We need to be careful of saying things that just sound good, we actually need to do good! We need to be mindful about worldly traps!

“Don’t deceive yourselves by only hearing what the Word says, but do it!”

James 1:22 CJB

Today, let’s really get out there and represent the LORD! Telling people about Jesus and doing things to glorify Him! Have a blessed day in Him!

The LORD is our strength

“Foreigners have eaten up his strength, but he doesn’t know it; yes, gray hairs appear on him here and there, but he doesn’t know it.”

Hosea 7:9 CJB

This can and does happen to us, life has a tendency to suck all the strength out of us! The enemy likes to keep us distracted and busy with our daily routine!

“Adonai is my strength and shield; in Him my heart trusted, and I have been helped. Therefore my heart is filled with joy, and I will sing praises to Him.”

Psalm 28:7 CJB

Even though the world can drain us of strength and wear us out, remember, the LORD is our strength and He is always there for us!

“For you have been a refuge for me, a tower of strength in the face of the foe.”

Psalm 61:3 CJB

Today, even though the world may be eating us up and draining all our strength, remember, the LORD is our strength and He is our shield, we have nothing to fear! So have a blessed day being refreshed by the LORD!

The LORD is with us!

“Ya’akov(Jacob) awoke from his sleep and said, Truly, Adonai is in this place-and I didn’t know it!”

Genesis 28:16 CJB

Often times when we go out into the day we can lose track of the fact that the LORD is right there with us! We can be asleep at the wheel, so to speak.

“Desist, and learn that I am God, supreme over the nations, supreme over the earth. Adonai-Tzva’ot is with us, our fortress, the God Ya’akov(Jacob).”

Psalm 46:10-11 CJB

So even if things around us look rough or impossible, even if we can’t see the LORD working, know that He is!

“Furthermore, we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called in accordance with purpose.”

Romans 8:28 CJB

Today, realize, even if we don’t see it happening, know that the LORD is doing great things!

Have a blessed day!

Shabbat Shalom.

Life has issues

“Come, let us return to Adonai; for He has torn, and He will heal us; He has struck, and He will bind our wounds.”

Hosea 6:1 CJB

Hurtful, painful and distressful things happen. That’s just part of living in a sinful world! As we go through these situations it should help us grow in the LORD as He is the only one who can bind and heal the wounds of life!

“Be gracious to me, Adonai, because I am withering away; heal me, Adonai, because my bones are shaking.”

Psalm 6:2 CJB

While we go through the issues of life, it puts us in a position to continuously call on the LORD and go deeper in Him!

“Make your face shine on your servant; in your grace, save me.”

Psalm 31:16 CJB

Today, as we go through the issues of life, take comfort knowing the LORD is right there with! Have a blessed day looking to the LORD!

Shabbat Shalom

Seek the LORD

“I will go and return to my place, till they admit their guilt and search for Me, seeking Me eagerly in their distress.”

Hosea 5:15 CJB

The LORD is always there for us no matter how bad we think we’ve blown it! All we have to do is call!

“I call on Adonai, who is worthy of praise; and I am saved from my enemies.”

Psalm 18:4 CJB

When we get into situations, difficult times, the LORD always answers us when we call! When we fail and fall into sin, all we have to do is call out to the LORD, repent, and He forgives! Remember, our biggest enemy is sin!

“If we acknowledge our sins, then, since He is trustworthy and just, He will forgive Them and purify us from all wrongdoing.”

1 John 1:9 CJB

Today, no matter what our situation is, let’s eagerly seek the LORD. He is always there waiting for us to call and talk to Him! Have a blessed day seeking the LORD!
