Listen to the LORD

“Indeed, nothing is hidden, except to be disclosed; and nothing is covered up, except to come out into the open.”
Mark 4:22 CJB

The LORD doesn’t want us to be in the dark, He wants us to be informed and have understanding. He does want us to be in His light!

“Those who have ears to hear with, let them hear!”
Mark 4:23 CJB

Not only does the LORD want us to see and understand, He desires us to hear and know! Unfortunately we think we know without a lot of hearing!
We can’t just take in His word, read a devotion or listen to a sermon and do nothing! We really need to take in His word and do what He says!

“Don’t deceive yourselves by only hearing what the Word says, but do it!”
James 1:22 CJB

The LORD gives us plenty of information on what to do and what not to do in His word! We just need to take it in and do what He says!

“Your word is a lamp for my foot and light on my path.”
Psalm 119:105 CJB

Today, we may not know all the details on everything, but the LORD gives us light to know and to do what He desires us to do!
Have a blessed day being directed by the LORD!

Don’t judge

“Whoever does what God wants is My brother, sister and mother.”
Mark 3:35 CJB

In other words, those who love Yeshua (Jesus) are our brothers, sisters and mothers; they are our family! We don’t always agree or even get along, but what unites us is Yeshua (Jesus)!

“Proclaim with me the greatness of Adonai; let us exalt His name together.”
Psalm 34:3 CJB

As believers, we will always be way better off when we are united in the LORD and His ways, not ours or our opinions!

“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

Today, let’s be focused on the LORD and not on what others say and do! We all can be guilty of being cynical, critiquing and even judgmental of other believers! So be careful of over analyzing other believers!
Have a blessed day loving each other in the LORD!

Praise the LORD

“Moshe and Aharon did all these wonders before Pharaoh, but Adonai has made Pharaoh hardhearted, and he didn’t let the people of Israel leave his land.”
Exodus 11:10 CJB

God does all kinds of wonders daily, the sun rises, the moon shines and flowers bloom to name a few! But, yet the world still is hard hearted towards God.

“Sing to Him, sing praises to Him! Talk about all His wonders.”
1 Chronicles 16:9 CJB

Even though we live in a world full of hard hearted people, that shouldn’t stop us from praising the LORD!

“So I will remind myself of Yah’s doings; yes I will remember your wonders of old.”
Psalm 77:11 CJB

Today, the world is getting increasingly harder hearted towards God and it can get our blood pressure up, but instead let’s remember the great things the LORD has already done! Let’s share His good works and sing His praises today!
Have a blessed day!
Shabbat Shalom!

Rest

“Then he said to them, Shabbat was made for mankind, not mankind for Shabbat; So the Son of Man is LORD even of Shabbat.”
Mark 2:27 CJB

The LORD wants us to have a Sabbath day not to burden us, but instead to free us from our normal activities and to have a special day of rest in Him.

“I gave them My Shabbats as a sign between Me and them, so that they would know that I Adonai, am the one who makes them holy.”
Ezekiel 20:12 CJB

Our LORD really wants to have a relationship with us, unfortunately what happens is we get sucked into day to day life! Shabbat, helps us to reset and reconnect with the LORD!

“My soul, return to Your rest! For Adonai has been generous toward you.”
Psalm 116:7 CJB

Today, with all the crazy stuff going on in the world, we all can use some rest in the LORD and resetting ourselves isn’t a bad idea either!
Have a blessed day!
Shabbat Shalom.

Living for God

“The time has come, God’s Kingdom is near! Turn to God from your sins and believe the Good News!”
Mark 1:15 CJB

The Kingdom of God is rapidly coming and we all need to be turning to God and sharing His Good News!

“I will proclaim Your name to my kinsmen; right there in the assembly I will praise you:”
Psalm 22:22 CJB

We really are very close to going home to be in God’s Kingdom and what we need to be doing is sharing His Good News, praising Him no matter where we are at!

“Turn from your sins to God, for the Kingdom of Heaven is near!”
Matthew 3:2 CJB

Yeshua tells us repetitively through the Gospels that the Kingdom of Heaven is coming! We, as believers, need to take that seriously! We need to be looking for it and sharing with folks how to get there, repenting and receiving the free gift of salvation!
Have a blessed day!
