God’s Way Is the Best Way

Encouraging Words with Pastor Bruce & Suzi Elman

Decisions—they are constantly before us! You probably have decisions presently on your plate – some may be minor & some major! Regardless of size, they will impact your life and also the lives of others.

When it comes to choices, we need to pray and ask GOD what He has to say about it. GOD clearly says in His Word (Psalm 25) that He desires to lead our life and always wants to help us make the best choices!

One thing you can be sure of, GOD will never direct you to make a choice that is contrary to His Word. The Bible is the ultimate “road atlas” ever printed! The choice He wants for you is one that will lead to life and will have His fingerprints of peace all over it!

Psalm 25:4-5 “Show me Your ways, O Lord; teach me Your paths. Lead me in Your truth & teach me, for You are the God of my salvation; on You I wait all the day.”

Abba leads us gently; He never pushes or pressures us to do anything. His yoke is easy; His burden is light (Matt. 11:30).

Blessings,

In Yeshua’s wonderful matchless name,

God’s Realm

Encouraging Words with Pastor Bruce & Suzi Elman

“The wonderful thing about praying is that you leave a world of not being able to do something and enter God’s realm where everything is possible.

He specializes in the impossible. Nothing is too great for His almighty power. Nothing is too small for His love.”

—Corrie Ten Boom

A Tool for Love

Encouraging Words with Pastor Bruce & Suzi Elman

There is no one who doesn’t want to be loved, and GOD makes Himself known through His love! This is a good reason to know how important it is to the heart of GOD for us to focus on expressing His love as we are ambassadors for MESSIAH to draw others to YESHUA!

This is such an amazing truth that we are YESHUA’S personal representatives here on earth, and He is making His appeal to the lost through us.

Everyone in this dark, fallen world is looking for genuine love. And when we let the love of GOD flow through us, we are representing MESSIAH in the best way possible! 

Let the Holy Spirit guide you as you go out and encounter people in your sphere of influence, and show all the fruit of the Spirit—patience, kindness, goodness, love, just to name a few!

2 Corinthians 3:2
You yourselves are our letter of recommendation (our credentials), written in your hearts, to be known (perceived and recognized) and read by everybody.                  

Remember, everywhere you go today, you are representing YESHUA  to the people around you! Let’s do it with love!

Love Them Anyhow

Encouraging Words with Pastor Bruce & Suzi Elman

As believers, we must learn to get along with one another! We are going to have to learn to put up with some things we do not like. All the people around us everyday are not going to think, speak or act the way we might want them to!

But letting offenses go is part of what we must do as members of the body of MESSIAH! Not everyone is going to be or do what we want, but we can love them anyway! 

We must have a “holy fear” of pride and be very careful of judging others and of being critical of them.      

Galatians 6:2-3
Bear one another’s burdens and so fulfill the law of MESSIAH. For if anyone thinks himself to be something when he is nothing, he deceives himself.                              

So when we look at those around us today, let’s keep in mind that they too were created in GOD’S image, the same as you and I. 

As the Scripture today instructs us, we are to bear one another’s burdens as though they were our own! What can you do today for a fellow sister or brother in the LORD who may be hurting?

Selective Hearing

Encouraging Words with Pastor Bruce & Suzi Elman

Through MESSIAH and the power of the Holy Spirit, GOD wants to speak to us on a one-on-one basis everyday! He wants to lead us step-by-step to the good things He has in store for us! He cares about the tiniest details of our lives. He even keeps track of how many hairs we have on our head (Matt. 10:30).

But sometimes we choose to turn a deaf ear to what we know the LORD is clearly saying to us. We only hear what we want to hear! You could call that “selective hearing.” 

We desperately need to get in His presence in prayer and mediation of His Word spending time with Him and then take the time to be still so He can speak to us! He is ready to fill your heart with His thoughts and the goals He has for you to live a victorious life in MESSIAH 

John 2:5
His mother said to the servants, “Whatever He says to you, do it.”                         

When GOD created us, He gave us two ears and one mouth; there was a reason! Let this be the day you start listening to that still, small voice (the Holy Spirit, who dwells in us). Abundant blessings will follow!
