Comforting Word

L'Chaim Messianic Congregation, Lake Worth Florida, Palm Beaches

Psalm 23 is where we find today’s Scripture that is so comforting! As busy as our schedules are in this hectic world we live in, let’s take time out to reflect on GOD’S comforting word! GOD causes us to lay down and rest, He refreshes and restores our mind, will, and emotions (which make up our soul)! 

What a wonderful promise. The word “restore “ means to bring back into existence and use or to bring back to an original state; to cause to return or to refresh! 

If you have been hurt and your soul has been wounded, you can claim the promise of restoration. 

Psalm 23:3
He restores my soul; He leads me in the paths of righteousness for His name sake.

ABBA FATHER has a plan for our restoration. If we will allow Him to do so, He will guide us by His Holy Spirit along the unique way that leads to healing and wholeness and the ability to fulfill the great purposes He has for our lives! 

Abba, we thank you today for the restoration of our soul and life and for leading us in the way that is right for us, in YESHUA’S Name we pray, Amen!

Blessings,

Adjusting

L'Chaim Messianic Congregation, Lake Worth Florida, Palm Beaches

Our ABBA FATHER desires to be involved in every aspect of our lives. He gives clear direction in His Word so that we can understand what His will is for every circumstance we encounter!

By walking in the center of GOD’S will, we accomplish that which we were created to do.

Inevitably, we also experience life at its best! As imperfect humans, we will not automatically be in GOD’S will,  so we must make an effort to seek His way and live according to biblical precepts.

GOD is immutable! He is not going to change to suit us. That means we must make whatever adjustments are necessary in order to be obedient to His Word!

Colossians 3:1-2
Since you have been raised to new life with MESSIAH, set your sights on the realities of Heaven, where MESSIAH sits in the place of honor at God’s right hand. Think about the things of Heaven, not the things of earth.

GOD directs all believers in the way we are to go because He is perfect in all wisdom and knowledge and always knows what is best for us at all times. Only obedient living makes it possible to attain genuine fulfillment!

Blessings,

A Passionate Heart

L'Chaim Messianic Congregation, Lake Worth Florida, Palm Beaches

We need to discover how to be passionate about the things GOD is passionate about. The Word of GOD teaches us over and over again that we are to help hurting people. Our ABBA FATHER is passionate about helping the widows, the fatherless, the poor, the needy, the oppressed, the hungry, the naked, and the homeless! 

As our Scripture of the day tells us, GOD is looking to and fro for people who will have a heart and compassion for such people. Let’s be one of those people whose heart is seeking after Him and His compassion for the needy! GOD always desires for us to enjoy our life, but He never wants us to forget about the poor, lost, and needy! GOD will put such people in our path, and when He does, let’s find a way to make a difference in their lives. We may not be able to do everything, but we all can do something!

2 Chronicles 16:9A
For the eyes of the Lord runs to and fro throughout the whole earth to show Himself strong on behalf of those whose heart is loyal to Him.

Let our passion be for the things GOD is passionate about! Seek out where you can actively make a difference in someone’s life.

Blessings,

A True Follower

L'Chaim Messianic Congregation, Lake Worth Florida, Palm Beaches

When YESHUA walked this earth, a vast multitude followed Him. They came for many reasons, some noble, some selfish. The same is still true today. Not all that seek GOD are really His followers!

Let’s take a look at our own walk and ask ourselves, “What do we want from Him?” How committed are we to being His disciples?

In the Bible, some followed YESHUA because they had urgent needs that He alone could meet. Some wanted to see signs and miracles and feel that thrill of excitement.

Today, some go to their congregation only to get pumped up. 

However, mountaintop experiences are usually followed by valleys! Then when hardships come, they are quick to abandon the LORD!

John 6:2

A huge crowd kept following Him wherever He went, because they saw His miraculous signs as He healed the sick.

Are you more interested in what YESHUA can do for you than in just being with Him?

Do you find it hard to stay committed without an emotional experience to sustain you? 

Our physical and emotional needs can draw us to the LORD, but they should never be the foundation for our walk with Him!

Being Still

L'Chaim Messianic Congregation, Lake Worth Florida, Palm Beaches

Temptations, trials and suffering—we’ve all experienced them! Even as Messiah followers (sometimes especially because we’re believers), we must endure pain whether through loss, bankruptcy, unemployment or broken relationships!

While no one is immune to hard times, believers are empowered through the Holy Spirit to endure them. 

Our verse today tells us to “Be still” and know who GOD is! This indicates that our best response to disappointments is to trust in the LORD! 

When troubles come (and they will come), it’s really easy to get caught up in our emotions, but we need to be wise in the Word of GOD and learn to be still, trust, and wait on the One who can work it all out for our good (Rom. 8:28)! 

Psalm 46:10
Be still, and know that I am GOD. I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.

While on this earth, troubles won’t ever vanish (John 16:33)! But when storms are brewing on the horizon, buckle up and trust GOD to guide you through!
