MY ROCK - Shevat 30, 5774

The righteous shall flourish like a palm tree,
He shall grow like a cedar in Lebanon.
Those who are planted in the house of the LORD
Shall flourish in the courts of our God.
They shall still bear fruit in old age;
They shall be fresh and flourishing,
To declare that the LORD is upright;
He is my rock, and
There is no unrighteousness in Him.

PSALM 92:12-15

I have overcome the world."

REWARD - Shevat 28, 5774

"And behold, I am coming quickly,
and My reward is with Me,
to give to every one
according to his work.
I am the Alpha and the Omega,
the Beginning and the End,
the First and the Last."

Good Soldier - Shevat 27, 5774

You therefore must endure hardship
as a good soldier of Jesus Christ.
No one engaged in warfare
entangles himself with the affairs of this life,
that he may please him who
enlisted him as a soldier.
And also
if anyone competes in athletics,
he is not crowned
unless he competes according to the rules.
The hardworking farmer must be
first to partake of the crops.
Consider what I say, and may the Lord
give you understanding in all things.

2 TIMOTHY 2:3-7

Generous Eye - Shevat 26, 5774

He who has a generous eye will be blessed,
For he gives of his bread to the poor.

MADE WELL - Shevat 25, 5774

Wherever He entered,
into villages, cities, or the country,
they laid the sick in the marketplaces,
and begged Him
that they might just touch the hem of His garment.
And as many as touched Him were made well.

MARK 6:56

DRINK - Shevat 24, 5774

On the last day,
that great day of the feast,
Jesus stood and cried out, saying,
'If anyone thirsts,
let him come to Me and drink.
He who believes in Me,
as the Scripture has said,
out of his heart
will flow rivers of living water.'
JOHN 7:37-38

He Sent Them - Shevat 23, 5774

Then He called His twelve disciples together
and gave them power and authority over all demons,
and to cure diseases.
He sent them to preach the kingdom of God
and to heal the sick.
And He said to them,
'Take nothing for the journey,
neither staffs nor bag nor bread nor money;
and do not have two tunics apiece.
Whatever house you enter, stay there,
and from there depart.
And whoever will not receive you,
when you go out of that city,
shake off the very dust from your feet
as a testimony against them.'
So they departed and went through the towns,
preaching the gospel
and healing everywhere.
Luke 9:1-6

ROCK - Shevat 22, 5774

And they did not thirst
when He led them through the deserts;
He caused the waters to flow from the rock for them;
He also split the rock,
and the waters gushed out.
ISAIAH 48:21

"So they went up to Baal Perazim,
and David defeated them there.
Then David said,
'God has broken through my enemies
by my hand like a breakthrough of water.'
Therefore they called the name of that place
Baal Perazim."

I Chronicles 14:11

BEWARE! - Shevat 21, 5774

Beware of false prophets,
who come to you in sheep's clothing,
but inwardly they are ravenous wolves.
You will know them by their fruits.
Do men gather grapes from thornbushes
or figs from thistles?
Even so, every good tree bears good fruit,
but a bad tree bears bad fruit.
A good tree cannot bear bad fruit,
nor can a bad tree bear good fruit.
Every tree that does not bear good fruit
is cut down and thrown into the fire.
Therefore by their fruits you will know them.
MATTHEW 7:15-20

He Breaks up the Storm! - Shevat 20, 5774

He stretches out the north over empty space;
He hangs the earth on nothing.
He binds up the water in His thick clouds,
Yet the clouds are not broken under it.
He covers the face of His throne,
and spreads His cloud over it.
He drew a circular horizon on the face of the waters,
At the boundary of light and darkness.
The pillars of heaven tremble,
And are astonished at His rebuke.
He stirs up the sea with His power,
And by His understanding
He breaks up the storm.




"But I am the LORD your God,
Who divided the sea whose waves roared -
The LORD of hosts is His name."

ISAIAH 51:15


"O LORD God of hosts,
Who is mighty like You, O LORD?
Your faithfulness also surrounds You.
You rule the raging of the sea;
When its waves rise, You still them."
PSALM 89:8-9


"He calms the storm, so that its waves are still."

PSALM 107:29


"Then He arose and rebuked the wind, and said to the sea,
'Peace, be still!'
And the wind ceased and there was a great calm.
But He said to them,
'Why are you so fearful?
How is it that you have no faith?'
And they feared exceedingly,
and said to one another,
'Who can this be, that even the wind and 
the sea obey Him!'"

MARK 4:39-41

To Him Who is Able - Shevat 19, 5774

Now to Him who is able
to keep you from stumbling,
and to present you faultless
before the presence of His glory
with exceeding joy,
To God our Savior,
Who alone is wise,
Be glory and majesty,
Dominion and power,
Both now and forever.

JUDE  24-25

Crooked Places Straight - Shevat 18, 5774

I will go before you
and make the crooked places straight;
I will break in pieces the gates of bronze
and cut the bars of iron.
I will give you the treasures of darkness
and hidden riches of secret places,
that you may know that I, the LORD,
who call you by your name,
Am the God of Israel.

ISAIAH 45:2-3

Come and Eat Breakfast! - Shevat 17, 5774

Then, as soon as they had come to land,
they saw a fire of coals there,
and fish laid on it, and bread.
Jesus said to them,
'Bring some of the fish which you have just caught.'
Simon Peter went up and dragged the net to land,
full of large fish,
one hundred and fifty-three;
and although there were so many,
the net was not broken.
Jesus said to them,
'Come and eat breakfast.'
Yet none of the disciples dared ask Him,
'Who are You?' -
knowing that it was the Lord.
Jesus then came and took the bread
and gave it to them,
and likewise the fish.
John 21:9-13

I Will Call - Shevat 16, 5774

Give ear, O LORD, to my prayer;
And attend to the voice of my supplications.
In the day of my trouble
I will call upon You,
For You will answer me.
PSALM 86:6-7

STOP! - Shevat 15, 5774


Cease from anger, and forsake wrath;

Like Grass - Shevat 14, 5774

As for man, his days are like grass;
As a flower of the field, so he flourishes.
For the wind passes over it, and it is gone,
And its place remembers it no more.
But the mercy of the LORD
is from everlasting to everlasting
On those who fear Him,
And His righteousness to children's children,
To such as keep His covenant,
And to those who remember His commandments
to do them.
PSALM 103:15-18

Wait on the Lord - Shevat 13, 5774

 Have you not known?
Have you not heard?
The everlasting God, the LORD,
The Creator of the ends of the earth,
Neither faints nor is weary.
His understanding is unsearchable.
He gives power to the weak,
And to those who have no might
He increases strength.
Even the youths shall faint and be weary,
And the young men shall utterly fall,
But those who wait on the LORD
Shall renew their strength;
They shall mount up with wings like eagles,
They shall run and not be weary,
They shall walk and not faint.

ISAIAH 40:28-31

LET NOT - Shevat 12, 5774

Thus says the LORD:
'Let not the wise man glory in his wisdom,
Let not the mighty man glory in his might,
Nor let the rich man glory in his riches;
But let him who glories glory in this,
That he understands and knows Me,
That I am the LORD, exercising lovingkindness,
judgment, and righteousness
in the earth.
For in these I delight,' says the LORD.
JEREMIAH 9:23-24

Midst of Trouble - Shevat 11, 5774

Though I walk in the midst of trouble,
You will revive me;
You will stretch out Your hand
Against the wrath of my enemies,
And Your right hand will save me.
PSALM 138:7

BLESSED ARE - Shevat 10, 5774

Blessed are the poor in spirit,
For theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are those who mourn,
For they shall be comforted.
Blessed are the meek,
For they shall inherit the earth.
Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness,
For they shall be filled.
Blessed are the merciful,
For they shall obtain mercy.
Blessed are the pure in heart,
For they shall see God.
Blessed are the peacemakers,
For they shall be called sons of God.
Blessed are those who are
persecuted for righteousness' sake,
For theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are you when they revile and persecute you,
and say all kinds of evil against you
falsely for My sake.
Rejoice and be exceedingly glad,
for great is your reward in heaven,
for so they persecuted the prophets
who were before you.
MATTHEW 5:3-12


Friday, January 10, 2014


God, who at various times and in various ways
spoke in time past to the fathers
by the prophets,
has in these last days
spoken to us by His Son,
whom He has appointed heir of all things,
through whom also
He made the worlds;
who being the brightness of His glory
and the express image of His person, and
upholding all things by the word of His power,
when He had by Himself
purged our sins,
sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high,
having become so much better than the angels,
as He has by inheritance
obtained a more excellent name than they.

MY SERVANT - Shevat 8, 5774

Behold!  My Servant whom I uphold,
My Elect One in whom My soul delights!
I have put My Spirit upon Him;
He will bring forth justice to the Gentiles.
He will not cry out, nor raise His voice,
Nor cause His voice to be heard in the street.
A bruised reed He will not break,
And smoking flax He will not quench;
He will bring forth justice for truth.
He will not fail nor be discouraged,
Till He has established justice in the earth;
And the coastlands shall wait for His law.
ISAIAH 42:1-4
