Every Preparation Day (Friday before Shabbat) we busy ourselves rushing to ready our homes and meal for Shabbat. We're often so busy that we can lose sight of the purpose and blessings of Shabbat. A couple of years ago I got into the habit of prayerfully reading the Tehillim each day. It has truly blessed my life. Within those songs are strength, comfort, peace, and rejoicing. They are a reminder to us that no matter what is going on in our lives that The Eternal watches over us. I hope that sometime during your busy Preparation Day that you will take some time with the Tehillim. It is with this in mind that I have started this blog, which are insights into each song, posted every Friday morning. Shabbat Shalom!

Adonai sits enthroned above the flood!
Adonai sits enthroned as king forever!
May Adonai give strength to his people!
May Adonai bless his people with shalom! vs. 10-11
There is no other like our God. He is the Creator of all things and judge of all the earth. We read of his great and mighty deeds; but do we believe in our heart of hearts that He is the same today as He was yesterday? The last three years of my life I have seen many miracles performed on my behalf and on the behalf of others. In a world that has become drunk on torahlessness, and wants nothing to do with Him, mocks everything and everyone having to do with our God, and the extreme wickedness that prevails, it is not difficult to see that we are edging very quickly towards the judgement He will bring. No matter how hopeless the situation, no mater what you see happening around, hang on to the Eternal and His everlasting arms. He has, does, and will continue to save those who follow Him, keep His commandments and have the testimony of Messiah Yeshua. Revelation 14:12
I am reminded of Deuteronomy 33:29:
Happy are you, Isra’el!
“Who is like you, a people saved by Adonai,
your defender helping you
and your sword of triumph?
Your enemies will cringe before you,
but you will trample down their high places.”
We are the sheep of His pasture. Listen to the voice of your shepherd, follow Him, and obey Him in all things. If you are going through difficulties, no matter what the situation, remember you serve the Creator of the universe. The righteous are rewarded; there is, after all, a God who judges the earth. Psalm 58:12 He sees your affliction and He will rescue you from all danger and snares of the enemy.
Shabbat shalom in the name of Yeshua our Messiah!
Listen to me, you who follow after righteousness, you who seek Yahweh: look to the rock whence you were hewn, and to the hole of the pit whence you were dug. Look to Abraham your father, and to Sarah who bore you; for when he was but one I called him, and I blessed him, and made him many.
