Week 4 of our Walls of Jericho fast – breakthroughs …
By Les’a Cole
During these days of Tshuva (season of repentance), we’ve have seen the enemy attack where we are the weakest. But YHVH is with us; we will not fear!
As 1 John 4:4 reminds us “Greater is He Who is in us than he who is in the world [& would attempt to destroy us]” – Hallelu-YAH! But YHVH! People told me about miracles: some huge and some smaller: each was orchestrated by our Heavenly Father.
We only have 6 more days until Yom Tru’ah. Let’s continue to press in – let us not grow faint-hearted! Yeshua’s instruction just before He ascended: “… teach them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.” Matt 28:20 ESV
Throughout Scripture, we are encouraged to be strong – of courage – to not be faint-hearted. Isaiah 35:4b-6a wonderfully encourages that God will come with vengeance and will save us … and miracles will happen.
“Be strong and unafraid! … He will come and save you.”
Then the eyes of the blind will be opened, and the ears of
the deaf will be unstopped; then the lame man will leap like
a deer, and the mute person’s tongue will sing. For in the
desert, springs will burst forth…” Is 35:4b-6a CJB
Be strong & of good courage (Josh 1:6), because YHVH is with us!
חֲזַק וֶעֱמָ ץ כִּ י יהוה אִ יתָ נוּ
chah-zhak veh’eh-mahtz, kee YHVH ee-tah-noo!
There are cracks in the walls the enemy has erected around our lives – BUT YHVH is breaking through. We’re hearing and seeing breakthroughs. “Thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ,” 1Cor 15:57 ESV.
Let us continue to pray next week, for our country. In spite of all the negativity, we see or hear, let us remember that He promises “If My people, who bear My name, will humble themselves, pray, seek My face and turn from their evil ways, I will hear from heaven, forgive their sin and heal their land,” 2 Chron 7:14.
I am thankful YHVH doesn’t say that all citizens must pray – He states that IF HIS people will humble themselves that HE will heal the land. As you and I, turn from our ways that are displeasing to YHVH, we pray, and seek Him, then HE WILL heal our land.
“Precious Father! Thank You for allowing us to see Your hand intervening in the situations for which we are praying. Help us to not be faint-hearted but continue to press in. We continue praying for those desperate situations in our families and friends. We also pray for You to heal our land. Bring peace to our country. For our soldiers and believers. Expose those with evil intent. Bring Your peace to Israel & to our country. In the holy Name of our Messiah, b’shem Yeshua. Amen.”
