My Shield

As for God, His way is blameless (Complete or having integrity); The word of the Lord is tested; He is a shield to all who take refuge in Him.
2 Samuel 22:31 NASB

Every word of God is tested; He is a shield to those who take refuge in Him.

Ephesians 6:16 NASB

Jesus, my Rock! Your work is perfect, For all Your ways are just; You are a God of faithfulness and without injustice, Righteous and upright are You, Amen.

Holy Week – Wednesday

Silence. . . . . . .

Not much is written regarding the Wednesday of Holy Week. It has been mentioned that this was the preparation day for the Passover which is Thursday, the day before the week of Unleavened Bread.

‘These are the appointed times of the Lord, holy convocations which you shall proclaim at the times appointed for them. In the first month, on the fourteenth day of the month at twilight is the Lord’s Passover. Then on the fifteenth day of the same month there is the Feast of Unleavened Bread to the Lord; for seven days you shall eat unleavened bread.
Leviticus 23:4‭-‬6 NASB

Jesus sent Peter and John to prepare for Passover:

And Jesus sent Peter and John, saying, “Go and prepare the Passover for us, so that we may eat it.” They said to Him, “Where do You want us to prepare it?” And He said to them, “When you have entered the city, a man will meet you carrying a pitcher of water; follow him into the house that he enters. And you shall say to the owner of the house, ‘The Teacher says to you, “Where is the guest room in which I may eat the Passover with My disciples?” ’ And he will show you a large, furnished upper room; prepare it there.” And they left and found everything just as He had told them; and they prepared the Passover.
Luke 22:8‭-‬13 NASB

Where do you suppose Jesus was during the preparation?

Could Jesus have been with the Father in preparation for His death?

As I’m reading and meditating on Holy Week, I am noticing Jesus emphasizing the things the disciples are going to need. Faith and discernment were two things I noticed Jesus sharing.

Could Jesus have been away praying for His disciples?

🌹Jesus knew where to go in His despair. He has shown us where to go also. Jesus is our Advocate. He knew what lay ahead for His disciples then and for His disciples now. Jesus knows what lies before us and He preps us by the blessing of His word and prayer. Thank You, Jesus.

The Therefore

Practice these things and you will not stumble“: 2 Peter 1:10

Now for this very reason also, applying all diligence, in your faith supply moral excellence (virtue), and in your moral excellence (virtue), knowledge,
2 Peter 1:5‭ NASB

Applying all diligence! The New Testament for Everyone says, “you should strain every nerve”. Our faith is fragile. Faith isn’t a one time decision, it is a constant that needs nourished. Nourished with truths that distinguish right and wrong so we can express and convey right conduct, walk in righteousness. Jesus is our righteousness and His divine power has granted to us everything pertaining to life and godliness, through the true knowledge of Him who called us by His own glory and excellence. Christ Himself, in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.
2 Peter 1:3/Colossians 2:3 NASB

Apply the Word of God. God’s word is the moral compass of moral virtue. In the Word of God is the knowledge of the righteousness of Christ. I believe that God’s word has the power to transform our moral compass and fill us with the knowledge of Jesus Christ. To know Him is to love Him.

🌹Are you diligently reading God’s word on a daily basis?

Good and Blessed

He who gives attention to the word will find good, And blessed is he who trusts in the Lord.
Proverbs 16:20 NASB

One thing I ask of the Lord before opening His word, the sword of the Spirit, is for wisdom and understanding. I do this so, as I feast on God’s Word, I am able to taste and see that the Lord is good, attaining wisdom for the love of my soul and that through understanding I can do good. The Word is for life. Food, guidance, peace, contentment, understanding of the ways of life. Let me encourage you to be in the Word of God daily. For your good and God’s glory.
Ephesians 6:17b/Jeremiah 17:7/Psalms 34:8/Proverbs 19:8 NASB

🌹How sweet are Your words to my taste! Yes, sweeter than honey to my mouth!

1 John 2:12-14

I am writing to you, little children, because your sins have been forgiven you for His name’s sake. I am writing to you, fathers, because you know Him who has been from the beginning. I am writing to you, young men, because you have overcome the evil one. I have written to you, children, because you know the Father. I have written to you, fathers, because you know Him who has been from the beginning. I have written to you, young men, because you are strong, and the word of God abides in you, and you have overcome the evil one.
1 John 2:12‭-‬14 NASB

🌹God of all creation,  praise and glory to Your name for sending Jesus, Your Son. I was found as a child needing milk when Jesus found me, washed me, sanctified me and justified me!! Hallelujah I have been forgiven in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and in the Spirit of my God. I know the Father because I know the Son and keep His commandments! Hallelujah!!!
As I grow in faith and encounter tribulation in the world, I shall experience peace knowing You, Jesus, have overcome the world. I will endure, overcoming the evil one because I will be strong in the strength of Your might.
I want to grow to full maturity believing in what was from the beginning, and by what I have experienced concerning the Word of Life. Your Word fully abiding in me. Prepare me to bow before Your heavenly throne unashamed Lord my God. In the perfect name of Jesus I pray, amen.

Treasured Word

My foot has held fast to His path; I have kept His way and not turned aside. I have not departed from the command of His lips; I have treasured the words of His mouth more than my necessary food.
Job 23:11‭-‬12 NASB

🌹Lord God of Your Word. God of truth. Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path. As I receive instruction from Your mouth, establish Your words in my heart that my heart will not turn back, and my steps will not deviate from Your way. How sweet are Your words to my taste! Yes, sweeter than honey to my mouth! It would still bring me comfort, and I would leap for joy, even in unrelenting pain, that I have not denied the words of the Holy One. God, I ask that You establish Your word to me, Your servant, as that which produces reverence for You. In Jesus name I pray. Amen

Attention to the Word – Part 2

And blessed is he who trusts in the Lord.
Proverbs 16:20b NASB

Where does trust come from? Isn’t trust built in relationships by spending time and getting to know someone? We are instructed to trust in the Lord.

Trust in the Lord with all your heart And do not lean on your own understanding.
Proverbs 3:5 NASB

But where does trust in the Lord come from? It comes from knowing Jesus. And how do we come to the knowledge of Jesus? Through the word of God.

Your word is a lamp to my feet And a light to my path.
Psalms 119:105 NASB

Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord And whose trust is the Lord.
Jeremiah 17:7 NASB

Blessed is the one who not only trusts IN the Lord but whose trust IS the Lord!!
Wow!!

🌹Lord God, I want to taste Your words and know their sweetness. May Your words be sweeter than honey to my mouth. As I taste I ask for wisdom and understanding and surrender to Your will in full trust of who You are and whose I am. In Jesus name, amen.
(Psalms 119:103 NASB)

Written For Us

For whatever was written in earlier times was written for our instruction, so that through perseverance and the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope. Now may the God who gives perseverance and encouragement grant you to be of the same mind with one another according to Christ Jesus, so that with one accord you may with one voice glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Romans 15:4‭-‬6 NASB

🌹Are you disheartened, discouraged, feel like giving up? The word of God was written for our instruction. Within the pages of your Bible you’ll find hope so that you may persevere and be encouraged.
What’s stopping you?

Lord God, draw us to Your holy Word for the hope we need. In the perseverance and encouragement you give help us to be of the same mind with one another, the mind of Christ, so that we may use it to be glory to You, our God and Father.  Amen

Power of The Word

The prophet who has a dream may relate his dream, but let him who has My word speak My word in truth. What does straw have in common with grain?” declares the Lord. “Is not My word like fire?” declares the Lord, “and like a hammer which shatters a rock?
Jeremiah 23:28‭-‬29 NASB

The Word spoken rightly, in truth is powerful! The Word of God is like fire, all consuming everywhere it spreads.
The Word of God shatters, destroying falsehood, lies, deception.

If you have God’s word speak His truth. Someone needs to hear.

🌹Jesus is the Word. (John 1:14).
for our God is a consuming fire.
Hebrews 12:29 NASB
