Having Shalom with Yah

I was reading this book lately and I liked what it said about having peace with the Most High. So I’m going to share this except with you of what I have been reading:

Yah gave Aharon and his sons this special blessing to pronounce on the people of Ysrayl to remind them of Yah’s care for them. This blessing, recorded in Numbers 6:24-26, shows that Yah wants to give us His peace, we simply must receive it.

“May the Most High bless you and protect you. May Yah smile on you and be gracious to you. May Yah show you his favor and give you his peace.”

We cannot escape the concerns of this world (at least 6 days a week) but  we can experience Yah’s peace in the midst of our troubles. Isaiah 26:3 is a wonderful promise for us to claim:

“You will keep in perfect peace all who trust in you, whose thoughts are fixed on you!”

Peace is a choice. Philippians 4:6-7 tells us that we will experience the Most High’s peace when we trust Him with all of our needs.

“Don’t worry about anything. Instead, pray about everything. Tell Yah what you need and thank Him for all He has done. If you do this, you will experience Yah’s peace, which is far more wonderful than the human mind can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Messiyah Yahoshua.”

David must have often feared for his safety as he encountered enemies at every turn but he learned how to allow Yah’s peace to flow over him and fill him so that he could rest secure in Yah’s loving arms. He wrote in Psalm 4:8:

“I will lie down in peace and sleep, for you alone O Yah will keep me safe.”

For months, David had been harassed in the palace and then chased through the desert by King Shaul. Later, during his reign as king, David faced a host of enemies, both from outside Ysrayl’s borders and from within. Eventually, even his own sons Abishalom and Adoniyah tried to overthrow him. He could have been paralyzed with fear. But instead, David was filled with peace, confident in his relationship with his loving heavenly Father. He wrote that he could “lie down in peace and sleep” because he knew Yah would protect him.

You, like David, may be surrounded by enemies who are intent on causing you great harm. Perhaps even loved ones have turned against you. And, if you’re honest, you might have to admit that sleep has not come easily at night, with anxieties and fears filling your dreams. You may even fear for your life.

If so, check out David’s cure for insomnia—his recipe for sleeping “in peace.” The secret? David focused his attention on his Master instead of on his situation, remembering Yah’s power and love. And he prayed about his circumstances and his worries.

David knew that lasting peace comes from Yah alone. HalleluYAH. I hope this post helps someone but I do not know who, Yah did not reveal that to me…

Be merciful to me, O Yah, be merciful to me! For my soul trusts in You. And in the shadow of Your wings I will make my refuge, until these calamities have passed by. I will cry out to Yah Most High, to Yah who performs all things for me. He shall send from heaven and save me. He reproaches the one who would swallow me up. Selah. HalleluYah. Psalm 57:1-3

Update: My family member is doing much better. She had 90% blockage in her coronary artery (a stent was placed in her artery). She will be on medication for the rest of her life…or until an Israylite is able to heal her…..Thanks for your prayers. AshantiYah

Fat

When I was out exercising this morning, I was thinking about something. Do y’all remember that Yah had us Israylites on a “diet”? I say “diet” for the lack of a better word. We ate mostly manna and water (ahem and the occasional quail). He was weening us off Egyptian food, disciplining us and teaching us to depend on Him. But I just read in Nehemiyah 9:25 where He says that the Israylites grew fat again once we got into the land. The food was abundant there. Will Yah ween us away from Babylon food? (Rhetorical)

I have a close family member who is very sick right now. Please pray to Yah with me that she be healed.  Please pray with me for Yah to have mercy upon her.

Praise Yah

Oh, send out Your light and Your truth! Let them lead me. Let them bring me to Your Set-apart hill and to Your tabernacle. HalleluYah. Psalm 43:3.

Shabbat Shalom y’all. I bought a box of cards about a month ago to pass out to the local Hebrews that I meet. Click on the image to read the card. The image above is the front of the card. Do you like the card? Is there anything I should add or change?

This is the back of the card. Click on the image to read it.  I was going to print up flyers but I notice that people quickly throw flyers away and are slow(er) to throw away cards (well speaking for myself). I tend to hold on to cards that are given to me. Also I’m probably going to get brochures made for the blessedwomanofyah site so that it is easier for first time readers to navigate. HalleluYAH. #marketing

 

Seeing Yah at Work

If you humbly ask Yah to open your eyes, you will see Yah at work all around you. Psalm 69:32 states, ‘The humble will see their Father at work and be glad. Let all who seek Yah’s help live in joy.’

Yah reveals His plans to us by His Set-Apart Spirit. Shaul, in First Corinthians 2:10 taught us that we can ask Yah to reveal Himself and His work to us. ‘But we know these things because Yah has revealed them to us by His Spirit and His Spirit searches out everything and shows us even Yah’s deep secrets.
