Judah Family in Oklahoma

A bit late on this, but wanted to share.  I didn’t realize until last night that Monte Judah’s wife, Linda, passed away on December 21st.  She was only 60 years old.  Monte and Linda founded Lion and Lamb Ministries in Norman, Oklahoma.  Please pray for this family in their time of grief.

May the Supreme Comforter give you shalom, Monte, Ann, Ephraim and family.  You are loved by your brothers and sisters in Messiah.

Fear and Awe

Let all the earth fear AdonaiLet all living in the world stand in awe of him.  For he spoke, and there it was; he commanded, and there it stood. Adonai brings to nothing the plans of nations, he foils the plans of the peoples.  But the counsel of Adonai stands forever, his heart’s plans are for all generations.  How blessed is the nation whose God is Adonai, the people he chose as his heritage!

Adonai looks out from heaven; he sees every human being; from the place where he lives he watches everyone living on earth, he who fashioned the hearts of them all and understands all they do.

A king is not saved by the size of his army, a strong man not delivered by his great strength.  To rely on a horse for safety is vain, nor does its great power assure escape. But Adonai’s eyes watch over those who fear him, over those who wait for his grace to rescue them from death and keep them alive in famine.

We are waiting for Adonai; he is our help and shield.  For in him our hearts rejoice, because we trust in his holy name.  May your mercy, Adonai, be over us, because we put our hope in you.  ~~ Psalm 33: 8-22    

What Lies Ahead?

New Year’s Day on our Gregorian calendar is a time when people talk of new beginnings and hope for a chance to start over in some way.  I am thinking how exciting it will be to see what Elohim has in store for 2018, to eagerly anticipate watching His plans unfold, and to live in the midst of that wonder each day!

Abba, I trust You.  I can’t wait to see what You are going to do in our lives this year.  May Your Name be glorified in every moment!
