March 14, 2021: Rosh Chodesh Tov - Prepare for PESACH!
ראש חודש ניסן מבורך, ראש חודשים הרבה ברכות לכולנו, אמן!!!
A very BLESSED NEW Beginning of MONTHS / ROSH CHODESHIM!!🎉
As we celebrate ROSH CHODESH and begin a NEW MONTH tonight, we look to the new PESACH SEASON (Passover) that is fast approaching, in two week's time!
NOW is the time to begin PREPARING OURSELVES for this NEW SEASON that we'll be heading into.
During this time of preparation, we are not only to begin the process of REMOVING LEAVEN from our homes, but removing leaven FROM OUR HEARTS.
We need to have EYES to SEE and EARS to HEAR what the RUACH HA'KODESH (Holy Spirit) is saying to us.
It's a time to remind ourselves about the amazing way in which the LORD brought DELIVERANCE for HIS people from slavery in Egypt!
And in so doing, it's important for us to remember that we serve an AWESOME GOD, WHO NEVER CHANGES!!
HE IS THE SAME YESTERDAY, TODAY AND FOREVER MORE!!!
THEREFORE, just as HE brought deliverance for His people, back then, HE IS MORE THAN CAPABLE OF BRINGING FORTH DELIVERANCE INTO OUR LIVES TODAY!!!
"So shall they FEAR The NAME of the LORD from the west, And HIS GLORY from the rising of the sun; When the enemy comes in like a flood, The SPIRIT of the LORD will lift up a standard against him. “The REDEEMER will come to ZION, And to those who TURN FROM transgression in JACOB,” Says the LORD." ISAIAH 59:19-20 NKJV
For when the enemy comes in like a flood, The LORD RAISES UP A STANDARD AGAINST him, and WINS the BATTLE for us!
HE ALWAYS makes a WAY where there seems to be no way, and ALWAYS PROVIDES a way of escape!
This is what He also did for King David when he fought against the Amalekites in 1 Samuel 30!
GOD restored to David ALL that he had lost!!
"So David RECOVERED ALL that the Amalekites had taken, AND RESCUED his two wives." (1 Samuel 30:18 TLV)
GOD has PROVEN HIMSELF FAITHFUL to HIS PEOPLE, OVER and OVER AGAIN!!
Stories of God's faithfulness and redemptive work is all over the Bible!
And I'm sure that when you look back in your own lives, YOU can SEE GOD’S HAND of protection, provision, redemption upon YOUR LIFE too!!
What an awesome GOD we serve!!
May we NEVER forget the way that the LORD has proven His faithfulness towards us!
So make sure to take the time TODAY to REFLECT on GOD'S GOODNESS towards YOU!
And let's PREPARE OUR HEARTS for this new season we are entering into, starting TONIGHT!
As King David wrote this Psalm, let it be our prayer, before the LORD tonight:
"SEARCH me, O GOD, and KNOW my heart; TRY me, and know MY ANXIETIES; And SEE if there is ANY wicked way IN me, and LEAD me in the WAY EVERLASTING."
Psalms 139:23-24 NKJV
AMEN AND AMEN! 🙏🙏🙏
