This week's Encouragement

"Blessed be Adonai, because He has heard

the sound of my supplications.

Adonai is my strength and my shield.

My heart trusts in Him, and I was helped.

Therefore my heart leaps for joy,

and I will praise Him with my song.

Adonai is their strength—

a stronghold of salvation for His anointed.

Save Your people, bless Your inheritance,

shepherd them and carry them forever."

- Psalm 28:6-9

With Hanukkah beginning this Thursday evening, we anticipate the blessings that increase each day as we add more candles, more light, and more celebration. In these especially dark times, the world needs more of Yeshua's light. Adonai truly has performed miracles for our ancestors in those days at this time and we can find strength in Him just as they did. If He is able to restore His Temple and the Holy alter within it, He is more than capable of saving His people and shepherding them forever. May we in this season find ever increasing hope in His promises and strength in His Word.
