Most of you out there may be on the go, and so are we at times. In this fast pace life of doing some tend to burn out and even quit or give up whatever it is that they are doing. But on the other end some are weary who are fighting the battle of faith and of life. Make no mistake folks, one thing is evident with weariness, and that is that we all get tired of it all. Never forget that the evil one loves to load more on us. His hope is that we will all give up , get discouraged and never continue our work or our walks for the Messiah.  But we are reminded in the scriptures to do two things in times such as these. Here are some scriptures to meditate on.

Remember that there is good on the other side of every struggle we face

Gal 6:9  And let us not be weary in well doing: for be’ito (in due season) we shall reap, if we faint not.10  As we have therefore opportunity, let us do ma'asim tovim (good  works) unto all men, especially unto them who are of the Beit Ha’Emunah  (household of faith).

 

Remember we can do all things with G-ds help

Php 4:13 I can do all things through Mashiach Yeshua (Christ Jesus) which strengtheneth me.

Sometimes were asked to give account of ourselves. Be it in the work place, in the home, or even in the ministry. Some of us are called to give full disclosure to those who ask, especially to our Messiah. He requires us to respond to him daily with the latest updates. Sometimes were not prepared to answer, and other times we may hide what we don’t want others to see or know. The bible is very clear when it comes to being accountable to our Messiah. There’s really nothing we can hide from the face of our G-d. The simplicity of it is that we must all give account for what we do, and for how we live. No one else can take our place or is responsible for our works or the lack of our works, good deeds or even bad. No, we alone will stand accountable to G-d for all things. Here are some scriptures to meditate on.

All Believers will face the Messiah to give account for their lives

2Co 5:10  Since it is necessary for all of us to be revealed/laid bare for an appearance before the Kisse Din (Judgment Throne) of Mashiach (Messiah), in order that each one of us [individually] may receive recompense for the things done in the basar (flesh), according to his ma'asim (works), whether tov (good) or rah(bad).

The Messiah will reward good deeds

Mat 25:19  After a long time the lord of those servants cometh, and reckoneth with them.20  And so he that had received five talents came and brought other five talents, saying, Lord, thou deliveredst unto me five talents: behold, I have gained beside them five talents more.21  His lord said unto him, Well done, thou good and faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.

 

The Messiah will rewards bad deeds

Mat 25:24  Then he which had received the one talent came and said, Lord, I knew thee that thou art an hard man, reaping where thou hast not sown, and gathering where thou hast not strawed:25  And I was afraid, and went and hid thy talent in the earth: lo, there thou hast that is thine.26  His lord answered and said unto him, Thou wicked and slothful servant, thou knewest that I reap where I sowed not, and gather where I have not strawed:27  Thou oughtest therefore to have put my money to the exchangers, and then at my coming I should have received mine own with usury.28  Take therefore the talent from him, and give it unto him which hath ten talents.29  For unto every one that hath shall be given, and he shall have abundance: but from him that hath not shall be taken away even that which he hath.30  And cast ye the unprofitable servant into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

There are many voices in the world today which can drown out or block the voice of G-ds spirit. But if we seek out People who live in the world, rest assure they will not say nor give us the words of G-d. But yet it is the word of G-d alone which sustains us in a world filled with confusion and darkness. The Shaliach Kefa (apostle Peter) once said to the Messiah in “(Yohanan-Joh 6:68) Lord, to whom shall we go? thou hast the words of eternal life.”

The Messiahs words of eternal life are important for our spiritual and natural preservation. We cannot rely on what we see and hear in the world around us. Though it may sound appealing and drawing to us we are not to trust it. If we turn our hearts and ears fully to G-d we will hear his voice through the Messiah uttering the words of eternal life to sustain, encourage, strengthen and support us. Here are some scriptures to meditate on this week.

 

Those who know his word hear and recognize his Voice

 Joh 10:4  When the Ro'eh (shepherd) has brought out all his own, he goes ahead of them, and the tzon (sheep)  follow the Ro'eh (shepherd), because they have da'at (knowledge) of the Ro'eh's (shepherd) voice. 5  But a zar (stranger, foreigner) they will never follow, but will flee from him, because they do not have da'at (knowledge) of the voice of zarim (strangers, foreigners).

 Hardness of Heart and rebellion can block hearing the Voice of G-d

Heb 3:15  As it is said, "HA’YOM IEEM’ BE’KOLO TISH’MAU AL TAK’SHU LEVAV’CHEM ("Today, if YOU hear his voice, do not harden your hearts" ) as in the Meri’bah Me’red (Rebellion)
