Haderekh Messianic Devotional

COUNTING THE COST

'Lord, let me first go and bury my father.' But Yeshua said to him, 'Follow Me, and let the dead bury their own dead.' Matthew 8:21-22 (NKJV) This is a hard teaching! Yeshua is saying that following Him should take priority even over burying your own father! Commitment and dedication are the issues at stake here; in fact, these principles are two of the key priorities for any believer. It is easy to say, 'I believe in Yeshua', but are you prepared to pay the cost of following Him? Sadly, often the real answer is 'no'. Changing a sinful lifestyle for a righteous one is a challenge in itself,...

TIMES OF LOSS

'Yehovah is close to the broken-hearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit' Psalm 34:18 (NIV) Many times over the years, believers see amazing answers to prayer. They give glory to Yehovah for incredible victories, for provision, for health, and for wisdom. Many believers have prayed for healing, and have seen miracles as a result. However, sometimes prayers are not answered in the way in which you would like. Sometimes the person you are praying for dies. Sometimes things happen which make no sense. You can feel sad, confused and angry, even though you know deep in your heart that...

A CHANGE IN PERSPECTIVE

'In all this, Job did not sin nor charge Yehovah with wrong' Job 1:22 (NKJV) How do you view the trials and hardships in your life? The Bible tells us that all things work together for good if you love Yehovah and are called by Him. When life is at its worst, do you believe that to be true? Take the story of Job, and view it from Yehovah's perspective. It becomes then, not the story of a man who lost everything, but about Yehovah who restored all that the devil had stolen, and more besides. Not about a man losing faith in Yehovah, but a man maintaining his faith throughout the greatest of...

90 DAYS IN THE SCRIPTURES

As followers of Yeshua, despite our positive confessions and aspirations,
many of us have and still do struggle to get into the Scriptures on a
regular and consistent basis. That can sometimes be because we try to sit
and read long passages, chapters or even books in one sitting. read more…

FROM FEAR TO FAITH

Early in 2020, news began to reach us that the coronavirus, or Covid 19, was beginning to spread rapidly from China, where it appeared to have begun, into mainland Europe. No one, certainly everyday laypeople, had any idea how much this would affect the world in the coming months, nor the fact that it would soon be classified as a pandemic. One of the first places it impacted was the northern region of Italy, where we had close and dear friends, pastors of a large church and leaders of a national ministry which reached many thousands of people across the whole of the country. We began to pray for them, and wrote to tell them the areas and issues for which we felt to pray. As we did so, I realised these same things would be what we would need to consider and seek the Lord over, particularly as, in the following few weeks we in the U.K. would be affected in similar ways. This book was birthed from those prayer points. read more…

Its purpose is to present the Biblical principles regarding what should happen to the inheritance we leave behind, and to provide guidance relating to tithing and giving. read more…
