Haderekh Messianic Devotional

YEHOVAH LOOKS

'The eyes of Yehovah search the whole earth in order to strengthen those whose hearts are fully committed to Him.' 2 Chronicles 16:9 (NLT) In the days of King Asa, Yehovah was looking - roaming to and fro - searching across the earth for committed followers. He still searches the earth today. He is looking for one life, fully surrendered to Him, that He can use to make a difference - one life that can be used to change history. Yehovah uses anyone who is willing to be used; people of any age, background or race. He uses men and women, educated and uneducated, old and young, rich and poor, to...

BEING THE BODY

You may have heard the story of the leader who took on a historic building, and within a few weeks decided that the organ would be better in a different part of the building. He moved the organ, and the following week was shocked to see World War Three break out in...

MORNINGS WITH YEHOVAH

In the natural realm many of us are accustomed to eating “on the go” – starting off our days in a rush to get to work or to school – maybe grabbing a piece of toast or a cereal bar as we head out of the door. If we have lunch at all, we eat it at our desks, keeping up with the workload that surrounds us. Then at night, if we are fortunate, we sit down to eat our dinners, often the largest meal of the day, on a tray in front of the TV. Then we are too full and too tired to move – and so in the evenings we become “vegged-out” “couch potatoes.” read more…
