Greetings! I just listened to this message and it rocked my world in such a good way. My prayer is that you will set aside a good 45 minutes and allow your heart to be encouraged as well. Yeshua Jesus Bless!
Romance is such a glorious thing. But I have found that though the love of man to woman is something divinely inspired and beyond glorious, there is nothing in all creation that can compare to the love that one experiences in the arms of god. to draw closer to him, to know his heart, to know his greatest and purist love is for us, for you, to be wrapped securely in that does more than take your breath away.

The joy of the LORD is my strength!” ~Nehemiah 8:10
If we’ve all learned nothing else about the darkness, it is the truth that all it takes is the smallest flicker of light to DISPEL it. As it Says in the song above, “In the darkness I’ll dance, in the shadows I’ll sing. the joy of the Lord is my strength.” (Rend collective) Joy is light. light breaks all darkness. it’s when we are at the point of a breakthrough, a major change and victory in our lives, that darkness seems its thickest. but remember the enemy is of the dark and there is no truth in him (JOHN 8:44.) It’s in these darkest hours that we can take the biggest moment to rejoice because Breakthrough is just ahead of us. The darkest hour is always before the break of day. But day surely comes!
Praise the LORD, all you nations; extol Him, all you peoples, for great is His steadfast love toward us; the faithfulness of the LORD endures forever. Hallelujah.” ~Psalm 117:1-2
From the rhythm to the words, this song of adoration and celebration of the Glory of the True and Living God, Yeshua Jesus, has blessed my soul since first I heard it. It turns my heart immediately to His joy and celebration, moving my lips to smile, my voice to raise and my hands to lift in worship, reminding me of how SWEET and WORTHY HE truly is! I pray that it will do the same for you!

“Don’t remember the former things, and don’t consider the things of old. Behold, I will do a new thing, Now it shall spring forth; Shall you not know it? I will even make a road in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.” ~Isaiah 43:18-19
The Apostle Paul said in (Philippians 3:13-14) that he had determined to forget what was behind him in order to obtain what was ahead of him, thus he pressed forward towards the goal of the high calling of his life. And if you are familiar with the life of Paul, then you know that he was responsible for many deaths and imprisonments of the first followers of Yeshua Jesus, only to be called into the glorious Light himself.
Could you imagine what life would have been like had Paul allowed his past mistakes, failures and disappointments to determine and even spoil his future? Think of all the humanitarians of the Faith who’ve come forward for good because Paul pressed forward leaving yesterday where it belongs…behind.
With the dawning of a new civil year, we too have the blessing of starting over, but not just the year but through Christ, every single day!
Yeshua Jesus promises that His mercies are new EVERY MORNING! not just ever 365 days (Lamentations 3:22-23.) But there is still something so special about starting fresh for an entire year.
Behold, Yeshua Jesus is doing a NEW THING. That New Thing is available to any and everyone who will call upon His Name and trust in Him and His love for them. That New Thing is ready for all of us this year, should we choose to perceive it, or as Isaiah prophesied, “shall we know it?” The choice is ours to do so or not.
Let us all determine to have a paradigm shift. Let us see through faith and hope and love and victory.
Let’s take hold of the new thing and the new year of life gifted to us. Let’s march forward to greater things!
Dream. Imagine. Believe. Do. CONQUER!
Psalm 63:3-6 Because Your lovingkindness is better than life, My lips shall praise You. Thus I will bless You while I live; I will lift up my hands in Your name. My soul shall be satisfied as with marrow and fatness, And my mouth shall praise You with joyful lips. When I remember You on my bed, I meditate on You in the night watches.”

For a day in Your courts is better than a thousand. I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God than dwell in the tents of wickedness.” ~Psalm 84:10
To look upon the one you love and to say that one day with them, in their presence is better than 1,000 days put together is a mighty statement. These words are the embodiment of an incredible love and devotion.
Have you ever been in love? Have you ever felt so strongly for another soul? Whether you have or not the truth still remains that we all were created with the desire for such a great love.
The beauty, being made so, is that the first and greatest fulfillment of this love, one which never ceases but ever are we made aware of its intense sweetness, is the spiritual love that we all can have with God through trusting faith in His Only Son, Yeshua Jesus.
His righteous, unrelenting love will NEVER LEAVE US NOR FORSAKE US! (Hebrews 13:5)
The Song of Solomon is a grand reflection of intimate, romantic love and devotion expressed between the Groom and His Beloved, but more it is an allegory of the love Yeshua Jesus has for us. Out of all His creation, He loves you most and best!
Aren’t two sparrows sold for an assarion coin? Not one of them falls on the ground apart from your Father’s will, but the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Therefore don’t be afraid, You are of more value than many sparrows.” ~Matthew 10:29-31
Consider how many sparrows fly throughout the earth. God knows each of them and cares for them. Yet God’s love, His admiration of you is so incredible that He knows even the number of hairs that are on your head! You would have to care a great deal about a person to even see the worth in knowing something so seemingly trivial, yet the God of the universe knows this about you because He is that much in love with you!
The greatest experience of Love is not only knowing that you are loved, but being able to receive that love while giving love in return.
This is what a spiritual Love Affair is all about. It is delighting in the presence of your Savior, receiving His love while loving Him, basking in His beauty and being refreshed by His presence.
What better way to show love than to give Joy?
I encourage you as you listen to the song above to really allow your heart to be enraptured by the love of God through Yeshua Jesus. I promise you you too will say like the Psalmist, better is one day with Him than 1,000!

Ecclesiasties 1:14;12:13 “I have seen all the things that are done under the sun; all of them are meaningless, a chasing after the wind…The end of the matter, all having been heard: fear God, and keep His commandments; for this is the whole man.”
The book of Ecclesiastes was inspired by the Living Spirit of God and written by not only the wisest man to ever live, but the wealthiest man of all creation; King Solomon. In his lifetime, he had tasted of every indulgence he could, wealth was in abundance, of woman he did not lack. There was nothing under the sun that was denied him.
And yet, after running around the mountain of indulgence and want, whether of Godly pursuit or in the attempt to appease the longings of his own flesh and desires; he came to the simple and yet profound conclusion, that nothing, NOTHING else was of true value, all was as chasing the wind, except loving God.
The word “fear” used in the scripture in regard to the Holy God of creation, is not that of being afraid and cowering, but one of awe and reverence. To be totally stricken silent by the glorious wonder of the One you are beholding. At the end of it all, King Solomon had found his One thing. God was his one thing.
Some may be thinking, “Well, that’s all well and good for him, but I live in the real world and I have real problems and cares.” So did Solomon. Whether at your greatest height or your lowest low, there is nothing so sweet as the embrace of Yeshua Jesus but you can only experience that by giving Him permission to take you in His arms.
Yeshua Jesus longs to love you and be loved by you. He died for you as His greatest expression of His love because YOU are HIS ONE THING.
Romans 5:8 But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
I encourage you to listen to the song again, read the words and maybe even sing along. Allow yourself to be enraptured with the truth that you are His One thing and His desire is to be close to you. And allow Him to be your One thing, for in Him are all things and you will lack for no good thing! (Matthew 6:24-34)
Revelation 3:20 “Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me.”

There is indeed a time and a season to all things, but how many times have we used this “truth” out of context, and as a means to hide behind our fear, allowing great opportunities to pass us by?
To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven…(Ecclesiastes 3:1-8)“
God does indeed have a plan for all of us. He has the perfect times set up for each and every one of us. I am not a believer in “coincidences” but “God-incidences,” however even with a beautifully orchestrated God-incidence if we are insistent upon finding every reason for why we shouldn’t make a move, we will miss our moment.
Some moments don’t come around twice. They are truly once-in-a-lifetime events.
So I encourage you to, yes, pray without ceasing. Seek the face of God and allow the wisdom of Yeshua Jesus to guide you in His perfect way and will in all that you do, but don’t let fear of waiting for the “perfect moment” to rob you of the moment at hand.
If you’re waiting for the right time The right time will fly right by you Always planning, never moving Always praying, never doing It ain’t living if you’re just spending your life Waiting for the right time” ~Warren Barfield The right time
There is no such thing as a perfect moment, only the right time and most of the time the right time happens when it looks impossible.
Many of us like to say we are waiting on God…but have you ever considered that maybe God is waiting on you?
The time is now! Step out on faith, and don’t let your “moment” pass you by.
