Your Daily Blessing

Blessed are You, YHWH our Elohim, King of the universe, who has opened wide the eyes and ears of my understanding, that I might know the truth of Your Torah. Thank You, my Elohim, that because You are instructing me in Your truth, I can now more easily discern that which is wrong, or false. Help me, ABBA, to walk the path of Your choosing, that I might not ever turn to the right or to the left, only focusing on You, and YOUR ways. In the Name of Yeshua my Messiah, AMEIN!

Your Daily Blessing

Blessed are You, YHWH our Elohim, King of the universe, who is always at work IN me, perfecting those things that concern me, bringing forth the image of Your Son. You are my Master Gardener, tenderly watching over the Fruit of the Spirit growing within me. You cultivate, fertilize, and prune, all the while assisting MY fruit to maturity, reflecting the love of the One who died to set me free. I love You, ABBA, for You are the “El-Shaddai”, the ALL Sufficient One, and I find my sufficiency IN You. And I yield, Master, to the work that You are doing IN and THROUGH me … Amein.

Your Daily Blessing

Blessed are You, YHWH our Elohim, King of the universe, on THIS day, THIS Shabbat. I thank You, my Father, for this everlasting covenant that I have with You, sealed through my obedience to the 7th day Sabbath. As I ‘practice’ spending time with You on this set-apart day, I am in fact rehearsing for the time when I will always be with You, in the “olam haba”, the world to come. Thank You, my “El Olam”, my Everlasting Elohim, for this small taste of eternity! Amein!

Your Daily Blessing

Blessed are You, YHWH our Elohim, King of the universe, who teaches me right from wrong, even in the little, seemingly inconsequential things. Truth and justice walk hand in hand with love and compassion along the road called NO COMPROMISE, for You have shown me that it is the “little foxes that spoil the vine”.  Once I give way in one area, then it is too easy to give way the second time, and it dims the light that YOU have placed within me. You are my “Elohim Kedoshim”, the HOLY Elohim, and I thank You for all of Your lessons …Amein!

Your Daily Blessing

Blessed are You, YHWH our Elohim, King of the universe, who orders my steps, one step at a time, one by one. You bring calm out of chaos, peace out of panic, and a sense of direction from total disaster. You are the “El Roi”, the Elohim Who SEES, and to know that Your eyes are fixed upon me, caring for me, is beyond my comprehension.  “Who is like You, O יהוה[YHWH], among the mighty ones?Who is like You, great in set-apartness, awesome in praises, working wonders?”  There is NO ONE, no one like our YAH, no one like our ABBA Father. Hallelu-YAH!

Your Daily Blessing

Blessed are You, YHWH our Elohim, King of the universe, who has blessed me with the ability to hear. To be able to hear the multitude of different sounds that You have created – from the whisper of a gentle breeze in the tree tops, to the roaring thunder of the majestic Niagara Falls – I give You thanks, YAH, for this gift. Hearing, I hear Your voice, the still, small voice with which You lead and guide me. Thank You, ABBA, for all of Your words of love and encouragement – words that I treasure and keep close to my heart. May I always be like the young Samuel, and respond with: “Speak, for Your servant hears.” AMEIN!

Your Daily Blessing

Blessed are You, YHWH our Elohim, King of the universe, whose hand is filled with MERCY.  When You tip Your hand, mercy runs over, saturating me thoroughly; I stand in awe of an Elohim that loves me that much.  Lovingkindness – “chêsêd” - is Your favor that I do not deserve, but MERCY is Your unconditional, never-ending love that You give to generation after generation.  Every morning Your mercy is new, and I thank You, praise You, that Your mercy NEVER runs dry!  You are my “El Chaiyai”, the Elohim of my Life, and I ADORE You!

Your Daily Blessing

Blessed are You, YHWH our Elohim, King of the universe, who teaches me the significance of giving honor to whom honor is due.  I recognize that I need to be in submission to those in authority over me, and if for no other reason, the people in these positions deserve my honor and respect.  Judgment belongs to You, YAH, not to me.   Because of my love for You, and my desire to bring honor and glory to YOU, I choose to give place, and will give honor to those whom You have placed in authority.  YOU are my King of Glory, and I honor You.  Amein.

Your Daily Blessing

Blessed are You, YHWH our Elohim, King of the universe, who created the wind, air that You have put into motion by Your breath.  I am thankful for the cool breeze of a hot summer day, a gust of wind scattering autumn leaves, and a strong wind that blows smog and air pollutants clear out of our state.  I am thankful for the Ruach haKodesh, the set-apart, holy breath of the Living Elohim, who is, among other things, the Spirit of TRUTH, and who will always bring to my mind all the words of my Master Yeshua.  May the wind of the Spirit reveal all of the pollutants that I am still nursing within me, and assist me in blowing them all AWAY!  AMEIN!

Your Daiy Blessing

Blessed are You, YHWH our Elohim, King of the universe, who is an Elohim  of order.  You have established a seven day week, a cyclical order in time, culminating in the 7th Day Shabbat.  Thank You, my Father, that I come to rest in the refuge and security that is the Shabbat.  ABBA, I delight in Your Shabbat!

Your Daily Blessing

Blessed are You, YHWH our Elohim, King of the universe, who is revealing to me the all-encompassing wonder associated with the ‘fear’ of You.  To fear my Elohim is to stand in awe and reverence of who You are, my Creator and Redeemer.  To fear You is to acknowledge Your rule and reign in my life, for You are my King and Master.  To fear You is the consuming need and desire to never disappoint You with any of my words or actions; may my life be something that does not cause You shame.  To fear You is the determination to walk in obedience to Your Torah, Your precepts, and Your commandments.  And all of this combined will bring me into an intimate relationship with You, ABBA, that I might walk in the wisdom that You bestow upon me.  Hallelu-YAH!

Your Daily Blessing

Blessed are You, YHWH our Elohim, king of the universe, who teaches me to pay attention to my thought life. I must carefully examine every thought that comes into my mind, hold it against the standard of Your Word, and if these thoughts do not reflect Your divine instructions in righteous and moral living, then they must be discarded, thrown OUT. I must not meditate on this type of ‘stinkin thinkin’, I must not allow these harmful thoughts to enter into my heart and soul, for it is from the realm of my emotions that I will act out my thought life. Help me, ABBA, as I persevere to take captive all of these random thoughts that jump around like a frog on a lily pad. And may the abundance of my heart overflow with words of light, life, and Your truth. Amein!

Your Daily Blessing

Blessed are You, YHWH our Elohim, King of the universe.  My heart overflows because of all that You have done, and continue to do, for me, in and through me – You are perfecting all that concerns me. May I always be pliable in Your hands, the clay in my Master Potter’s hand, being molded and shaped into the vessel YOU have chosen me to be. May I reflect the light – YOUR light – to those You put me in contact with, those whose paths cross mine.  And may all that I do and say be seasoned with the love of my Messiah Yeshua. My desire is that all would know to whom I belong: my Father, my King, my Master, my Creator, my Adonai Elohim!

Your Daily Blessing

Blessed are You, YHWH our Elohim, King of the universe, who not only set the sun, moon, and stars in their place, but set in order the pattern for their coming and their going. No matter the circumstances and situations of my personal life, I know that as long as my YAH reigns, the sun will rise in the east, set in the west, and the moon will shine its light in the night sky. As I look to the east, and watch the sky beginning to lighten with the coming dawn, I anticipate Your imminent return. You are MY “El Elyon”, the Most High Elohim, and I am very thankful, very grateful, that I am Your child. Your ways are truly higher than mine, and excellent above all the earth! Amein!

Your Daily Blessing

Blessed are You, YHWH our Elohm, King of the universe, who invites me, draws me, calls me to come into Your presence, that I might find the rest and refreshing for each new day. Only in YOUR presence is there fullness of Joy. Only in Your presence does the weary traveler find the direction that is needed to stay on the path of Your choosing. Thank You, ABBA, that as my Shepherd, You lead me and guide me in paths that I can always trust. My eyes are focused on You, the “El Gibbor”, the Strong and Mighty Elohim!

Your Daily Blessing

Blessed are You, YHWH our Elohim, King of the universe, who gives me water to quench my thirst. The satisfying taste of a long, tall, c-o-o-l drink of water in the middle of a hot, dry, afternoon is one which has no equal, one to which I would say, “Aaaaaah!” Water is such a precious commodity, and yet I frequently take it for granted. Thank You, ABBA, for the sweet, clean taste of water, for filling my thirst when I am dry, and keeping me moist with Your tender care! Amein and amein!

Your Daily Blessing

Blessed are You, YHWH our Elohim, King of the universe, who created, sanctified, and delighted in the Sabbath. I thank You, ABBA, for THIS day, when I can cling to YOU, take pleasure in YOU, and learn more of YOU, and Your ways. Unite my heart, Father, to be single-minded towards You, to be diligent in my pursuit of You. Thank You, my Elohim, that it gives You pleasure when I stretch out my hand to You, in praise, adoration and worship. You are my “Machseh”, my fortress and my refuge; may I ALWAYS run to You. Amein!

Your Daily Blessing

Blessed are You, YHWH our Elohim, King of the universe, who created not only the ‘valleys’, but the ‘mountains’ as well. Thank You, ABBA, for the instructions and lessons learned as You walk me THROUGH the valleys, revealing to me that there would be no valleys without the mountains around them. Thank You, my Father, for the amazing panorama from the top of each mountain, where every element of the climb can be seen in its proper perspective. I thank You, my Elohim, my Creator, for the wisdom You display when YOU choose the path for me to climb, knowing it will perfect those things that concern me. I stand in awe of Your care, Your concern, for ME …Amein.

Blessed are You, YHWH our Elohim, King of the universe, who requires me to “be an example to the believers in word, in behaviour, in love, in spirit, in belief, in cleanliness.” As I continue to yield myself to You, my Father, to Your will IN me, I hope to reflect more of YOUR light, life and love to others around me. Help me, ABBA, to BE the example You desire me to be. Amein.

Your Daily Blessing

Blessed are You, YHWH our Elohim, King of the universe, who teaches me the importance of responsibility. I have learned that I am responsible and accountable for all that I say and do, for as Your child, I now adhere to a higher standard: that of the TORAH, Your instructions in moral and righteous living. As I strive to walk in Your light, ABBA, reflecting all that You are, may my life prove what is well pleasing to You. You are the “El Tsaddik”, the Righteous Elohim, and I yield, I submit, to all of Your instructions … in the Name of Messiah Yeshua, Amein.

Your Daily Blessing

Blessed are You, YHWH our Elohim, King of the universe.  Thank You, my Father, for ‘mirrors’. When I examine myself in a mirror, if I am COMPLETELY honest with myself, I ‘see’ all that I am NOT, and all that I long to be.  Thank You, my Elohim, for the ‘mirror’ of Your Word, Your Torah, that not only confirms these images, but also instructs me in how to become the individual YOU desire me to be. Thank You, ABBA, for the ‘mirrors’ in my life.  Amein.

Blessed are You, YHWH our Elohim, King of the universe, who is teaching me the depth of commitment. I see, my Father, the commitment that You have towards me, Your child. And because of what I see, I am coming to understand the need for commitment in all areas of my life, especially in my relationship with You. May I always have the fire of that ‘first love’ for You, my Elohim, and may my commitment to You never reach the place of lukewarm and tepid. In the Name of my soon-coming King, Yeshua HaMashiach. Amein.

Your Daily Blessing

Blessed are You, YHWH our Elohim, King of the universe, who will allow thick ‘clouds’ to blow through my life, even when I know the sun is shining.  With all of these storm clouds, ABBA, You are teaching me, more and more, the importance of “emunah”, complete and total trust in YOU, my Creator, and in Your care.  When darkness surrounds me, I KNOW that You are the Light.  When my body is wracked with pain, I KNOW You are my Healer.  And when troubles surround me on every side, I KNOW that You are my Deliverer!  Hallelu-YAH!

Your Daily Blessing

Blessed are You, YHWH our Elohim, King of the universe, who gives me a NEW beginning with every new day, every new dawn. When I turn to You in brokenness, in “teshuvah”, in repentance, You offer me a ‘new beginning’, for You are the Elohim who never holds my sins and transgressions against me. You choose to never remember them again! You are the “El Rachum Vechanum”, an El Showing Compassion and Favor, and Your mercies are new every morning!  Hallelu-YAH!

I thank You, YAH, that You are not a God to leave me ‘half-baked’, but You are perfecting everything that concerns me.

Blessed are You, YHWH our Elohim, King of the universe, who is revealing to me the intricacies of what it means to be ‘righteous’.  Simply put, righteous is conforming to what it correct and right!  Therefore, when I choose to obey Your Torah, and to walk in Your ways, I am being righteous.  Thank You, my Father, that You continue to teach me Your ways, that I might walk in righteousness before You.  Hallelu-YAH!

Yom Berekha - The Daily Blessing

Blessed are You, YHWH our Elohim, King of the universe, who will occasionally allow me to wander THROUGH a dry and lonely place. Thank You, my Father, for these desert times, for these are the times when I draw even closer to You, rely on You that much more, seek You that much harder. And as I continue to walk in “emunah”, in faith and trust, I KNOW that You have not abandoned me, for You have promised to be with me, always. Thank You, ABBA, for the lessons learned in these dry places, for I understand that You are completing that work that You began in me! Amein!
