September 24
Therefore do not throw away your confidence, which has a great reward. For you have need of endurance, so that when you have done the will of God you may receive what is promised.  Hebrews 10:35-36 ESV
1 Chronicles 7 

Nothing different today that got my attention.
Ezekiel 20 
The Sabbath is a God given Covenant.  It is out of His care for us that He wants us to rest in Him.  The Lord will often act for the sake of His Name because of the rebellion of people.  This is another reason that everything He declares, comes to pass.  Are we not living in the time of the Lord bringing people out of the nations where they were scattered back to Israel?  I am grateful that the Lord does not deal with me according to my former ways but because of the Cross, He sees me sanctified and righteous according to the way of my Lord Yeshua!  Here is a prophetic Word that our Lord Yeshua will speak in parables.
Romans 9
This is what the Israelites, the Jewish people were entrusted with and what we must be eternally grateful about:
4 They are Israelites, and to them belong the adoption, the glory, the covenants, the giving of the law, the worship, and the promises. 5 To them belong the patriarchs, and from their race, according to the flesh, is the Christ, who is God over all, blessed forever. Amen.
It is the children of Promise that receive the blessing and this is for Jew and Gentile alike.  The Promise is for those who truly live by faith for the Promise was given to Abraham because of His faith (trust, reliance on and obedience) in and to Father God.  
Meditate & Apply: I am so grateful for what Lord Yeshua did for me!  I must continually remember that my God sees me as He sees the Son.  The Lord is the Potter and He chose the Jews to entrust the things that would bring salvation through Messiah Yeshua.  Who is anyone to argue with the Potter’s choices?  Eternal life is made available to every human who does it the way of the Lord.  God is not mean.  He would not harden a heart on a person who didn’t oppose Him so please don’t take these scriptures about Pharaoh out of context, or any other passage for that matter!

I read Ezk 20:12 today with new eyes: "I gave them my Sabbaths as a sign between us, so they would know that I the LORD made them holy." Another reason to keep the Sabbath--to remind us that God made us holy! We are His!
