I had a dream the other day – and at the end of the dream, I was flying. Have you ever been flying in your dreams before? It was SO cool. The clouds were all around me, i could see the rolling hills, and the water below me and it was so beautiful…. everything was bright and clear….I’ll tell you more about this dream in the video below. It ties right in with our scripture challenge. That morning when I woke up from the dream, I told a close friend of mine about it. They mentioned that flying often symbolizes faith…
We all know that weshould have faith, but sometimes it’s hard to believe. Do you ever feel so low, that you barely have the energy to get out of bed, much less to “think positive” or dream of what it might feel like to fly? I’ve been there before. I think we’ve all been there before. If you could use a little encouragement, I challenge you, for the next 7 days, shift your focus every morning to this scripture challenge passage -and see what it does for your heart and mind.
If you’re new here I’m glad you came.
We have these challenges during the last week of the month so we can focus on spiritual growth as a community while developing our own personal relationship with Yah. Subscribe so that we can stay connected.
This scripture challenge is focused on 1 Corinthians 2:9. Watch the 5 min video below and leave a comment here on the blog if you’re in on the challenge!
“Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, neither has entered into the heart of man, the things that Alahiym has prepared for them that love Him. “
I Corinthians 2:9
7 day Scripture Challenge.
Take 5 mins every morning to repeat 1 Corinthians 2:9 to yourself.
Say it out loud and memorize the words.
Internalize the words.
Take your time and let the words run deep.
Allow the Word of Yahuah to come inside of you and overflow to the rest of your life.
You will have more peace of mind, more calmness and assurance…
You will move from feeling low, to feeling more balanced and level, so that you can prepare to fly.
Want a little extra challenge?
The ideas in 1 Corinthians 2:9 come from Isaiah 64:4, and that passage is about Yahuah coming through for us, not because we deserve it, but simply because we chose to wait on him. If you want an extra challenge, you can read or meditate on that passage too. The text is just below.
“Since the beginning of the ages they have not heard no perceived by the ear, nor has the eye seen any Elohim besides You, who acts for those who wait for Him.” Isaiah 64:4, The Scriptures.
REMEMBER: There is a parallel between loving Yahuah and waiting on Him. 1 Corinthians 2:9 speaks about Yahuah preparing the unfathomable for those that love Him, and Isiah 64:4 talks about Yah preparing the very
same for those that wait for Him. We must have faith and WAIT on Yahuah to see this thing He has prepared for us. Read the whole chapter of Isaiah 64 if you have time. You’ll be so glad that you did.
No matter what is happening in your life right now I challenge you to find just 5 min to shift your focus. For eye has not seen, nor ear heard, neither has enetered into the heart of man, the things that Alahiym has prepared for them that love Him. I pray you continue to enjoy the music & motivation here on the blog, and that the word of Yahuah makes an impact in your life.
If you’re in on this challenge, let me know and say “i’m in!” Share your thoughts down in the comments below. Have you ever been flying in your dreams? I’ll be praying for you this week and everyone who reads your comment will know that we’re all in this together too. I pray you’ll join us!
Yahuah gave me a surprise this week. I want to share a piece of that experience with you. I went to the lake for a walk this shabbat expecting to see it still frozen. I just assumed that since it’s February and I’m in Canada, that there wouldn’t be much activity on the water yet. Lo and behold, when i got to the lake, there were ducks, and geese, and even swans bubbling around- and it was soooo beautifuuuuul. Just goes to show that life doesn’t always turn out the way you expect it.
Every time I go to the lake or for a nature walk on shabbat it makes me think of my wonderful Creator. It makes me think of how HE is in control – and how I’m not. I just can’t help but think of His almighty power when i’m surrounded by the work of His hands.
Along with the music in today’s video, “He will make a way” from the new album Peace of Mind, you’ll see footage from springtime, summer, winter, and fall. I keep everything on my phone so I can make special things like this for you. I pray it inspires you, and reminds you that no matter what season of life you are in, Yahuah, by His almighty powerful hand, surely can, and will, make a way.
Happy watching. Enjoy the video. I’ll meet up with you down below in the comments.
“Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert” Isaiah 43:19
Is there anything weighing on your heart right now where you need Yahuah to make a way for you? Or do you have a testimony you could share of a time when Yah worked a miracle for you? Share your thoughts in the comments below…. Remember, we’re all in this together.
I know I need Him everyday in more areas than one. Sometimes there are circumstances I really struggle to understand. But every time I find myself in times like these, I remember Yahuah’s promises. His Word brings me peace of mind. He says – Don’t look back. I’m about to do something new. Look up – your redemption draweth nigh… (Luke 21:28)
Share this post with a friend if you enjoyed it – plus you never know who might need some extra sunshine in their life. I’ll see you in the comments my friend. Leave a prayer request or a praise in the comments below – let’s connect.
A new week is beginning and I pray those of you who joined us for the scripture challenge found that you became stronger and more focused on Yahuah because of the time you dedicated to meditating on His word. It’s not easy to keep your mind on heavenly things unless you make the choice to purposely focus on Yahuah.
I’ve got a song that will help you. If you already have the new album – Peace of Mind, this song will be familiar so feel free to sing along… Whether you have the album or not, I pray this video will enhance your listening experience all the more. Let me know your thoughts in the comments section below. I pray that you’ll enjoy this and that it will lift you up…
Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.
It’s my prayer that the song in the video you just heard will help you focus on heavenly things. As you go through this life, with the world-wind of madness that is happening around you, always remember, Yahuah is in control. Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth. (Col 3:2).
Let’s continue to keep our minds on heavenly things. You can download this music and take it with you as you go through the week. And if you know someone who needs encouragement, share this blog post directly with them – you never know who you have the power to lift up.
Leave a comment below and let me know how you’re doing and how the scripture challenge was for you last week. Or just say hello in the comments and share your thoughts on “Heavenly Things”. It’s always good to hear from you – so I’ll see you in the comments section below. Talk soon!
Hi there, I’m Hadarah Batyah. I sincerely believe that in order to have a spiritual walk that is authentic and true, the Word of Yahuah must be written on the inside of our hearts. That's why I write scripture songs and set apart music. Although I don’t have everything in my spiritual life all figured out, I know that Yahuah gave me the gift of music to serve Him and encourage your heart. I pray you'll be inspired by what you see on this blog. If you're curious and wanna know more- I tell it all on the About Page.
