Of Whom Shall I Be Afraid?
Of whom shall I be afraid?
When I have those few moments in the morning before I jump into my morning routine with Mark and the kids and homeschooling and my own classes, I look out my windows -cuz it’s been cold these days and I don’t want to go outside where it’s cold -and I cannot help but see, both physically and spiritually, how great and mighty and strong Elohim is.
Strength is part of Elohim’s character. And, we see His strength every day in the way He protects us and provides for us, even in the way He sent His Son, Yeshua ha-Meshiach to provide the way of redemption for us. That took/takes a greater strength that no human being is capable of. I don’t think my husband, Mark, could give up any of his sons (biological or otherwise) for the sake of another person, no matter how much Mark would claim to love that other person; yet, Elohim did just that. His strength is so available even to us. We need only to accept what He offers to us … His forgiveness, His grace, and His mercy.
Tehillim (Psalms) 27:1 says, “Adonai is my Light and my Salvation. Whom shall I fear? Adonai is the Strength of my life. Of whom shall I be afraid?"
This is a verse that we recite every night that we light the Hanukkah candles. We realize and recognize how very weak we are as human beings, while at the same time giving glory to Elohim for the strength of His character by becoming the Light of the World to save us. And, at the end of the night, we blow the candles out- we do not want to, after all, burn the house down -and as the candles are blown out, we realize and recognize that His Light, His Son, Yeshua can never be extinguished … NEVER!
Adonai is our Defense!! He is our Safeguard!! He is our Salvation!! He is our Shield!! He is forever our Light!! Of whom shall we be afraid!?
Hoshianna! by Joshua Aaron

Blessed are You, Adonai Eloheinu, King of the universe, Who gave to us the Way of salvation through Yeshua ha-Meshiach. Blessed be He. Amen.
