The Lord’s Will in This Season | Day 6

April 25, 2020

Now listen, you who say, “Today or tomorrow we will go to this or that city, spend a year there, carry on business and make money.” Why, you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes. Instead, you ought to say, “If it is the Lord’s will, we will live and do this or that.” —James 4:14-15 It’s hard to remember what life was like before COVID-19. It seems that every day our minds are filled with thinking abou...

Will you join us in prayer during this challenging season?

April 24, 2020

In this season of coronavirus, we are seeing the Lord expose our idols and connect us together to glorify Him! As we keep our eyes focused on our King, we will operate in new ways, creative ways, ways that have been the work of the Kingdom all along. One of those ways is prayer! Corona, as in coronavirus, means crown. We are not giving coronavirus first place in this season. Instead, as we crown our King Yeshua with all our affection and attention, we can activate our faith and heartily ...

How to Have Community while Social Distancing | Day 5

April 24, 2020

Is anyone among you in trouble? Let them pray. Is anyone happy? Let them sing songs of praise. Is anyone among you sick? Let them call the elders of the church to pray over them and anoint them with oil in the name of the Lord. And the prayer offered in faith will make the sick person well; the Lord will raise them up. If they have sinned, they will be forgiven. Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person is powerf...

It’s a dark time, but God is faithful!

April 23, 2020

“God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, though the earth change” Psalm 46:2-3 (TLV). Shalom, I want to acknowledge that right now is a dark hour. Many of us have friends or even family members who are battling COVID-19. And the death toll from this pandemic continues to climb across the globe. It’s a time of struggle. I find it interesting that, earlier this week, we observed what is probably the darkest hour in the history of t...

Speaking Life in Difficult Times | Day 4

April 23, 2020

Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry.—James 1:19 With the tongue we praise our Lord and Father, and with it we curse human beings, who have been made in God’s likeness. Out of the same mouth come praise and cursing. My brothers and sisters, this should not be. Can both fresh water and salt water flow from the same spring? My brothers and sisters, can a fig tree bear olives, or a grapevine bear figs? Neither can a salt spring produce fresh water. —James 3:...

Gain Access to the Lord’s Wisdom | Day 3

April 22, 2020

If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you. —James 1:5 But the wisdom that comes from heaven is first of all pure; then peace-loving, considerate, submissive, full of mercy and good fruit, impartial and sincere. —James 3:17 If you’ve ever watched a 3-D movie you know what it’s like to be totally engrossed in the story. There are multiple dimensions and layers. A 2-D movie is engaging, but it is nothing co...

A Letter from Rabbi Jonathan Bernis

April 21, 2020

From Rabbi Jonathan Bernis, President and CEO of Jewish Voice: Dear Partners and Friends of Jewish Voice, I trust all of you are doing well through this bizarre and challenging time. Although the quarantine period and social distancing measures will eventually come to an end (and soon I hope) the economic fallout will take far longer to recover from. But we will! Did the Lord “cause” this to happen? I don’t think So. But it certainly is a wake-up call to us all. And at some point in the...

Draw Near to God in This Season | Day 2

April 21, 2020

Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. —James 4:8 This season that we find ourselves in is very hard to comprehend. It doesn’t make sense; we don’t understand it and we didn’t expect it. Luckily for us, it’s not a surprise to the Lord and we can take confidence in the fact that despite our circumstances, He doesn’t change, and His promises are still true. Hold to that thought when you feel discouraged! One of those promises is in James 4:8. As we draw near to the Lord, He draws n...
