Your destiny in Messiah Yeshua is forever linked to Israel. He preached the gospel of its kingdom. His disciples spoke of the restoration of David’s fallen house – a restoration that includes all who sojourn with Israel.
Only when we understand about “both the houses of Israel” (Isaiah 8:14) can we truly understand our Redeemer’s mission. Only when we know Him can we know who Israel really is; for He is salvation – Yeshua – the epitome of all that it means to be “Israel.” When we see Him as the Lion of Judah, His Israelite Kingdom also comes into vivid focus. - Batya Wootten
Our natural inclination is to deny that we believe lies and to bury the pain they are producing. If we do this, however, we will maintain a cycle of perpetual defeat in our lives. As long as lies remain embedded in our minds, they will continue to surface as pain every time we are in situations similar to when they were originally implanted. Freedom requires honestly acknowledging our emotional pain and taking responsibility for its corresponding belief. We must choose to lay down our feeble defenses and attempts to project the pain onto others or onto life circumstances before God (Yahweh) will release us from what has held us bound. God (Yahweh) does not reward pretension. He rewards honesty and humility by making His strength perfect in our weakness.
