Torah Portion

Dear Torah Portion Reader...

I am very excited that the Spring Feast is just around the corner! We are now in the final preparation count-down, which for us at Lighted Way Ministries is an "all-hands-on-deck" scenario. In the next few weeks and days, I will be finishing the book "God's Amazing Star Secret" (which I pray to have fresh from the press at Passover, on April 1, 2018), I will be writing the sermons, putting together the children's program, cooking (and freezing) the casseroles to serve during the Retreat week, and more...

In order to accomplish all of this, I will not be taking time to write the Torah portion commentaries during this period of time. However, that does not mean that anyone need to get behind. The following is the Torah reading and study schedule for the next few weeks. As you keep up with this schedule, you will be on track to complete all 613 Statutes this year. So, from now to April 14, the Torah portions will be posted without comment. Commentary and the usual Torah portions will resume on April 15. Thank you for your patience! And happy studying in the meantime :-)

Proverbs 24:10

Scripture Doodle: Proverbs 24:10

One of the things I enjoy doing in my spare time is illustrating Scriptures on the side panel of my Bible. Doing this helps me memorize Scripture and is a fun way to find Spiritual encouragement. This week, just for fun, I will share some of my Scripture doodles from my Bible. I hope you enjoy them.

The first one I will share is Proverbs 24:10. This Scripture is a powerful Spiritual Warfare principle. It means that you have to develop spiritual strength day-by-day. Only then, will you have the strength you need to face a major test. 

If you prepare ahead of time, developing your relationship with God and deepening your understanding of His Word - DAILY, you will be strong (in Him) and better equipped to face the bigger trials and tests along life's way.

This Scripture encourages us to develop spiritual strength in much the same way a warrior develops physical fighting skills. Because the warrior has practiced and prepared - training for battle ahead of time - the warrior will be ready when a real battle comes. 

However, if someone decided to run into battle without any training or preparation, he might be in danger of "fainting" in the day of adversity.

Spiritual warfare principle from this first Scripture Doodle: A good Spiritual Warrior will develop Spiritual Strength through taking time with God daily.
