aspect of His eternal truth that I was overlooking or minimizing. I think many who are
seeking to walk each day in YHVH’s Torah may also be overlooking this vital truth.
With all that happening in the world around us, the unscrolling of YHVH’s plans and
purposes, are you allowing fear to grow within your heart and with it your concerns,
anxiety and stress? If so, have you sought the answer from YHVH’s word, yes even from
His own lips to His beloved ones?
The Ruach HaKodesh prompted me to search his Word and blessed me with many words
of encouragement and hope because of YHVH’s love. The Ruach HaKodesh directed me
to share YHVH’s words, without comment or opinion, for prayerful study and
consideration as He leads you into all truth for your own encouragement. Taken from
Genesis through Revelation, many verses are the direct words of YHVH, our loving
Father, to His beloved children, whether a single individual or His people as a whole.
Surely they are as valid today as when they were spoken for they are YHVH’s eternal
truth. May the words you read and the truth the Ruach HaKodesh reveals to you through them
be a blessing to you. May your life be filled with only one fear – the fear of the L-rd,
YHVH, our Creator and King of the Universe – and all the blessings that result.

Psalm 91:1-16 He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will abide in the shadow
of the Almighty. 2 I will say to YHVH, “My refuge and my fortress, My Elohim, in
whom I trust!” 3 For it is He who delivers you from the snare of the trapper and from the
deadly pestilence. 4 He will cover you with His pinions, and under His wings you may
seek refuge; His faithfulness is a shield and bulwark. 5 You will not be afraid of the
terror by night, or of the arrow that flies by day; 6 of the pestilence that stalks in
darkness, or of the destruction that lays waste at noon. 7 A thousand may fall at your side
and ten thousand at your right hand, but it shall not approach you. 8 You will only look
on with your eyes and see the recompense of the wicked. 9 For you have made YHVH,
my refuge, even the Most High, your dwelling place. 10 No evil will befall you, nor will
any plague come near your tent. 11 For He will give His angels charge concerning you,
To guard you in all your ways. 12 They will bear you up in their hands, that you do not
strike your foot against a stone. 13 You will tread upon the lion and cobra, the young
lion and the serpent you will trample down. 14 “Because he has loved Me, therefore I

delights in His Torah instructions. 2 His descendants will be mighty on earth; the
generation of the upright will be blessed. 3 Wealth and riches are in his house, and his
righteousness endures forever. 4 Light arises in the darkness for the upright; he is
gracious and compassionate and righteous. 5 It is well with the man who is gracious and
lends; he will maintain his cause in judgment. 6 For he will never be shaken; the
righteous will be remembered forever. 7 He will not fear evil tidings; his heart is
steadfast, trusting in YHVH. 8 His heart is upheld, he will not fear, until he looks with
satisfaction on his adversaries. 9 He has given freely to the poor, his righteousness
endures forever; his horn will be exalted in honor. 10 The wicked will see it and be
vexed, he will gnash his teeth and melt away; the desire of the wicked will perish.
Do Not Fear!

hate me. 8 It is better to take refuge in YHVH than to trust in man. 9 It is better to take

Are you being perfected in the love of YHVH so that the fear of Him casts out all the fear
of men? If we are true believers and walk in the fear of YHVH and in his loving
instructions, why should we fear men in the face of YHVH's love and his complete,
limitless ability to protect and provide for us? YHVH wants us to trust him fully and
completely, resting in his love and provision. Will we? As for me and my house, we will
serve YHVH, walk in His ways and trust in him with all our heart, soul and strength.
May YHVH, our loving Father, bless us all and cast from us any fear as He provides His
perfect love and, in that love, all we need to live in this world and in the world to come.
Shalom in Y’shua,
