Chazak Amats!

I have recently found much conviction and encouragement in the fight from several sermons by Eric Ludy @ www.Ellerslie.com. The messages entitled "Praying Through" and "The Burning Heart" have spoken deeply to me. I would encourage you to listen to these sermons.

Torah is not supposed to be a burden. It is supposed to free us, so that we are able to live by the cry "Chazak Amats!" As our forefathers did. We need to bring the fire of Messiah back into this "Messianic" walk. Too many have become complacent and focused merely on the works of Torah. We need to return to the incredible faith of our forefathers. Yes, we need the love, the mercy, and the atonement. But enough. We also need to return to the passion, to the victory, to the courage, knowing that YHWH will not fail. We cannot go forward without this. Without this, we are weak. If we cannot stand in the strength of YHWH, then what is our faith worth? It is for nothing.
  "Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage (lit. "Chazak Amats!"); be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for YHWH thy Elohim is with thee whithersoever thou goest." Joshua 1:9
