The Peleh Of Your Life

Jonathan Cahnby Jonathan Cahn

Are you dealing with a lot of difficulties in your life? You probably think it’s a bad thing. The word for difficulty in Hebrew is ‘peleh’. The word for ‘miracle’ is the very same word ‘peleh’.

You see, every difficulty in your life is a potential miracle. In Isaiah 9:6, Messiah is called the Counselor of miracles, but you can also take it as the counselor of difficulties. In the Gospel, you find His miracles with the blind, lame, crippled, poor, the grieving, those in mourning, the thirsty, the sick, the lepers, the guilty, the sinful, and the outcasts. We find the miracles in our difficulties. You have to learn in your difficulties to find His miracles. Those who found miracles are the ones who lifted up their difficulties— their withered hands, crippled fingers, sinful eyes— to the touch of His hands and the difficulties became a miracle (peleh). The difficulty is the very thing that allows you to have a miracle. So, lift up your difficulty to the touch of God’s hand, and the difficulty will become a miracle (peleh), because that’s what it was all along, in disguise.

Today’s Mission – Today, embrace the difficulties in your life. Praise God, lift your troubles up to Him, and open them up to the touch and power of God, until they become the miracles of peleh.

You’re chosen for a task!

George Whittenby George Whitten

Hebrews 1:8,9 But unto the Son he saith, Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever: a sceptre of righteousness is the sceptre of thy kingdom. Thou hast loved righteousness, and hated iniquity; therefore God, even thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows.

As we continue our study of Mashiach ben Yosef, we observe that both Joseph and Yeshua (Jesus) were chosen or “anointed” for a special task. When Jacob gifted his son Joseph with a coat of many colors, lifting him up above his brothers, he reflected Joseph’s calling by the Lord for a life work as a leader.

The preparation for this role was grueling. Joseph endured the fires of testing, sold into slavery, thrown into prison, and seemingly abandoned by God he must have wondered to himself, “Why is this happening?” It seems clear from hindsight that Joseph was learning the deep humility required for God’s kind of leadership. We also see the humility of the Son of God in His Incarnation and crucifixion. (“My God, My God, why have you forsaken me?”) So as Joseph saved the whole world from physical death by starvation, Yeshua saved the whole world from spiritual death, the judgment of sin

If you have seen signs of your own anointing for a specific task, and find yourself in the midst of painful “unexplainable” trials and tribulations, you’re in good company. God gives responsibility to people of character. Both Joseph and Yeshua are beautiful examples of the kind of leader God loves–a humble one.

Your family in the Lord with much agape love
