It has been quite some time since I did this, and just on a whim this week in my prayer journal, I lined up the daily Facebook Scripture Pictures + daily Bible Study Scripture Pictures from Sunday through Sabbath last week, in order as they were posted, to see if God was still speaking this way. Mind blown! Yes He is. I will post this every Monday in 2017, as much as I am able:

Shabbat prophetic message: If you are afflicted by the enemy, and he is exalted before your face this week, hold on to God’s promises for you: He has blessed you, He is with you, and He will keep you no matter what. Our response in the face of affliction is to pray and ask for the LORD’s help; to trust in Him and keep our confidence steadfast in Him; and to obey His word, keeping our conduct ordered aright and forsaking sin. Even before we see our deliverance, for we will be delivered from affliction, we can offer our praise to Him, singing to the LORD God of Israel!
