Tevet is a time to remember both the righteous judgement of God and His merciful victories in our lives. This combination of mercy and judgment is seen women through the fabric of Scripture and we personally experience both in our lives. This is God's economy. We all have great victories and great defeats. Our greatest defeats occur when we try to satisfy the desires of our flesh. Our greatest victories happen when we have surrendered our very selves to the service of our great King. All are destined to stand before the judgment seat, but those that have trusted in Messiah will receive mercy.
We can trust that God will be with each of us through our daily struggles and our walk. He is even there to help us when we turn back to him and break connection after our failings. Through a process of growth, we fail less frequently as we are transformed in mind and conformed in life to the image of Yeshua. This results in ever-increasing victorious living, because instead of living for one's self, we begin to live more and more for the Father's kingdom.
Messiah Yeshua has promised that he will never leave us nor forsake us. This will enable us to go on to confidently say that the Lord is our helper, and that we will not fear (Hebrews 13:5-6). We will trust that even through calamitous events, that the Lord will work it out ultimately for our good (Romans 8:28).
Whenever you remember when and where you have been defeated, recall the great victory of Messiah.
