Chronicles of Pegi’s Journal ( S.O.A.P.)
Gatekeepers perform protective duties.
They guarded the four entrances to the temple of the Lord. North, South, East and West. These Levites acted as guards and performed various duties ministering in the temple of the LORD.
Life Application Commentary: “Gatekeepers guarded the four main entrances to the temple and opened the gates each morning for those who wanted to worship… Gatekeepers had to be reliable, honest, and trustworthy…”
This description brings to mind YadaFactor coaches who open the gates of their hearts and minds to God and to others in order to model intimate temple worship. Coaches are truly reliable, honest, and trustworthy. YFE provides a secure place for others to enter God’s presence.
Father, I ask a special blessing on the YadaFactor coaches today. Most do perform multiple duties as moms, wives, sisters, friends, workers, grandmas. Abba, help each of these women seek you first so that what they serve others is from you. Meeting you in the heavenly tabernacle tent by Christ’s blood sacrifice who cleanses our consciences from sin and useless rituals. We persevere and enter the Most Holy Place by the blood of Jesus, by a new and living way opened for us through the torn curtain, that is His body. Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful. And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds. Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing in our personal Yada triads, in the YadaFactor Experience sessions, but let us encourage one another and all the more as we see the Day approaching.
Thank you that we know the way to come into your presence and how we get to show others what personal intimacy with you looks like.
In Jesus Name, Amen.
