Giving life is what you and I are about. For He has shown us the way. – Steve Martin, Love For His People Ministry

Dec. 19, 2022 Charlotte, North Carolina

Greetings to my family and friends of Love For His People Ministry.

Whenever I am given the opportunity to share the love of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, I become a wiser man when I do it. Giving out the life we have been given, to those the Lord brings us into contact with, demonstrates His love more fully in our world which desperately needs to know and experience His love.

When doubt and unbelief attempt to surround people and hide Him, we can be the ones to impact those needing to know that He cares, He loves, and He is there for them. As we can and should be also.

With each and every moment you have the time to give, do so. The comeback is worth far more than the effort it will take. And in your giving of life, know that the Father is pleased with the faith and love you express each and every time.

Ahava and shalom,

Giving Life  by Steve Martin

“He changes a wilderness into a pool of water and a dry land into springs of water…” Psalm 107:35, NASU  

Yeshua (Jesus) has never stopped giving life. The Word of God declares He is in fact the One through Whom all things have been created and it is He Who holds all things together. “For by Him all things were created, both in the heavens and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities — all things have been created through Him and for Him. He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together.” Colossians 1:16-18, NASU 

His creative hands keep on continually performing wonderful acts of love, even so far as forming new life, babies in the wombs of mothers, who are so delicately woven in His expression of love. The Father and Son, together with the acts of the Holy Spirit, have granted His people the opportunity to pass on life, giving it to those who come after us, needing it as much as we did and still do in our walk with the Lord. 

And so, a few of us mothers and fathers ourselves stood over the young woman, seated in the warmth of the believing home, expecting her firstborn that the Lord was crafting in her gifted body created for this very time and season. We desired to further impart His life, to her and this one to come. What we have been given, it too was then in our heart’s desire to bring more fully into hers, and to this child being prepared for their life in this world. 

One of the most beautiful images is that of a young mother expecting a child.

Our God is so creative. While we laid hands on her head and shoulders, each of us spoke words of life, coming forth from our inner spirit, readily being used as an instrument of His peace and joy. We were passing on encouragement, inspiration, and faith to her from heaven. We could sense the Holy Spirit’s presence as we prayed. 

Within a few moments, the Holy Spirit gave me a picture in my mind of her standing before a small pool of water, pleasant to look at and inviting her to step in. So she lifted her uncovered toe and dipped it into the freshwater, a smile forming on her face as if she had waited for so long to experience the coolness and life that it would bring to her and her child. This vision was a simple prophetic sign of what her heavenly Father was bringing to her. It was to encourage her to not be afraid but to have trust in the life He has prepared for her and her child. This was another sign of His ongoing love for her. When she stepped into the refreshing water, more of His life would be hers, and her baby’s. 

Whenever the Lord moves as He does in this matter, my eyes tear up, for it is His ongoing love that forever draws us to Him, to experience His fatherly compassion, protection, and provision in all things. As each of us gives the life we have been given to others, the Giver of Life will continually refresh us also. He will always replenish, nourish, and further display His loving heart to ones who need His touch, His assurance, and His comfort in these troubling times. 

There will always be the season to give, to impart life. Let that which He has given you be shared in every small and large way with those whom He connects you with, as you are given the opportunity to do so. When you do, a life of giving, such as the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit display every day, will further develop in your inner being, bringing more joy and appreciation for life as you do. 

Yeshua said to His disciples, in one of His final messages before going back to heaven, “If you understand what I’m telling you, act like it — and live a blessed life.” John 13:17, THE MESSAGE

Message #131 in this series – in the year of our Lord 12.19.2022 – “Giving Life”  Monday, 8:50 am in Charlotte, North Carolina


David Peterman and I recorded an “Ahava Moments With You” message in his home in South Carolina (now totaling over 80 recordings.)

This one is entitled, “I Am Who You Say I Am“, to encourage you in knowing further who you are, and Who He is. And…for the fun of it, Walk With Me in this little town in South Carolina. “O Little Town…”Ahava and Shalom, Steve Martin

WHY WE DO WHAT WE DO by Steve Martin (published Nov. 14, 2022)

On Nov. 11, 2022, as I awaited the shuttle to the Ben Gurion International Airport in Tel Aviv, Israel, I asked the Lord what the title of my 36th book should be. “Why We Do What We Do – We Live For the Lord” came the response from the Holy Spirit. So, I named it that. 

The morning after I got home on Sunday, Nov. 13, 2022, I opened the November/December 2022 issue of Charisma Magazine which my good wife Laurie had been reading on the kitchen table. I skimmed through the pages and noticed an article by Rod Parsley entitled, “Seek the Father’s Face, Hear His Voice”. I had known of Rod and his ministry, but not a regular listener. On page 57 of his article, the written paragraph header was, “His Voice in My Ear”. In the 4th paragraph, he wrote of the Lord asking Him this question, “Why do you do what you do?” Confirmation!

Thus, I had heard the Lord also. This book contains the five months of messages I shared with subscribers to my weekly email, and then posted on our website www.loveforhispeople.com and other social media platforms. For each of us to accomplish the Lord’s will, plans, and purposes for our individual lives we must know what we are to do and do it. We will then understand the “why we do what we do” question, as we walk out His ways. 

Be inspired and encouraged as you read, either as a daily discipline or as a book with examples as to how to walk the Christian faith in your own life. And as you know the “why”, your courage, boldness, and firmer commitment to live for Jesus Christ, Yeshua HaMashiach, will be evident to many. You may not even have to say a word. 

I have also included the six messages I wrote from Jerusalem, between Oct. 24-Nov. 11, 2022 when I was there on my 26th journey to the Land. Since 2010 I have called these journeys “Ahava Adventures”. “Ahava” is love in Hebrew. 

Blessings on ye head. Ahava and Shalom, Steve Martin, Founder, Love For His People Ministry
