Fill in the Blanks

John 6:42

They (the Judeans) said, “Isn’t this Yeshua Ben-Yosef (Jesus son of Joseph)? We know His father and mother! How can He now say, ‘I have come down from heaven’?”

Ever notice that Yeshua (Jesus) never referred to His birth??

Let this soak in…ask Him to enter the thoughts that follow.

Here is Yeshua…amongst a slew of
“Who are you’s?”
“Who does He think He is?”
“Who do you think you are’s?”

And not even when given the “invitation” to get specific…does He turn ears towards His miraculous entry! Remember? How they asked…

Isn’t He from Galilee?”

Based on the assumption that He must have been born there, since this was where He had lived. The scholars of that time were few in the sense of true study for the purpose of “continuing education”. There were a few who knew the Messiah would be born in Bethlehem. Noone asked where He was born; and Yeshua never corrected the assumption specifically!

The whole Bible is full of these types of “fill in the blank” openings. Every single parable Yeshua told. Every single story…from beginning to end!

I remember in grade school that many of my papers consisted of these types of sentences. The teacher would write a sentence, and leave an underlined blank in spots for us to fill in. Sometimes there was a group of words to choose from; the tough one’s did not. I recall loving these types of questions. It’s a small wonder…given my nature :-).

Every day without fail I am given such things as this to “invite” Yeshua, the Father and the Spirit to teach me. Words to complete a “sentence”,  a phrase jumbled and in need to re-ordering, and sometimes…a blank page. You see Yeshua said to listen to His voice…following His instruction; for a profound reason! He intends to keep teaching us Himself. This means He speaks directly to us…directing in the detailed, specific, and unique way for our lives…right where we are, in our day, in our relevancy, with the effects in our immediate realm of influence. Filling in our blanks…indeed writing our very lives; fresh and new – every minute, everyday! The only “multiple choice” we get?? Who we will let fill our blanks in!

Who fills in your blanks? From the study of the Word to the living of it in perpetuity? When you ask a question…like…

“Owner of All, Maker of me – why didn’t You speak about Your birth when they questioned Your legitimacy?”

Do you hear His answer? Do you expect to? There are questions we ask that remain a mystery, He by His silence is asking only that we wait for His timing to answer. Yet most of the time our God is ready to fill in the blanks – eager even!! Sadly, the confidence of so many in His ability to speak to them, falls into the slumber of the fall. Yet, it is with great confidence I say to you…

“There is a God in Heaven, who has taken the initiative to speak to His children from the beginning of all we know! He is still speaking…and will till the end! He is the WORD! Let Him teach you how to read His Kingdom writing! The ink…is His Voice…the paper…is your heart…the language…is His heart!”

Ask Him to fill in your blank today 🙂

Grace and peace in Yeshua the Messiah ❤
