Never Initiate

***Taken from Progress of Another Pilgrim by Frances J. Roberts.  Page 120. (All emphasis mine)

My Child, go not without My direct guidance. Never be moved by outside influences alone. Check every action. Know that any move you make that is not confirmed in the Spirit is bound to bring confusion to all concerned. Be certain it is My will, and be not influenced by man.

For every move I initiate, I clear the way, and there is no strain or confusion. – Psalm 32:8

“I will instruct and teach you in this way that you are to go; I will give you counsel; My eyes will be watching you.”
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The work that follows/picks up from there.

Above the ‘Never be moved by outside influences alone’ He added: “There is always time to consult Me and time to wait for My answer.”

Then I always ask: where is this truth reflected in My Savior’s own words/actions. (This is how I can know that what I read from others is Truth)

John 5:19 – Yeshua (Jesus) speaking. ..

Therefore, Yeshua said this to them: “Yes, indeed! I tell you that the Son cannot do anything on His own, but only what He sees the Father doing; whatever the Father does; the Son also does too.”

John 8:28-29 – Yeshua speaking…

So Yeshua said, “When you lift up the Son of Man, then you will know that I Am (who I say I am), and that of myself I do nothing, but say only what the Father has taught Me. Also, the One who sent Me is still with Me; He did not leave Me to Myself, because I always do what pleases Him.”

John 12:49-50 – Yeshua speaking…

For I have not spoken on My own initiative, but the Father who sent Me had given Me a command, namely, what to say and how to say it. And I know the command is eternal Life. So what I say is simply what the Father has told Me to say.

There are many many more words Yeshua says in the Book of John. .. All of which reflect the words written by the Spirit into Frances Roberts heart and thereby, you and I in the devotional above. God is still writing His Words. .. inked by the Spirit. .. now onto each individual heart. .. no veils. And His Words are alive and active. .. no matter the language or the human hand that may be called to write them down. ..

God has always been the initiator of communicating to His people. He has always been more interested in making sure we go as He designed us to go. .. than we ever have or ever will be. Nothing will ever change that. Nothing can come between True reality and God’s will moving faithfully in it. Despite sin, evil, confusion, and all that works so hard to malign Him. Seeking His direction will never prove Him wrong. … us yes. .. often it does prove us wrong. .. but united in Him by His Grace. .. even then we cannot go wrong. Correction and calls to patience are the most growth producing ways God has ever given us.

Dig down deep into this fertile soil, O my soul, and wait. .. wait on the Lord!”

Everything Means Something

Isaiah 48:16-17
“Come close to Me, listen to this:
Since the beginning I have not spoken in secret, since the time began to be, I have been there and now Adonai Elohim (the Lord God) has sent Me and His Spirit.”
Thus says Adonai, your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel:
“I Am Adonai, your God, who teaches you for your own good, who guides you on the path you should take.”

In a moment, things can change. As I was struggling the other day, a series of memories dropped down the screen of my mind. On the surface it seemed rather redundant to me, felt very self-possessed, and I was so tempted to wring the collage of them away…until God spoke very astutely! “Wait!!”

They were a series of “self-taught” moments. I will list some.

~ I taught myself, to ride a bike
~ I taught myself, to swim
~ I taught myself to play piano

There were a few more, but the idea is the goal here. Then God’s “Wait!!”, I was still…my thoughts had been rolling into “how absurd! Those memories are meant to embitter and bring down!”
That was when He “jumped out in front” with His wait, like a person trying to stop a car for help. My “vehical” was ready to gun it outta there as my thoughts were perceiving at the time. I slammed on the proverbial brakes and “He walked over, opened the door and invited me to let Him drive me back through them,” His thoughts the view out the “wind-shield” of my mind. I am so glad His grace gave me courage to “hop out, switch seats, and go along for the ride”.

You see, most people have had someone; a parent, teacher, coach, friend, brother or sister, someone that connects to their memory of learning how to swim and ride a bike. It has always brought first sadness, then pride (not the “good” kind) that I “taught” myself. The temptation being, to be hurt that my folks, no one, seemed to care enough to teach me. Which could lead to bitterness, I have no interest in following that course. I also begged for piano lessons, and came away disappointed. So I decided I would just figure it out on my own. Again, sadness coupled with pride. I had already done “the work of forgiving my folks for their lack, and realized that many many teach themselves to ride a bike, swim, and play piano. So much of my heart had been healed and kept from bitterness and haughtiness. Again, thanks be to God alone!

As He “drove me back” though the scenery changed. The above verse was the “sound” of the “engine running in the cab of the car”.
I taught you…”
Giving me eyes to see. I was a stunned passenger!
“Everything means something! And it all points to Me!”
Images of His hands holding me in the water as I took my first forward moving stroke from dog paddle to swimming. His hand on the back of my bike, His whisper in my ear “You can do it!” as I peddled and wobbled into a somewhat steady ride on my bike. His whisper “I will teach you, see how the pattern of keys repeat, listen to how they change in pitch but the tone is the same…” as I doodled around on those black and white keys of the piano in my Grandparents Rec-room. The next series of “self-taught’s” revealing similar images and His voice leading the way, shattering any former illusion that sadness and pride ever had a place next to them in the first place! All my life He has been there, He was the absent parent, friend, coach, He was teaching and leading me in the way I should go. Everything really does mean something and it all points back to the “current Driver in the seat next to me”, right now!

I wonder how many people think those words are true.

Everything means something.

I wonder…if they don’t connect the “meanings” to the God who created them; how can it be true? I thank Him for everything in a new way today because it does! I wonder how religion can appeal, when the very real and personal relationship like the above is so Life changing! How believing God does not exist can bring meaning to anything? Yet, not to long ago, those memories held a vague impression changed by “religion”, and the sight and sound of His presence there took my memory from rather Godless to full of Him ~ meaning! His timing is/was perfect. The religion kept my heart from puffed up pride and bitterness, His Word is true! Now His presence shows me the meaning of it all! I am right on “target” in His hands!

Tears of gratitude fill my vision today 🙂 For Yeshua, my God, my Coach, my Rabbi, my Teacher, my Way, my Truth, my Life, my Counselor…my Everything, my Meaning.

Grace and peace in Yeshua the Messiah ❤
