Unpredictable

There’s this thing about Adonai that I LOVE… and completely throws me for a loop.

His unpredictability.

I LOVE  that I can’t see Him coming at times. Cause if I could I’m not sure I’d recognize Him; which puts a little bit of healthy fear in my bones. Or I’d run away; convinced in my feeble mind that He deserves so much more than me; cause after all these years and all He’s convinced me that He is capable of forgiving and giving and loving; there’s still this seemingly invincible voice inside that almost… can’t believe Him. Or,  I’d push Him away, hanging on for dear life to a lie I have believed about myself, or someone else, or Him Himself. That good olé flesh dying to stay deadly alive.

With all that His unpredictably has shown me…All that beautifully orchestrated wonder that takes my breath away every single time. How is it somehow I am always surprised, amazed? Remembering… endless mercies, unfathomable love, timeless rescues and cherishings, unspeakable revelations of things beyond my ken to have imagined, trustworthiness that falls far afield a human ability to grasp; yet every time He pulls the speech from my mouth in awe and comes at my mind/heart from an angle not taught in any school of learning on earth. I LOVE His unpredictability! I am so thankful for it!

But woe unto me that at the same time it confounds me and even at times flat out angers me! Truly King David understood what I am saying! For he wrote…
What is man that You would think of Him?
How great is Your mercy
How unspeakable Your Love
David, hiding out in caves; throwing stones at giants who challenge the notion of our God, arranging a convenient death to possess an illusion of happiness in another human being, dancing naked in the streets in worship, the only human King to have led a nation to the One True God! Writer of the Psalms that have comforted and convicted a million hearts to say: I want a heart like that!

Then Adonai sends His Son; Yeshua – Jesus! THIS should have been at least a little “predictable”! After all He said He would,  and just like He did! Yet still we can’t comprehend Him coming in such a humble and “weak” way! Unpredictable, unfathomable, incredible! The human mind can reason… We didn’t choose to be here; true. So can Elohim! So He takes the whole lot of every sin and it’s effect on every soul He ever imagines and takes the responsibility and… dies! I can fathom laying my life down for many people; some I love even those that I “struggle” to love… But Hitler? And all those who followed his lead knowing… knowing deep down his was an evil born outside human comprehension? Oh yes! This unpredictability throws my sensibilities into black holes. I even get angry that He forgives me at times!

He writes the whole of His heart in the stars! Every blade of grass speaks of His wonder! Then I read of a God who won’t relent until we repent. What is this relentlessness? Patience that avails no one’s ability to stretch. Mercy and grace that defies “logic”. Passion that goes beyond the limits of knowing rooted in LOVE! Yet there’s only ONE WAY. One Gate. One Name by which all human kind can be saved! Relentless, firm, steadfast, true. Unchanging, unpredictable!
Giving us the ability to discern with wisdom yet confounding the best of it at the same time!

What do we do with Him? Oh!!! The ache! Look!!! Look at what we do with Him! Tears are a poor expression of my brokenness at the thought of all that’s been done in His Name and in human skin He gave life to! Just my own feeble attempts to justify my existence… sickens the soul.

How do I explain this mystery? This God who is Truth, who is Love, who is Everything? Who is unpredictable and amazing and maddeningly REAL? How do I qualify Him? Oh that I could with words! Oh that He’d give me a million actions to prove Him a day! Oh that I could reflect Him without my flaws! Yet again… unpredictably He shows me that those too are part of His vast store house of beauty!

Tonight I lay my head upon the chest of a God who capsizes my world while He holds it in stillness and wonder and peace. And I am whole, complete and for just right now convinced He is as predictable as the mercy that proved new this morning. Tomorrow He will be unpredictably merciful again!

Wonder of wonders! What A Mighty God we serve!!!

Grace and peace in Yeshua the Messiah

Character

June 10, 2013 at 3:40 am (Thoughts to Ponder) (, , , , , , , , , , )

image

The above quote was a “line” in a movie I watched recently. I wrote it down…it grabbed the attention that ponders long after initial reception. It brought to mind a similar concept from another movie where this teacher had a class of resistant students, prone to give up out of a victim mentality than fight for what gifts were available for the taking. She gave the whole class an A and said, “But its up to you to keep it.”

As I chewed on the above quote these questions fell like assembly line parts in my thoughts.

What is character?

Where does it come from?

What defines its full development?

As is my habit of late…I asked those questions…search my own resources for answers and then approached my Heavenly Father,  handed Him my “paper” and asked Him to “grade” it…then He tudored me in the correcting, teaching, redefining and settled my heart in what for now He would like me to stay firm on. I say for now, with emphasis on now, because He never stops expanding and developing truth in me. As I live He often settles me where I need to put to action a lesson, but later will move me again in correcting, teaching, redefining, refining that which He began at another “point in time”. Character is a constant state of development. Character is defined by a Who not a what. Character is Lived not a theory to adopt. Its structure is taught to the mind/heart; but its built on the movement of actions taken based on what He teaches.

Example:
Honesty is a character.
God is Honesty/Truth. His person, nature, and every action He takes personifies this truth.
As the Master/Maker/Origin of Honesty He alone can teach what its actions look like.
He may teach, don’t cheat. Cheating is anything that says you know something you don’t, have something you don’t, don’t have something you do and so on; and making out for your advantage the implication of that which is untrue.
Its lying, albeit rather indirectly at times. Often called a “little white lie”. Often explained by saying, “Well, its not all a lie.” Or explained as okay because one must protect themselves by doing so. Or excused because a greater authority “cheats” so “now you have to” to keep from being cheated. (I.E. cheating on taxes).

Now where He asks us to stay and stand firm is that for a time…wherever you have cheated from the least to the greatest you Turn and do the opposite of cheating. This can take some time…but the development of this character will “move on” to all sorts of “lie lessons”. Until He has decided our honesty has been fully developed. If we still draw breath in our earthen fallen shells, we are in constant development. Our character of honesty forms and takes shape to reflect Him, yet we will always need to keep learning. There is no graduation from Character class. (This lesson teaches the character…humility)

Jeremiah 10:23

Adonai (Lord), I know the way of humans is not in their control, humans are not able to direct their steps as they walk.

Mark 8:36-38 ~ Yeshua (Jesus) speaking…

Indeed, what will it benefit a person if he gains the whole world but forfeits his life? What could a person give in exchange for his life? For if someone is ashamed of Me and of what I say in this adulterous and sinful generation, the Son of Man also will be ashamed of him when He comes in His Father’s glory with holy angels.

Romans 5:1-5

So, since we have come to be considered righteous by God because of our trust, let us continue to have shalom (peace/completeness) with God through our Lord, Yeshua the Messiah. Also through Him and on the ground of our trust, we have gained access to this grace in which we stand; so let us boast about the hope of experiencing God’s glory. But not only that, let us boast in our troubles; because we know that trouble produces endurance, endurance produces character, and character produces hope; and this hope does not let us down, because God’s love for us has already been poured out in our hearts through the Ruach HaKodesh (Holy Spirit) who has been given to us.

One of the simplest examples of the quote above is to reword it just so:
If you are a virgin, the only way to “keep it” is to remain sexually pure. Once you loose it, it can not be “brought back”. The profoundness is obvious, it is easier to keep virginity than to recover it! Because once it is lost, there is no going back. Though keeping it may not be easy; compared to the toil of attempts to “recover” it – keeping is a cake walk!

Likewise, the Commandments of Character, God gave by speaking, teaching, directing at the beginning. Then He gave them “character development time” in action…to prove the statement above. Its a whole lot easier to refrain from lying than to lie and try to regain trust. Not easy to do always but the alternative is harder! Again, a lie cannot be undone. Only exposed and repented of. Recovery of integrity is much harder work than the hard work of keeping it. We start with “A’s”; keeping them is never easy, but easier than bringing the grade back from an “F”.

The Word of God and His ways are very elementary in concept. I praise Him for this!!

What Women Want ~ Interlude

November 15, 2012 at 11:54 pm (WSGD Newes) (, , , , , , , , )

image

The hardest thing to accept in life is that so many of the lessons we turn full tilt into to learn often come when the damage of ignorance and pride have already left a deep impression on those we love the most. From not pressing into the learning until its in many cases “too late”.  ~ LV

I call this an interlude because I feel this urgent need to clarify a few things. For those who don’t know me, this may come across like a huge string of humility. For those who do, it may be that you haven’t “nodded your head” so much in so many years! “Yep, thats true!” your brain will say.

As God has impressed upon me (that’s putting it mildly, placed a burning coal of fire under my conscience is more like it) to write this series; I’ve been a bit argumentative! You could say I sound much like Moses did with the Burning Bush.

Why me? No one will listen to me! I gave my only birth child up for adoption. And my step children, O Lord, You know they were born of my heart! Yet they have never come to me for advise! I did more things wrong than right. And quite honestly I feel like a total hypocrite saying any of this stuff! O, I agree with all You have taught me, and Your way. Yet how can I convince anyone to listen to this when my own children are grown and no longer home, I made all the wrong choices, and here I sit detailing what You have taught me, all I bleed in repentance over, but my “turning” can’t be exampled by actions quite the same. Yes, yes, I have turned and do what You say now, but ….Yes, I know its not my ways being taught…yes, its not about me, yes, yes I will obey and leave the rest to You.” Sigh…

I tend to focus where I have the most regret, healthy regret, not self-depreciating condemnation. How the veil of the modern day woman dictated my actions as a mother. Wife, sister, friend, daughter all fall in there too, but my biggest crater of pain is the impression those years left on my son and daughters, nieces too. I mean, oowww! It truly feels like its too late, and in the sense that I can not go back it is. God is the God of forward, straight onward, and right through. Straightening what has been twisted is completely His domain. The past is not something we can change, only today. He stands out ahead, hand out-stretched and eyes full of “Trust Me”, telecommunicating “I’ve got all that, don’t deceive yourself into thinking it’s even a little bit in your hands! I forgive you, now lets watch Me change you, here, now, today.”

Yet, the feeling of hypocrisy just would not get out of my face! Voices like,
“YOU didn’t do that with YOUR kids! YOU can’t hope to convince anyone now. Look at your life now, no kids to raise, the one’s you have either do all they can to convince you their “just fine” when they’re not, or they simply don’t talk to you! And all your lady friends…they all say ‘Hmmphff, easy for YOU to say now! But say and do all that with kids at home NOW, with all the financial pressures NOW!’ YOU don’t know how hard it is, what with a Husband who supports you like yours does, and no children to try to “rewire” living at home to “thank you” for your obedience!”

Yes, I know where these “voices” come from, I know who’s behind them; but there’s some truth in there that’s hard to ignore! As a woman, we are more than wives, daughters, mothers; ie: the roles we fill. This is the main focus of these posts, yet sometimes its just plain hard to separate that! It takes an act of God! Indeed it does! The burning coal that drives me here is just that. God is on the job! He is full of compassion in His mission! He see’s it all, and can enter into all of its frayed edges and cross-contamination and His divine enablement is 100% guaranteed! It’s just as true, that there is no such thing as “too late”. Did He not cover all my own folks’ mistakes, right here inside me? Has He not done exactly what He said He would? “I will never leave you or forsake you, even when your parents do!”

So, paired with this odd confessional, my emphasis before heading into Part 4, is this;
As you read, take it in as an introduction to truth, but let Abba lead you to repentance! It will not look like what you think it will, there’s no formula. No quick fixes either. There’s the Truth and the submission to Him in setting you free. He is so detailed in forming and shaping each of us to His exact “specifications”, look around you, He is far from interested in making the same thing twice! There is no methodology to walking with God. I hate books and lectures that start with “4 (any number) easy ways to…talk with God, hear God, be a good wife (mother, friend, etc)” Dear fellowsheep hear me! BEWARE of these kinds of learning materials. The word easy should be your first clue that somethings amiss! I don’t care if the number of “steps” is 1000, they will only apply in a 1 to 1 ratio exactly that way, 1 time. God makes no repeats, the only thing that is universal and the same for everyone is that Yeshua (Jesus) is the Way to the Father, the Truth to guide us, the Life to give us. That’s it! He can use soap opera’s to get His child’s attention, and cartoons another’s, and sports another’s. All to bring them to the same place of learning but even that will move differently for each. Formula’s are for earth bound techniques, NOT Temple building, Kingdom bringing, Child rearing in heaven’s! Not even a little bit! It’s the lack of predictability of walking with God that scare us the most! Trade that fear in for the Truth! God may be unpredictable, but He is totally trustworthy! His ways may be hard, but they are, always have been and always will be the absolute best way for us! Easy is a lie. Hard can be redefined. Know that it is one step at a time. One little thing here, thought there, allowing ourselves to be reeducated by the Creator of our whole being, and our children’s and our husband’s and our friend, families, neighbors, co-workers – all of us! Only He can work in one person that takes all they touch into the account of “working all things for the good”! He’s an expert at it!

The road can look rough for us when we start looking at the lies we’ve bought as truth, the compromises we made we thought were ok, the ways we have shaped our own lives instead of letting Him, the way we have defined God that stands in complete opposition to who He really is! Its not for the person looking to make life more comfortable. Its down right humbling and hugely rewarding! We won’t get the credit for any of the changes that incur, but we won’t want to either. This goes for men learning from God’s design what they were made for, not just women. Hence no one is “ahead or behind” the other in the blame factor. The requirement for sin, is being human. One exception, Yeshua. That’s it. Everyone else is, does, and will. All of them make up the mess we live in. The “heavy” is not on women nor is it on men.

I have made huge mistakes in my life, huge. I have failed my loved ones, still do. I am no poster-child for what gets posted here, only a sold out, actively pursuing the change believer in what God has taught me through my short years so far. Today I am no hypocrite to the words I say and actions I choose. Thanks be to God alone. I don’t know why He asks me to speak out, now that my children are grown and gone and it seems so easy to say but not required to do if they were still here in my home. I can only say that I have went the opposite direction as I did, as Gods woman child, now. Its has been far from easy. Yet everyday I choose to obey Him, the less I care what it has “cost” me in comparison to the closeness of my relationship with Him. Not only Him, but those He has been faithful to bring into my life as brothers and sisters along the way. The ones that have stuck with me in all the mess, and see my heart for Him and as such creates that special bond that nothing even imagined can shake. Relationship is Gods mission, with Him in us and within His family, semantics are nothing.

Grace and peace in Yeshua the Messiah ❤

The Gentle Call

November 10, 2012 at 11:31 pm (Remodeling the Mind) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

image

Acts 3:19-20
“Therefore, repent and turn to God, so that your sins may be erased; so that times of refreshing may come from the Lord’s presence; and He may send the Messiah appointed in advanced for you, that is, Yeshua (Jesus).

Matthew 4:17
From that time on, Yeshua (Jesus) began proclaiming, “Turn from your sins to God, for the Kingdom of God is near!”

The strength of the proclamation, “Turn, repent, go now to Yeshua (Jesus) and live!” has lost something. Is it in translation? Is it the sound of “fire and brimstone” religion? Why doesn’t the miracle of those words produce the awe and eager turning that it invites?

For myself, I know that much was “lost in translation”. There is a very big difference between “I am sorry” and “I repent“. Repentance is a turning, and action in the reverse of the present course. Sorry, is a feeling, a sadness of a recognized wrong or hurt done.
Let me try to illustrate.

A person lies to someone. Lets say they lie to people alot. Examples range from where they were “to spare someone’s feelings”. To what they want verses what they say they want, in order to manipulate things and people to their own advantage. They lie, first to themselves. Then the action comes from the first lie within to the outward lie to others. These kinds of “little white lies” (I have no idea why that saying ever came to be, as there is NO such thing as a little lie, white, black, red, purple…who classifies lies by color??) are the deadliest of all. They start inside where no one but God and the person themselves can see or know. The person who deceives themselves is not capable of truth to anyone else.

So in the illustration above what does sorry “look like”. Well if not caught in the lie, sorry may simply be a mild irritation that now one must remember their lie. A feeling of “inconvenience”. If caught, one may say sorry and have feelings of sadness that they have lost trust or respect. A sense of disappointment in oneself for lying may rise to the surface. Even a determined thought not to do it again. But, the next day having only turned momentarily from lying they are “set up” to do so again. Why? Because repentance is the cure for sin, not just acknowledgement that it is. Sorry is self-absorbed.

Repentance is a turning to God. He is our 24 hours a day, always on-hand counselor, adviser, teacher and “order-giver” if you will. He teaches and instructs us to our motive for lying, in His presence while doing so we understand and develop a strong aversion and distaste for the sin being scrutinized. He then sends us forth in the opposing direction to train-in the correct living. If we lie, He tells us to do the other/opposite thing, tell the truth. This starts within where we “talk” to ourselves. If we steal, He sends us down the road of giving. If we gossip, He sends us towards speaking only that which uplifts and invites love of others. We choose to turn to Him and take action on His advise. Repentance.
We can NOT repent without God. It is as impossible to repent without God, as it is to breathe without lungs.

Repentance and turning are invitations to really living! The best kind of living a human being can ever achieve!! It comes straight out of Gods heart of love, grace and mercy as a gift! Then when we “blow it” again, we have the greatest gift, Yeshua’s own righteousness that gets applied to our wound! So continued relationship with God can continue without delay due to our sin. What an amazing and powerful gift! To be able to walk and talk and be lead by the One who created all things!

The Book of Proverbs is an amazing book of just such gifts of leading, guiding and instruction sent straight from the very heart of God with love and wisdom! It refers to two “she’s, her’s, and women”. One is Wisdom, the one who turns to God. The other is Wicked, the one who turns away from God. Wicked is referred to as a harlot. Wisdom is the beautiful beloved bride of God. One points to the Way that leads to Him. The other points to the way one can go that will lead to having to turn around in order to get going back toward Who you were made for. You can almost always put Yeshua’s (Jesus’) name in place of any of the “good” words; wisdom knowledge, counsel, reproof, direction, correction, commands, my words, understanding, insight, discernment, common sense, justice, fairness, good path. He is the gate by which we enter into a Kingdom He ushered in the day He died. When He said, “It is finished!” I think of this as the little instruction book of the detailed “Learning of turning”.

I will list some Proverbs below, boldening the words that connect all from above.

Proverbs 2:10-15
For wisdom will enter your heart, knowledge will be enjoyable to you, discretion will watch over you, and discernment will guard you. They will save you from the way of evil and from those who speak deceitfully, who leave the paths of honesty to walk the ways of darkness, who delight in doing evil and take joy in being stubbornly deceitful, from those whose tracks are twisted and paths are perverse.

Proverbs 3:32
but the perverse is an abomination to Adonai (the Lord), but He shares His secret counsel with the upright.

Proverbs 4:4-6
He too taught me; He said to me, “Let your heart treasure My Words; keep My commands, and live; gain wisdom, gain insight; don’t forget or turn from the words I am saying. Don’t abandon (wisdom); then She will preserve you; love Her, and She will protect you.

Proverbs 10:32
The lips of the righteous know what is wanted, but the mouth of the wicked knows deceit.

Proverbs 12:22
Lying lips are an abomination to Adonai, but those who deal faithfully are His delight.

Proverbs 16:23
The wise man’s heart teaches his mouth, and to his lips adds learning.

Proverbs 19:2
To act without knowing how you function is not good; and if you rush ahead, you will miss your goal.

Proverbs 20:27
The human spirit is a lamp of Adonai; it searches one’s inmost being.

Proverbs 20:11
The character of even a child is known by how he acts, by whether his deed are pure and right.

Proverbs 16:1
A person is responsible to prepare his heart, but how a tongue speaks is from Adonai.

The idea of turning and repentance was meant to be as a drink of Living Water to a soul. Yet I will admit, most don’t teach it with the emphasis on the benefits born out of the heart of God’s compassion anymore. It lacks the patience and kind instruction that Yeshua displayed. It lacks invitation when spoken or written laced with condemnation. The Counselor I meet with every hour of every day, teaches me. He doesn’t harass me. He woo’s, and gently guides. He LOVES me. He starts from the inside and what comes out, is truly an amazing gift! Repentance in turning to Him and away from my own thinking (which makes sense to me at the time) is a miracle! My hope, my prayer is that in the character and name of Yeshua (Jesus); that this message becomes the gentle call to all whom He loves.

Grace and peace in Yeshua the Messiah ❤

Truth ~ Reality

November 7, 2012 at 4:55 am (WSGD Newes) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , )

image

John 14:6
Yeshua (Jesus) said, “I Am the Way – and the Truth and the Life; no one comes to the Father except through Me.

The results of the 2012 Elections here in the USA have raised really really good questions. What some see as disaster, often finds their way to the questions that lead one Home, rather than in circles. This is the beauty of “things not going the way one hopes, planned, or expects”. Or at least it can be. The same is true as well, such circumstances can cause one to ask no question that profits a thing to ask it. Such as; “Why are the stars…stars?” Or, “What is the problem with people?” They both require a Source that knows the answer and is totally trustworthy. The former question God may answer, but only in part. The latter, God is notorious for turning that question back on itself as the place to begin in answering it. “What is the problem with you?”
See there, I have just noted the Source of Truth, at least the only One who has ever been worthy of it!

As of 11:15 MST, the air was full of shock and bereavement amongst those who voted for Romney, sure that this was God’s man for America! I noticed the shock wasn’t so much that Romney lost, as people felt that God had. I found myself at a loss. Why in heavens name (and I say that with reverence), why would ANYONE assume Romney is/was uniquely God’s man? According to Romney the “buck doesn’t stop” at Yeshua (Jesus) the Messiah! He is a honestly spoken Mormon. Is it the Mormon religions adherence to morality that deceives people so? The Pharisees were very moral. So, what did the Truth say about them?

Matthew 15:7-9 (Yeshua – Jesus speaking)
You hypocrites! Isaiah was right when he prophesied about you,
‘These people honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me. Their worship of me is useless, because they teach man-made rules as if they were doctrines.'”
*Isaiah 29:13

This was just one of many times the Truth – Yeshua – called the “moral police” hypocrites. Which begs the next question.

“When did morals ever become a saving grace to anyone much less a country?”

Didn’t work out too well for Israel. Rule keeping can be done by donkey’s, monkeys, ANTS! Why keep a rule? Now there’s a question!

Almost, everyone at least says they know why lying is a good thing not to do! Almost! But who can say why severe adherence to honesty is good? As many as those who acknowledge the former? Not on your life! Let me illustrate.

Ladies, we have all been here. You are sitting with a group of people talking down about someone you all know. Now it may be that the low-dog talking, mocking, giggling is based on an action they did or do that’s “true”. But! Deep down you knew…you know…that what you are at the least joining in with is wrong, at the most outright adding to. Why? How? How do we know this deep down? But then do it anyway? Morality has nothing to do with it…if you’re honest. It’s because that person – the object of “fun” is YOU! Everyone gets perceived as wrong, dumb, stupid, ugly, (the list goes on)…everyone. Yet, no one really knows why. Except God. God loves each of His creatures, only He can judge. This is the Truth that gets ignored here. No one can be morally honest enough with themselves without an act of God!

In the interest of not excluding…
Men, how about you? You are driving down the road, keeping the law (ok, keeping up with traffic which is breaking the speed limit by varying degrees – honesty check #1). So anyway, someone starts “riding your tail”, then whips around you, and cuts you off! Then they have the nerve to “give you the bird” for their lack of civility! You proceed to let out a “blessing” in the form of a curse. Tell me you don’t justify your actions because of theirs?! Tit for tat is morality right? Wrong!

Both these are not gender specific, at least, I – a woman admit I’ve done both. But you get the picture?
Morality is:
A) Subjective
B) Depends on the motive for its need.
C) Completely useless to change a person from inside their own skin.

So…where did “morals” come from?
Easy…Exodus 20, or better…the God who created the Universe, the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. The God of the Bible, The Messiah, Yeshua, Jesus, where the “Buck really stops” Genesis to Revelations…period. No book of Mormon, no adds, no subtractions.
So how can Romney be God’s man? And not Obama? At least Obama doesn’t claim to be righteous! Or a christian. Or a follower of Jesus. Truth is…neither of these, nor ANY other person on our ballots was “God’s man” or America’s hope. He sent that Man, 2000 years ago. Truth is America doesn’t want the Truth, God’s Man, or morality. Hard to accept? No, unless the Truth has not taken presidency inside your heart. Who’s to say God didn’t just save us a whole new set of troubles? Whats easier to tackle, the trouble you know or the ones you don’t? God has not left the “planet”. We on the other hand can’t stop complaining about it, or trying to “get off it”! Reality? Why is TV, gaming, computer internet social media, for some work, some hobbies, some sports, some politics, some survival, hunting, pornography…and the list goes on…
Why is this the chosen coarse of action by people? Because the Truth is…to us reality is just honestly – no fun. Some would say fair instead, no matter…its offensive! Uncomfortable to be severely honest to a “high moral” degree.

So…what do we say to the Election results in America 2012?

I’ll quote the Truth.

Romans 13:1-2
Everyone is to obey the governing authorities. For there is no authority that is not by God. Therefore, whoever resist the authorities is resisting what God has instituted, and those who resist will bring judgement on themselves.

Isaiah 45:5-7
I am Adonai (the Lord); there is no other; besides Me there is no God. I am arming you, although you don’t know Me, so that those from the east and those from the west will know that there is none besides Me – I am Adonai; there is no other. I form light, I create darkness; I make well-being, I create woe; I, Adonai, do all these things.

Psalms 103:19
Adonai has established His Throne in heaven; His kingly power rules everything.

Proverbs 8:12-14; 22-31
I, Wisdom, live together with caution; I attain knowledge and discretion. The fear of Adonai is hatred of evil. I hate pride and arrogance, evil ways and duplicitous speech. Good advise is Mine and common sense; I am insight, power is Mine.
Adonai made Me as the beginning of His way, the first of His ancient works. I was appointed before the world, before the start, before earth’s beginnings. When I was brought forth, there were no ocean depths, no springs brimming with water. I was brought forth before the hills, before the mountains had settled in place; He had not yet made the earth, the fields or even the earth’s first grains of dust. When He established the heavens, I was there. When He drew the horizon’s circle on the deep, when He set the sky’s above in place, when the fountains of the deep poured forth, when He prescribed boundaries for the sea, so that its water would not transgress His command, when He marked out the foundations of the earth, I was with Him as someone He could trust. For Me, everyday was pure delight, as I played in His presence all the time, playing everywhere on His earth, and delighting to be with humankind.
*All of chapter 8 is worth a read 🙂

Any questions? If so, shall we endeavor to ask Him? And expect His answer, accept His silence, honor His absolute power? This is my prayer.

Grace and peace in Yeshua the Messiah ❤
