Love comes in miracles
Laced inside His breath
He inhales mercy
Exhales grace
And pulls us to His chest

Stars spin and freely fly
At the mere shadow of His passing by
Glee twinkles and strikes a tune
Of Sonshine in early June

The cosmos plays
While earth awaits
It’s resurrection at Edens gates
No lack of patience, no stir of restless
There’s only trust He’ll surely bless us

No toys of evil
Tempt to play
Upon the faithless in dismay
For all the victory
Has been played out
Upon the Savior when He bled out

No self obsession
Can draw a breath
Loves conception seals the debt
A covenant forged
In timeless reeds
No hand could mold it
But Abba’s creeds

Single Words conception
Formed flawless perfection
An aged-weary sigh
That awaits as He draws nigh

Hold not a sorrow
Grasp not a hope
In anguished marrow
For His breath has awoken you

To endless joy-beams
Crafting the sky
Teaching anew how to praise
More glorious than sunrise or sunset rays

A wondrous leaping
On inner limbs
Spirit-born reflections begins
Riding the waves
Of crimson flow
Blinding the need to know

Trust, O, the sweetest refrain
Trust breathes life into dry bones again
Oh, sweet the soar on trustworthy wings
That needs no feathers
To make the air sing

Oh chosen gladness
That gouges the eyes of dispond
That awakens sacrifice
The true heart longs

Reaching ever for more to give
Nothing to have
Nothing to keep
Oh Song of no needing
Sing Thou your tune
Awaken the cry of blessed tomb
Empty now for all time
The last stanza of human crime

Peace pulls out her palette
Paints the future
And impregnates with her fertile stroke
The weakened human knees of those the Father walks with
Again in the garden
Where the Son made the choice for all time and seasons

Balance plays on the lap of peace
Forever a child
Forged in the fire of timeless love
Holds out his hand to the Father above

Now at His side
The Keeper of trust
Pours out His armor
On human rust
Now blanketed in gold
And righteous crowns
Kept polished and ready
Where no sin abounds

Blades of grass promise
Peddles of flowers assure
Snow flakes refract and refresh
Feeding the truth in prisms
Barren limbs reach without doubt
So shall we, the ones so hard fought for!
So gloriously won! 
The Ones died for, now die daily
Flesh wrestles with cracked limbs
Breaking through with Spirit-soaked acclaim!
Shouting the Name of all Names!
Oh to be Holy, oh to be His!
The lovers kiss bids the wedding begun!

Sing, oh soul of redemption
His Kingdom Come!
Thy will is done!
On this earth-dusty, reborn soul, we are One!

♡ Grace and Shalom in Yeshua the Messiah ♡

Misinterpretation Exchanged for Perspective

April 20, 2015 at 12:10 am (Devotionals, Thoughts to Ponder, WSGD Newes) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , )

We all know how many read so many scriptures but they get to a part where God says He’ll turn His hands against them and slam the book closed; feeling justified that they can validate their lack of belief in Him “because any God that turns against us must not be a “good” God.” But they fail to keep reading! Look! Look what His hand turning against us means.

1) cleansing
2) restoration

Inarguably painful and often difficult these processes, but then LOOK at the results.

1) righteousness
2) faithful (trusting)
3) redeemed

These are the new names we are given. It’s so often overlooked that the reason God’s hand is turned against us is because we first turn away from Him. Much as we often seem to “turn against” our children when they disobey, in order to correct, protect, teach, and guide them into the right way of living. So God, because He loves us makes sure we “go it alone” when we live inside our bodies and our hours and minutes of living doing things our own way instead of the way that brings life. God is the Author of Life. He uses death to His own Life purposes, but does not authorize such ways of living. One could aptly picture His hand swooping up to our behinds for a tap, as His hand turning against us. Or smacking a hand before it reaches a hot burner. In the latter, should the hand continue not to heed the warning, He steps back and let’s us learn the hard way. Ready to run cold water over the burn and apply grace as His salve to the wound. It’s stunning how often and quickly He knows when to let the hand be burned instead of constantly playing referee. Notice how He didn’t show up at that tree in the garden when the snake struck Eve. He didn’t get in her face and say “hey, remember what I said, don’t listen to him he’s a liar!” Nor did He get in Satan’s face and say, “Leave her alone, she’s mine, be gone!” It smacks up against our logic. Why didn’t He? “A good God would have intervened!” Right?

Ahhhh, such is the reality that His ways are not ours and His thoughts fall into a realm of Wisdom we are incapable of without Him. It’s like the difference between justice and fairness. God is just. Always, one hundred percent of the time. Yet, we equate justice with our idea of fairness. A huge mistake. I beg your time for an example. Let’s turn to a parable Yeshua (Jesus) gave. It’s found in Matthew 20, verses 1-16. He starts out by saying, “The Kingdom of heaven is like…” and proceeds to tell of a farmer who goes out to find workers for his field. He goes out at 9am, noon, and three, hiring workers at each time. Then goes out at an hour before quitting time and hires another. The workers come in to collect their pay and find that everyone got the same pay, no matter how long they had worked. Needless to say the first worker was feeling the weight of mankind’s version of fairness and pressed into the farmer to express his point of view. The farmer replies that its his land and his money and the worker agreed to work for the money that now laid in his hand, and to focus on his word being true in his hand and not the method in which he applied to everyone else. The last words Yeshua says in this story is, “thus the last shall be first and the first shall be last” Often these words further confuse the one without eyes to see beyond their idea of fairness.

But let’s look at a different point of view. Each worker has a family to feed. God’s perspective includes everything, everything we effect as well as our own hearts needing growth. God tends to the needs of all, not the pride of one. Each worker went home and was able to feed their families, not just take pride in a whole days work. The grace given to the last worker of the day, likely fed his family well beyond the hour of work in one single day, causing him to work harder. The grace given to the first worker, having been rejected and replaced with pride and puffiness, likely didn’t meet the needs of his family much beyond the day he was saying goodnight to. Ungratefulness is the symptom of pride. Pride loves to critisize authority. I love this parable because it shows how God keeps His Word to care for us, not depending on our interpretation of earning or deserving but on His Word alone. He meets the needs of countless people when He meets the needs of the one.

Understanding what it means when God turns against and when He deals in justice verses our idea of what correction and fairness looks like is a flood of revelation to the soul. It makes it so easy to have our minds “changed” and draw near to Him who has all things well in hand. Just like He did in the garden, and every second since. Truly all glory and honor and praise belongs to Him and Him alone! Worthy is the One who is, was, and is to come!

Misinterpretation is also a symptom of pride. Pride is the ultimate blinder of all God is and all He does and His heart that is the only good heart in existence. Perspective is everything, give yours to God and the exchange will change your life, and likely countless lives you effect everyday as long as you draw breath.
