Doing is Believing

John 14:21
Whoever has My commands and keeps them is the one who loves Me, and the one who loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I will love him and reveal Myself to him.

Remember the movie in the picture above? The Master told the student to wax the cars, and was specific how, paint the fence, sand the floor, and so on. Days of all these “chores” in the mind of Daniel was putting off his training to become an expert in karate. Tedious and mundane, hard, sweaty work, and days later irritation and confusion drive the student to challenge the Masters methods. Everyone in the audience had to pull their jaw up off the floor after the Master showed the student how each task had indeed trained without the mindset of fighting. It was brilliant! The student paid very close attention to do all that was asked of him from that point, realizing that even if it seemed irrelevant, he’d learn later, there is no such thing.

It was a cunning and master stroke of writing – that movie. I know Who was behind it. The Master of all, Adonai, the creator of the Universe. This was the purpose of the movie, not the love story, though it was nice (clean, remember those days?), not the picking on and fighting back of teenagers; but the contrast of two teachers and their students, their method and motive, how like mirrors the students of the bad teacher were, and yet unique, still individual Daniel was under the teaching hand of Miyagi. He taught through life, he taught through patience and peace, first to achieve those things in the student, then to practice it in karate.

The quote above in the picture is exactly what God does. There’s a saying; “man says, ‘show me and I’ll trust you,’ God says, ‘trust Me and I’ll show you.’
A true statement! Horizontally (man to man) this is exactly how we should be. Vertically (man to God) trust comes with much earned credit from God. It should be automatic from us, then He shows us, like Miyagi how the obeying of Him has armed us, humbled us, and transformed us into the people He created us to be when we were not yet a physical reality. His commands are written in the Word, but also given into our daily lives (should we ask and listen) thus His voice leads and guides us as it did Yeshua (Jesus) and we become like our Savior. Yet, Yeshua is Yeshua and we are who we are, I’m Lisa, not Yeshua, but like Him in that I listen to and obey the Father. My believing becoming more and deeper with each action taken upon hearing His instruction. Countlessly my jaw is dropped after doing what He said, and impatiently challenging His ways, He shows me what each task taught without me knowing what was being fortified in my muscle and memory with each obedience. Thus I have a living, breathing, relationship with the Master of the Universe! Like the wind, I never know from whence I came or where I’m going at the onset of doing as He says, but I always come away full of assurance that I’m in His will and being grown into something I couldn’t imagine on my best day I could be. His child! A living Word! His love poured out through me! Like Yeshua, but yet never exactly as His perfection in such obeying far exceeds the human reckoning. God doesn’t want a bunch of ‘saviors’, He sent One, and that was and is all that’s needed. He wants children, children to come home to the real Life that He made for them.

What joy it brings to know my trust will never be ill placed in Him! Adventures follow the task of obeying! Jaw dropping moments, where my “floor sanding, fence painting, car washing” duties prove to be far more the object of the desired result than learning kicks and hits!

May the Lord give you many jaw dropping moments as these last days unfold, and may our trust in Him become solid and steady with each leap to obey! Thanking and praising Him with each action, each word, each thought. Glory to God in the Highest!

♡ Grace and peace in Yeshua the Messiah ♡

As My Magnet

July 12, 2013 at 11:35 am (Devotionals) (, , )

The following is taken from Progress of Another Pilgrim by Frances J. Roberts.

(Speaking in the Lord’s voice to the reader)

Many there are whom I am drawing, and what will you if I have chosen to use you as My magnet? A magnet’s effectiveness is constituted by virtue of what it IS. It cannot of itself either move or speak. It simply IS, and on the strength of what it is, it exerts its influence. One thing only is necessary for its operation – that is, to be brought into proximity and working distance to the other object. Even so, let Me move you by My hand into the places of vital influence.
All the rest of the work I will accomplish through the power of My Spirit within you.

Grace and peace in Yeshua the Messiah ❤

Deeper into the Son

November 6, 2012 at 2:45 am (Poems) (, , , , , , , , , , , )

Silent sway, my mind must stay
Aloft on Your great Fountain
Awakened deep within my soul
I climb, but a wispy mountain

A Word, a Thought
You count them not
As if accumulation completes
What Your spoken Word repeats

A gate wide open
A Holy Human Token
Aloud an “Abba Father”
What credit to me?
None can I see

A redirected periphial skew
A sight given beyond my view
Hold me there! In the sight of You!
Son of every beholding!

Drops of blood, clearly mark
The way to which, this heart must go
Walking, walking – no surface impeding
Water flows, from His eyes, His side, to cushion His feet
Tears clean what fresh water doesn’t dare
Each rung, You hang, and hold me fair

No looking down! A mighty fall
Back to my own perceiving
Afloat on You, and the very air You’re breathing
Circumsized eyes can see where You are leading

Embraced in a language reserved
For a people called and preserved
Bread is blessed and broken
And fed to a multitude of sins

Love is the leaven of heaven
It rises the road to its offering
Capsizing the enemies subtle lie
“Did He really say you will die?”
Love whispered back threw the holes in His hands
“Life is here!”

Deeper into the Son I dive
Following, following I feel for those holes
Doubt is not the power, held within Your presence, only confirmation
Real, more real than even the surface I ken to hold me up

Deeper into the Son
Deeper into Your temple
Better is one day buried in You
Than a million cast aside from my Home
All rising again and again!

“Love Me, Follow”…His voice is not hollow
Full, over-flowing, full of living rebirth!
Harken me onward
Mighty Carpenter, continue to build
This narrow path stretching
From me to You

Deeper into the Son!
Engraved with Obedience
Carved and shaped by Trust
Molded and made for Worship
Oh!! What He makes of dust!

Deeper into the Son
I go, I run, I hide, I seek
Yet He is
He is!
The Way, the Truth, the Life
He calls and His own – Come!
Deeper, deeper into the Son!
