I had the privilege of attending a wonderful Shabbat at a very close friends house; There was is such harmony in His perfect WORD, and so much we have found rotten and taken for granted. If you don't know what Shabbat is, here is a brief summary: As the sun begins to set on Friday evening, the Jewish tradition calls for Jews around the world to gather in their homes and synagogues to kindle the "Shabbat (Sabbath) lights. In a moment of mysterious transition, the worries and responsibilities of the week fade away, and the joy of a day of peace and rest begins. Traditionally, the woman lights the candles and says the "brakha" (blessing), surrounded by her family, who all say, "amen" to the ancient formula, "Blessed are You, Source of Life, who has drawn us close to You in holiness through Your commandments, and commanded us to kindle the flames of Shabbat." This is truly beautiful, and of course impacted my thoughts, prayers and message for you this morning.
SO WOW... When you listen, the Holy Spirit directs you to the set of verses that hit all the targets that He is speaking to you that moment, check out the below they will surely do that for you as you process your week and prepare for next week, next month, next season!! Amazing, Amazing, Amazing... Thank You Lord!!!
Remember our trials are good for us, but we do want them to end, right? Well our trials end essentially when we stop being stubborn or in willful disobedience; and chose FAITH. In that a state our perseverance turns into a refinery, producing YOU A NEW YOU "COMPLETE AND LACKING NOTHING". Resonate on those four words. WOW right, He didn't just say complete (which by itself is enough), but to make sure we get the power of it; He ADDS lacking nothing.
Without a doubt that is enough, it is huge, powerful and glorious. Then He ADDS more, here and it is the hidden message, the key; if you lack wisdom, ask and He will give it. Let me say it differently: if you are to stubborn, not sharp enough, lacking wisdom, have a low emotional quotient, in such disobedience you are blind, any of these things that would keep you from seeing the KEYS HE is giving us... Ask for it, He will give it no matter what!!!
The second part of the key is just as important as the first; clear what to do and clear what not to do instructions. Once you have prayed, you have asked; plainly BELIEVE. Don't keep trying other methods, ways, consulting, or those terrible horoscope articles. Once you made the decision to ask HIM, boom if you want it answered then CONSIDER it ANSWERED!!! Then WaLa, it is done! Believe me, this is real, and real powerful. So ponder, process, think on these verses... Receive His gifts and promises. Thank You Lord !!
“Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything. If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you. But when you ask, you must believe and not doubt, because the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind. That person should not expect to receive anything from the Lord. Such a person is double-minded and unstable in all they do.”
James 1:2-8 NIV
