As I pressed into Yahweh for today’s Message, He spoke “They Eye of the Storm”. He then showed me one of His precious daughters standing in the Eye of the Storm with her face up to the Heavens and her arms raised in Praise. He brought me right down into the eye of the Storm to show me and let me feel what was happening at that exact moment. I felt a great Peace and calmness. His golden LIGHT was shining on her face. Her focus was fully on Him and not the storm around her. Although there was chaos, destruction, and the darkness of the storm swirling around, He had her protected in an impossible way.
“Though I walk in the midst of trouble, You preserve my life; You stretch out Your hand against the wrath of my enemies, and Your right hand delivers me.” Psalm 138:7
He spoke, “The Storm is upon us but fear not, I am with you. Remain in Me and I will remain in you. Listen intently for my Voice. I will continue to guide you to safety as you lean on My Understanding and not your own. Do not shift your eyes to the darkness and chaos, keep your eyes on Me.”
“No weapon that is fashioned against you shall succeed, and you shall confute every tongue that rises against you in judgment. This is the heritage of the servants of Yahweh and their vindication from Me,” declares Yahweh.” Isaiah 54:17
“But Yahweh is faithful. He will establish you and guard you against the evil one.” 2 Thessalonians 3:3
Peace I Leave with You Do you have moments where you feel there is no peace in your life? In the world? Maybe you feel like you have never had peace due to an unhealthy inner dialogue. It’s time to let Yahweh sift your Heart and take inventory of what’s going on in there. Cry out and ask Him to sift your Heart and bring you back to His ways, His thoughts, and His Beautiful gift of PEACE given to us through His Son, Yahushua.
23 God, I invite your searching gaze into my heart. Examine me through and through; find out everything that may be hidden within me. Put me to the test and sift through all my anxious cares. 24 See if there is any path of pain I’m walking on, and lead me back to your glorious, everlasting way— the path that brings me back to you.
In your time of reflection after praying Psalm 139:23-24 above, ask yourself “Are my thoughts in alignment with the Spirit of Truth?” Or are they filled with the worries and anxieties of this world? Yahushua came to give you PEACE, a true indescribable PEACE. You may be thinking, “I have Yahushua, why don’t I have the PEACE He speaks of in John 14:27?”.
John 14:27 “I leave the gift of peace with you—my peace. Not the kind of fragile peace given by the world, but my perfect peace. Don’t yield to fear or be troubled in your hearts—instead, be courageous.”
Lack of PEACE is a symptom of the soul needing to come into alignment with the Spirit of TRUTH. This is a partnership between you and our Heavenly Father. He has deposited His Spirit within you. The Voice of Truth speaks within you. It is critical that you align your thoughts, actions and internal dialogue with the Spirit of TRUTH.
Philippians 4:8-9 “Keep your thoughts continually fixed on all that is authentic and real, honorable and admirable, beautiful and respectful, pure and holy, merciful and kind. And fasten your thoughts on every glorious work of God, praising him always. Put into practice the example of all that you have heard from me or seen in my life and the God of peace will be with you in all things.”
As unhealthy thoughts come, reject them and replace them with the guidance provided in Philippians 4:8-9. This is another place where your partnership with Him is critical. Yahweh has given you what you need, now you need to apply what He has given you (aka obedience).
We live in a time of perpetual procrastination. The thoughts often creep in about taking care of something tomorrow. Or, once _____________ (you fill in the blank) happens then I will get to it. It is a stall tactic from your adversary. If he can delay you one hour, day, or weekend at a time before you know it an entire year will go by again and you will not be any further to reach the God-given dreams in your heart.
Have you ever stopped and thought where did that week, month, or year go? Have you put your life on hold waiting for ______________? Yes, there is a time we are to WAIT ON YAHWEH; however, idle hands are the devil’s workshop (Proverbs 16:27 “Idle hands are the devil’s workshop; idle lips are his mouthpiece.”). The devil will always find something for you to do especially because it takes you away from what Yahweh has asked you to do.
Stop and take inventory of any idleness in your life. Was it pleasing to Yahweh? Are there changes you can make to stop procrastination and idle hands? Yahweh sent His Son, Yahushua, for you! If you are struggling with not having the discipline to follow through, then cry out to Yahushua. If you are struggling with a lazy spirit, then cry out to Yahushua. If you are struggling with analysis paralysis, then cry out to Yahushua! He can deliver you of all the traps of the devil.
Life is a gift to be cherished every day and never taken for granted. Learn to number your days so idleness does not fall upon you like a thief.
“Help us to remember that our days are numbered, and help us to interpret our lives correctly. Set Your wisdom deeply in our hearts so that we may accept Your correction.”
Part of your Spiritual Training is learning how to continue to run the Race especially when it is not easy. As you are growing Spiritually, you will discover how Yahweh presents opportunities for you to persevere. You may not understand when you are going through a situation that He allowed it to present an opportunity for you to remain steadfast. However, maybe you did not remain steadfast but fell apart, lost your temper, or even lost hope. You then found yourself in another situation very similar but a bit different to what you previously had faced. Why? Well, it is not because your life is in an endless loop of challenges and hopelessness instead there is something Yahushua is teaching you. When you feel a cycle is in play, pause and PRAY! Step back and ask the Maker of Heaven and earth what He is trying to teach you. It could be something as simple as patience, steadfastness, or even refining of your character.
Regardless of what challenges you may face, continue to run the GOOD RACE. Do not grow weary of doing GOOD. Continue running the Race because He is a Rewarder of Righteousness and no harvest in this physical world could ever compare to the Reward received from our Heavenly Father.
Galatians 6:9-11“And don’t allow yourselves to be weary in planting good seeds, for the season of reaping the wonderful harvest you’ve planted is coming! 10 Take advantage of every opportunity to be a blessing to others, especially to our brothers and sisters in the family of faith!”
Have you been getting a prompting in your Spirit that you know there “is” more to your current life? You know that things are shifting in a way to reveal the evil that has been hidden for far too long. However, in spite of all of the evil, you have a strong knowing from the Spirit of Yahweh that the Victory IS His! You know that you are here (at this exact time) for a reason. You are right!
Father Yahweh has been preparing His children for this exact time in history. Some have been in preparation for years; others, have had a drastic “about-face” change in their lives over the last one to two years that only Yahushua could do.
This year in 2022 is a year of the cornerstone being put into place. A year where Yahweh’s Hand will be shown and known. A year where people will have to make a choice as to which side of the fence they stand on. It is not the time for lukewarm believers but one of the hearts being selected just as when Yahweh chose Gideon’s Army. Gideon started with 32,000 men and ended up with only 300 to face an army of approximately 135,000.
It feels like a mighty separation is happening because it is!
Yahweh has a plan! He is sifting the hearts with the Refiner’s Fire. He knows which hearts will stand against the evil of this world and not compromise themselves. Many are surprised by what is happening in the world, but it was warned in scripture.
2 Timothy 3:“But you need to be aware that in the final days the culture of society will become extremely fierce. 2 People will be self-centered lovers of themselves and obsessed with money. They will boast of great things as they strut around in their arrogant pride and mock all that is right. They will ignore their own families. They will be ungrateful and ungodly.
3 They will become addicted to hateful and malicious slander. Slaves to their desires, they will be ferocious, belligerent haters of what is good and right. 4 With brutal treachery, they will act without restraint, bigoted and wrapped in clouds of their conceit. They will find their delight in the pleasures of this world more than the pleasures of the loving God.
5 They may pretend to have a respect for God, but in reality they want nothing to do with God’s power. Stay away from people like these! 6 For they are the ones who worm their way into the hearts of vulnerable women, spending the night with those who are captured by their lusts and steeped in sin. 7 They are always learning but never discover the revelation-knowledge of truth.
8 History has given us an example of this with the Egyptian sorcerers Jannes and Jambres,[f] who stood against Moses in their arrogance. So it will be in the last days with those who reject the faith with their corrupt minds and arrogant hearts, standing against the truth of God.
9 But they will not advance, for everyone will see their madness, just as they did with Jannes and Jambres!”
Much will be built this year by Yahweh’s Hand from this very critical cornerstone. He is refining His children, training them to hear His Voice at a moment’s notice. We can discuss this very important ROCK more next week as we dive into understanding these last days.
