Yitro Set up ORDER‼
Exodus 18:17-21 Yitro, the father-in-law of Moshe said to him, “What you are doing is not good. You WILL wear yourself out. Now listen to my voice. Let me counsel you…: And you shall enlighten them REGARDING MY TORAH, and show them the way in which they should walk… (1) Seek out able men, (2) who Fear Elohim, (3) men of truth, (4) hating unfair gain. They will be rulers of thousands, rulers of hundreds, rulers of fifties, and rulers of tens”.
Order brings SHALOM…
Walk with ORDER & OBEDIENCE OF MESSIAH
David; A picture of the apple of God’s eye/man after God’s own heart…but he committed adultery and murder, he failed in his area of strength!
John 18:25-27 And Shimʽon Kĕpha was standing and warming himself. Then they said to him, “Are you also one of His taught ones?” He denied it and said, “I am not!” One of the servants of the high priest, a relative of the one whose ear Kĕpha cut off, said, “Did I not see you in the garden with Him?” Then Kĕpha again denied it, and immediately a cock crowed.
Some of God’s people have low self esteem and think God sees them as a composite of all their failures…but not so!
MY Abba and/or my earthly father does not introduce me as my Son that failed at this or that.
WHEN WE FAIL OR FALL, “GET UP”
My Father has no such memories… He Forgives & Forgets [as far as east from west!] (Not to say there’s no consequences)
Psalm 103:11-12 His mercy toward those who fear him is as far above earth as heaven. He has removed our sins from us as far as the east is from the west.
If we fail God, it will often be in an area of our greatest strength.
Peter’s greatest strength was his courage!
We criticize Peter for taking his eyes off Messiah on the sea of Galilee & began to sink…but at least he got out of the boat!
When they came to arrest Yeshua, Peter pulled out his sword to defend him/tried to take off one of their heads!
This big, burly fisherman, cowered down before a teenage girl…in the area of his greatest strength! But…
When we fail, God is sympathetic (Luke 22:61) The moment Peter denied, he turned and saw the Lord, and their eyes met; It wasn’t a look of disappointment but a look of love!
Moses was the meekest among men [meekness: strength under control], but He lost control of his emotions and killed an Egyptian/later smote rock twice!
Abraham called the father of faith…but he left Canaan and went into Egypt, & lied about Sarah his wife, because his faith was weak, would Yah protect him…he failed in his area of strength.
None of these failed in their weakness, but in their strength…because we all have a tendency to leave our strengths unguarded!
An Unguarded strength is a Double Weakness!
Paul said (II Cor. 12:10), when I am weak, then am I strong! [for then I’m depending on the Lord, and not myself!]
Proverbs 16:18 pride goes before a failure or a fall!!
I Corinthians 10:12 Therefore, let anyone who thinks he is standing up be careful not to fall!
Yah doesn't love us because we are Awesome/Valuable;
We are Awesome and Valuable because He loves us!
He wants to redeem and cleanse you! Yeshua knows;
Your Failures and Your Future!
You are His Anointed ones.
You are His LIFE GIVING SPIRIT.
You are His LIGHT TO A DARK WORLD.
Your are His RIVER OF LIFE.
Maybe you’ve failed or fallen…who hasn’t?
Get back up… don’t just fail to Arise! Even when we fail, we are Secure in Him and Yahweh makes us even Stronger and more prepared to wage war.
Stop complaining, ALLOWING DARK AND NEGATIVE THOUGHTS TO RAVISH YOUR MIND;
Romans 1:21 When they knew God, (BELIEVERS, CHRISTIANS), BUT they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, (VAIN IMAGINATIONS) & their foolish heart was darkened.
Stop EVIL TONGUE IN YOUR LIFE, LA SHON HARA.
Stop BEING THE ACCUSER OF THE BRETHREN!
Revelation 12:10 And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come deliverance, salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our Elohim, and the power of His Reign, the KINGDOM OF MESSIAH: for the accuser of our brethren has been cast down, which accused them before our God day and night.
Matthew 18:19-20 Again I say to you that if 2 of you agree on earth concerning any matter that they ask, it shall be done for them by my ABBA, in the heavens. For where 2 or 3 are gathered together in My Name, there I am in their midst.
Theodore Roosevelt said, "The only man who never makes a mistake is the man who never does anything.“
Deuteronomy 7:21 You are not to be frightened of them, because YAHWEH your Elohim is there with you, great and fearsome.
Remember Who You Are! Your Identity is in HIM.
1 Chronicles 16:13, Colossians 3:12…You are God's Chosen Ones.
1 Peter 2:10 Once you were not a people, but now you are God's people; before, you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy.
Galatians 4:7 So you aren't slaves (to sin and Death) any longer.
You are God's children. Because you are HIS children, HE gives you what HE promised to give HIS people.
Exodus 19:5 ‘And now, “IF” you diligently obey My voice, & shall guard My Covenant, “THEN” you shall be My treasured possession*H5459, סגלּה SEGULLAH, above all the peoples – for all the earth is Mine!!
Isaiah 61:1-2 The Spirit of the Master, יהוה is upon “ME”, because יהוה has Anointed “ME” to bring good news to the meek. He has sent “ME” to bind up the broken-hearted, He has sent “ME” to proclaim release to the captives, and He has sent “ME” to open the prison to those who are bound, & to proclaim the acceptable year of יהוה…
Isaiah 60:1 “Arise, shine, for your light has come! And the esteem of יהוה has risen upon you.
Where you are God is There!!
