My Plans for You!
November 24, 2018
[Yahweh has a plan for all of us, nothing we do surprises Him, but He often surprises us. Let us look at what is in store for us. As we look at the future we can compare our situation to a time in the past when we failed in our own power, but Yahweh either has given or will give us a second chance to succeed in another time and maybe another place. But He does give second chances and so should we.]
(Gen 18:17-19) And Yahweh said, Shall I hide from Abraham that thing which I do; 18:18 Seeing that Abraham shall surely become a great and mighty nation, and all the nations of the earth shall be blessed in him? 18:19 For I know him, that he will command his children and his household after him, and they shall keep the way of Yahweh, to do justice and judgment; that Yahweh may bring upon Abraham that which He hath spoken of him.
[Can any deny that the children of Abraham have been a blessing to the world? They are certainly known in all the world.]
(Isa 66:21-23) And I will also take of them for priests and for Levites, saith Yahweh. 66:22 For as the new heavens and the new earth, which I will make, shall remain before Me, saith Yahweh, so shall your seed and your name remain. 66:23 And it shall come to pass, that from one new moon to another, and from one sabbath to another, shall all flesh come to worship before Me, saith Yahweh.
[We have the promise of a new heaven and a new earth after Yahshua has finished ridding the world of evil. Life will go on and the Sabbath and New Moon worship that we now have will be so much more in the presence of Yahweh and Yahshua.]
(Isa 50:4-10) The Most High Yahweh hath given me the tongue of the learned, that I should know how to speak a word in season to him that is weary: He wakeneth morning by morning, He wakeneth mine ear to hear as the learned. 50:5 The Most High Yahweh hath opened mine ear, and I was not rebellious, neither turned away back. 50:6 I gave My back to the smiters, and My cheeks to them that plucked off the hair: I hid not My face from shame and spitting. 50:7 For the Most High Yahweh will help Me; therefore shall I not be confounded: therefore have I set My face like a flint, and I know that I shall not be ashamed. 50:8 He is near that justifieth me; who will contend with Me? let us stand together: who is mine adversary? let him come near to Me. 50:9 Behold, the Most High Yahweh will help Me; who is he that shall condemn me? lo, they all shall wax old as a garment; the moth shall eat them up. 50:10 Who is among you that feareth the Most High Yahweh, that obeyeth the voice of His servant, that walketh in darkness, and hath no light? let him trust in the name of The Most High Yahweh, and stay upon his Almighty.
[We know this is a prophecy of Yahshua and His death, but Yahweh gave us a heart that can be as loyal as Yahshua's. You do not have to go to school to learn how to comfort someone. Just watch a child comfort a play mate or an pet comfort one who is sick physically or spiritually. When one of us is in trouble we should all be concerned enough to help in what ever way we can for together we grow stronger in our faith as we see and hear of Yahweh's work in each of our lives.]
(Jer 29:22-23) And of them shall be taken up a curse by all the captivity of Judah which are in Babylon, saying, Yahweh make thee like Zedekiah and like Ahab, whom the king of Babylon roasted in the fire; 29:23 Because they have committed villainy in Israel, and have committed adultery with their neighbours' wives, and have spoken lying words in My name, which I have not commanded them; even I know, and am a witness, saith Yahweh.
[Nothing has changed with Yahweh! He still knows and is a witness whether we do good or evil and yes He has it recorded in our record book. Those other books that are opened in the book of Revelation.]
(Psa 40:2-5) He brought me up also out of an horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock, and established my goings. 40:3 And He hath put a new song in my mouth, even praise unto our Almighty: many shall see it, and fear, and shall trust in Yahweh. 40:4 Blessed is that man that maketh Yahweh his trust, and respecteth not the proud, nor such as turn aside to lies. 40:5 Many, O Yahweh my Almighty, are thy wonderful works which thou hast done, and thy thoughts which are to us-ward: they cannot be reckoned up in order unto thee: if I would declare and speak of them, they are more than can be numbered.
[It is true! Yahweh's thoughts toward us are for our good for He loves us in ways too wonderful for us to comprehend in this life. We all fall or walk into trouble at times in our lives. Some of those are of our own making and some are not. In the end only Yahweh can make straight a crooked broken path.]
(Isa 55:1-3) Ho, every one that thirsteth, come ye to the waters, and he that hath no money; come ye, buy, and eat; yea, come, buy wine and milk without money and without price. 55:2 Wherefore do ye spend money for that which is not bread? and your labour for that which satisfieth not? hearken diligently unto Me, and eat ye that which is good, and let your soul delight itself in fatness.
[This verse has always stuck in my mind and comes to me when I am shopping. We all spend money that neither extends our life or the life of anybody else. I am in the process of cleaning out my property of all the things that have been accumulated over the years. Much of it has been ruined by rodents or weather, some has just rotted. How much better if I had given it away when it was still useful. Not only that but styles change and what I have is no longer ‘in style’ even if it is still usable! ]
(Isa 55:3-5) Incline your ear, and come unto Me: hear, and your soul shall live; and I will make an everlasting covenant with you, even the sure mercies of David. 55:4 Behold, I have given Him for a witness to the people, a leader and commander to the people. 55:5 Behold, thou shalt call a nation that thou knowest not, and nations that knew not thee shall run unto thee because of Yahweh your Almighty, and for the Set-apart One of Israel; for He hath glorified thee.
[Jerusalem and all it stands for is still the focus of the world, therefore it is honored and desired by many nations and religions.]
(Isa 55:6-7) Seek ye Yahweh while He may be found, call ye upon Him while He is near: 55:7 Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto Yahweh, and He will have mercy upon him; and to our Almighty, for He will abundantly pardon.
[Even the wicked came from Yahweh, but they rebelled. Yahweh has opened the way through Yahshua for all sins to be forgiven with true repentance, except blaspheme.]
(Isa 55:8-11) For My thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways My ways, saith Yahweh. 55:9 For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways, and My thoughts than your thoughts. 55:10 For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: 55:11 So shall My word be that goeth forth out of My mouth: it shall not return unto Me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it. 55:12 For ye shall go out with joy, and be led forth with peace: the mountains and the hills shall break forth before you into singing, and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands. 55:13 Instead of the thorn shall come up the fir tree, and instead of the brier shall come up the myrtle tree: and it shall be to Yahweh for a name, for an everlasting sign that shall not be cut off.
[There are so many things spoken of here but today we are looking for hope backed by scripture. Yahweh is higher than high above us in every way – yet He still loves us. He gives us the promise of a life of joy and peace, even the earth and its flora and fauna give evidence of their appreciation of Yahweh and His great love for all of His creation. Can we do any less?]
(Joh 14:1-4) Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in Yahweh, believe also in Me. 14:2 In My Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. 14:3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto Myself; that where I am, there ye may be also. 14:4 And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know.
[Yahshua died for our sins and He has promised to come to our rescue again when He returns to claim His own. He also reminds us that He has shown us the way to His and His Father’s home.]
(Joh 14:11-14) Believe Me that I am in the Father, and the Father in Me: or else believe Me for the very works' sake.14:12 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on Me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto My Father. 14:13 And whatsoever ye shall ask in My name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified [magnified] in the Son. 14:14 If ye shall ask any thing in My name, I will do it.
[We believe but apparently not enough to get the results Yahshua got or His disciples obtained. Is it lack of faith, not in the promise-er but in ourselves?]
(Joh 14:15-18) If ye love Me, keep My commandments. 14:16 And I will pray the Father, and He shall give you another Comforter, that He may abide with you for ever; 14:17 Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth Him not, neither knoweth Him: but ye know Him; for He dwelleth with you, and shall be in you. 14:18 I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.
[Have each of us received the promised spirit? If you are not sure just ask Yahweh in Yahshua's name to receive the spirit as you walk in obedience to the commandments.]
(Joh 14:19-21) Yet a little while, and the world seeth Me no more; but ye see Me: because I live, ye shall live also. 14:20 At that day ye shall know that I am in My Father, and ye in Me, and I in you. 14:21 He that hath My commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth Me: and he that loveth Me shall be loved of My Father, and I will love him, and will manifest Myself to him.
[If we walk in His righteousness He lives in us and our Father also resides in our hearts and influences our choices. From experience I can testify the longer I walk with them as my guide and protection the closer they are.]
(Joh 14:27-28) Peace I leave with you, My peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. 4:28 Ye have heard how I said unto you, I go away, and come again unto you. If ye loved Me, ye would rejoice, because I said, I go unto the Father: for My Father is greater than I.
[There is peace when we walk in agreement with Yahweh and Yahshua, a peace of the heart and mind, not necessarily a calm exterior – but rather a calm heart because we trust Yahweh will hear and provide whatsoever is needed. Part of the problem is we do not fully trust the promises and if that is true do we trust the promise-er? Do not be afraid of failing Him – that only happens when we do not follow Him and do as He asks. He has plans for all of us else we would not exist - so trust and obey and He will walk every step with you as He said.]
