Stop Working and Plotting
Look to Yah'shua Instead for Deliverance
The first and most important revelation that the one searching for God must learn is that every unsaved human being is spiritually bankrupt. Perhaps, in this time of economic bankruptcies, then, this important lesson can be learned by comparison. One who is searching for Life and Salvation can only ever find it when he has obtained this revelation - if he thinks that his spiritual bank account is fairly ok, or low, or on the edge, then he has not understood a fundamental truth about the condition of man, that on his own man is BANKRUPT. He hasn't got a thing to secure his spiritual salvation within himself.
The person who has not understood this is usually busy working and plotting his own deliverance from the deep-seated need that he feels. He is trying to figure everything out. Will Yahweh fix my economic needs? My family crisis? My bad health? Will I grow to be the person He wants me to be or am I constantly doomed to keep falling flat on my face and seemingly going nowhere or even backwards? Will I ever be free of this or that particular sin? Will I ever feel the nearness of Yahweh or will my trusting just be in a matrix of swirling thoughts and contrary passions? Will He see me through?
If you have genuinely chosen Yahweh through Yah'shua (Jesus) His Son then understand this: He will see you through. And why? Because He has invested everything in you! He has invested His life in you!
"He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things?" (Rom.8:32, NKJV).
