Job and a Sovereign God

8 09 2017

bible_jobThis week’s post begins a three-part series on the final chapter of Job 42.

The book of Job is comprised of 42 chapters recounting the story of the suffering of Job, a righteous man. Just as the final chapter of Job has three parts, Job is joined by three friends and three cycles of debate ensue before God himself enters the picture in chapter 40 as he begins revealing the real issue is not the suffering of a righteous man but the sovereignty of a mighty God. This revelation is where chapter 42 begins.

Job 42 is comprised of three parts. Part 1 is Job’s response to God, part 2 is God’s speaking to Job’s friends and part 3 is Job’s restoration.

We want to look at the two preceding chapters of Job in this first post because God has been talking to Job and helps him understand God is sovereign.

Sovereign by definition is: to have or possess supreme or ultimate power and authority. God has supreme/ultimate power and authority. This is something mankind has wrestled with since our creation. We grumble trying to find reasons for everything. As I look at Texas, some will look and judge its citizens. I cannot, rather I look at a sovereign God who allowed the winds to churn up and the rains to pour down upon the lone star state. I look upon the same sovereign God who limited the hand of Satan in Job’s life, and who is still controlling where the winds blow and rain fall.

Join me in praying for our nation and the natural disasters our nation is currently facing, from wild fires in the West to hurricanes and flooding in the East, then join me next week as we look at Job 42!

Blessings & Complete Joy!

Millie

Letting God Behind the Curtain a Necessary Preparation

5 02 2016

2016 calendarWe began this series with a prophetic word for 2016 God intends to work in and through each of us! We learned last time that as we do the hard thing, to wait, God shines through us.  Today we look at the necessary preparation of Letting God Behind the Curtain.

 

Nevertheless, God’s solid foundation stands firm, sealed with this inscription: “The Lord knows those who are his,” and, “Everyone who confesses the name of the Lord must turn away from wickedness.”

Those who cleanse themselves from the latter will be instruments for special purposes, made holy, useful to the Master and prepared to do any good work.

2Ti 2:19 & 21

 

If you have been with the Lord for any period of time you might think, I have turned away from wickedness. I have accepted the Lord, I follow God’s commandments and years ago I broke strongholds and soul ties the enemy had in my life.

 

God would say, “good for you, but do you want my plan and purpose for your life? Do you want my will?” To be an instrument for His special purpose made holy for this season you and I must allow God to go to behind the curtain to the deep dark reaches of our souls and root out everything.

 

Personally I can become overwhelmed by God’s plans and purposes for my life and want to hide. When I become behind the curtainoverwhelmed I look not to the Lord with confidence but to the tangible, the known, my childhood and say who am I that He would choose to use me because my own parents didn’t.  As much as I have worked and wrestled I lack the ability to look to the Lord in critical situations with confidence so I must allow God to root out the last of this childhood pain and allow a deep trust and confidence in God’s choosing me to take up residence in that deep dark hiding place.

 

Don’t be afraid to let God go behind the curtain of where you are hiding, which keeps you from becoming who God created you to be!

 

Blessings and Complete Joy,

Millie

Prepare to Shine Brightly!

1 01 2016

2016 calendarAs we begin 2016 it has been a tradition for the Lord to give me a prophetic word for his people at the beginning of the year. I believe keeping Phil 1:6 is a key scripture as we enter this year.

 

“… being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.”

Php 1:6

 

I have been struggling with all the changes in my life. From changing churches to embracing my Jewishness. I said good-bye to my messianic body of believers as 2015 came to a close and as I did I have been forced to embrace who I am. I have made the decision to honor God by holding Sabbat each week. I had been struggling with how to begin because I couldn’t find a candle holder, so I decided to make one.shabbat candle holder

 

I prayed and I looked at the craft store I purchased this simple wood plaque and wood candle cups and brought them home. I took a picture to send to a friend of my project I began seeing the profound prophetic word for 2016 which God was releasing.

 

I sense we who believe in Yeshua (Jesus) are being set apart for something big.

 

Like this wood, we are yet unfinished for in the former season God shaped us and molded us but the work we were created for was never finished completely and like the candle cups which are as yet unsecured for the screws which I purchased to secure them were far too short so is the depth of our relationship with our God.

 

Our job is to be willing to accept the depth of relationship with Yeshua that is required for our light to shine brightly before men in this season and to rest in the truth that He who began a good work in us will bring it to completion!

 

Walk with expectation in 2016 for the Lord to shine brightly through you!

 

Join me next time as we look at the mystery and focus for 2016





The Relationship that Sustain in a Shifting Atmosphere!

1 05 2015

11087581_sIn our last post we opened a series on our ever shifting atmosphere and the need for maturity. These words are key, for they reveal the difference between walking in maturity and walking in our own strength.

If I speak in the tongues of men or of angels, but do not have love,

I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal.

If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing.

If I give all I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast,

but do not have love, I gain nothing.

1Co 13:1 – 3

Before there is obedience, before their is maturity leading naturally into authority, there must be an encounter with God our Father. It is through this relationship that we were created to grow and mature. Moses did not have a vibrant mature relationship with God in Egypt because the bible tells us  in Exodus chapter  3, as Moses tended this father-in-law’s flocks he encountered God.

Moses struggled with those who oppressed his people and still today we struggle with the oppression we face in our daily lives. It is through our relationship with God which brings us to a place of speaking in love, acting in love and giving in love which birthing life in others rather than release the pain in our hearts which can build up when someone does something we don’t agree with.

We would do well to reflect upon the life of Moses; for as he grew in his relationship with God, he learned to follow God and as he followed God, he saw God set his people free!

Blessings and Complete Joy,

Millie
