You have been weighed on the scales and found deficient. Daniel 5:27.
Today your LORD (יהוה) God (אלהים) says:
Another tactic of the devil is to make you feel deficient and this is what many call mid-life crisis. He begins writing on the wall of your inner vision of how you perceive yourself that your life has been weighed on the scales and found wanting, deficient, and worthless. That you have never really done anything that will have an impact on humanity and that you certainly have not been a blessing to all the families of the earth. You feel that your life disappointed Me because you never really did what I wanted you to do. You are not quite sure what that is, or you would do it but somehow it seems to have eluded you. And you shed tears of remorse before Me.
But that is a lie. It is true about the devil but not about you who have taken My Son as your Lord. But you may be thinking that you really have not done anything that has made an impact for Me. But let Me ask you a question. What did Abraham do? And yet believers in My Son, the Hebrew people, and the dozens of middle eastern people call Abraham their father.
From when I first called Abraham to follow Me I told him that I would make him a great nation, that I would bless him and make his name great, and that all the nations of the earth would be blessed by him.
I will greatly bless you, and I will greatly multiply your seed as the stars of the heavens and as the sand which is on the seashore; and your seed shall possess the gate of His enemies. In your seed all the nations of the earth shall be blessed, because you have obeyed My voice. Genesis 22:17-18.
He obeyed My voice. From when I first called him to the end of his life on earth, when I called he listened and was ready to do whatever I told him. And he taught his children and his household the same.
The LORD said, “Shall I hide from Abraham what I am about to do, since Abraham will surely become a great and mighty nation, and in him all the nations of the earth will be blessed? For I have chosen him, so that he may command his children and his household after him to keep the way of the LORD by doing righteousness and justice, so that the LORD may bring upon Abraham what He has spoken about him.” Genesis 18:17-19.
And I told his son Isaac, “I will multiply your descendants as the stars of heaven, and will give your descendants all these lands; and by your descendants all the nations of the earth shall be blessed; because Abraham obeyed Me and kept My charge, My commandments, My statutes and My laws.” Genesis 26:4-5.
If you are willing and obey you shall have the best of the land. And in the New Covenant what have I commanded you? “This is His commandment, that we believe in the Name of His Son Jesus Christ, and love one another, just as He commanded us. The one who keeps His commandments abides in Him, and He in him. We know by this that He abides in us, by the Spirit whom He has given us.” 1 John 3:23-24.
You may not think your life is significant, but how do you think it becomes significant? Faith. It is impossible to please Me without it. Abraham is your father in the faith. I tell you that all the Hebrew people of Covenant are children of Abraham. When Jesus healed the bent over woman in the synagogue why did He say she deserved to be set free and healed? Because she was a daughter of Abraham. And I told Isaac I blessed him because he was a son of Abraham. And then Jacob went to any lengths he could to receive not only the first born blessing but the Blessing of Abraham, and Isaac gave it to him. And Jesus became a curse for you so that the Blessing of Abraham might come upon the gentiles. Galatians 3: 13-14. And all who believe in Jesus are considered by Me as descendants of Abraham.
And if you belong to Christ, then you are Abraham’s descendants, heirs according to promise. Galatians 3:29.
What promise? Abraham believed Me, and it was credited to him as righteousness. Faith. Now to the one who works, his wage is not credited as a favor, but as what is due. But to the one who does not work, but believes in Him who justifies the ungodly, his faith is credited as righteousness, Righteousness by faith. And this makes you heirs of the world.
For the promise to Abraham or to his descendants that he would be heir of the world was not through the Law, but through the righteousness of faith. Romans 4:13.
Jesus was always looking at people’s faith. He was looking for faith to connect to My power so that miracles of healing, provision, and protection could take place. He noted if people had little faith, no faith, lost faith, or great faith. When they could not cast the demon out of the boy who foamed at the mouth and rolled around He told His disciples and the crowd they were an unbelieving perverse lot that He found it tedious to be around. And the lack of faith of the people of Nazareth amazed Him and He could work no miracles there of any great significance. Jesus was very patient, but a lack a faith in those who should have known My Word grieved and frustrated Him greatly.
And do you see I am the same? Without faith it is impossible to please Me. The righteous shall live by faith and if he draws back I have no pleasure in him. Why? I cannot perform My many magnificent promises in, for, and through the one who has no faith. No faith blocks and hinders the flow of grace (My divine life) into your soul.
I blessed Abraham so that by his faith he would be a blessing to everyone on earth. And I even share who I am with him. Jesus told you that you only have one Father and that is Me. But I gave Abraham the name of “father of many nations.” And I call him the father of all who have faith. Do you see how great an impact his faith made upon Me? I chose him and his line to bring forth the Messiah into the world according to the flesh. In Heaven you are all one family, My family, and that is the family of Abraham. The household of faith.
Faith distinguishes you from everyone else. Faith makes your life significant.
My grace is there for you making all My promises available to you but you must take them by faith. My power to heal was present and pervaded the house that day that Jesus was teaching in his home at Capernaum, but I only tell you of one person healed. And he was not out doing great and awesome projects, he was crippled and his friends had to carry him there and put him down through the roof to get him in front of Jesus. And Jesus SEEING THEIR FAITH forgave and healed the man. All it took was faith and that was all Jesus was looking for.
And here you are finding how to have a life that is not deficient and is very worthwhile. By having faith in Me, and I am My Word. Firm, honor giving, mountain moving faith that comes by love in the One who made the promise. Faith works by love.
When Jairus little daughter died, Jesus did not look at all the “good” works Jairus had done or had not done to determine if the daughter would be healed and blessed. No. Only one thing was required, “Do not fear, ONLY believe.” And Jairus stayed in faith and the miracle resulted.
When the Israelites asked Jesus how they could do the works of God, He told them that the work of God was to have faith in the One He sent. Jesus. Faith is all the work I require of you because once you have faith, faith speaks and faith acts. Faith without works is dead, but it is a particular kind of works. The blessing and miracle kind. My grace provides it and your faith takes it.
And faith is not just something automatic. It, like muscles, must be exercised to enlarge, and faith, like anything must be fed to survive and thrive.
Faith comes by hearing and hearing. Whatever you listen to the most is where your faith will be. Faith food is My Word and nothing else. My Words are Spirit and life. And you exercise your faith by speaking. Speak to things that are not of Me, such as illness, storms, pain, financial lack—answer them with the truth of My Word that pertains to the problem or symptom and then cast out the sickness, pain, lack, storm is, the unclean spirits with simple command in Jesus’ Name.
Therefore as you have received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in Him, having been firmly rooted and now being built up in Him and established in your faith, just as you were instructed, and overflowing with gratitude. Colossians 2:6-7.
Put your roots in Christ, pull up what you need. In Him you are complete.
And even you only gave a cup of cold water to one of My prophets, you receive a prophet’s reward.
Do not look at yourself so harshly. I see you in the Light of My Love. See everything as I do in the light of My love. You are not doing this alone. You are not living this life or the next one on your own. I am with you.
I told Jacob one night in a dream, “Behold, I am with you and will keep you wherever you go, and will bring you back to this land; for I will not leave you until I have done what I have promised you.” Genesis 28:15.
And what have I promised you? Eternal life. Paul, a bond-servant of God and an apostle of Jesus Christ, for the faith of those chosen of God and the knowledge of the truth which is according to godliness in the hope of eternal life, which God, who cannot lie, promised long ages ago. Titus 1:1-2.
And what I promise I will perform. I will complete the good work I begun in you and bring you spirit, soul, and body, complete and whole before Me.
Put your hand in Mine, put your trust in Me, learn My Words and take them as your own thoughts and words, never turn back, never quit (I have you fully equipped), and walk with Me each moment of every day and rest in Me each night. And soon you will find you are no longer walking but soaring on eagle’s wings with Me. Your heart will take flight with Me on the wings of the wind.
I love you. Full of faith and the Holy Spirit your life will not be found wanting. The answer is always to have faith in Me and all will work together for good for you, no matter what is happening in the dark world around you. On you of the household of faith, the glory is shining and I am setting a table of plenty. Like Abraham. He welcomes each person into Heaven as his family. And, of course, so do I. Faith makes you great in My eyes.
Jesus answered and said to him, “If anyone loves Me, he will keep My Word; and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our abode with him. John 14:23.
And with Me dwelling with you, your life will never be deficient. Keep My Word and all will be washed clean for you and made productive. That was how I told Joshua to conquer the Promised Land. And he did. Joshua 1:8.
