The Gifts of Yahweh
“I will praise you; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvelous are your works; and that my soul knows right well,” Psalms 139:14.
If you are feeling lost in a sea of complicated problems, downcast, rejected, defeated, and at odds with the world, consider this: you have neglected to accept the beautiful gifts that Yahweh has given to you. Maybe you have been unaware of these gifts, or maybe you have not believed they were yours, no matter; I will assist you if you will take a few moments to read about your human potential.
Peace is a free gift to all of Yahweh’s creation, yet few accept it. You were not born to become a reject—a failure. You were subjected to this wonderful world of opportunity in hope, in Yahweh’s hope (Romans 8:20). Isn’t it awesome, the Creator of the universe hoped in you? If this is true, and it is, you must be very special, you must have a glorious potential toward greatness in him.
Take a moment and look at your individuality and consider what an awesome creature you are, and then examine the meticulous effort he exerted to equip you with what you need to excel. At this time you may not esteem yourself to be unique because you do not recognize what a magnificent creature you are. You see your reflection in the mirror, but you cannot see your reality. You are a gift to the world, a diamond in the rough. You have the potential to excel; you are the answer to your own complications.
The Bible says we eat from our own garden, and again, we reap what we have sown. This all boils down to what we call cultivating our own frame of mind. We act and react to the people and conditions around us, out of the conditioning and programming of our own minds; the sad part is every action commands a reaction.
Recently I came across two great truths that have really fed my spirit. I have learned that I possess one of the greatest inventions in the whole universe, one that scientist cannot duplicate. I have the franchise on my mind; no one else can use it. But no one needs to, each of us have our own fantastic brain. I also learned that I could use my mind to create. I have learned there is no condemnation for doing that. I use it all the time to create whether I am aware of my actions or not.
People are so strange, so many scientist reject the Savior, yet they are now teaching as a newly discovered theory, the message the Savior taught almost two thousand years ago, that is, that we are busy creating our environment throughout our lifetime either by our subconscious base desires, which are usually ill directed, or through a conscious and constructive effort.
I am at awe that the wise men of modern times are scientifically confirming the Bible based law of sowing and reaping; it is now established as an undeniable fact. Isn’t it wonderful that this principle can now be recognized as the sovereign authority, and confirms the first recorded statement ever made concerning the destiny of man, which is, “And Yahweh said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion….” Genesis 1:26? This is why I say it is so great that they have finally discovered the law of sowing and reaping, “Be not deceived; Yahweh is not mocked: for whatsoever a man sows, that shall he also reap.…” And again, “Yasha said unto him, If you can believe, all things are possible to him that believes,” Mark 9:23.
Also, remember the scripture in Matthew 17:20, “And Yasha said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, you shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.”
Another scripture in Matthew 21:21-22 also reaffirms this, “Yasha answered and said unto them, Verily I say unto you, If you have faith, and doubt not, you shall not only do this which is done to the fig tree, but also if you shall say unto this mountain, Be you removed, and be you cast into the sea; it shall be done. And all things, whatsoever you shall ask in prayer, believing, you shall receive.”
I suppose the reason this concept is so difficult to work with is most folks are unaware of their thought-pattern, that is, they allow their thoughts to wonder uncontrolled, and that’s why Peter advised us to gird up the loins of our minds:
“Wherefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and hope to the end for the grace that is to be brought unto you at the revelation (revealing) of Yasha Christ,” 1 Peter 1:13.
Our problems will be intensified by demonic spirits and powers, but the other and most frustrating problem about this reality is that we are in a world full of creators and too many of them are the “up and at at’em” species that like to take charge. The trouble is they will rule for us if we will allow them to take dominion over our space. Many of them will put up a strong warfare to take or keep control of our space. This means we must exercise our birthright and steadfastly protect it.
Love for a spouse does not override our necessity to keep our God-given right to rule over our own destiny, by choosing seeds and cultivating our own garden. If we lovingly surrender our space to an aggressive mate, we will soon discover our prison bars are intact, and our cell door is firmly locked. It is never right to invade another person’s space.
We can sufficiently direct and guide our children without an invasion of their space if we study the Bible rules and follow them closely. Parents that take their child’s space will eventually destroy the child or find themselves locked out of their life completely. As I look about me, I see so many modern parents that allow their children the freedom to do anything and everything, except to develop their coping and life management skills, and then they are shocked when they are faced with adult children that are void of these necessities.
The secret to successfully ruling your space and supporting others in their efforts is found in the Bible. If you desire a solution, study the Scripture to find your formula and open your mind to give heed to its instructions. But do not lose sight of the fact that if we hope to be successful in our endeavor, we must go through the channel of prayer; always use prayer, which is the clue to successful living: “And all things, whatsoever you shall ask in prayer, believing, you shall receive,” Matthew 21:22.
Another vital step in our warfare is to have our uniform and armor intact and our weapons handy. These weapons are described in Ephesians 6:10-13: “Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. Put on the whole armor of Yahweh, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Wherefore take unto you the whole armor of Yahweh, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.”
One word of caution: if we find that our problem is that we have allowed someone to take over our space, we should not retaliate in the flesh by trying to take over their space. We should be satisfied with securing our own space and being supportive of others. We need all the encouragement and support we can get.
