“But he answered and said, I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel. Then came she and worshipped him, saying, Lord, help me. But he answered and said, It is not meet to take the children’s bread, and to cast it to dogs. And she said, Truth, Lord: yet the dogs eat of the crumbs which fall from their masters’ table. Then Jesus answered and said unto her, O woman, great is thy faith: be it unto thee even as thou wilt. And her daughter was made whole from that very hour.”
Matthew 15:24-28 KJV
In my time with Yah today, I meditated on the work He is doing in me as I allow His Holy Spirit to crucify my flesh daily. As I am refined by His fire, all places that guard against vulnerability in Yah’s presence are removed from me. That is mentally, physically and spiritually which brings my very being/nephesh into alignment with His plan for my life. As a bond servant to Yah that is bought with the price of salvation by the blood of Christ Jesus poured out for me on the tree as the lamb of sacrifice for all my short comings in sin, iniquity and transgression, I am made whole. That wholeness comes with many different healings. We, as the children of Yah, are chosen to endure the healing process after accepting responsibility for our situation because of our wicked disobedience and discontentment. Sickness and disease was never supposed to be named among us. It was given to the nations in defense for the salvation of the children of Israel. When we decided to forsake the ways of Yah for the wicked imaginations of men, we became partakers in that vengence as well. But, as we come to ourselves, recognizing the filthy stated that we are in and come to Yah to be cleansed of the filth, we come into the process of healing that He has graceously offered to us. Healing requires us to move into a place of great strength found in vulnerability. The flesh finds comfort in being hardened by pride, but the righteous spirit looks to destroy it so that healing can have its perfect work. Sin is manifest through the body, but healing removes the effects of living with that sin, therefore removing the old and refining the new. Healing happens only for the children of Yah because they are the ones that are equipped to handle it. As someone that has edured many healings, I grow in the understanding of its process. It is not a quick or easy process. It presses the spirit and provides stability to the soul. It is a process that only a true child of Yah can endure. I see why Christ worked many miracles and healing among the people of Yah.
You see, a miracle is a quick show of the power of Yah. It happens to build faith in the hearts of those that are in the position to view it. It moves all of the doubt and unbelieve that is in the heart of men out of the way for a quick moment so they can make the decision of life or death. In that brief moment of seeing Yah is what will guide a person’s path. A critical stance that will be presented to each of us again on our day of Judgement. It is the pivital decision that will decide if one hears “well done” or “depart from me” in that great day of seperating the wheat from the tares and the sheep from the goats.
But healing happens over the process of time. It makes a person whole. This is why it is set aside for the children of Yah. Only one that truly desires a deeper relationship with Yah will have the determination/endurance it takes to press through to recieve it. It is a part of the perfecting process that includes testing, trials and tribulation. It presses the spirit to the vulnerable place it needs to be to recieve the life that lies in the will of Yah. It requires us to take on the position of vunerability, so that when we are made strong, we not only put in the work to keep from being in that place again, but gain a true characteristic of love and compassion to serve our sisters and brothers as they strive to gain perfection. This is the iron that sharpens. It creates the joy of servatude and the desire to be my sister’s keeper. It is the purging of the wicked imaginations of this world that will keep us from becoming one body in Christ Jesus. As pastor always says, “it puts a defibulator on the mind,” to awaken us to the ways of our creation and how to walk in the pathway carved out for each one of us. So I find joy in my weakness that I may have Christ in the end.
So as I put away fear and find the strength of Yah in my position of vulnerability, I am made into a new being with a new understanding of the greatest gifts in which this world cannot give or take away, joy and peace. Just some thoughts I share as I continue Living Like He’s Coming… Shalom☺️.
