“I am the Lord, and there is no other; There is no God besides Me. I will gird you, though you have not known Me, that they may know from the rising of the sun to its setting That there is none besides Me. I am the Lord, and there is no other; I form the light and create darkness, I make peace and create calamity; I, the Lord, do all these things.’” (Isaiah 45:5-7)
Regardless of who we think we are, there is but one creator. And He tells us that this is so, “I am the Lord, and there is no other; There is no God besides Me.” (Vs 5)
There’s nothing we can say or do that doesn’t involve Yahweh, our entire lives have been laid out before us, and every circumstance has been outlined in advance of our coming or going, regardless of what we may do He is going to rule over us. So much for free will.
He tells us, “I will gird you, though you have not known Me, that they may know from the rising of the sun to its setting That there is none besides Me.” (Vs 6)
YHWH has girded us, surrounded, or clothed us. conditioned everything around us. Even before we have come to know Him. He wants us to know who it is that put us into our circumstances. There’s always a purpose for everything He does in our lives, and that purpose is to teach. He creates circumstances that will teach us the things we must know in order to be a Saint.
So, let’s put an end to my wants, and my needs, it shall not be so, unless it is accordance with His will. Ultimately, we will do God’s will. We have been girded! (surrounded, covered, or embraced)
There’s nowhere else to go, we cannot save ourselves from Him, even if we deny His existence.
“I am the Lord, and there is no other;” (Vs 6)
How are we going to run, or hide from our creator? It is not possible! He will use whatever is needed to bring us full circle back to Him, or kill us in the process. And what we fail to understand about Him is both light and darkness are in His tool kit.
“I form the light and create darkness, I make peace and create calamity; I, the Lord, do all these things.’” (Vs 7)
It is not beyond the realm of possibility that He will use the dark side to herd us into that place where He needs us to be in order to teach us an object lesson. The life of Job is a clear illustration of how He accomplishes His goal by using the dark side. How many times has he hardened hearts, like Pharaoh, and Sihon, the king of Heshbon?
We may not understand what YHWH is doing in our present circumstances, but we can be certain that it is about a lesson, either for us, or He is using us to teach others a lesson.
In either case, this is what He does, when He sends us into this world, He will teach us, and some lessons are difficult, and sometimes we will fail. Unfortunately, we learn more from our failures, than we ever will from doing everything right. So those among us now, who are facing difficult times, need to know that this is just another lesson, and as soon as we learn it’s purpose, we can move on to the next level.
So, whether or not you are aware of it, you are attending Yahweh University for Saints. Those of us who are at the top of their class have learned to listen to the Holy Spirit, and will overcome this world.
1st John 5:3 For this is the love of God, that we keep His commandments. And His commandments are not burdensome.
4 For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world—our faith.
5 Who is he who overcomes the world, but he who believes that Yahshua / Jesus is the Son of God?
Shalom my Friends,
