Equipping Your Reimagine Journey
“How blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked,
Nor stand in the path of sinners,
Nor sit in the seat of scoffers!
But his delight is in the Torah of YHWH,
And in His Torah he meditates day and night.
He will be like a tree firmly planted by the streams of water,
Which yields its fruit in its season
And its leaf does not wither;
And in whatever he does, he prospers.”
- Psalm 1:1-3
Many people confess that they are Christians when asked. But that's just the problem, you have to ask them! Many people habitually attend church every Sunday, but apart from their church attendance you could not tell if they really believe what they profess to believe. The world is full of people who love to conform but what they do in private will tell you what they really believe. If your pastor would spend a day with you wherever you go as an invisible observer, he would know if you are really a believer. That's actually what the LORD YESHUA does every moment of your life. YHWH knows those who are His.
There is one sure indicator that a person has been born again from above – a hunger for the imperishable word of YHWH. A baby naturally cries out for milk; so does a person newly born in the spirit. Every human being naturally longs for sustenance. The spiritual man also longs for the spiritual sustenance of the Torah. The Psalmist says that the man of YHWH delights in the Torah. The Law of YHWH is his joy and his preoccupation day and night. He reads it, thinks about it and asks YHWH about it. He has a continuing conversation with the SPIRIT and it becomes alive in his life. He confirms his belief on the passage by speaking it into his life and applies it diligently. This practice becomes a lifestyle as Torah permeates every aspect of the believer's life.
YHWH promised that the believer will be like a tree planted by streams of water. "...as the days of a tree are the days of my people and Mine elect shall long enjoy the work of the their hands"(Isaiah 65:22b). The Scriptures declares that if a man meditates on the Torah day and night and is careful to observe everything written in it, he will prosper and will have good success (Joshua 1:8). Everything that a believer needs to live a godly life has already been provided through the supernatural promises given by YHWH as he partakes of the divine nature in union with YESHUA the Messiah.
So, in application, we must partake of the Torah daily, masticating it well to digestible morsels so it can provide nutrition to our spirit as well as our souls and bodies. Yes, first it benefits our spirit, then as we speak it and apply it, our soul and bodies also prospers. If we believe the promises of YHWH, then we must expect it to become reality in our daily circumstances. We begin each day by declaring the truth of YHWH's word in our circumstances and command the circumstances to conform to YHWH's promises. Expect nothing but a miracle!
Nothing is impossible to him who believes!
