The Lord wants to do some incredible things in you and through you and because of that you need
to pay attention to what you are exposing yourself to consistently. You need to take a long hard look at the
people you call your friends and ask yourself if they are encouraging you in your faith or are killing
your faith. You need to take a long hard look at all that you digest (social media, music, media) and ask
yourself if it’s strengthening your faith or killing it.
How is it at home? Have you created an environment for Yeshua to speak to you easily or are there
just too many distractions? (I am dealing with this right now)
All this matters. Like I said in the beginning, the Lord has incredible things in store for you.
Let’s look at a story in the bible that will bring home what I am talking about.
In Mark chapter 5 a man named Jairus meets Yeshua. His daughter is near death and has come to
the Him for help. The Lord agrees to go with Jairus and we pick up the story when Yeshua
arrives at the house.
“And when He had gone in, He said to them, Why do you make an uproar and weep? The little
girl is not dead but is sleeping.
And they laughed and jeered at Him. But He put them all out, and taking the child’s father and mother
and those who were with Him, He went in where the little girl was lying.”
Mark 5:39, 40
The Lord was about to perform a miracle but in order to do that He had to put out the people
who were laughing and jeering at Him. He had to change the environment. It would be impossible for
Him to do what needed to be done if the people stayed.
And that is why the parents stayed. They may have had their doubts but their little faith was enough.
All the Lord needs is a little faith. But doubt, and fear are a different story.
In the very next chapter we look at how the Lord could not do any miracles except heal a few people here
and there because the majority of people didn’t trust Him, doubted Him.
“But Jesus said to them, A prophet is not without honor (deference, reverence) except in his [own]
country and among [his] relatives and in his [own] house.
And He was not able to do even one work of power there, except that He laid His hands on a few
sickly people [and] cured them.”
Mark 6:4,5 (emphasis mine)
If there is no faith it makes it hard for the Lord to move, very hard!
But to my main point, the Lord had to change His environment by putting out the negative crowd.
If the Lord did that how much more do we need to? We need to take a long hard look at every aspect
that makes up our environment that I mentioned earlier and start making some decisions.
If we are to walk in all the amazing things the Lord has for us we need to cut off the things that
are weighing us down, the things that keep us in fear, the things that make us doubt YAH, the things
that contradict the word the Lord gave us about your lives. When I talk about things I am also talking
about people. We have some really toxic relationships and think it’s okay but it’s not. Those toxic
relationships are doing you major harm.
We need to ask for the Lord’s help and wisdom. This can only be done successfully with Him.
On that final thought enjoy the rest of your weekend.
Bless you friends
