You first…..


“Aaron shall bring the bull for his own sin offering to make atonement for himself

and his household, and he is to slaughter the bull for his own sin offering.” 

Leviticus 16:11

 

Before Aaron who was the high priest could atone for the Israelites he had to atone for

himself and his family first.

If he skipped that, the probability of dying in the tabernacle increased hundredfold.

He had to make sure he was okay before he could help the next person.

Why is this important?

 

It’s important because we need to have the same attitude if we want to help someone else.

I am not saying you must achieve perfection if you want to help someone else.

On the contrary, help where you can but make sure you are being helped.

Make sure you are being helped as you help others.

Don’t be arrogant and think you don’t need help.

 

You can’t do much if you are empty. Let YAH fill you continually. Let Him work on you continually.

Bring to Him your shortcomings and weaknesses daily. Cry out for His grace every chance you get.

It’s an honor for us that He chooses imperfect vessels to use. He could do everything by Himself

but He chooses to use you and me!

And that’s why you need to be first…….

Put it all in His hands……


“Cast your burden on the Lord, and he will sustain you; he will never permit the righteous

to be moved.”

Psalm 55:22

 

This is something we have to learn continuously.

I have to remind myself to constantly bring it all into His hands. I find myself trying to handle life

on my own but that is not the way it’s supposed to be. The more I try to “handle it” the more

stressed I get and the more wrong decisions I make!

We were never meant to carry the troubles we

are carrying at the moment.

We were never meant to hold on to them.

They were meant to be put in YAH’s mighty hands.

He wants to take on the burden you have right now. The worries, the burden’s you are carrying

right now will crush you.

You don’t have to face the pain alone.

You don’t have to put on a brave face in the face of adversity.

Put it all in His hands!

 

You don’t have to worry about directing your life because He wants to do that. He wants you to trust Him

with your life. Put it into His hands and stop trying to drive!

Bring it all friends, the pain, the fear, the uncertainty, the questions, the shortcomings, the failures,

the confusion, the guilt and condemnation………

Don’t hold on anything, and most importantly don’t own anything!

Sometimes we take ownership of stuff we are not meant to take ownership for.

Put it all in His hands, full of faith He will take care of it.

As I conclude I would really urge you to meditate on Matthew 11:28-30.

 

 

Blessings to you my friends!
