Sometimes, when fighting against the darkness of the world, a Christian can begin to lose some motivation. Don’t lose heart! This time of year, the improving weather calls to you. In what seems to be the blink of an eye, nature transforms into a work of art. Beautiful flowers and greening grass weave a tapestry in stark contrast to the winter that those of us in the Northern Hemisphere have just completed. Elohim [‘God’] wants His people to be transformed in such a way! He can do the same work in you. (“YHWH’s Revolution“; “Overcoming Fear during Tough Times“; “Overcoming Satanic Attack“)
YHWH, the same Elohim that inspired and challenged your forefather Abraham, seeks to change your life from winter to a sun-soaked spring indefinitely. He wants to change your discouragement to strength in His Spirit. He seeks to renew your life, as you are set apart to Him. He wants to write a picture of sunshine and joy on your heart. (“Spiritual Fruit & Renewing Your Mind“; “Strongholds & the Armor of YHWH“; “YHWH’s Prayer Shawl of Protection“)
Above all else, guard your heart, for it is the wellspring of life. – Proverbs 4:23, NKJV
If you visit the likes of the Frisk Art Museum, you will see all nature of talent in the works of art that spring from the mind of men. The artwork of YHWH is even more grand. His art doesn’t hang on gallery walls or display on pedestals. His work fills the scene, covering even the crimes of man. If you aren’t preoccupied with driving to work, working overtime or sleeping during the day, His designs are clear to see: in the clouds, animals, flowers, even in the creations of man. (“Foundation of Salvation“; “Roots of Salvation“; “Sleepless Nights: Trust for Provision“; “Abiding With YHWH in Quiet Places“)
Be certain that YHWH’s most amazing work is what He does in your heart. When you allow YHWH to fill your heart, you will never find anything short of a miraculous work of art! He can transform the broken, the desperate into a new work, a new man or woman.
He sent His Son [Yahshua, Jesus] to do a miraculous work 2,000 years ago and can empathize with each and every human being, even you and I.
“For we do not have a High Priest unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but One who was tried in all respects as we are, apart from sin. Therefore, let us come boldly to the throne of favor, in order to receive compassion, and find favor for timely help.” – Hebrews 4:15-16, ISR98
Our Heavenly Father’s attention to the details of your heart seeks to make you a unique and special creation like no other. Will you let Him in? Will you allow YHWH to renew your heart through the power of the Holy Spirit [Sanctified, Set Apart Spirit]? (“Abiding in Trust“)
“And be not conformed to this age, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, in order to prove by you what is the good and pleasing and perfect will of YAHWEH.” – Romans 12:2, HRB
