Considering Your Motives

by Ruth Greene

“All the ways of a man are clean in his own eyes, But YHWH weighs the spirits.” – Proverbs 16:2, ISR98

rationalizeIt seems that a person can rationalize almost anything when given the chance. This is especially true when a person has no real standard for judging right and wrong. You can always seem to find a way to prove that you’re right before putting a plan into motion. (John 3:17-21Proverbs 16:18, 22; “Understanding Sin“; “YHWH’s Track of Righteousness“; “Christian: Live Your Belief“;”Strengthening Your Motivation“; “Life Healing and Belief“)

Before putting any plan into action consider these things:

Do you seek YHWH first in your life when making decisions?
Is your plan in harmony with YHWH’s truth?
Will your plan work in the world of man?
Is your attitude pleasing to your Heavenly Father?

Bible knowledge“Every one that is proud in heart is an abomination to YHWH: though hand join in hand, he shall not be unpunished. By mercy and truth iniquity is purged: and by the fear of YHWH men depart from evil. When a man’s ways please YHWH, he maketh even his enemies to be at peace with him. Better is a little with righteousness than great revenues without right.” – Proverbs 16:5-8, ISR98

When you live in a way that is pleasing to YHWH, He will bring your enemies into peace with you. Put your energy into pleasing Your Heavenly Father instead pleasing men (or yourself), or seeking revenge and retaliation. Your Father must be your trust despite appearances that may seem to indicate otherwise. In this way, you are pleasing your Father, which is all that matters. (Acts 17:301 Thessalonians 2:4; Galatians 1:10; 1 John 4:1; “Trust YHWH, Not World Leaders“; “Are You a Christian First or Last?“; “YHWH’s Prayer Shawl of Protection“)

“For YAHWEH so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son,
that everyone believing into Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
John 3:16, HRB
Heavenly Father,
Thank you for sending the Messiah, your only begotten Son to be my Savior. I believe in Him and have made this belief the center of my life. Because of this, by faith I have everlasting life! Thank you! I repent of my sins and of my past, freely admitting that I have fallen short of Your righteousness. I look fully forward to you in my life and commit my life to You. Thank You YHWH, my Heavenly Father for setting me free in the name of your Son Yahshua [Jesus]. May it be as you have promised!
genuine-articleYou will never enjoy true freedom through the Messiah and power of the Holy Spirit unless you read and absorb the Bible in prayer and trust. You will never know this freedom until you experience it for yourself. Get to know your Heavenly Father, His Son and allow the Holy Spirit to work in your life. The Holy Spirit is your teacher, your Holy Counselor that lives in you to help you learn about the truth of YHWH and His spiritual gifts.
Satan does not want you to have the excellence of YHWH in your life. People pray for protection and want to be taken care of, but often do little in growing close to Him. The world, your husband, your wife, your family, your government do not build your trust in YHWH or free you from spiritual bondage. Your church or your pastor cannot save you. Education, power and money will not free you, but only the Word of your Heavenly Father. Salvation is a daily walk, an act of love for yourself and for those around you, not a one-time event that centers only on you. Make the Word of YHWH your own, your very life!
YHWH is Yahweh, the covenant name of your Heavenly Father.
The names Yahshua and Yahushua are original language names for Jesus,
He is often referred simply as the Messiah or Master.
