Removing Facades

Each of us ha daily challenges in life.  Though I hear FATHER’S Voice, it does not guarantee that I will not have my own set of challenges today.  I am a work in progress just like the readers of this blog.  I have made my share of poor decisions just like the next person.  We all need to be transparent and not misrepresent ourselves as having no issues.  Walking in faith does not deny the existence of an issue, it simply expects to overcome the issue by FATHER’S Word and promises. 

In Hebrews chapter 11, it is written:

30 By faith the walls of Jericho fell down after they were encircled for seven days.

31 By faith the harlot Rahab did not perish with those who did not believe, when she had received the spies with peace.

32 And what more shall I say? For the time would fail me to tell of Gideon and Barak and Samson and Jephthah, also of David and Samuel and the prophets:

33 who through faith subdued kingdoms, worked righteousness, obtained promises, stopped the mouths of lions,

34 quenched the violence of fire, escaped the edge of the sword, out of weakness were made strong, became valiant in battle, turned to flight the armies of the aliens.

35 Women received their dead raised to life again.

How many of us have had to walk in faith where our life depended upon it like those mentioned above?  Let us reexamine ourselves and our walk to see if we are projecting something we are not.  The ego would project constant happiness and success when that is truly not the case.  If we are being Spiritually challenged, let us remain steadfast in the faith.  If our relationships are being challenged let us walk in unconditional Love.  If our future isn’t looking so bright, let us walk in hope and allow FATHER to minister to us in this area.

In Genesis chapter 50, Joseph was approached by his brothers who had betrayed him and placed him in harm’s way:

16 So they sent messengers to Joseph, saying, “Before your father died he commanded, saying,

17 ‘Thus you shall say to Joseph: “I beg you, please forgive the trespass of your brothers and their sin; for they did evil to you.” ’ Now, please, forgive the trespass of the servants of the God of your father.” And Joseph wept when they spoke to him.

18 Then his brothers also went and fell down before his face, and they said, “Behold, we are your servants.”

19 Joseph said to them, “Do not be afraid, for am I in the place of God?

20 But as for you, you meant evil against me; but God meant it for good, in order to bring it about as it is this day, to save many people alive.

21 Now therefore, do not be afraid; I will provide for you and your little ones.” And he comforted them and spoke kindly to them.

Joseph endured much pain and suffering but FATHER’S Love prevailed when it came time to restore his relationship with his family.  We all make mistakes and want others to overlook them and not judge us.  Let Love prevail in our lives and remove our own facades so that our relationships have a purity and no judgment attached in any manner.
