It is ‘womans’ ‘ day in S Africa ! Besides us being the weaker of flesh, are we strong in our hearts? Are we beautiful not only on the outside, but on the inside of our bodies. Our inner – most being! Have we come to the place where we are growing in our love walk with our King, our Bridegroom, YaHUShA? What kind of spiritual clothes are we wearing. Unrighteous filthy rags, as our sin; have we decided to turn from our lust ways of all the fantastic idols? What are IDOLs – ‘things’ that keep us so busy, that you couldn’t bear doing other things more important. Ignoring those in need, poor children who have no parents, or mom’s who are struggling trying to support their children, when their husband has passed away. Perhaps spending our last bit of privileged finance on new things, that are not even a need. If we have not used or worn items or things for more than 3 years, I ask myself, when will I use them or need them.
Consider a garment being made, of fine linen, that has taken so long to prepare, the embroidery and stitching of a skilled woman, the bead – work and placing little diamonds in alternate places. Working in the heat and sweat pouring down your face as you concentrate to get every detail perfect. Selecting your linen material, threads, beads and perfect diamonds, collected over the years of work and intense concentration. Then to think of your lace trimmings and your veil so sparkling white headed with a beautiful tiara. If this took years for you to prepare, in delight of your preparation to wear on a very special day, wouldn’t you then take every care of not only making that beautiful gown, but not letting it get spoiled. So is it likened to your heart and the desires for eternal life, peace and joy! Daily, over years, you would be delighted in the progress of learning of what your Bridegroom requires of you, your faithfulness, love, honour and desire to be His in every way possible.
Isaiah 55:5 – 6 “See, a nation you do not know you shall call, and a nation who does not know you run to you, because of YaHUaH your Elohim, and the Set-apart One of Yisra’el, for He has adorned you.” 6 Seek YaHUaH while He is to be found, call on Him while He is near. 7 Let the wrong forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts. Let him return to YaHUaH, who has compassion on him, and to our Elohim, for He pardons much. 8 For My thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways My ways,” declares YaHUaH. 9 “For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways, and My thoughts than your thoughts. 10 “For as the rain comes down, and the snow from the heavens, and do not return there, but water the earth, and make it bring forth and bud, and give seed to the sower and bread to the eater. 11 so is My Word that goes forth from My mouth – it does not return to Me empty, but shall do what I please, and shall certainly accomplish what I sent it for. 12 “For with joy you go out, and with peace you are brought in – the mountains, and the hills break forth into singing before you, and all the trees of the field clap the hands.
