Perhaps you have recognized that Yeshua ben Elohim (Jesus the son of G-D) is truly the Mashiach (the Messiah), and now you are asking, “What does G-D desire of me?”
G-D’s greatest desire is our right relationship with him.
“ADONAI relates intimately with those who fear him; He makes them know His Covenant.” Psalms 25:8
How do I develop that relationship? Like any relationship, our intimacy with the L-RD is built by spending time together with Him. We need to spend time in His Word, and in prayer.
Psalms 5:4(3) says, “ADONAI, in the morning you will hear my voice; in the morning I lay my needs before you and wait expectantly.”
Clearly, we are to speak with Him even as our feet hit the floor. From our first waking moment, we need to declare our trust in the G-D of our Fathers. This was intent of the traditional “Morning Shema.”*
Have you been told that the Bible a book for scholars?… that only “the rabbis” can interpret Scripture?
Yeshua prayed, “I thank you, Father, L-RD of heaven and earth, that you concealed these things from the sophisticated and educated and revealed them to ordinary folks.” Mathew 11:25
Our Father in Heaven fully intended for His Word to be understood by the am ha’aretz (the common people).
Yeshua promised that “the Counselor, the Ruach HaKodesh (the Holy Spirit), whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you everything; that is, he will remind you of everything I have said to you.” John 14:26
As we dive into His Word every morning, we should pray, “Open my eyes, so that I will see wonders from your Torah.” Psalms 119:18 If we do, the Ruach HaKodesh (the Holy Spirit) will be faithful to do so.
Remember, our G-D desires an intimate relationship with us. As we walk with Him, he will transform us into Messiah’s likeness, and we will be counted righteous.
Speaking of the tzaddikim (the righteous), Psalms 1:2 tells us that “Their delight is in ADONAI’s Torah; on his Torah they meditate day and night. They are like trees planted by streams — they bear their fruit in season, their leaves never wither, everything they do succeeds.”
May we each rejoice in ADONAI, His Word, and our relationship with Him.
*The Shema: “Shema Yisrael! ADONAI Eloheinu, ADONAI echad! Baruch Shem k’vod malchuto, l’olam va’ed!” (Hear oh Israel! The L-RD is our G-D, the L-RD is ONE! Blessed is His Name, Whose glorious kingdom is forever).
