Torah Portion BEHAR – Vayikra (Leviticus) 25:1-26:2
I tell you, God will see that things are made right for them. He will make sure it happens quickly. “But when the Son of Man comes, will he find people on earth who have faith?” Luke 18:8
Shabbat shalom, dearly beloved!
It is during times of great testing that we realize what “we are made of”. By this I mean that we are made out of clay, out of dust. And it is at that time when we are forced to make choices that can affect our lives and the lives of millions. When Shaul (Paul) was challenged with great trials, he realized that he was a weak vessel made out of clay. It was this realization that made him the powerful Apostle that he was.
But we have this treasure in earthen vessels that the excellence of the power may be of God and not of us. 2 Corinthians 4:7
It is only when we realize how frail we are that we can really be strong – not in our power but in His! However, when we realize how weak we are, there is a serious temptation to run away and to quit. It is at this time that we must humble ourselves as low as we can to acknowledge that we cannot really be faithful and win the race of faith without Him. He is a compassionate High
Priest and, if we ask for help in time of need, He will not deny us. Maybe the help will not be the one you planned on, but His help is always perfect and on time.
He can have compassion on those who are ignorant and going astray, since he himself is also subject to weakness. Hebrews 5:2
Yeshua is also “subject to weakness?” Can you imagine the Master, the God of the Universe, “subject to weakness?” But He was made a human vessel, a Vessel of Clay! He will forever make intercession for us as a man, as the Last Adam. He knows what it means to be tempted to the limits. He experienced that in Gethsemane,
He went a little farther and fell on His face, and prayed, saying, “O My Father, if it is possible, let this cup pass from Me; nevertheless, not as I will, but as You will.” Matthew 26:39
It was His example of submission to Abba in Heaven, at times of impossible-to-describe anguish, that is a beacon of light before us. We will all have to go through anguish at times and we will all have the choice of asking for “the cup of sorrow” to pass. But as we do, let us not forget the last part of Yeshua’s prayer,
“Not as I will but as You will!”
It is that part that made the difference between Him staying a normal man on earth or fulfilling His calling as the Messiah, the Savior, the Redeemer! Had He quit at that time, all of history would have been changed forever. It is honest to ask for the “cup to pass” – no one enjoys hardship and sorrow – but honesty is not enough. We must have faith to succeed. In this case, the faith that I am talking about is not the one that moves mountains and does great
Miracles – that is a Gift of Faith and it is wonderful! But the kind of faith that I am talking about is a deep trust in YHVH, come what may. You could also call it “blind trust”. For at the time that you choose to trust in Him and abandon yourself to His Perfect Will in a hard situation, you will not be able to “see clearly” before you trust.
It is this kind of Faith that leads people to become faithful and fulfill their assignments in life. And this kind of Faith or “blind trust” comes with courage and selflessness. That is Messiah’s character, the one we can draw on when extremely challenged!
Blessed is the man who keeps on going when times are hard. After he has come
through them, he will receive a crown. The crown is life itself. God has
promised it to those who love him. James 1:12
In Hebrew the word for faith and faithfulness is from the same root, and that root is Amen! True faith causes us to walk in “blind trust” and to Amen Yah’s Perfect will, even when we do not understand it. Then we will stay on course and, being faithful to Him and to our life assignments to the end, will receive His Crown of Life – we will rule and reign with Him!
‘Don’t be afraid of what you are going to suffer. I tell you, the devil will put some of you in prison to test you. You will be treated badly for ten days. Be faithful, even if it means you must die. Then I will give you a crown. The crown is life itself. Revelation 2:10
An Effective Prayer
Adonai, help me to have courage to believe and trust you, even if I can’t see clearly. Help me to be selfless to obey You and finish my life assignment when I am most tempted to be selfish and run away.
Again, a second time, He went away and prayed, saying, “O My Father, if this cup cannot pass away from Me unless I drink it, Your will be done.” Matthew 26:42
Had Yeshua ran away in Gethsemane, you and I would not be saved! In the same way, every person that quits their life assignment because of lack of faith and trust, fear, and selfishness, (especially in the midst of hardship) will affect millions of people. It is like a Domino effect!
And He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Messiah may rest upon me. 2 Corinthians 12:9
May you trust Him against all odds and finish your life assignment!
