G-d tells us that we ought to be a people who walk with spiritual awareness or are walking circumspectly, to see what’s happening around us. You might even say that we should also learn to be more sensitive, alert and to respond to others needs and lives for Messiah. But what happens to us when we fail or pay no attention to anything, or anyone, and are here, but make ourselves unavailable to G-d? Are we not a people with our heads stuck in the sand? Here’s something to meditate on.

 Having your head in the sand is like being asleep. G-d warns us to stay alert so we may be effective for him

 1Thess 5:6 Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober.

 

Being alert, paying close attention, and using our time for G-d is wise, and is his will for us

Eph 5:14 Wherefore he saith, Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Moshiach shall give thee light.15  See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise, 16  Redeeming the time, because the days are evil.17  Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of ADONAI is.

Favoritism often called partiality in the bible really means; the favoring of one person or group over others with equal claims; biased or prejudiced in favor of a person, group, side, etc., over another. Many Pastors today often seem to fall pray to these situations. Not only they alone, but certain groups of the body of the messiah express favoritism. If you belong to this click or that click you deserve to get more attention over the rest of others or your shown respect, love ect. more then others. The bible however has something to say on this very issue. Favoritism or partiality is forbidden in the New Covenant as well as the Old. The dangers of being in a leader position and showing favoritism can lead many into causing divisions, quarrels, gossip, and strife in the believing community. Beware of showing favoritism! Here’s something to meditate on.

Learn to conduct your walk in Messiah without partiality towards any

1Ti 5:21 I charge you before Hashem (G-d) and Mashiach Yeshua (Messiah Jesus) and the malachim ha bechirim (chosen angels) that these directives you keep without discrimination, doing nothing on the mekor (basis) of masoh panim (partiality-favoritism).

Showing examples of partiality will cause others to despise and disrespect us, as well as violates G-d word

Mal 2:9  Therefore have I also made you contemptible and shefalim (low) before kol Ha Am (the people) because ye have not been shomrim (watchmen) dar’khei (of my ways), but have shown partiality in the torah (law).

After 20 years in following the Messiah, I personally have seen various personal promises of G-d kept. There are also times however when life tries or seems to dictate the contrary to us. There are other times where life is so ridiculous, and frustrating we wonder when will we ever see the promises of G-d come to pass? But the good news is that we can whole heartily rely upon G-d, no matter what our issues may be. G-d knows how to keep a promise and he good at too! Here’s something to mediate on

 

Faith and patience will help us endure for G-ds promises to come

 Heb 6:12 That you not become atz’lanit (sluggards) but be imitators of the ones who through Emunah (faith) and zitzfleisch (patience) inherit the hav’tachot (promises).

 A great example of endurance and faith of waiting on G-ds promises to be fulfilled, was Avraham our forefather. In the end of his waiting he obtained G-d promises!

 

Heb 6:15 And thus, having waited with zitzfleisch,(patience) Avraham Avinu (Abraham our father) obtained the hav’tachah (promise).
