Daily Blessing and Quotes from Dave’s Epistle’s

Yehovah bless you and keep you;
Yehovah make His face shine upon you, and be gracious to you;
Yehovah lift up His countenance upon you, and give you peace.
Numbers 6:24-26

Our friend, mentor and coach, Dave Coffield, sends me a letter a couple times a month that Darlene affectionately calls “Dave’s Epistle’s.” I have shared from his Epistle’s before, below is from one of his most recent letters.

“I hear from time to time the idea that we need to strive to be pleasing to God and not to displease Him. We live with the nagging, background fear that we might slip up, might not try hard enough, might come up short. It is a performance mindset and once you start down that road there is no good outcome. God’s standard for being pleased is perfection. Absolute, utter perection. Good luck with that. “

“I would suggest that God is totally pleased with us because He views us through the shed blood of His Son Jesus, through the righteousness with which we are clothed becasue of His mercy, grace, and love. It says something wonderful about Him, not us.”

“The motivation to live pleasing to our Father is based on His love relationship with us. It is not performance; it is a response to the marvel of who He is and the wonder of His love for us.”

“I am free to engage with Jesus becasue I don’t have to. He won’t love me more becasue I have been “good” today; and He won’t love me less if I have been “bad.” He either loves us completely, accepts us completely, is completely pleased with us right now, or He never will. It is all about the finished work of Jesus.”

Daily Blessing and Personal Prayer to Jesus, The Amen.

Numbers 6:24-26

The Amen

“The Amen, the faithful and true Witness, the Beginning of the creation of God, says this.” (Rev. 3:14, NASB). In halls of honor and annals of fame, the values of your unique title Jesus, The Amen, is wholly unsurpassed both in weight of credit and height of merit. This designation might well be the one to which you, my Redeemer, referred to when promising the overcomers of Pergamos and Philadelphia a new name because of their fidelity to what you termed, “My faith” and “My word” (Rev. 2:13,17; 3:8,12). If I diligently searched the chief cities of the nations, examined all the records of the centuries and ransacked the literature of continents the world over, I would never find another bearing this name. The implication of its meaning directs me solely to you Jesus, you are the only One that fully comprehends the mind of God, faithfully conforms to the will of God and finally confirms the Word of God; this you do entirely, completely and perfectly. You do not allow a fraction of any one of the counsels, purposes or desires of our eternal Father to go unrealized. To every divine utterance you say, “So be it,” and fulfill it to the minutest detail, irrespective of what it might cost you. The Gospel of John records that on twenty-five occasions (see list below) you prefaced the declaration you were about to make with a double “Amen,” which is rendered in the New American Standard Bible, “Truly, Truly.” In every instance your words which followed expressed a truth that man would not have known apart from you revealing them to us. In your use of it, you took the word “Amen” out of its usual setting at the end of a sentence or petition and used it at the beginning. Other than you Jesus, no one else has the authority to do so. Your action implies, “I, the Amen, say unto you,” (Jn. 3:3); but the word was not actually used as a title until you had rendered obedience even unto death. In Gethsemane, you refused defense against the rabble crowd, saying that more than 288,000 angels were at your beck and call; “But that would thwart the prophetic plan of God. For it has been written that it would happen this way.” (Mt. 26:54, TPT) You used this number to show that you had more resources in your zero hour of abject weakness than was available to David at the zenith of his strength (1 Chr. 27:1). So, you accepted the cup (Mt. 26:42). As a result of you saying “so be it” to every word of God, you confirmed the promises made to the fathers (Rom. 15:8). Therefore, today all the promises of God are centered and circled in you, and I add my “amen” to the glory of God (2 Cor. 1:19-20 R.V.). I affirm again that no one else, anywhere at any time, always and altogether, said “so be it” to every jot and tittle of the will of our Father. Because you did Jesus, you are able to claim when challenged, as the supreme proof of your Sonship, “I came down from heaven, not to do Mine own will, but the will of Him that sent Me” (Jn. 6:38).
