Not Good Enoughs.

HE IS THE BOSS

Whatever you do [whatever your task may be], work from the soul [that is, put in your very best effort], as [something done] for the Lord and not for men Colossians 3:23 The Holy Bible, Amplified Version

Have you ever worked for the “not good enoughs”?

These are ungrateful folks that no matter how hard you try it is never good enough for them. I used to be a people pleaser. It was not that their praise was needed for my ego but that there was a genuine desire to make others happy. It was and still is devastating to try your best only to experience their gratitude by slowly slicing it apart as with a knife with their complaints on how it is not good enough.

Now, that I am a more mature Christian, I seek Jesus’ pleasure not mans. He does not make a big deal out of it but there is a gentle loving feeling in the heart when He softly whispers:” Well done My good and faithful servant.” That is more rewarding than anyone else could say or do.

Work for Christ nor man. He is much easier to work for and much more appreciative. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Hamelech ( Jesus my Lord King ) – Psalm 98:6 for blessing me with the honour of being Your obedient servant. I am filled with such wonderful joy when You esteem my dedication unto You in daily service to the King I adore. I thank you in Your majestic name. Amen

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love fill your heart today and every day. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Have You Ever Worked For

GREATEST CONTENTMENT

Work willingly at whatever you do, as though you were working for the Lord rather than for people. Colossians 3:23Holy Bible, New Living Translation Version

Have you ever worked for the nit pickers before?

Nit picker are those that no matter how good your work is they can always find something wrong with it. They take all the steam out of your desire to excel at what you are doing. This is a real tragedy when the nit pickers are parents.

It takes a lot of work and therapy to get over their poison they inject into their childrens impressionable minds.

Teachers can have the same short term affect.

When I do work I like to step back and ask my Heavenly Father if He is pleased with what has been done.

Most times He is and there is a warm feeling of satisfaction flowing through me.

When He isn’t there is no scolding. He just redirects my effort and then I step back and marvel at what we have accomplished and gratefully thank Him. There has been numerous times when He guides me to do something that I have no desire to do but do it with great gusto to please Him, which gives immeasurable pleasure to me.                                   

Most times when the project is completed I see what He was doing and the finished project looks fantastic even though it looked stupid and was laughed at by others or looked ugly but was beautiful when completed.

Sometimes we will not see the purpose of His task until we enter our Heavenly home. That is okay though because we take satisfaction in knowing what we did pleased our Heavenly King in the here and now.

Work for Jehovah, not man. It is appreciated so much more. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Helech ‘Olam (The Lord our King Forever) for the esteem of being Your humble, obedient, loyal servant. It is the greatest delight that can be offered to me. I exalt You in the name of the King of Kings Jesus Christ. Amen

May you be blessed with the gift of love, the gift of peace, the gift of joy. May you be blessed with numerous opportunities to share these gifts with others today.

Is Not a Real Christian

SERVING CHRIST

 Dear brothers and sisters,we urge you in the name of the Lord Jesus to live in a way that pleases God. 1 Thessalonians 4:1 Holy Bible, New Living Translation

A Sunday Christian is not a real Christian but a bench warmer. Sunday Christians are those that only have anything to do with Christianity on Sunday during a sermon (even then, how many are either sleeping or secretly playing video games during the sermon? How many are looking at their watches and wondering when the sermon will finally get over?).

Being a real Christian is the hardest commitment you will ever make. It means you live a life that will be mocked by those around you, especially family and friends. It means giving up your wants and desires for Jehovahs will in your life. It means suffering, hardship, and a lot of tears. Yes, this is a calling only for the weak, not the strong.                                                        

If you are strong you will depend upon yourself which only brings failure.

If you are weak you will depend upon Jehovah. That will not only bring success in His endeavors in your life but the greatest blessing of all, an extremely close relationship with Jehovah, Jesus and the Holy Spirit. It will bring you a fulfilling life and accomplishments like you would never dream of. It is the greatest of adventures there can ever be.

“Some Christians haven’t even attempted to think about whether or not they would die for Jesus because they haven’t really been living for Him.” — DC Talk

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Hamelech ( Jesus my Lord King ) for the distinction of being one of Your chosen subservient servant. I laud You in Your majestic name. Amen

May you always be blessed with the strength of the Lord in Your heart and in your mind. Joseph a son Jehovah

He Always Wins.

WHEN SATAN ATTACKS

The Lord says I will fight those who fight you Isaiah 49:25 Holy Bible, New Living Translation

This is not just a promise to an ancient nation but unto every child that belongs unto Jehovah.

One thing I have noticed over the decades not just in my own life but also in the lives of our brothers and sisters in Christ is that it always seems like the wicked are winning when in a battle against us. Then just as it looks like certain defeat, Jehovah comes into the fray and we are delivered.

Oh, that does not mean we will go without our battle scars, but they are used to teach us and to strengthen us.

Sometimes it looks like the enemy has won and we move on in life but there comes a time when we encounter our foe again, it may be a few days later, it may be a few decades later but it is shocking to see how much of their lives has been destroyed through their wicked actions. I stand in awe and terror when witnessing Jehovahs hand of justice upon the wicked.              

Jehovah fights fair and He always wins. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Gador Milchamah (The Lord is Mighty in Battle) for being the undefeatable protector of Your loving adoring child. Thank you for smack downing satan and his minions when they attack me. Thank you for turning my foes weapons against them to cause their self destruction. I praise You in the name of the conquering King of whom I am His worshiping servant King Jesus Christ. Amen

May you be blessed with peace and joy every day.

To Even Equal

GODS DELIGHTS

The world has nothing to offer to even equal much less surpass Christ. Joseph a son of Jehovah

I have worked for many that no matter how hard I worked our how great the job was when completed they could would and did always find something to complain about.

There were good employers as well but even then even though their praise and satisfaction was it always seemed as if there was something missing.

Society is a cruel slave master, I prefer Jesus as my King. He is much more loving and appreciative. Joseph a son of Jehovah

I have worked for Christ and even when it is a minor accomplishment there was a sense of accomplishment that pleased my Heavenly King. It wasn’t inflating my ego, just a well done good and faithful servant feeling. It surpassed any accolades any employer gave me.

For God is working in you, giving you the desire and the power to do what pleases him. Philippians 2:13 The Holy Bible, New Living Translation

Obedience is an act of faith. Joseph a son of Jehovah

The master said, ‘Well done, my good and faithful servant. Matthew 25:23 Holy Bible New Living Translation

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Helech ‘Olam (The Lord our King Forever) Psalms 10:16 for blessing me with assigning me duties to accomplish that has eternal gratitude and well as receiving Your accolades here and now. This blesses me with meaning in my life. I exalt You in Your majestic name. Amen

May your house be filled with joy in the morning and sweet dreams at night. May it be a home where love has come to live. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Did Jesus Use A

JESUS TALKS WITH ME

Did Jesus use a modem, for the sermon on the mount?
Did He ever use a broadcast fax, to get His message out?
Did disciples carry cell phones, as they went about?
Did Jesus use a modem, for the sermon on the Mount? Did the Apostle use a laptop, with lots of RAM and ROM?
Did he use an email alias such as This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. ?
Did the man from Macedonia send an email saying “come”?
Did the Apostle use a laptop with lots of RAM and ROM?

Did Moses use a joystick at the parting of the sea?
And a Global Positioning System to show him where to be?
Did he write the law on tablets, or are they really on CD?
Did Moses use a joystick at the parting of the sea?

Did Jesus really die for us that Friday on the tree?
Or was it just a hologram, a bit of wizardry?
Can you download the video clip to play on your PC?
Did Jesus really die for us one day upon a tree?

If in your life, the voice of God is sometimes hard to hear,
With other voices calling, His doesn’t touch your ear.
Then set aside the laptop and modem, unplug the fancy gear,
Open up that dusty Bible, and talk to Him in prayer.

When We Run Into Problems

tested in afflictionWe can rejoice, too, when we run into problems and trials, for we know that they help us develop endurance. And endurance develops strength of character, and character strengthens our confident hope of salvation. Romans 5:3-5 The Holy Bible New Living Translation

I do not know about you but I do not exactly dance for joy and sing praises unto Jehovah whenever problems and troubles come into my life.

At first I used to ask why it was happening to me like a whining little child (come on we all do ).

Then I would be asking what the Holy Spirit was trying to teach me through these events.

Now, I understand that even though bad things happen to good folks for no reason every problem and trouble can be used to fortify some part of our character (which most time either I though I was strong in them or did not realize how weak I was in them).

Jehovah has a purpose for every problem. He uses them to mature your character and to develop Your relationship with Him ever stronger. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Tsori ( Lord my Strength ) Psalm 19:14 for blessing me with problems and troubles to help strengthen my character to become ever more of the holy child You desire me to be. I exalt You in the name of my strongest savior Jesus Christ. Amen

May Christ bless you with love, joy and peace today and every day. Joseph a son of Jehovah Photo and article @ Joseph a son of Jehovah 2019
