Rebelled Against the Command of the LORD.

COMPLETE DEDITACATION

“And the Lord said to me, ‘Tell them, “Do not go up nor fight, for I am not among you; lest you be defeated before your enemies.”  So I spoke to you; yet you would not listen, but rebelled against the command of the Lord, and presumptuously went up into the mountain. And the Amorites who dwelt in that mountain came out against you and chased you as bees do, and drove you back from Seir to Hormah.  Then you returned and wept before the Lord, but the Lord would not listen to your voice nor give ear to you. Deuteronomy 1:42-45 New King James Version

I remember one time when I was looking for a contract at the beginning of the tree planting season. I felt the Lord telling me to go south but I wanted to go north.

I stubbornly refused to obey His command and went north because I had an exhalent reputation there and thought getting a contract would be no problem. I could not beg, borrow or steal a contract.  I was homeless with no money and Jehovah was far from me.

Reluctantly I obeyed the Lord and went south where he wanted me to go in the first place.

The result was the best contract received in thirteen years of planting.

So many times we either think we know more than Jehovah or just stubbornly refuse to have faith in His guidance.

The ultimate result is disaster.

Sometimes when we cry out the Lord refuses to listen to us to teach us the hard way to listen and obey or pay a very high price.

Prayer: Please forgive this sometimes stubborn and obstinate child of Yours my believe Jehovah Yehew (God of His people) for refusing to obey Your wise commands in my life. Even now my love after all these years of experience I can still be stiff necked. Thank you my endearing One for forgiving me and pressing down on me until I relent and become Your cherished obedient child again. I pray this in the name of He who never gave up His sometimes dense disciples Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the sunshine of Jesus sweet love bless you today and every day

As Christ is our King, so too are we His free will servants Joseph a son of Jehovah I have been a faithful servant of our Lord for the past forty years. He has led me to move from the farm to the city. It was there I learned natural medicine as well as to serve by doin volunteer work in a hospital. This was preparing me for the next stage of growth and service unto Him. The next phase was to live in a tent in the western provinces of Canada planting trees. It has here in His marvelous creation of nature that He taught me so much of Himself while serving others in camp as a first aid attendant. If anybody got sick or injured they always came to me. As well, I learned to be a big brother and care about their mental health and for most, it was the first time they were ever loved. This caring for others prepared me for the next step which was to be a teacher all over China. Here not only did my example guide many to our Heavenly King but also taught me how to deal with narcissist. This prepared me to come home to take care of a narcissistic mother while dealing with narcissist family members. It was in China that the Lord also guided me to become a Christian writer which has been faithfully done for the past ten years. I know not what will happen tomorrow but I know who holds tomorrow in His hands and it is Him I place my total confidence and trust in. Joseph a son of Jehovah
