Create Something That Is

                                                                             

You send out Your Spirit, they are created. Psalm 104:30 Holy Bible Amplified Version

It has been in chaos that Jehovah has done the best work in my life. Because out of the chaos I did not know if my butt was up or down. I had no one to turn to for help.

Well, except where I should have gone in the first place.

And, that of course, is to He who does amazing things in chaos Jehovah, the creator.

Sometimes, when I was a teacher, I would make up a lesson plan for a class that was sure going to be easy to teach. It was total disaster and complete chaos. At break time I would go out into the stair well, get on my knees and pray my heart out. During the next part of the class I felt the Holy Spirit moving me and the class turned out fantastic, better than expected with my lesson.

“There is no situation so chaotic that God cannot from that situation, create something that is surpassingly good. He did it at the creation. He did it at the cross. He is doing it today.” — Handley C. G. Moule

If your life is in chaos go to the one who created amazing things out of chaos, listen to Him, trust Him and obey Him. Watch the amazing things He will create out of your chaos. I speak from a lot of experience.

Prayer: Thank You Jehovah Mephalti (The Lord my Deliverer) for blessing me with Thy divine deliverance through every chaotic experience I have endured and for teaching me through that experience. I extol Thee in the name of He who made sense of salvation Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the gentle assurance of Jesus’ sweet love encompass you today and every day.

One Waits Quietly.

                                                  

 It is good that one waits quietly. Lamentations 3:25-26 Holy Bible Amplified Version

When I was a baby Christian, I was the perpetual chicken with its head cut off.

The Lord would give me a revelation of a event that was going to occur. I would go off half cocked all over the place and say:” Is it here Lord?” Look someplace else and repeat the question. Think of a child looking for hidden Easter eggs and that was me.

Reflecting back I can imagine my Beloved in Heaven almost in tears laughing so hard at my impatience and constant inquiries. He never became anger, frustrated or tired of my antics. He knew I had a lesson to learn in patience and He was patient teaching it to me.

Do not think it is easier now that I am a maturer Christian (we are never mature because mature means we have gone as far as is necessary to go which will not occur until we have been in Heaven for a while) because Jehovah will test our patience from time to time to let us know that we always have room to grow.

Patience is not only a virtue but also a attribute that keeps on expanding in our lives under the tutorship of the Holy Spirit. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Shalom (The Lord blesses with Peace) for blessing me with Your Divine peace to encourage my patience in Your timing, in Your way in every aspect of my life. I exalt Thee in the name of the Prince of Peace Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the gentle assurance of Jesus’ sweet love encompass you today and every day.

He Will Guide You.

                                      

But when He, the Spirit of Truth, comes, He will guide you. John 16:13 Holy Bible Amplified Version

The Holy Spirit is the best guide in every aspect of our lives. He has lead me through four uncharted territories in my decades long walk with Him. Each one was preparing me for the next.

Being a country boy I had no desire to move to the big city yet it was there He took me. While there He guided me to learn about natural medicine and first aid. As well He taught me about the Trinity and planted the seeds for our tree of love to grow and bare fruit. This knowledge held me in good steed while tree planting.

The next uncharted territory He led me to was tree planting. It was there that He taught me how to care for and about others. Most of my co-workers came from divorced families and they were unloved. I was the first one to ever love them and care about them. Again He also taught me about His majesty and grandeur there as well as His power, provision and protection.

This knowledge held me in good steed for the next uncharted territory He was leading me to which was teaching in Asia.

Most children there have never been loved nor respected by their parents. They had no one to confide in with their problems. The skills the Holy Spirit taught me in those tree planting camps was put to ample good use. The children felt loved, cared for, cared about, safe and secure in my class.

As well, the Holy Spirit was preparing me there for the next unknown territory. The majority of Asian I have met were narcissists. Under the Holy Spirits tutorship I learned how to properly deal with them.

This was preparing me for when I had to come home to be a live in care giver for my mom when she became disabled. My family was and is extremely narcissistic. The lessons learned in Asia has and still does hold me in good steed.

During the course of these travels I have learned to have more and more confidence and security in the Holy Spirits guidance.

I do not know where the next unknown territory is or if there is any more but I know the One, oh so very well, who will be guiding me is worthy of my complete and total trust.

“I know not the way God leads me, but well do I know my Guide.” Martin Luther

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Rohi ( Jesus is our Divine Shepherd ) for blessing me with the Holy Spirit as my guide throughout all of my life. I praise You in Your awesome name. Amen.

May the gentle assurance of Jesus’ sweet love encompass you today and every day.

The Christian Creed P L O

                                     

 “You will pray to Him, and He will hear you, And you will pay your vows. Job 22:27 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Why do you ask if you do not desire to obey?

So many folks turn to Jehovah to solve their problems. They want Him to tell them what they want to hear, not what they need to hear.

So we will say someone is asking Jehovah for help with their finances and He informs them to stop wasting money buying expensive coffee in coffee shops and they will not only have enough money to pay their bills but will also be able to save some as well. They ignore His advice and then cry because they cannot pay their bills and ask why He has not helped them.

It is plain stupidity.

If you really wish for Jehovah to help in your life you must alter it in the manner in which He guides you or your are wasting your time as well as His.

“We must alter our lives in order to alter our hearts, for it is impossible to live one way and pray another.” — William Law

Pray We must pray for wisdom in regards to our problem

Listen We must listen to His voice

Obey We must have faith in Him and obey His guidance, even when it does not agree with what our desires are or if it does not make sense to us. Following this method has greatly improved my life in every aspect, mental, physical and spiritual. It will yours as well. I do not promise Jehovah does and He has 100 % success rate.

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Hamelech ( Jesus my Lord King ) for the wonderful privileged of obeying my Kings instructions because I know You love me and only want the best for me. I exalt You in Your magnificent name. Amen.

May the gentle assurance of Jesus’ sweet love encompass you today and every day.

Cling to Him.

                                    

Trust and take refuge in the Lord! [Be confident in Him, cling to Him, rely on His word!] Psalm 115:9 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Have you ever been out hiking and are hit with a monster storm with little or no warning?

When I was hiking a trail in the west coast of Canada on a section that was one the shore of the ocean a huge storm hit with little warning. I barely had time to crawl into a cave atop this huge rock. All night the waves smashed against that rock but the water never reached more than the lip of the cave. If the waves had of come thundering in there I would have been crushed to death instantly. There was a feeling of peace and that everything was going to be alright. I did not know it then but that was the voice of the Holy Spirit comforting and assuring me. Consequently there was a blessed great sleep after a hard days hiking while the storm raged outside of that cave.

It is a lesson I pray shall never be forgotten.

So too it is when the storms of life come crashing in on us and it feels as if we are doomed for total destruction. No one can or will help us. Our money cannot help us. Our intelligence cannot help us.

Why is it then and only then that so many wait until then to call upon Jehovah for help?

We as Christians all go through that experience when we are babies but the more experience we have with our Beloved Father in Heaven the more we should confide in Him and have total trust in Him. I know I have and it has brought a lot of peace, wisdom and strength to face those storms. I cling to Him like a frightened child clings to an adult they love and trust and He never lets me down.

Whatever your heart clings to and confides in, that is really your God.” Martin Luther

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Emunah (God is faithful) for always being faithful towards Your beloved child in every aspect of my life. I exalt You in the name of Your most faithful Son Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the gentle assurance of Jesus’ sweet love encompass you today and every day.

I Have Placed In.

                                 

 For I have taken all this to heart, exploring and examining it all, how the righteous (those in right standing with God) and the wise and their deeds are in the hands of God. Ecclesiastes 9: 1 Holy Bible Amplified Version

I have lived the good life in worldly standards and had it all taken from me. It was devastating.

It took many decades to learn that the blessings from Jehovah, which are spiritual, are indeed the greatest wealth of all. They have held me in good steed through many storms in life. They have guided me away from disasters. They have enriched me with a close loving relationship with Jehovah, Jesus and the Holy Spirit.

Not only do I still possess them but the Lord is continually expanding them. They are truly the greatest wealth of all.

“I have held many things in my hands, and I have lost them all; but whatever I have placed in God’s hands, that I still possess.” Martin Luther

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireh ( God provides ) for always abundantly providing for me. I exalt You in the name of Your greatest provision for salvation Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the gentle assurance of Jesus’ sweet love encompass you today and every day.

Talking to a Wall.

 

                                      

A fool has no delight in understanding, But in expressing his own heart. Proverbs 18:2 New King James Version

I have talked with many fools ( most of whom are liberals) and have found they base their debate upon opinion or upon research that is not only false but is slanted towards what they want to hear. When I present to them facts which cannot be disputed they begin shouting. The reason for this is because they are trying to drown out the truth. They refuse to listen, it is like talking to a wall.

A important lesson in it all was not to waste my time with them. I merely inform them that they are entitled to their opinion but it cannot stand firm against my facts. If you chose to live the life of a fool that is your choice. And then, I just walk away. It is not said in a derogatory manner just a firm stance on the truth.

I am not interested in your opinion, just the facts. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah KalEl (voice of God) for blessing me that You have spoken the word of truth into my heart and mind. I extol Thee in the name of He who is the truth of salvation Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the gentle assurance of Jesus’ sweet love encompass you today and every day.
