A closer walk with our beloved friend.

You Thought Nobody was Noticing.


 “So whenever you give to the poor and do acts of kindness, do not blow a trumpet before you [to advertise it], as the hypocrites do [like actors acting out a role] in the synagogues and in the streets, so that they may be honored and recognized and praised by men. I assure you and most solemnly say to you, they[already] have their reward in full.  But when you give to the poor and do acts of kindness, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing [give in complete secrecy], so that your charitable acts will be done in secret; and your Father who sees[what is done] in secret will reward you. Matthew 6:1-4 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

We see it on TV all the time. There is an activity to support a local charity and the TV crew gets there, there is a swarm of folks wanting to get on TV to pump up their ego. How many times do folks go around bragging about their “ good deeds”?

I tell you true, as a matter of fact it is not I but Jehovah that tells you, that they recieve their rewards here and now.

It means nothing to Jehovah.

So, when you get to Heavens Gate and are bragging about all of your “good deeds” you have done, Christ will ask you one question: “Did you do them for your glory or for mine?” If it is for your glory they are worthless to Jesus.

“A spiritual man delights not to see himself honored, but to see his Lord promoted.” A. W. Tozer

Actually I hate being in the spotlight.

It is more appealing to just go along and help out where I can, when I can with no fan fare. There have been times when I was asked to go to reward dinners and refused. Everyone was shocked because I refused to receive any public recognition. If they only knew why.

I believe it is that way with all who serve Christ because we are humble . Because we are secure in who we are in Christ we tend to shy away from the spot light.

Don’t be discouraged when your work seem unnoticed. Man applauds for what’s in the spotlight, but God applauds the faithfulness that people often overlook. Heaven’s highlight reels will be full of those selfless acts of faith and service you thought nobody was noticing. Dave Willis

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah El Roi. You are the God who sees. For blessing me with numerous opportunities to exhibit Your love to others with my actions. It makes my heart dance for joy to know I have given pleasure to the one I love the most. I exalt You through He who showed His love for me by His sacrifice on the cross Jesus Christ. 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

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
