A closer walk with our beloved friend.

You’re in Very Good Company.


Wait for and confidently expect the Lord; Be strong and let your heart take courage; Yes, wait for and confidently expect the Lord. Psalm 27:14 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Waiting is an exercise in patience and trust in the Lord.

Sometimes it takes a day, some times it takes months, sometimes it takes years and some times it takes decades for the Lord to complete His work.

It is not dependent upon the Lord how long it takes for fruition of prayers to occur.

It depends upon the right time and place and for the soul you are praying for to become receptive to the Lords call.

For me it took over twenty years for a certain prayer to come to completion.

Even now it still has not been fully answered but is progressing quite nicely. Now even when the prayer is not answered the way you desire it will still be answered.

“Joseph waited 15 years. Abraham waited 25 years. Moses waited 40 years. Jesus waited 30 years. If God is making you wait, you’re in very good company.” Anonymous

So say you are praying for a home in a nice neighborhood but all’s you get is something in the poor section of town. While there you are ministering to those in need. Upon reflection years later you realize that Jehovah chose the right place for you and you would not change places if the house in the nice neighborhood were to be offered to you for free.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireh ( God provides ) for not providing for me what I am not ready to receive.

Thank you for delivering when it is the proper time and the proper place.

I jubilantly praise You in the name of He who came at just the right time to save the world Jesus Christ. Amen

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

  1. Wonderfully said. Thank you.
    Patience is a virtue, too few have the tolerance to wait. But when applied it changes everything. And when God is at the helm miracles do happen, in His timetable. We just need to believe, not loose hope or our faith. There’s always a reason for its delay, as you have mentioned, the timing is not right but God knows when it’s appropriate, if at all. We must remember He sees way into our future.

    ‘Ye of little faith’ comes to mind, when one has doubts, it forfeits our initial prayer. We must believe it will happen and rest on God’s sovereignty.
    May our Lord continue to bless you richly.

  2. Prayer is powerful. Jesus Himself always found time to talk (pray) to Abba/our Heavenly Father. We get our strength from being connected, cause life sometimes drive’s our patience thin. Only through prayer do we receive His grace that calms our nerves (our soul) to proceed with what needs to be done. God bless 🙂

  3. So true, Joseph son of Jehovah.

    🙂 Blessings always.

  4. I was just looking at this verse a few minutes ago! This was a very timely read, Joseph – thank you.

  5. Thanks for your like of my post on Yom Kippur; you are very kind.

  6. Thank you for reminding me that I need to be patient in regard to Christ coming into the life of someone I have been praying for. It has been several years now but someday I hope to see my prayers answered.
