We Must Do It for the Right Reason.

loving to each other

 Give, and it will be given to you. They will pour into your lap a good measure—pressed down, shaken together, and running over [with no space left for more]. For with the standard of measurement you use [when you do good to others], it will be measured to you in return.” Luke 6:38 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Many folks read this and use it to try to manipulate Jehovah. They foolishly believe if they give a dollar to a cause of their choosing they can demand Jehovah give them back a thousand.

First off you must pray for direction in where to give wisely and that wisdom come from Jehovah.

So say you give to a street bum that is going to use the money to buy drugs or booze. What a waste of money. The same is to be said for theses scammers that give heart jerking scenes on TV like giving to help others in poor countries when most of the money will go to a CEO who makes millions off of suckers.

On the other hand say the Holy Spirit guides you to a place where you meet someone who needs support to meet their daily needs. That is a wise use of money. And, yes that has happened to me on more than one occasion.

Secondly, we must desire to give as an act of love for others rather than love for self.

So instead of giving a little expecting Jehovah to give you a lot so you can go on a cruise it not of the right reason and will be rejected by Jehovah. Rather, when seeing an opportunity presented by The Holy Spirit to give to someone who needs help and deserves it- is appreciative of it and will use it wisely, we give with a desire to help rather that expect a reward from Jehovah.

Finally, when we give it will come natural to give praise to the Lord for the opportunity He gave you to do good.

From my experience, the Lords blessing will come upon you in an unexpected way, in an unexpected time so there is no doubt it is a gift from Him. This causes us to love Him and praise Him all the more.

We must give, but, we must do it for the right reason. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah El Deah (God of knowledge) for blessing me with answering my requests (prayers) for Your wisdom in where to joyfully donate to causes in which You find worthy so as to invest the finances wisely. I praise You in the name of He who invested His blood for us to have a eternal home in Heaven Jesus Christ. Amen

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

We Should Rejoice That

God loves each of

How  also are Your thoughts to me, O God! Psalm 139:17 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Imagine that, the God of the universe has constant thoughts of how precious we are to Him.

He is not like some fairy tale santa claus who will only bring us gifts if we are nice (which is like bribery) once a year. Gifts we will soon grow bored with a forget them.

Jehovahs thoughts are how much He loves us. Because He loves us so tremendously He only wants what is best for us. It is therefore in our best interests to be obedient to His guidance. We should rejoice that we have such an amazing loving God.  

Rejoice in the Lord always [delight, take pleasure in Him] Philippians 4:4 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireh ( God provides ) for always providing just the right amount for me. Not too much so I become a lazy, arrogant glutton. Not too little that I undertake disastrous endeavours. The added benefit of this is that by depending upon You I see Your loving gracious hand in my life that would not be possible any other way. This fills me with awe, love, respect and admiration for You. I praise You in the name of He whose blood made this Heavenly relationship possible Jesus Christ. Amen

Christ blesses us with love, peace and joy. May you be blessed with many opportunities to share these with others today.

For All Live in Family Care Givers

CHRISTS STRENGTH

 Speaking not only from my own experience but from listening to those  who are caring for their elder parents they receive nothing but continuous slaps in the face for their loving care. Then when many of the adult children are mentally and physically exhausted and put the parents into a seniors home the parents cry baby and try to blame the children all the while refusing to take responsibility for their own actions. Add to that that the care givers seldom receive any help from their siblings who are usually leeches. The only time they call the parent is when they want money from them.

It seems to me that the most ungrateful folks are the ones that need the help the most yet abuse those who are helping them. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Although this may seem like a curse it is in reality a blessing.

Because, it is in our hard times that we grow the closest to Jehovah and develop the deepest of love, respect and appreciation for Him. Here are some words of encouragement and strength from our loving, caring Father when we feel beaten down by the ungrateful abusive behaviour of those we are helping.

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

Let us not grow weary or become discouraged in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap, if we do not give in. Galatians 6:9 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

“God never made a promise that was too good to be true.” — Dwight L. Moody

Therefore, those who are ill-treated and suffer in accordance with the will of God must [continue to] do right and commit their souls [for safe-keeping] to the faithful Creator. 1 Peter 4:19 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

 “Where God’s finger points, there God’s hand will make a way.”

Prayer: Oh Jehovah ‘Immeku (The Lord Is With You) I cannot praise You enough for Your wonderful love, strength, provision, comfort, healing, wisdom and encouragement to continue on being obedient unto Your command;If a widow has children or grandchildren, these should learn first of all to put their religion into practice by caring for their own family and so repaying their parents and grandparents, for this is pleasing to God. 1 Timothy 5:4 Holy Bible, New International Version. Please comfort those who, because of the selfishness, brutish behaviour and contempt of their aged parents or grand parents towards the care givers they cannot endure the contemptuous behaviour any more and have to put them in a seniors home. Do not allow the wicked parents or grand parents to put a guilt trip on the adult children. It is their own fault they are where they are. I exalt You and humbly beseech You in the name of He who is loving and the Supreme Judge Jesus Christ. Amen

May Christ bless you with love, joy and peace today and every day.

No You Can Not.

  THE DEVIOUS REWARD.JPG

For certain people have crept in unnoticed [just as if they were sneaking in by a side door]. They are ungodly persons whose condemnation was predicted long ago, for they distort the grace of our God into decadence and immoral freedom [viewing it as an opportunity to do whatever they want], and deny and disown our only Master and Lord, Jesus Christ .Jude 1:4  The Holy Bible Amplified Version

There are some that teach that because we are saved by grace we can go out and do what ever we desire. “Hey Jesus loves me and by His grace my sins are forgiven so I can do whatever I desire and it’s okay because He forgives me.” That is perhaps one of satans biggest lies. We are in a Holy family and there are rules of conduct that must be followed.                                                      

For the [remarkable, undeserved] grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men. It teaches us to reject ungodliness and worldly (immoral) desires, and to live sensible, upright, and godly lives [lives with a purpose that reflect spiritual maturity] in this present age. Titus 2:11-12 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Yes it was by Christ’s blood on the cross that we gain salvation but that does not permit us to have carte blanch on sin. Once we are a member of His Divine family there are rules to be obeyed. Refuse to obey them at your own peril. Indeed, if you refuse to be obedient unto the Holy Spirits guidance you have forfeited your salvation because you have not accepted Christ as your true Savior.

Jesus loves me but if I love Him, I will be obedient to Him. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Kal El (voice of God) for teaching me the truth and blessing me with the strength and fortitude to live a righteous life in Your eyes, not the worlds. I praise You in the name of the Word of Truth Jesus Christ. Amen

May the light of Christs love shine brightly in your heart today and every day

To You, O Lord

GODS DELIGHTS

 

To You, O Lord, I lift up my soul.
O my God, in You I [have unwavering] trust [and I rely on You with steadfast confidence],
Do not let me be ashamed
or my hope in You be disappointed;
Do not let my enemies triumph over me.
Indeed, none of those who [expectantly] wait for You will be ashamed;
Those who turn away from what is right
and deal treacherously without cause will be ashamed (humiliated, embarrassed). Let me know Your ways, O Lord; Teach me Your paths. Guide me in Your truth and teach me, For You are the God of my salvation; For You [and only You] I wait [expectantly] all the day long.
Remember, O Lord, Your [tender] compassion and Your loving kindnesses, For they have been from of old.
Do not remember the sins of my youth or my transgressions;
According to Your loving kindness remember me, For Your goodness’ sake, O Lord. Good and upright is the Lord;
Therefore He instructs sinners in the way. He leads the humble in justice, And He teaches the humble His way.
All the paths of the Lord are loving kindness and goodness and truth and faithfulness To those who keep His covenant and His testimonies.
For Your name’s sake, O Lord, Pardon my wickedness and my guilt, for they are great. Who is the man who fears the Lord [with awe-inspired reverence and worships Him with submissive wonder]? He will teach him [through His word] in the way he should choose. His soul will dwell in prosperity and goodness, And his descendants will inherit the land.
The secret [of the wise counsel] of the Lord is for those who fear Him, And He will let them know His covenant and reveal to them [through His word] its [deep, inner] meaning.
My eyes are continually toward the Lord, For He will bring my feet out of the net. Turn to me [Lord] and be gracious to me, For I am alone and afflicted. The troubles of my heart are multiplied; Bring me out of my distresses. Look upon my affliction and my trouble, And forgive all my sins.
Look upon my enemies, for they are many; They hate me with cruel and violent hatred. Guard my soul and rescue me; Do not let me be ashamed or disappointed, For I have taken refuge in You. Let integrity and uprightness protect me, For I wait [expectantly] for You. Psalm 25 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

This pretty much describes my attitude and behaviour towards my all knowing, all delivering, all encouraging, all loving all forgiving incredible Heavenly Father, Supreme King and Wise Teacher.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Heseh (God is love) for being so loving towards me in that You always supply me with the right amount of what I need, when I need it. You are so amazing. I exalt You in the great name of He who always supplied His disciples Jesus Christ. Amen

The gift of love, the gift of joy, the gift of peace, these are the greatest gifts that can be given. They are given in abundance to all those in Christs family by our Heavenly loving  Father. May you be blessed with plentiful opportunities to share these with those around you today.

I Pray for Every Morning

speaking

 But no one can tame the human tongue; it is a restless evil [undisciplined, unstable], full of deadly poison. James 3:8 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

One of the most important things I pray for every morning is for patience to deal with difficult folks. Wisdom, to know when to speak and when to shut up. When it is time to speak, bless me with the right words to say and the right manner and time to say them in. Wisdom to know when it is best to leave the situation because the other soul is just baiting me into a useless fight, which is a perverted hobby for them.

And you know what?

My life has a lot less stress and a lot more peace since praying these and having Jehovah bless me with granting them unto me every day.

I thank Him every time He intervenes with that soft whisper to shut my mouth, get out of there or to speak softly to the other soul.

“We can never hear the warning often enough. The tongue may be small, but oh so deadly when not under the sanctifying grace of God.” — Lin Pearson

Prayer: Oh my loving Jehovah Hoshe’ah ( The Lord Saves ) please send the Holy Spirit to watch over my mouth and save me from spewing forth filth for which I shall pay a heavy price for later. I humbly request this in the name of He whose words were only loving and healing Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Should Magnify Our

WORK IN PROGRESS

For our momentary, light distress [this passing trouble] is producing for us an eternal weight of glory [a fullness] beyond all measure [surpassing all comparisons, a transcendent splendor and an endless blessedness]! 2 Corinthians 4:17 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Sometimes the only way to learn is through the hard times.

In the easy times we tend to take things more lightly, especially concerning our obedience to Jehovah.

My life is a testimony to that.

It is in the hard times I learned the most and grew the most. They definitely were not enjoyable but I praise Jehovah for putting through them.

One good aspect of this type of learning is our appreciation for our Heavenly Teacher for the manner in which He teaches us the lesson. He does so in a manner in which the lesson will never be forgotten.

The other is that we more mature Christians use these lessons to pass on to those not as mature as us, hopefully to prevent them from making the same errors as us. For those going through the lessons, it encourages them to submit to the teachers instructions.

“Affliction comes to the believer not to make him sad, but sober; not to make him sorry, but wise. Even as the plow enriches the field so that the seed is multiplied a thousandfold, so affliction should magnify our joy and increase our spiritual harvest.” — Henry Ward Beecher

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ‘Uzam (The Lord is our Strength in Trouble) for blessing me with so many afflictions. Although they were not enjoyable at the times, they were necessary to mature me in my walk towards You in Heaven. Thank you for blessing me with the strength to not only endure them but to prosper because of them. I praise You in the name of He who endure the worse affliction of all for me 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
