Prayer Helps Us to Respond.

when-i-pray

 When I am afraid,I will put my trust and faith in You. In God, whose word I praise;In God I have put my trust; I shall not fear. Psalms 56: 3-4 Holy Bible Amplified Version

We all encounter trials and tribulations, sorrows and snares.

I have experienced such intense tribulation it was difficult sleeping, eating and functioning in society. Nothing helped me, not words from friends or councilors, nor self help books. It was only when I got down on my knees and in deep anguish cried out to Jehovah that He blessed me with an all encompassing love which strengthened me and stilled my heart with peace. The fear slowly ebbed away like darkness with the rising sun. There was no fear just peace and assurance of Jehovahs firm but gentle hand upon my life. I trusted Him and had faith in Him. He did not let me down, He never does. He filled me with confidence and an eagerness to attack and destroy the troubles. This process has been repeated every time trial and tribulation, sorrow and snares come my way.

When trouble comes my way I get down on my knees and pray. Joseph- Anthony; Green

Christian, no matter what you are enduring now get down on your knees and pray with all your heart. Jehovah loves you, He cares about you and longs to comfort you, fill you with peace, love, strength and confidence. But, first, you must ask for His divine intervention and then be obedient unto His counsel if you are to experience assured victory.

Prayer helps us to respond to misfortune with courage, to react with confidence and to rebound with enthusiasm. –William Arthur Ward

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Immanuel (God is with us) that You are always there, that You always care, that You bless me with strength, wisdom, peace, assurance and love whenever trouble great and small come crushing down upon me. I exalt The in the name of He who calmed the violent storm for His loved disciples Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

It is We Not Me.

christs-family

 Then I said to them, “You see the bad situation that we are in—how Jerusalem is desolate and lies in ruins and its gates have been burned with fire. Come, and let us rebuild the wall of Jerusalem, so that we will no longer be a disgrace.” Nehemiah 2:17 Holy Bible Amplified Version

It is we not me.

Those that stand alone fall, those that stand together will with stand the strongest storms. Joseph- Anthony: Green

This is an important ingredient on your road to recovery. We all have destructive addictions. We cannot resolve them on our own, we need help. Therefore, it is we as in Jehovah and you not me that will provide the resolution.

How many of us make silly New Years Resolutions to quit these habits only to crash and burn when they try to accomplish it on their own?

How many succeed when they have councilors and trainers helping them?

The way to determine who is the best trainer and or councilor for you is to take it to Jehovah in prayer and be obedient unto His wise guidance. After all, who know you better the creator or the creation?

We will always fail in our attempts to live a Holy life because we are all imperfect.

Satan will use this opportunity to tear you down in an attempt to make you feel unworthy of being a member of Jehovah’s Holy family.

All is not lost.

Christ will never desert you. He will provide a way of restitution unto Him.

That , again , is why we need to surround ourselves with Godly councilors when we fall. They will not only help us deal with the reason for the fall but also help us to stand upon the Holy rock of Christ.

The wise will hear and increase their learning, And the person of understanding will acquire wise counsel and the skill [to steer his course wisely and lead others to the truth]. Proverbs 1:5 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Jireh (God is our Provider) for blessing me with wise councilors and trainers for my daily walk with You. They lead me away from catastrophes and towards Heavenly success towards my loving relationship with You and the Divine service unto You that You have chosen for me to take in my life dedicated unto You. I exalt You for this treasure in the name of the greatest provider Jesus Christ. Amen

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

It is Too Heavy

 

DELIVERANCE COMES FROM THE LORD

Cast your burden on the Lord [release it] and He will sustain and uphold you. Psalm 55:22 Holy Bible Amplified Version

We all encounter problems in our lives.

Too many of us falsely believe that we are weak if we cannot solve these challenges on our own ( especially men ).

Indeed in many countries it is considered a shame and disgrace to even admit you have a problem.

It is too heavy for you to carry on your own shoulders. That is where we Christians are blessed with an advantage over those of the world.

How many folks go to a psychiatrist with their problems only to be prescribed drugs , which of course only makes the problem worse. Look at all those who commit hienious offenses like mass murderers only to find out they were diagnosed with mental problems and were only given drugs. I have seen it numerous times in big cites.

How many go to psychiatrists only to be told it is not your fault but societies or your families while being absolved of their responsibility?

To sustain means to give support as does uphold.

The best councilor to go to is of course Jehovah. He is all wise and will help you the best and support you though the difficult experience. That will probably mean He will guide you to Christian councilors.

I have been blessed with this guidance and it was the most beneficial to me.

When you encounter problems in your life and we all will continually experience these plagues until Christ takes us to our Heavenly home ,you have a choice ; one try to deal with it on your own , good luck with that one two go to those in the world with limited knowledge , which usually is useless from those I have seen go that route or go to the best source form wisdom ,strength and healing Jehovah God Almighty. That is the most successful route I have taken as well as many others I have encountered.

Jehovah or the world choose wisely. Your life depends upon it. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Thank you YAHWEH- Ropheka : “The Lord Who Heals for blessing me with Your gently loving healing whenever I encounter any and all problems in my life whether it be through Your Divine will or whether it be through Your Divine providence to Christian guidance councilors and others that will assist me. I extol Thee in the name of the best Healer of them all Jesus Christ. Amen

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

He Will Save You.

HAVE COURAGE

 Say to those with an anxious and panic-stricken heart, “Be strong, fear not! He will save you.” Isaiah 35:4 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Anxious is described as feeling or showing uncomfortable feelings of uncertainty.

We have all experienced anxiousness in our lives.

The difference between Christians and those of the world is that they have no where to turn to to provide them with concrete assurances that those they go to for help are in control and to fill them with peace.

We as Christians have the confidence in Jehovah who controls everything.

When we are obedient unto His guidance He will sooth out fears, comfort us and guide us to the best path to take out of the dark forest of uncertainty that envelopes us in whatever the circumstance is that is causing us apprehension.

Panic is defined as the emotion experienced in the presence or threat of danger.

Again those who are of the world panic when disaster is looming or is striking them. Those of us who belong unto Christ have His assurance that He will either walk through the fire with us like He did with  Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego.

He answered, “Look! I see four men untied, walking around in the midst of the fire, and they are not hurt! And the appearance of the fourth is like a son of the gods!”  Then Nebuchadnezzar approached the door of the blazing furnace and said, “Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego, servants of the Most High God, come out [of there]! Come here!” Then Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego came out of the midst of the fire. The satraps, the prefects, the governors and the king’s counselors gathered around them and saw that in regard to these men the fire had no effect on their bodies — their hair was not singed, their clothes were not scorched or damaged, even the smell of smoke was not on them Daniel 3:25-27 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Or , He will deliver us from the storm like He did His disciples.

But as they were sailing, He fell asleep. And a fierce gale of wind swept down [ as if through a wind tunnel ] on the lake, and they began to be swamped, and were in great danger. 24 They came to Jesus and woke Him, saying, “Master, Master, we are about to die!” He got up and rebuked the wind and the raging, violent waves, and they ceased, and it became calm [a perfect peacefulness]. Luke 8:23-25 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Those were real events Christian and are available unto You Jehovahs cherished child when you , in faith , call out unto Him.

I know , I have been through many furnaces and raging storms with Him in our walk towards the Heavenly home He has prepared for me.

“Knowing that I am not the one in control gives great encouragement. Knowing the One who is in control is everything.” — Alexander Michael

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-‘Immeku (The Lord Is With You) for always being there with me through my numerous trials and tribulations , sorrows and snares . Through all my pain and hardships . I could not have made it without Your comforting , reassuring and strengthening presence. I exalt You in the name of He who calmed the stroms of His disciples storms Jesus Christ . Amen

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

Is Your Head Hurting?

RESTLESS HEART

 Why are you in despair, O my soul? And why are you restless and disturbed within me?
Hope in God
and wait expectantly for Him. Psalm 42:5 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Despair is the state of being discouraged.

Is your head hurting from walking into walls ? You know the feeling , like no matter what you try it is like walking into a wall. You are pounding the pavement looking for employment yet it seems as if every door is closed. You have tried all kinds of different medical treatment yet your ailment is getting worse. Of course there is the wonderful experience of raising teenagers and they refuse to listen to you ( that has been going on for eons. ) .

The list could continue for a long time couldn’t it ?

To hope for something is to believe in the future occurrence of (something).

We are children of the Supreme God , children. Take hope that He loves you and because He loves you He will come to your aid in Him time in His way. His answer may not be what you desire however He is far more wiser than you. As a consequence He knows what is best for you far better that you do.

I know, there have been many times when I desired something in my life and passionately prayed for our Beloveds blessing to have it come to fruition. He did not. At the time I was bitterly disappointed. In reflection I see the wise providence of His hand that if He had of granted me my desire it would have been a disaster.

On the other hand there have been event that I fervently prayed for every day for decades. Finally He blessed me that they blossomed into reality. Again I understand why it took Him so long to grant my request and am joyously grateful for His blessings.

“Every tomorrow has two handles. We can take hold of it with the handle of anxiety or the handle of faith.” – Henry Ward Beecher

Prayer : Thank you Jehovah-Jireh (God is our Provider) for Your Divine abundant assistance throughout my life. I thank you that You refused some requests that would have led to certain disaster and for answering those that bring about joyous events that will glorify You. I exuberantly praise You in the name He whose sacrifice answered my call for salvation Jesus Christ. Amen

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

We Are at War.

HAVE COURAGE

For though we walk in the flesh [as mortal men], we are not carrying on our [spiritual] warfare according to the flesh and using the weapons of man. The weapons of our warfare are not physical [weapons of flesh and blood]. Our weapons are divinely powerful for the destruction of fortresses. 2 Corinthians 10:3-4 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Make no mistake about it Christian, we are at war. Our enemy is stronger than we are, smarter than we are and more numerous that we are.

All is lost then, you say.

No, we have complete victory in our grasp every time the enemy attacks. Our weapons are few but guaranteed to defeat the foe every time.

Number one: when the evil one or his minions come with a direct attack our Heavenly Father sends in reinforcements.

For He will command His angels in regard to you, To protect and defend and guard you in all your ways [of obedience and service]. Psalm 91:11 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Who do you think will win that battle?

He and his goonies are far smarter the we but we have a weapon to defeat them every time. Do not believe you battle them and win for then defeat is certain.

It is a wise man that trusts Jehovah, it is a foolish man that depends upon himself. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Do not let mercy and kindness and truth leave you [instead let these qualities define you]; Bind them [securely] around your neck, Write them on the tablet of your heart. Proverbs 3:3 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Know your Bible, eat its words, carry it with you, write down victory verses and be prepared to use them. Then satan and his goons will flee from you. Joseph- Anthony: Green

The Lord is near to all who call on Him, To all who call on Him in truth (without guile). Psalm 145:18 Amplified Bible

Satan will work on your conscience and try to convict you of pass sins.

Do not listen to him but instead listen to our Heavenly Father.

Thanks be it is by Christs blood when we repent that we are acquitted of our sins. Thanks be to God, who gives us the victory [as conquerors] through our Lord Jesus Christ. 1 Corinthians 15:57 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Satan will try to defeat us with soul and spiritual destructive habits. Clasp solidly unto Christs power to defeat this weakling.

No temptation [regardless of its source] has overtaken or enticed you that is not common to human experience [nor is any temptation unusual or beyond human resistance]; but God is faithful [to His word—He is compassionate and trustworthy], and He will not let you be tempted beyond your ability [to resist], but along with the temptation He [has in the past and is now and] will [always] provide the way out as well, so that you will be able to endure it [without yielding, and will overcome temptation with joy]. 1 Corinthians 10:13 Holy Bible Amplified Bible

“We’re in spiritual combat – cosmic combat for the heart and soul of humankind.” — Chuck Colson

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Gador Milchamah ( The Lord is Mighty in Battle) for blessing me with Your Heavenly protection whenever I am being attacked by demonic forces. Thank you for providing with Your Divine word to defeat the demons when they come for battle. I praise You in the name of the King of the Heavenly armies Jesus Christ . Amen

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

You Cover and Shelter Them

DANCE FOR JOY

 But let all who take refuge and put their trust in You rejoice, Let them ever sing for joy; Because You cover and shelter them, Let those who love Your name be joyful and exult in You. Psalms 5: 11 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Refuge is defined as a shelter or protection from danger or distress. We as children of Jehovah have free access when ever it is needed under His almighty protection from Satan and his minions.

That does not mean we will not under go times of trial and tribulation, sorrow and snares. These are required of every child to grow strong in our walk with Christ in our ability to with stand them and to have confidence in Divine intervention when they are too strong for us to withstand. The result of this is to be filled with love , admiration and joy towards our awesome God. We cannot but in exhalation sing songs of love and joy as a gift of gratitude towards our Heavenly Beloved.

Jesus is moved to happiness every time He sees that you appreciate what He has done for you. –Ole Hallesby

Prayer: I extol You oh Jehovah-Gador Milchamah ( The Lord is Mighty in Battle ) for the uncountable times You have come to my aid and rescued me from certain destruction the oh so many times when Satan or his minions have unmercifully attacked a weak soul like me with Your ultimate power. I thank You for the countless times You have allowed me to walk through the fire and You were there with me in my each and every time. I exalt You in the name of He who never deserted His disciples Jesus Christ . Amen .

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