Bless Me to Enable Me To

But to you who are willing to listen, I say, love your enemies! Do good to those who hate you. Bless those who curse you. Pray for those who hurt you. Luke 6:27-28 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Are you willing to?

It is our natural inclination to close our ears to words we do not wish to listen to.

Are you willing to suppress that and listen to The Holy Spirits voice as He convicts you?

It is our natural inclination to hate our enemies and make them suffer as much as we can.

Are you willing to love them?

That is not the mushy nonsense you see in movies or on TV.

It is an effort that can only be accomplished by surrendering to the power of The Holy Spirit. It does not mean that you condone nor tolerate abusive behaviour. If you love them you will help them to understand why they are abusive ( many times it is because of abuse they have suffered and have not been healed of ) and help them get counselling. If you love them you will not empower them by allowing this behaviour to continue but will allow them to suffer the consequences of their actions.

Purge yourself of toxic folks less their poison kills your love and you are rewarded with nothing but misery in return. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Are you willing to pray for Jehovah to open your eyes to the problem and to the solution ( including the fact that the problem may not be them but may be you ).

When others hate us it is natural to hate them back.

Are you willing to love your enemies by understanding why they hate you and seek reconciliation in the relationship. If they refuse are you willing to love them enough to behave in a respectful manner towards them. Are you willing to pray for Jehovah to open your eyes to the problem and to the solution ( including the fact that the problem may not be them but may be you ).

“The Bible tells us to love our neighbours, and also to love our enemies; probably because they are generally the same people.” — G. K. Chesterton Prayer:

Please Jehovah ELOHIM YAKOL (God, the Most Able 2 Corinthians 9:8 ) bless me to enable me to conduct myself towards difficult folks in the noble manner in which Your gracious son Jesus Christ did. I wish not just for peace in this relationship but to use this situation to glorify You and to bring the little lost sheep into Your Heavenly fold. Please bless me with the strength and healing of ostracizing myself from toxic folks until they accept that their behaviour is not loving nor acceptable.

It is in the name of He who exemplified Christian behaviour towards others, Jesus Christ, that I humbly beseech You. Amen

May you always be receptive to and obedient to The Holy Spirits guidance in all of your relationships. Joseph a son of Jehovah

The gentleness of a

This High Priest of ours understands our weaknesses, for he faced all of the same testings we do, yet he did not sin. So let us come boldly to the throne of our gracious God. There we will receive his mercy, and we will find grace to help us when we need it most. Hebrews 4:15-16 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Prayer: Thank you kindly Jehovah Chatsahi (The Lord is my Strength Psalm 27:1 ) for walking amongst us so You understand the trials and temptations, the tribulations and sorrows we experience in our daily life.

As such, when I come to You seeking help You bless ME with: strength where I am weak and the opportunity to use this strength to help others. The mercy to forgive me when I succumb to my weakness and repent of them.

May I extend that to those who repent when they have wronged me. The gentleness of a loving friend to teach others how to be members of Jehovahs holy family when they are uneducated in the proper etiquette befitting such a noble family.

May I guide others to behave in such a regal manner.

I humbly implore You to grant this petition this in Your gracious name. Amen.

May you be blessed with copious amounts of tutoring at the Masters feet to enable you to be a grand example of a noble family and plenty of opportunities to use them.

Thank you Jehovah Jireh

You have done many good things for me, Lord, just as you promised. Psalm 119:65 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

This morning this verse jumped out at me and I knew Jehovah was going to be good to me but did not know they way how.

Today I had to buy a new computer. There is a tight budget so it was not expected to get a great quality one. Just good enough for mom to watch her shows on.

The Lord guided me to a store I do not normally go to.

Boy am I ever glad He did. The type of computer I was looking for was on sale with a superior brand. Because the packaging was damaged there was a nice discount on that as well. There was a discount on a warranty plan to boot so it is protected for three years instead of one.

Then there was a new camera. The same thing happened there as well.

In all, the savings amounted to about half price which meant saving hundreds of dollars.

Man oh man was Jehovah ever good to me today.

All praise and glory unto my gracious Heavenly Poppa, Jehovah for the amazing blessings He has bestowed upon me this day.

Jehovah loves to give. He is better than Santa Claus because He is real and He gives what we need, when we need it. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireh ( God provides Philippians 4:19 ) for blessing me with guidance and opportunities to score big time today. I glorify You in the name of the best gift You have blessed me with, Jesus Christ. Amen

May love be in your life, may hope be in your heart and may peace be in your every day walk with Christ. Joseph a son of Jehovah

The Next Time Someone Does

Do not lose your temper it only leads to harm. Psalm 37:8 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

The next time someone does or says something that I do not like I instantly stop! Then take a deep breath and pray to the Holy Spirit for wisdom, strength and grace on the proper manner in which to reply ( even if that means keeping my mouth shut ).

This will avoid a lot of hurt and regret by making the right choices at this point. This is the prayer that will be said:

Please Jesus, help me to look beyond what people say and see their heart.

Please forgive me for the times I have responded too quickly and foolishly in anger.

Please teach me to emulate You and be quick to listen, slow to speak and even slower to get angry.

It is in Your wise strong name I humbly, meekly ask this important request. Amen

May you be blessed with the gift of love, the gift of peace, the gift of joy. May you be blessed with numerous opportunities to share these gifts with others today.   Joseph a son of Jehovah

There is Only One Cure

 So don’t worry about tomorrow Matthew 6:34 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Every one of us has it: the worry thief.

We worry about family, we worry about our health, we worry about our country, we worry about our finances. The list just goes on and on.

And what is the result of this?

It destroys our mental and physical health.

There is only one cure and His name is Jesus. When we trust Jesus and place all of our cares into His loving hands He calms the storms around us.

He has done it for me. I used to be the worry wort king, not any more.

Why not give Him a try?

Jesus always provides the solutions for all of our problems. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Shammah (Ezekiel 48:35 The LORD Is There ) for always being there with me every step of my life. Even though I walked through unknown terrifying territory, as I learned to place my fragile hand in Yours, I learned to have confidence in You. This has blessed me with peace and assurance every day of my life and will all the way until reaching Your Heavenly home. I praise You in the name of He who walked through powerful storms and darkest nights with His beloved disciples, Jesus Christ. Amen

May Christ bless you with love, joy and peace today and every day. Joseph a son of Jehovah

I Have Learned the Hard Way

 O Lord, oppose those who oppose me. Fight those who fight against me. Psalm 35:1 The Holy Bible New Living Translation

Here is the Lords reply: The Lord himself will fight for you. Just stay calm.” Exodus 14:14 The Holy Bible New Living Translation

And, may I add, to be patient.

I have learned the hard way that when I go into battle against any foe they have the devil to help them draw up battle plans that will not only defeat me but to humiliate me as well.

When I humbly request the mighty Warrior Kings (Jesus Christ) assistance, He will always bring victory to me.

One way He does this is for me to step back and allow Him to bring humiliating defeat to the wicked.

Another manner in which He brings victory is by working in conjunction with me or by bringing other more experienced Christian warriors to aid me in the battle.

And finally, the other manner in which He brings victory to me is by giving me the battle plans and allowing me to fight the battle myself (which helps me become a more mature Christian so I can help other brothers and sisters when they face the same battle).

In every one of these battles the main ingredient for success is faith (which means trust) in His deliverance.

These battles are not only against flesh and blood opponents but against satan and his minions as well.

Faith is the greatest battle weapon at every Christians disposal. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Do not fear them, for it is the Lord your God who is fighting for you.’ Deuteronomy 3:22 The Holy Bible New Living Translation

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Maginnenu (Psalms 89:18 The LORD Our Defense) for blessing me with Your unconquerable defense when the wicked one attack me. Thank you that Your battle plans always bring victory. I praise You in the name of He who slam dunked satan Jesus Christ. Amen

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

In Every Aspect of My Life.

  “If any of your lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to him.” James 1:5 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

A STOUT HEART

Please my Beloved Heavenly King Jesus send the Holy Spirit to remind me that I am Your free will servant in every aspect of my life.                                                                                      Please bless me with a deep conviction to obey Your every command.                              Please bless me with many opportunities to spend quiet time with You every day.           Please send the Holy Spirit to teach me Your live according to Your way with wisdom, grace, and steadfast duty to You.                                                                                                          I humbly request this in Your majestic name. 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. Joseph a son of Jehovah

That was Going to Sink.

He saw that they were in serious trouble, rowing hard and struggling against the wind and waves. About three o’clock in the morning Jesus came toward them, walking on the water. He intended to go past them, but when they saw him walking on the water, they cried out in terror, thinking he was a ghost. They were all terrified when they saw him. But Jesus spoke to them at once. “Don’t be afraid,” he said. “Take courage! I am here!”  Then he climbed into the boat, and the wind stopped. Mark 6:45-52 The  Holy Bible, The New Living Testament Version

Do you notice Jesus was walking on the very water that was going to sink His Disciples?

He has dominion and power over everything, including your problems, worries and heartaches.

Did you notice when Jesus entered the boat the waves subsided.

So too will your worries, and heartache subside when Jesus enters into your situation. You must call upon Him in faith ( which means trust) that He will help you. Not only that, but, you must be obedient unto the advice He gives you in order to conquer the problem, worry or heartache.

Jesus is the best rescuer in the universe and beyond. Joseph a son of Jehovah

GOD IS IN THE FURNACE WITH US

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Yasha (Lord my Savior) Isaiah 49:26 that whenever I am obedient unto Your wise advice, You rescue me from all trouble, sorrows and snares.                                        I praise You in the name of He whose blood rescued me from eternal damnation Jesus Christ. Amen May you be blessed with peace and joy every day. Joseph a son of Jehovah

You can Make

 You can make many plans,   but the Lords purpose will prevail. Proverbs 19:21 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation  

Boy do I know this to be true.

In my early twenties I planned on living in a log cabin by a spring fed spring with great trout fishing in central Ontario on two acres of forested land. Events occurred where Jehovah had other plans for me and all those dreams faded like the morning fog on a hot day.

When doing medical missionary work in the Baja Mexico I met a Mexican woman and we fell in love. We intended upon getting married and buying a small house in the little town we were living in. Events occurred where Jehovah had other plans for me and all those dreams faded like the morning fog on a hot day.

While attending a Chinese church while doing missionary work (even though I was teaching English I was also teaching about Jesus to my students) I met a wonderful Christian Chinese woman. We fell in love. I intended upon becoming a landed immigrant and we were going to get married and buy an apartment (they do not have houses but apartments for the most part in China). Events occurred where Jehovah had other plans for me and all those dreams faded like the morning fog on a hot day. The same thing happened in two different cites I taught at.

Each of these events ripped my heart apart as my dreams vanished like waking from a dream. I felt crushed and as if my life was over. I was angry at Jehovah for allowing this.

Now, in my elder years, I can see His plans for me were very different than mine were.

Yes I still love those women and have fond memories of those times but am grateful for Jehovah for the plans He had for me. I firmly believe I shall meet those women I loved so dearly in Heavens home. If those events had of come to fruition I would never have served Him in the capacity He had intended and accomplished the tasks He had prepared for me to accomplish for Him. Because of this many would not have come to Jesus. I am grateful for this blessing He gave me through my obedience to Him.

We make our plans but Jehovah guides the way (even if it is in the opposite direction then we intend to go). Joseph a son of Jehovah

PATH

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireth (Genesis 22:14) – The LORD Shall Provide for always providing providence in my life to humble, loyally serve You. This is the greatest of honours of all. I thank you in the name of my Heavenly King which is my greatest delight to serve, Jesus Christ. Amen

Wishing you a house full of sunshine, hearts full of cheer and love that grows deeper each day of the year. Welsh blessing
