The Holy Spirit to Softly

Yet God has made everything beautiful for its own time. He has planted eternity in the human heart, but even so, people cannot see the whole scope of God’s work from beginning to end. Ecclesiastes 3:11 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Prayer: Please Jehovah ELOHIM YAKOL (God, the Most Able)2 Corinthians 9:8 ) bless me to be able to slow down and enjoy all the wonderful beauty You graciously provide for me each and every day.

It is so easy to get caught up in the rat race where everyone is rushing to do nothing as important as spending time enjoying Your creation You desire to share with us.

Please bless me with The Holy Spirit to softly speak with me and guide when and where to sit down and enjoy companionship with You in Your beautiful creation.

Please bless me with the opportunity to teach others the amazing blessing of spending time with You in Your creation. and slow our pace to prayerfully notice You in all transitions.

Help us to pause, and teach our children to pause, in order to reflect gratefully on all we have to fill our days.

I do not want to get to the end of my days and have the greatest regret of my life in not spending enough time with You or introducing others to You in Your wonderful creation.

I humbly request this in the name of He with whom I deeply love spending time in Your amazing garden, Jesus Christ. Amen

Anointed Preaching

Preaching is preaching only when the messenger is anointed with the Holy Spirit.

The apostle Paul tells how he arrived in the city of Corinth not dependent upon self-assurance, self-assertiveness, or a powerful personality, “but in demonstration of the Spirit and power” (1 Corinthians 2:4). In fact, Paul stresses the contrasting difference, “For I determined to know nothing among you except Jesus Christ, and Him crucified. And I was with you in weakness and in fear and in much trembling. And my message and my preaching were not in persuasive words of wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and power, that your faith should not rest on the wisdom of men, but on the power of God” (vv. 2-5).

Only the anointing of the Holy Spirit can make great preaching. Paul was concerned that nothing distract from the message of Jesus Christ and Him crucified. We live in a day that puts much of the emphasis on the attractiveness of the clever mind and entertainment.

Lloyd-Jones was a prophet when he wrote in Preaching and Preachers, that we take “so much time in producing atmosphere that there is no time for preaching in the atmosphere!” The church has turned to entertainment “as she has turned her back upon preaching.” The first century preachers “refused to pander to the tastes of their listeners.” They did just the opposite by admonishing, warning, rebuking, and reproving their listeners.

Over and over again in the book of Acts we are told of the preachers “being filled with the Holy Spirit.” They proclaimed their message as the Holy Spirit enabled them. Their message and deliverance were under the control of the Spirit. The Holy Spirit had baptized them when they first believed, and they had been filled on many occasions since then. One baptism, many fillings is still a Biblical truth for every preacher.

Biblical preaching is still the greatest instrument the church possesses. Every preacher should ask himself, “Do I have the anointing?” And “if not, why not?” Unless we have the sweet anointing of God’s Spirit we cannot bring the message of the Gospel with authority and power. “Am I anointed by the Holy Spirit?”

When we come with the holy anointing we will be as John the Baptist saying, “I must decrease; He just increase.” “I am a voice,” and nothing else.

How do we know when we have the anointing? The apostle Paul said, “Our gospel came not unto you in word only, but also in power, and in the Holy Spirit, and in much assurance” (1 Thessalonians 1:5). Who gives the assurance and the power? Only the Holy Spirit can do that.

But it is not just the preacher who needs to be under the control of the Holy Spirit. His desire is to fill ordinary people with extraordinary power. Every anointed preacher longs to have anointed listeners!

We need the continuous infilling of the Holy Spirit in our lives. Men will listen to what we speak, souls will be saved, and saints edified when we are “filled by the Holy Spirit.”

“It pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe” (1 Corinthians 1:21), and it still does.

The anointed preaching God uses is preaching that is centered in the Bible. It let’s the Bible tell its own eternal message. On the road to Emmaus the resurrected Jesus explained to two disciples that He was found in “all the Scriptures.” Thus Biblical preaching is Christ-centered. Since the sermon is biblical, and the Bible is Christ-centered, then a biblical sermon is filled with Jesus Christ. Because Christianity is Christ, all anointed preaching is centered on the person and atoning work of Jesus Christ (John 15:2616:14). The Spirit of God is at work whenever and wherever men are being pointed to Jesus Christ. Anointed preaching declares that God sent Jesus to die for our sins and calls men and women to turn and put their faith in Him for salvation (1 Cor. 15:3-6). We need bold, biblical, Christ-centered preaching in our day. That is anointed preaching.Selah!

For Our Loved Ones

Everyone tried to touch him, because healing power went out from him, and he healed everyone. Luke 6:19 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Prayer: Jehovah Rapha (God my healer Jeremiah 33:6 ) You are my healer

The greatest reflection of Your healing love was Jesus coming down from Heaven, not only to be present among us, but sacrifice His life for us on the cross.

Through His gift of grace, I am able to be healed beyond what is possible on this earth.

Sometimes, in the depths of the most agonizing emotional, physical or spiritual agony, You bless me with The Holy Spirit to softly, gently touch me and make me whole again.

I pray for healing in the depths of those I know who are suffering.

May I use this experience to share Your wonderful healing love with others.

I pray for healing from ailments and sickness that I can see and feel now, and from the sin that is hidden in me which infect my spirit. You know all, see all, and care for all in Your perfect love, You heal all.

I humbly praise you and request this in the name of the greatest Healer, Jesus Christ. Amen

Is Natural With God.

To reward good with good, and evil with evil, is natural with God. The retributive principle applies throughout: Christians as well as non-Christians will receive according to their works.JI Packer

All Things in Christ

Do you want your life to count to the greatest degree imaginable for the glory of God?

Years ago I decided that I wanted to live to the hilt of every situation that I believe to be the will of God. I want to experience the full measure of the blessings of Christ in my life and ministry.

Every spiritual blessing we enjoy comes in and through Jesus Christ. Every believer is an “heir of God and co-heir with Christ” (Romans 8:17).

The apostle Paul wrote Timothy, “Instruct those who are rich in this present world not to be conceited or to fix their hope on the uncertainty of riches, but on God, who richly supplies us with all things to enjoy” (1 Timothy 6:17).  Jesus said, “Seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you” (Matthew 6:33).

John Calvin expresses this provision in Christ beautifully: “If we seek salvation, we are taught by the very name of Jesus that it is ‘of him’ (1 Cor. 1:30). If we seek any other gifts of the Spirit, they will be found in His anointing. If we seek strength, it lies in His dominion; if purity, in His conception; if gentleness, it appears in His birth. For by His birth He was made like us in all respects (Heb. 2:17) that He might learn to feel our pain (cf. Heb. 5:2). If we seek redemption, it lies in His passion; if acquittal, in His condemnation; if remission of the curse, in His cross (Gal. 3:13); if satisfaction, in His sacrifice; if purification, in His blood; if reconciliation, in His descent into hell; if mortification of the flesh, in His tomb; if newness of life, in His resurrection; if immortality, in the same; if inheritance of the Heavenly Kingdom, in His entrance into heaven; if protection, if security, if abundant supply of all blessings, in His Kingdom; if untroubled expectation of judgment, in the power given to Him to judge. In short, since rich store of every kind of good abound in Him, let us drink our fill from this fountain and from no other” (Institutes of the Christian Religion, p. 527-28).

Are you available to God to do what He wants to do in and through you to be a blessing to a lost world? God will not bless you abundantly if you are self-centered, and much of our desire for God to bless us as Christians is purely selfish. Do I sincerely want God to bless me so that I may be a spiritual well-being to other people? To some people it might be revolutionary, but may I suggest that you think of your life as a means by which God can impart spiritual blessings to other Christians, and the lost world. God wants to bless us so that we might be a blessing to others.

Everything in the Christian life begins, continues and ends in Christ Jesus. C. S. Lewis once said the greatest heresies in the church are not the denials of Christian truth, but additions to it. It is what Lewis called “Christ and …” Christ and Islam, Christ and Buddha, Christ and works, Christ and humanism, etc. No, Christianity is Christ, alone. All true spiritual blessings come through Christ alone for God’s glory alone.

God is not looking for men and women who will trust in their abilities, but on His power and wisdom alone. “God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong. He chose the lowly things of this world and the despised things—and the things that are not—to nullify the things that are, so that no one may boast before Him. It is because of Him that you are in Christ Jesus, who has become for us wisdom from God—that is, our righteousness, holiness and redemption. Therefore, as it is written: ‘Let Him who boasts boast in the Lord’” (1 Cor. 1:27-31).

God is glorified when we make ourselves available to Him to bless us so we can be His blessing to others. Are you available to Him to do whatever He wants to do with you? That is what is required of you and me. There is no limit to the imagination what God can do through you if you are entirely surrendered to Him.Selah!

Little Eyes Upon You


There are little eyes upon you , and they’re watching night and day.
There are little ears that quickly take in everything you say.

There are little hands all eager to do everything you do.
And a little boy who is dreaming of the day he will be like you.
You are the little fellows idol , you are the wisest of the wise;
In his little mind about you no suspicions ever rise;
He believes in you devotedly , holds that all you say and do
He will say and do in your way when he’s grown up just like you.
There’s a wide eyed little fellow who believes you’re always right
And his ears are always open, and he watches day and night.
You are setting an example every day in all you do.
For the little boy who’s waiting to grow up to be like you.

I do not Fear Jehovah


The Lord will watch over your coming and going both now and forevermore. Psalm 121: 8 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

When I was a wee little boy there was a show in which the woman would hold up a mirror and claim to be able to see us. Sometimes I would cry out the she sees me in my underwear. It is funny to think of how naive I was back then.

But now, I know Jehovah, Jesus and the Holy Spirit really do see me.

That is good because when temptation comes I know they are watching and that is enough for me to run from it.

It is also good to know they see my pain and struggles. They come and comfort me and encourage me. They see me victories and come and share in the joy with me.

They also see when I am beginning to go astray and warn me of its dangers.

I do not fear Jehovah, Jesus and the Holy Spirit are constantly watching me, I rejoice in it. Joseph a son of Jehovah Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah El Roi. You are the God who sees ( Proverbs 15:3 ) for blessing me with Your ever present eye upon this child You love and adore so much. May my ear always be attentive to You wise, loving, caring voice every moment of every day. I exalt You in the name of my loving best friend, Jesus Christ who watches over me as well. Amen

May be be blessed with comfort and assurance that our loving Poppa is watching you this day. Joseph a son of Jehovah
