What is your problem?

 Don’t be afraid, for I am with you. Don’t be discouraged, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you. I will hold you up with my victorious right hand. Isaiah 41:10
The Holy Bible New Living Translation

What is your problem?

Is it fear?

Believe me, I have been there more times than I can count. The majority of times it was for nothing.

Fear is a lack of trust in Jehovah. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Being mere mortals we will always have moments of fear.

The difference is that those of us who have walked with Christ long enough know enough to conquer that fear by immediately praying unto Jesus and having the confidence He will take care of it for us. That does not mean that we will just sit back on out buts and wait for Him to do all the work.

Faith means that sometimes we sit back and allow Jehovah to work His will through the problem with the belief that He will take care of it. It also means that we are willing to follow His commands, even though, many times we do not see nor understand what He is doing.

At first this was a terrifying experience for me. Now, I just laugh a wait to see just how unusual a way He will resolve the issue (and in my life it is always in unusual ways).

Are you discouraged?

Boy have I traveled down that road with that heavy load on my back.

Again at first it is difficult to have faith that Jehovah will lift us up. Sometimes He allows us to endure through the experience to build our character up.

“Talents are best nurtured in solitude: character is best formed in the stormy billows of the world.” — Goethe

Sometimes, He lovingly comforts, encourages and strengthens us to continue on. Jehovah is always there to help us in the best manner for victory over the challenges of life. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Tsuri (Psalms 19:14 O LORD My Strength) for blessing me with the strength to continue on when I feel as if there is nothing left in me to give. Thank you for Your powerful strength to carry me when I am too exhausted to continue on. I praise You in the name of He who had the strength to endure the horrors of the cross for me, Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Which No One Can Defeat

 “Let all bitterness, wrath, anger, worry, and evil speaking be put away from you, with all malice.  And be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as Jehovah in Christ forgave you.” Ephesians 4:31-32 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Anger truly pollutes the mind.

How many times do we allow anger to boil like a tea kettle and then blow off steam and say words we regret later?

I have found that when anger begins small in my mind I immediately pray to Jehovah for control. He always answers and a disaster is prevented.

I have found that when rehashing incidents in the mind that cause anger, the mind becomes inflamed like a fire with anger and destructive thoughts come to mind on how to avenge the wrong. This, of course leads to disaster.

I have found that when these thoughts enter the mind to immediately pray to my Heavenly Father and He extinguishes those thoughts like a water bomber extinguishes as forest fire.

This is not a one off experience but a daily battle against satan and his goons. They are too strong and witty for me.

The best defense that brings victory for these battles is to pray and ask the Holy Spirit to make me sensitive to them and immediately call in the Holy Warrior which no one can defeat, The Holy Spirit.

Here are a few victory verses. Write them down. Repeat them every morning like you are talking with Jehovah. Carry them with you.

Only by your power can I push back my enemies; only in your name can I trample my foes. Psalms 44:5 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation I am not afraid, for the Holy Spirit is with me.

I am not discouraged, for Jehovah is my God. Jesus strengthens me and helps me. He holds me up with His victorious right hand. Isaiah 41:10 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

“Let all bitterness, wrath, anger, worry, and evil speaking be put away from you, with all malice.  And be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as Jehovah in Christ forgave you.” Ephesians 4:31-32 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

I give all my worries and cares to Jehovah, for he cares about me. 1 Peter 5:7 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

It is successful for me, why not give it a try?

We are in a spiritual battle every day. The only weapon to guarantee victory is to depend upon the unbeatable Warrior King Jesus Christ and His victory verses which sends the wicked scurrying for cover. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Gibbor Milchamah (Psalms 24:8 The LORD Mighty In Battle) for helping me live a victorious life every day through Your help when I need it and through Your protection when the attacks are too strong for me. Thank you for being so patient with me in this continuing battle that will last all the way to Heavens Gate. I praise You in the name of He who always defeated satan and his minions Jesus Christ my Warrior King. Amen

May you be blessed with abundant joy in your heart filled with love and your life overflowing with laughter every day this year. Joseph a son of Jehovah

So Too is it With

Because I am in Christ [that is, grafted in, joined to Him by faith in Him as Savior], I am a new creature [reborn and renewed by the Holy Spirit]; the old things [the previous moral and spiritual condition] have passed away. Behold, new things have come [because spiritual awakening brings a new life]. 2 Corinthians 5:17 The Holy Bible, The New Living Testament Version

WE MUST LET GO

Have you ever seen them graft one tree into another?

I have always found that fascinating. The grafted part becomes a part of the tree. It depends upon it for sustenance. Indeed, if it was a different species it now becomes a new one.

So too is it with our relationship with Christ.

The moment we accept Him as our Saviour, King and best friend He begins grafting us into one of His own. We depend upon Him for our mental, physical and spiritual health.

The things that once fascinated us soon become repugnant and repulsive to us.

Now, we have become more like Him we have the same disposition as Him and the same fancies.

This is strange to those on the outside and so they mock us. That is to be expected because those on the out side mocked Jesus as well.

The Holy Spirit is the best make over artist of all Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Bore (Isaiah 40:28 The LORD Creator ) for blessing me with grafting me into You most beautiful holy family. I thank you in the name of He whose blood made it all possible Jesus Christ. Amen

May the light of Christs love shine brightly in your heart today and every day Joseph a son of Jehovah

I Like to Do It Incognito

 “Watch out! Don’t do your good deeds publicly, to be admired by others, for you will lose the reward from your Father in heaven. When you give to someone in need, don’t do as the hypocrites do—blowing trumpets in the synagogues and streets to call attention to their acts of charity! I tell you the truth, they have received all the reward they will ever get. But when you give to someone in need, don’t let your left hand know what your right hand is doing. Give your gifts in private, and your Father, who sees everything, will reward you. Matthew 6:1-4 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

CHRIST FIRST, OTHERS SECOND

The other day while walking down the hallway after visiting a friend in the hospital I noticed little plaques on the wall with names of folks who donated to the hospital. The bigger the donation, the bigger the plaque.

It was the same in a church I recently dropped off clothing to give to others for free. I could not help but think that although these were generous gifts they were given out of excess and were given to puff up the ego of the giver.

How many of the parishioners gave out of their meager wages denying themselves for the good of the church or hospital?

To me, these are the real generous givers.

It is the same when I watch folks running for a cause like cancer.

How many of them are running with selfie sticks?

Are they running for the cause of a cure for cancer or for the cause of puffing up themselves?

When I give, I like to do it incognito, because of the disdain for being applauded for it in public. Instead I always give thanks to Jehovah for the idea to give to that specif cause and for the opportunity to do so with great joy.

Give but give with the object of giving glory to Jehovah not to self. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah El Simchath Gili (Psalms 43:4 GOD My Exceeding Joy) for guiding where to give and how much to give to those who You deem worthy. Doing so creates a heart that beats with ecstatic joy in helping while giving glory to You magnificent name.                                       I praise You in the name of He who gave the ultimate sacrifice for me Jesus Christ. Amen

May you be blessed with abundant joy in your heart filled with love and your life overflowing with laughter every day this year. May you be blessed with numerous opportunities to share these gifts with others today.   Joseph a son of Jehovah

 Do Not Act Like

Do not act like the sinful people of the world. Let God change your life. First of all, let Him give you a new mind. Then you will know what God wants you to do. And the things you do will be good and pleasing and perfect. Romans 12:2 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

I remember when a young man they used to have movie critics that would rate whether movies were good or bad. From my experience when I listened to them and paid good money to watch the film, it was a horrible film. The films they panned were the ones I enjoyed watching.

I remember talking with work mates about new series that came out on TV. Even though they did not like the shows they watched them because they wanted to be with the in crowd.

LAUGH AT FOOLS

However, I consider them to be cattle just being led by the puppets of big business and foolishly wasting their money to stay cool all the while becoming slaves to the bank by going deeply in debt. None of them look to happy to me.

Now, following the advice Jehovah has blessed me with in the Bible has brought me a lot of wisdom, peace, comfort, strength, integrity and joy. Many believe I am weird for living the Christian lifestyle.

HE GIVES ABUNDANTLY

I listen to Jesus rather than man because He only wants what is best for me and has the knowledge to guide me on how to attain it. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah El Deah (God of knowledge. Romans 11:33) for blessing me with Your supreme knowledge for every aspect of my life. You have prevented a lot of tragedy in my life as well as have blessed me with living a meaningful life. I thank You in the name of the best Guidance Councillor Jesus Christ. 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

Going Down the Road To

 And don’t let us yield to temptation, but rescue us from the evil one. Matthew 6:13 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

GODS HELP

My Beloved Father,this world is changing ever faster every day. It seems as if everywhere I turn whether it is on the computer, TV or radio all’s that is on is evil and filth.                                                                                                                                          Many times it raises anger in my heart at seeing society going down the road to Hell and determined to take as many as they can with them.                             However, I know You are in control and have complete trust in You. Please protect my loved ones and myself from the devils evil schemes with these tools of destruction he uses so craftily.                                                                                              Please send angles to protect my loved ones and myself from satans minions. Please send the Holy Spirit to guide me them and myself away from the devils temptation and towards Your loving, safe protective arms.                                     Thank you that in our weak moments when we turn to You, You rescue us from temptation . I humbly request this in Jesus Christs mighty name. Amen 

May the light of Christs love shine brightly in your heart today and every day Joseph a son of Jehovah

In Exchange for You 

 Others were given in exchange for you  I traded their lives for yours because you are precious to me.  You are honored, and I love you. Isaiah 43:4   New Living Translation  

GODS LOVE

Jehohahs most precious son was given in exchange for you and me.   

Read it like this Jesus was exchanged for me. Jehovah traded His life for mine. Because I am precious to Him. I am honoured and Jehovah (and Jesus) loves me.            

That not only sounds nice but should be ingrained in our thoughts before we say or do anything. How could we say or do anything that would not bring glory and honour to them as a gift of appreciation to them for their extravagant gift of love to me.

You must be valuable, Jesus would not have endured that suffering for a no body. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: With tears of gratitude to both You and Your treasured son I humbly thank you Jehovah Elohe Yeshuathi (Psalms 88:1LORD GOD of My Salvation) for blessing me with the most precious sacrifice ever, the Holy blood of Your most cherished Son in order that I may, through His blood be welcomed into Your amazing family.                                                                                                           I thank You in the name of He with whom I love so dearly 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. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Why Destroy Yourself?

THE FIRES OF HELL

So don’t be too good or too wise! Why destroy yourself? On the other hand, don’t be too wicked either. Don’t be a fool! Why die before your time? Ecclesiastes 7:16-17 The Holy Bible The New Living Translation

Too much wisdom can lead to self righteousness. Being a do gooder for the praise of others or as a bargaining chip with Jehovah(i.e. Look at all the good things I have done, now you owe me).

Too wise is when you have an arrogant ego over those who know less about being a Christian than you do or know less about the Bible than you do.

If you know more than others, one of the first things you must know is that Jehovah hates arrogance and that our wisdom comes from the grace and understanding that was given through the Holy Spirit. Joseph a son of Jehovah

How can being a fool cause you to die before your time?

Could it be that being a thrill seeker unnecessarily puts your life a risk , like bungee jumping or kayaking dangerous rapids or try to out ski an avalanche or living a dangerous lifestyle like homosexuality?

Could it be that living in excess of indulgences as gluttony and or drugs and booze destroys your body quicker than normal aging does?

Could it be that lying, cheating and abusing folks means you will get seven times back by Jehovahs ultimate court of justice?

You dance with the devil, you are going to get burned. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Holy Spirit Elohim Ozer Li (Psalms 54:4 GOD My Helper) for knocking me off of any high horse I climb on in order to prevent my head from getting too big.

Thank you for guiding me away from dangerous activities that can lead to disaster.

I praise you in the name of the humblest of with whom I adore and try, with Your help, to emulate Jesus Christ. Amen

May the light of Christs love shine brightly in your heart today and every day Joseph a son of Jehovah
