The Faith of Adherence.

 Then his wife said to him, “Do you still cling to your integrity [and your faith and trust in God, without blaming Him]? Job 2:9 Holy Bible Amplified Version

If anybody had the right to lose faith in Jehovah it is Job. Everything he had, his wealth family and health while remaining faithful unto Jehovah. Yet, through it all he persevered even though he did not understand while all the tragedy was happening to him.

There have been many times in my walk with Christ when I was suffering and not knowing why it was happening. I called out unto the Lord and He was silent. In the end I just told the Lord that even though it is tough and I do not understand why this is happening my faith in Him and His reason for allowing this was unshakable. It was later that I realized that some of them occurred to strengthen my faith while others were happening to burn off the dross. The final analysis though is that it was always for my own good.

“When I cannot enjoy the faith of assurance, I live by the faith of adherence.” — Matthew Henry

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Hamelech ( Jesus my Lord King ) that even though many times I do not understand what You are doing or why I have complete faith that You are doing this for my own good because You love me so much. I exalt You for this blessing in Your awesome name. Amen.

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

God Can Count the Apples.

 Would not God discover this? For He knows the secrets of the heart. Psalm 44:21 Holy Bible Amplified Version

I have met many whom I believed to be righteous and pious only to be bitterly disappointed to discover later that they were first class scoundrels.

I have met many whom I believed were cold hearted only to discover they were just reserved in character but generous in heart. Y

ou can fool some of the people some of the time but you can never fool Jehovah at any time. Joseph a son of Jehovah

That is why it is important not to judge others but to go to Jehovah in sincere prayer and request His guidance in relationship with others. For, He knows the true heart of all men and women. He knows the ones that produce sweet fruit and He knows the ones that produce bitter fruit.

Since doing this I have avoided a lot of terrible relationships and been blessed with some unusual beautiful relationships with others.

“Anyone can count the seeds in an apple… but only God can count the apples in a seed.” — Author Unknown

Prayer: Thank you Holy Spirit Kal El (voice of God) for wisely guiding away from toxic folks and towards the loving ones that cross my path to Heaven. I exalt You in the name of the wisest Rabbi Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Be Thankful

In every situation [no matter what the circumstances] be thankful and continually give thanks to God; for this is the will of God for you in Christ Jesus.1 Thessalonians 5:18 Holy Bible Amplified Version

I desired to make raised flower beds for my aged mother who can no longer bend over to work in her flower beds and she loves her flower beds and working in them. I wanted ten skids and my friend suggested he could get a truck and we could pick them up the next day, but because the truck he wanted to borrow was not available he phoned and informed me we could only get three.

There was disappointment and anger in my heart because we agreed upon ten.

After talking with Jehovah became I became grateful for what was given and for my friends help and waited for him to come pick me up the next day to get the skids.

The friend showed up with five skids in the back of his SUV the next afternoon. When we went to the place where the skids were supposed to be they were all gone. He drove to the place where he saw the skids on the side of the road during his morning walk and we got five more.

Because of that the raised garden could be made ( even though it was not as big as I wanted. I wanted to build a pyramid raised garden but the skids were too small).

As well there was enough skids to use as the base to make another bigger raised garden using a discarded dresser drawer. Another blessing was Jehovah giving me an idea on how to make more raised gardens as a border for our flower beds using materials around the house that I never thought of.

As a consequence there was not a need for so many skids.

When we desire something but Jehovah does not give us what we want but are to still be appreciative. Then Jehovah multiplies His blessings upon us.

A faithful (right-minded) man will abound with blessings. Proverbs 28:20 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Jireh (God is our Provider) for providing for me the material necessary to build a monument of love towards Your cherished daughter, my mother and for the brother who graciously helped me. I thank You in the name of He who was grateful for the blessings of the disciples You sent unto Him Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Sound Judgment and Discipline.

 For God did not give us a spirit of timidity or cowardice or fear, but [He has given us a spirit] of power and of love and of sound judgment and personal discipline [abilities that result in a calm, well-balanced mind and self-control]. 2 Timothy 1:7 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Notice it says sound judgment and discipline.

How are we to receive these daily Heavenly necessities in our lives?

Sound judgment can only be achieved through constant tutorship of the Holy Spirit and obedience unto our Divine Teacher. The more we listen and obey the more He will bless us with Divine wisdom in every aspect of our lives.

Think of it like going to school.

You must learn the instruction from your grade one teacher before you graduate to grade two. Now for those of us that are old enough, reflect how much you have progressed in knowledge since grade one.

So too it is with the Holy Spirits school of Divine life.

We must start out small with baby steps in our early walk and then sometimes slowly and sometimes in leaps and bounds walk towards Heaven in the knowledge and wisdom of Heavenly citizenship. Joseph son of Jehovah.

Discipline is incorporating what we have learned in the Holy Spirits Divine school into our daily lives. Joseph son of Jehovah. The metamorphosis that occurs in us is the amazing abilities that result in a calm, well-balanced mind and self-control

Prayer: Thank you Holy Spirit Rabbi (God our Teacher) for blessing this difficult student with Your Divine wisdom, You amazing patience and Your ultimate strength to become the child my Beloved Heavenly Father desires me to be. Thank You for gently nagging me to discipline Your lessons into my daily life. I praise You in the name of the greatest Teacher Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Do Not be Afraid.

 ‘Do not fear [anything], for I am with you; Do not be afraid, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, be assured I will help you; I will certainly take hold of you with My righteous right hand [a hand of justice, of power, of victory, of salvation].’ “Indeed, all those who are angry with you will be put to shame and humiliated; Those who strive against you will be as nothing and will perish. Isaiah 41:10-11 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

When you experience Jehovah calling you out into the unknown do not be afraid. This of course is easier said then done.

For me I used to call out and say as the man said to Jesus: “ I believe, help me in my unbelief.” In essence he was saying I know You can do it but there are still doubts, please help me conquer my doubts.” There is nothing wrong with that. It is being perfectly honest with Jehovah which is what He desires of us.

Of course the longer we walk into the unknown with our Master the more trust we have in Him.

Do you notice how it says to take hold of His right hand?

The right hand signified supreme authority, Divine blessing, strength, justice and power.

So Jehovah is informing you to freely and confidently call upon His right hand to deliver Divine justice while abundantly pouring out His majestic strength and power into your spirit to conquer any wicked ones that stupidly attack one who belongs to the Supreme King. Of course we see the results at the final passage and it will not be pleasant to your attackers.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Helech ‘Olam (The Lord our King Forever) for blessing this humble child of Your with Your limitless strength, provisions, justice, provisions and wisdom while following the path You have chosen for me to take to the Heavenly home You have prepared for me to take. I exalt You in the name of He who depended upon Your Divine strength to walk all the way to the cross for me Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Are You Calling Jehovah a Liar?

 Let your character [your moral essence, your inner nature] be free from the love of money [shun greed—be financially ethical], being content with what you have; for He has said, “I will never [under any circumstances] desert you [nor give you up nor leave you without support, nor will I in any degree leave you helpless], nor will I forsake or let you down or relax My hold on you [assuredly not]!” Hebrews 13:5 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Are you calling Jehovah a liar?

Notice how He said for He will NEVER desert us nor forsake us. . That is a direct promise from Him unto us.

To forsake us means turn away from entirely. That is like saying you turn your back on someone. Jehovah will never turn His back on you as long as you never turn your back on Him. He will see your daily needs and supply you with them. Sometimes He will abundantly, sometimes frugally but always supply your daily needs.

If you turn your back on Him and refuse to obey Him then He most certainly will turn His back on you ( read about it in the Old Testament before the Israelites and Judeans were destroyed by the Chaldeans and Babylonians ).

It is not that Jehovah walks away from you but that you have walked away and turned your back on Him. Joseph son of Jehovah

To desert us means to leave usually without intent to return. That means to walk away from someone.

As long as you do not walk away from Jehovah, He will not walk away from you. He will never walk away from you when you are experiencing difficulties.

When you doubt your circumstances outcome you doubt that He will provide for you. That is calling Him a liar.

Notice how we are commanded to be content with what we have. That means we are not to be suckers and foolishly go out and get into debt ( which is becoming a slave by the way) buying things we do not need like a new car when there is nothing wrong with the old one, or buying a house you cannot afford or buying a new mobile phone just because it has some new gadget this year when there is nothing wrong with the old one. These things are a form of gluttony and pride. Both of them are disgusting unto Jehovah.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Emunah (God is faithful) for always being faithful unto Your word to this loved child of Yours. I take great comfort and strength in Your Holy Word. I praise you in the name of the greatest Word of truth Jesus Christ. Amen

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

A Memorial Offering Before God

 And the angel said to him, “Your prayers and gifts of charity have ascended as a memorial offering before God [an offering made in remembrance of His past blessings]. “Acts 10:4 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

A memorial is something that keeps remembrance alive.

Many of us at time become discouraged when our gifts of charity are abused and the recipients are very ungrateful. When you become discouraged by this arrogant selfish behaviour and wonder if it has any meaning remember that even though it is not appreciated by the recipients it is cherished by Jehovah.

Your prayers and charity may be unnoticed by man but is the sweetest offering of love to Jehovah. Joseph son of Jehovah

When it seems as if those you are praying for fight both you and Jehovah to access the fulfillment of the blessing of the prayer and you wonder if it is an exercise in futility remember that it is a sweet cherished gift unto Jehovah. This is especially true when done as a gift of appreciation unto Jehovah for past blessings He has bestowed unto you.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Kabodhi ( The Lord my Glory ) for blessing me with the assurance that my prayers and gifts unto You by serving others will be rewarded with glory in Your Heavenly home. I praise You in the name of my Heavenly King who will place the crown upon my head upon entry into Your Heavenly home Jesus Christ. Amen.

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