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

Has Gone Through Suffering and Testing

Since he himself has gone through suffering and testing, he is able to help us when we are being tested. Hebrews 2:18 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Many folks feel it is senseless to come to Christ with our worries, hurts and problems because He is the big god in Heaven and does not care about mere mortals.

Yes He does.

There is not one crisis that you encounter that Christ has not been through.

He experienced the death of a good friend, was betrayed by another. He experienced homelessness and hunger. He was rejected by loved ones and was hated by the politically correct, even though He was trying to help them. He helped so many yet so few thanked Him. Even then, it was outsiders that thanked Him and not those in His national family ( the Jews ) . And of course, let us not forget the temptation in the wilderness when He was weak, hungry and exhausted.

No matter the situation, Jesus has been there, Jesus cares and when you depend upon Him, He will guide you through them all. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: It is with the greatest gratitude that I thank you Jesus Immanuel (God is with us John 15:1-27 ) that You have suffered like we do and so much more. Because of this, who better to run to when lifes tragedies come crashing down upon us.

Thank You.

Thank you for always being there.

Thank you for Your gentle, soft reassurance during these difficult times.

Thank you for Your encouragement, strength and guidance in resolving these catastrophes.

It is in Your magnificent loving name I exalt You. Amen May you always run to the loving arms of Christ when calamity comes a crashing through your door. Joseph a son of Jehovah T

I Meekly Implore You Jehovah Mauzzi

“What sorrow awaits you teachers of religious law and you Pharisees. Hypocrites! For you are so careful to clean the outside of the cup and the dish, but inside you are filthy—full of greed and self-indulgence! Matthew 23:25 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

When it comes to matters of religion, you probably have discovered that the most dangerous person in the Church is a hypocrite. You can’t tell them anything without a terrible reaction.

Unfortunately there are too many of these filthy marshmallows in every church.

They are quick to point out every little fault with all those in the congregation while perpetrating even worse sins in their own life.

When confronted with this they are like marsh mallows and welt in the heat. They take it personally like they are sweet angels and how dare you judge them by the same manner they judge others. They are like immature spoiled brats and throw a temper tantrum.

“Maturity is not based on age, but on the willingness to accept responsibility.”Dr. Edwin Louis Cole

These pretenders need to be expelled from the church until they repent or else they will destroy the entire congregation.

I have personally seen active and vibrant churches destroyed by just one of these wicked creatures so yes it is to be taken seriously.

Prayer: I meekly implore You Jehovah Mauzzi (Jeremiah 16:19 The LORD My Fortress ) to set up a strong impenetrable fortress around every church to keep the wolves at bay.

Please bless us with the grace and wisdom to take them to task when they are ripping apart Your holy family and, if necessary, expel them from the congregation for its survival.

We have enough outside Your church trying to destroy us, we do not need them inside as well. I respectfully request this in the name of our Church leader, Jesus Christ. Amen

May you be blessed with the tactfulness and strength to discipline and, if necessary, expel the destroyers of your church Joseph a son of Jehovah.

Jehovah Elohim Ozer Li

Some people make cutting remarks, but the words of the wise bring healing. Proverbs 12:18 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation Cutting remarks are snide mean and cruel comments.

Prayer: Please Jehovah Elohim Ozer Li (Psalms 54:4 GOD My Helper ) please bless me with wisdom, tact and grace to resolve this conflict occurring right now.

If the other refuses to resolve the issue than bless me with the strength, wisdom and grace to disassociate from the offender. I humbly request this in the name of He reconciled us with You, Jesus Christ. Amen

May you be blessed with Divine help to resolve your contentious issues today with those around you and with yourself. Joseph a son of Jehovah

He Instructed Me To

Do not say, “I’ll pay you back for this wrong!” Wait for the Lord, and he will avenge you.” Proverbs 20:22 The Holy Bible, The New International Version

I may get in trouble for saying this but in my experience it is true.

When someone does a woman wrong in their eyes they are very spiteful and will do anything they can to make your life pure living Hell. Therefore they need to take heed of this verse.

Before I was a mature Christian if someone crossed me look out. I was the most devious, cruel creature you had ever met when I got my pound of flesh.

Then, one day the Lord spoke to me and educated me that I was playing god when I met out the punishment for those who offended me. He instructed me to leave vengeance in His hands because He knows if the culprit did it intentionally or not.

There is nothing like getting someone back who did the offence unintentionally. Boy, there is a lot of egg on the face then and a innocent suffers which is even worse).

He knows the offender and so knows how to met out the appropriate punishment. I have seen His strong arm met out punishment and it brought out terror in my heart because I knew that could be me if when convicted by the Holy Spirit I refuse to repent.

Revenge is best left in Jehovahs hands. He knows how to deliver true justice. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah El Gemuwal ( Jeremiah 51:56 The LORD GOD of Recompenses ) for blessing me with burning off of the dross of having a revengeful heart.

Although it is difficult at times I know that true justice will be served in Your time and in Your way.

During this time of waiting for Your justice to be delivered please bless the offender to come to their senses and repent of their crime so they do not have to suffer because of it.

I gratefully thank You and humbly request this in the name of He who washes the filthiest sins away from the repentant heart, 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

Thank you Jehovah El Nekamoth

Be still in the presence of the Lord, and wait patiently for him to act. Don’t worry about evil people who prosper or fret about their wicked schemes. Stop being angry! Turn from your rage! Do not lose your temper it only leads to harm. Psalm 37:7-8 The Holy Bible, New Living Translation

I have gone through it numerous times through out my life.

There have been folks that are shifty, swindlers that are getting away with cheating others, including myself, out of money. They arrogantly laugh and brag about it.

In tears of frustration and anger on my knees I called out to the Lord for vengeance and justice.

Yet, nothing was done to punish the perpetrator.

Then, some where down the line, BANG, it hits them. It is total devastation in their lives.

They lose their wealth, they lose their home, they lose their marriage and family and, they lose their health. It is terrifying how total and complete the justice of Jehovah is when He strikes.

Now, when someone is abusing me, I just have faith in the Lord that He will help me get through the unpleasant experience and that Divine justice will be done.

So, when someone is abusing you or those you love and care about, do not get angry and try to get revenge. Leave it in the Lords strong, wise hands.

Justice, true justice, will triumph over evil every time. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah El Nekamoth (Psalms 18:47 GOD that Avengeth ) that justice, true justice will always be given out by Your strong hands of true justice. I exalt You in the name of the Supreme Judge, Jesus Christ. Amen

LORD GOD Of

These liars have lied so well and for so long that they’ve lost their capacity for truth.  1 Timothy 4:2 The Holy Bible, The Message

Boy do I know this to be true.

I know quite a few folks that in their younger years would occasionally lie like a rug to get what they want or to refuse to accept responsibility for doing wrong or to get out of doing their fair share of work.

“Maturity is not based on age, but on the willingness to accept responsibility.” Dr. Edwin Louis Cole

Now that they are old they cannot tell a complete sentence without lying. They are so arrogant they think they are smart but really they look just plain stupid.

As a result they are left friendless and miserable.

The sad thing is that because their minds are so perverted they reject the truth as lies and accept nothing but lies from others.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah El Emeth (Psalms 31:5) LORD GOD of Truth for blessing me with the truth and putting that application into my life. Many times it is difficult but in the long run it makes my life so much more fulfilling. I exalt You in the name of He who spoke nothing but the truth, Jesus Christ. Amen

May you be blessed with Divine enlightenment and the power to put it into your life. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Not Just To

  Hot tempered people must pay the penalty.  If you rescue them once, you will have to do it again. Proverbs 19:19 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation          

This applies not just to hot tempered folks but also to those with addictions whether that be substance abuse or whether it be lack of maturity in handling money.                      

If you keep on bailing them out, they will never take responsibly for their action and thus never mature.  You are doing them more harm than good.

Sad to say but it is true that mothers and grandmothers are the worst offenders of this.  

Prayer Please Jehovah Jireth ( Genesis 22:14 – The LORD Shall Provide ) bless me to have faith in Your provisions in my loved ones lives. You will do so in a manner in which they must become more mature children in Your family which will cause my heart to dance with joy.

I humbly ask this in the name of He who provided salvation to those who were willing to accept Him not just as their savior but as their king Jesus Christ. Amen  

May you be blessed with discernment to when to help and when the best help is to step back and allow those to reap the rewards of reckless living. Joseph a son of Jehovah

The Holy Spirit ‘Ori

The proud hold me in utter contempt, but I do not turn away from your instructions. Psalm 119:51The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

There once was a popular song about doing it my way style of life. Those that live that life are selfish, egocentric, proud and stubborn. They gladly use and abuse others just to get what they want. When cannot get what they want or do not need them anymore, they through them away like rubbish.

They hate and hold in utter contempt those that walk with integrity and obedience to Christ. They do so because when they see us, our lifestyle and manner convicts them ( we do not verbally convict them, it is our lifestyle they hate ). Deep down inside they know they are evil and wicked and the ultimate reward for this lifestyle is the bowels of Hell and eternal damnation.

Hell is full of the proud, Heaven is full of the humble. Chose now because you will not have that choice on judgment day. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah for sending me The Holy Spirit ‘Ori ( the Lord is my Light) Psalm 27:1 ) to guide the light of the path to Heaven You have chosen for me to travel. I pray You bless me to be a light to guide those walking in darkness to Your Divine Light. I humbly request this in the name of the Light of the World, Jesus Christ. Amen

May the Lord bless you to destroy the wall the wicked place over their hearts as you guide them to Jesus Joseph a son of Jehovah

Oh Jehovah Shalom

Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. Philippians 4:6 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Prayer: Oh Jehovah Shalom (The Lord blesses with Peace Isaiah 9:6, Rom 8:31-35 ) I thank you so much that I can always come to you with whatever is upsetting me. Every time You calm me down with Your gentle loving Divine peace and then softly speak to me and help relieve the stress I am experiencing.

Then You wisely explain the answer to all my questions and stressful situations. I am grateful that You have taught me to always come to You before I take any action.

I praise You in the name of the Prince of Peace Jesus Christ. Amen

Those who pray first, wait for the Lords answer and then be obedient unto His instruction have a lot less stress in their lives. Joseph a son of Jehovah
