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

Yet True Godliness with Contentment Is

Yet true godliness with contentment is itself great wealth 1 Timothy 6:6 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Godliness is conforming ones life to Jehovahs will.

Contentment is being satisfied and grateful for what you have.

Therefore, what is being said here is that spiritual wealth that can only come from Jehovah is the greatest wealth of all.

Abundance, or prosperity, is having all that you need to meet any circumstance, with enough left over to give wherever God might direct you.

The Lord will withhold no good thing from those who do what is right. Psalms 84:11

When we walk in harmony with the Holy Spirits guidance our gracious Heavenly Father supplies all of our daily needs. Thus, trusting Jehovah at His word that He will meet all of our needs ( not wants) we will not suffer the stress that the world is experiencing at this troublesome time.

If I want the Masters rewards I must be willing to obey His direction in my life.  Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireh ( God provides Philippians 4:19 ) for Your abundant grace that is showered upon me every day as I walk in obedience unto The Holy Spirits guidance.

I applaud You in the name of the greatest spiritual gift You have blessed me with, Jesus Christ. Amen.

May your heart be open and obedient unto The Holy Spirits guidance this day so your day will be filled with contentment. 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.

I Beseech Thee Jehovah ELOHIM YAKOL

“Always be humble and gentle. Be patient with each other, making allowance for each other’s faults because of your love.” Ephesians 4:2The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Humble means that you do not place yourself above nor below anybody. You are confident in who you are. As Christians we know we are Jehovahs children, Jesus Christs servants and The Holy Spirits students. As such we do not need to be people pleasers nor to be abusive to others.

Gentle means to be considerate, tenderhearted, and compassionate. This means we are to be considerate (which also means respectful ) to others.

Tenderhearted means we are to be encouraging to others going through rough times. Compassion means we are to help others where there is a need.

Tenderhearted is mental while compassionate is taking physical action.

Patient means we are slow to lose our temper when others are slow to catch on or when they are just slow ( read in traffic or in check out lines ).

We need to judge others by the same degree in which we desire to be judged.

No, that does not mean we are not to judge others but that we all have trait that are annoying, like smacking lips loudly while eating. That is what making allowance for each other’s faults because of your love means.

These are impossible without the aid of the Holy Spirits power in us.

Prayer: I beseech Thee Jehovah ELOHIM YAKOL (God, the Most Able 2 Corinthians 9:8 ) bless me to emulate my idol Jesus Christ in all of my interactions this day.

I beseech Thee my love to bless me with discernment to know when I am being abused and take the proper course of action to stop it while behaving in a Christ like manner.

Por favor my Love bless me with the Holy Spirits guidance, strength and respect towards all that come my way this day. In the name of His with whom I so deeply desire to emulate in every aspect of my life I humbly request this, Jesus Christ. Amen

May you be blessed with The Holy Spirits guidance, power and love in all of your interactions this day. 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

In Every Aspect of Life

So be careful how you live. Don’t live like fools, but like those who are wise. Ephesians 5:15 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Now, how are we to gain wisdom?

Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Proverbs 3:5 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

In every aspect of life, and yes I do mean every aspect the first and most important thing you are to do is to take it to Jehovah and then wait for His advice before doing anything.

Doing this in my life was difficult, yet, it prevented a lot of heartache, pain and suffering in being obedient.

As well, it brought a lot of success in my journey along the road Christ has chosen for me to travel to our Heavenly Home.

There are so many unqualified voices out there that do not know what they are talking about. Yet, there are masses of fools following them like lemmings going over a cliff. No wonder the world is as mixed up as it is. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Emunah (God is faithful 1 John 1:9, 2 Thessalonians 3:3 ) for always being faithful towards this adoring child of Yours with Your wisdom in every nick and corner of my life. It has prevented a lot of needless suffering, heartache and frustration. It has helped me to live a righteous life which is pleasing to You and rewarding for me. I thank you in the name of the wisest of all, 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

The Simple Yet Effective Way To

In peace [and with a tranquil heart] I will both lie down and sleep, For You alone, O Lord, make me dwell in safety and confident trust. Psalm 4:8 The Holy Bible, The Amplified Version

It is amazing that most folks suffer from insomnia.

Yeah, I used to be one of them.

Then, I was enlightened to the simple yet effective way to the best sleep I have ever had.

When suffering insomnia it is because I always have a problem. The problem is laid out at the feet of Jesus. Usually it is difficult to lay it completely at His feet because He gently lulls me to sleep with a warm blanket of love and assurance He will help solve the problem. There is safety and confidence in my most trusted best friend.

It works for me, why not give it a try?

For the best nights sleep, sleep in the gentle loving arms of Jesus. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah OLAM ZEROWA ( The Everlasting Arms Deut. 33:26) that I can take comfort in Your strong yet gentle arms as You softly lulls me to sleep with Your kind reassurance. I adore You in the name of my loving big brother 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. Joseph a son of Jehovah May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love fill your heart today and every day. Joseph a son of Jehovah

And Then What?

This is good and pleases God our Savior, who wants everyone to be saved and to understand the truth. 1 Timothy 2:3-4 The Holy Bible, The New Life Version

I have encountered too many Christians that are determined to save the world.

Yeah, and then what?

Well, then they say praise Jesus when someone accepts Christ as their Saviour and then walk away.

That is like asking Jehovah to bless you with a child and when the baby is born the parents walk away.

How are they going to learn to live like Christians if you are not prepared to mentor them?

How are they going to learn to serve their King if you do not teach them?

No, that is not someone elses job, you brought them to Christ, now you are to educate them. This is a huge commitment that is going to take a long time, effort and suffering on your behalf. If you are not prepared to make that commitment then just shut up. You do more damage than any good because the newbies are left hanging out to dry and walk away from Jesus feeling angry and bitter towards both Him and His followers.

Bringing one to Jesus is only half of the equation. You must also teach them about Jesus. You must teach them to conform to His will. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Please Jehovah Immanuel (God is with us John 15:1-27 ) bless me to always be there for anybody that You bless me with the privledge of bringing them into Your Holy family as You are always there for me.

I humbly request this in the name of He who always walked with His disciples when He journeyed this earth Jesus Christ. Amen

May you be a blessing unto others as Christ has been a blessing unto you. 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
