That was Going to Sink.

He saw that they were in serious trouble, rowing hard and struggling against the wind and waves. About three o’clock in the morning Jesus came toward them, walking on the water. He intended to go past them, but when they saw him walking on the water, they cried out in terror, thinking he was a ghost. They were all terrified when they saw him. But Jesus spoke to them at once. “Don’t be afraid,” he said. “Take courage! I am here!”  Then he climbed into the boat, and the wind stopped. Mark 6:45-52 The  Holy Bible, The New Living Testament Version

Do you notice Jesus was walking on the very water that was going to sink His Disciples?

He has dominion and power over everything, including your problems, worries and heartaches.

Did you notice when Jesus entered the boat the waves subsided.

So too will your worries, and heartache subside when Jesus enters into your situation. You must call upon Him in faith ( which means trust) that He will help you. Not only that, but, you must be obedient unto the advice He gives you in order to conquer the problem, worry or heartache.

Jesus is the best rescuer in the universe and beyond. Joseph a son of Jehovah

GOD IS IN THE FURNACE WITH US

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Yasha (Lord my Savior) Isaiah 49:26 that whenever I am obedient unto Your wise advice, You rescue me from all trouble, sorrows and snares.                                        I praise You in the name of He whose blood rescued me from eternal damnation Jesus Christ. Amen May you be blessed with peace and joy every day. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Good That Goes with Bad.

 The Lord also keeps safe those who suffer. He is a safe place in times of trouble. Those who know Your name will put their trust in You. For You, O Lord, have never left alone those who look for You. Psalm 9:9-10 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

There is always good that goes with bad.

Look at the virus that is snaking around the world right now. Yes it is causing a lot of sickness and death. But, it is also contributing to a lot of good.

Look at how many families are spending time together like they did forty years ago.

Look at how folks are looking out for each other in their communities.

Look at how folks are coming together in creative ways in their church to keep together.

Look at how many folks are having time to read their Bibles, for some, maybe the first time in their life.

Look at how many folks are taking walks on nature trails which is good for their mental, physical and spiritual health.

And, most important of all is look at how many folks are spending quality time with Jehovah, perhaps for the first time in their lives.

It is in the difficult times we come the closest to Jesus. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Immeka (Judges 6:12 The LORD Is with You ) for walking with me through these difficult times.                                                                                                                            May you use me to encourage others and help others under Your guidence as You have helped and encouraged me.                                                                                                                                                I apologize that it took at catastrophe like this for me to come and spend time with You.                             I thank you in the name of He who always fulfills His promise to never leave me nor desert me, Jesus Christ. Amen         

    JEHOVAHS CARE                                                                                                                                                                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.

He is Close To

The Lord is good, a strong refuge when trouble comes. He is close to those who trust in him. Nahum 1:7 New Living Translation

trust in God

Those of us that have walked with Christ for a while know full well the difficulty in trusting in Him. There are times it seems as if there is nothing but trouble a woe in our lives. It seems as if the world is crushing down on us and we are going to explode. We cry out unto Jehovah but He is silent. This is the most difficult time to trust in Him. Even those of us that have walked the trail for a long time have at times difficulty trusting in Him during crushing crises.

That is okay though.

As long as we call out unto Him, trusting He will answer (and He always does). For me I have experienced Jehovah delivering me from the tsunami as well as being blessed with His presence during the tornadoes of life. One thing that is the same in each is His Spirit being with me through it all. He encourages, reassures and strengthens me through it all.

No matter the storm, Jesus is right there walking through it with us. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Hoshe’ah – ( The Lord Saves ) – Psalm 20:9 for blessing me with Your salvation from the ravages of the tsunamis and tornadoes of life. In deep awe and appreciation I do thank You in the name of He whose blood saved me from the burning fires of Hell, 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

We are Still Stewards

 The Lord God placed the man in the Garden of Eden to tend and watch over it. Genesis 2:15 Holy Bible, New Living Translation

Now, even though we are not in the Garden of Eden we are still stewards of Jehovahs creation.

One day early this spring while riding my bicycle down a country road the Lord guided my attention to how filthy the side of the road was and reminded me that as a Christian I am a caretaker of Jehovahs creation. He inspired me to go midweek with some garbage bags and start to clean up all the rubbish on the side of the road. It was incredible the amount that was collected in a short distance. I made a commitment to return one day a week and continue down the road until it was all cleaned up.

You must not defile the land where you live, for I live there myself. I am the Lord, who lives among the people of Israel.” Numbers 35:34 Holy Bible, New Living Translation

After about a month, it rained out on the scheduled clean up day. A couple of days later when riding down the road to get some supplies for our garden the Lord directed my attention to the side of the road. It was spotless. That means someone or group noticed the work done, how it looked good and how bad the uncleaned part looked. They took the initiative and cleaned it up.

Many times we can lead by example in life with out even realizing it. Joseph a son of Jehovah

LEADERSHIP

You yourself must be an example to them by doing good works of every kind. Titus 2:7 Holy Bible, New Living Translation

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Bore (Isaiah 40:28) The LORD Creator for blessing me with helpers to restore some of Your creation to the beauty You created to be. I exalt You in the name of He who will restore all of creation to its original beauty upon His victorious return Jesus Christ. Amen

May Gods sunshine always bless you with brightening your day with His love, joy and peace. Joseph a son of Jehovah

The Best Peace Treaty

  Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:7 Holy Bible New Living Translation

The best peace treaty there can ever be is the one between you and Jehovah.    

The only way to accomplish this is to surrender your will to His. We are to do as He suggests. Jehovah is too honorable to demand, He is respectful and asks. We refuse to obey at our own peril.  When we surrender our all to Him, He will bless us with peace, comfort, security and assurance.               

OBEY GODS WORD                                        

 Going our own way or going with the crowd only condemns you to a life of confusion, depression, worry, anger and fear.             

 “Being at peace with yourself is a direct result of finding peace with God.”  Olin Miller

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Shalom (the God of Peace) for blessing me with Your Heavenly Divine peace which no other can compare. I exalt You in the highest in the name of the Prince of Peace Jesus Christ. Amen

May your house be filled with joy in the morning and sweet dreams at night. May it be a home where love has come to live. Joseph a son of Jehovah

I Believe in Christian Evolution.

Here is the reason why I believe in Christian evolution: Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Romans 12:2 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

This transformation takes filthy men and women and transforms them into beautiful children of Jehovah.

It transforms addicts into Jehovahs children.

It transforms the strongest atheists into solid children of Jehovah.

You name the sin and Jesus’ blood transforms that sinner into a loving obedient child of Jehovah.

Now this is not done in the flash of a moment. No, it takes a lifetime of commitment to Jehovahs teaching and surrendering of our will unto His will.

work-in-progress

This process does not end at Heavens Gate but continues on in our Heavenly home.

You are in a lifetime evolution when you become a Christian going from a dirty clump of clay to a beautiful work of art. Joseph a son of Jehovah

PRAYER: Thank you Jehovah Bore (Isaiah 40:28) The LORD Creator for being so persistent with this tough lumpy blob of clay and evolving me into the beautiful creation You intended me to be. I exalt You in the name of He whose love is the most beautiful creation that is constantly evolving in my heart Jesus Christ. Amen

Whatever is beautiful, whatever is meaningful, whatever brings you joy, may you be blessed with an abundance of it this every day this year. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Why do You?

 We know that God doesn’t listen to sinners, but he is ready to hear those who worship him and do his will. John 9:31 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

If you desire for your prayer to be answered you must be wholly devoted unto Jehovah. You must devote your mind, body and spirit to Him.

There is no Christian with one foot in Heaven while the other foot is in Hell that can expect Jehovah to answer their prayer. Joseph a son of Jehovah

There is no wanting to fly like an angel while swimming with the pigs in the cesspool of sin. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Why do you gorge yourself on fleshly desires and expect Jehovah to bless you with more valuable spiritual blessings?

Why do you expect Jehovah to deliver you from sorrows, worry and or pain when you are dancing with the devil?

Just as you cannot be a bird and be a fish at the same time, neither can you be a child of Jehovah while befriending the devil. You cannot expect a gift from Jehovah if you are carousing with the devil.

FOLLOWING CHTISTS EXAMPLE

If you sincerely want your prayers to be answered get away from the prince of darkness and begin walking with the King of Light. Joseph a son of Jehovah

PRAYER: Thank you Jehovah Elohim Tsebaoth (Psalms 59:5, Isaiah 28:22) LORD GOD of Hosts for blessing me with being a member of the holy host of saints and angels that worship You both now and for eternity. I praise You in the name of who I look forward to worship in person in our Heavenly home 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
