State of Well-Being and Contentment.

HOPE IN THE LORD

 But let all who take refuge and put their trust in You rejoice, Let them ever sing for joy; Because You cover and shelter them, Let those who love Your name be joyful and exult in You. Psalms 5: 11 Holy Bible , Amplified Version

In this context I believe joy can be expressed as a feeling or state of well-being and contentment.

Because we take refuge in Jehovahs strong yet gentle loving arms when trials and tribulations, sorrows and snares occur our mental and spiritual being experience a overwhelming sensation of well being and contentment which is permeated by the Holy Spirit.

When we place our total trust in Jehovah He blesses us with inner peace and contentment. We cannot but shout and sing in joyous exaltation for such an amazing blessing.

Prayer: I praise you Jehovah- Machsi – Lord my Refuge for blessing me with Your favour to take refuge in Your strong, loving gentle arms during our trials and tribulations, sorrows and snares. I delight in singing songs of praise, love and adoration towards You. I thank you for the times when the Heavenly chorus of angels join in. I exalt You in the name of He whose nail scarred hands made this benediction possible Jesus Christ. Amen

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.

No Long Pusses Allowed.

chief-duty

 Serve the Lord with gladness. Psalm 100:2 New King James Version

Have you ever seen the falsies?

You know the type, they walk around with their faces hanging down so low it looks like their chins is dragging the ground, while pretending to be in service unto Jehovah. It is vanity because they are saying to the world:”Look at how much I am suffering for the Lord. Aren’t I so holy.”

Jehovah is not conned by such simpleton behaviour. There is no long pusses allowed in service unto our beloved Father.

We have all met some one during our lives that we gladly bend over backwards to do anything for them because we have such a deep affection for them. Should we not emulate this behavior in service unto our Heavenly King?

And, if we so much in love with Him is a act of service or is it a gift of love and appreciation towards Him for all His never ending blessings he abundantly showers us with every day?

Now some times it is difficult in our service towards Him (just ask any childrens Sunday school teacher) but over all we are glad to be in a situation were we can serve our Lord as a gift of love and appreciation.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-‘Ori (the Lord is my Light) for blessing me with Your awesome light of joy that fills my heart with Your treasured love and joy as I gladly serve You today in the service You guide me to. I praise You in the name of He who was Your supreme servant on the cross Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.

But Whoever has Adequate Resources

SHARING

 But whoever has the world’s goods (adequate resources), and sees his brother in need, but has no compassion for him, how does the love of God live in him? 1 John 3:17 Holy Bible, Amplified Version

I have seen people who do without their daily needs so they can give to the bleeding hearts (most of whom are scam artists in my opinion) on TV cry babying for money. It is pitiful to see but they think they are doing good (meanwhile many of these ceo’s are getting paid millions of dollars and the people you think you are helping are just too lazy to help themselves). Many falsely believe they are obeying Jehovahs commands to help the “poor”.

When I was was in Central America folks were constantly telling me to get married and have lots of children so they can support them when they get old. Meanwhile they cannot support their families. They would look at me and say because I have more money than them I “owe” it to them to give them my money.

As well, volunteering in soup kitchens it was common for the “poor” to come up to me and brag about the new tattoo they got and then cry baby they do not have money for food and demand I give them money because I have more money than them.

We are to give, but we are to give sensibly.

Check out the organization (begin by looking at the ceo’s wages ) and if the money is going to actually help those who are worthy of the help.

I do not care if you think I am a scrooge. I would rather give wisely and be considered a Scrooge than give foolishly and be a sucker. Joseph- Anthony :Green

If you cannot afford to help financially then help by donating your time to a worthy cause.

Prayer:Please Jehovah-Jireh (God is our Provider) provide wisdom unto those who wish to honour You but have limited financial resources to organizations that will appreciate their skills more than their finances. Please provide those with available financial resources to organizations that will wisely use the gifts graciously provided unto them. I ask this in the name of he who always provided for His disciples when he walked with them Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.

Product of Attitude and Thought.

COMPLETE DEDITACATION

 And blessed (happy, prosperous, to be admired) is he who trusts [confidently] in the Lord. Proverbs 16:20 Holy Bible, Amplified Version

Every day I pray for Jehovah to bless me with opening my eyes to all His blessings great and small. Joseph- Anthony: Green

When I do this my attitude is one of gratefulness and this creates a happy disposition in my daily life that flows out to those around me. Many times it brings light into anothers darkened day. They in turn share it with others. You may be surprised at just how much your positive attitude can change the environment you are in whether that be at school work or in society ( like on public transit). Now, the older we get the more deep wounds we have in our hearts from those who have abused us.

The devil will use these to play over and over again in your mind to steal away your happiness.

When this happens, why not pray for Jehovah to help you focus your thoughts on your amazing love affair with Him.

When you have a heart of gratitude there is no place for anger, fear or worry. Joseph- Anthony: Green

This is a blessing that must be asked for daily and be appreciated in the evening time with bed time prayers of gratitude unto the giver of these blessings.

Happiness is a product of attitude and thought. It comes from you, not to you. –Richard Daly

Prayer: Please Jehovah-Bara (The Lord Creator) bless me with creating a daily attitude and behaviour of gratitude for all the numerous blessing You abundantly graciously give me every day. Bless me with concentrating upon Your love to heal the deep wounds that have been inflicted upon my heart so that it will be filled with Your divine love to be shared with others through out the day today and every day. I sincerely request this in the name of He who taught His disciples gratitude as He walked with them Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the sweet sunshine of Jesus’ beautiful love bless you today and every day.

We Serve One or the Other.

chief-duty

Serve the Lord with gladness and delight; Come before His presence with joyful singing. Psalm 100:2 Holy Bible Amplified Version

In life we all have a choice of who we will serve. We cannot serve them both. We will serve one or the other.

The second one is serving ourselves. We come above all others and all else.

Now some may say I do a lot of community work, how can that be serving myself?

Yes, but, why are you serving the community or is it to serve the community or is it to puff up your ego?

The sad thing is that those who are selfish and self serving (greedy) are the loneliest creatures I have ever met. Oh, they may have a lot of money, prestige, fame and toys but they have no one to love and to be loved by. They usually take comfort in a bottle or pills.

The number on choice is to serve the Lord.

Everything we do whether great or small that is dedicated unto Him is cherished by Him.

There is no small act of dedication unto Jehovah that is not great in Heaven. Joseph- Anthony: Green

We are to serve out of duty not obligation.

Duty is an act of love, obligation is a transaction of goods.

So those religions that falsely teach that good works will gain you entry into Shangrala are only deceiving you. When you receive your rewards here, you have completed the transaction of goods.

When we serve out of duty unto Jehovah it is done as an act of love. After all that is what it is all about. Being blessed with a loving relationship with Him and when you love someone you enjoy making them happy which is what duty is. The bonus we receive is a heavenly home where we will enjoy an eternal loving intimate relationship with our Divine Father.

Do you seek any further reward beyond that of having pleased God? In truth, you know not how great a good it is to please Him. –St. John Chrysostom

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Heseh (God is love) for blessing me with many opportunities to preform my duty unto You by serving others. I exalt You in the name of He who served us on with the ultimate service on the cross Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.

And Obey It.

SERVE THE LORD

Blessed rather are those who hear the word of God and obey it.” Luke 11:28 Holy Bible, New International Version

I have heard too many so called Christians say: “Yes, I am a Christian, I read my Bible every day.” My reply is: “That is good but do you obey what is revealed to you in the Bible?”

Too many times I have heard too many so called Christians quote from the Bible to suit their own ends, like certain cults that says man is head of the house to enslave their wives and children to be blindly obedient to them like slaves.. My reply is :”Yes but Jesus said that He came to serve not to be served.” That means that the man is to put his family above himself. Then they tell me I am misquoting the Bible.

Do not tell me you read your bible every day, show me you obey what is says to you every day. Joseph- Anthony: Green

The amazing thing is the slow transformation that occurs when you put obedience to Jehovahs word in every aspect of your life. Most times you are not even aware of the new creation you have become. People who have not seen you for many years are amazed at the difference in your lifestyle. One of the positive results of this obedience is the surpassing amount of love, joy and peace there is in your life.

If Christ does not reign over the mundane events in our lives, He does not reign at all.” Dr. Paul Tripp

How about you?

Are you a Bible reader and quoter or are you a Bible obeyer?

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Bara (The Lord Creator) for creating in this child of Yours an obedient heart that is submissive to Your Divine will in every aspect of my life. I praise You in the name of Your most obedient Son Jesus Christ. Amen

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.

Which Destination do You Chose?

Christ, WILL LEAD

 

For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do. Ephesians 2:10 Holy Bible New International Version.

We all have a predestination but must chose which one we will accept.

There are those who refuse to accept Christ as their Savior. To them their predestination is Hell. That is their choice.

There are the wise who accept Christ as their savior.

Now once we have accepted Christ He has predestined works for us to do. If we refuse to do these works He will punish us, if with nothing else than the refusal to bless us.

Think of a child who is informed that if they keep their room clean they will get an allowance on Friday. It has been predestined that doing their assigned work will be rewarded on a certain day.

When Christ assigns us work our predestined reward may be here and now but definitely will be in Heaven.

When driving down the road we see speed signs. If we go over the limit we get a ticket. That does not mean we cannot drive anymore.

So too it is when we refuse to obey Jehovah’s commands.

He will punish us but that does not mean we will lose our salvation.

If, however, we continue to live in disobedience unto Him, THEN, yes, you will lose your salvation be dammed to eternal Hell.

So my question to you is: which predestination have you chosen?

Prayer: Jehovah Hashanah (Jehovah our maker), thank you for the predestined path You have chosen for my life. Please help me to always stay on Your straight and narrow road. I modestly ask for this blessing in the name of He who is our great Sheppard Jesus Christ. Amen

May the sweet sunshine of Jesus’ precious love bless you today and every day.
