The Strong Weakling.

 

 So I am well pleased with weaknesses, with insults, with distresses, with persecutions, and with difficulties, for the sake of Christ; for when I am weak [in human strength], then I am strong [truly able, truly powerful, truly drawing from God’s strength]. 2 Corinthians 12:10 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

When we are weak we are blessed with Christ’s Divine strength. We all have weaknesses in our life that are destructive to ourselves and to others. How many of us have unlimited patience ( especially in a check out line or in traffic ) ?

We know we need more patience and try as hard as we like it does not increase. Yet, when we call in Jehovah to bless us to expand our patience and have faith ( trust ) in Him to deliver the goods He does so with abundance. He will repeat this process in every weak area of our lives when we completely surrender it unto Him in faith.

The first few time this occurred to me there was both shock, awe and joy at His gift unto me.

Now that I have become accustomed to it there is a deep awareness of just how much He is moving in my life and there is constant thankfulness and gratitude added on as well. Why not give it a try? What do you have to lose ( except your weakness through His divine strength)? Then you will become a strong weakling in Christ.

Christ is the most powerful strengthener than anything on the market and His strength is guaranteed. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Chatsahi (The Lord is my Strength) for blessing me with Your unmeasurable strength during my times of weakness. I praise You in the name of the strongest King Jesus Christ. Amen

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

How Much do You Trust?

 

Then they asked Him, “What are we to do, so that we may habitually be doing the works of God?” Jesus answered, “This is the work of God: that you believe [adhere to, trust in, rely on, and have faith] in the One whom He has sent.” John 6:28-29 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Another word for faith is trust.

How much do you trust Jehovah with your life?

If He asks you to leave a well paying job to live in an impoverished environment with no means of income do you trust Him to supply you with all you need?

Do you trust Him to lead you to the right spouse to share you life with ( and that means man and woman not the filth the liberals ( satanic ) spew with their filthy lies) ?

What if they are not good looking or socially inept or not financially secure? Will you trust Him?

Do you trust Him in death that He will send an angel to take you safely to the other side?

When you are challenged with integrity to do the right thing even though it is going to cost you and you know you will suffer for doing what is right how much do you trust Him then?

For in the gospel the righteousness of God is revealed, both springing from faith and leading to faith [disclosed in a way that awakens more faith]. As it is written and forever remains written, “The just and upright shall live by faith.” Romans 1:17 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

But without faith it is impossible to [walk with God and] please Him, for whoever comes [near] to God must [necessarily] believe that God exists and that He rewards those who [earnestly and diligently] seek Him. Hebrews 11:6 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

God asks us to trust that He loves us… that He is with us this moment… that He rewards those who seek Him… that He will provide in the future as He has in the past… that He is working all things together for our good… that He is directing us and living His life through us… that He continually gives the wisdom we need… that He hears and answers our prayers.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Abba (God our Father) for being so patient with me over the years as You slowly taught me to expand and strengthen my trust in You and to prove me trust in You with my words and actions. I humbly exalt You in the name of He who trusted You all the way to the cross Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

The Cure for the Bait.

 

 He who guards his mouth and his tongue Guards himself from troubles. Proverbs 21:23 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

I know many wicked degenerates that take immoral pleasure in starting fights and twisting words. They stand there and laugh at you as you become so confused you do not know what you are saying.

Here is the cure for their bait: Write it down. These twisted souls hate when they see you write down their questions and statements while staying silent. When they ask me why this is being done it is explained that the reason for this is to confirm what the perverts said so there is no discrepancy about it later ( in other words I did not say that). They hate that.

If you do not know the answer then inform them you are going to discuss this with a qualified councilor ( they hate that as well).

Asking questions instead of giving statements to narcissists is the greatest tool to protect yourself from them and to expose them for the wicked fools they really are. Joseph- Anthony: Green

“The ability to speak several languages is an asset, but the ability to keep your mouth shut in any language is priceless.” Unknown

The same can be said for gossip. It is like a rampant disease that spreads like wild fire.

I used to have a game when teaching. I would write something down and whisper it in the child on the right, they would whisper it to the next and so on until it came back to me. It was NEVER what I said. Remember that the next time you feel the urge to join in this destructive perverted game.

Be careful about gossip, it destroys many innocent and you will be held accountable for that in Christs Court of Justice. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Ezer (The LORD our Helper) for helping me to keep my mouth shut until the appropriate time so as to avoid certain disaster. I extol Thee in the name of He who only spoke words of wisdom Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

In Your Midst.

                         

“The Lord your God is in your midst, A Warrior who saves. He will rejoice over you with joy; He will be quiet in His love [making no mention of your past sins], He will rejoice over you with shouts of joy. Zephaniah 3:17 Holy Bible Amplified Version.

Are you battling an addiction ( we all have them, it is part of our fallen lives ) ?

Jesus is our Warrior King. Surrender it completely to Him and He will conquer it with you ( notice I said with you, do not believe that when you place anything at Christs feet He will do all the work. Sometimes He will but most times it is team work between you and Him ).

Is there conflict in your life either personal or at work or school?

Surrender it to our Warrior King and the two of you will conquer the conflict together ( That does not mean Jesus will cause the other sides defeat but rather He will guide you to the proper resolution, which may mean you change your attitude and disposition not the other way around ).

Have you just had a success at something like getting that job or a successful operation or any other achievement in life?

Jesus is there rejoicing with you ( be polite and thank Him for blessing you with success ).

Are you beating yourself up over stumbling , welcome to life.

Sincerely repent and believe He has forgiven you.

We will stumble and crawl our way to Heaven, not strut Joseph- Anthony: Green

Unlike Santa Claus who is a marketing ploy to con you into departing with your money foolishly, Jesus Christ is real and He walks with you every day through your trial and tribulations, sorrows and snares, joys, and triumphs. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Question is, are you walking with Him?

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Shammah ( The Lord is Present ) for always being present in my daily walk. Thank you for walking with me through the difficult times and for being there to share the joy of our triumphs. I extol Thee in the name of He who walks with me and talks with me Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Prayer Helps Us to Respond.

when-i-pray

 When I am afraid,I will put my trust and faith in You. In God, whose word I praise;In God I have put my trust; I shall not fear. Psalms 56: 3-4 Holy Bible Amplified Version

We all encounter trials and tribulations, sorrows and snares.

I have experienced such intense tribulation it was difficult sleeping, eating and functioning in society. Nothing helped me, not words from friends or councilors, nor self help books. It was only when I got down on my knees and in deep anguish cried out to Jehovah that He blessed me with an all encompassing love which strengthened me and stilled my heart with peace. The fear slowly ebbed away like darkness with the rising sun. There was no fear just peace and assurance of Jehovahs firm but gentle hand upon my life. I trusted Him and had faith in Him. He did not let me down, He never does. He filled me with confidence and an eagerness to attack and destroy the troubles. This process has been repeated every time trial and tribulation, sorrow and snares come my way.

When trouble comes my way I get down on my knees and pray. Joseph- Anthony; Green

Christian, no matter what you are enduring now get down on your knees and pray with all your heart. Jehovah loves you, He cares about you and longs to comfort you, fill you with peace, love, strength and confidence. But, first, you must ask for His divine intervention and then be obedient unto His counsel if you are to experience assured victory.

Prayer helps us to respond to misfortune with courage, to react with confidence and to rebound with enthusiasm. –William Arthur Ward

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Immanuel (God is with us) that You are always there, that You always care, that You bless me with strength, wisdom, peace, assurance and love whenever trouble great and small come crushing down upon me. I exalt The in the name of He who calmed the violent storm for His loved disciples Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Have You Ever Tired That?

a-praying-man

 Now it came to pass in those days that He went out to the mountain to pray, and continued all night in prayer to God. Luke 6:12 Holy Bible, New King James Version.

There are two important equations in this text.

The first one is that Jesus went out to a quiet place to commune with Jehovah.

For me the best place to pray where there is deep personal conversation with my Beloved is in Jehovahs Cathedral ( nature). After all where can you not be closest to Him except in His creation where the trees, flowers and streams sing of His peace and beauty while the birds are singing praises unto Him. It fills me with peace and calm. Being relaxed with Him allows me to not only be more open and personal with Him but also where the hustle and bustle of the city does not drown out His voice speaking to me.

The next part is where Jesus prayed all night.

Have you ever tired that? I mean praying all night.

I have prayed for a couple of hours but all night, wow. The only time I can remember praying continually is during intense agony in my life. Then I prayed continually for a week. Throughout it all He gave me strength to endure it and comfort that He was there with me.

Of course we realize that this was the time of Christ’s time of agony before His torture and horrible death on the cross.

So whenever you are in a intense crisis perhaps then you will be able to pray not only all night but for days at a time like I did. Then you too will be strengthened and comforted during your intense time of tribulation.

Prayer: I immensely thank you Jehovah-‘Uzam (The Lord is our Strength in Trouble) for Your patience in listening to the cries of anguish of a cherished child of Yours when we are enduring trials and tribulations. I thank you for Your Divine strength, peace and comfort that enabled me to not only endure them but to grow spiritually and mentally because of them. I exalt You in the name of He who sweated blood during His time of agonizing prayer Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Worry Leads to Impatience

god-is-already-there

Do not fret; it leads only to evil. Psalm 37:8 Holy Bible Amplified Version

To fret means to worry.

Have we not all fretted on more than one occasion?

I used to be a first class worry wort. If things did not happen in my time , I would take matters into my own hands. When the crash and burn happened my cry unto Jehovah was always the same : “ Jehovah , where were You , why did You not help me. “ He of course was not to fault but it was my own fault. It took me many years to wait upon His time , in His way.

I used to believe I was a patient man until I became a Christian and had to wait upon Jehovahs timing , not my own. Joseph- Anthony: Green

I believe not only was He teaching me patience but also to have and enlarge my faith.

Worry leads to impatience waiting for Jehovah to answer. Impatience leads to arrogance which says I will not wait for the Lords answer. This leads us to take matters into our own hands. This , of course , leads to disaster. Joseph- Anthony: Green

“O God, never suffer us to think that we can stand by ourselves, and not need Thee.” — John Donne

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Emunah (God is faithful) for blessing me with teaching me to always have faith and to be patient to wait upon Your time in Your way in every aspect of my life. I know You are faithful unto me to never leave me nor desert me. I praise You in the name of He who waited three days in the tomb before rising to eternal glory Jesus Christ. Amen.

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