He Will Save You.

HAVE COURAGE

 Say to those with an anxious and panic-stricken heart, “Be strong, fear not! He will save you.” Isaiah 35:4 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Anxious is described as feeling or showing uncomfortable feelings of uncertainty.

We have all experienced anxiousness in our lives.

The difference between Christians and those of the world is that they have no where to turn to to provide them with concrete assurances that those they go to for help are in control and to fill them with peace.

We as Christians have the confidence in Jehovah who controls everything.

When we are obedient unto His guidance He will sooth out fears, comfort us and guide us to the best path to take out of the dark forest of uncertainty that envelopes us in whatever the circumstance is that is causing us apprehension.

Panic is defined as the emotion experienced in the presence or threat of danger.

Again those who are of the world panic when disaster is looming or is striking them. Those of us who belong unto Christ have His assurance that He will either walk through the fire with us like He did with  Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego.

He answered, “Look! I see four men untied, walking around in the midst of the fire, and they are not hurt! And the appearance of the fourth is like a son of the gods!”  Then Nebuchadnezzar approached the door of the blazing furnace and said, “Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego, servants of the Most High God, come out [of there]! Come here!” Then Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego came out of the midst of the fire. The satraps, the prefects, the governors and the king’s counselors gathered around them and saw that in regard to these men the fire had no effect on their bodies — their hair was not singed, their clothes were not scorched or damaged, even the smell of smoke was not on them Daniel 3:25-27 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Or , He will deliver us from the storm like He did His disciples.

But as they were sailing, He fell asleep. And a fierce gale of wind swept down [ as if through a wind tunnel ] on the lake, and they began to be swamped, and were in great danger. 24 They came to Jesus and woke Him, saying, “Master, Master, we are about to die!” He got up and rebuked the wind and the raging, violent waves, and they ceased, and it became calm [a perfect peacefulness]. Luke 8:23-25 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Those were real events Christian and are available unto You Jehovahs cherished child when you , in faith , call out unto Him.

I know , I have been through many furnaces and raging storms with Him in our walk towards the Heavenly home He has prepared for me.

“Knowing that I am not the one in control gives great encouragement. Knowing the One who is in control is everything.” — Alexander Michael

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-‘Immeku (The Lord Is With You) for always being there with me through my numerous trials and tribulations , sorrows and snares . Through all my pain and hardships . I could not have made it without Your comforting , reassuring and strengthening presence. I exalt You in the name of He who calmed the stroms of His disciples storms Jesus Christ . Amen

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

He is There.

HE GIVES PEACE

 

 

Turn to me [ Lord ] and be gracious to me, For I am alone and afflicted. Psalm 25:16-17 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Have you ever moved into an apartment by yourself ?

I have.

The first night the apartment seemed so big , even though it was small , dark and lonely. I prayed unto Jehovah , took out my Bible and read His reassuring words that said He is there. It was quite comforting , reassuring and blessed me with a good nights sleep.

The same thing happens to widows and widowers when their life long soul mate passes on to the other side. The loneliness is overpowering. Those who take solace in Jehovahs loving arms find peace , comfort and strength.

Have you ever moved to a different community , or to a country where they do not speak your language , have different customs and you know no one ?

I have.

It seemed so overwhelming ,scary and lonely ( indeed there were a few circumstances where there was no newspapers , radio stations or TV in my native language { this was before they had the internet } ). Boy were those some rough times. Throughout it all there was constant prayer and Jehovah blessed me with strength , courage , peace and reassurance that not only got me through it but helped me thrive in it. He kept on assuring me that He was there.

Precious child of Jehovah , whenever you feel alone and dejected take it to our Father in Heaven who loves you and cares about you so very much. Have your Bible close by. He will sometimes just envelope you in His Divine love and peace . Sometimes He will guide you to Bible Verses which will comfort , reassure , strengthen you and fill you with His love , peace , security and strength to see it through.

For the eyes of the Lord move to and fro throughout the earth so that He may support those whose heart is completely His. 2 Chronicles 16:9 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Heseh (God is love) for blessing me with Your abounding love and assurance when it seems like such a cold dark world. I praise You in the name of He who is the light of the world Jesus Christ. Amen

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

In Every Circumstance

weary

 Peace I leave with you; My [perfect] peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Do not let your heart be troubled, nor let it be afraid. [Let My perfect peace calm you in every circumstance and give you courage and strength for every challenge.] John 14 27 Holy Bible Amplified Version

It amazes me when I reflect back on my times of trouble and see the Holy Spirits awesome hand silently at work through it even though it did not feel as if He even cared much less was there . We have been through financial drought , fire of sickness, anguish of losing a loved one so very close to my heart , the strength for battle when the forces against me out numbered me and out powered me .

In every circumstance Jesus is there even though many times it does not feel like it. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Oh cherished beloved child of Jehovah take hold of this promise and clasp it close to your precious heart , especially when it feels as if He is not there , during the raging storms and tempestuous fire storms that rage in your difficulties.

Do you truly believe that Christ would suffer that beating and the agony of hanging on the cross for six long tortuous hours while His precious blood ran down His Divine body because His love for you yet desert you in you time of need ?

Nay, say I , how foolish would that be ?

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-‘Uzam ( The Lord is our Strength in Trouble) for blessing me with Your Divine strength and provision in my numerous time of trials and tribulations , sorrow and snares. I praise You in the name of He who calmed the storms for His disciples Jesus Christ. Amen

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

When I am Afraid

HE LEADS US

 When I am afraid, I will put my trust and faith in You. Psalm 56:3 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Do you remember when you were afraid of the dark ( especially after watching a late night horror movie ) ? You insisted on leaving the light on as protection from the “ boogy man “. 

We as Christians have the assurance , faith and trust in He who is the light of the world to comfort us and lead us through the dark scary times in our lives.

Do you remember how afraid you felt the first time you saw lightening and felt the ground tremble under your feet?

We as Christians have the assurance , faith and trust in He who is the solid rock that when terrible strong disasters strike out of no where He will be our strong hold to protect us through them .

Do you remember when we were children and were told to stay away from the streams and rivers during the spring thaw and the waters were raging ?

We as Christians have the assurance , faith and trust in He who places us upon the high places to safety when the floods of pains, disaster and sorrow come raging into our lives.

“Be thou a bright flame before me,|Be thou a guiding star above me,|Be thou a smooth path below me,|Be thou a kindly shepherd behind me,|Today – tonight – and for ever.” — Columba of Iona

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Ezer ( The LORD our Helper) for blessing me with Your omnipotent love , assurance , comfort and strength through out all my many times of trouble. I extol You in the name of He calmed the storm for His disciples Jesus Christ . Amen

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

We Take Comfort

fullfilled-desires

 Let your character [ your moral essence, your inner nature ] be free from the love of money [ shun greed—be financially ethical ], being content with what you have; for He has said, “I will never [ under any circumstances ] desert you [ nor give you up nor leave you without support, nor will I in any degree leave you helpless ], nor will I forsake or let you down or relax My hold on you [ assuredly not ]!”  So we take comfort and are encouraged and confidently say, “The Lord is my Helper [ in time of need ], I will not be afraid. What will man do to me?” Hebrews 13:5-6 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Do you know that study after study has proven that the more material wealth you have the more paranoid you become with losing it ?

Do you know the tremendous daily mental stress they needlessly suffer ?

Can you imagine the strain that puts upon their physical health ? How much contentment is there in that ?

“All earthly delights are but “streams.” But God is the ocean.” Jonathan Edwards

On the other hand , those of us that are blessed with a close loving relationship with Jehovah take faith and assurance that Beloved Father in Heaven will always supply our daily needs. The benefit of this is a deep appreciation for His abundant daily gifts He blesses us with. This in turn nurtures a loving relationship with Him. It is a win , win , win situation.

The difference between needs and desires are that needs is what is required to live comfortably day by day in Jehovahs grace , desires are of the flesh , are never fulfilling and destroys our spiritual walk with Christ. Joseph- Anthony; Green

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Jireh (God is our Provider) for always providing for my daily needs both great and small . I praise You in the name of He who provided for the five thousand with just a few fish and some loaves of bread Jesus Christ . Amen .

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

Enjoy a Good Nights Sleep.

TRUST IN HIM

 I lay down and slept [safely] I awakened, for the Lord sustains me. Psalms 3: 5 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Are you worried about getting a job or keeping the one you have now? Does this keep you awake at night? Place it at the feet of Jehovah and enjoy a good nights sleep.

Are you having relationship problems that are out of your control? Does this keep you awake at night? Place it at the feet of Jehovah and enjoy a good nights sleep.

Are you experiencing health problems that are out of your control? Does this keep you awake at night? Place it at the feet of Jehovah and enjoy a good nights sleep.

Having confidence and faith in Jehovah is the best sleep aid there is. Joseph- Anthony: Green

There have been many times in my life where I faced great danger as well as times where I did not know where the money was going to come in to pay the bills. Every night I would pray unto my Heavenly Beloved with a sincere heart and enjoyed a good nights sleep. In the end He walked me through the danger and always supplied for my monetary needs. This process has been repeated through the decades.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Shalom ( The Lord blesses with Peace ) with blessing me with peace, faith and assurance when I humbly place all my worries and fears at Your awesome feet. I exalt You in the name of the Prince of Peace Jesus Christ. Amen

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

A Heart at Peace.

HE GIVES PEACE

 A heart at peace gives life to the body, but envy rots the bones. Proverbs 14:30 Holy Bible, New International Version

Every morning in my prayers and at night when before bed and all throughout the day I say a prayer of thank you to my Beloved for all His daily blessings great and small. A good affect of this is there is no envy of others when they appear to have more than me. When I am grateful for Jehovahs bountiful blessings then I can easily praise others on their success in life and when they succeed in an assignment.

A grateful heart is a joyous heart. Joseph- Anthony: Green

I have seen too many destroy their mental, physical and spiritual health because of jealousy , envy and anger towards other and pity them. Their lives slowly ebb into a daily living hell.

Prayer: I praise Thee oh my Beloved Jehovah- Jireh ( God is our Provider ) for the daily inexhaustible blessings in Your loving grace bestow upon me. I praise Thee in the name of You most awesome gift unto me Jesus Christ. Amen.

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