No One can Hurt Your

No one can hurt your feelings without your consent. No one can make you angry, disappointed, intimidated, or jealous.

Substitute any reactive emotion with the wisdom, strength and self control of The Holy Spirit. Whatever it is, no one can afflict you with it without your consent.

You can choose to see things differently when you depend upon The Holy Spirit to open your eyes to Jehovahs meaning instead of societies or your own faulty reasoning. It’s the only one you’ll ever need.

The people we interact with become how we treat them, more than we’d like to admit. That is why wicked company corrupts godly souls while godly souls mould us more into Christs character.

Where there are no boundaries in life, there is no respect for either you nor those around you. Joseph a son of Jehovah

May The Holy Spirit keep you from the wicked who drag you into the pig mire and guide you to the godly who help you transform into a beautiful child of Jehovah Joseph a son of Jehovah

I Never Blame Anyone in My Life.

I never blame anyone in my life. Good people bless me with happiness. Bad people bless me with experience. Worst people bless me with a lesson. And best people bless me with memories.

F-E-A-R has two meanings: ‘Forget Everything And Run’ or ‘Face Everything And Rise.’ The one will enslave you while the other matures you. The choice is yours.

There are always people in my life who treat me wrong. I am grateful to them because they drive me into Jesus’ loving arms and we grow ever closer because of the abusers.

Our most painful experiences blesses us with the most important lessons in life. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Failure is my teacher, not my accuser. I have matured more and learned more in failures than in successes. That is why I am grateful for my failures. Many times failure is a detour, not a dead-end street.

The problem with pity parties is very few people come, and those who do don’t bring presents. It is time to put on the big girl or big boy panties and grow up.

The more I am grateful for what I have, the more I will have to be grateful for.

When I am sincere, praise is effective. When I am insincere, it is manipulative.

The most important persuasion tool I have in my entire arsenal is The Holy Spirit’s guidance and my obedience. Unless I have a heart that is willing and obedient unto The Holy Spirit, I will never realize the maximum potential that lies within me.

The greatest of all mistakes is to not trust and obey The Holy Spirit because I think I can only do a little. He knows my capability better than I do.

I remember that failure is an event, not a person.

Everybody says they want to be free. There is no freedom. You are either a slave to a devil or an obedient child of Jehovah. One curses with constant misery while the other blesses with Divine love. The Holy Spirit is the most influential person I will talk to all day.

People often say motivation doesn’t last. Neither does bathing. That is why it is recommended I go to the best motivator every day. His name is Jesus.

The foundation stones for a successful, meaningful life is prayer, Bible reading, having good Christian mentors and obedience unto The Holy Spirits guidance.

May the Holy Spirit guide you to a successful, meaningful life all the way to Heavens Gate. Joseph a son of Jehovah

I Was Pressured Greatly To

Do not love this world nor the things it offers you, for when you love the world, you do not have the love of the Father in you. 1 John 2:15 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Being a bit of an old geezer, I have seen oh so many fads come and go.

There was the hippy generation, the disco generation, the punk generation, and I have no idea what the generations from the nine teen nineties are called.

During one of them I was pressured greatly to conform to their lifestyle. I was bullied and laughed at a lot because of my refusal to join in the fun times.

It is interesting to see them now. They realize that lifestyle was meaningless.

Reflecting back on my walk with Christ in that time there are moments of pure ecstasy, there were many moments of suffering which brought me ever closer into Christ’s loving arm and engaged my trust in Him my adoration in Him, my love for Him and my dedication in service unto Him. This was good and pleasing unto my cherished Father in Heaven, King in Heaven and amazing tutor ( The Holy Spirit ) .

Mind you, this transformation will continue even in our Heavenly Home so do not think you are a finished product.

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. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect. Romans 12:2 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

“I came to Him because I did not know which way to turn. I remained with Him because there is no other way I wish to turn. I came to Him longing for something I did not have. I remain with Him because I have something I will not trade. I came to Him as a stranger. I remain with Him in the most intimate of friendships. I came to Him unsure about the future. I remain with Him certain about my destiny. “Ravi Zacharias

Prayer: Oh my Beloved Jehovah Bara (The Lord Creator Isaiah 40:28 ) thank you for Your patient transformation of this rough piece of clay into the beautiful creation You intend for me to be. I look forward to experiencing what the finished product will be in Heaven. I extol Thee in the name of He who took twelve rag tag hilly billy boys from Galilee into a fire that set the world aflame two thousand years ago, Jesus Christ. Amen.

May you allow yourself to be transformed into a Heavenly creation. Joseph a son of Jehovah

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.

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

Saved From What?

“In returning [to Me] and rest you shall be saved, In quietness and confident trust is your strength.” Isaiah 30:15 The Holy Bible, The Amplified Version

When we repent we and we are turning back to loving and be obedient unto the Lord, we are saved.

Saved from what?

Well for one thing we are saved from making stupid choices that only leads to heartache, suffering mentally, physically and emotionally.

We are saved from suffering from insomnia.

We are saved from addictions which are cruel masters which enslave us and cause terrible pain both mentally and physically.

I have both seen it and experienced it so do testify of the truth of these words.

We are of course saved from the most horrible affliction of all: an eternity in Hell.

Going your own way leads to Hell. Going Christ’s way leads to Heaven. Be careful of your choices because you will be receiving the consequences of them for an eternity. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Yasha ( Lord my Savior – Isaiah 49:26 ) for saving me from myself, from the devil and his lackeys, from bad company, from addictive behavior and most importantly from and eternity in Hell, which is what life without You is. I exalt You in the name of He whose blood was the price of my salvation Jesus Christ. Amen

‘May the Lord bless you and protect you.  May the Lord smile on you  and be gracious to you. May the Lord show you his favor and give you his peace.’ Numbers 6:22-27 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Never Mind Telling Them.

“Look, I now teach you these decrees and regulations just as the Lord my God commanded me, so that you may obey them in the land you are about to enter and occupy. Obey them completely, and you will display your wisdom and intelligence among the surrounding nations. When they hear all these decrees, they will exclaim, ‘How wise and prudent are the people of this great nation!’ For what great nation has a god as near to them as the Lord our God is near to us whenever we call on him? And what great nation has decrees and regulations as righteous and fair as this body of instructions that I am giving you today? Deuteronomy 4:5-8 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Do you notice that it is when the Israelite’s lived according to Jehovahs instructions that the surrounding nations became intrigued by them?

So too it is to be with us in our quest to bring others into Jehovahs family.

I hear so many preachers say we must evangelize the world to bring everyone to Jesus and we must share Jesus with the world.

Never mind telling them, the most effective way to bring others to Christ is by living the Christian life. When others see you are different from the rest of society they will be curious. THEN, you can share what Jesus has done in your life and through your life.

A Christian must walk the walk before they talk the talk. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Those whose hearts are receptive will move towards Christ while those who prefer living in darkness will walk away. Do not go after those who walk away. Leave that to the Holy Spirit to move their hearts towards Jesus. If they will not listen to the Holy Spirit, they sure will not listen to you.

Prayer: Please Jehovah GELAH RAZ ( the God of the Revealer of Mysteries Colossians 1:26 ) bless me to live a life that emulates Your beloved son Jesus Christ so that when others see this mysterious manner of living they will be drawn towards me and I can be blessed with sharing the simple truth of the blessing of being a loved child of Yours, which is a mystery to the dark world. I humbly beseech Thee in the name of the Light of love in this dark world, Jesus Christ. Amen

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 to be shared with others. May you be blessed with plentiful opportunities to share these with those around you today. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Keeping Our Eyes On

 We do this by keeping our eyes on Jesus, the champion who initiates and perfects our faith Hebrews 12:2 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

I have travelled a lot and taken only two routes.

The first one was to wing it. Let’s just go and see where the road will take us. Although it was adventurous, it was also very dangerous at times and there were many times I had to back track.

On the other hand, when I followed a map the journey was a lot less stressful and unnecessarily complicated.

Once we become Christians we depend upon Jesus to lead us where our Heavenly King desires His free will servant to go. During the journey He initiates circumstances which will strengthen our faith, trust, in Him. This causes us to trust Him more, respect Him more, appreciate Him more and most importantly, to love Him more.

How can you see where you are going? With keeping your eyes on the map and Jesus is the map? Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Roi (Psalms 23:1 The LORD My Shepherd ) for constantly guiding this gullible sheep that could easily be led astray if left on my own. Thank you for blessing me with fine tuning me to be ever more mature every day. I praise You in Your wise name. Amen

May love be in your life, may hope be in your heart and may peace be in your every day walk with Christ. Joseph a son of Jehovah T
