Yield and Submit.

WE MUST LET GO

 “Now yield and submit yourself to Him [agree with God and be conformed to His will] and be at peace; In this way [you will prosper and great] good will come to you. Job 22:21 Holy Bible Amplified Version

It takes the two. It takes the two parts in this verse before you are blessed.

Number one is to stop.

Stop being independent and stubborn. Jehovah cannot and will not ever attempt to help someone who refuses help. We must yield our will and wants and submit unto Him.

The next part is just as difficult.

To submit ourselves unto Jehovah means we are to give Him total control over our lives like a horse submits to the reins of its rider.

Once these two difficult tasks are completed then come the blessing. The blessing may be a physical blessing but there is always a spiritual blessing. The spiritual blessing of course is that there is a lot less stress in your life because you trust Jehovah has control of your life. The same can be said for worry. Instead your life is filled with peace, contentment and a knowledge of security knowing we have a superior being directing and helping us live a Divine life.

Leaving it in Jehovahs hands is the better choice. He knows what He is doing while we only think we know what we are doing. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Hamelech ( Jesus my Lord King ) for blessing me with the privilege of being a humble servant of the most noble King. Please bless me to always have a submissive heart unto Your will in every aspect of my life. I give thanks for this blessing and pray for this blessing in Your majestic name. 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.

Which One do You Trust?

FALL COLOURS ALONG COUNTRY TRAIL

“The heart is deceitful above all things And it is extremely sick; Who can understand it fully and know its secret motives? Jeremiah 17: 9 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Which one do you trust?

Do you trust your heart , which is flawed and can be easily manipulated ( Just ask any man or woman who conned into a destructive relationship with a member of the opposite sex or anyone who has been scammed by the Nigerian scam . Boy am I glad I listened to Jehovah instead of my heart regarding relationships. If I had of followed my heart it would have ended up in a destructive relationship numerous times.) or do You trust Christ who truly loves you and desires what is best for you?

The mind of the flesh [with its sinful pursuits] is actively hostile to God. It does not submit itself to God’s law, since it cannot, and those who are in the flesh [ living a life that caters to sinful appetites and impulses] cannot please God. Romans 8:7-8 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Which one do you trust : the filthy lies the world tells you that you can have anything you want if you just try hard enough and believe in yourself or Jehovah who says He knows you better than you know yourself and has a specif plan for your life? Whenever someone spews this stupidity at me I just start to flap my arms. When they question what I am doing it is explained that I always wanted to fly like an eagle so going by your theory if I just try hard enough and believe in myself than I can fly. They look at me like I am an idiot and tell me that is impossible. I just smile at them and walk away. They get the point.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Rabbi (God our Teacher) for blessing me with Your Divine wisdom, strength and guidance in every aspect of my life. You have graciously steered me away from so many catastrophes and towards numerous success’. I praise You in the name of the greatest Sheppard Jesus Christ. Amen

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

It is Too Heavy

 

DELIVERANCE COMES FROM THE LORD

Cast your burden on the Lord [release it] and He will sustain and uphold you. Psalm 55:22 Holy Bible Amplified Version

We all encounter problems in our lives.

Too many of us falsely believe that we are weak if we cannot solve these challenges on our own ( especially men ).

Indeed in many countries it is considered a shame and disgrace to even admit you have a problem.

It is too heavy for you to carry on your own shoulders. That is where we Christians are blessed with an advantage over those of the world.

How many folks go to a psychiatrist with their problems only to be prescribed drugs , which of course only makes the problem worse. Look at all those who commit hienious offenses like mass murderers only to find out they were diagnosed with mental problems and were only given drugs. I have seen it numerous times in big cites.

How many go to psychiatrists only to be told it is not your fault but societies or your families while being absolved of their responsibility?

To sustain means to give support as does uphold.

The best councilor to go to is of course Jehovah. He is all wise and will help you the best and support you though the difficult experience. That will probably mean He will guide you to Christian councilors.

I have been blessed with this guidance and it was the most beneficial to me.

When you encounter problems in your life and we all will continually experience these plagues until Christ takes us to our Heavenly home ,you have a choice ; one try to deal with it on your own , good luck with that one two go to those in the world with limited knowledge , which usually is useless from those I have seen go that route or go to the best source form wisdom ,strength and healing Jehovah God Almighty. That is the most successful route I have taken as well as many others I have encountered.

Jehovah or the world choose wisely. Your life depends upon it. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Thank you YAHWEH- Ropheka : “The Lord Who Heals for blessing me with Your gently loving healing whenever I encounter any and all problems in my life whether it be through Your Divine will or whether it be through Your Divine providence to Christian guidance councilors and others that will assist me. I extol Thee in the name of the best Healer of them all 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.

You are Precious in My Sight

gods-love

  “Because you are precious in My sight, You are honored and I love you. Isaiah 43:4 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Earthly lovers such as your parents or husband or wife, or siblings or friends will always let you down. Welcome to life.

But there is one with whom you are always love , cherished and adored. His name is Jehovah. He loved you so much He allowed His most cherished Son to die a slow agonizing humiliating death on a cross for you.

Of course if you desert Him , He will desert you. Being loved by Him does not permit you license to abuse Him by continually , willingly living a sinful life.

There has been so many occasions when I was communing with Him that He graciously favoured me with but a minute flalvour of His awesome love. Every molecule in my body was electrified and my heart could not stop shouting : “ I love You my Beloved , I love You. “

There is no sex , drugs or other material fleshly desires that can even begin to compare with this incredible experience.

Then , there are other times when it is sweet , gentle and reassuring that fills me with peace , comfort , love and joy. He truly is an awesome God.

It is amazing to know that one such as the Almighty loves a sinner such as me. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: I exalt You Jehovah Heseh (God is love) my cherished Beloved for the most treasured blessing in my existence , that of relishing an amazing loving relationship with You. I praise You for this cherished gift in the name of my Beloved Saviour whose blood made it all possible Jesus Christ. Amen

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

If You Do This.

when-i-pray

 Trust in and rely confidently on the Lord with all your heart
And do not rely on your own insight
or understanding. Proverbs 3:5 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Here is perhaps the most important advice to be given in your life: “ Wait and pray. “

Before you sign any contract ask for a copy of it to take home to read over it. You will avoid the pressure sales talk that way which can and does lead to disaster. If they refuse to allow you this right do not walk away , run. The only reason they will refuse to allow you to study it is because it is a bad contract. They are experts and making poo poo look like sugar and prey upon foolish suckers.

A wise man depends upon Jehovah for guidance , a foolish man depends upon his own faulty thinking. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Before you read it , humbly pray for the Holy Spirits guidance. When you read it He will point out things that you do not understand or find acceptable. High light them with a marker. Then put it down and again, pray for understanding of what you do not understand and how to wisely discuss it with the other party to meet your satisfactory requirements and sit silently for His answer. Wait and pray before you sign on the dotted line. He may not answer you right away but be patient, He will answer you. When He answers you, write it down. Then , when you encounter the one making the offer have faith that His wisdom will secure you a favourable contract.

This is my modus operandi and it has prevented me from entering into many disastrous contracts.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah KalEl (voice of God) for blessing me with Your voice through the Holy Spirit when negotiating all contracts. Through this blessing You have prevented me from enslaving me in noxious contracts with snakes in the grass. I praise You in the name of He who saw through the shams of the Scribes and Pharisee’s Jesus Christ. Amen.

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