Be Thankful

In every situation [no matter what the circumstances] be thankful and continually give thanks to God; for this is the will of God for you in Christ Jesus.1 Thessalonians 5:18 Holy Bible Amplified Version

I desired to make raised flower beds for my aged mother who can no longer bend over to work in her flower beds and she loves her flower beds and working in them. I wanted ten skids and my friend suggested he could get a truck and we could pick them up the next day, but because the truck he wanted to borrow was not available he phoned and informed me we could only get three.

There was disappointment and anger in my heart because we agreed upon ten.

After talking with Jehovah became I became grateful for what was given and for my friends help and waited for him to come pick me up the next day to get the skids.

The friend showed up with five skids in the back of his SUV the next afternoon. When we went to the place where the skids were supposed to be they were all gone. He drove to the place where he saw the skids on the side of the road during his morning walk and we got five more.

Because of that the raised garden could be made ( even though it was not as big as I wanted. I wanted to build a pyramid raised garden but the skids were too small).

As well there was enough skids to use as the base to make another bigger raised garden using a discarded dresser drawer. Another blessing was Jehovah giving me an idea on how to make more raised gardens as a border for our flower beds using materials around the house that I never thought of.

As a consequence there was not a need for so many skids.

When we desire something but Jehovah does not give us what we want but are to still be appreciative. Then Jehovah multiplies His blessings upon us.

A faithful (right-minded) man will abound with blessings. Proverbs 28:20 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Jireh (God is our Provider) for providing for me the material necessary to build a monument of love towards Your cherished daughter, my mother and for the brother who graciously helped me. I thank You in the name of He who was grateful for the blessings of the disciples You sent unto Him Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Do Not be Afraid.

 ‘Do not fear [anything], for I am with you; Do not be afraid, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, be assured I will help you; I will certainly take hold of you with My righteous right hand [a hand of justice, of power, of victory, of salvation].’ “Indeed, all those who are angry with you will be put to shame and humiliated; Those who strive against you will be as nothing and will perish. Isaiah 41:10-11 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

When you experience Jehovah calling you out into the unknown do not be afraid. This of course is easier said then done.

For me I used to call out and say as the man said to Jesus: “ I believe, help me in my unbelief.” In essence he was saying I know You can do it but there are still doubts, please help me conquer my doubts.” There is nothing wrong with that. It is being perfectly honest with Jehovah which is what He desires of us.

Of course the longer we walk into the unknown with our Master the more trust we have in Him.

Do you notice how it says to take hold of His right hand?

The right hand signified supreme authority, Divine blessing, strength, justice and power.

So Jehovah is informing you to freely and confidently call upon His right hand to deliver Divine justice while abundantly pouring out His majestic strength and power into your spirit to conquer any wicked ones that stupidly attack one who belongs to the Supreme King. Of course we see the results at the final passage and it will not be pleasant to your attackers.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Helech ‘Olam (The Lord our King Forever) for blessing this humble child of Your with Your limitless strength, provisions, justice, provisions and wisdom while following the path You have chosen for me to take to the Heavenly home You have prepared for me to take. I exalt You in the name of He who depended upon Your Divine strength to walk all the way to the cross for me Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Are You Calling Jehovah a Liar?

 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]!” Hebrews 13:5 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Are you calling Jehovah a liar?

Notice how He said for He will NEVER desert us nor forsake us. . That is a direct promise from Him unto us.

To forsake us means turn away from entirely. That is like saying you turn your back on someone. Jehovah will never turn His back on you as long as you never turn your back on Him. He will see your daily needs and supply you with them. Sometimes He will abundantly, sometimes frugally but always supply your daily needs.

If you turn your back on Him and refuse to obey Him then He most certainly will turn His back on you ( read about it in the Old Testament before the Israelites and Judeans were destroyed by the Chaldeans and Babylonians ).

It is not that Jehovah walks away from you but that you have walked away and turned your back on Him. Joseph son of Jehovah

To desert us means to leave usually without intent to return. That means to walk away from someone.

As long as you do not walk away from Jehovah, He will not walk away from you. He will never walk away from you when you are experiencing difficulties.

When you doubt your circumstances outcome you doubt that He will provide for you. That is calling Him a liar.

Notice how we are commanded to be content with what we have. That means we are not to be suckers and foolishly go out and get into debt ( which is becoming a slave by the way) buying things we do not need like a new car when there is nothing wrong with the old one, or buying a house you cannot afford or buying a new mobile phone just because it has some new gadget this year when there is nothing wrong with the old one. These things are a form of gluttony and pride. Both of them are disgusting unto Jehovah.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Emunah (God is faithful) for always being faithful unto Your word to this loved child of Yours. I take great comfort and strength in Your Holy Word. I praise you in the name of the greatest Word of truth Jesus Christ. Amen

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

He Knows.

 

Declaring the end and the result from the beginning Isaiah 46:10 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Do not worry, Jehovah knew these things would happen from the beginning of time. He knows everything.

The difference is that when we obey His commands He knows the blessings He will generously shower upon us. He knows the hard times we will encounter so He knows the strength, wisdom, guidance and support we will need and bountifully provides for us. It makes Him very joyful to help and share with the children He adores so much.

When we are disobedient unto Him He knows the pain and sorrow it will bring to us. No, He will not cause bad things to happen to us because He is a loving God. However He allows us to reap the rewards for our disobedience. This causes Him to weep bitterly ( bitterly means to weep with a lot of pain).

A wise man obeys Jehovahs commands and is rewarded accordingly. A fool scoffs at Jehovahs commands and reaps the consequences. Joseph son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Rohi ( Jesus is our Divine Shepherd ) for blessing me with Your firm, steady hand through the path of life You have wisely chosen for me. I exalt Thee in the name of He who is the path to Shepherds me all the way to Heaven Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

We Can be a Superman.

 

And [so that you will begin to know] what the immeasurable and unlimited and surpassing greatness of His [active, spiritual] power is in us who believe. These are in accordance with the working of His mighty strength Ephesians 1:19 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

We can be a superman or a superwoman.

No we will not be able to leap tall buildings in a single bound, no we will not be faster than a speeding bullet not stronger than steel.

We have free and plentiful supplies every day of the power from the Holy Spirit.

This super power will enable us to be patient when we want to scream at someone or something.

This super power will bless us with astounding wisdom which will make scammers and scammers look like fools whenever they foolishly attempt to entrap us.

This super power will enable us to love when the world says to hate.

This super power will enable us to forgive when the world says we should extract vengeance.

This super power is exclusively available unto Jehovahs children when we ask for it and obey the Fathers commands on how to receive it.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ‘Izoa Hakaboth ( The Lord Strong and Mighty ) for blessing me with Your Divine strength to walk as a loving obedient child of Yours through this dark cold world. I extol Thee 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.

Walk in Union with Him.

 Therefore as you have received Christ Jesus the Lord, walk in [union with] Him [reflecting His character in the things you do and say—living lives that lead others away from sin]. Colossians 2:6 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

How are we supposed to walk in union with Christ?

The first step is to pray for revelation with a sincere heart so we may be blessed with Holy communion with Him.

The second step is to read our Bible, read Christian literature and listen to Christian teachers as they expound upon Christs character and the Holy Spirits transformation of us into union with His Divine character.

This is a life time exercise that must become second nature to us in every aspect of our daily lives.

The more obedient we are to the Holy Spirits guidance the more He resides within us.

“True religion is a union of God with the soul, a real participation of the divine nature, the very image of God drawn upon the soul, or in the apostle’s phrase, it is Christ formed in us.” Henry Scougal

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Pryyand (God is my friend) for blessing me with the most incredible friendship possible. I cherish every moment we spend together. I praise You in the name of my best friend with whom I adore Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Constantly Rejoicing in Hope.

 Constantly rejoicing in hope [because of our confidence in Christ], steadfast and patient in distress, devoted to prayer [continually seeking wisdom, guidance, and strength] Romans 12: 12 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Having hope in this instance refers to having confidence in Jehovah.

In every aspect of my life , no matter how difficult I have complete and total confidence in Him. Even, when I do not understand what is happening or why.

Depending upon the Holy Spirit during crisis’ blesses me with being as steady as a rock. Somethings it will teeter and totter back and forth but never lose its firm footing.

Depending upon the Holy Spirit during this time also expands my patience. Many times it is only by His grace alone that disaster is averted. Devotion to prayer has become such an integral part of my day that I feel totally uncomfortable all day if I do not begin it with morning prayers.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Immanuel (God is with us) for blessing me with Your Divine presence through out my life. I have complete and total confidence in Your guidance and care for this, Your cherished child. Thank you for blessing me with sharing loving conversations with me every day. I extol Thee in the name of He who is always with me Jesus Christ. Amen.

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