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

Has Gone Through Suffering and Testing

Since he himself has gone through suffering and testing, he is able to help us when we are being tested. Hebrews 2:18 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Many folks feel it is senseless to come to Christ with our worries, hurts and problems because He is the big god in Heaven and does not care about mere mortals.

Yes He does.

There is not one crisis that you encounter that Christ has not been through.

He experienced the death of a good friend, was betrayed by another. He experienced homelessness and hunger. He was rejected by loved ones and was hated by the politically correct, even though He was trying to help them. He helped so many yet so few thanked Him. Even then, it was outsiders that thanked Him and not those in His national family ( the Jews ) . And of course, let us not forget the temptation in the wilderness when He was weak, hungry and exhausted.

No matter the situation, Jesus has been there, Jesus cares and when you depend upon Him, He will guide you through them all. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: It is with the greatest gratitude that I thank you Jesus Immanuel (God is with us John 15:1-27 ) that You have suffered like we do and so much more. Because of this, who better to run to when lifes tragedies come crashing down upon us.

Thank You.

Thank you for always being there.

Thank you for Your gentle, soft reassurance during these difficult times.

Thank you for Your encouragement, strength and guidance in resolving these catastrophes.

It is in Your magnificent loving name I exalt You. Amen May you always run to the loving arms of Christ when calamity comes a crashing through your door. Joseph a son of Jehovah T

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

Smash the Chains.

So Christ has truly set us free. Now make sure that you stay free, and don’t get tied up again in slavery Galatians 5:1 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Have you ever seen paintings of slaves being led in chains.

That is what sin is and destructive addiction.

When we accept Christ as our Savior, He smashes the chains of slavery.

Now that does not mean we can go out and do what ever we want, that will just lead us back into the chains of slavery again.

What it means is that now we are free will servants of Christ. What ever Jesus asks us to do is either for our own good or for the good of others.

Not all chains will be smashed right away.

That would be too much freedom for us to handle.

Some chain may take decades to be smashed and some never be until we reach Heavens Gate.

That is good though as it keeps us dependent on Christ. The more He frees us, the more we love Him. The more we love Him the more we desire to serve Him.

Jesus is the best freedom fighter there is. He always has 100% victory. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Keren Yishi (Psalms 18:2 The LORD the Horn of My Salvation ) for blessing me with Your salvation from terrible addictions, disastrous dispositions and the marvelous freedom that only You can provide. I exalt You in the name of He who is victorious over satan and death, Jesus Christ. AMEN

May Gods sunshine always bless you with brightening your day with His love, joy and peace. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Oh Jehovah Shalom

Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. Philippians 4:6 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Prayer: Oh Jehovah Shalom (The Lord blesses with Peace Isaiah 9:6, Rom 8:31-35 ) I thank you so much that I can always come to you with whatever is upsetting me. Every time You calm me down with Your gentle loving Divine peace and then softly speak to me and help relieve the stress I am experiencing.

Then You wisely explain the answer to all my questions and stressful situations. I am grateful that You have taught me to always come to You before I take any action.

I praise You in the name of the Prince of Peace Jesus Christ. Amen

Those who pray first, wait for the Lords answer and then be obedient unto His instruction have a lot less stress in their lives. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Please Jehovah ELOHIM YAKOL

Don’t leave me to the mercy of my enemies, for I have done what is just and right. Psalm 119:121 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Prayer: Please Jehovah ELOHIM YAKOL (God, the Most Able 2 Corinthians 9:8 ) enable me to endure with grace, peace and strength the unwarranted vicious slings and arrows hurled at me by the wicked when they are self righteously throwing insults and false accusations at me.

Thank you that I can always find comfort, reassurance and love in Your gentle loving arms. I sincerely request this in the name of He who found Your strength on the hill on the lonely night before His crucifixion for doing nothing wrong, Jesus Christ. Amen

May you always be blessed to find comfort and encouragement in our loving Heavenly Poppa’s arms. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Please Jehovah Jehovah Tsori

O our God, won’t you stop them? We are powerless against this mighty army that is about to attack us. We do not know what to do, but we are looking to you for help.” 2 Chronicles 20:12 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Prayer: Please Jehovah Jehovah Tsori ( Lord my Strength Psalm 19:14 ) help me.

You know my weaknesses and how to strengthen them.

Where I am wavering please send the Holy Spirits strong hand to hold me up. I do not need the worlds feeble efforts to strengthen me when I have Your supreme power with in me.

Please open my eyes to see the wonderful things You are doing in my life and through it.

When the world points its self righteous fingers at me in condemnation, my precious Jesus, show me Your pierced hands to show me Your loving forgiveness when I repent.

I desire nothing of the emptiness the world considers valuable but rather I prefer the riches of Thy precious love.

Please increase my faith every moment of every day. Always remind me to come unto You for strength and wisdom and perseverance. Your way is the way to victory.

May I always follow the path You have chosen for me to walk, no matter how difficult, no matter if I cannot see where it is leading me in the situation I am in. I know it ultimately leads to victory.

It is in the name of my victorious King Jesus Christ that I humbly present this request unto You. Amen

May you always walk hand in hand with the Holy Spirit all the way to our Heavenly home. Joseph a son of Jehovah

As the Holy Spirit Has

We think you ought to know, dear brothers and sisters, about the trouble we went through in the province of Asia. We were crushed and overwhelmed beyond our ability to endure, and we thought we would never live through it. In fact, we expected to die. But as a result, we stopped relying on ourselves and learned to rely only on God, who raises the dead. 2 Corinthians 1:8b,9 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ‘Immeku ( The Lord Is With You Judges 6:12 ) that You are always there to comfort me through the roughest of storms of sorrow and hardships and the hottest of the desert blazing sands of temptations. Please bless me with the opportunity to pay back to You by being a comforter to someone going through the rough seas or the strongest desert storms. I humbly request this in the name of He who quieted the raging seas in the boat with His disciples Jesus Christ. Amen

May you comfort and encourage others as the Holy Spirit has for you. Joseph a son of Jehovah
