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.

Once Forgiven , Always Forgiven.

his-mercy

 As far as the east is from the west, So far has He removed our transgressions from us. Psalm 103:12 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Even though you have become a Christian do you still beat yourself up over the wicked lifestyle that you participated in before you came to Christ?

Why?

Have you repented of them ( Repent means admitting what you did was wrong – especially to those you have wronged if possible . Then apologizing for it. After that you must ask for forgiveness. ) . Then stop beating yourself up.

Jesus’ motto is ; ‘ Once forgiven , always forgiven. “

So , if Jesus does not beat you up why would you waste your time doing it?

There is no sin that cannot be forgiven when you repent. Joseph- Anthony: Green

“Blessed [forgiven, refreshed by God’s grace] are those who mourn [over their sins and repent], for they will be comforted [when the burden of sin is lifted]. Matthew 5:4 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Sometimes even though Jehovah has forgiven your sins , you must still pay retribution to those whom you have wronged. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Sometimes even though you have repented you must still pay retribution for your sins to society . So for example , say you got drunk , got in an accident and crippled someone , you must still pay retribution to those you have injured and justifiably do prison time.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Hashopet (The Lord is the supreme Judge) for sanctifying me ( which means making you holy ) through the horrifying bloody sacrifice of Your most beloved son Jesus Christ. I am eternally grateful for this unwarranted gift and worship You in whose blood my filthy sins were cleansed 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.

Cheers Him Up.

helping-others

 “An anxious heart weighs a man down, but a kind word cheers him up. “ Proverbs 12:25 Holy Bible Amplified Version

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

We have all encountered those around us that are suffering. How many have reached out and touched them with healing kindness ?

How can we help them ?

The best thing to do is to show you care by listening to their problems ( Jehovah takes the time to listen to our problems should we not emulate Him by doing the same for those that are suffering around us ? ) .

We are not just talking about the homeless .

We are talking about those that are suffering a disease . Yes , for many , going into a hospital is an uncomfortable experience but how comfortable do you think it is for them. Why not go in and reminisce with them about the good ol days . Why not go in with some photo’s of happy times . Speaking from experience you will be amazed at the amount of good you accomplish.

We are talking about those who are having difficulty in their studies or at work. Those of us who are older can relate and provide encouraging words to strengthen , guide them and encourage them. What about those that are experiencing relationship problems like with marriage or children? Again , those of us who are older have walked that walk and can provide positive affirmation to them by our experiences which will guide them , strengthen them and reassure them .

There are so many other opportunities available unto you Christian. All you have to do is be available , pray and be obedient unto Jehovahs guidance where your help is needed.

Prayer: Please Jehovah-Machsi – Lord my Refuge bless me with the opportunity to be a refuge unto those enduring trials and tribulations , sorrows and snares just as You are for me. Bless me with Your divine wisdom , grace , meekness and humbleness to help them as You have aboundingly done for me . I humbly request this in the name of He who was a refuge to the poor , the sick and the weak when He walked amongst us Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Which do You Desire ?

young-and-old-all-need-love

 Pursue love, and desire spiritual gifts. 1 Corinthians 14:1 Holy Bible, New King James Version

Are you a slave?

We are constantly bombarded on TV , the radio , in magazines and in society that we are nothing if we do not have the latest toys and gadgets. Have we not all seen the long line up where folks sometimes camp out to get the latest mobile phone? What is wrong with the old one ? Well , you will not fit in with the “ in crowd “ if you do not have it..

What is the root of it all ?

Pride.

These are of course very expensive which most people cannot afford. Do not worry as the dealer will give you easy credit in easy payments. The problem is that you end up making so may of these : easy payments “ that you cannot pay your bills or put food on the table.

I have seen people in soup kitchens because they cannot afford food. They cannot afford food because they just bought this expensive new toy or got a new tattoo.

After the glow of the new toy wheres off the need another toy fix do they go out and buy more stuff they do not need nor can afford. They are as bad as drug addicts. Most are quite unhappy and downright miserable.

That which they love has made them into a slave.

On the other hand there are the wise ones that relish their relationship with Jehovah. They are filled with love and the only way to become richer in love is to share it.

The only way to share it is to be blessed by Jehovah with spiritual gifts which they share with others. We are constantly requesting and thanking our Beloved when we share these in abundance with us.

The world looks at us as if we are crazy but we know who the real crazy one are don’t we?

Which do you desire ?

The so called pleasure of the world which enslaves you , leaves you unsatisfied and empty and makes you want more like a junkie or the spiritual gifts that fill our every core with amazing Heavenly love and leaves you feeling euphoric .

Prayer: Praise You Jehovah Heseh (God is love) for the most amazing gift of Your Heavenly love and the spiritual gifts to share them with the lost , empty souls that are enslaved in the material world. May You bless us with unlimited opportunities to share them so as to bless others with coming into the only satisfying life there every can be. I exalt You in the name of He who we attempt to emulate His love Jesus Christ . Amen

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

Can You Be Still?

heart-at-peace

 “ Be still and know (recognize, understand) that I am God. “ Psalm 46:10 Holy Bible Amplified Version

I believe one of the greatest problems in western society today is business.We are so busy with our jobs , families and past times that there is no room for daily communion with Jehovah.

Spending daily time with Jehovah is the best stress reliever there is. Joseph- Anthony: Green

The consequence of this is broken families where there are strangers living in the same house or apartment. This expands into our neighbourhoods , cities, provinces and countries. How many folks know their neighbours ?

How many folks know anything about the souls living in a different part of their country ?

As well, you destroy your mental , spiritual and physical health when you are constantly busy.

I cherish the time spent every day with my Beloved. Many times He reveals His attributes to me that expands my love , admiration and respect for Him. An added benefit is that there is a peace and security that lasts all day from that morning commune with Him.

How can you love a stranger ?

If you spend no time with Jehovah then how can you know Him ? If you do not know Him then how can you love Him?

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Pryyand- God is my friend for graceful kindness in spending time with me every day . It is the most cherished part of my day . I extol You in the name of my best friend Jesus Christ . Amen .

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

Who Has the Greatest Authority?

I TRUST GOD


 I sought the Lord [on the authority of His word], and He answered me. Psalm 34:4 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Who has the greatest authority ?

When you need answers to lifes problems who do you think has the greatest authority ( wisdom ) : Jehovah or a psychiatrist ? Jehovah is all wise while the psychiatrist is based upon human wisdom which is faulty. Therefore, which one do you think is the best choice to go to when you have problems ( now Jehovah may guide you to Bible centred therapists and or help groups.

When you need financial advice who do you believe has the greatest authority ( wisdom ) Jehovah who is concerned about your welfare or a financial advisor who is concerned about his commission and the financial institutional profits he works for ? Now Jehovah may guide you to Bible centred financial advisors.

Therefore when you encounter any and all problems in life should you not seek out the greatest authority ( wisdom ) and of course that is Jehovah hands down every time. When you ask , you must ask in faith and be prepared to obey His guidance or else why waste your time and His ?

You can see God from anywhere if your mind is set to love and obey Him. –A.W. Tozer

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Rabbi (God our Teacher) for Your Divine intercession with Your ultimate wisdom , strength and providence to bring resolution to all my problems. I exalt You in the name of He who taught His disciples amazingly Jesus Christ . Amen

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