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.

I am Vindicated.

DEVINE COVENANT

  And you shall know [with an understanding based on personal experience] that I am the Lord; For they shall not be put to shame who wait and hope expectantly for Me. Isaiah 49:23 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Have you ever experienced confirmation from Jehovah from a Bible Verse or from Christians councilors of a certain event that is going to occur in your life?

I have.

Everybody laughed at me and informed me it was certain failure to attempt to follow Christs lead. In all honesty when this first began I doubted myself the outcome. In due course of time Christ did indeed accomplish in me and through me His Divine purpose in my life and through my life.

Now when my Beloved informs me of an impossible occurrence that will happen in my life I have confidence in His providential completion of it. The wonderful thing though, is that He never does it in a predictable manner. I believe this is so no one can claim it is just a coincidence. I always laugh and say: “ You are truly an awesome God and Your ways are so much higher than mine my Love.” with reverential love and joy.

I believe Jehovah does the impossible in strange ways to remind us of just how awesome He truly is. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Now faith is the assurance (title deed, confirmation) of things hoped for (divinely guaranteed), and the evidence of things not seen [the conviction of their reality—faith comprehends as fact what cannot be experienced by the physical senses]. Hebrews 11:1 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Rohi ( Jesus is our Divine Shepherd ) for the amazing manner in which You have led and helped this sheep of Yours to accomplish incredible things for the glory of Your kingdom and the enlargement of it through those You have blessed me with guiding them unto You. I glorify You in You magnificent name. Amen.

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

What is Your Purpose in Life?

chief-duty

And we know [with great confidence] that God [who is deeply concerned about us] causes all things to work together [as a plan] for good for those who love God, to those who are called according to His plan and purpose. Romans 8:28 Holy Bible Amplified Version

At some time during our lives we all ask what is your purpose in life. Many go from one career to another , one relationship to another , one hobby to another searching for the meaning in their life. Each failure brings them deeper and deeper into depression , frustration and confusion. How many have committed suicide because they felt life had nothing to offer them.

Those of us who are Christ’s free servants do not experience this once we have surrendered our wills and life unto Him. He slowly pulls back the curtain to reveal His Divine plan for our lives. It may not be glamorous or famous but we experience , peace , contentment and joy because we know our purpose in life. Now as we progress in our walk He may move us from one purpose to another. The first purpose was teaching us and preparing us for the next step He has prepared for us.

For me He has moved me four times in thirty years. Reflecting back I laugh because during each one I was unaware that He was using it to prepare me for the next.

If you are one of the ones described in the first paragraph why not completely surrender your will and life unto an amazing Heavenly King and watch the amazing things He will accomplish in your life as well.

There is within every soul a thirst for happiness and meaning.” — Thomas Aquinas

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Christ -Helech ‘Olam (The Lord our King Forever) for the santification of being Your Holy servant and for guiding me unto the service You have prepared for me in Thy Holy Kingdom. In Your amazing name I humbly give thanks. Amen

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

I Will Rebuke the Devourer.

cannot-outrun

Bring all the tithes (the tenth) into the storehouse, so that there may be food in My house, and test Me now in this,” says the Lord of hosts, “if I will not open for you the windows of heaven and pour out for you [so great] a blessing until there is no more room to receive it. Then I will rebuke the devourer (insects, plague) for your sake and he will not destroy the fruits of the ground, nor will your vine in the field drop its grapes [before harvest],” says the Lord of hosts. Malachi 3:10-11 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Rebuke means to criticize (someone) so as to correct a fault. The fault in this case being our selfishness.

In the ancient world the people were mostly farmers and would starve because of flood , drought , insects and plant disease devourer their crops. In todays world the devourer is materialism , and vanity. Joseph- Anthony: Green

We do not need to give one tenth of our wages unto the Lord if we cannot afford it but we can give of our time instead. There are numerous opportunities available to us such as visiting seniors either those that are living alone or those in a retirement home. We can offer to help worthy groups such as Habitat for Humanity.

I do not believe doing something like walking for cancer sufficient , after all , that is just a one day event. Our offerings should be weekly.

Jehovah is more pleased with your weekly giving from your heart , not your wallet. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Jireh (God is our Provider) for blessing me with countless occasions to serve You through service to the local community. I anticipate the wonderful privileges You will offer in the future to serve You. I adore You in the name of He who served as a living sacrifice unto me for the blessing to be a member of Your Holy family Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Your Comforts Delight Me.

he-gives-peace

 When my anxious thoughts multiply within me, Your comforts delight me. Psalm 94:19 Holy Bible Amplified Version.

I recently heard a report about mental illness that stated one in five folks suffer from mental illness such as depression.

Why do you want to poison your mind and body with chemicals ( some like those with ADHS do require daily medication ) to treat this ailment?

Why not go to the best source for mental healing?

His name is Jehovah and He is deeply in love with you.

When you pour your heart out to Him when suffering depression , anguish, anger and confusion He will guide you.

He may guide you to Bible verses which encourage and strengthen you , He may guide you to resources like Christian therapists or guidance councillors which will help you deal with the core issues and help you make the right decisions.

As your healing begins and continues you will become more and more delighted with the results.

This will increase your love , respect and admiration for our amazing Heavenly Fathers love for you.

It sickens me to hear these liars spew forth this nonsense that if you just believe in yourself and try harder you will succeed.

That is wrong, misguided , satanic and downright evil.

Even if I believe in myself and try real hard I will not grown wings and fly like an eagle.

Follow the worlds advice and increase your suffering or follow Jehovahs advice and be eternally healed. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Rabbi (God our Teacher) for blessing me with Your Divine word , strength, encouragement and guidance through my numerous trials and tribulations . If not for You my believed I would never have survived the ordeals. I exalt You in the name of the wisest Teacher Jesus Christ . Amen

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

One Goes With the Other.

chief-duty

 And God is able to make all grace [every favor and earthly blessing] come in abundance to you, so that you may always [under all circumstances, regardless of the need] have complete sufficiency in everything [being completely self-sufficient in Him], and have an abundance for every good work and act of charity. 2 Corinthians 9:8 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Jehovah gives us so that we are to give to others. If you do not share then why should He share with you?

Jehovah will not provide you with abundance of earthly delights like a home you cannot afford or a new car with all the toys you do not need or expensive clothing you do not need but and abundance of spiritual blessings to complete the task He has intended for you in His divine plan.

“I exhort you, press on in your course, and exhort all men that they may be saved.” — Polycarp

The earthly blessings will be a time and place to accomplish His plan through you. It will also include the materials you need , like maybe a computer.

The only way to accomplish this task is with Divine wisdom , grace , meekness and humbleness which can only be received through you dependence upon Him. He will abundantly supply these things.

I have done more for the Lord through the simple things that Jehovah lavishly provides for me than through the gadgets the world offers. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Jireh (God is our Provider) for blessing me with Your daily providence to accomplish the tasks You have predestined for me to do for Your glory , Your kingdom and those who need assistance. I extol You in the name of He who provided for the four thousand Jesus Christ . Amen

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

You Meet the Criteria

JESUS' GUIDANCE

 But God has selected [for His purpose] the foolish things of the world to shame the wise [revealing their ignorance], and God has selected [for His purpose] the weak things of the world to shame the things which are strong [revealing their frailty]. 1 Corinthians 1:27 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Do you believe you are not smart enough to share the gospel or a Bible study?

Jehovah needs you for that exact reason. He uses the uneducated to shame the arrogant that profess to be wise. He shows that He is using you to show others what He can do through others and themselves. You meet the criteria to be useful in His kingdom work.

You do not need to be pretty enough, rich enough, a social elite or genius to do His work ( indeed , many times these are a hindrance ).

Do you have a heart that is willing to do His will and be obedient unto His calling in your life ?

Then , you meet the criteria to be His servant.

Have a sincere desire to serve God and mankind, and stop doubting, stop thinking negatively. Simply start living by faith, pray earnestly and humbly, and get into the habit of looking expectantly for the best. –Norman Vincent Peal

Indeed , I had no university degree when I went to service unto the Lord in Asia but had a willing heart to learn how to teach and was obedient unto His calling. In the process I was a much sought after teacher shaming many of the arrogant university educated ones who thought they were superior to me. It was a comical twist when these souls ended up coming to me the “ uneducated “ for advice because I knew how to teach in Asia ( through the Lords special class which took two years and a lot of effort and trial and error on my behalf) and they did not ( people in different parts of the world learn differently than from those of different parts of the world ) .

Jehovah can use the outcasts of society more than the elite because the outcasts know they need Jehovahs guidance more than the elite do. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Bara ( The Lord Creator) for taking a filthy lost sinner like me and creating in me a heart, mind and soul that is receptive to Your Divine purification and blessing me with Your Divine purpose. I exalt You in the name of He who transformed ignorant fishermen into world transforming disciples Jesus Christ . Amen

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