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.

For Your Gift

Oh Jehovah Abba (God our Father) 1 John 3:1 thank You for Your promise that your mercies are new every morning and Your faithfulness is great.

Thank you for your amazing power, great love and work in my life every day.

Thank you for Your endless goodness and bountiful blessings over me. I am so grateful that You are always with me through the toughest of times.

Thank you the power and strength that The Holy Spirit, who dwells with in me, blesses me with every day.

Thank you that Your mercy and grace is always with me.

Thank you for allowing the incredible sacrifice You allowed Your most precious Son to sacrifice for me so that I have freedom and life in communion with You.

Please forgive me when I neglect to thank you for the generous blessings You give me every day, for all You have done in my life and for all You are doing in my life.

Please help me to set my eyes and heart on you afresh today.

Please renew my spirit every morning and fill me with Your peace and joy. Thank you that your ways are far greater than my ways and Your thoughts far deeper than my thoughts.

Thank you for Your plan to redeem me and that in You, all things are made new.

Thank you that Your face is towards the righteous, You are close to the brokenhearted, You hear my cries, and know my heart.

Thank you for Your daily, powerful presence in my life, that I am assured, no matter what I am facing, Your heart is towards me, Your eyes are over me, and Your ears are open to my prayers.

Thank you that you surround us with favor as with a shield, and I am safe in Your care.

I humbly ask that You would keep my footsteps firm on solid ground, helping me to be consistent and faithful.

Please give me supernatural endurance to stay the course in life which You have chosen for me to walk to Heaven, not swerving to the right or to the left, or being too easily distracted by other things that would seek to call me away from a close walk with You.

I pray for your protection over my life, my family, and other believers.

I ask for your hand to cover us and keep us distanced from the evil intent of the enemy, that you would be a barrier over us and we would find refuge in you.

I pray You would give me discernment and insight beyond my years to understand Your will, hear Your voice, know Your ways and be obedient unto them all.

Please shine Your light in me, through me, and over me. May I make a difference in my family, my neighbourhood and this world for your glory, so your purposes would stand. Set Your way before us this day and every day.

May all Your plans in my life succeed.

May I reflect your peace and hope to a world that so desperately needs Your presence and healing. I deeply love You and need You Lord in every aspect of my life, this day and every day.

I give You praise and thanks, for You alone are worthy, and I are more than conquerors through the gift of Jesus Christ! In Jesus’ Name 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

Never Mind Telling Them.

“Look, I now teach you these decrees and regulations just as the Lord my God commanded me, so that you may obey them in the land you are about to enter and occupy. Obey them completely, and you will display your wisdom and intelligence among the surrounding nations. When they hear all these decrees, they will exclaim, ‘How wise and prudent are the people of this great nation!’ For what great nation has a god as near to them as the Lord our God is near to us whenever we call on him? And what great nation has decrees and regulations as righteous and fair as this body of instructions that I am giving you today? Deuteronomy 4:5-8 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Do you notice that it is when the Israelite’s lived according to Jehovahs instructions that the surrounding nations became intrigued by them?

So too it is to be with us in our quest to bring others into Jehovahs family.

I hear so many preachers say we must evangelize the world to bring everyone to Jesus and we must share Jesus with the world.

Never mind telling them, the most effective way to bring others to Christ is by living the Christian life. When others see you are different from the rest of society they will be curious. THEN, you can share what Jesus has done in your life and through your life.

A Christian must walk the walk before they talk the talk. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Those whose hearts are receptive will move towards Christ while those who prefer living in darkness will walk away. Do not go after those who walk away. Leave that to the Holy Spirit to move their hearts towards Jesus. If they will not listen to the Holy Spirit, they sure will not listen to you.

Prayer: Please Jehovah GELAH RAZ ( the God of the Revealer of Mysteries Colossians 1:26 ) bless me to live a life that emulates Your beloved son Jesus Christ so that when others see this mysterious manner of living they will be drawn towards me and I can be blessed with sharing the simple truth of the blessing of being a loved child of Yours, which is a mystery to the dark world. I humbly beseech Thee in the name of the Light of love in this dark world, Jesus Christ. Amen

The gift of love, the gift of joy, the gift of peace, these are the greatest gifts that can be given. They are given in abundance to all those in Christs family by our Heavenly loving  Father to be shared with others. May you be blessed with plentiful opportunities to share these with those around you today. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Keeping Our Eyes On

 We do this by keeping our eyes on Jesus, the champion who initiates and perfects our faith Hebrews 12:2 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

I have travelled a lot and taken only two routes.

The first one was to wing it. Let’s just go and see where the road will take us. Although it was adventurous, it was also very dangerous at times and there were many times I had to back track.

On the other hand, when I followed a map the journey was a lot less stressful and unnecessarily complicated.

Once we become Christians we depend upon Jesus to lead us where our Heavenly King desires His free will servant to go. During the journey He initiates circumstances which will strengthen our faith, trust, in Him. This causes us to trust Him more, respect Him more, appreciate Him more and most importantly, to love Him more.

How can you see where you are going? With keeping your eyes on the map and Jesus is the map? Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Roi (Psalms 23:1 The LORD My Shepherd ) for constantly guiding this gullible sheep that could easily be led astray if left on my own. Thank you for blessing me with fine tuning me to be ever more mature every day. I praise You in Your wise name. Amen

May love be in your life, may hope be in your heart and may peace be in your every day walk with Christ. Joseph a son of Jehovah T

You Are a Chosen One.

 I chose you. John 15:19 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

The next time you are feeling down just remember, you are a chosen one.

You did not come to Jesus, He came to you.

He did not come for you to sit on your hands and wait for Him but rather for you to serving the Supreme King. He has a specific job just for you. You were created to serve the most loving, special King of Kings.

Now how are we to know how to serve Jesus?

Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take. Proverbs 3:6 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Your will be done, not mine is the Christian motto. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Melech Olam (Psalms 10:16 The LORD King Forever ) for coming a knocking at the door of my heart and choosing to have me as one of Your loyal free will servants. It is the greatest honour that can be bestowed upon anyone. Thank you that through this relationship You have blessed with with nurturing a ever closer loving relationship with each other very day.  I praise You in Your majestic name. Amen       

May you be blessed with many opportunities to serve our Heavenly King today.  Joseph a son of Jehovah

Not an Emotion.

We know what real love is because Jesus gave up his life for us. So we also ought to give up our lives for our brothers and sisters. 1 John 3:16 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

As Christians we are to emulate Jesus.

Just as He gave up everything for us, so too are we to be prepared to give up everything for our fellow man if called upon by Christ.

Are you willing to fast for a week so that the money that would be spent on your groceries would be used to help someone less fortunate than you?

I gave up a months salary to help pay for an life saving operation for a child whose parent were too poor to pay for it. I lived off of one package of instant soup for breakfast, one for lunch and one for supper for a month to pay for the operation.

Love is an action, not an emotion. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Would you give up wages to help someone who needed help?

I used to spend two day teaching rookies how to plant trees at the beginning of the season. That cost me my wages for those days.

Dear children, let’s not merely say that we love each other; let us show the truth by our actions. 1 John 3:18 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Would you be willing to suffer inconvenience to help others?

When a missionary in Latin America. Instead of living in a comfortable motel, I lived in a tent and used the money saved to buy food and medicine for the poor folks I was working with.

If you claim to be a christian and are not prepared to suffer for the good of others, you are not a Christian. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Heseh (God is love 1 John 4:16 ) for blessing me with the most amazing loving relationship with You, Jesus and the Holy Spirit. Thank you for using me as a conduit to express Your love to others. I thank you in the name of my most loving best friend Jesus Christ. Amen

May you be blessed with abundant joy in your heart filled with love and your life overflowing with laughter every day this year. Joseph a son of Jehovah

A Christians Scars

For I bear on my body the scars that show I belong to Jesus. Galatians 6:17 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

The older we get, the more scars we have. There are different types of scars.

There is of course the physical ones, the mental ones and the spiritual ones.

The difference is that those that dwell in the world have no use for their scars.

I love to share the events in my life where Jehovah, Jesus and they Holy Spirit have touched me.                                                                         How can I not?                                                                                          They were life changing. Joseph a son of Jehovah

We that belong to Christ use these scars to encourage those in His family. When we see another brother or sister suffering we come along side them and share our scars with them and how Jesus used these scars to help mature us and how His gentle love healed these scars.

A Christians scars are used for encouragement for others in Jehovahs family. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ELOHIM YAKOL (God, the Most Able 2 Corinthians 9:8) for blessing me with challenging times so as to enable me to use these experiences to encourage, teach and comfort others when they go through life’s troubles. I praise You in the name of He who suffered the most for me Jesus Christ. Amen

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love fill your heart today and every day. Joseph a son of Jehovah

A Pretty Brave Request.

 Search me, O God, and know my heart;  test me and know my anxious thoughts.
Point out anything in me that offends you, and lead me along the path of everlasting life. Psalm 139:23-24 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

I do not know about you but I have no desire for Jehovah to test me. That is a pretty brave request. I have gone through testing and it ain’t fun.

As well, no matter how strong of a Christian you think you are, you are still weak.

Come to think about it, that is a great reason to ask to be tested, to find out any area’s of weakness that needs work on and to not become overconfident.

Jehovah already knows our anxious thoughts and knows how to relieve them, usually for me it is by opening my understanding of Bible verses that encourage and strengthen me.

Sometimes we become complacent in our lives and unknowingly are doing things that are offensive unto Jesus.

We need the Holy Spirit to convict us of these ( do not worry, He is a good, kind and gentle teacher. There is no yelling or screaming. However, when we are obstinate, He will use strong manner to convince us to turn from these destructive habits).

Unlike the world, which is travelling down the Highway to Hell, Christ has an individual road for us to travel the we alone are to travel to our Heavenly Home. That is why we need the guidance of the best path finder, The Holy Spirit. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Please Jehovah Jireth (Genesis 22:14 The LORD Shall Provide) bless me with the Holy Spirit to always provide help to me to remain on the Back Road to Heaven You have chosen no matter how hot and dusty and bumpy it is. I know the ultimate destination is worth it.             

I honestly request this in the name of He who followed the most difficult road, the one that led to Calvary, for me, Jesus Christ. Amen

The gift of love, the gift of joy, the gift of peace, these are the greatest gifts that can be given. They are given in abundance to all those in Christs family by our Heavenly loving  Father. May you be blessed with plentiful opportunities to share these with those around you today. Joseph a son of Jehovah

We Are Not To

 After the Lord had finished speaking to Job, he said to Eliphaz the Temanite: “I am angry with you and your two friends, for you have not spoken accurately about me, as my servant Job has Job 42:7 1 John 1:9 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Jobs friends were guilty of giving bad advice. But, they did so out of love for Job. They did so to try to make things right in his life. I am sure he realized this and that is why he asked Jehovah to forgive them.

We all receive bad advice from others who have good intentions.

We are not to hold it against them but rather be grateful to them that they cared enough to offer the advice.

We are to forgive others for their flawed advice and ask Jehovah to prevent us from giving it. When we do give it we are to sincerely repent.  Joseph a son of Jehovah

We are as well, to ask Jehovah to forgive them for the bad advice as we are to forgive them.

On the flip side of the coin we are to apologize to those we have unintentionally given bad advice to as well as ask Jehovah to forgive us and to bless us with the means to reconcile with the offended ones.

Prayer: Please Jehovah El Emeth (Psalms 31:5 LORD GOD of Truth) forgive my well meaning friends when they innocently provide faulty advice to my problems. They are but simple folk compared to Your wisdom. Please bless me with the Holy Spirits guidance to always provide Divine guidance when called upon by others. I humbly request this in the name of the best advice giver there ever was Jesus Christ. Amen

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love fill your heart today and every day. Joseph a son of Jehovah

It Hurts Two Very Important Ones.

 Repent [change your inner self your old way of thinking, regret past sins, live your life in a way that proves repentance; seek God’s purpose for your life] and believe [with a deep, abiding trust]in the good news[regarding salvation].” Mark 1:15 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

When you refuse to repent it hurts two very important ones. The first and most important one it hurts is Jehovah

Because you refuse to repent there is arrogance in your heart. Because Jehovah is love and you have arrogance in your heart, you separate yourself from Him. You are too arrogant to say you are sorry to Him so you are not forgiven That hurts Him tremendously.

The next one you hurt is yourself. The longer you refuse to repent the further you are getting away from your loving relationship with Jehovah and getting closer towards Hell, both in this life and in the eternal one.

Many times the offence you have committed involves someone else so you have hurt them and your relationship with them. So, many times there is a third party that you have hurt as well.

Repentance is the best medicine there is for your mental, physical and spiritual health. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Goelekh (Isaiah 49:26&60:16 The LORD Thy Redeemer) for blessing me with redemption whenever I repent of my sins. Thank you Holy Spirit for making me sensitive to my sins and teaching me the proper way in which to repent to the one I have offended. Thank you Jehovah for making it all possible in Your divine plans to redeem Your children. I praise You all in the name of He whose blood made it all possible, Jesus Christ. Amen
