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

Today and Every Day.

Oh my Beloved El Emunah (Deuteronomy 7:9 The Faithful GOD ), I need You in my life today and every day.

Please bless me with Your gentle healing touch when others inflict me with cruel words or actions today.

Please bless me to be forgiving as You are forgiving unto me.

Please bless me with Your forgiveness when I am cruel in my words and actions today and guide me to repent to those I have offended either intentionally or unintentionally.

Please constantly remind me to depend upon Your guidance instead of foolishly depending upon my own or others flawed intelligence.

Thank you for Your healing balm upon my wounded heart as You are the best doctor there is.

Thank you that there is always a purpose in the wounds and aches and pains that come my way. They are for teaching me, maturing me or correcting me when I am going astray. You allow these because You love me too much to leave me as I am and desire for me to be the child of Yours You know I can be. It is because of these my Lord that my love for You grows ever deeper every day and we grow ever closer every day.

Thank you for that, the best blessing You can give me above all other blessings.

I humbly say this prayer in the name of my best friend Jesus Christ. Amen

Why do You Give?   

Lazy people are soon poor Proverbs 10:4 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

We are bombarded with feel good stories on the TV news of giving to help the poor, giving to help those with sicknesses and disease.   

BUT, what is at the heart of the giver?                      

Do they genuinely give because of their concern or do they give to feel good and to be prideful on social media look at me, look at me. Or to brag to friends, family and co-workers? Do they participate to be a part of the crowd or because they are peer pressured to give?        

Yes the Lord loves a cheerful giver BUT, we must first take it to Him in prayer where to give, how much to give and when to give. Then, we will be giving to please the Lord which is the only reason any Christian should give.               

Give joyfully and thankfully to the Lord in abundance as a sacrifice of love and appreciation as He has given in abundance sometimes with great cost (like the cross) to you.  

Give, but give to bring glory to Christ not to self Joseph a son of Jehovah

  Why do you give?

 Prayer:Thank you Jehovah Jireth (Genesis 22:14 The LORD Shall Provide) for blessing me with the tools and the opportunities to help those that are worthy of help. May these opportunities be a conduit to guide the needy into Your gracious loving arms. I praise You in the name of He who gave His blood for my redemption, Jesus Christ. Amen

May you be blessed with the gift of love, the gift of peace, the gift of joy. May you be blessed with numerous opportunities to share these gifts with others today.   Joseph a son of Jehovah

What Will Happen To

 The godly can look forward to a reward, while the wicked can expect only judgment. Give freely and become more wealthy; be stingy and lose everything. The generous will prosper; those who refresh others will themselves be refreshed. If you search for good, you will find favor; but if you search for evil, it will find you! Trust in your money and down you go! But the godly flourish like leaves in spring. Those who bring trouble on their families inherit the wind. The fool will be a servant to the wise. The seeds of good deeds become a tree of life; a wise person wins friends. If the righteous are rewarded here on earth, what will happen to wicked sinners? Proverbs 11:23-31 Holy Bible New Living Translation

One day while volunteering with a Christian organization delivering furniture to the needy we delivered furniture to welfare bums. They were so lazy they refused to even carry the free blankets used to keep them warm. They were ungrateful.

But, you know what else they were?

Very sad and ashamed .

It was because they knew their lifestyle was wrong not because of us.

We were respectful and friendly with them.

Listening to them talk amongst themselves we hear them constantly brag about themselves while drinking and smoking cigarettes. This is vanity and it comes from a selfish heart. But the sad thing is that:

When you surround yourself with yourself you end up with nobody but yourself. That is a very lonely place to be. Joseph a son of Jehovah

They were living a destructive lifestyle and it was only destroying themselves.

For we must all stand before Christ to be judged. We will each receive whatever we deserve for the good or evil we have done in this earthly body. 2 Corinthians 5:10 Holy Bible New Living Translation

Later we did deliver furniture to low income folks who were very grateful so it more than evened out for being a rewarding day knowing that we helped the truly needy. And, because we are Christians and those we helped were not, we gave glory to Jesus and by His grace used this as a conutit to guide them to Him.

And don’t forget to do good and to share with those in need. These are the sacrifices that please God. Hebrews 13:16 Holy Bible New Living Translation

There is a difference between those in need and those who are too lazy to support themselves. Supporting the later is a waste of the resources Jehovah has given you to help those who are truly in need. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Please Elohim Ozer Li (Psalms 54:4 GOD My Helper ) bless me with helping me discern the difference between those that need help and those that are parasites upon society. The one my heart dance with joy for the opportunity to help. The other is a waste of time, energy and resources. I humbly request this in the name of He who only gave salvation to those who were willing to become His servants and work for His kingdoms interest Jesus Christ. Amen

Whatever is beautiful, whatever is meaningful, whatever brings you joy, may you be blessed with an abundance of it this every day this year. Joseph a son of Jehovah
