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.

Thank you Jehovah El Nekamoth

Be still in the presence of the Lord, and wait patiently for him to act. Don’t worry about evil people who prosper or fret about their wicked schemes. Stop being angry! Turn from your rage! Do not lose your temper it only leads to harm. Psalm 37:7-8 The Holy Bible, New Living Translation

I have gone through it numerous times through out my life.

There have been folks that are shifty, swindlers that are getting away with cheating others, including myself, out of money. They arrogantly laugh and brag about it.

In tears of frustration and anger on my knees I called out to the Lord for vengeance and justice.

Yet, nothing was done to punish the perpetrator.

Then, some where down the line, BANG, it hits them. It is total devastation in their lives.

They lose their wealth, they lose their home, they lose their marriage and family and, they lose their health. It is terrifying how total and complete the justice of Jehovah is when He strikes.

Now, when someone is abusing me, I just have faith in the Lord that He will help me get through the unpleasant experience and that Divine justice will be done.

So, when someone is abusing you or those you love and care about, do not get angry and try to get revenge. Leave it in the Lords strong, wise hands.

Justice, true justice, will triumph over evil every time. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah El Nekamoth (Psalms 18:47 GOD that Avengeth ) that justice, true justice will always be given out by Your strong hands of true justice. I exalt You in the name of the Supreme Judge, Jesus Christ. Amen

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

The Simple Yet Effective Way To

In peace [and with a tranquil heart] I will both lie down and sleep, For You alone, O Lord, make me dwell in safety and confident trust. Psalm 4:8 The Holy Bible, The Amplified Version

It is amazing that most folks suffer from insomnia.

Yeah, I used to be one of them.

Then, I was enlightened to the simple yet effective way to the best sleep I have ever had.

When suffering insomnia it is because I always have a problem. The problem is laid out at the feet of Jesus. Usually it is difficult to lay it completely at His feet because He gently lulls me to sleep with a warm blanket of love and assurance He will help solve the problem. There is safety and confidence in my most trusted best friend.

It works for me, why not give it a try?

For the best nights sleep, sleep in the gentle loving arms of Jesus. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah OLAM ZEROWA ( The Everlasting Arms Deut. 33:26) that I can take comfort in Your strong yet gentle arms as You softly lulls me to sleep with Your kind reassurance. I adore You in the name of my loving big brother 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 May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love fill your heart today and every day. Joseph a son of Jehovah

The Holy Spirit ‘Ori

The proud hold me in utter contempt, but I do not turn away from your instructions. Psalm 119:51The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

There once was a popular song about doing it my way style of life. Those that live that life are selfish, egocentric, proud and stubborn. They gladly use and abuse others just to get what they want. When cannot get what they want or do not need them anymore, they through them away like rubbish.

They hate and hold in utter contempt those that walk with integrity and obedience to Christ. They do so because when they see us, our lifestyle and manner convicts them ( we do not verbally convict them, it is our lifestyle they hate ). Deep down inside they know they are evil and wicked and the ultimate reward for this lifestyle is the bowels of Hell and eternal damnation.

Hell is full of the proud, Heaven is full of the humble. Chose now because you will not have that choice on judgment day. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah for sending me The Holy Spirit ‘Ori ( the Lord is my Light) Psalm 27:1 ) to guide the light of the path to Heaven You have chosen for me to travel. I pray You bless me to be a light to guide those walking in darkness to Your Divine Light. I humbly request this in the name of the Light of the World, Jesus Christ. Amen

May the Lord bless you to destroy the wall the wicked place over their hearts as you guide them to Jesus 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

You are Jehovah Elohay Mishpat

“I don’t mean to say that I have already achieved these things or that I have already reached perfection. But I press on to possess that perfection for which Christ Jesus first possessed me. No, dear brothers and sisters, I have not achieved it, but I focus on this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead, I press on to reach the end of the race and receive the heavenly prize for which God, through Christ Jesus, is calling us.” Philippians 3:12-14 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Prayer: Oh my Beloved Jehovah Rapha (God my healer)Jeremiah 33:6 ) the cuts are deep of past injuries committed by others. There is anger, bitterness and hurt that can only be healed by Thy loving touch.

Help me to concentrate on our loving relationship instead of the toxic one from the past.

Help me free myself of abusive toxic folks no matter who they are, including family.

I depend upon You, Holy Spirit to help me set Godly boundaries in my relationships. I depend upon You to guide me in the proper use of these skills to nurture loving relationships while purging myself of toxic folks who only bring unnecessary drama and chaos to my life. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Help me to have faith also that you are Jehovah Elohay Mishpat (the God of Justice! Romans 12:19 ) and that if the wicked refuse to repent they shall suffer seven time more than they have caused me to suffer by Your just hand.

Lord, I’ve been stuck in the past in so many ways. Guilt. Anger. Unforgiveness. It is robbing me of the joy I know You long for me to have. It inhibits my service to You and the relationships with those I care so much about.

Please forgive me for getting stuck there and help me get off to a fresh start.

Like Paul, help me forget the past and look forward to what lies ahead as I take this journey with you.

Whenever negative thoughts attempt to enter into my mind please replace them with joyful reminders of the amazing times we have spent together. In the name of He with whom I look forward to sharing a Heavenly hug with when He welcomes me home Jesus Christ, I humbly pray. 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
