What do I Care.

do-not-allow-them-to-control-you

The fear of man brings a snare, But whoever trusts in and puts his confidence in the Lord will be exalted and safe. Proverbs 29:25 Holy Bible Amplified Version.

Here are four very important words we all need to remember : “ What do I care. “

There are plenty of wolves ( those who like to prey upon the weak and tear them down ) both inside inside the church ( as a matter of fact , I have encountered more inside the church than outside ) and outside ( most of the ones I have met outside the church are the satanic politically correct whose idea of free speech and thought is that you are entitled to your opinion as long as it agrees with mine. If you disagree with mine your are intolerant , racist , homophobic or sexist ) .

When they attack you unfairly for standing up to for the Truth just reply : You are the intolerant one who refuses to listen to the truth. Therefore as pertaining to your “ opinion” “ What do I care. “ and just stand there and allow them to scream at you and look like fools. Either that or they will shut up and walk away.

When they try to gang up on you just ask the ring leader why they are afraid to debate with you one on one. I have used this quite successfully numerous times.

Indeed most times after the confrontation many folks come up to me and thank me for standing up for the Truth ( even if they are not Christians ).

The Lord is my light and my salvation— Whom shall I fear? Psalm 27:1 Holy Bible Amplified Version.

Then there are the ones that laugh at you because you do not follow them down the road of despair. They are in despair because they try to keep up with the Jones and the Jones keep on changing the rules. I dress as I feel comfortable and respectable.

When someone mocks me because I do not keep up with the “in crowd” I reason with them like why they “have to have “ the latest mobile phone when there is nothing wrong with the one they have now. It makes them look silly. The conversation is ended when they ask me what others think of me because I do not keep up with the crowd with “ What do I care. “ 

I then ask them if they are nurturing their spirit as much as they are big business’ wallet. They are informed that I care what Jesus believes in me not what the “ in crowd “ thinks of me. It is a great opportunity to open up a dialogue on the Christian walk.

I care not what my fellow man thinks of me, I care what my Heavenly King believes in me. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Abba (God our Father) for blessing me with the assurance that it is only what You believe me to be in being Your cherished , loved child that is important not what the delusional think about me that is important in my life. I extol Thee in the name whose only concern when walking amongst us was in the belief of His Heavenly Father that mattered 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.

Is Your Head Hurting?

RESTLESS HEART

 Why are you in despair, O my soul? And why are you restless and disturbed within me?
Hope in God
and wait expectantly for Him. Psalm 42:5 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Despair is the state of being discouraged.

Is your head hurting from walking into walls ? You know the feeling , like no matter what you try it is like walking into a wall. You are pounding the pavement looking for employment yet it seems as if every door is closed. You have tried all kinds of different medical treatment yet your ailment is getting worse. Of course there is the wonderful experience of raising teenagers and they refuse to listen to you ( that has been going on for eons. ) .

The list could continue for a long time couldn’t it ?

To hope for something is to believe in the future occurrence of (something).

We are children of the Supreme God , children. Take hope that He loves you and because He loves you He will come to your aid in Him time in His way. His answer may not be what you desire however He is far more wiser than you. As a consequence He knows what is best for you far better that you do.

I know, there have been many times when I desired something in my life and passionately prayed for our Beloveds blessing to have it come to fruition. He did not. At the time I was bitterly disappointed. In reflection I see the wise providence of His hand that if He had of granted me my desire it would have been a disaster.

On the other hand there have been event that I fervently prayed for every day for decades. Finally He blessed me that they blossomed into reality. Again I understand why it took Him so long to grant my request and am joyously grateful for His blessings.

“Every tomorrow has two handles. We can take hold of it with the handle of anxiety or the handle of faith.” – Henry Ward Beecher

Prayer : Thank you Jehovah-Jireh (God is our Provider) for Your Divine abundant assistance throughout my life. I thank you that You refused some requests that would have led to certain disaster and for answering those that bring about joyous events that will glorify You. I exuberantly praise You in the name He whose sacrifice answered my call for salvation Jesus Christ. Amen

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

You Cover and Shelter Them

DANCE FOR JOY

 But let all who take refuge and put their trust in You rejoice, Let them ever sing for joy; Because You cover and shelter them, Let those who love Your name be joyful and exult in You. Psalms 5: 11 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Refuge is defined as a shelter or protection from danger or distress. We as children of Jehovah have free access when ever it is needed under His almighty protection from Satan and his minions.

That does not mean we will not under go times of trial and tribulation, sorrow and snares. These are required of every child to grow strong in our walk with Christ in our ability to with stand them and to have confidence in Divine intervention when they are too strong for us to withstand. The result of this is to be filled with love , admiration and joy towards our awesome God. We cannot but in exhalation sing songs of love and joy as a gift of gratitude towards our Heavenly Beloved.

Jesus is moved to happiness every time He sees that you appreciate what He has done for you. –Ole Hallesby

Prayer: I extol You oh Jehovah-Gador Milchamah ( The Lord is Mighty in Battle ) for the uncountable times You have come to my aid and rescued me from certain destruction the oh so many times when Satan or his minions have unmercifully attacked a weak soul like me with Your ultimate power. I thank You for the countless times You have allowed me to walk through the fire and You were there with me in my each and every time. I exalt You in the name of He who never deserted His disciples Jesus Christ . Amen .

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

Bring Me There

FULLFILLED DESIRES

 For the Lord God is a sun and shield; The Lord bestows grace and favour and honour; No good thing will He withhold from those who walk uprightly. Psalm 84:11 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Grace is defined as unmerited divine assistance given humans for their regeneration or sanctification and a virtue coming from God. Virtue is defined as conformity to a standard of right.

Therefore we need the Holy Spirits guidance and power to conform to Jehovahs Divine standard of morals in our lives. This is not a one off experience but rather a moment by moment, day by day experience. It is not anything we can accomplish by ourselves. Our intelligence is very limited compared to Jehovahs infinite wisdom. So we need to constantly depend upon His unlimited wisdom is every aspect of our lives.

To stumble on the little things will cause the big stumble to occur. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Our strength to live such lives is weak compared to the strength the Holy Spirit will instill in us to accomplish this feat. Once we begin to have integrity instilled in us we are not to become complacent and believe we will always have it. Satan is far smarter than us and can quickly strip it away from us. We are not to become arrogant towards others lest it be stripped from us to humble us.

“If I am not [in a state of grace], God bring me there; if I am, God keep me there!” — Joan of Arc

Prayer: Jehovah- Go’el (The Lord is my Redeemer) for Your awesome gift of graceful guidance in every aspect of my life. Thank you for not only forgiving me when I stumble and fall but with Your strong gentle hands lift me up to continue my walk towards the Heavenly home You have graciously prepared for me. I laud You in the name whose graceful sacrifice on the cross made it all possible Jesus Christ. Amen

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.

We Require Suffering

ships-in-harbour

 “Behold, I will refine them [through suffering] and test them Jeremiah 9:7 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Jehovahs plan for refining us means buring off of the dross.

In smelting steel it is put through a furnace and all the impurities is burned off of the iron to make steel.

In Jehovahs smelting furnace it is putting us through the furnace to burn off our bad dispositions.

For me it was being independent instead of being dependant upon Jehovah. He put me through some extremely hard times where I could not depend upon myself but was left with no option but to depend upon Him. The process lasted for about a year. Even after that the process had to be repeated again and again until the lesson was finally learned. He would test me and at first it was hard to be dependent upon Him but in time it became easier and easier.

Believe me, it was not an enjoyable experience suffering through it but I thank Jehovah every day for that blessing.

Now, I do not make a move without inquiring of Him. It leads to a lot less train wrecks financially and in relationships.

We require suffering for spiritual growth Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Shammah The Lord is Present) for always being present through all the numerous times I was put through the furnace to burn off the wicked dross so that Your skilled hands could mold me into the child You desire. I exalt You in the name of he who is the Supreme Molder Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.

Cast All Your Anxiety on Him.

calms-the-storms

 Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you. 1 Peter 5:7 Holy Bible, New International Version

When ever a crisis occurs or a stressful moment occurs I pray for Jehovah to bless me with peace, patience and faith. Every morning during prayers I always ask for wisdom in how to properly handle any and all stressful situations.

Usually He answers me without my knowing during the situation but upon reflection I always thank Him for the blessing.

Sometimes I can be short tempered (yes it happens to us all) and apologize for it to those offended and to Jehovah with deep regret and ask Him to help me the next time (which He has in how to remove myself from stressful situations and people- yes there are toxic people that love to push our buttons and we are to avoid them whenever possible).

Many times I go to a quiet place in nature with my Bible. Nature calms me down and after pouring my heart out to Him a feeling of peace envelopes me and He guides me to verses in the Bible and with wisdom in what He is saying on the proper course to take to handle the situation in a Christ like manner.

I do them same thing for every problem and worry.

Worry does not empty tomorrow of its sorrows; it empties today of its strength. Corrie ten Boom

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Mephalti (The Lord my Deliverer) for blessing me with Your Divine deliverance from all worry, stress and short temperance with Your Holy peace, wisdom and strength. I exalt you in the name of He who is the greatest Deliverer of all Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.
