A closer walk with our beloved friend.


He is Close to Those Who

The Lord is good, a strong refuge when trouble comes. He is close to those who trust in him. Nahum 1:7 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

When tornadoes hit the best place to be is in the basement. Even though the winds may pick up the house, fling it around and totally destroy it, you are safe in the basement.

So too it is with Jehovah. When financial, physical or mental troubles come, always run into His strong yet gentle arms for protection.

One time I felt the Lord instructing me to take a different route to go to the school I was teaching at. I argued that it was longer but He was insistent. I obeyed and was glad for it. There was a terrible car accident and I would have had to take an even longer route around the disaster.

Even though a lot of times it does not make sense, obey Jehovahs instructions for you. It will prevent a lot of hardship and sorrow later. Joseph a son of Jehovah

But, there is no sense in calling out for help if you do not trust Him.

So if you call out to the Lord for protection and refuse to listen then why blame Him when things go south.

So, if someone is abusing you and He instructs you to get away from them and you refuse to leave, why blame Him for not rescuing you from an abusive relationship?

I know some one who is a live in care giver for a abusive mother. Finally the Lord gave them instructions on how to be loving but firm with their charge. As well, they are to keep their interaction with them to a limited amount. Since obeying Him, there is a lot less stress in my their.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Elohe Yeshuathi (Psalms 88:1 LORD GOD of My Salvation ) for blessing me with salvation from an abusive relationship. Thank you for teaching me how to behave in a loving but firm manner so that I can shine Your love while refusing to be abused. I greatly appreciate You in the name of He who stood up to bullies, Jesus Christ. Amen

May you be greatly blessed with the knowledge of the proper manner to respond to a bully to shine Jesus’ love while protecting yourself from abuse. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Then You Will Learn to Know

Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect. Romans 12:2 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

We all inherit bad dispositions from our ancestors. Some are good. Some are bad.

We know we should not do the bad things but no matter how hard we try to stop doing them, we fail every time. The only way to cleanse ourselves of these destructive forces with in us is to totally surrender them unto Jehovah.

There are three ways this is accomplished. One, He blesses us with the strength to conquer them ourselves.

Two we work in conjunction with The Holy Spirit to destroy them. To do these first two means we must surrender our will to The Holy Spirits will.

Not my will, but Thy will be done is the only way for true success. Joseph a son of Jehovah

The third way is when the sin is too powerful with in us. It can only be eradicated through the power of The Holy Spirit who is sent by Jehovah.

When this has happened with me there was nothing dramatic about it. One day I woke up and the Lord softy whispered in my ear : “ It is finished.” and I never partook of that destructive habit again.

It is important for everyone to research their ancestry to understand why they are the way they are. It is more important to surrender our will to allow the Holy Spirit to mold us into the beautiful children Jehovah desires us to be. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Elohim Ozer Li (Psalms 54:4 GOD My Helper ) for blessing me with the best helper of all to assist me in becoming what I know You desire for me to be, The Holy Spirit. I praise You in the name of He with whom I deeply desire to emulate, Jesus Christ. Amen.

May you be blessed with the washing away of the filth of destructive habits to be replaced with the Holy ones Jehovah knows we are

The Entire Family is Affected.

I lay the sins of the parents upon their children; the entire family is affected. Exodus 20:5 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Yes, your sins affect those around you. That is especially true for children. It does not matter if they are your children, nephews nieces, cousins or the children in your neighborhood. When you participate in destructive behavior like excessive drinking or drugs or any other manner of selfishness little eyes are watching you. Your behavior whether good or bad influences the next generation. You will be held accountable in Jesus Christs high court.

Now some destructive habits are too strong for you to control. They are passed down from generation to generation in your family.

So, do the only logical thing available for you. Take it all to Jesus. Lay it at the supreme healers feet. He will heal you.

Now it may happen immediately like my addiction to alcohol. Or, it may take years, like my addiction to nicotine. But, it will happen. Sometimes Christ will guide to to resources and men and or women that will help you. Sometimes, like with me, it is accomplished only by His Power . But, be assured, when you ask in faith, He will set you free.

Always go to the best Doctor for the worst illness, destructive habits. He has 100 % success rate. Joseph a son of Jehovah

For you know that God paid a ransom to save you from the empty life you inherited from your ancestors. 1 Peter 1:18-19 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

What a wonderful example that is to those around you.

Do not hide your sins and Jehovahs rescue and forgiveness of them. You will be a great encouragement to others. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Please Jehovah Mephalti (Psalms 18:2 The LORD My Deliverer ) bless me with plenty of opportunities to share with others, the incredible experiences of the countless times You have delivered me. May these shared encounters lead those enduring difficult times to be encouraged to come unto You. I humbly request this in the name of He who delivered us from Hell on the cross, Jesus Christ. Amen

May you always be encouraged to go to the best rescuer of all in times of trouble, Jesus Christ. Amen Joseph a son of Jehovah
