Yield and Submit.

WE MUST LET GO

 “Now yield and submit yourself to Him [agree with God and be conformed to His will] and be at peace; In this way [you will prosper and great] good will come to you. Job 22:21 Holy Bible Amplified Version

It takes the two. It takes the two parts in this verse before you are blessed.

Number one is to stop.

Stop being independent and stubborn. Jehovah cannot and will not ever attempt to help someone who refuses help. We must yield our will and wants and submit unto Him.

The next part is just as difficult.

To submit ourselves unto Jehovah means we are to give Him total control over our lives like a horse submits to the reins of its rider.

Once these two difficult tasks are completed then come the blessing. The blessing may be a physical blessing but there is always a spiritual blessing. The spiritual blessing of course is that there is a lot less stress in your life because you trust Jehovah has control of your life. The same can be said for worry. Instead your life is filled with peace, contentment and a knowledge of security knowing we have a superior being directing and helping us live a Divine life.

Leaving it in Jehovahs hands is the better choice. He knows what He is doing while we only think we know what we are doing. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Hamelech ( Jesus my Lord King ) for blessing me with the privilege of being a humble servant of the most noble King. Please bless me to always have a submissive heart unto Your will in every aspect of my life. I give thanks for this blessing and pray for this blessing in Your majestic name. Amen.

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

Have You Ever Tired That?

a-praying-man

 Now it came to pass in those days that He went out to the mountain to pray, and continued all night in prayer to God. Luke 6:12 Holy Bible, New King James Version.

There are two important equations in this text.

The first one is that Jesus went out to a quiet place to commune with Jehovah.

For me the best place to pray where there is deep personal conversation with my Beloved is in Jehovahs Cathedral ( nature). After all where can you not be closest to Him except in His creation where the trees, flowers and streams sing of His peace and beauty while the birds are singing praises unto Him. It fills me with peace and calm. Being relaxed with Him allows me to not only be more open and personal with Him but also where the hustle and bustle of the city does not drown out His voice speaking to me.

The next part is where Jesus prayed all night.

Have you ever tired that? I mean praying all night.

I have prayed for a couple of hours but all night, wow. The only time I can remember praying continually is during intense agony in my life. Then I prayed continually for a week. Throughout it all He gave me strength to endure it and comfort that He was there with me.

Of course we realize that this was the time of Christ’s time of agony before His torture and horrible death on the cross.

So whenever you are in a intense crisis perhaps then you will be able to pray not only all night but for days at a time like I did. Then you too will be strengthened and comforted during your intense time of tribulation.

Prayer: I immensely thank you Jehovah-‘Uzam (The Lord is our Strength in Trouble) for Your patience in listening to the cries of anguish of a cherished child of Yours when we are enduring trials and tribulations. I thank you for Your Divine strength, peace and comfort that enabled me to not only endure them but to grow spiritually and mentally because of them. I exalt You in the name of He who sweated blood during His time of agonizing prayer Jesus Christ. Amen

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

The Best Cheerleader.

gods-word

God who gives endurance and who supplies encouragement. Romans 15:5 Holy Bible Amplified Version

In many group sports they have cheerleaders. Their purpose is to encourage the team, especially when they are down in the score.

The best cheerleader for life of course is The Holy Spirit.

He provides us with physical, mental and spiritual endurance for the race Jehovah has chosen for us to run. He has various methods to accomplish this from the Holy Bible , to preachers to fellow brothers and sisters in Christ.

It is when we are at our lowest that we appreciate the most Jehovahs helping hand. Joseph- Anthony: Green

The same can be said for encouragement.

I cannot count the number of times I was ready to quit and then someone came and blessed me with encouraging words and help to see me through the tough times. I cannot count the number of times when a preacher sounded as if he was speaking directly to me from Jehovah that it lifted me up and strengthen me to carry on with zest. This is repeated through music as well as just spending quiet time with Him.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Ezer (The LORD our Helper) for blessing me with the many wonderful ways You have encouraged me when I was ready to give up. Thank you for helping me regain my strength to carry on Your Holy path You have chosen for me to travel down. I exalt You in the name of He who encouraged His disciples Jesus Christ. Amen

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

It is We Not Me.

christs-family

 Then I said to them, “You see the bad situation that we are in—how Jerusalem is desolate and lies in ruins and its gates have been burned with fire. Come, and let us rebuild the wall of Jerusalem, so that we will no longer be a disgrace.” Nehemiah 2:17 Holy Bible Amplified Version

It is we not me.

Those that stand alone fall, those that stand together will with stand the strongest storms. Joseph- Anthony: Green

This is an important ingredient on your road to recovery. We all have destructive addictions. We cannot resolve them on our own, we need help. Therefore, it is we as in Jehovah and you not me that will provide the resolution.

How many of us make silly New Years Resolutions to quit these habits only to crash and burn when they try to accomplish it on their own?

How many succeed when they have councilors and trainers helping them?

The way to determine who is the best trainer and or councilor for you is to take it to Jehovah in prayer and be obedient unto His wise guidance. After all, who know you better the creator or the creation?

We will always fail in our attempts to live a Holy life because we are all imperfect.

Satan will use this opportunity to tear you down in an attempt to make you feel unworthy of being a member of Jehovah’s Holy family.

All is not lost.

Christ will never desert you. He will provide a way of restitution unto Him.

That , again , is why we need to surround ourselves with Godly councilors when we fall. They will not only help us deal with the reason for the fall but also help us to stand upon the Holy rock of Christ.

The wise will hear and increase their learning, And the person of understanding will acquire wise counsel and the skill [to steer his course wisely and lead others to the truth]. Proverbs 1:5 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Jireh (God is our Provider) for blessing me with wise councilors and trainers for my daily walk with You. They lead me away from catastrophes and towards Heavenly success towards my loving relationship with You and the Divine service unto You that You have chosen for me to take in my life dedicated unto You. I exalt You for this treasure in the name of the greatest provider Jesus Christ. Amen

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

It is Too Heavy

 

DELIVERANCE COMES FROM THE LORD

Cast your burden on the Lord [release it] and He will sustain and uphold you. Psalm 55:22 Holy Bible Amplified Version

We all encounter problems in our lives.

Too many of us falsely believe that we are weak if we cannot solve these challenges on our own ( especially men ).

Indeed in many countries it is considered a shame and disgrace to even admit you have a problem.

It is too heavy for you to carry on your own shoulders. That is where we Christians are blessed with an advantage over those of the world.

How many folks go to a psychiatrist with their problems only to be prescribed drugs , which of course only makes the problem worse. Look at all those who commit hienious offenses like mass murderers only to find out they were diagnosed with mental problems and were only given drugs. I have seen it numerous times in big cites.

How many go to psychiatrists only to be told it is not your fault but societies or your families while being absolved of their responsibility?

To sustain means to give support as does uphold.

The best councilor to go to is of course Jehovah. He is all wise and will help you the best and support you though the difficult experience. That will probably mean He will guide you to Christian councilors.

I have been blessed with this guidance and it was the most beneficial to me.

When you encounter problems in your life and we all will continually experience these plagues until Christ takes us to our Heavenly home ,you have a choice ; one try to deal with it on your own , good luck with that one two go to those in the world with limited knowledge , which usually is useless from those I have seen go that route or go to the best source form wisdom ,strength and healing Jehovah God Almighty. That is the most successful route I have taken as well as many others I have encountered.

Jehovah or the world choose wisely. Your life depends upon it. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Thank you YAHWEH- Ropheka : “The Lord Who Heals for blessing me with Your gently loving healing whenever I encounter any and all problems in my life whether it be through Your Divine will or whether it be through Your Divine providence to Christian guidance councilors and others that will assist me. I extol Thee in the name of the best Healer of them all Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Worry Leads to Impatience

god-is-already-there

Do not fret; it leads only to evil. Psalm 37:8 Holy Bible Amplified Version

To fret means to worry.

Have we not all fretted on more than one occasion?

I used to be a first class worry wort. If things did not happen in my time , I would take matters into my own hands. When the crash and burn happened my cry unto Jehovah was always the same : “ Jehovah , where were You , why did You not help me. “ He of course was not to fault but it was my own fault. It took me many years to wait upon His time , in His way.

I used to believe I was a patient man until I became a Christian and had to wait upon Jehovahs timing , not my own. Joseph- Anthony: Green

I believe not only was He teaching me patience but also to have and enlarge my faith.

Worry leads to impatience waiting for Jehovah to answer. Impatience leads to arrogance which says I will not wait for the Lords answer. This leads us to take matters into our own hands. This , of course , leads to disaster. Joseph- Anthony: Green

“O God, never suffer us to think that we can stand by ourselves, and not need Thee.” — John Donne

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Emunah (God is faithful) for blessing me with teaching me to always have faith and to be patient to wait upon Your time in Your way in every aspect of my life. I know You are faithful unto me to never leave me nor desert me. I praise You in the name of He who waited three days in the tomb before rising to eternal glory Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

If You Do This.

when-i-pray

 Trust in and rely confidently on the Lord with all your heart
And do not rely on your own insight
or understanding. Proverbs 3:5 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Here is perhaps the most important advice to be given in your life: “ Wait and pray. “

Before you sign any contract ask for a copy of it to take home to read over it. You will avoid the pressure sales talk that way which can and does lead to disaster. If they refuse to allow you this right do not walk away , run. The only reason they will refuse to allow you to study it is because it is a bad contract. They are experts and making poo poo look like sugar and prey upon foolish suckers.

A wise man depends upon Jehovah for guidance , a foolish man depends upon his own faulty thinking. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Before you read it , humbly pray for the Holy Spirits guidance. When you read it He will point out things that you do not understand or find acceptable. High light them with a marker. Then put it down and again, pray for understanding of what you do not understand and how to wisely discuss it with the other party to meet your satisfactory requirements and sit silently for His answer. Wait and pray before you sign on the dotted line. He may not answer you right away but be patient, He will answer you. When He answers you, write it down. Then , when you encounter the one making the offer have faith that His wisdom will secure you a favourable contract.

This is my modus operandi and it has prevented me from entering into many disastrous contracts.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah KalEl (voice of God) for blessing me with Your voice through the Holy Spirit when negotiating all contracts. Through this blessing You have prevented me from enslaving me in noxious contracts with snakes in the grass. I praise You in the name of He who saw through the shams of the Scribes and Pharisee’s Jesus Christ. Amen.

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