The Lord will watch over your coming and going both now and forevermore. Psalm 121: 8 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation
When I was a wee little boy there was a show in which the woman would hold up a mirror and claim to be able to see us. Sometimes I would cry out the she sees me in my underwear. It is funny to think of how naive I was back then.
But now, I know Jehovah, Jesus and the Holy Spirit really do see me.
That is good because when temptation comes I know they are watching and that is enough for me to run from it.
It is also good to know they see my pain and struggles. They come and comfort me and encourage me. They see me victories and come and share in the joy with me.
They also see when I am beginning to go astray and warn me of its dangers.
I do not fear Jehovah, Jesus and the Holy Spirit are constantly watching me, I rejoice in it. Joseph a son of Jehovah Joseph a son of Jehovah
Prayer: Thank you Jehovah El Roi. You are the God who sees ( Proverbs 15:3 ) for blessing me with Your ever present eye upon this child You love and adore so much.

Wisdom is having knowledge and putting that knowledge into practice. Joseph a son of Jehovah

“Then he said to them all: ‘Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross daily and follow me.'” – Luke 9:23 The Holy Bible, The New International Version.
When we become Christians that means we accept Christ as our King. Because Christ belongs in the spiritual realm and the world belongs to the physical world, because Christ dedicates Himself to others we must follow His lead and dedicate ourselves to serving Him by serving others where He directs us to.
That is contrary to the world which serves themselves.
This means we are in a constant battle with the world (including ourselves at times when we want to serve self instead of Christ . The cross was a place of torture and intended shame. That is what we can expect from those walking the Highway to Hell. They will daily mock us and try to shame us. They will do everything they can to make our lives miserable. This will be a daily experience.
Even though it is not enjoyable, we should thank them for this treatment. Because, the more they make us suffer, the more they drive us into Jesus’ loving arms.
Torture me as you may, you will not destroy me but make me an ever stronger servant of my loving King Jesus. Joseph a son of Jehovah
Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Immeka (Judges 6:12 The LORD Is with You ) for the tormentors in my life because they draw me ever closer to You which is the greatest blessing of all. I esteem You in the name of He with whom I love to commune with every day, Jesus Christ. Amen
May you be blessed with drawing from the spring of living waters of comfort, strength and encouragement to extinguish the fiery arrows of the wicked, Jesus Christ. Joseph a son of Jehovah
God did not give me a spirit of timidity orcowardice orfear, but [He has given me a spirit] of power and of love and of sound judgment andpersonal discipline [abilities that result in a calm, well-balanced mind and self-control]. 2 Timothy 1:7 The Holy Bible, The New Living Testament Version
If Jehovah did not give it to us then who did?
It was satan that gave us a spirit of timidity where we are afraid to speak the truth. He did this to prevent us from from speaking the truth and bringing the lost to Christ. He also did it so that the wicked ones could gain power over the weak and abuse them to greater degrees. This has been done through out history where if the people spoke up in the beginning bad things like the Nazi’s would not have happened.
It was satan that gave us a spirit of cowardice so we would not stand up to bullies. This created terrible situations for entire societies (look again to Nazism). As well, he gave us a spirit of cowardice and fear so we would not step out into the unknown world Jesus is leading us to in service to Him.
Jehovah has, through faith, given us power to conquer evil folks and love to reach out to the unloved. He has blessed us with sound judgment so we will not fall for his schemes and scams. He gave us a spirit of discipline so we can grow in power in His spirit to live Godly lives.
This means living a life of having a well balanced mind that is balanced by the Holy Spirits guidance.
We have calmness by surrendering ourselves to Him and allowing Him to keep us calm in tense situations.
Through the Holy Spirit we gain self control (sometimes He keeps us under control, sometimes He reminds us of when we are losing it and depends upon us to make the effort of maintaining self control). Joseph a son of Jehovah
Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Immeka (Judges 6:12 The LORD Is with You) for always being with me and helping me live a victorious life through You. I praise You in the name of He who I always try to imitate in every area of my life to bring You glory through my life just as He did, Jesus Christ. Amen
Wishing you a house full of sunshine, hearts full of cheer and love that grows deeper each day of the year. Welsh blessing
For the place where you are standing is holy ground.” Exodus 3:5 The Holy Bible, The New Living Testament Version
What made the place Moses was standing on holy ground It was not the place but who was in the place. And, the who that was in the place was Jehovah.
Have you ever stood on holy ground?
If you are a Christian you have. Every time you are with our Heavenly Beloved, you are on holy ground. It does not matter if it is your bedroom or your bathroom or in nature or on the bus or in your car. Where ever you are with Jehovah is holy ground.
Now when the conversation is over, the ground is no longer holy because our Heavenly Beloved is no longer there.
My favorite place to stand is upon the Holy ground with my most Beloved. Joseph a son of Jehovah
So when any cult tells you any place is holy ground do not believe them.
Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Abba (Jehovah our Beloved Father in Heaven) for blessing this child of Yours with the honour of standing on holy ground every time we commune together no matter where we are. I exalt You in the name of my holies big brother Jesus Christ. Amen
Christ blesses us with love, peace and joy. May you be blessed with many opportunities to share these with others today. Joseph a son of Jehovah
The Lord leads with unfailing love and faithfulness all who keep his covenant and obey his demands. Psalm 25:10 The Holy Bible,The New Living Testament Version
Those He leads He takes care of. He makes sure they have a place to stay, food and clothing. Because our Father loves us, He is happy to give blessings to us other than these.
That does not mean you will be living in a mansion or driving and expensive car or dining at fancy restaurants. But, you will be contented in your living arrangements because you will have all you need not all you desire which is a form of greed.
Someone who is faithful is someone who can be depended upon to keep their word of honour.
No one is more dependent than Jehovah. He has never broken any of His promises in over six thousand years. That sounds pretty dependable to me.
However, the catch is that we must keep His covenant.
What is His covenant?
First is that we show our love for Him by being loving and obedient children unto Him first and fore most above all others. We must obey His demands so we go where He tells us to go and do what He tells us to do.
Second, that we are loving towards others. We are loving towards them by being helpful, respectful, polite and firm when necessary.
When we are faithful unto Jehovah, He is innumerably more faithful unto us. Joseph a son of Jehovah
Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Rohi ( Jesus is our Divine Shepherd )- Psalm 23 that when I follow Your wise voice, You always lead me through the dark and dangerous valleys of life. I exalt You in the name of the greatest Shepard, 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
Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:7 Holy Bible New Living Translation
The best peace treaty there can ever be is the one between you and Jehovah.
The only way to accomplish this is to surrender your will to His. We are to do as He suggests. Jehovah is too honorable to demand, He is respectful and asks. We refuse to obey at our own peril. When we surrender our all to Him, He will bless us with peace, comfort, security and assurance.
Going our own way or going with the crowd only condemns you to a life of confusion, depression, worry, anger and fear.
“Being at peace with yourself is a direct result of finding peace with God.” Olin Miller
Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Shalom (the God of Peace) for blessing me with Your Heavenly Divine peace which no other can compare. I exalt You in the highest in the name of the Prince of Peace Jesus Christ. Amen
May your house be filled with joy in the morning and sweet dreams at night. May it be a home where love has come to live. Joseph a son of Jehovah
“For with God nothing [is or ever] shall be impossible.” Luke 1:37 Holy Bible, Amplified Version
I am constantly amazed with my Beloved at what He has done and is doing in my life. So many times He has done the impossible.
When I was an alcoholic and cried out unto Him in anguish to smash the chains of this horrible addiction He instantly smashed them ( that has been eight years without a drink).
When I prayed that my relatives would come unto Him, one has now returned to church for the first time in fifty years and she is bringing her friends to church who have gone just as long (that one took about thirty years of praying before He succeeded ).
When I prayed for bad dispositions to be exiled from me ( I was vindictive and spiteful) He guided me to good Christian councilors and between Him and them they were cast out from me with the help of the Holy Spirit. Now when they come a knocking I go to Jehovah in prayer and He releases me from the urge.
There has been so many times he has accomplished amazing things in my life that I believed were impossible.
Is there anything in your life you need help with but believe all is lost?
Completely surrender it unto Jehovah and watch Him accomplish the impossible in your life. “We have a God who delights in impossibilities.” — Andrew Murray
Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Jireh (God is our Provider) for blessing me with always graciously abundantly providing for me is so many amazing ways. I glorify You in the name of Your best provision, my Beloved savior Christ Jesus. Amen
May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.
