No One can Hurt Your

No one can hurt your feelings without your consent. No one can make you angry, disappointed, intimidated, or jealous.

Substitute any reactive emotion with the wisdom, strength and self control of The Holy Spirit. Whatever it is, no one can afflict you with it without your consent.

You can choose to see things differently when you depend upon The Holy Spirit to open your eyes to Jehovahs meaning instead of societies or your own faulty reasoning. It’s the only one you’ll ever need.

The people we interact with become how we treat them, more than we’d like to admit. That is why wicked company corrupts godly souls while godly souls mould us more into Christs character.

Where there are no boundaries in life, there is no respect for either you nor those around you. Joseph a son of Jehovah

May The Holy Spirit keep you from the wicked who drag you into the pig mire and guide you to the godly who help you transform into a beautiful child of Jehovah Joseph a son of Jehovah

I Was Pressured Greatly To

Do not love this world nor the things it offers you, for when you love the world, you do not have the love of the Father in you. 1 John 2:15 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Being a bit of an old geezer, I have seen oh so many fads come and go.

There was the hippy generation, the disco generation, the punk generation, and I have no idea what the generations from the nine teen nineties are called.

During one of them I was pressured greatly to conform to their lifestyle. I was bullied and laughed at a lot because of my refusal to join in the fun times.

It is interesting to see them now. They realize that lifestyle was meaningless.

Reflecting back on my walk with Christ in that time there are moments of pure ecstasy, there were many moments of suffering which brought me ever closer into Christ’s loving arm and engaged my trust in Him my adoration in Him, my love for Him and my dedication in service unto Him. This was good and pleasing unto my cherished Father in Heaven, King in Heaven and amazing tutor ( The Holy Spirit ) .

Mind you, this transformation will continue even in our Heavenly Home so do not think you are a finished product.

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

“I came to Him because I did not know which way to turn. I remained with Him because there is no other way I wish to turn. I came to Him longing for something I did not have. I remain with Him because I have something I will not trade. I came to Him as a stranger. I remain with Him in the most intimate of friendships. I came to Him unsure about the future. I remain with Him certain about my destiny. “Ravi Zacharias

Prayer: Oh my Beloved Jehovah Bara (The Lord Creator Isaiah 40:28 ) thank you for Your patient transformation of this rough piece of clay into the beautiful creation You intend for me to be. I look forward to experiencing what the finished product will be in Heaven. I extol Thee in the name of He who took twelve rag tag hilly billy boys from Galilee into a fire that set the world aflame two thousand years ago, Jesus Christ. Amen.

May you allow yourself to be transformed into a Heavenly creation. Joseph a son of Jehovah

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

I Meekly Implore You Jehovah Mauzzi

“What sorrow awaits you teachers of religious law and you Pharisees. Hypocrites! For you are so careful to clean the outside of the cup and the dish, but inside you are filthy—full of greed and self-indulgence! Matthew 23:25 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

When it comes to matters of religion, you probably have discovered that the most dangerous person in the Church is a hypocrite. You can’t tell them anything without a terrible reaction.

Unfortunately there are too many of these filthy marshmallows in every church.

They are quick to point out every little fault with all those in the congregation while perpetrating even worse sins in their own life.

When confronted with this they are like marsh mallows and welt in the heat. They take it personally like they are sweet angels and how dare you judge them by the same manner they judge others. They are like immature spoiled brats and throw a temper tantrum.

“Maturity is not based on age, but on the willingness to accept responsibility.”Dr. Edwin Louis Cole

These pretenders need to be expelled from the church until they repent or else they will destroy the entire congregation.

I have personally seen active and vibrant churches destroyed by just one of these wicked creatures so yes it is to be taken seriously.

Prayer: I meekly implore You Jehovah Mauzzi (Jeremiah 16:19 The LORD My Fortress ) to set up a strong impenetrable fortress around every church to keep the wolves at bay.

Please bless us with the grace and wisdom to take them to task when they are ripping apart Your holy family and, if necessary, expel them from the congregation for its survival.

We have enough outside Your church trying to destroy us, we do not need them inside as well. I respectfully request this in the name of our Church leader, Jesus Christ. Amen

May you be blessed with the tactfulness and strength to discipline and, if necessary, expel the destroyers of your church Joseph a son of Jehovah.

He Instructed Me To

Do not say, “I’ll pay you back for this wrong!” Wait for the Lord, and he will avenge you.” Proverbs 20:22 The Holy Bible, The New International Version

I may get in trouble for saying this but in my experience it is true.

When someone does a woman wrong in their eyes they are very spiteful and will do anything they can to make your life pure living Hell. Therefore they need to take heed of this verse.

Before I was a mature Christian if someone crossed me look out. I was the most devious, cruel creature you had ever met when I got my pound of flesh.

Then, one day the Lord spoke to me and educated me that I was playing god when I met out the punishment for those who offended me. He instructed me to leave vengeance in His hands because He knows if the culprit did it intentionally or not.

There is nothing like getting someone back who did the offence unintentionally. Boy, there is a lot of egg on the face then and a innocent suffers which is even worse).

He knows the offender and so knows how to met out the appropriate punishment. I have seen His strong arm met out punishment and it brought out terror in my heart because I knew that could be me if when convicted by the Holy Spirit I refuse to repent.

Revenge is best left in Jehovahs hands. He knows how to deliver true justice. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah El Gemuwal ( Jeremiah 51:56 The LORD GOD of Recompenses ) for blessing me with burning off of the dross of having a revengeful heart.

Although it is difficult at times I know that true justice will be served in Your time and in Your way.

During this time of waiting for Your justice to be delivered please bless the offender to come to their senses and repent of their crime so they do not have to suffer because of it.

I gratefully thank You and humbly request this in the name of He who washes the filthiest sins away from the repentant heart, 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

LORD GOD Of

These liars have lied so well and for so long that they’ve lost their capacity for truth.  1 Timothy 4:2 The Holy Bible, The Message

Boy do I know this to be true.

I know quite a few folks that in their younger years would occasionally lie like a rug to get what they want or to refuse to accept responsibility for doing wrong or to get out of doing their fair share of work.

“Maturity is not based on age, but on the willingness to accept responsibility.” Dr. Edwin Louis Cole

Now that they are old they cannot tell a complete sentence without lying. They are so arrogant they think they are smart but really they look just plain stupid.

As a result they are left friendless and miserable.

The sad thing is that because their minds are so perverted they reject the truth as lies and accept nothing but lies from others.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah El Emeth (Psalms 31:5) LORD GOD of Truth for blessing me with the truth and putting that application into my life. Many times it is difficult but in the long run it makes my life so much more fulfilling. I exalt You in the name of He who spoke nothing but the truth, Jesus Christ. Amen

May you be blessed with Divine enlightenment and the power to put it into your life. 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

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
