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 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

He made a pit and dug it out, And has fallen into the ditch which he made. His trouble shall return upon his own head, And his violent dealing shall come down on his own crown. Psalm 7:15-16 New King James Version
We have all met, I am sure, those who delight in causing trouble. They love to cause fights between families, they love to cause fights between friends, they love to cause fights at work or school and they love to cause fights at public events (just look at soccer matches in Europe). They get their perverted pleasure from watching others fight and the grief it causes.
Give it time. It always comes back on them. And when it happens it always happens when they least expect it and at a very inopportune time (like say door crashers at a wedding reception or at a social event where it will cause them a lot of embarrassment.
The other thing I have noticed about them is that when they are young they believe they are getting away with it but as they age (it usually begins in their forties) they find themselves friendless. When they need companionship or help there is no one there for them.
Another thing I find happens is that they end up with tormentors (say a neighbour that is constantly playing loud music and doing things to anger them and laughing in their faces. Their lives are one of constant torment.
I have seen it too many times to count (that is one advantage of being older; we get to see them receive them fruits of their labours as it were). When confronted with these wicked creatures do not take things into your own hands but leave them in the hands of Jehovah. It may seem as if they are getting away with it and you may not see Jehovahs justice but be sure they will get what they have coming to them.
The seeds you plant today you will harvest in abundance tomorrow. Be careful the type of seeds you are planting. Joseph- Anthony: Green
When justice is done, it brings joy to the righteous but terror to evildoers. Proverbs 21:15 New International Version
And will not God bring about justice for his chosen ones, who cry out to him day and night? Will he keep putting them off? I tell you, he will see that they get justice, and quickly. Luke 18:7-8 New International Version
Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Hashopet (The Lord is the Supreme Judge) for promising and delivering on Your Divine word that You will ensure true justice is done to the wicked who persecute, harm and cheat Your beloved children. I thank You in the name of the King who will deliver eternal justice on the Day of Judgment Jesus Christ. Amen.
May the sweet sunshine of Jesus’ beautiful love bless you today and every day.
Watch and pray, lest you enter into temptation. The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.” Matthew 26:41 New King James Version
Satan is sneaky.
He does not destroy you all at once. He begins with little thoughts. They slowly grow like cancer. When they become cemented in your mind they lead to actions. These actions lead to destruction in the form of addictions, cheating and others.
So for example there is a beautiful woman at work. You catch a quick glance at her. You start thinking about her and become obsessed with her until you invite her out from a drink. The drink leads to a hotel room. The hotel room leads to an affair and then your marriage is destroyed.
The best defense is to memorize Bible Verses and have them written out and carry them with you. When the temptation comes, whip out the Bible verses and tell Satan to go take a hike while calling on Jesus to protect your mind.
Yes it is just as important to call upon Jesus.
Satan is smarter and stronger than you but is a wimp before Christ. Joseph- Anthony: Green
Pray for Jesus to destroy your bad habits because they are too strong to defeat on your own. I know. There was one in particular that had me enslaved. I tired therapy, diet, hypnosis and my own strength. They all failed. When I completely surrendered it to Christ the chains that held me were instantly smashed and I have never returned to that habit since.
Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Yeshua (God our rescuer) for delivering me from the destructive jaws of Satan and his minions. I thank you for this protection day by day, moment by moment. I with great gratitude give thanks for this magnificent blessing in the name of He who defeated Satan on the cross Jesus Christ. Amen.
May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.
