There is Nothing Concealed.

TRUST IN HIM

 

So do not be afraid of them, for there is nothing concealed that will not be disclosed, or hidden that will not be made known. Matthew 10:26 New International Version

Since becoming close with Christ I have noticed a familiar pattern pattern emerge in my social contacts in every aspect of my life.    There have been so many times wicked individuals have, unbeknownst to me, laid traps for me, sometimes by themselves, others in groups.

Being naive and gullible as I am I was  always an easy mark for the wicked schemers and con artists.

However, the result was always the same.

 

The trap they laid for me I escaped from and they always fell into their own wicked traps. They were stunned and enraged at me. Many times they pretentiously fake innocence. They slowly learned not to attempt such foolish endeavors again. As well, they avoid me like the plague because they cannot get away with their scams. They are so dishonest they cannot function in any other way in their lives but to lie, connive, deceive and or manipulate others.

When you hear of the wicked and powerful thinking up ways to ensnare you, do not be afraid of them but have faith in the wisest most powerful protector of them all , Jehovah God. He continually will arrange circumstances so that you walk away looking righteous while others laugh at the wicked fools as they end up covered with protectorthier own dung heaped upon their faces.

 

I have experienced this at school, work, with family and in relationships. It covers all aspects of our social life, school life and work life.

 

The wicked think they are so smart as they lay traps for the righteous but God in Heaven laughs at them as He guide the righteous around the traps and the wicked fall into their own traps. Joseph- Anthony: Green

 

When you have a respectful, loving relationship with Christ He will protect you from such scam artists if you are obedient unto His heeding. This has been oh so true in my walk with Him.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Hoshe’ah (The Lord Saves) for rescuing me from the evil plots the wicked arrogantly lay before me to trap me. I joyfully thank you in the name of He who outwitted the Pharisee’s when they tried to outwit Him Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.

The Other Thing You Will Need.

GODS GUIDEBOOK

Please read Luke 4:1- -13 New King James Version                                                                                                                                                                    

And Jesus was led into the desert.                                                                                  

When the devil tempted Jesus in the desert Jesus defeated him by quoting from the Old Testament.                                                                                                             

That is why it is important to study the Bible, both the Old Testament and the New Testament.  

                                                                                                                        

The Old Testament shows the way.                                                                                   

The New Testament explains the old.                                                                                   

It is just as important to memorize and carry Scripture verses with you so that when the devil comes a calling you have your battle gear with you.                     

The other thing you will need it to pray for the blessing of understanding and wisdom.          

                                                                                                          

Knowledge is understanding what Jehovah is saying to us.                             

Wisdom is the ability to put the knowledge into our daily lives.                                  

Prayer: Please Jehovah KalEl (voice of God) please enrich me with Your divine knowledge and the ability to utilize it wisely into my daily life. I request this in the name of the wisest of the wise Jesus Christ. Amen.                                                        

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.

The Three Reasons.

TRUTHFUL LIPS

Light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.  For everyone practicing evil hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed. John 3:19-20 New King James Version

People refuse to believe the work of Christ in our lives and His calling in our lives for three reasons.

 

The first reason is because they do not want to hear the word of God. They do not want to hear it because it will convict them of their sin and they stubbornly insist on being independent and going their own way.

 

The second reason is because they do not want to hear the gospel their hearts and minds will be closed to what you are sharing with them so they will not understand. What you say will be nonsense to them.

The third reason is because they do not want to hear the word, they will not understand what you are saying so therefore they will not believe what you are saying.

Prayer: Please Jehovah KalEl (voice of God) bestow upon me the wisdom, grace and meekness to understand when peoples minds and hearts are closed to Your divine word so as to know when to cease wasting their time and mine. I request this in the name of He whose own townsfolk refused to listen to Him Jesus Christ. Amen.

 

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.

His Call Not Ours.

FOLLOW YOUR WAYS

It is God who works in you to will and to act according to his good purpose.” Philippians 2:13        

                                                                                                                        

Before you make any decision it is always best to take it to Jehovah in sincere prayer, faith and obedience.

 

In prayer you must sincerely ask for Jehovah to guide you where you are best suited to be. So if you want to be a computer programmer and Jehovah wants you to be an architect you will follow His guidance. It may not make sense to you at the time but in retrospect you will be glad you obeyed His calling.

 

For me I thought Jehovah was calling me to be a electronics technician but instead ended up learning natural medicine which I have used in many circumstances for over thirty years.

You must have faith that the Holy Spirit will guide you where you will best serve Christ.

So you may not understand why you are being led to be a carpenter instead of a nurse but then end up working on building homes for the needy in some distant country or in some disaster in your country which leads to a lot more fulfillment.

For me I never dreamed of being a teacher but have been used greatly by Jehovah in serving Him faithfully in China for ten years.

When you receive your calling you are to be obedient and go where he leads you.

Again, for me I never dreamed of being a teacher but have been used greatly by Jehovah in serving Him faithfully in China for ten years.

Prayer: Please Jehovah Rohi (God is our Sheppard) bless me with an obedient heart to obey Your wise staff as You divinely guide me through this life on the way to the good pasture You have prepared for this little lamb of Yours.       I meekly request this in the name of my most intelligent Sheppard Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.

The More Amazed I Am.

HE GIVES ABUNDANTLY

“For everything that was written in the past was written to teach us, so that through endurance and the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope” Romans 15:4 New King James Version

 

The more I read and understand the Bible the more amazed I am at how reverent it is in my life.

 

For example since learning in the book of Titus to warn a troublemaker twice, if they refuse to listen have nothing to do with them I have a lot less stupid arguments. I come to understand that they are their happiest when causing trouble.

When reading about Joshua and how he endured forty years in the desert because of the disobedient Israelites he ended up enjoying the gifts of a fruitful life in the promised land.

Whenever I get discouraged and read the Bible the Holy Spirit always leads me to encouraging verses or to situations where people in the Bible endured hardships and prospered.

For example I learned that when the disciples were in the storm and called out to Jesus He rescued them. He allowed them to encounter the storm to teach them to depend more upon Him. That is a great lesson for me.

 

Truly, the more I read the Bible the more amazed I am how much I see myself in its pages.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Chanan (God is gracious) for the amazing blessing of Your incredible book of knowledge, the Bible. Thank you for being so gracious as to open my mind and heart to the wisdom therein and to understand the experiences of those who have gone before me. I give thanks in the name of he who taught so much by quoting and explaining the scriptures Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.

The Best Relationship Advice

GODS FAITHFULNESS

Trust in the Lord with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding Proverbs 3:5 New King James Version

God knows not only you but the other person as well. There are many things in the other person that you do not see but He does. So therefore it is best to always trust Him in any and all relationships.   It will prevent a lot of heartache, frustration and suffering later on in your life.

 

That guy may be a smooth talker but in reality is an abusive jerk. Man have I ever met a lot of them.   Personally I have found those who like to dress in luxuriant styles are snakes in the grass.

 

That woman may appear to be sweet and innocent but in reality she is manipulative, domineering and a self centered emotional thief. They will suck the life out of you quicker that a vacuum cleaner.

 

That person may seem goofy because they are shy but when you talk with them you discover they are very wise. Many of the wisest men and women I have had the privilege to become friends with I at first thought they were are brite as a burnt out light bulb but were very intelligent,caring, respectful, loving and wise.

That person may seem like a snob but in reality is just a loner (just because we are loners does not mean we have mental problems either). I am a loner yet most people consider me very deep, caring and supportive once they get to know me.

Prayer: Please Jesus Rohi (God our Sheppard) guide me towards those who are loving, caring and respectful and away from the life suckers (those who suck the life out of you). I sincerely ask this in the name of He who was open to the loving ones and closed to the lurking wolves Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.

It Is Not Natural.

RESTLESS HEART

Don’t worry about anything; instead pray about everything; tell God your needs and don’t forget to thank him for his answers. If you do this, you will experience God’s peace, which is far more wonderful than the human mind can understand.” Philippians 4:6-7

 

Worry is natural, faith is not.

When we encounter problems in our lives worry is the natural tendency.

But consider this: how many times has worry solved your problems?

Praying to Jehovah Jireh (God our provider) and having faith that He will answer is not natural, it is spiritual.

 

From my experience it has taken many years to develop faith so strong as to never doubt and even then doubt still occurs sometimes. It started out with little things that were prayed for and were answered. Gradually over time bigger and bigger challenges are given over to Jehovah and faith grows stronger.

 

Another help is to pray and ask the Holy Spirit to bless you with the power to have faith.

And of course, do not forget your manners and say thank you.

After all, why should Jehovah give to an ungrateful whining child?

An added bonus in being grateful is that the more grateful you are the more your life is filled with joy at both the smallest and the biggest answered prayers and the more joyous your life is in general.

Oh yeah, another bonus is how amazingly close you become with Jehovah Abba (God our father).

 

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Shalom (God of peace) for the blessing of amazing peace You envelope me in as I place my life in Your gracious hands. Please remind me to always humbly give thanks for Your abundant blessings as they come. I give thanks for these blessings and ask for this blessing in the name of He who had faith total in You as he walked amongst us Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.
