Who Has the Greatest Authority?

I TRUST GOD


 I sought the Lord [on the authority of His word], and He answered me. Psalm 34:4 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Who has the greatest authority ?

When you need answers to lifes problems who do you think has the greatest authority ( wisdom ) : Jehovah or a psychiatrist ? Jehovah is all wise while the psychiatrist is based upon human wisdom which is faulty. Therefore, which one do you think is the best choice to go to when you have problems ( now Jehovah may guide you to Bible centred therapists and or help groups.

When you need financial advice who do you believe has the greatest authority ( wisdom ) Jehovah who is concerned about your welfare or a financial advisor who is concerned about his commission and the financial institutional profits he works for ? Now Jehovah may guide you to Bible centred financial advisors.

Therefore when you encounter any and all problems in life should you not seek out the greatest authority ( wisdom ) and of course that is Jehovah hands down every time. When you ask , you must ask in faith and be prepared to obey His guidance or else why waste your time and His ?

You can see God from anywhere if your mind is set to love and obey Him. –A.W. Tozer

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Rabbi (God our Teacher) for Your Divine intercession with Your ultimate wisdom , strength and providence to bring resolution to all my problems. I exalt You in the name of He who taught His disciples amazingly Jesus Christ . Amen

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

Is Your Head Hurting?

RESTLESS HEART

 Why are you in despair, O my soul? And why are you restless and disturbed within me?
Hope in God
and wait expectantly for Him. Psalm 42:5 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Despair is the state of being discouraged.

Is your head hurting from walking into walls ? You know the feeling , like no matter what you try it is like walking into a wall. You are pounding the pavement looking for employment yet it seems as if every door is closed. You have tried all kinds of different medical treatment yet your ailment is getting worse. Of course there is the wonderful experience of raising teenagers and they refuse to listen to you ( that has been going on for eons. ) .

The list could continue for a long time couldn’t it ?

To hope for something is to believe in the future occurrence of (something).

We are children of the Supreme God , children. Take hope that He loves you and because He loves you He will come to your aid in Him time in His way. His answer may not be what you desire however He is far more wiser than you. As a consequence He knows what is best for you far better that you do.

I know, there have been many times when I desired something in my life and passionately prayed for our Beloveds blessing to have it come to fruition. He did not. At the time I was bitterly disappointed. In reflection I see the wise providence of His hand that if He had of granted me my desire it would have been a disaster.

On the other hand there have been event that I fervently prayed for every day for decades. Finally He blessed me that they blossomed into reality. Again I understand why it took Him so long to grant my request and am joyously grateful for His blessings.

“Every tomorrow has two handles. We can take hold of it with the handle of anxiety or the handle of faith.” – Henry Ward Beecher

Prayer : Thank you Jehovah-Jireh (God is our Provider) for Your Divine abundant assistance throughout my life. I thank you that You refused some requests that would have led to certain disaster and for answering those that bring about joyous events that will glorify You. I exuberantly praise You in the name He whose sacrifice answered my call for salvation Jesus Christ. Amen

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

While the Wicked are in My Presence.

DO NOT ALLOW THEM TO CONTROL YOU

I said, “ I will guard my ways That I may not sin with my tongue; I will muzzle my mouth While the wicked are in my presence.” Psalm 39:1 Holy Bible Amplified Version

This is great advice because the wicked love to trap you in your words and misquote you to start fights and then sit back and laugh.

I have encountered many who have a conversation with me about someone else only to take what I said and twist it around when they relay it to the person talked about. The purpose of this is to cause a fight which satisfies their perverted pleasure.

I have learned the hard way that when someone gossips about someone to me I just ask them a simple question which ends the filth right there and there : “ And what do you say about me when I am not around ? “ They have a look of shock and the conversation is abruptly ended.

Another thing I like to do is get a pen and paper and start to write down what they are saying. When they ask me what I am doing my reply is that I am documenting what they are saying so as not to misquote them if the other person comes to me about what was said. They squirm like a worm on a hot frying pan.

And finally try this one : “ It has nothing to do with me . “

I like to live by the saying : “ Be quick to listen and slow to speak. “ it keeps me out of a lot of trouble.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Mephalti (The Lord my Deliverer) for blessing me with Your Divine wisdom to keep my mouth shut around the wicked ones. In this way You have delivered me from their wicked schemes. I praise You in the name of He who refused to be trapped by Satan in the wilderness Jesus Christ . Amen

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

One Goes With the Other.

chief-duty

 And God is able to make all grace [every favor and earthly blessing] come in abundance to you, so that you may always [under all circumstances, regardless of the need] have complete sufficiency in everything [being completely self-sufficient in Him], and have an abundance for every good work and act of charity. 2 Corinthians 9:8 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Jehovah gives us so that we are to give to others. If you do not share then why should He share with you?

Jehovah will not provide you with abundance of earthly delights like a home you cannot afford or a new car with all the toys you do not need or expensive clothing you do not need but and abundance of spiritual blessings to complete the task He has intended for you in His divine plan.

“I exhort you, press on in your course, and exhort all men that they may be saved.” — Polycarp

The earthly blessings will be a time and place to accomplish His plan through you. It will also include the materials you need , like maybe a computer.

The only way to accomplish this task is with Divine wisdom , grace , meekness and humbleness which can only be received through you dependence upon Him. He will abundantly supply these things.

I have done more for the Lord through the simple things that Jehovah lavishly provides for me than through the gadgets the world offers. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Jireh (God is our Provider) for blessing me with Your daily providence to accomplish the tasks You have predestined for me to do for Your glory , Your kingdom and those who need assistance. I extol You in the name of He who provided for the four thousand Jesus Christ . Amen

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

In Every Circumstance

weary

 Peace I leave with you; My [perfect] peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Do not let your heart be troubled, nor let it be afraid. [Let My perfect peace calm you in every circumstance and give you courage and strength for every challenge.] John 14 27 Holy Bible Amplified Version

It amazes me when I reflect back on my times of trouble and see the Holy Spirits awesome hand silently at work through it even though it did not feel as if He even cared much less was there . We have been through financial drought , fire of sickness, anguish of losing a loved one so very close to my heart , the strength for battle when the forces against me out numbered me and out powered me .

In every circumstance Jesus is there even though many times it does not feel like it. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Oh cherished beloved child of Jehovah take hold of this promise and clasp it close to your precious heart , especially when it feels as if He is not there , during the raging storms and tempestuous fire storms that rage in your difficulties.

Do you truly believe that Christ would suffer that beating and the agony of hanging on the cross for six long tortuous hours while His precious blood ran down His Divine body because His love for you yet desert you in you time of need ?

Nay, say I , how foolish would that be ?

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-‘Uzam ( The Lord is our Strength in Trouble) for blessing me with Your Divine strength and provision in my numerous time of trials and tribulations , sorrow and snares. I praise You in the name of He who calmed the storms for His disciples Jesus Christ. Amen

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

You Meet the Criteria

JESUS' GUIDANCE

 But God has selected [for His purpose] the foolish things of the world to shame the wise [revealing their ignorance], and God has selected [for His purpose] the weak things of the world to shame the things which are strong [revealing their frailty]. 1 Corinthians 1:27 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Do you believe you are not smart enough to share the gospel or a Bible study?

Jehovah needs you for that exact reason. He uses the uneducated to shame the arrogant that profess to be wise. He shows that He is using you to show others what He can do through others and themselves. You meet the criteria to be useful in His kingdom work.

You do not need to be pretty enough, rich enough, a social elite or genius to do His work ( indeed , many times these are a hindrance ).

Do you have a heart that is willing to do His will and be obedient unto His calling in your life ?

Then , you meet the criteria to be His servant.

Have a sincere desire to serve God and mankind, and stop doubting, stop thinking negatively. Simply start living by faith, pray earnestly and humbly, and get into the habit of looking expectantly for the best. –Norman Vincent Peal

Indeed , I had no university degree when I went to service unto the Lord in Asia but had a willing heart to learn how to teach and was obedient unto His calling. In the process I was a much sought after teacher shaming many of the arrogant university educated ones who thought they were superior to me. It was a comical twist when these souls ended up coming to me the “ uneducated “ for advice because I knew how to teach in Asia ( through the Lords special class which took two years and a lot of effort and trial and error on my behalf) and they did not ( people in different parts of the world learn differently than from those of different parts of the world ) .

Jehovah can use the outcasts of society more than the elite because the outcasts know they need Jehovahs guidance more than the elite do. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Bara ( The Lord Creator) for taking a filthy lost sinner like me and creating in me a heart, mind and soul that is receptive to Your Divine purification and blessing me with Your Divine purpose. I exalt You in the name of He who transformed ignorant fishermen into world transforming disciples Jesus Christ . Amen

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

Who are You Walking With?

true-friendship

 He who walks [as a companion] with wise men will be wise,
But the companions of [conceited, dull-witted] fools [are fools themselves and] will experience harm.
Proverbs 13:20 Holy Bible Amplified Version

I find it quite humorous every time I see folks destroying their bodies with tattoos, body piercing and weird hair colouring just to look original when alls they are really doing is following the trends of the “ beautiful people “

This is not a new fade but has been going on for eons. I have seen many of them come and go in the decades I have been walking this planet and am always amazed at their foolishness. Sometimes when I meet someone I knew from a few decades back we always laugh at the silliness of it.

Children , the next time you are at grandma and grandpa’s house ask them to show you photo’s of your mom and dad when they were your age.

What is pitiful is seeing the older generation attempting to look young by keeping up with these silly fads.

The same thing can be said about the many disastrous choices we have all made because we were impressed by a Dapper Dan.

The wise learn from these ruinous experiences and seek out those who are wise and befriend them even though their lifestyle is not considered “ cool “ to those in the world.

The foolish persist in repeating the same ruinous pattern and choosing the same arrogant pretentious companions .

Choose your friends carefully because as they are so too will you become. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Pryyand (God is my friend ) for blessing me with wisdom to steer away from the destructive friends and towards Godly friends that we can share communion together as well as enjoy communion with You. I exhalt You in the name of my bestest friend Jesus Christ . Amen.

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