Keeping Our Eyes On

 We do this by keeping our eyes on Jesus, the champion who initiates and perfects our faith Hebrews 12:2 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

I have travelled a lot and taken only two routes.

The first one was to wing it. Let’s just go and see where the road will take us. Although it was adventurous, it was also very dangerous at times and there were many times I had to back track.

On the other hand, when I followed a map the journey was a lot less stressful and unnecessarily complicated.

Once we become Christians we depend upon Jesus to lead us where our Heavenly King desires His free will servant to go. During the journey He initiates circumstances which will strengthen our faith, trust, in Him. This causes us to trust Him more, respect Him more, appreciate Him more and most importantly, to love Him more.

How can you see where you are going? With keeping your eyes on the map and Jesus is the map? Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Roi (Psalms 23:1 The LORD My Shepherd ) for constantly guiding this gullible sheep that could easily be led astray if left on my own. Thank you for blessing me with fine tuning me to be ever more mature every day. I praise You in Your wise name. Amen

May love be in your life, may hope be in your heart and may peace be in your every day walk with Christ. Joseph a son of Jehovah T

Is Not a Real Christian

SERVING CHRIST

 Dear brothers and sisters,we urge you in the name of the Lord Jesus to live in a way that pleases God. 1 Thessalonians 4:1 Holy Bible, New Living Translation

A Sunday Christian is not a real Christian but a bench warmer. Sunday Christians are those that only have anything to do with Christianity on Sunday during a sermon (even then, how many are either sleeping or secretly playing video games during the sermon? How many are looking at their watches and wondering when the sermon will finally get over?).

Being a real Christian is the hardest commitment you will ever make. It means you live a life that will be mocked by those around you, especially family and friends. It means giving up your wants and desires for Jehovahs will in your life. It means suffering, hardship, and a lot of tears. Yes, this is a calling only for the weak, not the strong.                                                        

If you are strong you will depend upon yourself which only brings failure.

If you are weak you will depend upon Jehovah. That will not only bring success in His endeavors in your life but the greatest blessing of all, an extremely close relationship with Jehovah, Jesus and the Holy Spirit. It will bring you a fulfilling life and accomplishments like you would never dream of. It is the greatest of adventures there can ever be.

“Some Christians haven’t even attempted to think about whether or not they would die for Jesus because they haven’t really been living for Him.” — DC Talk

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Hamelech ( Jesus my Lord King ) for the distinction of being one of Your chosen subservient servant. I laud You in Your majestic name. Amen

May you always be blessed with the strength of the Lord in Your heart and in your mind. Joseph a son Jehovah

This does not make sense.

NOT TRY, TRUST

 Now Jericho [a fortified city with high walls] was tightly closed because [of the people’s fear] of the sons of Israel; no one went out or came in.  The Lord said to Joshua, “See, I have given Jericho into your hand, with its king and the mighty warriors. Now you shall march around the city, all the men of war circling the city once. You shall do this [once each day] for six days. Also, seven priests shall carry seven trumpets [made] of rams’ horns ahead of the ark; then on the seventh day you shall march around the city seven times, and the priests shall blow the trumpets. When they make a long blast with the ram’s horn, and when you hear the sound of the trumpet, all the people shall cry out with a great shout (battle cry); and the wall of the city will fall down in its place, and the people shall go up, each man [going] straight ahead [climbing over the rubble].” Joshua 6:1-5  Holy Bible, Amplified Version                                       

This does not make sense.                                                                           

How many times have we said that when Jehovah tells us to do unconventional things and how He will work in unconventional ways.                                                 

Think of how Joshua felt? Imagine going and tell this great battle plan to the people? He must have felt like they would laugh at him because he was insane.                                 

Think of how the people felt as the Jerichoians laughed at them while they were obeying Jehovahs ingenious battle plans. Of course we know how it turned out for Joshua but we do not see how it is going to work out for us when we obey Jehovahs unusual advice.    

But there are three things to notice: One: Jehovah will teach us during this event to have complete trust  in Him even when it does not make sense.

Two: because of the exceptional manner in which Jehovah completes His plans all glory goes to Him.

Three when we obey we will be a part of a fantastic victory that can only be accomplish through Jehovah.

Many times Jehovahs plans seem crazy to the world, which is one reason I like obeying them so much. Besides, I love being a part of those incredible adventures with Him, I like being His side kick. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you El Deah, God of knowledge, for blessing me with the awesome honour of being Your side kick in Your mind boggling plans both great and small. I praise You in the name of He whose Divine plan it was to sacrifice Himself for me before recorded time began Jesus Christ which still confuses those in the world today. 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
