Growing Older Brings Us Closer to God.

A pair of red roses dancing in sunlight

It does not, therefore, depend on human desire or effort, but on God’s mercy Romans 9:16 New International Version                                                

Most times when we are younger we are cocky and depend upon ourselves more than we depend upon Jehovah.

As the years pass and we reflect how much our Beloved was walking with us through our trials and tribulations we respect and love Him more.

As we age we come to the realization that we will not be one this earth much longer and we have more aches and pains. We depend more upon our Cherished one and long to be with Him.

As a consequence growing older brings us closer to God.

Reflecting back I see a slow progression from self dependence to God dependence in my life. As well I see a deeper love, respect and admiration for my Beloved. I have grown closer to Him than I have with anybody or anything else. The consequence is a lot more peace, security and serenity in my life.

When the time comes for us to depart this world and we are laying in bed wondering if Jesus is real, if Heaven is real and if we are going to a Heavenly home the Holy Spirit comes to comfort and encourage us.

My salvation and my honor depend on God; He is my mighty rock, my refuge. Psalm 62:7 New International Version

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Chanan (God is gracious) for Your magnificent awesome infinite grace You have so richly showered upon me. Thank you for the comfort and encouragement of the Heavenly home You have so lovingly prepared for me to experience an eternity of love, joy, peace and good health with the one I so deeply love and long to live with. I exalt You in the name of my Heavenly king who is patiently waiting to greet me home Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

When the Devil Tries to Bring Me Down.

COMFORT IN HIS WORD

For we know that if our earthly house, this tent, is destroyed, we have a building from God, a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens. 2 Corinthians 5:1 New King James Version

 

News Flash: as we age our bodies break down until the final curtain is drawn in death.

 

One thing I have noticed amongst seniors in their waning years is a lot of bitterness because of their past.

 

 

There is no time like the present to confess our wrong doings and try to make things right.

 

Yet, I find that many stubbornly refuse.  Although I feel sorry for them, it is something they must confront and deal with. I can help them if they so desire but they must make the effort.

 

As many age the devil will try to taunt them with their past sins and convince them that they are filth in the eyes of Jehovah.

 

If you have repented and made things right do not believe his lies and merely inform him that you know Jesus has forgiven you and has prepared a Heavenly home for you. Then ask the devil to repent lest his eternal home be a very hot one.

 

When the devil tries to bring me down because of my past I just remind him of where I am going in the future. Joseph- Anthony: Green

 

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Emunah (God is faithful) for being faithful to Your promise to forgive us when we repent and welcome us to a Heavednly home You have faithfully prepared for us when we come to Your Divine Kingdom. I adore You in the name of the king whom I deeply love Jesus Christ. Amen.
