He is There.

HE GIVES PEACE

 

 

Turn to me [ Lord ] and be gracious to me, For I am alone and afflicted. Psalm 25:16-17 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Have you ever moved into an apartment by yourself ?

I have.

The first night the apartment seemed so big , even though it was small , dark and lonely. I prayed unto Jehovah , took out my Bible and read His reassuring words that said He is there. It was quite comforting , reassuring and blessed me with a good nights sleep.

The same thing happens to widows and widowers when their life long soul mate passes on to the other side. The loneliness is overpowering. Those who take solace in Jehovahs loving arms find peace , comfort and strength.

Have you ever moved to a different community , or to a country where they do not speak your language , have different customs and you know no one ?

I have.

It seemed so overwhelming ,scary and lonely ( indeed there were a few circumstances where there was no newspapers , radio stations or TV in my native language { this was before they had the internet } ). Boy were those some rough times. Throughout it all there was constant prayer and Jehovah blessed me with strength , courage , peace and reassurance that not only got me through it but helped me thrive in it. He kept on assuring me that He was there.

Precious child of Jehovah , whenever you feel alone and dejected take it to our Father in Heaven who loves you and cares about you so very much. Have your Bible close by. He will sometimes just envelope you in His Divine love and peace . Sometimes He will guide you to Bible Verses which will comfort , reassure , strengthen you and fill you with His love , peace , security and strength to see it through.

For the eyes of the Lord move to and fro throughout the earth so that He may support those whose heart is completely His. 2 Chronicles 16:9 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Heseh (God is love) for blessing me with Your abounding love and assurance when it seems like such a cold dark world. I praise You in the name of He who is the light of the world Jesus Christ. Amen

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

You Cover and Shelter Them

DANCE FOR JOY

 But let all who take refuge and put their trust in You rejoice, Let them ever sing for joy; Because You cover and shelter them, Let those who love Your name be joyful and exult in You. Psalms 5: 11 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Refuge is defined as a shelter or protection from danger or distress. We as children of Jehovah have free access when ever it is needed under His almighty protection from Satan and his minions.

That does not mean we will not under go times of trial and tribulation, sorrow and snares. These are required of every child to grow strong in our walk with Christ in our ability to with stand them and to have confidence in Divine intervention when they are too strong for us to withstand. The result of this is to be filled with love , admiration and joy towards our awesome God. We cannot but in exhalation sing songs of love and joy as a gift of gratitude towards our Heavenly Beloved.

Jesus is moved to happiness every time He sees that you appreciate what He has done for you. –Ole Hallesby

Prayer: I extol You oh Jehovah-Gador Milchamah ( The Lord is Mighty in Battle ) for the uncountable times You have come to my aid and rescued me from certain destruction the oh so many times when Satan or his minions have unmercifully attacked a weak soul like me with Your ultimate power. I thank You for the countless times You have allowed me to walk through the fire and You were there with me in my each and every time. I exalt You in the name of He who never deserted His disciples Jesus Christ . Amen .

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

Cast All Your Anxiety on Him.

calms-the-storms

 Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you. 1 Peter 5:7 Holy Bible, New International Version

When ever a crisis occurs or a stressful moment occurs I pray for Jehovah to bless me with peace, patience and faith. Every morning during prayers I always ask for wisdom in how to properly handle any and all stressful situations.

Usually He answers me without my knowing during the situation but upon reflection I always thank Him for the blessing.

Sometimes I can be short tempered (yes it happens to us all) and apologize for it to those offended and to Jehovah with deep regret and ask Him to help me the next time (which He has in how to remove myself from stressful situations and people- yes there are toxic people that love to push our buttons and we are to avoid them whenever possible).

Many times I go to a quiet place in nature with my Bible. Nature calms me down and after pouring my heart out to Him a feeling of peace envelopes me and He guides me to verses in the Bible and with wisdom in what He is saying on the proper course to take to handle the situation in a Christ like manner.

I do them same thing for every problem and worry.

Worry does not empty tomorrow of its sorrows; it empties today of its strength. Corrie ten Boom

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Mephalti (The Lord my Deliverer) for blessing me with Your Divine deliverance from all worry, stress and short temperance with Your Holy peace, wisdom and strength. I exalt you in the name of He who is the greatest Deliverer of all Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

He Washes Them Away.

waterfalls tumbling into chartreuse lake between exotic trees

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

Have you ever sat by the shore of a lake or ocean?

I like to sit there and relax. As the waves go out they grab my anger, fear, frustration, worry and sorrow and carry them away. I believe that is a gift from Jehovah as He washes them away. As the waves come in they fill me with peace. I believe that is a gift from Jehovah as He fills me with His divine peace love and joy.

Now, we do not need an ocean or lake to experience this blessing but it is experienced its most effective in nature. Try sitting by a small creek with little rapids or a quite forest or a quiet meadow.

Here is the formula I use: first I close my eyes and bawl my eyes out unto my Heavenly Father what ever the problem is. Then I sit there quietly while He blesses me with enveloping me in His loving, comforting arms. Once He has filled me with His Divine peace I slowly open my eyes and He reveals all the beauty around me He has created. Every time there is an over whelming feeling of love, joy, peace and awe. I fill at one with my Beloved and cannot but help shout out “ I love You oh Holy Father, I love You.” It is truly the most amazing experience I have ever been blessed with.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Shalom (The Lord blesses with Peace) for Your blessings of bountiful peace during the storms that crash around me and the fires that surround me through out my walk with You. I magnify You in the name of the Price of Peace Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

That is Surpassingly Good.

SEEKING JEHOVAHS ADVICE

 For God [who is the source of their prophesying] is not a God of confusion and disorder but of peace and order.1 Corinthians 14:33 Holy Bible, Amplified Version

When I was a teacher there were many times my teaching plans failed miserably. During break I would sit down alone in the stairwell and pray for Jehovahs guidance. I would return with a feeling of peace and return to the classroom during the second half of the class and we would be rocking. The students caught on fast and it would be a great class.

This scenario has been repeated numerous times in my walk towards Heaven and can only be contributed to one thing: It was a divine blessing of peace and wisdom from Jehovah.

There is no situation so chaotic that God cannot from that situation, create something that is surpassingly good. Handley C. G. Moule

Does it seem as if nothing is making sense in your world right now? You may be surprised at just what Jehovah is doing behind the scenes that you are not even aware of.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah KalEl (voice of God) for speaking to me in Divine wisdom and for guiding me into unseen places by my eyes that You know exactly what You are doing. I extol You in the name of He who lead His disciples so wisely Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

A Miserable Business!

God is already there.

 There was a man all alone, he had neither son nor brother. There was no end to his toil, yet his eyes were not content with his wealth. “For whom am I toiling,” he asked,  “and why am I depriving myself of enjoyment?” This too is meaningless  a miserable business! Ecclesiastes 4:8 Holy Bible, New International Version

At one time I worked hard and deprived myself just to save up a nice size nest egg for retirement. Each time the nest egg began getting sizable a circumstance beyond my control wiped me out. What was my reward for all that hard work and depriving myself of simple pleasure along the way?

Nothing.

Better one handful with tranquility than two handfuls with toil and chasing after the wind. Ecclesiastes 4:6 Holy Bible, New International Version

It took me two decades and a lot of hardship to learn to place my complete confidence in Jehovahs care. Many times along the way He gave me blessings that I did not believe were blessings but curses. In this process He was teaching me to be dependent upon Him and not just call Him when I needed Him.

So for example I would teach a class and if it turned out to be a difficult class then ask for His help and he would not answer. That was my way and it was a disaster. I learned to ask Him to guide me completely, not just in making up the lessons but in the delivery in teaching them. That way was a success.

It was in this slow and at times agonizing process that I learned to put my complete trust and confidence in Him.

“But blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord, whose confidence is in him. Jeremiah 17:7 Holy Bible, New International Version

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Jireh (God is our Provider) for abundantly blessing me with Your never ending provisions for my daily life. I extol You in the name of my beloved King Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

We Understand Them.

gods-help

 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 14:27Amplified Bible

We understand them but they do not understand us.

Many in the world look at Christians and see joy, purpose and love. They do not understand and think we are crazy. With all the poverty, wars and diseases plaguing this planet how can we be so positive?

They do not understand us.

We understand them because we were at one time just like them. Then we were blessed with the saving grace of Christ and freed from such cancerous life of worry, anger and disappointment. Now the Holy Spirit blesses us, even in the most difficult times, with a peace, love and joy that can only be attained by His Divine presence in our daily lives.

We as Christians are not to lord it over our family and acquaintances because of this but instead are to steadfastly pray for them and try to guide them to the Prince of Peace, even when they reject us, mock us and persecute us for our walk to Heaven with the Holy Spirit as our Heavenly guide.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Shalom (The Lord blesses with Peace) for blessing me with Heavenly peace in all aspects of my life. I praise you in the name of the Prince of Peace Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Counsel and Understanding are His.

GODS ASSURANCE

 “To God belong wisdom and power;  counsel and understanding are his. Job 12:13 Holy Bible, New International Version

Where do you go for counseling?

Some go to psychiatrists but they receive their flawed understanding from man. How many of them deal with your problems by pushing drugs on you?

I prefer to go to Jesus. The wonderful thing about Jesus is not only His infinite wisdom and power but because He suffered as we have He has been there and done it He understands everything we endure. Perhaps that is why He is called a wonderful councillor. Now He may guide you to qualified Christian counsellors or through His word and power along with His wisdom He may assist you on His own. I was blessed that He provided me with both.

Some go to these questionable counsellors you see on TV. But can they provide you with the wisdom and power that Christ can or do they go for TV ratings and your pocket book?

Some go to self help books but again, can they and do they give you individual counselling? Do they know you intimately like Jesus does? Do they love you like Jesus does? Can they bless you with power like Christ does?

Whenever I have a problem I always go to Jesus and He has a hundred per cent successes rate with me.

God delights to meet the faith of one who looks up to Him and says,“Lord, You know that I cannot do this—but I believe that You can!” –Amy Carmichael

How about you, where do you go for the best counselling?

Almighty God, who hast promised to hear the petitions of those who ask in thy Son’s Name: We beseech thee mercifully to incline thine ear to us who have now made our prayers and supplications unto thee; and grant that those things which we have asked faithfully according to thy will, may be obtained effectually, to the relief of our necessity, and to the setting forth of thy glory; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. BOOK OF COMMON PRAYER

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ‘Ori (the Lord is my Light) for blessing me with lighting the way of life You have chosen for me to travel and for Your amazing wisdom and guidance to prudently resolve all the problems that darken my life. I extol Thee in the name of He whose light guides us to You and our Heavenly home Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

He also Brought Me Up.

CHRISTS POWER

He also brought me up out of a horrible pit, Out of the miry clay, And set my feet upon a rock, And established my steps. Psalm 40:2

mire a troublesome or intractable situation, heavy often deep mud or slush Merriam Webster dictionary

When I was a tree planter and we worked in deep mud it clung to our boots and made walking extremely labourous and difficult. Clay clings to you when wet and hardens like cement when it dries out.

What situation are you in that is clinging to you and dragging you into exhaustion, frustration and desperation? Is it a habit that is destroying your life?

You do not need self help groups or satanic politically correct filth that teaches that if you work real hard you will conquer whatever problem you have in your life.

You need the power of the Holy Spirit which Jehovah abundantly blesses us with when we surrender it unto Him. Now it may happen instantaneously or it may take a while.

When I surrendered the destructive addiction of alcoholism to Jehovah the Holy Spirit instantly crushed it and expelled it from me. When I decided to quit smoking it was a daily battle (at the time of this writing it has been two months and the struggle is still continuing). Some times I gave in and had a smoke but the determination is there to destroy this filthy habit. I know it cannot be done by my own will power but by working with the Holy Spirit we will eventually eternally eliminate it from my body.

For a righteous man may fall seven times And rise again. Proverbs 24:16 Holy Bible, New King James Version

Either way, the Lord will bless you with firm footing to not only destroy the wicked destructive habit but He will bless you with a new firm path that leads you to a deeper love and appreciation for Him. When that happens and you encounter someone else trying to battle a destructive habit it is your duty to give testimony of how Jehovah freed you from your slavery and encourage them lovingly.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Mephalti (The Lord my Deliverer) for blessing me with delivering me from destructive habits that were too strong for me to conquer on my own by Your mighty power. I exalt Thee in the name of He who is the name we call upon to rescue us from all devastating weaknesses Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

To Find True Rest.

HE GIVES ABUNDANTLY

Yes, my soul, find rest in God; my hope comes from him. Psalm 62:5 Holy Bible, New International Version

Where do you go to find rest in this face paced shallow world.

To find true rest from anxieties of finances I go to Jehovah and He guides me to the comforting and best financial advice there is in the Bible (number one is to never go in debt. Save for it and be patient).

When the stress of relationships weighs me down like a rock around my ankles and thrown into the sea I go to Jehovah and He guides me to verses in the Bible on how to handle difficult relationships (many times the advice is difficult to follow but will lead to a lot less stress, fights and bitterness in life. I know His advice has improved my relationship peace tremendously by teaching me how to avoid or handle the ones who suck the life out of you).

When I encounter health problems I go to Jehovah and He guides me to Bible verses that teach me proper diet and exercise (both mentally and physically). I know when it is time for me to depart from this world I will go to Jehovah and He will guide me to Bible verses that comfort and reassure me He is waiting to guide me home upon my departure from this world.

Where do I go to find Divine rest while enjoying heavenly communion with my Beloved Father?

Why, in Gods Cathedral of course.

And where is this amazing Cathedral?

Any place in nature.

My preferred places are in an isolated beach, my a quiet gentle little rapids or in a forest or laying under the summer stars.

It is when I am in the beauty of His creation that the weight of the world disintegrates to be replaced with Gods amazing peace and love. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Heseh (God is love) for the amazing privilege of communing with You in Your awesome creation. Thank You my love for the comfort, strength, wisdom, healing, peace and encouragement that You bless me with when I pour out my aching heart into Thy loving arms. I deeply thank you my Love in the name of my Heavenly Healer Jesus Christ. Amen.

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