I am Afraid and Pray.

when-i-pray

 ‘Do not fear [anything], for I am with you; Do not be afraid, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, be assured I will help you; I will certainly take hold of you with My righteous right hand [a hand of justice, of power, of victory, of salvation].’ ”Isaiah 41:10 Holy Bible, Amplified Version

This one has taken me decades to have faith in. I believe in our early walk with Christ we all have doubts about the validity of His word. Do not be ashamed. Read your Bible. How long did it take Moses. Abraham and Jacob to be blessed with absolute faith in our Heavenly Beloved? Decades.

Now, when there is circumstances beyond my control that look like they are heading for certain disaster, I am afraid and pray.

Jehovah comforts and reassures me. He walks with me through them.

Sometimes they are averted by Divine will.

Sometimes I must walk through them, with the Holy Spirit by my side, because Jehovah is teaching me something through this experience.

Now, when the wicked ones scheme and plot against me I am afraid and pray.

Again, Jehovah comforts and reassures me. I am filled with Divine peace and strength to face them. In the moment of confrontation the Holy Spirit fills me with His infinite wisdom and the wicked ones go down in flames. They are infuriated and confused where I gained the wisdom and strength. Jehovah laughs at them.

It is natural to be afraid when these and other circumstances occur in our lives.

The best Christian defense is to pray, wait and obey and grow in faith. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer:Thank you Jehovah-‘Immeku (The Lord Is With You) for walking with me through my troubles, snares and sorrows whenever I humbly cry out to You. Thank you in the name of He who is my best friend that is always there for me 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.

Because of Them.

SPIRITUAL STRENGTH

 I thank God, whom I worship and serve. 2 Timothy 1:3 Amplified Bible

We all know that Paul suffered a lot during his ministry and I believe all true ministers (we do not have to go through seminary school to be ministers) of Christ do as well. I believe this is done on purpose.

The purpose of it is when any accuser steps forward and asks us what do we know of suffering we can give life experiences.

As well, who better to reach the suffering than those who have walked the path before them.

Faith is realizing that I am useful to God not in spite of my scars but because of them. –Pamela Reeve

It is said that a drunk that desires to be free of alcoholism will listen to an ex alcoholic before he listens to someone with a degree on the wall.

So, even though we may not enjoy our trial and tribulations, sorrows and snares whilst enduring them, please look at the big picture: Chances are, Jehovah is using this experience now to prepare you to use it to help others some where, some time in the future and that through this you may be the catalyst that brings a lost soul to Christ.

There is nothing anybody else can do that can stop God from using us. We can turn everything into a testimony. Corrie ten Boom

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Tsori – Lord my Strength for blessing me with Your divine strength to endure the suffering and pain that is inflicted upon on Your faithful servants. I praise You in the name of He who endured six hours of agony on the cross for me Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

He Will Pay Back Trouble.

cannot-outrun

 God is just: He will pay back trouble to those who trouble you. 2 Thessalonians 1:6 New International Version Holy Bible

Is there any trouble makers in your life right now?

You know they type, they are their happiest when they are causing trouble for everyone. When confronted about their despicable behavior they feign innocence, all the while laughing their wicked heads off on the inside. Many times it is a family member that is guilty of this which makes it all the worse.

Do not seek revenge nor feel anger towards them.

I know I feel anger towards them at first but then take it to Jehovah in prayer. He blesses me with peace and confidence that he is a just God and will repay seven time back to the perpetrator.

Then a deep feeling of pity for them envelopes me and I pray that the Holy Spirit convicts them unto repentance for their wicked behaviour before it is too late.

Sometimes they do repent sincerely and it is accepted graciously by me.

Sometimes they must still receive the punishment due to them ( for example if they ran a red light and hit my bicycle while drunk they must still face the consequences of their actions under the law).

Sometimes they just laugh at the “invisible boogy man God in the sky”.

As time slowly goes by I see the hand of Jehovah strike them with vengeance. Each time He inflicts His justice upon them it is worse than the previous one. Each time there is deep sorrow in my heart towards them for their arrogant foolishness as they needlessly suffer but I know there is nothing I can do about it.

Has someone intentionally done you wrong?

Yes you are to forgive them but you have every right to call down upon their head Jehovahs justice in the hopes that it will bring them unto repentance unto you, unto society and unto Jehovah.

Prayer: thank you Jehovah-Hashopet (The Lord is the supreme Judge) for the reassurance that there is no plea bargaining nor early parole for the wicked ones who delight in perpetrating evil wickedness upon innocent victims which many time the innocent suffer greatly because of. Please send the Holy Spirit unto them and convict them of their evilness to bring them to repentance before it is too late. I thank you and ask this in the name of the Supreme Judge of them all 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.

Pleasing to God.

goodness-is

 Do not neglect to do good, to contribute [to the needy of the church as an expression of fellowship], for such sacrifices are always pleasing to God. Hebrews 13:15-16 Amplified Bible

Have you ever held the door open for someone and they do not say thank you (indeed, I have had many women become down right nasty about it) and you feel hurt by it?

Do not feel hurt by it, take comfort that Jehovah sees your act of goodness and is well pleased by it.

Do not seek to please man (or woman) for it can lead to disappointment, rather seek to please Jehovah. He always appreciates it. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Have you ever helped someone that is having difficulty on a project and when it is completed they take all the credit for it, not even acknowledging your contribution? You feel used and abused.

Do not feel angry or hurt take comfort that Jehovah sees your act of goodness and is well pleased by it.

Have you ever worked hard to make a great meal for your family and they do not even say thank you for the effort and time you put into it?

Do not feel angry or hurt take comfort that Jehovah sees your act of goodness and is well pleased by it.

The list goes on.

Learning to do things to please Jehovah and not just to be kind and considerate to others comforts and encourages me all the time because I know it is appreciated to the one I love the most. That is why I enjoy doing good for others even when it is not appreciated.

No matter how big or small the good you do here on earth, they are all great in Heaven. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Heseh (God is love) for blessing me with an amazing loving relationship with You. Thank you for the most awesome teacher  (the Holy Spirit) who has mentored me into emulating Your love unto others. Just knowing my words and actions are pleasing to You my cherished love is all the reward I need. I exalt You in the name of He who pleased You the most by shedding His precious blood for my entrance fee into Your holy family Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

He did not see the big picture.

god-is-already-there

 

Their father Jacob said to them, “You have deprived me of my children. Joseph is no more and Simeon is no more, and now you want to take Benjamin. Everything is against me!” Genesis 42:36 New International Version Jacob did not know the big picture.

He believed his most loved son, Joseph, was killed by a wild beast. Now his sons were informing him he had to allow the son that had taken Joseph’s place to go to Egypt and possibly become a slave. He believed everything was against him.

Is that not the way we go sometimes.

We do not see the big picture and cry out to Jehovah and ask why He is against us, have we done something to offend Him. Why is He doing this to us?

That is where faith comes in. We do not understand why this is happening to us but we do understand we are Jehovah’s children and He loves us and will only do what is best for us.

I had an experience where my computer kept on shutting down for no reason (well at least not as far as a problem with the machine is concerned). It was taken to many computer stores and they could not fix it. I kept on calling out to God why He was doing this to me? I could not do my work like that. Finally, in exasperation, when the computer shut down I would spend time reading the Bible. While reading the Bible Jehovah was constantly talking with me.

It was only because of the computer problems that I read the Bible and Jehovah had the opportunity to talk with me.

Prayer: Please Jehovah KalEl (voice of God) bless me to always be attentive to Your voice calling to me. I know You speak for a reason and that reason is because You love me and there is something important You need to talk with me about. I sincerely request this in the name of He who always took time to listen to His Fathers voice Jesus Christ. Amen.

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