You will Keep in Perfect

 

You will keep in perfect and constant peace the one whose mind is steadfast [that is, committed and focused on You—in both inclination and character], Because he trusts and takes refuge in You [with hope and confident expectation].Isaiah 26:3 Holy Bible, Amplified Version

There is perfection in life. It can only be found in one place and that is in the arms of Jehovah. Joseph a son of Jehovah

There have been many times when I wanted to quit the assignment Jehovah had placed upon me to do for Him. It was only when, in refuge of prayer and communion with Him, that He instilled upon me to stay focused on Him and the strength that He blesses me with that the task was completed with gusto.

As well there is a completely enveloping of my entire being with peace.

Satan will always come to discourage us but when we stay steadfast both in our duty (which is an act of love) and Jehovahs character that we will succeed. It is when we take hold of Him and trust Him that we can do the impossible.

Jehovah will not give us work to do that He will not abundantly supply the tools and guidance to excel at the task until its completion. Joseph a son of Jehovah

In reflection afterword we are filled with awe, love and respect for Him.

When we place our hearts in the hands of Jesus He signs an unbreakable treaty of peace in our hearts which no other can compare. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Shalom (The Lord blesses with Peace) for blessing me with Your cherished Divine peace, strength and focus to complete every task You lay out before me with great gusto. I exalt Thee in the name of He who completed Your assigned task all the way to the cross with strength, peace and focus Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Cannot be Perfected Without Adversity.

 I have told you these things, so that in Me you may have [perfect] peace. In the world you have tribulation and distress and suffering, but be courageous [be confident, be undaunted, be filled with joy]; I have overcome the world.” [My conquest is accomplished, My victory abiding.] John 16:33 Holy Bible Amplified Version

We all suffer through trials and tribulations, sorrows and snares.

The difference is that those of us in Jehovahs family is there to comfort us, encourage us, heal us and guide us through them.

Those of the world depend upon their own faulty understanding, power and logic and or that of so called professionals to no avail. They suffer far greater.

The closer we get to Christ, the more we are going to suffer. The more we suffer, the closer we get to Christ. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Many times when we are enduring hard times and we call out to Jehovah it seems as if there is no answer. Do not be discouraged. He loves you and will not ever desert you.

When you reflect back on it you will see Jehovah burning off the dross (the bad dispositions in you) and teaching you.

This fills me with awe and amazing joy, love and respect that I have such an amazing God, it will you as well.

Of course there is going to be a battle between you and satan.

He sees you getting close to Christ and he is infuriated. He will show no mercy in his attacks to destroy this incredible loving relationship.

Sometimes Jehovah will allow you to fight your own battles and each time you do your warrior skills against this filth will be enlarged. You will sing for joy unto Jehovah in your victory. Think of Job at the end of his suffering. This will bring you closer to our Warrior King.

Other times the battle is too strong for you and the Holy Spirit will come  to rescue  you. Again your relationship with Christ will be closer than before.

“A gem cannot be polished without friction; the child of God cannot be perfected without adversity.” — Author Unknown

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Bara (The Lord Creator) for using adversity to polish off the dross in my life so that I am a beautiful jewel in Your eyes and in Your heart. I extol Thee in the name of the most precious jewel of all Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

There Were Times

 “Without any doubt the Lord is in this place, and I did not realize it.” Genesis 28:16 Holy Bible Amplified Version

You may be surprised at the number of times Jehovah was present and you were not even aware of it.

There were time when I was a baby Christian I used to love being alone in nature whether it be by a gentle stream, on the beach at the ocean, walking through the forest or in the desert. At these times when I would sit and drink in plentiful amounts of the stunning beauty a feeling of peace and love would envelope me. I naively believe it was because of being in nature. Upon reflecting back on it the realization came that that blessing was because God was there with me.

There were times when an overwhelming nagging feeling told me to take a different route to work or school. It felt as if an invisible force was guiding the route taken. Then upon arriving or later in the day there would be news of a catastrophe that occurred on that route. A sense that if I could have taken that route I would have been one of the casualties.

There were times of great sadness and or depression when a feeling of calm, peace and love would envelope me like a warm comforting blanket on a cold day. Upon reflection I realize the Holy Spirit was there supporting, encouraging, strengthening and loving me.

Today, take time to reflect back on your life and see how many times Jehovah was there with you and you did not even know it. It brings a new sense of awe, respect, love and admiration to our Beloved and draws us ever closer unto Him.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ‘Immeku (The Lord Is With You) for blessing me with Your Divine presence in my life. It is the greatest honour of all and has guided me on the proper walk in every aspect of my life. I exalt You in the name of He who walked amongst us Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

The Lord Favours

The Lord favours those who fear and worship Him [with awe-inspired reverence and obedience] Psalm 147:11Holy Bible Amplified Version

It may not seem like it many times in our walk with Christ that He actually favours us but let us look at it.

When hard times come, and they always do to both those of Christs and those who are not, we have the assurance that the Holy Spirit is there with us to comfort us, strengthen us and guide us through them.

When sorrow comes into our lives, as it always does to everyone from time to time, we have a comforter there who will comfort us, assure us and fill us with Divine love while those in the world do not .

When trials and tribulation comes our way, as it does to everyone from time to time, we have a Divine guide to help us through them while encouraging us and teaching us valuable lessons through them while those in the world do not.

When we go through times of loneliness, as all of us do from time to time, we have a Divine presence there to comfort us and love us while those in the world do not.

And, most importantly, when death comes a knocking at our door, as it does to everyone, we will have an angel to take our hand and escort us to a beautiful Heavenly home while those in the world do not.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireh ( God provides ) for the amazing abundant blessings You have daily blessed me with. I am so much in awe, reverence, respect and love with You for Your Heavenly gifts bestowed upon this cherished child of Yours. I exalt You in the name of the greatest gift You have blessed mankind with Jesus Christ. Amen.

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