Even When He is Silent.

 Believe in the Lord your God, and you will be able to stand firm.2 Chronicles 20:20 Holy Bible, New Living Translation

There has been so many times in my life when Jehovah was silent.

Yes in every one of the occurrences He was testing me. Testing my faith in Him.

He made me a promise, would I hold true faith in Him that the promise would come true even when it seemed as if everything was going the opposite way in which He promised?

Testing my patience. He promised that certain events would occur yet for what seemed like the longest time (a couple of years) there was no action and the opposite of what was promised was happening and I was suffering because of it.

In each instance I cried and cried out to Him yet He was silent.

I thought He was angry with me yet He remained silent. I stood firm in my Beloved even when it seemed He was either silent or indeed working against me. In the end in every situation He held true to His word.

So, if Jehovah is silent, take heart. He is not angry with you and will never desert you. Have faith child, have faith. Victory is your in Jehovahs time, in Jehovahs way.

  “I believe in the sun even if it isn’t shining. I believe in love even when I am alone. I believe in God even when He is silent.” — Author Unknown

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Emunah (God is faithful) for blessing me with teaching that even though there are times when You are silent, You have not deserted me and are working a wondrous victory for me and are maturing this child of Yours. I exalt You in the name of He who worked amazing deeds even when others though He was silent Jesus Christ. Amen

Christ blesses us with love, peace and joy. May you be blessed with many opportunities to share these with others today.

Enter Fully Into that Difficult Existence

FRUIT OF THE HOLY SPIRIT

The Spirit alone gives eternal life. John 6:63 New Living Translation Bible

There is no good going to a retreat and meditating on your belly button lint to get in touch with your inner self and then going back to everyday life. These week retreats are nothing more than a waste of money in my opinion. If you desire a spiritual life it must be a full time commitment to the Holy Spirit. You will not receive one from the Buddhists.

It will be a difficult existence because you are in a different world than those around you. You will be in tune with the voice of Jehovah, Jesus and the Holy Spirit. To obey these three is complete nonsense to the world.

We have the Charity of God beat within us as it beats with in the heart of He who showed us what it looks like when He walked amongst us Jesus Christ. That is we are called to suffer long (this means , we are kind; we envieth not, we are not puffed up, we seek not our own, we are  not easily provoked, we think no evil, we rejoice not in iniquity, but in the truth; we bear all things, believe all things, hope in all things, endure in all things.

“The spiritual life is a stern choice. It is not a consoling retreat from the difficulties of existence, but an invitation to enter fully into that difficult existence, and there apply the Charity of God, and bear the cost.” — Evelyn Underhill

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Chatsahi (The Lord is my Strength) for blessing me with the strength to not only endure but to prosper during the times of suffering for You as Your precious son suffered for me. I exalt You in the name of He who gladly suffered for me Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Hold On to It

GOD IS IN THE FURNACE WITH US

Do not let your heart be troubled (afraid, cowardly). Believe [confidently] in God and trust in Him, [have faith, hold on to it, rely on it, keep going and] believe also in Me. John 14 1 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Many times when in times of trouble, sorrow or worry I held on to Christs strong, loving hand like a man holding onto the rescuers hand as he hauls me out of a swift raging river that threatens to engulf me. He always pulled me through.

Many times when Christ, my King took this servant of His to worlds unknown it was extremely terrifying. Yet, there was His strong hand gently in mine guiding me through it.

It has taken decades to learn and trust my Savior no matter what comes my way because of the knowledge and faith that His hand is in mine and He will never let me go.

Whatever comes your way always pray first unto our loving, caring Heavenly King for reassurance of His presence through this trauma. He will bless you with peace, and assurance that He is there with you. He is walking with you through every event both good and bad.

Today, why not heart feltly thank Him for the times He has been with you in the past (both that you knew of and the times He was there that you were not even aware of) as His gentle strong hand led you through all of your difficult times.

If you are going through difficult times now, call out to Him and rest in His strong but gentle loving bosom.

Jesus is always there, Jesus always cares. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ‘Uzam (The Lord is our Strength in Trouble) for blessing me with Your strong gentle hand being in my feeble hand as we walked together through all of my difficult times both great and small. I am eternally grateful for this gracious loving gift. I praise You in the name of He who encouraged and strengthen His disciples as He walked with them, Jesus Christ. Amen

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love fill your heart today and every day. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer Must Be

A PRAYING MAN        

 

Prayer is the communion of the regenerated soul with its Divine Parent.

Prayer is God’s own instituted means of obtaining blessings from Him, the Fountain of life.

Prayer must be sincere—we must really be desirous to obtain the blessings we ask.

Prayer must be holy—for if we “regard iniquity in our heart, the Lord will not hear us.”

Prayer must be pious—seeking to obtain blessings, not for our own gratification merely—but for God’s glory. Prayer is a relief and comfort to the troubled soul. Prayer must be importunate—for it is the effectual, fervent prayer of a righteous man, that prevails.

Prayer must be submissive—asking only for what it is God’s will to bestow. Prayer must be in love— love for our Heavenly Father and prayer for our fellow man, whether they be in Jehovahs Divine family or not. Prayer must be reverent—for our God is a consuming fire.

Prayer must be humble—for we are base, and sinful, and unworthy to lift up our eyes to heaven.

Prayer must be persevering—for men ought always to pray, and not to faint.

Prayer must be particular—for generalities mean little or nothing.

Prayer must be universal—entering into everything, all the concerns of life, all the means of grace.

Prayer must be of all kinds—social, domestic, private, spontaneous but never ritualized for that is a stench and insult to our Heavenly Beloved. Prayer must be grateful—abounding in thanksgiving.

Prayer must be expectant—waiting and watching for answers.

Prayer must be believing—we must ask in faith. Prayer must be consistent with the Word of God —we may ask for everything God has promised.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Immanuel (God is with us) for the ultimate treasure, the Your loving gift of communion with You through prayer. It is a precious jewel that I carry close to me, not just in our morning and evening conversations but those which we share throughout the day. I praise You in the name of He with whom I deeply desire to walk with and talk with every day Jesus Christ, my best friend. 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

This Is a Dangerous Action

FURNACE OF HELL

 

 While you have the Light, believe and trust in the Light [have faith in it, hold on to it, rely on it], so that you may become sons of Light [being filled with Light as followers of God].”Jesus said these things, and then He left and hid Himself from them. John 12:36 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Because the people refused to believe in Jesus He walked away from them. This is a dangerous action we all need to comprehend, especially those that claim to be His followers.

Without faith, which means trust, in Christ in every aspect of your life you are useless unto Him and He will walk away from you.

Now, we all have doubts but overriding them is the belief that Jesus is real an a part of our life.

When we are baby Christians it is a common occurrence to have weak faith. Faith comes from experience.

But, we are expected to continuously grow in our faith as Jehovah continuously shows Himself faithful unto us.

To do anything less is to deny Jehovah’s faithfulness unto you which is a horrendous sin. He will only tolerate it so long and then wash His hands of you and walk away. This is the most disastrous occurrence that can occur in anyones life and has Hell for its reward.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Emunah (God is faithful) for always being faithful to this child of Your with whom You so deeply love. Please bless me to continue to strengthen my faithfulness in You as this draws me ever closer into Your loving arms. I humbly request this in the name of He who was faithful unto You all the way to the suffering, humiliating cross Jesus Christ, my Beloved Savior. Amen

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love fill your heart today and every day. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Therefore We Must Be.

                                     

 Now faith is the assurance (title deed, confirmation) of things hoped for (divinely guaranteed), and the evidence of things not seen [the conviction of their reality—faith comprehends as fact what cannot be experienced by the physical senses]. Hebrews 11:1 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Faith means to trust.

Have you ever layed out under the stars and be amazed at it all and wonder how Jehovah created them all? It is above our capabilities to understand it and we are left with nothing but faith in His Word that it is true.

Have you ever wondered why there is such importance in sharing love to make our lives complete? We cannot truly explain it, we must have faith in Jehovah’s word.

Have you ever wondered why Jesus would suffer and die for one such as you? I we look at it and think if we could or would make such a horrendous sacrifice and realize we could not it is above our comprehension that Christ did. That is why we must have faith in His word.

Have you ever wondered what Heaven is like, what it is like to be in constant communion with Christ? That takes faith to believe Jehovah is true to His word and it shall indeed be an eternal grandest event in our lives.

“Nothing true or beautiful or good makes complete sense in any immediate context of history; therefore we must be saved by faith.” — Reinhold Niebuhr

Prayer: Oh my most grandiose Jehovah-Bara (The Lord Creator) I am in constant awe at all of Your stupendous creation. It leaves me humbled and enormously appreciative of the love You so lavishly bless me with every day. In deep worship in the name of Your most awesome gift to me Jesus Christ I pray. Amen.

Wishing you a house full of sunshine, hearts full of cheer and love that grows deeper each day of the year. Welsh blessing

Neither Should We.

 But the Lord said to Samuel, “Do not look at his appearance or at the height of his stature, because I have rejected him. For the Lord sees not as man sees; for man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.” 1 Samuel 16:7 Holy Bible Amplified Version

In this situation Samuel saw big strong young men but Jehovah saw what was in their hearts. Samuel would never have chosen the runt of the litter (David).

Later on when a loud mouth (Goliath) challenged them and mocked their God (Jehovah) those big strong boys cowered for forty days.

When the runt of the litter (David) saw and heard it, he immediately took action , slew the big mouth and brought glory to Jehovah. He had no sword nor shield but an intense belief in Jehovahs providence.

All the while his wimpy (You know, the big strong brothers) tried to dissuade him and even mocked him.

That is, until David triumphed over the other big mouth ( Goliath ).

Read it for yourself in 1 Samuel 17: 1-50

Jehovah does not look at the candy bar wrapper (the outside or our bodies) and neither should we. Rather He looks at the inside (our spirits) and so should we. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Do not be pressured by the outward appearance of anyone whether it be physical beauty, material wealth or intellect but rather be drawn to those whose hearts are joined together with Jehovah.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah El Roi. You are the God who sees for blessing me with revealing what truly lies within the hearts of folks so as to not be deceived by the scammers but to see the beauty of the lovely ones. Please continue this blessing so as I may be rewarded with loving relationships and protected from vile ones. I sincerely request this in the name of He who saw what was in His disciples hearts even when everyone else just saw them as smelling ignorant fishermen Jesus Christ. Amen

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