His Name is Jehovah.

 “When my soul was fainting within me, I remembered the Lord, And my prayer came to You, Into Your holy temple. Jonah 2:7 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

The older we get the more our soul faints with in, except, for those of us who belong to Christ.

You know why our soul does not grow weak?

Because we have the greatest strengthener there can ever be. His name is Jehovah.

I cannot count the number of times my finances were exhausted and I had no job because of a recession. Yes money was put away for this inevitability but it was put into investments that a naive one like me did not realize that the investment firm would charge exorbitant charges for cashing in the investment and the blood sucker government would take a huge chunk as well leaving me with a pittance to hold me over. That is what happens when you trust in corporations in my opinion, they are out to make money off of you and do not want to pay out. It took many years to walk away from these scoundrels and depend upon the best investment councilor there is. His name is Jehovah. Since listening to His wise advice and obeying His guidance there has never been a shortage of fiances ( mind you part of that is learning to live frugally and not to be a part of the foolish materialistic world).

In my younger days I used to read a lot of self help books to improve myself. Some were good and are still referenced to today ( especially because they confirm what the Bible says) but most were complete rubbish (especially the ones written by the “ new agers” ).

Self help is no where near as effective as Jehovahs help. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Today I depend upon the wisest Guidance Councilor there is.

His name is Jehovah.

Through His guidance book ( the Holy Bible), good Christian councilors and preachers He has remolded me in so many incredible ways so that there is no semblance of the old creature but only a new and much improved child of His.

The same is said in dealing with interpersonal relationships. Yes there are still times when my soul becomes weak within me but when those times come ( and they always do ) the proper course of action is taken and the soul is strengthened. The proper course of course is taking it to my loving, wise Councilor.

His name is Jehovah.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Chatsahi (The Lord is my Strength) for blessing me with Your ultimate strength in my times of weaknesses. I would have never made it without You my love. I extol Thee in the name of my strong Savior Jesus Christ. Amen

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

In Your Midst.

                         

“The Lord your God is in your midst, A Warrior who saves. He will rejoice over you with joy; He will be quiet in His love [making no mention of your past sins], He will rejoice over you with shouts of joy. Zephaniah 3:17 Holy Bible Amplified Version.

Are you battling an addiction ( we all have them, it is part of our fallen lives ) ?

Jesus is our Warrior King. Surrender it completely to Him and He will conquer it with you ( notice I said with you, do not believe that when you place anything at Christs feet He will do all the work. Sometimes He will but most times it is team work between you and Him ).

Is there conflict in your life either personal or at work or school?

Surrender it to our Warrior King and the two of you will conquer the conflict together ( That does not mean Jesus will cause the other sides defeat but rather He will guide you to the proper resolution, which may mean you change your attitude and disposition not the other way around ).

Have you just had a success at something like getting that job or a successful operation or any other achievement in life?

Jesus is there rejoicing with you ( be polite and thank Him for blessing you with success ).

Are you beating yourself up over stumbling , welcome to life.

Sincerely repent and believe He has forgiven you.

We will stumble and crawl our way to Heaven, not strut Joseph- Anthony: Green

Unlike Santa Claus who is a marketing ploy to con you into departing with your money foolishly, Jesus Christ is real and He walks with you every day through your trial and tribulations, sorrows and snares, joys, and triumphs. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Question is, are you walking with Him?

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Shammah ( The Lord is Present ) for always being present in my daily walk. Thank you for walking with me through the difficult times and for being there to share the joy of our triumphs. I extol Thee in the name of He who walks with me and talks with me Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

The Very Best and Highest Attainment.

do-not-allow-them-to-control-you

 “Be still and know (recognize, understand) that I am God. I will be exalted among the nations! I will be exalted in the earth.” Psalm 46:10 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

There have been numerous times when I behaved with integrity and was called up on the carpet for it on employment contracts. I was afraid and did not know what to say so did the only option available to me:I got down on my knees and prayed. When the show down occurred many in the crowd laughed foolishly believing that I was going to suffer greatly for my integrity. I opened my mouth and the Holy Spirit spoke through me. The crowd was silent and most times the judge ruled in my favor. The wicked ones were the losers in the encounter no matter how many of them there were, who their connections were or how much money or power they thought they had.

There have been times of disaster when I knew not what to say nor the actions to take. I sincerely intensely prayed and the Holy Spirit guided my words and actions that relieved the suffering and steered those around me away from the disaster. Afterwards I wondered where that wisdom and strength came form and praised Jehovah for it upon reflection.

“The very best and highest attainment in this life is to remain still and let God act and speak in you.”  Meister Eckhart

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Kal El (voice of God) for speaking through me when brought before the authorities. Thank you for blessing me with encouraging, healing and strengthening words to share with those enduring disasters. I extol Thee in the name of He whose words shamed the wicked ones and healed the sick , hurt and infirm ones Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

The More We Become Like Him.

choices

 Therefore become imitators of God [copy Him and follow His example], as well beloved children [imitate their father]. Ephesians 5:1 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Whether you like it or not when you become an adult your personality and disposition always imitates one of your parents. Being older now I can see this through four generations.

Now the more time we spend with someone the more we become like them ( just ask any couple that has been married for thirty years or more ) so it only stands to reason that the more time we spend with Christ the more we become like Him.

Now just like with any family there are rules of conduct and behaviour.

So too it is with Jesus’ family. Many of these rules will be foreign to us and down right unattainable. That is when we are blessed with the Divine assistance of the Holy Spirit who will mentor us through the muddy waters and discipline us when we go astray. The more we attain this the more we resemble Christ.

“The steady discipline of intimate friendship with Jesus results in men becoming like Him.” — H. E. Fosdick

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Abba (God our Father) for all the help you have made in encouraging, guiding and moulding this child of Yours to emulate His cherished Heavenly Beloved every day in every way. I exalt You in the name of my big brother whom I idolize and desire to emulate Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Prayer Helps Us to Respond.

when-i-pray

 When I am afraid,I will put my trust and faith in You. In God, whose word I praise;In God I have put my trust; I shall not fear. Psalms 56: 3-4 Holy Bible Amplified Version

We all encounter trials and tribulations, sorrows and snares.

I have experienced such intense tribulation it was difficult sleeping, eating and functioning in society. Nothing helped me, not words from friends or councilors, nor self help books. It was only when I got down on my knees and in deep anguish cried out to Jehovah that He blessed me with an all encompassing love which strengthened me and stilled my heart with peace. The fear slowly ebbed away like darkness with the rising sun. There was no fear just peace and assurance of Jehovahs firm but gentle hand upon my life. I trusted Him and had faith in Him. He did not let me down, He never does. He filled me with confidence and an eagerness to attack and destroy the troubles. This process has been repeated every time trial and tribulation, sorrow and snares come my way.

When trouble comes my way I get down on my knees and pray. Joseph- Anthony; Green

Christian, no matter what you are enduring now get down on your knees and pray with all your heart. Jehovah loves you, He cares about you and longs to comfort you, fill you with peace, love, strength and confidence. But, first, you must ask for His divine intervention and then be obedient unto His counsel if you are to experience assured victory.

Prayer helps us to respond to misfortune with courage, to react with confidence and to rebound with enthusiasm. –William Arthur Ward

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Immanuel (God is with us) that You are always there, that You always care, that You bless me with strength, wisdom, peace, assurance and love whenever trouble great and small come crushing down upon me. I exalt The in the name of He who calmed the violent storm for His loved disciples Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Do Not Fall for Their Scams.

the-devious-reward

 You are of your father the devil, and it is your will to practice the desires [which are characteristic]of your father. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth because there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks what it natural to him, for he is a liar and the father of lies and half-truths. John 8:44 Holy Bible Amplified Version

The longer we live the more we will encounter the wicked snakes in the grass, they are manipulators. They will try to enslave you with tactics like: “ If you love me you will ___ ” or “If you love me you will allow me to ___________ “ or If you are my friends you will ____ “ or “ If you want more hours or a pay raise you will_______” Do not fall for their trap. Do not fall for their scams.

Personally I turn the tables on them and ask them : “ If you love me you will _____” and the you will entails them doing something for me first or respecting my opinion.

If they ask if I do not trust them my reply is that “ Trust is earned not given. What have you done to earn my trust? “

It shuts them up.

When they make exorbitant promises that I know is impossible for them to keep if I do something for them first my reply is that seeing as how they came to me first I will allow them the privilege of exhibiting to everyone their honesty and honour in fulfilling their promise first. They hate me for that but it causes a lot less grief in my life. They are the children of Satan and we are to avoid them at all possible costs.

“Satan promises the best, but pays with the worst; he promises honor, and pays with disgrace; he promises pleasure, and pays with pain; he promises profit, and pays with loss, he promises life, and pays with death. But God pays as he promises; all his payments are made in pure gold.” — Thomas Brooks

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Mephalti (The Lord my Deliverer) for blessing me with the wisdom, craftiness, meekness and humbleness to defeat the wicked enemy when they attempt to enslave me with their evil schemes. I exalt Thee in the name of He whose wisdom defeated satan in the wilderness Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

You Are the Light.

gods-story-for-you

  “You are the light of [Christ to] the world. Matthew 5: 14 Holy Bible Amplified Version

This can be looked at as awesome ( awesome means to be in awe of and awe means an emotion variously combining dread, and wonder that is inspired by authority ) as young folk like to throw around today with out knowing what it means. It is also a very weighty matter.

Think of it, we are Christs ambassadors to the world.

When others look at you what kind of Jesus do you think they see?

For me, I am ashamed of they type of Jesus I present to the world at times. That is why it is of paramount importance to always pray every day for the blessing of the Holy Spirit to guide us and help us be the type of ambassadors that would nurture a deep desire for others to immigrate into Christs kingdom and leave their dark world behind. That is truly a task too monumental for us to accomplish on our own.

If we are to be the light of the world we need the fire of the Holy Spirit within us. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-‘Ori (the Lord is my Light) for blessing me with Your Divine light which shines brilliantly in this dark world so that I may have the honour of guiding those in the dark world unto Your Heavenly light. I exalt You in the name of the light of the world Jesus Christ. Amen

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