Yield and Submit.

WE MUST LET GO

 “Now yield and submit yourself to Him [agree with God and be conformed to His will] and be at peace; In this way [you will prosper and great] good will come to you. Job 22:21 Holy Bible Amplified Version

It takes the two. It takes the two parts in this verse before you are blessed.

Number one is to stop.

Stop being independent and stubborn. Jehovah cannot and will not ever attempt to help someone who refuses help. We must yield our will and wants and submit unto Him.

The next part is just as difficult.

To submit ourselves unto Jehovah means we are to give Him total control over our lives like a horse submits to the reins of its rider.

Once these two difficult tasks are completed then come the blessing. The blessing may be a physical blessing but there is always a spiritual blessing. The spiritual blessing of course is that there is a lot less stress in your life because you trust Jehovah has control of your life. The same can be said for worry. Instead your life is filled with peace, contentment and a knowledge of security knowing we have a superior being directing and helping us live a Divine life.

Leaving it in Jehovahs hands is the better choice. He knows what He is doing while we only think we know what we are doing. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Hamelech ( Jesus my Lord King ) for blessing me with the privilege of being a humble servant of the most noble King. Please bless me to always have a submissive heart unto Your will in every aspect of my life. I give thanks for this blessing and pray for this blessing in Your majestic name. Amen.

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

The Best Cheerleader.

gods-word

God who gives endurance and who supplies encouragement. Romans 15:5 Holy Bible Amplified Version

In many group sports they have cheerleaders. Their purpose is to encourage the team, especially when they are down in the score.

The best cheerleader for life of course is The Holy Spirit.

He provides us with physical, mental and spiritual endurance for the race Jehovah has chosen for us to run. He has various methods to accomplish this from the Holy Bible , to preachers to fellow brothers and sisters in Christ.

It is when we are at our lowest that we appreciate the most Jehovahs helping hand. Joseph- Anthony: Green

The same can be said for encouragement.

I cannot count the number of times I was ready to quit and then someone came and blessed me with encouraging words and help to see me through the tough times. I cannot count the number of times when a preacher sounded as if he was speaking directly to me from Jehovah that it lifted me up and strengthen me to carry on with zest. This is repeated through music as well as just spending quiet time with Him.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Ezer (The LORD our Helper) for blessing me with the many wonderful ways You have encouraged me when I was ready to give up. Thank you for helping me regain my strength to carry on Your Holy path You have chosen for me to travel down. I exalt You in the name of He who encouraged His disciples Jesus Christ. Amen

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

You are Precious in My Sight

gods-love

  “Because you are precious in My sight, You are honored and I love you. Isaiah 43:4 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Earthly lovers such as your parents or husband or wife, or siblings or friends will always let you down. Welcome to life.

But there is one with whom you are always love , cherished and adored. His name is Jehovah. He loved you so much He allowed His most cherished Son to die a slow agonizing humiliating death on a cross for you.

Of course if you desert Him , He will desert you. Being loved by Him does not permit you license to abuse Him by continually , willingly living a sinful life.

There has been so many occasions when I was communing with Him that He graciously favoured me with but a minute flalvour of His awesome love. Every molecule in my body was electrified and my heart could not stop shouting : “ I love You my Beloved , I love You. “

There is no sex , drugs or other material fleshly desires that can even begin to compare with this incredible experience.

Then , there are other times when it is sweet , gentle and reassuring that fills me with peace , comfort , love and joy. He truly is an awesome God.

It is amazing to know that one such as the Almighty loves a sinner such as me. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: I exalt You Jehovah Heseh (God is love) my cherished Beloved for the most treasured blessing in my existence , that of relishing an amazing loving relationship with You. I praise You for this cherished gift in the name of my Beloved Saviour whose blood made it all possible Jesus Christ. Amen

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

He Will Save You.

HAVE COURAGE

 Say to those with an anxious and panic-stricken heart, “Be strong, fear not! He will save you.” Isaiah 35:4 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Anxious is described as feeling or showing uncomfortable feelings of uncertainty.

We have all experienced anxiousness in our lives.

The difference between Christians and those of the world is that they have no where to turn to to provide them with concrete assurances that those they go to for help are in control and to fill them with peace.

We as Christians have the confidence in Jehovah who controls everything.

When we are obedient unto His guidance He will sooth out fears, comfort us and guide us to the best path to take out of the dark forest of uncertainty that envelopes us in whatever the circumstance is that is causing us apprehension.

Panic is defined as the emotion experienced in the presence or threat of danger.

Again those who are of the world panic when disaster is looming or is striking them. Those of us who belong unto Christ have His assurance that He will either walk through the fire with us like He did with  Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego.

He answered, “Look! I see four men untied, walking around in the midst of the fire, and they are not hurt! And the appearance of the fourth is like a son of the gods!”  Then Nebuchadnezzar approached the door of the blazing furnace and said, “Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego, servants of the Most High God, come out [of there]! Come here!” Then Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego came out of the midst of the fire. The satraps, the prefects, the governors and the king’s counselors gathered around them and saw that in regard to these men the fire had no effect on their bodies — their hair was not singed, their clothes were not scorched or damaged, even the smell of smoke was not on them Daniel 3:25-27 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Or , He will deliver us from the storm like He did His disciples.

But as they were sailing, He fell asleep. And a fierce gale of wind swept down [ as if through a wind tunnel ] on the lake, and they began to be swamped, and were in great danger. 24 They came to Jesus and woke Him, saying, “Master, Master, we are about to die!” He got up and rebuked the wind and the raging, violent waves, and they ceased, and it became calm [a perfect peacefulness]. Luke 8:23-25 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Those were real events Christian and are available unto You Jehovahs cherished child when you , in faith , call out unto Him.

I know , I have been through many furnaces and raging storms with Him in our walk towards the Heavenly home He has prepared for me.

“Knowing that I am not the one in control gives great encouragement. Knowing the One who is in control is everything.” — Alexander Michael

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-‘Immeku (The Lord Is With You) for always being there with me through my numerous trials and tribulations , sorrows and snares . Through all my pain and hardships . I could not have made it without Your comforting , reassuring and strengthening presence. I exalt You in the name of He who calmed the stroms of His disciples storms Jesus Christ . Amen

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

Cheers Him Up.

helping-others

 “An anxious heart weighs a man down, but a kind word cheers him up. “ Proverbs 12:25 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Anxiousness is described as feeling or showing uncomfortable feelings of uncertainty .

We have all encountered those around us that are suffering. How many have reached out and touched them with healing kindness ?

How can we help them ?

The best thing to do is to show you care by listening to their problems ( Jehovah takes the time to listen to our problems should we not emulate Him by doing the same for those that are suffering around us ? ) .

We are not just talking about the homeless .

We are talking about those that are suffering a disease . Yes , for many , going into a hospital is an uncomfortable experience but how comfortable do you think it is for them. Why not go in and reminisce with them about the good ol days . Why not go in with some photo’s of happy times . Speaking from experience you will be amazed at the amount of good you accomplish.

We are talking about those who are having difficulty in their studies or at work. Those of us who are older can relate and provide encouraging words to strengthen , guide them and encourage them. What about those that are experiencing relationship problems like with marriage or children? Again , those of us who are older have walked that walk and can provide positive affirmation to them by our experiences which will guide them , strengthen them and reassure them .

There are so many other opportunities available unto you Christian. All you have to do is be available , pray and be obedient unto Jehovahs guidance where your help is needed.

Prayer: Please Jehovah-Machsi – Lord my Refuge bless me with the opportunity to be a refuge unto those enduring trials and tribulations , sorrows and snares just as You are for me. Bless me with Your divine wisdom , grace , meekness and humbleness to help them as You have aboundingly done for me . I humbly request this in the name of He who was a refuge to the poor , the sick and the weak when He walked amongst us Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Who Has the Greatest Authority?

I TRUST GOD


 I sought the Lord [on the authority of His word], and He answered me. Psalm 34:4 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Who has the greatest authority ?

When you need answers to lifes problems who do you think has the greatest authority ( wisdom ) : Jehovah or a psychiatrist ? Jehovah is all wise while the psychiatrist is based upon human wisdom which is faulty. Therefore, which one do you think is the best choice to go to when you have problems ( now Jehovah may guide you to Bible centred therapists and or help groups.

When you need financial advice who do you believe has the greatest authority ( wisdom ) Jehovah who is concerned about your welfare or a financial advisor who is concerned about his commission and the financial institutional profits he works for ? Now Jehovah may guide you to Bible centred financial advisors.

Therefore when you encounter any and all problems in life should you not seek out the greatest authority ( wisdom ) and of course that is Jehovah hands down every time. When you ask , you must ask in faith and be prepared to obey His guidance or else why waste your time and His ?

You can see God from anywhere if your mind is set to love and obey Him. –A.W. Tozer

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Rabbi (God our Teacher) for Your Divine intercession with Your ultimate wisdom , strength and providence to bring resolution to all my problems. I exalt You in the name of He who taught His disciples amazingly Jesus Christ . Amen

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

State of Well-Being and Contentment.

HOPE IN THE LORD

 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

In this context I believe joy can be expressed as a feeling or state of well-being and contentment.

Because we take refuge in Jehovahs strong yet gentle loving arms when trials and tribulations, sorrows and snares occur our mental and spiritual being experience a overwhelming sensation of well being and contentment which is permeated by the Holy Spirit.

When we place our total trust in Jehovah He blesses us with inner peace and contentment. We cannot but shout and sing in joyous exaltation for such an amazing blessing.

Prayer: I praise you Jehovah- Machsi – Lord my Refuge for blessing me with Your favour to take refuge in Your strong, loving gentle arms during our trials and tribulations, sorrows and snares. I delight in singing songs of praise, love and adoration towards You. I thank you for the times when the Heavenly chorus of angels join in. I exalt You in the name of He whose nail scarred hands made this benediction possible Jesus Christ. Amen

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