Bless Me to Enable Me To

But to you who are willing to listen, I say, love your enemies! Do good to those who hate you. Bless those who curse you. Pray for those who hurt you. Luke 6:27-28 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Are you willing to?

It is our natural inclination to close our ears to words we do not wish to listen to.

Are you willing to suppress that and listen to The Holy Spirits voice as He convicts you?

It is our natural inclination to hate our enemies and make them suffer as much as we can.

Are you willing to love them?

That is not the mushy nonsense you see in movies or on TV.

It is an effort that can only be accomplished by surrendering to the power of The Holy Spirit. It does not mean that you condone nor tolerate abusive behaviour. If you love them you will help them to understand why they are abusive ( many times it is because of abuse they have suffered and have not been healed of ) and help them get counselling. If you love them you will not empower them by allowing this behaviour to continue but will allow them to suffer the consequences of their actions.

Purge yourself of toxic folks less their poison kills your love and you are rewarded with nothing but misery in return. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Are you willing to pray for Jehovah to open your eyes to the problem and to the solution ( including the fact that the problem may not be them but may be you ).

When others hate us it is natural to hate them back.

Are you willing to love your enemies by understanding why they hate you and seek reconciliation in the relationship. If they refuse are you willing to love them enough to behave in a respectful manner towards them. Are you willing to pray for Jehovah to open your eyes to the problem and to the solution ( including the fact that the problem may not be them but may be you ).

“The Bible tells us to love our neighbours, and also to love our enemies; probably because they are generally the same people.” — G. K. Chesterton Prayer:

Please Jehovah ELOHIM YAKOL (God, the Most Able 2 Corinthians 9:8 ) bless me to enable me to conduct myself towards difficult folks in the noble manner in which Your gracious son Jesus Christ did. I wish not just for peace in this relationship but to use this situation to glorify You and to bring the little lost sheep into Your Heavenly fold. Please bless me with the strength and healing of ostracizing myself from toxic folks until they accept that their behaviour is not loving nor acceptable.

It is in the name of He who exemplified Christian behaviour towards others, Jesus Christ, that I humbly beseech You. Amen

May you always be receptive to and obedient to The Holy Spirits guidance in all of your relationships. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Yet True Godliness with Contentment Is

Yet true godliness with contentment is itself great wealth 1 Timothy 6:6 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Godliness is conforming ones life to Jehovahs will.

Contentment is being satisfied and grateful for what you have.

Therefore, what is being said here is that spiritual wealth that can only come from Jehovah is the greatest wealth of all.

Abundance, or prosperity, is having all that you need to meet any circumstance, with enough left over to give wherever God might direct you.

The Lord will withhold no good thing from those who do what is right. Psalms 84:11

When we walk in harmony with the Holy Spirits guidance our gracious Heavenly Father supplies all of our daily needs. Thus, trusting Jehovah at His word that He will meet all of our needs ( not wants) we will not suffer the stress that the world is experiencing at this troublesome time.

If I want the Masters rewards I must be willing to obey His direction in my life.  Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireh ( God provides Philippians 4:19 ) for Your abundant grace that is showered upon me every day as I walk in obedience unto The Holy Spirits guidance.

I applaud You in the name of the greatest spiritual gift You have blessed me with, Jesus Christ. Amen.

May your heart be open and obedient unto The Holy Spirits guidance this day so your day will be filled with contentment. Joseph a son of Jehovah

He Instructed Me To

Do not say, “I’ll pay you back for this wrong!” Wait for the Lord, and he will avenge you.” Proverbs 20:22 The Holy Bible, The New International Version

I may get in trouble for saying this but in my experience it is true.

When someone does a woman wrong in their eyes they are very spiteful and will do anything they can to make your life pure living Hell. Therefore they need to take heed of this verse.

Before I was a mature Christian if someone crossed me look out. I was the most devious, cruel creature you had ever met when I got my pound of flesh.

Then, one day the Lord spoke to me and educated me that I was playing god when I met out the punishment for those who offended me. He instructed me to leave vengeance in His hands because He knows if the culprit did it intentionally or not.

There is nothing like getting someone back who did the offence unintentionally. Boy, there is a lot of egg on the face then and a innocent suffers which is even worse).

He knows the offender and so knows how to met out the appropriate punishment. I have seen His strong arm met out punishment and it brought out terror in my heart because I knew that could be me if when convicted by the Holy Spirit I refuse to repent.

Revenge is best left in Jehovahs hands. He knows how to deliver true justice. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah El Gemuwal ( Jeremiah 51:56 The LORD GOD of Recompenses ) for blessing me with burning off of the dross of having a revengeful heart.

Although it is difficult at times I know that true justice will be served in Your time and in Your way.

During this time of waiting for Your justice to be delivered please bless the offender to come to their senses and repent of their crime so they do not have to suffer because of it.

I gratefully thank You and humbly request this in the name of He who washes the filthiest sins away from the repentant heart, Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Prayer: Please Jehovah Mekaddishkem (Exodus 31:13 The LORD that Sanctifies You ) continue Your studious transformation of this rough piece of clay into the masterpiece You have created me to be.

Thank you for the incredible work You have done so far in this Divine transformation.

Please help me exorcist the the despicable ruinous traits that hamper our loving relationship, that prevent me form serving You ever better and that bring pain and suffering to my life.

I meekly request this in the name of He who transformed rough fishermen into world changing fishers of men, Jesus Christ. Amen

The Simple Yet Effective Way To

In peace [and with a tranquil heart] I will both lie down and sleep, For You alone, O Lord, make me dwell in safety and confident trust. Psalm 4:8 The Holy Bible, The Amplified Version

It is amazing that most folks suffer from insomnia.

Yeah, I used to be one of them.

Then, I was enlightened to the simple yet effective way to the best sleep I have ever had.

When suffering insomnia it is because I always have a problem. The problem is laid out at the feet of Jesus. Usually it is difficult to lay it completely at His feet because He gently lulls me to sleep with a warm blanket of love and assurance He will help solve the problem. There is safety and confidence in my most trusted best friend.

It works for me, why not give it a try?

For the best nights sleep, sleep in the gentle loving arms of Jesus. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah OLAM ZEROWA ( The Everlasting Arms Deut. 33:26) that I can take comfort in Your strong yet gentle arms as You softly lulls me to sleep with Your kind reassurance. I adore You in the name of my loving big brother Jesus Christ. Amen

May you be blessed with abundant joy in your heart filled with love and your life overflowing with laughter every day this year. Joseph a son of Jehovah May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love fill your heart today and every day. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Oh Jehovah Shalom

Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. Philippians 4:6 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Prayer: Oh Jehovah Shalom (The Lord blesses with Peace Isaiah 9:6, Rom 8:31-35 ) I thank you so much that I can always come to you with whatever is upsetting me. Every time You calm me down with Your gentle loving Divine peace and then softly speak to me and help relieve the stress I am experiencing.

Then You wisely explain the answer to all my questions and stressful situations. I am grateful that You have taught me to always come to You before I take any action.

I praise You in the name of the Prince of Peace Jesus Christ. Amen

Those who pray first, wait for the Lords answer and then be obedient unto His instruction have a lot less stress in their lives. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Please Jehovah Heseh

If you love me, keep my commands. John 14:15 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Here is the blessing formula: When we are obedient unto Jehovahs commands as an act of love towards Him we learn more about Him.

As we learn more about Him we love Him more.

As we love Him more we desire more to serve Him.

As we desire more to serve Him our prayer requests will be more in harmony with His will in our lives and not our selfish passions.

Because our petitions are in harmony with Jehovahs aspiration for us He will joyfully grant our petition.

How can I not love one who loves me so deeply as Jesus.  Joseph a son of Jehovah 

This formula works for me.

Why not give it a try?

To receive Jehovahs blessing you must understand the giver before you can expect gifts from Him. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Please Jehovah Heseh (God is love 1 John 4:16 ) bless me with a heart that beats more and more in tune with Your lovely heart every moment of every day. I humbly request this in the name of He who loved me so much He suffered on the cross for me Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Joyful are Those Who.

Joyful are those who obey his laws and search for him with all their hearts. Psalm 119:2 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Prayer: Please Jehovah El-Deah ( God of knowledge. Romans 11:33 ) bless me with more knowledge of You, Jesus and the Holy Spirit. Thank you for the devotionals you send me in the email and the quiet time we spend together reading them. And then, we spend the most precious time of the day, prayer time where I pour my heart out to you with joy, sorrow, pain and gratitude every morning and evening. I thank you in the name of He who I love to spend time with which makes it the most quality time of my day, Jesus Christ. Amen

May love be in your life, may hope be in your heart and may peace be in your every day walk with Christ. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Please Jehovah Emunah

Rejoice in our confident hope. Be patient in trouble, and keep on praying. Romans 12:12 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Please Jehovah Emunah (God is faithful 1 John 1:9, 2 Thessalonians 3:3 ) bless me to have faith in Your providence and to remain silent when trails and tribulations come (which they always will until we reach our Heavenly home ).

Please bless me to remember the previous times we have walked through the hard times so that it will bring joy to my heart knowing that You are walking with me through this one, even though I cannot see Your wise hand leading me through the dark valley, I know You are there. Help me to be patient and know that all things work in Your time and in Your way.

I humbly request this in the name of He who patiently waited until the right time to provide us salvation through His gift of His sacrifice for us, Jesus Christ. Amen

May you be blessed with strength to endure this difficult time and confidence that the Holy Spirit is there with you every step of the way. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Jehovah ELOHIM YAKOL

Dear brothers and sisters, honor those who are your leaders in the Lord’s work. They work hard among you and give you spiritual guidance. Show them great respect and wholehearted love because of their work. 1 Thessalonians 5:12-13 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Why not give this a try: Say thank you to the stock boys and girls as well as the cashiers at stores. They work hard for little money and receive little gratitude for their hard work.

Give your doctor and thank you card and a home made gift in appreciation for all their hard work. Think about it, they put in long hours and listen to nothing but complaining all day long. That is depressing.

Why not shake a cops hand and thank them for their difficult job. They get crapped on for doing their job and crapped on for not intervening when they cannot.

How about adding pastors, choirs masters, teachers to the list. And you know what?

In doing so, you will find you have a much happier life and mentality.

A grateful life is a joyous life. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Oh, and do not forget to say thank you to our Heavenly Poppa when He blesses you. As well, begin and end your day with saying thank you to Him for all the blessing great and small and see how good of a nights sleep you get.

Always be joyful. Never stop praying. Be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you who belong to Christ Jesus. 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Prayer: Please Jehovah ELOHIM YAKOL (God, the Most Able 2 Corinthians 9:8 ) enable my heart to be gracious and grateful to all those I encounter this day so as to emulate You and be an encourager. I humbly ask this in the name of the greatest encourager of all, Jesus Christ. Amen

The gift of love, the gift of joy, the gift of peace, these are the greatest gifts that can be given. They are given in abundance to all those in Christs family by our Heavenly loving  Father to be shared with others.

May you be blessed with plentiful opportunities to share these with those around you today. Joseph a son of Jehovah
