I Called Out Unto

In my distress I prayed to the Lord,and the Lord answered me and set me free. Psalms 118:5 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

There has been so many times in my dedicated service unto our Heavenly King where the stress was so bad it felt like I was going to literally explode. On my knees with rivers of tears rushing down my exhausted cheeks and shaking hands lifted to the Heavens I called out unto our Beloved Poppa in Heaven to release me from this pain, anguish, frustration, and exhaustion.

Most times He refused.

Instead He answered me with the same phrase that washes all the distress and exhaustion from my body and spirit and left me completely enveloped in His Divine peace and love. “My grace is all you need. My power works best in weakness.”  2 Corinthians 12:9 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Divine grace is described as : the free and unmerited favoror the recieving of goodness from God The Free Dictionary

Jehovah may not free you from your circumstance but He will walk with you through them and you will be blessed with loving and respecting Him ever more.

When Jehovah puts you in the furnace of affliction, He is right in there with you. Joseph a son of Jehovah.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-‘Immeku (The Lord Is With You Judges 6:12 ) for walking with me through all my trials and tribulations, sorrows and snares. We have walked this road so many times before that I have complete and total confidence in Your presence whenever that painful road must be travelled again. I exalt You in the name of He who has experianced all that I have and so much more when He walked amongst us, Jesus Christ.Amen.

“We are Christians and strangers on this earth. Let none of us be frightened; our native land is not this world.” —St. Augustine of Hippo

Is the Most Priceless Treasure.

Dear Father,

Your love is the most priceless treasure.

You have mysteriously and wonderfully created me. You have ordained all the days of my life and written them in Your book before I was even born. All your thoughts towards me are precious.

I praise You because I am Your handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, You have prepared in advance for me to do.

I come before You today to humble myself before You, submitting to Your will for my life. Because of You, Father, surely goodness and mercy follow me all the days of my life.

I am devoted to living out Your will on earth, to be more concerned with storing up treasures in Heaven than on earth.

Lead me, Lord, in the way I should go. Direct my steps and fulfill Your plans for my life. Thank you for guiding upon Your path for me to follow to Your Heavenly home You have graciously prepared for me.

In Jesus name I pray. 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

Thank You for Your.

 Thank you my Beloved Jehovah Heseh (God is love 1 John 4:16) for being such a loving and gracious Father to this child of Yours.

Thank you that when I accept Your Son as my Savior and dedicate my life to serving Him, You wash away all my sins like a waterfall gently cascading over me on a hot day.

Thank you that it is impossible to ever be blessed with a perfect love like the one You offer me. Thank you for Your amazing perfect love.

Thank you that You are always there with me through thick and thin. Thank you that nothing can ever separate me from Your awesome love. Thank you for the new life You have blessed me with.

Because I am in Christ [that is, grafted in, joined to Him by faith in Him as Savior], I am a new creature [reborn and renewed by the Holy Spirit]; the old things [the previous moral and spiritual condition] have passed away. Behold, new things have come [because spiritual awakening brings a new life]. 2 Corinthians 5:17 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Thank You in the name of Your greatest gift to me, Jesus Christ. Amen.

Come and See

 Come and see what our God has done, what awesome miracles he performs for people! Psalm 66:5 Holy Bible, New Living Translation

Many of us who dedicate our lives to serving our Heavenly King are living hand to mouth. We are living comfortably but far from extravagantly. By the worlds standards we have no pension fund and will be left in abject poverty upon retirement.

Do not believe this lie by satan to discourage you, good servant.

The Master of the Universe loves you and has promised to take care of His cherished friends, who are also His free will servants. He will provide for us in miraculous ways to prove to all He takes care of His own. The same cannot be said of those tumbling around in the darkness.

FULLFILLED DESIRES

Jesus has the best pension fund in the universe for His loyal servants. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah El Gemuwal (Jeremiah 51:56 The LORD GOD of Recompenses) for blessing me with Your guarantee that I shall be compensated seven times more than that which I have given to You in my dedication to You in my daily life and in my service unto You.                                  Thank you that these rewards shall be given both here in this world and so much more in the Heavenly home You have graciously prepared for those in Your service.                                                                      I exalt You in the name of He with whom I am honoured to serve in a life time of dedication,our majestic King 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

Prayer: Thank you oh my gracious and generous Jehovah Jireh ( God provides ) Philippians 4:19 for always supplying for this adoring child of Yours through out my life and for providing me with a magnificent home You have lovingly provided for me in Heaven. I thank you in the name of my beloved big brother I look forward to guiding through that home when I arrive there, Jesus Christ. Amen

GOD PROVIDES

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

Not Good Enoughs.

HE IS THE BOSS

Whatever you do [whatever your task may be], work from the soul [that is, put in your very best effort], as [something done] for the Lord and not for men Colossians 3:23 The Holy Bible, Amplified Version

Have you ever worked for the “not good enoughs”?

These are ungrateful folks that no matter how hard you try it is never good enough for them. I used to be a people pleaser. It was not that their praise was needed for my ego but that there was a genuine desire to make others happy. It was and still is devastating to try your best only to experience their gratitude by slowly slicing it apart as with a knife with their complaints on how it is not good enough.

Now, that I am a more mature Christian, I seek Jesus’ pleasure not mans. He does not make a big deal out of it but there is a gentle loving feeling in the heart when He softly whispers:” Well done My good and faithful servant.” That is more rewarding than anyone else could say or do.

Work for Christ nor man. He is much easier to work for and much more appreciative. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Hamelech ( Jesus my Lord King ) – Psalm 98:6 for blessing me with the honour of being Your obedient servant. I am filled with such wonderful joy when You esteem my dedication unto You in daily service to the King I adore. I thank you in Your majestic name. Amen

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

I Wanna Know so I can Do.

follow your ways

 Commit yourself to instruction; listen carefully to words of knowledge. Proverbs 23:12 Holy Bible, New Living Translation Version

 I wanna know so I can do as my Heavenly King desires. Because I love Jesus so much I have a deep desire to know what He wishes for me to do.

We need to daily commit to seeking out the best instruction for our lives.

And, of course, the best instruction manual is The Holy Bible.

There are other resources such as on line daily devotionals like Our Daily Bread. For those who prefer to listen rather than read a fantastic resource is https://www.sermonaudio.com/main.asp Both are great.

When we dedicate ourselves to asking for instructions for the coming day with commitment to obeying the instructions given, we will find that Jehovah guides us along on our day even though many times it does not feel as if He is there.

Then, there is the big picture in which Jehovah moulds our personality which takes decades. Being a little slow at catching on at times (we all are) it means there are occasions when the information must be digested a little at a time.

As well, there is a slow process for us to serve Jesus’ big purpose.

This may take years and involve many baby steps along the way.

I love to learn but sometimes it is difficult to put that knowledge into practice. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Rabbi (God our Teacher) for the distinction of being one of Your disciples. I love to sit and listen and learn from the Holy Spirit whom You have sent to instruct me in the proper manner in which to be a revered servant of Yours. I applaud You for this favour in Your holy name. Amen

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

We Would Not Believe It.

 For I know the plans and thoughts that I have for you,’ says the Lord, ‘plans for peace and well being and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope. Jeremiah 29:11 Holy Bible Amplified Version

I am glad Jehovah did not inform me of His long term plans for me because I would not have believed it. Many of them would have been terrifying to me because He walked with me through some pretty difficult and dangerous times. They had to happen to make me grow in faith, reverence, love and respect for Him.

As well the plans He had for me to be in service unto Him were unimaginable to a quiet country boy like me.

“Sometimes God does not tell us His plan because we would not believe it anyway.” Carlton Pearson

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Rohi ( Jesus is our Divine Shepherd )for blessing me for with holding Your Divine plans for me because they would have been too terrifying and beyond my capability to understand them. Thank You for the incredible things You have accomplished in my life and through my life through those plans. I exalt You in Your awesome name. Amen.

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

Be Thankful

In every situation [no matter what the circumstances] be thankful and continually give thanks to God; for this is the will of God for you in Christ Jesus.1 Thessalonians 5:18 Holy Bible Amplified Version

I desired to make raised flower beds for my aged mother who can no longer bend over to work in her flower beds and she loves her flower beds and working in them. I wanted ten skids and my friend suggested he could get a truck and we could pick them up the next day, but because the truck he wanted to borrow was not available he phoned and informed me we could only get three.

There was disappointment and anger in my heart because we agreed upon ten.

After talking with Jehovah became I became grateful for what was given and for my friends help and waited for him to come pick me up the next day to get the skids.

The friend showed up with five skids in the back of his SUV the next afternoon. When we went to the place where the skids were supposed to be they were all gone. He drove to the place where he saw the skids on the side of the road during his morning walk and we got five more.

Because of that the raised garden could be made ( even though it was not as big as I wanted. I wanted to build a pyramid raised garden but the skids were too small).

As well there was enough skids to use as the base to make another bigger raised garden using a discarded dresser drawer. Another blessing was Jehovah giving me an idea on how to make more raised gardens as a border for our flower beds using materials around the house that I never thought of.

As a consequence there was not a need for so many skids.

When we desire something but Jehovah does not give us what we want but are to still be appreciative. Then Jehovah multiplies His blessings upon us.

A faithful (right-minded) man will abound with blessings. Proverbs 28:20 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Jireh (God is our Provider) for providing for me the material necessary to build a monument of love towards Your cherished daughter, my mother and for the brother who graciously helped me. I thank You in the name of He who was grateful for the blessings of the disciples You sent unto Him Jesus Christ. Amen.

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