Constantly Rejoicing in Hope.

 Constantly rejoicing in hope [because of our confidence in Christ], steadfast and patient in distress, devoted to prayer [continually seeking wisdom, guidance, and strength] Romans 12: 12 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Having hope in this instance refers to having confidence in Jehovah.

In every aspect of my life , no matter how difficult I have complete and total confidence in Him. Even, when I do not understand what is happening or why.

Depending upon the Holy Spirit during crisis’ blesses me with being as steady as a rock. Somethings it will teeter and totter back and forth but never lose its firm footing.

Depending upon the Holy Spirit during this time also expands my patience. Many times it is only by His grace alone that disaster is averted. Devotion to prayer has become such an integral part of my day that I feel totally uncomfortable all day if I do not begin it with morning prayers.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Immanuel (God is with us) for blessing me with Your Divine presence through out my life. I have complete and total confidence in Your guidance and care for this, Your cherished child. Thank you for blessing me with sharing loving conversations with me every day. I extol Thee in the name of He who is always with me Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

It is Not Futile.

 Your labor in the Lord is not futile nor wasted. 1 Corinthians 15:58 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Are you serving the Lord yet not seeing any results?

Take heart.

Seeds do not bear fruit over night but some grow quick while others take longer to bear fruit. Joseph son of Jehovah T

hey say that when we get to Heaven one of the greatest surprises will be the people around us that we served and then moved on. We do not believe we gave them a lasting affect but afterwards they blossomed into beautiful children of Jehovah.

I know, when I was a teacher there would be many months with no visible change in my children. I would call out to the Lord and ask Him why I was wasting my time here suffering these hardships for nothing. Then one day some of them would come up to me like children on Christmas morning and share with me that they had given their hearts and lives to Jesus. Because we were in a communist country and there was no Bibles readily available would ask me if I had one which I gladly obliged. I cannot tell you how my heart danced with ecstasy in pure joy.

Any time spent serving the Lord is never wasted time. Joseph son of Jehovah

You may not see the results in your lifetime but take heart. Some of the seeds you have sown will blossom into Heavenly children of Jehovah.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Emunah (God is faithful) for being faithful to my request for the honour of planting the seeds of a Heavenly crop, even if I do not see the harvest during my lifetime. I exalt You in the name of the greatest sower Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

We All Fall Down.

  For a righteous man falls seven times, and rises again Proverbs 24:16 Holy Bible Amplified Version

I do not care how long you have been a member of the Family of Jehovah, I do not care how strong your trust in Jehovah is we all fall down.

That is when the wicked one will come and mock you and tell you Jehovah is angry with you and you are not fit to be a member of His divine family. Do not believe him.

When we sincerely repent ( which means we admit what we did, admit it was wrong, apologize for it and stop doing it ) then we are forgiven.

I think an important note about repentance is for parents to set the example and repent to their young children ( and old ones of course) when we mess up. It teaches them integrity which will carry them through life and they will respect you for it.

This process is carried through out our life here on this planet until Jehovah takes us to our Heavenly home.

We will stumble and crawl our way to Heaven, not strut Joseph son of Jehovah

Do not be arrogant and foolishly believe yourself above this because that is when you are easy prey for satan.

Therefore let the one who thinks he stands firm [immune to temptation, being overconfident and self-righteous], take care that he does not fall [into sin and condemnation]. 1 Corinthians 10:12 Holy Bible Amplified Version

I know in my early walk with Christ there were times when I was absurd and believed I was strong and oh how hard was the fall and how deep them shame. Thankfully there was repentance on my behalf.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Hoshe’ah – ( The Lord Saves ) for graciously saving me and lifting me out of the dung pit we all fall into on occasion in our walk to our Heavenly home. I praise You in the name of He who lifted Peter out of the waves that were enveloping Him Jesus Christ. Amen

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

He is Always There.

 Your way [of escape for Your people] was through the sea, And Your paths through the great waters, And Your footprints were not traceable. Psalm 77:19 Holy Bible Amplified Version

There have been many times during my trials and tribulation, sorrows and snares in life that I cried out unto Jehovah to come and rescue me but believed He had deserted me. In reflection it was revealed that He is always there.

Do you think it is just a coincidence that that man or woman came into your life at just the right moment when you needed help but there was none forth coming?

When it seems as of you are walking through the desert with no job prospect do you think it is coincidence that that employment offer came along?

For me many times it was tiny ads in the newspaper that jumped out at me and would not let go until I took action on them. It always resulted in amazing accomplishments in my life. It helped me find employment, it helped me find good Christian councilors, it guided me to schools that Jehovah wanted me to attend to learn a skill that would be used in service unto Him later on. This is just but one example of Him being there without me even knowing it at the time.

There is no such thing as coincidence in the Christian walk. Joseph son of Jehovah

So, no matter what ordeal you are experiencing now and it seems as if Jehovah has deserted you take comfort child of Jehovah He is always there.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Immanuel (God is with us) for the blessing of always being with me through the numerous trials and tribulations, sorrows and snare, victories and love You graciously bless me with each and every day. I thank you in the name of He who walked amongst us Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

The Lord Will Not Allow

 The Lord will not allow the righteous to hunger [God will meet all his needs], But He will reject and cast away the craving of the wicked. Proverbs 10:3The Holy Bible Amplified Version

The righteous are those that live by Jehovahs commands not the politically correct liberals so prevalent in todays society in the west. His blessing are to always meet our daily physical needs. We will always have a place to lay our heads ( although it will not be a mansion it will be comfortable. He will always supply food for our bellies ( although it will not be steak or lobster it will be nourishing and delicious ). He will always supply us with clothes on our backs ( although it will not be the latest trends it will serve its needs and look nice ). And of course, He will multiply our spiritual needs bountifully and bless us with abundant Divine love, joy and peace ( which those of the world severely lack ).

The Lord always supplies for for His children because He loves us. Joseph son of Jehovah

The wicked may seem to prosper in their evil ways but the Lords hammer of justice will come crashing down upon them and all their nefarious deeds shall be called into His Divine court of justice and their punishment shall be severe. They shall lose everything.

The ways of the wicked are hated by Jehovah and they will lose everything including their souls to eternal damnation. Joseph son of Jehovah

I have seen it work both ways and I choose to live according to Jehovahs way.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireh (God is our Provider) for always providing for my daily spiritual and physical needs as only a loving Father like You can. Thank you Jehovah Hashopet (The Lord is the supreme Judge) for fulfilling Your promise to deliver Divine justice to the wicked. I exalt You in the name of the Supreme Judge Jesus and provider Christ. Amen.

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

Your Ears Will Hear.

Your ears will hear a word behind you, “This is the way, walk in it,” whenever you turn to the right or to the left. Isaiah 30:21 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Have you ever experienced a voice telling you not to go a certain route to school or work?

I have.

When I listened and obeyed certain disaster was avoided. When the warning was ignored I paid the price.

Have you ever heard a voice warning you about a deal or about someone you just met?

I have.

When I listened and obeyed certain disaster was avoided. When the warning was ignored I paid the price.

Now of course there will be times the devil uses this tactic to trick you.

So how are you to avoid this snare?

For me I take it to the Lord in prayer and inform His that I am calling on Him to protect me from the wicked ones wiles and if the feeling is still strong obedience is followed. If the feeling goes away I know it is the trickster.

Another tactic is to know your Bible and refer to it when the voice comes.

There truly is nothing new under the sun, including the devils tactics. Another tactic is to contemplate why I will or will not do this. Am I doing this for selfish reasons, if so it is not from Christ but from Satan.

‘I value all things only by the price they will bring in eternity ‘” John Wesley

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Kal El (voice of God) for blessing me with Your comforting, strengthening, guiding and healing wise words to encourage me and direct me upon Your most Holy path. I praise You in the name of He who followed Your path all the way to Calvary Jesus Christ. Amen

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

This Does Not Make Sense.

 Into Your hand I commit my spirit; You have redeemed me, O Lord, the God of truth and faithfulness. Psalm 31:5 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

This does not make sense.

These are the words spoken by every Christian. I can not count the number of times my Beloved ask me to do something that made no sense.

There were the ones He asked me to go up against were more powerful than me and had all the cards stacked in their favour. Except for the winning card of course, Jehovah had that card. Yes I was terrified but obedient. When the time came for the showdown Jehovah blessed me with courage and wisdom that brought the haughty crashing down.

The first few times that happened I was in shock and awe. The more frequent it happens the stronger my faith came in Jehovah the warrior being by my side.

There were many times when I felt my Beloved asking me to make huge changes in my life that were way out of my comfort zone. Yes, I was terrified but obedient. In the end I praise Him every day for that blessing because it made me grow in trust in Him and changed me so much for the better.

Sometimes when we are called to obey, the fear does not subside and we are expected to move against the fear. One must choose to do it afraid.” Elisabeth Elliot

Yes there are many times Jehovah will ask you to do things that make no sense to you but make perfect sense to Him. Obey and watch and experience the amazing things that will happen in your life when you are obedient.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Kal El (voice of God) for blessing me with Your voice gently speaking to me in my daily life and for blessing me with increased trust in You when You ask me to do that which I do not understand. I extol Thee in the name of He who trusted You all the way to the cross Jesus Christ. Amen

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