There is Neither Coincidence Nor Accidents In

follow your ways

 

 My times are in Your hands Psalm 31:15 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

There is neither coincidence nor accidents in our Christian lives. Everything is either by the hand of Jehovah or by His allowance.

It was not Jehovahs hand that caused Jobs sufferings but by His allowance. It was done to teach Job and important lesson (not to depend upon His own righteousness to be in favour of Jehovah).

The plagues upon Egypt were not coincidence or a freak act of nature but by the hand of Jehovah. They were to exhibit His power to both the Egyptians and the Israelites.

Jesus’ healing of the lepers was neither coincidence or a freak act of nature but by the hand of Jehovah. The military leader of the conquering army that was destroying Israel washing himself in the Jordan River to cleanse his leprosy was was neither coincidence or a freak act of nature but by the hand of Jehovah.

These are real events and they continue on to this day both in your life as well as mine. To write unexplained events in our lives as accidents or coincidence is an insult to Jehovah. The world may believe this lie but Christians know better.

“There are no accidents in the life of the Christian.” — Rowland Bingham

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ‘Immeku (The Lord Is With You) for being with me to share Your dumb founding ways to my life which although they are confusing at the time reveal Your unmatched wisdom. I praise You in the name of He who left the scribes and pharisee’s scratching their heads with His unorthodox ways Jesus Christ. Amen

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

We Are On a Journey.

LEADS TO HEAVEN

 Be dressed and ready for active service.” Luke 12:35 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

In the Christian life we are on a journey. Yes it is nice to think about what Heaven will be like but we need to stayed focused on where we are in the present and where Jehovah is leading us on our journey towards Heavens Gate.

We are useless to Christ if we spend our Christian life day dreaming about Heaven instead of concentrating on being Christs servant on the journey there. Joseph a servant of Christ.

On this journey many times we do not have a road map of where Christ is sending us our what our service entails. It may be a journey of being a godly husband or wife, a godly parent. It may be on a journey of your vocation as say a nurse or a waitress at a quaint restaurant.

During the course of this journey there will be many dangers, pitfalls, loneliness, and exhaustion. It is at these times we shall draw ever closer unto our Heavenly Beloved and He shall draw the closest to us. In His loving grace we shall experience His amazing love, wisdom, comfort, encouragement and power. This shall instill in us a wonder and awe of His majesty. The result of this is an ever deeper desire to trust Him on our journey to Heavens gate and desire to be a loyal bond servant ( a bond servant is one who serves out of free will) unto Him.

“It is good to have an end to journey toward; but it is the journey that matters, in the end.” — Ursula LeGuin

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Immanuel (God is with us) for blessing me with walking with me throughout this adventure called life. It is in following You that we have traveled amazing paths and accomplished incredible feats together. I praise You in the name of He who is the light that I follow of the trail of life Jesus Christ. Amen

May your house be filled with joy in the morning and sweet dreams at night. May it be a home where love has come to live. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Do you see the difference ?

JESUS TALKS WITH ME

 The [presence of the] Lord was going before them by day in a pillar (column) of cloud to lead them along the way, and in a pillar of fire by night to give them light, so that they could travel by day and by night. Exodus 13:21 The Holy Bible Amplified Version There appeared to them tongues resembling fire, which were being distributed [among them], and they rested on each one of them [as each person received the Holy Spirit]. Acts 2:3 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Do you see the difference between the old and the new?

In the Old Testament Jehovah lead them by a light at night but He lead as a group

. In the New Testament Jehovah sends the Holy Spirit to the individual.

Now we do not have tongues of fire come upon us when we accept Christ as our Saviour and dedicate our lives to Him as our Divine King but, we do have the Holy Spirit dwell with in us. He speaks to us individually. Of course He uses other methods such as preaching and signs and wonders but it is through Him that He blesses us with insight into how this concerns our walk with Christ.

Jehovah knows you so He knows how to reveal Himself to You in a way in which you will understand. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Shammah ( The Lord is Present) for blessing me with the privilege of having The Holy Spirit dwell with in me. He is the ever present comforter, encourager, teacher, guidance councillor and strengthener. With out Him it would have been impossible for You to accomplish all the amazing feats You have and continue to do in my life and through my life. I exalt You in the name of He with whom look forward to dwelling with in Heaven, Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

There is No Other

JEHOVAHS CARE

 Most certainly God is with you, and there is no other, No other God [besides Him]. Isaiah 45:14 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

There has been many hard times in my life where in reflection it is revealed that is was by the hand of Jehovah that He navigated me through them. No one or nothing else could have helped me through them. There is no other god to compare with my loving Heavenly Father. I am eternally grateful to Him for this blessing.

There have been many times when there was bountiful blessings showered upon me that made life easy and good. It was obvious with whom these blessing came forth from. Jehovah is truly a God of bountiful blessings. I am eternally grateful to Him for this blessing. There is no god like Him.

There has been uncountable times when the pain endured was unbearable and crushing. It was my loving Fathers comforting and soothing soft voice that brought encouragement and strength to not only endure them but to prosper through them (yes, sometimes Jehovah allow us to go through the dross to remove the impurities in us to mould us into even more beautiful children of His). I am eternally grateful to Him for this blessing. There truly is no other god like Him

There has been numberless times when I was blessed with His immeasurable love that filled every molecule in the body with total and complete joy to the extent that it felt like I was going to explode in ecstasy. There is nothing to compare with that experience. I am eternally grateful to Him for this blessing. There truly is no other god like Him.

God is a God of the present. God is always in the moment, be that moment hard or easy, joyful or painful. Henri Nouwen

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ‘Immeku (The Lord Is With You) for being with me through all of my trials and tribulations, sorrows and snares. I never would have made it without You. Thank you my Beloved Father for blessing me with communion with You. It makes my heart dance with joy every time I am in Your loving presence. I exalt You in the name of He with whom I long to spend eternity with Jesus Christ. Amen

May your house be filled with joy in the morning and sweet dreams at night. May it be a home where love has come to live. Joseph a son of Jehovah

God is in Your Midst  

GOD IS WITH US

This past week mom (I am a unpaid live in care giver for my mom. If I am not here she will be put into a seniors home) has been constantly taunting me that this is HER house and she does not need me. She can throw me out at her slightest whim.   I know my Lord desires me to remain here but it really gets me down.         

 These verses and quotes stuck out to me this morning while reading morning devotionals.              

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    The Holy Bible Amplified Version                                    

 “I will never [under any circumstances] desert you [nor give you up nor leave you without support, nor will I in any degree leave you helpless], nor will I forsake or let you down or relax My hold on you [assuredly not]!”  Hebrews 13:5 The Holy Bible Amplified Version                         

   I don’t know what  tomorrow brings;  But I know who knows, and I know He holds my hand who holds tomorrow in His other hand. Joseph a son of Jehovah                                                                                  

   Is anything too difficult or too wonderful for the Lord? Genesis 18:14  The Holy Bible Amplified Version             

   “What seems too difficult for us is a sure sign that it belongs to God.” — Marie DePree                                                                  

 “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 The Holy Bible Amplified Version                                             

About an hour afterwards as laying in bed my heart started tingling like a mild electric current was stimulating it.  Then there was a tingling in my mouth (no not like the current was running from my heart to my mouth but each was separate). I could not stop singing Glllllory, gloorrry , glorrry in excelsis.        

Next my right finger after the thumb tingled and was outstretched towards Heaven. This continued for an hour.                                                                     

 Wow, what an experience.                                                                      

   Do you think my Heavenly Love was trying to tell me something?  

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ‘Immeku (The Lord Is With You) for blessing me with your reassurance that no matter what comes my way whether good or bad You are always right here with me. You are indeed all I need in life and You are my life. I exalt You in the name of my best friend who continuously walks beside me Jesus Christ. Amen May

Christ bless you with love, joy and peace today and every day.

Trust Him For the Rest of the Way. ‘

GOD IS WITH US

Do not fear [anything], for I am with you; Do not be afraid, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, be assured I will help you; I will certainly take hold of you with My righteous right hand [a hand of justice, of power, of victory, of salvation].’ Isaiah 41:10 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

In our walk with Jehovah there is constant fear. That is because Jehovah is constantly calling us to step out into the known and trust in His guidance and provision.

From personal experience it can not be fearful but down right terrifying.

He always calls us out in baby steps in the beginning of our walk with Him and each time we listen and obey we see His providence and then He asks us to take bigger steps as we mature in our relationship with Him. When you are obedient unto Him, you will be amazed at the incredible things He will accomplish in your life and through your life.

Even for us that have walked with Him for a long time there are still times of fear in listening to and obeying Him. The thing is though, that the more you step out into the unknown in obedience, the more you learn to trust and have confidence in Him. In reflection in our walk with Him we will be in constant awe and admiration for Him for succeeding in doing so many impossible feats in our lives and what He has done through our lives .

“At times all of us experience fear. But don’t allow fear to keep you from being used by God. He has kept you thus far; trust Him for the rest of the way.” — Woodroll Kroll

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Immanuel (God is with us) for benefiting me with Your Holy presence throughout my life. May my confidence in You and the rest of the trinity grow stronger every day. I exalt Thee in the name of He who encourages me constantly Jesus Christ. Amen

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

He Starts With an Impossibility.

wild-tulips-growing-in-the-shade-alond-a-gentle-stream

But He said, “The things that are impossible with people are possible with God.” Luke 18:27 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

In every major event of my growth in my walk with Christ it was always preceded by a extreme difficult time in my life. Each time the Lord was speaking to me to take a huge leap of faith in what He wanted me to do and where He wanted me to go. In obedience unto Him He orchestrated life changing alteration to my persona. Each procession involved taking what seemed like an impossible task. It was extremely challenging and painful, however in reflection I praise Him every day for His infinite wisdom, assistance, comfort and strength.

So, when, or if Jehovah is now, asking you to take that leap of faith it is strongly recommended that you step out into the unknown because it is there that He shall bless you with making Himself known to you.

“When God is about to do something great, he starts with a difficulty. When he is about to do something truly magnificent, he starts with an impossibility.” — Armin Gesswein

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ‘Uzam (The Lord is our Strength in Trouble) for Your grace in using my troubles and woes to accomplish amazing feats in my life to bring glory, honour and the little lost sheep unto You. I praise You in the name of He who astounded those around Him with His fantastic grace Jesus Christ. Amen

May Gods sunshine always bless you with brightening your day with His love, joy and peace. Joseph a son of Jehovah
