Don’t Trust Everything You See.

  But test all things carefully [so you can recognize what is good]. Hold firmly to that which is good. 1 Thessalonians 5:21 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

In my younger days I was very naive and trusting. A sucker in waiting you might say.

As there was maturity in my Christian walk there was not a spirit of cynicism but rather one of wisdom.

One of the traits learned was of an old Jewish tradition that dictated the before any deal was made first there must be three days of prayer. Following this simple procedure has prevented a lot of grief and frustration.

As we pray Jehovah leads us to Bible verses or when reading a contract to notice things which were overlooked the first time which ensnares us. This has prevented me from entering into horrible contracts which would have brought nothing of benefit to me and considerable loss.

He leads us to be patient and look at the character of those around us which prevents us from mixing with the wrong company as He opens our eyes to their attitudes and disposition. This has prevented me from getting entangled in disastrous relationships.

“Don’t trust everything you see. Even salt looks like sugar.” Unknown

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ‘Ori (the Lord is my Light) for blessing me with the light of Your Divine wisdom in every aspect of my life. It leads me from trouble and onto the path of righteousness. I extol Thee in the name of the wisest king of them all Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

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.

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.

His Name is Jehovah.

 “When my soul was fainting within me, I remembered the Lord, And my prayer came to You, Into Your holy temple. Jonah 2:7 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

The older we get the more our soul faints with in, except, for those of us who belong to Christ.

You know why our soul does not grow weak?

Because we have the greatest strengthener there can ever be. His name is Jehovah.

I cannot count the number of times my finances were exhausted and I had no job because of a recession. Yes money was put away for this inevitability but it was put into investments that a naive one like me did not realize that the investment firm would charge exorbitant charges for cashing in the investment and the blood sucker government would take a huge chunk as well leaving me with a pittance to hold me over. That is what happens when you trust in corporations in my opinion, they are out to make money off of you and do not want to pay out. It took many years to walk away from these scoundrels and depend upon the best investment councilor there is. His name is Jehovah. Since listening to His wise advice and obeying His guidance there has never been a shortage of fiances ( mind you part of that is learning to live frugally and not to be a part of the foolish materialistic world).

In my younger days I used to read a lot of self help books to improve myself. Some were good and are still referenced to today ( especially because they confirm what the Bible says) but most were complete rubbish (especially the ones written by the “ new agers” ).

Self help is no where near as effective as Jehovahs help. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Today I depend upon the wisest Guidance Councilor there is.

His name is Jehovah.

Through His guidance book ( the Holy Bible), good Christian councilors and preachers He has remolded me in so many incredible ways so that there is no semblance of the old creature but only a new and much improved child of His.

The same is said in dealing with interpersonal relationships. Yes there are still times when my soul becomes weak within me but when those times come ( and they always do ) the proper course of action is taken and the soul is strengthened. The proper course of course is taking it to my loving, wise Councilor.

His name is Jehovah.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Chatsahi (The Lord is my Strength) for blessing me with Your ultimate strength in my times of weaknesses. I would have never made it without You my love. I extol Thee in the name of my strong Savior Jesus Christ. Amen

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

How Much do You Trust?

in-his-arms

  Then they asked Him, “What are we to do, so that we may habitually be doing the works of God?” Jesus answered, “This is the work of God: that you believe [adhere to, trust in, rely on, and have faith] in the One whom He has sent.” John 6:28-29 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Another word for faith is trust.

How much do you trust Jehovah?

Be careful.

If you declare that you have complete trust in Him He will put you to the test and how foolish will you look then.

Personally I do not believe any Christian has complete and total trust in Jehovah. That is why we need to say: yes I believe, help my belief.”

That does not make sense does it?

Yes it does completely make sense.

We have faith in what Jehovah says is true but many times there is reservations about what He is saying to us. That is why we need to request that He bless us with enlarging our faith.

The just and upright shall live by faith.” Romans 1:17 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Every morning we need to ask by faith that Jehovah will direct our footsteps in our thoughts, words and deeds. Then, in trust we believe He will do it.

But without faith it is impossible to [walk with God and] please Him, for whoever comes [near] to God must [necessarily] believe that God exists and that He rewards those who [earnestly and diligently] seek Him. Hebrews 11:6 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

If you do not trust (have faith ) in Jesus then why are you following someone you do not have faith in? Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Emunah (God is faithful) for having such Divine trust in me and confidence in me that You have some times in baby steps some times in leaps enlarged me trust in You and Your loving ways. 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.
