A Continuous War.

 We are pressed on every side by troubles, but we are not crushed. We are perplexed, but not driven to despair. We are hunted down, but never abandoned by God. We get knocked down, but we are not destroyed. 2 Corinthians 4:8-9 Holy Bible New Living Translation

As Christians we are in a continuous war.

There is of course, war with those that are liberal minded (if it feels good do it, there is no absolute right or wrong, there is no God).

There is the constant was against demons who relish nothing more than destroying our loving relationship with Jehovah, Jesus and the Holy Spirit.

But, the most brutal of all wars is raged in our hearts and minds.

Thoughts of lust, greed, anger, fear and worry are our ever present foes.

That is why it is so important to be in continuous prayer.

When these thoughts and emotions enter our minds and hearts we are to immediately call out to Jehovah to send the Holy Spirit to sweep these thoughts from us like you sweep dirt out of a house.

Then, to fill our house with the sweet fragrance of love, joy and gratitude to our loving Father Jehovah our precious Savior Jesus Christ and our strong Deliverer the Holy Spirit.

“Who sits in solitude and is quiet has escaped from three wars: hearing, speaking, seeing; yet against one thing shall he continually battle: that is, his own heart.”  St. Antony

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Gibbor Milchamah (Psalms 24:8 The LORD Mighty In Battle) for blessing me with the weapons required on a daily basis for the continual battle in my mind and heart. Thank you that through Your strength and wisdom victory is guaranteed. Thank you that when I lose a battle and call out to You, You sooth my soul while blessing me with healing balm for my heart. You are such a wonderful Warrior King. I praise You in Your majestic name. Amen

Wishing you a house full of sunshine, hearts full of cheer and love that grows deeper each day of the year. Welsh blessing

I Have Great Joy in Knowing

Today, my Beloved, I choose to receive my joy and strength in You.

Joy in knowing You love me with a Heavenly love as I seek opportunities to bring joy to Your treasured heart.

I know that in the cold dark world out there the devil reigns in bringing chaos and difficulties to everyone’s life but his aim is on the bulls eye of my heart because it belongs to You. He will do everything in His power to destroy our loving relationship.

I have great joy in knowing You are a force field that his evil wicked arrows cannot pierce when I place me confidence in You. Please bless me to never be in such a hurry I cannot be loving and respectful to others even when they are not respective unto me.

Please bless me to be forgiving instead of holding petty grudges and resentments.

I know that I am weak and gullible and as such an easy target for satan .

I also know that no one is as strong nor as intelligent as you. Therefore my loving Poppa in Heaven will protect me from the manipulative schemes of the wcked as I venture through this day. For that my heart dances with songs of praise for You through out the day.

Thank you my love for blessing me with all that is needed to live a victorious life in You and through You this day and every day.

It is in the name of the best Sheppard that guides this little lamb of His to Your Heavenly home that I humbly ask for these blessings and joyfully praise You them, 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

In the Stormy Billows

We can rejoice, too, when we run into problems and trials, for we know that they help us develop endurance.  And endurance develops strength of character Romans 5:3-4 The Holy Bible, The New Living Testament Version

It is in the storms of life we grow the most. Joseph a son of Jehovah

We grow in dependence upon Jehovah for delivery of our trials and tribulations.

We grow the most in the skills and strength He blesses us with to conquer the storms no matter how much they rage in or lives.

This is why I believe the education system in the west and the momma bears would pamper their children are doing a severe dis-service to their children. By sheltering them through the hard times they nurture spinless, entitled momma boys and girls who are unprepared for the world when they leave the nest. This is the major reason there is so much cry babying in society today in the west. The young feel entitled and expect the government to pamper them like mommy and their teachers did.

“Talents are best nurtured in solitude: character is best formed in the stormy billows of the world.” Goethe

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Elohim Ozer Li (Psalms 54:4 GOD My Helper) for blessing me with Your saving help whenever the storms are too great for me to conquer. Thank you for helping me to defeat the raging storms when You know I need to and can defeat them on my own. I praise You in the name of He who calmed the raging storm for His disciples on that lake Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Equip Me To

 Dear Father,

You are a righteous, holy, and just God, awesome and blameless in all Your ways.

Please lead me in the way of Your righteousness. Please help me my Love to always walk in Your obedience because I love You and have a deep desire to live the life You prefer me to live.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Father, strengthen me to fix my eyes on Jesus when tempted and to emulate Him when He was tempted. Let Your word equip me to follow His example in resisting temptation.

Deliver me, Father, from the sneaky, destructive schemes of the evil one, for only You know how to rescue Your godly ones. Thank you that I can always take refuge in the shadow of Your protective wings.

I praise You that with every temptation, You are faithful to give me a way to escape it.

I sincerely beseech You in the of the conquer of all sin Jesus Christ.

I am Not Afraid Of

I am not afraid of those that attack me, for the Lord my God will fight for me.’ Deuteronomy 3:22  The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

BE STILL

There has been so many times when I was bullied when a child it left me with little confidence.

The more Jehovah came into every being of my life the less fear there was of others and the more confidence there was in Him.

It did not happen all at once but took many decades of experience with Him. Especially with me, having a strong independent streak in me it was difficult to surrender the situation to Him.

Now, when situations arise where there is a threat from someone there is no fear in this child of His’ heart. There is complete trust that my Big Daddy in Heaven is bigger, stronger and much more resourceful that any that attempt to abuse me.

The more we mature in Jehovah the less fear we will have of others. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Gibbor Milchamah (Psalms 24:8 The LORD Mighty In Battle) that when ever someone unfairly attempts to abuse me You have taught me to step back and allow You to handle the situation. You are the smack down champion of the universe and beyond. I exalt You in the name of He who smacked satan down in the wilderness Jesus Christ. Amen May

Christ bless you with love, joy and peace today and every day. Joseph a son of Jehovah

When Trouble Comes

 The Lord is good, a strong refuge when trouble comes. He is close to those who trust in him. Nahum 1:7 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Those of us that have walked with Christ for a while know full well the difficulty in trusting in Him. There are times it seems as if there is nothing but trouble a woe in our lives. It seems as if the world is crushing down on us and we are going to explode. We cry out unto Jehovah but He is silent. This is the most difficult time to trust in Him. Even those of us that have walked the trail for a long time have at times difficulty trusting in Him during crushing crises.

JEHOVAHS CARE

That is okay though.

As long as we call out unto Him, trusting He will answer (and He always does).

For me I have experienced Jehovah delivering me from the tsunami of pain (mental, physical and spiritual) as well as being blessed with His presence during the tornadoes of life, when my life is being ripped apart by unemployment, destruction of relationships. One thing that is the same in each is His Spirit being with me through it all.

The Holy Spirit encourages, reassures and strengthens me through it all. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Elohim Machase Lanu (Psalms 62:8 GOD Our Refuge) for blessing me with Your impenetrable refuge from the fire storms of life that try to burn me to nothing through trials and temptations that come my way.                                                                                                               Thank you that You are my impenetrable refuge when the tsunamis of trouble and worry come crashing down upon me with little to no warning.                                                                            I praise You in the name of He who calmed the seas of trouble in His disciples lives 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

Are You Willing To

CHRIST FIRST, OTHERS SECOND

Those who belong to Christ Jesus have nailed the passions and desires of their sinful nature to his cross and crucified them there. Since we are living by the Spirit, let us follow the Spirit’s leading in every part of our lives. Galatians 5:24-25 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

In order for us to have a deep relationship with Jehovah first we must sacrifice the most important thing in our lives, we must sacrifice ourselves. Self is the opaque veil that hides the face of God from us. It can be removed only in spiritual experience, never by mere instruction.A. W. Tozer

Are you willing to perform that difficult sacrifice?

Let’s face it, without Christ everything we do we do for ourselves isn’t it ?

In our relationships isn’t it really all about ourselves?

Oh we may be dedicated husbands or wives, we may be dedicated parents, but what are our motives?

Isn’t it to satisfy a need to be loved and respected?

When we have all the latest toys isn’t it to satisfy ourselves or to impress people so as to inflate our ego?

On the other hand when we sacrifice ourselves unto God we put Him first.

Christ first, others second, self last is every Christians motto. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Now why would we do something stupid like that you ask?

Every Christian will reply it is in gratitude for His deep divine love for us.

Now, that does not sound stupid does it? 

See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! 1 John 3:1 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Only one life, so live it well, And keep your candle trimmed and bright; Eternity, not time, will tell The radius of that candle’s light. —Miller

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Helech ‘Olam (The Lord our King Forever) Psalms 10:16 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation for blessing me with the honor of being Your humble, loyal servant. Thank you Holy Spirit for teaching me how to always put my Beloved King first and for blessing me with the strength to do so. I exalt You my Holy Beloved in Your majestic name. Amen

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

Do You Experience It Too?

JEHOVAH ALWAYS SUPPLIES

 

 A good man obtains favor from the LORD, but the LORD condemns a crafty man. Proverbs 12:2, New International Version

You’re not as smart as you think.

Is it just me or do you experience it too?

It seems as if everyone is out for the con. Many merchants try to sell you their products promising a new and improved you. Yet even after spending a lot of money, you are the same you.

Where I live almost everything is pirated. Oh sure it will have the logo on it and the salesman or woman will swear it is original, but after careful examination you discover it is fake.

How about someone who pretends to be your friend, just because they want to con you into giving them something you own.

Again, here it is important to learn English. The locals all pretend to be your best friend as long as you are willing to teach them for free. When you smarten up and justify inform them you expect to get paid, they look at you like you are crap and then throw you away like yesterdays garbage?

Does it ever make you want to throw your hands up and quit being a nice guy or girl?

Please do not give up.

The important thing to remember is that God promises to reward us for our behavior.

If we do good we receive good, if not in this life, in our eternal life in Heaven.

If we do bad, we have fiery coals of retribution poured upon us. Again, if not in this life, than in the eternal life in Hell.

This is a warning and a blessing.

 

Which are you going to reap?

As I have observed, those who plow evil and those who sow trouble reap it. Job 4:8  The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Remember this: Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously. 2 Corinthians 9:6 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Which crops are you sowing, the crops of righteousness or, the vile filthy wicked crops of the devil?

Prayer: Please Jehovah El Shaddai (God who is sufficient for the needs of His people) give me the strength to always walk the walk of the righteous and not give up in living a holy life dedicated to You. In the name of our great leader Jesus Christ I pray. Amen

(editors note: this was written when I was a teacher in China which was a few years ago)

Wishing you a house full of sunshine, hearts full of cheer and love that grows deeper each day of the year. Welsh blessing

A Shelter For

DELIVERANCE COMES FROM THE LORD

The Lord is a shelter for the oppressed, a refuge in times of trouble. Those who know your name trust in you, for you, O Lord, do not abandon those who search for you. Psalm 9:9-10 The Holy Bible, New Living Translation

The longer we walk with Christ the more we are assured that He will never leave us nor forsake us no matter what the situation.

Jesus cares, Jesus is always there. Joseph a son of Jehovah

That is the rock that has been my firm foundation during the most severe hurricanes that has come crashing into my life.

Now, when we see those whose faith is weak we are to share these experiences with them to strengthen and encourage them.

Prayer: Please Holy Spirit Immeku (The Lord Is With You) Judges 6:12 remind me of how You walked with me through oh so many trials and tribulations, sorrows and snares and dangers in the past so that I will have complete confidence in you whenever they come upon me in the future. Because this will cause my heart to sing for joy knowing you are there, you care and you have total control over the situation.

 

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