Do Not be Afraid.

 ‘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].’ “Indeed, all those who are angry with you will be put to shame and humiliated; Those who strive against you will be as nothing and will perish. Isaiah 41:10-11 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

When you experience Jehovah calling you out into the unknown do not be afraid. This of course is easier said then done.

For me I used to call out and say as the man said to Jesus: “ I believe, help me in my unbelief.” In essence he was saying I know You can do it but there are still doubts, please help me conquer my doubts.” There is nothing wrong with that. It is being perfectly honest with Jehovah which is what He desires of us.

Of course the longer we walk into the unknown with our Master the more trust we have in Him.

Do you notice how it says to take hold of His right hand?

The right hand signified supreme authority, Divine blessing, strength, justice and power.

So Jehovah is informing you to freely and confidently call upon His right hand to deliver Divine justice while abundantly pouring out His majestic strength and power into your spirit to conquer any wicked ones that stupidly attack one who belongs to the Supreme King. Of course we see the results at the final passage and it will not be pleasant to your attackers.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Helech ‘Olam (The Lord our King Forever) for blessing this humble child of Your with Your limitless strength, provisions, justice, provisions and wisdom while following the path You have chosen for me to take to the Heavenly home You have prepared for me to take. I exalt You in the name of He who depended upon Your Divine strength to walk all the way to the cross for me Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

With Great Confidence.

 

And we know [with great confidence] that God [who is deeply concerned about us] causes all things to work together [as a plan] for good for those who love God, to those who are called according to His plan and purpose For those whom He foreknew [and loved and chose beforehand], He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son [and ultimately share in His complete sanctification], so that He would be the firstborn [the most beloved and honored] among many believers. Romans 8:28-29 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Boy I sure never had that, great confidence, when enduring my trials and tribulations, sorrows and snare in my early walk with Christ.

The two questions that were constantly asked of Him were: “Why are you doing this to me? and “Where are You through all this?”

When the raging storms and fire storms had passed it was revealed that He was there. These circumstances were used to teach me valuable lessons, the most important of which was there was to be complete trust in our Savior that He was walking with it with us.

As well they were used to burn off the dross and mold me into a beautiful child of Jehovahs.

Now there is constant thanks and wonder ( at just what He is doing through this experience ) during these events.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Bara (The Lord Creator) for the awesome work You have accomplished in this difficult lump of clay. I praise You in the name of He who transformed some very difficult lumps of clay into world changing disciples Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

We Can be a Superman.

 

And [so that you will begin to know] what the immeasurable and unlimited and surpassing greatness of His [active, spiritual] power is in us who believe. These are in accordance with the working of His mighty strength Ephesians 1:19 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

We can be a superman or a superwoman.

No we will not be able to leap tall buildings in a single bound, no we will not be faster than a speeding bullet not stronger than steel.

We have free and plentiful supplies every day of the power from the Holy Spirit.

This super power will enable us to be patient when we want to scream at someone or something.

This super power will bless us with astounding wisdom which will make scammers and scammers look like fools whenever they foolishly attempt to entrap us.

This super power will enable us to love when the world says to hate.

This super power will enable us to forgive when the world says we should extract vengeance.

This super power is exclusively available unto Jehovahs children when we ask for it and obey the Fathers commands on how to receive it.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ‘Izoa Hakaboth ( The Lord Strong and Mighty ) for blessing me with Your Divine strength to walk as a loving obedient child of Yours through this dark cold world. I extol Thee in the name of He who is the Light of the World 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.

Your strong impenetrable defense

No temptation [regardless of its source] has overtaken or enticed you that is not common to human experience [nor is any temptation unusual or beyond human resistance]; but God is faithful [to His word—He is compassionate and trustworthy], and He will not let you be tempted beyond your ability [to resist], but along with the temptation He [has in the past and is now and] will [always] provide the way out as well, so that you will be able to endure it [without yielding, and will overcome temptation with joy]. 1 Corinthians 10:13

Satan the greatest conner always make poo poo look like sugar. Then when you get addicted to it he tries to convince you that you are not strong enough to resist the temptation.

He is partly right.

Sometimes when temptation comes our way Jehovah will allow to endure it to see how much we have grown ( that is not so much for Him but to show us how weak our strength can be so we do not become arrogant). Sometimes He will deliver us from it to revel to us just how great He is.

The best defence is offence and the best offensive weapon is to know Bible verses and use them to defeat the not so great a deceiver.

“The history of every temptation, and of every sin, is the same; the outward object of attraction, the inward commotion of mind, the increase and triumph of passionate desires, ending in the degradation, slavery, and ruin of the soul.” Unknown

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Ganan (The Lord is Our Defense) for blessing me with Your strong impenetrable defense both in Your Divine word and with Your omnipotent presence to defeat the wily sneak satan when he craftily tempts me. I rejoice in this reassurance in the name of He who used the word to defeat the wicked one in the wilderness during His temptation Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Do They Hate You?

  Blessed [morally courageous and spiritually alive with life-joy in God’s goodness] are you when people hate you, and exclude you [from their fellowship], and insult you, and scorn your name as evil because of [your association with] the Son of Man. Rejoice on that day and leap for joy, for your reward in heaven is great [absolutely inexhaustible]; for their fathers used to treat the prophets in the same way. Luke 6:22-23 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Since becoming a Christian do you find many in your family actually hate you?

I have, it is common. Most of them will not even talk with me anymore and cannot stand to be around me. I am not a Bible thumper and shove the Bible in their faces. Yes I will correct them when they try to get me to participate in their wickedness with Bible verses and explain to them what it means. I do not condemn them, I leave that up to the Holy Spirit. I just explain to them why I will not walk that walk with them when they are selfish, self centered, conniving, and gossiping. They walk in the world and when they see me walk in righteousness they hate me because my walk convicts them of their wickedness.

The same is said with those with whom I chummed around with. They will make spiteful remarks towards me and look for any little thing to criticize me and be judgmental towards me. They will cruelly mock ( make fun of me ) me.

As they did to Christ so too will they do unto those that belong to Christ. Joseph son of Jehovah

The thing is though that since walking in Christ there is a whole lot less stress and emptiness in my life. It is filled with Divine love, joy and peace, which is something sorely lacking in their lives. A prophet is, in its simplest form, one who speaks the Word of God to the world around them.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Machsi ( Lord my Refuge ) for blessing me with a Holy Tabernacle to take refuge in while the wicked ones are assaulting me because of my walk with You. I extol Thee in the name of He who was constantly attacked during His walk here on earth Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Try as You May.

 For it is [not your strength, but it is] God who is effectively at work in you, both to will and to work [that is, strengthening, energizing, and creating in you the longing and the ability to fulfill your purpose] for His good pleasure. Philippians 2:13 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

We all have addictions of one form or another. Try as you may you cannot conquer them. It is only when you completely surrender them unto Christ that they will be conquered.

That is good because you will use this experience as a testimony to the lost of freedom from their living Hell into the loving peace and joy that is only available unto those that belong unto Christ.

That is the blessing I have received and gladly share as testimony with others.

We are all given assignments from the Holy Spirit that is impossible for us to accomplish. It is only when we depend upon the Holy Spirits power and direction that we will succeed in these tasks.

That is good because we will use these to encourage those experiencing difficulties in their lives.

That is the blessing I have received and gladly share as testimony with others.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Tsori ( Lord my Strength ) for blessing me with the strength required to conquer my weaknesses and to fulfill Your daily assigned tasks. Thank you for the numerous opportunities to use this to share my personal testimony and by Your grace use this to guide others unto You. I exalt You in the name of He who is the Way Jesus Christ. Amen.

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