We Would Not Believe It.

 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 Holy Bible Amplified Version

I am glad Jehovah did not inform me of His long term plans for me because I would not have believed it. Many of them would have been terrifying to me because He walked with me through some pretty difficult and dangerous times. They had to happen to make me grow in faith, reverence, love and respect for Him.

As well the plans He had for me to be in service unto Him were unimaginable to a quiet country boy like me.

“Sometimes God does not tell us His plan because we would not believe it anyway.” Carlton Pearson

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Rohi ( Jesus is our Divine Shepherd )for blessing me for with holding Your Divine plans for me because they would have been too terrifying and beyond my capability to understand them. Thank You for the incredible things You have accomplished in my life and through my life through those plans. I exalt You in Your awesome name. Amen.

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

The Light at the Top of the Stairs.

 

 Once more Jesus addressed the crowd. He said, “I am the Light of the world. He who follows Me will not walk in the darkness, but will have the Light of life.” John 8:12 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Every night for the past few weeks when I wake up during the night there is a light that shines through the window onto me. This verse always comes to my mind.

It is the Holy Spirit confirming unto me that as a Christian I am walking in Christs Divine light in every aspect of my life. It is like second nature unto me.

When ever there comes a crisis the first thing is to automatically go to Christ in prayer and then meditate upon His Divine word. The Holy Spirit faithfully guides me to verses and their meaning which directs me to the proper manner in which to handle the situation. Whenever there is something required in my life a decision to be made the first priority to go to Christ in prayer.

Again The Holy Spirit faithfully guides me to verses and their meaning which directs me to the proper manner in which to handle the situation.

Whenever there is trouble coming my way the first priority to go to Christ in prayer.

Again The Holy Spirit faithfully guides me to verses and their meaning which directs me to the proper manner in which to handle the situation.

In every aspect of my life this process is repeated. Jesus never fails me. He always answers my prayer and guides me to the successful victory through every situation in my life like a lighthouse beam that guides a ship through treacherous waters.

Walking in the light prevents many treacherous pit falls in the darkness that surrounds every Christian. Joseph son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ‘Ori (the Lord is my Light) for being the wonderful light in my life. I praise You in the name of He who is the light of life Jesus Christ. Amen

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

We are in this Together.

 

 The heartfelt and persistent prayer of a righteous man (believer) can accomplish much [when put into action and made effective by God—it is dynamic and can have tremendous power]. James 5:16 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

We are in this together.

We need to pray for each other more than we need to lend a helping hand.

The reason for this is that through our prayers we bring into play Jehovahs power at our request.

After all, what loving father would not oblige an obedient, respectful loving childs request if the child asks trusting that the request will be answered in the positive.

Through my prayers amazing things blessings have occurred for others that are impossible to answer using human logic. This of course of the perfect timing to share the gospel with others and bring them into Jehovahs awesome family.

Praying for others is a true act of love towards them. Joseph son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireh ( God provides ) for always providing for the receptive ones I pray for. I exalt You in the name of He who is the answer to all of our prayers Jesus Christ. Amen

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

At All Times Through Him

 

At all times through Him, therefore, let us at all times offer up to God a sacrifice of praise, which is the fruit of lips that thankfully acknowledge and confess and glorify His name. Hebrews 13:15 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

That can be a difficult one can’t it?

You are going through a divorce or death of a loved one. How can you give thanks in that circumstance?

Give thanks that through Jesus He will guide you, heal you, comfort you, encourage you and strengthen you. The world does not have this blessing.

The same can be said in every situation in life.

I thank my Beloved best Friend Jesus Christ for walking with me through my many trials and tribulations, sorrows and snares. I never would have made it without Him.

Whenever theses events are shared with another they are glorifying His awesome name.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ‘Immeku (The Lord Is With You) for blessing me with walking with me through the firestorms in my life encouraging me, strengthening me, comforting me and healing me. I extol Thee in the name of He who calmed the raging storms for His disciples 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.

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.

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.
