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

Dear Father

I sing praise, honor, and glory to You, Jehovah, my only true and living God.

SEEKING JEHOVAHS ADVICE

I praise You for revealing the true knowledge of God’s mystery, Christ Himself, in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.

Please bless me with Your Divine understanding in how to life a daily life that is pleasing to You..

In Jesus Christ’s I respectfully ask. Amen

I Will Not Doubt

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take.” Proverbs 3:5-6 The Holy Bible, The New Living Testament

trust in God

I will not doubt, though all my ships at sea
Come drifting home with broken masts and sails;
I will believe the Hand which never fails
From seeming evil worketh good for me.
And though I weep because those sails are tattered,
Still will I cry, while my best hopes lie shattered;
I trust in You. I will not doubt, though all my prayers return
Unanswered from the still, white realm above;
I will believe it is an all-wise love
Which has refused these things for which I yearn.
And though at times I cannot keep from grieving,
Yet the pure ardor of my fixed believing
Undimmed shall burn.

I will not doubt, though sorrows fall like rain,
And troubles swarm like bees about a hive;
I will believe the heights for which I strive
Are only reached by anguish and by pain.
And though I groan and writhe beneath my crosses,
I yet shall see through my severest losses
The greater gain.

I will not doubt. Well anchored is this faith,
Like some staunch ship, my soul braves every gale;
So strong its courage that it will not quail
To breast the mighty unknown sea of death.
Oh, may I cry, though body parts with spirit,

I do not doubt, so listening worlds may hear it,
With my last breath.   

Author Unknown

PRAYER: Thank you  Jehovah Immeka (Judges 6:12 The LORD Is with You)  that You are always there, that You always care.                                                  Thank you that You will never desert me nor leave me.                   I gratefully praise You in the name of my most steadfast friend Jesus Christ. Amen 

No matter if everyone else deserts You, Jesus is the steady rock that You can always depend upon Joseph a son of Jehovah

A Lowly Worm

 Though you are a lowly worm, O Jacob, don’t be afraid, people of Israel, for I will help you. I am the Lord, your Redeemer. Isaiah 41:14 The Holy Bible The New Living Translation

The worm is a lowly creature that is easily destroyed. It is weak and helpless.

That is exactly the Christian that Jehovah accomplishes the most with.

Those are the ones that do not depend upon their own strength nor wit to accomplish the task our Heavenly King sets before them.

Those are the ones that will stun the world because of Jehovahs power beating within their souls.

Those are the ones that confuse those who are wise in their own feeble minds with the Holy Spirits wisdom coursing through the brain.

Those are the ones whose song of joy, praise, adulation and respect sings like a Heavenly chorus echoing through the Heavens when the guaranteed victory is gained to the Heavenly King. It was He who used His loyal submissive servant to gain triumph which the lowly servant gleefully admits.

The ones who depend upon their own wit or strength satan laughs at as they are as easily beaten as a two year old in a wrestling match against a twenty year old. Oh what a deep cloud of shame and humiliation encompasses them.

When Jehovah calls us to accomplish great tasks it is normal for us finite creatures to experience anything but terror at such a great task. We know our weaknesses and cry out “not I my love for I am weak, send someone else”. This is the one with whom the Holy Spirit accomplishes the greatest with as He fills the Christian with confidence and power and not of ones own disposition.

DIVINE STRENGTH

Then fear flees like a frightened bird replaced with the power and confidence of the Holy Spirit.

Satan and his minions tremble at the sight of one such as these.

Those strong and wise in the world turn and run like scared dogs at the sight of such ones as filled with the Holy Spirit. That and that alone is how a Christian lives a victorious life.

By my strength and wit only failure will be my reward. By submitting to The Holy Spirit victory is guaranteed. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Izuz Wegibbor (Psalms 24:8 The LORD Strong and Mighty) for blessing me with Your undefeatable strength when the foes are too numerous and too strong for me to defend myself against.                                             

Thank you for blessing me with the strength to continue on when exhausted to a great victory for You.

I praise You for Your mighty, yest gentle protective arm around this feeble child of Your in the name of He whose strength kept Him nailed to the agonizing cross to accomplish the most awesome feat of all, salvation to all, Jesus Christ. Amen

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

The Lord Leads With

 The Lord leads with unfailing love and faithfulness all who keep his covenant and obey his demands. Psalm 25:10 The Holy Bible,The  New Living Testament Version

Those He leads He takes care of. He makes sure they have a place to stay, food and clothing. Because our Father loves us, He is happy to give blessings to us other than these.

fullfilled-desires

That does not mean you will be living in a mansion or driving and expensive car or dining at fancy restaurants. But, you will be contented in your living arrangements because you will have all you need not all you desire which is a form of greed.

Someone who is faithful is someone who can be depended upon to keep their word of honour.

No one is more dependent than Jehovah. He has never broken any of His promises in over six thousand years. That sounds pretty dependable to me.

However, the catch is that we must keep His covenant.

What is His covenant?

First is that we show our love for Him by being loving and obedient children unto Him first and fore most above all others. We must obey His demands so we go where He tells us to go and do what He tells us to do.

Second, that we are loving towards others. We are loving towards them by being helpful, respectful, polite and firm when necessary.

When we are faithful unto Jehovah, He is innumerably more faithful unto us. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Rohi ( Jesus is our Divine Shepherd )- Psalm 23 that when I follow Your wise voice, You always lead me through the dark and dangerous valleys of life. I exalt You in the name of the greatest Shepard, Jesus Christ. Amen

May you be blessed with the gift of love, the gift of peace, the gift of joy. May you be blessed with numerous opportunities to share these gifts with others today.   Joseph a son of Jehovah

The Only Way To

NO DOMINION Discretion is a life giving fountain to those who possess it, but discipline is wasted on fools. Proverbs 16:22 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

The only way to possess discretion is by daily requesting it from He whose discretion is the best there is, that is Jehovah. We need to moment by moment depend upon the Holy Spirits discretion in every nick and cranny of our life.

Otherwise, we are easy prey for the scammers and con artists out there. The worst one of them all of course is satan. He will con you all the way into Hell if you let him. I have learned this the hard way but I pray the lesson is never forgotten.

Depend upon the Holy Spirit for success. Anything else, is a recipe for failure and disaster. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer:Thank you Jehovah Ori (Psalms 27:1) – The LORD My Light for blessing me with sending the Holy Spirit to shine His brilliant light of wisdom to guide me to righteous discretion. It has prevented a lot of grief in my life and blessed me with abundant peace.                                                                             I sing my praise unto You in the name of the wisest of all 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

One of the Most Important Things

city shrounded in mist in the mountains seen through the forest Hong Kong-crop

Teach me to do your will, for you are my God. May your gracious Spirit lead me forward on a firm footing. Psalm 143:10 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation.

One of the most important things learned in life is that our greatest lessons are learned from our failures.

Just look up any invention and find out how many times the inventor failed before finally having success.

When we mess up we fess up and Jehovah forgives us, picks us up and tells us okay, you messed up, now learn your lesson and continue on towards you maturity in your walk towards Heaven.

If you have not learned your lesson, do not worry, Jehovah will allow it to be repeated until it is learned.

I believe failure is the greatest tool the Holy Spirit uses to teach us. Joseph a son of Jehovah

The more we learn from our failures and how the Holy Spirit guides us to success from them them more we become firmly established upon the path to Heaven the Holy Spirit is guiding us on. Joseph a son of Jehovah

That is one of the greatest crimes parents and teachers commit with children. They do not let them learn from their failures.

Prayer:Thank you Holy Spirit Rabbi (God our Teacher) for blessing me with Your wise, powerful and effective manner of teaching me. May it always help to evolve my relationship with my loving Heavenly Father, Jehovah loving big brother Jesus and You the most amazing Teacher ever closer and stronger.                                                                                                                 I give thanks and humbly ask of these blessings in the name of the best Teacher 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

I Choose Not to Choose

complete deditacation

 

P. T. Forsythe said, “The purpose of life is not to find your freedom. The purpose of life is to find your Master.”

Jesus is the best master

“He guides me along the right paths for his name’s sake.” Psalm 23:3 New International Version

I choose not to choose my own path, but to follow the Holy Spirits guidance. Yes we should take it to God in prayer and honest Bible study before making a career choice.

This should be our Christian motto: “I choose not to choose.”

But the wisdom that comes from heaven is first of all pure and full of quiet gentleness. Then it is peace-loving and courteous. It allows discussion and is willing to yield to others; it is full of mercy and good deeds. It is wholehearted and straightforward and sincere” James 3:17 The Holy Bible King James Version

Take it to Jehovah for all of our life’s decisions. Whether it be a school to attend, a course to take a life mate or an investment.

“Commit thy way unto the Lord; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass” (Psalms. 37:5).The Holy Bible King James Version

Whatever, I believe in doing as the Jews do. Before making any decisions always take it to Jehovah in prayer for three days. See what the results may be. You may not like them in the short run. But, over time it may be revealed to you just how horrible a mistake you could have made if you went with what you thought was right .

“He guides the humble in what is right and teaches them his way.” (Psalm 25:9 The Holy Bible New International Version)

Independence is opening the door to allow satan into your life. We all know of course he is the master of destruction. Only a fool believes they are independent. They are easy prey for satan.

“All of us, like sheep, have strayed away. We have left God’s paths to follow our own” (Isaiah 53:6a The Holy Bible New Living Translation).

We therefore, have two choices in life: 1) Choose to allow the loving Father to guide our choices or

2) Let the destroyer and torturer (satan) make the choice by tricking us into believing it is our own choice.

“There is a way that appears to be right, but in the end it leads to death” Proverbs 14:12 (The Holy Bible New International Version).

I choose to let Jehovah choose, it is the smartest choice I have ever made.Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah for blessing me with sending the Holy Spirit El Deah (God of knowledge) to guide me through out the challenging discourse of life.              May I always listen , understand and obey His wise guidance.                                      I exalt You and humbly request this in the name of He who is the wisest of all Jesus Christ. Amen

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

This Verse Says It All.

evil desires

 And we are instructed to turn from godless living and sinful pleasures. We should live in this evil world with wisdom, righteousness, and devotion to God Titus 2:11-12 The Holy Bible New Living Translation

This verse says it all.

There are those that foolishly believe that once they are saved by grace alone they can go out and do whatever their flesh desires and it is okay because Jesus died for their sins.

You cannot have it both ways.

Either you will be a slave to fleshly desires or you will obediently serve Christ of your own free will.

The first one is a cruel slave master which kills the spirit and slowly painfully destroys the soul.

The second one brings life to the body and brings joyous eternity to the spirit. Christ blesses us with love, peace and joy, the world curses us with anger, fear, depression, worry and unfulfillment. I choose Christ. Which one do you choose? Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Helech ‘Olam (The Lord our King Forever) Ps10:16 for blessing me with the honour of being Your humble obedient servant. I thank You in Your majestic name. Amen

Christ blesses us with love, peace and joy May you be blessed with many opportunities to share these with others today.

I’ve Heard It Said

LOVE IS

Respect everyone, and love the family of believers.1 Peter 2:17 Holy Bible New Living Translation

This is great relationship advice.

I’ve heard it said don’t go to bed while hanging on to sorrow, you may not have the chance to laugh with those you love tomorrow.

You may not mean the words you speak when anger takes its toll, you may regret your actions once you’ve lost your self control.

When you’ve lost your temper and you’ve said some hurtful things, think about the heartache that your actions sometime bring.

You’ll never get those moments back, such precious time to waste, and all because of things you said in anger and in haste.

So if you’re loving someone and your pride has settled in, you may not ever have the chance to say to them again…

“I love you and I miss you and although we don’t agree, I’ll try to see your point of view, please do the same for me.” Author Unknown

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Elohim Ozer Li (Psalms 54:4) – GOD My Helper for blessing me the Holy Spirit to help me through difficult situations with those around me with grace, wisdom and respect. I greatly exalt You in the name of He who was always gracious with those around Him, Jesus Christ. Amen

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