Sound Judgment and Discipline.

 For God did not give us a spirit of timidity or cowardice or fear, but [He has given us a spirit] of power and of love and of sound judgment and personal discipline [abilities that result in a calm, well-balanced mind and self-control]. 2 Timothy 1:7 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Notice it says sound judgment and discipline.

How are we to receive these daily Heavenly necessities in our lives?

Sound judgment can only be achieved through constant tutorship of the Holy Spirit and obedience unto our Divine Teacher. The more we listen and obey the more He will bless us with Divine wisdom in every aspect of our lives.

Think of it like going to school.

You must learn the instruction from your grade one teacher before you graduate to grade two. Now for those of us that are old enough, reflect how much you have progressed in knowledge since grade one.

So too it is with the Holy Spirits school of Divine life.

We must start out small with baby steps in our early walk and then sometimes slowly and sometimes in leaps and bounds walk towards Heaven in the knowledge and wisdom of Heavenly citizenship. Joseph son of Jehovah.

Discipline is incorporating what we have learned in the Holy Spirits Divine school into our daily lives. Joseph son of Jehovah. The metamorphosis that occurs in us is the amazing abilities that result in a calm, well-balanced mind and self-control

Prayer: Thank you Holy Spirit Rabbi (God our Teacher) for blessing this difficult student with Your Divine wisdom, You amazing patience and Your ultimate strength to become the child my Beloved Heavenly Father desires me to be. Thank You for gently nagging me to discipline Your lessons into my daily life. I praise You in the name of the greatest Teacher Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Notice it Says Continually.

 

Seek the Lord and His strength; Seek His face continually [longing to be in His presence]. 1 Chronicles 16:11 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Notice it says continually.

Have you ever seen a chicken after its head has been chopped off ( those who grew up on a farm fifty years ago know what I am referring to, sorry if it offends you city slickers) ? The chickens body flows and runs all around the place for a minute or two.

How many of us do this when unexpected problems or catastrophes slam into us?

I know in my early walk with Christ this occurred many times at the slightest incident. Now when the event first occurs there is the initial shock and worry but I do as the Holy Spirit has trained me to do over many decades: I take it to the Lord in prayer and trust His providence to see me through, that is what faith is. This only becomes second nature because of continuous daily communion with Him.

He Divinely guides most of my every moves. I say most because there are moments in all of our lives where we surrender to selfish fleshly desires.

He always provides me with strength to accomplish the daily tasks He assigns us and yes He does assign us daily tasks as every King does his servants.

Just as Christ is our Heavenly King, so too are we His earthly servants. Joseph son of Jehovah.

The more we experience this the stronger our trust in Him to provide for and protect us in our disasters.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ‘Immeku (The Lord Is With You) for blessing me continuously with Your wonderful presence every moment of my life. I cherish our communion together. Thank you for walking with me through the many trials and tribulations experienced in my walk with You and for walking with me through my crucifixion, being put through the furnace to burn off the dross. I know these event were necessary and that they would have been impossible to accomplish if You were not there with me. I exalt You in the name of He who blessed all He spent time with as He walked amongst us Jesus CHRIST. Amen.

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

Firm and Unchangeable.

 

 Forever, O Lord, Your word is settled in heaven [standing firm and unchangeable]. Psalm 119:89 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Jehovahs word has stood the test of time.

Most other religions have faded into history or been renovated to accommodate the times.

Jehovahs word is firm and unchangeable in every society.

Psychological thought for society has changed throughout history.

Jehovahs never changes and is always true.

If you desire wisdom in every aspect of you life turn to the only book that is the Divine truth and the epitome of Wisdom that has stood unchangeable and firm for eons. It is called The Holy Bible.

Why not ask Jehovah to reveal its treasures to you and see the amazing results in your life.

It still amazes me every day with its wisdom.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ‘Ori (the Lord is my Light) for consistently enlightening me to the amazing treasures in Your awesome Book of Wisdom ( the Holy Bible). I praise You in the name of the wisest teacher of all 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.

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.

Which One Comes From You?

  And not only this, but [with joy] let us exult in our sufferings and rejoice in our hardships, knowing that hardship (distress, pressure, trouble) produces patient endurance;  and endurance, proven character (spiritual maturity); and proven character, hope and confident assurance [of eternal salvation]. Romans 5:3-4 Holy Bible Amplified Version

When Jehovah assigns as difficult task for you to do are you obstinate, stomp your feet and say I refuse like a spoiled little brat? Even though He reasons with you with His Word, Christian Councilors and signs.

Or, if He directs you to stop doing something do you obstinacy refuse?

Beware.

Jehovah only does what is for your good. So, if you refuse to listen to Him, you will pay greatly in the long run.

I have seen many obstinate folks refuse to listen and slowly sink deeper and deeper into a living Hell.

“The difference between perseverance and obstinacy is that one often comes from a strong will, and the other from a strong won’t.” — Henry Ward Beecher

Perseverance means a continued effort to do or achieve something despite difficulties, failure, or opposition.

Obstinacy mean to be sticking to an opinion, purpose, or course of action in spite of reason, arguments, or persuasion.

If on the other hand you obey Him you will learn to wait upon His time to mold you into the child He desire you to be. Through our hardships we become stronger in our trust in Him to see us through them and burn off the dross to become pure children of Jehovah. This will mold us into Holy children of Jehovah and be assured of our salvation. Do not think this is a one off experience. It takes years, even decades for Jehovah to accomplish His desire in you His beloved child.

That is why us older children need to come along side of the younger ones to strengthen them with our witness.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ‘Immeku (The Lord Is With You) for being with me to guide me and strengthen me as You mold me into the child You desire for me to be. I exalt You in the name of He whose strength helped Him endure the horrible cross Jesus Christ. Amen

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

How is Your Spiritual Training Going?

 For physical training is of some value, but godliness (spiritual training) is of value in everything and in every way, since it holds promise for the present life and for the life to come. 1 Timothy 4:8 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

How is your spiritual training going?

If a long distance runner does not practice almost every day he is not able to compete. If instead of practicing and listening to his coaches he spends his time at the bar drinking beer there is no way he can compete in any race and there is certainly no way he will finish it. Everybody watching him will laugh at him.

So too it is with the Christian race.

We need to train every day to get stronger. We train by at the beginning of every day praying.

Praying consists of three parts: To begin with we thank Jehovah for all the blessing He has bestowed upon us both big and small while apologizing for the sins we have committed both big and small.

The second part is to pray for Jehovahs will to be done in our daily lives not our own and for help to accomplish this.

The third part is to be praying for others. Joseph- Anthony: Green

The next part is asking Jehovah to bless us with wisdom while reading His instruction manual for this race, it is called the Bible and obeying what He reveals for us (write it down to contemplate upon it through out the day).

Finally we need to pray that Jehovah blesses us with Godly wise men and women to be our mentors to teach and encourage us in this race ( of course that means we are to be mentors to those who are not as progressed in the race as we are).

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ‘Immeku (The Lord Is With You) for always being with me a listening when I approach You in prayer. I am humbled that one as great as You desires to listen to me and talk with me through constant prayer. I exalt You in the name of He who taught us the best way to pray Jesus Christ. Amen

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