What is your problem?

 Don’t be afraid, for I am with you. Don’t be discouraged, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you. I will hold you up with my victorious right hand. Isaiah 41:10
The Holy Bible New Living Translation

What is your problem?

Is it fear?

Believe me, I have been there more times than I can count. The majority of times it was for nothing.

Fear is a lack of trust in Jehovah. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Being mere mortals we will always have moments of fear.

The difference is that those of us who have walked with Christ long enough know enough to conquer that fear by immediately praying unto Jesus and having the confidence He will take care of it for us. That does not mean that we will just sit back on out buts and wait for Him to do all the work.

Faith means that sometimes we sit back and allow Jehovah to work His will through the problem with the belief that He will take care of it. It also means that we are willing to follow His commands, even though, many times we do not see nor understand what He is doing.

At first this was a terrifying experience for me. Now, I just laugh a wait to see just how unusual a way He will resolve the issue (and in my life it is always in unusual ways).

Are you discouraged?

Boy have I traveled down that road with that heavy load on my back.

Again at first it is difficult to have faith that Jehovah will lift us up. Sometimes He allows us to endure through the experience to build our character up.

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

Sometimes, He lovingly comforts, encourages and strengthens us to continue on. Jehovah is always there to help us in the best manner for victory over the challenges of life. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Tsuri (Psalms 19:14 O LORD My Strength) for blessing me with the strength to continue on when I feel as if there is nothing left in me to give. Thank you for Your powerful strength to carry me when I am too exhausted to continue on. I praise You in the name of He who had the strength to endure the horrors of the cross for me, 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

Jesus is My

 For since our friendship with God was restored by the death of his Son while we were still his enemies, we will certainly be saved through the life of his Son.  So now we can rejoice in our wonderful new relationship with God because our Lord Jesus Christ has made us friends of God. Romans 5:8-11 The Holy Bible New Living Translation

Jesus is my best friend as well as Jehovah They are the best friend anyone could ever have.

He is always there to talk with when problems arise (and because no one is wiser than Him, He always blesses us with the best advice).

He is there to comfort us when we are in sorrow, He understands because He experienced it here on earth when He walked among us.

He is there to warn us when danger lies ahead, He is better than any horoscope.

When someone tries to wage war against us, He is there to fight the battle for us or gives us the weapons to defeat our foes. He is there to share in our victories.

He is there to make us laugh, you have not really gotten to know Jesus until you have experienced His wonderful sense of humor.

He is there to share quiet times with us, those are the most special times for me.

The more we trust Jehovah the more we surrender to Him. The more we surrender to Him the deeper we fall in love with Him. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Pyrrand (God my best friend Romans 5:11) for blessing me with the best friend there could ever be. In the deepest gratitude I thank you in the name of my special friend 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

 Do Not Act Like

Do not act like the sinful people of the world. Let God change your life. First of all, let Him give you a new mind. Then you will know what God wants you to do. And the things you do will be good and pleasing and perfect. Romans 12:2 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

I remember when a young man they used to have movie critics that would rate whether movies were good or bad. From my experience when I listened to them and paid good money to watch the film, it was a horrible film. The films they panned were the ones I enjoyed watching.

I remember talking with work mates about new series that came out on TV. Even though they did not like the shows they watched them because they wanted to be with the in crowd.

LAUGH AT FOOLS

However, I consider them to be cattle just being led by the puppets of big business and foolishly wasting their money to stay cool all the while becoming slaves to the bank by going deeply in debt. None of them look to happy to me.

Now, following the advice Jehovah has blessed me with in the Bible has brought me a lot of wisdom, peace, comfort, strength, integrity and joy. Many believe I am weird for living the Christian lifestyle.

HE GIVES ABUNDANTLY

I listen to Jesus rather than man because He only wants what is best for me and has the knowledge to guide me on how to attain it. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah El Deah (God of knowledge. Romans 11:33) for blessing me with Your supreme knowledge for every aspect of my life. You have prevented a lot of tragedy in my life as well as have blessed me with living a meaningful life. I thank You in the name of the best Guidance Councillor 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

Why We Need To.

 All the Holy Writings are God-given and are made alive by Him. Man is helped when he is taught God’s Word. It shows what is wrong. It changes the way of a man’s life. It shows him how to be right with God. It gives the man who belongs to God everything he needs to work well for Him. 2 Timothy 3:16-17 The Holy Bible, The New Life Version

GODS GUIDEBOOK

This is why we need to remember the Bible: The Bible is Jehovahs word. It is how He speaks to us.

It is like poppa directing every aspect of our lives to be children worthy to be called His treasured children.

Remember the things of long ago. For I am God, and there is no other. I am God, and there is no one like Me. Isaiah 46:9 The Holy Bible, The New Life Version

Reading the Bible every day reminds us of how Jehovah was faithful to those who belong to Him in the past. With this knowledge we are confident He will always be faithful to us.

Now for those of us that walked with Him for a while we need to recollect how He has been faithful in the past in our lives and share these encouraging events with those who are weak and new to the Walk.

When He had given thanks, He broke it and said,“Take this bread and eat it. This is My body which is broken for you. Do this to remember Me.” 1 Corinthians 11:24 The Holy Bible, The New Life Version

Reading of Christ’s crucifixion should bring tears to our eyes. Tears of gratitude for such an amazing sacrifice on our behalf. We should be thanking Him every single day. We also need to thank Him that because of His resurrection, we have been resurrected from the physical to the Heavenly Spiritual. We have been changed from suffering in the world which only leads to death to the glorious eternal communion with the Heavenly trinity which has prepared an awesome home for us.

“Can a woman forget her nursing child? Can she have no pity on the son to whom she gave birth? Even these may forget, but I will not forget you. See, I have marked your names on My hands. Your walls are always before Me. Isaiah 49:15-16 The Holy Bible, The New Life Version

Reading the Bible helps us remember that no matter how terrifying the storms or dark the day, He has not forgotten us. Indeed, He is walking with us through it all. Reading the Bible every day helps us to have confidence that Jehovah is using these experiences to mould us to be the holy children He created us to be.

The Helper is the Holy Spirit. The Father will send Him in My place. He will teach you everything and help you remember everything I have told you. John 14:26 The Holy Bible, The New Life Version

Reading the Bible helps us remember that we have a Divine Helper who loves us and only wants what is best for us, we need only be attentive and obedient unto His voice.

Again, as we mature in the Walk, we become metamorphosed with the Holy Spirit. He is as much a part of us as our heart or lungs. We need to use these experiences to comfort and encourage those that are not as mature as us.

Your Word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path. Psalm 119:105 The Holy Bible, The New Life Version

We live in a very dark world, how else are we to follow the light to our Heavenly home without reading the words that come from the Light to Heaven every day. Joseph a son of Jehovah

follow your ways

Prayer: I thank You Jehovah El Emeth (Psalms 31:5 LORD GOD of Truth) for blessing me with the most nutritious breakfast, snack through out the day and bed time snack before laying down to sleep, Your Holy Word, the Bible. It nourishes my mental, physical and spiritual well being as well as helps me continue to grow into the beautiful child You intend for me to be. I praise You in the name of He who always provided the best feast for His disciples, Jesus Christ. Amen

Whatever is beautiful, whatever is meaningful, whatever brings you joy, may you be blessed with an abundance of it this every day this year. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Come and See

 Come and see what our God has done, what awesome miracles he performs for people! Psalm 66:5 Holy Bible, New Living Translation

Many of us who dedicate our lives to serving our Heavenly King are living hand to mouth. We are living comfortably but far from extravagantly. By the worlds standards we have no pension fund and will be left in abject poverty upon retirement.

Do not believe this lie by satan to discourage you, good servant.

The Master of the Universe loves you and has promised to take care of His cherished friends, who are also His free will servants. He will provide for us in miraculous ways to prove to all He takes care of His own. The same cannot be said of those tumbling around in the darkness.

FULLFILLED DESIRES

Jesus has the best pension fund in the universe for His loyal servants. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah El Gemuwal (Jeremiah 51:56 The LORD GOD of Recompenses) for blessing me with Your guarantee that I shall be compensated seven times more than that which I have given to You in my dedication to You in my daily life and in my service unto You.                                  Thank you that these rewards shall be given both here in this world and so much more in the Heavenly home You have graciously prepared for those in Your service.                                                                      I exalt You in the name of He with whom I am honoured to serve in a life time of dedication,our majestic King Jesus Christ. Amen

May love be in your life, may hope be in your heart and may peace be in your every day walk with Christ. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Do Have Powerful Effects on Others.

 For just as the heavens are higher than the earth, so my ways are higher than your ways and my thoughts higher than your thoughts. Isaiah 55:9 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

I thought this, He has that planned.

One day I felt a strong desire to go to a photo shop and have a lot of positive affirmation cards made out using my photo’s and Bible verses added into them. It was assumed that they would be read every morning to get me off to a positive start to the day.

A few weeks after they had been printed the corona virus hit. At the same time some members of moms church began going through some very difficult times as well as facing the loneliness of isolation.

I convinced mom to drive me to their dwelling place (I have never had a drivers licence) and I would place the card in their mail boxes. Mom added a little gift like a box of chocolates.

After reading the card and the accompanying poem I wrote they called up mom just bawling uncontrollably. Thanking her. The cards gave them a lot of comfort and encouragement.

We did the same for shut in seniors that could not get out shopping (there are huge line ups at all the grocery stores so I would go do their shopping for them while mom sat in the vehicle (her health will not allow her to stand for a hour in the line up).

Now is the time for brothers and sisters in Christs holy family to come together and help each other.

I have gotten mom to make a list and call members of her church every day and just talk with them. Now other members are calling each other and encouraging each other following moms lead. It has a incredible effect on bother the callers and the receivers. This makes us stronger and more united. Those shut ins (especially those in seniors homes where visitors are not allowed and they are confined to their rooms) really appreciate it.

TAKING IT TO OTHERS

Even the simplest acts of love can and do have powerful effects on others. Especially in these difficult frightening times. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you El Marom (Micah 6:6 GOD Most High ) for blessing me with Your guiding hand using Your wisdom which constantly amazes me. I am honoured my Love that You have used me in such a wonderful manner.                                                                                                                                           May many reading this be blessed to follow suit.                                                                                           I give thank and ask in the name of He who constantly confused the wise in His walk on this planet, Jesus Christ. Amen

The gift of love, the gift of joy, the gift of peace, these are the greatest gifts that can be given. They are given in abundance to all those in Christs family by our Heavenly loving  Father to be shared with others. May you be blessed with plentiful opportunities to share these with those around you today. Joseph a son of Jehovah

The same cannot be said of those tumbling around in the darkness.

Prayer: Thank you oh my gracious and generous Jehovah Jireh ( God provides ) Philippians 4:19 for always supplying for this adoring child of Yours through out my life and for providing me with a magnificent home You have lovingly provided for me in Heaven. I thank you in the name of my beloved big brother I look forward to guiding through that home when I arrive there, Jesus Christ. Amen

The Best Peace Treaty

  Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:7 Holy Bible New Living Translation

The best peace treaty there can ever be is the one between you and Jehovah.    

The only way to accomplish this is to surrender your will to His. We are to do as He suggests. Jehovah is too honorable to demand, He is respectful and asks. We refuse to obey at our own peril.  When we surrender our all to Him, He will bless us with peace, comfort, security and assurance.               

OBEY GODS WORD                                        

 Going our own way or going with the crowd only condemns you to a life of confusion, depression, worry, anger and fear.             

 “Being at peace with yourself is a direct result of finding peace with God.”  Olin Miller

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Shalom (the God of Peace) for blessing me with Your Heavenly Divine peace which no other can compare. I exalt You in the highest in the name of the Prince of Peace 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

Do You Give it Back?

CHRISTIAN DEVOTION

 “Blessed be God . . ., who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God” (2 Corinthians 1:3,4). The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation.

Those of us who have been around the bush long enough have been through the meat grinder once or twice haven’t we. In those times of tribulation hasn’t God comforted you and encouraged you?

Hasn’t He in His divine love healed you?

So, where is your gratitude?

When someone does something nice for you, shouldn’t you return the favor?

When you see someone suffering shouldn’t you go to them and emulate what God did for you?

You know, the most painful and horrible experience in my life was being in an abusive relationship and the healing that took place afterwards.

In my teaching days I witnessed a lot of hurt and pain because of students being in an abusive situation. It broke my heart. I would sit them down and share my experience with them. Because I had walked that mile in their shoes they listened to me. In the end it helped guide many of them to Jesus.

Please for the love of Christ and your fellow men, when you see someone suffering reach  out to them.

Not only can it be a comforting and encouraging experience to them, it can also be an opportunity to share Jesus with them. This in turn may help bring them into our Holy family.

If you are experiencing a time of great difficulty and or pain and are reading this, take heart. God is not stupid. Perhaps He is allowing this experience to train you to help others in the future.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Uzam (The Lord is our Strength in Trouble) – Is 49:26 for blessing me with Your strength, comfort and encouragement when I endured the fiery times of trouble, anguish and confusion. Please bless me with the opportunity to pay it forward to someone who is experiencing the fire storms of life to help them and to guide them to the greatest Strengthener of all, You. In the name of He who was strong enough to endure the agony of the cross for His love of me, Jesus Christ I humbly ask. 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

Do You Give Honey or Do You Shoot Arrows?

 

WORDS HEAL IN LOVE A gentle answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger. Proverbs 15:1, New International Version

Please, always remember this verse. Write it down and keep it with you.

Do you speak words of encouragement when others are enduring difficult times? Or, do you pour hot burning colas of pain on others?

Which words do you use?

Do you comfort them and encourage them or do you criticize them and mock them?

Do you always try to say something positive to people or do you take every opportunity to cruelly mock them?

Remember this as well:” What goes around comes around.”

How you behave with others will be done back to you at sometime.

I personally prefer to uplift and encourage others. In doing so I am following in the footsteps of my beloved Jesus.

God does not comfort us to make us comfortable, but to make us comforters. J. H. Jowett

Prayer: Please oh Jehovah Shalom (God of our peace) guide my words that they may be healing and soothing to all I encounter today. In the name of the sweetest orator Jesus Christ we pray. 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
