Shows the Reality of What

 Faith shows the reality of what we hope for; it is the evidence of things we cannot see. Hebrews 11:1 The Holy Bible, The New Living Version

Faith means trust. Trust does not come naturally, it must be nurtured. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Even though Abraham had faith enough to leave His comfortable life it took Him years to truly have faith in Jehovah.

Why should it be any different for us?

It took me decades to have complete and total confidence in Jehovah. 

But, along the way it also took commitment to follow the Holy Spirits guidance even though most times I had no idea of where He was leading me and the work He had prepared for me. Most times, it was intellectually insane to go forth on this path. Especially, for someone like me, who has to always know the how’s, where’s, when’s and why’s before I take the first step.

“Faith, however, is not intellectual understanding; faith is a deliberate commitment to the person of Jesus Christ, even when I can’t see the way ahead.” Oswald Chambers

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Chris Melech Olam (Psalms 10:16 The LORD King Forever ) for blessing me with the honour of being Your loving, humble servant. Please bless me Holy Spirit to have the trust in my King and strong conviction of service unto Him to follow Him even when I do not know where He is leading me because I know that the ultimate destination is Your Heavenly home You have graciously prepared for my, Your adoring child.  I sincerely request this in His majestic name. 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

There are Two Important Steps in this Verse

voice of god

Through love and faithfulness sin is atoned for; through the fear of the Lord evil is avoided. Proverbs 16: 6 Holy Bible New Living Translation

There are two important steps in this verse.

The first part is that through our love for Jehovah we feel shame for our sin so we repent of it. Jehovah for His part then forgives us of that sin.

“The truth is, living in agreement with God will bring His conviction when we are disobedient. Conviction may feel like a negative thing, but it’s just as much a part of God as His smile. He is committed to making our lives work in Him, and He will use the strength and power of His conviction to let us know when we are outside His will. It may feel bad, but conviction is God at work in us.” — David Edwards

The second part is when we are obedient unto the Holy Spirits guidance He directs us away from places and things that would tempt us to sin. It does not mean we will be protected from evil because it is all around us and sometimes strikes us personally.

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Rohi ( Jesus is our Divine Shepherd )- Psalm 23 for blessing me with Your gracious forgiveness when I mess up and honestly repent. Thank you for sending the Holy Spirit to guide me along the road to Heaven You have chosen for me to take and for helping me to stay upon said road. I praise You in Your wise name. 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
