Submits To and Delights In

CHRIST'S PEACE

 But godliness actually is a source of great gain when accompanied by contentment [that contentment which comes from a sense of inner confidence based on the sufficiency of God]. 1 Timothy 6:6 The Holy Bible Amplified Version 

Godliness means to live a life that Jehovah has directed us to live. When we do so we have a great source of contentment.

We are grateful and content with the daily blessings Jehovah showers upon us instead of worrying that we do not have enough life those of the world.

We are secure and contentment that we have a loving caring Heavenly Father that will always take care of us so we do not need to worry about losing a job or getting a sickness.

We sleep contentedly and peacefully at night knowing that we are in His loving tender care instead of suffering insomnia unnecessarily worrying about things we have no control over to begin with.

We need not worry about what is going to happen in life like those in the world because we know when we submit unto our Heavenly Father, He will always walk with us in the path He has chosen for us to take in this life.

“Christian contentment is that sweet, inward, quiet, gracious frame of spirit, which freely submits to and delights in God’s wise and fatherly disposal in every condition.” — Jeremiah Burroughs

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireh ( God provides ) for faithfully providing for me in all manner of my life. It has blessed me with a Heavenly contentment which only You can provide. I exalt You in the name of He who always provided for His disciples as He walked with them Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

The Godly Are Bettered By

WE ARE PURIFIED

Through Him we also have access by faith into this [remarkable state of] grace in which we [firmly and safely and securely] stand. Let us rejoice in our hope and the confident assurance of [experiencing and enjoying] the glory of [our great] God [the manifestation of His excellence and power]. 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 5:2-4 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

It is in the hard times we learn the most and mature the most as we are guided by the Holy Spirit. We do not become bitter and self pitying like those in the world. Rather, we rejoice in them afterwards because we can see Jehovahs strong, secure hand leading us through them.

It is in our sufferings that Jehovah reveals the most of His love and healing which draws us ever closer to Him which is the only way for that to occur. We do not pout and play the blame game like those in the world because we understand that it occurred for our betterment.

Each of these brings stronger confidence in our loving Heavenly Fathers providence in every part of our lives. Because we are His children we always have access to Him and He is never too busy for us but takes an active role in our lives.

For these blessings we should continually praise Him and rejoice over Him continually every day.

When we know that the angel of death shall come a calling (and I believe that Jehovah always alerts us that our time will soon be up, even though we do not know the hour or the day. This is because of what has been witnessed in the palliative care in hospitals and volunteering in seniors homes) Jehovah shall cause us to reflect back on our walk with Him and blesses us with assurance of the Heavenly home that is awaiting us.

As the wicked are hurt by the best things, so the godly are bettered by the worst.” — William Jenkyn

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ‘Uzam (The Lord is our Strength in Trouble) for strengthening me, comforting me and encouraging me through lo the many trials, tribulations and sorrows that have come my way in my walk with You. I would never had made it without You gentle strong hand supporting me. I praise You in the name of He who strengthened the weak as He walked amongst us 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

Succeed in This Inconceivable Marvel.

God loves each of

 For ever since the creation of the world His invisible attributes, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood through His workmanship [all His creation, the wonderful things that He has made], so that they [who fail to believe and trust in Him] are without excuse and without defense. Romans 1:20 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Have you ever seen anyone that has been touched by Jehovah?

I have.

I have seen drunkards become sober and never touch a drop again. Everything else they attempted to smash the chains of their addiction failed miserably, especially the politically correct that says if you just try hard enough you will succeed. Only Christs power freed them from this horrible slavery. The same can be said of other addictions as well.

I have seen those who were selfish and self centered become very loving, sharing and caring children of Jehovah. Nothing but Christs love could accomplish such a feat.

I have seen shy timid folks become roaring lions for Christ with Divine power and and confidence that astounds those that knew them previously. Nothing but Jehovahs power could accomplish such an impossible feat.

I have seen those that cursed and mocked Jehovahs word now preach it with wisdom and authority that amazes those that knew them previously. Nothing but Jehovahs wisdom could succeed in this inconceivable marvel.

“I believe in God like I believe in the sun rise. Not because I can see it, but because I can see all that it touches.” — C. S. Lewis

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Shammah ( The Lord is Present) for the numerous ways in which You have touched me in so many aspects of my life. In the way You burned off the dross and the ways in which You have molded me with expert hands. I exalt You in the name of the best potter ever  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

It is Accomplished Through.

trust in God

 Now faith is the assurance (title deed, confirmation) of things hoped for (divinely guaranteed), and the evidence of things not seen [the conviction of their reality—faith comprehends as fact what cannot be experienced by the physical senses]. For by this [kind of] faith the men of old gained [divine] approval. By faith [that is, with an inherent trust and enduring confidence in the power, wisdom and goodness of God] we understand that the worlds (universe, ages) were framed and created [formed, put in order, and equipped for their intended purpose] by the word of God, so that what is seen was not made out of things which are visible. Hebrews 11:1-3 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Faith is not something that is instantly instilled in us when we become Christians. It is only accomplished through a lot of failure. We all fall face down in our walk with Christ.

Satan is a master at instilling doubts which is the murderer of faith.

When we fail the Holy Spirit gently picks us up and teaches us again to have faith. Then when the tempter comes again we are stronger to resist his wicked wiles. It is accomplished through a lot of experience. When our faith is tested, we need to reflect back on Jehovahs deliverance, strength, guidance and resources to achieve complete and total victory.

That is why we need not only to be patient with baby Christians but to use our experiences to encourage them. It is accomplished through a personal experience with the Holy Trinity.

Finally, there of course, can be no victory without a loving obedient relationship with the supreme power of all faith Jehovah, Jesus and the Holy Spirit. It is only through their blessing that have triumphant and powerful faith.

“I am inwardly fashioned for faith, not for fear.  Fear is not my native land; faith is.  I am so made that worry and anxiety are sand in the machinery of life; faith is the oil….  A Johns Hopkins University doctor says, ‘We do not know why it is that worriers die sooner than non-worriers, but that is a fact.’  But I who am simple of mind think I know;  We are inwardly constructed…for faith and not for fear.  God made us that way.  To live by worry is to live against reality.”Dr. Stanley Jones

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah El Roi (You are the God who sees) for blessing me that You see everything in advance so know the best path for me to take in life even when it does not make sense to me at the time. I exalt You in the name of He whose light guides me unto Heavens gate Jesus Christ. Amen

May Gods sunshine always bless you with brightening your day with His love, joy and peace. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Did They Not Have Every Right To

trust in God

 Jesus said to them, “Why are you afraid? Do you still have no faith and confidence [in Me]?” Mark 4:40 Holy Bible, Amplified Version

The boat was sinking during a terrible storm. The disciples, who were experienced fishermen believed they were going to die. Did they not have every right to be concerned?

No, they did not.

When Jesus asked the disciples do you still, this implies that they had plenty of experience with Jesus during disasters.

Have they not learned their lessons yet?

Before you are harsh on them, reflect back on your own life. When you were a baby Christian with little experience, you were expected to have little faith and trust, however, as you mature in your walk with Christ your faith is expected to become stronger.

For me, whenever disaster comes my way the initial reaction is panic. It is quickly followed by crying out unto Jehovah. Then their is reflection upon His past deliverance and a thankful prayer saying with confidence I know it is in Your hands Father and I know You will help me. Thank You.

Then their is calm reassurance during the wicked storms.

We are expected to call out unto Jehovah but we are also expected to have trust in His deliverance. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Shammah ( The Lord is Present) for always being present in my life.

Please expand my trust in You in every trial and tribulation You are right there walking through them with me.

Please remind me of Your past deliverance to reassure me of Your present one.

I praise You and sincerely request this in the name of He who always walked and continuously walks with You now my glorious best friend Jesus Christ. Amen

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

To Surrender is Brave

God’s program of instruction which is grounded in faith [and requires surrendering the entire self to God in absolute trust and confidence].1 Timothy 1:4 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

 I surrender to Jehovah completely. He does not accept anything else. That is the reason I love that song:”I surrender all”. It is one of the anthems of my life.

It has taken me decades to learn to trust Jehovah in every aspect of my life.

There has been so many times He has asked (Jehovah never demands anything of His children. He is too much of a gentleman to do that) to do things that seemed totally absurd to me. When I surrendered my will unto His, He accomplished amazing things in my life and through my life.

There were so many times I was completely convinced in a certain course of action but He asked me not to take it. It seemed insane not to disobey Him and go my own way using my limited wisdom. Indeed many mocked me for obeying a make believe God in the sky. In retrospect I am glad to have obeyed Him because those that did take that way ended up in total disaster.

Surrender is not an act of bravery but an act of trust and love unto He who loves us so much more that we could ever love Him back.

My life is a testimony that He never leads us the wrong way nor does not warn us of the wrong trail to travel down in life. He has a one hundred percent success rate. Now that is the type of adviser I wisely listen to and obey.

“Surrender is deeply misunderstood as an act of weakness. Surrender is the bravest and most lucid thing a human ever does, and that’s why it’s so precious to the Divine.” -Andrew Harvey 

Prayer: I surrender body, spirit and mind totally unto You Jesus Rohi ( Jesus is our Divine Shepherd ) as the only voice I shall follow in every aspect of my life. This is done in the knowledge that because You love me You only desire what is best for me. Because You are the wisest of all, You know what is best for me. In humbly surrender unto You my Beloved Heavenly King I do make this pledge. Amen

May Gods sunshine always bless you with brightening your day with His love, joy and peace. Joseph a son of Jehovah

The Power to Overcome.

                                        

I have told you these things, so that in Me you may have [perfect] peace. In the world you have tribulation and distress and suffering, but be courageous [be confident, be undaunted, be filled with joy]; I have overcome the world.” [My conquest is accomplished, My victory abiding.] John 16:33 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

The closer we walk with Christ the more the devil will attack us to destroy our loving relationship with Christ. He knows he is going to Hell and wants all the company he can get. Besides, the devil is proud so it irks him to no end to see the righteous worshiping Christ instead of him. Do not worry, Christ defeated satan on the cross and on resurrection day. He is strong enough to help you defeat the wimp satan.

Then there is society.

In todays world the motto is: if it feel s good do it. In the Christian world it says if we love others first we will be filled with love and joy. This convicts those in the world and they will viciously attack us. Do not worry Christ will fill our hearts with peace which will infuriate the world ever more.

The world says: If you just try hard enough you can do whatever you want to do. Christ says we are made to serve Him and allow Him to make the choices in our lives. This convicts the world and so they hate us and cruelly attack us. Do not worry, our Heavenly warrior King provided the tools to defeat them.

On our earthly journey we will always find stiff resistance but God blesses us with the power to overcome. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Hoshe’ah ( The Lord Saves ) for blessing me with Your awesome strength, wisdom, provision and protection against the weakling satan and from the superficial attacks by those stumbling about in the dark world.

I extol Thee in the name of He who is the light of the world 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
