Change It to Me

DELIVERANCE COMES FROM THE LORD

 So we can say with confidence, “The Lord is my helper,  so I will have no fear.  What can mere people do to me?”Hebrews 13:6 Holy Bible New Living Translation.           

 Change it to me Instead of we we can say with confidence say I can say with confidence. Instead of saying what can man do to me say what can my boss do to me when I refuse to do something unethical?                                                       

What can the politically correct lie breals do to me when I stand up and speak the truth and refuse to cow tow to them?                                                           

What can the government do to me when I stand my Jesus’ solid rock when they are trying to abuse my God given rights?                                             

What can satan do to me when I stand firm and resist his temptation?

He is stronger than me but is he stronger than Jehovah? Because I am Jehovah’s child can he conquer me?

Satan is smarter than me but is he smarter than the Holy Spirit? Than because the Holy Spirit is my protector do you think satan can out con the Holy Spirit? Do you think the Holy Spirit will allow him to entrap me?    

Jehovah is the original super hero of which none can defeat. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Hoshe’ah ( The Lord Saves ) for saving me from the devil and his minions wicked schemes to destroy me. Thank you for providing the wisdom, grace and strength to defeat the wicked when they attack me. I exalt You in the name of the Warrior King whom shall one day defeat all wickedness 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

Here is the Two Part Equation

 I will search for faithful people to be my companions. Only those who are above reproach will be allowed to serve me. Psalm 101:6 The Holy Bible, the New Living Testament Version

Here is the two part equation: if we have no faith in Jehovah here, we are useless to Him here and now. The first step is to have faith in Him.

Oh so many times Jehovah calls upon us to take a step out into the known in faith in Him. It takes great faith to follow Jehovah because He sees where He is leading us while we do not. Joseph a son of Jehovah

In every advancement of my maturity in my walk with our Heavenly Beloved the above statement is exactly what happened. There was no consultation with our Heavenly King on what was going to happen, how it was going to happen, where it was going to happen or why it was going to happen. He just said go and I obediently went (not without a lot of apprehension mind you). When we first begin this journey into the unknown called faith we tightly grasp our loving Holy Spirits hands as He leads us into the unknown.

Our next step is to go in confidence.                                                                                          The further along this road He takes us the looser our grip on Him becomes as terror is replaced by excited apprehension into where He will lead us next. Our last stop of course will be at Heavens Gate where our Beloved King Jesus Christ will be waiting for us to place a crown on our heads as He declares in a loud voice for all the Heavens to hear:Well done good and faithful servant.

If you have no faith in the future, then you have no power in the present. Anonymous

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Pyyrand (Jesus my best friend) for the wonderful experience of sharing the closest of friendship with You whom I adore. It is the greatest of all privilege serving such a noble King as You. I exalt You in Your awesome 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

Thank Him For It And

 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 Holy Bible, New Living Translation

Do you truly have confidence in our Heavenly Father?

Then when you go to Him with a problem when you are finished talking with Him about it, thank Him for it and drop it. I do not mean to never mention it again but rather do not whine about it consistently to Jehovah. That is annoying when someone does that to me, I can only imagine how annoying it is to Jehovah when untold numbers of His children do it to Him.

For me, I mention it every morning to Him more as a way for me to remember it than to remind Him of it. Many times I tend to forget the problem (unless it is persistent or is a crisis) and then one day something happens and it pops into my mind that that is Jehovah answering my prayers in unusual and unique ways. It always makes me laugh and thank Him for His wonderful humour as well as His loving Providence.

For the rest of my life I am going to trust that Jehovah is always at work in all things and give Him thanks long before my simplest prayers are answered. Nancy Parker Brummet

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Shalom (The Lord blesses with Peace) for blessing me with peace every time I place my confidence in You, no matter how dire the situation. You are truly the most awesome Father of them all. I extol You in the name of He who placed His life in Your Divine hands with complete confidence, as I deeply desire to, all the way to the cross, Jesus Christ. Amen

May Christ bless you with love, joy and peace today and every day.

It is Impossible for a Christian

A STOUT HEART

This is why we work hard and continue to struggle, for our hope is in the living God. 1 Timothy 4:10 Holy Bible, New Living Translation

It is impossible for a Christian to give up. We all work hard at being acceptable children to our Heavenly Father.

Yes there are going to be constant struggles.

Christianity is one war that continues until we reach Heavens gate. Just when one battle is finished and we rest a little another one begins. So many times we feel exhausted and defeated. We desire to give it all up and walk away. But, as Christians when we go before our Heavenly Father, He blesses us with strength, wisdom and the weapons to continue the fight. The longer we are in this battle the stronger our hope is in our Heavenly Father.

Now hope here is not the same as hoping to win the lottery. Rather it means confidence in Our Heavenly Fathers care, provision and deliverance and the eternal Heavenly home He has prepared for us.

“God never promises to remove us from our struggles. He does promise, however, to change the way we look at them.” — Max Lucado

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ‘Ori (the Lord is my Light) for enlightening me with Divine insight into the reason for the constant battles that must be fought on a daily basis in every Christians life ( including mine). This gift encourages me on when all seems lost to victory which glorifies You. I joyously praise You in the name of He whose empty grave brought eternal victory to oh so many. Jesus Christ. Amen

May you be blessed with abundant joy in your heart filled with love and your life overflowing with laughter every day this year.

But by Subtraction

 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 Holy Bible, Amplified Version

The more you have, the less happy and contented you are. That is a proven fact.

Most folks are puppets in the hands of big monopolies. They say if you have this you will be happy. Then, they charge you exorbitant amounts of money to purchase their product. Because you cannot afford it, it puts you into debt. Then, next year they come out with a new and improved product and the process it repeated.

If it gets between you and Christ, get rid of it. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Going into debt and working long hours only to be exhausted keeps you away from Christ.

Live a simple life, you will be much more contented.

I speak from a lot of experience. I have always lived a simple, frugal lifestyle and for the most part am very contented. I see those I grew up with being very materialistic and are the most miserable folks you ever meet.

For me, my greatest joy, and satisfaction is when sharing a conversation with Jesus. It need not be about my problems (although there is nothing wrong with that but it is not to be the only time you talk with Him). Many times it is when we are walking in His creation (nature) that we just talk about anything and everything like the best friends we are. It is so enjoyable. He opens my eyes to all the beauty around me and how He loves me and takes care of me. I am contented with His daily provision in my life.

I have lived in abundance and in abject poverty but learning to depend upon and be grateful for Jehovahs daily provisions is one of the greatest lessons learned. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Now I do not worry about where my next meal is coming from nor hoard things. Now I do not foolishly waste His daily provisions but use them wisely as a manner in which to show proper respect and appreciation for my Fathers provisions.

“Contentment is not by addition but by subtraction: seeking to add a thing will not bring contentment. Instead, subtracting from your desires until you are satisfied only with Christ brings contentment.” Jeremiah Burroughs

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireh ( God provides ) for patiently teaching me that my wants will never bring me satisfaction but being content in Your daily provision brings a lot of contentment, peace, appreciation, respect and peace. Next to being blessed with loving communion with You, these are the greatest of gifts You daily bless me with. I am in deep gratitude to You in the name of Your greatest gift to me 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.

The Same Should be True for Us.

BURN LIKE THE SUN

 Don’t be so angry with us, Lord.  Isaiah 64:9 New Living Translation

This suggests that Jehovah controls His temper but look out when His patience is exhausted.

The same should be true for us.

Yes we are to control our temper but there must be a price to pay when someone exhausts our patience (many times they do it intentionally because they like to watch someone blow up and then stand back and laugh. All the while acting innocent.).

We as Christians are not to extract revenge. However, we do have a big daddy in Heaven above whom we can and should call upon to extract the proper punishment towards the offenders to either bring them to repentance or to warn them to stop because next time will be so much worse.

And, from my experience when the Lord brings the hammer down, it is very unpleasant to the offender.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Ghmolah (The God of Recompense. The God of vengeance) for blessing me with confidence in Your true justice being executed upon those who do me wrong without just cause. Thank You my Love that when we repent before Your patience is exhausted You are a forgiving God. I praise You in the name of He whose blood made my forgiveness possible Jesus Christ. Amen

May Christ bless you with love, joy and peace today and every day.

To You, O Lord

GODS DELIGHTS

 

To You, O Lord, I lift up my soul.
O my God, in You I [have unwavering] trust [and I rely on You with steadfast confidence],
Do not let me be ashamed
or my hope in You be disappointed;
Do not let my enemies triumph over me.
Indeed, none of those who [expectantly] wait for You will be ashamed;
Those who turn away from what is right
and deal treacherously without cause will be ashamed (humiliated, embarrassed). Let me know Your ways, O Lord; Teach me Your paths. Guide me in Your truth and teach me, For You are the God of my salvation; For You [and only You] I wait [expectantly] all the day long.
Remember, O Lord, Your [tender] compassion and Your loving kindnesses, For they have been from of old.
Do not remember the sins of my youth or my transgressions;
According to Your loving kindness remember me, For Your goodness’ sake, O Lord. Good and upright is the Lord;
Therefore He instructs sinners in the way. He leads the humble in justice, And He teaches the humble His way.
All the paths of the Lord are loving kindness and goodness and truth and faithfulness To those who keep His covenant and His testimonies.
For Your name’s sake, O Lord, Pardon my wickedness and my guilt, for they are great. Who is the man who fears the Lord [with awe-inspired reverence and worships Him with submissive wonder]? He will teach him [through His word] in the way he should choose. His soul will dwell in prosperity and goodness, And his descendants will inherit the land.
The secret [of the wise counsel] of the Lord is for those who fear Him, And He will let them know His covenant and reveal to them [through His word] its [deep, inner] meaning.
My eyes are continually toward the Lord, For He will bring my feet out of the net. Turn to me [Lord] and be gracious to me, For I am alone and afflicted. The troubles of my heart are multiplied; Bring me out of my distresses. Look upon my affliction and my trouble, And forgive all my sins.
Look upon my enemies, for they are many; They hate me with cruel and violent hatred. Guard my soul and rescue me; Do not let me be ashamed or disappointed, For I have taken refuge in You. Let integrity and uprightness protect me, For I wait [expectantly] for You. Psalm 25 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

This pretty much describes my attitude and behaviour towards my all knowing, all delivering, all encouraging, all loving all forgiving incredible Heavenly Father, Supreme King and Wise Teacher.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Heseh (God is love) for being so loving towards me in that You always supply me with the right amount of what I need, when I need it. You are so amazing. I exalt You in the great name of He who always supplied His disciples 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. May you be blessed with plentiful opportunities to share these with those around you today.
