Gratitude is Not Only

Know and fully recognize with gratitude that the Lord Himself is God; It is He who has made us, not we ourselves [and we are His]. Psalm 100:3Holy Bible, Amplified Version

Gratitude is described as acknowledgement of having received something good from another.

Yes we are to know that Jehovah made us and not being insulting idiots and believe that we are descended from monkeys. We are to recognize which means we are to have a clear understanding that we are a Divine creation.

To me that fills me with gratitude and meaning.

After all, how many folks go around and wonder why they are here?

I know why I am here. I was created to be blessed with a Divine loving relationship with our Heavenly Father. I am His and He is mine.

In gratitude I am obedient unto His direction in my life. This gives me Divine purpose.

Again, how many folks wonder what their purpose in life is.

I know mine.

It is to serve an amazing King.

For it is by grace [God’s remarkable compassion and favor drawing you to Christ] that you have been saved [actually delivered from judgment and given eternal life] through faith. And this [salvation] is not of yourselves [not through your own effort], but it is the [undeserved, gracious] gift of God; not as a result of [your] works [nor your attempts to keep the Law], so that no one will [be able to] boast or take credit in any way [for his salvation]. For we are His workmanship [His own master work, a work of art], created in Christ Jesus [reborn from above—spiritually transformed, renewed, ready to be used] for good works, which God prepared [for us] beforehand [taking paths which He set], so that we would walk in them [living the good life which He prearranged and made ready for us]. Ephesians 2:8-10 Holy Bible, Amplified Version

This leads me to a virtuous life.

Virtue means a conduct that conforms to an accepted standard of right and wrong.

Whose standard of what is right or wrong will you trust, Jehovahs or the worlds? Look around at the world and see if you want to live that type of life, I certainly do not.

Gratitude is not only the greatest of virtues, but the parent of all the others.” — Cicero

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Bara (The Lord Creator) for creating in my life a heart dedicated to nurturing a loving obedient live dedicated to You. I love You and praise You in the name of my Beloved brother in Your Heavenly family Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Must Mean Everything to Us.

Therefore I urge you,brothers and sisters, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies [dedicating all of yourselves, set apart] as a living sacrifice, holy and well-pleasing to God, which is your rational (logical, intelligent) act of worship.Romans 12:1 Holy  Bible Amplified Version

Most western Christians have it backwards. They falsely believe that Jesus is here to serve them. They only call on Him when they want something from Him whether it is to solve a problem or whether it is because they want something from Him. When He blesses them with their request they are rude and ungrateful and do not even thank Him.

That is not the Christian life.

The Christian live is to dedicate ones self to Christ in serving Him. His will is to always supersede theirs. We are to lay our desires upon the alter and to completely surrender to their will in their lives. After all we were created to do specific works He has prepared for us to do.

For we are His workmanship [His own master work, a work of art], created in Christ Jesus [reborn from above—spiritually transformed, renewed, ready to be used] for good works, which God prepared [for us] beforehand [taking paths which He set], so that we would walk in them [living the good life which He prearranged and made ready for us]. Ephesians 2:10 Holy  Bible Amplified Version

The Christian motto is to be: Christ first, others second, self last. Joseph a son of Jehovah

When others see our sacrificial works they will become intrigued and ask us why  we live such a life. This will be our greatest testimony and evangelism of all. We are to be a living testimony for Him.

Do not tell me of your Christ, show me Him in your life. Joseph a son of Jehovah

“Christianity must mean everything to us before it can mean anything to others.” — Donald Soper              

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Christ Helech ‘Olam (The Lord our King Forever) my eternal King for the supreme privilege of being Your humble servant. I praise You in Your magnificent name. Amen

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

I Am the Only Way.

 Jesus said to him, I am the [only] Way to God and the [real] Truth and the [real] Life; no one comes to the Father but through Me. John 14:6 Holy Bible Amplified Version

There is no negotiation with Jehovah.

I do not care what religion it is they all fall flat on their faces because they refuse to accept Christ as the Saviour and Heavenly King.

As for so the called Christian churches that preach the Santa Claus religion ( just as if you are a good boy or a good girl Santa Claus will bring you presents some so called Christian religions preach that it is by good works that you enter into Heaven. Both are fairy tales) they are living in a fools paradise. All their good works do not matter one iota on judgment day.

It is only by Christs blood, resurrection and our accepting His sacrifice and accepting Him as our saviour that we will be granted entrance into Heaven.

“God never negotiates with men. Jesus Christ’s death on the cross put an end to any kind of negotiations. It is now Christ or nothing. It is now God’s word in its entirety or nothing.” A.W. Tozer

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Helech ‘Olam (The Lord our King Forever) for blessing me with the wonderful privilege of being Your humble servant here on earth and eventually for eternity in the Heavenly home You have graciously prepared for me. I extol Thee in thy magnificent name. Amen

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

He Spreads the Snow.

WAIT UPON GOD

These articles are dedicated to the wonderful and amazing way Jehovah Jireh (the Lord our provider) answers prayers. It is a simple journal that I would like to use as an example for others to list their sincere prayer requests and then how our Beloved answers them.                                                                                                                                       It will amaze you and create a heart of gratitude and respect for our gracious Jehovah Heseh (Our God of love).

He spreads the snow like wool and scatters the frost like ashes. Psalm 147:16 New International Version                                                        

As there is a snow storm predicted for our area I prayed that we would not get the storm but rather a constant gentle snow flurry.                                                                               

Yesterday morning when I woke up there was a constant gentle snow flurry outside which has lasted all day.                                                                                                             

This morning I awoke to see huge snowdrifts outside. We were blessed with over a foot of snow last night.                                                                                                                              

I am sure the kids like it because of a snow day but I am even more sure it delighted the farmers even more.

As well we need it to replenish our streams and rivers.     

Another benefit is it will cover the roots so they do not get frozen and the plants like tree’s die like they did last year.                                      

Because last month there was a shortage of snow we need a good snowfall for our crops and to prevent soil erosion during these winter months.     

Finally because of the cold and snow it will kill harmful pests that lay eggs in tree’s.                                                  

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Nuah. (God who blesses with rest) for blessing us with just the right amount of snow to nourish and protect the land while not deluding us to make it treacherous for locals driving to worship You at church today. I humbly thank you in the name of He who nourished the crowd of three thousand Jesus Christ. Amen.                      

May the sunshine of Jesus sweet love bless you today and every day
