He Only Answers When Asked.

TRUST IN HIM

I sought the Lord, and He heard me, and delivered me from all my fearsPsalm 34:4 King James Version

The eternal God is your refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms.” Deuteronomy 33:27

When we are in trouble we need to seek Jehovah’s guidance, have faith in Him and obey Him in order for it to work.

When we approach Jehovah with a sincere heart in times of trouble with complete confidence He hears and answers our prayers he will answer.

I know there was one time when I was in a dangerous situation and saw no way out. I prayed to my beloved with fear but trust. He delivered me in an amazing way. As I felt His hand moving in the situation, a feeling of calm and confidence overwhelmed me. He delivered me in an unusual way but I had trust in Him.

 

It was when I was hiking along the coast during low tide on a trail that went for a long distance.

 

I did not understand about how high tides rose and fell.

I was trapped on a small island and felt the ocean was going to wash me away.

There was no civilization either way for about forty kilometers.

I felt moved to climb to the top and there was a little hole just big enough for me to climb through.

 

Even though there was a fierce storm with raging waves I was secure in my little cubby hole.

 

I was enveloped in a sense of peace and serenity and enjoyed the best nights sleep of the entire hiking trip.

 

He has done this numerous times in my walk with Him and He will with you as well.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Shammah (The Lord is present) for blessing me with walking with me through my numerous trials and tribulations, sorrows and snares.  I give thanks for this wonderful blessing in the name of He who was with His disciples through the storm Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

He will deliver you.

COMFORT IN HIS WORD

Do not say, “I’ll pay you back for this wrong!” Wait for the LORD, and he will deliver you. Proverbs 20:22 King James Version

Revenge is a stupid never ending circle of pain, destruction and sorrow. Joseph- Anthony: Green

I used to be the type of man that you never wanted to cross. Sometimes that meant that when I extracted my revenge for a perceived wrong an innocent would be hurt. Then the shame I felt was far greater that the satisfaction from the revenge.

It took a few years in my infancy walk with Christ to understand that the Lord delivers the best justice. After all who knows the offender better and how to administer truer justice you or Jehovah?

There were two instances when an employer cheated me and here was nothing I could do about it. A few months later boy did He deliver full justice and then some. I did not pray for the revenge nor particularly enjoyed it.

Now when someone does you wrong you are not to pray for fire and brimstone to be heaped upon the offenders heads. Instead pray that the Lord will bring them to repentance and there is resolution.

I believe what Jehovah will deliver you from is the fire and hatred that comes and consumes you when you want revenge.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Yeshua (God my deliverer) for delivering me from the vicious destructive cycle of revenge and freeing me to be Your loving child. I adore You in the name of He who did not seek revenge on the cross Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

You Shall Not Show Partiality.

You shall not show partiality in judgment; you shall hear the small as well as the great; you shall not be afraid in any man’s presence, for the judgment is God’s. The case that is too hard for you, bring to me, and I will hear it. Deuteronomy 1:17 New King James Version   Image

There is no rich or poor, beautiful or ugly, sexism, racism nor nationalism in Jehovahs eyes.                                                                                                                                            

He expects the same from us. We are not the judge, Christ is.                                                

Now that does not indicate that you are not to use discretion in relationships, business dealings or intimate confidences. We are not to be fools either.                                              

When a situation arises (and it will) when you do not know what to do, it is always best to take it to Jehovah in compete faith.                                                                                  

It is the same as when you are unjustly treated (and you will be) you are not to do something stupid but leave it in Jehovahs righteous hand. He will always see that proper justice is done. It may take years, it may take decades but no one will escape His divine judgment. I have personally seen when Jehovah has been patient and wise in trying to get offenders to repent, but His patience only lasts so long. Then He hands them over to their on wicked deeds and their reward. From my experience it is a slow painful journey into a living Hell. Because they are stiff necked their ultimate destination is a permanent residence in the real Hell.                                                                                                    

Prayer: please Jehovah Yeshua (God our deliverer) deliver me from being unfairly judgmental and bring those who have wronged me into repentance. If they are stiff necked and refuse to repent reward them in full for their vile deeds. I humbly request this in the name of He who saw those around Him as they truly were Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

The Best Refuge.

The Lord also will be a refuge for the oppressed. A refuge in times of trouble. Psalms 9:9 New King James Version

COMFORT IN HIS WORD

We are all oppressed from time to time. Maybe it is from co-workers, family, husband, wife or children or a bully.

If we depend upon ourselves to defend ourselves most times we will fail miserably. That usually is because our oppressors have
more experience than us. Sometimes it is even Satanic.
If on the other hand we depend upon God to deliver us, He will bless us with wisdom on how to handle the situation with wisdom, strength and grace.

Not only will we be relieved of the oppression but it will also give glory to God.

Prayer: Please Jehovah Yeshua (God our deliverer) rescue me from the vile wicked wolves that are always lurking looking for the
opportune time to attack. When they do attack please bless me with the wisdom, strength and grace to defeat them. I respectfully request this in the name of He who defeated Satan in the wilderness Jesus Christ. Amen.

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