We Are Not to Be

A good man deals graciously and lends; He will guide his affairs with discretion. Psalms 112:5 The Holy Bible, The New King James Version

Discretion the quality of having or showing discernment or good judgment. Merriam Webster Dictionary

Yes, we are to lend in the appropriate way in the appropriate time. We are not to be suckers.

The first time you bail someone out that is mercy. The second time is abuse. Bailing out the second time prevents them from maturing by taking consequences for thier actions. Joseph a son of Jehovah

“Maturity is not based on age, but on the willingness to accept responsibility.”Dr. Edwin Louis Cole

Now how are we to gain wisdom to make good judgement?

Of course we go to The Answer Man, He knows everything.

And who is this Answer Man?

The wisest of all, Jehovah. He knows everything.

And how do we know His answer for us?

“Faith does not eliminate questions. But faith knows where to take them.” -Elisabeth Elliot

A wise man waits and pray for three days as well as reads his Bible. Jehovah always answers those who have faith in Him, which means to trust Him.

We must also be patient because Jehovah answers in His time, In His way.

I depend upon You, Holy Spirit to help me set Godly boundaries in my relationships. I depend upon You to guide me in the proper use of these skills to nurture loving relationships while purging myself of toxic folks who only bring unnecessary drama and chaos to my life.

Prayer: Please Jehovah El Deah ( God of knowledge. Romans 11:33 ) guide me to share my time, talents, and gifts wherever and whenever You direct me to so as to bring You glory and honour. And, to bring the little lost sheep to You. Please protect me from the abusive wolves who only want to make a sucker out of me. I humbly ask this in the name of He who gave His life for mine, Jesus Christ. Amen .

I love to share the events in my life where Jehovah, Jesus and they Holy Spirit have touched me. How can I not. They were life changing. Joseph a son of Jehovah

I am Here Today With

Pray with me: “My Beloved Poppa, I am here today with open hands and an open heart, ready to depend on You to help me through this day and all it will bring my way.

Help me be like Nehemiah, help me come to You for guidance, strength, provision and protection.

As I face tough choices and hard situations, help me remember to come unto You my Beloved for guidance and strength to do the right this, help me remember that I am Your child and Your representative to the world around me.

Help me live today in a way that brings honor to Your holy name.

In Jesus’ name I humbly request this, Amen.”

May Jehovahs rays of Divine love shine brightly upon you today and every day. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Leave It in His Hands.

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 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Being independent is satans trick to get us to plunge ourselves into painful failures and distance ourselves from Jehovah Joseph a son of Jehovah

In my infancy in Jehovahs family it was exceedingly difficult to trust in Jehovah and leave it in His hands. It is inherent in the fleshly family to be fiercely independent, which of course leads to many unnecessary disasters and hard times. It took many years and suffering to finally surrender it all to Him.

Even now, even though I know this is the right thing to do , sometimes it takes great battles to surrender my will to His.

There is great battle, which the weapons of Christ is memorizing Bible verses and intense prayer. These are guaranteed to bring victory to the soul, mind and spirit of every Christian.

When You give your problem unto Jehovah, leave it in His hands. Trust Him that He will do what is right, not what you want.

There is no sense in asking Him for His advice if you insist on not waiting for Him but going out and doing what you think is right. That always leads to disaster. Joseph a son of Jehovah

The other problem with depending upon yourself is that it lulls you into the false sense of security in your own intellect and physical prowess. This causes us to refuse to include Jehovah in our daily living. This only leads to catastrophe.

Self achievement brings a false sense of assurance that somehow we can live a pure life in our own ability. This attitude ultimately leads us to cut ourselves off from the heart of God and, in turn, to deny our true identity in Christ.” David Edwards

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah for blessing me with sending me The Holy Spirit Elohim Ozer Li (Psalms 54:4 GOD My Helper) to help guide me along the trail of life You have chosen for me to travel. May it always glorify Your name and help guide others along the path You have chosen for them to travel. I praise You in the name of He who obeyed You all the way to the path that lead to Calvary Jesus Christ. Amen

May Gods sunshine always bless you with brightening your day along the path He has chosen for you to walk with His love, joy and peace. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Today and Every Day.

Oh my Beloved El Emunah (Deuteronomy 7:9 The Faithful GOD ), I need You in my life today and every day.

Please bless me with Your gentle healing touch when others inflict me with cruel words or actions today.

Please bless me to be forgiving as You are forgiving unto me.

Please bless me with Your forgiveness when I am cruel in my words and actions today and guide me to repent to those I have offended either intentionally or unintentionally.

Please constantly remind me to depend upon Your guidance instead of foolishly depending upon my own or others flawed intelligence.

Thank you for Your healing balm upon my wounded heart as You are the best doctor there is.

Thank you that there is always a purpose in the wounds and aches and pains that come my way. They are for teaching me, maturing me or correcting me when I am going astray. You allow these because You love me too much to leave me as I am and desire for me to be the child of Yours You know I can be. It is because of these my Lord that my love for You grows ever deeper every day and we grow ever closer every day.

Thank you for that, the best blessing You can give me above all other blessings.

I humbly say this prayer in the name of my best friend Jesus Christ. Amen

In the Stormy Billows

We can rejoice, too, when we run into problems and trials, for we know that they help us develop endurance.  And endurance develops strength of character Romans 5:3-4 The Holy Bible, The New Living Testament Version

It is in the storms of life we grow the most. Joseph a son of Jehovah

We grow in dependence upon Jehovah for delivery of our trials and tribulations.

We grow the most in the skills and strength He blesses us with to conquer the storms no matter how much they rage in or lives.

This is why I believe the education system in the west and the momma bears would pamper their children are doing a severe dis-service to their children. By sheltering them through the hard times they nurture spinless, entitled momma boys and girls who are unprepared for the world when they leave the nest. This is the major reason there is so much cry babying in society today in the west. The young feel entitled and expect the government to pamper them like mommy and their teachers did.

“Talents are best nurtured in solitude: character is best formed in the stormy billows of the world.” Goethe

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Elohim Ozer Li (Psalms 54:4 GOD My Helper) for blessing me with Your saving help whenever the storms are too great for me to conquer. Thank you for helping me to defeat the raging storms when You know I need to and can defeat them on my own. I praise You in the name of He who calmed the raging storm for His disciples on that lake Jesus Christ. Amen

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

So Too is it With

Because I am in Christ [that is, grafted in, joined to Him by faith in Him as Savior], I am a new creature [reborn and renewed by the Holy Spirit]; the old things [the previous moral and spiritual condition] have passed away. Behold, new things have come [because spiritual awakening brings a new life]. 2 Corinthians 5:17 The Holy Bible, The New Living Testament Version

WE MUST LET GO

Have you ever seen them graft one tree into another?

I have always found that fascinating. The grafted part becomes a part of the tree. It depends upon it for sustenance. Indeed, if it was a different species it now becomes a new one.

So too is it with our relationship with Christ.

The moment we accept Him as our Saviour, King and best friend He begins grafting us into one of His own. We depend upon Him for our mental, physical and spiritual health.

The things that once fascinated us soon become repugnant and repulsive to us.

Now, we have become more like Him we have the same disposition as Him and the same fancies.

This is strange to those on the outside and so they mock us. That is to be expected because those on the out side mocked Jesus as well.

The Holy Spirit is the best make over artist of all Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Bore (Isaiah 40:28 The LORD Creator ) for blessing me with grafting me into You most beautiful holy family. I thank you in the name of He whose blood made it all possible Jesus Christ. Amen

May the light of Christs love shine brightly in your heart today and every day Joseph a son of Jehovah

I Will Not Doubt

“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 The Holy Bible, The New Living Testament

trust in God

I will not doubt, though all my ships at sea
Come drifting home with broken masts and sails;
I will believe the Hand which never fails
From seeming evil worketh good for me.
And though I weep because those sails are tattered,
Still will I cry, while my best hopes lie shattered;
I trust in You. I will not doubt, though all my prayers return
Unanswered from the still, white realm above;
I will believe it is an all-wise love
Which has refused these things for which I yearn.
And though at times I cannot keep from grieving,
Yet the pure ardor of my fixed believing
Undimmed shall burn.

I will not doubt, though sorrows fall like rain,
And troubles swarm like bees about a hive;
I will believe the heights for which I strive
Are only reached by anguish and by pain.
And though I groan and writhe beneath my crosses,
I yet shall see through my severest losses
The greater gain.

I will not doubt. Well anchored is this faith,
Like some staunch ship, my soul braves every gale;
So strong its courage that it will not quail
To breast the mighty unknown sea of death.
Oh, may I cry, though body parts with spirit,

I do not doubt, so listening worlds may hear it,
With my last breath.

PRAYER: Thank you  Jehovah Immeka (Judges 6:12 The LORD Is with You)  that You are always there, that You always care.                                                  Thank you that You will never desert me nor leave me.                   I gratefully praise You in the name of my most steadfast friend Jesus Christ. Amen 

No matter if everyone else deserts You, Jesus is the steady rock that You can always depend upon Joseph a son of Jehovah

The Lord Leads With

 The Lord leads with unfailing love and faithfulness all who keep his covenant and obey his demands. Psalm 25:10 The Holy Bible,The  New Living Testament Version

Those He leads He takes care of. He makes sure they have a place to stay, food and clothing. Because our Father loves us, He is happy to give blessings to us other than these.

fullfilled-desires

That does not mean you will be living in a mansion or driving and expensive car or dining at fancy restaurants. But, you will be contented in your living arrangements because you will have all you need not all you desire which is a form of greed.

Someone who is faithful is someone who can be depended upon to keep their word of honour.

No one is more dependent than Jehovah. He has never broken any of His promises in over six thousand years. That sounds pretty dependable to me.

However, the catch is that we must keep His covenant.

What is His covenant?

First is that we show our love for Him by being loving and obedient children unto Him first and fore most above all others. We must obey His demands so we go where He tells us to go and do what He tells us to do.

Second, that we are loving towards others. We are loving towards them by being helpful, respectful, polite and firm when necessary.

When we are faithful unto Jehovah, He is innumerably more faithful unto us. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Rohi ( Jesus is our Divine Shepherd )- Psalm 23 that when I follow Your wise voice, You always lead me through the dark and dangerous valleys of life. I exalt You in the name of the greatest Shepard, 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.   Joseph a son of Jehovah

We Need Not

share-the-word

Let’s not get tired of doing what is good. At just the right time we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don’t give up. Galatians 6:9 The Holy Bible New Living Translation

We need not travel to some other country to be missionaries. We are to be missionaries right where we are.

“If a man cannot be a Christian where he is, he cannot be a Christian anywhere.” Henry Ward Beecher

Just look around you. How many at your school or work are Christians?

Speaking personally, I have found the best method to be a effective missionary is to walk the walk before you talk the talk. In other words live the Christian life before you begin to preach it.

There is no need for you to take matter into your own hands and decide where to go to be a missionary, that is wrong. You are depending upon yourself, not Jehovah. Most times that only leads to disaster.

Depend upon the One who knows you most so know where to send you so you can be the most effective in bringing His lost sheep into His fold.

Do not put on an appearance of a perfect Christian because that mask will be removed with disastrous affects. Do not be afraid to show your weakness (which is where you depend the most upon Jehovah for) for that make Christianity more appealing to the lost.

PRAYER: Thank you Jehovah Jireth (Genesis 22:14) The LORD Shall Provide for blessing me with provision of opportunities to be a missionary where ever You place me at the right time and right place to share with those whose heart is receptive. I exalt You in the name of He who always shared the Gospel where ever He was whether it was on a hill top or in the local synagogue 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. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Is a Great Fisherman.

WHEN SATAN ATTACKS

The ancient serpent called the devil, or Satan, the one deceiving the whole world Revelation 12:9 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

“Satan never sells his poisons naked — he always gilds them before he vends them.” — Charles H. Spurgeon

This is how addiction begins.

Satan is a great fisherman. He makes deadly lures look like delightful delicacies. Sure it feels good to begins with but once he has you hooked you can squirm all you like but you are his. That is addiction

There is only one way to escape his deadly lure. His name is Jesus.

When you repent of your sins and depend upon the power of Christ, Jesus will smash those chains and set you free.

So if the Son makes you free, you will be free for sure. John 8:36 The Holy Bible, The New Life Version

That was the only way I was freed from alcoholism. I was and alcoholic for over forty years. I tried diet, counselling, meditation all to no avail. When I finally surrendered it to Christ the chains were instantly smashed and I have been free of them for ten years now. It was the same experience with smoking.

Prayer:Thank you Jehovah Moshiekh (Isaiah 49:26&60:16) The LORD my Savior for blessing me with smashing the chains of addiction which satan tricked me into enslaving me.                                      Thank you for Your salvation which lead me away from satans wiles and into Your Holy loving sphere that leads me ever closer to You.                                                                                                                     I exalt You in the name of He who defeated satan on resurrection day Jesus Christ. Amen

May you be blessed with peace and joy every day. Joseph a son of Jehovah
