I Feel Uncomfortable

We must remember what the Lord Jesus said, ‘We are more happy when we give than when we receive.’ ” Acts 20:35 The Holy Bible The New Life Version

CHRIST FIRST, OTHERS SECOND

Speaking personally, I feel uncomfortable when folks give me things.

On the flip side, I love to give to those who are needy and worthy. I know it gives glory to Christ and brings great joy to the receivers and sometimes brings them into Jehovahs Holy family.

Then, there is the ripple effect.

I have found it is one in ten. One man or woman out of ten that is helped it effects them to the point where they now have a giving heart as well. It is small for sure but over a lifetime those small ripples add up to tsunamis waves of giving.

The difference is that earths tsunamis bring destruction, tsunamis of love bring great love, joy and relief.

“Remember there’s no such thing as a small act of kindness. Every act creates a ripple with no logical end.” — Scott Adams

Now, I have said it numerous times before and it will be said again.

Giving to those who need is different from those who are leeches.

Giving to those in need is giving to someone who through no fault of their own is experiencing difficulties. These folks appreciate the help while trying to help themselves.

The leeches are the lazy, ungrateful ones that demand more, more, more while giving nothing in return. 

Give, but give wisely. Joseph a son of Jehovah

This brings us to another important aspect of giving.

We are not to randomly give (although there is nothing wrong with that, like helping a handicapped man or woman with their groceries to their vehicle or giving up your seat on the bus) our fiances or time.

We are to take it to Jehovah in prayer. He will send the Holy Spirit to guide us where the resources will be used effectively.

If you want the Masters help you must be willing to obey His direction in your life.  Joseph a son of Jehovah

Using this method has brought me to places I would never have gone and done things I would never have done. But the results were incredible beyond my imagination.

Doing these things adds jewels to your crown which Christ will place upon your head when you are in Heavens home.

Another pay off is when you are in desperate time Jehovah gives pay back seven times more than you gave.

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Ha Melech Psalms 98:6 The LORD the King) for blessing me with the most incredible adventure in life that was beyond the wildest imagination. Thank you that we have accomplished so much in this life You have blessed me with. In You fantastic name I praise You. 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. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Nothing is too Hard for Him.

 Jesus looked at them intently and said, “Humanly speaking, it is impossible. But with God everything is possible.Matthew 19:26 The Holy Bible The New Living Translation

Oh my awesome majestic King, You constantly amaze me with Your supreme prowess.

There have been countless situations where I am at wits end and know not where to turn nor what to do in oh so many difficult circumstances in my service unto You.

Then, I upon my knees, with rivers of tears streaming down my weary cheeks in desperation I call out to You for Your gracious Divine providence.

Then, You compassionately softly answer my prayer, You extinguish the searing sun of frustration boiling in my brain. You either take control of the situation and bring about solutions to these contentious issues or situations or, You guide me on how to resolve them myself. Sometimes, You help me with the resolution or sometimes You have trust in my competency and allow me to resolve them myself when You have kindly supplied me with the wisdom and tools needed for victory.

No matter which method You use my Love, I know Your gentle but firm hand extinguishes the scorching flames with in my mind and replaces them with soft gentle assurance that the situation is under Your control and because You love me, it will always work out for my good.

I thank You in the name of He who always took good care of those under His care (His disciples), Jesus Christ. Amen

THE LORD WILL ANSWER

Christ blesses us with love, peace and joy. May you be blessed with many opportunities to share these with others today.   Joseph a son of Jehovah

Let Them Not Rule.

 Also keep back Your servant from presumptuous (deliberate, willful) sins;
Let them not rule
and have control over me. Psalm 19:13 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

There are certain inherited sins in us all as well are a fallen race.

The only way to conquer them is through the submission unto the all power of the Holy Spirit.

I know, that is the only way I beat alcoholism.

Have you ever seen a row between two folks and just before it comes to blows a friend steps between one of them and prevents him from getting into a fight? He does so because he knows the other man or woman will beat the snot out of his or her friend. The ringer is laughing at the sucker and egging them on to fight just for the perverted pleasure of fighting.

That is what the man in the above verse is saying.

Satan knows our weakness and will work on it and present it to us in an appealing manner. The temptation is too strong for us. That is when we need to call in the supreme Superman to save the day. His name is The Holy Spirit.

There have been numerous times the temptation was so great I thought my head was going to explode. I called out in desperation :” Come now Holy Spirit, please hurry or all is lost.” It may sound incredible but it is true, the temptation was immediately taken from me.

Satan drools when he sees foolish Christians think they are strong enough to resist him. They are the easiest prey.

That enemy of yours, the devil, prowls around like a roaring lion [fiercely hungry], seeking someone to devour. 1 Peter 5:8 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Without the Holy Spirits help we all fall away from Jehovah and towards satan. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Ganan (The Lord is Our Defense) for being my defense against a wily foe who can easily destroy me without You but cannot touch me with You. I give thanks in the name of He who defeated satan on the cross and at the resurrection Jesus Christ. Amen

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

He Blesses Us by Sending

 “I am with you always [remaining with you perpetually—regardless of circumstance, and on every occasion], even to the end of the age.” Matthew 28:20 Holy Bible Amplified Version

This truth has taken me years to believe ( not learn, I learned it but did not truly believe it).

It is when we are in the furnace of affliction and upon our knees crying out unto Jehovah in agony that He blesses us with the calming and strengthening presence of the Holy Spirit to encourage us on.

It is in the desert when our souls are parched dry and everyone has deserted us that we call out in desperation unto our Beloved for help and He blesses us by sending the Holy Spirit to quench our parched souls with the life giving Divine Holy waters that refreshes our spirits and allows us to not only continue on but to flourish in this inhospitable place.

It is in the raging storms when we believe we are sinking in the crashing waves that we desperately call out unto our Abba in Heaven to rescue us that He blesses us by sending the Holy Spirit to take our hand ever so gently but firmly and will not let go that we walk on the waters through the tumultuous thundering waves with Him.

It is in the firestorms when flames of fire are constantly piercing our hearts that we call out unto our Heavenly Father to protect us that He blesses us by sending the Holy Spirit to heal our wounds and in times carry us through when we no longer have the strength to battle the intense flames.

It is in the storms that Jehovah reveals the most of His love, strength, wisdom and peace that He abundantly blesses us with the most. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Holy Spirit Uzam (The Lord is our Strength in Trouble) for always being present through the numerous trials, tribulations and sorrows that is a part of every life. Thank you for the Divine strength You bless me with. I praise you in the name of He who walked through so many difficulties with His disciples Jesus Christ. Amen

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

The Perfect Power Source.

THE DIVINE LIONS STRENGTH

 

“My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” 2 Corinthians 12:9 New International Version

 

We all have addictions that enslave us. Try as we may they will always conquer us. This leaves us feeling crushed and defeated.

 

Why not do the smart thing and hand it over to the perfect power source Jesus Christ.

 

When we completely surrender it to Him, He will conquer our demons.

 

Make no mistake about it, our addictions are demon possessed and we are too weak to defeat them.

 

I know because of my addiction, alcohol.

 

Try as I may I could not defeat my addiction. Sometimes it literally felt as if someone was pushing me into the liquor store and picking up the bottle even though on the inside I was screaming no, no.

 

Finally in desperation I cried out to Jesus and told Him if He does not free me from this demon I am going to die in a pile of puke in a drunken stupor. Instantly I was sobered up and have not touched a drop since.

That does not mean the demons do not come back to tempt me but I always call upon Jesus rather than depend upon myself and He has never let me down.

 

It is the same thing when we know we are going to face difficult situations.

 

Many times when we depend upon ourselves we fall flat on our faces with disastrous result.

 

Sometimes when I was a teacher I would walk into a certain class thinking it will be a breeze and failing miserably. At break I would find a quiet place and quietly pray for Jesus’ help and having a great class afterwards.

 

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireh (God our provider) for blessing me with Your divine providence to free me from the addictive shackles that we dragging me into hell and with Your divine provision in all times of need. I extol You in the name of He who always provided for His diciples Jesus Christ. Amen.     

                                                

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