I am Surprised Jehovah is So

god is compassionate

 But is [extraordinarily] patient toward you ” 2 Peter 3:9 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

I am surprised Jehovah is so patient with me.

Year after year I make stupid mistakes. Year after year I fight with Him when He asks me to do something I do not want to do.

Year after years I fight with Him when He tells me not to do something I want to do.

Instead of exhaustively shaking His head and says:Oh Joseph,Oh Joseph, Oh Joseph, how long must you be so obstinate?

He says: “ I know you have a heart dedicated to me and that you are a weak fleshling but do not worry I am a patient, loving, forgiving Father. I know you are a good son whose ultimate desire is to love and obey me. Just keep trying son, we are walking this life together through both your failures and your victories.”

Our ground of hope is that God does not weary of mankind.” — Ralph W. Sockman

Oh wow, what a truly awesome God I love. I deeply desire to be like Him towards others as He is towards me.

Don’t you?

“Patience and perseverance have a magical effect before which difficulties disappear and obstacles vanish.” — John Quincy Adams

Prayer: Oh praise You my Beloved Jehovah EL RACHUM (Jehovah is a Merciful God ) Jehovah EL NASA (Forgiving God) for being so merciful and patient with this difficult child of Yours. Please bless me with the same mercy and love towards others todays as You have towards me every day. I humbly beseech You in the name of He whose great love for me lead Him to patiently endure the torturous cross Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Lived Out in Me.

NOT TRY, TRUST

 The apostles said to the Lord, “Increase our faith [our ability to confidently trust in God and in His power].”Luke 17:5 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

There is a reason we need to humbly request the Lord to increase our faith.

The number one reason is because as we increase our faith (which means trust) in our Beloved we get to know Him ,love Him and worship Him more and more thereby getting ever closer to Him.

The number two reason is that when our faith increases so too does our confidence in the Lord whenever satan comes a knocking. Having confidence in the Lord terrifies satan and his minions. Number three is because when others observe our faith it is a great witness to the power of Christ. This is a powerful witnessing tool.

Show me the way, Lord, let my light shine As an example of good to mankind; Help them to see the patterns of Thee, Shining in beauty, lived out in me. —Neuer

Mind you, we cannot increase our faith without suffering but in the aftermath of our sufferings we are every deeper in gratitude for Jehovahs loving providence. This brings us closer to Him not just on special occasion but in beautiful daily communion with Him. What a blessing that is.

“God delights to increase the faith of his children. We ought, instead of wanting no trials before victory, no exercise for patience, to be willing to take them from God’s hands as a means. Trials, obstacles, difficulties, and sometimes defeats, are the very food of faith.” — George Müller

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Emunah (God is faithful) for being faithful unto this loving child of Yours that You have delivered the right amount of trials and tribulations, sorrows and pain to bring me ever closer to You in faith, understanding and love. I exalt You in the name of He who suffered these in extremes all the to and including the cross for me Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Later I Realized

                              

“Come now, and let us reason together,” Says the Lord. Isaiah 1:18 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

I have met a few psychiatrists (doing volunteer work at hospitals) that I would not confide in them which is better the red or blue smarties much less serious problems in life. They have a world view which is so wrong it does more harm than good.

Listening to many of these celebrities on talk shows talking about life it is bluntly obvious they need some serious counselling and are definitely not qualified to be counselling others.

The best place to go to whenever you encounter any problems is on your knees. Joseph a son of Jehovah

On the other hand every time I have encountered difficulties in my life and gone to Jesus, He is always available and blesses one hundred percent of the time with the best advice. It may not be what I want to hear but it is always what I need to hear.

As well, He blesses me with the best words of comfort, strength, healing and encouragement that there is none other to compare.

There have been so many times in my difficult life that Jesus was the only one there was to talk with. Then later, I realized He was the only one I needed to talk with. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Oh how I so reverently thank you Jehovah Kal El (voice of God) fr the wonderful time we share together in such loving conversations every day. They are such a treasure to me. Not just for the encouragement, strength, council and soothing healing they bless me soul with but also for the precious time we just spend in loving communion with each other.

I extol Thee in the name of my best friend Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Then I am Strong.

                                       

So I am well pleased with weaknesses, with insults, with distresses, with persecutions, and with difficulties, for the sake of Christ; for when I am weak [in human strength], then I am strong [truly able, truly powerful, truly drawing from God’s strength]. 2 Corinthians 12:10 Holy Bible Amplified Version

The world says: depend upon self, just try hard enough and you will succeed. That is a foolish fantasy. Sometimes you will succeed in the task but lose out on the reward of doing it in harmony with Jehovah. The other problem is you are doing what you want and not what Jehovah has made you to do. The fruition of this is unfulfillment in your endevour.

Christians, although we do not enjoy them, should be grateful for our weaknesses. Because, it is in our weaknesses that Christ is strong. The benefit of this is an ever closer relationship with Jehovah, Jesus and the Holy Spirit.

Depend upon self, wait for the fall. Depend upon Christ, be assured of the victory. Joseph a son of Jehovah.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Chatsahi (The Lord is my Strength) for supporting me in Your strong yet gentle arms when I am weak, when distress envelopes me, when I am wrongly persecuted and when sorrow and pain encompass my every being. I appreciate, love and adore You for these amazing attributes in the name of my strongest best friend Jesus Christ. Amen

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

The Champion Worry Wort.

 “So do not worry about tomorrow; for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.” Matthew 6:34 Holy Bible Amplified Version

I used to be the World Champion Worry Wort. You name it and I would worry about it. I swear I used to worry about if I did not fart during the day (really). It caused endless sleepless nights. It is surprising I did not have ulcers or a heart attack. The stress meter would be on overload.

As my walk with Christ slowly matured more and more was put into His capable hands, starting off small and gradually enlarging as the walk with Him became more and more secure more and more was surrendered to Him. The end result was a good nights sleep ( which is enjoyed almost every night now).

There is more and more serenity in uncertain circumstances.

There now is amazing physical, mental and spiritual health.

Now there are times when there are uncertain circumstances and or situations that arise that is completely out of my control and a panic attack begins. That is when I sprint for a Bible, a quiet place to be with my Beloved and allow Him to comfort and assure me that every thing is under control. The stress meter goes dead and the worry melts away.

“Never dwell on the tomorrow; remember, that it’s God’s and not ours.” Edward B. Pusey

Prayer: Oh a deep heartfelt Thank you my cherished Jehovah Shalom (The Lord blesses with Peace) for blessing me with peace in every aspect of my life because I know You love me, You care, You help me and guide my steps. You are always there through all my difficulties and sorrows. You are the greatest. I praise You in the name of the Prince of Peace Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Are You a Cp or a Pp?

For do I now persuade men, or God? Or do I seek to please men? For if I still pleased men, I would not be a bondservant of Christ.Galatians 1:10 New King James Version

Are you a Christ pleaser or a person pleaser?                                                                          

You cannot be both.                                                                                                      

Speaking from personal experience trying to be a people pleaser is a good way to have a nervous breakdown.                                                                                                                  

When I was a teenager there were six people telling me to do this and six telling me to do that. I did not know what to do. As well you set yourself up for abuse as people take advantage of you and abuse you.                                                                                  

When I live my life for Jesus times have always been hard but I knew He was always there with me. The blessing in this is it brought us so much closer together.                    

When you are a people pleaser many times they are the cause of your difficulties and when you encounter difficult times they are the first to desert you.                                    

Since becoming a Christ pleaser He has promised and always delivered on His promise to take care of me. This has removed a lot of stress from my life and brought a lot of peace and serenity to my life. Since being blessed with this relationship what others think of me does not matter. What matters is what Christ thinks of me. And I know, He loves me, cares for me and provides for me.                                                                              

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Pryyand (Jesus my friend) that You are so loving, kind, generous, wise and strong with Your beloved servant and friend. It is the most cherished blessing in my life. I exalt You in Your life giving name. Amen.                                          

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