Does Not Give Us

 The Lord says, “I will guide you along the best pathway for your life. I will advise you and watch over you. Psalm 32 : 8 Holy Bible New Living Translation

I have learned the hard way that going my way leads to disaster, going Jehovahs way always leads to success. It took me many decades to learn this. That does not mean it will be easy. As a matter of a fact, it will be very difficult. That is good because it brings us closer to Jehovah, Jesus and the Holy Spirit.

He has promised His guidance is the only true way to go. I know this to be true. Along the way He always provides just the right amount for success.

Why give more than is required, it will only go to waste like the manna in the desert with the Israelis with Moses. He has promised He will never leave us nor forsake us. I know this to be true.

God does not give us everything we want, but He does fulfill all His promises . . . leading us along the best and straightest paths to Himself.” — Dietrich Bonhoeffer

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-‘Immeku (The Lord Is With You) for blessing me with allowing me to travel down paths that led only to unfulfillment, pain and sorrow. It was necessary to bring me onto the path to the most fabulous love affair there could ever be, that between You and me. Thank you for leading me into Your loving eternal arms. In the deepest gratitude from this adoring child of Your, thank you in the name of He who is always with me Jesus Christ. Amen

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

He Starts With an Impossibility.

But He said, “The things that are impossible with people are possible with God.” Luke 18:27 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

In every major event of my growth in my walk with Christ it was always preceded by a extreme difficult time in my life. Each time the Lord was speaking to me to take a huge leap of faith in what He wanted me to do and where He wanted me to go. In obedience unto Him He orchestrated life changing alteration to my persona. Each procession involved taking what seemed like an impossible task. It was extremely challenging and painful, however in reflection I praise Him every day for His infinite wisdom, assistance, comfort and strength.

So, when, or if Jehovah is now, asking you to take that leap of faith it is strongly recommended that you step out into the unknown because it is there that He shall bless you with making Himself known to you.

“When God is about to do something great, he starts with a difficulty. When he is about to do something truly magnificent, he starts with an impossibility.” — Armin Gesswein

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ‘Uzam (The Lord is our Strength in Trouble) for Your grace in using my troubles and woes to accomplish amazing feats in my life to bring glory, honour and the little lost sheep unto You. I praise You in the name of He who astounded those around Him with His fantastic grace Jesus Christ. Amen

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

It is Not the Gospel You Believe

Do not conform to the pattern of this world but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what Gods will is. His good pleasing and perfect will. Romans 12:2 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

I have met many that believe they can do what they want and it is okay. No matter how much scripture you share with them that their ways are wrong they refuse to listen.

The worst offenders of course are the fools that believe that once they accept Christ as their savior they can do what ever they like and they are still saved.

The next biggest group of fools are those that believe because Jesus is love everyone will be given a free pass to Heaven no matter how they lived their lives here on earth.

Boy are they in for a shock on judgement day.

“If you believe what you like in the gospel, and reject what you don’t like, it is not the gospel you believe, but yourself.” St. Augustine of Hippo

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Rabbi (God our Teacher) for teaching me the truth that is in the Bible.

Thank you for blessing me with helping me incorporate that in my life when it is difficult to do so, so that I may continue to mature in our Heavenly loving relationship.

I praise You in the name of He who lives the most righteous life of all Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Three Things That Only God Knows

                                                                  

I do not know, [only] God knows. 2 Corinthians 12:2 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

There has been so many times when trials and tribulations have struck without warning in my life (matter of a fact almost all the time). I call out unto Jehovah and ask Him why I had no warning and why it was happening. He is silent. That is a good thing. He does not inform me because there would be terror in my heart at the foreordained knowledge of what was coming. He does not inform me because either He is in the process of molding me through this event or He is testing me through it.

He does not allow me to know how long it will last. There is good reason for that. If I knew how long it would last it may seem too long a time or I would become complacent in the knowledge that it will only last for a while.

So, when you are going through and difficulty and Jehovah is silent, there is a good reason for it.

No, He is not angry with you, although this may be an event to discipline you.

No, He has not deserted you, He loves you too much to ever desert you.

“There are three things that only God knows: the beginning of things, the cause of things and the end of things.” Welsh Proverb

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Tsidkenu (The Lord is Righteousness) for blessing me with events in my life that You have used to burn off the dross to create in me a righteous heart and life of dedication unto You. Thank you for not forewarning me of these events becasue they would be too terrible for me to grasp at the time. Thank you that through these events You strengthen my faith in You. I exalt Thee in the name of He who trusted You all the way to the cross Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Give It All.

The Lord is near to those who have a broken heart, And saves such as have a contrite spirit  Psalm 34:18 New King James Version

 

Image

Whenever we encounter trials and tribulations (and we will) and we are at the end of our rope, that is when we are to let go and fall into the loving arms of our caring, healing and wise Father in Heaven.                                                                                                          

It took me many decades to learn this simple but powerful truth. If the lesson had of been learned there would have been much less difficulty in my life.                                                

His answer has come in many different ways. It could be a Bible verse, it could be a song or sermon or it could be a dream (whenever I have vivid dreams they are recorded on an MP3 and written down when I awaken the next morning. They have always had the answers. Maybe not that morning but within three days the answer was revealed to me.).

Do not be afraid to let it all out when you are frustrated, angry, or hurt. Jehovah can take it. Read how they let it all out in the Old Testament.                                                                  

Read how Moses let it out or Job. Be respectful though.                                                      

Now when He reveals to you the answer in order for the situation to be resolved you must be obedient otherwise it is useless.                                                                                            

So for example if you are suffering from kidney stones and it is revealed to you to stop drinking coffee, you must stop drinking coffee or the problem only gets worse.                  

Then do not blame God.                                                                                                

Prayer:Thank you Jehovah Ropheka (God our healer) for being so loving and wise that You are always approachable and bless me with abundant wisdom and resources to solve all my problems. I joyfully thank You in the name of He who always gave the correct medicine when He walked amongst us Jesus Christ. Amen.                                                

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

Call Upon Him in Truth.

Image

The Lord is near to all who call upon Him, To all who call upon Him in truth.Psalms 145: 18 New King James Version

The important part of this equation of this verse is that we are to call upon our beloved in truth.                                                                                                                                  

Many men and women only consider the part where the Lord is near to those who call upon him and forget the second part.                                                                                  

So if for example you are have difficulty in a relationship instead of asking Jehovah to force the other one to see your point of view why not ask that He blesses both of you to see the problem and how to solve it wisely along with the strength to do so.                        

Many times they do not want to see that the problem may be themselves and they need to change.                                                                                                                                    

So we must call to the Lord in truth, accept His advice, pray for the wisdom and strength to obey His advice and then take the proper action. This may mean that you may have to get Christian counselling if not together than go yourself.                                              

Prayer: Please Jehovah KalEL (voice of God) bless me with the wisdom and strength to be an obedient child and listen and obey the voice of my Heavenly Father whenever I encounter any problems. I humbly request this in the name of Your most obedient son Jesus Christ. Amen.                                                                                                            

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