Cheers Him Up.

helping-others

 “An anxious heart weighs a man down, but a kind word cheers him up. “ Proverbs 12:25 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Anxiousness is described as feeling or showing uncomfortable feelings of uncertainty .

We have all encountered those around us that are suffering. How many have reached out and touched them with healing kindness ?

How can we help them ?

The best thing to do is to show you care by listening to their problems ( Jehovah takes the time to listen to our problems should we not emulate Him by doing the same for those that are suffering around us ? ) .

We are not just talking about the homeless .

We are talking about those that are suffering a disease . Yes , for many , going into a hospital is an uncomfortable experience but how comfortable do you think it is for them. Why not go in and reminisce with them about the good ol days . Why not go in with some photo’s of happy times . Speaking from experience you will be amazed at the amount of good you accomplish.

We are talking about those who are having difficulty in their studies or at work. Those of us who are older can relate and provide encouraging words to strengthen , guide them and encourage them. What about those that are experiencing relationship problems like with marriage or children? Again , those of us who are older have walked that walk and can provide positive affirmation to them by our experiences which will guide them , strengthen them and reassure them .

There are so many other opportunities available unto you Christian. All you have to do is be available , pray and be obedient unto Jehovahs guidance where your help is needed.

Prayer: Please Jehovah-Machsi – Lord my Refuge bless me with the opportunity to be a refuge unto those enduring trials and tribulations , sorrows and snares just as You are for me. Bless me with Your divine wisdom , grace , meekness and humbleness to help them as You have aboundingly done for me . I humbly request this in the name of He who was a refuge to the poor , the sick and the weak when He walked amongst us Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

You Meet the Criteria

JESUS' GUIDANCE

 But God has selected [for His purpose] the foolish things of the world to shame the wise [revealing their ignorance], and God has selected [for His purpose] the weak things of the world to shame the things which are strong [revealing their frailty]. 1 Corinthians 1:27 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Do you believe you are not smart enough to share the gospel or a Bible study?

Jehovah needs you for that exact reason. He uses the uneducated to shame the arrogant that profess to be wise. He shows that He is using you to show others what He can do through others and themselves. You meet the criteria to be useful in His kingdom work.

You do not need to be pretty enough, rich enough, a social elite or genius to do His work ( indeed , many times these are a hindrance ).

Do you have a heart that is willing to do His will and be obedient unto His calling in your life ?

Then , you meet the criteria to be His servant.

Have a sincere desire to serve God and mankind, and stop doubting, stop thinking negatively. Simply start living by faith, pray earnestly and humbly, and get into the habit of looking expectantly for the best. –Norman Vincent Peal

Indeed , I had no university degree when I went to service unto the Lord in Asia but had a willing heart to learn how to teach and was obedient unto His calling. In the process I was a much sought after teacher shaming many of the arrogant university educated ones who thought they were superior to me. It was a comical twist when these souls ended up coming to me the “ uneducated “ for advice because I knew how to teach in Asia ( through the Lords special class which took two years and a lot of effort and trial and error on my behalf) and they did not ( people in different parts of the world learn differently than from those of different parts of the world ) .

Jehovah can use the outcasts of society more than the elite because the outcasts know they need Jehovahs guidance more than the elite do. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Bara ( The Lord Creator) for taking a filthy lost sinner like me and creating in me a heart, mind and soul that is receptive to Your Divine purification and blessing me with Your Divine purpose. I exalt You in the name of He who transformed ignorant fishermen into world transforming disciples Jesus Christ . Amen

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

We Are at War.

HAVE COURAGE

For though we walk in the flesh [as mortal men], we are not carrying on our [spiritual] warfare according to the flesh and using the weapons of man. The weapons of our warfare are not physical [weapons of flesh and blood]. Our weapons are divinely powerful for the destruction of fortresses. 2 Corinthians 10:3-4 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Make no mistake about it Christian, we are at war. Our enemy is stronger than we are, smarter than we are and more numerous that we are.

All is lost then, you say.

No, we have complete victory in our grasp every time the enemy attacks. Our weapons are few but guaranteed to defeat the foe every time.

Number one: when the evil one or his minions come with a direct attack our Heavenly Father sends in reinforcements.

For He will command His angels in regard to you, To protect and defend and guard you in all your ways [of obedience and service]. Psalm 91:11 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Who do you think will win that battle?

He and his goonies are far smarter the we but we have a weapon to defeat them every time. Do not believe you battle them and win for then defeat is certain.

It is a wise man that trusts Jehovah, it is a foolish man that depends upon himself. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Do not let mercy and kindness and truth leave you [instead let these qualities define you]; Bind them [securely] around your neck, Write them on the tablet of your heart. Proverbs 3:3 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Know your Bible, eat its words, carry it with you, write down victory verses and be prepared to use them. Then satan and his goons will flee from you. Joseph- Anthony: Green

The Lord is near to all who call on Him, To all who call on Him in truth (without guile). Psalm 145:18 Amplified Bible

Satan will work on your conscience and try to convict you of pass sins.

Do not listen to him but instead listen to our Heavenly Father.

Thanks be it is by Christs blood when we repent that we are acquitted of our sins. Thanks be to God, who gives us the victory [as conquerors] through our Lord Jesus Christ. 1 Corinthians 15:57 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Satan will try to defeat us with soul and spiritual destructive habits. Clasp solidly unto Christs power to defeat this weakling.

No temptation [regardless of its source] has overtaken or enticed you that is not common to human experience [nor is any temptation unusual or beyond human resistance]; but God is faithful [to His word—He is compassionate and trustworthy], and He will not let you be tempted beyond your ability [to resist], but along with the temptation He [has in the past and is now and] will [always] provide the way out as well, so that you will be able to endure it [without yielding, and will overcome temptation with joy]. 1 Corinthians 10:13 Holy Bible Amplified Bible

“We’re in spiritual combat – cosmic combat for the heart and soul of humankind.” — Chuck Colson

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Gador Milchamah ( The Lord is Mighty in Battle) for blessing me with Your Heavenly protection whenever I am being attacked by demonic forces. Thank you for providing with Your Divine word to defeat the demons when they come for battle. I praise You in the name of the King of the Heavenly armies Jesus Christ . Amen

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

Bring Me There

FULLFILLED DESIRES

 For the Lord God is a sun and shield; The Lord bestows grace and favour and honour; No good thing will He withhold from those who walk uprightly. Psalm 84:11 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Grace is defined as unmerited divine assistance given humans for their regeneration or sanctification and a virtue coming from God. Virtue is defined as conformity to a standard of right.

Therefore we need the Holy Spirits guidance and power to conform to Jehovahs Divine standard of morals in our lives. This is not a one off experience but rather a moment by moment, day by day experience. It is not anything we can accomplish by ourselves. Our intelligence is very limited compared to Jehovahs infinite wisdom. So we need to constantly depend upon His unlimited wisdom is every aspect of our lives.

To stumble on the little things will cause the big stumble to occur. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Our strength to live such lives is weak compared to the strength the Holy Spirit will instill in us to accomplish this feat. Once we begin to have integrity instilled in us we are not to become complacent and believe we will always have it. Satan is far smarter than us and can quickly strip it away from us. We are not to become arrogant towards others lest it be stripped from us to humble us.

“If I am not [in a state of grace], God bring me there; if I am, God keep me there!” — Joan of Arc

Prayer: Jehovah- Go’el (The Lord is my Redeemer) for Your awesome gift of graceful guidance in every aspect of my life. Thank you for not only forgiving me when I stumble and fall but with Your strong gentle hands lift me up to continue my walk towards the Heavenly home You have graciously prepared for me. I laud You in the name whose graceful sacrifice on the cross made it all possible Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Come close to God.

PREDESTINATION

 Come close to God [with a contrite heart] and He will come close to you. Wash your hands, you sinners; and purify your [unfaithful] hearts, you double-minded [people]. James 4:8 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Contrite means you feel bad about your sins and desire to repent of them and double minded means you think this way but behave in the exact opposite way.

Have you ever met someone who says they will do this and then they do that. It is not a one off experience but a habitual one.

For example you make an appointment with them for nine o clock in the morning and they do not show up until eleven or one in the afternoon. They do not call to say they will be late and when they arrive they do not apologize but make some stupid excuse. It infuriated me. Now I just tell folks to be there on time because I am not waiting. If it is important enough for them then they will be there on time.

Mutual respect is an intricate part of a loving relationship. Joseph- Anthony: Green

The same thing is true with Jehovah.

We must be respectful towards Him if we desire a loving relationship with Him.

If He convicts you of a sin in your life and you admit it but intentionally continue in your sin that will make Him angry and yes He will walk away from you. He will not accept lame excuses nor tolerate insolence.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Pryyand ( God is my friend ) for blessing me with a Heavenly friendship with You. Please bless me with always being respectful towards You in all I say and do. I humbly give thanks for this blessing and request this blessing in the name of my bestest friend Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Set Aside Self-Righteous Pride.

fruit-of-the-spirit

Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God [set aside self-righteous pride], so that He may exalt you [to a place of honor in His service] at the appropriate time. 1 Peter 5:6-7 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Have you ever been in the company of the : I did” s You know the type, they cannot say a complete sentence without saying: “ I did this.” or : : I did that. “. To me I find it an extremely annoying experience and want to tell them : “ You are not the only person in the world you know.” Some times I do. You should see the look of indignation on their faces.

On the other hand I just go about serving the Lord quietly. Yes, He has taken me many incredible places and accomplished amazing things through me. Some times during a conversation these experiences will be shared with others. They look at me in amazement and comment that I have lived an incredible life. To me there is nothing incredible about it but I give Jehovah the glory because with out Him nothing would have been accomplished. Folks are always asking me to share these experiences with them because they find them so fascinating and interesting.

The good part though is that through sharing these experiences with them it encourages them and strengthens them through their hard times to go to Jehovah.

As well, it helps some of them to see just what Jehovah can do in their lives when they surrender to Him and place their faith in Him.

Give credit for your accomplishments where it belongs, to Jehovah, not you. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Jireh (God is our Provider) for Your overflowing  benevolence of opportunities to exhibit the awesome possibilities Your provide to those with an obedient heart unto You. I exalt You in the name of He who accomplished amazing feats because He walked in honour and obedience unto You Jesus Christ. Amen

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

But Whoever has Adequate Resources

SHARING

 But whoever has the world’s goods (adequate resources), and sees his brother in need, but has no compassion for him, how does the love of God live in him? 1 John 3:17 Holy Bible, Amplified Version

I have seen people who do without their daily needs so they can give to the bleeding hearts (most of whom are scam artists in my opinion) on TV cry babying for money. It is pitiful to see but they think they are doing good (meanwhile many of these ceo’s are getting paid millions of dollars and the people you think you are helping are just too lazy to help themselves). Many falsely believe they are obeying Jehovahs commands to help the “poor”.

When I was was in Central America folks were constantly telling me to get married and have lots of children so they can support them when they get old. Meanwhile they cannot support their families. They would look at me and say because I have more money than them I “owe” it to them to give them my money.

As well, volunteering in soup kitchens it was common for the “poor” to come up to me and brag about the new tattoo they got and then cry baby they do not have money for food and demand I give them money because I have more money than them.

We are to give, but we are to give sensibly.

Check out the organization (begin by looking at the ceo’s wages ) and if the money is going to actually help those who are worthy of the help.

I do not care if you think I am a scrooge. I would rather give wisely and be considered a Scrooge than give foolishly and be a sucker. Joseph- Anthony :Green

If you cannot afford to help financially then help by donating your time to a worthy cause.

Prayer:Please Jehovah-Jireh (God is our Provider) provide wisdom unto those who wish to honour You but have limited financial resources to organizations that will appreciate their skills more than their finances. Please provide those with available financial resources to organizations that will wisely use the gifts graciously provided unto them. I ask this in the name of he who always provided for His disciples when he walked with them Jesus Christ. Amen.

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