He is Instantly Free.

HIS INSTRUCTION

 Blessed (happy, fortunate, to be envied) are the undefiled (the upright, truly sincere, and blameless) in the way [of the revealed will of God], who walk (order their conduct and conversation) in the law of the Lord (the whole of God‘s revealed will). Psalm 119:1 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

When I was a teenager I was driven crazy by my peers. One would be telling me to do this with my life, another would be telling me to do that with my life. There was so many voices I did not know what to do.

It was years later that Jehovah slowly began to reveal His intentions in my life. He did not reveal the whole plan to me, I think that is because I would not have believed it anyway. He took it one step at a time. When the first step was matured then the next was taken. Sometimes the steps were quick, sometimes they were slow.

Over the course of forty years it has been awesome what He has accomplished in me using this method.

I am sure He still has intentions for furthering my maturity and service unto Him.

Now I am free from the confusing and demanding direction given to me by others because of the knowledge that I am guided by the best Guidance Councillor there is.

“Let a man set his heart only on doing the will of God and he is instantly free. No one can hinder him.” — A. W. Tozer

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah El-Deah (God of knowledge) for blessing me that when I set my mind, body and spirit on doing Your will, I am not tossed about like a ship in a raging storm not knowing where to go or what to do to please those in the world. Thank you for blessing me with Your bright light to shine the path of life to take. I exalt You in the name of the light of the world Jesus Christ. Amen

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

You are a Stubborn Fool.

CALMS THE STORMS

For the Lord God, the Holy One of Israel has said this, “In returning [to Me] and rest you shall be saved, In quietness and confident trust is your strength.” But you were not willing Isaiah 30:15 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

So many times when in stress, pain and uncertainty Jehovah is gracious and comes to us offering relief. To receive this relief we must obey His guidance and trust Him.

Instead too many are dim witted and arrogantly tell Jehovah that they can handle the situation themselves (which they know they cannot because it has them stressed out. Too many laugh at Jehovahs guidance and believe their idiotic plans are superior to Him. Not only does their plans fail but their stress level sky rockets until they crash and burn. Then, they go and cry baby to Jehovah about how bad of a God he was because He refused to help them. Oh, the stupidity of it all.

Notice, if you will, that this passage is concerning those of Jehovahs family. They of all souls should know better so they are even bigger idiots. It happens to us all but the wise learn from this and change both their attitude and their actions.

When you refuse to come unto  and obey Jehovah you are a stubborn fool of which there is nothing to compare. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: I wish there was some manner in which I could comfort You Jehovah Tsidkenu (The Lord is Righteousness) for when the fools pierce Your heart with grief because they arrogantly refuse to accept Your guidance in the right way of living. I thank You for said guidance and pray that I always listen, understand and obey Your wisdom. I sincerely ask and pray this in the name of the wisest teacher of all Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Three in One.

Since we are living by the Spirit, let us follow the Spirit’s leading in every part of our lives. Galatians 5:25 New Living Translation Bible

It is a bitterly cold day outside today and I had no intention of leaving the house, but, the Holy Spirit gently nagged me to go for my morning walk.

Before leaving I am grateful the Holy Spirit inspired me to get just the right cat photo’s and write cute inspirational birthday greeting for mom and the pastors wife (the have birthdays a few days apart) from the computer.

Today I am grateful the Holy Spirit nagged me to wear sunglasses even though it was cloudy outside. With the wind chill factor it was minus thirty. Without the sunglasses my eyes would have been injured in the hard, biting wind.

I am grateful the Holy Spirit had me go into the bulk store today because it was seniors discount day (that is not what I am grateful for) because when in there He suggested I buy white chocolate and licorice to make two different birthday cakes for mom.

I am grateful the computer at the computer store I went into to accepted the pdf format used to download Christian books for mom(sometimes they do, sometimes they do not).

 I am grateful that the store I went into to have the birthday photo cards printed off at had some good markdowns and it was the last day of the sale. All these store are in the same mall so I got three in one.

I am grateful that the Holy Spirit educated me in the proper manner in which to deal with the obnoxious neighbour. He reminded me of how to deal with them in the workplace and in the family. That method is being carried over with the neighbour.

I love the unique way in which Jehovah guides me every day. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-‘Immeku (The Lord Is With You) for blessing me with the Holy Spirits guidance in the mundane events in my life as well as the monumental ones. They are all equally important to You and equally important to us to obey if we desire to receive Your blessings. I praise You in the name of He who was obedient unto You all the way to the cross Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Being a Missionary Is

Christ, WILL LEAD

Then Jesus said to them again, “Peace to you; as the Father has sent Me, I also send you [as My representatives].” John 20:21 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Being a missionary is going Where Christ send you. It may not be to another country, it may be to the next door neighbour. Even though it may seem small and insignificant to you, if it was not important to Jesus, He would not be sending you. You do not need a degree in some seminary, you need a willing heart now. Do not worry about what to say or how, the Holy Spirit will either guide you on what to say or will speak through you.

But when the Helper (Comforter, Advocate, Intercessor—Counselor, Strengthener, Standby) comes, whom I will send to you from the Father, that is the Spirit of Truth who comes from the Father, He will testify and bear witness about Me. John 15:26 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

An added benefit of this is becoming close to Jehovah as you become His missionary in your everyday life.

“It is in the ordinary duties and labors of life that the Christian can and should develop his spiritual union with God.” — Thomas Merton

If anyone dares to impede you, they had better be aware.

“Behold, I am going to send an Angel before you to keep and guard you on the way and to bring you to the place I have prepared. Be on your guard before Him, listen to and obey His voice; do not be rebellious toward Him or provoke Him, for He will not pardon your transgression, since My Name (authority) is in Him. But if you will indeed listen to and truly obey His voice and do everything that I say, then I will be an enemy to your enemies and an adversary to your adversaries. Exodus 23:20-22 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-‘Immeku (The Lord Is With You) for blessing me with Your amazing presence with me throughout the day. May I always be receptive unto Your wisdom and grow ever closer with You every minute of every day. I sincerely ask this in the name of He who I enjoy taking walks with and talking with Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Trust Him For the Rest of the Way. ‘

GOD IS WITH US

Do not fear [anything], for I am with you; Do not be afraid, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, be assured I will help you; I will certainly take hold of you with My righteous right hand [a hand of justice, of power, of victory, of salvation].’ Isaiah 41:10 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

In our walk with Jehovah there is constant fear. That is because Jehovah is constantly calling us to step out into the known and trust in His guidance and provision.

From personal experience it can not be fearful but down right terrifying.

He always calls us out in baby steps in the beginning of our walk with Him and each time we listen and obey we see His providence and then He asks us to take bigger steps as we mature in our relationship with Him. When you are obedient unto Him, you will be amazed at the incredible things He will accomplish in your life and through your life.

Even for us that have walked with Him for a long time there are still times of fear in listening to and obeying Him. The thing is though, that the more you step out into the unknown in obedience, the more you learn to trust and have confidence in Him. In reflection in our walk with Him we will be in constant awe and admiration for Him for succeeding in doing so many impossible feats in our lives and what He has done through our lives .

“At times all of us experience fear. But don’t allow fear to keep you from being used by God. He has kept you thus far; trust Him for the rest of the way.” — Woodroll Kroll

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Immanuel (God is with us) for benefiting me with Your Holy presence throughout my life. May my confidence in You and the rest of the trinity grow stronger every day. I exalt Thee in the name of He who encourages me constantly Jesus Christ. Amen

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

True Christian Love Must Be

CHRIST FIRST, OTHERS SECOND 

The one who does not love has not become acquainted with God [does not and never did know Him], for God is love. [He is the originator of love, and it is an enduring attribute of His nature.] 1 John 4:8 The Holy Bible, Amplified Version

True Christian love must be . . .

Blended with all our habits. A habit is formed by repetition of actions over time until they become as natural to us as breathing. Therefore we need the Holy Spirit to guide us in our daily actions to habitually exhibit Christ’s love towards others at every opportune time that comes our way.

Diffused through all our conduct. Our conduct will be a spiritual by product of our habits.

Forming our character. Our character is formed by the the Divine will and attributes of Christ who has shown us what Holy character is by His actions.

It is His morals which is formed in or hearts , minds and actions not the perverted vile worldly ones. His is to be supreme in every action we partake every moment of every day. We can only succeed in this arduous undertaking through the power and guidance of the Holy Spirit to which we must constantly submit to whether it is delightful or difficult. Breathing in our desires.

Christian desire is for the the glorifying of Christ and the betterment of those around us with the ultimate goal of leading them into Jehovahs Holy family.

Speaking in our words. Loves words are encouraging, healing, teaching and comforting. The only way we can attain this is by constantly requesting the Holy Spirit guide our words and obeying His direction of speech in each individual circumstance.

Beaming in our eyes. Christian love must have gentle love in our eyes not earthly lusts nor hatred of prejudice towards others Love is the most difficult action we undertake every day.

Yet, it is also Divine in its nature and Heavenly in its rewards. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Please Jehovah Heseh (God is love) please bless me with an abundance of Divine love to bountifully share with others so as to emulate You. May this love direct them unto the greatest love, You which is one of the greatest gifts You may bless me with. I humbly beseech Thee in the name of He whose infinite love for me took Him all the way to the cross Jesus Christ. Amen

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

We Would Not Believe It.

 For I know the plans and thoughts that I have for you,’ says the Lord, ‘plans for peace and well being and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope. Jeremiah 29:11 Holy Bible Amplified Version

I am glad Jehovah did not inform me of His long term plans for me because I would not have believed it. Many of them would have been terrifying to me because He walked with me through some pretty difficult and dangerous times. They had to happen to make me grow in faith, reverence, love and respect for Him.

As well the plans He had for me to be in service unto Him were unimaginable to a quiet country boy like me.

“Sometimes God does not tell us His plan because we would not believe it anyway.” Carlton Pearson

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Rohi ( Jesus is our Divine Shepherd )for blessing me for with holding Your Divine plans for me because they would have been too terrifying and beyond my capability to understand them. Thank You for the incredible things You have accomplished in my life and through my life through those plans. I exalt You in Your awesome name. Amen.

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