It is a test of the Heart

tested in affliction

 I know also, my God, that You test the heart and delight in uprightness and integrity. 1 Chronicles 29:17 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Many times a trial is a test.

It is a test of our faith in the providence of our Heavenly Beloved. A test to see if we trust Him in His word, promise , unto us. It is a test of our maturity, not for Jehovahs sake but for ours. It reveals where we need to work more, either by ourselves, or in harmony with the Holy Spirit or to work at completely surrendering unto Jehovah- which is an act of faith.

Many times I have cried out to my Beloved and asked Him why this was happening to me. Why are you refusing to Help me? It was only later that He revealed to me that it was a test.

Sometimes I passed and was ready for Him to mature me in the next step to becoming a mature child of His.

Sometimes I failed and would have to relearn the lessons He was teaching me. He was not angry with me but encouraging me and patient with me.

So, when you are experiencing a trial, tribulation or deep agony have faith that there is a Divine purpose for it and you will come through it with His amazing providence.

As well you will become every closer unto Him through this process.

“For God to explain a trial would be to destroy its purpose, calling forth simple faith and implicit obedience.” — Alfred Edersheim

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah El Roi. You are the God who sees who see my life from beginning until my entrance into Heavens gate. Thank you that through the tests You have allowed to come my way, You have blessed me with coming ever closer in our loving relationship. I praise You in the name of He with whom I desire to walk close with in our Heavenly home 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 More Amazed I Am.

HE GIVES ABUNDANTLY

“For everything that was written in the past was written to teach us, so that through endurance and the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope” Romans 15:4 New King James Version

 

The more I read and understand the Bible the more amazed I am at how reverent it is in my life.

 

For example since learning in the book of Titus to warn a troublemaker twice, if they refuse to listen have nothing to do with them I have a lot less stupid arguments. I come to understand that they are their happiest when causing trouble.

When reading about Joshua and how he endured forty years in the desert because of the disobedient Israelites he ended up enjoying the gifts of a fruitful life in the promised land.

Whenever I get discouraged and read the Bible the Holy Spirit always leads me to encouraging verses or to situations where people in the Bible endured hardships and prospered.

For example I learned that when the disciples were in the storm and called out to Jesus He rescued them. He allowed them to encounter the storm to teach them to depend more upon Him. That is a great lesson for me.

 

Truly, the more I read the Bible the more amazed I am how much I see myself in its pages.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Chanan (God is gracious) for the amazing blessing of Your incredible book of knowledge, the Bible. Thank you for being so gracious as to open my mind and heart to the wisdom therein and to understand the experiences of those who have gone before me. I give thanks in the name of he who taught so much by quoting and explaining the scriptures Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

I Will Call and You Will Answer.

FROM THE HEART

Then call, and I will answer; Or let me speak, then You respond to me. Job 13:22 New King James Version

You do not need any roseraries or recited prayers to connect with Jehovah. Matter of a fact He will ignore those prayers. You do not need to pray to dead saints to get Jehovahs ears.

 

You need an honest sincere heart that longs for a loving relationship with Him, to be honest with Him.

 

But if you expect Him to answer your prayers you need to listen to what He is saying or He will ignore your prayers. What is the sense of Him answering your prayers if you ignore His advice?

We need never shout across the spaces to an absent God. He is nearer than our own soul, closer than our most secret thoughts.” A.W. Tozer                                        

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Kalel (voice of God) for always being there to listen to me when I desire an honest sinsere conversation with You. Thank you my love for Your comforting and encouraging words. Thank you my love for blessing me with You infinite wisdom to guide my life. I exalt You in the name of He who is always there to listen and answer us Jesus Christ. Amen.                                      

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