A Lowly Worm

 Though you are a lowly worm, O Jacob, don’t be afraid, people of Israel, for I will help you. I am the Lord, your Redeemer. Isaiah 41:14 The Holy Bible The New Living Translation

The worm is a lowly creature that is easily destroyed. It is weak and helpless.

That is exactly the Christian that Jehovah accomplishes the most with.

Those are the ones that do not depend upon their own strength nor wit to accomplish the task our Heavenly King sets before them.

Those are the ones that will stun the world because of Jehovahs power beating within their souls.

Those are the ones that confuse those who are wise in their own feeble minds with the Holy Spirits wisdom coursing through the brain.

Those are the ones whose song of joy, praise, adulation and respect sings like a Heavenly chorus echoing through the Heavens when the guaranteed victory is gained to the Heavenly King. It was He who used His loyal submissive servant to gain triumph which the lowly servant gleefully admits.

The ones who depend upon their own wit or strength satan laughs at as they are as easily beaten as a two year old in a wrestling match against a twenty year old. Oh what a deep cloud of shame and humiliation encompasses them.

When Jehovah calls us to accomplish great tasks it is normal for us finite creatures to experience anything but terror at such a great task. We know our weaknesses and cry out “not I my love for I am weak, send someone else”. This is the one with whom the Holy Spirit accomplishes the greatest with as He fills the Christian with confidence and power and not of ones own disposition.

DIVINE STRENGTH

Then fear flees like a frightened bird replaced with the power and confidence of the Holy Spirit.

Satan and his minions tremble at the sight of one such as these.

Those strong and wise in the world turn and run like scared dogs at the sight of such ones as filled with the Holy Spirit. That and that alone is how a Christian lives a victorious life.

By my strength and wit only failure will be my reward. By submitting to The Holy Spirit victory is guaranteed. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Izuz Wegibbor (Psalms 24:8 The LORD Strong and Mighty) for blessing me with Your undefeatable strength when the foes are too numerous and too strong for me to defend myself against.                                             

Thank you for blessing me with the strength to continue on when exhausted to a great victory for You.

I praise You for Your mighty, yest gentle protective arm around this feeble child of Your in the name of He whose strength kept Him nailed to the agonizing cross to accomplish the most awesome feat of all, salvation to all, Jesus Christ. Amen

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

The Only Way To

NO DOMINION Discretion is a life giving fountain to those who possess it, but discipline is wasted on fools. Proverbs 16:22 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

The only way to possess discretion is by daily requesting it from He whose discretion is the best there is, that is Jehovah. We need to moment by moment depend upon the Holy Spirits discretion in every nick and cranny of our life.

Otherwise, we are easy prey for the scammers and con artists out there. The worst one of them all of course is satan. He will con you all the way into Hell if you let him. I have learned this the hard way but I pray the lesson is never forgotten.

Depend upon the Holy Spirit for success. Anything else, is a recipe for failure and disaster. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer:Thank you Jehovah Ori (Psalms 27:1) – The LORD My Light for blessing me with sending the Holy Spirit to shine His brilliant light of wisdom to guide me to righteous discretion. It has prevented a lot of grief in my life and blessed me with abundant peace.                                                                             I sing my praise unto You in the name of the wisest of all Jesus Christ. Amen

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

One of the Most Important Things

city shrounded in mist in the mountains seen through the forest Hong Kong-crop

Teach me to do your will, for you are my God. May your gracious Spirit lead me forward on a firm footing. Psalm 143:10 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation.

One of the most important things learned in life is that our greatest lessons are learned from our failures.

Just look up any invention and find out how many times the inventor failed before finally having success.

When we mess up we fess up and Jehovah forgives us, picks us up and tells us okay, you messed up, now learn your lesson and continue on towards you maturity in your walk towards Heaven.

If you have not learned your lesson, do not worry, Jehovah will allow it to be repeated until it is learned.

I believe failure is the greatest tool the Holy Spirit uses to teach us. Joseph a son of Jehovah

The more we learn from our failures and how the Holy Spirit guides us to success from them them more we become firmly established upon the path to Heaven the Holy Spirit is guiding us on. Joseph a son of Jehovah

That is one of the greatest crimes parents and teachers commit with children. They do not let them learn from their failures.

Prayer:Thank you Holy Spirit Rabbi (God our Teacher) for blessing me with Your wise, powerful and effective manner of teaching me. May it always help to evolve my relationship with my loving Heavenly Father, Jehovah loving big brother Jesus and You the most amazing Teacher ever closer and stronger.                                                                                                                 I give thanks and humbly ask of these blessings in the name of the best Teacher Jesus Christ. Amen

May your house be filled with joy in the morning and sweet dreams at night. May it be a home where love has come to live. Joseph a son of Jehovah

You Must Clothe Yourselves With

LOVING TO EACH OTHER

  Since God chose you to be the holy people he loves, you must clothe yourselves with tenderhearted mercy, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience. Colossians 3:12 Holy Bible, New Living Translation

There is too little of tender hearted mercy today. Tender hearted mercy means that our hearts ache when we see someone in need. We make a commitment to help them where they cannot help themselves (do not mistake that for refuse to help themselves. If drug addicts refuse to take the steps necessary to destroy the habit all you help is nothing more than a crutch to them which does not help them). This is not a one day event or token kindness like giving to the food bank (although there is nothing wrong with that) but rather a long term commitment.

So if there is a youngster that is having problems in life us older generation should come along side of them and offer them our experiences, both good and bad (yes it is good for the younger generation to hear of our failures to help them see that we were just like them).

We must exhibit kindness, especially to the elder generation. If a senior needs someone to cut their grass or shovel the snow from their driveway we are to offer to help them (be careful not to be abused though. Just because they are seniors does not mean they cannot be manipulative, indeed most seniors I know are very manipulative.

That is why it is so important to pray to Jehovah to guide you to where your help is appreciated).

We must be there to strengthen the weak when temptation comes a knocking at their door. We have all opened that door when we should not have from time to time so we know what they are going through.

Resolve to be tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving, and tolerant of the weak and the wrong. Sometime in life you will have been all of these. Lloyd Shearer

Prayer: Please Jehovah Heseh (God is love) bless this child of Yours to emulate Your love with all those I encounter today so as to be a light to guide them to the most incredible love affair there ever can be or will. I humbly request this in the name of He who showed His supreme love for me on the cross Jesus Christ. Amen

May the light of Christs love shine brightly in your heart today and every day

He Blesses Us With The

SPIRITUAL STRENGTH

It is God who enables us, along with you, to stand firm for Christ.2 Corinthians 1:20-22 Holy Bible, New Living Translation

We cannot stand alone when we are Christians. The devil is too willy and strong.

The world is too overpowering to even attempt such a thing.

However, when we stand upon the rock of Christ nothing can or ever will defeat us. He blesses us with the strength, wisdom, grace and resources to a successful journey to His Heavenly home.

As well, in time of need, He will bring along those encouragers that invite us to not give up but rather give in. Give in to the power of The Holy Spirit which dwells with in us.

We will not succeed in all of the endeavors that come our way but they will be used as teaching lessons to continue on.

The other reason we will occasionally fail is to teach others later through our failure and how Jehovah picked us up and encouraged us on.

“You will never stand alone while standing on the Word of God.” Kathryn Souza-Wine

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ‘Izoa Hakaboth (Lord Strong and Mighty) for blessing me with Your Divine strength and might as I travel about this day and every day. May I be blessed to share these with those who are in a time of weakness and need so as to strengthen them as You have strengthened me. I humbly request this in the name of the strongest, mightiest of them all Jesus Christ. Amen

May your house be filled with joy in the morning and sweet dreams at night. May it be a home where love has come to live. Joseph a son of Jehovah

One of the Most Important Parts Of

WITH ALL YOUR HEART

The secret [of the wise counsel] of the Lord is for those who fear Him,
And He will let them know His covenant
and reveal to them [through His word] its [deep, inner] meaning. Psalm 25:14 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

One of the most important parts of this verse is those who fear Him. What this means in this context is those who respect Jehovah.

Think about it?

Would you waste your time trying to talk with someone who is rude and disrespectful towards you? And, quite probably very arrogant to boot.

Now, why would Jehovah waste His precious time speaking with a Mr. Know It All anyway. After all, according to them they know better than Jehovah to begin with so it is an exercise in futility to attempt to bless them with wise council.

As absurd as it sounds, I have met many that behave in just such a manner.

Of course there are times when we fall into this same category. Jehovah requests we do this but we believe we have a better way to accomplish the deed (which, of course, always leads to a pitiful disastrous failure.).

A covenant is a an agreement, usually formal, between two or more persons to do or not do something specified.

Now why would Jehovah waste His valuable time attempting to make an agreement with a disagreeable soul?

Yes Jehovah has a deep desire for us to join His esteemed family and to bless us however, as in every family there are always rules.

When you look at the Bible two important words are if and but. If you obey My commands you will be blessed but, if you disobey them you will be cursed.

Much of the Bible has deep meaning that its wisdom is bypassed by the disobedient.

When we agree to obey and respect our Heavenly Fathers covenant with us He will reveal incredible deep hidden meanings in His word.

So for example when Jesus says , “I assure you and most solemnly say to you, before Abraham was born, I Am.” John 8:58 The Holy Bible Amplified Version He is talking about the voice Abraham heard in the bush when he was commissioned to free the Israelite’s from Egyptian slavery which means He has no beginning and no end. This put Him on equal footing as Jehovah. This blows apart any heresy that says that Jesus is not Divine.

As in any family there are secrets that are shared with no one else. In this case what is the use, no one will believe Him anyway?

When you show respect and obedience unto Jehovah, you will be amazed at just what secrets He will reveal unto you. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: All praise by unto You Jesus Sabaoth (Lord of Hosts ) that Your are the only way to Heavens Gate. All others are inferior to You. By Your grace You have adopted me into a Holy family. All glory unto You my love. AMEN

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

Commit Your Works

Christ, WILL LEAD

Commit your works to the Lord [submit and trust them to Him], And your plans will succeed [if you respond to His will and guidance].Proverbs 16:3 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Most times I have attempted to accomplish anything on my own it always failed miserably.

When I submitted my plans to Jehovah, He may have suggested not to attempt them.

Being stubborn and independent I refused to listen to Him and the end result was always a disaster. Many times I have submitted my plans to Jehovah and He graciously suggested tweaks to them. I felt insulted and refused to listen to Him. The end result was complete failure.

It took many decades to learn to take every plan to Him and be obedient unto His guidance, no matter how weird or unconventional they were, which has led to successes like I never could have dreamed possible.

If you wish for success in life, first take your plans to He who is the best Guidance Councillor, Jehovah. Then listen and obey Him. This is the sure fire recipe for success in life. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you El-Deah God of knowledge for blessing me with Your infinite knowledge of the best course of action to take in every aspect of my life. It prevents a lot of disaster and guarantees success. I praise You for this cherished treasure in the name of the wisest Teacher of all Jesus Christ. Amen

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

The Most Dangerous Thing.

 

                                        

For the love of money [that is, the greedy desire for it and the willingness to gain it unethically] is a root of all sorts of evil.1 Timothy 6:10 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

I have seen many try to reach the end of the rainbow and destroy their lives and those around them in the process. Of course we all know there is no pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. By the same terms there is never enough money for the greedy, they always want more and they do not care who they hurt in the process. The price they pay is a cold heart unto others and being loved by none in return. That is a sad trade off for things which cannot love you back.

As well, there is also the arrogance that comes from success. There is the attitude of I am a self made man, giving no credit unto Jehovah for the blessings. That is arrogant, rude, disrespectful and down right stupid.

A reason for this is because just as Jehovah has blessed you, so too can He take away the blessings in the blink of an eye. I have seen many in soup kitchens that at one time lived in mansions.

Success has ruined more people than failure.  It has been said that money is the most dangerous thing God can put into your trust.

Of the two, I choose Christ’s love over the love of dead material things which cannot love back. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Heseh (God is love) incredible blessing of sharing Your Divine love with me. This is indeed the greatest treasure of all. I exalt Thee in the name of He who emulated Your love for us while He walked amongst us 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 In and Rely

                             

Trust in and rely confidently on the Lord with all your heart And do not rely on your own insight or understanding. Proverbs 3:5 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

It takes time and experience to trust in the Lord, it does not happen all at once.

It has taken many decades and trials and tribulations to learn to trust in the Lord in every aspect of my life.

Now, I do not make decisions but rather trust in the Lord for His divine guidance.

Of course there will be times of testing when the Lord see’s how good of a student I am in what He has taught me. Sometimes I still fail but that is okay.

Do you remember when you were in school?

Did you pass every test that was given to you?

Of course not.

That is not bad it just means you have not learned the lesson good enough so it must be taught to you again.

So too it is with the Lord. When you admit your failure, apologize for it and am willing to learn from it Jehovah forgives you and proceeds to teach the lesson again. It will not happen the same way because then you are ready for it and that is not trust.

“Trust the past to God’s mercy, the present to God’s love and the future to God’s providence.” St. Augustine of Hippo

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Emunah (God is faithful) for blessing me with the patience and forgiveness when my faith in You was weak. Thank You that You have slowly and with forbearance strengthen my trust in You. I exalt Thee in the name of He who trusted You all the way to the cross Jesus Christ. Amen.

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