Why Did You Doubt?

 

Immediately Jesus extended His hand and caught him, saying to him, “O you of little faith, why did you doubt?” Matthew 14:31 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

When we are baby Christians it is natural to doubt Christ because we have little to no experience with Him.

As we mature in our walk with Him our faith (which means trust) in Him is to grow until it is as solid as the rock we stand upon. To do otherwise is a willful act of disobedience unto Him. Now there will be times of testing. When we fail and repent the sin is forgiven.

But, the lesson will be continuously repeated until our faith is solidified so we can take the next growth in our relationship with Him.

This pattern continues all the way to our death bed when we have solid faith that He is taking us to the second Heaven ( no we will not be with Christ when we die. That only occurs after that Judgement Day. To preach that we will be in Heaven with Christ immediately after death is a lie).

To doubt Christ is a insult. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Immanuel (God is with us) that You are always with me, guiding me, teaching me, protecting me and providing for me with Your immeasurable love.  May I never doubt the One I know for sure loves me more than anyone else ever could. I praise You in the name of He who walks beside me every day Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Worry is Practical Atheism.

                                              

So do not worry about tomorrow; for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own. Matthew 6:34 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

It is a disease that plagues us all. It’s name is worry.

We worry about our health, we worry about our finances, we worry about our relationships, we worry about our country. The list goes on.

When we are Christians worry is a sin. That is right, worry is a sin. It indicates we do not have faith (which means trust) in Jehovah to take care of us. Because we do not believe in His promises we are calling Jehovah a liar.

Now when we are baby Christians it is normal to have little faith because we have little experience in our walk with Christ. However, those of us that have walked with Christ for numerous years and decades that still have no trust in Him shows a lack of interpersonal relationship with Him, it is shallow.

Worry is practical atheism put into practice. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Mephalti (The Lord my Deliverer) for always delivering me from all my worries and cares. I exalt The in the name of He who fed the five thousand and delivered them from their cares in that moment 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

Why are Doubts Rising?

                        

And He said, “Why are you troubled, and why are doubts rising in your hearts?” Luke 24:38 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

There have been so many times when I called out to Jehovah when trouble was near (like where am I going to get rent money – He blessed me with a contract to more than pay for all bills and put some away for a rainy day- or what is going to happen to me when I retire- He spent three hours explaining to me through Bible verses that He was going to make sure I lived a comfortable life).

Some times the answer was quick and very affirmative.

Sometimes there was waiting. Through it all He was teaching me to have faith in Him.

Just remember this Christian: Jesus loves you, Jesus cares, Jesus is always there. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah El Roi. You are the God who sees for blessing me that You see all my trials and tribulations. Thank you that You take the appropriate action in Your wise time in Your wise way to lovingly help me resolve the problems. I exalt Thee in the name of He who helped so many when 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

He Must Ask For

                                    

But he must ask [for wisdom] in faith, without doubting [God’s willingness to help]. James 1:6 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

For any and all situations in life the first course of action a Christian take it taking it to the Lord, asking for His advice. We must ask in faith, which means trusting, that our request shall be answered. After all our Father in Heaven only desires what is best for His children.

Sometimes, in fact most times, the answer does not come instantly. This is a big problem for most folks today because they are used to instant everything. But in waiting for the Lords answer He is teaching us not only patience but to expand our faith in Him.

Many times the answer will come in pieces not all at once. This is because we need to take baby steps due to the problem being so big.

So for example we will say you are having a problem with someone. First you need to resolve problems in your own life and then will be prepared for the proper course of action to take with dealing with the other soul.

When we ask Jehovah for wisdom we must obey what He says whether we like it or not. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Rabbi (God our Teacher) for walking amongst us so You understand everything we go through because You have already experienced it. Because of this You bless me with the wisest advice because You are the wisest teacher of all who only wants what is best for me because You love me so very much. In Your all discerning name I exalt Thee. Amen

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

We Should be Unafraid to Doubt.

                                           

But they were startled and terrified and thought that they were seeing a spirit.And He said,“Why are you troubled, and why are doubts rising in your hearts? Look at [the marks in] My hands and My feet [and see] that it is I Myself. Touch Me and see; a spirit does not have flesh and bones, as you see that I have.” Luke 24:37-39 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Think of it?

Here was the living breathing Christ standing before His disciples. They saw Him and heard Him yet still doubted it was Him.

Do you think that is absurd?

I do not. How would you feel if you were there?

There has been so many times in my Christian walk that have been filled with doubt. Sometimes it was the direction in which the Holy Spirit was leading me in service unto my Heavenly King, even though, it had been made bluntly clear to me.

There have been many times when enduring intense trials and tribulations I doubts Jehovahs strength to get me through it even though He made it point blankly blunt He was walking through it with me.

There having been numerous times when in spiritual or physical famine that I doubted Jehovahs providence for me even though there were countless experiences in the past to reflect upon to believe Him and to trust Him.

Now on the other side of it our faith in Him become more solidified in our hearts and minds.

Any Christian that says they have never doubted Jehovah is a flat out liar. Any Christian that tells you it is a sin to doubt Jehovah has never truly been put through the fire, they know not of what they are speaking.

“If ours is an examined faith, we should be unafraid to doubt….There is no believing without some doubting, and believing is all the stronger for understanding and resolving doubt.” Os Guinness

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Bara (The Lord Creator) for blessing me with Your loving patience during the times of doubt and for using these experiences to cement my faith ever stronger in You. You are such an awesome Father in Heaven to this child You love so much here on earth. I praise You in the name of He who never doubted You Jesus Christ. Amen

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

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.

All Things are Possible

                                       

But Jesus looked at them and said, “With people [as far as it depends on them] it is impossible, but with God all things are possible.” Matthew 19:26 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

All thing are possible with Jehovah but not all things are probable.

So we will say you want money to go to school to become a veterinarian but Jehovah wants you to become a waitress. He will not grant you that for which He has not made you for.

However that does not take away the fact that He can and does accomplish the improbable in our lives.

If you had of told my mom when I was ten years old what Jehovah had planned for my life she would have laughed so hard she would have been in tears. It would not only have seemed improbable but down right impossible.

Jehovah works in His way not ours. It is our duty to have faith (trust) in Him that His ways are always what is best for us, even if we do not understand it and to obey His guidance.

“Do not let your happiness depend on something you may lose… only [upon] the Beloved who will never pass away.” — C. S. Lewis

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireh ( God provides ) for blessing me with what I need, not what I desire in my walk with You. Thank you for providing me with the necessary resources to serve You every day throughout the day so as to give glory and praise unto You and to be a light in the dark world that guides the lost unto You. I exalt You in the name of the light of the world Jesus Christ. Amen.

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