It Will Be Given to Him.

Christ, WILL LEAD

If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him. James 1:5 New King James Version

Our Heavenly Beloved does not belittle you when you ask for guidance (you know like: What’s the matter are you stupid or something, oh come on, figure it out yourself, how many times must I explain this to you).

He encourages you to question both Him and His guidance in your life.

The more you respectfully question Jehovah the more he reveals Himself to you. The more he reveals Himself to you the more you love Him and respect Him which will make you worship Him all the more.

 

The more you respectfully question His guidance in your life the less problems you will have which will make you more grateful to Him which will make you worship Him all the more.

It is not a one off experience, it takes a lifetime.

I know this certainly is true in my life.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Rabbi (God is my teacher) for being so patient with this occasional dunce when I am slow to learn. Thank you my Beloved for enlightening me in the divine way in my life. I extol you in the name of the greatest rabbi ever Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

God Looks Down From Heaven.

FOLLOW YOUR WAYS

God looks down from heaven upon the children of men, To see if there are any who understand, who seek God. Psalms 53:2 New King James Version                                                                                                

Remember when we were children and we were taught that Santa Claus was watching to see if we were naughty or nice. Of course now we realize that is just a fairy tale.              

Jehovah on the other hand is very real and He is constantly seeking those who are looking for Him and desire to enjoy a richly blessed relationship with Him.                          

 

In order to be a member of His family we must obey His rules.                                          

That is why it takes a lifetime commitment to learning of Him and His ways and of obeying them.      

                                                                                                                   

This means a daily commitment to reading His word and be open to being obedient to what He is teaching us.

A non Bible reading Christian is not a Christian.  Joseph- Anthony: Green   

                                                                                                                       

This means a daily commitment to honest and sincere prayer with Him. 

                                                                                                                 

Prayer is just talking with the most intimate lover you can ever be blessed with. Joseph- Anthony: Green                                                                                                  

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Yahweh (God of His people) for blessing me with seeking me out and adopting me into Your sacred family. I extol You in the name of Your most cherished son Jesus Christ. Amen.

                                                                                                                          

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

More Than Asked For.

GRADITUDE AND CREDIT

These articles are dedicated to the wonderful and amazing way Jehovah Jireh (the Lord our provider) answers prayers. It is a simple journal that I would like to use as an example for others to list their sincere prayer requests and then how our Beloved answers them.                                                                                                                                       

It will amaze you and create a heart of gratitude and respect for our gracious Jehovah Heseh (Our God of love).

“Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. Matthew 7:7 New King James Version                                           

Yesterday I prayed the Lord would bless me with a good teacher and that my mind be open to what was being taught concerning a problem on my computer.

The teacher was very good. She explained things in a simple easy relaxed manner which made it easy to understand.

As well as solving the annoying problem she taught me some programs which help me a lot and got rid of some annoying ones.

She showed me a program to use to help an elderly lady living in a seniors home that does not speak our language. This site gives simple sentences the nurses can use to communicate with her.

 

She showed me how to get on the libraries WiFI, which I did not even know they had for free.

She showed me a site with a lot of freebies, which is deeply appreciated by a cheepo like me, to help with my writing.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireh (God our provider) for blessing me with a wise teacher who abundantly provided me with so much more useful information than I was expecting. I praise You in the name of He who abundantly provide the wine at the grooms wedding Jesus Christ. Amen.

 

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

You Can do Everything.

God is already there.

I know that You can do everything, And that no purpose of Yours can be withheld from You. Job 42:2 New King James Version

Sometimes what you would like to do you cannot accomplish.

Sometimes what politicians would like to do they cannot do.

Sometimes things churches would like to do, they cannot do.

But, if Jehovah wants it to be done, it will be done. Nothing or no one can stop Him.

There were all kinds of obstacles that were in the way of Him accomplishing what He desired in my life. He swatted them away like flies.

Put your faith in Him and be amazed at what he can and will do in your life.

Go out and look at the stars at night and just think, if Jehovah can create all of those stars do you really think He cannot accomplish His desire for you in His service or help with problems in your life?

 

He has done so many things in my life that I believed were impossible that I could write a book about them.

 

It may not be accomplished in a day or week, it may take years.

For me some things He did not accomplish my requests for years.

That was good because He taught me so much in that time. One thing He taught me was to have faith in Him and to have patience.

I always thought I was a patient man until becoming a Christian. Then I learned what real patience really is.

 

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Elohim (God the creator) for being so patient and determined to mold this, at times, stubborn child into the obedient child You have desired for me to be. You have accomplished numerous amazing things in my life and through my life. I is a treasured honour to be one of Your works in progress. I exalt You in the name of the most patient of molders of lumpy clay Jesus Christ. Amen.

Who Does Not Change?

trust in God

Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows. James 1:17 New International Version

Jehovah does not change like a politician looking for votes.

How many of them change once in office?                                                               .

Jehovah does not change like peoples loyalty that can change with the wind.

How many slap you on the back today and put a knife in your back tomorrow?.

Jehovah does not change just to be popular or politically correct like politicians, movie stars, TV stars or music stars.

How many of them take their stands because they believe in what they are doing is right for society compared to how many of them are doing it to be seen on a pedestal?

He is the same as he was yesterday, as He is today and as He will be tomorrow. He gives His gifts because He loves us.

Now that is solid ground that I want to stand on and depend upon.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Heseh (God of love) for Your unending, unchanging love that blesses me each and every day. It is my most cherished treasure. It is with deepest gratitude that I thank You in the name whose love for me took Him all the way to the cross Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

The Korean and the Japanese.

GENTLE STREAM WINDING THROUGH FOREST

Prayers Answered.

These articles are dedicated to the wonderful and amazing way Jehovah Jireh (the Lord our provider) answers prayers. It is a simple journal that I would like to use as an example for others to list their sincere prayer requests and then how our Beloved answers them.

It will amaze you and create a heart of gratitude and respect for our gracious Jehovah Heseh (Our God of love).

The older women likewise, that they be reverent in behavior, not slanderers, not given to much wine, teachers of good things. Titus 2:3New King James Version                                                                                      

I prayed for my precious little Japanese sister to be blessed with a good mentor to help her through her difficult times of being recently unemployed.                                                 

When she attended her friends church the pastor invited her to her apartment for a meal (in Asia being asked to share a meal is very important and is only for close family and friends so this was unexpected). During the meal my Japanese little sister and the pastor talked for hours and the Korean pastor gave her wise advice and great encouragement.                                                          

It is our Christian duty to be mentors to those who are not as mature in the walk with Christ. We are to lead by example and to help those struggling overcome their difficulties.

Who are you mentoring?                                                                                                             

Editors note: In Asia when there is a large age difference the older is called grandfather or grandmother. If the age difference is not large they are called uncle or auntie. If the age difference is close it is big brother or big sister.   

                                                    

My precious little Christian sister is close to my age but younger so I address her as little sister while she addresses me as big brother.                                                                     

Wouldn’t it be nice if that is the way we in the west addressed each other?                        

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Rohi (God is our Sheppard) for guiding a younger sheep to an older,  sheep in Your precious flock to guide her, encourage her and strengthen her. I extol You in the name of the most admirable Sheppard of all Jesus Christ. Amen.        

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

It Never Ends.

BE SATISFIED

Let your conduct be without covetousness; be content with such things as you have. For He Himself has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.” Hebrews 13:5 New King James Version

covetousness: feeling or showing a very strong desire for something that you do not have and especially for something that belongs to someone else Merriam- Webster dictionary

I have met many that have sacrificed their families and their health because of the disease of covetousness. They spend so much time working just because of their insatiable lust for more, more, more. It is an addiction. It never ends. Then one day when they are old before their time and the children have moved away and no longer keep in contact with the parents who were strangers to them because the spent their lives addicted to their lust they look around and see it was all for nothing.

I have seen many homes filled with many expensive inornate  objects yet felt empty because there was no love there.

They have wasted away their lives and are as phony as a three dollar bill.

I cannot wait to get away from them.

I have met people who use old pickle jars to drink out of and their furniture looks like they picked it up out of a junk yard. Yet, they are very content with their lives because they walk close with Jesus. Their hearts are hearts of gold. I look forward to spending time with them.

Which one are you?

Prayer: Please Jehovah Jireh (God our provider) bless me to be content and appreciative with Your abundant blessings in my daily life. Please help me to stay focused on being rich spiritually in Your world instead of the worthless material wealth in this world. I humbly beseech You in the name o the richest king Jesus Christ. Amen.

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