Captain of This Ship

 Please forgive me Jehovah ELOHIM YAKOL (God, the Most Able 2 Corinthians 9:8 ) for allowing my thoughts to foolishly stray and see storms instead of keeping me focus on the helmsman that steers the ship through the storms.                                           

 Please Holy Spirit help me to have trust in my strong, capable Captain of this ship, Jesus Christ. When I focus on He who has navigated so many through tremulousness hurricanes successfully it brings peace, confidence and courage to face the crashing waves.                                                                                                   

 I give thanks and sincerely request this in the name of the Captain of my lifes ship, Jesus Christ. Amen                                     

Whatever is beautiful, whatever is meaningful, whatever brings you joy, may you be blessed with an abundance of it this every day this year. Joseph a son of Jehovah

I Give All My

For he has rescued me from the kingdom of darkness and transferred me into the Kingdom of his dear Son, who purchased my freedom and forgave my sins. Colossians 1:13 – 14 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

 I believe in the Lord my God, and I will be able to stand firm. 2 Chronicles 20:20 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Some words have been changed to first person so it is us personally that He is speaking to. This makes them far more effective and powerful.

The Holy Spirit is the best cleaner of all. When we daily surrender our dark thoughts to Him that satan places there, He will sweep them clean out of our heads and replace them with the sweet brilliant light of Jehovahs love.

When there is a battle in our mind and it seems as if the devil is going to win, call in the Holy Spirit. The demons run with sparks flying off their feet when the Holy Spirit enters into the fray.

When it appears as if satan is going to win the battle for my mind, I call upon the ultimate Warrior to come to my defense, The Holy Spirit. Satan and his lackeys run like their pants are on fire when He enters the ring.  Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Gador Milchamah (The Lord is Mighty in Battle Psalms 24:8 ) that You are the ultimate fighter and winner in the constant battle for my mind. I tremble to think of where it would go if not for Your protection. I exalt You in the name of the ultimate victorious Warrior King, Jesus Christ. Amen

May you be blessed with abundant joy in your heart filled with love and your life overflowing with laughter every day this year. Joseph a son of Jehovah This article and photo @ 2020 Joseph a son of Jehovah. All rights reserved. Used only by permission of the author.

Believe It or Not There Are

 If we claim we have no sin, we are only fooling ourselves and not living in the truth. 1 John 1:8 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Believe it or not there are folks that live as if they believe they are sinless.

Whenever the do something wrong they quickly make up excuses for why A: that it not what really happened,

B: it was not their fault or

C: it is okay because everyone else is doing it.

Trying to convince them of their wrong doing is exhaustive.

I have found the best last response to these lies is :

“You may lie to me and if you repeat the lie enough, even convince yourself, but you cannot con Jesus.” Joseph a son of Jehovah

and then walk away.

It shocks even the so called “unbelievers”.

Many times we commit sins without even knowing it. That is why we need to be sensitive to the Holy Spirits guidance and quickly repent of the sin before its roots grow too deep. Then, it is a real battle to conquer them. With the help of the Holy Spirit this can be accomplished.

Pull out your sins when they first occur to prevent them from taking root unless you want a real battle on your hands. Joseph a son of Jehovah

The beautiful thing is though, that when we repent ( which means we are to admit what we did, admit it was wrong, ask for forgiveness, stop committing the sin and make restitution for the offence committed- so if we sold something from someone we are to give it back), Jehovah is quick to forgive us.

But if we confess our sins to him, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all wickedness. 1 John 1:9 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Prayer: Please Jehovah Mekaddishkem (Exodus 31:13 The LORD that Sanctifies Me) bless me with the Holy Spirits help to convict me when I grieve You and the help me repent so as to remain a child of Your with whom You are well pleased. I sincerely request this in the name of He whose blood brought me redemption Jesus Christ. Amen

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

We Are Not To

 After the Lord had finished speaking to Job, he said to Eliphaz the Temanite: “I am angry with you and your two friends, for you have not spoken accurately about me, as my servant Job has Job 42:7 1 John 1:9 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Jobs friends were guilty of giving bad advice. But, they did so out of love for Job. They did so to try to make things right in his life. I am sure he realized this and that is why he asked Jehovah to forgive them.

We all receive bad advice from others who have good intentions.

We are not to hold it against them but rather be grateful to them that they cared enough to offer the advice.

We are to forgive others for their flawed advice and ask Jehovah to prevent us from giving it. When we do give it we are to sincerely repent.  Joseph a son of Jehovah

We are as well, to ask Jehovah to forgive them for the bad advice as we are to forgive them.

On the flip side of the coin we are to apologize to those we have unintentionally given bad advice to as well as ask Jehovah to forgive us and to bless us with the means to reconcile with the offended ones.

Prayer: Please Jehovah El Emeth (Psalms 31:5 LORD GOD of Truth) forgive my well meaning friends when they innocently provide faulty advice to my problems. They are but simple folk compared to Your wisdom. Please bless me with the Holy Spirits guidance to always provide Divine guidance when called upon by others. I humbly request this in the name of the best advice giver there ever was Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Thank You for Your.

 Thank you my Beloved Jehovah Heseh (God is love 1 John 4:16) for being such a loving and gracious Father to this child of Yours.

Thank you that when I accept Your Son as my Savior and dedicate my life to serving Him, You wash away all my sins like a waterfall gently cascading over me on a hot day.

Thank you that it is impossible to ever be blessed with a perfect love like the one You offer me. Thank you for Your amazing perfect love.

Thank you that You are always there with me through thick and thin. Thank you that nothing can ever separate me from Your awesome love. Thank you for the new life You have blessed me with.

Because I am in Christ [that is, grafted in, joined to Him by faith in Him as Savior], I am a new creature [reborn and renewed by the Holy Spirit]; the old things [the previous moral and spiritual condition] have passed away. Behold, new things have come [because spiritual awakening brings a new life]. 2 Corinthians 5:17 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Thank You in the name of Your greatest gift to me, Jesus Christ. Amen.

Today and Every Day.

Oh my Beloved El Emunah (Deuteronomy 7:9 The Faithful GOD ), I need You in my life today and every day.

Please bless me with Your gentle healing touch when others inflict me with cruel words or actions today.

Please bless me to be forgiving as You are forgiving unto me.

Please bless me with Your forgiveness when I am cruel in my words and actions today and guide me to repent to those I have offended either intentionally or unintentionally.

Please constantly remind me to depend upon Your guidance instead of foolishly depending upon my own or others flawed intelligence.

Thank you for Your healing balm upon my wounded heart as You are the best doctor there is.

Thank you that there is always a purpose in the wounds and aches and pains that come my way. They are for teaching me, maturing me or correcting me when I am going astray. You allow these because You love me too much to leave me as I am and desire for me to be the child of Yours You know I can be. It is because of these my Lord that my love for You grows ever deeper every day and we grow ever closer every day.

Thank you for that, the best blessing You can give me above all other blessings.

I humbly say this prayer in the name of my best friend Jesus Christ. Amen

One Whose Heart Breaks When

 I live in the high and holy place with those whose spirits are contrite and humble. I restore the crushed spirit of the humble and revive the courage of those with repentant hearts. Isaiah 57:15 Holy Bible, New Living Translation

A contrite heart means one whose heart breaks when they sin.

Now do you notice that Jehovah lives in a high and holy place?

That can only mean Heaven.

Do you notice that those with a contrite heart live there with Him?

When we are naughty and then repent (which means we admit what we did, admit it was wrong, apologize for it, ask for forgiveness and make restitution where possible) then Jehovah takes our spirits up to Heaven to be with Him, if only for the moment of when we repent.

I believe this is a sign from our loving Heavenly Father that our sins are truly forgiven.

The Holy Spirit instills in us all that which is right and that which is wrong. We receive the proper rewards for the decisions we make. Joseph a son of Jehovah.

See how He says He will revive those of a repentant heart.

I know from my experience I felt crushed with remorse, weak and feeble. After repentance my heart felt as if a heavy burden had been lifted from it and danced with joy and gratitude for the forgiveness that was blessed upon me by my Heavenly Father (even when those that we offended were not so generous nor forgiving).

“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 Jesus Goelekh (Isaiah 49:26&60:16The LORD Thy Redeemer) that when I repent, You gently redeem me back into Jehovahs holy family. I praise You in Your kind, loving name. Amen

May love be in your life, may hope be in your heart and may peace be in your every day walk with Christ. Joseph a son of Jehovah

I Have Great Joy in Knowing

Today, my Beloved, I choose to receive my joy and strength in You.

Joy in knowing You love me with a Heavenly love as I seek opportunities to bring joy to Your treasured heart.

I know that in the cold dark world out there the devil reigns in bringing chaos and difficulties to everyone’s life but his aim is on the bulls eye of my heart because it belongs to You. He will do everything in His power to destroy our loving relationship.

I have great joy in knowing You are a force field that his evil wicked arrows cannot pierce when I place me confidence in You. Please bless me to never be in such a hurry I cannot be loving and respectful to others even when they are not respective unto me.

Please bless me to be forgiving instead of holding petty grudges and resentments.

I know that I am weak and gullible and as such an easy target for satan .

I also know that no one is as strong nor as intelligent as you. Therefore my loving Poppa in Heaven will protect me from the manipulative schemes of the wcked as I venture through this day. For that my heart dances with songs of praise for You through out the day.

Thank you my love for blessing me with all that is needed to live a victorious life in You and through You this day and every day.

It is in the name of the best Sheppard that guides this little lamb of His to Your Heavenly home that I humbly ask for these blessings and joyfully praise You them, 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

Thank You That You Are

Dear Father,

Thank you that You are a compassionate, merciful God You . I humbly bow before You my Love at Your feet, asking You to bring mercy where judgment has been earned. I am deeply sorry for allowing my heart to be led astray by my own selfish desires and the things of the world, for the ways I have turned away from You, and sinned against You and You alone.

Although I have been a disobedient child of Yours and my sinfulness deserves punishment, You forgive and pardon those who humble themselves before You. Where judgment is warranted, You give mercy.

Forgive me my loving Father and be merciful to me. Soften my heart, God, to be tender towards You, to seek your face, and to long for your presence every moment in my life.

I meekly request this in the name of He who graciously shed His priceless blood for my forgiveness Jesus Christ

Amen.

May you be blessed with abundant joy in your heart filled with love and your life overflowing with laughter every day this year. Joseph a son of Jehovah

A Prayer to Forgive Those

 

Make allowance for each other’s faults, and forgive anyone who offends you. Remember, the Lord forgave you, so you must forgive others. Colossians 3:13 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Father I deeply desire to forgive other as You forgive me.

Help me to forgive those in my care when they are selfish, ungrateful and abusive towards me. I need this to prevent me from having my heart filled with hatred and bitterness. If the heart is filled with this then it is impossible to care in a loving manner.

Help me to stay focused on the fact that in serving them, I am serving You and You are always appreciative of my compassionate efforts.

do not allow them to control you

But, Father just as You specify that repentance must come before forgiveness so too must there be repentance before the healing is possible.                 

Please send the Holy Spirit to convict them and bring them unto repentance less their attitude condemn the to Hell.

Thank you that You are always there for me to cry out my anguish to when those in my care are selfish, abusive and ungrateful. I humbly request this in the name of He who forgave the repentant sinner on the cross beside Him, Jesus Christ. Amen 

Those who refuse to repent are also those who will continue the abuse. Joseph a son of Jehovah

 

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