But God Isn’t.

BE STRONG AND WAIT

Wait for and confidently expect the Lord; Be strong and let your heart take courage; Yes, wait for and confidently expect the Lord. Psalm 27:14 The Holy Bible Amplified Version 

In todays instant society it is difficult to learn to wait. That is good because it teaches patience and faith.

It is a little better for my generation and those preceding me because we grew up waiting a lot, that was just a part of life.

However, it is still difficult waiting when it is not day or weeks but years that we have to wait.

Jehovah is not only a giving God but a God of wisdom.

Many times when we respectfully ask of Him and He does not answer right away it is because we are not mature enough to receive the gift.

Would you give a motorcycle to an eight year old child (I have seen many idiot parents do so with disastrous results and then blame everyone but themselves for their own stupidity)? Why not? Because they are not mature enough to handle and care for it that is why.

Every time we take matters in our own hands and attempt to get what we ask for instead of waiting for Jehovah it ends in disaster.

“The trouble is that I’m in a hurry, but God isn’t.” — Phillips Brooks

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Emunah (God is faithful) for always being so wise and faithful so as to bless me with Your blessings in the appropriate time and manner. Thank you that through this process You have taught me patience and faith in Your providence. May I be blessed to emulate this blessing of patience with all those that I encounter today. I praise You in the name of He who had super natural patience with His disciples Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

The Recycle Man

do not allow them to control you

Today I am grateful that the Lord had me sleep in as late as He did. Normally I get up early in the morning, however, today I slept in. This was a blessing.

Moms nephew came for a visit and was gone by the time I came in the house (I sleep out in our Tabernacle, a tent, which is where I enjoy communion with Jehovah, Jesus and the Holy Spirit every day).

He is nothing but trouble. He is a drug abuser, drunk, thief and trouble maker. She for some strange reason likes him. I would not spit on the best side of him if he had one.  I praise the Lord for the gift of extra pleasant sleep in order to avoid a spawn of the devil.

 

 

Every year I like to make Christmas cards out of photo’s of our cats (everybody adores them and really looks forward to receiving them) and share them with friends and important overworked  and underappreciated folks in our community.

These include police officers, doctors, nurses, personal support workers, fire fighters, ambulance attendants and the garbage collectors.

As well, I make a point to give special ones to pastors and Christian councilors (I believe they are the most over worked and under appreciated of them all.

The week before Christmas and the week after I forgot to give the recycle man his Christmas card and gift.

Today when looking out the widow I saw his truck drive by. He drives to the end of the street, turns around and collects the other side. I quickly got his gifts and card and dashed out to give them to him. He was very happy and we enjoyed a great conversation.

I am grateful for the Lord having me look out the window at that precise time and reminding me about the Christmas gift and card.

loving to each other

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireh (God provides) for providing me the opportunity to enjoy sleep rather than endure being in the presence of a wicked one.

Thank you my love for providing me with the opportunity to share some cheer with another to bring glory to Your Holy name.

I praise You in the name of He who refrained being the the presence of the wicked ones and who gladly enjoyed sharing with others Jesus Christ. Amen

Stay away from wicked men less they pollute your soul and take you to Hell with them. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Giving unto others enriches not only them but you as well. Joseph a son of Jehovah

For That I am Eternally Grateful

NEVER ENDING LOVE AFFAIR

My whole being follows hard after You and clings closely to You; Your right hand upholds me. Psalm 63:8 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

In my younger days I dreamt of living in a log cabin on land purchased. Through circumstances out of my control, it was taken away from me. At the time there was a lot of anger and bitterness because of it. However, today there is deep gratitude because if life was spent in that log cabin Jehovah would not have been able to accomplish numerous amazing thing in me and through me. These experiences drew me ever closer to Him. For that I am eternally grateful.

At one time there was a nice size nest egg being built up for retirement. Through circumstances out of my control the nest egg was crushed and destroyed. At the time I was bitter and angry. Now there is deep gratitude because that needed to occur in order for my Beloved Heavenly Father to teach me to depend upon Him alone. For that I am eternally grateful.

I have learned to cling close to Him in a loving relationship like no other can begin to match. For that I am eternally grateful.

God takes away the world, that the heart may cleave more to Him in sincerity.” — Thomas Watson

Prayer:Thank you Jehovah THEOPHILUS (friend of God) for blessing me with purging me of all desire for worldly things all of which cannot compare to the most awesome friendship there could ever possibly be, that with You, Jesus and the Holy Spirit. It is my most treasured gift that I am eternally grateful for. I thank you in the name of my best friend Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Prayer Must Be

A PRAYING MAN        

 

Prayer is the communion of the regenerated soul with its Divine Parent.

Prayer is God’s own instituted means of obtaining blessings from Him, the Fountain of life.

Prayer must be sincere—we must really be desirous to obtain the blessings we ask.

Prayer must be holy—for if we “regard iniquity in our heart, the Lord will not hear us.”

Prayer must be pious—seeking to obtain blessings, not for our own gratification merely—but for God’s glory. Prayer is a relief and comfort to the troubled soul. Prayer must be importunate—for it is the effectual, fervent prayer of a righteous man, that prevails.

Prayer must be submissive—asking only for what it is God’s will to bestow. Prayer must be in love— love for our Heavenly Father and prayer for our fellow man, whether they be in Jehovahs Divine family or not. Prayer must be reverent—for our God is a consuming fire.

Prayer must be humble—for we are base, and sinful, and unworthy to lift up our eyes to heaven.

Prayer must be persevering—for men ought always to pray, and not to faint.

Prayer must be particular—for generalities mean little or nothing.

Prayer must be universal—entering into everything, all the concerns of life, all the means of grace.

Prayer must be of all kinds—social, domestic, private, spontaneous but never ritualized for that is a stench and insult to our Heavenly Beloved. Prayer must be grateful—abounding in thanksgiving.

Prayer must be expectant—waiting and watching for answers.

Prayer must be believing—we must ask in faith. Prayer must be consistent with the Word of God —we may ask for everything God has promised.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Immanuel (God is with us) for the ultimate treasure, the Your loving gift of communion with You through prayer. It is a precious jewel that I carry close to me, not just in our morning and evening conversations but those which we share throughout the day. I praise You in the name of He with whom I deeply desire to walk with and talk with every day Jesus Christ, my best friend. 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

Talk About Arrogant.

 Then He told them a parable, saying, “There was a rich man whose land was very fertile and productive.  And he began thinking to himself, ‘What shall I do, since I have no place [large enough in which] to store my crops?’  Then he said, ‘This is what I will do: I will tear down my storehouses and build larger ones, and I will store all my grain and my goods there.  And I will say to my soul, “Soul, you have many good things stored up, [enough] for many years; rest and relax, eat, drink and be merry (celebrate continually).”’ Luke 12:16-19 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Talk about arrogant.

This guy takes full credit while giving Jehovah none.

Did the rich man make the land fertile and productive or did Jehovah?

Than should the rich man not have given thanks unto Jehovah and share with the less fortunate as Jehovah shared with him?

Who determines when we die, the rich man or Jehovah?

Than should he not have used his time wisely to store up treasures in Heaven rather that sit on his laurels?

Should he not have given unto his community as Jehovah greatly gave unto him?

Did the rich man celebrate his good fortune with others or did he greedily keep his parties for himself?

Should we not share with others our good fortune as Jehovah as blessed us with them?

How about you?

Do you share in your blessings ,both great and small, with others or do you greedily keep them for yourself?

Do you publicly praise Jehovah for His graciousness towards you or do you brag about it as if it was you who did the accomplishment?

Do you waste your retirement years going on cruises or other luxuries or do you take this opportunity to share your time and wisdom with the younger generation?

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireh ( God provides ) for blessing me with all of the abundant mental, physical and spiritual gifts provided for me on a daily basis.

May these be used as an opportunity to give thanks to You both privately and publicly and to be used to help those in Your family that are in need.

I joyfully give all praise unto You and request this blessing in the name of He who always used His Divine gifts for the benefit of others Jesus Christ. Amen

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

How can a Young Man Keep?

                                       

How can a young man keep his way pure? By keeping watch [on himself] according to Your word [conforming his life to Your precepts]. Psalm 119:9 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

He is the best life coach there is, His name is Jesus.

Do not forget that because He walked amongst us Jesus has gone through everything we have gone through and so much more. So, who better to go to when you are experiencing problems?

Now when Jesus is your best bud does it not sense that you would eagerly want to know everything there is about Him?

Just as you want to spend time with your earthly friends should you not so much more desire to spend time with your Heavenly bestest friend?

Pick a scheduled time every day to not just read the Bible but also to spend time talking with Him (not just about your problems either. Ask Him to reveal more of Himself to you so you will be blessed with loving Him greater and greater.).

Speaking from personal experience you will never be prepared for the awesome, majestic revelations He will share with you. When He does you will understand the phrase of Your heart dances with joy and your heart dances with love. You will yearn to spend more and more time with Him instead of wasting your time in the world which will lose all fleshly satisfaction unto you.

“If ye keep watch over your hearts, and listen for the Voice of God and learn of Him, in one short hour ye can learn more from Him than ye could learn from Man in a thousand years.” — Johannes Tauler

Prayer: Thank you Holy Spirit El Deah (God of knowledge) for the precious gift of Your continuous knowledge of You, Jehovah and Jesus. It is always wonderful the beautiful attributes of youse that You share with me. I exalt You in the name of the best teacher Jesus Christ. Amen

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

But for Scars.

                                                                    

And if [we are His] children, [then we are His] heirs also: heirs of God and fellow heirs with Christ [sharing His spiritual blessing and inheritance], if indeed we share in His suffering so that we may also share in His glory. Romans 8:17 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

When in a boxing match the opponent will always land a few shots, many times leaving scars for the rest of your life.

So too it is with the Christians battle.

Make no doubt about it we are in a constant battle when we become Jehovahs children.

Yes we are in continuous battle with satan and his minions but we are also in ceaseless battle against society (more so in the west than in communist countries from my experience). The anti-Christ that goes by the label of liberals are really anti-Christs in their every belief. By anti- Christ it means they are against the morals set down by Jehovah and by default by Christ. Many times they will leave deep scars from battles we both win and lose.

The most severe battles of course are within our own families. They know us best so they know how to cut us deep and many do so with complete gusto. They will cut the deepest.

I have met many who have gone through seminary that are more in line with satan than with Christ and know little more than theology and nothing of having a loving relationship with Christ.

I see many who serve themselves by pretending to serve Christ, this is especially true with missionaries. They are there more to glorify themselves than to share the gospel. And, with many missionaries I have met, they live off of others by pretending to be serving Christ.

“God will not look you over for medals, degrees, or diplomas, but for scars.” Elbert Hubbard

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Christ Helech ‘Olam (The Lord my King Forever) for blessing me with the gift of suffering for You as You suffered for me. I know that when You see these scars You shall look at them, smile at me and say the words I long to here from Thy precious lips: “Well done good and faithful servant.” I give thanks for this grace in Your suffering name. Amen

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