Good Shall Come to Thee.

CHRIST'S LOVE

 God gives wisdom, knowledge, and joy to those who please him. But if a sinner becomes wealthy, God takes the wealth away and gives it to those who please him. Ecclesiastes 2:26 Holy Bible New Living Translation.

Have you ever heard the old saying:”Money comes, money goes and in the end we are still unsatisfied.” It is oh so true.

I have seen many chase the illusive dream of having enough money only to be unsatisfied and want more. It is not the money they want but what the money can buy. Money cannot buy happiness is very true.

On the other hand, those that live a Godly life which is pleasing to Jehovah are always blessed with peace, love, joy, wisdom and purpose in their lives.

I know, having lived in both worlds. Doing Jehovahs will guarantees that not only will our physical daily requirement be met but our spiritual cup shall over runneth in abundance.

“Live to please God, and He will breathe on thee His peace. Seek His glory, and He will make thy heart His home. Do His will, and thereby good shall come to thee.” — F. B. Meyer

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah El Deah (God of knowledge) for blessing me with Your treasure trove of amazing knowledge. It has enriched my life beyond expectation. Please bless me with the opportunity and resources to share this precious gift with others. I humbly, gratefully request this in the name of the wisest of the wise 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.

The Yeah Buts.

 Because of these [sinful] things the [divine] wrath of God is coming on the sons of disobedience [those who fail to listen and who routinely and obstinately disregard God’s precepts] Colossians 3:6 Holy Bible, Amplified Version

We have all experienced the yeah buts.

Someone instructs us to do something we do not want to do and we all come up with the yeah buts. Yeah but _____ as an excuse for not doing as we are told to do.

Someone tells us not to do something and we come back with yeah but__________ for reasons we will do as we like.

The worst offence of course is when we are continuously disobedient unto Jehovahs direction in our life. We do so at our own peril.

If Jehovah directs us to do something it is for our own good or to advance His kingdom.

If Jehovah directs us not to do something it is because it will turn out bad for us or for others.

We will pay for our arrogant disobedience in painful fashion.

I have experienced it and it most certainly was not an enjoyable experience. Sad to say, I was a slow learner and it took decades before submitting to Jehovah with no thought of anything but obedience unto Him.

“Today we are overboard on belief but bankrupt on obedience.” — Author Unknown

Prayer: Please Jehovah Helech ‘Olam (The Lord our King Forever) help me, as You always have, to be an obedient child of Yours. I know that Your call to obedience is for my own good as well as for Your honour. It is my greatest joy to bring glory and honor to the one I love the deepest. I humbly request this in the name of Your most obedient son 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.

It is Impossible for a Christian

A STOUT HEART

This is why we work hard and continue to struggle, for our hope is in the living God. 1 Timothy 4:10 Holy Bible, New Living Translation

It is impossible for a Christian to give up. We all work hard at being acceptable children to our Heavenly Father.

Yes there are going to be constant struggles.

Christianity is one war that continues until we reach Heavens gate. Just when one battle is finished and we rest a little another one begins. So many times we feel exhausted and defeated. We desire to give it all up and walk away. But, as Christians when we go before our Heavenly Father, He blesses us with strength, wisdom and the weapons to continue the fight. The longer we are in this battle the stronger our hope is in our Heavenly Father.

Now hope here is not the same as hoping to win the lottery. Rather it means confidence in Our Heavenly Fathers care, provision and deliverance and the eternal Heavenly home He has prepared for us.

“God never promises to remove us from our struggles. He does promise, however, to change the way we look at them.” — Max Lucado

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ‘Ori (the Lord is my Light) for enlightening me with Divine insight into the reason for the constant battles that must be fought on a daily basis in every Christians life ( including mine). This gift encourages me on when all seems lost to victory which glorifies You. I joyously praise You in the name of He whose empty grave brought eternal victory to oh so many. 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.

They Talk Big but Act Little.

 Our actions will show that we belong to the truth, so we will be confident when we stand before God.1 John 3:19 New Living Translation Bible

Do not allow the second  guessors to get you down, they talk big but act little.

Every time I have accomplished something there seems to be the second guessors coming out of the wood work. They tear everything apart as inadequate and or the wrong way. All the while they refuse to lift a finger to help. I just inform them point blank (because that is the only way they will listen) “If it is not good enough for you do not tell me show me the better way. If you cannot then shut up. I have work to do.” or: ”This is the way Jehovah has directed me to do the work. Are you saying your way is better than Gods? Talk about arrogant. Tisk, tisk.” then continue on with the work Jehovah has directed me to do in the manner in which He has directed me to do it.

The nay sayers shut up and leave me alone. Most consider me to be very rude when I do this but it is they that are rude and this is the only way to get the work done without being bothered by the Negative Nellies.

Now do not get me wrong, I am more than willing to listen to constructive criticism but not to those that just take delight in tearing down others work.

“The human race is divided into two classes — those who go ahead and do something, and those who sit still and inquire, “Why wasn’t it done the other way?”” — Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ELOHIM YAKOL (God, the Most Able) for blessing me with the visions to serve You and the skills and resources to enable me to accomplish Your great tasks to bring glory to Your name and to bring the lost to You. I revere You in the name of He who enabled His disciples to feed the five thousand 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.

The Formula for Success in Life.

 Your godliness will lead you forward,  and the glory of the Lord will protect you from behind. Isaiah 58:8 Holy Bible New Living Translation

Here is the formula for success in life.

Godliness means to imitate Jehovah. It means to conform your life to the laws and wishes of Jehovah. Gods Law (Jehovahs Law) is this:

Do not do unto others as you would not like them to do unto you. This is the criminal law but sometimes you can do things unto others that is not criminal in the government courts but is violating the Law in Jehovahs courts. For example it is not against the law to cue jump but it is in Jehovahs court.

Do unto others as you would wish them to do unto you. In government court you are not obligated to help someone but you are duty bound (which is an act of love) in Jehovahs court. So for example, your elderly neighbour cannot shovel snow from their driveway in the winter or cut their grass in the summer. You are not obligated under government law to help them but you are duty bound (which is an act of love) by Jehovahs to help them.

Love others as much as Jehovah loves you and see how meaningful and fulfilling your life is. Joseph a son of Jehovah When you do this, Jehovah always has your back and will always take care of you.

Prayer: Please Jehovah Emunah (God is faithful) direct my words and actions to emulate You in all of my thoughts, words and deeds so as to glorify You and to guide the lost unto Your loving arms. I genuinely implore You in the name of He who perfectly emulated You 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

But Pray for A

DIVINE STRENGTH

. For His loving kindness prevails over us [and we triumph and overcome through Him], And the truth of the Lord endures forever. Praise the Lord! (Hallelujah!) Psalm 117:2 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

It took many decades to believe this.

There was those terrible yeah buts that always came in like a flash when Jehovah asked me to do something for Him. If you think Moses was good at giving excuses at the burning bush, you should have heard some of mine.

We all go through it.

Jehovah is patient with us.

He begins with most of us by asking small things and enlarging them as our faith in Him enlarges as well. Now there are times when He will ask us to jump over canyons but we need to have faith the the jump will be completed on the backs of angels the Lord sends to help in the jump as well as His mighty hand. I have been through a few of them and He was always there with me, through it all, leading me to triumph both for His glory and for my joy and amazement at just what we accomplished together.

“Be brave. Do not pray for the hard thing to go away. But pray for a Bravery to come that’s bigger than the hard thing.” Ann Voskamp

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ‘Uzam (The Lord is our Strength in Trouble) for blessing me with strength to not only endure the hard times but to grow through them to mould me into and every stronger child of Yours. I thank you in the name of the strongest of them all 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.

Should Magnify Our

WORK IN PROGRESS

For our momentary, light distress [this passing trouble] is producing for us an eternal weight of glory [a fullness] beyond all measure [surpassing all comparisons, a transcendent splendor and an endless blessedness]! 2 Corinthians 4:17 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Sometimes the only way to learn is through the hard times.

In the easy times we tend to take things more lightly, especially concerning our obedience to Jehovah.

My life is a testimony to that.

It is in the hard times I learned the most and grew the most. They definitely were not enjoyable but I praise Jehovah for putting through them.

One good aspect of this type of learning is our appreciation for our Heavenly Teacher for the manner in which He teaches us the lesson. He does so in a manner in which the lesson will never be forgotten.

The other is that we more mature Christians use these lessons to pass on to those not as mature as us, hopefully to prevent them from making the same errors as us. For those going through the lessons, it encourages them to submit to the teachers instructions.

“Affliction comes to the believer not to make him sad, but sober; not to make him sorry, but wise. Even as the plow enriches the field so that the seed is multiplied a thousandfold, so affliction should magnify our joy and increase our spiritual harvest.” — Henry Ward Beecher

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ‘Uzam (The Lord is our Strength in Trouble) for blessing me with so many afflictions. Although they were not enjoyable at the times, they were necessary to mature me in my walk towards You in Heaven. Thank you for blessing me with the strength to not only endure them but to prosper because of them. I praise You in the name of He who endure the worse affliction of all for me 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
