He Blesses Us With The

SPIRITUAL STRENGTH

It is God who enables us, along with you, to stand firm for Christ.2 Corinthians 1:20-22 Holy Bible, New Living Translation

We cannot stand alone when we are Christians. The devil is too willy and strong.

The world is too overpowering to even attempt such a thing.

However, when we stand upon the rock of Christ nothing can or ever will defeat us. He blesses us with the strength, wisdom, grace and resources to a successful journey to His Heavenly home.

As well, in time of need, He will bring along those encouragers that invite us to not give up but rather give in. Give in to the power of The Holy Spirit which dwells with in us.

We will not succeed in all of the endeavors that come our way but they will be used as teaching lessons to continue on.

The other reason we will occasionally fail is to teach others later through our failure and how Jehovah picked us up and encouraged us on.

“You will never stand alone while standing on the Word of God.” Kathryn Souza-Wine

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ‘Izoa Hakaboth (Lord Strong and Mighty) for blessing me with Your Divine strength and might as I travel about this day and every day. May I be blessed to share these with those who are in a time of weakness and need so as to strengthen them as You have strengthened me. I humbly request this in the name of the strongest, mightiest of them all 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

Have Nothing More to do With Them.

 When He gives quietness, who then can make trouble?Job 34:29 Holy Bible New King James Version

 I have a very contentious neighbor. He can go off like a rocket with little to no provocation by me. He is a constant thorn in my side. Indeed many times some very un-Christian words come out of my mouth during the conversation as he continuously pushes my buttons.

This problem was taken to the Lord and asked the proper manner in which to handle the situation without me exploding at him as he irritated me. The above verse jumped out at me during the next mornings Bible Verse as well as;

If people are causing divisions among you, give a first and second warning. After that, have nothing more to do with them. Titus 3:10 New Living Translation Bible

This makes perfect sense.

These types of folks are not interested in anyone’s opinion but their own and care not about anyone but themselves. Trying to talk things out with them is like talking with a wall. I do not waste my time talking with walls.

I do not even speak with him if he tries to talk with me, I keep silent and ignore him. It prevents a lot of trouble.

Now there is a lot more peace in my life.

If you refuse to be respectful enough to listen to others opinion then do not waste my time. Go talk with yourself. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Please Jehovah ‘Uzam (The Lord is our Strength in Trouble) bless me with peace, wisdom,grace and strength when encountering those who delight in causing grief to others. I sincerely request this in the name of who kept His peace when dealing with arrogant detractors and unfair accusers towards Him, Jesus Christ. Amen

Wishing you a house full of sunshine, hearts full of cheer and love that grows deeper each day of the year. Welsh blessing

Have You Noticed How Much

 Blessed [morally courageous and spiritually alive with life-joy in God’s goodness] are you when people hate you, and exclude you [from their fellowship], and insult you, and scorn your name as evil because of [your association with] the Son of Man. Luke 6:22 Holy Bible, Amplified Version

Have you noticed how much hate there is in the western world today for those that live Christian lives with Christian morals? We are vilified on social media and socially isolated in every day life. It is like we have some disgusting plague like leprosy. What is truly heartbreaking is when this happens with in the Christian community.

Why do folks hate us so much?

Could it be that seeing us pricks their conscience and they know their lifestyle is wrong?

Could it be that seeing us causes the fire of hate to flame in every molecule of their body and mind because they know that their lifestyle is condemning them to Hell?

From my experience yes, those are the two main reasons for their unjustified hate of those of us that are obedient children of Jehovah.

The further society gets from the truth, the more it will hate those who speak it. George Orwell.

Prayer: Please Jehovah Emet (God of truth) bless me to always speak Your words of truth with wisdom, grace, meekness and fortitude to not back down when challenged by the wicked ones. I sincerely request this in the name of He who is the epitome of truth 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.

True Faith Produces A.

action

For just as the [human] body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works [of obedience] is also dead. James 2:26 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

If you have faith in Christ prove it.

When we accept His gracious offer to be members of His family that does not mean we are to sit on our hands and await His return. We are free will servants.

As such, He has specific chores for us to do. Many times they do not make sense at the time. That is where having faith (which means trust) in our King must take place. He begins with little steps and gradually urges us on to bigger and bigger ones. This is not a one off event but rather a daily one. Have faith in Christ and be a part of an amazing journey like you could never conceive.

“True faith produces a life full of actions, not a head full of facts.” Author Unknown

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireh ( God provides ) for providing me with ample opportunities to exhibit my faith in You through the actions You guide me to take. I exalt You in the name of He who trusted You all the way to the cross, Your most beloved Son Jesus Christ. Amen

May the light of Christs love shine brightly in your heart

It Has not Crept Up.

 

 Do not cast me off nor send me away in the time of old age;do not abandon me when my strength fails and I am weak. Psalm 71:9 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Have you ever heard the old saying: “Old age has crept up on me.”

It has not crept up on me. It has come with numerous calling cards. I was reflecting upon this recently. I still go for long walks but now find there is a need for frequent stops for rest. Working in the garden all day doing heavy manual chores is a thing of the past. Even volunteering has taught me old age has not come a knocking but is already in my house ( my body). I used to be able to walk all day in the seniors home going from living area to living area. Now my knees will not take it. Working for Habitat for Humanity is challenging. I used to work very vigorously for ten hours straight in very difficult circumstances being a tree planter with no breaks but now there is a need frequent rests while doing things that were a breeze just a few short years ago.

“I thought growing older would take longer.” Unknown

The upside of it of course is the deeper wisdom Jehovah has blessed me with all these years. I love sharing it with the younger ones ( that are willing to listen).

Now there is less confidence in my abilities and complete confidence in Jehovahs unending abilities to take care of me.

There is so much less stress now. Now I can say with complete confidence that I know Jehovah will never desert me nor leave me.

We spend more time walking together and talking together ( no that is no senility it is a very real presence and conversation) which is deeply cherished.

So for all of you old fogies that despair of getting old I say I revel it my aging because it is so sweet, indeed, even Divine.

And, the most cherished of all, is having faith that there really is a heavenly home waiting for me where there is no such thing as an old dilapidated body but an awesome one which will be regenerated by my loving Heavenly Father.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Emunah (God is faithful) that You are faithful unto Your Divine vows to care for me in my old age. I exalt You in the name of my Faithful King whom shall greet me to the Heavenly Home He has faithfully promised awaits me upon my departure from this world Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Things Which Have Been Confined.

 

‘Call to Me and I will answer you, and tell you [and even show you] great and mighty things, [things which have been confined and hidden], which you do not know and understand and cannot distinguish. Jeremiah 33:3 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

When we ask of Jehovah to open our eyes to revelations and His awesome magnificence of boy does He deliver.

He has pulled back the curtain to reveal amazing things in His creation which reveal His awesome beauty and attributes. The world does not see these things because they are in the material world. It constantly amazes me both what He shows me and that those around me do not see them.

The Lord blesses me with insight to the events that are unraveling around us and their significance. When I try to explain it to those walking in the world they believe me to be absurd. It astounds me that they cannot see what is so obvious. Many times it is if they are in a different dimension that me.

It is so wonderful to meet one who walks with Christ and that we see these same things. It is some of the greatest conversations I have ever enjoyed. It is as if we cannot stop talking about them and sharing them with each other.

Do not be shocked when you try to speak of Jehovahs incredible revelations He has blessed you with and those around you cannot see them nor understand them.

A great way to illustrate this is when I came home from serving the Lord in Asia and tried to explain what it was like living in a different culture that thinks differently than us. At first they all laughed at me and said that was nonsense. Then a few months later it became headline news ( of course one of the things I am referring to is the ghost cities that dotted the land around where I lived).

So too it is with those who are not of Christs. It is foolishness to them and absurd.

Those of us that are Christ centered in our thinking have revelations that are absurd to the world Joseph son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Kabodhi ( The Lord my Glory) for revealing Your magnificent glory to me and for communicating Your awesome wisdom to me. I extol Thee in the name of my glorious King Christ Jesus. Amen

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