The Tragedy of Life

VOICE OF GOD

For I know that the Lord is great Psalm 135:5 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

The longer we walk with Christ, the more we get to know Him (although, we will never really get to know everything about Him because there is just too much of Him to ever have the time to learn it all).

The more we get to know Him the greater He becomes to us. This greatness it exhibited in His love, power, wisdom and provision of which there is none to compare. \

“The tragedy of life and of the world is not that men do not know God; the tragedy is that, knowing Him, they still insist on going their own way.” William Barclay  

Jehovah reveals Himself to us in many wonderful and awesome ways every day. Because of this revelation we should be drawn towards Him and the deeper the desire to obey Him. After all, it is because He loves us that He wants the best for us.

Therefore, should we not follow the advice of the all knowing God to direct every aspect of our lives?

The reason fools reject Jehovah is because of arrogance and greed. The advice Jehovah blesses them with does not suit what they selfishly desire in their lives so they foolishly reject it and arrogantly follow their own thoughts (which are influenced by the world around then and he who influences the world is satan) to attain what they greedily want. The end result of this pathetic attempt is a worthless life with a huge hole in their heart because that can only be filled with Jehovahs love (which He only blesses those who belong to Him with).

There is no such thing as atheist, there is only intentional idiots. Joseph a son of Jehovah      

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah GELAH RAZ (Revealer of Mysteries) for all of the amazing ways in which You reveal the mystery of You to me. It is truly awesome the manner in which You reveal Your majesty, wisdom, love and compassion. I exalt You in the name of Your awesome Son Jesus Christ. Amen

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

It Was For My Benefit.

FOLLOW YOUR WAYS

Surely it was for my benefit that I suffered such anguish. In your love you kept me from the pit of destruction; you have put all my sins behind your back. Isaiah 38:17 New International Version                 

Many times in my life I wanted to go my own way. In this foolishness I was heading for disaster. Jehovah allowed me to travel the path only so long and then brought circumstances to me which brought about much anguish. At the time I called out to Him and cried asking Him why He was doing this to me. I mistakenly believed He was punishing me. In reality He was guiding me away from destruction.                                   

When I repented (which means not only being remorseful but to stop doing those destructive things) I felt clean as He washed my sins from me.                                             

Then came the time to take huge steps of faith in obedience to where he was leading me and to what He intended for me to do.                                                                                   

The process involved smashing the old me like a vase and remoulding me on His divine potters wheel to be the servant He had intended for me to be.                                                      

Each step of the way I am sure it brought praise to His name in what I accomplished for Him which is why He did it.   Yes it was to bring others into His kingdom through me obedient service to Him but it was also for my benefit. When I see those now who stayed on the same path as I was on thirty years ago I praise my Beloved for rescuing me from such horrible destruction.                                                                                               

Gods preparation for greatness in His kingdom is often filled with difficult preparation Os Hillman                                                                       

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Rohi (God is our Sheppard) for guiding this sometimes wayward sheep of Yours back into Your divine flock that is heading to a Heavenly pasture. I apologize for occasionally being an obstinate child which needs Your firm discipline to redirect him on Your chosen path. I exalt You in the name of the greatest Sheppard Jesus Christ. Amen.                                                                                                                 

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