Are You Ready for Your

 

BURN LIKE THE SUN

“Do not judge others, and you will not be judged.  For you will be treated as you treat others.The standard you use in judging is the standard by which you will be judged. Matthew 7:1-2 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation 

Yes it is your duty to point out others weaknesses and faults but not the right to be judge and jury. You are to help them in their weakness and ignorance with love and compassion not hard heartedness . 

Do you believe you have the right to be judge and jury over others?

If you hold grudges or attempt to take revenge, your own failure is certain. I know, I used to take great pleasure in tormenting anyone who crossed me. But in the end it always boomeranged on me. 

Do you have a self appointed critic attitude?

Do you want to get back on me with a vengeance?

Soon you will be angry with everyone and be very lonely and bitter. Holding grudges is like swallowing acid to punish others. Ir will soon slowly, painfully destroy you.

Are you self righteous?

Do you believe you are better than anyone else?

If you are proud and find pleasure when others fail there will come a time when YOU fail and everyone will laugh at you. . You will be humbled.

Do you believe you are self sufficient taking credit for what God has given you?

If you think you are secure in your possessions and abilities, your situation is sure to change.

At one time in my life I had a good job, lots of money and lived the good life. Without warning the factory closed, my money depleted so bad I had to walk knee deep in snow to collect pop bottles and beer bottles to get enough money to buy a loaf of bread and jar of honey. That is what I lived off of for a week. Thankfully that situation only lasted for a few months I could not pay the hydro so being cut off there was no heat in the house. It was warmer outside than in that house. It was the lowest point of my life and still is branded in my mind.

So do not be egotistic and think you are so high and mighty, that you are secure in your riches. You WILL be brought down in the blink of an eye.

Prayer: Jehovah our gracious God. Thank you for the numerous blessing You have so freely blessed us with.                                      Please guard my heart that it does not become arrogant and take credit for the blessing You gracefully give us.                                   Please bless me not to be judge and jury but rather someone who comes along side the ignorant and help them eliminate their wrong manner of behavior.                                                                   In the name of the One who never judged the adulteress woman Jesus Christ we pray. Amen.

The manner in which you judge others, Jesus shall judge you. Joseph a son of Jehovah

May Gods sunshine always bless you with brightening your day with His love, joy and peace.

It Has Robbed Them Of

GUARD YOUR INPUT

Watch out that no poisonous root of bitterness grows up to trouble you, corrupting many. Hebrews 12:15 New Living Translation Bible

I have seen hatred and bitterness age many before their time. It has robbed them of the joy of life, it has robbed them of peace of mind. It has robbed them of contentment in life. It seems to me that bitterness is one of the biggest thief of all, yet so many worship it in their daily lives.

Bitterness always starts out small like a peppermint seed, yet if you allow it to take root it slowly chokes out all the vegetation around it.

I know some folks that have held grudge over small insignificant acts for over sixty years. It has spread to every aspect of their once vibrant life so bad that if they ever smiled it would crack their face. It is very pitiful to see. Many times the ones they are bitter towards are either dead or have moved away and know nothing of the hatred towards them. Many of the folks were big and strong but this vile disease has sucked the vitality out of their bodies as well as their minds and spirits. Now they are empty, pitiful, angry folks that have allowed this disease to destroy their lives. “

We cannot live with bitterness because it will first manifest itself in our spirit, then in our emotions, and finally in our bodies.” — Tom Drout

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Rapha (God my healer) for generously applying Your Divine healing balm which purged the vileness of bitterness from my heart. I adore You in the name of He who was and is the greatest healer of them all, Jesus Christ. Amen

May Christ bless you with love, joy and peace today and every day.

On the Alter Of

And do not give the devil an opportunity [to lead you into sin by holding a grudge, or nurturing anger, or harboring resentment, or cultivating bitterness]Ephesians 4:27 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Unfortunately, one of my bad dispositions is letting go of a grudge. Being more mature I have learned to place it at the feet of Jesus. He heals the wound and avenges the wrong doer.

Many times however, it is played out in my head where they are shamed while yours truly look like the hero. This childish fantasy is surely played out in all of our heads. Rather than dwell on the wound others have inflicted from personal experience, it is better to listen to old hymns that praise Jehovah. This fills the heart with joy rather than anger and bitterness.

Now of course the wound may need to be healed by going to righteous Christian councilors to help deal with the lingering pain.

Those that nurture the grudge are cultivating weeds of hate and anger which suffocate the beautiful plants of love and joy. They become mean, bitter angry old men and women in their later years.

Of course this devastating disease cause great harm to both the mental and physical body.

It also affects the relationship with Christ. Because He is love and there is hate and anger in the heart the two are not comparable.

I have seen more than a few who have sacrificed their physical and mental health on the alter of bitterness and grudges. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: PleaseYAHWEH-Ropheka (God our healer) heal the cuts both superficial and the gougingly deep ones that have been inflicted upon me.

Please empower me to concentrate on all Your loving attributes instead of foolishly wasting my time rerunning the event over in my head where I glorify myself while shaming the offender. That is such a wast of time and is very childish.

I sincerely request this in the name of He who heals all wounds Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Thank Him For Breaking Your Heart.

FOLLOW YOUR WAYS

 

I am feeble and utterly crushed.  I groan in anguish of heart Psalm 38:7-9 New International Version

I used to be very spiteful and hold a grudge a long time. You did not want to cross me.

Then through an excoriating process that took years of heart ache and Christian counseling I learned to let go.

Now I have learned the wisdom of forgiving (that does not mean you do not hold those accountable for what they did) and leaving justice in Jehovahs hands. Sometimes it is still difficult and that is when I earnestly pray for the strength and wisdom to follow Jehovahs way of doing things

I have learned that He provides plenty of opportunity for those to repent and if they refuse His hand is very heavy on the perpetrators.

Meanwhile, I have a heart filled with peace, love and joy.

.

If through a broken heart God can bring His purposes to pass in the world, then thank Him for breaking your heart.” Oswald Chambers                                            

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Ropheka (God our healer) for blessing me with healing many deep painful cuts others have caused in my heart. Thank you for depending upon You to always make things right. I praise You in the name of He who healed so many when He walked amongst us Jesus Christ. Amen.                                                                                                          

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