Do Not Doubt My.

                                        

I have loved you just as the Father has loved Me; remain in My love [and do not doubt My love for you]. John 15:9 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

All of us who have walked the Christian walk have from time to time faced uncertainty whether Jesus loved us or even if He was real. As we mature we grow more and more assured of it.

Many times we go through intense trails and tribulations, sorrows and times of famine. We wonder whether Jesus has deserted us, whether we have angered Him and cry out to Him.

We are met with silence.

Or, so it seems.

When these events have passed and we reflect upon them we can see Jesus’ firm but gentle hand guiding us through them as well as providing provision during them.

It has occurred to me on numerous occasions and only caused my faith in Him to grow stronger and stronger.

“As sure as God puts His children in the furnace he will be in the furnace with them. Charles H Spurgeon

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Heseh (God is love) for blessing me with a Divine love which none other can compare. Thank you that You will never leave me nor desert me even when many times it seems as if You are absent from me. I praise You in the name of my ever present best friend Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Go with Them

 

                                          

Get up, go downstairs and go with them without hesitating or doubting, because I have sent them Myself.” Acts 10:20 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Sometimes in life we encounter someone who the Lord desires for us to go to. Because we do not know them or where they want us to go we hesitate even though we feel the Lords urging to go with them. When the Lord says go, we are to go.

One time when I was unemployed I felt the Lord informing me to go to a certain town. I knew no body there. As soon as I got off the bus a man approached me and inquired if I was seeking working and when informed yes was told to put my gear in the back of his truck and let’s go. I did not know him or where we were going. It ended up being the best contract ever in that vocation of thirteen years.

We must not go on our own impulses but only by the certain voice of Jehovah, especially for our own safety.

Even though we do not see the end of the trail if Christ is guiding us there we must travel it in faith that His unseen hand is guiding along the way. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Please Jehovah Kal El (voice of God) bless me to always be attentive and obedient unto Your voice when You are directing me unto others. Please bless me with discernment as to whether this is Your voice or the the scheming voice of the wicked one (satan) which will be leading me to disaster. I humbly request this in the name of He who listened and obeyed Your voice all the way to the cross 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

Enables Us to See

                                                          

Once more Jesus addressed the crowd. He said: “I am the Light of the world. He who follows Me will not walk in the darkness, but will have the Light of life.” John 8:12 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Have you ever walked through a house in the dark at night? It is very common to trip on things or to bang into things. We can get seriously hurt.

So too it is with those walking in the worlds darkness. They are blind to the wiles of scam artists and cultists that enslave them body and soul. They fall for con artist with their jobs, which cheats them out of their money, their relationships, which gets them into abusive relationships, their finances which scams them out of their money (and yes this includes banks), their politicians which scam them into voting for them so they can get into power. Once in power they break every one of their promises with complete impunity.

Those who follow Christ’s lead are guided around these traps and avoid much hardship and crushing of the heart in their lives.

Just as we need a light to walk through the forest during the night so too do we require Christ’s light to guide us through life. Joseph a son of Jehovah

“In darkness there is no choice. It is light that enables us to see the differences between things; and it is Christ who gives us light.” — Mrs. C. T. Whitemell Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Ori (the Lord is my Light) for blessing me with the light that has guided me way from so many disasters and towards success in the way You have Divinely prepared for my footsteps to travel. I praise You in the name of the light of the world Jesus Christ. Amen

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

All Things are Possible

                                       

But Jesus looked at them and said, “With people [as far as it depends on them] it is impossible, but with God all things are possible.” Matthew 19:26 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

All thing are possible with Jehovah but not all things are probable.

So we will say you want money to go to school to become a veterinarian but Jehovah wants you to become a waitress. He will not grant you that for which He has not made you for.

However that does not take away the fact that He can and does accomplish the improbable in our lives.

If you had of told my mom when I was ten years old what Jehovah had planned for my life she would have laughed so hard she would have been in tears. It would not only have seemed improbable but down right impossible.

Jehovah works in His way not ours. It is our duty to have faith (trust) in Him that His ways are always what is best for us, even if we do not understand it and to obey His guidance.

“Do not let your happiness depend on something you may lose… only [upon] the Beloved who will never pass away.” — C. S. Lewis

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireh ( God provides ) for blessing me with what I need, not what I desire in my walk with You. Thank you for providing me with the necessary resources to serve You every day throughout the day so as to give glory and praise unto You and to be a light in the dark world that guides the lost unto You. I exalt You in the name of the light of the world Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

 Trust In and Rely

                             

Trust in and rely confidently on the Lord with all your heart And do not rely on your own insight or understanding. Proverbs 3:5 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

It takes time and experience to trust in the Lord, it does not happen all at once.

It has taken many decades and trials and tribulations to learn to trust in the Lord in every aspect of my life.

Now, I do not make decisions but rather trust in the Lord for His divine guidance.

Of course there will be times of testing when the Lord see’s how good of a student I am in what He has taught me. Sometimes I still fail but that is okay.

Do you remember when you were in school?

Did you pass every test that was given to you?

Of course not.

That is not bad it just means you have not learned the lesson good enough so it must be taught to you again.

So too it is with the Lord. When you admit your failure, apologize for it and am willing to learn from it Jehovah forgives you and proceeds to teach the lesson again. It will not happen the same way because then you are ready for it and that is not trust.

“Trust the past to God’s mercy, the present to God’s love and the future to God’s providence.” St. Augustine of Hippo

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Emunah (God is faithful) for blessing me with the patience and forgiveness when my faith in You was weak. Thank You that You have slowly and with forbearance strengthen my trust in You. I exalt Thee in the name of He who trusted You all the way to the cross Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

There is Only Two Choices.

                                                 

 If it is unacceptable in your sight to serve the Lord, choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve: whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the River, or the gods of the Amorites in whose land you live; but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord. Joshua 24:15 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

“There are only two kinds of people in the end: those who say to God, ‘Thy will be done,’ and those to whom God says, in the end, ‘Thy will be done.’ All that are in Hell, choose it. Without that self-choice there could be no Hell. No soul that seriously and constantly desires joy will ever miss it. Those who seek find. To those who knock it is opened.” — C. S. Lewis

There are only two types of folks.

One type says I will do what I want and it will be done my way. As a consequence they are missing out on so much of life.

Who knows us better: us or Jehovah?

We go on feelings and intuitions which are easily misled. Indeed, they are the devils playground because he can easily manipulate them.

So say someone wants to be a mechanic and Jehovah has designed us to be an engineer. Try as hard as we may we will never be a mechanic which leads to disappointment.

When we follow Jehovahs guidance and become and engineer our lives are fulfilled.

The other thing is those outside of Christ are easily led astray by others (especially celebrities ) whose advice is for the masses not for the individual which is bad advice and they preach lies like blaming others instead of taking responsibility for our own actions. This only leads to more trouble and disappointment.

When we are lead by the Holy Spirit His advice is supreme, individualized and it is for our own good.

Going our own way leads to Hell, going Jehovahs way leads to Heaven. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Christ Helech ‘Olam (The Lord our King Forever) for the honour of being Your free willed servant. Thank you for blessing me with the Holy Spirit to teach me and assist me in becoming more of an obedient child of Yours every day. In Your majestic name I do humbly pray. Amen.

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

He Will Never Fail You.

                                  

For we walk by faith, not by sight [living our lives in a manner consistent with our confident belief in Gods promises] 2 Corinthians 5:7  Holy Bible, Amplified Version

One of the most difficult things to do as a Christian is to walk the unknown. Many times we cannot see where we are going or what purpose there is to the walk.

Faith means trusting and through it all we trust Jehovah and He never lets us down.

This is difficult at first and many times still is no matter how long we have been walking with Him.

That is the difference between us and the world.

The world believe in themsleves while Christians believe in Jehovah.

The world looks to so called experts for help but they themsleves are confused (you can always find point counter point on any topic) but we trust Jehovah because we know there is no counter point to His advice and guidance.

Many go to therapists or worse TV stars for advice (it is interesting that when you look at their private lives, their is in just as much a mess if not more than ours. And, that is who you are going to get council from?)

Speaking from numerous experiences Jehovah has never failed me and has prevented a lot of hardship in my life because I walked by faith with Him.

How is your walk doing?

“Be assured, if you walk with Him and look to Him, and expect help from Him, He will never fail you.”  George Mueller

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-‘Immeku (The Lord Is With You) for blessing me with your consistent walk with me in daily life, for your wise guidance and providence. I exalt Thee in the name of He who walked amongst us 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
