Lived Out in Me.

NOT TRY, TRUST

 The apostles said to the Lord, “Increase our faith [our ability to confidently trust in God and in His power].”Luke 17:5 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

There is a reason we need to humbly request the Lord to increase our faith.

The number one reason is because as we increase our faith (which means trust) in our Beloved we get to know Him ,love Him and worship Him more and more thereby getting ever closer to Him.

The number two reason is that when our faith increases so too does our confidence in the Lord whenever satan comes a knocking. Having confidence in the Lord terrifies satan and his minions. Number three is because when others observe our faith it is a great witness to the power of Christ. This is a powerful witnessing tool.

Show me the way, Lord, let my light shine As an example of good to mankind; Help them to see the patterns of Thee, Shining in beauty, lived out in me. —Neuer

Mind you, we cannot increase our faith without suffering but in the aftermath of our sufferings we are every deeper in gratitude for Jehovahs loving providence. This brings us closer to Him not just on special occasion but in beautiful daily communion with Him. What a blessing that is.

“God delights to increase the faith of his children. We ought, instead of wanting no trials before victory, no exercise for patience, to be willing to take them from God’s hands as a means. Trials, obstacles, difficulties, and sometimes defeats, are the very food of faith.” — George Müller

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Emunah (God is faithful) for being faithful unto this loving child of Yours that You have delivered the right amount of trials and tribulations, sorrows and pain to bring me ever closer to You in faith, understanding and love. I exalt You in the name of He who suffered these in extremes all the to and including the cross for me Jesus Christ. Amen.

Christ blesses us with love, peace and joy. May you be blessed with many opportunities to share these with others today.

Struggling With the Fact.

LAUGH AT FOOLS

 And the babbling fool [who is arrogant and thinks himself wise] will come to ruin. Proverbs 10:10 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

I have seen many braggarts brought low and shame hangs upon their neck like a heavy brick. Those who once looked down on those they thought were beneath them quickly and with no warning become one of them. Fortunately I have nothing to do with social media because it does not seems too social to me. It is more like a platform for shallow folks to puff up themselves to the rest of the world. It seems pitiful to me. In reality they are very shallow, fragile folks. Criticize them and then see how mature they are then. If you really want to hurt them, just ignore them.

“Narcissistic people are always struggling with the fact that the rest of the world doesn’t revolve around them.” ~Unknown

On the other hand, there are those like myself that does not care what he says, she says or they say. I care about what Christ says about me. That does not make me arrogant but rather constantly listening to and obeying the Holy Spirits guidance to persistently improve myself.

The humble will see Heaven, the proud will see Hell. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Bara (The Lord Creator) for creating in my heart a desire and means to worship He who is the only one worthy of being worshipped, You. May I never worship anything or anyone (including myself) other than You because they are all inferior to You. I thank you in the name of my idol Jesus Christ. Amen

The gift of love, the gift of joy, the gift of peace, these are the greatest gifts that can be given. They are given in abundance to all those in Christs family by our Heavenly loving  Father. May you be blessed with plentiful opportunities to share these with those around you today.

Not Until We Have Become Humble and Teachable

follow your ways

 The [reverent] fear of the Lord is the beginning (the prerequisite, the absolute essential, the alphabet) of wisdom; A good understanding and a teachable heart are possessed by all those who do the will of the Lord; His praise endures forever. Psalm 111:10 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

To fear the Lord in this context means to respect Him.

There have been so many times in my life when I see someone new at a job doing something wrong or doing it in a difficult way. I try to teach them the correct way or an easier way and they look at me with contempt like they know so much more than me. That is very rude arrogant and disrespectful. The end result for them is of course disastrous.

So too it is with us.

When the Holy Spirit tries to teach us a better way at life and we arrogantly contemptuously ignore Him and do the exact opposite, not only is the result disastrous but it is arrogant and disrespectful towards Him. Not only must we listen to Jehovah when He speaks to us but we are to be obedient as well. We must admit and submit to His supreme intelligence over our feeble minuscule understanding. Otherwise, what is the sense of Him speaking with us?

“Not until we have become humble and teachable, standing in awe of God’s holiness and sovereignty…acknowledging our own littleness, distrusting our own thoughts, and willing to have our minds turned upside down, can divine wisdom become ours.” — J. I. Packer

Prayer: Please Jehovah Kal El (voice of God) bless me to always listen, understand and obey Your voice because I know You only want what is best for me because You love me and care about me. I sincerely request this in the name of He who always listened to His Heavenly Fathers voice Jesus Christ. AMEN

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

What Agreement is There Between

BURN LIKE THE SUN

What agreement is there between the temple of God and idols? For we are the temple of the living God 2 Corinthians 6:16 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

What we desire more than Jehovah is an idol.

When we attempt to bargain with Jehovah to give us what we what to give to our idols He will not listen. As long as our idols are not appeased there is no peace in our hearts. So say it is the final game for the Stanley Cup and you senselessly attempt to bargain with Jehovah that if your team wins, you will go to church every Sunday for a year (you have no intention of upholding your end of he bargain to begin with)). Jehovah will not listen and indeed cause the opposite of request to come to fruition and laugh at you.

Too many folks attempt to play God for a fool and end up being the fool themselves. Joseph a son of Jehovah

When on the other hand you humbly, respectfully request that He lead you into a deeper, loving obedient relationship with Him then He will bless your heart with love, peace and joy. Believe me, I have been there done that on both side of the coin.

“When you are ready to stop bargaining, He will lead you to a place of peace and blessings.” — Author Unknown

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Hamelech ( Jesus my Lord King ) for blessing me with teaching me the foolishness of attempting to bargain with You. It is an honour to willingly serve You out of love. Thank you that because of this You bless me with unlimited peace and Divine blessings. I exalt You in Your majestic name. 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

The Longer You Delay.

DEPEND UPON THE LIVING WATERS

Therefore do not let sin reign in your mortal body so that you obey its lusts and passions. Romans 6:12 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Being a gardener I know full well that when a tree see becomes a twig you pull it out immediately. Otherwise, with some tree’s it is almost impossible to remove.

So too it is with sin.

The longer you dwell in the sewer of sin, the more it seeps into the pours of your body and spirit. This is a slow physical and spiritual death.

Now some say I will sin when I am young and sow me wild seeds. Then, I will repent when I get older. They are living a fools dream. I have witnessed a small seed not only germinate in a soul but also this leads to others sins and more and more sins until it completely consumes the man or woman. Just listen to a drug addict and most will share with you how it started out small and was fun. Then it became a cruel slave master. The slave master brought with him other slave masters who were just as unmerciful (more addictions). It becomes a living Hell. It amazes me that most drug addicts prefer this Hell rather than become clean (which is why all the free drug clinics are useless unless the addicted want help).

Almost all of my habitual sins began small and over time became deep rooted in my per sona. It took some serious and painful burning off of the dross by the Holy Spirit to cleanse me of them. We need to be constantly attentive to the Holy Spirits guidance in our lives to avoid these destructive temptations every day.

There are still a few that Jehovah allows to keep me humble and keep me reliant upon Him instead of myself.

“The longer you delay, the more your sin gets strength and rooting. If you cannot bend a twig, how will you be able to bend it when it is a tree?” — Richard Baxter

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Mephalti (The Lord my Deliverer) for sending the Holy Spirit to help deliver me from poisonous sins which will destroy the Holy Spirit with in me if they are permitted to take root. I praise You in the name of He who yanked out the worlds sins with His blood 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

Knowing That God Has

REPENT OR ELSE

All wrongdoing is sin, and there is sin which does not [involve] death [that may be repented of and forgiven]. 1 John 5:17 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

There is no conning Jehovah. Saying you are sorry just so you do not face the consequences of your wrong doing means nothing to Him. You are just trying to manipulate Him without addressing the wrong doing. It is insulting and disrespectful.

A false apology is worse than no apology. Joseph a son of Jehovah.

When with a sincere heart we humble ourselves before Him and repent of the wrong doing, we are forgiven.

Now repent means we admit what we did, admit it was wrong, apologize for it and stop doing it. Therefore Jehovah will guide us (through the Holy Spirit) in the proper manner and time to repent to those we have done wrong to( Especially, those which belong unto His family. He takes that sin very personal.

When Saul encountered Christ on the road to Damascus Jesus asked Saul why he was persecuting Him, not His followers, which means Christ takes it personally). Sometimes we cannot reconcile with the injured party because it is beyond our means (maybe they have died) but when we repent with pure motives He is quick to forgive the deed.

When we have committed a sin against Jehovah, the Holy Spirit will guide us in the way in which to reconcile with Jehovah.

There is no forgiveness without repentance. Joseph a son of Jehovah

When we have truly repented of our sins, Jehovah is quick to forgive us.

”There is no greater state than to get up from your knees knowing that God has forgiven every sin you’ve ever committed.” ―R.C. Sproul

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Elohay Selichot (God Of Forgiveness) for the blessing of Your Divine loving graciousness of forgiving me when I have repented of committing offences against either or You or others. It blesses me not only with peace of mind but with the assurance of our continuing eternal love affair. I praise You in the name of He who shed His blood so my sins could be forgiven Jesus Christ. AMEN

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

Begin with Me.

work-in-progress

 My people, who are called by My Name, humble themselves, and pray and seek (crave, require as a necessity) My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear [them] from heaven, and forgive their sin and heal their land. 2 Chronicles 7:14 The Holy Bible Amplified Version  

This is the sequence of seeking reconciliation with with Jehovah.   

First you must humble yourself before Jehovah. Do not attempt to speak with Him as an equal or as if you are superior but rather as a repentant naughty child

Then you must have a deep remorse for your sins as a child who was naughty and has brought great grief unto the relative they love so much (I say relative because many do not have loving parents but everyone has a relative they have a deep loving relationship with). This must be done to continue with a desire improve our deep loving relationship with our Heavenly Father.

Finally we must turn from our wicked ways less they destroy this most important of all loving relationship.                

All wickedness has selfishness at its core. Joseph a son of Jehovah                   

We must turn from me first to Jehovah first. Then Jehovah will listen to our prayers. Then Our sins will be forgiven. Then our spirit will be healed first above all others.

“Lord revive Your church and begin with me.” — Chinese Christian

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Go’el (The Lord is my Redeemer) for redeeming my body, spirit and mind when I sincerely repent unto You. I exalt You in the name of He whose cherished blood made this all possible Jesus Christ. Amen.

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