I Feel Uncomfortable

We must remember what the Lord Jesus said, ‘We are more happy when we give than when we receive.’ ” Acts 20:35 The Holy Bible The New Life Version

CHRIST FIRST, OTHERS SECOND

Speaking personally, I feel uncomfortable when folks give me things.

On the flip side, I love to give to those who are needy and worthy. I know it gives glory to Christ and brings great joy to the receivers and sometimes brings them into Jehovahs Holy family.

Then, there is the ripple effect.

I have found it is one in ten. One man or woman out of ten that is helped it effects them to the point where they now have a giving heart as well. It is small for sure but over a lifetime those small ripples add up to tsunamis waves of giving.

The difference is that earths tsunamis bring destruction, tsunamis of love bring great love, joy and relief.

“Remember there’s no such thing as a small act of kindness. Every act creates a ripple with no logical end.” — Scott Adams

Now, I have said it numerous times before and it will be said again.

Giving to those who need is different from those who are leeches.

Giving to those in need is giving to someone who through no fault of their own is experiencing difficulties. These folks appreciate the help while trying to help themselves.

The leeches are the lazy, ungrateful ones that demand more, more, more while giving nothing in return. 

Give, but give wisely. Joseph a son of Jehovah

This brings us to another important aspect of giving.

We are not to randomly give (although there is nothing wrong with that, like helping a handicapped man or woman with their groceries to their vehicle or giving up your seat on the bus) our fiances or time.

We are to take it to Jehovah in prayer. He will send the Holy Spirit to guide us where the resources will be used effectively.

If you want the Masters help you must be willing to obey His direction in your life.  Joseph a son of Jehovah

Using this method has brought me to places I would never have gone and done things I would never have done. But the results were incredible beyond my imagination.

Doing these things adds jewels to your crown which Christ will place upon your head when you are in Heavens home.

Another pay off is when you are in desperate time Jehovah gives pay back seven times more than you gave.

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Ha Melech Psalms 98:6 The LORD the King) for blessing me with the most incredible adventure in life that was beyond the wildest imagination. Thank you that we have accomplished so much in this life You have blessed me with. In You fantastic name I praise You. 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. Joseph a son of Jehovah

They Know it Too.

 For merely listening to the law doesn’t make us right with God. It is obeying the law that makes us right in his sight. Even Gentiles, who do not have God’s written law, show that they know his law when they instinctively obey it, even without having heard it.  They demonstrate that God’s law is written in their hearts, for their own conscience and thoughts either accuse them or tell them they are doing right. Romans 2:13-15 

A question that is frequently asked of us Christians is what about those who have not heard about Jehovah? How can that be fair that He casts them into Hell when they have never heard about Him? How can a loving God do that? That is unfair.

Even those with no education of Christianity know there is a Supreme God by their consciences.

They know it too. After all, who imputes it into their thoughts what is right and what is wrong. Therefore, they will have no excuse when they face Jesus at the Judgment throne.

When you study ancient history every religion points back to the God of creation.

Those that reject Jehovah here, deserve to be rejected by Him in Heaven. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Today, society in the west, has become dependent upon electronics and most folks live in a city so they are removed from the wonder of Gods creation (do you think it strange that most of the so called atheists live in the city while most of those with a deep religious conviction live in the boondocks). Those in the city get their perception of nature from perverted minds that teach that animals are like people and that animals can be treated like cute lovable toys (like in the movies). I have seen it with catastrophic results when planting trees every year. They do not have a clue what it is like to live off of the land or how to behave around wild animals. The same goes for hunting. You live on a farm or ranch and see how fast you buy are rifle to protect your crops and or livestock.

The closer you get to nature the closer you get to Jehovah. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Bara (The Lord Creator) for the wonderful honour of You revealing Yourself to me through Your incredible creation. It amazes me and creates a heart and mind that worships and respects You all the more. I praise You in the name of He who was there with You in the beginning Jesus Christ. Amen

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

For All I Have not Seen.

                                                  

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

Have you ever laid out under the sky at night and looked at the stars? Have you ever tried to count them? When a child it was a summer ritual with us country kids. It is impossible for us to imagine nor understand how He did it. We feel very small and insignificant but then Jehovah speaks to us and says :”Yes I made all these stars and am awesome but my love for you is even larger than these galaxies.” How can you not trust a God like that?

Have you ever smelled and caressed a flower in the early morning dew? Its whole essence fills you with a sensation equal with being mildly intoxicated. We are in awe at His amazing creation and cannot imagine nor understand how He knew to make such beautiful creations. Have you ever wondered how a God like that cannot have such a loving heart for His cherished children? How can you not love a God like that with your life?

Have you ever watched a sunrise and or sunset over a body of water like the ocean and been completely memorized by it with time standing still. Have you ever wondered how Jehovah can set the sun at just the right angle to create such and intently amazing scene? It is beyond our knowledge or imagination how He did it. How can you not trust a God like that with your life?

When I was a tree planter in the mountains in Canada every year the atheist kids from the city would laugh at me for worshiping a make believe God. Then one day when they were planting they would look up and Jehovah would reveal His Divine beauty in nature before them. They stood still like a statute and were bedazzled by it all. They could no longer laugh at a make believe God because they has met Him in His creation.

“All I have seen teaches me to trust the Creator for all I have not seen.” Emerson

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Bara (The Lord Creator) for blessing me with Your revealing Your awesome love, majesty and incredible intelligence through Your creation. Thank you for using these experiences to bless me with the Divine opportunity to get oh so very close with You during these momentous events. I exalt Thee in the name of He who was there helping create these amazing creation 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

Sees the Invisible

Now faith is the assurance (title deed, confirmation) of things hoped for (divinely guaranteed), and the evidence of things not seen [the conviction of their reality—faith comprehends as fact what cannot be experienced by the physical senses].For by this [kind of] faith the men of old gained [divine] approval. By faith [that is, with an inherent trust and enduring confidence in the power, wisdom and goodness of God] we understand that the worlds (universe, ages) were framed and created [formed, put in order, and equipped for their intended purpose] by the word of God, so that what is seen was not made out of things which are visible. Hebrews 11:1-3 Holy Bible, Amplified Version

Another word for faith is trust.

When Jehovah makes a promise to us we may not see its fruition for years or indeed even decades. We trust our Lord at His word.

I cannot count the number of times Jehovah has accomplished incredible things in my life and through my life. Many times I would stand back in awe and wonder at how some of these things were accomplished.

Now there is no wonder but there is still incredible awe at just what my Heavenly Father accomplishes in my life and through my life. It never ceases to amaze me.

There have been many times when the Lord made a promise to me only for me to inform Him that that is not possible. It has taken numerous years to accept the fact that nothing is impossible for Him. Now I wait in anticipation not that He will do it but I want to see the magnificent manner in which He will do it. Our God is truly an amazing God.

“Faith sees the invisible, believes the incredible, and receives the impossible.” — Corrie ten Boom

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah El Roi (You are the God who sees) for Your omniscient, council in every aspect of my life as You instill in me a stronger and stronger faith in You my loving Tutor. I extol Thee in the name of the best teacher of all Jesus Christ. Amen

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

He was Disgusting to Society

But the Lord said to Samuel, “Do not look at his appearance or at the height of his stature, because I have rejected him. For the Lord sees not as man sees; for man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.” 1 Samuel 16:7 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Being a shepherd in Davids time he was disgusting to them. Shepherds were dirty, smelly and uncouth. But, Jehovah saw what was in his heart.

The same is true in us. You do not need to be a supermodel, wear all the latest designer clothes, attend a premier college or university or have a fat wallet to be used by Jehovah. It is your heart He is looking for.

When I was young I was poor, very shy and constantly sick. Those that knew me then would never have believed the manner in which Christ used me and the incredible transformation He has accomplished in me.

The same is true for everyone, including you.

It does not matter your appearance, your social graces, your intelligence or any other factor in your life. When your heart is receptive unto Christ He joyously embraces you into His Divine family.

The only requirement to be of service unto Christ our King is an obedient, receptive heart. Give Him that and watch the amazing things He does in your life and through your life. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Do not reject the worst sinners like drunks or drug addicts as unworthy to become Jehovahs children because it is the worst sinners who make the best saints. This is because they appreciate the Hell the Holy Spirit has delivered them from.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah M’Kaddesh (The Lord is my Sanctifier) for blessing me with sanctifying a wicked sinner like me into Your Holy family.

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

Cannot be Perfected Without Adversity.

 I have told you these things, so that in Me you may have [perfect] peace. In the world you have tribulation and distress and suffering, but be courageous [be confident, be undaunted, be filled with joy]; I have overcome the world.” [My conquest is accomplished, My victory abiding.] John 16:33 Holy Bible Amplified Version

We all suffer through trials and tribulations, sorrows and snares.

The difference is that those of us in Jehovahs family is there to comfort us, encourage us, heal us and guide us through them.

Those of the world depend upon their own faulty understanding, power and logic and or that of so called professionals to no avail. They suffer far greater.

The closer we get to Christ, the more we are going to suffer. The more we suffer, the closer we get to Christ. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Many times when we are enduring hard times and we call out to Jehovah it seems as if there is no answer. Do not be discouraged. He loves you and will not ever desert you.

When you reflect back on it you will see Jehovah burning off the dross (the bad dispositions in you) and teaching you.

This fills me with awe and amazing joy, love and respect that I have such an amazing God, it will you as well.

Of course there is going to be a battle between you and satan.

He sees you getting close to Christ and he is infuriated. He will show no mercy in his attacks to destroy this incredible loving relationship.

Sometimes Jehovah will allow you to fight your own battles and each time you do your warrior skills against this filth will be enlarged. You will sing for joy unto Jehovah in your victory. Think of Job at the end of his suffering. This will bring you closer to our Warrior King.

Other times the battle is too strong for you and the Holy Spirit will come  to rescue  you. Again your relationship with Christ will be closer than before.

“A gem cannot be polished without friction; the child of God cannot be perfected without adversity.” — Author Unknown

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Bara (The Lord Creator) for using adversity to polish off the dross in my life so that I am a beautiful jewel in Your eyes and in Your heart. I extol Thee in the name of the most precious jewel of all Jesus Christ. Amen.

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