The Miracle That We Really Get.

JEHOVAHS COMMUNION

 You have endowed him with eternal blessings and given him the joy of your presence. Psalm 21:6 Holy Bible, New Living Translation

Have you ever been in Jehovahs presence?

I mean, have you ever experienced His celestial being being with you?

I have on numerous occasions. Every time there is an overwhelming experience of love, peace and joy. Every molecule in my body was tingling like a delightful electric current racing through it and I exploded in ecstasy singing out: “I love you my God, I love you. “

Time does not exist and it is as if there is nothing nor anyone in the universe except for my Beloved and I.

This is freely available to anyone and everyone who develops a loving relationship with Jehovah, Jesus and the Holy Spirit.

We do not get to dictate the when or where that is Divine blessing occurs. It is up to Jehovahs discretion.

But, I will tell you this: it is an experience like nothing else on the planet. There is nothing that can compare to it.

“It is not the objective proof of God’s existence that we want but the experience of God’s presence. That is the miracle we are really after, and that is also, I think, the miracle that we really get.” — Frederick Buechner

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah El SIMCHAH GIYL (God my Exceeding Joy) for blessing me with exceeding joy every time You honour me with Your presence. It is the sweetest joy there can ever be. I exalt You in the name of He who blesses You with the most joy, 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

I am Rich, I am Poor

CHRIST IN ME

 But that is the time to be careful! Beware that in your plenty you do not forget the Lord your God and disobey his commands, regulations, and decrees that I am giving you today. Deuteronomy 8:11 New Living Translation Bible

I am rich, I am poor.

That pretty much sums up my life.

When the times were materially good my spiritual relationship with Jehovah was as cool as a corpse. The funny thing is though that even though I was living a life of comfort and ease there was something missing. I could not put my finger on it.

Then, when the good times came to an end and the material hard times came I found I was close to Jehovah spiritually.

From a lot of experience I greatly prefer the spiritual wealth over the material ones.

There is a saying that when the times are good the church is empty but when the times are hard the church is full.

Why wait for the hard times when you can be blessed with a daily close loving obedient relationship with Jehovah. Then when the hard times come, they are not so hard because of your closeness with Jehovah.

When we arrogantly turn our back on Jehovahs commands, decrees and regulations we pay a very severe price for it. Just read the history books of any country to confirm it.

I have found that this verse is oh so very true to be blessed with a contented, grateful life:

Give me neither poverty nor riches! Give me just enough to satisfy my needs. Proverbs 30:8 New Living Translation Bible

“We can stand affliction better than we can prosperity, for in prosperity we forget God.” Dwight L. Moody

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah El SIMCHAH GIYL (God my Exceeding Joy) for the most wonderful of gifts and that is the never ending joy that comes from nurturing an eternal loving relationship with You. I revere You in the name of He who brings me ecstatic joy when in His wonderful presence Jesus Christ. Amen

May you be blessed with peace and joy every day.

Love Always Involves

complete deditacation

Because we understand our fearful responsibility to the Lord 2 Corinthians 5:11 New Living Translation Bible

Yes, as Christians we have a responsibility unto Jesus. He is our King and we are to serve Him.

Fearful in this context means being respectful. That means we are not to go before the King (in other words we are not to choose the type of service we offer to Christ but must be obedient unto His calling in life). We are not to sit on our hands and do nothing either. When the King calls we are to take responsibility and move where, when and how He asks us to. We are to take responsibility and do the work He has assigned for us to do.

I will sacrifice a voluntary offering to you; I will praise your name, O Lord, for it is good. Psalm 54:6 New Living Translation Bible

Yes, as Christians we are to give sacrifices unto Jehovah. That pleases Him.

No these sacrifices are not animals nor humans.

These are sacrifices of love, joy and gratitude.

Because Jehovah has blessed us we are to share the blessing with others and not hoard it. Our offering of the one tenth of everything is a sacrifice to Jehovah. That means not just money but if growing a garden the first one tenth is to be given to Jehovah. May I suggest you talk with a local church to share with the working poor, or the elderly that are on limited pensions or those that are sick or hurt and cannot work.

After seeing the lazy ungrateful welfare bums that go to food banks and soup kitchens I refuse to donate to them. That is a waste.

Sacrifice on tenth of your time. Again, go to a church and ask where they need help. It may be cutting the lawn or visiting someone in the hospital or seniors home.

“Love always involves responsibility, and love always involves sacrifice. And we do not really love Christ unless we are prepared to face His task and to take up His Cross.” — William Barclay

Prayer: It is an honour Jesus Hamelech ( Jesus my Lord King ) to suffer my Beloved King for You as You have suffered for me. It brings greater appreciation for the sacrifice You made for me. I extol You in Your magnificent loving name. Amen

May you be blessed with the gift of love, the gift of peace, the gift of joy. May you be blessed with numerous opportunities to share these gifts with others today.

Removing Obstacles that Block Your Way

 Every man did what was right in his own eyes. Judges 17:6 Holy Bible, Amplified Version

That sounds a lot like today.

When you study history it is like a never ending circle.

First folks join together and work as a community and are respectful towards Jehovah. Then, when they begin to prosper they forget Jehovah. Because they forget Jehovah they have no spiritual guidance and fall into a very degenerative lifestyle which ultimately destroys their society.

Read the Book of Judges in the Bible and then study any history you want, European, Asian, Middle East, African. They are all the same.

Trust in and rely confidently on the Lord with all your heart And do not rely on your own insight or understanding. In all your ways know and acknowledge and recognize Him, And He will make your paths straight and smooth [removing obstacles that block your way]. Proverbs 3:5-6 Holy Bible, Amplified Version

Now this is the wise man and womans choice of life. We trust in Jehovah more and more as we get closer and closer to Him in a loving obedient life. For some it comes quickly but for most of us it takes decades to develop this trust (it is not Jehovahs fault nor ours. Being humans it takes time to develop this lifestyle). He never leads us wrong. We rely upon Jehovah for our daily portion of spiritual, mental and physical nourishment. He always supplies us. Because we are human our intellect is inferior to Jehovahs. The wise man and woman rely upon Him for guidance. He leads us away from disaster and towards victory.

I acknowledge Him to others when they ask why I live the way I do. I know with all my heart He loves me so therefore He only wants what is best for me.

The more time we spend with our Beloved, the more we are in tune with His voice and recognize it over the sly serpent (satan). The result of this is a fulfilling life of love, peace, joy, purpose and meaning. What more could one ask for in life? Trust Jehovah, He will never lead you wrong. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Emet (God of truth) for always being honest with me in guiding me down the proper path to take in life. It has prevented a lot of unnecessary hardship, sorrow and pain. I venerate You in the name of my Divine Heavenly Sheppard Jesus Christ. Amen

May the light of Christs love shine brightly in your heart today and every day

But by Subtraction

 But godliness actually is a source of great gain when accompanied by contentment [that contentment which comes from a sense of inner confidence based on the sufficiency of God]. 1 Timothy 6:6 Holy Bible, Amplified Version

The more you have, the less happy and contented you are. That is a proven fact.

Most folks are puppets in the hands of big monopolies. They say if you have this you will be happy. Then, they charge you exorbitant amounts of money to purchase their product. Because you cannot afford it, it puts you into debt. Then, next year they come out with a new and improved product and the process it repeated.

If it gets between you and Christ, get rid of it. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Going into debt and working long hours only to be exhausted keeps you away from Christ.

Live a simple life, you will be much more contented.

I speak from a lot of experience. I have always lived a simple, frugal lifestyle and for the most part am very contented. I see those I grew up with being very materialistic and are the most miserable folks you ever meet.

For me, my greatest joy, and satisfaction is when sharing a conversation with Jesus. It need not be about my problems (although there is nothing wrong with that but it is not to be the only time you talk with Him). Many times it is when we are walking in His creation (nature) that we just talk about anything and everything like the best friends we are. It is so enjoyable. He opens my eyes to all the beauty around me and how He loves me and takes care of me. I am contented with His daily provision in my life.

I have lived in abundance and in abject poverty but learning to depend upon and be grateful for Jehovahs daily provisions is one of the greatest lessons learned. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Now I do not worry about where my next meal is coming from nor hoard things. Now I do not foolishly waste His daily provisions but use them wisely as a manner in which to show proper respect and appreciation for my Fathers provisions.

“Contentment is not by addition but by subtraction: seeking to add a thing will not bring contentment. Instead, subtracting from your desires until you are satisfied only with Christ brings contentment.” Jeremiah Burroughs

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireh ( God provides ) for patiently teaching me that my wants will never bring me satisfaction but being content in Your daily provision brings a lot of contentment, peace, appreciation, respect and peace. Next to being blessed with loving communion with You, these are the greatest of gifts You daily bless me with. I am in deep gratitude to You in the name of Your greatest gift to me Jesus Christ. Amen

May you be blessed with the gift of love, the gift of peace, the gift of joy. May you be blessed with numerous opportunities to share these gifts with others today.

But Pray for A

DIVINE STRENGTH

. For His loving kindness prevails over us [and we triumph and overcome through Him], And the truth of the Lord endures forever. Praise the Lord! (Hallelujah!) Psalm 117:2 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

It took many decades to believe this.

There was those terrible yeah buts that always came in like a flash when Jehovah asked me to do something for Him. If you think Moses was good at giving excuses at the burning bush, you should have heard some of mine.

We all go through it.

Jehovah is patient with us.

He begins with most of us by asking small things and enlarging them as our faith in Him enlarges as well. Now there are times when He will ask us to jump over canyons but we need to have faith the the jump will be completed on the backs of angels the Lord sends to help in the jump as well as His mighty hand. I have been through a few of them and He was always there with me, through it all, leading me to triumph both for His glory and for my joy and amazement at just what we accomplished together.

“Be brave. Do not pray for the hard thing to go away. But pray for a Bravery to come that’s bigger than the hard thing.” Ann Voskamp

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ‘Uzam (The Lord is our Strength in Trouble) for blessing me with strength to not only endure the hard times but to grow through them to mould me into and every stronger child of Yours. I thank you in the name of the strongest of them all Jesus Christ. Amen

May you be blessed with abundant joy in your heart filled with love and your life overflowing with laughter every day this year.

On an Admitted

HIS INSTRUCTION

You will show me the way of life, granting me the joy of your presence and the pleasures of living with you forever. Psalm 16:11 New Living Translation

A presumed fullness is when we brag that we are full and have no need of Jehovah. It is arrogant and is bragging. Beware. What is freely given unto you can and will be freely taken. Then you will end up with nothing. I have seen it oh so many times.

Then, there is the Christian perspective.

We empty our wants and desires for Jehovahs wants and desires. In the process we are blessed with love, purpose and spiritual treasures beyond compare. We may not be wealthy in the worlds eyes but boy are we ever rich in Jehovahs eyes.

“God is more disposed to move on an admitted emptiness than a presumed fullness.” — Tommy Tenn

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah RAB (The Lord my Nourisher) for blessing me with the most nutritious feast that is ever freely available to all seeking a fulfilling spiritual, mental and physical life. I praise You in the name of He who fills us daily with His Divine love Jesus Christ. Amen

May you be blessed with the gift of love, the gift of peace, the gift of joy. May you be blessed with numerous opportunities to share these gifts with others today.
