Thank You Jehovah Ghmolah

I said to the Lord, “You are my Master! Every good thing I have comes from you.” Psalm 16:2 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Here David is acknowledging he has made the choice to worship and severe Jehovah above all else.

That is a wise decision.

Jehovah never demands anything of us. He always asks and the choice is ours.

Obey and there are blessings, disobey and there are curses.

Any other god is a demanding one that always screams I want more. Sure it feels good for a while but then it overtakes you and destroys you. Just ask an addict if that is true.

“We do not err because truth is difficult to see. It is visible at a glance. We err because this is more comfortable.” Alexander Solzhenitsyn

David is also acknowledging that every good thing in his life come from a blessing from our loving Heavenly Poppa.

Yes some blessings take effort on our behalf but it is Jehovah that blesses us with the opportunities, encouragement and skills fulfill the fruition of the blessing.

We all worship something. Anything other that Jehovah makes you a slave to a cruel demanding taskmaster. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Ghmolah (The God of Recompense. I leave it all in the Lord’s hand. Isaiah 49.4 I will trust God for my reward. ) thank you that You generously bless me when I am obedient unto You.

Thank you that You are also a God of justice and those who willingly are evil and wicked shall also receive their just reward, if not in this life then most certainly in the eternal one.

I extol You in the name of the Supreme Judge, 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.   Joseph a son of Jehovah

For Your Gift

Oh Jehovah Abba (God our Father) 1 John 3:1 thank You for Your promise that your mercies are new every morning and Your faithfulness is great.

Thank you for your amazing power, great love and work in my life every day.

Thank you for Your endless goodness and bountiful blessings over me. I am so grateful that You are always with me through the toughest of times.

Thank you the power and strength that The Holy Spirit, who dwells with in me, blesses me with every day.

Thank you that Your mercy and grace is always with me.

Thank you for allowing the incredible sacrifice You allowed Your most precious Son to sacrifice for me so that I have freedom and life in communion with You.

Please forgive me when I neglect to thank you for the generous blessings You give me every day, for all You have done in my life and for all You are doing in my life.

Please help me to set my eyes and heart on you afresh today.

Please renew my spirit every morning and fill me with Your peace and joy. Thank you that your ways are far greater than my ways and Your thoughts far deeper than my thoughts.

Thank you for Your plan to redeem me and that in You, all things are made new.

Thank you that Your face is towards the righteous, You are close to the brokenhearted, You hear my cries, and know my heart.

Thank you for Your daily, powerful presence in my life, that I am assured, no matter what I am facing, Your heart is towards me, Your eyes are over me, and Your ears are open to my prayers.

Thank you that you surround us with favor as with a shield, and I am safe in Your care.

I humbly ask that You would keep my footsteps firm on solid ground, helping me to be consistent and faithful.

Please give me supernatural endurance to stay the course in life which You have chosen for me to walk to Heaven, not swerving to the right or to the left, or being too easily distracted by other things that would seek to call me away from a close walk with You.

I pray for your protection over my life, my family, and other believers.

I ask for your hand to cover us and keep us distanced from the evil intent of the enemy, that you would be a barrier over us and we would find refuge in you.

I pray You would give me discernment and insight beyond my years to understand Your will, hear Your voice, know Your ways and be obedient unto them all.

Please shine Your light in me, through me, and over me. May I make a difference in my family, my neighbourhood and this world for your glory, so your purposes would stand. Set Your way before us this day and every day.

May all Your plans in my life succeed.

May I reflect your peace and hope to a world that so desperately needs Your presence and healing. I deeply love You and need You Lord in every aspect of my life, this day and every day.

I give You praise and thanks, for You alone are worthy, and I are more than conquerors through the gift of Jesus Christ! In Jesus’ Name Amen.

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

Never Mind Telling Them.

“Look, I now teach you these decrees and regulations just as the Lord my God commanded me, so that you may obey them in the land you are about to enter and occupy. Obey them completely, and you will display your wisdom and intelligence among the surrounding nations. When they hear all these decrees, they will exclaim, ‘How wise and prudent are the people of this great nation!’ For what great nation has a god as near to them as the Lord our God is near to us whenever we call on him? And what great nation has decrees and regulations as righteous and fair as this body of instructions that I am giving you today? Deuteronomy 4:5-8 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Do you notice that it is when the Israelite’s lived according to Jehovahs instructions that the surrounding nations became intrigued by them?

So too it is to be with us in our quest to bring others into Jehovahs family.

I hear so many preachers say we must evangelize the world to bring everyone to Jesus and we must share Jesus with the world.

Never mind telling them, the most effective way to bring others to Christ is by living the Christian life. When others see you are different from the rest of society they will be curious. THEN, you can share what Jesus has done in your life and through your life.

A Christian must walk the walk before they talk the talk. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Those whose hearts are receptive will move towards Christ while those who prefer living in darkness will walk away. Do not go after those who walk away. Leave that to the Holy Spirit to move their hearts towards Jesus. If they will not listen to the Holy Spirit, they sure will not listen to you.

Prayer: Please Jehovah GELAH RAZ ( the God of the Revealer of Mysteries Colossians 1:26 ) bless me to live a life that emulates Your beloved son Jesus Christ so that when others see this mysterious manner of living they will be drawn towards me and I can be blessed with sharing the simple truth of the blessing of being a loved child of Yours, which is a mystery to the dark world. I humbly beseech Thee in the name of the Light of love in this dark world, 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 to be shared with others. May you be blessed with plentiful opportunities to share these with those around you today. Joseph a son of Jehovah

I Didn’t Have Time To

  And rushed right into the day;
I had so much to accomplish
That I didn’t have time to pray.
Problems just tumbled about me,
And heavier came each task;
‘Why doesn’t God help me?’ I wondered.
He answered, ‘You didn’t ask.’
I wanted to see joy and beauty
But the day toiled on gray and bleak
I wondered why God didn’t show me
He said, ‘But you didn’t seek’,
I tried to come into God’s presence;
I used all my keys in the lock.
God gently and lovingly chided,
‘My child, you didn’t knock.’
I woke up early this morning,
And paused before entering the day;
I had so much to accomplish
That I had to take time to pray.” -Author Unkown, This poem, “The Difference,” is public domain.

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.   Joseph a son of Jehovah

I am Not Afraid.

 I am not afraid, for the Holy Spirit is with me. I am not discouraged, for Jehovah is my God. Jesus strengthens me and helps me. He holds me up with His victorious right hand. Isaiah 41:10 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Please my Beloved Jehovah Gibbor Milchamah (Psalms 24:8The LORD Mighty In Battle) whenever hard times come always help me to remember that You have promised that You would never leave me nor desert me and that You are always true to Your word. Jesus has said, I will never fail you. I will never abandon you. ”Hebrews 13:5 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

I know that when satan is attacking his hardest it is to prevent me from accomplishing important tasks You have prepared for me to do to bring honour to You and to bring the little lost sheep to You.

Keep awake! Watch at all times. The devil is working against me. He is walking around like a hungry lion with his mouth open. He is looking for someone to eat 1Peter 5:6-8 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

When all seems lost, please remind me that You are right there beside me, walking me to glorious victory in Your beautiful name. You have promised that the battle is not mine but Yours to win. I know many battles will not be won instantly but take time.

The Lord my God is with me, a Powerful One Who wins the battle. He has much joy over me. With His love He gives me new life. He has joy over me with loud singing. Zephaniah 3:17 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Please enlarge my faith (trust) in You to bring it to a magnificent completion. Remembering the past victories cause me to sing songs of gratitude and joy for the victory You are bringing me in this battle.

I pray this in the name of my most glorious King of Kings, Jesus Christ. Amen

 Our Hearts Dance With

 Weeping may last through the night but joy comes with the morning. Psalm 30:5 Holy Bible New Living Translation

When we are sad, discouraged and or heavy burdened it seems as if clouds of darkness envelope us in the darkest of darkness.

Yet, when the Lord come to help us, encourage us and lifts that burden from our shoulders when we surrender to them, the dark clouds dissipate and flutter away. They are replaced with the sunshine of Jehovahs love and joy which make our hearts dance with delight and praise.

“The greater my knowledge of the goodness and grace of God on my life, the more likely I am to praise Him in the storm.” Matt Chandler

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Immeka (Judges 6:12 The LORD Is with You) for blessing me with Your kind, loving presence through the storms in my life. I would never have made it without You. I praise You in the name of He who lovingly rescued His disciples from the raging storm 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. Joseph a son of Jehovah

One Whose Heart Breaks When

 I live in the high and holy place with those whose spirits are contrite and humble. I restore the crushed spirit of the humble and revive the courage of those with repentant hearts. Isaiah 57:15 Holy Bible, New Living Translation

A contrite heart means one whose heart breaks when they sin.

Now do you notice that Jehovah lives in a high and holy place?

That can only mean Heaven.

Do you notice that those with a contrite heart live there with Him?

When we are naughty and then repent (which means we admit what we did, admit it was wrong, apologize for it, ask for forgiveness and make restitution where possible) then Jehovah takes our spirits up to Heaven to be with Him, if only for the moment of when we repent.

I believe this is a sign from our loving Heavenly Father that our sins are truly forgiven.

The Holy Spirit instills in us all that which is right and that which is wrong. We receive the proper rewards for the decisions we make. Joseph a son of Jehovah.

See how He says He will revive those of a repentant heart.

I know from my experience I felt crushed with remorse, weak and feeble. After repentance my heart felt as if a heavy burden had been lifted from it and danced with joy and gratitude for the forgiveness that was blessed upon me by my Heavenly Father (even when those that we offended were not so generous nor forgiving).

“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 Jesus Goelekh (Isaiah 49:26&60:16The LORD Thy Redeemer) that when I repent, You gently redeem me back into Jehovahs holy family. I praise You in Your kind, loving name. Amen

May love be in your life, may hope be in your heart and may peace be in your every day walk with Christ. Joseph a son of Jehovah

I Have Great Joy in Knowing

Today, my Beloved, I choose to receive my joy and strength in You.

Joy in knowing You love me with a Heavenly love as I seek opportunities to bring joy to Your treasured heart.

I know that in the cold dark world out there the devil reigns in bringing chaos and difficulties to everyone’s life but his aim is on the bulls eye of my heart because it belongs to You. He will do everything in His power to destroy our loving relationship.

I have great joy in knowing You are a force field that his evil wicked arrows cannot pierce when I place me confidence in You. Please bless me to never be in such a hurry I cannot be loving and respectful to others even when they are not respective unto me.

Please bless me to be forgiving instead of holding petty grudges and resentments.

I know that I am weak and gullible and as such an easy target for satan .

I also know that no one is as strong nor as intelligent as you. Therefore my loving Poppa in Heaven will protect me from the manipulative schemes of the wcked as I venture through this day. For that my heart dances with songs of praise for You through out the day.

Thank you my love for blessing me with all that is needed to live a victorious life in You and through You this day and every day.

It is in the name of the best Sheppard that guides this little lamb of His to Your Heavenly home that I humbly ask for these blessings and joyfully praise You them, Jesus Christ. Amen

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

It Isn’t by Accident.

be loving like jesus

If your gift is to encourage others, be encouraging. If it is giving, give generously.  Romans 12:8 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation                                                         

We all have the gift of giving. We just need the Holy Spirits discretion in where, who and how much to give. Joseph a son of Jehovah                                           

 As we travel through our days, opportunities will present themselves to us to do good deeds. These are not haphazard. They are pre-ordained gifts from God.

Gifts’ to the man, woman or child on the receiving end of the gift. It may be a word or action you give to them that makes their day.

Perhaps they are having a really bad day and your simple act of kindness and compassion brightens a dark and trying day. It is a gift to you.

Whenever I do a good deed it always makes my heart dance with joy, no matter how simple the act is.

We must offer ourselves to God like a clean, smooth canvas and not worry ourselves about what God may choose to paint on it, but at each moment, feel only the stroke of His brush. Jean Pierre de Caussade
It is a gift to God.

Hopefully the person on the receiving end takes a moment to thank God for the act of kindness.

If they do not know God but know you are a Christian, you act may be the catalyst that nudges them towards God.

Of course we should also praise God both for the opportunity to do good and for the blessings of joy we feel when we perform the act of kindness.

Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace whose imagination is stayed on Thee.
Isaiah 26:3 The Holy Bible, The King James Version

Prayer: I gladly offer You Jehovah my life to use to enrich the lives of others I meet today and every day. I thank you when these opportunities present themselves to me as they enrichen my life when I help others. In the name of our best example of giving of oneself Jesus Christ we pray. Amen.

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

May You be Blessed with Plentiful Opportunities To

 Thank you Jehovah Yotsero (God our maker Psalm 139:13-16) that just as the rising sun signifies a new day so too does it bring about new opportunities to share with You and new opportunities to serve You.

May I be as faithful unto You this day my love as You are to me.

I do not know what is going to happen today but I know who controls the events of today. Therefore, I do not plan anything but submit completely unto Your desires for me this day.

Thank you that no matter how empty I feel, The Holy Spirit fills me with high octane Divine energy with gusto to do the bidding of my Heavenly King.

I thank you my Father for reminiscing with me the glorious deeds You have done in my life and through my life. This fills me with wonder and awe at just what we are going to do today.

Sometimes my mind is going in ten different directions at the same time. Thank you Holy Spirit for sifting them out so that only the plans of my Father are the ones allowed to remain. Thank you for helping me to concentrate at accomplishing them one at a time.

I trust You today to lead me to succeed at the Divine tasks my Lord has prepared for me.

I humbly offer my mind, body and spirit to You oh wise Councillor to do with this sincere servant of the most High as He has designed for me to do in Holy service unto Him.

I pray Holy Spirit that You guide me to live this day in a manner in which will bring great joy to my Heavenly Father, Holy King and You my amazing Teacher.

I sincerely ask of this in the name of the King of Kings for which I am hnored to serve 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. Joseph a son of Jehovah
