A closer walk with our beloved friend.


Leave a comment

All in One Word.

Today our world is plagued by rage and depression. It oozes into every cranny of society, rich and poor, man and woman, of every colour and nationality.

Everyone is asking why.

It can all be summed up in one word: unforgiveness.

When we refuse to forgive someone for an offense they have committed upon us it seeps into every aspect of our life. That is why there is so much road rage, why there is so much drug abuse, why there is so much failed marriage, why there is so much in fighting in families.

Why do folks refuse to forgive?

Because, we are greedy.

Instead of leaving justice in Jehovahs capable hands we demand the right for blood by our own.

Unforgiveness is a form of selfishness. We demand our pound of flesh.Joseph a son of Jehovah

The cure for this selfishness can only be found by laying our grievances at the feet of Jesus and trusting Him to deliver true justice in His time and in His way.

Speaking from personal experience, Christs justice is far more terrible than anything we could administer to the unrepentant.

The Lord works out everything to its proper end— even the wicked for a day of disaster. The Lord detests all the proud of heart. Be sure of this: They will not go unpunished. Proverbs 16: 4-5 Holy Bible New Living Translation

In the mean time, we are to pray for the offended to come to repentance for their own good.

If possible stay away from abusive folks and if you have to deal with them do so graciously but firmly. Let them know their attitude and behavior is not welcome nor tolerated. Therefore, the relationship shall remain formal, but, if they repent the door of friendship shall be opened

Prayer: Please Jehovah Elohe Tishuathi (Psalms 18:46&51:14) – GOD of My selfishnessSalvation bless me to always have a forgiving heart towards others as You do towards me. Please bless me with the wisdom, strength and provision to walk away from habitual  abusers and to pray for them to come unto repentance as well. I humbly request this in the name of He whose blood made forgiveness possible 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

Do What Pleases Him.

his instruction

 For God is working in you, giving you the desire and the power to do what pleases him. Philippians 2:13 Holy Bible New Living Translation

At some point in everyones life we all ask the same question:” Why am I here?”

Now you do not build a car to drive on rail road tracks do you?

Why?

Because it was not built to travel on rail road track but on roads that is why.

So many folks waste their lives going out and trying to drive their cars (lives) on railroad tracks and then wonder why their lives have no meaning.

Jesus Christ is our King.As such, He has specif planned for our lives. We can only find fulfillment in life when we stop trying to find meaning in life by following what we want to do and we start doing what Christ designed for us to do.

For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago. Ephesians 2:10 Holy Bible New Living Translation 

So, get off of the railroad tracks and get on the Road to Heaven Christ has chosen for you to travel on.

“God left you on earth for a purpose. Do it.” Unknown

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Bara (The Lord Creator) for creating me for a unique purpose in service to You.Please guide me to fulfill Your purpose in my life, which blesses me with meaning in my life. I meekly request this in the name of He who followed Your purpose for Him on earth all the way to the cross Jesus Christ. Amen

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

He Made You Something Special

work-in-progress

 

For we are His workmanship [His own master work, a work of art], created in Christ Jesus [reborn from above—spiritually transformed, renewed, ready to be used] for good works, which God prepared [for us] beforehand [taking paths which He set], so that we would walk in them [living the good life which He prearranged and made ready for us]. Ephesians 2:10 Holy Bible, Amplified Version

Have you ever looked at the life of the majority of movie stars, musicians and TV stars? How many of them are all messed up on drugs and booze? How many of them are involved with sexual promiscuity? How many of their lives are all messed up? How many of them change partners more than you change the tires on your car? Have you noticed how shallow and self centred they are? Then why in the world would desire to emulate them?

The same can be said about the majority of the most popular kids in school when we see them later in life. Most have squandered their lives away on booze, drugs and failed marriages. Being older, it still amazes me when I see this.

Jehovah does not make junk. He made you something special and when you accept Christ as your Savior, He moulds you into an even more beautiful child of God. This is a lifetime endeavor. The longer we walk with Jesus and look back at how far the Holy Spirit has taken us and changed us, it is awesome and amazing.

We forfeit three fourths of ourselves to be like other people. Arthur Schopenhauer

 

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Bara (The Lord Creator) for the patience, skill and endurance to continuously mould this difficult lump of clay into a beautiful Heavenly child of Yours. I long to see Your reflection in my daily life become more and more inlaid in my character. I praise You in the name of the most beautiful of all Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Labour to Grow Better

CHRISTIAN SCARS

 “Indeed, I have refined you, but not as silver; I have tested and chosen you in the furnace of affliction. Isaiah 48:10 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

He loves you too much to allow it to grow.

That is why Jehovah refines us in the furnace of affliction. When there are (and there always is) ungodly behavior, belief or dispositions in a Christians life.

Jehovah first bring it to His child’s attention and inform them of the way to correct this disease.

When the child stubbornly refuse to obey our Heavenly Father, then He brings afflictions to them to encourage them to reform their ways.

The longer the child refuses the Fathers disciple, the stronger the discipline becomes until it crushes the disobedience in the child. It is not pleasant but it is what is best for us in the walk to Heaven.

I have been through it and every Christian will go through it as well. Sometimes we learn quick, sometimes (like me) we learn slow so we endure a lot of afflictions until the lesson of obedience is learned in every aspect of our life.

“Labour to grow better under all your afflictions, lest your afflictions grow worse, lest God mingle them with more darkness, bitterness and terror.” — John Owen

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Bara (The Lord Creator) for patiently creating this child of Yours into a obedient, loving child through many afflictions when I was a stubborn and obstinate child. I pray I never have to hurt Your precious heart by forcing You to discipline me in such a manner every again because I love You so much. I exalt You in the name of He who disciplines those He loves so dearly 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

God’s Primary Objective Is

                                        

Then Jesus said to His disciples, “If anyone wishes to follow Me [as My disciple], he must deny himself [set aside selfish interests], and take up his cross[expressing a willingness to endure whatever may come] and follow Me [believing in Me, conforming to My example in living and, if need be, suffering or perhaps dying because of faith in Me]. Matthew 16:24 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

The Christian life is a life of sacrifice. Sacrifice of :Not my will but Thy will be done my Love”. This means Jehovah first, others second and self last. This is hard as it involves a lot of hardships along the way.

It involves surrender of our will for His.

It means being obedient unto His direction in our lives whether we like it or not. It means going places we shutter to go to.

 It means doing with out.

It means doing a lot of things which are repulsive to the fleshly desire within us. It is not a one off thing but rather a daily one. One which is required of us every day for the rest of our lives no matter how young or old we are.

“God’s primary objective is not to make our lives easy but to make our lives matter.”Unknown

Prayer: Oh Jesus Christ Hamelech ( Jesus my Lord King ) this humble servant always desires to be obedient unto Your decree’s in my life.

When they are hard I humbly pray the Holy Spirit blesses me with the strength to step out into the unknown world You are guiding me in service to.

I thank you Holy Spirit for the strength, encouragement and resources to fulfill my Beloved Kings biddings.

I submissively request this and am in gratitude for this in the name of the King for whom it is such a supreme honour to serve 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

Who Works In You.

HE HAS THE WORK PREPARED

For it is God who works in you both to will and to do for His good pleasure. Philippians 2:12   New King James Version                                   

I believe we all have that time in our lives when we ask the question: why am I here? 

                                                                                        

Some go off on stupid treasure hunts for the meaning of life without God.

It will never be found.                                                                                    

When we sincerely request of our Lord what His mission is in our lives He will slowly (it may take years, it may take decades. For me I served Him in many capacities over thirty decades. Each service was preparing me for a bigger one he had in store for me) reveal it to us.                         

Do not forget that Moses was tending sheep in the wilderness for forty years before he received his calling In that time he learned how to tend sheep which was preparing him to be the Sheppard for the Israelites.           

It is in a long slow process that both our obedience and our faith grows stronger. 

                                                                                                  

One feeds the other.                                                                                        

As we obey and step out into the unknown having little faith, Jehovah reveals He is there to guide us. This builds our faith which prepares us for even greater challenges in which we are obedient to His next calling in our lives.                                                                                                      

Once this occurs we understand Gods divine providence for our being here which brings true satisfaction to our lives which is a great blessing.                                           

“It is a vain thought to flee from the work that God appoints us, for the sake of finding a greater blessing, instead of seeking it where alone it is to be found – in loving obedience.”  George Eliot

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Shammah (God is present) for being there to constantly guide me on the divine path You have prepared for me to travel in my obedient humble service to You which ultimately leads to the Heavenly home You have graciously prepared for me from before time began. I humbly thank you in the name of my gentle but strong Sheppard Jesus Christ. Amen.                                                                                                            

May the sunshine of Jesus sweet love bless you today and every day.
