He is Worthy Of

BE STILL

 Blessed and worthy of praise be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly realms in Christ. Ephesians 1:3 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Think of the one relative that you loved as a child when growing up. When they told you something you trusted them that is was the truth.

How much more is Jehovah worthy of our trust? The longer you have walked with Him the longer the list is (which is why it is important for us more mature in the family to come along beside one not as mature as us and help them by sharing events in our lives where Jehovah has come through for us). Because He has come through for us in the past our obedience unto Him should expand in the present and in the future which is a form of faith in Him. We do this because we have confidence in His providence even though some times it does not make sense to us.

“God is God. Because He is God, He is worthy of my trust and obedience. I will find rest nowhere but in His holy will, a will that is unspeakably beyond my largest notions of what He is up to.” Elisabeth Elliot

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Emunah (God is faithful) for always being faithful to Your numerous promises to me. May I always be a faithful child to You. I give thanks for this blessing and make this vow in the name of Your most faithful son Jesus Christ. Amen

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

To Live as He

CHIEF DUTY

 Not what I will, but what You will.”Mark 14:36 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

One aspect of prayer is requesting guidance in every aspect of our lives, both big and small.

When Jehovah answers these prayers and we are obedient to them we will live at His direction in our lives.

Many times it takes huge leaps of faith (trust) to be obedient to them because they do not make sense to us. Especially to those like me who are logical.

But our logic is finite compared to Jehovahs infinite logic. He sees things far into the future that we do not. He understands the implications far better that we do. It takes a lifetime to be confident in His direction even though sometimes it seems like nonsense to us. However when we do, we will live as we pray.

“He who prays as he ought will endeavour to live as he prays.” — John Owen

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah EL OHIM YAKOL (God, the Most Able) for enabling me to bring life and meaning to my prayers when You wisely answer in how to bring them to fruitation. I praise You in the name of He who answers all prayers Jesus Christ. AMEN.

May you be blessed with Jesus’ sweet love encompassing you today and every day. Joseph a son of Jehovah

A Man Who Has No.

 

Like a city that is broken down and without walls [leaving it unprotected]
Is a man who has no self-control over his spirit [and sets himself up for trouble]. Proverbs 25:28 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Once a long time ago I played a chess game while stoned on marijuana and it was the quickest game my opponent ever played and the easiest win as well.

Many decades later (and no longer a pot head) the Holy Spirit brought back that memory to teach me a valuable lesson. The reason the opponent won so easily was because the pot diminished my ability to use reason and logic.

So too it is with our temper.

When we begin to lose our temper we begin to be easy pickings for our opponent and the devil will use this to our advantage.

To lose your temper is to lose the battle. To depend upon the Holy Spirit to control our temper and bless us with wisdom, grace and strength is to gain victory. Joseph a son of Jehovah

If instead we are wise and depend upon the Holy Spirit for guidance, He will bless us with Supreme Divine logic and reasoning, including when to get out of there and calm down. Indeed, He will guide us to avoid those who love to instigate fights for no other reason than to watch folks blow up and make fools of themselves.

Prayer: Please Jehovah Ezer (The LORD our Helper) bless me with the strength to shut my mouth and remove myself from situations that agitate my patience and with the wisdom, gracefulness, meekness and strength to deal with agitators who perversely enjoy stirring up the pot. I ask this in the name of my humble (humbleness mean to keep your temper under control) King Jesus Christ. Amen.

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.
