Show Real Desire For

                                     

Repent [change your inner self—your old way of thinking, regret past sins, live your life in a way that proves repentance; seek God’s purpose for your life] Matthew 3:2 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

There is a proverb that says there is no helping an alcoholic until they want to help themselves. This is oh so very true.

Well, it is the same with the Christian. We can call out to Jehovah to help us with problems and we wonder why He is silent. Perhaps He is waiting to see just how much you desire to take the medicine to solve the problem.

So say you are calling out to Jehovah due to financial restraints. He is waiting to see if you are willing to take responsibility for your foolish spending, like paying extravagant money for a cup of coffee you can make at home for a fraction of the price. You know that is foolish but have pride to be one of the gang at school or work. Why should Jehovah offer any help to you when you refuse to take the first step? If you will not take that first step on your own, you most certainly will not follow His suggestions on how to improve your situation.

As well, He is seeing just how much faith (which means trust) we have in Him. The next part of the equation may mean a huge leap of faith.

So say you are having relationship problems but when He directs you to Godly councilors, you do not trust Him in His selection of councilor and you refuse to listen and obey to the advice He gives. It may sound insane to you but you have to take that first step out of faith in the Lord. Then He takes you by the hand through the rest of the steps. Finally there will be success. This may take years to accomplish.

“God can change our circumstances, but sometimes He waits for us to show real desire for change as well as our faith in Him.” — Anne Graham Lotz

Prayer: Please Jehovah ‘Immeku (The Lord Is With You) enable me to always have a deep desire to be obedient unto Your providential advice.

Please nurture in me a faith that grows stronger in You day by day.

I humbly request this in the name of He who was always obedient unto You all the way to the cross 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

People Who Don’t Commit

                                                                              

Commit your way to the Lord; Trust in Him also and He will do it. Psalm 37:5 Holy Bible Amplified Version

There are too many marshmallow Christians and not enough refined Christians.

How much of your life do you commit unto Christ?

Before you get out of bed in the morning do you pray and commit yourself to do Jehovah’s will during the day?

Do you commit to love Him by loving others (covertly so as to bring glory to Jehovah and not to you)?

Do you commit to asking and obeying Jehovahs choice for a new vehicle?

Do you commit to asking and obeying where Jehovah desires you to give your one tenth to?

Do you commit to asking and obeying His advice in any and all disputes (believe me, it prevents a lot of disasters) ?

Personally speaking I do not make a move without taking it to my Heavenly Father first for His Divine wise advice. Then, no matter how difficult I follow His instructions. Of course, there are times when I behave independently and boy do I pay for it in disasters of my own making.

People who don’t commit their whole heart to God, will not love Him at all, since their wickedness will overtake their personal thoughts and actions, which contradicts God’s lifestyle, Works, Ethics, and Word.” ~ Jon Barnes

Prayer: It is the greatest honour Jesus Helech ‘Olam (The Lord our King Forever) to be Your obedient humble servant and I thank you for this glory in Your majestic name. Amen.

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

Go with Them

 

                                          

Get up, go downstairs and go with them without hesitating or doubting, because I have sent them Myself.” Acts 10:20 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Sometimes in life we encounter someone who the Lord desires for us to go to. Because we do not know them or where they want us to go we hesitate even though we feel the Lords urging to go with them. When the Lord says go, we are to go.

One time when I was unemployed I felt the Lord informing me to go to a certain town. I knew no body there. As soon as I got off the bus a man approached me and inquired if I was seeking working and when informed yes was told to put my gear in the back of his truck and let’s go. I did not know him or where we were going. It ended up being the best contract ever in that vocation of thirteen years.

We must not go on our own impulses but only by the certain voice of Jehovah, especially for our own safety.

Even though we do not see the end of the trail if Christ is guiding us there we must travel it in faith that His unseen hand is guiding along the way. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Please Jehovah Kal El (voice of God) bless me to always be attentive and obedient unto Your voice when You are directing me unto others. Please bless me with discernment as to whether this is Your voice or the the scheming voice of the wicked one (satan) which will be leading me to disaster. I humbly request this in the name of He who listened and obeyed Your voice all the way to the cross 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

On Whose Terms?

 “But if they do not hear and obey, they will die by the sword [of God’s destructive judgments] And they will die [in ignorance] without [true] knowledge. Job 36:12 Holy Bible Amplified Version

We don’t seem to want to worship a God who’s too big, too authoritative. We seem more comfortable with a deity who’s more manageable.” — Mark Finley

On whose terms do you worship Jehovah?

Most people want to dictate to Jehovah and refuse to listen to His words of guidance.

That is because He dictates that we life a live of sacrifice while we dictate that He serve us not us serve Him. We want to do things our way, which in many cases only leads to hardship and trouble.

Jehovah is better than a horoscope because He knows for certain what the future holds for us.

There is only two options. Option number one is what will happen when we go our own way, disaster.

Option number two: success when we follow His guidance. That does not mean living in a mansion, driving expensive cars while vacationing in the tropics for the winter.

It means a close loving obedient life of service to Him which is rewarded with the most loving relationship possible and a Heavenly home.

Prayer: Please Jesus Hamelech ( Jesus my Lord King ) bless me to always be attentive, understanding and obedient unto Your Divine commands over every aspect of my life because I know You are the wisest of the wise and only desire what is best for me. I meekly request this in Your majestic name. 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

You had Better Listen.

 

I have also spoken to [you through] the prophets, And I gave [them] many visions [to make My will known], And through the prophets I gave parables [to appeal to your sense of right and wrong]. Hosea 12:11 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Jehovah speaks to us even today through visions, dreams, teachers, by being in nature and seeing His glory, by reading His Holy Book (the Bible) and of course by a soft whisper. He is trying to guide your life, He is trying to correct you when you are going astray and doing wicked things.

Beware. His patience only lasts for so long.

“So when you spread out your hands [in prayer, pleading for My help], I will hide My eyes from you which is the same as saying He will turn His back on you because you turned your back on Him). Isaiah 1:15 Holy Bible Amplified Version

No.

He will not do bad things unto you, that is not possible. Because He is good, how can He do anything wicked?

Rather because you refuse to listen to Him ,He will turn His back on you and refuse to listen to you and you will be easy pickings for the devil and his minions as well as your own faulty thinking and surrendering to fleshly desires.

The consequences of this is disastrous. The disaster will not happen in day or a week ( although it may). Most times it is like a small pebble that starts an avalanche. The pebble is small but as it continues down hill it picks up speed and energy. It becomes unstoppable and destructive. So too it is in the lives of the wicked. It starts out small and as time goes on it continues to grow in strength and speed until a disastrous end for the evil ends in Hell.

I have seen it with my own eyes with family and associates over the years.

Jehovah is speaking, are you listening? Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Kal El (voice of God) for blessing me with Your Divine words of love, comfort, strength and wisdom. May I always be attentive, understand what You say and be obedient unto them. I know You share Your Divine wisdom in every aspect of my life for my own good. You are such a truly wonderful Councillor. I exalt You in the name of the most Wonderful Councillor Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

A Servant’s Heart.

I am Your servant; give me understanding [the ability to learn and a teachable heart] Psalm 119:125 Holy Bible Amplified Version

The wise servant knows what is expected of him or her by the King.

The only way to achieve this is by discernment and the only way to attain that is listening to the Kings instructions. Just as an earthly king will have various and different duties for the servant each day so too does our Heavenly King. That is why we must ask Him every day to provide us with the proper instructions throughout the day.

There is a manner of conduct that is required of the Kings servant and the only manner in which the servant can know this and incorporate it into his daily life is with instruction and daily practice from the King.

It is enough for the disciple to be like his teacher, and the bond servant like his master. Matthew 10:25 Holy Bible Amplified Version

We always emulate that which we admire.

So many imitate their favourite musician by talking like they do, dressing like they do and behaving like they do (God help us with the role models in the music, TV and movie industry today).

So too must we Christians emulate our Heavenly Master as His bond servants.

Bond servants are those who serve another of their own free will. That is the only way to become a servant of Christ is by our own free will. He is too gracious to force anything on us.

The more we serve and emulate Him in our daily life the more it will be ingrained into our subconscious to serve Him and behave like Him in an appropriate manner which is pleasing unto Him without even thinking about it.

“The true character of ministry is a servant’s heart.” Author Unknown

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Helech ‘Olam (The Lord our King Forever) for the awesome privilege of being Your humble obedient servant. I extol Thee in the name of the King of Kings Jesus Christ. Amen.

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