What is Wisdom?

To one person the Spirit gives the ability to give wise advice; to another the same Spirit gives a message of special knowledge. 1 Corinthians 12:8 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Wisdom is having knowledge and putting that knowledge into practice.     

Where do we receive the best knowledge?     

From the tutorship of the Holy Spirit.     

voice of god                        

Our life here and now will determine where we spend our next life in eternity, and yes, there is an eternal life after this one. Therefore we should live it wisely. Invest your time in Jehovahs Heavenly Kingdom and your place with in it.                                               

Folks invest their money and time for a comfortable retirement while on this earth, how much do they invest in their eternal home?               

No, it will not be a retirement home. Jesus has work for us that will be enjoyable.                     

Live each moment as if the next you were to meet Jesus because you never know when that moment will arrive Joseph a son of Jehovah               

Eat, drink and be merry for tomorrow we may die. Anonymous This is the mantra of the fool that dams them into Hell. Please do not be so unwise as to live this destructive manner of life.

Prayer: Please Holy Spirit help me live a life that will please my loving Jesus Hamelech ( Jesus my Lord King ) – Psalm 98:6. I look forward to the day when we can share a huge hug and I hear Him say to me:”Well done good and faithful servant.” I look forward to spending an eternity with the one I worship above all others. Please bless me with the opportunity to share this wonderful relationship with others so they may join in this royal family. I thank you and humbly ask this in the name of my adoring King, Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Do You Give it Back?

CHRISTIAN DEVOTION

 “Blessed be God . . ., who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God” (2 Corinthians 1:3,4). The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation.

Those of us who have been around the bush long enough have been through the meat grinder once or twice haven’t we. In those times of tribulation hasn’t God comforted you and encouraged you?

Hasn’t He in His divine love healed you?

So, where is your gratitude?

When someone does something nice for you, shouldn’t you return the favor?

When you see someone suffering shouldn’t you go to them and emulate what God did for you?

You know, the most painful and horrible experience in my life was being in an abusive relationship and the healing that took place afterwards.

In my teaching days I witnessed a lot of hurt and pain because of students being in an abusive situation. It broke my heart. I would sit them down and share my experience with them. Because I had walked that mile in their shoes they listened to me. In the end it helped guide many of them to Jesus.

Please for the love of Christ and your fellow men, when you see someone suffering reach  out to them.

Not only can it be a comforting and encouraging experience to them, it can also be an opportunity to share Jesus with them. This in turn may help bring them into our Holy family.

If you are experiencing a time of great difficulty and or pain and are reading this, take heart. God is not stupid. Perhaps He is allowing this experience to train you to help others in the future.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Uzam (The Lord is our Strength in Trouble) – Is 49:26 for blessing me with Your strength, comfort and encouragement when I endured the fiery times of trouble, anguish and confusion. Please bless me with the opportunity to pay it forward to someone who is experiencing the fire storms of life to help them and to guide them to the greatest Strengthener of all, You. In the name of He who was strong enough to endure the agony of the cross for His love of me, Jesus Christ I humbly ask. 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

How do You Take Care Of ?

GENTLE STREAM WINDING THROUGH FOREST

Those members of the body which seem to be weaker are necessary. —1 Corinthians 12:22 New Living Translation.

Now if we are a family of Christ as Jehovah as our Father then there are big brothers and sisters and little brothers and sisters. The big brothers and sisters are the ones that have a deep understanding and experience with God. Their walk with God is strong. The babies are the new members of our family or the ones through no fault of their own are weak.

The big brothers and sisters should not be critical or haughty of the babies. They should nurture them, encourage them and be respectful towards them.   

The more mature Christian is to be loving, patient, encouraging, and mentoring to those who are not as far along the walk to Heaven as themselves. Joseph a son of Jehovah

The babies should listen to and obey their big brothers and sisters. When they speak to them with love about areas in their life that needs to be corrected they should not be insulted or hurt by the actions.

If we all behaved like this in the churches the churches would not decrease. Many churches are losing members because of the mean spiritedness of other members. Those hypocritical members are judgmental and condescending to the babies in the family. The babies are hurt and give the middle finger to the church and walk away. Indeed how many new members of the family walk away from Jesus because of this? I tell you true, their blood will be on the guiltiest hands (yes blood. Because they walk away from Jesus because of you, you are the reason they are going to hell.).

How do you think that makes Jesus feel?

Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers. Galatians 6:10 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Heseh (God is love) for lovingly blessing me with the Holy Spirit to teach me and help me to be the child You desire me to be. Please bless me to emulate Him to come along side those who are not as mature in their walk with You as I am (that does not mean childish but rather inexperienced) and to lovingly guide them to a deeper loving, obedient relationship with You. Thank you for the big brothers and sisters whom You have sent to mentor me and may I emulate them as well. I sincerely request this in the name of the greatest Teacher Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Do You Give Honey or Do You Shoot Arrows?

 

WORDS HEAL IN LOVE A gentle answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger. Proverbs 15:1, New International Version

Please, always remember this verse. Write it down and keep it with you.

Do you speak words of encouragement when others are enduring difficult times? Or, do you pour hot burning colas of pain on others?

Which words do you use?

Do you comfort them and encourage them or do you criticize them and mock them?

Do you always try to say something positive to people or do you take every opportunity to cruelly mock them?

Remember this as well:” What goes around comes around.”

How you behave with others will be done back to you at sometime.

I personally prefer to uplift and encourage others. In doing so I am following in the footsteps of my beloved Jesus.

God does not comfort us to make us comfortable, but to make us comforters. J. H. Jowett

Prayer: Please oh Jehovah Shalom (God of our peace) guide my words that they may be healing and soothing to all I encounter today. In the name of the sweetest orator Jesus Christ we pray. 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

Warn Those Who Are

BEING TORN DOWN SPIRITUALLY

 And we urge you, brothers and sisters, warn those who are idle and disruptive, encourage the disheartened, help the weak, be patient with everyone. 1 Thessalonians 5:14 The Holy Bible New International Version

Notice it does not say to support the lazy trouble makers?

I see so many good hearted but wrong minded support the lazy drunks and drug addicts and welfare bums that foolishly believe we owe them a free ride.

That is wrong.

You are not helping them but hurting them by encouraging them to continue on in a destructive lifestyle for both themselves and for society (because many commit crimes to support their habit which hurts innocent folks).

There is an old saying that idle hands are the devils playground. Do you notice that drug addicts are also habitual criminals? Perhaps doing time in a third world prison would do them more good than holding their hand and encouraging this lifestyle because there is no repercussions for their actions.

They are to be warned that their lifestyle is wrong. If they choose to continue on then do so on their own and face harsh consequences for their actions.

Our financial, mental and spiritual efforts are to go to help those who are willing to put forward an effort to help themselves.

To support lazy bums and drunks and drug addicts is a sin because it is a waste of our resources which should go to help those who are prepared to help themselves. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Please Jehovah Jireh ( God provides ) bless me with providing me with guidance to those who are in need and with the wisdom to differentiate between those in need and those who are too lazy to support themselves. I humbly request this in the name of He who provided only to those who put forward and effort to help themselves Jesus Christ. Amen

May you be blessed with plentiful opportunities to share these with those around you today.

Have You Ever Worked For

GREATEST CONTENTMENT

Work willingly at whatever you do, as though you were working for the Lord rather than for people. Colossians 3:23Holy Bible, New Living Translation Version

Have you ever worked for the nit pickers before?

Nit picker are those that no matter how good your work is they can always find something wrong with it. They take all the steam out of your desire to excel at what you are doing. This is a real tragedy when the nit pickers are parents.

It takes a lot of work and therapy to get over their poison they inject into their childrens impressionable minds.

Teachers can have the same short term affect.

When I do work I like to step back and ask my Heavenly Father if He is pleased with what has been done.

Most times He is and there is a warm feeling of satisfaction flowing through me.

When He isn’t there is no scolding. He just redirects my effort and then I step back and marvel at what we have accomplished and gratefully thank Him. There has been numerous times when He guides me to do something that I have no desire to do but do it with great gusto to please Him, which gives immeasurable pleasure to me.                                   

Most times when the project is completed I see what He was doing and the finished project looks fantastic even though it looked stupid and was laughed at by others or looked ugly but was beautiful when completed.

Sometimes we will not see the purpose of His task until we enter our Heavenly home. That is okay though because we take satisfaction in knowing what we did pleased our Heavenly King in the here and now.

Work for Jehovah, not man. It is appreciated so much more. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Helech ‘Olam (The Lord our King Forever) for the esteem of being Your humble, obedient, loyal servant. It is the greatest delight that can be offered to me. I exalt You in the name of the King of Kings 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.

Good Shall Come to Thee.

CHRIST'S LOVE

 God gives wisdom, knowledge, and joy to those who please him. But if a sinner becomes wealthy, God takes the wealth away and gives it to those who please him. Ecclesiastes 2:26 Holy Bible New Living Translation.

Have you ever heard the old saying:”Money comes, money goes and in the end we are still unsatisfied.” It is oh so true.

I have seen many chase the illusive dream of having enough money only to be unsatisfied and want more. It is not the money they want but what the money can buy. Money cannot buy happiness is very true.

On the other hand, those that live a Godly life which is pleasing to Jehovah are always blessed with peace, love, joy, wisdom and purpose in their lives.

I know, having lived in both worlds. Doing Jehovahs will guarantees that not only will our physical daily requirement be met but our spiritual cup shall over runneth in abundance.

“Live to please God, and He will breathe on thee His peace. Seek His glory, and He will make thy heart His home. Do His will, and thereby good shall come to thee.” — F. B. Meyer

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah El Deah (God of knowledge) for blessing me with Your treasure trove of amazing knowledge. It has enriched my life beyond expectation. Please bless me with the opportunity and resources to share this precious gift with others. I humbly, gratefully request this in the name of the wisest of the wise 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.
