I Pray for Every Morning

speaking

 But no one can tame the human tongue; it is a restless evil [undisciplined, unstable], full of deadly poison. James 3:8 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

One of the most important things I pray for every morning is for patience to deal with difficult folks. Wisdom, to know when to speak and when to shut up. When it is time to speak, bless me with the right words to say and the right manner and time to say them in. Wisdom to know when it is best to leave the situation because the other soul is just baiting me into a useless fight, which is a perverted hobby for them.

And you know what?

My life has a lot less stress and a lot more peace since praying these and having Jehovah bless me with granting them unto me every day.

I thank Him every time He intervenes with that soft whisper to shut my mouth, get out of there or to speak softly to the other soul.

“We can never hear the warning often enough. The tongue may be small, but oh so deadly when not under the sanctifying grace of God.” — Lin Pearson

Prayer: Oh my loving Jehovah Hoshe’ah ( The Lord Saves ) please send the Holy Spirit to watch over my mouth and save me from spewing forth filth for which I shall pay a heavy price for later. I humbly request this in the name of He whose words were only loving and healing Jesus Christ. Amen

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

We All Need a Transformation.

jesus makes you into flower

 And do not be conformed to this world [any longer with its superficial values and customs], but be transformed and progressively changed [as you mature spiritually] by the renewing of your mind [focusing on godly values and ethical attitudes], so that you may prove [for yourselves] what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect [in His plan and purpose for you]. Romans 12:2 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

I see ads all the time to transform folks. Maybe it is their teeth or their skin to make them look more beautiful on the outside.

We all need a transformation.

But the one we need the most can only come from The Holy Spirit. And, that transformation of course is the transformation of our spirit (not our heart). This is not a one off transformation but a lifetime one. We will be constantly metamorphosing until we reach Heavens Gate. Even then, we will still be changing our hearts and minds under the tutelage of the Holy Spirit.

For me, Jehovah has moved in stages just like going to school. Once I have passed grade one then it will be time to move on to grade two. And so on and so on. In forty years I am just past grade four (talk about a slow learner huh?).

There is no failing just repeating the lesson in a different manner until it is ingrained in our mind and spirit. He is patient and teaches us at our own pace.

Attending Jehovah Divine school of Righteousness is a life time commitment. Our graduation ceremonies will take place in Heaven with Jesus Christ handing out the awards. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Rabbi (God our Teacher) for blessing me with the honour of being enrolled in the most prestigious school ever. Your school of holiness and righteousness. I apologize for the times I was a difficult student. Please bless me with Your ability to be such a magnificent teacher as You to those around me so they can be enrolled in Your awesome school as well. I humbly beseech You in the name of the greatest Teacher to ever bless this planet Jesus Christ. Amen

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

I am Surprised Jehovah is So

god is compassionate

 But is [extraordinarily] patient toward you ” 2 Peter 3:9 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

I am surprised Jehovah is so patient with me.

Year after year I make stupid mistakes. Year after year I fight with Him when He asks me to do something I do not want to do.

Year after years I fight with Him when He tells me not to do something I want to do.

Instead of exhaustively shaking His head and says:Oh Joseph,Oh Joseph, Oh Joseph, how long must you be so obstinate?

He says: “ I know you have a heart dedicated to me and that you are a weak fleshling but do not worry I am a patient, loving, forgiving Father. I know you are a good son whose ultimate desire is to love and obey me. Just keep trying son, we are walking this life together through both your failures and your victories.”

Our ground of hope is that God does not weary of mankind.” — Ralph W. Sockman

Oh wow, what a truly awesome God I love. I deeply desire to be like Him towards others as He is towards me.

Don’t you?

“Patience and perseverance have a magical effect before which difficulties disappear and obstacles vanish.” — John Quincy Adams

Prayer: Oh praise You my Beloved Jehovah EL RACHUM (Jehovah is a Merciful God ) Jehovah EL NASA (Forgiving God) for being so merciful and patient with this difficult child of Yours. Please bless me with the same mercy and love towards others todays as You have towards me every day. I humbly beseech You in the name of He whose great love for me lead Him to patiently endure the torturous cross Jesus Christ. Amen

May Christ bless you with love, joy and peace today and every day.

This is the Formula With

CHIEF DUTY

 

This is the formula with Jehovahs call upon our daily life.

I have changed the words to first person so it sounds as if Jehovah is talking with me. See how it sounds when it is read like He is talking with you personally.

His commands to me are: Wait for the Lord(Psalm 27:14).
Be still before Lord and wait patiently for Him(Psalm 37:7).
Maintain love and justice, and wait for my God always(Hosea 12:6).

These are the benefits of waiting for the Lord: Blessed are all who wait for Him! He rises to show me compassion” (Isaiah 30:18).
They that wait on the Lord shall renew their strength(Isaiah 40:31).
Surely, this is my God; I trust (waited) in him, and he saved me(Isaiah 25:9).

My declaration to Him: Yes, Lord, walking in the way of your laws, I wait for you; your name and renown are the desires of my heart(Isaiah 26:8).
I wait for the Lord, my soul waits, and in his word I put my hope. My soul waits for the Lord more than watchmen for the morning(Psalm 130:5, 6).

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Emunah (God is faithful) that when I am faithful unto You, You are ten fold more faithful towards me in return. This is the greatest investment of all. I praise You in the name of Your most obedient son 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

They go Together.

laugh at fools

 A rebellious and stubborn people, Who walk in the way that is not good, [following] after their own thoughts and intentions Isaiah 65:2 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Supidness and stubbornness go together like peanut butter and jam.

I know a woman that cannot eat greasy food, if she does she violently vomits after just one bite. One day we were at a take away and she ordered greasy chicken. I told her not to purchase it or she would become violently ill. She insisted that that would not happen this time. As soon as we settled in her van and she took one bite she swung the door open and puked her eyeballs out.

You see, she was stubborn.

She knew she was not to eat that junk yet insisted that this time she would not get sick (even though she did every time previous to that). That was very stupid because she paid a very dear price for her stubbornness.

How many times has Jehovah instilled in us not to do something yet we stubbornly and stupidly return to our wicked ways. When the disaster comes crashing down on us because we were stupid and stubborn and refuse to listen to Jehovah do we not blame Him?

How stupid is that?

Stupidness and stubbornness is also arrogant.

When I was a tree planter and would try to help the rookies who knew nothing of planting there were some who insisted on doing it their way. Even though, that meant they worked just as hard but made a penitence of money that the rookies did that were respectful and listened and obeyed as they were shown. The dumbo’s blame everyone and everything but themselves for their disastrous planting season.

How many times has Jehovah tried to show us a better way to live yet we give Him the finger and go out and live how we see fit. When disaster comes (and it always does) we blame everyone but ourselves.

The stupid and stubborn are self condemned to a life of misery and suffering. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer:I thank you Jehovah Kal El (voice of God) for blessing me with patience and a strong arm when I am a stupid, stubborn obstinate child of Yours. I know You only desire what is best for me and must use strong methods when I am a disobedient child of Yours. I praise You in the name of He who was strong with His disciples when necessary Jesus Christ. Amen

May the light of Christs love shine brightly in your heart today and every day

It Helps to Remember

VOICE OF GOD

 When the friendship and counsel of God were over my tent. Job 29:4 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

When trouble comes where ya gonna go?

For me it is either in my sanctuary (a winterized tent or in Gods Cathedral (nature) which His Divine Word (the Bible).

It is in these quiet places that I pour my heart out to my beloved big daddy. He patiently listens and then either speaks directly to me in a soft reassuring gentle voice or we have a little Bible study. I cherish both.

It is advisable to bring along a recording device to record what has been said by His immaculate wise voice to be contemplated upon later so that His advice can be more deeply digested and then put into action.

These two places are perfect because it is in the quiet places that we can hear His voice all the more clearer and we can talk all the more intimate with Him.

“On days when life is difficult and I feel overwhelmed, as I do fairly often, it helps to remember in my prayers that all God requires of me is to trust Him and be His friend. I find I can do that.” — Bruce Larson

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Shammah ( The Lord is Present) for always being present and available when I so desperately need to talk with You, my closest confident. Thank you that Your gentle words remind me to always trust You completely because You have everything under control. I praise You in the name of He who had everything under control while with His disciples no matter how much the storm raged Jesus Christ. Amen

Whatever is beautiful, whatever is meaningful, whatever brings you joy, may you be blessed with an abundance of it this every day this year.

Lived Out in Me.

NOT TRY, TRUST

 The apostles said to the Lord, “Increase our faith [our ability to confidently trust in God and in His power].”Luke 17:5 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

There is a reason we need to humbly request the Lord to increase our faith.

The number one reason is because as we increase our faith (which means trust) in our Beloved we get to know Him ,love Him and worship Him more and more thereby getting ever closer to Him.

The number two reason is that when our faith increases so too does our confidence in the Lord whenever satan comes a knocking. Having confidence in the Lord terrifies satan and his minions. Number three is because when others observe our faith it is a great witness to the power of Christ. This is a powerful witnessing tool.

Show me the way, Lord, let my light shine As an example of good to mankind; Help them to see the patterns of Thee, Shining in beauty, lived out in me. —Neuer

Mind you, we cannot increase our faith without suffering but in the aftermath of our sufferings we are every deeper in gratitude for Jehovahs loving providence. This brings us closer to Him not just on special occasion but in beautiful daily communion with Him. What a blessing that is.

“God delights to increase the faith of his children. We ought, instead of wanting no trials before victory, no exercise for patience, to be willing to take them from God’s hands as a means. Trials, obstacles, difficulties, and sometimes defeats, are the very food of faith.” — George Müller

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Emunah (God is faithful) for being faithful unto this loving child of Yours that You have delivered the right amount of trials and tribulations, sorrows and pain to bring me ever closer to You in faith, understanding and love. I exalt You in the name of He who suffered these in extremes all the to and including the cross for me Jesus Christ. Amen.

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