Is Becoming and Appropriate For.

WORSHIP

Rejoice in the Lord, you righteous ones; Praise is becoming and appropriate for those who are upright [in heart—those with moral integrity and godly character].Psalm 33:1 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Praise is appropriate for those walking in harmony with Jehovah because it is respectful to be grateful to the One who abundantly showers us with His blessings. It is wiser to be grateful for the things Jehovah blesses me with than to pout because I cannot have my own way. Not only does it make our Heavenly Fathers heart dance with joy but He reciprocates back to us ten fold more. You ain’t experienced nothing until you have experience Jehovahs joy in your heart.

We should rejoice because the Holy Spirit has taught us and helps us live a life of integrity. This prevents us from falling into deep shameful and disastrous behavior. Oh it may seem for a while like the wicked are prospering this disposition but Jehovahs righteous hand shall strike them suddenly with no mercy.

We are to rejoice because when we have Godly character that means we emulate Jehovah and that is the best character to possess. As well that means we are close to Him and that is the best blessing of all. It makes for a much more contented life. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: I sing glory, glory hallelujah unto you my Beloved Jehovah Jireh ( God provides ) for constantly providing for this adoring child of Yours. I worship You in the name of He with whom I worship Jesus Christ. Amen

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

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

Let Us Also Work for It

HARD WORK

 And He did this to fully equip and perfect the saints (God’s people) for works of service. Ephesians 4:12 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

I remember when being a tutor in China oh so many times a Chinese would come to me and beg me to help them pass an exam so they could get a visa to Canada. When I asked them when they exam was, most times their reply was in a month. As their level of English was very low they were informed that it would take a lot of work but could be accomplished. Their reaction was that as the teacher that was my responsibility. In other words, they expected me to do all the work while they put minimal effort into the task. Of course they failed miserably and of course their reaction was always they same. They blamed me.

How many have the same attitude towards Jehovah.

Say there is going to be a test at school. Instead of studying for the test the night before you fervently pray for Jehovah to give you the knowledge to pass the test. When you fail you cry baby to Jehovah that it is His fault when in reality it is your own fault for being so lazy and irresponsible.

Here is the way it works properly.

Sometimes Jehovah will do the work for you because the task is too great. This is to reveal His power and wisdom to us which brings praise, respect and adoration.

Sometimes we have to work in conjunction with the Holy Spirit. This is to teach us to put forward and effort while trusting in the Holy Spirits guidance, no matter how unconventional it is.

Sometimes Jehovah provides the tools but we have to do the work. This is to teach us to take responsibility and to teach us to have confidence in the skills Jehovah has blessed us with.

“Whatsoever we beg of God, let us also work for it.” — Jeremy Taylor

Prayer: Thank you ELOHIM YAKOL (God, the Most Able) for blessing me with being able to determine which form of work is necessary for me to accomplish the task You have assigned for me to do in my privilege of being my Beloved King Jesus in Heavens free will servant. I exalt You in His magnificent name. Amen

Wishing you a house full of sunshine, hearts full of cheer and love that grows deeper each day of the year. Welsh blessing

The Godly Are Bettered By

WE ARE PURIFIED

Through Him we also have access by faith into this [remarkable state of] grace in which we [firmly and safely and securely] stand. Let us rejoice in our hope and the confident assurance of [experiencing and enjoying] the glory of [our great] God [the manifestation of His excellence and power]. And not only this, but [with joy] let us exult in our sufferings and rejoice in our hardships, knowing that hardship (distress, pressure, trouble) produces patient endurance; and endurance, proven character (spiritual maturity); and proven character, hope and confident assurance [of eternal salvation]. Romans 5:2-4 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

It is in the hard times we learn the most and mature the most as we are guided by the Holy Spirit. We do not become bitter and self pitying like those in the world. Rather, we rejoice in them afterwards because we can see Jehovahs strong, secure hand leading us through them.

It is in our sufferings that Jehovah reveals the most of His love and healing which draws us ever closer to Him which is the only way for that to occur. We do not pout and play the blame game like those in the world because we understand that it occurred for our betterment.

Each of these brings stronger confidence in our loving Heavenly Fathers providence in every part of our lives. Because we are His children we always have access to Him and He is never too busy for us but takes an active role in our lives.

For these blessings we should continually praise Him and rejoice over Him continually every day.

When we know that the angel of death shall come a calling (and I believe that Jehovah always alerts us that our time will soon be up, even though we do not know the hour or the day. This is because of what has been witnessed in the palliative care in hospitals and volunteering in seniors homes) Jehovah shall cause us to reflect back on our walk with Him and blesses us with assurance of the Heavenly home that is awaiting us.

As the wicked are hurt by the best things, so the godly are bettered by the worst.” — William Jenkyn

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ‘Uzam (The Lord is our Strength in Trouble) for strengthening me, comforting me and encouraging me through lo the many trials, tribulations and sorrows that have come my way in my walk with You. I would never had made it without You gentle strong hand supporting me. I praise You in the name of He who strengthened the weak as He walked amongst us 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

Compare Yourself To.

NO CONCIET

 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

What is pride—but the worship of self?

Why do you think folks have themselves covered with tattoos but as an act of self worship?

Why do you think social media is so reverent in society today except as a means to puff up ones own importance? The list goes on and on.

Compare yourself to Christ and then see how good you are. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Why are folks so reluctant to give their time and labour for the good of others, and the glory of God? Because they want it for ease, and the enjoyment of self! As well, they want it for bragging rights of look at all the toys I have.

Imagine all the good we could accomplish if everyone gave one tenth of their earnings to a worthy cause. What good are your toys compared to the riches of Heaven stored up for the dutiful good stewards?

When we are Christians we put Christ first, others second and self last. It is hard and most times we receive little recognition from others for our efforts, even those we help. 

A warning for those considering becoming the Heavenly Kings servants, when you become a servant unto Christ expect a lot of suffering. Indeed, Christ spoke more of suffering than He did pleasures of being His servants.

Being a servant unto Christ is the hardest endeavor you shall ever participate in but it has eternal Heavenly rewards. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Helech ‘Olam (The Lord our King Forever)for the wonderful privilege of being a humble servant to such a magnificent Heavenly King. I give all praise in Your awesome name. 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

We Know Not When.

JESUS' GUIDANCE

This is what the Lord says: “I am going to remove you from the face of the earth. You will die this year!” Jeremiah. 28:16

We know not when our time of departure from this world shall come upon us.

If the word departure sounds like something you hear concerning a trip it is well minded that that is what death is.

It is a trip from a limited fleshly existence on this planet to a trip to an eternal spiritual world.

With this in view just as you plan a vacation trip so should you plan your spiritual eternal destiny with ever more diligence.

Earthly trips can and do go array but there is no deviation from your eternal spiritual destiny.

Do not be casual for one moment and say that you will dedicate more of your life unto Christ when _____ fill in the blank.

The length of life in an individual is the most uncertain thing in existence.

What is it that hinders your devotion unto Christ?

Is it that you must finish school first?

What makes you so cock sure that your time on earth will allow it?

Is it that you have a family to care for or until you have paid off your mortgage?

Then you are a fool.

Look around and see how many young widows and widowers there are.

Is it that you need to pay off your mortgage first?

See the for sale signs that are there because the slaves unto the bank died before they could pay off their mortgage.

The time to dedicate your daily life unto Christ is now because you do not even know if you will awake to see the morning sun. Then it will be too late and you will have forfeited your eternal Heavenly home because of your earthly cares.

In whatever state you die this year—that you will be forever!

Will Christ say to you: “Well done good and faithful servant.” or will He say to you:” Get away from Me because I do not know you.”

Put Christ first in your daily lives and allow Him to help you take care of the earthly cares of daily life. I say help you because yes He may take care of a situation for us however most times we must be prepared to work in harmony with the Holy Spirit in our daily lives to succeed.

The time to dedicate our lives to Jesus is now because there may not be a tomorrow. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Oh how I continuously praise You my Beloved Jesus Hamelech ( Jesus my Lord King ) for the unsurpassing privilege of being Your humbly obedient servant. Although many of the tasks You have assigned this submissive servant to do have been exceedingly challenging, they were always rewarding in accomplishing to make Your heart dance with joy as You make mine in service unto You. I praise You in Your magnificent name. Amen

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

Did They Not Have Every Right To

trust in God

 Jesus said to them, “Why are you afraid? Do you still have no faith and confidence [in Me]?” Mark 4:40 Holy Bible, Amplified Version

The boat was sinking during a terrible storm. The disciples, who were experienced fishermen believed they were going to die. Did they not have every right to be concerned?

No, they did not.

When Jesus asked the disciples do you still, this implies that they had plenty of experience with Jesus during disasters.

Have they not learned their lessons yet?

Before you are harsh on them, reflect back on your own life. When you were a baby Christian with little experience, you were expected to have little faith and trust, however, as you mature in your walk with Christ your faith is expected to become stronger.

For me, whenever disaster comes my way the initial reaction is panic. It is quickly followed by crying out unto Jehovah. Then their is reflection upon His past deliverance and a thankful prayer saying with confidence I know it is in Your hands Father and I know You will help me. Thank You.

Then their is calm reassurance during the wicked storms.

We are expected to call out unto Jehovah but we are also expected to have trust in His deliverance. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Shammah ( The Lord is Present) for always being present in my life.

Please expand my trust in You in every trial and tribulation You are right there walking through them with me.

Please remind me of Your past deliverance to reassure me of Your present one.

I praise You and sincerely request this in the name of He who always walked and continuously walks with You now my glorious best friend Jesus Christ. Amen

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