Fantastic Free Advice

GODS GUIDEBOOK

 

 “Keep this Book of the Law always on your lips; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful.” (Joshua 1:8 New International Version)

Let this always be our first move.

Before you make any decisions in life may I offer you some advice from an experienced old man?

I have heard that the Jews have a custom. Before making any decision they pray for three days first.

Let’s expand on that shall we?

Let’s pray and read the Bible for three days first.

If someone is trying the pressure tactics on you, whether it be to buy something, sign a contract or go somewhere or do something no, don’t walk away, RUN away. It is a trap!!! They are offering you sugar but really it is rubbish. When you stand your ground and REFUSE to surrender to their scams they will walk away looking for another stupid sucker.

When you take the time to read the Bible and pray it is saying to God: Okay big daddy, I know You are the smartest kid on the block. I know You love me and have promised to take care of me, so I will wait for Your divine guidance and trust Your providence.” You may not like His conclusion in the short run, but in the long run He will never let you down.

I was once offered what I thought was a jewel of a contract. The benefits alone were very generous, as was the pay. I informed them I had to wait three days and pray. While reading the Bible the reoccurring theme came up about laying snares to catch the innocent. It broke my heart, but I turned the contract down. Another teacher took the job. For three months he was always bragging about how good it was. We were green with envy. Then they sprang their trap. He was treated worse than you would a dog. He was given twice the classes they told him, had many extra duties dumped on him and had to come a running and teach class at his masters every beck and call (for no extra pay). Then he was the laughing stock of the teaching community. Now I danced with exalted joy for listening to the wise advice given by the best guidance councilor (the Holy Spirit).

Do you understand now children?

We have limited view of things. God has the WHOLE view of them.

Where are you going to go for advice? So let your first step ALWAYS be:

1) Wait. He who rushes in is a fool in a hurry for a disaster. Joseph a son of Jehovah

2) Pray: Think of praying as sharing a problem with your most trusted friend. Don’t be afraid. God loves you and wants you to pour out your heart to Him like a beautiful offering. “The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much” (James 5:16).

I call on you, my God, for you will answer me; turn your ear to me and hear my prayer. Psalms 16:7 3)

Meditate.

Now meditating does not mean sitting like a pretzel and contemplating your belly button lint. What it does mean is to read the word of God and to dink it in. Please do not try to gulp it down like a cheap beer. Rather take your time and sip it down like fine wine. Many times a verse will jump out at you. Write it down. Think about what it is saying. Pray for God to open your eyes to the awesome wisdom He is revealing to you.

Finally, with complete faith in God, take action. No worries, no regrets, just complete and total faith in our Holy God and His providence for us.

In the LORD I take refuge. Psalms 11:1 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

The thief’s purpose is to steal, kill and destroy. My purpose is to give life in all its fullnessJohn 10:10 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

I would like to close by saying: good luck.” But that would be stupid. It’s not luck, it’s Gods gift to you. Take it from an old fart. It really works. I am living proof.

Faith without action is no faith at all. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Emet (God of truth) for blessing me with this recipe to avoid the schemes and scams of satans minions and to follow the true path of life that can only be given by He who is the God of truth. I praise You in the name of He who set the example of living a life of truth 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. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Dangerous Booby Traps

GODS GUIDEBOOK

He guides us.

Do not forsake wisdom, and she will protect you; love her, and she will watch over you. Proverbs 4:6 New International Version

Someone once said life is like going through a minefield. There are dangerous booby traps hidden everywhere.

From my experience that is oh so very true.

I am a very gullible and trusting man. It has gotten me into untold numbers of bad and sometimes dangerous situations.

Little by little our beloved Father taught me to use the best mine detector. It consists of praying, reading and obeying.

Every morning I pray: “Lord, not my will but Thy will be done.

As I drink from the living waters (The Bible) during morning devotion time open my eyes to what You want me to know and burn it into my minds so as to constantly carry it with me.”

Then He graciously opens my mind to verses and their meanings as I drink them in slowly and ask to have them carried with me throughout the day.

Sometimes when approached by a shady character or maybe tempted to go somewhere a strong feeling encompasses me to get away. It is then that the verse or scripture comes to mind. I do not understand but by faith obey.

Later through circumstances the danger is revealed to me. Then I always laugh and say in great gratitude and wonder: “Thank you my beloved. You are truly the best mine detector there ever was, is or will be.”

Do you want to know how to avoid the booby traps out there?

Read your Bible every morning, pray for Gods divine guidance and listen to Him when He speaks to you.

Trusting Jesus is not an option, but a priority. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Thank you Holy Spirit my Rohi (Holy Spirit my great Sheppard) for guiding me every day away from the vicious ravenous wolves that lay traps to abuse me. I give thanks in the name of the wisest and strongest Sheppard Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.

He is Sneaky.

SPIRITUAL STRENGTH

Watch and pray, lest you enter into temptation. The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.” Matthew 26:41 New King James Version

Satan is sneaky.

He does not destroy you all at once. He begins with little thoughts. They slowly grow like cancer. When they become cemented in your mind they lead to actions. These actions lead to destruction in the form of addictions, cheating and others.

So for example there is a beautiful woman at work. You catch a quick glance at her. You start thinking about her and become obsessed with her until you invite her out from a drink. The drink leads to a hotel room. The hotel room leads to an affair and then your marriage is destroyed.

The best defense is to memorize Bible Verses and have them written out and carry them with you. When the temptation comes, whip out the Bible verses and tell Satan to go take a hike while calling on Jesus to protect your mind.

Yes it is just as important to call upon Jesus.

Satan is smarter and stronger than you but is a wimp before Christ.   Joseph- Anthony: Green

Pray for Jesus to destroy your bad habits because they are too strong to defeat on your own.  I know. There was one in particular that had me enslaved.  I tired therapy, diet, hypnosis and my own strength. They all failed. When I completely surrendered it to Christ the chains that held me were instantly smashed and I have never returned to that habit since.

 

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Yeshua (God our rescuer) for delivering me from the destructive jaws of Satan and his minions. I thank you for this protection day by day, moment by moment. I with great gratitude give thanks for this magnificent blessing in the name of He who defeated Satan on the cross Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.

You Can Not Find It.

GODS GUIDEBOOK

For whatever things were written before were written for our learning, that we through the patience and comfort of the Scriptures might have hope. Romans 15:4 New King James Version    

                                                                                                             

Any experience you are going through you cannot find it not happening to someone before in the Bible.                                                                                                              

Therefore, whenever you are experiencing any difficulty or are looking for guidance in any situation in life, why not go to the Book of Experience, the Bible?                      

Before you begin your search always pray to Jehovah Rabbi (God our teacher) where to look and to open your mind and heart to what is being said.                             

As I progress in my Christian life it constantly amazes me how what I went through, someone else has already gone through before in the Bible.                                             

As well it is amazing the results I get when I learn from the examples of those before me in the Bible.                                                                                                      

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Rabbi (God our teacher) for the marvelous blessing of Your wonderful book of life, the Bible. Please bless me with the wisdom to always turn to it when experiencing anything in my life whether it be the storms or whether it be the smooth sailing. I humbly request this in the name of He who walked with His disciples on the mountaintop as well as through the tempest at sea Jesus Christ. Amen.                    

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.

Stop and Pray.

MEEKNESS

Whenever you are arrested and brought to trial, do not worry beforehand about what to say. Just say whatever is given you at the time, for it is not you speaking, but the Holy Spirit. Mark 13:11 New International Version

 

Before I say anything whether in a letter or in a debate or disagreement with anybody I try to make it a practice to always stop and pray for the Holy Spirit to guide my words.

 

It is difficult to master this technique but it has prevented a lot of foot in mouth disease that is regretted later (You know foot in mouth disease? That is where you say something that puts your foot in your mouth. In other words you say something that makes you feel stupid later).

 

This is especially good to prevent being trapped by the sicko’s that enjoy baiting you and prevents a lot of disagreements from become yelling matches where you say things in the heat of the moment you regret later.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Chanan (God of grace) for teaching me the art of grace in conversations and correspondence.

 

I know as a Christian I represent Your voice when I speak so it is vitally important to pray for Your divine wisdom before speaking or writing.

 

I gratefully thank you in the name of he who always spoke gracefully in when the occasion called for it to be done forcefully Jesus Christ. Amen.

 

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.

It Is Not Natural.

RESTLESS HEART

Don’t worry about anything; instead pray about everything; tell God your needs and don’t forget to thank him for his answers. If you do this, you will experience God’s peace, which is far more wonderful than the human mind can understand.” Philippians 4:6-7

 

Worry is natural, faith is not.

When we encounter problems in our lives worry is the natural tendency.

But consider this: how many times has worry solved your problems?

Praying to Jehovah Jireh (God our provider) and having faith that He will answer is not natural, it is spiritual.

 

From my experience it has taken many years to develop faith so strong as to never doubt and even then doubt still occurs sometimes. It started out with little things that were prayed for and were answered. Gradually over time bigger and bigger challenges are given over to Jehovah and faith grows stronger.

 

Another help is to pray and ask the Holy Spirit to bless you with the power to have faith.

And of course, do not forget your manners and say thank you.

After all, why should Jehovah give to an ungrateful whining child?

An added bonus in being grateful is that the more grateful you are the more your life is filled with joy at both the smallest and the biggest answered prayers and the more joyous your life is in general.

Oh yeah, another bonus is how amazingly close you become with Jehovah Abba (God our father).

 

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Shalom (God of peace) for the blessing of amazing peace You envelope me in as I place my life in Your gracious hands. Please remind me to always humbly give thanks for Your abundant blessings as they come. I give thanks for these blessings and ask for this blessing in the name of He who had faith total in You as he walked amongst us Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.

I Shall Not Be Moved.

SHOUT IT

I have set the Lord always before me; Because He is at my right hand I shall not be moved. Therefore my heart is glad, and my glory rejoices; My flesh also will rest in hope. Psalms 16:8-9 New King James Version

 

Therefore: in consequence of that; as a result;   www.dictionary.com

To set the Lord before me indicated that we are following the Lords path in our life. The right hand is the one of honesty and strength.

Therefore these verses indicates that we trust and obey the Lords leading and we are not moved by others opinions or motives.

I do not conform to what others think I ought to do but rather to what I know Jehovah has made me to do. Joseph- Anthony: Green

As a consequence of this our hearts are filled with gladness and we know that our glory comes from Christ so we rejoice in His divine leading and strength in our lives.

Our hope is not like hoping to win a lottery (good luck) but rather in the assurance of a rock solid guarantee.

The guarantee of course is confidence that we have a calling, we are walking in that calling, and the Lord provides for us in that calling.

As a result of this we have a guarantee of a permanent Heavenly reward which brings joy to our spirit.

 

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Rohi (Jesus our great Sheppard) for blessing me with a divine calling and the Heavenly joy that comes with walking this path with You. I exalt You in Your magnificent name. Amen.                                                                                                             

May the sunshine of Jesus sweet love bless you today and every day.

Was Written to Teach Us.

flowers caressing blazing red cross

For everything that was written in the past was written to teach us, so that through the endurance taught in the Scriptures and the encouragement they provide we might have hope. Romans 15:4 New International Version

 

I believe it was Winston Churchill who said that those who do not learn form the past are dammed to repeat its mistakes again.

I have found this to be oh so true.

How many people go from one disastrous relationship to the next?

One encouraging thing I have found in the Bible is that the heroes were people just like us.

 

Many of them kept on stumbling though one disaster to the next. Finally they submit to Jehovah and they find their purpose and obey. That does not mean it is easy.

As well there are numerous accounts of the saints who endured a lot of hardship. It is from them we can and should learn of perseverance and faith. It has brought me a lot of comfort and encouragement through some extremely difficult times.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Rabbi (God our teacher) for blessing me with the honest scriptures that give me encouragement from those who have gone on before me that all hope is never lost for those who place their faith and obedience in Your wise hands. I humbly thank you in the name of He who forgave those who betrayed Him and gave them strength to obey Your holy calling in their lives Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the sunshine of Jesus sweet love bless you today and every day

Do All in the Name Of.

awsome exploding pink red and yellow rose

And whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him. Colossians 3:17 New King James Version

Every day I pray for the Lord to guide my words and actions that it will bring praise and glory to Him. That is all that counts to me.

Others may ridicule me and chastise me but I do not care, I am secure in knowing hat I am pleasing He whom I love dearly.  And believe me, in todays world there is a lot more chastisement and ridicule than praise.

“How would telling people to be nice to one another get a man crucified? What government would execute Mister Rodgers or Captain Kangaroo?” Philip Yancey

When some praise me I am sure to deflect the praise to Christ.

And you know what?

For every opportunity that arises no matter how big or small when I serve my Master my heart is so filled with blissfulness I cannot but help just close my eyes right there on the spot and joyfully thank Him for the blessing of serving Him by serving others.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Heseh (God of love) for the numerous opportunities You bless me with throughout the day to serve others in love and so serve You. I praise You for the amazing privilege in the name of my wonderful king Jesus Christ. Amen.                                                                            

May the sunshine of Jesus sweet love bless you today and every day
