He is Always There.

 Your way [of escape for Your people] was through the sea, And Your paths through the great waters, And Your footprints were not traceable. Psalm 77:19 Holy Bible Amplified Version

There have been many times during my trials and tribulation, sorrows and snares in life that I cried out unto Jehovah to come and rescue me but believed He had deserted me. In reflection it was revealed that He is always there.

Do you think it is just a coincidence that that man or woman came into your life at just the right moment when you needed help but there was none forth coming?

When it seems as of you are walking through the desert with no job prospect do you think it is coincidence that that employment offer came along?

For me many times it was tiny ads in the newspaper that jumped out at me and would not let go until I took action on them. It always resulted in amazing accomplishments in my life. It helped me find employment, it helped me find good Christian councilors, it guided me to schools that Jehovah wanted me to attend to learn a skill that would be used in service unto Him later on. This is just but one example of Him being there without me even knowing it at the time.

There is no such thing as coincidence in the Christian walk. Joseph son of Jehovah

So, no matter what ordeal you are experiencing now and it seems as if Jehovah has deserted you take comfort child of Jehovah He is always there.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Immanuel (God is with us) for the blessing of always being with me through the numerous trials and tribulations, sorrows and snare, victories and love You graciously bless me with each and every day. I thank you in the name of He who walked amongst us Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

We Can do Nothing Without Prayer.

a-praying-man

 “He will pray to God, and He shall be favorable to him, So that he looks at His face with joy; For God restores to man His righteousness [that is, his right standing with God—with its joys]. Job 33:26 Holy Bible, Amplified Version

Some come quick, some come slow but never give up.

Some, it is sad to say, will never come true because of the resistance from those concerned.

I am, of course, referring to intersessionary prayer.

It has taken me thirty years of daily intersessionary prayer for my family.

Most resist the Holy Spirits prodding but one has returned to going to church twice a week, reading their Bible, praying and a complete change of attitude and behavior. Please do not insult Jehovah and write it off as a coincidence. You have no idea how vehemently they opposed anything to do with Christianity after some bad experiences with some stone throwers at various churches they attended.

We can do nothing without prayer. All things can be done by importunate prayer. It surmounts or removes all obstacles, overcomes every resisting force and gains its ends in the face of invincible hindrances. –E. M. Bounds

The same can be said when we fall (and because we are all sinful folks we all fall no matter how strong our faith is) and sincerely repent. Jehovah gladly restores our relationship with Him and our hearts dance with ecstatic joy.

A non-praying Christian is an oxymoron. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Emunah (God is faithful) for blessing me with hearing my prayers and in You kind graciousness always answering them in You magnificent way, in You wise timing. I thank you in the name of the best answered prayer of all our loving Savior that brings us unto You through His sacrifice Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

You can Endure It.

No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it. 1 Corinthians 10:13 Holy Bible, New King James Version

We all have addictions, that is why we need the power of Christ within us to be victorious over them. Joseph- Anthony: Green

We are all addicted to something and many have more that one so please do not behave as if you are the only one suffering from yours. The Bible confirms it with- No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. Those of us who are Christians have the greatest power to conquer them in the power of the Holy Spirit. Now He may heal you instantly like He did my alcoholism or He may guide you to resources to help you conquer it like He did my smoking addiction but He will always be faithful to guide you to the road to recovery.

Do you believe that God is near? He wants you to. He wants you to know that He is in the midst of your world. Wherever you are as you read these words, He is present.–Max Lucado

The temptation will never leave you for good. Sometimes it will be subtle and sometimes it will be strong to return to your addiction but the Holy Spirit will always bless you with knowledge and strength to defeat the devils snare.

“My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.” 2 Corinthians 12:9 Holy Bible, New King James Version

Prayer: For the addicted:Oh please merciful Father in Heaven bless me with the Holy Spirits presence in my life to conquer this addiction. I know that it is too strong for me but that nothing is too strong for you. Please guide me to the resources needed to help me with this problem and the strength to be obedient unto your leading.

For the recovered addict: Thank you oh my amazing Father for smashing the chains of my addiction. Please help me to continue to walk in this freedom and bless me with Your powerful strength and wisdom to defeat the wicked one when he comes a knocking. I humbly request this and thank you in the name of He who has forever conquered all demons of addiction Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Cleanest but not Clean.

If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 1 John 1:9 New King James Version

When we become Christians all of our past sins are washed away when we confess and repent of our sins.  We are considered clean before our Holy Father by the blood of Christ our sacrificial lamb. They no longer have a hold on us. Those chains that held us are smashed and we are eternally free of them.

If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. 1 John 1:8 New King James Version

Now that is not to say we are perfect and blameless.

SINFUL DESIRE

How many times can you go through a day without sinning?

Try as we may we are still in a fleshly body and therefore still have weaknesses in us no matter how hard we try to be sinless.

Just try to keep all of the Ten Commandments in a day and see if you can. Yes the Ten Commandments are just as important today as they were in the Old Testament times.

I tried and it is impossible.

That is why we need to confess our sins with a truly remorseful heart. Then we are cleansed by the precious blood of Christ.

But to receive this you must truly desire to conquer your short comings and work with the Holy Spirit to conquer them.

So it is no use to ask Jehovah to deliver you from viewing pornography while searching porno sites on line.

To willfully sin is a double sin. One, you make the choice to sin and second, you follow through on your desires. Try as you may there is no forgiveness of this sin. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Now when and if you come to your senses are realize the wrong you have done and with tears confess your short comings unto Jehovah then you will be cleansed of your sins again.

Prayer: Jehovah-Go’el (The Lord is my Redeemer) for the supreme sacrifice Your cherished Son made to cleanse me of all my filthy sins and make me pure in Your loving eyes.

Thank you Jehovah-Mephalti  (The Lord my Deliverer) for delivering me from a life that was Hell bound through Your Beloved Sons blood. Thank you for providing a means to escape these chains and the strength to eternally conquer them. Thank you that when I sincerely fess up You forgive me of my sinful weaknesses. I thank You in the name of He whose precious blood made this all possible Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Look Back, Now, Forward.

And I said, “This is my anguish; But I will remember the years of the right hand of the Most High.” I will remember the works of the Lord; Surely I will remember Your wonders of old. Psalm 77:11-12 New King James Version

We all go though tough times.

When they occur take time to meditate upon how Jehovahs gentle, yet strong hand has led you through the storms of your past. Take comfort in this and thank Him for it.  Write them all down. This alone brings great peace to me. If you are a new born in Christ find a mentor that has walked the Godly life for a while and listen to their stories of Jehovahs great deliverance in their lives. Again, write them down.

Who is so great a God as our God? Psalm 77:13 New King James Version

Now contemplate His greatness and how much He loves you. Look at the stars, listen to the roar of the ocean, look at the mountains. In His might he made them all.  Look up photo’s on the internet and cut and paste them on a page with your list of how He has helped you in the past. Do you still believe He is not big enough to help you with your problems. Now notice I said that He will “help” you. Do not expect Him to do all the work. There may be times when that it required but most times it will also mean a concerted effort on your behalf as well even if it is just having faith in Him. Do you still not believe He is there to help you and will help you?

REST IN THE LORD

You are the God who does wonders; You have declared Your strength among the peoples. Psalm 77:14 New King James Version

Now look the times He has helped you and the photo’s and look forward. Look forward to His help coming your way in His timing in His way and have confidence in Him.

Talk with Him about your difficulties and pray for Him to bless you with the peace, comfort and strength that only He can and will provide.

Faith expects from God what is beyond all expectation. Andrew Murray

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-‘Ori (the Lord is my Light) for blessing me with a bright light to shine upon the path You have chosen for me to travel. Please shine that light occasionally behind me so I can see the way You have guided me in the past and to shine far in front of me so I can see You amazing plans in my life. I humbly request this in the name of the light of the world Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Our Journey Is As Important As.

PERSECUTION

 

To this you were called, because Christ suffered for you, leaving you an example that you should follow in his steps. 1 Peter 2:21 New International Version                                                                                     

Jesus was a very humble, meek, wise and gracious obedient son to His Heavenly Father when He walked amongst us.                                                        

Because He was a non conformist (which in todays terms means He was not politically correct) He suffered rejection, scorn, ridicule and even death.                                                                                                           

As Jesus is our big brother that gave us the example to live by we are to follow in His foot steps and expect to suffer just as He did .                                                                                                

As Jesus suffered so too will we.                                                                     

The closer we get to Christ the more we are going to suffer. The more we suffer the closer we get to Christ. Joseph- Anthony: Green                                                              

You can be sure that satan is not going to allow you a cake walk in your service to Christ. He will put up obstacles, suffering and hardships to discourage you so that you will quit.                                                                

The more you suffer the more your pray to Jehovah for strength.              

He will oblige you which in turn will reward you with a deeper love and appreciation for Him.                                                                                   

This will make you more determined to continue on in the path Christ has chosen for you.

                                                                                                                         

A non suffering Christian is an contradiction of words (opposite to each other). Joseph- Anthony: Green                                                                                                                

To God, our journey is as important as our destinations Beth Moore                                                                                                                                                

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Emunah (God is faithful) for faithfully encouraging, strengthening and providing for me during my many times of trail and tribulation in my Holy service unto You. I exalt You in the name of He who You strengthened all the way to Calvary Jesus Christ. Amen                                                                                                           

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

Will be With You.

COMPLETE DEDITACATION

Seek good and not evil, That you may live; So the Lord God of hosts will be with you. Amos 5:14 New King James Version                                                                                                          

I have noticed that those who devise wicked schemes of ripping others off, getting revenge or of ways to irritate others to please their perverted pleasure are spiritually, morally and mentally dead. There is neither love nor joy in their lives. They are the most miserable and pitiful creatures I have ever met.

On the other hand those Christians who love doing good have a live filled with love, joy and peace.

 

That can only be a blessing from Jehovah Shammah (God amongst us).

I love being around such beautiful souls as their peace, love and joy comes into my heart just being with them.                                                               

The more we become like Christ the more we will have these attributes instilled in us without us even being aware of them. The more we become alive in Christ.                                                                                        

If you want Jehovah to be with you, walk in His ways. The end result will live a life filled with peace, love and joy. Joseph- Anthony: Green                                                                                                       

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Ladayna (God our maker) for Your incredible skill and patience in molding me into the beautiful child of Your that bring joy to Your loving heart. I humbly thank you in the name of He who brings You the most joy, Jesus Christ. Amen.                                                                                                                  

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