Thank Him For It And

 Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take. Proverbs 3:5-6 Holy Bible, New Living Translation

Do you truly have confidence in our Heavenly Father?

Then when you go to Him with a problem when you are finished talking with Him about it, thank Him for it and drop it. I do not mean to never mention it again but rather do not whine about it consistently to Jehovah. That is annoying when someone does that to me, I can only imagine how annoying it is to Jehovah when untold numbers of His children do it to Him.

For me, I mention it every morning to Him more as a way for me to remember it than to remind Him of it. Many times I tend to forget the problem (unless it is persistent or is a crisis) and then one day something happens and it pops into my mind that that is Jehovah answering my prayers in unusual and unique ways. It always makes me laugh and thank Him for His wonderful humour as well as His loving Providence.

For the rest of my life I am going to trust that Jehovah is always at work in all things and give Him thanks long before my simplest prayers are answered. Nancy Parker Brummet

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Shalom (The Lord blesses with Peace) for blessing me with peace every time I place my confidence in You, no matter how dire the situation. You are truly the most awesome Father of them all. I extol You in the name of He who placed His life in Your Divine hands with complete confidence, as I deeply desire to, all the way to the cross, Jesus Christ. Amen

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

A Heavy Load is Lifted

 Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you.1 Peter 5:7 Holy Bible New Living Translation

Why carry a load you are not intended to carry?

Jehovah is our loving Father. He cares about us and is always there to talk with like the closest companion we could ever be blessed to have (because He is).

When I have worries Jehovah always answers in two manners.

One: He will guide be to Bible Verses (Not just one, sometimes He will guide me to verse after verse for over an hour. Each one affirming His care for me and the action that must be taken to alleviate the concern. Sometimes the action must be taken independently, sometimes it must be taken as team work with the Holy Spirit, sometimes Jehovah just says to be patient, everything is in His capable hands. Every time what He says comes to fruition).

Two:Sometimes it is verse after verse how He loves me and cares for me. He will never desert me nor leave me. This brings great comfort and reassurance.

When we cast our cares upon the strong shoulders of Christ a heavy load is lifted from our minds, spirits and bodies and replaced with peace of mind. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Mephalti (The Lord my Deliverer) for consistently delivering me from all of my worries, problems and heartaches with Your strong, loving, gentle hand. I love the numerous ways in which You accomplish this. It fills me with awe, wonder, respect, love and admiration. I praise You in the name of my most loving best friend in who I always confide in Jesus Christ. Amen.

May love be in your life, may hope be in your heart and may peace be in your every day walk with Christ.

If You Want to Know

look for me

Jesus said to him, “Have I been with you for so long a time, and you do not know Me yet, Philip, nor recognize clearly who I am? Anyone who has seen Me has seen the Father. John 14:9 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

If you truly want to know what Jehovah is like just read about Jesus in the New Testament in your Bible. The two are of the same disposition.

If you want to know who the best guidance Councillor is just look at Jesus. He has gone through every thing, and so much more, that we have. Therefore, He understands everything we go through and is best qualified to give the best advice (Jesus is too much of a gentleman to demand anything, He always suggests what is best for us, it is in our best interest to be obedient unto that advice.).

Who would you rather go to with a problem: someone with a certificate on the wall but has not walked one step through what you are experiencing.

Or: Someone who has walked a mile or more in your shoes so understands completely what you are going through and has unlimited resources to help you resolve the problem.

“If you want to know who God is, look at Jesus.  If you want to know what it means to be human, look at Jesus.  If you want to know what love is, look at Jesus.  If you want to know what grief is, look at Jesus.  And keep looking until you’re no longer a spectator but part of His grand story.” N. T. Wright

Prayer: Thank you GELAH RAZ (Revealer of Mysteries) for revealing the mystery of You to this humble child of Yours that is blind to the foolish ones that are walking towards Hell. Please bless me with the ability to reveal You with others as You have revealed towards me. I humbly request this in the name of He who opened the eyes of the blind 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.

You do so at Your Own Risk.

                                    

He who turns his ear away from listening to the law [of God and man], Even his prayer is repulsive [to God]. Proverbs 28:9 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Have you ever felt Jehovah was speaking to you about something in your life and then you ignore Him?

You do so at your own risk.

When Jehovah speaks with us about something that requires attention it is for our own good.

If you ignore His advice you with eventually suffer the consequences for it. Then when you go cry babying unto Him, He will ignore your prayers. They smell like a bad fart to Him. He is disgusted with you because you refuse to listen to Him.

Now when you finally smarten up and obey Him, He forgives you.

It is always difficult to obey Him especially when it is something deep seated in our minds.

Many times it will take good Christian counselling to even get to admit we have the problem.

Once we accept the problem then it is up to us to try to resolve it. We can get all the counselling in the world but if we do nothing to try to resolve it, the counselling is useless.

Sometimes the problem is too big for us to handle.

That is when we go unto the Holy Spirit and sincerely, respectfully ask for His help. Then and only then will the issue be resolved.

I have gone through both sides of it and can tell you it is very difficult but rewarding.

One of them for example was independence, which most of us suffer from. It took many years before that was finally destroyed and expelled from my mind and heart. Sometimes it took my own effort, sometimes it took the assistance from the Holy Spirit. I rejoice over that every day.

“When God turns away from us because of selfishness, it is not rejection. Rather, it is an invitation to follow Him to a place we would rather not go.” — Brennan Manning

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Emet (God of truth) for gracefully educating me about the ruinous dispositions with in my soul. Thank you for the assistance You overwhelmingly provide me with to conquer these weaknesses. I exalt Thee in the name of He who has overcome the world 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

He Must Ask For

                                    

But he must ask [for wisdom] in faith, without doubting [God’s willingness to help]. James 1:6 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

For any and all situations in life the first course of action a Christian take it taking it to the Lord, asking for His advice. We must ask in faith, which means trusting, that our request shall be answered. After all our Father in Heaven only desires what is best for His children.

Sometimes, in fact most times, the answer does not come instantly. This is a big problem for most folks today because they are used to instant everything. But in waiting for the Lords answer He is teaching us not only patience but to expand our faith in Him.

Many times the answer will come in pieces not all at once. This is because we need to take baby steps due to the problem being so big.

So for example we will say you are having a problem with someone. First you need to resolve problems in your own life and then will be prepared for the proper course of action to take with dealing with the other soul.

When we ask Jehovah for wisdom we must obey what He says whether we like it or not. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Rabbi (God our Teacher) for walking amongst us so You understand everything we go through because You have already experienced it. Because of this You bless me with the wisest advice because You are the wisest teacher of all who only wants what is best for me because You love me so very much. In Your all discerning name I exalt Thee. Amen

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

That Is Not the Way It Is Supposed to Be

LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOUR

Therefore if you bring your gift to the altar, and there remember that your brother has something against you Matthew 5:23 New King James Version                                                                                                                             

Do you notice that Jesus mentions that if your brother has a grievance with you, you are to make your peace with him?                                                                                 

He does not say that if you have a grievance against your brother.                                     

Too many Christians believe that they must forgive their brothers when they do bad things to them before their offering can be acceptable to God.                                                         

So let us say a brother has cheated you out of a lot of money, do you seriously believe that God wants you to forgive him his dept to you if he has the means to repay you before your offering will be acceptable to God?                                                

To me that is a very dangerous and misguided theology.                                              

Prayer: Please Jehovah grant me the wisdom to discern how to handle a problem between a  brother or sister who is indebted to me but refuses to pay his obligations even though they have the means to do so. I sincerely beseech this request in the name of He who taught Nichodemous to repay those to whom he was indebted to Jesus Christ. Amen                                           

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

More Than Asked For.

GRADITUDE AND CREDIT

These articles are dedicated to the wonderful and amazing way Jehovah Jireh (the Lord our provider) answers prayers. It is a simple journal that I would like to use as an example for others to list their sincere prayer requests and then how our Beloved answers them.                                                                                                                                       

It will amaze you and create a heart of gratitude and respect for our gracious Jehovah Heseh (Our God of love).

“Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. Matthew 7:7 New King James Version                                           

Yesterday I prayed the Lord would bless me with a good teacher and that my mind be open to what was being taught concerning a problem on my computer.

The teacher was very good. She explained things in a simple easy relaxed manner which made it easy to understand.

As well as solving the annoying problem she taught me some programs which help me a lot and got rid of some annoying ones.

She showed me a program to use to help an elderly lady living in a seniors home that does not speak our language. This site gives simple sentences the nurses can use to communicate with her.

 

She showed me how to get on the libraries WiFI, which I did not even know they had for free.

She showed me a site with a lot of freebies, which is deeply appreciated by a cheepo like me, to help with my writing.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireh (God our provider) for blessing me with a wise teacher who abundantly provided me with so much more useful information than I was expecting. I praise You in the name of He who abundantly provide the wine at the grooms wedding Jesus Christ. Amen.

 

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