There are Two Important Steps in this Verse

voice of god

Through love and faithfulness sin is atoned for; through the fear of the Lord evil is avoided. Proverbs 16: 6 Holy Bible New Living Translation

There are two important steps in this verse.

The first part is that through our love for Jehovah we feel shame for our sin so we repent of it. Jehovah for His part then forgives us of that sin.

“The truth is, living in agreement with God will bring His conviction when we are disobedient. Conviction may feel like a negative thing, but it’s just as much a part of God as His smile. He is committed to making our lives work in Him, and He will use the strength and power of His conviction to let us know when we are outside His will. It may feel bad, but conviction is God at work in us.” — David Edwards

The second part is when we are obedient unto the Holy Spirits guidance He directs us away from places and things that would tempt us to sin. It does not mean we will be protected from evil because it is all around us and sometimes strikes us personally.

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Rohi ( Jesus is our Divine Shepherd )- Psalm 23 for blessing me with Your gracious forgiveness when I mess up and honestly repent. Thank you for sending the Holy Spirit to guide me along the road to Heaven You have chosen for me to take and for helping me to stay upon said road. I praise You in Your wise 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

Don’t Waste Your Breath

do-not-allow-them-to-control-you

Don’t waste your breath on fools, for they will despise the wisest advice. Proverbs 23:9 Holy Bible, New Living Translation Version

Have you ever tried talking with fools?

They are stubborn, stupid and arrogant.

They are stubborn. You can take them through it bit by bit and they agree with you all along the way. Then you ask them if they agree with what you are saying at the end of the conversation and they laugh at you like you are a fool and they are so much smarter than you. When they refuse to listen and go their own way which ends in disaster it is everybody’s fault but their own.

They are stupid. They know from experience that what they are doing is going to end in disaster but stupidly believe the outcome this time will end differently, which it does not. It ends in disaster. When the inevitable disaster occurs again they blame everybody but themselves. They are arrogant. They believe they are right and everybody that disagrees with them is wrong. They will not allow the facts to get in the way.

So many times I see this in seniors and stand there and shake my head and wonder how they have managed to live this long. When you sit down and talk with them they will admit that most of their problems and disasters in their lives have been because they are stubborn. I hear some uneducated idiots tell me that they are that way because they are old and set in their ways. In reality they have been like that all their lives. I try to talk with them (fools) but if they refuse to listen I just walk away, not wanting to see the disastrous results.

Just ask any policeman or woman how many disasters they have encountered because of stupidity and stubbornness. Indeed there was a recent incident where a road was blocked of because of flooding. A woman refused to obey and went around the sign. Her car was swept into the river and she lost her son because of her arrogance and stupidity. 

The same goes through for any nurse in Emergency Ward.

I speak, you do not listen, why should I speak any more? Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Please Jehovah Rabbi (God my teacher) bless me to always listen and obey Your wise voice. I know that doing so will avoid a lot of trouble, agony and hardship. I ask this in the name of He who was always obedient unto Your voice Jesus Christ. Amen

The gift of love, the gift of joy, the gift of peace, these are the greatest gifts that can be given. They are given in abundance to all those in Christs family by our Heavenly loving  Father. May you be blessed with plentiful opportunities to share these with those around you today.

I Wanna Know so I can Do.

follow your ways

 Commit yourself to instruction; listen carefully to words of knowledge. Proverbs 23:12 Holy Bible, New Living Translation Version

 I wanna know so I can do as my Heavenly King desires. Because I love Jesus so much I have a deep desire to know what He wishes for me to do.

We need to daily commit to seeking out the best instruction for our lives.

And, of course, the best instruction manual is The Holy Bible.

There are other resources such as on line daily devotionals like Our Daily Bread. For those who prefer to listen rather than read a fantastic resource is https://www.sermonaudio.com/main.asp Both are great.

When we dedicate ourselves to asking for instructions for the coming day with commitment to obeying the instructions given, we will find that Jehovah guides us along on our day even though many times it does not feel as if He is there.

Then, there is the big picture in which Jehovah moulds our personality which takes decades. Being a little slow at catching on at times (we all are) it means there are occasions when the information must be digested a little at a time.

As well, there is a slow process for us to serve Jesus’ big purpose.

This may take years and involve many baby steps along the way.

I love to learn but sometimes it is difficult to put that knowledge into practice. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Rabbi (God our Teacher) for the distinction of being one of Your disciples. I love to sit and listen and learn from the Holy Spirit whom You have sent to instruct me in the proper manner in which to be a revered servant of Yours. I applaud You for this favour in Your holy name. Amen

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

If You do Not Teach Your Children

the rock of truth

 To Train up a child in the way he should go [teaching him to seek God’s wisdom and will for his abilities and talents], Even when he is old he will not depart from it. Proverbs 22:6 Holy Bible amplified Version

Teach them when they are young because when they are adults they will not listen to you.

Every morning read them Bible stories and talk with them about it (including respectfully listening. Too many parents talk but refuse to listen. Children hate that).

During supper ask them how their day went and seek verses to help them deal with difficulties. Read them Bible stories at bed time and talk about it with them.

Teach them to pray to their Father in Heaven in a loving manner (not like they would with Santa Claus but with someone they are blessed to enjoy a loving relationship with).

Lead by example. Let them see you pray sincerely. Let them see your failures and how you reconcile them with anyone you have offended and with Jehovah. Teach them by example of morals and how sometimes they will suffer because of them but will be blessed with peace of mind. Teach them by exhibiting a good loving Christian relationship with your husband or wife (this excludes homosexuals because their is not a Christian relationship when they are living a satanic lifestyle).

You are in a spiritual battle for your childrens eternity. Take it seriously because satan certainly does. So too does Jehovah.

“If you will not teach your children to follow Christ, the world will teach them not to.” Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Please Jehovah Rabbi (God our Teacher) bless me to imitate You in teaching all those who are not as mature as I in our Heavenly love affair with You.                                                            Please bless me to listen , understand and obey those who are teaching me as they are more mature than I. I sincerely ask this in the name of the greatest Teacher Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Do Not Even Associate With

  do not allow them to control you

Do not even associate with a man given to angry outbursts; Or go [along] with a hot-tempered man, Or you will learn his [undisciplined] ways And get yourself trapped  [in a situation from which it is hard to escape].Proverbs 22:24-25  Holy Bible, New Living Translation

These are explosive folks. You can be having a nice social conversation with them and suddenly they will explode in a rage. I have seen it numerous times and it was terrifying, until Jehovah blessed me with the peace, wisdom and grace to be firm with them and inform them that that childish behavior is not tolerated with me so either straighten up or get away from me. If they refuse to obey then I inform them they can discuss it with the police. Then they leave, all the while screaming like a banshee about how I am abusing them (it is not my fault, it is yours is their mantra). 

Do not try to reason with them because there is no reasoning with a fool. All that will happen is that you will get into a yelling contest with them and lose your temper, Then, they will manipulate you to lose your temper even more and they will be laughing at you on the inside.                                         

Never get into an argument with a fool. To do so, you have to go down to their level and they will beat you every time from experience. Anonymous 

I speak from a lot of experience.

In the future I refuse to even acknowledge them (even to say hello or good morning) because that opens the door and they are thieves. They will steal your peace and you will get into another yelling contest. Again, I speak from a lot of experience.

I depend upon the Holy Spirit to bless me with strength, wisdom and grace to handle these poor pitiful folks. Yes some of them are like this because of unresolved issues in their lives but most are like this because they just love to fight.    

The pitiful thing is though, that because they are cursed with this disposition, they have no friends, especially in their elder years.                                    

No weapon that is formed against you will succeed; And every tongue that rises against you in judgment you will condemn. This [peace, righteousness, security, and triumph over opposition] is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, And this is their vindication from Me,” says the Lord. Isaiah 54:17 Holy Bible, New Living Translation  

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Shalom (The Lord blesses with Peace) for blessing me with peace while dealing with a war monger who attempts to steal it from me. Thank you for blessing me with the wisdom in how to prevent them from stealing Your Divine gift from me. I praise You in the name of the Prince of Peace 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

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.

Moral Rot Within a Nation.

LOOKING TO HEAVEN

 When there is moral rot within a nation, its government topples easily. But wise and knowledgeable leaders bring stability. Proverbs 28:2 New Living Translation Bible

This should be a wake up call to every citizen of every nation in the world today.

I cannot find one nation on this planet that is governed by Jehovahs morality.

The only way to a peaceful, productive, harmonious society is to govern both the individual, corporate and government to live a life governed by Jehovahs standards. Every thing else only leads to chaos and destruction. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Instead they are governed by greed and political correctness. It seems as of everybody is fighting for their own agenda instead of building their society together. This is especially true of the liberals but the conservatives are not with out guilt.

“When you say ‘There’s too much evil in this world’, you assume there’s ‘good’. When you assume there’s good, you assume there’s such a thing as a ‘moral law’ on the basis of which to differentiate between good and evil. But if you assume a moral law, you must posit a ‘Moral-Law Giver’, but that’s Who you’re trying to disprove and not prove. Because if there’s no Moral-Law Giver, there’s no moral law. If there’s no moral law, there’s no good. If there’s no good, there’s no evil. What is your question?” Ravi Zacharias

 

Prayer: Please Jehovah Elohay Mishpat (the God of Justice!) always guide me to behave in a way which exemplifies Your moral law. May I never take one step from it for a step away from Your moral law is a step towards Hell. I implore You in the name of the Supreme Judge Jesus Christ. Amen.

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