He Who Has a Head of Wax

Establish my footsteps in [the way of] Your word; Do not let any human weakness have power over me [causing me to be separated from You]. Psalm 119:133 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

I believe Jehovah instills in us all certain weaknesses in our spirit and in our dispositions. Try as we may we cannot conquer them even though we know they are destructive.

The reason for this is so that we learn to depend upon Him for guidance and strength. It is when we realize we are weak that we go humbly to Jehovah and request both His spiritual and mental strength to defeat these overpowering destructive traits. He answers in numerous manners.

Sometimes He will guide you to Godly councilors (which may take years before there is victory. This teaches you patience, faith and perseverance).

Sometimes our weaknesses are too strong for us to control so He teaches us to be dependent upon Him (boy has He ever come through on that one for me).  Sometimes He will exorcist in on His own (to exhibit His strength so you learn to have faith in Him and depend upon Him).

Sometimes He will work in harmony with you to destroy it (this is to teach you not to be arrogant and think you do not need His help).

Chances are there are times of temptation. Even though they come from satan they are used by Jehovah to test you to see if you are strong enough (He knows whether you are or not, He just wants you to know) or if you are wise enough and have faith enough to call upon Him for help believing He will answer you.

Those who have a head of wax must not walk out in the sun (know your weaknesses) Anonymous

Prayer: Thank you El Deah (God of knowledge) for blessing with the knowledge of my strengths and weaknesses. Thank you for directing me to Godly councilors whom have helped me immeasurably to learn how to handle them to give glory to You.

Thank you that when I fail in tests You are not angry with me but rather are just teaching me I have a ways to go.

Thank you that in Your grace You help me when in need of controlling the weaknesses so as to not shame Your name.

I give all glory to You my Love in the name of He whose strength conquers all weaknesses 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

Not Avoid It.

Turn to me, and be gracious to me; Grant Your strength [Your might and the power to resist temptation] to Your servant. Psalm 86:16 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Notice it says resist temptation and not avoid it. The writer knows full well it is impossible to flee from all temptation so he requests Divine strength to endure the attack of the wicked one.

The evil one who knows his prey and how to tempt him or her.

Sometimes Jehovah will not intervene on our behalf because He wants us to understand we are strong enough to fight some of our own battles.

On the flip side of the coin, He also knows the battle is too great for us and is waiting for us to call upon Him. This helps us to not be arrogant and foolishly believe we are strong enough to withstand temptation on our own.

Steadfast in believing doth not exclude temptations from without. When we see a tree firmly rooted, we do not say the wind doth not blow upon it. John Owen

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Shammah ( The Lord is Present) for always being present through my plentiful temptations that come my way every day. May I make You proud when I vanquish them on my own when strong enough and be wise enough to call upon You when they are to overpowering for me to resist. I humbly request this in the name of He who overpowered satan in the wilderness 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

People Who Don’t Commit

                                                                              

Commit your way to the Lord; Trust in Him also and He will do it. Psalm 37:5 Holy Bible Amplified Version

There are too many marshmallow Christians and not enough refined Christians.

How much of your life do you commit unto Christ?

Before you get out of bed in the morning do you pray and commit yourself to do Jehovah’s will during the day?

Do you commit to love Him by loving others (covertly so as to bring glory to Jehovah and not to you)?

Do you commit to asking and obeying Jehovahs choice for a new vehicle?

Do you commit to asking and obeying where Jehovah desires you to give your one tenth to?

Do you commit to asking and obeying His advice in any and all disputes (believe me, it prevents a lot of disasters) ?

Personally speaking I do not make a move without taking it to my Heavenly Father first for His Divine wise advice. Then, no matter how difficult I follow His instructions. Of course, there are times when I behave independently and boy do I pay for it in disasters of my own making.

People who don’t commit their whole heart to God, will not love Him at all, since their wickedness will overtake their personal thoughts and actions, which contradicts God’s lifestyle, Works, Ethics, and Word.” ~ Jon Barnes

Prayer: It is the greatest honour Jesus Helech ‘Olam (The Lord our King Forever) to be Your obedient humble servant and I thank you for this glory in Your majestic name. Amen.

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

Let Them Not Rule.

 Also keep back Your servant from presumptuous (deliberate, willful) sins;
Let them not rule
and have control over me. Psalm 19:13 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

There are certain inherited sins in us all as well are a fallen race.

The only way to conquer them is through the submission unto the all power of the Holy Spirit.

I know, that is the only way I beat alcoholism.

Have you ever seen a row between two folks and just before it comes to blows a friend steps between one of them and prevents him from getting into a fight? He does so because he knows the other man or woman will beat the snot out of his or her friend. The ringer is laughing at the sucker and egging them on to fight just for the perverted pleasure of fighting.

That is what the man in the above verse is saying.

Satan knows our weakness and will work on it and present it to us in an appealing manner. The temptation is too strong for us. That is when we need to call in the supreme Superman to save the day. His name is The Holy Spirit.

There have been numerous times the temptation was so great I thought my head was going to explode. I called out in desperation :” Come now Holy Spirit, please hurry or all is lost.” It may sound incredible but it is true, the temptation was immediately taken from me.

Satan drools when he sees foolish Christians think they are strong enough to resist him. They are the easiest prey.

That enemy of yours, the devil, prowls around like a roaring lion [fiercely hungry], seeking someone to devour. 1 Peter 5:8 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Without the Holy Spirits help we all fall away from Jehovah and towards satan. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Ganan (The Lord is Our Defense) for being my defense against a wily foe who can easily destroy me without You but cannot touch me with You. I give thanks in the name of He who defeated satan on the cross and at the resurrection Jesus Christ. Amen

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

When Folks Concentrate On

                                        

 Delight yourself in the Lord, And He will give you the desires and petitions of your heart. Psalm 37:4 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

We see it constantly (especially in the western countries) where folks foolishly go so deep into debt they will never get out of it. The end result is a lot of discontentment in their lives because they are slaves unto consumerism (which is a cruel master). There is no peace in their lives because they are constantly worried about paying off their debt. There is no love in their hearts because they are angry they are so far in debt. There certainly is no joy in their live because they lament over their pitiful state. The end result of this is a lot of physical sickness like ulcers and mental health. As well the heavy load of constant stress wears out their immune system so they are easy prey for any and all diseases that come their way.

When we are delighted in our loving relationship with Jehovah we do not need material stimulation to appease us. Our desires are to expand our loving relationship with Him and with others. This results in a life filled with contentment, love, joy and peace. As well, those who delight in our Lord have fewer sickness than those not in our Heavenly family because of Jehovahs peace, love and joy that reigns in our hearts.

When folks concentrate on Heavenly desires rather than earthly desires there is a lot more contentment, peace, love and joy in their lives. Joseph son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireh ( God provides ) for bountiful blessings of Your Heavenly treasure in my life and in my heart. They are the truest treasure of all. I praise You in the name of the greatest blessed treasure of all Jesus Christ. Amen

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

He Calls to Account

                                           

He calls to account him who tramples me down. Psalm 57:3 Holy Bible Amplified Version

I have met many who thoughtlessly trampled upon others. Many times it was for no other reason than to enjoy a perverted enjoyment of watching them suffer. They foolishly laugh and believe they are getting away with it.

Jehovah delivers His justice in His time, and, in His way.

I have seen it take decades for Jehovahs hand of justice to strike but when He did, I trembled in awe and terror at the retribution the perpetrators paid. Leave vengeance into Jehovahs way.

He knows the perpetrator far better than you so He know how to deliver much more fitting punishment that you can. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Ghmolah (The God of Recompense.The God of vengeance) for delivering true justice to the wicked ones that take delight in tormenting and abusing Your precious children. Through their punishment explain to them that this is their reward for their evil and bring them unto repentance. I humbly ask this 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

Remind Me How Much I Need

When the righteous cry [for help], the Lord hears And rescues them from all their distress and troubles. Psalm 34:17 Holy Bible, Amplified Version

It is in our greatest time of need that we grow the closest to Christ. The problem is to grow in our relationship with Him during the good times.

We see it not only in history but also in private lives.

Is it not curios that during the depression there was the greatest amount of church attendance but during the good times there is the least attendance in churches?

If you only call upon Jehovah when you need Him and neglect Him during the good times what makes you foolishly believe He will come to your aid at all?

“There’s nothing like a good crisis to increase my energy and remind me how much I need God.” Anne Christian Buchanan

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-‘Uzam (The Lord is our Strength in Trouble) for blessing me with always being there with me through all my troubles. Thank You my love for always being there. I cherish our times spent together both in the good times and the bad. Thank you that it is in the times of trouble that You teach me so much. I praise Thee in the name of He who calmed the troubled seas for His disciples 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
