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

Gratitude is Not Only

Know and fully recognize with gratitude that the Lord Himself is God; It is He who has made us, not we ourselves [and we are His]. Psalm 100:3Holy Bible, Amplified Version

Gratitude is described as acknowledgement of having received something good from another.

Yes we are to know that Jehovah made us and not being insulting idiots and believe that we are descended from monkeys. We are to recognize which means we are to have a clear understanding that we are a Divine creation.

To me that fills me with gratitude and meaning.

After all, how many folks go around and wonder why they are here?

I know why I am here. I was created to be blessed with a Divine loving relationship with our Heavenly Father. I am His and He is mine.

In gratitude I am obedient unto His direction in my life. This gives me Divine purpose.

Again, how many folks wonder what their purpose in life is.

I know mine.

It is to serve an amazing King.

For it is by grace [God’s remarkable compassion and favor drawing you to Christ] that you have been saved [actually delivered from judgment and given eternal life] through faith. And this [salvation] is not of yourselves [not through your own effort], but it is the [undeserved, gracious] gift of God; not as a result of [your] works [nor your attempts to keep the Law], so that no one will [be able to] boast or take credit in any way [for his salvation]. For we are His workmanship [His own master work, a work of art], created in Christ Jesus [reborn from above—spiritually transformed, renewed, ready to be used] for good works, which God prepared [for us] beforehand [taking paths which He set], so that we would walk in them [living the good life which He prearranged and made ready for us]. Ephesians 2:8-10 Holy Bible, Amplified Version

This leads me to a virtuous life.

Virtue means a conduct that conforms to an accepted standard of right and wrong.

Whose standard of what is right or wrong will you trust, Jehovahs or the worlds? Look around at the world and see if you want to live that type of life, I certainly do not.

Gratitude is not only the greatest of virtues, but the parent of all the others.” — Cicero

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Bara (The Lord Creator) for creating in my life a heart dedicated to nurturing a loving obedient live dedicated to You. I love You and praise You in the name of my Beloved brother in Your Heavenly family Jesus Christ. Amen

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

The Source of My Confidence.

                                                  

 For You are my hope; O Lord God, You are my trust and the source of my confidence from my youth. Psalm 71:5 Holy Bible, Amplified Version

Society is a prison of keeping up phony appearances. To fit in with the “in crowd” you have to act in a way that conforms to what they think is right or wrong. They decide what to wear, what music to watch, what movies to watch and what food to eat.

I do not care what others think of me, I care what Christ knows of me and is making of me. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Who is “they’ you ask?

It is big business disguised as someone wise. I remember a time when these two guys would rate movies and many folks would decide which movies to watch based on their assessment. The strange thing is though, the movies they thought were super great must see movies were boring and duds to me. The movies they panned were the great movies to me. Strange how they were paid by the big movie companies.

I see movie stars and so called musicians commenting on world events like they are so wise yet they are idiots who know nothing. Many folks are just as big of idiots because they take their word for it rather than do research on it. Those of us who do do the research and call them out are called racists, bigots, hemophiliacs, to name just a few.

There are so many that wait in freezing weather and spend exorbitant amounts of money to get the latest mobile phone from a certain company just to feed their ego.

Those of us who are wise have confidence in who we are in Christ. When The Holy Spirit directs our steps it is because the Trinity loves us and desires only what is best for us not to empty our wallets or bend to worshiping them as idols. We have confidence in our Teacher and Guidance Councilor. We have confidence in who we are because we know Jehovah made us this way (that is not to say we are perfect or that we do not need the burning off of the dross- bad habits). We have confidence in what He is molding us into.

“The greatest prison people live in is the fear of what other people think.” David Icke Prayer: Thank you my Beloved Jehovah Kal El (voice of God) for speaking to me in a gentle assurance that it does not matter what others think of me but what is important is what Your know of me and about me and what I am capable of becoming when I dedicate my life unto You. I exalt Thee in the name who He who never listened to anyone but You in whim He was Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Blessed is Any Weight

                                                  

Cast your burden on the Lord [release it] and He will sustain and uphold you;
He will never allow the righteous to be shaken (slip, fall, fail). Psalm 55:22
Holy Bible, Amplified Version

“Blessed is any weight, however overwhelming, which God has been so good as to fasten with His own hand upon our shoulders.” — F. W.Faber

Now why in the world wold any weight be considered a blessing?

How many folks forget all about Jehovah during the good times but go a running to Him during the bad ones?

I believe the weight that endures over a sustained amount of time is the best.

The reason?

Those who are shallow in their relationship with Christ will quickly fall away when they do not receive instant relief. They will go to worldly councilors which is little if any use to them. They will cry out to their government to save them and the government shall be unable to assist them.

Some trust in chariots and some in horses, But we will remember and trust in the name of the Lord our God. They have bowed down and fallen, But we have risen and stood upright. Psalm 20: 7-8 Holy Bible, Amplified Version

Those whose hearts are open to Jehovah will experience the blessing of His hand in their experience and their faith (which means trust) will grow. So too, will their respect, love and admiration towards our loving Father in Heaven.

It is in our hard times that we grow the most and come the closest unto Jehovah. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ‘Uzam (The Lord is our Strength in Trouble) for blessing me with the strength to continue on through the trial and tribulations, sorrows and snares that come my way. Thank you that You walk through them with me. I praise You in the name of the greatest source of strength of all Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Like a Rose Blooming In.

                                                   

The Lord is my rock, my fortress, and the One who rescues me; My God, my rock and strength in whom I trust and take refuge; My shield, and the horn of my salvation, my high tower—my stronghold. Psalm 18:2 Holy Bible, Amplified Version

One time while camping in the desert the winds picked up so bad I had to cup my hands over my face or else I would have been smothered to death.

That is what it is like sometimes when the world comes howling at us with TV, movies, music and society all screaming that sin is good and righteousness is foolishness.

That is when we need the Holy Spirit to come and wrap Himself around us and assure us we are walking the right walk.

In the morning there was huge red butes that when the sun rose they looked like giant fingers slowly moving to clamp onto my and squeeze me to death (or so it seemed).

So too can it seem as if there are pressures from the world to conform to their wickedness or they will destroy us in rage.

That is when we need the Holy Spirit to come plants the sweetness of Christs love for us with in our hearts and bloom like the most beautiful flower with in us.

One time while hiking along a trail by the ocean I decided to climb into a cave in a huge rock. Little did I realize that the high tide came all half way up that rock. That night a storm broke out and the waves reached the lip of the cave but never entered in.

So too is Christ there for us to take shelter in during the storms in our lives.

You will never find Jesus so precious as when the world is one vast howling wilderness. Then he is like a rose blooming in the midst of the desolation, a rock rising above the storm.” — Robert Murray M’Cheyne

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Sel’i (The Lord is my Rock) for blessing me with Your firm foundation and sanctuary during the raging storms in my life. Thank you that through this my faith and gratitude for You has blossomed into a beautiful creation of which You are well pleased. I praise You in the name of the most beautiful gardener of all Jesus Christ. Amen.

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