On an Admitted

HIS INSTRUCTION

You will show me the way of life, granting me the joy of your presence and the pleasures of living with you forever. Psalm 16:11 New Living Translation

A presumed fullness is when we brag that we are full and have no need of Jehovah. It is arrogant and is bragging. Beware. What is freely given unto you can and will be freely taken. Then you will end up with nothing. I have seen it oh so many times.

Then, there is the Christian perspective.

We empty our wants and desires for Jehovahs wants and desires. In the process we are blessed with love, purpose and spiritual treasures beyond compare. We may not be wealthy in the worlds eyes but boy are we ever rich in Jehovahs eyes.

“God is more disposed to move on an admitted emptiness than a presumed fullness.” — Tommy Tenn

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah RAB (The Lord my Nourisher) for blessing me with the most nutritious feast that is ever freely available to all seeking a fulfilling spiritual, mental and physical life. I praise You in the name of He who fills us daily with His Divine love Jesus Christ. Amen

May you be blessed with the gift of love, the gift of peace, the gift of joy. May you be blessed with numerous opportunities to share these gifts with others today.

Then, My Spirit Soars

GOD IS IN THE FURNACE WITH US

 I pray to you, O Lord, my rock.  Do not turn a deaf ear to me. For if you are silent, I might as well give up and die. Psalm 28:1 New Living Translation

There has been so many times in my life I felt like giving up and dying. It seemed as if everything I touched was destroyed. It seemed as if I gave everything and there was nothing left. It seemed as if I was the only soul in this world. In those times I went to the Lord and begged for death.

He patiently and lovingly guided me to verse after verse in the Bible affirming His love and care for me. Other times He came personally to me and filled my spirit with His love and reassurance.

One thing I noticed in reflection though, was that it was when I was at the end of my rope that He began an amazing transformation in me. He had to wait until I was ready and willing to surrender my will to His.

The other is that it was life changing in a manner in which shall never be forgotten but joyfully remembered.

Many times when I have felt like giving up I spend time with my Beloved . Then, my spirit soars like an eagle in the sky and my hope is renewed. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jesesus Yasha (The Lord my Savior ) for saving me from disaster after disaster. Thank you for the mysterious and numerous ways in which You brought salvation to me. I exalt You in the name of He whose blood saved me from damnation Jesus Christ. Amen.

Christ blesses us with love, peace and joy. May you be blessed with many opportunities to share these with others today.

We Should Rejoice That

God loves each of

How  also are Your thoughts to me, O God! Psalm 139:17 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Imagine that, the God of the universe has constant thoughts of how precious we are to Him.

He is not like some fairy tale santa claus who will only bring us gifts if we are nice (which is like bribery) once a year. Gifts we will soon grow bored with a forget them.

Jehovahs thoughts are how much He loves us. Because He loves us so tremendously He only wants what is best for us. It is therefore in our best interests to be obedient to His guidance. We should rejoice that we have such an amazing loving God.  

Rejoice in the Lord always [delight, take pleasure in Him] Philippians 4:4 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireh ( God provides ) for always providing just the right amount for me. Not too much so I become a lazy, arrogant glutton. Not too little that I undertake disastrous endeavours. The added benefit of this is that by depending upon You I see Your loving gracious hand in my life that would not be possible any other way. This fills me with awe, love, respect and admiration for You. I praise You in the name of He whose blood made this Heavenly relationship possible Jesus Christ. Amen

Christ blesses us with love, peace and joy. May you be blessed with many opportunities to share these with others today.

Security of the One Who Trusts in the Lord.

DELIVERANCE COMES FROM THE LORD

I have changed the words to first person so it sounds as if Jehovah is talking with me. See how it sounds when it is read like He is talking with you personally.

 I dwell in the shelter of the Most High Will and remain secure and rest in the shadow of the Almighty [whose power no enemy can withstand].
I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress, My God, in whom I trust [with great confidence, and on whom I rely]!”
For He will save me from the trap of the fowler, And from the deadly pestilence.
He will cover me and completely protect me with His pinions, And under His wings me will find refuge; His faithfulness is a shield and a wall.

 I will not be afraid of the terror of night, Nor of the arrow that flies by day,
Nor of the pestilence that stalks in darkness, Nor of the destruction (sudden death) that lays waste at noon.

A thousand may fall at my side And ten thousand at my right hand, But danger will not come near me. Because I trust and obey Jehovah many diseases which are caused by promiscuous life style will not affect me. Because I listen to Jehovah I will not fall for scammers whose only end is your destruction.

I will only [be a spectator as I] look on with my eyes And witness the [divine] repayment of the wicked [as I watch safely from the shelter of the Most High].

Because I have made the Lord, [who is] my refuge, is a place of safety and security, Even the Most High, my dwelling place,

No evil will befall me, Nor will any plague come near my tent. For He will command His angels in regard to me,  To protect and defend and guard me in all my ways [of obedience and service. They will lift me up in their hands,
So that I do not [even] strike my foot against a stone.

Does this sound familiar? Did satan not tempt Jesus with this quote during His temptation in the wilderness?

I will tread upon the lion and cobra; The young lion and the serpent I will trample underfoot. The lion devours(tries to take your love, joy and peace from you as well as material things like money and the cobra spits poison which is lies and gossip.

“Because he set his love on Me, therefore I will save him; I will set him [securely] on high, because he knows My name [he confidently trusts and relies on Me, knowing I will never abandon him, no, never].

“I call upon Jehovah, and He will answer me; He will be with my in trouble; He will rescue me and honor me.
“With a long life Jehovah will satisfy me And Jehovah will let me see My salvation.” 

  Psalm 91 Holy Bible Amplified Version

How do you feel now? 

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-‘Immeku (The Lord Is With You) that You are always with me. Even when it seems like everything around me is being ripped apart I have faith in Your Divine providence that even better is awaiting me when You rebuild me. I thank you in the name of He whose resurrection rebuilt His disciples even when their world was turned upside down when they saw their Savior on the cross Jesus Christ. Amen

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

I Will Most Certainly Not

be encouraged

 The Lord also will be a refuge and a stronghold for the oppressed, A refuge in times of trouble Psalm 9:9 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

There are times in everyones lives when they are attacked on all sides. It literally feels as if their life is going to Hell in a hand cart.

Those in the world go to councillors that give them human advice which is inferior to the Supreme Adviser the wise man or woman runs to.

His name is The Holy Spirit.

He is sent by the Father through Christ when we call upon Jehovah for advice, need encouragement or strength or healing. When we go to Him it is like a safe warm secure house while the storm is raging outside. Even though the winds howl and scream their biting coldness cannot penetrate the solid bricks of the house. Even though the rain unmercifully pounds the bricks, those inside are safe from their fury.                                                                         

When a Christian comes a knocking at Christs house during their storm, Jesus loves us and cares for us and about us. He will never refuse to open the door to His house and bid you to come in.

The one who comes to Me I will most certainly not cast out [I will never, never reject anyone who follows Me].John 6:37 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Abba (God our Father) for blessing me with the door always being open for this child of Yours to enter. It is there where we find comfort, security, peace, love, joy and wisdom. Oh how I love to come into Your marvellous house my Beloved. I look forward to the time when I shall never leave it. I praise You in the name of He who shall greet me at the door of Your house, my big brother, Jesus Christ. Amen

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

This is the Formula With

CHIEF DUTY

 

This is the formula with Jehovahs call upon our daily life.

I have changed the words to first person so it sounds as if Jehovah is talking with me. See how it sounds when it is read like He is talking with you personally.

His commands to me are: Wait for the Lord(Psalm 27:14).
Be still before Lord and wait patiently for Him(Psalm 37:7).
Maintain love and justice, and wait for my God always(Hosea 12:6).

These are the benefits of waiting for the Lord: Blessed are all who wait for Him! He rises to show me compassion” (Isaiah 30:18).
They that wait on the Lord shall renew their strength(Isaiah 40:31).
Surely, this is my God; I trust (waited) in him, and he saved me(Isaiah 25:9).

My declaration to Him: Yes, Lord, walking in the way of your laws, I wait for you; your name and renown are the desires of my heart(Isaiah 26:8).
I wait for the Lord, my soul waits, and in his word I put my hope. My soul waits for the Lord more than watchmen for the morning(Psalm 130:5, 6).

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Emunah (God is faithful) that when I am faithful unto You, You are ten fold more faithful towards me in return. This is the greatest investment of all. I praise You in the name of Your most obedient son 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

Jehovahs Emotional Guidebook.

GODS GUIDEBOOK

 This is Jehovahs emotional guidebook.

I have changed the words to first person so it sounds as if Jehovah is talking with me. See how it sounds when it is read like He is talking with you personally.

When I am lonely, I meditate upon Hebrews 13:5 “I will never leave you nor forsake you.”

When fear envelopes me, I meditate upon Isaiah 41:10 “So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God.”

Whenever I feel weak, I meditate upon Philippians 4:13 “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”

Every time I am torn between following the ways of the world or the ways of the Lord, I meditate upon Proverbs 3:5-6 “I trust in the Lord with all my heart and lean not on my own understanding; in all my ways acknowledge him, and he will make my paths straight.”

Whenever I feel lost, I meditate upon Matthew 7:7 “When I ask it will be given to me; when I seek and I will find; when I knock and the door will be opened to me. For, everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened.”

Any time when I am confused in knowing God’s will for my life, I meditate upon Psalm 86:11 “Teach me your way, O Lord, and I will walk in your truth; give me an undivided heart.”

When I the flesh tempts me, I meditate upon 1 Peter 5:8 “Be self controlled and alert. My enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. Resist him, standing firm in the faith, because I know that your brothers throughout the world are undergoing the same kind of sufferings.”

Following these guidelines every day helps me to defeat the devil and his minions and brings a lot of peace to my day.  I listen to them on an mp4 every morning and evening to ingrain them in my mind.

Prayer: I thank you Jehovah KalEl (voice of God) for the numerous ways in which You speak to me. It always amazes me that You always know the proper words to say in the proper manner and in the proper time. I praise You in the name of He who spoke the most amazing words ever spoken Jesus Christ. Amen

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