Before God Has a Chance To

GTTING CLOSE WITH GOD

 

 “Oh, that My people would listen to Me.” Psalm 81:13 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Do you yap and run?

Most times, I am ashamed to admit, that I do.

You know, where you say your prayers, say:”Thanks for listening Jehovah”, and begin your day or go to sleep.

I have begun to get into the habit of laying quiet for about ten minutes after prayer to see if the Lord has anything to say in reply. Usually He does. He fills me with a sense of peace.

Why not give it a try today and make it a practice every day.

Now it makes one wonder if there is anything more valuable or worthy of your time than just spending time with He whose love reigns supreme in your heart.

“The trouble with nearly everybody who prays is that he says “Amen” and runs away before God has a chance to reply. Listening to God is far more important than giving Him your ideas.” — Frank Laubach

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Kal El (voice of God) for blessing me with the most delightful conversations even when some of them are difficult to hear I know they are all for my own good because of Your divine love for me. I praise You in the name of He who spoke the choices words of all 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

The Most Important Ministry is That Of

pray for each other

 “Hear my prayer, O Lord, and listen to my cry; Do not be silent at my tears” Psalm 39:12 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Some folks use the out that they are now made for service whether as a missionary, teacher or any capacity with in the church.

Nice try.

One of the most important ministry is that of prayer. It only needs to be heart felt and sincere. You do not need go to any seminary to learn it. You need no special equipment (except a quiet room, and sincere heart).

Go on web sites like: https://joyfmradio.net/make-a-request/submit-a-prayer-request, https://www.praise1065.com/prayer-requests/, http://prayer-center.upperroom.org/prayer-wall, http://nationalprayerbank.com/Pages/Pray-For-Others/ to name just a few.

A good line of thought though is to find someone who is going through the same situation (and we all have our problems). Write their name down on a piece of paper and what the problems is.

Then, include them in your morning prayers. Have no more than five (you do not want to spend the day on your knees). It would be an excellent form of ministry for brothers and sisters to participate in that are living in seniors homes.

Prayer is a hidden ministry that brings forth fruit through which the Father is glorified.”Oswald Chambers

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Abba (God our Father) for blessing me with an appropriate list of brothers and sisters to pray for to encourage them, comfort them and strengthen them in a minute way compared to You. I exalt You in the name of He who prayed for others even though He knew what was awaiting Him during his trial and execution 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

We Also Need to be Continuously Expanding

FOLLOWING CHRIST

  O Lord, truly I am Your servant. Psalm 116:16 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

There are some that meditate upon the meaning of life while contributing nothing to it. What a waste of life.

There are those who are so concerned about the here and now that they think nothing about eternity. What a meaningless life.

Both are wrong.

Yes we are to be working and planning for this life in harmony with Jehovahs will.

However, we also need to be continuously expanding and growing in our spiritual development at the guidance of the Holy Spirit. This will ultimately lead us from becoming earthly servants of our Beloved King, Jesus to being His spiritual Heavenly servants in the home Jehovah has prepared for us.

In the Christian life we must not neglect the visible , yet the invisible must be supremely regarded. In other words we are to be studious unto our earthly duties, like working to support ourselves while studiously being good servants to our Divine Heavenly King. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Please Jehovah ELOHIM YAKOL (God, the Most Able) bless me to concentrate upon the appropriate things in the appropriate manner and in the appropriate time so as to not devote too much time to one or the other. I sincerely ask this in the name of He who walked in perfect harmony when I He walked amongst us Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Is Becoming and Appropriate For.

WORSHIP

Rejoice in the Lord, you righteous ones; Praise is becoming and appropriate for those who are upright [in heart—those with moral integrity and godly character].Psalm 33:1 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Praise is appropriate for those walking in harmony with Jehovah because it is respectful to be grateful to the One who abundantly showers us with His blessings. It is wiser to be grateful for the things Jehovah blesses me with than to pout because I cannot have my own way. Not only does it make our Heavenly Fathers heart dance with joy but He reciprocates back to us ten fold more. You ain’t experienced nothing until you have experience Jehovahs joy in your heart.

We should rejoice because the Holy Spirit has taught us and helps us live a life of integrity. This prevents us from falling into deep shameful and disastrous behavior. Oh it may seem for a while like the wicked are prospering this disposition but Jehovahs righteous hand shall strike them suddenly with no mercy.

We are to rejoice because when we have Godly character that means we emulate Jehovah and that is the best character to possess. As well that means we are close to Him and that is the best blessing of all. It makes for a much more contented life. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: I sing glory, glory hallelujah unto you my Beloved Jehovah Jireh ( God provides ) for constantly providing for this adoring child of Yours. I worship You in the name of He with whom I worship Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Not Until We Have Become Humble and Teachable

follow your ways

 The [reverent] fear of the Lord is the beginning (the prerequisite, the absolute essential, the alphabet) of wisdom; A good understanding and a teachable heart are possessed by all those who do the will of the Lord; His praise endures forever. Psalm 111:10 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

To fear the Lord in this context means to respect Him.

There have been so many times in my life when I see someone new at a job doing something wrong or doing it in a difficult way. I try to teach them the correct way or an easier way and they look at me with contempt like they know so much more than me. That is very rude arrogant and disrespectful. The end result for them is of course disastrous.

So too it is with us.

When the Holy Spirit tries to teach us a better way at life and we arrogantly contemptuously ignore Him and do the exact opposite, not only is the result disastrous but it is arrogant and disrespectful towards Him. Not only must we listen to Jehovah when He speaks to us but we are to be obedient as well. We must admit and submit to His supreme intelligence over our feeble minuscule understanding. Otherwise, what is the sense of Him speaking with us?

“Not until we have become humble and teachable, standing in awe of God’s holiness and sovereignty…acknowledging our own littleness, distrusting our own thoughts, and willing to have our minds turned upside down, can divine wisdom become ours.” — J. I. Packer

Prayer: Please Jehovah Kal El (voice of God) bless me to always listen, understand and obey Your voice because I know You only want what is best for me because You love me and care about me. I sincerely request this in the name of He who always listened to His Heavenly Fathers voice Jesus Christ. AMEN

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

It is Made in the Small Ones.

FOLLOW JESUS

Blessed (happy, fortunate, to be envied) are the undefiled (the upright, truly sincere, and blameless) in the way [of the revealed will of God], who walk (order their conduct and conversation) in the law of the Lord (the whole of God‘s revealed will). Psalm 119:1 The Holy Bible Amplified Version                                                                    

When I was a tree planter we used to plant trees the size of the average baby finger. Yet, in fifty years they grew into seventy feet tall majestic trees. At first they would grow inches every day until they reached a certain height. Then the growth slowed to inches in a week or month.      

So too it is with most Christians. When first adopted into Christs family we grow in leaps and bounds. Then our growth slows. Some become complacent and stay there. Those that persevere grow in inches in weeks, months and or years. But, we continue to grow. It is a lifetime process that continues until we reach Heavens Gate.

“Character may be manifested in the great moments, but it is made in the small ones.” — Phillips Brooks

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Bara (The Lord Creator) for the slow but steady process in maturing me into the beautiful child You intend for me to be. I praise You in the name of He who I deeply desire to be a carbon copy of at the end of Your process 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

Only to Learn That

JESUS CAN

 They were shaken because He was indignant and angry. Psalm 18:7 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Many times in our walk with Christ we have the wrong foundations. Because of this our house is unstable and pron to destruction when affliction, trials, trouble and sorrows come unto us.

In order to prevent this from happening Jehovah must tear down those foundations.

Working in construction building houses I learned that everything must be lined up in building the foundation. If it does not the house is faulty and pron to demolishing when storms hit. That is why most houses built about a hundred years ago are still solid while new houses have so much problems. Those a hundred years ago built the houses to last so they took extra care in how they were built. Many today just slap houses together as cheaply as they can get away with to make profit. When they storms hit we see the end results of who was the better builder.

Jesus is the builder of our house (our spirits) and will not allow faulty construction of it. When we start to stray from the masters architects plans He shakes the house to reconstruct it.

He has shook many of my foundational beliefs to get rid of them because they were hampering my walk with Him. I praise Him for doing it.

“We turn to God for help when our foundations are shaking only to learn that it is God shaking them.” — Charles West

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Kanna (The Lord is Jealous) for being so jealous as to never allow another architect to alter the plans You have for this child’s building You so loving built. Thank you for destroying any layers which will cause this building to collapse into complete and total destruction. I praise You in the name of the master builder Jesus Christ. Amen

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