The Lord Knows

For the Lord knows and fully approves the way of the righteous, But the way of the wicked shall perish. Psalm 1:6 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

How many times have we all cried out unto Jehovah when we are going through trials and tribulations: “ My Beloved, do You not see what is happening, do You not care?”

Jehovah see’s things from the beginning to the end. Even though we may falsely believe He does not see or does not care, He is there. Many times He is quietly working through these circumstances in ways we do not see until the time of woe is past. We can however always take comfort that He loves us and will never desert us.

Only God knows three things: the beginning of things, the reason for things and the end of things. A Welsh Proverb

On the other hand there are the fools who believe Jehovah either does not see their wickedness, does not are about it or is helpless to do anything about it. They will learn otherwise when He brings the hammer down strongly upon them.

Just remember that although we do not know, He always knows. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Immanuel (God is with us) that You are always with me through both the good times and the bad.

Thank you that You love me and care about me.

Thank you that even though I do not see it oh so many times You are working quietly behind the scenes for the good of this child of Yours that You love so dearly.

Thank you that You will provide proper retribution to the wicked for their deeds.

I praise You in the name of He who is always there for me Jesus Christ. Amen

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

A Life Without.

                                                            

Blessed [with wisdom and prosperity] is the man whom You discipline and instruct, O Lord, And whom You teach from Your law .Psalm 94:12 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

I see many idiots now proclaiming that it should be legal for folks to use any drug they want and it will not be illegal. To them I merely ask them to research history and see what it was like in the eighteen hundreds and see what it did to families and to societies.

I see many that do not believe in incarceration for criminals and then cry because crime goes up (oh statistics may say it is going down but that is because people do not want to report it because they not only do not see justice done but then the criminals harrass them and the police are helpless).

I see many idiots saying there should not be any corporate punishment in class and then cry baby because the students are unruly and down right violent.

There must be discipline in life or the individuals life and societies will go right down the toilet. And the best discipline come from Jehovah because He and only He know what is truly right from what is wrong.

A society risks disaster that ignores Jehovahs commands. If you doubt me just look up and countries history. Every time they became liberal they ended up in huge disasters. War, crime, famine and disease were their rewards.

A life without Divine discipline is a life of confusion Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah M’Kaddesh (The Lord is my Sanctifier) for disciplining this sometimes very naughty child of Yours to continuously mold him to become You loving sanctified child. Sorry for being occasionally naughty. I pray this in the name of Your most devoted child 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

You’re in Very Good Company.

Wait for and confidently expect the Lord; Be strong and let your heart take courage; Yes, wait for and confidently expect the Lord. Psalm 27:14 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Waiting is an exercise in patience and trust in the Lord.

Sometimes it takes a day, some times it takes months, sometimes it takes years and some times it takes decades for the Lord to complete His work.

It is not dependent upon the Lord how long it takes for fruition of prayers to occur.

It depends upon the right time and place and for the soul you are praying for to become receptive to the Lords call.

For me it took over twenty years for a certain prayer to come to completion.

Even now it still has not been fully answered but is progressing quite nicely. Now even when the prayer is not answered the way you desire it will still be answered.

“Joseph waited 15 years. Abraham waited 25 years. Moses waited 40 years. Jesus waited 30 years. If God is making you wait, you’re in very good company.” Anonymous

So say you are praying for a home in a nice neighborhood but all’s you get is something in the poor section of town. While there you are ministering to those in need. Upon reflection years later you realize that Jehovah chose the right place for you and you would not change places if the house in the nice neighborhood were to be offered to you for free.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireh ( God provides ) for not providing for me what I am not ready to receive.

Thank you for delivering when it is the proper time and the proper place.

I jubilantly praise You in the name of He who came at just the right time to save the world Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Until Our Hearts Are. When You said, “Seek My face [in prayer, require My presence as your greatest need],” my heart said to You, “Your face, O Lord, I will seek [on the authority of Your word].” Psalm 27:8 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Can you walk up to a stranger you no nothing about and start lavishing praise upon them?

Of course not.

So how can you sing praises to an unknown God?

That is why I believe all these concerts with folks waving their hands in the air and singing praise to Jesus in Contemporary Christian Music concerts is a shame. Ask those on stage on in the audience how much of a relationship they have with Christ and most will give you a blank look.

The longer I have been in a loving relationship with Jehovah and the more I get to know Him the deeper the love, admiration and respect for Him. It is with great sincerity and admiration that I worship Him in my daily life, in my daily prayers and in my daily songs unto Him. This causes great songs of love , praise and worship to be sung unto my Heavenly Beloved.

“God is not moved or impressed with our worship until our hearts are moved and impressed by Him.” Kelly Sparks

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Heseh (God is love) for generously sharing Your love with me. In return with a heart full of gratitude, wonder, awe and respect my love for You rules supreme in my heart.

I extol Thee in the name of He whose love for me led Him all the way to the cross 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

In the Quiet Moments

                                                        

The Lord is near to the heartbroken Psalm 34:18 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

I cannot count the number of times worry, sorrow, frustration and anger were so deep with in my soul it felt like a blanket of heavy steel completely encompassing my whole being. Jehovah always led me to a quiet place and there He comforted me, encouraged me and strengthened me.

So many folks laughed and wrote me off thinking I was totally demolished and a failure. The shock to them when they saw me return and go right back at it with gusto was quite humorous.

Sometimes this process was repeated numerous times but there was always victory in the end.

It does not matter what your situation in life there are always times when we need to be alone with our Beloved for Him to care for us both mentally, spiritually and physically.

“Be still, and in the quiet moments, listen to the voice of your heavenly Father. His words can renew your spirit. No one knows you and your needs like He does.” Janet L. Weaver

Prayer: Thank you YAHWEH Ropheka (God our healer) for blessing me with Your gentle loving reassurance, strength and comfort in my numerous times of need. I love You and adore Your for Your abundant grace You have bestowed upon this adoring child of Your. I exalt Thee in the name of the best Healer of all 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

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
