Step by Step.

 “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you [and approved of you as My chosen instrument], And before you were born I consecrated you [to Myself as My own]; I have appointed you as a prophet to the nations.” Jeremiah 1:5 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Once we become a Christian that does not mean we are to sit on our hands and wait for Christ to take us to Heaven.

We are to be obedient servants to our King, Jesus Christ. It will not happen over night. We are constantly on the potter wheel where He gets rid of bad dispositions in us while creating a work of art in our hearts. The Christian life is not a one time glory hallelujah event but a constant metamorphosis that continues until we get to Heaven.

“All I know is that I am a product of God and all I can do is the best I can to thank Him and honor Him and try to grow in Him, step by step.” — Bob Smith

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Bara (The Lord Creator) for creating me for Your Divine specific purpose and guiding me to fulfill Your plans in my life. I exalt You in the name of He who fulfilled Your desire for Him unto my salvation upon the cross Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Sees the Invisible

Now faith is the assurance (title deed, confirmation) of things hoped for (divinely guaranteed), and the evidence of things not seen [the conviction of their reality—faith comprehends as fact what cannot be experienced by the physical senses].For by this [kind of] faith the men of old gained [divine] approval. By faith [that is, with an inherent trust and enduring confidence in the power, wisdom and goodness of God] we understand that the worlds (universe, ages) were framed and created [formed, put in order, and equipped for their intended purpose] by the word of God, so that what is seen was not made out of things which are visible. Hebrews 11:1-3 Holy Bible, Amplified Version

Another word for faith is trust.

When Jehovah makes a promise to us we may not see its fruition for years or indeed even decades. We trust our Lord at His word.

I cannot count the number of times Jehovah has accomplished incredible things in my life and through my life. Many times I would stand back in awe and wonder at how some of these things were accomplished.

Now there is no wonder but there is still incredible awe at just what my Heavenly Father accomplishes in my life and through my life. It never ceases to amaze me.

There have been many times when the Lord made a promise to me only for me to inform Him that that is not possible. It has taken numerous years to accept the fact that nothing is impossible for Him. Now I wait in anticipation not that He will do it but I want to see the magnificent manner in which He will do it. Our God is truly an amazing God.

“Faith sees the invisible, believes the incredible, and receives the impossible.” — Corrie ten Boom

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah El Roi (You are the God who sees) for Your omniscient, council in every aspect of my life as You instill in me a stronger and stronger faith in You my loving Tutor. I extol Thee in the name of the best teacher of all Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Choose for Yourselves.

If it is unacceptable in your sight to serve the Lord, choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve: whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the River, or the gods of the Amorites in whose land you live; but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord. Joshua 24:15 Holy  Bible Amplified Version

We must all choose, there is no fence sitting. Either you are for Christ or you are His enemy. There is no such thing as atheist and all other religions are worldly.

Deep in our hearts we know this to be true.

We who walk in the light are blessed with Heavenly communion with a Divine Father who loves us, cares for us, cares about us and blesses us with both material and spiritual blessings. He will not bless us with mansions (at least not here on earth) but He does bless us with dwelling in our hearts and in our lives.

Those without Christ are foolishly blindly staggering through out life with no meaning nor purpose.

At the completion of our physical lives those in the darkness will be condemned to eternal damnation in a place of horrible torment called hell while those who walk in the light shall be blessed with eternal communion with the prince of light in joy, love and peace.

It is your choice, choose wisely, your eternity depends upon it.

””The issue now is clear. It is between light and darkness and everyone must choose his side.” — G. K. Chesterton

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Basileus, meaning “leader of the people” for blessing me with Your Divine leadership with in my life. I exalt Thee in the name of my Beloved Sheppard Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Outside of Christ.

                                         

Be strong in the Lord [draw your strength from Him and be empowered through your union with Him] and in the power of His [boundless] might. Ephesians 6:10 Holy Bible Amplified Version

When we are outside of Christ we are easy pickings for the devil and his minions. Their greatest joy is bringing nothing but sorrow, pain, anger and hatred. He is great at nurturing guilt complexes, jealousy, envy, backbiting, selfishness and a whole litany of other mental problems which slowly destroys all joy from our lives.

As well we are susceptible to being enslaved by society. We fall for the enslavement of trying to keep up with the Jones and stupidly going so deep into debt it will never be paid off. And, if any little catastrophe occurs like a raise in interest rates, a recession ( where you lose your job) the result is that all of your hard work is for naught because you can no longer afford to pay for all your toys and house and lose everything. You are bitter and deeply depressed. We fall for the con men and women that deceive us into foolishly believing that sex out of marriage is fun, drugs are fun, and alcohol abuse is fun ( just look at the rubbish on TV, in the movies and listen to the complete garbage that passes off as music to confirm this). This destroys our minds bodies and spirit over time and leaves us as an empty shell of a being in a total miserable state.

On the flip side when we are in Christ, He blesses us with meaning in life, to enjoy and nurture a loving relationship with Him and a Divine purpose in life, to be obedient servants of our Heavenly King. We never ask why we are here nor what is the meaning of life because our Heavenly King has revealed it to us. When we have this, we have complete strength and wisdom by the Holy Spirit to expose and resist the wicked demons and the foolishness of worldliness. We are blessed with complete fullness of life, both now and eternally.

Outside of Christ, I am weak; in Christ, I am strong.” Watchmen Nee

It is in the storms that Jehovah reveals the most of His love, strength, wisdom and peace that He abundantly blesses us with the most. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Chatsahi (The Lord is my Strength) for blessing me with Divine wisdom and strength to know the devils wiles and blessing with with the strength and wisdom in the proper manner in which to defeat the. I praise You in the name of He who had the strength to defeat the devil in the wilderness Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

I Am in Thy Presence.

 You will show me the path of life; In Your presence is fullness of joy; In Your right hand there are pleasures forevermore. Psalm 16:11 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Jehovah is the best guidance Councillor there is.

He should be, He made us for a specific purpose and the wise follow the path of life He has predestined for them to walk. As we obey His choices for us we experience a oneness with Him which blesses us with a Divine joy which nothing can compare with.

The pleasures are communion with Him and seeing the fruit of our Divine labor. The ultimate pleasure is being blessed with communion with Him in eternity forevermore.

“Help me, Lord, to remember that religion is not to be confined to the church… nor exercised only in prayer and meditation, but that every where I am in Thy Presence.” Susanna Wesley

Prayer: Oh how I exalt Thee Jehovah Pryyand God is my best friend, my most cherished love for the privilege of sharing loving moments with You. They are the most treasured time of my life. I extol Thee in the name of my best friend with whom I cherish every moment we are together Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Stay focused

 

When daybreak came, Jesus left [Simon Peter’s house] and went to a secluded place; and the crowds were searching for Him, and [they] came to Him and tried to keep Him from leaving them. But He said, “I must preach [the good news of] the kingdom of God to the other cities also, because I was sent for this purpose.” Luke 4:42-44 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Many times in while serving our purpose to our Heavenly King things or folks will try (some unintentionally, some intentionally) to distract us from our service. They will entice us with material things like money, sex or power.

Do not heed them, these things are temporary and will be taken from you in the blink of an eye.

Every major task Jehovah has ordained me to be in service unto Him was met with a lot of distractions from others (sometimes it was the devil working through them, sometimes it was well meaning from them but they did not understand the calling and sometimes they were just jealous and spiteful and wanted me to fail) We are to stay focused.

The only way to accomplish this is to stay in continual communion with the Holy Spirit who will bless you with insight into the foolish distraction, the power to resist it and the way to escape it.

Many times it was extremely difficult to resist the temptation laid out before me and it was only by the power of the Holy Spirit that disaster was averted.

Many times what was laid out before me that looked like sweet cherries was actually bitter and sour lemons. I did not know that and would have fallen for the trap if not for the guidance of the Holy Spirit.

The only way to avoid satans trap is to stay on the road Jehovah requests that you walk upon. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Christ Rohi ( Jesus is our Divine Shepherd ) for blessing me with guiding this gullible sheep away from the wicked ones traps to deter me from service unto my cherished King and thank you for providing Divine guidance unto the paths of service unto You that You have ordained me to serve unto You. I praise You in You magnificent name. Amen

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

I am Vindicated.

DEVINE COVENANT

  And you shall know [with an understanding based on personal experience] that I am the Lord; For they shall not be put to shame who wait and hope expectantly for Me. Isaiah 49:23 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Have you ever experienced confirmation from Jehovah from a Bible Verse or from Christians councilors of a certain event that is going to occur in your life?

I have.

Everybody laughed at me and informed me it was certain failure to attempt to follow Christs lead. In all honesty when this first began I doubted myself the outcome. In due course of time Christ did indeed accomplish in me and through me His Divine purpose in my life and through my life.

Now when my Beloved informs me of an impossible occurrence that will happen in my life I have confidence in His providential completion of it. The wonderful thing though, is that He never does it in a predictable manner. I believe this is so no one can claim it is just a coincidence. I always laugh and say: “ You are truly an awesome God and Your ways are so much higher than mine my Love.” with reverential love and joy.

I believe Jehovah does the impossible in strange ways to remind us of just how awesome He truly is. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Now faith is the assurance (title deed, confirmation) of things hoped for (divinely guaranteed), and the evidence of things not seen [the conviction of their reality—faith comprehends as fact what cannot be experienced by the physical senses]. Hebrews 11:1 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Rohi ( Jesus is our Divine Shepherd ) for the amazing manner in which You have led and helped this sheep of Yours to accomplish incredible things for the glory of Your kingdom and the enlargement of it through those You have blessed me with guiding them unto You. I glorify You in You magnificent name. Amen.

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