An important lesson.

“God does not give us everything we want, but He does fulfill His promises, leading us along the best and straightest paths to Himself.” Dietrich Bonhoeffer”

We have a epileptic cat.

One day I opened a jar of coconut oil and he just gobbled it up. He then proceeded to have seven seizures in less that eight hours.

The Holy Spirit spoke to me and said:” You see, sometimes what we desire Jehovah will not give us because it will do us more harm than good. What we think is good is actually a curse. “

So if you have prayed for something and have not received it, instead of pouting thank Poppa for it because it would end up doing you more harm than good.

By the way a little pet advice. DO NOT give your cat or dog dry food. It causes many serious health issues including diabetes.

And, instead of putting a big bowl of food out for them where they can be gluttons and put on weight, feed them a meal in the morning and in the evening.

Every vet I talked with has said the same thing.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireh ( God provides Philippians 4:19 ) for blessing with giving me what I need and not giving me what will do me harm. I praise You in the name of Your greatest gift, Jesus Christ. Amen May you have a grateful towards He who has given so much to you.

Seleh- stop and think about it.

That is the Two Way Street Of.

Some men and women think that Jesus’ love is unconditional. That is satanic. “If you love me, obey my commandments. John 14:15 The Holy Bible The New Living Translation

And what is Jesus’ commandments?

Christ first, others second self last is the simplest way to put it.

So too it is with our interpersonal relationships.

Do not enter into a relationship that goes down a one way street called gimme, gimme, gimme. That is where one partner is always taking but never giving in return. That is domineering and selfish. That leads into a living hell on your part. Avoid these relationships at all cost.

If you must have a relationship with a narcissist make it a formal one.

Be polite. Be respectful but, keep it at arms distance.

Always pray for The Holy Spirit to guide you away from these relationships.

If you must be involved in one request He guide your behaviour to protect you from these despicable creatures.

As well, ask The Holy Spirit to guide you to those who will respect you and love you. And, they appreciate your love and respect. That is the two way street of friendship.

I would rather have one true friend than a hundred good time friends. Joseph- Anthony a Son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Christ Eli Maelekhi (Psalms 68:24 GOD My King ) for blessing me with Your most special friendship. Thank you for sending The Holy Spirit in the proper manner to conduct myself towards the appreciative and the unappreciative that come into my daily life. I praise You in Your loving name. Amen

Are Not Born With

Human beings are not born with self-control. We have to learn what to do with the mad that we feel. Learning to control ourselves is a long, hard process. It happens little by little. In fact, it is something we work on all through our lives. Fred Rogers

But, Poppa, Help Me To

Make allowance for each other’s faults, and forgive anyone who offends you. Remember, the Lord forgave you, so you must forgive others. Colossians 3:13 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Prayer: Oh Jehovah Elohay Selichot (God Of Forgiveness 1 John 1:9), forgiveness does not come naturally to me. Especially when the offender refuses to even admit what they did much less repent of it.

But, Poppa, help me to forgive others knowing we will all fall short and fail each other and You.

Please help me to be quick to admit when I am wrong and apologize with sincerity and love.

My mistakes and repentance is a platform to grow closer to You, Father.

Though it is hard to admit when I have made them, help me to bring them to You in humility.

I desire to model this love to those you have brought into my sphere .

You assure me I am always forgiven after I repent, and never loved less.

I pray for that loving grace to permeate in my life toward those that have offended me.

I humbly request this in the name of He who forgives the filthiest sinner upon repentance, Jesus Christ. Amen

A Prayer to Speak with Love and Respect

Jesus looked at them intently and said, “Humanly speaking, it is impossible. But not with God. Everything is possible with God.” Mark 10:27 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Prayer: Oh Jehovah KalEl (voice of God Isaiah 30:21 ) please bless me with the ability to communicate with those You have placed in my care in a manner in which they will understand what I am saying.

Just as important Poppa, please bless me with the ability to understand what they are trying to communicate with me.

Please my Beloved bless me that You will guide my words this day to bring encouragement, comfort, assurance and love.

Please strengthen me to bite my tongue to not lash out with hurtful words when disputes erupt.

When the fires start to flare when they are being stubborn and obstinate, please bless me to close my eyes and to call out unto You to bring peace into the conversation.

And, with the wisdom to know when to walk away because of the futility in the conversation.

Please bless me with the ability to come back later and speak with respectful authority to which they must succumb to. Or, with the wisdom to just walk away and let them suffer the consequence for their stubbornness.

Please bless us to be loving and respectful towards each other as You and I are loving and respectful towards each other.

I humbly request this in the name of He whose speech was always respectful and loving Jesus Christ. Amen

Unlocks the Fullness of Life.

“Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today and creates a vision for tomorrow.”  Melody Beattie

All of Grace

Grace—what a sweet fragrance. It is the greatest theme in the Bible.

Abounding grace, wondrous grace, boundless grace, fountain of grace, unfailing grace, unmeasurable grace, electing grace, matchless grace, overflowing grace, redeeming grace, pardoning grace, plenteous grace, unfailing grace, fullness of grace, efficacious grace, magnified grace, refreshing grace, sovereign grace, and salvation by grace, grace rich and free!

“Oh to grace, how great a debtor.”

God is exceedingly gracious to sinful man. Grace is the unmerited and undeserved favor of a holy God upon sinful depraved human beings. It is His kindness, love and nature to be gracious to humanity.

Grace is the very opposite of merit. It is totally undeserved favor of God toward the sinner. However, it is more than that, it is favor shown to the one who has deserved the very opposite.

What better definition of grace can you find than that expressed by the apostle Paul in Romans 5:8? “But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.”

In contrast to contemporary man’s thinking, God does not owe sinful man anything. Every blessing humanity enjoys is the result of God’s “common grace.”

Every person is a recipient of God’s “common grace” whether he acknowledges it or not. However, “common grace” saves no one, and it never has. We need “special grace” to be saved.

“Saving grace,” on the other hand, redeems sinful man for time and eternity.

The apostle Paul tells us that no matter how great our sin, the grace of God is proven greater. “The Law came in so that the transgression would increase; but where sin increased, grace abounded all the more, so that, as sin reigned in death, even so grace would reign through righteousness to eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord” (Rom. 5:20-21).

“Sin increased,” actual transgressions increased, but “grace abounded all the more.” More grace added to this super abundance of grace. Grace was added to more grace, over and above the grace that super abounded, with even more grace added to that!

“Oh, to grace how great a debtor”!

Do you need grace? Come to the fountain of super abounding, flooding grace!

All the Law can do is point its finger and say, “You are guilty!” It condemns sinful man. It shows sin for what it is in the eyes of God.

However, God has more than an abundant supply of grace. There was plenty of sin, but much, much more grace in superabundance. There is victory for the sinner in grace.

This superabundant grace replaces the reign of sin. We do not have the power to break free from sin, therefore it reigns and we cannot escape the penalty of death. “The wages of sin is death” (Rom. 6:23).

However, God’s grace reigns through the righteousness of Jesus Christ. Yes, grace triumphs when God imputes His righteousness and gives eternal life to the sinner who believes on the saving death of Jesus Christ to save him (Jn. 3:161 Pet. 1:18-19Rom. 5:6810:9-10138:15:1-22 Cor. 5:21).

God is gracious.

What is your response to God’s saving grace? Your eternal destiny depends upon your response to His saving grace. Christ died for you so that “whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.”

The great preacher of grace, John Newton, wrote:

“Amazing grace! How sweet the sound

            That saved a wretch like me!

I once was lost, but now am found,  

            Was blind, but now I see.”

“The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you.”

Selah!
