For Reminding Me With

Trust in the Lord completely, and do not rely on your own opinions.
With all your heart rely on him to guide you, and he will lead you in every decision you make. Become intimate with him in whatever you do, and he will lead you wherever you go. Proverbs 3:5-6 The Holy Bible, The Passion Translation

Oh please my Love, forgive me when I am a dumbo because I doubt whether I can accomplish the task You have given me. I know it is not doubting my ability but rather You wisdom in giving this task to me.

On the flip side, please forgive me when I am arrogant and attempt a task You have not blessed me with. These plans always crash and burn. Sometimes my Love, it feels as if You have abandoned me.

Thank You Holy Spirit for reminding me with how You walked with me in the past even when it didn’t feel like it. Thank you for maturing me to always walk in harmony with You all the way to the Heavenly home my cherished Poppa has prepared for me.

I pray this in the name of He who will greet me at Heavens gate with great joy, my adoring big brother, Jesus Christ. Amen

May the light of Christs love shine brightly in your heart today and every day Joseph a son of Jehovah

Believe It or Not There Are

 If we claim we have no sin, we are only fooling ourselves and not living in the truth. 1 John 1:8 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Believe it or not there are folks that live as if they believe they are sinless.

Whenever the do something wrong they quickly make up excuses for why A: that it not what really happened,

B: it was not their fault or

C: it is okay because everyone else is doing it.

Trying to convince them of their wrong doing is exhaustive.

I have found the best last response to these lies is :

“You may lie to me and if you repeat the lie enough, even convince yourself, but you cannot con Jesus.” Joseph a son of Jehovah

and then walk away.

It shocks even the so called “unbelievers”.

Many times we commit sins without even knowing it. That is why we need to be sensitive to the Holy Spirits guidance and quickly repent of the sin before its roots grow too deep. Then, it is a real battle to conquer them. With the help of the Holy Spirit this can be accomplished.

Pull out your sins when they first occur to prevent them from taking root unless you want a real battle on your hands. Joseph a son of Jehovah

The beautiful thing is though, that when we repent ( which means we are to admit what we did, admit it was wrong, ask for forgiveness, stop committing the sin and make restitution for the offence committed- so if we sold something from someone we are to give it back), Jehovah is quick to forgive us.

But if we confess our sins to him, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all wickedness. 1 John 1:9 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Prayer: Please Jehovah Mekaddishkem (Exodus 31:13 The LORD that Sanctifies Me) bless me with the Holy Spirits help to convict me when I grieve You and the help me repent so as to remain a child of Your with whom You are well pleased. I sincerely request this in the name of He whose blood brought me redemption Jesus Christ. Amen

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

We Are Not To

 After the Lord had finished speaking to Job, he said to Eliphaz the Temanite: “I am angry with you and your two friends, for you have not spoken accurately about me, as my servant Job has Job 42:7 1 John 1:9 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Jobs friends were guilty of giving bad advice. But, they did so out of love for Job. They did so to try to make things right in his life. I am sure he realized this and that is why he asked Jehovah to forgive them.

We all receive bad advice from others who have good intentions.

We are not to hold it against them but rather be grateful to them that they cared enough to offer the advice.

We are to forgive others for their flawed advice and ask Jehovah to prevent us from giving it. When we do give it we are to sincerely repent.  Joseph a son of Jehovah

We are as well, to ask Jehovah to forgive them for the bad advice as we are to forgive them.

On the flip side of the coin we are to apologize to those we have unintentionally given bad advice to as well as ask Jehovah to forgive us and to bless us with the means to reconcile with the offended ones.

Prayer: Please Jehovah El Emeth (Psalms 31:5 LORD GOD of Truth) forgive my well meaning friends when they innocently provide faulty advice to my problems. They are but simple folk compared to Your wisdom. Please bless me with the Holy Spirits guidance to always provide Divine guidance when called upon by others. I humbly request this in the name of the best advice giver there ever was Jesus Christ. Amen

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

It Hurts Two Very Important Ones.

 Repent [change your inner self your old way of thinking, regret past sins, live your life in a way that proves repentance; seek God’s purpose for your life] and believe [with a deep, abiding trust]in the good news[regarding salvation].” Mark 1:15 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

When you refuse to repent it hurts two very important ones. The first and most important one it hurts is Jehovah

Because you refuse to repent there is arrogance in your heart. Because Jehovah is love and you have arrogance in your heart, you separate yourself from Him. You are too arrogant to say you are sorry to Him so you are not forgiven That hurts Him tremendously.

The next one you hurt is yourself. The longer you refuse to repent the further you are getting away from your loving relationship with Jehovah and getting closer towards Hell, both in this life and in the eternal one.

Many times the offence you have committed involves someone else so you have hurt them and your relationship with them. So, many times there is a third party that you have hurt as well.

Repentance is the best medicine there is for your mental, physical and spiritual health. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Goelekh (Isaiah 49:26&60:16 The LORD Thy Redeemer) for blessing me with redemption whenever I repent of my sins. Thank you Holy Spirit for making me sensitive to my sins and teaching me the proper way in which to repent to the one I have offended. Thank you Jehovah for making it all possible in Your divine plans to redeem Your children. I praise You all in the name of He whose blood made it all possible, Jesus Christ. Amen

One Whose Heart Breaks When

 I live in the high and holy place with those whose spirits are contrite and humble. I restore the crushed spirit of the humble and revive the courage of those with repentant hearts. Isaiah 57:15 Holy Bible, New Living Translation

A contrite heart means one whose heart breaks when they sin.

Now do you notice that Jehovah lives in a high and holy place?

That can only mean Heaven.

Do you notice that those with a contrite heart live there with Him?

When we are naughty and then repent (which means we admit what we did, admit it was wrong, apologize for it, ask for forgiveness and make restitution where possible) then Jehovah takes our spirits up to Heaven to be with Him, if only for the moment of when we repent.

I believe this is a sign from our loving Heavenly Father that our sins are truly forgiven.

The Holy Spirit instills in us all that which is right and that which is wrong. We receive the proper rewards for the decisions we make. Joseph a son of Jehovah.

See how He says He will revive those of a repentant heart.

I know from my experience I felt crushed with remorse, weak and feeble. After repentance my heart felt as if a heavy burden had been lifted from it and danced with joy and gratitude for the forgiveness that was blessed upon me by my Heavenly Father (even when those that we offended were not so generous nor forgiving).

“Trust the past to God’s mercy, the present to God’s love and the future to God’s providence.” St. Augustine of Hippo

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Goelekh (Isaiah 49:26&60:16The LORD Thy Redeemer) that when I repent, You gently redeem me back into Jehovahs holy family. I praise You in Your kind, loving name. Amen

May love be in your life, may hope be in your heart and may peace be in your every day walk with Christ. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Thank You That You Are

Dear Father,

Thank you that You are a compassionate, merciful God You . I humbly bow before You my Love at Your feet, asking You to bring mercy where judgment has been earned. I am deeply sorry for allowing my heart to be led astray by my own selfish desires and the things of the world, for the ways I have turned away from You, and sinned against You and You alone.

Although I have been a disobedient child of Yours and my sinfulness deserves punishment, You forgive and pardon those who humble themselves before You. Where judgment is warranted, You give mercy.

Forgive me my loving Father and be merciful to me. Soften my heart, God, to be tender towards You, to seek your face, and to long for your presence every moment in my life.

I meekly request this in the name of He who graciously shed His priceless blood for my forgiveness Jesus Christ

Amen.

May you be blessed with abundant joy in your heart filled with love and your life overflowing with laughter every day this year. Joseph a son of Jehovah

A Prayer to Forgive Those

 

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

Father I deeply desire to forgive other as You forgive me.

Help me to forgive those in my care when they are selfish, ungrateful and abusive towards me. I need this to prevent me from having my heart filled with hatred and bitterness. If the heart is filled with this then it is impossible to care in a loving manner.

Help me to stay focused on the fact that in serving them, I am serving You and You are always appreciative of my compassionate efforts.

do not allow them to control you

But, Father just as You specify that repentance must come before forgiveness so too must there be repentance before the healing is possible.                 

Please send the Holy Spirit to convict them and bring them unto repentance less their attitude condemn the to Hell.

Thank you that You are always there for me to cry out my anguish to when those in my care are selfish, abusive and ungrateful. I humbly request this in the name of He who forgave the repentant sinner on the cross beside Him, Jesus Christ. Amen 

Those who refuse to repent are also those who will continue the abuse. Joseph a son of Jehovah

 

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

Is a Great Fisherman.

WHEN SATAN ATTACKS

The ancient serpent called the devil, or Satan, the one deceiving the whole world Revelation 12:9 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

“Satan never sells his poisons naked — he always gilds them before he vends them.” — Charles H. Spurgeon

This is how addiction begins.

Satan is a great fisherman. He makes deadly lures look like delightful delicacies. Sure it feels good to begins with but once he has you hooked you can squirm all you like but you are his. That is addiction

There is only one way to escape his deadly lure. His name is Jesus.

When you repent of your sins and depend upon the power of Christ, Jesus will smash those chains and set you free.

So if the Son makes you free, you will be free for sure. John 8:36 The Holy Bible, The New Life Version

That was the only way I was freed from alcoholism. I was and alcoholic for over forty years. I tried diet, counselling, meditation all to no avail. When I finally surrendered it to Christ the chains were instantly smashed and I have been free of them for ten years now. It was the same experience with smoking.

Prayer:Thank you Jehovah Moshiekh (Isaiah 49:26&60:16) The LORD my Savior for blessing me with smashing the chains of addiction which satan tricked me into enslaving me.                                      Thank you for Your salvation which lead me away from satans wiles and into Your Holy loving sphere that leads me ever closer to You.                                                                                                                     I exalt You in the name of He who defeated satan on resurrection day Jesus Christ. Amen

May you be blessed with peace and joy every day. Joseph a son of Jehovah

An Exclusive Organization.

GODS PRECIOUS JEWELS

So now there is no condemnation for those who belong to Christ Jesus. Romans 8:1 The Holy Bible New Living Translation

When we accept Jesus not just as our Savior but as our King we are members of an exclusive organization.

We are excluded from judgement because even though we mess up (as we all do) when we repent (which means admitting what we did, admitting it was wrong, asking for forgiveness and stop committing the offense we are forgiven) we repent unto our King and Heavenly Father because we know our short comings hurt them. Because we love and respect them when we do something that hurts their heart, it hurts ours as well. That is why we repent.

That is why there is no condemnation for us, because we repent. Because we love Jehovah, Jesus and the Holy Spirit when we grieve them it grieves us. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Go’el (The Lord is my Redeemer) – Is. 49:26, 60:16 for blessing me with redemption through Your precious blood. Please Holy Spirit bless me to always walk in accordance with Your Holy will so as to always bring joy to those with whom I love and adore most: Jehovah, Jesus and You. It is in the name of my most Beloved best friend I ask Jesus Christ. Amen

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

I was Convicted

delightful panoramic water dance

May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing to you, O Lord, my rock and my redeemer. Psalm 19:14 The Holy Bible, New Living Testament

Recently I was convicted while reading a morning devotional. The Holy Spirit convicted me that the words of my mouth did not match the meditation of my heart. Someone was terribly abusive to me and I said some very unchristian words in anger and frustration (the abuser did not care that her actions caused me great physical pain).

I promptly repented and even though she is still abusive my meditations with my Beloved are in love again.

It does not matter how much anyone is physically and or mentally abusive to me. All that matters is my loving obedient relationship with my Heavenly Beloved. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Please Jehovah Heseh (God is love) bless me to always keep my focus on our loving relationship no matter how abusive those around me are. It is the anchor that hows me close to You in those horrible storms. I humbly request this in the name of He who calmed the violent storm on the seas for His disciples Jesus Christ. Amen

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