It is a test of the Heart

tested in affliction

 I know also, my God, that You test the heart and delight in uprightness and integrity. 1 Chronicles 29:17 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Many times a trial is a test.

It is a test of our faith in the providence of our Heavenly Beloved. A test to see if we trust Him in His word, promise , unto us. It is a test of our maturity, not for Jehovahs sake but for ours. It reveals where we need to work more, either by ourselves, or in harmony with the Holy Spirit or to work at completely surrendering unto Jehovah- which is an act of faith.

Many times I have cried out to my Beloved and asked Him why this was happening to me. Why are you refusing to Help me? It was only later that He revealed to me that it was a test.

Sometimes I passed and was ready for Him to mature me in the next step to becoming a mature child of His.

Sometimes I failed and would have to relearn the lessons He was teaching me. He was not angry with me but encouraging me and patient with me.

So, when you are experiencing a trial, tribulation or deep agony have faith that there is a Divine purpose for it and you will come through it with His amazing providence.

As well you will become every closer unto Him through this process.

“For God to explain a trial would be to destroy its purpose, calling forth simple faith and implicit obedience.” — Alfred Edersheim

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah El Roi. You are the God who sees who see my life from beginning until my entrance into Heavens gate. Thank you that through the tests You have allowed to come my way, You have blessed me with coming ever closer in our loving relationship. I praise You in the name of He with whom I desire to walk close with in our Heavenly home Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

One of the Most Important Parts Of

WITH ALL YOUR HEART

The secret [of the wise counsel] of the Lord is for those who fear Him,
And He will let them know His covenant
and reveal to them [through His word] its [deep, inner] meaning. Psalm 25:14 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

One of the most important parts of this verse is those who fear Him. What this means in this context is those who respect Jehovah.

Think about it?

Would you waste your time trying to talk with someone who is rude and disrespectful towards you? And, quite probably very arrogant to boot.

Now, why would Jehovah waste His precious time speaking with a Mr. Know It All anyway. After all, according to them they know better than Jehovah to begin with so it is an exercise in futility to attempt to bless them with wise council.

As absurd as it sounds, I have met many that behave in just such a manner.

Of course there are times when we fall into this same category. Jehovah requests we do this but we believe we have a better way to accomplish the deed (which, of course, always leads to a pitiful disastrous failure.).

A covenant is a an agreement, usually formal, between two or more persons to do or not do something specified.

Now why would Jehovah waste His valuable time attempting to make an agreement with a disagreeable soul?

Yes Jehovah has a deep desire for us to join His esteemed family and to bless us however, as in every family there are always rules.

When you look at the Bible two important words are if and but. If you obey My commands you will be blessed but, if you disobey them you will be cursed.

Much of the Bible has deep meaning that its wisdom is bypassed by the disobedient.

When we agree to obey and respect our Heavenly Fathers covenant with us He will reveal incredible deep hidden meanings in His word.

So for example when Jesus says , “I assure you and most solemnly say to you, before Abraham was born, I Am.” John 8:58 The Holy Bible Amplified Version He is talking about the voice Abraham heard in the bush when he was commissioned to free the Israelite’s from Egyptian slavery which means He has no beginning and no end. This put Him on equal footing as Jehovah. This blows apart any heresy that says that Jesus is not Divine.

As in any family there are secrets that are shared with no one else. In this case what is the use, no one will believe Him anyway?

When you show respect and obedience unto Jehovah, you will be amazed at just what secrets He will reveal unto you. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: All praise by unto You Jesus Sabaoth (Lord of Hosts ) that Your are the only way to Heavens Gate. All others are inferior to You. By Your grace You have adopted me into a Holy family. All glory unto You my love. AMEN

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

It Will Be Given to Him.

Christ, WILL LEAD

If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him. James 1:5 New King James Version

Our Heavenly Beloved does not belittle you when you ask for guidance (you know like: What’s the matter are you stupid or something, oh come on, figure it out yourself, how many times must I explain this to you).

He encourages you to question both Him and His guidance in your life.

The more you respectfully question Jehovah the more he reveals Himself to you. The more he reveals Himself to you the more you love Him and respect Him which will make you worship Him all the more.

 

The more you respectfully question His guidance in your life the less problems you will have which will make you more grateful to Him which will make you worship Him all the more.

It is not a one off experience, it takes a lifetime.

I know this certainly is true in my life.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Rabbi (God is my teacher) for being so patient with this occasional dunce when I am slow to learn. Thank you my Beloved for enlightening me in the divine way in my life. I extol you in the name of the greatest rabbi ever Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the sunshine of Jesus sweet love bless you today and every day

He Can Do the Impossible.

faith in the future

For it is God who works in you both to will and to do for His good pleasure. Philippians 2:13New King James Version

Have you ever been given a “mission impossible” by Jehovah?

You know, when He asks you to do something and you do not have the recourses to do it, skill to do it or experience to do it.

More than once I accused Jehovah of being crazy. You want me to do what? Are You crazy? You want me to go where? Are You crazy?

The thing is though, He always starts me out with small tasks. As I am more and more obedient to Him and reliant upon Him to provide for the task to be completed He gives me more challenging tasks

That may not sound too inviting in our do as little as possible and demand as much as possible world but the bonus is that the more obedient we are to our Master (if Jesus is our King then we are His servants) the more He reveals just how awesome and amazing He is. This creates a more respectful, awestruck and loving heart towards Him and we develop a strong loving relationship with Him.

Wow, what an incredible bonus huh?

“God is looking for those with whom He can do the impossible what a pity that we plan only the things that we can do by ourselves.” A. W. Tozer

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireh (God our provider) for blessing me with amazing adventures as I am Your obedient child in which You always provide for me. Thank you that this blesses me with a deer understanding, love and respect for You my cherished Heavenly Father. I exalt You in the name of my awesome King Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the sunshine of Jesus sweet love bless you today and every day

Give It All.

The Lord is near to those who have a broken heart, And saves such as have a contrite spirit  Psalm 34:18 New King James Version

 

Image

Whenever we encounter trials and tribulations (and we will) and we are at the end of our rope, that is when we are to let go and fall into the loving arms of our caring, healing and wise Father in Heaven.                                                                                                          

It took me many decades to learn this simple but powerful truth. If the lesson had of been learned there would have been much less difficulty in my life.                                                

His answer has come in many different ways. It could be a Bible verse, it could be a song or sermon or it could be a dream (whenever I have vivid dreams they are recorded on an MP3 and written down when I awaken the next morning. They have always had the answers. Maybe not that morning but within three days the answer was revealed to me.).

Do not be afraid to let it all out when you are frustrated, angry, or hurt. Jehovah can take it. Read how they let it all out in the Old Testament.                                                                  

Read how Moses let it out or Job. Be respectful though.                                                      

Now when He reveals to you the answer in order for the situation to be resolved you must be obedient otherwise it is useless.                                                                                            

So for example if you are suffering from kidney stones and it is revealed to you to stop drinking coffee, you must stop drinking coffee or the problem only gets worse.                  

Then do not blame God.                                                                                                

Prayer:Thank you Jehovah Ropheka (God our healer) for being so loving and wise that You are always approachable and bless me with abundant wisdom and resources to solve all my problems. I joyfully thank You in the name of He who always gave the correct medicine when He walked amongst us Jesus Christ. Amen.                                                

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.

Do You Permit of All the Investigation?

Search me, O God, and know my heart; Try me, and know my anxieties Psalm 139:23 New King James Version

FOLLOW YOUR WAYS

Do you honestly allow Jehovah to investigate what is in your heart (not that he does not already know anyway) and reveal to you what your problems are and what must be done to relieve you of them?

His answer may be painful and difficult but many cures are.

If you have an abscess tooth do you think it is enjoyable to have it removed? But what happens if you do not? The infection
may burst and you could die.

What a waste to have your spirit slowly agonizingly die when you refuse to follow Jehovahs spiritual prescription.

Sometimes the prescription may be beyond your capabilities, like forgiving someone who has hurt you bad. That is when you need to depend upon the Holy Spirit to bless you with the power to do what must be done. It will be a struggle and it will be difficult but it is well worth it.

I have experienced a lot of weight off my spirit by obeying and am extremely grateful for the blessing even though it was difficult even with the Holy Spirits help.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Ropheka (God our healer) for healing some of the deep wounds in my spirit and for blessing me with the power to desist from destructive habits. May my will always be surrendered to Your divine wise loving will. I humbly give thanks and ask this in the name of He who because of His obedience all the way to the cross made this blessing possible Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.

My Precious Quiet Time.

For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities his eternal power and divine nature have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.  Romans 1:20New International Version

 

PAPPAS CHILDREN

I love to walk through a forest with a quiet little stream. It is so soothing to watch the fall leaves dancing in the wind with a multitude of colours like banners waving in a parade. To listen to the sweet memorizing sound of the birds singing with child like joy. As I sit by a gentle little rapids all stress is washed away and a feeling of calm and peace envelope every molecule of my being.  The intoxicating fragrance of wildflowers softly gently flowing up my nostrils and into every fiber of my being.                                                                                                   

A feeling as I am one with the world around me is joined with the sweetness of being at one with my beloved Heavenly Father, my precious King and my wonderful Teacher creates a flow that begins in my heart and  comes exploding out of my mouth : I love You oh great and marvelous Lord. I love You. Thank you for blessing me with revealing just a tiny bit of Your infinite beauty and reassurance that You love me and are with me.                                                                                    

The closer we get to nature, the more Jehovah Elohim (God our creator) reveals Himself to us. Joseph- Anthony: Green                                                                          

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Chanan (God is gracious) for the wonderful privilege of spending time with You and enjoying Your wonderful creations together. I joyously praise You in the name of He who taught us the beauty of the flowers in the field Jesus Christ. Amen.                                                                                                             

 

May the sunshine of Jesus sweet love bless you today and every day.
