In Faithfulness You Have

repent

“Before I was afflicted I went astray, but now I keep Your word. It is good for me that I was afflicted, that I might learn Your statutes. I know, O Lord, that Your judgments are righteous, and that in faithfulness You have afflicted me.” (Psalm 119:67, 71, 75) The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Some times intentionally some times unintentionally, we all stray from Christ. He will send the Holy Spirit to guide you back to Him.

If you are stubborn and obstinate, He loves you too much to allow you to walk down the path of ruin so He will send you affliction to bring you back.

I believe that happens to all of us Christians no matter how long we have walked with our Heavenly best friend (Jesus).

When you go astray Jehovah will afflict you to bring you back to the fold like a good parent disciplines their child when they are naughty. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Naheh (the Lord who Smites) for smiting me when I have gone astray of the path You have chosen for this humble servant to take. I understand that sometimes You have to be the oak even though You prefer to be a willow. I exalt You in the name of the King who administers appropriate means to correct His servants Jesus Christ. Amen

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Trust Him For the Rest of the Way. ‘

GOD IS WITH US

Do not fear [anything], for I am with you; Do not be afraid, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, be assured I will help you; I will certainly take hold of you with My righteous right hand [a hand of justice, of power, of victory, of salvation].’ Isaiah 41:10 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

In our walk with Jehovah there is constant fear. That is because Jehovah is constantly calling us to step out into the known and trust in His guidance and provision.

From personal experience it can not be fearful but down right terrifying.

He always calls us out in baby steps in the beginning of our walk with Him and each time we listen and obey we see His providence and then He asks us to take bigger steps as we mature in our relationship with Him. When you are obedient unto Him, you will be amazed at the incredible things He will accomplish in your life and through your life.

Even for us that have walked with Him for a long time there are still times of fear in listening to and obeying Him. The thing is though, that the more you step out into the unknown in obedience, the more you learn to trust and have confidence in Him. In reflection in our walk with Him we will be in constant awe and admiration for Him for succeeding in doing so many impossible feats in our lives and what He has done through our lives .

“At times all of us experience fear. But don’t allow fear to keep you from being used by God. He has kept you thus far; trust Him for the rest of the way.” — Woodroll Kroll

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Immanuel (God is with us) for benefiting me with Your Holy presence throughout my life. May my confidence in You and the rest of the trinity grow stronger every day. I exalt Thee in the name of He who encourages me constantly Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Did You Know That?

GOD IS WITH US

“Now we can rejoice in our wonderful new relationship with God — all because of what our Lord Jesus Christ has done for us in making us friends of God” (Romans 5:11 New Living Testament).

Do you know that?

Do you know that when you accept Jesus Christ as your savior He instantly becomes your best friend?

Wow!

What an awesome thought huh?

Now just as with humans in order for there to be a friendship, we need to have the same interest and desire to share time together.

Do you enjoy spending time with your best friend?

Do you read His love letters to you, the Bible on a daily basis? For a deeper understanding of His love letters may I suggest  Our Daily Journal from RBC and Our Daily Bread by RBC.

Do you listen to His love songs for you, how much time do you spend listening to Christian music? May I suggest Praise 1065 and Joy Fm (St Louis or Florida).

I would like to suggest going to church, however, from a personal experience I find too many wolves amongst the sheep there (please read 2 Timothy 3:15 to see what I experience in church).

Do you listen to His message to you? I like going to seromonaudio.com and listening to Alistair Begg, Charles Spurgon Vance Havener and A.W. Tozer.

Now what makes people friends?

Could it be because they enjoy dong the same thing?

Well what did Jesus do when He was here?

Here is His guide to enjoy camaraderie with Him

Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’ “Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’ “The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’ Matthew 25: 34-40 New International Version

Speaking from personal experience,  in Canada, I have found doing volunteer work extremely rewarding. Both, in personal satisfaction and the knowledge that is was making my best friend very happy.

So how is your relationship going with your best buddy?

To fall in love with God is the greatest of all romances; To seek him, the greatest adventure; To find him, the greatest human achievement. Raphael Simon

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Pryyand (Jesus my friend) for being my best friend and honoring my with such special moments as when we walk together and talk together. I gratefully give thanks in You loving name. Amen.

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

Prayer Must Be

A PRAYING MAN        

 

Prayer is the communion of the regenerated soul with its Divine Parent.

Prayer is God’s own instituted means of obtaining blessings from Him, the Fountain of life.

Prayer must be sincere—we must really be desirous to obtain the blessings we ask.

Prayer must be holy—for if we “regard iniquity in our heart, the Lord will not hear us.”

Prayer must be pious—seeking to obtain blessings, not for our own gratification merely—but for God’s glory. Prayer is a relief and comfort to the troubled soul. Prayer must be importunate—for it is the effectual, fervent prayer of a righteous man, that prevails.

Prayer must be submissive—asking only for what it is God’s will to bestow. Prayer must be in love— love for our Heavenly Father and prayer for our fellow man, whether they be in Jehovahs Divine family or not. Prayer must be reverent—for our God is a consuming fire.

Prayer must be humble—for we are base, and sinful, and unworthy to lift up our eyes to heaven.

Prayer must be persevering—for men ought always to pray, and not to faint.

Prayer must be particular—for generalities mean little or nothing.

Prayer must be universal—entering into everything, all the concerns of life, all the means of grace.

Prayer must be of all kinds—social, domestic, private, spontaneous but never ritualized for that is a stench and insult to our Heavenly Beloved. Prayer must be grateful—abounding in thanksgiving.

Prayer must be expectant—waiting and watching for answers.

Prayer must be believing—we must ask in faith. Prayer must be consistent with the Word of God —we may ask for everything God has promised.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Immanuel (God is with us) for the ultimate treasure, the Your loving gift of communion with You through prayer. It is a precious jewel that I carry close to me, not just in our morning and evening conversations but those which we share throughout the day. I praise You in the name of He with whom I deeply desire to walk with and talk with every day Jesus Christ, my best friend. 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

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

It is Not the Gospel You Believe

Do not conform to the pattern of this world but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what Gods will is. His good pleasing and perfect will. Romans 12:2 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

I have met many that believe they can do what they want and it is okay. No matter how much scripture you share with them that their ways are wrong they refuse to listen.

The worst offenders of course are the fools that believe that once they accept Christ as their savior they can do what ever they like and they are still saved.

The next biggest group of fools are those that believe because Jesus is love everyone will be given a free pass to Heaven no matter how they lived their lives here on earth.

Boy are they in for a shock on judgement day.

“If you believe what you like in the gospel, and reject what you don’t like, it is not the gospel you believe, but yourself.” St. Augustine of Hippo

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Rabbi (God our Teacher) for teaching me the truth that is in the Bible.

Thank you for blessing me with helping me incorporate that in my life when it is difficult to do so, so that I may continue to mature in our Heavenly loving relationship.

I praise You in the name of He who lives the most righteous life of all Jesus Christ. Amen

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

That is Our Great Need Today.

                                      

For the devious are repulsive to the Lord;But His private counsel is with the upright [those with spiritual integrity and moral courage]. Proverbs 3:32 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Repulsive means to arouse aversion or disgust.

This means the devious who are liars, scammers and manipulators are disgusting in the Lords eyes. They are like dung to Him.

Unfortunately we see this conduct polluting every aspect of society today. From individual families to those in the highest office. From those teaching in schools to those in the retail industry. It is like a plague that is killing societies and countries.

What we need it parents and grandparents that lead by example in teaching their children righteous morals, their children’s eternity depends upon it.

Teachers are the next building block in society. We need Godly teachers showing children how to live a Godly ethical life both inside the classroom and out of it.

We need politicians that are doing what is right for society and not to enrich themselves.

We need industry leaders that pay decent wages, and provide good quality products at a reasonable price.

Unfortunately I see societies in the world rotting away like rotten eggs. They are foul to the Lord and foul to me.

Us Christians are never needed as great in history to set an example of integrity and proper morals as we are today.

“It is not guided missiles, but guided morals, that is our great need today.” George W. Ford

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Tsidkenu (The Lord is Righteousness) for blessing me with teaching me Your supreme righteousness and the help You have amply supplied to Your child to become a righteous member of Your Holy family.

May I honor You by exhibiting these qualities to the world to guide them unto You and to a respectful life.

I joyously thank You and humbly request this in the name of the most righteous Jesus Christ. Amen

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