Close To the Brokenhearted.

SPIRITUAL STRENGTH

The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit (contrite in heart, truly sorry for their sin). Psalms 34:18 Holy Bible Amplified Version

When you have lost a loved one through death or divorce or because they have left the nest, your heart is crushed and your heart is broken, why not take it to Jesus?

When walking amongst us did not His family divorce itself from Him and did He not experience broken heartedness when one of His loved ones died? Did He not suffer separation from our beloved Father on the cross?

I have lost many loved ones and He was there to comfort me as no one else could or would.

When you lose your job or home why not take it to Jesus?

Did He not experience homelessness? Didn’t he and His disciple sleep in the wilderness where there was bandits, scorpions and many man eating predators?

I have been homeless and living in a tent surrounded by bears. It was taking security that

I went to sleep with no concern of being attacked while sleeping

Did He not lose His job as a carpenters son (He did not go right from being a carpenters son to His ministry.)?

There have been many times when, through no fault of my own, I was released from a company (usually because they went bankrupt) that I believed I would be at for all of my working years. It was He picked me up when I felt like giving up and going out and pounding the pavement and or upgrading my skills and getting another place to work. For those of us over fifty that are considered unhirable why not ask Jesus how you can be blessed with self employment?

When you are crushed and brokenhearted because of illness, didn’t Jesus experience the pain of whipping and beating in His body and the agony of hanging on the cross? I was a sickly boy with very bad asthma and water on the knee. It was only in reading the Bible and talking with my beloved Jesus that a lot of that pain was endured and I felt His presence the closest to me.

So will He not be close to you and heal you spiritually when you experience these things (He may not heal your relationships or get your job or home back or heal your illness but will He not as a loving Savior be close to you and heal your spirit)?

Indeed may these not be viewed as a burden but rather as a blessing?

It is in our hard times that we are the closest to Jesus. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Shammah (God is present ) for Your life giving presence with me through my oh so many trials and tribulations. If You were not there I do not believe I would have lived through oh so many of them. I give thanks for this wonderful loving care through Your son who experienced everything I have and so much more Jesus Christ. Amen.

May Jehovahs sweet love envelope you today a and every day.

We Find Freedom When We Find

god is faithful

 So if the Son makes you free, then you are unquestionably free. John 8:36 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Some folks invest money to be free from worries when they retire. Many times their investment falls flat and they are left penniless.

Those who are blessed with a loving obedient relationship with Christ knows He will always take care of our retirement needs. We are free from that worry.

Some folks invest in property for security. Then the market collapses and their property is worth nothing compared to the amount they paid for it or their home is destroyed through natural resources.

Those who are blessed with a loving obedient relationship with Christ knows He will always make sure we have a comfortable place to live on this earth until He takes us home.

Some folks exercise and eat properly to stay healthy in their elder years. Then a disease racks their bodies and they are left crippled the rest of their years. They are left hopeless.

Those who are blessed with a loving obedient relationship with Christ knows He will always take care of our spirits which is far more important than our bodies.

There is nothing wrong with these investments in of themselves but when they are used to be independent of Jehovah they are very fragile and those who depend upon them left void of all freedom of worry and need.

“We find freedom when we find God; we lose it when we lose Him.” Paul E. Scherer

“You have made us for yourself [Lord], and our hearts are restless till they find rest in you” St. Augustine

Prayer: Oh my most Beloved Jehovah ‘Immeku (The Lord Is With You) thank you for coming into my life and freeing me from the unmerciful bonds of fleshly slavery (lusts).And, to be free to love You and be loved by You in the divine manner which You desired from the fist man and woman to have communion with You. I praise You in the name of He whose blood made this most treasured gifts a possibility Jesus Christ. Amen

May the light of Christs love shine brightly in your heart today and every day

Is Life and Peace.

 

                                          

Now the mind of the flesh is death [both now and forever—because it pursues sin]; but the mind of the Spirit is life and peace [the spiritual well being that comes from walking with God, both now and forever]. Romans 8:6 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

You cannot serve both the world and Jehovah.

When you serve the world you are serving yourself. This only leads to catastrophe in your body, in your mind and in your spirit. Because you are selfish you refuse to listen to righteous wisdom because that prevents you from being selfish. This means you are going to make plentiful bad decisions in your life for which you are going to suffer.

When you go after the flesh, you destroy the spirit. Joseph- Anthony: Green

On the other hand when we submit to Jehovahs instruction for our lives we are blessed with bountiful blessings of peace, love, joy, security 0f Jehovahs presence and guidance in your life) and strong spiritual and mental health

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Shalom (The Lord blesses with Peace) that even though there are many brutal battles going on in the world around me, You have sheltered me from the majority of them like a hen shelters her chicks.

With the ones that I must battle with You provide strength for ultimate victory. Through all of them You amply supply me with peace, joy, love and security.

I praise You in the name of the Prince of Peace Jesus Christ. Amen

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

The Champion Worry Wort.

 “So do not worry about tomorrow; for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.” Matthew 6:34 Holy Bible Amplified Version

I used to be the World Champion Worry Wort. You name it and I would worry about it. I swear I used to worry about if I did not fart during the day (really). It caused endless sleepless nights. It is surprising I did not have ulcers or a heart attack. The stress meter would be on overload.

As my walk with Christ slowly matured more and more was put into His capable hands, starting off small and gradually enlarging as the walk with Him became more and more secure more and more was surrendered to Him. The end result was a good nights sleep ( which is enjoyed almost every night now).

There is more and more serenity in uncertain circumstances.

There now is amazing physical, mental and spiritual health.

Now there are times when there are uncertain circumstances and or situations that arise that is completely out of my control and a panic attack begins. That is when I sprint for a Bible, a quiet place to be with my Beloved and allow Him to comfort and assure me that every thing is under control. The stress meter goes dead and the worry melts away.

“Never dwell on the tomorrow; remember, that it’s God’s and not ours.” Edward B. Pusey

Prayer: Oh a deep heartfelt Thank you my cherished Jehovah Shalom (The Lord blesses with Peace) for blessing me with peace in every aspect of my life because I know You love me, You care, You help me and guide my steps. You are always there through all my difficulties and sorrows. You are the greatest. I praise You in the name of the Prince of Peace Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

He Hears You.

O You who hear prayer. Psalm 65:2 New King James Version

When you pray you are not praying to a dead idol made of wood or metal or some make believe fellow like Santa Claus or to dead souls, like the saints. That is foolishness.

Instead with reverence, love and sincerity pray to the living God whose throne is in Heaven.

He hears your cry when suffering sorrow. He blesses you with answers that give reassurance and healing.

He hears your cry when you need help. He answers with protection and resources to conquer your adversary.

He hears your cry when you are alone and feel dejected. He blesses you with filling you with His Divine love, comfort and encouragement. He hears your cry when you need guidance in your life. He blesses you with resources and guidance councilors to show you the path you must take.

He hears your cry when you are remorseful He not only forgives you but guides you in the proper manner to reconcile with the one you have done wrong. This blesses you with peace in your spirit.

He hears your cry when you need to learn something. He blesses you with wise teachers and mentors that reveal the knowledge you need.    And of course it is with pure delight he hears your song of praise for His love. To Him that is the sweetest song that ever exists. Of course when we are in a loving relationship we delight in sharing with the one we love how much we love them.

He cherishes your prayer of thank you when He blesses you. That is the respectful thing to do is it not? When you help someone does it not feel good when they thank you? How much more than should we thank our Beloved Father in Heaven when He blesses us?

GOD LOVES YOU

You do not need to make an appointment and he is never too busy. Jehovah is always there, Jehovah always cares. Joseph- Anthony: Green

When you continuously continue in a weakness (like being short tempered) He does not become exasperated with you and give up on you. When you honesty are repentant and humbly ask for forgiveness He will forgive you and thousand times a thousand.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Heseh (God is love) for being such a loving Father to this cherished child of Yours. Thank you for Your blessings of Your Hoy love, strength, wisdom, comfort and encouragement as Your never end provisions. I praise You in the name of Your most special blessing Your Holy Son Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Grace and peace be yours in abundance through the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord.

His divine power has given us everything we need for a godly life through our knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness.

Have You Been Told to Get Out?

Exodus 12 and Joshua 6

Just as the Lord instructed the Israelites to coat their doorposts and they would not suffer the fate of the Egyptians so to was Rahab instructed to tie a red cord outside her window of her apartment, which was on the wall, at Jericho and her family would be spared.

Do you see any similarities there?

Has there been any time in your life that destruction was coming and  the Lord is instructing you, you must do something in order to escape doom?

city shrounded in mist in the mountains seen through the forest Hong Kong-crop

For me, it was articles on a web site that exposed a country that I was dwelling that certain doom was coming and it was time to get out. Boy am I glad I was obedient.

If you neglect to obey these warnings you do so at your own cost.

The Israelites that refused to listen when warned about the Babylonian destruction coming and then the ones before the destruction by the Romans paid a very heavy price.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Yeshua (God our rescuer) for Your mercy in warning me numerous times to evacuate from some place or situation to avoid certain calamity. I laud You for this amazing grace in the name of He whose sacrifice ultimately blesses us from eternal destruction Jesus Christ. Amen.

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