Does Not Give Us

 The Lord says, “I will guide you along the best pathway for your life. I will advise you and watch over you. Psalm 32 : 8 Holy Bible New Living Translation

I have learned the hard way that going my way leads to disaster, going Jehovahs way always leads to success. It took me many decades to learn this. That does not mean it will be easy. As a matter of a fact, it will be very difficult. That is good because it brings us closer to Jehovah, Jesus and the Holy Spirit.

He has promised His guidance is the only true way to go. I know this to be true. Along the way He always provides just the right amount for success.

Why give more than is required, it will only go to waste like the manna in the desert with the Israelis with Moses. He has promised He will never leave us nor forsake us. I know this to be true.

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

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-‘Immeku (The Lord Is With You) for blessing me with allowing me to travel down paths that led only to unfulfillment, pain and sorrow. It was necessary to bring me onto the path to the most fabulous love affair there could ever be, that between You and me. Thank you for leading me into Your loving eternal arms. In the deepest gratitude from this adoring child of Your, thank you in the name of He who is always with me Jesus Christ. Amen

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

I Certainly Don’t Recommend

GODS DELIGHTS

The troubles of my heart are multiplied; Bring me out of my distresses. Psalms 25:17 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

If you want to live an easy comfortable life do not become a Christian.

A Christians life can be expected to be one filled with sorrow, pain, hardship and loneliness.

You will be filled with sorrow at the ones who reject Christ (especially those in your maternal family) and by extension ostracize you. You will not be invited to family get togethers, weddings, funerals or anniversaries. It will cut deep.

You will suffer pain of never being invited to get togethers by those you work with. You will be treated like a freak and mocked.

You will suffer loneliness as Christ takes you away from comforts of this life into service for Him. You will feel as if you are the only person in the world because everyone around you rejects you mocks you and ostracizes you. It will cost you your family, your friends, your career, maybe your health, your financial security.

You will face hardship because of what you have to surrender unto Christ (in the beginning of your walk you will not be sure if He will supply your needs).

If this sounds like to heavy of a price to pay let us look at the rewards:

You can be sure that no matter the family and friends who reject you Christ will bring to you a Christian communion that will be closer than any maternal family member or worldly friend.

No matter recession or physical injury or anything that hampers you finances Christ will always make sure you have a comfortable place to live, clothes on your back and food in your belly.

In your hardship it will bring you ever closer to Christ which will expand your love, admiration, trust and friendship with Him, which is the best treasure of them all.

It is not: is it worth giving up everything to become a Christian but rather why in the world would I desire anything but Christ in my life. Joseph a son of Jehovah

  “I didn’t go to religion to make me ‘happy.’ I always knew a bottle of Port would do that. If you want a religion to make you feel really comfortable, I certainly don’t recommend Christianity.” C. S. Lewis

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ‘Uzam (The Lord is our Strength in Trouble) for blessing me with Your Divine strength to endure and prosper (yes prosper because the prosperity is in the enlargement of our eternal love affair) during my suffering because of my association with You. I exalt You in the name of He gladly enduring the most horrible suffering for me Jesus Christ. Amen

The gift of love, the gift of joy, the gift of peace, these are the greatest gifts that can be given. They are given in abundance to all those in Christs family by our Heavenly loving  Father. May you be blessed with plentiful opportunities to share these with those around you today.

Will Guard Your

do not be afraid

 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:7 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

I have known a lot of war in my life.

The war of worry.

This plagues me with restless nights, bad health and nervous disposition. The only way to be victorious in this war is to lay it at the feet of my Beloved Heavenly Father. He sends the Holy Spirit to reassure me, comfort me and encourage me. He reminds me that everything is in His hands and that everything will work out for my good

The war of fear.

This battle leaves me timid and restless. The only way to be victorious in this war is to lay it at the feet of my Beloved Heavenly Father. He sends the Holy Spirit to reassure me, comfort me and encourage me. He reminds me that everything is in His hands and that He will always supply for my needs.

The war of anger and hatred (this includes jealousy).

This war boils the brain so it cannot function properly. It steals all joy and love from my soul. The only way to be victorious in this war is to lay it at the feet of my Beloved Heavenly Father. He sends the Holy Spirit to reassure me, comfort me and encourage me. He reminds me that the important thing to stay focused on is that those who unjustly inflict pain or sorrow on me shall be punished by His vengeful hand.

The war of loneliness.

The feeling of being unloved and all alone. A feeling so heavy it causes physical pain in my heart and great sobbing. The only way to be victorious in this war is to lay it at the feet of my Beloved Heavenly Father. He sends the Holy Spirit to reassure me, comfort me and encourage me. He reminds me that the important thing to stay focused on is that He loves me with a love that no other can compare with. That He is always with me and has a house built with love awaiting me in His Heavenly home.

The best security system there ever can be is the one wrapped up in Jehovahs loving arms. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Gador Milchamah (The Lord is Mighty in Battle) for providing me with the weapons to defeat satan in his battle against my mind and spirit. This unbeatable weapon of course is You Holy Love. I praise You in the name of my most precious lover Jesus Christ. Amen

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

I Use Both

complete deditacation

  “I am with you always [remaining with you perpetually—regardless of circumstance, and on every occasion], even to the end of the age.” Matthew 28:20 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

I use both as a light unto my closest friend. His name is Jesus.

I use both the good times and the bad ones as a light unto Christ.

The hard times shine the light of how He held my hand through the darkest clouds of sorrow and the difficultest of times. How He gently heals me of both big and small wounds. How He is strong yet gentle. How His love and strength was what got me through them. We are not to whine about them but rather to rejoice in them for it shows His providential care.

I use the good times to show His marvelous generosity to those He loves. How even the littlest of blessing shows His magnitude of love for me. Folks need to hear both. It makes Him real to them and some eager to join His Holy family.

“We are too prone to engrave our trials in marble and write our blessings in sand.” C.H. Spurgeon

Prayer: Please Jehovah Kal El (voice of God) bless me with ample opportunities to give testimony of Your amazing blessings and how the best ones were how You walked through my many trials and tribulations with me . Allow me to speak of the wonderful loving blessings You have generously given me in my life time. I ask this in the name of the most beautiful blessing You have shared with me Jesus Christ. Amen.

The gift of love, the gift of joy, the gift of peace, these are the greatest gifts that can be given. They are given in abundance to all those in Christs family by our Heavenly loving  Father. May you be blessed with plentiful opportunities to share these with those around you today.

Hold On to It

GOD IS IN THE FURNACE WITH US

Do not let your heart be troubled (afraid, cowardly). Believe [confidently] in God and trust in Him, [have faith, hold on to it, rely on it, keep going and] believe also in Me. John 14 1 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Many times when in times of trouble, sorrow or worry I held on to Christs strong, loving hand like a man holding onto the rescuers hand as he hauls me out of a swift raging river that threatens to engulf me. He always pulled me through.

Many times when Christ, my King took this servant of His to worlds unknown it was extremely terrifying. Yet, there was His strong hand gently in mine guiding me through it.

It has taken decades to learn and trust my Savior no matter what comes my way because of the knowledge and faith that His hand is in mine and He will never let me go.

Whatever comes your way always pray first unto our loving, caring Heavenly King for reassurance of His presence through this trauma. He will bless you with peace, and assurance that He is there with you. He is walking with you through every event both good and bad.

Today, why not heart feltly thank Him for the times He has been with you in the past (both that you knew of and the times He was there that you were not even aware of) as His gentle strong hand led you through all of your difficult times.

If you are going through difficult times now, call out to Him and rest in His strong but gentle loving bosom.

Jesus is always there, Jesus always cares. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ‘Uzam (The Lord is our Strength in Trouble) for blessing me with Your strong gentle hand being in my feeble hand as we walked together through all of my difficult times both great and small. I am eternally grateful for this gracious loving gift. I praise You in the name of He who encouraged and strengthen His disciples as He walked with them, Jesus Christ. Amen

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

It is Your Choice.

BURN LIKE THE SUN

Wisdom shouts in the street,
She raises her voice in the markets;
She calls out at the head of the noisy streets [where large crowds gather];
At the entrance of the city gates she speaks her words:
How long, O naive ones [you who are easily misled], will you love being simple-minded and undiscerning? How long will scoffers [who ridicule and deride] delight in scoffing, How long will fools [who obstinately mock truth] hate knowledge?
If you will turn and pay attention to my rebuke, Behold, I [Wisdom] will pour out my spirit on you;
I will make my words known to you.
Because I called and you refused [to answer],
I stretched out my hand and no one has paid attention [to my offer];
And you treated all my counsel as nothing
And would not accept my reprimand, I also will laugh at your disaster; I will mock when your dread 
and panic come,
When your dread 
and panic come like a storm, And your disaster comes like a whirlwind, When anxiety and distress come upon you [as retribution].
Then they will call upon me (Wisdom), but I will not answer;
They will seek me eagerly but they will not find me, Because they hated knowledge
And did not choose the fear of the 
Lord [that is, obeying Him with reverence and awe-filled respect],
They would not accept my counsel,
And they spurned all my rebuke.
Therefore they shall eat of the fruit of their own [wicked] way And be satiated with [the penalty of] their own devices.
For the turning away of the naive will kill them, And the careless ease of [self-righteous] fools will destroy them.
But whoever listens to me (Wisdom) will live securely and in confident trust
And will be at ease, without fear 
or dread of evil.” Proverbs 1:20-33 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Listen to and obey Jehovah now or receive His terrible rewards later. It is your choice. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: I humbly beseech You Jehovah Abba (God our Father) please bless me to always be in harmony with Your word. To do so is rewarded with magnificent closeness with You and prevents heaps of anguish, trouble and sorrow in my life. I praise You in the name of He who I love to walk with and talk with every day, my wise big brother Jesus Christ. Amen

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

 

Only Increases in Value. Happy [blessed, considered fortunate, to be admired] is the man who finds [skillful and godly] wisdom,
And the man who gains understanding 
and insight [learning from God’s word and life’s experiences],
For wisdom’s profit is better than the profit of silver, And her gain is better than fine gold.
   Proverbs 3:13-14 The Holy Bible Amplified Version I have met many fools with pockets full of money. I have many so called guinuses in the stock moarket. I have met many who consider themselves experts at life. Interestingly enough they all fail in their lives. That is because they arrogantly depend upon themsleves instead of Jehovah for guidence. This transends every generation not just the young crowd. I have met many that would be considered paupers in the worlds standards but are some of the wisest folks I have ever met. I eagerly anticipated sitting at their feet and drinking in their incredible wisdom. One thing they all had in common was that they never took credit for themselves but alawys gave the glory where it belongs, unto Jehovah. Wisdoms value never diminishes but only increases in value when it comes from Jehovahs treasure house of knowledge. Joseph a son of Jehovah Prayer: Glory glory excelsis unto You my Beloved Heavenly Teacher for blessing me with Divine wisdom in every perpective of my life. I esteem this treasure above all other and thank You for this blessing in the name of the most wonderful councillor Jesus Christ. Amen May the gentle assurance of Jesus’ sweet love encompass you today and every day. Joseph a son of Jehovah

In the Quiet Moments

                                                        

The Lord is near to the heartbroken Psalm 34:18 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

I cannot count the number of times worry, sorrow, frustration and anger were so deep with in my soul it felt like a blanket of heavy steel completely encompassing my whole being. Jehovah always led me to a quiet place and there He comforted me, encouraged me and strengthened me.

So many folks laughed and wrote me off thinking I was totally demolished and a failure. The shock to them when they saw me return and go right back at it with gusto was quite humorous.

Sometimes this process was repeated numerous times but there was always victory in the end.

It does not matter what your situation in life there are always times when we need to be alone with our Beloved for Him to care for us both mentally, spiritually and physically.

“Be still, and in the quiet moments, listen to the voice of your heavenly Father. His words can renew your spirit. No one knows you and your needs like He does.” Janet L. Weaver

Prayer: Thank you YAHWEH Ropheka (God our healer) for blessing me with Your gentle loving reassurance, strength and comfort in my numerous times of need. I love You and adore Your for Your abundant grace You have bestowed upon this adoring child of Your. I exalt Thee in the name of the best Healer of all Jesus Christ. 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
