The Godly Are Bettered By

WE ARE PURIFIED

Through Him we also have access by faith into this [remarkable state of] grace in which we [firmly and safely and securely] stand. Let us rejoice in our hope and the confident assurance of [experiencing and enjoying] the glory of [our great] God [the manifestation of His excellence and power]. And not only this, but [with joy] let us exult in our sufferings and rejoice in our hardships, knowing that hardship (distress, pressure, trouble) produces patient endurance; and endurance, proven character (spiritual maturity); and proven character, hope and confident assurance [of eternal salvation]. Romans 5:2-4 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

It is in the hard times we learn the most and mature the most as we are guided by the Holy Spirit. We do not become bitter and self pitying like those in the world. Rather, we rejoice in them afterwards because we can see Jehovahs strong, secure hand leading us through them.

It is in our sufferings that Jehovah reveals the most of His love and healing which draws us ever closer to Him which is the only way for that to occur. We do not pout and play the blame game like those in the world because we understand that it occurred for our betterment.

Each of these brings stronger confidence in our loving Heavenly Fathers providence in every part of our lives. Because we are His children we always have access to Him and He is never too busy for us but takes an active role in our lives.

For these blessings we should continually praise Him and rejoice over Him continually every day.

When we know that the angel of death shall come a calling (and I believe that Jehovah always alerts us that our time will soon be up, even though we do not know the hour or the day. This is because of what has been witnessed in the palliative care in hospitals and volunteering in seniors homes) Jehovah shall cause us to reflect back on our walk with Him and blesses us with assurance of the Heavenly home that is awaiting us.

As the wicked are hurt by the best things, so the godly are bettered by the worst.” — William Jenkyn

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ‘Uzam (The Lord is our Strength in Trouble) for strengthening me, comforting me and encouraging me through lo the many trials, tribulations and sorrows that have come my way in my walk with You. I would never had made it without You gentle strong hand supporting me. I praise You in the name of He who strengthened the weak as He walked amongst us Jesus Christ. Amen

Wishing you a house full of sunshine, hearts full of cheer and love that grows deeper each day of the year. Welsh blessing

The Flesh Counts for Nothing.

DLEICATE RED  ROSE PEDALS

The Spirit gives life; the flesh counts for nothing. John 6:63 New International Version

The flesh becomes old, it breaks down. Your faith in your abilities is faulty.

That which brings you pleasure today brings you debt tomorrow (going in debt to buy expensive cars you cannot afford, getting mortgages for houses you cannot afford).   Joseph- Anthony: Green

At some time you will look at it and realize it cannot and will not love you in return.

“The knowledge of Christ’s love for us should cause us to love Him in such a way that it is demonstrated in our attitude, conduct, and commitment to serve God. Spiritual maturity is marked by spiritual knowledge being put into action.” — Edward Bedore

Having a relationship with our beloved Father in Heaven brings constant renewal and strength. As we grow deeper in this divine relationship we cannot help but love and respect our Beloved more and more and want to please Him more and more. The way we please Him is seen in our attitude, our beliefs and commitments.

“Measure not men by Sundays, without regarding what they do all the week after.” Thomas Fuller

 

The more we know Him and love Him the more He will light our paths of life. We put this knowledge into action as an act of not just obedience but as an act of love.

Listen, my son, and be wise, and set your heart on the right path. Proverbs 23:19 New International Version

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Elohim (God our creator) for blessing me with the greatest tutor of all, the Holy Spirit, to create a loving obedient child of Yours. I praise You in he name of Your most obedient son Jesus Christ. Amen.

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