It is Impossible for a Christian

A STOUT HEART

This is why we work hard and continue to struggle, for our hope is in the living God. 1 Timothy 4:10 Holy Bible, New Living Translation

It is impossible for a Christian to give up. We all work hard at being acceptable children to our Heavenly Father.

Yes there are going to be constant struggles.

Christianity is one war that continues until we reach Heavens gate. Just when one battle is finished and we rest a little another one begins. So many times we feel exhausted and defeated. We desire to give it all up and walk away. But, as Christians when we go before our Heavenly Father, He blesses us with strength, wisdom and the weapons to continue the fight. The longer we are in this battle the stronger our hope is in our Heavenly Father.

Now hope here is not the same as hoping to win the lottery. Rather it means confidence in Our Heavenly Fathers care, provision and deliverance and the eternal Heavenly home He has prepared for us.

“God never promises to remove us from our struggles. He does promise, however, to change the way we look at them.” — Max Lucado

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ‘Ori (the Lord is my Light) for enlightening me with Divine insight into the reason for the constant battles that must be fought on a daily basis in every Christians life ( including mine). This gift encourages me on when all seems lost to victory which glorifies You. I joyously praise You in the name of He whose empty grave brought eternal victory to oh so many. Jesus Christ. Amen

May you be blessed with abundant joy in your heart filled with love and your life overflowing with laughter every day this year.

Use Them to Share with Others

FRUIT OF THE HOLY SPIRIT

 Moses told his father-in-law everything the Lord had done to Pharaoh and Egypt on behalf of Israel. He also told about all the hardships they had experienced along the way and how the Lord had rescued his people from all their troubles. Exodus 18:8 Holy Bible, New Living Translation

This is why it is important to share with others all Jehovah has done for you and through you in your life.

Yes it is important to share this with your children and grandchildren but it is just as important to share these events with your neighbours, your co-workers, those who are baby Christians.

With those outside of the family it may encourage them to become members of Jehovahs family.

For the baby Christians it will strengthen them and encourage them.

When others see or hear of the fact that Jehovah is there with us through it all, it makes Him real to them. He is not some make believe God nor something of old that is irreverent to us today. We use our trials and troubles, sorrows and snares to make Jehovah real to those around us. That is one reason they are given to us, so that we will use them to share with others the providential care of our Heavenly Father.

“The little troubles and worries of life may be as stumbling blocks in our way, or we may make them stepping-stones to a nobler character and to Heaven. Troubles are often the tools by which God fashions us for better things.” — Henry Ward Beecher

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ‘Uzam (The Lord is our Strength in Trouble) for blessing me with teaching me that no matter the trials or troubles, heartaches or misery, You are always right there beside me through it all, many times teaching me things that could not be learned any other way. May I be blessed to share this wisdom and encouragement with other brothers and sisters going through their own troubles so as strengthen them through their difficulties. I sincerely request this in the name of He who walked through oh so many trials and tribulations, heartaches and misery with His beautiful friends here on earth Jesus Christ. Amen

Whatever is beautiful, whatever is meaningful, whatever brings you joy, may you be blessed with an abundance of it this every day this year.

It Is an Abuse To

THE FIRES OF HELL

Prove by the way you live that you have repented of your sins and turned to God. Matthew 3:8 New Living Translation Bible

I have experienced it numerous times when a teacher. A student is caught being naughty. To avoid punishment they promise not to misbehave again. No sooner does class resume then they go right back to doing the same naughty things. The hammer comes down hard on them then even though they beg for forgiveness and promise not to commit the offence again. Not just to punish them for being naughty but to punish them for abusing teachers grace and to make an example out of them to the other student so they behave in class. It works fantastically. If the student refuses to behave they are expelled from class. If the parents argue about it there is a meeting with all the parents. It is explained to them the child refuses to behave themselves. Because of this I cannot teach the class. Vote for it. How many parents want that naughty child to come back in to class. The overwhelming number refuses and chases the naughty child and their parent out of class (this was in China).

So too it is with Jehovah.

There is no sense in confessing to any sin without any intention to take the necessary action to stop committing the offence. Your confession is meaningless. You will forfeit any right to enter Heaven and will instead be cast into eternal damnation in Hell for your wicked deeds.

“It is an abuse to confess any kind of sin, mortal or venial, without a will to be delivered from it, since confession was instituted for no other end.” — François de Sales

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah M’Kaddesh (The Lord is my Sanctifier) for blessing me with the wisdom  and strength to purge myself of that which is detestable unto You and repulsive unto me. I worship You in the name of He who cleansed the leper who was willing to dip into the Jordan river 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.

But Pray for A

DIVINE STRENGTH

. For His loving kindness prevails over us [and we triumph and overcome through Him], And the truth of the Lord endures forever. Praise the Lord! (Hallelujah!) Psalm 117:2 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

It took many decades to believe this.

There was those terrible yeah buts that always came in like a flash when Jehovah asked me to do something for Him. If you think Moses was good at giving excuses at the burning bush, you should have heard some of mine.

We all go through it.

Jehovah is patient with us.

He begins with most of us by asking small things and enlarging them as our faith in Him enlarges as well. Now there are times when He will ask us to jump over canyons but we need to have faith the the jump will be completed on the backs of angels the Lord sends to help in the jump as well as His mighty hand. I have been through a few of them and He was always there with me, through it all, leading me to triumph both for His glory and for my joy and amazement at just what we accomplished together.

“Be brave. Do not pray for the hard thing to go away. But pray for a Bravery to come that’s bigger than the hard thing.” Ann Voskamp

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ‘Uzam (The Lord is our Strength in Trouble) for blessing me with strength to not only endure the hard times but to grow through them to mould me into and every stronger child of Yours. I thank you in the name of the strongest of them all Jesus Christ. Amen

May you be blessed with abundant joy in your heart filled with love and your life overflowing with laughter every day this year.

Now Get to Work.

HE HAS THE WORK PREPARED

 But now the Lord says: Be strong, Zerubbabel. Be strong, Jeshua son of Jehozadak, the high priest. Be strong, all you people still left in the land. And now get to work, for I am with you, says the Lord of Heaven’s Armies. Haggai 2:4 New Living Testament

When Jehovah commissions us we are not to lolly lag around.

We are not to debate with Him, we are not to have planning meetings. We are to get to work.

We need not be concerned about supplies, that is Jehovahs concern not yours. We are to get to work.

We need not be concerned about logistics, that is not our concern, it is Jehovahs. We are to get to work.

We need not take course on how to obtain the objective, Jehovah will teach along the way (and wow, do I ever love His manner of teaching). We are to get to work.

There have been countless times in my service unto my Beloved Heavenly King where this commission was given and I was totally unprepared for the task in every way possible. However, Jehovah always supplied every need for a successful completion of His Divine endeavour. Along the way He always amazed me at His unending allocations and the manner in which they were delivered.

When Jehovah assigns the commission, He always supplies the provision. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you for Your kind graciousness Jehovah Jireh (my God always supplies) in supplying all my needs to continue on being Your honoured emissary. I praise You in the name of He whose blood is the only provision acceptable to unlock Heavens Gate Jesus Christ. Amen

May you be blessed with abundant joy in your heart filled with love and your life overflowing with laughter every day this year.

For All Live in Family Care Givers

CHRISTS STRENGTH

 Speaking not only from my own experience but from listening to those  who are caring for their elder parents they receive nothing but continuous slaps in the face for their loving care. Then when many of the adult children are mentally and physically exhausted and put the parents into a seniors home the parents cry baby and try to blame the children all the while refusing to take responsibility for their own actions. Add to that that the care givers seldom receive any help from their siblings who are usually leeches. The only time they call the parent is when they want money from them.

It seems to me that the most ungrateful folks are the ones that need the help the most yet abuse those who are helping them. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Although this may seem like a curse it is in reality a blessing.

Because, it is in our hard times that we grow the closest to Jehovah and develop the deepest of love, respect and appreciation for Him. Here are some words of encouragement and strength from our loving, caring Father when we feel beaten down by the ungrateful abusive behaviour of those we are helping.

Whatever you do [whatever your task may be], work from the soul [that is, put in your very best effort], as [something done] for the Lord and not for men. Colossians 3:23 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Let us not grow weary or become discouraged in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap, if we do not give in. Galatians 6:9 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

“God never made a promise that was too good to be true.” — Dwight L. Moody

Therefore, those who are ill-treated and suffer in accordance with the will of God must [continue to] do right and commit their souls [for safe-keeping] to the faithful Creator. 1 Peter 4:19 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

 “Where God’s finger points, there God’s hand will make a way.”

Prayer: Oh Jehovah ‘Immeku (The Lord Is With You) I cannot praise You enough for Your wonderful love, strength, provision, comfort, healing, wisdom and encouragement to continue on being obedient unto Your command;If a widow has children or grandchildren, these should learn first of all to put their religion into practice by caring for their own family and so repaying their parents and grandparents, for this is pleasing to God. 1 Timothy 5:4 Holy Bible, New International Version. Please comfort those who, because of the selfishness, brutish behaviour and contempt of their aged parents or grand parents towards the care givers they cannot endure the contemptuous behaviour any more and have to put them in a seniors home. Do not allow the wicked parents or grand parents to put a guilt trip on the adult children. It is their own fault they are where they are. I exalt You and humbly beseech You in the name of He who is loving and the Supreme Judge Jesus Christ. Amen

May Christ bless you with love, joy and peace today and every day.

Jehovahs Emotional Guidebook.

GODS GUIDEBOOK

 This is Jehovahs emotional guidebook.

I have changed the words to first person so it sounds as if Jehovah is talking with me. See how it sounds when it is read like He is talking with you personally.

When I am lonely, I meditate upon Hebrews 13:5 “I will never leave you nor forsake you.”

When fear envelopes me, I meditate upon Isaiah 41:10 “So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God.”

Whenever I feel weak, I meditate upon Philippians 4:13 “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”

Every time I am torn between following the ways of the world or the ways of the Lord, I meditate upon Proverbs 3:5-6 “I trust in the Lord with all my heart and lean not on my own understanding; in all my ways acknowledge him, and he will make my paths straight.”

Whenever I feel lost, I meditate upon Matthew 7:7 “When I ask it will be given to me; when I seek and I will find; when I knock and the door will be opened to me. For, everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened.”

Any time when I am confused in knowing God’s will for my life, I meditate upon Psalm 86:11 “Teach me your way, O Lord, and I will walk in your truth; give me an undivided heart.”

When I the flesh tempts me, I meditate upon 1 Peter 5:8 “Be self controlled and alert. My enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. Resist him, standing firm in the faith, because I know that your brothers throughout the world are undergoing the same kind of sufferings.”

Following these guidelines every day helps me to defeat the devil and his minions and brings a lot of peace to my day.  I listen to them on an mp4 every morning and evening to ingrain them in my mind.

Prayer: I thank you Jehovah KalEl (voice of God) for the numerous ways in which You speak to me. It always amazes me that You always know the proper words to say in the proper manner and in the proper time. I praise You in the name of He who spoke the most amazing words ever spoken Jesus Christ. Amen

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