It is Indeed the Coldest and Darkest

GODS ASSURANCE

 

Just Before. Shortly before dawn Jesus went out to them, walking on the lake. Matthew 14:25 The Holy Bible New International Version

Being an avid outdoors man all my life I can certainly attest to the fact that it is indeed the coldest and darkest just before dawn.

From decades of experience it seems to me like Jesus always comes to us in our trials and tribulations, sorrows and danger when it is its most intense.

I think the reason for that is most of us chose to face our giants alone being independent.

It is only as they get progressively worse and all else fails that we go to Christ.

One of the benefits of this is our great and deep appreciation for His rescue.

Unfortunately for us the lesson of depending upon Him for salvation must be repeated numerous times before we accept the fact that it is unto Christ that we must always go whenever any trouble comes our way.

Finally learning that lesson and going to Christ first has prevented my storms from becoming full blown destructive typhoons.

Just remember Jesus has been there, Jesus cares. He is always willing to help but we must first call out to Him and then obey His instruction for us. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Since he himself has gone through suffering and testing, he is able to help us when we are being tested. Hebrews 2:18 The Holy Bible, New Living Translation

Jesus’ love is the bright healing light that evaporates that darkness of sorrow, worry, pain, loneliness and fear. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ‘Ori (the Lord is my Light) Psalm 27:1 for blessing me with being the beacon of love, strength and assurance during my darkest hours. I praise You in the name of He who is the light of the world Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Is Not a Real Christian

SERVING CHRIST

 Dear brothers and sisters,we urge you in the name of the Lord Jesus to live in a way that pleases God. 1 Thessalonians 4:1 Holy Bible, New Living Translation

A Sunday Christian is not a real Christian but a bench warmer. Sunday Christians are those that only have anything to do with Christianity on Sunday during a sermon (even then, how many are either sleeping or secretly playing video games during the sermon? How many are looking at their watches and wondering when the sermon will finally get over?).

Being a real Christian is the hardest commitment you will ever make. It means you live a life that will be mocked by those around you, especially family and friends. It means giving up your wants and desires for Jehovahs will in your life. It means suffering, hardship, and a lot of tears. Yes, this is a calling only for the weak, not the strong.                                                        

If you are strong you will depend upon yourself which only brings failure.

If you are weak you will depend upon Jehovah. That will not only bring success in His endeavors in your life but the greatest blessing of all, an extremely close relationship with Jehovah, Jesus and the Holy Spirit. It will bring you a fulfilling life and accomplishments like you would never dream of. It is the greatest of adventures there can ever be.

“Some Christians haven’t even attempted to think about whether or not they would die for Jesus because they haven’t really been living for Him.” — DC Talk

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Hamelech ( Jesus my Lord King ) for the distinction of being one of Your chosen subservient servant. I laud You in Your majestic name. Amen

May you always be blessed with the strength of the Lord in Your heart and in your mind. Joseph a son Jehovah

You Must Clothe Yourselves With

LOVING TO EACH OTHER

  Since God chose you to be the holy people he loves, you must clothe yourselves with tenderhearted mercy, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience. Colossians 3:12 Holy Bible, New Living Translation

There is too little of tender hearted mercy today. Tender hearted mercy means that our hearts ache when we see someone in need. We make a commitment to help them where they cannot help themselves (do not mistake that for refuse to help themselves. If drug addicts refuse to take the steps necessary to destroy the habit all you help is nothing more than a crutch to them which does not help them). This is not a one day event or token kindness like giving to the food bank (although there is nothing wrong with that) but rather a long term commitment.

So if there is a youngster that is having problems in life us older generation should come along side of them and offer them our experiences, both good and bad (yes it is good for the younger generation to hear of our failures to help them see that we were just like them).

We must exhibit kindness, especially to the elder generation. If a senior needs someone to cut their grass or shovel the snow from their driveway we are to offer to help them (be careful not to be abused though. Just because they are seniors does not mean they cannot be manipulative, indeed most seniors I know are very manipulative.

That is why it is so important to pray to Jehovah to guide you to where your help is appreciated).

We must be there to strengthen the weak when temptation comes a knocking at their door. We have all opened that door when we should not have from time to time so we know what they are going through.

Resolve to be tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving, and tolerant of the weak and the wrong. Sometime in life you will have been all of these. Lloyd Shearer

Prayer: Please Jehovah Heseh (God is love) bless this child of Yours to emulate Your love with all those I encounter today so as to be a light to guide them to the most incredible love affair there ever can be or will. I humbly request this in the name of He who showed His supreme love for me on the cross Jesus Christ. Amen

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

He Blesses Us With The

SPIRITUAL STRENGTH

It is God who enables us, along with you, to stand firm for Christ.2 Corinthians 1:20-22 Holy Bible, New Living Translation

We cannot stand alone when we are Christians. The devil is too willy and strong.

The world is too overpowering to even attempt such a thing.

However, when we stand upon the rock of Christ nothing can or ever will defeat us. He blesses us with the strength, wisdom, grace and resources to a successful journey to His Heavenly home.

As well, in time of need, He will bring along those encouragers that invite us to not give up but rather give in. Give in to the power of The Holy Spirit which dwells with in us.

We will not succeed in all of the endeavors that come our way but they will be used as teaching lessons to continue on.

The other reason we will occasionally fail is to teach others later through our failure and how Jehovah picked us up and encouraged us on.

“You will never stand alone while standing on the Word of God.” Kathryn Souza-Wine

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ‘Izoa Hakaboth (Lord Strong and Mighty) for blessing me with Your Divine strength and might as I travel about this day and every day. May I be blessed to share these with those who are in a time of weakness and need so as to strengthen them as You have strengthened me. I humbly request this in the name of the strongest, mightiest of them 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

Change It to Me

DELIVERANCE COMES FROM THE LORD

 So we can say with confidence, “The Lord is my helper,  so I will have no fear.  What can mere people do to me?”Hebrews 13:6 Holy Bible New Living Translation.           

 Change it to me Instead of we we can say with confidence say I can say with confidence. Instead of saying what can man do to me say what can my boss do to me when I refuse to do something unethical?                                                       

What can the politically correct lie breals do to me when I stand up and speak the truth and refuse to cow tow to them?                                                           

What can the government do to me when I stand my Jesus’ solid rock when they are trying to abuse my God given rights?                                             

What can satan do to me when I stand firm and resist his temptation?

He is stronger than me but is he stronger than Jehovah? Because I am Jehovah’s child can he conquer me?

Satan is smarter than me but is he smarter than the Holy Spirit? Than because the Holy Spirit is my protector do you think satan can out con the Holy Spirit? Do you think the Holy Spirit will allow him to entrap me?    

Jehovah is the original super hero of which none can defeat. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Hoshe’ah ( The Lord Saves ) for saving me from the devil and his minions wicked schemes to destroy me. Thank you for providing the wisdom, grace and strength to defeat the wicked when they attack me. I exalt You in the name of the Warrior King whom shall one day defeat all wickedness 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

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.
