“If any of your lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to him.” James 1:5 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation
Please my Beloved Heavenly King Jesus send the Holy Spirit to remind me that I am Your free will servant in every aspect of my life.
Please bless me with a deep conviction to obey Your every command.
Please bless me with many opportunities to spend quiet time with You every day.
Please send the Holy Spirit to teach me Your live according to Your way with wisdom, grace, and steadfast duty to You.
I humbly request this in Your majestic name. 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. Joseph a son of Jehovah
Those members of the body which seem to be weaker are necessary. —1 Corinthians 12:22 New Living Translation.
Now if we are a family of Christ as Jehovah as our Father then there are big brothers and sisters and little brothers and sisters. The big brothers and sisters are the ones that have a deep understanding and experience with God. Their walk with God is strong. The babies are the new members of our family or the ones through no fault of their own are weak.
The big brothers and sisters should not be critical or haughty of the babies. They should nurture them, encourage them and be respectful towards them.
The more mature Christian is to be loving, patient, encouraging, and mentoring to those who are not as far along the walk to Heaven as themselves. Joseph a son of Jehovah
The babies should listen to and obey their big brothers and sisters. When they speak to them with love about areas in their life that needs to be corrected they should not be insulted or hurt by the actions.
If we all behaved like this in the churches the churches would not decrease. Many churches are losing members because of the mean spiritedness of other members. Those hypocritical members are judgmental and condescending to the babies in the family. The babies are hurt and give the middle finger to the church and walk away. Indeed how many new members of the family walk away from Jesus because of this? I tell you true, their blood will be on the guiltiest hands (yes blood. Because they walk away from Jesus because of you, you are the reason they are going to hell.).
How do you think that makes Jesus feel?
Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers. Galatians 6:10 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation
Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Heseh (God is love) for lovingly blessing me with the Holy Spirit to teach me and help me to be the child You desire me to be. Please bless me to emulate Him to come along side those who are not as mature in their walk with You as I am (that does not mean childish but rather inexperienced) and to lovingly guide them to a deeper loving, obedient relationship with You. Thank you for the big brothers and sisters whom You have sent to mentor me and may I emulate them as well. I sincerely request this in the name of the greatest Teacher Jesus Christ. Amen
May the gentle assurance of Jesus’ sweet love encompass you today and every day. Joseph a son of Jehovah
“Everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock.” (Matthew 7:24 The Holy Bible, New International Version)
Reading the Bible and then not applying its principals is like reading an instruction manual and then trying to build your project on your own without listening to the guidance provided in the manual.
Sounds pretty dumb huh?
But, on the other hand, incorporating the sacred knowledge in the hidden truths of the Bible will enable us to walk closer to God. It will be a life filled with good morals and a foundation of truth which to cement into our hearts.
“Making your ear attentive to wisdom and inclining your heart to understanding; yes, if you call out for insight and raise your voice for understanding, if you seek it like silver and search for it as for hidden treasures, then you will understand the fear of the Lord and find the knowledge of God.” (Proverbs 2:2-5 The Holy Bible, English Standard Version)
This will hold us in good stead when the violent crushing storms of life come crashing down around us (and the storms of life always come until our dying day)
James 1:22 says, “Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says” (The Holy Bible, New International Version).
After reading the Bible we need to request God to open our eyes in how to apply what we have learned into our daily lives.
” Remember, it is sin to know what you ought to do and then not do it.” James 4:17 (The Holy Bible, New Living Translation).
“Your word is a lamp to guide me and a light for my path” (Psalm 119:105 The Holy Bible, Good News Bible).
Guard my words as your most precious possession. Write them down and also keep them deep within your heart.” (Proverbs 7:2 The Holy Bible,The Living Bible)
We are to obey what the Holy Spirit teaches or we are wasting His time by being make believe Christians. Joseph a son of Jehovah
We are not to become Holy Rollers or Bible thumpers.
You know the type. They shove the Bible in your face and pound on it condemning you and demanding you follow THEIR version of the passages. All the while, they go about living as they please. Can you say the word hypocrite or bully?
Please don’t condemn yourselves with this destructive behavior. Not only will you drive others away from Jesus, but you will be found guilty of that heinous crime on judgment day. They are puffed up like a balloon.
Instead use the observations gained in a positive manner to lovingly enlighten those around you.
“Knowledge puffs up but love builds up”. 1 Corinthians 8:1(The Holy Bible, New International Version).
Prayer: Thank you El Deah (God of knowledge) for blessing me with enlightening me to Your light while refraining me from overindulging in knowledge while lacking in love. Thank you that Your guard me words so as to prevent me from suffering from foot in mouth disease. I extol You in the name of the supreme expert in these manners Jesus Christ. Amen
May the light of Christs love shine brightly in your heart today and every dayJoseph a son of Jehovah
One is by the Word. When we read the Bible every day Jesus will speak to us through its divine Word. For gaining wisdom and instruction; for understanding words of insight; for receiving instruction in prudent behavior, doing what is right and just and fair. Proverbs 1:1-3 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation
Speaking through others, it is usually friends or close family members. Maybe, it will be a brother or sisters at church.
As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another. Proverbs 27-17 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation
God speaks through the Holy Spirit. In the last days, God says, I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Acts 2-17 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation
For those who are led by the Spirit of God are the children of God. Romans 8:14 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation
In their hearts humans plan their course, but the LORD establishes their steps. Proverbs 16:9 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation The Spirit will guide you.
When you feel the Spirit telling you to go someplace it is for a reason. Maybe it is a hurting person who needs someone, maybe it is someone who has been praying for guidance.
The Holy Spirit speaks through our thoughts. When we have to make decisions the Holy Spirit will open our eyes to the words in the Bible. He speaks through circumstances.
He can speak to us through failures or success. In sickness or in healing.
The way to determine is to pray and read the Bible.
Speaking through dreams and visions. In the last days, God says, I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your young men will see visions, your old men will dream dreams. Acts 2- 17 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation
Instruct a wise man and he will be wiser still; teach a righteous man and he will add to his learning. Proverbs 9:9 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation
Jehovah is talking, are you listening? Joseph a son of Jehovah
Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Abba (God our Father) for blessing me with so many creative ways which always amaze me with our conversation. Thank you that in every way You speak so that I always understand. I laud You in the name of the Prince of truth Jesus Christ. Amen.
Christ blesses us with love, peace and joy. May you be blessed with many opportunities to share these with others today. Joseph a son of Jehovah
The LordsaysI will fight those who fight youIsaiah 49:25Holy Bible, New Living Translation
This is not just a promise to an ancient nation but unto every child that belongs unto Jehovah.
One thing I have noticed over the decades not just in my own life but also in the lives of our brothers and sisters in Christ is that it always seems like the wicked are winning when in a battle against us. Then just as it looks like certain defeat, Jehovah comes into the fray and we are delivered.
Oh, that does not mean we will go without our battle scars, but they are used to teach us and to strengthen us.
Sometimes it looks like the enemy has won and we move on in life but there comes a time when we encounter our foe again, it may be a few days later, it may be a few decades later but it is shocking to see how much of their lives has been destroyed through their wicked actions. I stand in awe and terror when witnessing Jehovahs hand of justice upon the wicked.
Jehovah fights fair and He always wins. Joseph a son of Jehovah
Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Gador Milchamah (The Lord is Mighty in Battle) for being the undefeatable protector of Your loving adoring child. Thank you for smack downing satan and his minions when they attack me. Thank you for turning my foes weapons against them to cause their self destruction. I praise You in the name of the conquering King of whom I am His worshiping servant King Jesus Christ. Amen
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
Let me know Your ways, O Lord; Teach me Your paths. Guide me in Your truth and teach me, For You are the God of my salvation; For You [and only You] I wait [expectantly] all the day long. Psalms 25: 4-5 Holy Bible Amplified Version
All the paths of the Lord are loving kindness and goodness and truth and faithfulness To those who keep His covenant and His testimonies. Psalms 25:10 Holy Bible Amplified Version
What is the path
There are numerous places in the Bible about following Jehovahs path.
What is it?
Where is it?
The path of Jehovah is that we are to emulate Him. As He has loving kindness towards us, we are to have towards others. We are to be kind and considerate towards others for no others reason than we care about them as Jehovah cares about us (that does not mean we are to allow them to abuse this kindness.).
As He is good towards us, we are to be good to others. As Jehovah is good to us, let us be good to others.
As He speaks the truth to us so to is our conversation to be honest with others. We are not to lie, manipulate or con others. That is disgusting filth in Jehovahs eyes. So is gossiping and saying mean, cruel hateful words.
As He is faithful with us so to are we to be faithful with others. We are to be faithful with our families. We are to care for elderly parents and help them as much as we can (if they have been abusive when we were young we can lovingly confront them about it in hopes of reconciliation. If they refuse, still be loving towards them with the hopes of future reconciliation until Jehovah directs us that that is enough and to walk always from them, which He does). We are to be faithful to our wives and husbands (the Godly marriage of one man, one woman, not the satanic filth of homosexuality) . We are to be faithful towards our employee’s and our employers.
Prayer: Please Jehovah Abba (Jehovah our Heavenly Father) bless me to emulate my big brother Jesus in all of my thoughts, words and actions so that they will bring You glory, honour and the little lost sheep. I am grateful that through the course of this we are drawn closer and closer into a Divine love affair that will last an eternity. I sincerely request this and thank you for this privilege in the name of my Beloved big brother Jesus Christ. Amen.
May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love fill your heart today and every day. Joseph a son of Jehovah
To You, O Lord, I lift up my soul.
O my God, in You I [have unwavering] trust [and I rely on You with steadfast confidence],
Do not let me be ashamed or my hope in You be disappointed;
Do not let my enemies triumph over me.
Indeed, none of those who [expectantly] wait for You will be ashamed;
Those who turn away from what is right and deal treacherously without cause will be ashamed (humiliated, embarrassed).Let me know Your ways, O Lord; Teach me Your paths. Guide me in Your truth and teach me, For You are the God of my salvation; For You [and only You] I wait [expectantly] all the day long.
Remember, O Lord, Your [tender] compassion and Your loving kindnesses, For they have been from of old.
Do not remember the sins of my youth or my transgressions;
According to Your loving kindness remember me, For Your goodness’ sake, O Lord. Good and upright is the Lord;
Therefore He instructs sinners in the way. He leads the humble in justice, And He teaches the humble His way.
All the paths of the Lord are loving kindness and goodness and truth and faithfulness To those who keep His covenant and His testimonies.
For Your name’s sake, O Lord, Pardon my wickedness and my guilt, for they are great. Who is the man who fears the Lord [with awe-inspired reverence and worships Him with submissive wonder]? He will teach him [through His word] in the way he should choose. His soul will dwell in prosperity and goodness, And his descendants will inherit the land.
The secret [of the wise counsel] of the Lord is for those who fear Him, And He will let them know His covenant and reveal to them [through His word] its [deep, inner] meaning.
My eyes are continually toward the Lord, For He will bring my feet out of the net. Turn to me [Lord] and be gracious to me, For I am alone and afflicted. The troubles of my heart are multiplied; Bring me out of my distresses. Look upon my affliction and my trouble, And forgive all my sins.
Look upon my enemies, for they are many; They hate me with cruel and violent hatred. Guard my soul and rescue me; Do not let me be ashamed or disappointed, For I have taken refuge in You. Let integrity and uprightness protect me, For I wait [expectantly] for You. Psalm 25 The Holy Bible Amplified Version
This pretty much describes my attitude and behaviour towards my all knowing, all delivering, all encouraging, all loving all forgiving incredible Heavenly Father, Supreme King and Wise Teacher.
Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Heseh (God is love) for being so loving towards me in that You always supply me with the right amount of what I need, when I need it. You are so amazing. I exalt You in the great name of He who always supplied His disciples 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.
And do not be conformed to this world [any longer with its superficial values and customs], but be transformed andprogressively changed [as you mature spiritually] by the renewing of your mind [focusing on godly values and ethical attitudes], so that you may prove [for yourselves] what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect [in His plan and purpose for you]. Romans 12:2 The Holy Bible Amplified Version
I see ads all the time to transform folks. Maybe it is their teeth or their skin to make them look more beautiful on the outside.
We all need a transformation.
But the one we need the most can only come from The Holy Spirit. And, that transformation of course is the transformation of our spirit (not our heart). This is not a one off transformation but a lifetime one. We will be constantly metamorphosing until we reach Heavens Gate. Even then, we will still be changing our hearts and minds under the tutelage of the Holy Spirit.
For me, Jehovah has moved in stages just like going to school. Once I have passed grade one then it will be time to move on to grade two. And so on and so on. In forty years I am just past grade four (talk about a slow learner huh?).
There is no failing just repeating the lesson in a different manner until it is ingrained in our mind and spirit. He is patient and teaches us at our own pace.
Attending Jehovah Divine school of Righteousness is a life time commitment. Our graduation ceremonies will take place in Heaven with Jesus Christ handing out the awards. Joseph a son of Jehovah
Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Rabbi (God our Teacher) for blessing me with the honour of being enrolled in the most prestigious school ever. Your school of holiness and righteousness. I apologize for the times I was a difficult student. Please bless me with Your ability to be such a magnificent teacher as You to those around me so they can be enrolled in Your awesome school as well. I humbly beseech You in the name of the greatest Teacher to ever bless this planet Jesus Christ. Amen
May Gods sunshine always bless you with brightening your day with His love, joy and peace. Joseph a son of Jehovah
The will of God will never take me,
Where the grace of God cannot keep me,
Where the arms of God cannot support me,
Where the riches of God cannot supply my needs,
Where the power of God cannot endow me.
The will of God will never take me,
Where the spirit of God cannot work through me,
Where the wisdom of God cannot teach me,
Where the army of God cannot protect me,
Where the hands of God cannot mold me.
The will of God will never take me,
Where the love of God cannot enfold me,
Where the mercies of God cannot sustain you,
Where the peace of God cannot calm your fears,
Where the authority of God cannot overrule for me.
The will of God will never take me,
Where the comfort of God cannot dry my tears,
Where the Word of God cannot feed me,
Where the miracles of God cannot be done for me,
Where the omnipresence of God cannot find me.
Being in the will of God is the best place to be in this life and the next. Joseph a son of Jehovah
Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ‘Immeku (The Lord Is With You) for taking me on the most incredible adventures there could ever be. I eagerly await the ultimate adventure that You will take on in the right time, the adventure of spending eternity with You. I praise You in the name of He who I intently anticipate guiding me around You Heavenly Home 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
