Depend Upon His Strength To

Be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Ephesians 6:10 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

To be strong in the Lord means to make Him your power source.

Depend upon His strength to get you through the day when you feel like you do not have the strength to blow your nose.

Depend upon His power to stand up and speak with wisdom and grace when you see or hear something morally wrong.

Depend upon His power when someone is annoying you so bad you want to strangle them.

Depend upon His strength when you see someone intentionally doing something that will hurt them and they ignore your warning. Especially, if this is a repeated habit ( I have learned to just walk away and tell them their is a reward for their arrogance and stupidity . I do not want to see the disaster or hear them blame everyone but themselves ).

Depend upon His strength and power when temptation is overwhelming you.

Can you think of any other times to call upon the Lord?

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Elohe Mauzi (Psalms 43:2 GOD of My Strength ) for blessing me with Your Divine power and strength to stand up and defend the weak and to defeat the tempter. I praise You in the name of He who had the strength to suffer on that bloody cross and the power to resist the tempter, Jesus Christ. Amen

May you have a grateful heart towards He who has given so much to you. indeovi vas ( may you live with Jesus in Latin )

Seleh- stop and think about it.

Flee From Those That

[We must] pray constantly for His enabling grace to say no to temptation, of choosing to take all practical steps to avoid known areas of temptation and flee from those that surprise us.

Lessons Satan Taught Me

For we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places. Ephesians 6:12 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

I have found satan constantly torments me when I am swimming laps.

I do three different types of strokes for fifteen minutes each.

He constantly torments me that I am too tiered, the time is too long, my body is too old to do these anymore. You almost did fifteen minutes why not quit now.

I persist in continuing and at the end feel pretty good about the accomplishment.

If satan constantly torments me in the pool, think of how much he torments each of us in our daily walk with Jesus and to just slack off a little bit here and there or not bother with this or that as Christ is directing us. We can put it off or quit early.

I do not believe The Holy Spirit will help us but that we must make the commitment ourselves to be obedient unto Christ rather than the world.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Immeka (Judges 6:12 The LORD Is with You ) for blessing me with The Holy Spirit to encourage me to succeed while satan it tormenting me to surrender in defeat. I praise You in the name of He who defeated satan on the cross, Jesus Christ.

AmenSeleh- stop and think about it.

I Will Refuse To

I will be careful to live a blameless life— when will you come to help me? I will lead a life of integrity in my own home. I will refuse to look at anything vile and vulgar. I hate all who deal crookedly; I will have nothing to do with them. I will reject perverse ideas and stay away from every evil. I will not tolerate people who slander their neighbors. I will not endure conceit and pride. Psalms 101: 2-5 The Holy Bible The New Living Translation

Although it is impossible to live a blameless life we are to request every morning for The Holy Spirit to help us accomplish this task as best as we can.

Living a life integrity in your home is the best witness for Christ there is for the entire family.

For your children you are the best role model ( certainly better than most of the perverts they call teachers in schools today ).

For your wife you will be an example to follow. She will respect, love and appreciate you.

For your husband you shall be a woman He respects, admires and appreciates.

The temptations to look at porno today is very enticing but leads to empty fantasies never coming true and can become a destructive addiction in your life. You will start to look at the opposite sex like a piece of meat to satisfy your hunger instead of someone you want to share your life with.

Personally I look at the scammers and thieves like a piece of pig dung on a hot sidewalk. Stay away from them or else they will lead you down a destructive path of being used and using others. There will be no love, only emptiness and looking over your shoulder to watch out that someone is not out to scam you.

Those who like to slander others are full of pride and enjoy causing misery towards others. If they gossip about others to you, think of what they will say about you when you are not there. That is why I do not waste my time with gossipers. Joseph- Anthony a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Elohe Tsadeki (Psalms 4:1 GOD of My Righteousness ) for blessing me with The Holy Spirit to teach me and help me live a life of Righteous integrity. I praise You in the name of the most dignified one of all, Jesus Christ. Amen

They Will be Ashamed That

Then my enemies will see that the Lord is on my side. They will be ashamed that they taunted me, saying, “So where is the Lord that God of yours?” With my own eyes I will see their downfall;  they will be trampled like mud in the streets. Micah 7:10 The Holy Bible The New Century Version

There have been so many times when I stood against the crowd on righteous principals. In every one of those times I was viciously mocked by the crowd. It seemed as if the whole world was against me.

This was not a one off experience but sometimes lasted every day for months.

The temptation to give in to the crowd was huge a times.

That is when I prayed for The Holy Spirit to bless me with the strength and courage to not back down.

Numerous times I was not vindicated right then and there but I was always vindicated and rejoiced at not giving in to the pressure.

You may not be vindicated today but in Christ’s time you will see that standing upon the rock of the Bible was worth it. You will also see your tormentors face Divine retribution. Joseph- Anthony a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Makkeh (Ezekiel 7:9 The LORD that Smiteth ) for mercilessly destroying my wicked tormentor while delivering just punishment to them for the pain and misery they inflicted upon me. I praise You in the name of The Supreme Judge, Jesus Christ. Amen

He has Prepared A

In fact, if they had been thinking of the land that they had left, they would have had opportunity to return. But as it is, they aspire to a better land, that is, a heavenly one. Therefore, God is not ashamed to be called their God, for he has prepared a city for them. Hebrews 11:15–16 The Holy Bible The New Century Version

When we accept Jesus as our Saviour we leave the old life behind and begin being transformed by The Holy Spirit into the character of Christ.

This is not a one off experience but a lifetime commitment. It is not easy nor is it intended to be. Only those who make the disciple of daily living in Christ and for Christ will succeed.

Many times when the going gets tough or it gets boring or it looks like you are missing out on the fun, the scammer, satan, will come and entice you to walk away from Jesus and back into his domain by bringing up memories of the good ol days.

Do not dwell there because that is the lure and if you bits it you will be hooked into going back there. The only result of that is certain disaster in this life and eternal damnation it the next.

When you are a Christian do not look back on “the good ol days “ because it will entice you to return there. Besides, if they were so good why did you leave them to become a Christian. Joseph- Anthony a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah El Deah ( God of knowledge. Romans 11:33 ) for blessing me with the knowledge that the present and future with You far out shines the “ good ol days.” I praise You in the name of He with whom I look forward to sharing the biggest hug with as He welcomes me home, my best friend, Jesus Christ. Amen

Keep Your Servant Also From

Keep your servant also from wilful sins; may they not rule over me (Psalm 19:13 The Holy Bible The New International Version .

Do you notice these are wilful sins?

I believe these are going to places that have specif temptation to entice us to give in to an addiction.

For example, there are two stores I cannot go into in town because they sell booze and I am a biological alcoholic. The same as there are certain streets that cannot be travelled for the same reasons.

We all have our weaknesses like porno or food or booze or any other numerous ones.

We need the guidance of The Holy Spirit to help us conquer them. Or else they become a habit and those are difficult to break and can destroy your life.

I have seen many take satans bait and foolishly believe they can play with fire and not get burned. Yes, the conclusion is always the same, guess who loses?

Do not fall for the trap that it is fun or you have to do it to fit in with the crowd ( then you are in the wrong crowd ) or one time will not hurt. History is full of ones whose life has been destroyed by these foolish beliefs.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Elohim Ozer Li (Psalms 54:4 GOD My Helper ) for helping me avoid places and situations that would provide too much and too strong an attraction to sin in my weakness. I praise You in the name of He whose example strengthens me, Jesus Christ. Amen

May I suggest we Christians start voting for politicians that have Christian morals like The Christian Heritage Party for the election here in Ontario Canada. Our rights and freedoms depend upon it.

When My Heart Was

When my heart was sad and I was angry,I was senseless and stupid.I acted like an animal toward you. Psalms 73:21-22 The Holy Bible The New International Version

When we see the wicked enjoying life while we suffer we are all tempted to ask why and have a pity party. We get angry with Jehovah and ask why do they prosper while they cheat us?

What have we done to deserve this?

We ask why they are getting away with it.

We walk around with clouds of doom hanging around our heads.

These suck the joy out of our lives.

It is only when we get on our knees and talk it out with Jehovah that He reveals the truth to us and fills us with His love that we see His love and kindness towards us. Then we are filled with love, joy and respect towards our Heavenly Poppa.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Rophe (Exodus 15:26) – The LORD our Healer ) for sending The Holy Spirit to come to me and talk with me. He chases the dark clouds away that are replaced by Divine love, joy and respect for you. I exalt You in the name of He whose praises I love to sing,Jesus Christ .Amen

Has Gone Through Suffering and Testing

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, The New Living Translation

Many folks feel it is senseless to come to Christ with our worries, hurts and problems because He is the big god in Heaven and does not care about mere mortals.

Yes He does.

There is not one crisis that you encounter that Christ has not been through.

He experienced the death of a good friend, was betrayed by another. He experienced homelessness and hunger. He was rejected by loved ones and was hated by the politically correct, even though He was trying to help them. He helped so many yet so few thanked Him. Even then, it was outsiders that thanked Him and not those in His national family ( the Jews ) . And of course, let us not forget the temptation in the wilderness when He was weak, hungry and exhausted.

No matter the situation, Jesus has been there, Jesus cares and when you depend upon Him, He will guide you through them all. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: It is with the greatest gratitude that I thank you Jesus Immanuel (God is with us John 15:1-27 ) that You have suffered like we do and so much more. Because of this, who better to run to when lifes tragedies come crashing down upon us.

Thank You.

Thank you for always being there.

Thank you for Your gentle, soft reassurance during these difficult times.

Thank you for Your encouragement, strength and guidance in resolving these catastrophes.

It is in Your magnificent loving name I exalt You. Amen May you always run to the loving arms of Christ when calamity comes a crashing through your door. Joseph a son of Jehovah T

Thank you Jehovah Tsidkenu

I will be careful to live a blameless life— when will you come to help me? I will lead a life of integrity in my own home. Psalms 101:2 The Holy Bible, The New Living Testament

Integrity: adherence to moral and ethical principles; soundness of moral character; honesty.

To me home represents the heart.

Every day I pray for the Holy Spirit to help me speak and behave like my idol Jesus Christ in all I say and in all I do.

Society says that righteousness is like shifting sand. It is open to interpretation. What is right for you may not be right for me but I will respect your right to live like that. What an idiotic way to have a disfunctioning society, which is what we see today.

A Christian says they will stand upon the principals that Jehovah teaches us through His Word, the Bible. He brings this enlightenment to us through the mentoring of the Holy Spirit.

Now of course satan and by extension society, will try anything to destroy that with temptations of lust, political correctness, which is satanic, and suffering because we will not surrender our Godliness morals.

We of course have an undefeatable super weapon to help us live a victorious Godly life. His name is the Holy Spirit and He is just a call away when we request our Heavenly Poppa sent Him to help us.

But people who aren’t spiritual can’t receive these truths from God’s Spirit. It all sounds foolish to them and they can’t understand it, for only those who are spiritual can understand what the Spirit means. 1 Corinthians 2:14 The Holy Bible, The New Living Testament

“He said not: “Thou shalt not be tempted: Thou shalt not be travailed:|Thou shalt not be afflicted.”But he said:”Thou shalt not be overcome.”” Julian of Norwich

God’s way is perfect. All the Lord’s promises prove true. He is a shield for all who look to him for protection. Psalm 18:30 The Holy Bible, The New Living Testament

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Tsidkenu (The Lord is Righteousness I Corinthians 1:30 ) for blessing me with sending the Holy Spirit to mentor me to live a righteous life and the strength and perseverance to do so every day. I praise You in the name of the most Righteous of all Jesus Christ. Amen

May you be blessed with plenty of learning opportunities at the feet of the best mentor, The Holy Spirit. Joseph a son of Jehovah
