With Confidence and Without Fear.

 

Therefore let us [with privilege] approach the throne of grace [that is, the throne of God’s gracious favor] with confidence and without fear, so that we may receive mercy [for our failures] and find [His amazing] grace to help in time of need [an appropriate blessing, coming just at the right moment]. Hebrews 4:16 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

We approach Jehovahs throne with confidence not arrogance because we believe it is by Christs blood that we have the gift of grace which is forgiveness, that our filth is washed clean when we repent.

We also need to acknowledge our weaknesses and humbly, sincerely request The Holy Spirits assistance and strength to conquer them.

Jehovah will allow us to wrestle with our weaknesses until the point where they are going to defeat us and then come in like the cavalry. This is to teach us that we are too weak and in need of His Divine assistance. This teaches us to not only depend upon Him but to be grateful and respectful unto Him.

The end result is a deep love and admiration towards Him. Knowing our weaknesses we need to be aware of them and our circumstances.

We need to be aware of the danger of entering into a forbidden area because it will place us in the temptation zone which will overpower our weaknesses.

We need to discipline ourselves to avoid these places like the plague.

Discipline is incorporating what we have learned in the Holy Spirits Divine school into our daily lives. Joseph son of Jehovah.

So a alcoholic, when they become dry, need to be aware of certain streets that they cannot walk down because there is a liquor store there or a bar which will draw them into temptation.

Keep actively watching and praying that you may not come into temptation; the spirit is willing, but the body is weak. Matthew 26:41 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Prayer: Please Jehovah Chatsahi (The Lord is my Strength) bless me with Your Divine strength and wisdom to be able to conquer my weaknesses so as to not shame You the One I love the most. I humbly ask this in the name of He whose strength defeated satan on the cross Jesus Christ. Amen

May the gentle assurance of Jesus’ sweet love encompass you today and every day.

Stay focused

 

When daybreak came, Jesus left [Simon Peter’s house] and went to a secluded place; and the crowds were searching for Him, and [they] came to Him and tried to keep Him from leaving them. But He said, “I must preach [the good news of] the kingdom of God to the other cities also, because I was sent for this purpose.” Luke 4:42-44 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Many times in while serving our purpose to our Heavenly King things or folks will try (some unintentionally, some intentionally) to distract us from our service. They will entice us with material things like money, sex or power.

Do not heed them, these things are temporary and will be taken from you in the blink of an eye.

Every major task Jehovah has ordained me to be in service unto Him was met with a lot of distractions from others (sometimes it was the devil working through them, sometimes it was well meaning from them but they did not understand the calling and sometimes they were just jealous and spiteful and wanted me to fail) We are to stay focused.

The only way to accomplish this is to stay in continual communion with the Holy Spirit who will bless you with insight into the foolish distraction, the power to resist it and the way to escape it.

Many times it was extremely difficult to resist the temptation laid out before me and it was only by the power of the Holy Spirit that disaster was averted.

Many times what was laid out before me that looked like sweet cherries was actually bitter and sour lemons. I did not know that and would have fallen for the trap if not for the guidance of the Holy Spirit.

The only way to avoid satans trap is to stay on the road Jehovah requests that you walk upon. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Christ Rohi ( Jesus is our Divine Shepherd ) for blessing me with guiding this gullible sheep away from the wicked ones traps to deter me from service unto my cherished King and thank you for providing Divine guidance unto the paths of service unto You that You have ordained me to serve unto You. I praise You in You magnificent name. Amen

May the gentle assurance of Jesus’ sweet love encompass you today and every day.

Your strong impenetrable defense

No temptation [regardless of its source] has overtaken or enticed you that is not common to human experience [nor is any temptation unusual or beyond human resistance]; but God is faithful [to His word—He is compassionate and trustworthy], and He will not let you be tempted beyond your ability [to resist], but along with the temptation He [has in the past and is now and] will [always] provide the way out as well, so that you will be able to endure it [without yielding, and will overcome temptation with joy]. 1 Corinthians 10:13

Satan the greatest conner always make poo poo look like sugar. Then when you get addicted to it he tries to convince you that you are not strong enough to resist the temptation.

He is partly right.

Sometimes when temptation comes our way Jehovah will allow to endure it to see how much we have grown ( that is not so much for Him but to show us how weak our strength can be so we do not become arrogant). Sometimes He will deliver us from it to revel to us just how great He is.

The best defence is offence and the best offensive weapon is to know Bible verses and use them to defeat the not so great a deceiver.

“The history of every temptation, and of every sin, is the same; the outward object of attraction, the inward commotion of mind, the increase and triumph of passionate desires, ending in the degradation, slavery, and ruin of the soul.” Unknown

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Ganan (The Lord is Our Defense) for blessing me with Your strong impenetrable defense both in Your Divine word and with Your omnipotent presence to defeat the wily sneak satan when he craftily tempts me. I rejoice in this reassurance in the name of He who used the word to defeat the wicked one in the wilderness during His temptation Jesus Christ. Amen

May the gentle assurance of Jesus’ sweet love encompass you today and every day.

He Hears You.

O You who hear prayer. Psalm 65:2 New King James Version

When you pray you are not praying to a dead idol made of wood or metal or some make believe fellow like Santa Claus or to dead souls, like the saints. That is foolishness.

Instead with reverence, love and sincerity pray to the living God whose throne is in Heaven.

He hears your cry when suffering sorrow. He blesses you with answers that give reassurance and healing.

He hears your cry when you need help. He answers with protection and resources to conquer your adversary.

He hears your cry when you are alone and feel dejected. He blesses you with filling you with His Divine love, comfort and encouragement. He hears your cry when you need guidance in your life. He blesses you with resources and guidance councilors to show you the path you must take.

He hears your cry when you are remorseful He not only forgives you but guides you in the proper manner to reconcile with the one you have done wrong. This blesses you with peace in your spirit.

He hears your cry when you need to learn something. He blesses you with wise teachers and mentors that reveal the knowledge you need.    And of course it is with pure delight he hears your song of praise for His love. To Him that is the sweetest song that ever exists. Of course when we are in a loving relationship we delight in sharing with the one we love how much we love them.

He cherishes your prayer of thank you when He blesses you. That is the respectful thing to do is it not? When you help someone does it not feel good when they thank you? How much more than should we thank our Beloved Father in Heaven when He blesses us?

GOD LOVES YOU

You do not need to make an appointment and he is never too busy. Jehovah is always there, Jehovah always cares. Joseph- Anthony: Green

When you continuously continue in a weakness (like being short tempered) He does not become exasperated with you and give up on you. When you honesty are repentant and humbly ask for forgiveness He will forgive you and thousand times a thousand.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Heseh (God is love) for being such a loving Father to this cherished child of Yours. Thank you for Your blessings of Your Hoy love, strength, wisdom, comfort and encouragement as Your never end provisions. I praise You in the name of Your most special blessing Your Holy Son Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

How to Beat the Sneak.

Now when the devil had ended every temptation, he departed from Him until an opportune time. Luke 4:1 New King James Version

Satan is sneaky.

He does not charge into your mind, he is subtle and begins with just little thoughts. Then they become cemented into your mind and grow like cancer. Eventually they will consume you and you commit a sin.

To effectively defeat this creep use the best and only weapon available to you to soundly defeat him very time.

Carry a Bible verse with you constantly and when the scumbag comes just pull out that verse and with power and authority shove it tight down his throat. Then for the finale inform him that you belong to Jesus so just take a hike. Say it with conviction.

Thoughts become habits so surround yourself with Godly thoughts.

To accomplish this listen to sermons on sermonaudio.com (I like to listen to Allister Begg, A.W. Tozer and Spurgeon.) every day, read Christian devotionals like http://www.actsweb.org and Our Daily Bread listen to Christian radio like http://www.joyfmonline.org and http://www.praise1065.com.

THE LORD WILL ANSWER

Pray to Jesus to reveal to you your bad habits and the method of defeating them.

Sometimes they are too strong for you and can only be defeated by completely surrendering them to Jesus.

As well think of the things that are triggers and avoid them like the plague. So if you are an alcoholic you need to avoid your drinking buddies and do not even walk down the streets with the bars you used to hang out at.

That is what happened to me with my addiction to alcohol. It was too strong for me and the only way to defeat it was through completely surrendering it to Christ. It was defeated that instant.   That does not mean that satan does not still try his sneaky little tricks but I have the protection of the Holy Spirit to resist him.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Yeshua (God our protector) for the most powerful protection against the most devious liar and thief Lucifer. Your most awesome protection of this child that belongs to You has rescued me from the Highway to Hell and leads me on the difficult Pathway to Heaven. I in deep gratitude extol You in the name of my strong King who defeated our nemesis once and for all on the cross Jesus Christ . Amen.

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

Sometimes I fall into the Sewer.

GIVE THANK TO THE LORD WITH PRAISE

Look on my affliction and my pain, And forgive all my sins. Psalms 30:12  Psalm 25:18 New King James Version

 

Sometimes I fall into the sewer of sin. It is when I submit to temptation and get drunk.

 

Then Satan taunts me saying:” Look at you, you drunk. How can Jesus love such a loser as you?”

 

I am in tormenting agony with guilt and shame., because I have sinned against my beloved Jesus.

 

Jesus says “I love you unconditionally. When you repent, you are forgiven. We all have our weaknesses. That is why I sacrificed myself on the cross, to make you clean before God by my blood.”

 

A feeling of peace and joy dances in my heart. I sing songs of gratitude and love to Him.

 

Do not think I take my addiction lightly.

I fight it as hard as I can but sometimes the desire is more than I can bare even thought I fight it as hard as possible. By Gods grace, one day this wicked addiction shall be conquered.

Editors note One day while getting drunk I called out to Jesus :”Jesus, help me. This is too strong for me to fight and win. It is only by Your divine power that these chains will be smashed.” In that instant the desire was taken from me and for many years has never overtaken me again.

Whenever the temptation comes to me now I confidently exclaim “:Get away from me Satan. Jesus has conquered you and I belong to Him now. Come Holy Spirit and chase this filth from me.” and the desire is gone.

 

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Yeshua (God our deliverer) for rescuing me in the sewer of addiction so that You may use me in Your predestined service. I praise You in the name of he who cast out demons when he walked this earth Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

He is Sneaky.

SPIRITUAL STRENGTH

Watch and pray, lest you enter into temptation. The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.” Matthew 26:41 New King James Version

Satan is sneaky.

He does not destroy you all at once. He begins with little thoughts. They slowly grow like cancer. When they become cemented in your mind they lead to actions. These actions lead to destruction in the form of addictions, cheating and others.

So for example there is a beautiful woman at work. You catch a quick glance at her. You start thinking about her and become obsessed with her until you invite her out from a drink. The drink leads to a hotel room. The hotel room leads to an affair and then your marriage is destroyed.

The best defense is to memorize Bible Verses and have them written out and carry them with you. When the temptation comes, whip out the Bible verses and tell Satan to go take a hike while calling on Jesus to protect your mind.

Yes it is just as important to call upon Jesus.

Satan is smarter and stronger than you but is a wimp before Christ.   Joseph- Anthony: Green

Pray for Jesus to destroy your bad habits because they are too strong to defeat on your own.  I know. There was one in particular that had me enslaved.  I tired therapy, diet, hypnosis and my own strength. They all failed. When I completely surrendered it to Christ the chains that held me were instantly smashed and I have never returned to that habit since.

 

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Yeshua (God our rescuer) for delivering me from the destructive jaws of Satan and his minions. I thank you for this protection day by day, moment by moment. I with great gratitude give thanks for this magnificent blessing in the name of He who defeated Satan on the cross Jesus Christ. Amen.

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