The Formula for Success in Life.

 Your godliness will lead you forward,  and the glory of the Lord will protect you from behind. Isaiah 58:8 Holy Bible New Living Translation

Here is the formula for success in life.

Godliness means to imitate Jehovah. It means to conform your life to the laws and wishes of Jehovah. Gods Law (Jehovahs Law) is this:

Do not do unto others as you would not like them to do unto you. This is the criminal law but sometimes you can do things unto others that is not criminal in the government courts but is violating the Law in Jehovahs courts. For example it is not against the law to cue jump but it is in Jehovahs court.

Do unto others as you would wish them to do unto you. In government court you are not obligated to help someone but you are duty bound (which is an act of love) in Jehovahs court. So for example, your elderly neighbour cannot shovel snow from their driveway in the winter or cut their grass in the summer. You are not obligated under government law to help them but you are duty bound (which is an act of love) by Jehovahs to help them.

Love others as much as Jehovah loves you and see how meaningful and fulfilling your life is. Joseph a son of Jehovah When you do this, Jehovah always has your back and will always take care of you.

Prayer: Please Jehovah Emunah (God is faithful) direct my words and actions to emulate You in all of my thoughts, words and deeds so as to glorify You and to guide the lost unto Your loving arms. I genuinely implore You in the name of He who perfectly emulated You 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

We Should Rejoice That

God loves each of

How  also are Your thoughts to me, O God! Psalm 139:17 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Imagine that, the God of the universe has constant thoughts of how precious we are to Him.

He is not like some fairy tale santa claus who will only bring us gifts if we are nice (which is like bribery) once a year. Gifts we will soon grow bored with a forget them.

Jehovahs thoughts are how much He loves us. Because He loves us so tremendously He only wants what is best for us. It is therefore in our best interests to be obedient to His guidance. We should rejoice that we have such an amazing loving God.  

Rejoice in the Lord always [delight, take pleasure in Him] Philippians 4:4 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireh ( God provides ) for always providing just the right amount for me. Not too much so I become a lazy, arrogant glutton. Not too little that I undertake disastrous endeavours. The added benefit of this is that by depending upon You I see Your loving gracious hand in my life that would not be possible any other way. This fills me with awe, love, respect and admiration for You. I praise You in the name of He whose blood made this Heavenly relationship possible Jesus Christ. Amen

Christ blesses us with love, peace and joy. May you be blessed with many opportunities to share these with others today.

We Are the Work of His Hand.

BECAUSE OF MY FAITH

O Lord, You are our Father; We are the clay, and You our potter; And all we are the work of Your hand. Isaiah 64:8 New King James Version

As Christians we are constantly put on the potters wheel. We are the work of His hand.

Now from my experience first you must go through the furnace of affliction and then the potters wheel.

 

The furnace of affliction is the most difficult and painful time of a Christians life. This is where Jehovah allows circumstances to happen that will burn off your bad attributes.

For me it was stubbornness, unforgiveness and spitefulness. It was a slow process that took two years.

 

Once this was accomplished then and only then was I put on the potters wheel. It is a process that lasts a lifetime.

 

Sometimes with clay there are parts of it that are very hard and must be pounded to make it soft and moldable.

 

So too it is with us.

Here are times when we are stubborn and difficult. In those times the Lord will allow difficult times to come to us to pound out that stubbornness and make us moldable again.

“We must allow the Word of God to confront us, to disturb our security, to undermine our complacency and to overthrow our patterns of thought and behavior.” John Stott

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Elohim (God our maker) for the painful experience of burning off the dross. Thank you for sticking with it in molding this lumpy piece of clay into the vessel You desire me to be. I extoll You in the name of the greatest molder of them all Jesus Christ. Amen.                                                                                                             

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