Prayer Must Be

A PRAYING MAN        

 

Prayer is the communion of the regenerated soul with its Divine Parent.

Prayer is God’s own instituted means of obtaining blessings from Him, the Fountain of life.

Prayer must be sincere—we must really be desirous to obtain the blessings we ask.

Prayer must be holy—for if we “regard iniquity in our heart, the Lord will not hear us.”

Prayer must be pious—seeking to obtain blessings, not for our own gratification merely—but for God’s glory. Prayer is a relief and comfort to the troubled soul. Prayer must be importunate—for it is the effectual, fervent prayer of a righteous man, that prevails.

Prayer must be submissive—asking only for what it is God’s will to bestow. Prayer must be in love— love for our Heavenly Father and prayer for our fellow man, whether they be in Jehovahs Divine family or not. Prayer must be reverent—for our God is a consuming fire.

Prayer must be humble—for we are base, and sinful, and unworthy to lift up our eyes to heaven.

Prayer must be persevering—for men ought always to pray, and not to faint.

Prayer must be particular—for generalities mean little or nothing.

Prayer must be universal—entering into everything, all the concerns of life, all the means of grace.

Prayer must be of all kinds—social, domestic, private, spontaneous but never ritualized for that is a stench and insult to our Heavenly Beloved. Prayer must be grateful—abounding in thanksgiving.

Prayer must be expectant—waiting and watching for answers.

Prayer must be believing—we must ask in faith. Prayer must be consistent with the Word of God —we may ask for everything God has promised.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Immanuel (God is with us) for the ultimate treasure, the Your loving gift of communion with You through prayer. It is a precious jewel that I carry close to me, not just in our morning and evening conversations but those which we share throughout the day. I praise You in the name of He with whom I deeply desire to walk with and talk with every day Jesus Christ, my best friend. 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

A Thing to be Looked Through

                                           

 “The kingdom of heaven is like a [very precious] treasure hidden in a field, which a man found and hid again; then in his joy he goes and sells all he has and buys that field [securing the treasure for himself].” Matthew 13:4 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

How precious is it to you?

Is the Bible precious enough for you to turn off the TV and read its wise words instead of watching that trash on TV?

Is it precious enough for you to get up early in the morning to read instead of sleeping in?

Is it precious enough for you to take time to read its life giving pages instead of listening to that rubbish they call music?

Is it precious enough for you to give up reading the garbage on the internet?

Is it precious enough to give up time at the gym?

Think of what is most precious to you. If it is not the Bible and spending time reading it and discussing it with Jehovah than why do you call yourself a Christian?

“The Bible is like a telescope. If a man looks through his telescope, then he sees worlds beyond; but if he looks at his telescope, then he does not see anything but that. The Bible is a thing to be looked through, to see that which is beyond.” — Phillips Brooks

Prayer: Oh praise You Jehovah El Deah (God of knowledge) for enabling me the supreme honour of digesting the awesome words held with in the most esteemed book there every was, is or will be, Your Holy Bible.

They bless me with wisdom, strength, courage, healing, comfort and encouragement in my daily battle with the dark side.

They also enable me the most supreme esteem of growing every closer in a deep loving relationship with You, Jesus and the Holy Spirit.

Thank you my Heavenly love for this greatest of all exaltation in the name of my loving big brother Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Do Not Love The.

                                                      

Do not love the world [of sin that opposes God and His precepts], nor the things that are in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. 1 John 2:15 Holy Bible Amplified Version

In reality loving the world is just another word for loving self. That is such a waste of life. You will never find meaning, satisfaction, nor true love in this absurd endevour.

Being blessed with a loving relationship with Jehovah is an experience that is so delightful, satisfying, rewarding and Heavenly that there truly is no words to describe it. The more you ingrain Jehovah in every precept of your life, the closer you get to Him. This exhilarating relationship is preparing you for an eternal love affair with Him. There is nothing in the world that is equal to the amazing relationship.

Things of the world cannot love back. Christ’s love is the most satisfying and fulfilling love there is. Choose wisely. Joseph a son of Jehovah.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Abba (God our Father) for sanctifying me with the supreme privilege of being Your loved child. Please continue to nurture our mutually loving relationship as it is the most priceless treasure of all. I exalt Thee in the name of my Beloved big brother 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

The Greatest of Virtues

                                                        

For I am convinced [and continue to be convinced (beyond any doubt] that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present and threatening, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, will be able to separate us from the [unlimited] love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. The greatest of blessings is to be loved by He who cares about us and for us like no one else can or will. He is always there. He always cares. He always blesses us with the best guidance. He blesses us with daily spiritual, mental and physical blessings. And best of all there is no experience like that of being in communion with His loving presence. Romans 8:38-39The Holy Bible Amplified Version

There is no love that can compare to Jehovahs Divine love for us. It is truly a Heavenly treasure of which we are to be grateful for in our daily lives and will continuously praise Him for in His Heavenly home. It is my spiritual breath. I cannot go a day without praising Him with whom loves me untold more than I could ever reciprocate. He is truly awesome.

And Jesus replied to him,“‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ Matthew 22:37 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

There is nothing or no one worthy of equaling much less surpassing Jehovahs place in my heart.

As Christ is our King that makes us He free will servants.

I can find no vocation equal to worth nor value as that of serving my Heavenly King in whom I am so deeply in love with.

There is nothing more worthy of my time that contemplating Jehovah by reading books, listening to the old hymns, writing articles to assist others in there walk with Him and creating engaging photo’s to glorify Him.

“To love God is the greatest of virtues; to be loved by God is the greatest of blessings.” Portuguese Proverb

Virtue is described as a commendable quality or trait Is there anything more commendable than loving He whose love for us surpasses anything else?

Prayer; Oh glory, glory excelsis unto You my most reverent loving Father in Heaven for double blessing me. The first blessing is Your supreme infinite love for me which is my greatest treasure. The second blessing is the privilege of loving the most majestic loving Father there could ever be. In the name of Your lost loving son Jesus Christ I do respectfully praise You. Amen

May Gods sunshine always bless you with brightening your day with His love, joy and peace. Joseph a son of Jehovah

When Folks Concentrate On

                                        

 Delight yourself in the Lord, And He will give you the desires and petitions of your heart. Psalm 37:4 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

We see it constantly (especially in the western countries) where folks foolishly go so deep into debt they will never get out of it. The end result is a lot of discontentment in their lives because they are slaves unto consumerism (which is a cruel master). There is no peace in their lives because they are constantly worried about paying off their debt. There is no love in their hearts because they are angry they are so far in debt. There certainly is no joy in their live because they lament over their pitiful state. The end result of this is a lot of physical sickness like ulcers and mental health. As well the heavy load of constant stress wears out their immune system so they are easy prey for any and all diseases that come their way.

When we are delighted in our loving relationship with Jehovah we do not need material stimulation to appease us. Our desires are to expand our loving relationship with Him and with others. This results in a life filled with contentment, love, joy and peace. As well, those who delight in our Lord have fewer sickness than those not in our Heavenly family because of Jehovahs peace, love and joy that reigns in our hearts.

When folks concentrate on Heavenly desires rather than earthly desires there is a lot more contentment, peace, love and joy in their lives. Joseph son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireh ( God provides ) for bountiful blessings of Your Heavenly treasure in my life and in my heart. They are the truest treasure of all. I praise You in the name of the greatest blessed treasure of all Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Christ Says

                                       

Let each one give [thoughtfully and with purpose] just as he has decided in his heart, not grudgingly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver [and delights in the one whose heart is in his gift].2 Corinthians 9:7 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

I see so many that have houses yet rent lockers to shove their stuff in. Yet they are not satisfied in life.

I have seen many who walk all over everyone to get one inch ahead of the other fellow, yet there is no satisfaction in their live.

I see those who freely and generously give of their time, money and heart to the community. They are the most wealthy folks I have ever met.

If given the choice between the material or the spiritual riches, choose the spiritual. It has more satisfaction and lasts and eternity.

“The world says, The more you take, the more you have. Christ says, the more you give, the more you are.” Frederick Buechner

Prayer: Thank you Jeovah El Roi ( “God Who Sees”) for blessing me with bountiful opportunities to become wealthy beyond my wildest dreams. It is the most significant treasure of all and that is love for it is the truest treasure of all. Thank you that You see this adoring child of Yours spread this treasure lavishly upon others and in so doing give glory unto You who deserve it the most. In so doing it enriches both my body and spirit. Oh I give all glory unto You my Love. I exalt Thee in the name of the most loving treasure of all 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 Most Dangerous Thing.

 

                                        

For the love of money [that is, the greedy desire for it and the willingness to gain it unethically] is a root of all sorts of evil.1 Timothy 6:10 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

I have seen many try to reach the end of the rainbow and destroy their lives and those around them in the process. Of course we all know there is no pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. By the same terms there is never enough money for the greedy, they always want more and they do not care who they hurt in the process. The price they pay is a cold heart unto others and being loved by none in return. That is a sad trade off for things which cannot love you back.

As well, there is also the arrogance that comes from success. There is the attitude of I am a self made man, giving no credit unto Jehovah for the blessings. That is arrogant, rude, disrespectful and down right stupid.

A reason for this is because just as Jehovah has blessed you, so too can He take away the blessings in the blink of an eye. I have seen many in soup kitchens that at one time lived in mansions.

Success has ruined more people than failure.  It has been said that money is the most dangerous thing God can put into your trust.

Of the two, I choose Christ’s love over the love of dead material things which cannot love back. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Heseh (God is love) incredible blessing of sharing Your Divine love with me. This is indeed the greatest treasure of all. I exalt Thee in the name of He who emulated Your love for us while He walked amongst us Jesus Christ. Amen.

May Gods sunshine always bless you with brightening your day with His love, joy and peace. Joseph a son of Jehovah

I Ask For.

                                                       

 They followed vanity [that is, false gods, idols] and became vain (empty-headed). 2 Kings 17:15 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

The thing I have noticed and numerous studies have confirmed is that the more material wealth you have the more paranoid you become about losing, the less detached you are from reality. The more luxury you have the more you become a slave to the scam of big business.

Take for example the latest mobile phone that comes out from a certain company every year or so. Folks are demented enough to wait in long line to pay idiotic prices for a gadget that they are only going to through away next year anyway. Their lunatic reasoning is that if they do not have the latest they are a no body. That is vanity. The gadget or latest designer clothes are like a god to them and the idolize things rather than nurture love towards others.

For where your treasure is, there your heart [your wishes, your desires; that on which your life centers] will be also. Matthew 6:21 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

I on the other hand seek the truest most valuable treasure of all.

That is: a loving relationship with Jehovah. When we commune together my heart is filled with Divine love, which nothing can compare with.

There is an old saying: what goes around, comes around.

Because I am honest I look forward to what is coming my way.

I nurture a pure heart for what matters to Jehovah and am not swayed by the foolish gibberish spewed by those who are worshiped as Gods like TV certain celebrities. As such there is a lot of peace withing my heart that is only attained by being in the right relationship with Jehovah.

“I do not ask for a life of luxury, nor for material wealth. I ask for a joyful heart, an honest heart, a pure heart. A heart after Jehovah riches” Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Pryyand- God is my friend for blessing me with the most amazing loving friend ever possible. Thank you for blessing me with spiritual blessings that are the most prized of all gifts You have showered upon me. I exalt Thee in the name of the most beautiful jewel of them all Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Nothing Shall be Lost.

O Lord, God of Israel, there is no god like You in heaven or on the earth, keeping covenant and showing mercy and loving kindness to Your servants who walk before You [in obedience] with all their heart. 2 Chronicles 6:14 The Holy Bible, Amplifed Version

No matter how great or small it is always significant unto Jehovah even though it may seem insignificant to others.Indeed many times they do not even thank you. You may think giving up your seat for someone on the bus or other small acts of kindness goes un-noticed by others but Jehovah is smiling and proud of you.

Even though it may seem small and insignificant to you, Jehovah takes notice of it. You are storing up Heavenly treasures and indeed what goes around will come around. So as you do good unto others so too will good come back unto you when you require it.

I have seen and experienced this pattern numerous times in my life. Now do not do these thing looking for materialistic rewards but do them because they are an act of love towards Jehovah and because it is the right thing to do.

“Nothing shall be lost that is done for God or in obedience to Him.”  John Owen

Prayer: Please Jehovah Heseh (God is love) bless me with a heart of love towards others as You have a heart of love towards me. Please bless me with opportunities every day to exhibit the light of Your Holy love into this dark world. I humbly request this in the name of the light of the world Jesus Christ. Amen

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

No Man Can Fulfill His Calling.

                                            

Just as each one of you has received a special gift [a spiritual talent, an ability graciously given by God], employ it in serving one another as [is appropriate for] good stewards of God’s multi-faceted grace [faithfully using the diverse, varied gifts and abilities granted to Christians by God’s unmerited favor]. 1 Peter 4:10 Holy Bible, Amplified Version

I remember so many in my younger years bragging that they did not need anybody. They only lived for themselves. Now that they are older and in need of help there is no one to help them and they have no one to love them. They are depressed, lonely folks whose daily life is a living Hell of loneliness.

I have seen so many use their God given talents to help others. Now that they are older and in need of help they are surrounded with folks falling all over them helping them. Their is a contented life filled with love, joy and peace.

Jehovah has endowed each of us with a special talent that is to be used in the community. To neglect that talent or to use it for your own selfish ends is indeed a great sin in our Heavenly Fathers eyes. Those who neglect to use it for their God given purpose pay dearly for it in their elder years.

When you surround yourself with nobody but yourself you end up with nobody but yourself. Joseph a son of Jehovah.  

No man can compass the ends of life by drawing a little line around himself upon the ground. No man can fulfill his calling as a Christian by seeking the welfare of his wife and family only, for these are only a sort of greater self.” Charles Spurgeon

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireh ( God provides ) for blessing me with plentiful opportunities to enrich myself with the most precious treasure of all, those of the heart, every day. In doing so I know I am also enriching Your heart which enriches my heart all the more. I exalt Thee in the name of my greatest treasure Jesus Christ. Amen.

Wishing you A house full of sunshine, Hearts full of cheer, Love that grows deeper each day of the year. Welsh blessing
