Are Opportunities to Prove

gods rescue

 So you see, the Lord knows how to rescue godly people from their trials, even while keeping the wicked under punishment until the day of final judgment. 2 Peter 2:9 New Living Translation

When I was a baby Christian I used to cry out to my Beloved:” Father, why are these terrible things happening to me?” I used to think I was being punished because of some wrong committed. Sometimes they were but most were not.

Now, a more mature Christian (Not fully mature mind you, that will only happen in Heaven) I ask: “ Lord what are You trying to teach me in these difficult circumstances (and yes, there is always a lesson to learn)? Or ‘Lord, if I have offended You please reveal to me that which displeases You and how to correct the situation.” However one thing that is always abundantly clear and for which there is great gratitude is the knowledge that He is walking through them with me and will deliver me in the appropriate time and in the appropriate manner.

“Trials are not enemies of faith but are opportunities to prove God’s faithfulness.” — Author Unknown

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ‘Uzam (The Lord is our Strength in Trouble) that no matter the trouble that comes my way, You will walk through them with me. Thank you Jehovah GELAH RAZ (God the Revealer of Mysteries ) for revealing so much to me through these experiences. I praise You in the name of He who suffered so much for me out of Divine love 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.

Only to Learn That

JESUS CAN

 They were shaken because He was indignant and angry. Psalm 18:7 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Many times in our walk with Christ we have the wrong foundations. Because of this our house is unstable and pron to destruction when affliction, trials, trouble and sorrows come unto us.

In order to prevent this from happening Jehovah must tear down those foundations.

Working in construction building houses I learned that everything must be lined up in building the foundation. If it does not the house is faulty and pron to demolishing when storms hit. That is why most houses built about a hundred years ago are still solid while new houses have so much problems. Those a hundred years ago built the houses to last so they took extra care in how they were built. Many today just slap houses together as cheaply as they can get away with to make profit. When they storms hit we see the end results of who was the better builder.

Jesus is the builder of our house (our spirits) and will not allow faulty construction of it. When we start to stray from the masters architects plans He shakes the house to reconstruct it.

He has shook many of my foundational beliefs to get rid of them because they were hampering my walk with Him. I praise Him for doing it.

“We turn to God for help when our foundations are shaking only to learn that it is God shaking them.” — Charles West

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Kanna (The Lord is Jealous) for being so jealous as to never allow another architect to alter the plans You have for this child’s building You so loving built. Thank you for destroying any layers which will cause this building to collapse into complete and total destruction. I praise You in the name of the master builder Jesus Christ. Amen

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

The Lord Knows

For the Lord knows and fully approves the way of the righteous, But the way of the wicked shall perish. Psalm 1:6 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

How many times have we all cried out unto Jehovah when we are going through trials and tribulations: “ My Beloved, do You not see what is happening, do You not care?”

Jehovah see’s things from the beginning to the end. Even though we may falsely believe He does not see or does not care, He is there. Many times He is quietly working through these circumstances in ways we do not see until the time of woe is past. We can however always take comfort that He loves us and will never desert us.

Only God knows three things: the beginning of things, the reason for things and the end of things. A Welsh Proverb

On the other hand there are the fools who believe Jehovah either does not see their wickedness, does not are about it or is helpless to do anything about it. They will learn otherwise when He brings the hammer down strongly upon them.

Just remember that although we do not know, He always knows. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Immanuel (God is with us) that You are always with me through both the good times and the bad.

Thank you that You love me and care about me.

Thank you that even though I do not see it oh so many times You are working quietly behind the scenes for the good of this child of Yours that You love so dearly.

Thank you that You will provide proper retribution to the wicked for their deeds.

I praise You in the name of He who is always there for me Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Why are Doubts Rising?

                        

And He said, “Why are you troubled, and why are doubts rising in your hearts?” Luke 24:38 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

There have been so many times when I called out to Jehovah when trouble was near (like where am I going to get rent money – He blessed me with a contract to more than pay for all bills and put some away for a rainy day- or what is going to happen to me when I retire- He spent three hours explaining to me through Bible verses that He was going to make sure I lived a comfortable life).

Some times the answer was quick and very affirmative.

Sometimes there was waiting. Through it all He was teaching me to have faith in Him.

Just remember this Christian: Jesus loves you, Jesus cares, Jesus is always there. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah El Roi. You are the God who sees for blessing me that You see all my trials and tribulations. Thank you that You take the appropriate action in Your wise time in Your wise way to lovingly help me resolve the problems. I exalt Thee in the name of He who helped so many when 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

Do Not Doubt My.

                                        

I have loved you just as the Father has loved Me; remain in My love [and do not doubt My love for you]. John 15:9 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

All of us who have walked the Christian walk have from time to time faced uncertainty whether Jesus loved us or even if He was real. As we mature we grow more and more assured of it.

Many times we go through intense trails and tribulations, sorrows and times of famine. We wonder whether Jesus has deserted us, whether we have angered Him and cry out to Him.

We are met with silence.

Or, so it seems.

When these events have passed and we reflect upon them we can see Jesus’ firm but gentle hand guiding us through them as well as providing provision during them.

It has occurred to me on numerous occasions and only caused my faith in Him to grow stronger and stronger.

“As sure as God puts His children in the furnace he will be in the furnace with them. Charles H Spurgeon

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Heseh (God is love) for blessing me with a Divine love which none other can compare. Thank you that You will never leave me nor desert me even when many times it seems as if You are absent from me. I praise You in the name of my ever present best friend Jesus Christ. Amen

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

We Should be Unafraid to Doubt.

                                           

But they were startled and terrified and thought that they were seeing a spirit.And He said,“Why are you troubled, and why are doubts rising in your hearts? Look at [the marks in] My hands and My feet [and see] that it is I Myself. Touch Me and see; a spirit does not have flesh and bones, as you see that I have.” Luke 24:37-39 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Think of it?

Here was the living breathing Christ standing before His disciples. They saw Him and heard Him yet still doubted it was Him.

Do you think that is absurd?

I do not. How would you feel if you were there?

There has been so many times in my Christian walk that have been filled with doubt. Sometimes it was the direction in which the Holy Spirit was leading me in service unto my Heavenly King, even though, it had been made bluntly clear to me.

There have been many times when enduring intense trials and tribulations I doubts Jehovahs strength to get me through it even though He made it point blankly blunt He was walking through it with me.

There having been numerous times when in spiritual or physical famine that I doubted Jehovahs providence for me even though there were countless experiences in the past to reflect upon to believe Him and to trust Him.

Now on the other side of it our faith in Him become more solidified in our hearts and minds.

Any Christian that says they have never doubted Jehovah is a flat out liar. Any Christian that tells you it is a sin to doubt Jehovah has never truly been put through the fire, they know not of what they are speaking.

“If ours is an examined faith, we should be unafraid to doubt….There is no believing without some doubting, and believing is all the stronger for understanding and resolving doubt.” Os Guinness

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Bara (The Lord Creator) for blessing me with Your loving patience during the times of doubt and for using these experiences to cement my faith ever stronger in You. You are such an awesome Father in Heaven to this child You love so much here on earth. I praise You in the name of He who never doubted You Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Three Things That Only God Knows

                                                                  

I do not know, [only] God knows. 2 Corinthians 12:2 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

There has been so many times when trials and tribulations have struck without warning in my life (matter of a fact almost all the time). I call out unto Jehovah and ask Him why I had no warning and why it was happening. He is silent. That is a good thing. He does not inform me because there would be terror in my heart at the foreordained knowledge of what was coming. He does not inform me because either He is in the process of molding me through this event or He is testing me through it.

He does not allow me to know how long it will last. There is good reason for that. If I knew how long it would last it may seem too long a time or I would become complacent in the knowledge that it will only last for a while.

So, when you are going through and difficulty and Jehovah is silent, there is a good reason for it.

No, He is not angry with you, although this may be an event to discipline you.

No, He has not deserted you, He loves you too much to ever desert you.

“There are three things that only God knows: the beginning of things, the cause of things and the end of things.” Welsh Proverb

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Tsidkenu (The Lord is Righteousness) for blessing me with events in my life that You have used to burn off the dross to create in me a righteous heart and life of dedication unto You. Thank you for not forewarning me of these events becasue they would be too terrible for me to grasp at the time. Thank you that through these events You strengthen my faith in You. I exalt Thee in the name of He who trusted You all the way to the cross Jesus Christ. Amen.

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