The Godly Are Bettered By

WE ARE PURIFIED

Through Him we also have access by faith into this [remarkable state of] grace in which we [firmly and safely and securely] stand. Let us rejoice in our hope and the confident assurance of [experiencing and enjoying] the glory of [our great] God [the manifestation of His excellence and power]. And not only this, but [with joy] let us exult in our sufferings and rejoice in our hardships, knowing that hardship (distress, pressure, trouble) produces patient endurance; and endurance, proven character (spiritual maturity); and proven character, hope and confident assurance [of eternal salvation]. Romans 5:2-4 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

It is in the hard times we learn the most and mature the most as we are guided by the Holy Spirit. We do not become bitter and self pitying like those in the world. Rather, we rejoice in them afterwards because we can see Jehovahs strong, secure hand leading us through them.

It is in our sufferings that Jehovah reveals the most of His love and healing which draws us ever closer to Him which is the only way for that to occur. We do not pout and play the blame game like those in the world because we understand that it occurred for our betterment.

Each of these brings stronger confidence in our loving Heavenly Fathers providence in every part of our lives. Because we are His children we always have access to Him and He is never too busy for us but takes an active role in our lives.

For these blessings we should continually praise Him and rejoice over Him continually every day.

When we know that the angel of death shall come a calling (and I believe that Jehovah always alerts us that our time will soon be up, even though we do not know the hour or the day. This is because of what has been witnessed in the palliative care in hospitals and volunteering in seniors homes) Jehovah shall cause us to reflect back on our walk with Him and blesses us with assurance of the Heavenly home that is awaiting us.

As the wicked are hurt by the best things, so the godly are bettered by the worst.” — William Jenkyn

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ‘Uzam (The Lord is our Strength in Trouble) for strengthening me, comforting me and encouraging me through lo the many trials, tribulations and sorrows that have come my way in my walk with You. I would never had made it without You gentle strong hand supporting me. I praise You in the name of He who strengthened the weak as He walked amongst us 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

Hold On to It

GOD IS IN THE FURNACE WITH US

Do not let your heart be troubled (afraid, cowardly). Believe [confidently] in God and trust in Him, [have faith, hold on to it, rely on it, keep going and] believe also in Me. John 14 1 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Many times when in times of trouble, sorrow or worry I held on to Christs strong, loving hand like a man holding onto the rescuers hand as he hauls me out of a swift raging river that threatens to engulf me. He always pulled me through.

Many times when Christ, my King took this servant of His to worlds unknown it was extremely terrifying. Yet, there was His strong hand gently in mine guiding me through it.

It has taken decades to learn and trust my Savior no matter what comes my way because of the knowledge and faith that His hand is in mine and He will never let me go.

Whatever comes your way always pray first unto our loving, caring Heavenly King for reassurance of His presence through this trauma. He will bless you with peace, and assurance that He is there with you. He is walking with you through every event both good and bad.

Today, why not heart feltly thank Him for the times He has been with you in the past (both that you knew of and the times He was there that you were not even aware of) as His gentle strong hand led you through all of your difficult times.

If you are going through difficult times now, call out to Him and rest in His strong but gentle loving bosom.

Jesus is always there, Jesus always cares. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ‘Uzam (The Lord is our Strength in Trouble) for blessing me with Your strong gentle hand being in my feeble hand as we walked together through all of my difficult times both great and small. I am eternally grateful for this gracious loving gift. I praise You in the name of He who encouraged and strengthen His disciples as He walked with them, Jesus Christ. Amen

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

He Starts With an Impossibility.

wild-tulips-growing-in-the-shade-alond-a-gentle-stream

But He said, “The things that are impossible with people are possible with God.” Luke 18:27 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

In every major event of my growth in my walk with Christ it was always preceded by a extreme difficult time in my life. Each time the Lord was speaking to me to take a huge leap of faith in what He wanted me to do and where He wanted me to go. In obedience unto Him He orchestrated life changing alteration to my persona. Each procession involved taking what seemed like an impossible task. It was extremely challenging and painful, however in reflection I praise Him every day for His infinite wisdom, assistance, comfort and strength.

So, when, or if Jehovah is now, asking you to take that leap of faith it is strongly recommended that you step out into the unknown because it is there that He shall bless you with making Himself known to you.

“When God is about to do something great, he starts with a difficulty. When he is about to do something truly magnificent, he starts with an impossibility.” — Armin Gesswein

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ‘Uzam (The Lord is our Strength in Trouble) for Your grace in using my troubles and woes to accomplish amazing feats in my life to bring glory, honour and the little lost sheep unto You. I praise You in the name of He who astounded those around Him with His fantastic grace Jesus Christ. Amen

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

It is Your Choice.

BURN LIKE THE SUN

Wisdom shouts in the street,
She raises her voice in the markets;
She calls out at the head of the noisy streets [where large crowds gather];
At the entrance of the city gates she speaks her words:
How long, O naive ones [you who are easily misled], will you love being simple-minded and undiscerning? How long will scoffers [who ridicule and deride] delight in scoffing, How long will fools [who obstinately mock truth] hate knowledge?
If you will turn and pay attention to my rebuke, Behold, I [Wisdom] will pour out my spirit on you;
I will make my words known to you.
Because I called and you refused [to answer],
I stretched out my hand and no one has paid attention [to my offer];
And you treated all my counsel as nothing
And would not accept my reprimand, I also will laugh at your disaster; I will mock when your dread 
and panic come,
When your dread 
and panic come like a storm, And your disaster comes like a whirlwind, When anxiety and distress come upon you [as retribution].
Then they will call upon me (Wisdom), but I will not answer;
They will seek me eagerly but they will not find me, Because they hated knowledge
And did not choose the fear of the 
Lord [that is, obeying Him with reverence and awe-filled respect],
They would not accept my counsel,
And they spurned all my rebuke.
Therefore they shall eat of the fruit of their own [wicked] way And be satiated with [the penalty of] their own devices.
For the turning away of the naive will kill them, And the careless ease of [self-righteous] fools will destroy them.
But whoever listens to me (Wisdom) will live securely and in confident trust
And will be at ease, without fear 
or dread of evil.” Proverbs 1:20-33 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Listen to and obey Jehovah now or receive His terrible rewards later. It is your choice. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: I humbly beseech You Jehovah Abba (God our Father) please bless me to always be in harmony with Your word. To do so is rewarded with magnificent closeness with You and prevents heaps of anguish, trouble and sorrow in my life. I praise You in the name of He who I love to walk with and talk with every day, my wise big brother Jesus Christ. Amen

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

 

Only Increases in Value. Happy [blessed, considered fortunate, to be admired] is the man who finds [skillful and godly] wisdom,
And the man who gains understanding 
and insight [learning from God’s word and life’s experiences],
For wisdom’s profit is better than the profit of silver, And her gain is better than fine gold.
   Proverbs 3:13-14 The Holy Bible Amplified Version I have met many fools with pockets full of money. I have many so called guinuses in the stock moarket. I have met many who consider themselves experts at life. Interestingly enough they all fail in their lives. That is because they arrogantly depend upon themsleves instead of Jehovah for guidence. This transends every generation not just the young crowd. I have met many that would be considered paupers in the worlds standards but are some of the wisest folks I have ever met. I eagerly anticipated sitting at their feet and drinking in their incredible wisdom. One thing they all had in common was that they never took credit for themselves but alawys gave the glory where it belongs, unto Jehovah. Wisdoms value never diminishes but only increases in value when it comes from Jehovahs treasure house of knowledge. Joseph a son of Jehovah Prayer: Glory glory excelsis unto You my Beloved Heavenly Teacher for blessing me with Divine wisdom in every perpective of my life. I esteem this treasure above all other and thank You for this blessing in the name of the most wonderful councillor Jesus Christ. Amen May the gentle assurance of Jesus’ sweet love encompass you today and every day. Joseph a son of Jehovah

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

It is Impossible for That.

The hearing ear and the seeing eye, The [omnipotent] Lord has made both of them. Proverbs 20:12 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

The difference between the world and us Christians is that when the hard times come those in the world cry out unto their gods and it is impossible for them to help them.

If you worship money how much good will it do you when your health is plagued by and incurable disease?

If you worship your car how much good will that do you when you encounter personal problems?

If you worship your body how much good will that do you when you are unemployed with no money?

The list goes on.

On the other hand, we who belong unto Christ have the assurance that He always see’s us when we are enduring a crisis and He always hears us when we call out unto Him. He has unlimited resources to help us where no one or nothing else can.

“It is impossible for that man to despair who remembers that his Helper is omnipotent.” — Jeremy Taylor

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ‘Uzam (The Lord is our Strength in Trouble) for blessing me with Your Divine strength, help, comfort and assurance during the hard times that come my way. It is the only thing that gets me through them but it is also the only blessing required at those times.

I exalt Thee in the name of He who was there to strengthen His disciples 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

Following After Their

                 

First of all, know [without any doubt] that mockers will come in the last days with their mocking, following after their own human desires. 2 Peter 3:3 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

It is becoming more and more prevalent every day (especially in the west) that folks will worship anything and anyone rather than Christ. We see it with sports teams, musicians, movie stars. We see it with so called new age. We see it with the homosexual community.

At the same time we see it becoming more and more severe how these same creatures viciously mock true Christians. We see how they vilify us with every opportunity.

Instead of feeling pressured or picked on consider it pure joy when anyone mocks you for being a Christian. That is a badge of honour. It also means time is running short and soon we will be with our Beloved in Heaven.

When the wicked mock and persecute the righteous you know you must walking the right path. Joseph a son of Jehovah

“Blessed [comforted by inner peace and God’s love] are those who are persecuted for doing that which is morally right, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven [both now and forever]. Matthew 5:10 The Holy Bible Amplified Version
Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ‘Uzam (The Lord is our Strength in Trouble) for blessing me with Your all powerful strength to endure hardships for being a loved child of Your. I praise You in the name of He who was persecuted all the way to the cross for walking in harmony with 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
