What is your problem?

 Don’t be afraid, for I am with you. Don’t be discouraged, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you. I will hold you up with my victorious right hand. Isaiah 41:10
The Holy Bible New Living Translation

What is your problem?

Is it fear?

Believe me, I have been there more times than I can count. The majority of times it was for nothing.

Fear is a lack of trust in Jehovah. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Being mere mortals we will always have moments of fear.

The difference is that those of us who have walked with Christ long enough know enough to conquer that fear by immediately praying unto Jesus and having the confidence He will take care of it for us. That does not mean that we will just sit back on out buts and wait for Him to do all the work.

Faith means that sometimes we sit back and allow Jehovah to work His will through the problem with the belief that He will take care of it. It also means that we are willing to follow His commands, even though, many times we do not see nor understand what He is doing.

At first this was a terrifying experience for me. Now, I just laugh a wait to see just how unusual a way He will resolve the issue (and in my life it is always in unusual ways).

Are you discouraged?

Boy have I traveled down that road with that heavy load on my back.

Again at first it is difficult to have faith that Jehovah will lift us up. Sometimes He allows us to endure through the experience to build our character up.

“Talents are best nurtured in solitude: character is best formed in the stormy billows of the world.” — Goethe

Sometimes, He lovingly comforts, encourages and strengthens us to continue on. Jehovah is always there to help us in the best manner for victory over the challenges of life. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Tsuri (Psalms 19:14 O LORD My Strength) for blessing me with the strength to continue on when I feel as if there is nothing left in me to give. Thank you for Your powerful strength to carry me when I am too exhausted to continue on. I praise You in the name of He who had the strength to endure the horrors of the cross for me, Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Jesus is My

 For since our friendship with God was restored by the death of his Son while we were still his enemies, we will certainly be saved through the life of his Son.  So now we can rejoice in our wonderful new relationship with God because our Lord Jesus Christ has made us friends of God. Romans 5:8-11 The Holy Bible New Living Translation

Jesus is my best friend as well as Jehovah They are the best friend anyone could ever have.

He is always there to talk with when problems arise (and because no one is wiser than Him, He always blesses us with the best advice).

He is there to comfort us when we are in sorrow, He understands because He experienced it here on earth when He walked among us.

He is there to warn us when danger lies ahead, He is better than any horoscope.

When someone tries to wage war against us, He is there to fight the battle for us or gives us the weapons to defeat our foes. He is there to share in our victories.

He is there to make us laugh, you have not really gotten to know Jesus until you have experienced His wonderful sense of humor.

He is there to share quiet times with us, those are the most special times for me.

The more we trust Jehovah the more we surrender to Him. The more we surrender to Him the deeper we fall in love with Him. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Pyrrand (God my best friend Romans 5:11) for blessing me with the best friend there could ever be. In the deepest gratitude I thank you in the name of my special friend 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

I am Not Afraid Of

I am not afraid of those that attack me, for the Lord my God will fight for me.’ Deuteronomy 3:22  The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

BE STILL

There has been so many times when I was bullied when a child it left me with little confidence.

The more Jehovah came into every being of my life the less fear there was of others and the more confidence there was in Him.

It did not happen all at once but took many decades of experience with Him. Especially with me, having a strong independent streak in me it was difficult to surrender the situation to Him.

Now, when situations arise where there is a threat from someone there is no fear in this child of His’ heart. There is complete trust that my Big Daddy in Heaven is bigger, stronger and much more resourceful that any that attempt to abuse me.

The more we mature in Jehovah the less fear we will have of others. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Gibbor Milchamah (Psalms 24:8 The LORD Mighty In Battle) that when ever someone unfairly attempts to abuse me You have taught me to step back and allow You to handle the situation. You are the smack down champion of the universe and beyond. I exalt You in the name of He who smacked satan down in the wilderness Jesus Christ. Amen May

Christ bless you with love, joy and peace today and every day. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Nothing is too Hard for Him.

 Jesus looked at them intently and said, “Humanly speaking, it is impossible. But with God everything is possible.Matthew 19:26 The Holy Bible The New Living Translation

Oh my awesome majestic King, You constantly amaze me with Your supreme prowess.

There have been countless situations where I am at wits end and know not where to turn nor what to do in oh so many difficult circumstances in my service unto You.

Then, I upon my knees, with rivers of tears streaming down my weary cheeks in desperation I call out to You for Your gracious Divine providence.

Then, You compassionately softly answer my prayer, You extinguish the searing sun of frustration boiling in my brain. You either take control of the situation and bring about solutions to these contentious issues or situations or, You guide me on how to resolve them myself. Sometimes, You help me with the resolution or sometimes You have trust in my competency and allow me to resolve them myself when You have kindly supplied me with the wisdom and tools needed for victory.

No matter which method You use my Love, I know Your gentle but firm hand extinguishes the scorching flames with in my mind and replaces them with soft gentle assurance that the situation is under Your control and because You love me, it will always work out for my good.

I thank You in the name of He who always took good care of those under His care (His disciples), Jesus Christ. Amen

THE LORD WILL ANSWER

When Trouble Comes

 The Lord is good, a strong refuge when trouble comes. He is close to those who trust in him. Nahum 1:7 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Those of us that have walked with Christ for a while know full well the difficulty in trusting in Him. There are times it seems as if there is nothing but trouble a woe in our lives. It seems as if the world is crushing down on us and we are going to explode. We cry out unto Jehovah but He is silent. This is the most difficult time to trust in Him. Even those of us that have walked the trail for a long time have at times difficulty trusting in Him during crushing crises.

JEHOVAHS CARE

That is okay though.

As long as we call out unto Him, trusting He will answer (and He always does).

For me I have experienced Jehovah delivering me from the tsunami of pain (mental, physical and spiritual) as well as being blessed with His presence during the tornadoes of life, when my life is being ripped apart by unemployment, destruction of relationships. One thing that is the same in each is His Spirit being with me through it all.

The Holy Spirit encourages, reassures and strengthens me through it all. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Elohim Machase Lanu (Psalms 62:8 GOD Our Refuge) for blessing me with Your impenetrable refuge from the fire storms of life that try to burn me to nothing through trials and temptations that come my way.                                                                                                               Thank you that You are my impenetrable refuge when the tsunamis of trouble and worry come crashing down upon me with little to no warning.                                                                            I praise You in the name of He who calmed the seas of trouble in His disciples lives Jesus Christ. Amen

May you be blessed with abundant joy in your heart filled with love and your life overflowing with laughter every day this year. Joseph a son of Jehovah

I Will Not Doubt

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take.” Proverbs 3:5-6 The Holy Bible, The New Living Testament

trust in God

I will not doubt, though all my ships at sea
Come drifting home with broken masts and sails;
I will believe the Hand which never fails
From seeming evil worketh good for me.
And though I weep because those sails are tattered,
Still will I cry, while my best hopes lie shattered;
I trust in You. I will not doubt, though all my prayers return
Unanswered from the still, white realm above;
I will believe it is an all-wise love
Which has refused these things for which I yearn.
And though at times I cannot keep from grieving,
Yet the pure ardor of my fixed believing
Undimmed shall burn.

I will not doubt, though sorrows fall like rain,
And troubles swarm like bees about a hive;
I will believe the heights for which I strive
Are only reached by anguish and by pain.
And though I groan and writhe beneath my crosses,
I yet shall see through my severest losses
The greater gain.

I will not doubt. Well anchored is this faith,
Like some staunch ship, my soul braves every gale;
So strong its courage that it will not quail
To breast the mighty unknown sea of death.
Oh, may I cry, though body parts with spirit,

I do not doubt, so listening worlds may hear it,
With my last breath.

No matter if everyone else deserts You, Jesus is the steady rock that You can always depend upon Joseph a son of Jehovah

You Need the Second and Third Part

NOT TRY, TRUST                         

You will keep in perfect peace all who trust in you, all whose thoughts are fixed on you! Isaiah 26:3 The Holy Bible The New Living Translation                      

You need the second and third part before you are blessed with the first part.  

The next time you are experiencing any problem begin with the third part. The third part is where your thoughts are fixed upon Jehovah. Reflect back on past experiences where He has come to your help. Thank Him for those blessings.  

Then comes the second part. After meditating upon the third part, put your complete and total trust in Jehovah to come to assist you with what ever problem you are encountering.

Sometimes, most times, this will require action on your behalf. He will not solve your problem alone. You have to put some effort into it as well. Some times He will resolve the problem for you with no action required upon your behalf.     

When you do this you will be blessed with the first part, which is peace.

Trusting anyone other than Jesus is living in a fools paradise. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Please Jehovah Ori (Psalms 27:1 The LORD My Light) blaze Your divine light into my soul and spirit to always follow the path that is lighted before me by Your brilliance. I humbly beseech You in Your magnificent name. Amen May

Christ bless you with love, joy and peace today and every day. Joseph a son of Jehovah

That was Going to Sink.

He saw that they were in serious trouble, rowing hard and struggling against the wind and waves. About three o’clock in the morning Jesus came toward them, walking on the water. He intended to go past them, but when they saw him walking on the water, they cried out in terror, thinking he was a ghost. They were all terrified when they saw him. But Jesus spoke to them at once. “Don’t be afraid,” he said. “Take courage! I am here!”  Then he climbed into the boat, and the wind stopped. Mark 6:45-52 The  Holy Bible, The New Living Testament Version

Do you notice Jesus was walking on the very water that was going to sink His Disciples?

He has dominion and power over everything, including your problems, worries and heartaches.

Did you notice when Jesus entered the boat the waves subsided.

So too will your worries, and heartache subside when Jesus enters into your situation. You must call upon Him in faith ( which means trust) that He will help you. Not only that, but, you must be obedient unto the advice He gives you in order to conquer the problem, worry or heartache.

Jesus is the best rescuer in the universe and beyond. Joseph a son of Jehovah

GOD IS IN THE FURNACE WITH US

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Yasha (Lord my Savior) Isaiah 49:26 that whenever I am obedient unto Your wise advice, You rescue me from all trouble, sorrows and snares.                                        I praise You in the name of He whose blood rescued me from eternal damnation Jesus Christ. Amen May you be blessed with peace and joy every day. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Good That Goes with Bad.

 The Lord also keeps safe those who suffer. He is a safe place in times of trouble. Those who know Your name will put their trust in You. For You, O Lord, have never left alone those who look for You. Psalm 9:9-10 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

There is always good that goes with bad.

Look at the virus that is snaking around the world right now. Yes it is causing a lot of sickness and death. But, it is also contributing to a lot of good.

Look at how many families are spending time together like they did forty years ago.

Look at how folks are looking out for each other in their communities.

Look at how folks are coming together in creative ways in their church to keep together.

Look at how many folks are having time to read their Bibles, for some, maybe the first time in their life.

Look at how many folks are taking walks on nature trails which is good for their mental, physical and spiritual health.

And, most important of all is look at how many folks are spending quality time with Jehovah, perhaps for the first time in their lives.

It is in the difficult times we come the closest to Jesus. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Immeka (Judges 6:12 The LORD Is with You ) for walking with me through these difficult times.                                                                                                                            May you use me to encourage others and help others under Your guidence as You have helped and encouraged me.                                                                                                                                                I apologize that it took at catastrophe like this for me to come and spend time with You.                             I thank you in the name of He who always fulfills His promise to never leave me nor desert me, Jesus Christ. Amen         

    JEHOVAHS CARE                                                                                                                                                                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.
