The Tragedy of Life

VOICE OF GOD

For I know that the Lord is great Psalm 135:5 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

The longer we walk with Christ, the more we get to know Him (although, we will never really get to know everything about Him because there is just too much of Him to ever have the time to learn it all).

The more we get to know Him the greater He becomes to us. This greatness it exhibited in His love, power, wisdom and provision of which there is none to compare. \

“The tragedy of life and of the world is not that men do not know God; the tragedy is that, knowing Him, they still insist on going their own way.” William Barclay  

Jehovah reveals Himself to us in many wonderful and awesome ways every day. Because of this revelation we should be drawn towards Him and the deeper the desire to obey Him. After all, it is because He loves us that He wants the best for us.

Therefore, should we not follow the advice of the all knowing God to direct every aspect of our lives?

The reason fools reject Jehovah is because of arrogance and greed. The advice Jehovah blesses them with does not suit what they selfishly desire in their lives so they foolishly reject it and arrogantly follow their own thoughts (which are influenced by the world around then and he who influences the world is satan) to attain what they greedily want. The end result of this pathetic attempt is a worthless life with a huge hole in their heart because that can only be filled with Jehovahs love (which He only blesses those who belong to Him with).

There is no such thing as atheist, there is only intentional idiots. Joseph a son of Jehovah      

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah GELAH RAZ (Revealer of Mysteries) for all of the amazing ways in which You reveal the mystery of You to me. It is truly awesome the manner in which You reveal Your majesty, wisdom, love and compassion. I exalt You in the name of Your awesome Son Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Fights Against It.

 

                                                                 

So now [if that is the case, then] it is no longer I who do it [the disobedient thing which I despise], but the sin [nature] which lives in me.  For I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my flesh [my human nature, my worldliness—my sinful capacity]. For the willingness [to do good] is present in me, but the doing of good is not. For the good that I want to do, I do not do, but I practice the very evil that I do not want. Romans 7:17-19 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

It is a constant battle.

Although we are Christians in spirit we are still flesh and blood with fleshly desires that fight against the spirit.

How many times have we spoken foolishly with words that hurt others (whether intentional or unintentional)?

How many times have we looked at someone and wanted to jump in the sack with them (yes women do it as well as men)?

How many times have we looked down on another because of their race, nationality or social standing?

These things are said to be natural and they are, for the flesh.

But as Christians we are to live super natural lives.

We cannot succeed on our own initiative.

Thankfully we have the ultimate superpower readily available to assist us. His name is the Holy Spirit.

I cannot count the number of times I call upon Him every day. It is so reassuring to know He is always there and deeply gratifying as well. He has prevented numerous disasters in my daily life.

Make a habit of always opening your mouth to Him first before you open it to someone else Always make a habit of running to Him before you run to your fleshly desires first. It prevents untold painful catastrophes

The true Christian hates sin, flees from it, fights against it, considers it his greatest plague, resents the burden of its presence, mourns when he falls under its influence, and longs to be completely delivered from it.”J.C. Ryle

Prayer: Please JehovahMa’oz (Lord my Fortress) bless me to always be able to take shelter in Your strong fortress when the enemy comes attacking my mine with destructive thought which are repugnant unto both You and I. Please bless me with the proper weapons to defeat the wicked foe when He comes slithering into my daily life so as to remain a righteous child of Yours. I humbly request this in the name of He who used Your Holy Scripture to defeat His foe in the wilderness 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

Treasure in Earthen Vessels

THE GOSPEL

 

But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellence of the power may be of God and not of us. 2 Corinthians 4:7 New King James Version

We are the earthen vessels and the power of God is the Holy Spirit who lives in us.

Therefore as Christians we shine forth Jehovah not us.

When we are Christians we have the ultimate superpower available to us, His name is The Holy Spirit.

When we endure trials and tribulations that would destroy ordinary men or women, the super power comes to help us.

When He does and those around us see it they are curious and want to know where this power came from. That is the opportune time to give witness to the power of God.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireh (God our provider) for blessing me with the ultimate power to help me, The Holy Spirit and may I use every opportunity to witness of Him, through You to others so that they may be drawn to Your holy family. I give thanks in the name of He whose sacrifice made it all possible Jesus Christ. Amen.

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