Are Always Better Than

laugh at fools

Unfriendly people care only about themselves; they lash out at common sense. Fools have no interest in understanding; they only want to air their own opinions. Proverbs 18:1-2 New Living Translation

Man, don’t we see this on the TV and internet far too often (which why I am glad I have enough sense not to get involved.

In most arguments either one or both folks are closed minded. I am right and I refuse to let the facts get in the way of my belief. is their mantra. It is an exercise in frustration and futilely attempting to talk with them.

I always tell them: “There is only so much stupidity I can tolerate in a day and you have used up your max.” and then walk away.

The fools stand there and grin from eyeball to eyeball stupidly believing they have won the argument.

What gets me though is that when things go south real quick because the refuse to listen to the wise, rather than take responsibility for it, they blame the wise.

I have both experienced it and seen it. It left me standing there dumb founded at their idiocy.

And, here is the real kicker, the fools not only refuse to learn their lesson, they continue to go out and do the same thing again and again. It makes me wonder how they have lived so long. And, yes, the older generation is the worse for this behaviour.

“Discussions are always better than arguments because an argument is to find out who is right, and a discussion is to find what is right.”Unknown

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah El Deah (God of knowledge) for blessing me with the knowledge of when to walk away from fools whose favourite hobby is arguing. They are nothing but senseless thieves who rob me of peace. I thank you in the name of He who never tolerated fools when He ministered here on this planet Jesus Christ. Amen

May the light of Christs love shine brightly in your heart today and every day

Jehovahs Emotional Guidebook.

GODS GUIDEBOOK

 This is Jehovahs emotional guidebook.

I have changed the words to first person so it sounds as if Jehovah is talking with me. See how it sounds when it is read like He is talking with you personally.

When I am lonely, I meditate upon Hebrews 13:5 “I will never leave you nor forsake you.”

When fear envelopes me, I meditate upon Isaiah 41:10 “So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God.”

Whenever I feel weak, I meditate upon Philippians 4:13 “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”

Every time I am torn between following the ways of the world or the ways of the Lord, I meditate upon Proverbs 3:5-6 “I trust in the Lord with all my heart and lean not on my own understanding; in all my ways acknowledge him, and he will make my paths straight.”

Whenever I feel lost, I meditate upon Matthew 7:7 “When I ask it will be given to me; when I seek and I will find; when I knock and the door will be opened to me. For, everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened.”

Any time when I am confused in knowing God’s will for my life, I meditate upon Psalm 86:11 “Teach me your way, O Lord, and I will walk in your truth; give me an undivided heart.”

When I the flesh tempts me, I meditate upon 1 Peter 5:8 “Be self controlled and alert. My enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. Resist him, standing firm in the faith, because I know that your brothers throughout the world are undergoing the same kind of sufferings.”

Following these guidelines every day helps me to defeat the devil and his minions and brings a lot of peace to my day.  I listen to them on an mp4 every morning and evening to ingrain them in my mind.

Prayer: I thank you Jehovah KalEl (voice of God) for the numerous ways in which You speak to me. It always amazes me that You always know the proper words to say in the proper manner and in the proper time. I praise You in the name of He who spoke the most amazing words ever spoken Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Not Until We Have Become Humble and Teachable

follow your ways

 The [reverent] fear of the Lord is the beginning (the prerequisite, the absolute essential, the alphabet) of wisdom; A good understanding and a teachable heart are possessed by all those who do the will of the Lord; His praise endures forever. Psalm 111:10 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

To fear the Lord in this context means to respect Him.

There have been so many times in my life when I see someone new at a job doing something wrong or doing it in a difficult way. I try to teach them the correct way or an easier way and they look at me with contempt like they know so much more than me. That is very rude arrogant and disrespectful. The end result for them is of course disastrous.

So too it is with us.

When the Holy Spirit tries to teach us a better way at life and we arrogantly contemptuously ignore Him and do the exact opposite, not only is the result disastrous but it is arrogant and disrespectful towards Him. Not only must we listen to Jehovah when He speaks to us but we are to be obedient as well. We must admit and submit to His supreme intelligence over our feeble minuscule understanding. Otherwise, what is the sense of Him speaking with us?

“Not until we have become humble and teachable, standing in awe of God’s holiness and sovereignty…acknowledging our own littleness, distrusting our own thoughts, and willing to have our minds turned upside down, can divine wisdom become ours.” — J. I. Packer

Prayer: Please Jehovah Kal El (voice of God) bless me to always listen, understand and obey Your voice because I know You only want what is best for me because You love me and care about me. I sincerely request this in the name of He who always listened to His Heavenly Fathers voice Jesus Christ. AMEN

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

Will Guard Your

do not be afraid

 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:7 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

I have known a lot of war in my life.

The war of worry.

This plagues me with restless nights, bad health and nervous disposition. The only way to be victorious in this war is to lay it at the feet of my Beloved Heavenly Father. He sends the Holy Spirit to reassure me, comfort me and encourage me. He reminds me that everything is in His hands and that everything will work out for my good

The war of fear.

This battle leaves me timid and restless. The only way to be victorious in this war is to lay it at the feet of my Beloved Heavenly Father. He sends the Holy Spirit to reassure me, comfort me and encourage me. He reminds me that everything is in His hands and that He will always supply for my needs.

The war of anger and hatred (this includes jealousy).

This war boils the brain so it cannot function properly. It steals all joy and love from my soul. The only way to be victorious in this war is to lay it at the feet of my Beloved Heavenly Father. He sends the Holy Spirit to reassure me, comfort me and encourage me. He reminds me that the important thing to stay focused on is that those who unjustly inflict pain or sorrow on me shall be punished by His vengeful hand.

The war of loneliness.

The feeling of being unloved and all alone. A feeling so heavy it causes physical pain in my heart and great sobbing. The only way to be victorious in this war is to lay it at the feet of my Beloved Heavenly Father. He sends the Holy Spirit to reassure me, comfort me and encourage me. He reminds me that the important thing to stay focused on is that He loves me with a love that no other can compare with. That He is always with me and has a house built with love awaiting me in His Heavenly home.

The best security system there ever can be is the one wrapped up in Jehovahs loving arms. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Gador Milchamah (The Lord is Mighty in Battle) for providing me with the weapons to defeat satan in his battle against my mind and spirit. This unbeatable weapon of course is You Holy Love. I praise You in the name of my most precious lover Jesus Christ. Amen

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

To Live as He

CHIEF DUTY

 Not what I will, but what You will.”Mark 14:36 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

One aspect of prayer is requesting guidance in every aspect of our lives, both big and small.

When Jehovah answers these prayers and we are obedient to them we will live at His direction in our lives.

Many times it takes huge leaps of faith (trust) to be obedient to them because they do not make sense to us. Especially to those like me who are logical.

But our logic is finite compared to Jehovahs infinite logic. He sees things far into the future that we do not. He understands the implications far better that we do. It takes a lifetime to be confident in His direction even though sometimes it seems like nonsense to us. However when we do, we will live as we pray.

“He who prays as he ought will endeavour to live as he prays.” — John Owen

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah EL OHIM YAKOL (God, the Most Able) for enabling me to bring life and meaning to my prayers when You wisely answer in how to bring them to fruitation. I praise You in the name of He who answers all prayers Jesus Christ. AMEN.

May you be blessed with Jesus’ sweet love encompassing you today and every day. Joseph a son of Jehovah

In Such a Way That .

CHRIST FIRST, OTHERS SECOND

 Focusing our eyes on Jesus, who is the Author and Perfecter of faith [the first incentive for our belief and the One who brings our faith to maturity], who for the joy [of accomplishing the goal] set before Him endured the cross, disregarding the shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God [revealing His deity, His authority, and the completion of His work]. Hebrews 12:2 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Jesus demonstrated His love for us at a high cost. Knowing and understanding this should create an awe and deep love for Him. Yes we are to exhibit towards Him by understanding, however He requires that we pass along His style of love towards others as an act of worship towards Him.

Love is an action not an emotion. Joseph a son of Jehovah

We accomplish this in our attitude towards others by not being arrogant nor abusive towards them but rather by being caring and respectful.

We serve Jehovah by serving with in our community. We need not be a missionary in some foreign land when there are ample opportunities all around us every day.

Of course we require knowledge of how to serve, when to serve and where to serve. Doing this on our own will only lead to disaster. We need the supreme teacher to instruct us in the way to accomplish the deeds Jehovah has prepared for us to do.

Now there is no sense in teaching someone to fish if they will never us those skills or go fishing in the first place. When the Holy Spirit enlightens us we are to be obedient and put into practice that which He has indoctrinated into us.

“The knowledge of Christ’s love for us should cause us to love Him in such a way that it is demonstrated in our attitude, conduct, and commitment to serve God. Spiritual maturity is marked by spiritual knowledge being put into action.” Edward Bedore

Prayer:I humbly ask of You Holy Spirit my master teacher to constantly instill in this child of the most Divine Love appropriate words, actions and thoughts of love which will exhibit my appreciation for such and wonderful gift He has blessed me with. I sincerely request this in the name of He who showed us Your Divine love when He walked amongst us 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

It is Accomplished Through.

trust in God

 Now faith is the assurance (title deed, confirmation) of things hoped for (divinely guaranteed), and the evidence of things not seen [the conviction of their reality—faith comprehends as fact what cannot be experienced by the physical senses]. For by this [kind of] faith the men of old gained [divine] approval. By faith [that is, with an inherent trust and enduring confidence in the power, wisdom and goodness of God] we understand that the worlds (universe, ages) were framed and created [formed, put in order, and equipped for their intended purpose] by the word of God, so that what is seen was not made out of things which are visible. Hebrews 11:1-3 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Faith is not something that is instantly instilled in us when we become Christians. It is only accomplished through a lot of failure. We all fall face down in our walk with Christ.

Satan is a master at instilling doubts which is the murderer of faith.

When we fail the Holy Spirit gently picks us up and teaches us again to have faith. Then when the tempter comes again we are stronger to resist his wicked wiles. It is accomplished through a lot of experience. When our faith is tested, we need to reflect back on Jehovahs deliverance, strength, guidance and resources to achieve complete and total victory.

That is why we need not only to be patient with baby Christians but to use our experiences to encourage them. It is accomplished through a personal experience with the Holy Trinity.

Finally, there of course, can be no victory without a loving obedient relationship with the supreme power of all faith Jehovah, Jesus and the Holy Spirit. It is only through their blessing that have triumphant and powerful faith.

“I am inwardly fashioned for faith, not for fear.  Fear is not my native land; faith is.  I am so made that worry and anxiety are sand in the machinery of life; faith is the oil….  A Johns Hopkins University doctor says, ‘We do not know why it is that worriers die sooner than non-worriers, but that is a fact.’  But I who am simple of mind think I know;  We are inwardly constructed…for faith and not for fear.  God made us that way.  To live by worry is to live against reality.”Dr. Stanley Jones

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah El Roi (You are the God who sees) for blessing me that You see everything in advance so know the best path for me to take in life even when it does not make sense to me at the time. I exalt You in the name of He whose light guides me unto Heavens gate Jesus Christ. Amen

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