Even When He is Silent.

 Believe in the Lord your God, and you will be able to stand firm.2 Chronicles 20:20 Holy Bible, New Living Translation

There has been so many times in my life when Jehovah was silent.

Yes in every one of the occurrences He was testing me. Testing my faith in Him.

He made me a promise, would I hold true faith in Him that the promise would come true even when it seemed as if everything was going the opposite way in which He promised?

Testing my patience. He promised that certain events would occur yet for what seemed like the longest time (a couple of years) there was no action and the opposite of what was promised was happening and I was suffering because of it.

In each instance I cried and cried out to Him yet He was silent.

I thought He was angry with me yet He remained silent. I stood firm in my Beloved even when it seemed He was either silent or indeed working against me. In the end in every situation He held true to His word.

So, if Jehovah is silent, take heart. He is not angry with you and will never desert you. Have faith child, have faith. Victory is your in Jehovahs time, in Jehovahs way.

  “I believe in the sun even if it isn’t shining. I believe in love even when I am alone. I believe in God even when He is silent.” — Author Unknown

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Emunah (God is faithful) for blessing me with teaching that even though there are times when You are silent, You have not deserted me and are working a wondrous victory for me and are maturing this child of Yours. I exalt You in the name of He who worked amazing deeds even when others though He was silent Jesus Christ. Amen

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

It is Impossible for a Christian

A STOUT HEART

This is why we work hard and continue to struggle, for our hope is in the living God. 1 Timothy 4:10 Holy Bible, New Living Translation

It is impossible for a Christian to give up. We all work hard at being acceptable children to our Heavenly Father.

Yes there are going to be constant struggles.

Christianity is one war that continues until we reach Heavens gate. Just when one battle is finished and we rest a little another one begins. So many times we feel exhausted and defeated. We desire to give it all up and walk away. But, as Christians when we go before our Heavenly Father, He blesses us with strength, wisdom and the weapons to continue the fight. The longer we are in this battle the stronger our hope is in our Heavenly Father.

Now hope here is not the same as hoping to win the lottery. Rather it means confidence in Our Heavenly Fathers care, provision and deliverance and the eternal Heavenly home He has prepared for us.

“God never promises to remove us from our struggles. He does promise, however, to change the way we look at them.” — Max Lucado

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ‘Ori (the Lord is my Light) for enlightening me with Divine insight into the reason for the constant battles that must be fought on a daily basis in every Christians life ( including mine). This gift encourages me on when all seems lost to victory which glorifies You. I joyously praise You in the name of He whose empty grave brought eternal victory to oh so many. 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.

Using these Effective Christian Weapons

 Whoever pursues righteousness and unfailing love will find life. Proverbs 21:21 New Living Translation

There was a comical saying in the seventies that said the devil made me do it, in reference to why we do bad things.

That is a lie.

The devil tempts us but it is in our own free will that knowingly, willingly commit the sin.

When temptation comes our way we should use the Christian weapons Jehovah supplies us with for victory.

Number one on the list is common sense. The number one rule is that if you are single, or married never be alone with anyone of the opposite sex (unless they are your husband or wife). You can be alone in the library or in a restaurant but never in a place where there is no one else there.

Number two is if Jesus would not be there neither should you be. So if your buddies are doing drugs or going to the bar to pick up babes (or hunks if they are women) do you think Jesus would join them for that activity?

Number three is to memorize victory verses so when the devil temps you like he did Jesus in the wilderness we, like Jesus use Bible verses to defeat our opponent. And yes that is very effective from personal experience.

Number four is to have a close relationship with Jehovah so that when the temptation is too strong for you, your first defence will be to call upon our mighty Heavenly Daddy who will come to our rescue. Again speaking from personal experience this is very effective. Using these effective Christian weapons will bring life to us that is close to our Heavenly Father and oh what a marvellous life that is.

“Only he who flings himself upward when the pull comes to drag him down, can hope to break the force of temptation. Temptation may be an invitation to hell, but much more is it an opportunity to reach heaven. At the moment of temptation, sin and righteousness are both very near the Christian; but, of the two, the latter is the nearer.” — Charles H. Brent

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Chereb (Lord the is my Sword) for blessing me with the ultimate weapon to defeat satan and his minions with that is always victorious. I exalt You in the name of the unbeatable warrior King Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Removing Obstacles that Block Your Way

 Every man did what was right in his own eyes. Judges 17:6 Holy Bible, Amplified Version

That sounds a lot like today.

When you study history it is like a never ending circle.

First folks join together and work as a community and are respectful towards Jehovah. Then, when they begin to prosper they forget Jehovah. Because they forget Jehovah they have no spiritual guidance and fall into a very degenerative lifestyle which ultimately destroys their society.

Read the Book of Judges in the Bible and then study any history you want, European, Asian, Middle East, African. They are all the same.

Trust in and rely confidently on the Lord with all your heart And do not rely on your own insight or understanding. In all your ways know and acknowledge and recognize Him, And He will make your paths straight and smooth [removing obstacles that block your way]. Proverbs 3:5-6 Holy Bible, Amplified Version

Now this is the wise man and womans choice of life. We trust in Jehovah more and more as we get closer and closer to Him in a loving obedient life. For some it comes quickly but for most of us it takes decades to develop this trust (it is not Jehovahs fault nor ours. Being humans it takes time to develop this lifestyle). He never leads us wrong. We rely upon Jehovah for our daily portion of spiritual, mental and physical nourishment. He always supplies us. Because we are human our intellect is inferior to Jehovahs. The wise man and woman rely upon Him for guidance. He leads us away from disaster and towards victory.

I acknowledge Him to others when they ask why I live the way I do. I know with all my heart He loves me so therefore He only wants what is best for me.

The more time we spend with our Beloved, the more we are in tune with His voice and recognize it over the sly serpent (satan). The result of this is a fulfilling life of love, peace, joy, purpose and meaning. What more could one ask for in life? Trust Jehovah, He will never lead you wrong. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Emet (God of truth) for always being honest with me in guiding me down the proper path to take in life. It has prevented a lot of unnecessary hardship, sorrow and pain. I venerate You in the name of my Divine Heavenly Sheppard Jesus Christ. Amen

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

It Changes Me.

CONTINUAL CONVERSATION

  Rejoice always and delight in your faith; be unceasing and persistent in prayer; in every situation [no matter what the circumstances] be thankful and continually give thanks to God; for this is the will of God for you in Christ Jesus. 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Being persistent means to make it a habit.

Make it a habit to commune with our Beloved first thing in the morning.

Make it a habit to commune with Him through out the day.

Make it a habit to commune with Him before bed.

Make Him your choicest companion in which you share all of your hurts and dreams. Share with Him in your victory and defeats.

In each of these thank Jehovah. Thank Him that He listens to you.

Thank Him that He cares about you.

Thank Him that He always wants what is best for you (this is especially important in our defeats and when His answer for our dreams are not answered in the way in which we desire).

Have faith in His providence that He only wants what is best for you even when it does not seem like it to you.

Prayer does not change things but rather it changes me. Sincere prayer opens us up to Holy communion with our Beloved Father in Heaven. As we commune with Him our prayers are less self centred (gimme, gimme, gimme) and more Christ centred (Lord I desire to be like You.) and more personal, like a conversation between two loving friends. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Pyyrand (Jesus my best friend) for blessing me with the Holy Spirit to teach me the proper manner in which to converse with You and to make it the most joyful habit I have. I Your wonderful name I pray. Amen.

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

Lived Out in Me.

NOT TRY, TRUST

 The apostles said to the Lord, “Increase our faith [our ability to confidently trust in God and in His power].”Luke 17:5 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

There is a reason we need to humbly request the Lord to increase our faith.

The number one reason is because as we increase our faith (which means trust) in our Beloved we get to know Him ,love Him and worship Him more and more thereby getting ever closer to Him.

The number two reason is that when our faith increases so too does our confidence in the Lord whenever satan comes a knocking. Having confidence in the Lord terrifies satan and his minions. Number three is because when others observe our faith it is a great witness to the power of Christ. This is a powerful witnessing tool.

Show me the way, Lord, let my light shine As an example of good to mankind; Help them to see the patterns of Thee, Shining in beauty, lived out in me. —Neuer

Mind you, we cannot increase our faith without suffering but in the aftermath of our sufferings we are every deeper in gratitude for Jehovahs loving providence. This brings us closer to Him not just on special occasion but in beautiful daily communion with Him. What a blessing that is.

“God delights to increase the faith of his children. We ought, instead of wanting no trials before victory, no exercise for patience, to be willing to take them from God’s hands as a means. Trials, obstacles, difficulties, and sometimes defeats, are the very food of faith.” — George Müller

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Emunah (God is faithful) for being faithful unto this loving child of Yours that You have delivered the right amount of trials and tribulations, sorrows and pain to bring me ever closer to You in faith, understanding and love. I exalt You in the name of He who suffered these in extremes all the to and including 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.

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
