The Lord is good to those who depend on him to those who search for him. So it is good to wait quietly for salvation from the Lord. Lamentations 3: 25-26 The Holy Bible, New Living Translation
Yes, there are conditions.
Many believe Jehovah freely gives His blessings to everyone.
That is a lie.
Why would He give His blessings to anyone who rejects Him?
Why would He give His blessings to any who abuse and or murder His cherished children?
Why would He give His blessings to those who stubbornly refuse to obey Him?
When a woman gets pregnant today, will she give birth tomorrow?
Than we need to have patience and faith in our Heavenly Father that when He says He will do it, it will be done. But, it will be done in His time, in His manner, not ours.
Patience is a virtue which can only be received by the Holy Spirit to those who walk with Christ. Joseph a son of Jehovah
Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireh ( God provides ) for blessing me with your opening of Heavens treasure to share with us Your adoring children. Please bless me with patience as I await Your cherished gifts to me in Your way and in Your time. I exalt You in the name of the most precious gift You have shared with me Jesus Christ. Amen
Whatever is beautiful, whatever is meaningful, whatever brings you joy, may you be blessed with an abundance of it this every day this year.
Do not hide from relatives who need your help. Isaiah 58:7 New Living Translation
This is something that needs to be done so much in todays society.
In the winter time instead of playing sports or playing video games go over and shovel grannies sidewalk and driveway for her in the winter. Cut her grass for her in the summer, rake the leaves for her in the fall. Take her grocery shopping, help with the housework.
If you see someone has problems with money, especially the younger ones, help them make a budget.
If a relative is having homework problems spend time with them and help them.
If someone is having personal problems sit and listen to them and share your experiences with them to help them.
Now that does not give them carte blanche to abuse you like continuously free loading off of you because they spend their money foolishly or refuse to get a job because they are lazy. That is hurting them and preventing them from maturing.
And, being a Christian, everyone that is a Christian is a member of the family.
It is the Christian duty (which is an act of love) to help those who are in need of help (and not waste time nor resources on those who are too lazy to help themselves). Joseph a son of Jehovah
Prayer: Please Jehovah ELOHIM YAKOL (God, the Most Able) bless me to be able to distinguish between those in need and those who are leeches. Please bless me with the time, resources and skill to help those in need to not only alleviate their needs but to bring them ever closer to You. I virtuously implore You in the name of He who has enabled me to receive the keys to Heavens Gate Jesus Christ. Amen
May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love fill your heart today and every day. Joseph a son of Jehovah
For I am convinced [and continue to be convinced (beyond any doubt] that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present and threatening, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, will be able to separate us from the [unlimited] love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. The greatest of blessings is to be loved by He who cares about us and for us like no one else can or will. He is always there. He always cares. He always blesses us with the best guidance. He blesses us with daily spiritual, mental and physical blessings. And best of all there is no experience like that of being in communion with His loving presence. Romans 8:38-39The Holy Bible Amplified Version
There is no love that can compare to Jehovahs Divine love for us. It is truly a Heavenly treasure of which we are to be grateful for in our daily lives and will continuously praise Him for in His Heavenly home. It is my spiritual breath. I cannot go a day without praising Him with whom loves me untold more than I could ever reciprocate. He is truly awesome.
And Jesus replied to him,“‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ Matthew 22:37 The Holy Bible Amplified Version
There is nothing or no one worthy of equaling much less surpassing Jehovahs place in my heart.
As Christ is our King that makes us He free will servants.
I can find no vocation equal to worth nor value as that of serving my Heavenly King in whom I am so deeply in love with.
There is nothing more worthy of my time that contemplating Jehovah by reading books, listening to the old hymns, writing articles to assist others in there walk with Him and creating engaging photo’s to glorify Him.
“To love God is the greatest of virtues; to be loved by God is the greatest of blessings.” Portuguese Proverb
Virtue is described as a commendable quality or trait Is there anything more commendable than loving He whose love for us surpasses anything else?
Prayer; Oh glory, glory excelsis unto You my most reverent loving Father in Heaven for double blessing me. The first blessing is Your supreme infinite love for me which is my greatest treasure. The second blessing is the privilege of loving the most majestic loving Father there could ever be. In the name of Your lost loving son Jesus Christ I do respectfully praise You. Amen
May Gods sunshine always bless you with brightening your day with His love, joy and peace. Joseph a son of Jehovah
For the time will come when people will not tolerate sound doctrine and accurate instruction [that challenges them with God’s truth]; but wanting to have their ears tickled [with something pleasing], they will accumulate for themselves [many] teachers [one after another, chosen] to satisfy their own desires and to support the errors they hold.2 Timothy 4:3 The Holy Bible Amplified Version
We do not live in a free society in the west anymore.
So many have turned their backs upon Jehovah and refuse to listen to Him. Indeed they are very offended by righteous morals. Yes there is absolute right and absolute wrong and it can only be found in the Bible.
We see law after law suppressing our rights to appease wicked men and women. In society today we see very little of good morals (it is all about me and it is not my fault is todays mantra).
We have a legal system but not a justice system.
There is no moderation it is buy, buy, buy. All the time going deeper into debt and becoming slaves to the big banks.
There is no frugality today. No one saves for the hard times and then cries for the government or mom or dads ATM to rescue them.
We see everybody screaming about how they have their rights but few talking about how they have their responsibility.
Be fare warned.
History does repeat itself.
Look at the past to see what is coming our way real soon.
Do not forget that the roaring twenties was preceded by the dirty thirties. Look at what has happened in every society when they became liberal and what happened to them (hint, it was not pretty nor pleasurable).
“Bad men cannot make good citizens. It is impossible that a nation of infidels or idolaters should be a nation of freemen. It is when a people forget God that tyrants forge their chains. A vitiated state of morals, a corrupted public conscience, is incompatible with freedom. No free government, or the blessings of liberty, can be preserved to any people but by a firm adherence to justice, moderation, temperance, frugality, and virtue; and by a frequent recurrence to fundamental principles” Patrick Henry
Prayer: Please Jehovah KalEl (voice of God) bless me to be a voice into this sewer of filthy sin that premeats our society today to bring them into Your Holy government which is the Supreme government. I humbly request this in the name of He who is the Righteous King of all governments Jesus Christ. Amen.
Wishing you A house full of sunshine, Hearts full of cheer, Love that grows deeper each day of the year. Welsh blessing
Gratitude is described as acknowledgement of having received something good from another.
Yes we are to know that Jehovah made us and not being insulting idiots and believe that we are descended from monkeys. We are to recognize which means we are to have a clear understanding that we are a Divine creation.
To me that fills me with gratitude and meaning.
After all, how many folks go around and wonder why they are here?
I know why I am here. I was created to be blessed with a Divine loving relationship with our Heavenly Father. I am His and He is mine.
In gratitude I am obedient unto His direction in my life. This gives me Divine purpose.
Again, how many folks wonder what their purpose in life is.
I know mine.
It is to serve an amazing King.
For it is by grace [God’s remarkable compassion and favor drawing you to Christ] that you have been saved [actually delivered from judgment and given eternal life] through faith. And this [salvation] is not of yourselves [not through your own effort], but it is the [undeserved, gracious] gift of God; not as a result of [your] works [nor your attempts to keep the Law], so that no one will [be able to] boast or take credit in any way [for his salvation]. For we are His workmanship [His own master work, a work of art], created in Christ Jesus [reborn from above—spiritually transformed, renewed, ready to be used] for good works, which God prepared [for us] beforehand [taking paths which He set], so that we would walk in them [living the good life which He prearranged and made ready for us]. Ephesians 2:8-10 Holy Bible, Amplified Version
This leads me to a virtuous life.
Virtue means a conduct that conforms to an accepted standard of right and wrong.
Whose standard of what is right or wrong will you trust, Jehovahs or the worlds? Look around at the world and see if you want to live that type of life, I certainly do not.
Gratitude is not only the greatest of virtues, but the parent of all the others.” — Cicero
Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Bara (The Lord Creator) for creating in my life a heart dedicated to nurturing a loving obedient live dedicated to You. I love You and praise You in the name of my Beloved brother in Your Heavenly family Jesus Christ. Amen
May the gentle assurance of Jesus’ sweet love encompass you today and every day.
The mouth of the righteous is a fountain of life and his words of wisdom are a source of blessing, But the mouth of the wicked conceals violence and evil. Proverbs 10:11 Holy Bible Amplified Version
It may be the truth but why did you say it?
I have heard many spiteful folks say mean and cruel things to someone out of a sadistic pleasure to intentionally hurt them. In their defence to prevent retribution they say: “ Well it is the truth you know.” These pitiful creatures are not so mature as to take criticism whether lovingly or hatefully aimed at them.
Before you say something critical towards anyone remember: Why am I saying it?
Is it out of spite or is it to correct an error in their lives.
Is this the right place and time? I find a quiet place one on one is the best place for this discussion.
Am I qualified to speak on the subject? For example how can a single soul give council to a married one?
And finally, the most important aspect: will it bring glory to Christ? Will your Christian behavior drive people to Christ or away from Him?
“Truth is not a virtue unless it is given with love!” — Pete Welsh
Prayer: Please Jehovah Heseh (God is love) always guide my words to be those of love and virtue not hate and mean spiritedness so that they may bring healing, wisdom and strength to those that hear them. May my words emulate You my love. I humbly request this in the name of He who always spoke words of love Jesus Christ. Amen.
May the gentle assurance of Jesus’ sweet love encompass you today and every day
