You Must Clothe Yourselves With

LOVING TO EACH OTHER

  Since God chose you to be the holy people he loves, you must clothe yourselves with tenderhearted mercy, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience. Colossians 3:12 Holy Bible, New Living Translation

There is too little of tender hearted mercy today. Tender hearted mercy means that our hearts ache when we see someone in need. We make a commitment to help them where they cannot help themselves (do not mistake that for refuse to help themselves. If drug addicts refuse to take the steps necessary to destroy the habit all you help is nothing more than a crutch to them which does not help them). This is not a one day event or token kindness like giving to the food bank (although there is nothing wrong with that) but rather a long term commitment.

So if there is a youngster that is having problems in life us older generation should come along side of them and offer them our experiences, both good and bad (yes it is good for the younger generation to hear of our failures to help them see that we were just like them).

We must exhibit kindness, especially to the elder generation. If a senior needs someone to cut their grass or shovel the snow from their driveway we are to offer to help them (be careful not to be abused though. Just because they are seniors does not mean they cannot be manipulative, indeed most seniors I know are very manipulative.

That is why it is so important to pray to Jehovah to guide you to where your help is appreciated).

We must be there to strengthen the weak when temptation comes a knocking at their door. We have all opened that door when we should not have from time to time so we know what they are going through.

Resolve to be tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving, and tolerant of the weak and the wrong. Sometime in life you will have been all of these. Lloyd Shearer

Prayer: Please Jehovah Heseh (God is love) bless this child of Yours to emulate Your love with all those I encounter today so as to be a light to guide them to the most incredible love affair there ever can be or will. I humbly request this in the name of He who showed His supreme love for me on the cross Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Boy What an Answer.

DELIVERANCE COMES FROM THE LORD

This morning has begun early, waking up at one a.m. After suffering through a night of night sweats and weird dreams. I am suffering from withdrawal symptoms from cigarettes. I thanked my Beloved for them because I knew that these must occur when the poison is being eliminated from the body, having confidence that this time He will help see me through this to a successful conclusion. The very first morning devotional had these verses in them Psalm 46:10 (New International Version)
He says, “Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.”

Isaiah 43:2 (VOICE)
When you face stormy seas I will be there with you with endurance and calm; you will not be engulfed in raging rivers. If it seems like you’re walking through fire with flames licking at your limbs, keep going; you won’t be burned.

Psalm 62:5-6 New Living Testament)
Let all that I am wait quietly before God, for my hope is in him. He alone is my rock and my salvation, my fortress where I will not be shaken.

Psalm 34:17-18 New Living Testament)
The Lord hears his people when they call to him for help. He rescues them from all their troubles. The Lord is close to the brokenhearted; he rescues those whose spirits are crushed.

Psalm 73:26 (New Living Testament)
My health may fail, and my spirit may grow weak, but God remains the strength of my heart; he is mine forever.

Isaiah 41:1 MSG)
Don’t panic. I’m with you. There’s no need to fear for I’m your God. I’ll give you strength. I’ll help you. I’ll hold you steady, keep a firm grip on you.

Exodus 33:14 (New Iinternational Version)
The Lord replied, “My Presence will go with you, and I will give you rest.”

Deuteronomy 31:8 (New Living Testament)
Do not be afraid or discouraged, for the Lord will personally go ahead of you. He will be with you; he will neither fail you nor abandon you.

Joshua 1:9 (New Living Testament)
This is my command—be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid or discouraged. For the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.

Ephesians 3:16-17 (New Living Testament)
I pray that from his glorious, unlimited resources he will empower you with inner strength through his Spirit. Then Christ will make his home in your hearts as you trust in him. Your roots will grow down into God’s love and keep you strong.

John 14:16-17 (NKJV)
And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever— the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him; but you know Him, for He dwells with you and will be in you.

Psalm 5:3 (New International Version)
In the morning, Lord, you hear my voice; in the morning I lay my requests before you and wait expectantly.

Psalm 63:8 (VOICE)
My soul clings to You; Your right hand reaches down and holds me up.

Romans 8:38-39 (New Living Testament)
And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love. No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord. Boy what an answer He gave me. Prayer: Thank you my Beloved Jehovah-Mephalti (The Lord my Deliverer) for blessing me with these encouraging words that delivers me from the temptations endured during this difficult time. I exalt You in the name of He who delivers us all from sin Jesus Christ. Amen.                           

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

An Unvigilant Christian is The

FALL AWAY JOSEPHS QUOTES

 “Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walks about, seeking whom he may devour.” 1 Peter 5:8, 9 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Imagine walking down a trail and you find lion tracks. Would you be carefree and continue or would you be very vigilant as you continue down that trail?

We walk down that trail every day.

The trail of life must be walked upon but one must be vigilant to be aware of the dangers upon that trail.

The devil will roar at you with  which must be met with the counter attack of scripture and with confidence in that scripture.

He is always looking for the weak which is why we need communion with Christ every day and why we need to read and digest the powerful words of Scripture to keep us strong to defend ourselves from his wicked attack.

He is tricky and can make dung look like sugar to entice us to destructive vices.

That is why we need to depend upon the Holy Spirit to protect us and to warn us. How can we if we refuse to commune with Him daily?

An unvigilant Christian is the easiest pray for satan. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-‘Immeku (The Lord Is With You) for blessing me with the Holy Spirit to protect me from the snares which the evil ones lay to entrap me and for the guidance to avoid them in my daily walk with You. I praise You in the name of He who always outwitted the wicked ones Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Then I am Strong.

                                       

So I am well pleased with weaknesses, with insults, with distresses, with persecutions, and with difficulties, for the sake of Christ; for when I am weak [in human strength], then I am strong [truly able, truly powerful, truly drawing from God’s strength]. 2 Corinthians 12:10 Holy Bible Amplified Version

The world says: depend upon self, just try hard enough and you will succeed. That is a foolish fantasy. Sometimes you will succeed in the task but lose out on the reward of doing it in harmony with Jehovah. The other problem is you are doing what you want and not what Jehovah has made you to do. The fruition of this is unfulfillment in your endevour.

Christians, although we do not enjoy them, should be grateful for our weaknesses. Because, it is in our weaknesses that Christ is strong. The benefit of this is an ever closer relationship with Jehovah, Jesus and the Holy Spirit.

Depend upon self, wait for the fall. Depend upon Christ, be assured of the victory. Joseph a son of Jehovah.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Chatsahi (The Lord is my Strength) for supporting me in Your strong yet gentle arms when I am weak, when distress envelopes me, when I am wrongly persecuted and when sorrow and pain encompass my every being. I appreciate, love and adore You for these amazing attributes in the name of my strongest best friend Jesus Christ. Amen

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

I am More Afraid Of.

                                          

Their eye bulges from fatness [they have more than the heart desires]; The imaginations of their mind run riot [with foolishness]. Psalm 73:7 Holy Bible, Amplified Version

In each of us dwells the flesh.

We need the assistance of the Holy Spirit to keep it under control.

There is no one who ever goes a day without sinful thoughts.

How many men (married or single) do not look at a woman with lust?

How many women do not have envy in their hearts for those who are not more beautiful than they or have a better outfit than them?

The list is endless.

It is when we dwell upon fleshly desires that they take root and the root desires the thought to take action.

That is why we need the Holy Spirit to make us aware of these thoughts and how wrong they are. That is why we need the Holy Spirit to guide our thoughts away from the world and towards Christ.

I am more afraid of my own heart than of the pope and all his cardinals. I have within me the great pope, Self.” Martin Luther

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Tsidkenu (The Lord is Righteousness) for blessing me that You guard my heart diligently and protect me from myself for I am weak and simple minded compared to Your magnificent wisdom. I exalt Thee in the name of the strongest of them all Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

He Gives Strength

beautiful cluster of sunshine flowers

He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Isaiah 40:29 New International Version

I used to believe that if I tried hard enough I would conquer my weaknesses. Sometimes I would succeed for a while but then fall even harder than when the attempt was originally made.

 

It took me decades and a desperate agonizing cry for help and surrender to the Lord from the chains of my weaknesses that was making life a living hell and dragging me down into a permanent one.

 

At the second of complete and total surrender He smashed those chains and freed me.

That does not mean temptation does not rear its ugly head in suttle ways. At those moments I request His divine help. Sometimes He directly intervenes and sometimes He directs me to the tools necessary to defeat the wicked one.

This is an important lesson to learn not only for those suffering from destructive addiction but also for those afflicted with ruinous dispositions like gossiping or refusing to forgive or refusing to apologize or for being self centered and greedy.

“Deny your weakness, and you will never realize God’s strength in you.” Joni Eareckson Tada

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Yeshua (God my rescuer) for smashing the devastating weaknesses in my life and freeing me to be a loving child of Yours. I exalt You in the name of He who freed the man trapped by legions of demons Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

The Perfect Power Source.

THE DIVINE LIONS STRENGTH

 

“My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” 2 Corinthians 12:9 New International Version

 

We all have addictions that enslave us. Try as we may they will always conquer us. This leaves us feeling crushed and defeated.

 

Why not do the smart thing and hand it over to the perfect power source Jesus Christ.

 

When we completely surrender it to Him, He will conquer our demons.

 

Make no mistake about it, our addictions are demon possessed and we are too weak to defeat them.

 

I know because of my addiction, alcohol.

 

Try as I may I could not defeat my addiction. Sometimes it literally felt as if someone was pushing me into the liquor store and picking up the bottle even though on the inside I was screaming no, no.

 

Finally in desperation I cried out to Jesus and told Him if He does not free me from this demon I am going to die in a pile of puke in a drunken stupor. Instantly I was sobered up and have not touched a drop since.

That does not mean the demons do not come back to tempt me but I always call upon Jesus rather than depend upon myself and He has never let me down.

 

It is the same thing when we know we are going to face difficult situations.

 

Many times when we depend upon ourselves we fall flat on our faces with disastrous result.

 

Sometimes when I was a teacher I would walk into a certain class thinking it will be a breeze and failing miserably. At break I would find a quiet place and quietly pray for Jesus’ help and having a great class afterwards.

 

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireh (God our provider) for blessing me with Your divine providence to free me from the addictive shackles that we dragging me into hell and with Your divine provision in all times of need. I extol You in the name of He who always provided for His diciples Jesus Christ. Amen.     

                                                

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