God Gives Us Just Enough To

 Just as you cannot understand the path of the wind or the mystery of a tiny baby growing in its mother’s womb, so you cannot understand the activity of God, who does all things. Ecclesiastes 11:5 Holy Bible, New Living Translation

Early in my walk with Jesus, He would slowly reveal Himself to me a little bit at a time. Each time I was silly and believed I knew God. Then Jehovah would throw a curve ball at me and reveal something of Himself to me that was totally unexpected. A good laugh would be shared between us.

Even now, after decades of walking with Him and being very intimate with Him my knowledge of Him would fit into a teaspoon.

That is the wonderful thing about Him though, it is always a surprise and great delight when He blesses me with a revelation of another attribute of Him. He truly is, an awesome God.

“God gives us just enough to seek him, and never enough to fully find Him. To do more would inhibit our freedom, and our freedom is very dear to God.” — Ron Hansen

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah GELAH RAZ ( the God of the Revealer of Mysteries) for blessing me with revelation of You and Your amazing mysterious attributes. I thank you for the gift of knowing more and more about You as You expand Yourself to me. I praise You in the name of He who exemplified You as He walked amongst us Jesus Christ. Amen

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

You Faithfully Answer.

 You faithfully answer our prayers with awesome deeds, O God our savior. You are the hope of everyone on earth, even those who sail on distant seas. Psalm 65:5 New Living Translation Bible

Prayer is the sweetest conversation freely available to all who belong in Jehovahs family. He always answers.

Many times He answers in mysterious ways that we do not understand until the proper time of revelation (He has done that with me oh so many times).

Many times while conversing with Him, He will guide to verse after verse in the Bible to make sure there is no doubt about what He is saying and blessing us with a clear vision of what His advice is.

There has been so many times when in times of extreme stress in prayer He has blessed me with peace, comfort and assurance. Far better than anything the world has to offer.

When confused about the road to travel or the action to take, He always blesses with advice in His Holy Guidebook (the Bible) on the proper course of action to take or where to go to find a Godly mentor to assist us in the proper course of action to take.

There has been so many times when exhaustion has sapped every molecule of energy from the soul and it feels like sinking into the abyss that in prayer He strengthens the spirit to explode into action with Divine strength.

Why would anyone go to anyone or anything other than the ultimate caregiver, Jehovah? They cannot even begin to compare with Him.

“Prayer wonderfully clears the vision; steadies the nerves; defines duty; stiffens the purpose; sweetens and strengthens the spirit.” — S. D. Gordon

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Pyyrand (Jesus my best friend) for the honour of always being able to talk with You. It is the one of greatest gifts You have freely abundantly given me. It is the best part of my day. I rejoice in this treasure in Your beautiful name. Amen

May you be blessed with abundant joy in your heart filled with love and your life overflowing with laughter every day this year.

I am Rich, I am Poor

CHRIST IN ME

 But that is the time to be careful! Beware that in your plenty you do not forget the Lord your God and disobey his commands, regulations, and decrees that I am giving you today. Deuteronomy 8:11 New Living Translation Bible

I am rich, I am poor.

That pretty much sums up my life.

When the times were materially good my spiritual relationship with Jehovah was as cool as a corpse. The funny thing is though that even though I was living a life of comfort and ease there was something missing. I could not put my finger on it.

Then, when the good times came to an end and the material hard times came I found I was close to Jehovah spiritually.

From a lot of experience I greatly prefer the spiritual wealth over the material ones.

There is a saying that when the times are good the church is empty but when the times are hard the church is full.

Why wait for the hard times when you can be blessed with a daily close loving obedient relationship with Jehovah. Then when the hard times come, they are not so hard because of your closeness with Jehovah.

When we arrogantly turn our back on Jehovahs commands, decrees and regulations we pay a very severe price for it. Just read the history books of any country to confirm it.

I have found that this verse is oh so very true to be blessed with a contented, grateful life:

Give me neither poverty nor riches! Give me just enough to satisfy my needs. Proverbs 30:8 New Living Translation Bible

“We can stand affliction better than we can prosperity, for in prosperity we forget God.” Dwight L. Moody

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah El SIMCHAH GIYL (God my Exceeding Joy) for the most wonderful of gifts and that is the never ending joy that comes from nurturing an eternal loving relationship with You. I revere You in the name of He who brings me ecstatic joy when in His wonderful presence Jesus Christ. Amen

May you be blessed with peace and joy every day.

God is in Your Midst  

GOD IS WITH US

This past week mom (I am a unpaid live in care giver for my mom. If I am not here she will be put into a seniors home) has been constantly taunting me that this is HER house and she does not need me. She can throw me out at her slightest whim.   I know my Lord desires me to remain here but it really gets me down.         

 These verses and quotes stuck out to me this morning while reading morning devotionals.              

For I know the plans and thoughts that I have for you,’ says the Lord, ‘plans for peace and well-being and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope. Jeremiah 29:11    The Holy Bible Amplified Version                                    

 “I will never [under any circumstances] desert you [nor give you up nor leave you without support, nor will I in any degree leave you helpless], nor will I forsake or let you down or relax My hold on you [assuredly not]!”  Hebrews 13:5 The Holy Bible Amplified Version                         

   I don’t know what  tomorrow brings;  But I know who knows, and I know He holds my hand who holds tomorrow in His other hand. Joseph a son of Jehovah                                                                                  

   Is anything too difficult or too wonderful for the Lord? Genesis 18:14  The Holy Bible Amplified Version             

   “What seems too difficult for us is a sure sign that it belongs to God.” — Marie DePree                                                                  

 “The Lord your God is in your midst, A Warrior who saves. He will rejoice over you with joy; He will be quiet in His love [making no mention of your past sins], He will rejoice over you with shouts of joy. Zephaniah 3:17 The Holy Bible Amplified Version                                             

About an hour afterwards as laying in bed my heart started tingling like a mild electric current was stimulating it.  Then there was a tingling in my mouth (no not like the current was running from my heart to my mouth but each was separate). I could not stop singing Glllllory, gloorrry , glorrry in excelsis.        

Next my right finger after the thumb tingled and was outstretched towards Heaven. This continued for an hour.                                                                     

 Wow, what an experience.                                                                      

   Do you think my Heavenly Love was trying to tell me something?  

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ‘Immeku (The Lord Is With You) for blessing me with your reassurance that no matter what comes my way whether good or bad You are always right here with me. You are indeed all I need in life and You are my life. I exalt You in the name of my best friend who continuously walks beside me Jesus Christ. Amen May

Christ bless you with love, joy and peace today and every day.

Did You Know That?

GOD IS WITH US

“Now we can rejoice in our wonderful new relationship with God — all because of what our Lord Jesus Christ has done for us in making us friends of God” (Romans 5:11 New Living Testament).

Do you know that?

Do you know that when you accept Jesus Christ as your savior He instantly becomes your best friend?

Wow!

What an awesome thought huh?

Now just as with humans in order for there to be a friendship, we need to have the same interest and desire to share time together.

Do you enjoy spending time with your best friend?

Do you read His love letters to you, the Bible on a daily basis? For a deeper understanding of His love letters may I suggest  Our Daily Journal from RBC and Our Daily Bread by RBC.

Do you listen to His love songs for you, how much time do you spend listening to Christian music? May I suggest Praise 1065 and Joy Fm (St Louis or Florida).

I would like to suggest going to church, however, from a personal experience I find too many wolves amongst the sheep there (please read 2 Timothy 3:15 to see what I experience in church).

Do you listen to His message to you? I like going to seromonaudio.com and listening to Alistair Begg, Charles Spurgon Vance Havener and A.W. Tozer.

Now what makes people friends?

Could it be because they enjoy dong the same thing?

Well what did Jesus do when He was here?

Here is His guide to enjoy camaraderie with Him

Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’ “Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’ “The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’ Matthew 25: 34-40 New International Version

Speaking from personal experience,  in Canada, I have found doing volunteer work extremely rewarding. Both, in personal satisfaction and the knowledge that is was making my best friend very happy.

So how is your relationship going with your best buddy?

To fall in love with God is the greatest of all romances; To seek him, the greatest adventure; To find him, the greatest human achievement. Raphael Simon

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Pryyand (Jesus my friend) for being my best friend and honoring my with such special moments as when we walk together and talk together. I gratefully give thanks in You loving name. Amen.

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

He Spreads the Snow.

WAIT UPON GOD

These articles are dedicated to the wonderful and amazing way Jehovah Jireh (the Lord our provider) answers prayers. It is a simple journal that I would like to use as an example for others to list their sincere prayer requests and then how our Beloved answers them.                                                                                                                                       It will amaze you and create a heart of gratitude and respect for our gracious Jehovah Heseh (Our God of love).

He spreads the snow like wool and scatters the frost like ashes. Psalm 147:16 New International Version                                                        

As there is a snow storm predicted for our area I prayed that we would not get the storm but rather a constant gentle snow flurry.                                                                               

Yesterday morning when I woke up there was a constant gentle snow flurry outside which has lasted all day.                                                                                                             

This morning I awoke to see huge snowdrifts outside. We were blessed with over a foot of snow last night.                                                                                                                              

I am sure the kids like it because of a snow day but I am even more sure it delighted the farmers even more.

As well we need it to replenish our streams and rivers.     

Another benefit is it will cover the roots so they do not get frozen and the plants like tree’s die like they did last year.                                      

Because last month there was a shortage of snow we need a good snowfall for our crops and to prevent soil erosion during these winter months.     

Finally because of the cold and snow it will kill harmful pests that lay eggs in tree’s.                                                  

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Nuah. (God who blesses with rest) for blessing us with just the right amount of snow to nourish and protect the land while not deluding us to make it treacherous for locals driving to worship You at church today. I humbly thank you in the name of He who nourished the crowd of three thousand Jesus Christ. Amen.                      

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