An Attitude of Gratitude, ThanksGiving & Praise

 

 

 

Why So DownCast?

I remember a night when I went to Worship, feeling like I wish I could just sit down and have a good cry like some women are allowed to do“and nobody thinks any less of them for doing so, (However, I couldn’t even make my eyes to water, but I felt so despondent and oppressed and I could not explain why, I felt like I had sinned over and over and over again and just can’t get past this hurdle ever, and that I was a disappointment to myself and to Yahweh, woe is me, for I am undone“  “I, I, I, it’s was ALL about me”).

But, I went anyhow, and came very close to turning and walking out, right as I came to the door, and again as I went inside and kneeled down and started rehearsing the ‘Oh, What a Worm I am’ Song & Dance Routine, (you know the one “whereI’m so unworthy.”blah, blah, blah”)

I recalled Colossians 4:2 ~ “Continue steadfastly in prayer, watching therein with Thanksgiving or from the Amplified Bible“
Colossians 4:2 ~ “Be earnest and unwearied and steadfast in your prayer [life], being [both] alert and intent in [your praying] with Thanksgiving.

Then suddenly, I saw Yahweh’s Word on the OverHead Screen “and I changed my mind about myself, (those feelings of missing God yet one more time, and instead ALL I could think about was even if I don’t have any fruit“Yet I will rejoice in Yahweh ; I will exult in the [victorious] God of my salvation~!

I couldn’t recall at the time any that I have witnessed to about Yahweh that is now living a victorious life“in health, finances, etc.  Later on, Yahweh showed me some, but when your mind is fixed on yourself, it’s hard to see past your own short-comings}.

 
 
 

One Word From Yahweh can Change Your Life Forever

That Word was Habakkuk 3:18, and it is so Powerful and Applied Precisely to what I was Dwelling on about not having any Fruit in my Life~!

Memory Jog for Habakkuk 3:18.  A 318-MoPar was a Mighty Engine in some Chrysler-Plymouth-Dodge Muscle Cars, (the 1968 Plymouth RoadRunner comes to my mind, a close cousin of Bo & Luke Dukes of Hazard’s 1969 Dodge Charger SuperBee that also had a 318 engine).

Habakkuk 3:17-18, {Amplified Bible}
17 Though the fig tree does not blossom and there is no fruit on the vines,
[though] the product of the olive fails and the fields yield no food,
though the flock is cut off from the fold and there are no cattle in the stalls,
18 Yet I will rejoice in Yahweh ; I will exult in the [victorious] God of my salvation~!

Yet I WILL REJOICE IN Yahweh~!  (Same theme as Philippians 4:4 ~ Rejoice in Yahweh always [delight, gladden yourselves in Him]; again I say, Rejoice~!).  I thought about David and how he had to encourage himself in Yahweh at Ziklag.

David was greatly distressed; for the people spoke of stoning him, because the soul of ALL the people was grieved, every man for his sons and for his daughters: but David strengthened himself in Yahweh his God ~ 1 Samuel 30:6 (WEB).

 
 
 

You Shall Rejoice~!

From what I can find every time Yahweh told us to rejoice, he never made mention that if circumstances around you are happening great, then be happy and rejoice, (happy derives it’s meaning from the word ‘luck’ which has absolutely nothing to do with the certainty of being ‘blessed‘, in other words, if it happens to go favorable towards us, then we‘re happy)“This ‘Happiness’ depends on what ‘Happens’” to us.

What I do find is that if you look up the word ‘Rejoice ~ (Click Here), you’ll find this phrase associated with the word ‘Rejoice’, “and YOU SHALL Rejoice”.  It’s  not a request, it’s a command~!  “You Shall Rejoice~!

What if I don’t feel like Rejoicing, then Fine, Keep What You Got, (but, you’ll hate that).  However, if you want to Change the Circumstances You’ll Have to Start Rejoicing Before the Problem is going to be Solved. 

 
 
 

Faith Righteousness

This is not something we do in response to what we can see and touch that Yahweh has done for us, but something we do in expectation of John 3:16 ~ because we are assured that Yahweh is working on our behalf, or just because we Love Him.  Or to be honest, it is in response in confidence to something Yahweh has already done for us on the cross 2000 years ago.  He has given us everything that pertains to life and godliness, (Ephesians 1:3 & 2 Peter 1:3).  Our heart has to be Established in Faith Righteousness for us to enjoy success~!

1 Peter 1:3 (AMP) Praised (honored, blessed) be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ (the Messiah)!  By His boundless mercy we have been Born Again to an Ever-Living hope through the Resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,

An Ever-Living hope“  does not start the moment after we die and cross over to be with Yahweh.  This hope is Ever-Living and that would include ALL that time that we are living in our bodies on earth now, before we pass on to be with Yahweh, (Eternal Life, starting the moment you asked God to be your Father and Yahoshua to be your Lord), (John 3:16)
.

 
 
 

Giving Thanks

Somewhere in Psalm 136, we are admonished in Yahweh’s Word to Give Thanks “  not because it just happens to be that things are going our way“  but because His Loving-Kindness is FOREVER~!

Assignment: Read Psalm 136 and see if you can find where it instructs us to “Give Thanks”.

Look at just a few illustrations of who was told to rejoice“

Let ALL those who seek you rejoice
and be glad in you.  Let those who Love your salvation continually say, “Let God be exalted!”(Psalm 70:4)

Rejoice, you barren who don’t bear.  Break forth and shout, You who are not in labor!  For the desolate has many more children Than she who has a husband.”. Galatians 4:27

“if I am poured out on the sacrifice and service of your faith, I rejoice, and rejoice with you ALL.  In the same way, YOU ALSO REJOICE, and rejoice with me.  (Philippians 2:17).

 
 
 

The Correct Protocol

Psalm 100:1-5 ~ A Psalm of Thanksgiving.  {this part usually goes unnoticed or we deem it as nor a part of Yahweh’s Word, but this time it stuck out to me} “is the pattern of how to Enter into the Presence of Yahweh..

Psalm 100:1-5
1 Make a Joyful Noise to Yahweh, ALL you lands~!
2 Serve Yahweh with Gladness.  Come Before His Presence with Singing.
3 Know that Yahweh, He is God.  It is He who has made us, and we are His.  We are His people, and the sheep of His pasture.
4 Enter into his Gates with Thanksgiving, Into His Courts with Praise.  Give Thanks to Him, and Bless His Name.
5 For Yahweh is Good.  His Loving-Kindness endures Forever, His Faithfulness to All Generations. 

1 Thessalonians 5:16-188
16 Rejoice Always.
17 Pray Without Ceasing.
18 In Everything Give Thanks, for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus, (Yahoshua Ha’Mashiach) toward you.

Make Your Requests to Yahweh

This is saying exactly what Philippians 4:6 is saying.  Yahweh didn’t say don’t bring your requests.  Yahweh said “Bring ‘em on, There’s nothing that I can’t handle for you~!”  Proverbs 14:12 says “There is a way which seems right to a man; But the end thereof are the ways of death.”  “Anxiety in the Heart of a Man Weighs it Down”… “In Nothing be Anxious, but In Everything, by Prayer and Petition WITH ThanksGIVING, Let your Requests be made Known to God”, (Proverbs 12:25; Philippians 4:6; and also remnants of Matthew 6:25-34).

It seems right to us whenever we get a discomfort, or a financial loss, or any other attack from satan to call up as many folks as we know and start telling them just how bad we feel, and how sick we’ve been, or how bad the economy is, or whatever woe is current, and blah, blah, blah.  Or how bad our boss is treating us, or how our Pastor doesn’t understand me, etc.

Usually, these words start off with “You just don’t know”, or “Nobody knows what I’ve gone through”, or “You just won‘t believe what I’ve done”.  In Proverbs 14:12, these words are said to be “the ways of death”.  Proverbs 12:23 & Proverbs 13:16 says that to blab to everyone ALL the things that you think you did that are dumb or stupid “are the ways of a fool.  And this practice is also self-centered and anytime there is Selfish Ambition, there will be confusion and every sort of evil as James 3:13-16 will apply~!

 
 
 

They Owe Me

And on top of of that it‘s a lie, for Hebrews 4:15 tells us, “for we do not have a High Priest Who is unable to Understand and Sympathize and have a shared feeling with our weaknesses and infirmities and liability to the assaults of temptation, but One Who has been tempted in every respect as we are, yet without sinning”.

So, don’t ever say again, “Nobody knows”.  Yahoshua Knows~!  He not only Knows, he Understands and Sympathizes as he also went through it Himself and came out unscathed.  But, he was God.  No, he was not God at that time.  He became man.  And now he’s inside you, helping you overcome what he Himself had to overcome.

And don’t say, “I deserve”, or let yourself feel that you deserve something.  If you deserve something, and you actually really do deserve it, (such as being paid for something you did), then that’s what they owe and when they pay, there can be no ‘Grace’, because they ‘Owed’ you.

But, if your attitude is that no one ‘Owes’ me anything, and then to ‘Expect Nothing’, then if something comes up; then there can be ‘Grace’ and ‘Grace’ is how we get over, (Click Here to go read Romans 4:1-5 right now and then come back, I’ll wait for you).

 
 
 

Don’t Feel Sorry For Yourself

If you‘ve gone to ‘feelings’ and feeling sorry for yourself, and that you deserve something, can you see that this is the Total Opposite of Giving Thanks & Praising Yahweh for ALL the Things that are Going Right in your Life.  Get back on the Word what Yahweh says about you, (Click on Over to this Web Site and Read about the Way to Victory).

 
Good News~!
 

Has Someone ever Told you how Amazing You Are, and you said “Thank You” with a Smile, but in your Heart you Couldn’t Find any Reason to Believe what they said?

It’s Easy to Focus on the Things that are Wrong about us, and Super Easy to Agree with ALL the Negative Things that has ever been said about us.  I was Overwhelmed with Love when the Voice of Yahweh whispered to me “I still want you”.  What?  Yahweh are you Kidding me~!  You still want me?  Tears filled my eyes, and for the first time I found a Reason to Believe what he Spoke to me, (He Made us Accepted in the Beloved ~ Ephesians 1:6).

It’s not enough to read about Yahweh and have knowledge of Who He says you are and Never Enter into that Reality.  Yahweh Dreamed about you Before the Foundations of the Earth were Formed and He Wrapped your Body Around that Dream, (Jeremiah 1:5; Psalm 139:13-17; Isaiah 49:1,5; Exodus 33:12; Luke 1:15; Galatians 1:15).

Beloved the Truth is “No Matter How Many Times we may have Thought we Disqualified Ourselves, Yahweh still wants us, (Colossians 1:12; 2 Corinthians 3:5; 1 John 3:20)~!  This Reality is Profound, and it Changes Everything~!  Circumstances in our Lives Change, but Yahweh is Constant and His Dream about us is Still the Same~!

Yahweh is a Gentlemen.  He will Never Force His Dream for our Lives on us.  It is Totally Up to Us Whether we Choose to Walk out Yahweh’s Purpose or believe the Lies of the Enemy, (Deuteronomy 30:19).

Why would God have to Remind me that He still Wanted me, (or you)?  Because I had Forgotten.  I was so caught up in the Routine of Life, that I lost sight of the Very Thing that I was Living for “though I’m not worthy, He still wants me.  It’s a Beautiful Reality to know that even in my Weak Attempts to Love Him “He Wants Us~! (Isaiah 54:9)

Here’s what we Ought to be Saying.  I, even I, {Yahweh}, am He Who Blots Out and Cancels your Transgressions, for My Own Sake, and I will NOT Remember your sins.  Put Me in remembrance [remind Me of your merits]; let us plead and argue together.  Set forth your case, that you may be justified (proved right), (Isaiah 43:25-26).

Yahweh is saying, I’m writing you a Blank Check.  Mediate on, and Think about Some Events in Your Life when You did Something Right.  Put Yahweh in Remembrance of that.  Don’t Come to the Father every Time Rehearsing what you’ve Done Wrong when He’s Paid the Bill and Given you a Clean Slate.  Pop on over and Read this web site about Righteousness and then bop back over here.

 
 
In the Movie “City Slickers”, Curly tells Mitch about the Secret of Life, and says that there’s just One Thing “And then leaves that Stone Unturned by not Telling what that One Thing is “

Well, I found that Proverbs 4:21-24 says that the Words of Yahweh concerning you, that they are Life to those that find them and Health to your Whole Body~!

Furthermore, We are Instructed not to Let Yahweh’s Words Depart from our Eyes~!  Take the Scriptures up on this and Make up some 3x5 Index Cards and Hand-Write Philippians 3:13-14 on it.  Place these Index Cards up on your Mirror where you brush your teeth.  Put them on the Dashboard / Speedometer of your Vehicle, so that when you’re at a Stop Light you can Pause and Reflect on this Great Truth~!  Put them where you put Make-Up on or on the Refrigerator, (or both, at about Eye Level). 

I do not consider, brethren, that I have captured and made it my own [yet]; but ONE THING I do [it is my one aspiration]: Forgetting what “LIES” Behind and Straining Forward to what is Ahead, I Press on Toward the Goal to Win the [supreme and heavenly] Prize to which God in Christ Jesus is Calling us Upward, (Philippians 3:13-14).

d-Evil One will try to remind you of ALL those Times that you made so many mistakes.  In fact, he’ll say “You want to see the Video’s”, and Harp on Choices where you could have done better until you just hate yourself.  “LIES”, being the Operative Word, (Philippians 3:13-14).  He who Repeats or Harps on a Matter Separates Even Close Friends ~ (Proverbs 17:9); and it is the Enemy’s Plan for your Life to be Separated from Yahweh, and not have a Close Relationship with your Heavenly Father.

I, {Yahweh}, Will Not Remember your sins, {or what “Lies” Behind}.  1 John 1:9 says, “If we [freely] Admit that We Have Sinned and Confess our Sins, He is Faithful and Just (true to His own nature and promises) and Will Forgive our Sins [Dismiss Our Lawlessness] and [continuously] Cleanse us from ALL Unrighteousness [everything not in Conformity to His will in Purpose, Thought, and Action]”.

However, All of this Good News of the Gospel of Peace Can Only be Yours When You Allow Yahoshua to be your Lord.  If not, then see the Link Below

Don’t Talk the Problem~!

Rejoice~!  If you think it’s bad now, just proclaim with your mouth how bad and rotten you feel, and in a few days, things will grow even worse, and you’ll probably want to proclaim that also, “Seems like satan is attacking us and things have gone from rotten to worse, and just when it seems things cannot get any worse, they do“

Rejoice~!  You’ll probably feel some sort of “Self-Pity” and even get some minor lifting of the burden off your shoulders “  until tomorrow comes with the woes you called forth.  Then you’ll become so discouraged that eventually you will want to die, and probably will come home to be with Yahweh earlier than you were supposed to, blaming Yahweh the whole time.

I’m telling you as strongly as I know how“  if you’re doing this, (and we ALL want to tell our woes).  Woe unto you, Stop this Practice, or Things Will Grow Worse.  Treat it like ‘Cuss’ Words.  I’m Telling you ~ Rejoice~!

 
 
 

Magnify Yahweh, (and not the Problem)~!

Being Thankful Gets the Focus Off of Us and ‘Our Way’, and Onto Yahweh~!  The main problem with the hanging of the head and feeling so unworthy, is it highlights the fact that we are focused on ourselves and what we can do with our abilities.

So, being Anxious for anything WILL NOT Change the Matter One Ounce, and only Weighs us Down, as we are not Properly Built to Endure that Anxiety.  However, Yahweh is, for he said in 1 Peter 5:7, Cast ALL your Anxiety on Him, because He Cares for You ~ (Casting ALL your Worries on Him, because he Cares for you ~ World English Bible).  Yahweh is the “CareTaker”, so let him “Take your Cares Away”~!

Is Yahweh through with you because you missed it?  Not only are you still Yahweh’s child, but Philippians 1:6 says “being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Yahoshua, (the Messiah)”.  Whose strength are you relying on, yours or Yahweh’s? 

So, why so down cast oh my soul, put your trust in Yahweh, (Psalm 43:5).  Ephesians 1:6 says “to the Praise of the Glory of His Grace, by which He has made us Accepted in the Beloved”.

 
 
 

Petition Yahweh ~ Not Others~!

Now, the very Opposite of this is to go to Yahweh privately, (and not call and tell everyone you know).

Philippians 4:6 (NKJV) Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, WITH ThanksGIVING, Let your Requests be Made Known to God;

Supplication ~ make known one’s particular need.  Want, need.
Strong’s Concordance number 1162, (Greek)
(from The Complete Word Study Dictionary: New Testament © 1992 by AMG International, Inc., Revised Edition, 1993)

Don’t tell Yahweh how big your troubles are.
Tell your troubles How big YAHWEH IS~!


WITH ThanksGIVING let your requests be made known to God, (not everybody else, they can’t help you, they don’t have the Power to help you)“  let your requests be made known to God.

 
 
 

Again, I Say Rejoice~!

  • This is saying, “Yahweh I Want to Thank You for My Deliverance.  I thank you that according to your word, by His Stripes I am Healed”, (Isaiah 53:5; Matthew 8:17; 1 Peter 2:24); when you don’t feel very well.  This is calling in the answer to the problem, by proclaiming the Truth, (Romans 4:17).  The Facts will convict you, but the Truth will set you Free~!

The Facts might say, that you’re being rejected by your boss, or pastor or friend, and we could go rag on that to ALL we know on the telephone.  But, the Truth, (John 8:32) is higher than the Facts, and the Truth says that we are Accepted in the Beloved, (Ephesians 1:6).

Colossians 4:2 ~ Continue steadfastly in prayer, watching therein with Thanksgiving.

The Facts might say that you’re broke, but the Truth says we’re not broke, but rich, (2 Corinthians 8:9) ~ For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, (Yahoshua Ha’Mashiach), that though He was rich, yet for your sakes He became poor, that you through His poverty might become rich.

 
 
 
 

Here Comes The Judge~!

It’s like you’re in Court and the Accuser, (the prosecuting attorney, the one accusing and persecuting you) is on one side arguing his case, (and some of his points seems valid).

Then on the other side of the Court Room is Yahoshua, our Defender, and his points seem to make sense also.

But, in the middle of the Court Room, is not Yahweh trying to be convinced, but YOU are the Judge Whichever side you go with“  will win this case~!

The Judge has heard ALL the Evidence and then makes a Decision, (A Judgment), that Stands.  According to the Power that Works in us “  We’re the Ones that Decide how much we should be Blessed~!

However, we have a Helper, an Advocate, (Click Here to Read More).

If you Rehearse the Curse ~ it’ll grow Worse and Bring the Hearse~!

Even so, if we are going to call up our Friends, and tell them what woes the Doctors said, or the Prognosis that you don’t want, then you have just Rehearsed the Curse, and ALL the Accuser of the Brethren’s Pleas, and just Decided That’s Who Will Win as the Situation Will Grow Worse.

Psalm 91:1-3, (Amplified Bible)

 1 HE WHO Dwells , (who Remains Steadfast, who has a Permanent Resident and Stands
and Not Being Moved by what he Sees or Hears, who Abides), in the Secret Place of the Most High
Shall Remain Stable and Fixed Under the Shadow of the Almighty [Whose Power no Foe can Withstand].
2 I will say of Yahweh, He is my Refuge and my Fortress, my God; on Him I lean and rely, and in Him I [confidently] trust~!
3 For [then] He will deliver you from the snare of the fowler and from the deadly pestilence.

When?  When You “Say” what Yahweh says about you, (For [Then] He shall deliver you).
Rehearse the Curse, and it’ll grow Worse and bring the Hearse~!


Anytime you find yourself ‘Talking the Problem’, then you’re going in the wrong Direction,
(ie “How are we going to ????).

However, if we take our stand and do according to Yahweh’s Word, and say “Yahweh’s Word tells me that I am to owe no man anything, but to Love One Another”, Romans 13:8, and “That’s Exactly What I’m going to Do.”  However; Yahweh, I’m bringing my supplication.  I’m making my request known to you, with Thanksgiving.  “I want to Thank-You for just the right “(House, Car, etc.), that we are going to get”.

“I thank-you that you have already got that Special “ (Automobile/Vehicle/House, etc.), ready and waiting for us to receive it.  I know that it will be above ALL that I ask or think, and at this time.  So, Yahweh we wait with earnest expectation to see how you play out this song~!”

It‘s not like we have to catch Yahweh when he‘s not having a bad hair day, or smile and be cute.  No, it‘s the Father‘s good pleasure to give us the Kingdom, (Luke 12:32).

 
 
 

Abundantly Above All We Ask or Think, but we gotta Ask~!

Abba, Father, you are able to do exceedingly abundantly above ALL that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, (Ephesians 3:20), so I thank you for getting involved in this process with us, (Malachi 3:10).

Give us something exceedingly abundantly above ALL that we have asked and have thought according to the power that works in us.  Let‘s make it two vehicles, and one will be a new model Honda Odyssey Van, and the other a Truck with Side Panels, a Dodge Dakoda with rear doors that open. And make it Red, {because I read in the Word that I could have what I say, (Mark 11:23)}.

I thank-you that these vehicles will have the Sports Edition Package on the van, if it’s 4-cylinder then complete with a 16-Valve Dual Over Head Cam, Fuel Injection but very Quiet inside, CD Changer, and the Android FM Transmitter Connection with the capability to have the Cell Phone play through the radio speakers.  And Power Windows and Power Seats are on this order as well as Cloth Seats and a Towing Package and a 5’x14’ Trailer, and great Tires that last and hold the road, and Forever Maintenance Free, {as the Blessing of Yahweh makes one rich and adds no sorrow with it ~ Proverbs 10:22}~!

 
 
 

Think Big~!

And you can also give us a new truck in addition to the vehicle request cause sometimes a truck would be nice.  I also would like to have a Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano, and even though it might not carry groceries, it’s just something that I’d like to have and it makes me quit Thinking Small that we might just be Truly Blessed Indeed and bring others into your Goodness by seeing such Favor on our Lives, bring me to your Banqueting Table, (Solomon 2:4).

Yahweh, if we have another vehicle we’re also going to need another garage or garages or even another house, and so I just want to thank you for getting this 2008 Hyundai Sonata to us, and if it means getting a new house to us to house the cars, and abundance of this answered prayer, then so be it.  I thank you for our Debt-Free Sonata, (or whatever better upgrade you plan to bring us)~!

 
 
 

Enter into His Gates with Thanksgiving~!

Back to when I was feeling glum and not worthy“  But in the area of Prayer and Supplication, these feeling have nothing to do with how we are to get our petitions accomplished.  And certainly have no place for Entering into Gates.

Psalm 66:16-20, {World English Translation + my interpretation}
16 Come, and hear, ALL you who fear God.  I will Declare what he has done for my soul. 
17 I cried to Him with my mouth.  He was Extolled with my Tongue. 
{my interpretation} High Praise to Yahweh is the only thing you’ll hear me say was on my tongue. 
18 If I cherished sin in my heart, Yahweh would not have Listened {to me}.
19 But most assuredly, God has Listened.  He has heard the Voice of my Prayer.
20 Blessed be God, who has not turned away my prayer, Nor his Loving-Kindness from me. 

 
 
 

The Light Dawns~!

I’m not cherishing sin in my heart.  I’m regretting doing anything that has not brought Praise to Yahweh.  God has listened.  He has heard the voice of my prayer.  Blessed be God, who has not turned away my prayer, Nor his Loving-Kindness from me.  I may not have fruit that shows yet; however, my life and influence is not over~!

Daniel 12:3 ~ {I can see a brightness on the horizon“  a Sunrise ~ the Light is Dawning upon me}
3 Those who are wise will shine like the brightness on the horizon.  Those who lead many people to righteousness will shine like the stars forever and ever, {God’s Word Translation}

It’s my deepest desire to lead others and the children that I have been entrusted with to walk in the paths of righteousness.  I’ll shine like the stars FOREVER and EVER.  I’m not the “Woe is me, I am undone, I am a man of unclean lips”  NO, no, not me.  Not anymore, I’m a man saying the right things to Yahweh.

My Praise offering has been and is still being accepted, Praise is becoming to the upright, (Psalm 33:1), and I’ve Confessed my sin, and he has been faithful to forgive me of ALL unrighteousness, (1 John 1:9)

 
 
 

Praising Yahweh~!

So, I began to Praise Yahweh“  and I knew that the reason that I had felt sad was that I was taking a thought, (Matthew 6:31-34)...  and that thought bomb was coming from d-Evil one.  I reflected on how Saul would have a tormenting spirit and when David played that spirit had to depart.

An oppressing spirit.  For a moment it was ‘Touch and Go’.  Yahweh touched me with his Word, and I touch Yahweh with my Praise and d-Evil one had to go, (Psalm 149:5-6; Ephesians 4:27).  We bopped that oppressing spirit, and he headed for the door~!

Joyful Again~!  The Joy of Yahweh is our Strength~!

Yet I will Rejoice in Yahweh.  I will be joyful in the God of my salvation! (Yahweh is going to get me out of this mess ~ Oh Yeah~!) ~ Habakkuk 3:18

I’m thanking Yahweh for solving any problems through my petitions.  I’m making some joyful noises~!  I’m coming in singing about our Sonata“  and our Some-God-ah we got~!

I Enter HIS Gates with Thanksgiving“  I’m coming into His Courts with Praise.  I’m giving Thanks to Yahweh.  Yahweh is GOOD.  His Loving-Kindness and tender mercies are forever.  His faithfulness is not just to me but to ALL Generations.  What an Awesome God Yahweh is~!

 
 
 

Rejoicing Means That at One Time You Had Joy to be able to Joice, {to have Joy}~!

Shalom, means “Completeness”, or “Nothing Missing, Nothing Broken”, and implies that there was something missing, taken or stolen, and it has now been recovered.

 
 
 

A Firm Foundation~!

No weapon that is formed against you shall be blessed; and every tongue that shall rise against you in judgment, you shall condemn.  This is the inheritance of the servants of Yahweh, and their righteousness is from Me, says Yahweh, (Isaiah 54:17)

(AMP) Surely or only goodness, mercy, and unfailing Love, {Loving-Kindness} shall follow me ALL the days of my life, and through the length of my days the house of Yahweh [and His presence] shall be my dwelling place forever, (Psalm 23:6).

(AMP) The blessing of Yahweh—it makes [truly] rich, and He adds no sorrow with it [neither does toiling increase it], (Proverbs 10:22). {The blessing of Yahweh brings wealth, And he adds no trouble to it}.

When things go bad for you, say to yourself, “It’s just one of those Days”, but in regard to Psalm 23:6.  Surely Goodness & Mercy is following me ALL the Days of my Life, to bless me in ALL that I do, and Today is just “One of Those Days”.

 
 
 

A Firm Foundation~!

Philippians 1:6
(AMP) And I am convinced and sure of this very thing, that He Who began a good work in you will continue until the day of Jesus Christ, (Yahoshua Ha’Mashiach) [right up to the time of His return], developing [that good work] and perfecting and bringing it to full completion in you.

When things go bad for you, say to yourself, “It’s just one of those Days”, but in regard to Psalm 23:6.  Surely Goodness & Mercy is following me ALL the Days of my Life, to bless me in ALL that I do, and Today is just “One of Those Days”.

For I know the thoughts and plans that I have for you, says Yahweh, thoughts and plans for welfare and peace and not for evil, to give you hope in your final outcome, (Jeremiah 29:11).

Proverbs 15:13 -
A merry heart makes a cheerful countenance: but by sorrow of the heart the spirit is broken.

 
 
 

A Firm Foundation~!

1 Corinthians 15:57 ~
But Thanks be to Yahweh, who gives us the victory through our Lord Yahoshua HaMashiach.

2 Corinthians 2:14 ~
But Thanks be to Yahweh, who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and reveals through us the sweet aroma of his knowledge in every place.

Isaiah 41:2 ~ “whom victory meets at every step?

Psalm 46:1-2 ~

Matthew 6:25-34, (WEB)

I Was Made To Praise You
By Chris Christensen

(Listen to this song by Clicking Here)

I was made to praise You
I was made to glorify Your name
In every circumstance
To find a chance to thank You


I was made to Love You
I was made to worship at Your feet
And to obey You, Lord
I was made for You

I will always praise You
I will always glorify Your name
In every circumstance
I’ll find a chance to thank You

I will always Love You
I will always worship at Your feet
I was made for You

 
 
 

Rejoicing in Adverse Circumstances

My friend had his house broken into and someone stole his computer and his son’s cell phone and he was writing a book on that computer.  He was so bummed out and felt violated“  However, I reminded him of something my sister told to me.  Any problem that can be replaced with money is not a problem at ALL.  Still his head hung down.  Then I reminded him that we could be thankful that none of his family were hurt, (it happened in broad day light), and that we are not at the hospital right now or the funeral home.

Then we started singing praises, and within an hour we got a report from the Sheriff’s Department that one of the bad guys had used the stolen cell phone to text message someone else, (their goose is cooked).  All of this will be recovered, but it started with thanking Yahweh not for the recovery, but for what we could Thank Yahweh for.

After He Had Given Thanks

John 6:11 ~ (Yahoshua gave Thanks first)
11 And Jesus took the loaves, and when He had given Thanks He distributed them to the disciples, and the disciples to those sitting down; and likewise of the fish, as much as they wanted. 

John 6:23 ~ (Why would John even note that Yahoshua had given Thanks unless it was significant)
23 however, other boats came from Tiberias, near the place where they ate bread after Yahoshua had given Thanks—)

Acts 16:22-35 ~ (Whiner’s or Worshipers ~ Do You have the Whine Flu or are you Worshipping the One who’s True~!)
25 But at midnight Paul and Silas were praying, (compare to how Paul described how to pray in 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 & Philippians 4:4-6), and singing hymns to Yahweh, and the prisoners were listening to them.

4 Rejoice in Yahweh always.  Again I will say, rejoice! 5 Let your gentleness be known to ALL men.  Yahweh is at hand.  6 Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with Thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God;

Colossians 4:2
2 Be earnest and unwearied and steadfast in your prayer [life], being [both] alert and intent in [your praying] with Thanksgiving

Psalm 42:5
5 Why are you in despair, my soul?  Why are you disturbed within me?  Hope in God~!  For I shall still Praise Him for the saving help of his presence.
