Lunes de Ayuno: Agosto 3, 2015

Por tanto, dejando las enseñanzas elementales acerca de Cristo, avancemos hacia la madurez, no echando otra vez el fundamento del arrepentimiento de obras muertas y de la fe hacia Dios, de la enseñanza sobre lavamientos de la imposición de manos, de la resurrección de los muertos y del juicio eterno. Y esto haremos, si Dios lo permite. Hebreos 6:1-3

Nuestra nueva vida en Cristo nos permite niveles de crecimiento, esto nos otorga oportunidades para crecer y gozar de la gracia de Dios. El autor de Hebreos hace referencia  a una lista de enseñanzas que Cristo cimentó durante su ministerio, estas incluyen el :

arrepentimiento de obras muertas

la fe hacia Dios

la enseñanza sobre lavamientos de la imposición de manos

la resurrección de los muertos

juicio eterno.

El autor de Hebreos se refiere a estas ensenanzas como elementales o basicas en la vida del creyente, e insta al lector a avanzar hacia la madurez. Que es la madurez espiritual? y como se logra?

El resto del capitulo de Hebreos 13 se enfoca en 3 puntos de la madurez, estos son:

v.4-5  la constancia en la santidad, la madurez se demuestra con nuestro rechazo al pecado y la determinacion de vivir una vida apartada del mal.

v. 9 la constancia en el animo de servir sabiendo que aunque estemos en circumstancias dificiles e imposibles, nuestra esperanza está en el que es fiel en recompensar.

v. 13 la constancia de nuestro caminar en nuestro llamado desatará las promesas de Dios en nuestras vidas. La constancia o fidelidad de nuestra vida nos otorgará acceso a bendiciones que ya están disponibles en forma de promesas.

Uno de los grandes atributos de la madurez es la constancia en los diferentes aspectos de nuestra vida, el Apostol Pablo nos instruyo a que nuestro si sea si y nuestro no sea no. Es necesario que como hijos de Dios y cuidadanos de su Reino, nosotros avancemos de las enseñanzas elementales hacia la madurez. Es en la madurez que encontraremos las bendiciones que tanto necesitamos y anhelamos.

Oracion:

Padre Celestial, gracias por la oportunidad que nos das de crecer en tu conocimiento. En este día nos presentamos en ayuno y oración rogando de tu gracia y misericordia, te pedimos nuevos ánimos y sabiduría para poder entender y aceptar el reto de la constancia en nuestras vidas. Te ruego que nos fortalezcas en nuestro intento de ser fieles y valientes. Que nuestro si sea si y nuestro no sea no. A ti sea la gloria y la alanza, gracias Papá. AMEN

God’s Rx –Dr. Jenny Lopez

d3ca19fd56648205d13a67be2ebec092_XL“They will prolong your life many years … this will bring health to your body and strength to your soul.” Proverbs 3:2, 8 

It is recommended we schedule a physical exam, and at least 2 routine dental appointments every year. These recommendations are to detect any abnormalities in our bodies early, if there are any. The purpose that our bodies be maintained in a healthy stability.  Similarly God, through His Word, makes spiritual recommendations that, amazingly, have physical health benefits.

God tells us, “They will prolong your life many years … this will bring health to your body and strength to your soul …Proverbs 3:2, 8

God’s Rx

– Let thy heart keep my commandments v.1

 Let not kindness and truth forsake thee (integrity and love) v.3

– Trust in the Lord v.5

– Do not be wise in your own opinion v.7

– Honor the Lord with your wealth v.9 v.11

– Do not despise the discipline v.11

God’s prescription for good health and long life, is not based on natural drugs or expensive procedures. His prescription for a healthy and strong body is of a discipline, instruction and obedience onto Him. This list of tips give us very little room to live a natural life based on the conventional. His “RX” is directly linked to controlling the “I,” because it is the focus on the “Self” that limits us. An undisciplined focus on “Self” restricts us to the known, to anything that represents “security,” and anything our culture considers “acceptable.”

Our God is not of a limited perspective. His purpose is global. His guidance will expand a tunnel vision and will order the steps to a fulfilling future.

This morning, as we enter into His presence in fasting and prayer, I invite you to consider applying God’s prescription to a long and healthy life. The benefits are tangible and will not wait.

Prayer: Father, thank you for your sovereignty over everything and everyone. This morning I stand before you confident, knowing your guidance is faithful and true. Your authority reigns and is effective in the laws you have established. Thank you for the recommendations you give us, and thank you for the direct benefits you have commanded for our health. In Jesus Name. Amen.

La Mejor Receta por Dra. Jenny Lopez

“Porque prolongarán tu vidd3ca19fd56648205d13a67be2ebec092_XLa muchos años…esto infundirá Salud a tu cuerpo y fortaleza a tu ser.” Proverbios 3:8

Los medicos recomiendan, de acuerdo a nuestra edad, planeemos un examen fisico por año, y por lo menos 2 visitas rutinarias al dentista. Ellos nos recomiendan estos chequeos para detectar cualquier abnormalidad en nuestros cuerpos de manera temprana. Consequentemente el proposito es conservar nuestros sistemas en un estado saludable.

De la misma manera Dios, por medio de su Palabra, nos hace algunas recomendaciones. Lo sorprendente es que las recomendaciones que Dios nos hace son para nuestro beneficio fisico, y no solamente espiritual. Dios nos dice,

“Porque prolongarán tu vida muchos años…esto infundirá salud a tu cuerpo y Fortaleza a tu ser… Proverbios 3:2,8

La receta de Dios

-guarda mi mandamientos en tu Corazon v.1

-no abandones el amor y la verdad (integridad y amor) v.3

-no seas sabio en tu propia opinion v.7

-confia en el Senor v.5

-honra al Señor con tus riquezas v.9

-no desprecies la disciplina v.11

La receta de Dios para una buena salud y larga vida, no es basada en drogas naturales o medicina costosas. Su receta para un cuerpo saludable y fuerte es un regimen de disciplina, instruccion y obediencia a El. Esta lista de consejos nos dan muy poco espacio de vivir una vida natural basada en lo convencional. Su “receta” es basada en el dominio del YO. Pues es el YO el que nos limita. Nos limita a lo conocido, a lo que representa “seguridad”, a lo que nuestras culturas consideran aceptable. Nuestro Dios no tiene una perspectiva limitada. Su perspectiva es global.

En esta mañana, mientras nos presentamos en la presencia de Dios en ayuno y oracion, te invito a que consideres aplicar esta receta a tu vida. Los beneficios son palpables y no se haran esperar.

Oracion:

Padre, gracias por tu Soberania sobre todo y todos. En esta mañana, me presento delante de ti CONFIADA. Sabiendo que tu guianza es fiel y verdadera. Que tu autoridad reina y es efectiva en las leyes que tu haz establecido. Gracias por las recomendaciones que nos das, y gracias por el beneficio directo que le das a nuestra salud. En el Nombre de Jesus. Amen.

36:Again-For the First Time by Dr. Jenny Lopez

unnamedJuly 21, 2014, exactly a year ago, I woke up with much excitement and great birthday expectations. At the same time, part of me was secretly struggling to accept my new age… “38”. For some reason I could not accept my age reaching such high numbers… anyways, as I console myself with positive reasoning, I still decided to do the math. Yes I actually took out a calculator and subtracted: 2014-1977= ___ To my great surprise, the answer was 37! I was not 38, I was 37! lol

Now you might think this was good news for me, well yes, but just for a min. It wasn’t long before I realized I had totally missed out on being 36. I had lived a whole year behaving, aching and believing older.

Can you image that?  I felt cheated!  I spent the rest of my 37th birthday analyzing the factors that had led me to forget a whole year of “youthful living”. Now if you, who are reading this, are younger than 36, you may find my concern to be invalid, but if you are older, you know how precious the low numbers are. So, I began to think of the clothes I had worn, the style, the colors, the places I had not visited, the jokes I had not laughed at, just because I had to “act my age”.

I realized, I had been too busy, too involved and preoccupied with the nonsense of life.

Finally, I came to terms with reality, and decided to be thankful for being 37, at least I had another year to not be 38. lol

NOW, the great news is that, throughout my 37th year, my life was blessed beyond my imagination could ever fathom. Literary, my life has taken a turn toward abundant living. Did it mean shedding layers of rejection, insecurities, confusion, religion? YES. Did it take a new mentality? YES. Did it take new friends? Yes. Did it take a new God? NO, He is still the same, He does not change, I had to change to know Him better.

Only 12 months later, my life is different. Now at 38, my sphere of influence has increased from local to global. My friends continue to be close, faithful, and handpicked. The only difference is that I don’t pick them myself anymore. At the level that my life flows, my friends are now chosen by my amazing heavenly Father.

Just last week, one of my new friends, offered to stand by me if I choose to live 36 Again and for the First Time. I consider that offer, one of the greatest gifts I can receive today. It is marvelous that God has surrounded me with unique friends who can help me recover what had been lost. I am ready to regain the youth and fun of 36, and perfect the wisdom of 38!

I am thankful for life, love and creativity. I am thankful for my friends.

36:Again-For the First Time by Dr. Jenny Lopez

ERES BELLA

Dr. Reuben Egolf: Integrity- The Foundation of a Nation

At PA Capital It is not the political maneuvering and mere titles that affect a nation to become something better than it currently is. It all starts somewhere and it begins with leadership INTEGRITY.  The integrity of leadership is the rock which a country anchors itself to. It provides stability, protection, and a hope for a better future. Interestingly, forces for change are found within leaders whose character doesn’t change. A country’s economic and social progress does not happen automatically as a big bang theory of national success. It begins with leadership and their integrity!

When an earthquake happens you will see yellow caution tape placed around certain buildings, warning of the possible danger of collapse. The authorities will use the phrase “the integrity of this building has been compromised.” It is now to dangerous to interact with it. Integrity is measured by how much pressure the individual or thing can withstand before compromising and becoming weak which can lead to collapse. When it comes to people, integrity is the consistent adherence to a set of values and morals.

The current congress of the United States started 2015 with an approval rating of just 16%. According to Gallup, 3 out of 4 Americans (76%) disapprove of the job of congress. Why? The answer is quite simple; saying one thing in a campaign and doing another once in office betrays the trust of the people. A divorcement happens between citizen and politician and instead of working and collaborating together to make a nation better, it becomes a polarized environment. It is not mere partisan politics but it is the politician and people being at odds that create the toxic environment that breeds no movement or progress.

Leadership of nations need the cooperation of the citizenry to accomplish the vision and goals it has set before them. People willingly follow when they can trust leadership. The foundation of trust is integrity. Charisma grabs the attention of people but character sustains their gaze. Ultimately they follow in agreement because of character and integrity which has produced in their heart “I trust you!” Even when they may not understand completely all of the “ins and outs” of legislation and political tools to get somewhere, but because they trust you, they will share the dream.

Integrity is not created overnight but is the result of being forged in the fires of adversity. When a person does not agree with you on a certain subject, they will respect you because of your integrity. That gives you the opportunity to be heard at all times. Honor permits influence to take place. Integrity creates the opportunity for honor – honor blows the wind of influence – influence provides the movement to achieve the goal.

Integrity is attractive. For example, when a fruit tree bears fruit it does not bring you the fruit. You are attracted to the tree. It in itself becomes a force of influence that draws people to you and your vision instead of driving them away.

Remember, a thousand right acts can be nullified by one wrong. One lie can call into question every truth I ever told. Integrity is worth every storm of temptation you have to endure to maintain the necessary influence.

What can I do for you? – Dr. Jenny M Lopez

Close up of earbuds What can I do for you woman (man)? … What do you have at home? 2 Kings 4: 2

This morning I invite you to receive STRENGTH and FOCUS. Strength to persevere and continue to press toward the goal, even in the midst of any situation or adversity you may be facing. And FOCUS to tune in to the Voice of God. You will discover that He asks questions that provide us with transforming responses.

To the widow found in  2 Kings 4: 2, the Lord asked:

“What can I do for you, woman?”

Even before she could answer, He asked a second question ( a focus question). Her answer would change her destiny and save her family.

“… What do you have at home?”

In the desperation of her state, she could have asked for anything, and God knew that. This woman had recently widowed and was left in such debt that the creditors had come for her two sons, which would be taken as slaves.

Someone once said, “If you want to fill a woman’s life with bitterness? Hurt the man in her life … Her father, Her husband, or Her children. ”

This woman was in a state of terror. The questions God asked, through the prophet, led her to answer an eternal answer.

Her answer: “… Your servant has nothing at home … except a little oil …”

WoW! The beginning of his answer would have left her  in the same situation … but she continued … and considered mentioning the LITTLE OIL she had at home.

As you may know, that oil and the borrowed vessels turned into the product  she sold in her business … Her and her two sons were saved from a destiny of slavery and  bitterness, instead they discovered a future of financial solvency and prosperity.

Beloved sister, dear brother, I know not about your situation today, but I do know what God is asking you:

“what can I do for you?”

” … What do you have at home ? “

As you begin to answer, do not rush to mention what you do not have, rather, consider that which is still there.

Your financial, emotional, wholeness may be there. That is what God can use as the foundation for your increase.

Prayer: Precious Father, thank you for your Love, for your patience and grace toward us ! You’re wonderful, you know just how to make fall in love with you again and again . Your sweetness and calmness of your answers have transformed my life . This morning we come to you in fasting and prayer, presenting our bodies as a living sacrifice, clean and pleasing onto you. Father delight yourself in our consecration. I ask you to fine-tune our spiritual ears to hear your voice , we need divine answers . In the Name of Jesus , Amen .

Que Puedo Hacer por ti – Jenny M Lopez

ERES BELLA

Que puedo HACER por ti mujer (hombre)?… que tienes en casa? 2 Reyes 4:2Picture3

Feliz Lunes, Feliz dia de consagración!

En esta mañana le invito que reciba Fuerzas y Enfoque. Fuerzas para mantenerse y proseguir hacia la meta, aun en medio de cualquier situación o adversidad que pueda estar enfrentando. Y enfoque o afinación a la Voz de Dios. Pues la Voz de Dios nos hace preguntas que nos proveen respuestas transformadoras.

A la viuda de 2Reyes 4:2, el Señor le preguntó:

Que puedo HACER por ti mujer?”

Aun antes que ella le respondiera, le hizo una segunda pregunta que la enfocó en dar una respuesta que cambiaría su destino y a salvaría a su familia.

“… que tienes en casa?”

En la desesperacion de la situacion en la que ella se encontraba, ella podría haber pedido cualquier cosa, y Dios sabia eso. Esta mujer acababa…

Intimacy with God by Jenny Lopez

“My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me.” John 10:27

The true essimagesence of our being desires intimacy with God, our creator. The Voice we hear in intimacy with him, is so powerful, that it reveals the mind and plans of God for us. In the same way that his voice is not audible or recognizable by the physical senses, it can easily be overlooked as a simple thought.

As beloved children of God, let us seek to develop such intimacy with the Lord seeking his presence in the stillness of our soul and in the abundance of his Spirit.

You will no longer confuse his Voice with a thought or a mere idea, you will know it’s His voice speaking to you His beloved child. He communicates with the depths of our being and reveal His heart.

You may wonder and even question, if it is possible for God to have such a relationship with people? The answer is YES. God does not have favorites, his love is for everyone. The quiet voice of God is more audible in the soul of those who develop intimacy with Him.

Prayer:

Father on this day of fasting and prayer, we present our minds and hearts to you. I pray that each of us can learn to quiet the anxieties of our own plans, and begin to talk to you, listen to you. In the stillness of fasting and at the light of your Word, may your Voice speak to us in the sweetness of your power. In your Name Jesus, AMEN.

Intimidad no Favoritismo por Jenny Lopez

imagesMis ovejas oyen mi voz, y yo las conozco, y me siguen. Juan 10:27

La esencia de nuestro ser ahnela intimidad con Dios, nuestro hacedor. La voz de esa intimidad con EL es tan poderosa que nos revela la mente y los planes de Dios para con nosotros. De la misma manera por que, su voz no es audible o reconocible por el sentido físico, puede fácilmente pasar desapercibida como un simple pensamiento.

Como hijos amados de Dios busquemos desarrollar una intimidad con el Señor, busquemos su presencia en la quietud de nuestra alma y en la abundancia de su espiritu. Una vez que escuches esa voz nunca mas la confundiras con un pensamiento o con simples ideas. Sabrás que es Su Voz hablando a su amado hijo o amada hija. El conversará con lo mas profundo de tu ser y te revelara su corazón. Te preguntaras, sera posible que Dios tenga tal relación con algunas personas? La respuesta es SI, y la desea tener contigo. Dios no tiene hijos preferidos, su amor es para todos. La quieta voz de Dios es mas audible en alma de aquellos que desarrollan intimidad con El.

Oracion:

Padre en este dia te presento nuestra mente y nuestro corazón. Te ruego que cada uno de nosotros podamos aprender a callar la ansiedades de nuestros propios planes, y empecemos a conversar contigo, a escuchar de ti. Que en la quietud del ayuno y a la luz del estudio de tu Palabra, tu voz hable con la dulcura de tu poder. En tu Nombre Jesus, AMEN.
