The Peace That only God Can Give

Philippians 4: 7 And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

I have seen so many christians that say they have faith, read the bible and  trust in God.  Yet when something happens  in their life, they get all bent out of proportion, and don’t know what to do. As a christian how do you react when tests and trials face you?This is the time when we are going through a difficult trial in our life and people are closely watching our outward expressions.    These test of trials are for us to produce staying power, faith and trust in God.  I never realized how many people watched what I do as a christian when I am faced with a trial.  I suppose most people go through the seven stages of trauma and finally accept it or get bitter.  My whole life has been full of trials, tests and grief. I think some times that I have become immune to them.  I have gotten to the point where after the shock and grief  I accept them and turn them over to  my almighty God. Then I start searching the Word  and  I ask God what is it that you want  to teach me this time around. I find that by doing this God is changing and molding me as an individual to become a better person.  All the things I don’t like about myself and have prayed to God to remove them my life, He removes them through some of these trials.  They’re not easy not easy, because he places me through the fire.  God breaks, humbles and molds my heart.  As I press on to get to the other side, He speaks to me through his Word, prayer and other people.  I know that he is there carrying me through it all. I never understood why I felt so much peace during these times. I thought that I was not normal, had no feelings or unremorseful.  I can’t understand it all, but I’m so fortunate and you’re so fortunate to have God in our lives. For every situation we are going through, “Let go and Let Go!”

A Calling from God

images-1“Paul, an apostle (not from men nor through man, but through Jesus Christ and the God the Father who raised him from the dead.)”   Galatians 1:1

Paul received his calling and title as an apostle, not from or through man, but by Jesus Christ.  The same is true for each of us.  Regardless of who you are and how you feel about yourself.  God has given you a gift and a calling.  Our natural tendency is to look to men for affirmation of our value and to trust in what they can do for us.  But it’s important to realize that man cannot give you a gift or a call.  That may be a bit disconcerting, but take comfort in the fact that in the same way that man cannot give your calling, no man, regardless of how powerful or influential, can ever take away the calling God has given you.  The God who calls and gifts us is the same God who raised Christ from the dead.  Nothing is to hard for him, and that includes opening the right doors for us at the right time.  He will give us the ability to do whatever it is he has called us to do.  Cling to his truth when it seems you are not appreciated, or when doors are slammed shut in your face.  God has called you and God has gifted you.  He will indeed open doors for you in his time and way as you patiently do what he has called you to do.

 

 

You Become What you Believe

images-128 When he had gone indoors, the blind men came to him, and he asked them, “Do you believe that I am able to do this?”
“Yes, Lord,” they replied.29 Then he touched their eyes and said, “According to your faith let it be done to you”        Matthew 9:28-29

Reflection                                                                                                       When we see that God is using others with great miracles. He is only using them because of their great faith. You and I become what we believe. If you believe positive, then positive things is what you will do with your life. We tend to naturally believe a lot of negative things. Now that we are transformed in God, our mind and our heart  should believe positive things. God will make the best things out of your life if you just believe. Just how the two blind men believed you should believe.

En la Obscuridad de la Noche

IMG_3071

“POR las noches busqué en mi lecho al que ama mi alma: Busquélo, y no lo hallé.2 Levantaréme ahora, y rodearé por la ciudad; Por las calles y por las plazas Buscaré al que ama mi alma: Busquélo, y no lo hallé.3 Halláronme los guardas que rondan la ciudad, Y díjeles: ¿Habéis visto al que ama mi alma?4 Pasando de ellos un poco, Hallé luego al que mi alma ama: Trabé de él, y no lo dejé, Hasta que lo metí en casa de mi madre, Y en la cámara de la que me engendró.5 Yo os conjuro, oh doncellas de Jerusalem, Por las gamas y por las ciervas del campo, Que no despertéis ni hagáis velar al amor, Hasta que quiera.” Cantar de Cantares 3:1-5

REFLECCION: Una noche sin obscuridad, no es noche. Preguntaselo a los europeos, cuya noche no empieza a obscurecer hasta como 10pm!! Imaginate noches con la luz del día… el sueño de muchos… En verdad…NO. Noches sin obscuridad nos instarían a no descansar del trabajo físico y material. Aunque la obscuridad de la noche significas, poner pausa a los afanes del mundo, también significa SILENCIO, SOLEDAD, DESCANSO, y ESPACIO PARA PASAR TIEMPO CON NUESTRO AMADO. Sabes que EL no está allí cuando la obscuridad de la noche no te brinda descanso, ni paz. Cuando la obscuridad de la noche, opaca tus sueños, tus anhelos y la ansiedad y frialdad encuentran lugar en tu alma. Si eso te ha sucedido, no sigas pasando noches obscuras y solitarias. Levantate busca al que ama tu ALMA. No lo dejes ir. Levantate, esfuerzate, no será conveniente; te incomodará. No te entenderán. Cuando te alejas de su presencia, de su Paz, no tendrás descanso hasta volver a estar en sus tiernos brazos llenos de misericordia y fortaleza. Dice este pasaje…”por las noches busqué en mi lecho… rodie la ciudad, por las calles, por las plazas… pregunté a los guardias… Y al fin lo hallé…” Y tu por cuantas noches insistirás en encontrarlo? Hasta donde irás a buscarle? A quien le preguntarás? NO TE RINDA…LO ENCONTRARAS.

Oración: Padre, Amado, gracias por la obscuridad de la noche, por las dificultades de la vida, por los fracasos… durante esos momentos de tinieblas,  es que tu presencia ilumina mi alma. Gracias por amarme, apesar de todo, gracias por tu fidelidad, y por que sé que sin Tí no soy.

It Is Written

untitledMatthew 4:1-10-  Then Jesus was led up by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil.  And when He had fasted forty days and forty nights, afterward He was hungry. Now when the tempter came to Him, he said, “If You are the Son of God, command that these stones become bread.” But He answered and said, “It is written, ‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God.’”[a] Then the devil took Him up into the holy city, set Him on the pinnacle of the temple, and said to Him, “If You are the Son of God, throw Yourself down. For it is written: ‘He shall give His angels charge over you,’ and, ‘In their hands they shall bear you up, Lest you dash your foot against a stone.’” Jesus said to him, “It is written again, ‘You shall not tempt the Lord your God.’” Again, the devil took Him up on an exceedingly high mountain, and showed Him all the kingdoms of the world and their glory. And he said to Him, “All these things I will give You if You will fall down and worship me.” 10 Then Jesus said to him, “Away with you,[d] Satan! For it is written, ‘You shall worship the Lord your God, and Him only you shall serve.’”

Before the ministry of Jesus began, the devil was there to get him out of the will of God. The only thing Jesus was able to grab a hold on to was the Word of God. When the enemy comes at you, lets take the Son of God’s example, the written Word of the Father was the only way He was going to be able to defeat the devil. Get into the word study yourself approved, so when the enemy comes you’ll be able to say, “It is written…” Before your miracle breakthrough, the enemy will try to get you out of the will of God but we have a promise in the word: Greater is He that is in us than he that is out there in the world. If God is for us who could be against us? Our promises have already been written. Stand on God’s word and tell the devil, “It is written.”

Words, Powerful Words

Image“For verily I say unto you, that whosoever shall say unto this mountain, be thou removed, and thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.” Mark 11:23

Jesus tells us that we believe and speak affects the natural world, including our finances. God has given us his Word so that we can understand theses spiritual laws that govern the universe.  There are spiritual laws just as there are natural laws.  When you work with these laws, they work for you.  When you work against God’s spiritual laws, they work against you.  When you speak negativity about your financial situations, you have what you say and believe.  Here is a very important spiritual law: YOU CAN HAVE WHAT YOU SAY:  With your words you can choose life or death, poverty or riches, sickness or health.  You may tithe (give 10% to the church), work hard and pray for prosperity every day, but if your words are negative and contrary to God’s word, you could stay mired in debt, struggling to make ends meet.  Words are powerful but God’s word is full of creative power.  When you agree with what God has said about you and SPEAK HIS WORD, your circumstances will begin to change and line up with his will for your life.

Wisdom

Image

“1 The proverbs of Solomon the son of David, king of Israel; 2 To know wisdom and instruction; to perceive the words of understanding; 3 To receive the instruction of wisdom, justice, and judgment, and equity; 4 To give subtilty to the simple, to the young man knowledge and discretion. 5 A wise man will hear, and will increase learning; and a man of understanding shall attain unto wise counsels: 6 To understand a proverb, and the interpretation; the words of the wise, and their dark sayings. 7 The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction.” Proverbs 1:1-7 

Thank God for His merciful love, He has loved us so much. Not only is He our miraculous savior, but has also lifted us with his beautiful instruction, so that we may never forget how to live a life that gives Him all honor and glory. “ ” 2 Timothy 3:16-17. Praise God for his amazing word. It can transform our lives if we allow it. No other book is alive. This heavenly message will pull us out of spiritual death, destruction and place us all on the path to eternal victory in Jesus’ name. Allow the Holy Lord of Glory into your life, study the scriptures, and His promises will never fail you.

Prayer

“Lord I pray that you continue to give me a new revelation each day in Jesus’ name. Amen.”

Transformación Espiritual………..

Mas nuestra ciudadania esta en los cielos de donde tambien esperamos al Salvador, al Senor Jesucristo, el cual transformara el cuerpo de la humillacion nuestra, para que sea Semejante al cuerpo de la gloria suya, por el poder con el cual puede tambien sujetar a si mismo todad las cosas. – Filipenses 3:20

Es un anelo enorme, esperar el dia cuando suene la trompreta y que nuestro Dios aparesca en las nubes y que nuestros cuerpos sean transformados al cuerpo de la gloria de nuestro Dios.

Creo que esta parte de la escritura nos impulsa a ser cada dia mejor, a buscar una relacion intima con el senor y a alimentar nuestro esperitu cada dia.

Luchemos como buen soldados de Dios, que nuestra Ciudadania esta en los cielos.

Bendeciones!!!

Standing Strong

Palm Trees“1 Happy is the man who does not walk in the way sinful men tell him to, or stand in the path of sinners, or sit with those who laugh at the truth. But he finds joy in the Law of the Lord and thinks about His Law day and night. 3 “

Psalms 1: 1-3

This man is like a tree planted by rivers of water, which gives its fruit at the right time and its leaf never dries up. Whatever he does will work out well for him.  I feel that that I have always been a very strong person and can hold my own with the help of God. I depend on God for everything that happens in my life. I have a relationship with him and I am consistently talking to him. Sometimes, satan tries to remind me of my past and I have to cry out to God. Help me to withstand him and stay grounded like a tall palm tree in the desert that is swayed back and forth, by the strong winds that come within our uncontrolled environment. People will always try to put me down or laugh at me for my beliefs. God will always be there to comfort me.  I know he will take care of everything. Thank you Lord for all you do for me.

Essential Factor: YOU

“And it shall come to pass in that day, that his burden shall be taken away from off thy shoulder, and his yoke from off thy neck, and the yoke shall be destroyed because of the anointing.” Isaiah 10:27

The time is now! The cause of that pouring of His anointing  is You. The medium that makes it possible is the price of your obedience to the voice of the Savior. Do not over think it, accept it, live it. The abundance of His Glory is within the reach of your faith. It has never been His custom to forsake His little ones. What makes you think you’re alone? He is the same yesterday, today and forever. He said ” we will receive power when the lies come upon us the Holy Spirit … ” Just as there is a false sense of peace, the enemy of our soul will also make you feel a false sense of burden and guilt. Fix your gaze on Him, and walk beyond all heaviness until you reach a region of ANOINTING. Do not settle for anything less than being in the mist of that ANOINTING that destroys he yolk. The best weapon the devil can use against you is convincing you that you are not essential in this process. It is about time your spiritual ears of demand to only hear the voice of the Master.

PRAYER : Thank you Heavenly Father for your faithfulness, for your ever-flowing river of mercies. Your wealth does not dependent on my faithfulness or faith, but your Holiness. Lead me to your obedience, that I may dwell in the sweetness of your ANOINTING .
