Psalm 13

1How long, O LORD? Will You forget me forever? How long will You hide Your face from me?

2How long shall I take counsel in my soul, [Having] sorrow in my heart all the day? How long will my enemy be exalted over me?

3Consider [and] answer me, O LORD my God; Enlighten my eyes, or I will sleep the [sleep of] death,

4And my enemy will say, “I have overcome him,” [And] my adversaries will rejoice when I am shaken.

5But I have trusted in Your lovingkindness; My heart shall rejoice in Your salvation.

6I will sing to the LORD, Because He has dealt bountifully with me.

1 «Al Músico principal: Salmo de David» ¿Hasta cuándo, Jehová? ¿Me olvidarás para siempre? ¿Hasta cuándo esconderás tu rostro de mí?

2 ¿Hasta cuándo pondré consejos en mi alma, con ansiedad en mi corazón cada día? ¿Hasta cuándo será enaltecido mi enemigo sobre mí? 3 Mira, óyeme, Jehová Dios mío; alumbra mis ojos, para que no duerma en muerte;

4 para que no diga mi enemigo: Lo he vencido: Mis enemigos se alegrarán, si yo resbalare; 5 mas yo en tu misericordia he confiado; se alegrará mi corazón en tu salvación. 6 Cantaré a Jehová, porque me ha hecho bien.

I must admit, I am feeling similar emotions as David was. I cry out to You Father God. We need Your miraculous power to shine forth upon us. Please guide us with Your strong hand and help us in these times.

Ephesians 4:4-6

4There is one body, and one Spirit, even as also ye were called in one hope of your calling; 5one Lord, one faith, one baptism, 6one God and Father of all, who is over all, and through all, and in all.

4 Hay un solo cuerpo y un solo Espíritu, así como también ustedes fueron llamados en una misma esperanza de su vocación; 5 un solo Señor, una sola fe, un solo bautismo, 6 un solo Dios y Padre de todos, que está sobre todos, por todos y en todos.

As times seem very difficult right now, I know that I still must worship and do God’s will. By trusting God, only good will come. If I trust in anything else, it is bound to fail. Yes, there is only one God and Lord of all. He is in three persons, but one. All praise be to God!

Proverbs 26:27

Whosoever digs a pit shall fall in it: and he that rolls a stone, it will return upon him.

El que cava un hoyo caerá en él, y el que hace rodar una piedra, sobre él volverá.

For those of us that have thoughts of revenge or attacking another person in secret, we need to take this scripture seriously. For those of us who have been attacked or certain individuals are devising plots against you, Trust God! Their own devices will come back upon them. When people lie against you, their lies will be uncovered. It may take a lot of time, but God does Justice in His time. His time is the best time. I have seen it and know. Praise His Holy Name!

Jeremiah 18:6

O house of Israel, cannot I do with you as this potter? saith the LORD. Behold, as the clay is in the potter’s hand, so are ye in mine hand, O house of Israel.

¿No puedo yo hacer con vosotros, casa de Israel, lo mismo que hace este alfarero?–declara el SEÑOR. He aquí, como el barro en manos del alfarero, así sois vosotros en mi mano, casa de Israel.

God can mold us and form us, but when we try to do it our way, we become like clay that is damaged and God can and will crush it and start over. If we allow the Master to work us in His way, we will develop into a magnificent piece of art. Don’t fight the Potter, let Him mold you.

Galatians 6:1-2

Brethren, if a man be overtaken in a fault, you who are spiritual, restore such a one in the spirit of meekness; considering yourself, lest you also be tempted. Bear you one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ.


1 Hermanos, si alguno fuere tomado en alguna falta, vosotros que sois espirituales, restaurad al tal en espíritu de mansedumbre, considerándote a ti mismo, no sea que tú también seas tentado. 2 Sobrellevad los unos las cargas de los otros, y cumplid así la ley de Cristo.

We sometimes can be very critical of others faults, not realizing our own. Do we consider that we can fall too? It is ok that we point out, but with love and understanding. God will bless us if we do it His way and not our own.

Job 23:13-17

13But he is in one mind, and who can turn him? and what his soul desireth, even that he doeth.

14For he performeth the thing that is appointed for me: and many such things are with him.

15Therefore am I troubled at his presence: when I consider, I am afraid of him.

16For God maketh my heart soft, and the Almighty troubleth me:

17Because I was not cut off before the darkness, neither hath he covered the darkness from my face.

13 Pero El es único, ¿y quién le hará cambiar?
Lo que desea su alma, eso hace.
14 Porque El hace lo que está determinado para mí,
y muchos decretos como éstos hay con El.
15 Por tanto, me espantaría ante su presencia;
cuando lo pienso, siento terror de El.
16 Es Dios el que ha hecho desmayar mi corazón,
y el Todopoderoso el que me ha perturbado;
17 pero no me hacen callar las tinieblas,
ni la densa oscuridad que me cubre.

God does what He does for our own good. It may not seem so at that moment, but all in all is working together to bring all glory to Him. He loves us and His ways are not our ways. It is in these moments that we must just trust Him.

Mark 9:38-40

38And John answered him, saying, Master, we saw one casting out devils in thy name, and he followeth not us: and we forbad him, because he followeth not us. 39But Jesus said, Forbid him not: for there is no man which shall do a miracle in my name, that can lightly speak evil of me. 40For he that is not against us is on our part

38 Juan le dijo: Maestro, vimos a uno echando fuera demonios en tu nombre, y tratamos de impedírselo, porque no nos seguía. 39 Pero Jesús dijo: No se lo impidáis, porque no hay nadie que haga un milagro en mi nombre, y que pueda enseguida hablar mal de mí. 40 Pues el que no está contra nosotros, por nosotros está.

In today’s world, we see denominations fighting other denominations. All claim Jesus as their Savior and Lord, but are arguing over smaller things. All the while, Satan works his way in as an angel of light. Let’s stop fighting each other and work together in harmony as God leads us. Jesus is the way and the truth; we need His guidance and it is all in the Book: the Bible.

Romans 6:6-7

Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that we should no longer serve sin. For he that is dead is freed from sin.

sabiendo esto, que nuestro viejo hombre fue crucificado con El , para que nuestro cuerpo de pecado fuera destruido, a fin de que ya no seamos esclavos del pecado; porque el que ha muerto, ha sido libertado del pecado.

To know Jesus completely, we too have to be crucified. We have to die. Sin will not have any power over us if we allow ourselves to die from the old ways. Let Jesus be King and Lord and die to the past.

John 18: 36-37

36Jesus answered, “My Kingdom is not an earthly kingdom. If it were, my followers would fight to keep me from being handed over to the Jewish leaders. But my Kingdom is not of this world.”

37Pilate said, “So you are a king?”

Jesus responded, “You say I am a king. Actually, I was born and came into the world to testify to the truth. All who love the truth recognize that what I say is true.”

36 Jesús respondió: Mi reino no es de este mundo. Si mi reino fuera de este mundo, entonces mis servidores pelearían para que yo no fuera entregado a los judíos; mas ahora mi reino no es de aquí. 37 Pilato entonces le dijo: ¿Así que tú eres rey? Jesús respondió: Tú dices que soy rey. Para esto yo he nacido y para esto he venido al mundo, para dar testimonio de la verdad. Todo el que es de la verdad escucha mi voz.

His Kingdom is not here, but it is Heaven. We do not fight for a Kingdom here, but we should be fighting for Heaven. Our fight is not with guns and bombs, but with the Sword of the Word and with prayer. Keep fighting, we must overcome. Jesus reigns!

Daniel 2:19-23

19Then was the secret revealed to Daniel in a night vision. Then Daniel blessed the God of heaven.

20Daniel answered and said, Blessed be the name of God for ever and ever: for wisdom and might are his:

21And he changes the times and the seasons: he removes kings, and sets up kings: he gives wisdom to the wise, and knowledge to them that know understanding:

22He reveals the deep and secret things: he knows what is in the darkness, and the light dwells with him.

23I thank you, and praise you, O you God of my fathers, who have given me wisdom and might, and have made known to me now what we desired of you: for you have now made known to us the king’s matter.

19 Entonces el misterio fue revelado a Daniel en una visión de noche. Daniel entonces bendijo al Dios del cielo. 20 Daniel habló, y dijo:
Sea el nombre de Dios bendito por los siglos de los siglos,
porque la sabiduría y el poder son de El.
21 El es quien cambia los tiempos y las edades;
quita reyes y pone reyes;
da sabiduría a los sabios,
y conocimiento a los entendidos.
22 El es quien revela lo profundo y lo escondido;
conoce lo que está en tinieblas,
y la luz mora con El.
23 A ti, Dios de mis padres, doy yo gracias y alabo,
porque me has dado sabiduría y poder,
y ahora me has revelado lo que te habíamos pedido,
pues el asunto del rey nos has dado a conocer.
