Psalm 107:8-13

8Let the mercies of the Lord give glory to him: and his wonderful works to the children of men.

9For he hath satisfied the empty soul, and hath filled the hungry soul with good things.

10Such as sat in darkness and in the shadow of death: bound in want and in iron.

11Because they had exasperated the words of God: and provoked the counsel of the most High:

12And their heart was humbled with labours: they were weakened, and their was none to help them.

13Then they cried to the Lord in their affliction: and he delivered them out of their distresses.

 

8 Alaben al SEÑOR por su misericordia; y sus maravillas para con los hijos de los hombres.

9 Porque sació al alma menesterosa, y llenó de bien al alma hambrienta.

10 Los que moraban en tinieblas y sombra de muerte aprisionados, en aflicción y en hierros,

11 por cuanto fueron rebeldes a las palabras del SEÑOR, y aborrecieron el consejo del Altísimo.

12 Por eso quebrantó él con trabajo sus corazones, cayeron y no hubo quién los ayudase.

13 Luego que clamaron al SEÑOR en su angustia, los libró de sus aflicciones.

 

God makes it so easy. Just like a perfect Father, He just wants you to cry out to Him. He will save you from misery if you seek Him. It doesn’t mean everything will be easy, but with God holding you, He will show you the path that will be best for you.

2 Timothy 4: 2-6

2Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine. 3For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; 4And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables. 5But watch thou in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, make full proof of thy ministry. 6For I am now ready to be offered, and the time of my departure is at hand.

2 Predica la palabra; insiste a tiempo y fuera de tiempo; redarguye, reprende, exhorta con mucha paciencia e instrucción. 3 Porque vendrá tiempo cuando no soportarán la sana doctrina, sino que teniendo comezón de oídos, acumularán para sí maestros conforme a sus propios deseos; 4 y apartarán sus oídos de la verdad, y se volverán a mitos. 5 Pero tú, sé sobrio en todas las cosas, sufre penalidades, haz el trabajo de un evangelista, cumple tu ministerio. 6 Porque yo ya estoy para ser derramado como una ofrenda de libación, y el tiempo de mi partida ha llegado.

Paul was speaking to all of us who know Jesus Christ as our Lord, Savior, and friend. We need to keep with the Word. No matter the circumstance, if we stand on the Word, we will be blessed. Many will fight and argue. Some of us may be hurt or even be killed, but it is the plan of God and no matter what happens, God’s will will be done. Let’s keep fighting the good fight and not lay down.

Isaiah 30:20-21

And though the Lord gives you the bread of adversity, and the water of affliction, yet shall your teachers not be moved into a corner any more, but your eyes shall see your teachers: And your ears shall hear a word behind you, saying, This is the way, walk you in it, when you turn to the right hand, and when you turn to the left.

Aunque el Señor os ha dado pan de escasez y agua de opresión, tu Maestro no se esconderá más, sino que tus ojos contemplarán a tu Maestro. Tus oídos oirán detrás de ti una palabra: Este es el camino, andad en él, ya sea que vayáis a la derecha o a la izquierda.

God doesn’t give up on us like we do ourselves. We wonder sometimes why it seems bad things are happening. Could it be that God allows them to “wake us up”? He puts Preachers and Teachers all around, but do we listen. Are we just hearing what we want to and not what we need to? This scripture is very relevant here and now! Lord, please don’t give up on us even though we are hard-headed. Praise You!
