Psalm 102: 1-12

Lord, hear my prayer!

Listen to my plea!

Don’t turn away from me

in my time of distress.

Bend down to listen,

and answer me quickly when I call to you.

For my days disappear like smoke,

and my bones burn like red-hot coals.

My heart is sick, withered like grass,

and I have lost my appetite.

Because of my groaning,

I am reduced to skin and bones.

I am like an owl in the desert,

like a little owl in a far-off wilderness.

I lie awake,

lonely as a solitary bird on the roof.

My enemies taunt me day after day.

They mock and curse me.

I eat ashes for food.

My tears run down into my drink

because of your anger and wrath.

For you have picked me up and thrown me out.

My life passes as swiftly as the evening shadows.

I am withering away like grass.

But you, O Lord, will sit on your throne forever.

Your fame will endure to every generation.

Plegaria de uno que sufre, cuando desmaya y expone su queja ante el SEÑOR. Oh SEÑOR, escucha mi oración, Y llegue a Ti mi clamor.

No escondas de mí Tu rostro en el día de mi angustia; Inclina hacia mí Tu oído; El día en que Te invoco, respóndeme pronto.

Porque mis días han sido consumidos en humo, Y como brasero han sido quemados mis huesos.

Mi corazón ha sido herido como la hierba y se ha secado, Y hasta me olvido de comer mi pan.

A causa de la intensidad de mi gemido Mis huesos se pegan a la piel.

Me parezco al pelícano del desierto; Como el búho de las soledades he llegado a ser.

No puedo dormir; Soy cual pájaro solitario sobre un tejado.

Mis enemigos me han afrentado todo el día; Los que me escarnecen han usado mi nombre como maldición.

Porque he comido cenizas por pan, Y con lágrimas he mezclado mi bebida,

A causa de Tu indignación y de Tu enojo; Pues Tú me has levantado y me has rechazado.

Mis días son como sombra que se alarga; Y yo me seco como la hierba.

Pero Tú, SEÑOR, permaneces para siempre, Y Tu nombre por todas las generaciones.

 

God has a plan. We sometimes just do not comprehend why we face hardships or difficulties, but His plan is true and sure. As we go through difficult times, let’s look upon Jesus and his endurance of the Cross. Nothing we are facing is even close to what He faced.

There is a reason, and our blessings will come. Trust and Faith in the Almighty is our main objective. If we do that, all will be well, because God’s plan will prevail.

Judges 2: 1-3

//

Now the angel of the LORD came up from Gilgal to Bochim. And he said, “I brought you up out of Egypt and led you into the land which I have sworn to your fathers; and I said, ‘I will never break My covenant with you, and as for you, you shall make no covenant with the inhabitants of this land; you shall tear down their altars.’ But you have not obeyed Me; what is this you have done? “Therefore I also said, ‘I will not drive them out before you; but they will become as thorns in your sides and their gods will be a snare to you.’”

El ángel del SEÑOR subió de Gilgal a Boquim y dijo a los Israelitas: “Yo los saqué a ustedes de Egipto y los conduje a la tierra que había prometido a sus padres y les dije: ‘Jamás quebrantaré Mi pacto con ustedes, y en cuanto a ustedes, no harán pacto con los habitantes de esta tierra; sus altares derribarán.’ Pero no Me han obedecido. ¿Qué es esto que han hecho? “Por lo cual también dije: ‘No los echaré de delante de ustedes, sino que serán como espinas en su costado, y sus dioses les serán lazo para ustedes.'”

We often wonder why God allows murders, terrorist activities, and wars. look at this passage; if we as humans would listen and follow the path God tells us to take, all will be well. The Israelites did not follow all that God told them and this is why the world is the way it is. It isn’t all their fault. We all have not listened to God at times and generations to come will pay for our non-adherence. God gave us freewill and in some ways it has made things difficult; not because God gave it to us, but because we use our freewill for greed and our own pride. We all must not blame God…we need to look in the mirror and blame the one who really is at fault. It is my fault Father, and I ask you to step in and fix the screw ups I have made. Praise You God!

1 Timothy 4: 1-8

But the Spirit explicitly says that in later times some will fall away from the faith, paying attention to deceitful spirits and doctrines of demons, by means of the hypocrisy of liars seared in their own conscience as with a branding iron, men who forbid marriage and advocate abstaining from foods which God has created to be gratefully shared in by those who believe and know the truth. For everything created by God is good, and nothing is to be rejected if it is received with gratitude; for it is sanctified by means of the word of God and prayer. In pointing out these things to the brethren, you will be a good servant of Christ Jesus, constantly nourished on the words of the faith and of the sound doctrine which you have been following. But have nothing to do with worldly fables fit only for old women. On the other hand, discipline yourself for the purpose of godliness; for bodily discipline is only of little profit, but godliness is profitable for all things, since it holds promise for the present life and also for the life to come.

Pero el Espíritu dice expresamente que en los postreros tiempos algunos apostatarán de la fe, escuchando a espíritus engañadores y a doctrinas de demonios;  que con hipocresía hablarán mentiras; teniendo cauterizada su conciencia;  prohibirán casarse, y mandarán abstenerse de alimentos que Dios creó para que con acción de gracias participasen de ellos los creyentes que han conocido la verdad.  Porque todo lo que Dios creó es bueno, y nada es de desecharse, si se toma con acción de gracias;  porque por la palabra de Dios y por la oración es santificado.  Si esto propusieres a los hermanos, serás buen ministro de Jesucristo, nutrido en las palabras de la fe y de la buena doctrina, la cual has alcanzado.  Mas desecha las fábulas profanas y de viejas, y ejercítate para la piedad;  porque el ejercicio corporal para poco es provechoso; mas la piedad para todo aprovecha, pues tiene promesa de la vida presente y de la venidera.

It is very easy to get caught up in what seems to be spirituality, but is actually law and stress. Don’t eat that, don’t drink this. Do it this way or follow my way.

The truth is, we need to follow God’s way–Jesus Christ’s way; we need to listen and follow the Holy Spirit. Just because everyone else is being vegetarians doesn’t mean you will get closer to Heaven by doing the same. There is only one way to Heaven–through Jesus’ amazing Grace.

Let God, prayer and God’s Word (The Bible) guide you. Many will try to have you follow their way–it doesn’t mean they are right. There is only one who has it completely right—Jesus Christ our Lord!

Colossians 4:5-6

Live wisely among those who are not believers, and make the most of every opportunity. Let your conversation be gracious and attractive  so that you will have the right response for everyone.

Anden sabiamente para con los de afuera, aprovechando bien el tiempo.  Que su conversación sea siempre con gracia, sazonada como con sal, para que sepan cómo deben responder a cada persona.

Many don’t actually “listen” to our words, they watch our actions. If we act and treat others with God’s leading and wisdom, those people will want to have what we have. Think before you act and speak…better than think-PRAY!

Ecclesiastes 10:1-3

Dead flies make the perfumer’s ointment give off a stench;
so a little folly outweighs wisdom and honor.
  A wise man’s heart inclines him to the right,
but a fool’s heart to the left.
  Even when the fool walks on the road, he lacks sense,
and he says to everyone that he is a fool.

Las moscas muertas hacen que el ungüento del perfumista dé mal olor;
un poco de insensatez pesa más que la sabiduría y el honor.
 El corazón del sabio lo guía hacia la derecha,
y el corazón del necio, hacia la izquierda.
 Aun cuando el necio ande por el camino,
le falta entendimiento
y demuestra a todos que es un necio.

This shows that a person can walk a life of wisdom, but one slip and a foolish action can be held against them forever. We must bow to God and seek His wisdom; His guidance, because we are all just fools without Him. Our wisdom is, in all actuality, just foolishness. I don’t want my life to stink, so I will allow God to have it.

Psalm 69: 13-16

But as for me, my prayer is unto thee, O LORD, in an acceptable time: O God, in the multitude of thy mercy hear me, in the truth of thy salvation.

Deliver me out of the mire, and let me not sink: let me be delivered from them that hate me, and out of the deep waters.

Let not the waterflood overflow me, neither let the deep swallow me up, and let not the pit shut her mouth upon me.

Hear me, O LORD; for thy lovingkindness is good: turn unto me according to the multitude of thy tender mercies.

Pero yo elevo a Ti mi oración, oh SEÑOR, en tiempo propicio; Oh Dios, en la grandeza de Tu misericordia, Respóndeme con Tu verdad salvadora.

 Sácame del cieno y no dejes que me hunda; Sea yo librado de los que me odian, y de lo profundo de las aguas.

 No me cubra la corriente de las aguas, Ni me trague el abismo, Ni el pozo cierre sobre mí su boca.

 Respóndeme, oh SEÑOR, pues buena es Tu misericordia; Vuélvete a mí, conforme a Tu inmensa compasión

This prayer of David is so personal. We need to be personal with God too. He listens and understands. He knows our deepest thoughts and our worse sins. He knows us better than we know ourselves.

Talk to Him. He wants you to.

Oh Father, save us!

1 Corinthians 12:20-25

But now there are many members, but one body. And the eye cannot say to the hand, “I have no need of you”; or again the head to the feet, “I have no need of you.” On the contrary, it is much truer that the members of the body which seem to be weaker are necessary; and those members of the body which we deem less honorable, on these we bestow more abundant honor, and our less presentable members become much more presentable, whereas our more presentable members have no need of it. But God has so composed the body, giving more abundant honor to that member which lacked, so that there may be no division in the body, but that the members may have the same care for one another.

Sin embargo, hay muchos miembros, pero un solo cuerpo.  Y el ojo no puede decirle a la mano: “No te necesito;” ni tampoco la cabeza a los pies: “No los necesito.”  Por el contrario, la verdad es que los miembros del cuerpo que parecen ser los más débiles, son los más necesarios;  y las partes del cuerpo que estimamos menos honrosas, a éstas las vestimos con más honra. Así que las partes que consideramos más íntimas, reciben un trato más honroso,  ya que nuestras partes presentables no lo necesitan. Pero así formó Dios el cuerpo, dando mayor honra a la parte que carecía de ella,  a fin de que en el cuerpo no haya división, sino que los miembros tengan el mismo cuidado unos por otros.

Sometimes we think everyone in the church should be just like us. What makes us the right ones? Everyone in the church body has their place and their uses. No matter what you consider their downfalls, they are needed. Do we, instead of looking at their downfalls, look in the mirror at our own downfalls? We are one body and the body has many members, none of whom are the same, but we need each other. If you are the nose, you still owe respect to the little finger.

John 7:37-38

 

On the last and most important day of the festival, Jesus stood up and cried out, “If anyone is thirsty, he should come to Me, and drink! The one who believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, will have streams of living water flow from deep within him.”

 

 Y en el último día, el gran día de la fiesta, Jesús puesto en pie, exclamó en alta voz, diciendo: Si alguno tiene sed, que venga a mí y beba.  El que cree en mí, como ha dicho la Escritura: “De lo más profundo de su ser brotarán ríos de agua viva.

 

Jesus made it so simple by coming to Earth, but we seem to want to still make it so difficult. All we need do is accept Him and drink of His waters. That is all.

James 1:25

But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed.

Pero el que mira atentamente a la ley perfecta, la ley de la libertad, y permanece en ella, no habiéndose vuelto un oidor olvidadizo sino un hacedor eficaz, éste será bienaventurado en lo que hace.

The law of liberty is not doing what ever we want, it is doing whatever God wants for us. Liberty means freedom in Christ, not freedom in the world. So many have this confused. Confusion is not of God. Live in God’s freedom, not the world’s.

John 16:33

View the inspirational video Finding Joy from Simple Truths

These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.

Estas cosas os he hablado para que en mí tengáis paz. En el mundo tenéis tribulación; pero confiad, yo he vencido al mundo.

There is many stresses and worries in this world. We, as Christians have a huge advantage over those who do not know Jesus. We know that He has beat the world. He has our stresses in His hands and can give us the greatest peace. Are we allowing God’s peace to have the hold on us? If we allow the world to win, we are saying Jesus has no power. It is about faith. Give Him those worries.
