Nehemiah 13:1-2

On that day they read in the book of Moses in the hearing of the people; and in it was found written, that the Ammonite and the Moabite should not come into the congregation of God forever; Because they met not the children of Israel with bread and with water, but hired Balaam against them, that he should curse them: however our God turned the curse into a blessing.

Aquel día leyeron del libro de Moisés a oídos del pueblo; y se encontró escrito en él que los amonitas y los moabitas no debían entrar jamás en la asamblea de Dios, porque no recibieron a los hijos de Israel con pan y agua, sino que contrataron contra ellos a Balaam para maldecirlos; pero nuestro Dios convirtió la maldición en bendición.

When we obey God, nothing, absolutely nothing can come against us. He will turn every bad meant against us into good. Trust that, He will!

1 Kings 17:1-6

1And Elijah the Tishbite, who was of the inhabitants of Gilead, said unto Ahab, As the LORD God of Israel liveth, before whom I stand, there shall not be dew nor rain these years, but according to my word. 2And the word of the LORD came unto him, saying, 3Get thee hence, and turn thee eastward, and hide thyself by the brook Cherith, that is before Jordan. 4And it shall be, that thou shalt drink of the brook; and I have commanded the ravens to feed thee there. 5So he went and did according unto the word of the LORD: for he went and dwelt by the brook Cherith, that is before Jordan. 6And the ravens brought him bread and flesh in the morning, and bread and flesh in the evening; and he drank of the brook.

1 Entonces Elías tisbita, que era de los moradores de Galaad, dijo a Acab: Vive el SEÑOR, Dios de Israel, delante de quien estoy, que ciertamente no habrá rocío ni lluvia en estos años, sino por la palabra de mi boca. 2 Y vino a Elías la palabra del SEÑOR, diciendo: 3 Sal de aquí y dirígete hacia el oriente, y escóndete junto al arroyo Querit, que está al oriente del Jordán. 4 Y beberás del arroyo, y he ordenado a los cuervos que te sustenten allí. 5 El fue e hizo conforme a la palabra del SEÑOR, pues fue y habitó junto al arroyo Querit, que está al oriente del Jordán. 6 Y los cuervos le traían pan y carne por la mañana, y pan y carne al atardecer, y bebía del arroyo.

God is our provider! When we show faith, He will give us our needs. Just like Elijah, if we do according to what God has planned for us and do not turn ourselves, He will sustain us. We are His and He wants the very best for us.

Deuteronomy 23:4-5

Because they met you not with bread and with water in the way, when you came forth out of Egypt; and because they hired against you Balaam the son of Beor of Pethor of Mesopotamia, to curse you. Nevertheless the LORD your God would not hearken unto Balaam; but the LORD your God turned the curse into a blessing unto you, because the LORD your God loved you.

porque no fueron a vuestro encuentro con pan y agua en el camino cuando salisteis de Egipto, y porque alquilaron contra ti a Balaam, hijo de Beor, de Petor en Mesopotamia, para maldecirte. Mas el SEÑOR tu Dios no quiso escuchar a Balaam, sino que el SEÑOR tu Dios te cambió la maldición en bendición, porque el SEÑOR tu Dios te ama.

No matter what others try to do against us, if we are walking in God’s will, He will turn cursing into blessing. He loves us. He wants the very best for us. We must allow Him to be our guide and everything will turn out perfect.

Isaiah 55:9-11

9For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.

10For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater:

11So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.

9 Porque como los cielos son más altos que la tierra,
así mis caminos son más altos que vuestros caminos,
y mis pensamientos más que vuestros pensamientos.
10 Porque como descienden de los cielos la lluvia y la nieve,
y no vuelven allá sino que riegan la tierra,
haciéndola producir y germinar,
dando semilla al sembrador y pan al que come,
11 así será mi palabra que sale de mi boca,
no volverá a mí vacía
sin haber realizado lo que deseo,
y logrado el propósito para el cual la envié.

 

No matter how much we think we know, or how wise we think we are, we cannot comprehend all God is. We will never completely understand as long as we are here on Earth in our mortal ways. That is why the Holy Spirit is here to help us. If we live in prayer and reading the Word, God will show us our route. May His will be done in our lives.

Isaiah 55:10-11

For as the rain comes down, and the snow from heaven, and returns not there, but waters the earth, and makes it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: So shall my word be that goes forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it.

Porque como descienden de los cielos la lluvia y la nieve, y no vuelven allá sino que riegan la tierra, haciéndola producir y germinar, dando semilla al sembrador y pan al que come, así será mi palabra que sale de mi boca, no volverá a mí vacía sin haber realizado lo que deseo, y logrado el propósito para el cual la envié.

God’s Words are ever powerful and they are doing His Will. It is my faith and His Word that keeps me going. In the end, God wins; as a matter of fact, He already won. When His Son, our Lord, arose from the grave; the war was won. We just need to catch up and realize that. God won–sing joy and praise!!!!

 

 

HAPPY FATHER’S DAY!!!!!!

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!
