Ephesians 1:18-23

18The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints, 19And what is the exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of his mighty power, 20Which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places, 21Far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come: 22And hath put all things under his feet, and gave him to be the head over all things to the church, 23Which is his body, the fulness of him that filleth all in all.

18 Mi oración es que los ojos de vuestro corazón sean iluminados, para que sepáis cuál es la esperanza de su llamamiento, cuáles son las riquezas de la gloria de su herencia en los santos, 19 y cuál es la extraordinaria grandeza de su poder para con nosotros los que creemos, conforme a la eficacia de la fuerza de su poder, 20 el cual obró en Cristo cuando le resucitó de entre los muertos y le sentó a su diestra en los lugares celestiales, 21 muy por encima de todo principado, autoridad, poder, dominio y de todo nombre que se nombra, no sólo en este siglo sino también en el venidero. 22 Y todo sometió bajo sus pies, y a El lo dio por cabeza sobre todas las cosas a la iglesia, 23 la cual es su cuerpo, la plenitud de aquel que lo llena todo en todo.

Do we always realize just how much power and might our Lord Jesus has? God raised Him from the dead and gave Him all. He loves us and wants the very best for us. Why don’t we allow Him to work in our lives? Why is our faith so small at times? Trust in Jesus; He can and will do the best for us.

Hebrews 3:3-6

3For He has been counted worthy of more glory than Moses, by just so much as the builder of the house has more honor than the house. 4For every house is built by someone, but the builder of all things is God. 5Now Moses was faithful in all His house as a servant, for a testimony of those things which were to be spoken later; 6but Christ was faithful as a Son over His house—whose house we are, if we hold fast our confidence and the boast of our hope firm until the end.

3 Porque El ha sido considerado digno de más gloria que Moisés, así como el constructor de la casa tiene más honra que la casa. 4 Porque toda casa es hecha por alguno, pero el que hace todas las cosas es Dios. 5 Y Moisés fue fiel en toda la casa de Dios como siervo, para testimonio de lo que se iba a decir más tarde; 6 pero Cristo fue fiel como Hijo sobre la casa de Dios, cuya casa somos nosotros, si retenemos firme hasta el fin nuestra confianza y la gloria de nuestra esperanza.

Christ built the house, and we are that house. The only members of the house are those of us who accept Jesus as our personal Savior and Lord. Confidence and faith are what keeps us going; don’t lose either. The enemy will throw stuff trying to lower your confidence, but know that God using the Son, Jesus Christ, will overcome all.

Psalm 16:7-11

7I will bless the LORD, who hath given me counsel: my reins also instruct me in the night seasons.

8I have set the LORD always before me: because he is at my right hand, I shall not be moved.

9Therefore my heart is glad, and my glory rejoiceth: my flesh also shall rest in hope.

10For thou wilt not leave my soul in hell; neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption.

11Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.

7 Bendeciré al SEÑOR que me aconseja;
en verdad, en las noches mi corazón me instruye.
8 Al SEÑOR he puesto continuamente delante de mí;
porque está a mi diestra, permaneceré firme.
9 Por tanto, mi corazón se alegra y mi alma se regocija;
también mi carne morará segura,
10 pues tú no abandonarás mi alma en el Seol,
ni permitirás a tu Santo ver corrupción.
11 Me darás a conocer la senda de la vida;
en tu presencia hay plenitud de gozo;
en tu diestra, deleites para siempre.

This Psalm speaks just fine without me saying anything. God is our protector, our hope, and our life. Praise Him!

Philippians 1:20

According to my earnest expectation and my hope, that in nothing I shall be ashamed, but that with all boldness, as always, so now also Christ shall be magnified in my body, whether it be by life, or by death.

conforme a mi anhelo y esperanza de que en nada seré avergonzado, sino que con toda confianza, aun ahora, como siempre, Cristo será exaltado en mi cuerpo, ya sea por vida o por muerte.

This also is my prayer, that I be not ashamed as to what Christ has given me. I hope that I can always live up to what He wants from me. If it be life or if it be torture and death, if it glorify God, so be it! Many of us are concerned about being safe and so forth, but where is our faith in being that way? It is the unsafe areas where Christ and the message needs to go the most and we have to let go and let God at times. If we keep our eyes on Him, He will protect us to eternity. Praise You Jesus!

 

 

This song is so true about me; I know it’s all because of Jesus–I should have been dead long ago by the world’s standards–but I am alive because of Jesus!

Acts 24:14-16

But this I confess unto you, that after the way which they call heresy, so worship I the God of my fathers, believing all things which are written in the law and in the prophets: And have hope toward God, which they themselves also allow, that there shall be a resurrection of the dead, both of the just and unjust. And in this do I exercise myself, to have always a conscience void of offense toward God, and toward men.

Pero esto admito ante ti, que según el Camino que ellos llaman secta, yo sirvo al Dios de nuestros padres, creyendo todo lo que es conforme a la ley y que está escrito en los profetas; teniendo la misma esperanza en Dios que éstos también abrigan, de que ciertamente habrá una resurrección tanto de los justos como de los impíos. Por esto, yo también me esfuerzo por conservar siempre una conciencia irreprensible delante de Dios y delante de los hombres.

This scripture has helped me this morning. In the last few days, I have been accused of lying and being a deceiver. I know that it comes from a dark place and these are just accusations trying to break my spirit and my faith. I wish that I could be at my son’s wedding tomorrow, but there is a good reason that delta wouldn’t let me on that plane. I feel God’s overwhelming love all around me and His protection. I pray that my son and his fiance will understand; I pray that all 3 of my kids realize that everything here is about God and only about God. My conscience is clean; I know I did everything in my power to make it happen, even losing $420 in the whole process and not getting anywhere. Will Delta make it right? I do not know. Will my children forgive and understand? I do not know. Does God love me? This is one question I do know—-YES!!! Thank You God!

Philippians 1:20-21

According to my earnest expectation and my hope, that in nothing I shall be ashamed, but that with all boldness, as always, so now also Christ shall be magnified in my body, whether it be by life, or by death. For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain.

conforme a mi anhelo y esperanza de que en nada seré avergonzado, sino que con toda confianza, aun ahora, como siempre, Cristo será exaltado en mi cuerpo, ya sea por vida o por muerte. Pues para mí, el vivir es Cristo y el morir es ganancia.

I too, am not ashamed at all of Christ! Why should we b? The devil will lead you into shame, but Christ leads you into so much better. We should not fear death, Jesus has told us we will rise. Kill me if you must, because I win no matter what. As long as my life is grounded in Jesus, my death will see Him magnified in totality. Praise You Jesus!

1 Thessalonians 4:13-14

But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them who are asleep, that you sorrow not, even as others who have no hope. For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also who sleep in Jesus will God bring with him.

Pero no queremos, hermanos, que ignoréis acerca de los que duermen, para que no os entristezcáis como lo hacen los demás que no tienen esperanza. Porque si creemos que Jesús murió y resucitó, así también Dios traerá con El a los que durmieron en Jesús.

Our faith and our hope tells us that those who have died before us are just sleeping. When Jesus comes again, they will rise and go too. Do we sometimes go overboard worrying about those who are asleep and not those who are still here and don’t know Jesus? Something to consider. Praise You Lord Jesus!
