Colossians 1:9-12

First, my apologies to you who regularly read and follow this blog. I have not posted for awhile. I will try to get back on schedule. God bless you all.

9For this cause we also, since the day we heard it, do not cease to pray for you, and to desire that ye might be filled with the knowledge of his will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding; 10That ye might walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God; 11Strengthened with all might, according to his glorious power, unto all patience and longsuffering with joyfulness; 12Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light:

9 Por esta razón, también nosotros, desde el día que lo supimos (lo oímos), no hemos cesado de orar por ustedes, pidiendo que sean llenos del conocimiento de Su voluntad en toda sabiduría y comprensión espiritual, 10 para que anden como es digno del Señor, haciendo en todo, lo que Le agrada, dando fruto en toda buena obra y creciendo en el conocimiento de Dios. 11 Rogamos que ustedes sean fortalecidos con todo poder según la potencia de Su gloria, para obtener toda perseverancia y paciencia, con gozo 12 dando gracias al Padre que nos ha capacitado para compartir la herencia de los santos en la Luz.

It is by prayer that we all survive. We think that so many other things keep us surviving, but the fact comes down to prayer. God is our provider, our comfort and our salvation. He is our life force and thru prayer we are moving and living. Let us pray for each other and give thanks to God. That is what we are here to do.

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!

Psalm 36:5-12

5 Your steadfast love, O Lord, extends to the heavens,
your faithfulness to the clouds.
6 Your righteousness is like the mountains of God;
your judgments are like the great deep;
man and beast you save, O Lord.

7 How precious is your steadfast love, O God!
The children of mankind take refuge in the shadow of your wings.
8 They feast on the abundance of your house,
and you give them drink from the river of your delights.
9 For with you is the fountain of life;
in your light do we see light.

10 Oh, continue your steadfast love to those who know you,
and your righteousness to the upright of heart!
11 Let not the foot of arrogance come upon me,
nor the hand of the wicked drive me away.
12 There the evildoers lie fallen;
they are thrust down, unable to rise.

 

5 Jehová, hasta los cielos es tu misericordia; tu fidelidad alcanza hasta las nubes. 6 Tu justicia es como los montes de Dios, tus juicios abismo grande: Oh Jehová, al hombre y al animal conservas. 7 ¡Cuán preciosa, oh Dios, es tu misericordia! Por eso los hijos de los hombres se amparan bajo la sombra de tus alas. 8 Serán plenamente saciados de la grosura de tu casa; y tú los abrevarás del torrente de tus delicias. 9 Porque contigo está el manantial de la vida: En tu luz veremos la luz.

10 Extiende tu bondad a los que te conocen, y tu justicia a los rectos de corazón. 11 No venga contra mí pie de soberbia; y mano de impíos no me mueva. 12 Allí cayeron los obradores de iniquidad; fueron derribados, y no podrán levantarse.

 

This song, or prayer unto God is mighty and sure. God does have us under His wing and in His shadow. He will supply all of our needs when we put our trust in Him. The evil men cannot come against us with God protecting us. We just need to allow Him to be our Lord.

Acts 20:24

But none of these things move me, neither count I my life dear unto myself, so that I might finish my course with joy, and the ministry, which I have received of the Lord Jesus, to testify the gospel of the grace of God.

Pero en ninguna manera estimo mi vida como valiosa para mí mismo, a fin de poder terminar mi carrera y el ministerio que recibí del Señor Jesús, para dar testimonio solemnemente del evangelio de la gracia de Dios.

I pray this same prayer today. There is really only one very important objective in this whole life and that is sharing our wonderful Savior’s Love. All else is vanity and really amounts to nothing. May God help and save us all!

Luke 12:15

And he said unto them, Take heed, and beware of covetousness: for a man’s life consists not in the abundance of the things which he possesses.

Y les dijo: Estad atentos y guardaos de toda forma de avaricia; porque aun cuando alguien tenga abundancia, su vida no consiste en sus bienes.

It is very easy to get caught up in wanting what other people have; that process is not of God. There is more to life than what we have. Its all about Jesus: all of it.

Job 33: 3-4

My words shall be of the uprightness of my heart: and my lips shall utter knowledge clearly. The spirit of God has made me, and the breath of the Almighty has given me life.

Mis palabras proceden de la rectitud de mi corazón, y con sinceridad mis labios hablan lo que saben. El Espíritu de Dios me ha hecho, y el aliento del Todopoderoso me da vida.

Oh that my words also will glorify God at all times. I pray that His knowledge and wisdom envelops me at all times. God is all to me. I hope He is also your everything!

Romans 6:3-4

Know you not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death? Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that just as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.

¿O no sabéis que todos los que hemos sido bautizados en Cristo Jesús, hemos sido bautizados en su muerte? Por tanto, hemos sido sepultados con El por medio del bautismo para muerte, a fin de que como Cristo resucitó de entre los muertos por la gloria del Padre, así también nosotros andemos en novedad de vida.

We are not the same as we were. We have Jesus in our hearts. We are new creatures, not full of sin, but washed in the Blood. Don’t dwell on past, but move forward in Jesus. Lets tell and show others the way; the good news; the Kingdom!

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!

The world leads to believe that possessing more is good. This is untrue. Material goods and piling them up are not the way to have happiness and joy. Sure, some are blessed with more than others, but it can be wrong to want and want. Our want should be more of our Savior. He will provide all we need. If He provides a lot, He is most likely asking you to use those extras to help others. God will show you if you just ask and seek.

2 Timothy 2:4

No man that wars entangles himself with the affairs of this life; that he may please him who has chosen him to be a soldier.

Ningún soldado en servicio activo se enreda en los negocios de la vida diaria, a fin de poder agradar al que lo reclutó como soldado.

Sometimes we think that we need to get so involved in politics and other worldly things, that we lose sight of what God wants for us. God will put the leaders into place, no matter what you do or say. He puts both good and evil in positions for His glory. Our power comes in prayer. We cannot do anything right if God is not for us. Let’s fight the battle God wants us to fight and not the battles we create.
