Lamentations 3: 31-33

For the Lord will not
cast off forever,
but, though he cause grief, he will have compassion
according to the abundance of his steadfast love;
for he does not afflict from his heart
or grieve the children of men.

Porque no rechaza para siempre el Señor,
 antes bien, si aflige, también se compadecerá
          según su gran misericordia.
 Porque El no castiga por gusto,
          ni aflige a los hijos de los hombres.

No matter what we are going through; no matter what we are facing, God is with us, as long as our trust is in Him. Don’t let circumstances dictate your Godly peace. He provides….Receive.

Job 3

Start Speaking any Language in 10 Days

At last Job spoke, and he cursed the day of his birth. He said:

“Let the day of my birth be erased,

and the night I was conceived.

Let that day be turned to darkness.

Let it be lost even to God on high,

and let no light shine on it.

Let the darkness and utter gloom claim that day for its own.

Let a black cloud overshadow it,

and let the darkness terrify it.

Let that night be blotted off the calendar,

never again to be counted among the days of the year,

never again to appear among the months.

Let that night be childless.

Let it have no joy.

Let those who are experts at cursing—

whose cursing could rouse Leviathan—

curse that day.

Let its morning stars remain dark.

Let it hope for light, but in vain;

may it never see the morning light.

Curse that day for failing to shut my mother’s womb,

for letting me be born to see all this trouble.

“Why wasn’t I born dead?

Why didn’t I die as I came from the womb?

Why was I laid on my mother’s lap?

Why did she nurse me at her breasts?

Had I died at birth, I would now be at peace.

I would be asleep and at rest.

I would rest with the world’s kings and prime ministers,

whose great buildings now lie in ruins.

I would rest with princes, rich in gold,

whose palaces were filled with silver.

Why wasn’t I buried like a stillborn child,

like a baby who never lives to see the light?

For in death the wicked cause no trouble,

and the weary are at rest.

Even captives are at ease in death,

with no guards to curse them.

Rich and poor are both there,

and the slave is free from his master.

“Oh, why give light to those in misery,

and life to those who are bitter?

They long for death, and it won’t come.

They search for death more eagerly than for hidden treasure.

They’re filled with joy when they finally die,

and rejoice when they find the grave.

Why is life given to those with no future,

those God has surrounded with difficulties?

I cannot eat for sighing;

my groans pour out like water.

What I always feared has happened to me.

What I dreaded has come true.

I have no peace, no quietness.

I have no rest; only trouble comes.”

Después de esto abrió Job su boca, y maldijo su día. Y exclamó Job, y dijo:

Perezca el día en que yo nací, y la noche en que se dijo: Varón es concebido.

Sea aquel día sombrío, y no cuide de él Dios desde arriba, ni claridad sobre él resplandezca.

Aféenlo tinieblas y sombra de muerte; repose sobre él nublado, que lo haga horrible como día caliginoso.

Ocupe la oscuridad aquella noche; no sea contada entre los días del año, ni venga en el número de los meses.

¡Oh que fuera aquella noche solitaria, que no viniera canción alguna en ella!

Maldíganla los que maldicen el día, los que se aprestan para levantar su llanto.

Oscurézcanse las estrellas de su alba; espere la luz, y no venga, ni vea los párpados de la mañana:

Por cuanto no cerró las puertas del vientre de mi madre, ni escondió de mis ojos la miseria.

¿Por qué no morí yo en la matriz, o entregué el espíritu al salir del vientre?

¿Por qué me recibieron las rodillas? ¿Y para qué los pechos para que mamase?

Pues ahora yacería yo, y reposaría; dormiría, y entonces tendría reposo,

con los reyes y con los consejeros de la tierra, que edifican para sí lugares desolados;

o con los príncipes que poseían el oro, que llenaban sus casas de plata.

O ¿por qué no fui escondido como abortado, como los pequeñitos que nunca vieron la luz?

Allí los impíos dejan de perturbar, y allí descansan los de agotadas fuerzas.

Allí reposan juntos los cautivos; no oyen la voz del opresor.

Allí están el chico y el grande; y el siervo es libre de su señor.

¿Para qué se da luz al trabajado, y vida al amargado de alma,

que esperan la muerte, y ella no llega, aunque la buscan más que a tesoros enterrados;

que se alegran sobremanera, y se gozan, cuando hallan el sepulcro?

¿Para qué se da luz al hombre que no sabe por dónde va, y al cual Dios ha acorralado?

Pues antes que mi pan viene mi suspiro; y mis gemidos corren como aguas.

Porque el temor que me espantaba me ha venido, y me ha acontecido lo que yo temía.

No he tenido paz, no me aseguré, ni estuve reposado; no obstante me vino turbación.

Should we as Christians be depressed? Should we ever wish we were not born? Should we wish that God would kill us?

Job did!

Job was a man of God, and he wished these things.

Why is it when we have deep despair that some people feel they need to tell us that we shouldn’t because we are not supposed to? Does it say in the Word of God that we shouldn’t feel deep despair? I have never seen it.

It is what we do with these feelings that matters. If we run out and steal to provide, we are wrong. If we try to commit suicide, that is against God’s Word. If we fall on our knees and cry out to our Father in Heaven and our Lord Jesus, Yes, that is what we must do.

God allows us to go through storms and to feel deep despair. We will then realize all we really have is Him. He is the only one who can help…and HE WILL.

If you are feeling deep despair over health, finances, family issues, or anything else, it is ok–tell God what you are feeling. You can have those feelings, but tell God and ask for Him to help.

The next time someone who thinks they know that God and the Bible says you shouldn’t feel these feelings, send them to the book of Job. Ask them if they think they are more of, or even as much as a man or woman of God as Job was. He felt the feelings and voiced it. God listened. Jobs friends tried to tell him the same things your friends may be trying to tell you.

Read the end of the book of Job. The friends were reprimanded by God and Job was blessed immeasurably.

It is ok–you can feel despair.

Philippians 4:11-13

Not that I was ever in need, for I have learned how to be content with whatever I have. I know how to live on almost nothing or with everything. I have learned the secret of living in every situation, whether it is with a full stomach or empty, with plenty or little. For I can do everything through Christ, who gives me strength.

No lo digo porque tenga escasez; pues he aprendido a contentarme, cualquiera que sea mi situación.  Sé tener escasez, y sé tener abundancia; en todo y por todo estoy enseñado, así para hartura, como para hambre; para tener abundancia, como para padecer necesidad.  Todo lo puedo en Cristo que me fortalece

Our contentment doesn’t come from money or material items. It doesn’t come from other people; the only contentment we can have all comes from our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. No matter the situation, I will praise Him and glory in His mercy for us. It is through Him that we have life and love. Praise our wonderful God!

2 Chronicles 34:27-28

because your heart was tender and you humbled yourself before God when you heard his words against this place and its inhabitants, and you have humbled yourself before me and have torn your clothes and wept before me, I also have heard you, declares the Lord. Behold, I will gather you to your fathers, and you shall be gathered to your grave in peace, and your eyes shall not see all the disaster that I will bring upon this place and its inhabitants.’” And they brought back word to the king.

porque se enterneció tu corazón y te humillaste delante de Dios cuando oíste sus palabras contra este lugar y contra sus habitantes, y te humillaste delante de mí, y rasgaste tus vestidos y lloraste delante de mí, ciertamente te he oído–declara el SEÑOR.  `He aquí, te reuniré con tus padres y serás recogido en tu sepultura en paz, y tus ojos no verán todo el mal que yo voy a traer sobre este lugar y sobre sus habitantes.’ Y llevaron la respuesta al rey

This prophecy is as good now as it was then. Who will humble themselves before God? This world and the people have fallen away, but God will save and protect those who fall down and worship Him. He is speaking! Are you listening? Worship and adore our great and mighty God, and you will come through unharmed.

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.

1 Timothy 2:1-3

1I exhort therefore, first of all, that supplications, prayers, intercessions, thanksgivings be made for all men; 2for kings and all that are in dignity, that we may lead a quiet and tranquil life in all piety and gravity; 3for this is good and acceptable before our Saviour God

1 Exhorto, pues, ante todo, que se hagan súplicas, oraciones, intercesiones y acciones de gracias, por todos los hombres; 2 por los reyes y por todos los que están en eminencia, para que vivamos quieta y reposadamente en toda piedad y honestidad. 3 Porque esto es bueno y agradable delante de Dios nuestro Salvador

We have to keep all leaders in prayer. Even if we disagree with their views, it is our responsibility to lift them to God. God puts them in seats of power and He takes them away from power. We must allow Him to guide them. Pray for our leaders and know that God IS in control.

Ezekiel 7:23-27

23Make a chain: for the land is full of bloody crimes, and the city is full of violence. 24Why I will bring the worst of the heathen, and they shall possess their houses: I will also make the pomp of the strong to cease; and their holy places shall be defiled. 25Destruction comes; and they shall seek peace, and there shall be none. 26Mischief shall come on mischief, and rumor shall be on rumor; then shall they seek a vision of the prophet; but the law shall perish from the priest, and counsel from the ancients. 27The king shall mourn, and the prince shall be clothed with desolation, and the hands of the people of the land shall be troubled: I will do to them after their way, and according to their deserts will I judge them; and they shall know that I am the LORD.

23 Haz una cadena, porque la tierra está llena de crímenes sangrientos, y la ciudad está llena de violencia. 24 Traeré, por tanto, a los más malos de las naciones, los cuales poseerán sus casas; y haré cesar la soberbia de los poderosos, y sus santuarios serán profanados. 25 Destrucción viene; y buscarán la paz, y no la habrá. 26 Quebrantamiento vendrá sobre quebrantamiento, y rumor será sobre rumor; y buscarán respuesta del profeta, pero la ley se alejará del sacerdote, y el consejo de los ancianos. 27 El rey se enlutará, y el príncipe se vestirá de asolamiento, y las manos del pueblo de la tierra serán conturbadas; según su camino haré con ellos, y con los juicios de ellos los juzgaré; y sabrán que yo soy Jehová.

This scripture kind of gives a picture of the world today. At some point God will just back away and let destruction fall upon the people. Is that what mankind really wants. Is the only way for mankind to know that God is God, to go through total chaos and destruction? Awaken people! Bow to God, worship Jesus and allow the Holy Spirit to guide and lead you. He is the only way to peace and joy!

Proverbs 26:20

Where no wood is, there the fire goes out: so where there is no talebearer, the strife ceases.

Por falta de leña se apaga el fuego, y donde no hay chismoso, se calma la contienda.

It is gossip that causes the majority of problems. When gossip doesn’t happen, usually most problems soon fade away. Gossip has caused many of the most violent acts in history. Let’s all stay away from that evil thing called gossip.

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!

1O praise the LORD, all ye nations: praise him, all ye people.

2For his merciful kindness is great toward us: and the truth of the LORD endureth for ever. Praise ye the LORD.

1 Alabad al SEÑOR, naciones todas;
alabadle, pueblos todos.
2 Porque grande es su misericordia para con nosotros,
y la fidelidad del SEÑOR es eterna.
¡Aleluya!

All nations must worship and adore Him. God is great and mighty, He loves all and wants us to give our cares to Him. Sing and praise to God almighty!
