Galatians 4:1-7

Now I say, That the heir, as long as he is a child, differeth nothing from a servant, though he be lord of all; But is under tutors and governors until the time appointed of the father. Even so we, when we were children, were in bondage under the elements of the world: But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law, To redeem them that were under the law, that we might receive the adoption of sons. And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father. Wherefore thou art no more a servant, but a son; and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ.

 

Además digo: Entre tanto que el heredero es niño, en nada difiere del siervo, aunque es señor de todo; mas está bajo tutores y mayordomos hasta el tiempo señalado por el padre. Así también nosotros, cuando éramos niños, estábamos en esclavitud bajo los rudimentos del mundo. Mas venido el cumplimiento del tiempo, Dios envió a su Hijo, hecho de mujer, hecho bajo la ley, para que redimiese a los que estaban bajo la ley, a fin de que recibiésemos la adopción de hijos. Y por cuanto sois hijos, Dios envió el Espíritu de su Hijo a vuestros corazones, el cual clama: Abba, Padre. Así que ya no eres siervo, sino hijo; y si hijo, también heredero de Dios por Cristo.

 

It is easy to think we are better than other people, or they may think they are better than us. Money and possessions don’t make us better. Power doesn’t make us better. Nothing makes us better than the other human. We are all children of the Living God. Whatever we have done and whatever we will do will not make anyone better. It just comes down to accepting Jesus as our Lord and Savior, and mind you….that doesn’t make you better than the person who has not yet done that. When we completely realize that, there is a new freedom that only the Holy Spirit can provide.

Jeremiah 51:15-16

He made the earth by His power,

established the world by His wisdom, 

and spread out the heavens by His understanding. 

When He thunders, 

the waters in the heavens are in turmoil,

and He causes the clouds

to rise from the ends of the earth.

He makes lightning for the rain

and brings the wind from His storehouses. 

Él es el que hizo la tierra con su poder, el que afirmó el mundo con su sabiduría, y extendió los cielos con su inteligencia.  Cuando emite su voz, tumulto de aguas se producen en los cielos, y hace subir las nubes de lo último de la tierra; Él hace relámpagos con la lluvia, y saca el viento de sus depósitos.

God is all powerful and we sometimes act as if we have control. We have no control. All is in His hands. As Obama tries to “fix” Syria, we must pray that God does the work. It is not America who needs to “fix” it, God will do the “fixing.” If God’s people will bow to Him and seek His wisdom, all will come out the way it is supposed to. the key is to seek Him. Help others know Him, and we will overcome.

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.

1 Corinthians 9:18-19

What is my reward then? That preaching the gospel, I may deliver the gospel without charge, that I abuse not my power in the gospel. For whereas I was free as to all, I made myself the servant of all, that I might gain the more.

¿Cuál es, entonces, mi recompensa? Que al predicar el evangelio, pueda ofrecerlo gratuitamente sin hacer pleno uso de mi derecho en el evangelio. Porque aunque soy libre de todos, de todos me he hecho esclavo para ganar al mayor número posible.

Our reward is watching more come to the knowledge that their only way to salvation is Jesus Christ. We don’t ask payment, nor goods, we just want Jesus and our Father God glorified and worshiped. We are not masters if we show the way, we are servants. Let’s serve our fellow man.

I want to lift up Father God, those who lost loved ones in the devastation in Moore, Oklahoma. Please comfort them. We do not understand why, but you know Lord. Our trust is in You. Let your Kingdom come.

Luke 10:19-20

Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you. Nevertheless in this rejoice not, that the spirits are subject unto you; but rather rejoice, because your names are written in heaven.

Mirad, os he dado autoridad para hollar sobre serpientes y escorpiones, y sobre todo el poder del enemigo, y nada os hará daño. Sin embargo, no os regocijéis en esto, de que los espíritus se os sometan, sino regocijaos de que vuestros nombres están escritos en los cielos.

If we are disciples of Jesus, we have power. With that power comes responsibility. We do not rejoice in that power, but in eternal life with God. Don’t allow satan or his demons to live above you. Know that you are chosen and you have your name in the book of life. Now go spread that light!

Zechariah 4:6

Then he answered and spoke unto me, saying, This is the word of the LORD unto Zerubbabel, saying, Not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit, says the LORD of hosts.

Continuó él, y me dijo: Esta es la palabra del SEÑOR a Zorobabel: “No por el poder ni por la fuerza, sino por mi Espíritu–dice el SEÑOR de los ejércitos.

Sometimes there is nothing we can do but trust God, pray and let Him do the work.No matter how powerful we may think we are, we are nothing. God is all powerful and we are just dust in comparison.

1 Corinthians 15:24-26

Then comes the end, when he shall have delivered up the kingdom to God, even the Father; when he shall have put down all rule and all authority and power. For he must reign, till he has put all enemies under his feet. The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death.

entonces vendrá el fin, cuando El entregue el reino al Dios y Padre, después que haya abolido todo dominio y toda autoridad y poder. Pues Cristo debe reinar hasta que haya puesto a todos sus enemigos debajo de sus pies. Y el último enemigo que será abolido es la muerte.

The devil has no dominion over us if we believe and trust Jesus Christ! I have heard many say that death has been defeated and yes, Jesus on the cross and rising from the dead defeated it, but we are behind and when He comes in Glory, all death will be defeated. The very last enemy to be destroyed will be death. The Word says it and I believe it. Are you ready? He is coming, and soon.

Jeremiah 51:15-16

He has made the earth by his power, he has established the world by his wisdom, and has stretched out the heaven by his understanding. When he utters his voice, there is a multitude of waters in the heavens; and he causes the vapors to ascend from the ends of the earth: he makes lightnings with rain, and brings forth the wind out of his storehouses.

El es el que hizo la tierra con su poder, el que estableció el mundo con su sabiduría, y con su inteligencia extendió los cielos. Cuando emite su voz, hay tumulto de aguas en los cielos, y hace subir las nubes desde los confines de la tierra. El produce los relámpagos para la lluvia, y saca el viento de sus depósitos.

God is all-powerful. Why do we doubt? Look at His power! I will bow down to Him; in time every one will. Praise You Father God!
