Isaiah 28: 9-13

“Who does the Lord think we are?” they ask.

“Why does he speak to us like this?

Are we little children,

just recently weaned?

He tells us everything over and over—

one line at a time,

one line at a time,

a little here,

and a little there!”

So now God will have to speak to his people

through foreign oppressors who speak a strange language!

God has told his people,

“Here is a place of rest;

let the weary rest here.

This is a place of quiet rest.”

But they would not listen.

So the Lord will spell out his message for them again,

one line at a time,

one line at a time,

a little here,

and a little there,

so that they will stumble and fall.

They will be injured, trapped, and captured.

¿A quién enseñará conocimiento,
          o a quién interpretará el mensaje?
          ¿A los recién destetados?
          ¿A los recién quitados de los pechos?
 Porque dice:
          “Mandato sobre mandato, mandato sobre mandato,
          línea sobre línea, línea sobre línea,
          un poco aquí, un poco allá.
 En verdad, con tartamudez de labios
          y en lengua extranjera, El hablará a este pueblo,
 al cual había dicho: Aquí hay reposo, dad reposo al cansado;
          y: Aquí hay descanso. Pero no quisieron escuchar.
 Por lo cual la palabra del SEÑOR para ellos será:
          Mandato sobre mandato, mandato sobre mandato,
          línea sobre línea, línea sobre línea,
          un poco aquí, un poco allá,
          para que vayan y caigan de espaldas,
          se quiebren los huesos,
          y sean enlazados y apresados.

Do we actually think we know more than God? We act like it quite often.

God is orderly; He is a God of order. Today’s world may have some wondering, but it isn’t God that has caused the chaos and disorder, it is us humans. It is our greed; it is our jealousy; it is our lying, cheating and stealing. It is our sin.

God will bring us back to Him, and He will do it in what seems harsh ways. He will allow extreme circumstances to make us realize that He is the one who we worship.

Look around at the world and its stresses. It can be fixed, not by judges, juries and executioners, but by we humans falling down and worshiping Jesus. It is through prayer and calling to our mighty God we will be able to overcome.

Time to turn off the tv, the internet and all the other items that are taking away from time with God.

This post is not pointing fingers–well, yes it is…I am pointing the fingers at myself.

We have a great and awesome God who loves and cares for us–Precept upon precept and line upon line, He will bring us back. We can do it the easy way or the hard way–either way

HE WILL!

Ecclesiastes 11:5

As thou knowest not what is the way of the spirit, nor how the bones do grow in the womb of her that is with child: even so thou knowest not the works of God who maketh all.

Como no sabes cuál es el camino del viento, O cómo se forman los huesos en el vientre de la mujer encinta, Tampoco conoces la obra de Dios que hace todas las cosas.

There are those times when we think we completely understand God, and we have the world by the tail. It is usually at that moment when things start to come unraveled and fall apart. Why? Because we don’t have it all down pat! If we did, we wouldn’t be on this Earth. Who are we to question God? Who are we to argue with the way He wants things done? Do we know better? God forbid!

Father God, I ask your Holy forgiveness for the times I think my way is better. Please keep guiding and blessing me. Your way is the only way; the only way to glory and true freedom. Oh Father, thank you for your precious love of me.

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.
Finding Joy Inspirational Movie

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.

Ephesians 6:12

View the inspirational video One Solitary Life by Simple Truths

For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places.

Porque nuestra lucha no es contra sangre y carne, sino contra principados, contra potestades, contra los poderes de este mundo de tinieblas, contra las huestes espirituales de maldad en las regiones celestiales

We must always remember this scripture when we are tempted to argue or debate against people who are lost. We are not battling against people, but against forces that control them. We can only defeat these forces through prayer and the Holy Spirit’s guidance. Give the battle to God, and you will win!

James 1:12

Blessed is the man who remains steadfast under trial, for when he has stood the test he will receive the crown of life, which God has promised to those who love him.

Bienaventurado el hombre que persevera bajo la prueba, porque una vez que ha sido aprobado, recibirá la corona de la vida que el Señor ha prometido a los que le aman.

Trials and temptations will come. If we stand and use God’s Word as the weapon it is meant to be, we can and will overcome. The Crown of Life is within reach. God has given us the tools and the way. Let’s gain life, not death.

Psalm 141:3

Set a watch, O LORD, before my mouth; keep the door of my lips.

SEÑOR, pon guarda a mi boca; vigila la puerta de mis labios.

Sometimes our mouths can speak some very damaging things. Our speech can be a very strong weapon; it must be handled accordingly. If we ask God to help us use our words properly, and to His glory, God will bless us.

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.

Titus 3:8

This is a faithful saying, and these things I will that thou affirm constantly, that they which have believed in God might be careful to maintain good works. These things are good and profitable unto men.

Palabra fiel es ésta , y en cuanto a estas cosas quiero que hables con firmeza, para que los que han creído en Dios procuren ocuparse en buenas obras. Estas cosas son buenas y útiles para los hombres.

Works don’t save us, only the grace of God saves us, but works are a part of what shows when we are saved. God will use us to show unsaved the way to everlasting life. That is why we are to maintain good works. All will work together to fulfill the Kingdom. God is with us if we just listen and obey Him.

Psalm 77:1-3

1I will cry unto God with my voice, Even unto God with my voice; and he will give ear unto me.

2In the day of my trouble I sought the Lord: My hand was stretched out in the night, and slacked not; My soul refused to be comforted.

3I remember God, and am disquieted: I complain, and my spirit is overwhelmed. Selah

1  Con mi voz clamé a Dios, a Dios clamé, y Él me escuchó. 2 Al Señor busqué en el día de mi angustia; mi mal corría de noche y no cesaba; mi alma rehusó el consuelo. 3 Me acordaba de Dios, y me turbaba; me quejaba, y desmayaba mi espíritu. (Selah)

Sometimes it feels like God is far away. He isn’t, it could be we are far away from Him. When we cry out, He hears us. I needed this today, and I believe there are others who also needed this Word. Be quiet and know that God is Lord and will take care of us.

2 Corinthians 12: 9-10

And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ’s sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong.

Y El me ha dicho: Te basta mi gracia, pues mi poder se perfecciona en la debilidad. Por tanto, muy gustosamente me gloriaré más bien en mis debilidades, para que el poder de Cristo more en mí. Por eso me complazco en las debilidades, en insultos, en privaciones, en persecuciones y en angustias por amor a Cristo; porque cuando soy débil, entonces soy fuerte.
