Habakkuk 3:17-19

17Even though the fig tree does not blossom,

and there are no grapes on the vines;

even if the olive harvest fails,

and the fields produce nothing edible;

even if the flock is snatched from the sheepfold,

and there is no herd in the stalls—

18as for me, I will rejoice in the LORD.

I will find my joy in the God who delivers me.

19The LORD God is my strength—

he will make my feet like those of a deer,

equipping me to tread on my mountain heights.

 

17 Aunque la higuera no florezca, ni haya fruto en las vides; aunque falte el fruto del olivo, y los labrados no den mantenimiento; y las ovejas sean quitadas del redil, y no haya vacas en los corrales; 18 con todo, yo me alegraré en Jehová, y me gozaré en el Dios de mi salvación. 19 Jehová el Señor es mi fortaleza, Él hará mis pies como de ciervas, y me hará andar sobre mis alturas. (Al principal de los cantores, sobre mis instrumentos de cuerdas)

 

No matter what is happening around us, if we have our trust in God, He will be our refuge. He will keep us in hard times, but we must always trust Him, showing our faith even in times of prosperity. God has given us all the tools and the way. We must just rely on Him and His goodness will shine.

Psalm 13

1How long, O LORD? Will You forget me forever? How long will You hide Your face from me?

2How long shall I take counsel in my soul, [Having] sorrow in my heart all the day? How long will my enemy be exalted over me?

3Consider [and] answer me, O LORD my God; Enlighten my eyes, or I will sleep the [sleep of] death,

4And my enemy will say, “I have overcome him,” [And] my adversaries will rejoice when I am shaken.

5But I have trusted in Your lovingkindness; My heart shall rejoice in Your salvation.

6I will sing to the LORD, Because He has dealt bountifully with me.

1 «Al Músico principal: Salmo de David» ¿Hasta cuándo, Jehová? ¿Me olvidarás para siempre? ¿Hasta cuándo esconderás tu rostro de mí?

2 ¿Hasta cuándo pondré consejos en mi alma, con ansiedad en mi corazón cada día? ¿Hasta cuándo será enaltecido mi enemigo sobre mí? 3 Mira, óyeme, Jehová Dios mío; alumbra mis ojos, para que no duerma en muerte;

4 para que no diga mi enemigo: Lo he vencido: Mis enemigos se alegrarán, si yo resbalare; 5 mas yo en tu misericordia he confiado; se alegrará mi corazón en tu salvación. 6 Cantaré a Jehová, porque me ha hecho bien.

I must admit, I am feeling similar emotions as David was. I cry out to You Father God. We need Your miraculous power to shine forth upon us. Please guide us with Your strong hand and help us in these times.

Psalm 2:11-12

Serve the LORD with fear, and rejoice with trembling. Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and you perish in the way, when his wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all they that put their trust in him.

Adorad al SEÑOR con reverencia, y alegraos con temblor. Honrad al Hijo para que no se enoje y perezcáis en el camino, pues puede inflamarse de repente su ira. ¡Cuán bienaventurados son todos los que en El se refugian!

I love how long before Jesus came to Earth as a man, David spoke of Him with awe and admiration. We need to understand that God is everything–EVERYTHING. There is nothing more important in our lives than worshiping and serving God.

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!

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!

Psalm 5:11-12

But let all those that put their trust in you rejoice: let them ever shout for joy, because you defend them: let them also that love your name be joyful in you. For you, LORD, will bless the righteous; with favor will you surround him with a shield.

Pero alégrense todos los que en ti se refugian; para siempre canten con júbilo, porque tú los proteges; regocíjense en ti los que aman tu nombre. Porque tú, oh SEÑOR, bendices al justo, como con un escudo lo rodeas de tu favor.

Yes, I can shout for joy! I do trust the Lord, Even though there are tough times and even though there are attacks coming from places I did not realize, I know God has me. It is all in His plan and in the end, GLORY!!!! We should not worry or fret, no matter the circumstances. God has it and I trust Him. Praise You Father!

Philippians 1:15-18

Some indeed preach Christ even of envy and strife; and some also of good will: The one preach Christ out of contention, not sincerely, supposing to add affliction to my bonds: But the other of love, knowing that I am set for the defense of the gospel. What then? only that, every way, whether in pretense, or in truth, Christ is preached; and I therein do rejoice, yea, and will rejoice.

Algunos, a la verdad, predican a Cristo aun por envidia y rivalidad, pero también otros lo hacen de buena voluntad; éstos lo hacen por amor, sabiendo que he sido designado para la defensa del evangelio; aquéllos proclaman a Cristo por ambición personal, no con sinceridad, pensando causarme angustia en mis prisiones. ¿Entonces qué? Que de todas maneras, ya sea fingidamente o en verdad, Cristo es proclamado; y en esto me regocijo, sí, y me regocijaré

Sometimes different “Christians” argue over little stuff. If Jesus is preached and shared, He is the key! Why bicker? It’s all about bringing others into the kingdom and not about doing things by the law. Thanks and glory be to Jesus our Lord and Savior!
