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.

James 2:17-26

17So you see, faith by itself isn’t enough. Unless it produces good deeds, it is dead and useless.

18Now someone may argue, “Some people have faith; others have good deeds.” But I say, “How can you show me your faith if you don’t have good deeds? I will show you my faith by my good deeds.”

19You say you have faith, for you believe that there is one God.f Good for you! Even the demons believe this, and they tremble in terror. 20How foolish! Can’t you see that faith without good deeds is useless?

21Don’t you remember that our ancestor Abraham was shown to be right with God by his actions when he offered his son Isaac on the altar? 22You see, his faith and his actions worked together. His actions made his faith complete. 23And so it happened just as the Scriptures say: “Abraham believed God, and God counted him as righteous because of his faith.”g He was even called the friend of God.h 24So you see, we are shown to be right with God by what we do, not by faith alone.

25Rahab the prostitute is another example. She was shown to be right with God by her actions when she hid those messengers and sent them safely away by a different road. 26Just as the body is dead without breath,i so also faith is dead without good works.

 

17 Así también la fe, si no tiene obras, es muerta en sí misma. 18 Pero alguno dirá: Tú tienes fe, y yo tengo obras; muéstrame tu fe sin tus obras, y yo te mostraré mi fe por mis obras. 19 Tú crees que hay un Dios; bien haces; también los demonios creen y tiemblan. 20 ¿Mas quieres saber, oh hombre vano, que la fe sin obras es muerta? 21 ¿No fue justificado por las obras, Abraham nuestro padre, cuando ofreció a su hijo Isaac sobre el altar? 22 ¿No ves que la fe actuó con sus obras, y que la fe fue perfeccionada por las obras? 23 Y se cumplió la Escritura que dice: Abraham creyó a Dios, y le fue imputado por justicia, y fue llamado: Amigo de Dios. 24 Vosotros veis, pues, que el hombre es justificado por las obras, y no solamente por la fe. 25 Asimismo también Rahab la ramera, ¿no fue justificada por obras, cuando recibió a los mensajeros y los envió por otro camino? 26 Porque como el cuerpo sin el espíritu está muerto, así también la fe sin obras está muerta.

 

There is a lot of meat in this passage. Yes, faith is important, but what are we doing with that faith. Like it says, even demons know that God is real, but they are not saved from hell. Are we bypassing the works? Are we doing what the Holy Spirit calls us to do? Read the passage and let the Holy Spirit work, so that you can work. Do the right things and you will be blessed.

2 Corinthians 5:1-10

1We know that if the earthly tent we live in is torn down, we have a building in heaven that comes from God, an eternal house not built by human hands. 2For in this one we sigh, since we long to put on our heavenly dwelling. 3Of course, if we do put it on, we will not be found without a body. 4So while we are still in this tent, we sigh under our burdens, because we do not want to put it off but to put it on, so that our dying bodies may be swallowed up by life. 5God has prepared us for this and has given us his Spirit as a guarantee.6Therefore, we are always confident, and we know that as long as we are at home in this body we are away from the Lord. 7For we live by faith, not by sight. 8We are confident, then, and would prefer to be away from this body and to live with the Lord. 9So whether we are at home or away from home, our goal is to be pleasing to him. 10For all of us must appear before the judgment seat of the Messiah, so that each of us may receive what he deserves for what he has done in his body, whether good or worthless.

1 Porque sabemos que si nuestra casa terrenal, este tabernáculo, se deshiciere, tenemos de Dios un edificio, una casa no hecha de manos, eterna, en el cielo. 2 Y por esto también gemimos, deseando ser revestidos de aquella nuestra habitación celestial; 3 y si así estamos vestidos, no seremos hallados desnudos. 4 Porque nosotros que estamos en este tabernáculo gemimos con angustia; porque no quisiéramos ser desnudados, sino revestidos, para que lo mortal sea absorbido por la vida. 5 Mas el que nos hizo para esto mismo es Dios, el cual también nos ha dado las arras del Espíritu. 6 Por tanto vivimos confiados siempre, sabiendo que entre tanto que estamos en el cuerpo, ausentes estamos del Señor 7 (porque por fe andamos, no por vista): 8 Estamos confiados, y más quisiéramos estar ausentes del cuerpo, y presentes con el Señor. 9 Por tanto procuramos también, o presentes, o ausentes, serle agradables. 10 Porque es menester que todos nosotros comparezcamos ante el tribunal de Cristo, para que cada uno reciba según lo que haya hecho mientras estaba en el cuerpo, ya sea bueno o sea malo.

Sometimes I find myself wanting to be away from all this world’s problems. The Holy Spirit that Jesus left with us when He ascended to Father God, keeps us striving on. Yes, I would rather be with my Lord, but He has missions for us. It is all about Him–all of it! I will keep working and striving to be right in His eyes…Will You?

Ephesians 3: 16-19

16that he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, that ye may be strengthened with power through his Spirit in the inward man; 17that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; to the end that ye, being rooted and grounded in love, 18may be strong to apprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, 19and to know the love of Christ which passeth knowledge, that ye may be filled unto all the fulness of God.

16 Le ruego que El les conceda a ustedes, conforme a las riquezas de Su gloria, el ser fortalecidos con poder por Su Espíritu en el hombre interior; 17 de manera que Cristo habite por la fe en sus corazones. También ruego que arraigados y cimentados en amor, 18 ustedes sean capaces de comprender con todos los santos cuál es la anchura, la longitud, la altura y la profundidad, 19 y de conocer el amor de Cristo que sobrepasa el conocimiento, para que sean llenos hasta la medida de toda la plenitud de Dios.

If we stay strong in God’s Word and in His Son, Jesus Christ, everything will work in our lives for the best. Sometimes it may not seem the best at the time, but trust God. Months or even years later, you will look back and realize it was the best. God’s love is amazing and He wants His children to have the best of His creations.

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.

Ezekiel 18:31-32

Cast away from you all your transgressions, by which you have transgressed; and make you a new heart and a new spirit: for why will you die, O house of Israel? For I have no pleasure in the death of him that dies, says the Lord GOD: therefore turn yourselves, and live.

Arrojad de vosotros todas las transgresiones que habéis cometido, y haceos un corazón nuevo y un espíritu nuevo. ¿Por qué habéis de morir, casa de Israel? Pues yo no me complazco en la muerte de nadie –declara el Señor DIOS–. Arrepentíos y vivid.

This Word of God is just as alive now as it was then. If we all turn, we can live. God has given us a very simple way, thru His Son Jesus Christ.

Ephesians 4:4-6

4There is one body, and one Spirit, even as also ye were called in one hope of your calling; 5one Lord, one faith, one baptism, 6one God and Father of all, who is over all, and through all, and in all.

4 Hay un solo cuerpo y un solo Espíritu, así como también ustedes fueron llamados en una misma esperanza de su vocación; 5 un solo Señor, una sola fe, un solo bautismo, 6 un solo Dios y Padre de todos, que está sobre todos, por todos y en todos.

As times seem very difficult right now, I know that I still must worship and do God’s will. By trusting God, only good will come. If I trust in anything else, it is bound to fail. Yes, there is only one God and Lord of all. He is in three persons, but one. All praise be to God!

Isaiah 40:8

The grass withers, the flower fades: but the word of our God shall stand forever.

Sécase la hierba, marchítase la flor, mas la palabra del Dios nuestro permanece para siempre.

God’s Word is alive and will never die. We will all die, but His Word goes on and on. His Word is what made all and is all.

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!

Ephesians 3:16-19

16That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man; 17That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love, 18May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; 19And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God.

16 que os conceda, conforme a las riquezas de su gloria, ser fortalecidos con poder por su Espíritu en el hombre interior; 17 de manera que Cristo more por la fe en vuestros corazones; y que arraigados y cimentados en amor, 18 seáis capaces de comprender con todos los santos cuál es la anchura, la longitud, la altura y la profundidad, 19 y de conocer el amor de Cristo que sobrepasa el conocimiento, para que seáis llenos hasta la medida de toda la plenitud de Dios.

Our strength and wisdom comes from God. No school or book can give us the way to manage life. It is a lie to think so! Our breath and being comes from God, and by His Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, we have life, love and liberty. Claim it, for it is yours. All you need do is accept Him. Praise our Holy God!
