Joshua 1: 8-9

https://i1.wp.com/hearingfromjesus.org/wp-content/uploads/2015/04/bible-with-cross-shadow.jpg

Study this Book of Instruction continually. Meditate on it day and night so you will be sure to obey everything written in it. Only then will you prosper and succeed in all you do. This is my command—be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid or discouraged. For the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”

Este libro de la ley nunca se apartará de tu boca, sino que de día y de noche meditarás en él, para que guardes y hagas conforme a todo lo que en él está escrito; porque entonces harás prosperar tu camino, y todo te saldrá bien. Mira que te mando que te esfuerces y seas valiente; no temas ni desmayes, porque Jehová tu Dios estará contigo dondequiera que vayas.

If we maintain studying God’s Word, as it says here in Joshua…Day and Night, we will prosper and succeed. Not necessarily as the world thinks of success, but as God determines success.

Yes, we must stand strong and be courageous. We can not be apathetic and allow satan to push us to the left and right.

May God bless you.

1 Corinthians 12:20-25

But now there are many members, but one body. And the eye cannot say to the hand, “I have no need of you”; or again the head to the feet, “I have no need of you.” On the contrary, it is much truer that the members of the body which seem to be weaker are necessary; and those members of the body which we deem less honorable, on these we bestow more abundant honor, and our less presentable members become much more presentable, whereas our more presentable members have no need of it. But God has so composed the body, giving more abundant honor to that member which lacked, so that there may be no division in the body, but that the members may have the same care for one another.

Sin embargo, hay muchos miembros, pero un solo cuerpo.  Y el ojo no puede decirle a la mano: “No te necesito;” ni tampoco la cabeza a los pies: “No los necesito.”  Por el contrario, la verdad es que los miembros del cuerpo que parecen ser los más débiles, son los más necesarios;  y las partes del cuerpo que estimamos menos honrosas, a éstas las vestimos con más honra. Así que las partes que consideramos más íntimas, reciben un trato más honroso,  ya que nuestras partes presentables no lo necesitan. Pero así formó Dios el cuerpo, dando mayor honra a la parte que carecía de ella,  a fin de que en el cuerpo no haya división, sino que los miembros tengan el mismo cuidado unos por otros.

Sometimes we think everyone in the church should be just like us. What makes us the right ones? Everyone in the church body has their place and their uses. No matter what you consider their downfalls, they are needed. Do we, instead of looking at their downfalls, look in the mirror at our own downfalls? We are one body and the body has many members, none of whom are the same, but we need each other. If you are the nose, you still owe respect to the little finger.

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!

2 Corinthians 12:9-10

And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for you: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather boast in my weaknesses, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. Therefore I take pleasure in weaknesses, 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.

So many times, I find myself trying to be strong and do things my way. I am sorry Lord. I need to rely only upon You and Your Grace and Mercy. I am just a speck of dust, but You have given me life and blessed me. I owe all to You. It is only through God that I have what I have and He will keep me when times are tough. Thank You Father.

Psalm 38:18-22

18For I will declare mine iniquity; I will be sorry for my sin.

19But mine enemies are lively, and they are strong: and they that hate me wrongfully are multiplied.

20They also that render evil for good are mine adversaries; because I follow the thing that good is.

21Forsake me not, O LORD: O my God, be not far from me.

22Make haste to help me, O Lord my salvation.

 

18 Confieso, pues, mi iniquidad;
afligido estoy a causa de mi pecado.
19 Pero mis enemigos son vigorosos y fuertes;
muchos son los que sin causa me aborrecen.
20 Y los que pagan mal por bien
se me oponen, porque yo sigo lo bueno.
21 No me abandones, oh SEÑOR;
Dios mío, no estés lejos de mí.
22 Apresúrate a socorrerme,
oh Señor, salvación mía.

 

This Psalm speaks for itself and it is also my prayer today. We need your help Lord God. Your mercy is greater than anything and we seek Your grace and mercy. Please help Father God.

Ephesians 6:10-18

10Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. 11Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. 12For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. 13Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. 14Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; 15And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; 16Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. 17And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:

18Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints

 

10 Por lo demás, fortaleceos en el Señor y en el poder de su fuerza. 11 Revestíos con toda la armadura de Dios para que podáis estar firmes contra las insidias del diablo. 12 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. 13 Por tanto, tomad toda la armadura de Dios, para que podáis resistir en el día malo, y habiéndolo hecho todo, estar firmes. 14 Estad, pues, firmes, CEÑIDA VUESTRA CINTURA CON LA VERDAD, REVESTIDOS CON LA CORAZA DE LA JUSTICIA, 15 y calzados LOS PIES CON EL APRESTO DEL EVANGELIO DE LA PAZ; 16 en todo, tomando el escudo de la fe con el que podréis apagar todos los dardos encendidos del maligno. 17 Tomad también el YELMO DE LA SALVACION, y la espada del Espíritu que es la palabra de Dios. 18 Con toda oración y súplica orad en todo tiempo en el Espíritu, y así, velad con toda perseverancia y súplica por todos los santos

 

When a person goes to war, they don’t just take a gun and not have on other gear. We are at war against the devil and as a soldier, we must be equipped with every tool our Leader has for us. God has given us all we need to win the battles; are we using it all properly? Daily, the attacks come and they can come from places you least expect. If we follow the guidance given in this scripture, we can stand strong. Thanks be to God for giving us the way and the Truth. Jesus was sent for all of us and we can and will win if we follow the directions given.

Ephesians 6:10-11

If we read His Word, pray and seek Him, He will give us the strength to stand against the enemy. We are at war, don’t assume otherwise. Everyday, every hour, even every minute the devil is tring to knock strong Christians back and down. God’s armor will defend us. It will give us weapons to both defend and attack. It is a battle that must be fought and we know the outcome. God wins!! So don’t give up!

2 Chronicles 16:9

For the eyes of the LORD run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show himself strong in the behalf of them whose heart is perfect toward him. In this you have done foolishly: therefore from now on you shall have wars.

Porque los ojos del SEÑOR recorren toda la tierra para fortalecer a aquellos cuyo corazón es completamente suyo. Tú has obrado neciamente en esto. Ciertamente, desde ahora habrá guerras contra ti.

If we stick with God, He will stick with us! He is everywhere and knows all. It is we who cause wars and death and disease, not He. If God could, He would stop it all, but in doing so, He would take our freewill from us. Pray and have faith; stand with Him and He will stand with you. I just know someone needed this today. Praise our wonderful God!
