Job 31:2-6

2For what portion of God is there from above? and what inheritance of the Almighty from on high?

3Is not destruction to the wicked? and a strange punishment to the workers of iniquity?

4Does not he see my ways, and count all my steps?

5If I have walked with vanity, or if my foot has hurried to deceit;

6Let me be weighed in an even balance that God may know my integrity.

2 Porque ¿qué galardón me daría de arriba Dios, y qué heredad el Omnipotente desde las alturas? 3 ¿No hay quebrantamiento para el impío, y calamidad inesperada para los que obran iniquidad? 4 ¿No ve Él mis caminos, y cuenta todos mis pasos? 5 Si anduve con mentira, y si mi pie se apresuró a engaño, 6 sea yo pesado en balanzas de justicia, y que Dios conozca mi integridad

Does God really owe us anything? Sometimes, we as people think He does. We owe God everything. I ask You my Father, to keep me and show me the path You desire for me. If I am misled or do wrong in Your eyes, please set me straight. I ask Your blessings my Lord, but most of all, let Your will be done.

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.

Deuteronomy 23:4-5

Because they met you not with bread and with water in the way, when you came forth out of Egypt; and because they hired against you Balaam the son of Beor of Pethor of Mesopotamia, to curse you. Nevertheless the LORD your God would not hearken unto Balaam; but the LORD your God turned the curse into a blessing unto you, because the LORD your God loved you.

porque no fueron a vuestro encuentro con pan y agua en el camino cuando salisteis de Egipto, y porque alquilaron contra ti a Balaam, hijo de Beor, de Petor en Mesopotamia, para maldecirte. Mas el SEÑOR tu Dios no quiso escuchar a Balaam, sino que el SEÑOR tu Dios te cambió la maldición en bendición, porque el SEÑOR tu Dios te ama.

No matter what others try to do against us, if we are walking in God’s will, He will turn cursing into blessing. He loves us. He wants the very best for us. We must allow Him to be our guide and everything will turn out perfect.

Zephaniah 3:1-5

1Woe to her that is filthy and polluted, to the oppressing city!

2She obeyed not the voice; she received not correction; she trusted not in the LORD; she drew not near to her God.

3Her princes within her are roaring lions; her judges are evening wolves; they gnaw not the bones till the morrow.

4Her prophets are light and treacherous persons: her priests have polluted the sanctuary, they have done violence to the law.

5The just LORD is in the midst thereof; he will not do iniquity: every morning doth he bring his judgment to light, he faileth not; but the unjust knoweth no shame.

1 ¡Ay de la rebelde y contaminada,
la ciudad opresora!
2 No escuchó la voz,
ni aceptó la corrección.
No confió en el SEÑOR,
ni se acercó a su Dios.
3 Sus príncipes en medio de ella son leones rugientes,
sus jueces, lobos al anochecer;
no dejan nada para la mañana.
4 Sus profetas son temerarios, hombres pérfidos;
sus sacerdotes han profanado el santuario,
han violado la ley.
5 El SEÑOR es justo en medio de ella;
no cometerá injusticia.
Cada mañana saca a luz su juicio,
nunca falta;
pero el injusto no conoce la vergüenza.

When I read this prophetic scripture, I am considering today’s world and the United States. Could we fit into this? We need to repent and do right. We need to seek the True and Living God! We need to fall down and worship before Him and ask His mercy. It says at the end the unjust know not shame. Do you feel shame when you do wrong, or is it just another thing? Cry out to Jesus and beg His grace and mercy upon mankind!

Isaiah 19:2

And I will set the Egyptians against the Egyptians: and they shall fight everyone against his brother, and everyone against his neighbor; city against city, and kingdom against kingdom.

Incitaré a egipcios contra egipcios, y cada uno peleará contra su hermano y cada cual contra su prójimo, ciudad contra ciudad y reino contra reino.

Those who do not follow the true God will, end up in this condition. They will war with each other. We see it more and more in the world today. They attack and kill each other and God has put hate and enmity in their hearts. There is only one way out: the blood of Jesus Christ. We need to share His blood and watch them come away from hell.

Ezekiel 7:25-27

25Destruction cometh; and they shall seek peace, and there shall be none. 26Mischief shall come upon mischief, and rumour shall be upon rumour; 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 unto them after their way, and according to their deserts will I judge them; and they shall know that I am the LORD.

25 “Cuando llegue la angustia, buscarán la paz, pero no la habrá. 26 “Vendrá calamidad sobre calamidad, y habrá rumor tras rumor; entonces buscarán visión del profeta, y la ley desaparecerá del sacerdote y el consejo de los ancianos. 27 “El rey hará duelo, el príncipe se vestirá de horror y temblarán las manos del pueblo de la tierra. Según su conducta los trataré y por sus juicios los juzgaré; y sabrán que yo soy el SEÑOR.

This prophecy is speaking of right now. People are crying and weeping seeking God. God is speaking, but not with words the people want to hear. We need to turn from iniquity. God is not going to allow us to live on both sides of the fence. It is either God’s way or fire and hell. Praise to our God.

Romans 8:18

For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.

Pues considero que los sufrimientos de este tiempo presente no son dignos de ser comparados con la gloria que nos ha de ser revelada.

We try to consider how Heaven will be and we really have no idea. I see here that it is way beyond our understanding. There is NO comparison to the hardships we face and what God has in store for us. All praise and honor to God! Let His name reign all throughout the Earth. His Son, Jesus will show us the glory if we just trust and know He will.

Matthew 19:13-14

Then were there brought unto him little children, that he should put his hands on them, and pray: and the disciples rebuked them. But Jesus said, Allow little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven.

Entonces le trajeron algunos niños para que pusiera las manos sobre ellos y orara; y los discípulos los reprendieron. Pero Jesús dijo: Dejad a los niños, y no les impidáis que vengan a mí, porque de los que son como éstos es el reino de los cielos.

If we all could be as little children with their awe of God, wouldn’t it be wonderful? Jesus spoke how heaven would be full of children. Think about all the children killed through abortion, abuse and other atrocities. Heaven has many children and they are all before the throne seeking justice. It is so sad that any would be ok with killing children in any way. God’s justice will come and for those who support the abuse or killing of children in any way, you need to seek forgiveness.

Job 31:6

Let me be weighed in an even balance, that God may know my integrity.

que El me pese en balanzas de justicia, y que Dios conozca mi integridad.

Do each of us feel comfortable saying these words? How are our morals and integrity? Will the scales read in our favor when God weighs us? We cannot count the world’s standards of integrity; God’s standards are much different. I pray this also. Please weigh me Father and I ask your forgiveness for the wrongs I have done you.

Hebrews 12:1

Therefore seeing we also are surrounded with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which does so easily ensnare us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us

Por tanto, puesto que tenemos en derredor nuestro tan gran nube de testigos, despojémonos también de todo peso y del pecado que tan fácilmente nos envuelve, y corramos con paciencia la carrera que tenemos por delante

It is easy to get caught up in how we once were and not what Jesus has blessed us with now. People are watching us, but do we watch ourselves? Are we acting and speaking and writing how Jesus would want us to? I needed this today. Thank You Lord.
