By HIS Stripes!

Originally written and published in Spanish on August 15, 2012

It is necessary to understand that when sickness comes in the form of an attack on your body, we have the answer at the tip of our tongue! If Christ is your Savior, if you have confessed with your mouth that He is your Lord, if you have repented for your sins and have given your heart, soul and life to Him then you have all authority and benefit and right to claim His precious blood, blood that restores, transforms and renews, over your body and your life. You have the authority to command your body to align to the Scriptures. Declare over your body each day, that you are healed. Put your hands over the affected areas and declare and pray these Scriptures over your body. No demon of sickness has any power or authority over your body, because your body has been bought and cleansed by the precious Blood of Jesus Christ. By dying on the cross and resurrecting, He conquered death and all principalities... If HE is for us, who can be against us?  He has the authority and power, He triumphed over the cross and the devil pig-dog is under our feet!!! 

I share with you these Scriptures so that each day, you can nurture your body with a Word that is Alive and sufficient to heal. Command that sickness to go out of your body in the name of Jesus! You have the authority.... what are you waiting for?

For even to this were you called [it is inseparable from your vocation]. For Christ also suffered for you, leaving you [His personal] example, so that you should follow in His footsteps. He was guilty of no sin, neither was deceit (guile) ever found on His lips.  When He was reviled and insulted, He did not revile or offer insult in return; [when] He was abused and suffered, He made no threats [of vengeance]; but he trusted [Himself and everything] to Him Who judges fairly. He personally bore our sins in His [own] body on the tree [as on an altar and offered Himself on it], that we might die (cease to exist) to sin and live to righteousness. By His wounds you have been healed. -1 Peter 2:21-24

 Christ purchased our freedom [redeeming us] from the curse (doom) of the Law [and its condemnation] by [Himself] becoming a curse for us, for it is written [in the Scriptures], Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree (is crucified); To the end that through [their receiving] Christ Jesus, the blessing [promised] to Abraham might come upon the Gentiles, so that we through faith might [all] receive [the realization of] the promise of the [Holy] Spirit. -Galatians 3:13-14

For I will restore health to you, and I will heal your wounds, says the Lord, because they have called you an outcast, saying, This is Zion, whom no one seeks after and for whom no one cares! -Jeremiah 30:17

Behold, [in the future restored Jerusalem] I will lay upon it health and healing, and I will cure them and will reveal to them the abundance of peace (prosperity, security, stability) and truth. -Jeremiah 33:6

And the prayer [that is] of faith will save him who is sick, and the Lord will restore him; and if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven. -James 5:15

Surely He has borne our griefs (sicknesses, weaknesses, and distresses) and carried our sorrows and pains [of punishment], yet we [ignorantly] considered Him stricken, smitten, and afflicted by God [as if with leprosy]. But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our guilt and iniquities; the chastisement [needful to obtain] peace and well-being for us was upon Him, and with the stripes [that wounded] Him we are healed and made whole. -Isaiah 53:4-5

And behold, a leper came up to Him and, prostrating himself, worshiped Him, saying, Lord, if You are willing, You are able to cleanse me by curing me. And He reached out His hand and touched him, saying, I am willing; be cleansed by being cured. And instantly his leprosy was cured and cleansed. -Matthew 8:2-3

 When evening came, they brought to Him many who were under the power of demons, and He drove out the spirits with a word and restored to health all who were sick. And thus He fulfilled what was spoken by the prophet Isaiah, He Himself took [in order to carry away] our weaknesses and infirmities and bore away our diseases. -Matthew 8:16-17

Here are more:
Psalms  103:2,3,5
Bless (affectionately, gratefully praise) the Lord, O my soul, and forget not [one of] all His benefits—
Who forgives [every one of] all your iniquities, Who heals [each one of] all your diseases,
Who redeems your life from the pit and corruption, Who beautifies, dignifies, and crowns you with loving-kindness and tender mercy; Who satisfies your mouth [your necessity and desire at your personal age and situation] with good so that your youth, renewed, is like the eagle’s [strong, overcoming, soaring]!

Psalms 107:20
He sends forth His word and heals them and rescues them from the pit and destruction.

Proverbs 3:7,8
Be not wise in your own eyes; reverently fear and worship the Lord and turn [entirely] away from evil.
It shall be health to your nerves and sinews, and marrow and moistening to your bones.

Jeremiah 17:14
Heal me, O Lord, and I shall be healed; save me, and I shall be saved, for You are my praise.

Matthew 4:23,24
And He went about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues and preaching the good news (Gospel) of the kingdom, and healing every disease and every weakness and infirmity among the people.
So the report of Him spread throughout all Syria, and they brought Him all who were sick, those afflicted with various diseases and torments, those under the power of demons, and epileptics, and paralyzed people, and He healed them.

Matthew 8:5-13
As Jesus went into Capernaum, a centurion came up to Him, begging Him, And saying, Lord, my servant boy is lying at the house paralyzed and distressed with intense pains. And Jesus said to him, I will come and restore him.  But the centurion replied to Him, Lord, I am not worthy or fit to have You come under my roof; but only speak the word, and my servant boy will be cured.  For I also am a man subject to authority, with soldiers subject to me. And I say to one, Go, and he goes; and to another, Come, and he comes; and to my slave, Do this, and he does it. When Jesus heard him, He marveled and said to those who followed Him [who adhered steadfastly to Him, conforming to His example in living and, if need be, in dying also], I tell you truly, I have not found so much faith as this with anyone, even in Israel.  I tell you, many will come from east and west, and will sit at table with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob in the kingdom of heaven,
 While the sons and heirs of the kingdom will be driven out into the darkness outside, where there will be weeping and grinding of teeth. Then to the centurion Jesus said, Go; it shall be done for you as you have believed. And the servant boy was restored to health at that very moment.

Luke 4:18
" The Spirit of the Lord [is] upon Me, because He has anointed Me [the Anointed One, the Messiah] to preach the good news (the Gospel) to the poor; He has sent Me to announce release to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind, to send forth as delivered those who are oppressed [who are downtrodden, bruised, crushed, and broken down by calamity]..."

I Thessalonians 5:23
And may the God of peace Himself sanctify you through and through [separate you from profane things, make you pure and wholly consecrated to God]; and may your spirit and soul and body be preserved sound and complete [and found] blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ (the Messiah).

I tell you in the name of Jesus, declare your healing today! Declare these Scriptures over your life, your body, your mind and receive your healing. Christ already did it, He just waits for you to receive it!!

It is my prayer that this reflection be a part of your daily portion.

Portion of Strength

Originally written and published in Spanish on April 12, 2012

It is beautiful to wake up to a new morning with joy and with a song of praise to the King of Kings and Lord of Lords. It is beautiful to come into your Father's presence with gratitude and to be able to open your heart before Him to honor Him, bless Him, love Him, and thank Him and to also ask, seek, wait on Him, declare His promises for your life and to sing to Him. When you come before Him with an open heart, something beautiful happens, He responds and puts Peace in your heart and He speaks to your spirit.

This morning, I want to give you some words of strength and motivation:

But those who wait for the Lord [who expect, look for, and hope in Him] shall change and renew their strength and power; they shall lift their wings and mount up [close to God] as eagles [mount up to the sun]; they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint or become tired. -Isaiah 40:31

Fear not [there is nothing to fear], for I am with you; do not look around you in terror and be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen and harden you to difficulties, yes, I will help you; yes, I will hold you up and retain you with My [victorious] right hand of rightness and justice. -Isaiah 41:10

My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the Rock and firm Strength of my heart and my Portion forever. -Psalms 73:26

But I will sing of Your mighty strength and power; yes, I will sing aloud of Your mercy and loving-kindness in the morning; for You have been to me a defense (a fortress and a high tower) and a refuge in the day of my distress. -Psalms 59:16

In this moment, put your feelings and emotions and how you "feel" to the side and just enter into God's presence, begin to sing and praise Him. He will flood your heart with strength and peace and will give your spirit a fresh Word that will change in an instant, your situation. Declare His love over your life, sing to Him and let Him sing to you as well. 

It is my prayer that this reflection be a part of your daily portion.

Portion of Perseverance

Originally written and published in Spanish on April 10, 2012

In front of my house, there's a tree. On this tree and in front of my house there are always birds flying and walking around and resting around the area. Each morning, I can hear the birds chirping and singing. There are always a few birds there and each bird sings differently. As I pray each morning, I can hear them singing. Today, as I prayed, my spirit began to rest in Christ, in His work on the cross, on His blood that was poured out... And, as I rested in Him, the sound of the birds singing filled my room and I could see the nurturing, tender aspect of God's nature, and I could see how He takes care of His Creation.

It really is interesting to see how those birds are always in that tree in front of my house, during the entire year. Winter passes, the tree has no leaves, it is covered in snow and even then the birds are there. Spring arrives, the tree has grown its leaves, so full that we cannot see much outside the window due to the fullness of the tree. And, there are the birds, they remain singing and flying around.

How difficult it is for us sometimes to rest during a "winter" situation, where it seems like there is no fruit or bloom, everything has died, it is cold and at times lonely; where it quickly grows dark and there are even days where the sun does not appear.  Did you know that even in the middle of winter, the birds still sing? Even in the midst of coldness and darkness, the bird is still in its tree... Maybe you will say that he remains there because he has no where to go; or because he doesn't know any better.  And, yes, that may be a reason. But, I believe that it goes beyond that. I believe that the bird continues to sing and remains in his tree, because he knows that Winter will pass and that soon Spring will be here. Sometimes it's much easier for us to stop fighting when the winter situation comes along, and we tend to hide, hibernate, forgetting where we stand.... but if we let winter come and take our place, we lose all we have been fighting for, and then when spring comes, when the fruit starts to grow, we won't see a harvest because we stopped fighting...

I am not sure if you understand me, but I want to tell you today to not stop fighting, nor get out of your place. You have stood in your place and have lasted there for a long time, you've taken your position and there have been situations and attacks in your life that have wanted to knock you down.  I tell you now, persevere!  Don't give up!  You are so close to your Spring, your fruit will begin to blossom and grow! Maintain your position and stance and sing like the bird. Worship God, praise Him, shout with victory and declare and decree that your season is here. Rejoice in Spring and show your fruit for the Kingdom! You are more than a conqueror in Christ Jesus! Persevere, remain, fight, and remember that the Victory is yours!

In the midst of it all, rest in Christ, He paid it all for you and for me. Come before His presence and rest in Him, find the Peace that only He can give and next time you hear a bird sining, give thanks to God because if He takes care of the birds, He will certainly take care of you and your family and your needs....

Christ purchased our freedom [redeeming us] from the curse (doom) of the Law [and its condemnation] by [Himself] becoming a curse for us, for it is written [in the Scriptures], Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree (is crucified); To the end that through [their receiving] Christ Jesus, the blessing [promised] to Abraham might come upon the Gentiles, so that we through faith might [all] receive [the realization of] the promise of the [Holy] Spirit. - Galatians 3:13-14

Look at the birds of the air; they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father keeps feeding them. Are you not worth much more than they? - Matthew 6:26

Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy-laden and overburdened, and I will cause you to rest. [I will ase and relieve and refresh your souls.] - Matthew 11:28

As you have therefore received Christ, [even] Jesus the Lord, [so] walk (regulate your lives and conduct yourselves) in union with and conformity to Him. Have the roots [of your being] firmly and deeply planted [in Him, fixed and founded in Him], being continually built up in Him, becoming increasingly more confirmed and established in the faith, just as you were taught, and abounding and overflowing in it with thanksgiving.

It is my prayer that this reflection be a part of your daily portion.

Portion of Perspective

Originally written and published in Spanish on March 23, 2012
As I meditated this morning on my life and what's going on, and on the need that we as humans have to know who that we are valuable and loved, suddenly these words came to my spirit and I decided to write them on Facebook:   I want to let you know that God has a purpose for you and that His love is yours, unconditionally!
They seem like really simple words, but they carry a big meaning; so big that at times we tend to forget it! Yes, at times we forget that God's Love is ours, unconditionally; we forget that He has a purpose for us. Our minds and our emotions play with us until at times we get to a place where we think we are useless and we even start to wonder "why am I here", "what am I doing with my life"?  We spend the day with so much on our minds and so many things to do and then, all of a sudden, God pats us on the shoulder and reminds us of His love, of His purpose and of His mercies, which are new each morning. That is when we pause and we realize that in the midst of everything that is surrounding us, we have a defined purpose, and we can begin to bring order to our thoughts and situations and emotions and feelings that want to unbalance us and bring chaos.  
How do I know I have a purpose? Well, because my Daddy did not create me just because, or coincidentally, nor was I an "accident" of my parents. I have great value in my Father's eyes. I have a great destiny and purpose here on Earth because He did not create me without a purpose or without meaning. I know this because since He created me, He saw me.        For You did form my inward parts; You did knit me together in my mother’s womb. I will confess and praise You for You are fearful and wonderful and for the awful wonder of my birth! Wonderful are Your works, and that my inner self knows right well. My frame was not hidden from You when I was being formed in secret [and] intricately and curiously wrought [as if embroidered with various colors] in the depths of the earth [a region of darkness and mystery]. Your eyes saw my unformed substance, and in Your book all the days [of my life] were written before ever they took shape, when as yet there was none of them.  -Psalms 139:13-16
From Creation, God already had a plan. This plan included you and me. When He "sees", it's not simply as you and I see or understand the word to mean.  "See" is examine, study, take time and detail with each gifting, talent and characteristic unique to us, with which He created us. How then is He not to give us purpose when He not only created me, but He saw me and He wrote in His book all the days He gave me even BEFORE I existed. Our Father is a Father of details who doesn't do anything just for doing something. He has a plan and a purpose for your life and it is only through His love and His presence that you will be able to discover that purpose for your life. 
How do I know what my purpose is?  By asking my Father to reveal it to me, to show it to me, to tell me and put ideas and fresh revelation in my spirit to be able to understand what my purpose is. My purpose, just like yours is to make a difference in this world, it's to Worship Him. How we do it is the key. He puts in our hearts the passion and idea and calling to develop our gifting and talents and to put them to His service and use. Talk to your Father today and ask Him to show you your purpose. By doing this, you will understand and begin to experience such great Love that He has for you, a Love that is unconditional that gives you the strength to go conquer your territory, it's yours!  

It is my prayer that this reflection be a part of your daily portion.
