Portion of Determination

Originally written and published in Spanish on December 17, 2012

When we understand that we have been called to establish the Kingdom of God on earth, when we understand that we will be in constant warfare against the enemy precisely because we were created with a purpose, to enlarge His Kingdom, to establish it and to bring freedom to the oppressed; when we understand that we will face these types of attacks in our daily lives, it is then we realize that we need to fill ourselves with faith and determination, it is imperative! Such faith and absolute determination to be able to conquer certain territories for the Lord. It is necessary to be filled of the Word of God that nurtures us, encourages us and fills us so that we can be conquerors, to be sons and daughters of faith, to be bold and have such boldness that leads us to conquer, establish His Kingdom, heal the sick, bring freedom to the captive...  I once heard a pastor speak of such determination and absolute faith, one that brings us to conquer. A bold faith and determination, which is what God is looking for in His children. A type of faith and determination, that no matter what circumstances are surrounding us, no matter what we perceive in the natural, it pushes us and challenges us to reach those blessings God has, to reach the depths of His heart to receive the answers we desire, to see the call He has placed in our hearts fulfilled.  

Today I want to share with you these Scriptures so that they can raise our determination so that we will be able to see in the spirit and that we can call what is not as if it were... So that we can be a people determined to see God's Kingdom established on earth with signs, miracles and wonders... May we unsettle this world and be agents of change for Christ!

Therefore, my beloved brethren, be firm (steadfast), immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord [always being superior, excelling, doing more than enough in the service of the Lord], knowing and being continually aware that your labor in the Lord is not futile [it is never wasted or to no purpose].
-1 Corinthians 15:58

However, we possess this precious treasure [the divine Light of the Gospel] in [frail, human] vessels of earth, that the grandeur and exceeding greatness of the power may be shown to be from God and not from ourselves. We are hedged in (pressed) on every side [troubled and oppressed in every way], but not cramped or crushed; we suffer embarrassments and are perplexed and unable to find a way out, but not driven to despair; We are pursued (persecuted and hard driven), but not deserted [to stand alone]; we are struck down to the ground, but never struck out and destroyed...  -2 Corinthians 4:7-9

For the Lord God helps Me; therefore have I not been ashamed or confounded. Therefore have I set My face like a flint, and I know that I shall not be put to shame. -Isaiah 50:7

Be strong, therefore, and let not your hands be weak and slack, for your work shall be rewarded. 

And let us not lose heart and grow weary and faint in acting nobly and doing right, for in due time and at the appointed season we shall reap, if we do not loosen and relax our courage and faint. -Galatians 6:9

He only is my Rock and my Salvation; He is my Defense and my Fortress, I shall not be moved. 

 Be well balanced (temperate, sober of mind), be vigilant and cautious at all times; for that enemy of yours, the devil, roams around like a lion roaring [in fierce hunger], seeking someone to seize upon and devour.
Withstand him; be firm in faith [against his onset—rooted, established, strong, immovable, and determined], knowing that the same (identical) sufferings are appointed to your brotherhood (the whole body of Christians) throughout the world... -1 Peter 5:8-9

 Today I declare that your eyes are opened to each attack that the enemy will send to your life, that no weapon that is formed against you shall prosper and that you are filled with determination, passion, boldness to answer your call and purpose for which you were created. I declare that you put much effort in all you do and that you don't faint or lose heart until you see in the natural what you've been seeing in the spiritual.  Get up and conquer! 

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

Portion of Blessings

Originally written and published in Spanish on December 31, 2012

Declaring ALL these blessings over our lives today! May Abba, our Father, fill your life, your family, home, ministry, business, work, job, and church with infinite and abundant blessings and mercies each day of your life!!! Decree and declare these Scriptures over your life each day, as many times as you want... take the Word of God as your Daily Portion and watch how His Word will be made alive and effective in your life.  BLESSINGS!

 For You, Lord, will bless the [uncompromisingly] righteous [him who is upright and in right standing with You]; as with a shield You will surround him with goodwill (pleasure and favor). -Psalms 5:12

Blessed (happy, fortunate, to be envied) is everyone who fears, reveres, and worships the Lord, who walks in His ways and lives according to His commandments. For you shall eat [the fruit] of the labor of your hands; happy (blessed, fortunate, enviable) shall you be, and it shall be well with you. -Psalms 128:1-2

 He who has clean hands and a pure heart, who has not lifted himself up to falsehood or to what is false, nor sworn deceitfully. He shall receive blessing from the Lord and righteousness from the God of his salvation.
 -Psalms 24:4-5

 And I will confirm with them a covenant of peace and will cause the evil beasts to cease out of the land, and [My people] shall dwell safely in the wilderness, desert, or pastureland and sleep [confidently] in the woods.
And I will make them and the places round about My hill a blessing, and I will cause the showers to come down in their season; there shall be showers of blessing [of good insured by God’s favor].
And the tree of the field shall yield its fruit and the earth shall yield its increase; and [My people] shall be secure in their land, and they shall be confident and know (understand and realize) that I am the Lord, when I have broken the bars of their yoke and have delivered them out of the hand of those who made slaves of them. -Ezekiel 34:25-27

 May blessing (praise, laudation, and eulogy) be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ (the Messiah) Who has blessed us in Christ with every spiritual (given by the Holy Spirit) blessing in the heavenly realm!  -Ephesians 1:3

 Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord; we bless you from the house of the Lord [you who come into His sanctuary under His guardianship].  -Psalms 118:26

[No one] for there is no distinction between Jew and Greek. The same Lord is Lord over all [of us] and He generously bestows His riches upon all who call upon Him [in faith].  -Romans 10:12

 Blessed (happy, fortunate, to be envied) is the man whom You choose and cause to come near, that he may dwell in Your courts! We shall be satisfied with the goodness of Your house, Your holy temple. -Psalms 65:4

Oh, how great is Your goodness, which You have laid up for those who fear, revere, and worship You, goodness which You have wrought for those who trust and take refuge in You before the sons of men! 
-Psalms 31:19

And solemnly lifting up His eyes on His disciples, He said: Blessed (happy—with life-joy and satisfaction in God’s favor and salvation, apart from your outward condition—and to be envied) are you poor and lowly and afflicted (destitute of wealth, influence, position, and honor), for the kingdom of God is yours!
Blessed (happy—with life-joy and satisfaction in God’s favor and salvation, apart from your outward condition—and to be envied) are you who hunger and seek with eager desire now, for you shall be filled and completely satisfied! Blessed (happy—with life-joy and satisfaction in God’s favor and salvation, apart from your outward condition—and to be envied) are you who weep and sob now, for you shall laugh!
Blessed (happy—with life-joy and satisfaction in God’s favor and salvation, apart from your outward condition—and to be envied) are you when people despise (hate) you, and when they exclude and excommunicate you [as disreputable] and revile and denounce you and defame and cast out and spurn your name as evil (wicked) on account of the Son of Man.
Rejoice and be glad at such a time and exult and leap for joy, for behold, your reward is rich and great and strong and intense and abundant in heaven; for even so their forefathers treated the prophets.

Behold, I set before you this day a blessing and a curse—
The blessing if you obey the commandments of the Lord your God which I command you this day...

And I will make of you a great nation, and I will bless you [with abundant increase of favors] and make your name famous and distinguished, and you will be a blessing [dispensing good to others]. And I will bless those who bless you [who confer prosperity or happiness upon you] and curse him who curses or uses insolent language toward you; in you will all the families and kindred of the earth be blessed [and by you they will bless themselves]. -Genesis 12:2-3

Blessed (happy, fortunate, to be envied) is the nation whose God is the Lord, the people He has chosen as His heritage. -Psalms 33:12

You shall also decide and decree a thing, and it shall be established for you; and the light [of God’s favor] shall shine upon your ways. -Job 22:28


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

Peace In The Midst Of The Storm

Originally written and published in Spanish on October 29, 2012

Blessings to each one of you.  Today I feel the desire to share with you all, my friends, a few Scriptures that speak of Peace. It doesn't matter what situation it is you are going through, remember that the Peace of Christ is yours!  He gave it to us by giving His life and shedding His blood on the cross, and by resurrecting on the third day.  I say to you right now, get rid of all anxiety and all spirit of torment and pain that wants to come to take away God's Peace! Take that Peace, it's yours, He gave it to you and with that Peace you will conquer!

The Lord will give [unyielding and impenetrable] strength to His people; the Lord will bless His people with peace. - Psalms 29:11

Finally, brethren, farewell (rejoice)! Be strengthened (perfected, completed, made what you ought to be); be encouraged and consoled and comforted; be of the same [agreeable] mind one with another; live in peace, and [then] the God of love [Who is the Source of affection, goodwill, love, and benevolence toward men] and the Author and Promoter of peace will be with you.  - 2 Corinthians 13:11

Now the mind of the flesh [which is sense and reason without the Holy Spirit] is death [death that comprises all the miseries arising from sin, both here and hereafter]. But the mind of the [Holy] Spirit is life and [soul] peace [both now and forever]. -Romans 8:6

Great peace have they who love Your law; nothing shall offend them or make them stumble. 
-Psalms 119:165

You will guard him and keep him in perfect and constant peace whose mind [both its inclination and its character] is stayed on You, because he commits himself to You, leans on You, and hopes confidently in You. -Isaiah 26:3

 And the harvest of righteousness (of conformity to God’s will in thought and deed) is [the fruit of the seed] sown in peace by those who work for and make peace [in themselves and in others, that peace which means concord, agreement, and harmony between individuals, with undisturbedness, in a peaceful mind free from fears and agitating passions and moral conflicts].  -James 3:18 

When a man’s ways please the Lord, He makes even his enemies to be at peace with him. -Proverbs 16:7

 Peace I leave with you; My [own] peace I now give and bequeath to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Do not let your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid. [Stop allowing yourselves to be agitated and disturbed; and do not permit yourselves to be fearful and intimidated and cowardly and unsettled.] -John 14:27

 And let the peace (soul harmony which comes) from Christ rule (act as umpire continually) in your hearts [deciding and settling with finality all questions that arise in your minds, in that peaceful state] to which as [members of Christ’s] one body you were also called [to live]. And be thankful (appreciative), [giving praise to God always]. - Colossians 3:15

 And God’s peace [shall be yours, that tranquil state of a soul assured of its salvation through Christ, and so fearing nothing from God and being content with its earthly lot of whatever sort that is, that peace] which transcends all understanding shall garrison and mount guard over your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.
 -Philippians 4:7

 May grace (God’s favor) and peace (which is perfect well-being, all necessary good, all spiritual prosperity, and freedom from fears and agitating passions and moral conflicts) be multiplied to you in [the full, personal, precise, and correct] knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord. -2 Peter 1:2

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