TAKING A STAND AGAINST THE LITTLE THING TO BE STRONG AGAINST THAT BIG THING ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


Version 2TAKING A STAND AGAINST THE LITTLE THING TO BE STRONG AGAINST THAT BIG THING…..By Elena Ramirez

If we cannot take a stand for God, in just a little thing. Like not seeing a certain movie, or not going to a place that is notorious, for sin, or accepting people, in our lives who are bad influences.

What kind of stand is that? How can we stand against the enemy in a big thing, if we are not strong against him, in a little thing?

Folks, we can miss it. I am sad today for I see, the little foxes steal the vines…..

We are the vine, growing with Christ, but if we do not submit to Him, we can be cut off.

Don’t we see that? Again. How can we stand against the enemy in big things, if we won’t submit to God even in little things?

And take a stand against that little thing? We ALL have to see this…

I probably, could write a book on this.  Rebuking.  I have done enough fighting in my lifetime, physical and spiritual to know the tactics of the enemy.  

And the many ways, we should learn to rebuke.  

But, I will for now, just reserve that thought, until I get a prompting from God, or even my readers.  Because I will not move until God gives me direction.  I will not cast my pearls to swine,  and I will not do something this great, without the anointing.  I need to see the favor.  I need to see, the plan of God, directing me, or even someone to give me a book deal.  I need to see the anointing.  

So I rebuke, the obstacles that get in the way of that, even here.

And I guess that leads me to write this, because so many of us as Christians, do not realize the authority, we have in rebuking.  And I see it so clear lately.  

We need to learn…But we need to teach ourselves, through the prompting of the Holy Spirit.

We can get lost, in our own battles, in our own way of thinking.  If we do not utilize Christ as the way, the truth, and life.

Jesus did it.  He rebuked.

AND JESUS REBUKED THE DEVIL: AND HE DEPARTED OUT OF HIM: AND THE CHILD WAS CURED FROM THAT VERY HOUR. Matthew 17:18 King James

And he taught us, that we have an authority in Jesus name.  We have power from heaven above to speak things, into the natural atmosphere, but also into the supernatural atmosphere.

We can rebuke people, thoughts, and it just reminds me, that we do not always battle against flesh, and blood, but authorities in high places.  But the enemy uses people.  So rebuke someone, when it does not line up with the Holy word of God.  I do more then ever! Courage….

But I briefly, want to touch on rebuking in our minds.  You see the battle is in the mind.  What you think is usually the outcome.  And there is some negative thinking out there.  Again, I remind you from a few previous posts, I wrote even here, beware of subliminal messages.  They are all over.  That try to inundate you, to make you feel powerless.  People get some junk out there, and they think its true.  

But does it line up with the Holy word, of a King James bible?

When you have battles in the mind, doubt creeps in.  Fear comes in, IF you let it.  Do you see that key word… “IF”?

Aren’t you tired of being sick and tired?  Not seeing any progress.  I am no longer going to be tired, I am going to do something about it, even if it is just in my mind.  I am not going to give into defeat.  I am not going to NOT believe, so I can make  progress.  

I am not going to believe reports.  If my Bible says otherwise.   I am not.  My bible says, I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me, and I believe it.  

I KNOW THAT I KNOW WHO GOD IS, AND I REBUKE THE DEVIL IN THE NAME OF JESUS, AND BY THE BLOOD OF JESUS I PLEAD!

You have to take captive these thoughts, whatever they may be.  You must bring them to the obedience of Christ.  You must if you want a victory…..

Get the mind of Christ….Not the worlds.  Not another Christian leader, not some pawn of the enemy.  Get the mind of Christ.  But you have to go for it, discipline yourself, and stop being lazy.  

I have faith, in God, truth is, I have not always have had faith in me.  But the beginning is knowing who He is.  Knowing He is not mocked.  How just a little doubt can make you go without.  So I rebuke, doubt.  

I rebuke anything that tries to overwhelm me in my thinking.  I rebuke it.  I kick it away, like a tin can, and say, with the power of God, that tells me I can remove mountains be gone!  This gives me confidence, because greater is He that is in me, then he that is in the world.  

I am not going to give you a books worth of thought, but a seed here.  Which again, may grow into a book.  We will see…

But be mindful of your thoughts.  Be mindful to claim holy King James word.  Be mindful of your words, that stop the progress.  Be mindful of how you treat people.  Or even God….He is not mocked.  He hates pride, but lifts up the humble.  So be careful how you rebuke.  Be careful love is in it….Love of God first!

Be mindful, to obey God, in your prayer, by knowing how to rebuke, remember, Christ told us, whatsoever we bind on earth, will be bound.  Whatsoever we release in his name, will be released.  When you are in that state of sadness, depression, defeat, whatever, rebuke it! 

In the name of Jesus.  

Start taking your authority.  Be bold, be courageous, don’t wimp out!  Don’t have a pity party!  Pick yourself up by your boot straps, put on your armor of God, and rebuke in the name of Jesus!  LEARN!

I humbly admit, I don’t know it all…but I know who God is.  And I know, He can teach me, He has.  But you have to want to learn.  Stop walking around like a zombie.  Stop, just accepting defeat, as the way.  Its not the way of Christ…..

You have an assignment, look up King James scriptures on the word REBUKE.  And then meditate on them, memorize them, gain strength, hide them in your heart for the time you need them…..

 

AND THE LORD SAID UNTO SATAN, THE LORD REBUKE THEE, O SATAN, EVEN THE LORD THAT HATH CHOSEN JERUSALEM REBUKE THEE;  IS NOT THIS A BRAND PLUCKED OUT OF THE FIRE?  ZECHARIAH 3:2 KING JAMES.  

PREACH THE WORD; BE INSTANT IN SEASON, OUT OF SEASON, REPROVE, REBUKE, EXHORT WITH ALL LONGSUFFERING AND DOCTRINE.  II TIMOTHY 4:2 KING JAMES.

AND DAVID WENT OUT TO MEET THEM, AND ANSWERED AND SAID UNTO THEM, IF YE BE COME PEACEABLY UNTO ME TO HELP ME, MINE HEART SHALL BE KNIT UNTO YOU:  BUT IF YE BE COME TO BETRAY ME TO MINE ENEMIES, SEEING THERE IS NO WRONG IN MINE HANDS, THE GOD OF OUR FATHERS LOOK THEREON, AND REBUKE IT.  I CHRONICLES 12:17.  KING JAMES

Blessings, and love, Elena Ramirez

I know, I have written a few things on forgiveness, but I want to take this in a different direction.  And that is learning to release someone in forgiveness, by telling them so.

Have you ever apologized to someone, and you know you made a mistake, and so you apologized, but they did not acknowledge your apology?  They ignored you, or remained silent.  Or still continued blaming you in unforgiveness?

This has happened to me a lot.  And many times, I just walked away sad, because what I really wanted to hear, was I do forgive you.

I learned, to say, I was sorry, at a very, very early age.  I had a strict mom, and I wanted to please her.  Now, I was not a model child by any means.  And I still am not.  Even as a child of God. I make mistakes.  In judgment, I do often in fact.  I pray not to do so, but sometimes, well, I do.  

I pray, God guide me in this, but one thing I have learned, is not to carry any kind of guilt, or condemnation, from myself, or others, or even from God.  So I repent first to God.  Then I apologize to others.  I humble myself, even sometimes, when I am right.  But…

If it does not feel right, I know, as an unction from God to release it.

But there are people, I love, people I admire, people I respect, that may not see it the same way as I do.  

And so what can I do?  But just pray for them myself.

You see, I believe there is a power, in releasing someone in forgiveness.  It takes away pride.  It takes away, any kind of self control in the matter, that can be manipulative, to have someone indebted to you.  I know where that spirit comes, and I get right to the root of it.  It comes from the devil.  

I do not want to be indebted to the enemy in any way.  In even a legal way, where he can accuse me or, try to take my blessings.  I don’t want to be indebted to anyone, nor to myself, in the sense, I want to carry a grudge.  Because if you do not release someone in forgiveness, you will carry a grudge.  

You have not taken the final step, to release that person, from that offense, so you will ponder on it, and you may grow a seed of hate.

How naive we all can be.  By not forgiving someone, or releasing them in forgiveness we have to know what scripture says, and God says if we do not forgive our brother, our friend, etc.  He will not forgive us.  

MATTHEW 6:15 BUT IF YE FORGIVE NOT MEN THEIR TRESPASSES, NEITHER WILL YOUR FATHER FORGIVE YOUR TRESPASSES.  

I don’t want that.  I don’t want that hanging over me.  Its strange, but lately, for whatever reason God has been showing me this….  I have been thinking, or dreaming of people.  I have known in the past.  Those that were even family, or friends, that are no longer friends.  They are not in my life.  And I just have had a sense, God was trying to get me to repent, and to forgive them.  So I have.  I may not have thought, I had not forgiven them.  But you know God knows our hearts better then we do. Now, I cannot contact them, but God knows.  

But, I think we can close the circle, when we have a chance. When we have a chance to ask someone to forgive us, or to even find a person, and say…..I forgive you.  Or say.  I am sorry.  

But I really want to impress upon you, to release them by telling them you forgive them.  As they apologize.  And we all know…

More times, people do not apologize.  Even if they don’t ask for it.  Tell them you forgive them.  Why?  Because you don’t want that garbage in you.  That can grow into hate.  Maybe somehow you will remind them, that this is what God wants for us all.  

What a release, it is.  What power, you feel from heaven, above.  A cleansing.  I cannot explain it.  I don’t know all the benefits of it.  But I look at it as someone who was in chains, and now no longer in chains.

And in order to keep those chains off, I keep forgiving.  I keep asking for forgiveness.  From God and others.  In fact I do this daily, because I still make mistakes.  

You see, I actually do care, and I do want to be accountable to God.  To others.  I want to work out my salvation, clear of unforgiveness.  

I think of how many times, an apology would have blessed me, comforted me, soothed me, and even proved love.  And when I did not get it, a wound, may be healed.  Because I know what God says….

But it is always tender to the touch.  I have enough scars about me, to know this to be true.  So grateful for the armor of God, to quench the fiery darts, even when I am not released in forgiveness.  

I hope this blesses you, much Love, Elena Ramirez

I title this post this way, to make the point.  That I know, that I know, I am a faith helper, to help you, and others in their faith in God.  But I want to make it clear from the beginning.  Its not about me.  Its about God.  Its not about fame, or prosperity or even being acknowledged.  Which can easily begin pride.  

You can know something, but you don’t have to have pride, when you do.  Many times, people will have gifts and callings, and they forget it is a gift from God, and they think its all about them.  They think they are, then superior.  They think, that the ability they possess, is the reason for their success.  Or that separates themselves from other, and makes them better.  Wrong.  Why?  Because first of all God is not a respecter of persons.  

FOR THERE IS NO RESPECT OF PERSONS WITH GOD.  ROMANS 2:11

Well, I want you to know and more then anything else in fear of God, I tell you… God wants to get glory in it.  

I AM THE LORD:  THAT IS MY NAME:  AND MY GLORY WILL I NOT GIVE TO ANOTHER, NEITHER MY PRAISE TO GRAVEN IMAGES.  Isaiah 42:8

And, anything, I do to help you in your faith.  Because again, God has gifted me, for His glory, is to show you His ways.  So He can be glorified.  And truly He does deserve glory, for all of the wondrous things He can do.  And does.  For His creation, for His power, for His healing abilities, and so much more.  For He gives life, and He can take it away.  His ways, are not like our ways.  

FOR MY THOUGHTS ARE NOT YOUR THOUGHTS, NEITHER ARE YOUR WAYS, MY WAYS, SAITH THE LORD.  Isaiah 55:8.

So, how do we begin, to get Gods thoughts?  How do we begin to get His ways?  I believe with all my heart, it begins with the bible we use.  You see, the King James is old, and has been preserved.  For over 400 years.  God knew.  Just this century men, and publishers began playing with the Holy word, and changed it.  They disregarded the warnings.  But we can see the warnings from the King James.  To get Gods thoughts.  To get His ways.  And I think if we begin to see that, we can begin to have faith.  

We live in a world, where faith, is not always encouraged.  If it was, everyone would be talking about who God is.  They would acknowledge Him.  They would not deny Him.  

Just recently, I saw a motivational speaker, talking, about the abilities people have to get success, or to make a difference in this world.  And this person, did have a sense about him to inspire.  To motivate, with good ideas.  But there was one thing missing.  And that was the foundation of knowing God.  And bringing God into the conversation.  Without that foundation of God, we have nothing to stand on.  

You see, without God, we are missing the point.  We are missing, the truth in why we are created.  Our thoughts, become empty, humanistic, without, seeing our whole being, really does depend on who God is, and who He is in our life.  We become self absorbed, but that can be cold.  That can be empty, without the spark that God can give, and because of who He is.  I wrote more about that in my page above, entitled “Conversations.”  Where I was discussing it with someone.  

Anyway, we all need help.  There are times, we have to come to the bottom of the barrel, if we do not make God a priority.  Life is not easy.  And when there is an enemy, who Christ warned us about, who comes to kill, steal, and destroy.  Without God in ones life, we can fall.  We can be our own worst enemy, because we have not make Christ, the way, the truth, and the life.  

But there are things we have to begin to do.  We have to develop our faith.  This is why I wrote my book.  “HOW TO HAVE FAITH”   By Elena Ramirez.  http://howtohavefaith.wordpress.com  

There are things, I have learned, by trial and error, as well with success, how to develop my own faith.  But you have to try.  

If you deny God, you deny the only true chance, to be the best you can be.  With or without gifts and callings, if God is not the foundation of your life, your life, will truly not meet its potential.  

Once you stop denying God, and start searching for Him, you are then on the road, to make Christ the way, the truth, and the life.  You also though, have to have good doctrine.  And this is so very, very vital, to finding out who God is, but also hearing His voice clearly.  To have the mind of Christ.  

I say this, again, and again, because there are many bible versions out there but they have been corrupted, by the revisions, and changes.  The voice that comes from the King James bible, is the voice that is spoken by the Holy spirit.  But if you make changes to that, you will not hear Gods voice, but the voice of some publisher, or dude, or dudette, who changed it.  And that voice from its origin, is not the voice of God, but the voice of the enemy, the devil.  And this is where the deception is.  I know along with this more then anything, you have to be careful, in which bible you choose.  

Not only do I warn you.  But you must know, according to scripture, we are warned, not to change, add, or delete it.  The most strongest warning comes from Revelation 22:18-19 and this warns one could actually lose their salvation.  Please see it. 

I do recommend the King James.  

So pray my friends, draw close to God, learn who God is.  Seek Him.  Seek to obey Him.   Be thankful to God.  This is also a very important key.  We can overlook.  Start appreciating and thanking God, for every little thing.  Even if it is little.  Little things grow.  Look at it as seeds.  

I do want to help your faith grow.  I do want to help you.  But you have your part.  If you deny truth, if you deny true instruction.  You will not get the results you long for.  

You see, you have gifts, and callings yourself, that can bring glory to God.  But if you do not get this right, even here to begin with, you will not meet your full potential.  You will miss it.  

You could miss it so much, you could lose your Salvation, because you were deceived.  Heaven and Hell are real.  But if you do not search for truth to find heaven, Gods way, you could be your own enemy, and make hell on earth your reality, and future after death as well.  

This is very important to see.  Because sometimes, we are given chances, but if we do not do what is right, we can set the plan for even eternity.  You do not want to miss it.  

So, I pray, you are inspired, to talk about God, search for God, and truly sense with Him, and in Him, you can meet your potential.  Studying Gods word, your King James Bible, and hiding it in your heart, will produce the fruit that gives evidence to your own faith. 

Blessings, and love, Elena Ramirez

LOVE FILLING THE VOID IN LIFE ~ BY CHRISTIAN AUTHOR ELENA RAMIREZ


If your interested in learning love principles, that will help your faith.  My book, could help you.  http://howtohavefaith.wordpress.com

If your interested in learning love principles, that will help your faith. My book, could help you. http://howtohavefaith.wordpress.com

Love….I sense in my spirit, that the Lord is longing to draw us closer to His throne.  To have a sweeter, and deeper relationship with Him.  To know Him, to see His power, and His glory revealed.   To have more of a personal relationship with Him.  To know true love.

There is a void, that we all have, if we are not close to Him.  If we deny Him, or if we do not work at this relationship of love.  For you see, it is a relationship.

It is not one-sided.  He has done His part, in so many ways, by revealing to us, a savior, and that is Jesus Christ.

God is a King, the King of Kings, and a King, does not have to do things according to what people expect, but we are to do things according to what He expects.

Merciful, and kind, loving, He reveals Himself to us in a sunrise, a sunset, a bird, a flower, a healing, an after thought, a miracle….

Yet, I believe He is ready to step out and do more, and reveal more.  If we only believe.  If we only obey.  If we only take what He has given to us, and we honor it.  We hold it as precious.  We do not abuse, this gift called grace.  For we know it came at such a great price of our Lord Jesus.

Hungry, and thirsty for our savior, will cause us to be fed, and to fill that void in our life.  Searching even “how” to love Him. Even through the good times.  Sometimes, the bad times, the times, where it seems He does not answer you, makes you realize, who He is.  It makes you realize, how important it is to get it right according to His standards.

You know the scripture says, we reap what we sow.  So you see, what you have done, in the past, to even get you to where you are now.

Nothing fills that void, like being near Him.  Nothing fills that void, if you have done something that will cause His holy spirit to be grieved.  But love, love will keep you.  Love will remind you, by the Holy spirit, not to grieve Him.

He says be Holy, for He is holy.  How can we, when we let other things get in the way of our relationship?  How can we, if we choose not to obey?  If we choose the ways of the world?

There is no way.   Only Christ is that way, the truth, and life.  If we would only see, with our spiritual eyes, and heart, how precious our Lords love is.

This is not about religion!  Please, no matter what you have been taught, please know, God is real.  But He does have His ways, His expectations.  His standard…..His love….

We are on the vine with Christ.  But, we cannot not bear fruit for Him.  We cannot withhold love, or withhold praise to Him.  We have to constantly be in a place, where we are loving Him, seeking Him, being obedient to Him, serving Him, serving others, walking in love.

Growing!  Not complacent, not passive, not quiet, not burying our talents in the ground, and not watering them so they can grow.

No we have to constantly be in a place, where we are yes hungry and for Him, for the King.  Being an expression of love.

Dear one, I just know, that we must seek God, we must let Him fill that void in our life.  Life is not life without Christ.

If you are not sure, how to find Christ, just call on Him, do some soul searching, some searching of King James scripture, and look for the holiness, and the authenticity of a real relationship, based on love.  I pray you find it.

I pray I do too.  I never want to lose this sense, of giving Him praise and glory.  I never want to lose this great love I have for Him.  But I have to do my part.  I have to nurture this love.  With Him, with others, and I cannot let other priorities, or success, or even failure, get in the way of that.

Finding my balance, finding my place, to always be near Him to fill that void, is my responsibility.  And I take it to heart.  I take it to understand, this thing of being fulfilled in life requires my part, and I know, nothing else can take the place of my Lord.

Nothing, so I guard my heart, with all that I can, to please Him.  I felt led to share this today,

I pray you are inspired as well.  May you see, how important it is to let Christ fill that void in your life.

Blessings, and love, Today is Valentines Day. (2014) Lots to do, but love has to be the priority.  Even as I write this.  I pray, you sense, and know how much God loves you, and you sense and know how much you love God.  Love never fails…

It may just begin, by repenting, and accepting Christ as your Lord and savior.  Even if you have done that before, but you sinned, clean the slate.  Love….

Just my Thoughts, Elena Ramirez

For in Jesus Christ neither circumicision availeth anything, nor uncircumcision but faith which worketh by love.  Galatians 5:6

THE FEAR OF GOD ~ DO YOU HAVE IT? BY CHRISTIAN AUTHOR ELENA RAMIREZ

HOW TO HAVE FAITH ORDER THE BOOK HERE….
http://howtohavefaith.wordpress.com

 

THE FEAR OF GOD DO YOU HAVE IT?

I want to talk a bit, about the fear of God. Not many people, like this idea of being afraid of God. And I am not just talking about reverence or respect. I am talking about fearing Him.

To some this is just absurd. I know, because I have talked to people about this before, and some of the answers I get amazes me, and I hear things like, I am not afraid of God, I love Him, He is my savior. Yes, I love God, too, and yes, He is my savior, but….I fear Him.

Throughout the King James Bible, there are scriptures that attest to having fear of Him. And even as I thought about this, I knew, I had to run to my computer, and capture this thought, yes, even in fear of Him, to be obedient.

It’s easy for our hearts to get cold, indifferent, and when we do, we have to see this, and stir our hearts back up. Disciplining ourselves….This is why, I try, whenever I can, to give Him glory, or to acknowledge Him, or to defend that which is right, against the wrong. I don’t want evil to think
they can manipulate situations, or to silence me, when I have all of my being because of God and His mercy.

So the fear of God, makes me sometimes be bold, makes me stronger, gives me courage…..why? Because someday, I will stand before God. Someday, when it is all said and done, the book of life will be opened, and God and I will see all that I did. The lambs book of life, will be opened, and it will also reveal I gave my heart to Christ. So, when these books are opened, I want my heart to reflect, that I “disciplined” myself to have this fear…

This fear, keeps me away from sin, it keeps me mindful, that we reap what we sow, and that God is not mocked. Galatians 6:7. I hope this inspires you somewhat, to understand, what I mean from this…..no one cannot tell you what to do! But God, in His spirit, can make a way for you to understand. And if you choose to fear Him, the blessings are more than can be counted….

THE FEAR OF THE LORD, IS THE BEGINNING OF KNOWLEDGE; BUT FOOLS DESPISE WISDOM AND INSTRUCTION. PROVERBS 1:7.

REVENGE WHAT DOES GOD SAY ABOUT IT?


Recompense to no man evil for evil. Provide things honest in the sight of all men.  If it be possible as lieth in you, live peaceably with all men.  Dearly beloved avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath for it is written vengeance is mine I will repay saith the Lord. Romans 12:17-19

A strong warning, knowing God wants us to be aware first, that we are not to repay someone else, with evil, for the evil they have given you.  

Are you struggling with this?  Are you so close to the verge of wanting to let someone have it back, and you are contemplating revenge?  

You are in a dangerous place if you are.  So you are angry?  Well remember this as well.  

Ephesians 4:26-27

Be ye angry and sin not let not the sun go down on your wrath give no place to the devil. 

So that means you are called to forgive.  The word tells us, we are to forgive.  

Mark 11:25-26.

And when ye stand praying, forgive, if ye have ought against any; that your Father also which is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses.  But if ye do not forgive, neither will your Father which is in heaven forgive your trespasses. 

It is hard sometimes, but if we have gotten to the place, where we are listening to the devil, and with our emotions, conceiving the sin in our hearts, it can actually turn into something, you would regret.  This is a time, to be reminded we have to take it to the obedience of Christ.  

II Corinthians 10:5-6

Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ; And having in a readiness to revenge all disobedience, when your obedience is fulfilled. 

Do you see that last part about revenging yourself to be obedient, instead of disobedient?  That is where God, will bless you, and take vengeance on your enemy for you.  So be obedient to God.

We need to have a mindset, a natural obedience, to believe God, and to bring this to the obedience of Christ.  Bring it to the cross.  Remember what Christ has done for you.  To set you free.  Don’t let the devil tempt you into this.  

One because you could do something, you would regret, but more importantly, God would see this, and you do not want to be judged for taking matters into your own hand, where here he tells you vengeance, is mine.  I will repay.  He will take care of it.  You are precious to God.  He loves you.

Reacting from our emotions, in any situation, is really very dangerous.  As we mature in Christ, we can let the Holy spirit, kick in, and take control.  Can you imagine, how many jail cells would be empty, if people, would heed what the word of God says, about forgiving, about not taking matters into our own hands?  Forgiving, is for our own good.  Someone once said, in passing, not forgiving, is like taking, poison yourself, and expecting the person, who did you wrong to die.  Its just not going to happen.  Instead you would be poisoned.  

Do you really want them or anyone to have that kind of an affect on you, for the rest of your life?  Let it go….

Vengeance is mine, saith the Lord.  He will deal with them.  He certainly, does not need your contribution in this matter, and He can take care of things himself.  He has a way, of making things turn around.  But you have your part.  

You have to give it to him, trust him, walk away from this, forgive, and walk in love.  Even if your heart is broken, even if you are so angry, do not let that settle in your heart and spirit.

You may never trust that individual again.  But don’t take matters into your own hands.  You would reap, something that you would not want in your life.  Eternal damnation, is one possibility, without repentance.  So think about that, and let go, and let God.  He will take care of this for you…. 

And before I close, remember what James 4:6-8 says, don’t be proud in this, hard-headed, thinking. It is your job to avoid.  

But He giveth more grace.  Wherefore He saith, God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble.  Submit yourselves therefore to God.  Resist the devil and He will flee from you.  Draw nigh to God, and He will draw nigh to you.  Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded.

I know, I am writing this for someone, if you would like to share your thoughts, please feel free.  I would pray for you.

And as I conclude:  remember this…

Which is a manifest token of the righteous judgment of God, that ye may be counted worthy of the kingdom of God, for which ye also suffer;  Seeing it is a righteous thing with God to recompense tribulation to them that trouble you; And to you who are troubled rest with us, when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with His mighty angels, In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ; Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of His power;  When He shall come to be glorified in His saints, and to be admired in all them that believe (because our testimony among you was believed) in that day. II Thessalonians 1:5-10

All you are called to do, is love them, forgive them, and release this by keeping Gods love unified in your heart….Know that God will take care of those who have hurt you, or offended you, and know they will be punished. All you have to do is forgive, and put it in Gods hands.  So you can go on.

Blessings, and Just my thoughts….Elena Ramirez

A Prayer of Hope….

Father, how I praise you, and love you, for teaching me your ways.  In obedience, there is peace, joy, and yes protection.  Lord, I think of David, and how Saul hated him, but David walked in love.  He could have hurt him back many a time, he could have done much for the things Saul did to him.  But instead he honored him, he even honored his family, after he was dead and gone.  Lord, there are times when we are so angry, and so hurt, we could do wrong, in your sight, and do things we should not.  But how grateful I am that you will take care of it.  We do reap what we sow, so we need to be so careful not to reap curses into our own lives, by having this mindset to take revenge.  Lord, thank you for showing me love.  Thank you for forgiving me, as I forgive others as well.  In Jesus name.  Amen
