I have to admit, I get sad, when I hear pastors, or even other Christians, have a false sense of their salvation.

They take it for granted. They call it a free gift, but yet, because they do not see what Christ really did for them, by His suffering, and on the cross, they abuse it.

They walk in this false sense of “grace” that the devil deceives them with, a lie from hell itself, and they do not have the fear of God, nor do they uphold the “Law.”  From the Old Testament.

Folks, Christ said, that many are going to say Lord, Lord, and He is going to say, I never knew you. Why because you did not really know Him. And when He says that, when you stand before Him, will that give you access to heaven? I don’t believe so.

Again, I suggest, what voice are you listening to? What Bible version, are you reading? I have said this in my book, HOW TO HAVE FAITH, but you do not want a coloring book, to take the tests in life. Let alone your faith!  You want Gods pure word.

This is important, because you need the purity of Gods word, to be in place. I suggest the King James Bible. But know this, that it is your responsibility, to find the truth.

FOR NOT THE HEARERS OF THE LAW ARE JUST BEFORE GOD, BUT THE DOERS OF THE LAW SHALL BE JUSTIFIED. ROMANS 2:13.

Please see this scripture carefully.  You are not justified, unless you keep and do what the law says!

Do you try to keep the law, even though you are a Christian?  Do you have the fear of God?  Do you discount the old testament?  But only embrace parts of Gods word?

I am telling you, for the sake of your salvation.  Get truth, get right, with God, in fear of God.  The devil is trying to deceive and cripple the body of Christ, and we need to warn others, and we need to be the example Christ told us to be in love.  Seriously.  It is very disheartening, when I listen to many, and they actually believe, they are o.k.  but they live like hell.  Their consciences are not centered, on how precious our salvation is.  They are not pierced, with the sense of what Christ did, to spare us from the penalty, the legality of the devils hold.  So they play with it.  Living life, without any worries, or even repentance.

Don’t play with your salvation.  We are to work it out, with trembling, and fear.  Repent, and read a Bible that is Holy!

And know this, and I have to emphasize this, because when Paul was talking about the law, he was talking about being free from the law of sin and death.  This is what we are free from.  Not Gods law.

It behooves any of us, to think that we would be beyond Gods law.  God understood, how His law, was difficult, and yes Christ makes a way for us.  But it is still there.  And you cannot disregard it.  Just like you would not exceed driving a certain amount of miles per hour, because you can get a ticket!  Or cause someone else death, by driving like a looney, laws are there to protect all of us!  God knew, and He does not flip flop.

Look this is the law, we are free from. Not Gods commandments!

FOR THE LAW OF THE SPIRIT OF LIFE IN CHRIST JESUS, HATH MADE ME FREE FROM THE LAW OF SIN AND DEATH.  Romans 8:2

Sin, is a law, that the principle of it, requires to pay the penalty. The wages of sin, is death.  Christ paid it, but don’t abuse it!

 Many are looking for loop-holes, to get away from the teachings and yes, the commandments of the Old Testament.  Saying, this is the new covenant, and the old covenant, is abolished.  Thats wrong!  Christ said, He did not come to abolish the law, but to fulfill it.

We are to make sure, we are doing everything, in our own ability, to keep that salvation in place.  Yes, it is ours for eternity, but you don’t play with it, in that false sense of security.

You keep the law, and in doing so, you can have that grace.  But that grace is not available if you do not have the law, front and center.  And that law, includes the fear of God!  He holds our souls, in His hands.

DO YOU HAVE THE SPIRIT OF FEAR?….



FOR GOD HAS NOT GIVEN US THE SPIRIT OF FEAR, BUT OF POWER, AND OF LOVE, AND OF A SOUND MIND.

II TIMOTHY 1:7

Do you believe, fear, can be caught like a virus?  For one, could be going about their life, fine, and then all of a sudden, fear, trepidation, can come in.  A sense of panic, a nervous agitation.  How does that happen?  What is it?  It is a spirit.

If God does not give us fear, where does the spirit of fear come from?  The answer is simple.  The devil.

So if you are a Christian, or considering becoming a Christian, and you are trying to learn the ways of God, his truths, his principles;  Know this, there is only one true God.  One Holy God.  He is, was, and is still to come.  He does not change.  He is the same, as He was, yesterday, today, and tomorrow.  His enemy is not equal to God.  That is a misconception.  For God tells us, that there is none else. LOOK UNTO ME, AND BE YE SAVED, ALL THE ENDS OF THE EARTH: FOR I AM GOD AND THERE IS NONE ELSE.  ISAIAH 45:22. So, one should know, there is no one else to compare to Him.  He will not share His glory, with any one else.  So in seeking God, one should be knowing who He is, and His truth.

You also, need to know the antics, of the enemy.  He is Gods adversary, and enemy, he is also yours.  You need Gods discernment.  The mind of Christ.  For you need to know the difference in spirit.  For the devil is evil.

So you better be aware of his spirit.  And how you can catch that spirit of fear.  Yes like a cold.  By participating in anything that is not of God, whether or not you accepted Christ, if your not careful, you can catch a spirit of fear.  Your guard is down.  What are you participating in?  Even now, Halloween is close by, and people are caught up in this.  The enemies intention, is to cause fear.  To take away your peace, your calmness, by scaring you.  By any antic, So how does he do it?  By passing the spirit, of fear, to you in fear.  

This is by your attitude, obedience, or the lack thereof.  Disobedience to God and his word opens you up to fear.  So my question is, what are you watching,what are you seeing, hearing, listening to?  What thoughts are you entertaining over and over again.  That do not speak peace.

The Bible tells us the devil, comes to kill steal, and destroy.

There is a difference between him and Christ.  Christ came to give life, abundantly.  He came for this very reason, the Bible says, to destroy the works of the enemy.  I John 3:8. He did that by the plan of God, by going to the cross, dying, and being resurrected, as he went to Hell, to get the keys from hell, from the devil, and by teaching us His ways.  (read Revelation 1:18) And as we understand the power of God, and his truths, we can avoid catching that spirit of fear.

The devil will always try to tempt us, and he does that in many ways.  But if he can get us to be fearful, we will be immobilized.  Fear, can cause someone to freeze.  They can’t make a decision, one way or another.  Thats what the devil wants to do. To any of us.  Because he does not want the plan of God, to become effective in our lives.  He does not want us to be victorious, or to know the truth, about fear.  More then anything, he does not want us to know Gods love, that comes from Christ.  That saves us.

Fear, can come in many ways.  Just in general, we can be fearful, about our health, we can be in fear of our finances, our jobs, our next meal, for that matter.  Thats why, knowing Gods word, will counter that.  Because if we know what Gods word says about our health, we can fight that fear, when we get that doctors report.  Always with the word of God, for knowing, by Christs stripes we are healed.  Isaiah 53:5.  

And on and on, for not only does he equip us with his word, but by his word, even in our finances, we can see, God will provide, for our needs according to his riches, through the glory, again, in Christ Jesus.  Philipians 4:19.  See the key, that we can use to grow, and to get out of that fear, is to know and to trust what Gods word says.

Even if we have to take it in small doses, like milk, so we can finally get to a place, where the word of God, will be “spiritual food” as meat.  (read Hebrews 5:12.)

So in knowing the word of God, you have a defense.  Speaking Gods word, is the weapon, we have to defeat the enemy.  Put on the WHOLE armor of God.  (Read Ephesians 6:11) Because as we know it, and meditate on it, we have this weapon, to bring down the strong holds of the devil.  You need to know God, but you need to know, the weapons, the enemy, will use.  You need to know, like any adversary, his personality, his characteristics, his traits.  So he can be defeated out of your life.  So you can have a victory.  

And if you want an anointed word, to battle the enemy, use the King James Bible.  Why would you use a bible that is not anointed, or has missing scriptures?  This is a trick from the enemy, to deceive people with word that is compromised, and not Holy.  That is why knowing Gods word, that has been preserved is so important to understand how to fight the enemy.  Psalm 12:6-7.  I recommend you read it from the King James.    

Even from the beginning, we could see, that the devil, had pride, he was conceited, he wanted, what God had.  And he wanted to lift himself, as well.  Till God saw through that, and kicked him out of heaven.  And when he tempted Eve, there again, he lied.  So we see the characteristics of the enemy, and when we see that in ourselves, or others, well, all we can do is pray for someone.  But, if we see that in ourselves, we are to take it to God, in repentance.  In doing so, we can be in position, to walk in faith, and not fear.

The devil, even tried to tempt Jesus, but Jesus put him in his place, and told him. It is written, man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word, that proceeds out of the mouth of God.  Luke 4:7. There again, a clue for us.  We cannot live without Gods word.  And He told him, get thee behind me satan.  For it is written thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt serve.  Luke 4:8.

We have been given that same authority, because Christ is our savior, to bind the enemy off of us.  To remember, we don’t have to fear the devil.  If you are going to fear, you better fear God, because He has the power, to put your soul in hell or heaven.  The Holy word of God, Wisdom, teaches us, Gods ways.  Faith, pleases God, and as you submit, to God, and resist, the devil, he will flee. James 4:7. So will those thoughts of fear.

Know what Gods word says, about everything.  And even especially now, depart from evil. Ephesians 4:27 Give no place to the devil, or his ways, or his antics.  Walk worthy of God, so you can really claim his promises.  But you can’t walk both ways.  You have to choose.  Choose this day, whom you will serve….(read Deuteronomy 30:15-20)

And then be set free, from your fear.  Whatever it is.  Go to God, He will take it away from you. Nothing, is impossible with God.  Don’t limit him in this or anything.  Trust God.  Build your faith up, and live life the way God intended you to.  In his love, and in his peace, and as you trust him, you will see the change.  The difference.  Able to do all things through Christ, who strengthens you.  Philipians 4:13.

The love of God, and you being in his love casts out fear, for in his love, we are made perfect.  I John 4:18

Just my thoughts, Elena Ramirez

FOR WE WRESTLE NOT AGAINST FLESH AND BLOOD, BUT AGAINST PRINCIPALITIES, AGAINST POWERS, AGAINST THE RULERS OF DARKNESS OF THIS WORLD, AGAINST SPIRITUAL WICKEDNESS IN HIGH PLACES.  TAKE UNTO YOU THE WHOLE ARMOUR OF GOD, THAT YOU MAY BE ABLE TO WITHSTAND IN THE EVIL DAY, AND HAVING DONE ALL, TO STAND. EPHESIANS 6:12-13


A Prayer of Hope….

Lord, my Father, I praise you, and thank you almighty God, for your protection.  For understanding.  Lord, lead us not into temptation.  For thine is the Kingdom, and the power and glory.  Help us to not be tempted, to get caught up, in the things of the enemy.  Traps, he uses to cause us to fear, or to lose our confidence, our faith in you.  Lord, you are the great shepherd.  You protect us, from the enemy.  Deliver us, and guide us, to know truth, truth that will truly set us free.  So we can live victorious lives.  Help us Lord, to know the difference.  To know your ways, and particiipate in your ways, not the enemies.  Let us see, truth, to set us free.  Our souls free, from the soul ties of the devil.  Show us how we can catch fear, and how to get rid of it.  By having faith.  I know this will please you…..In Jesus name.  Amen

TITHING~THINGS BREAK BUT NOT MY TRUST IN THE PROMISES OF GOD


BRING ALL THE TITHES INTO THE STOREHOUSE, THAT THERE MAY BE MEAT IN MINE HOUSE, AND PROVE ME NOW HEREWITH, SAITH THE LORD OF HOSTS, IF I WILL NOT OPEN YOU THE WINDOW OF HEAVEN, AND POUR YOU OUT A BLESSING, THAT THERE SHALL NOT BE ROOM ENOUGH TO RECEIVE IT.  AND I WILL REBUKE THE DEVOURER FOR YOUR SAKE, AND HE SHALL NOT DESTROY THE FRUITS OF YOUR GROUND, NEITHER SHALL YOUR VINE CAST HER FRUIT BEFORE THE TIME, IN THE FIELD, SAITH THE LORD OF HOSTS.  MALACHI 3:10-11

I am trusting God, and that promise.  Because for the first time, in a very long time, I made some money, from my new Photography business.  And I tithed, the ten percent, faithfully, and obediently, I took that tithe to my church, and I gave it to God.  Not one penny of it did I keep, without, separating it, to give.

And I am going to continue to tithe, and give my ten percent, to God, for as long, as God in his mercy, will make a way for me to make a living, from my photography, or anything he would give to me, through writing, or other means, I will Tithe.

And with regret, and some sadness, I also share, that today, I dropped my camera, and it broke.  I Shattered, the view lens.

It just happened so strangely.  My husband and I were about to go for a walk.  And I had contemplated, whether or not, I should take the camera with me.  At first, my thoughts were no, but then, I thought, what if I meet a perspective client, and I can take their photograph.  But after dropping it, well, that thought went out the window.  But God promises, in the scripture, above, that He will open a “WINDOW” and pour out a blessing.

So, I trust God.  And even though, the timing of this is somewhat distressful, I am going to trust him.  Even though, I do not have a camera, or money to get it fixed right now, or even an alternative plan.  I believe, and trust God.  I believe His word.

And I don’t know about you or your finances, but I am tired, of barely getting by.  Living on my husbands retirement, and not having enough.  Do, I want to blame the government?  Or the recession?  Or the economy?  Nope.  I have to look at whether or not I am being obedient to God. Because his word, says..Seek his kingdom, and his righteousness, and all things will be added unto me.  Matthew 6:33. So I am seeking his Kingdom, and righteousness.  And even though, I am tired, I am grateful.  So grateful to God.  It is hard, sometimes, but at least we have a home, and food.  And each other, our wonderful son, and for the most part good health.  More then anything though, we have our faith in God.  God is so very good to me.  I need to say this.  I love him, and want to serve him.

And as He blesses me, I want and will bless others.  Today Marilyn Hickey and Sarah shared from their ministry, as they travel to impoverished countries, the poverty there.  And my heart, was touched, to want to help.  DEFEND THE POOR AND FATHERLESS: DO JUSTICE TO THE AFFLICTED AND NEEDY PSALM 82:3. So, I prayed about it, even this morning, and then this happened.  But I will help others, as God helps me.  And I have not been obedient, in the past concerning this.  But I am now.  Especially now.

You see, I am trying to start a photography business.  It is all so very new.  I have only had one paid client.  And I promised, God, that I would tithe any money, I would make from my business.  To those who do not understand, the word “tithe” let me kindly, explain what it means.  It means giving God, the first fruits.  The first ten percent.

My business, is Christ based.  In the sense, that as a Christian, I am going to give glory to God.  In all my ways, I am going to acknowledge Christ is my savior.  Based on the scripture in Proverbs 3:6.  IN ALL THY WAYS, ACKNOWLEDGE HIM, AND HE SHALL DIRECT THY PATHS. This means, in my personal life, my business, my writings, in everything, I am going to acknowledge God, like the word says.  I am not ashamed, of my Lord.  I am grateful, for I was once lost, but now found.  So, my goal in my new photography business, is to acknowledge God is my Lord.  My web page, the link below, gives more information.

Not only do I plan, on taking photographs of people, but I am able to restore photographs, and offer Christian art, with my photographs, I am going to add scriptures to them, and perhaps they will inspire someone, and someone will buy them.  I am also able to create a collage of photographs, with up to six separate photographs, to create a beautiful, page, for someones memories.

So that old devil, is probably laughing at me, right now.  But, I know, I am going to have the last laugh, and with God as my protection.  I just know, and believe, God will make a way, and as the scripture says, above, he will rebuke the devourer.  He will restore.  I don’t know how exactly God will provide for the repair, etc.  But God made a promise, concerning tithing, and I am claiming his word.

Do you know, that in the Bible, this is the only place, where God tells us to test him?  If we bring our tithes to him, faithful, we can remind him of his promises, and test him.  Well, I said, my prayer, and I am believing, God will rebuke the devourer, for my sake, because I have only made one small earning, from my new photography business.  But, I tithed it, and it is holy unto God.  God has been teaching me a lot lately, about this, and I know whenever I go through something, or I see something, I will share it.  Especially, if it speaks truth, and brings glory to God.  So I share this with you, because even though “Things break, but, my trust will not break.  I believe in the promises of God.”

Below is a video, and I saw it at the church, we are now visiting, and I thought, I would share it with you as well.  I feel it is a very symbolic message.  Because God does see.  He sees what we spend our money on.  And he sees, whether or not we are obedient.  Maybe it will speak to you too, especially, if things are broken, around you.  Or you see, you are not being obedient.  And you may have a revelation, or understanding

I pray, it will speak to you as well.  All I know, is my trust is in God, and I share this, because I am believing, God.  Sure my camera is broken, sure it looks hopeless, right now.  But not really…..my trust is in God.  It will work out, and I am believing, for a blessing, because God does not lie.

Hoping what I am going through, may help you as well.  Blessings, and “Just my Thoughts.”  Heres my link, below my prayer, if you need a photographer, after my camera gets fixed, or I can buy another one.

I would love for you to consider me, or at least my photographs.  Maybe theres one there that will minister to you, as well.  Check out the link that says….Christian Art.  And I commit here, to give a testimony to his glory….It will have the Key word “Tithing”  So look for it, as I update you, in the future, and more then anything, give my Father, glory, honor, and praise.  For being so good to me.

Blessings and much love in Christ,

Elena Ramirez

My Prayer of Hope,

Lord, a brief prayer, but my trust is in you, and your word.  I pray, this ministers and blesses someone else.  Lord, I bring it to the obedience of Christ, and I believe.  In Jesus name, I also thank you Lord.  Amen

WHY WE CAN HAVE DEPRESSION AND KEYS TO GET RID OF IT~ JUST MY THOUGHTS


This morning, I was thinking of someone, I know, vaguely, but who acknowledged, she had depression.  I don’t know this person, very well, but I do pray she would be healed in this.  I feel awkward writing to her about this.  But I do feel like writing it here, and perhaps, she can read it later, and if anything, maybe it will help others.

But it made me think, about some of the reasons why we have depression.  And then God spoke into my heart, and reminded me of when I have, had it, and what he brought to my attention.  So, I will share this.

1.  We can have depression, when we are not in the word of God, or we are not taking Gods promises to heart.  If we are not taking his word to heart, and knowing the promises from God, we really are saying, we do not believe him, and take him at his word.  Or we are saying, we don’t believe in his word.

When we stay in that place of depression, I think sometimes, we think, there is no escape.  There is.  We do not have to stay in that place of depression.  We are human, yes, we have emotions, but one scripture, I love, and it reminds me of getting out of that place of failure, or depression, or low self-esteem is, we are going through this, but we do not have to stay there.  The scripture is:  Psalms 23:4  YEA, THOUGH I WALK THROUGH THE VALLEY OF THE SHADOW OF DEATH, I WILL FEAR NO EVIL, FOR THOU ART WITH ME, THY ROD AND THY STAFF THEY COMFORT ME. My goodness, we are walking through so much, in life now a days, and so we need God, to comfort us, and so we don’t fear.  BUT, to remember, we are walking through.  Depression, is a form of spiritual death.  There is no life, no joy, no happiness, nothing to hold onto, when we stay in depression.  We do not have to stay in that place of depression.  We can walk through it, with Gods word, prayer, and  a decision to get out of it.

So we have to actively, seek him, in prayer, and by his word.  We have to begin to start memorizing, or searching for those words, his promises, concerning our minds, our souls, our spirits.  So that we can have a weapon, to use, when those dark foreboding spirits, which come from the devil, are used to attack us.  He tells us in Isaiah 26:3 THOU WILL KEEP HIM IN PERFECT PEACE, WHOSE MIND IS STAYED ON THEE, BECAUSE HE TRUSTS IN THEE.  So when we are trusting God, seeking him, our mind is “staying” on him, because we believe, then we grow, and change, and see things from his perspective.  And really, in all honesty, because I know, you can only get that from seeking his word.

God knows when we are seeking him, and he knows whats on our thoughts.  I know this, and when my thoughts, do not reflect him, I realize I have to repent, and seek him, according to his word.  Here he tells us this.  AND THE SPIRIT, OF THE LORD, FELL UPON ME, AND SAID UNTO ME, SPEAK; THUS SAITH THE LORD; THUS YE HAVE SAID OH HOUSE OF ISRAEL; FOR I KNOW THE THINGS THAT COME INTO YOUR MIND, EVERY ONE OF THEM. Ezekiel 11:5.

Yikes, I don’t know about you, but it kind of scares me, with the fear of the Lord, that he does know this about me, so I want my thoughts, to reflect him.  Thats why I write, thats why, I express myself, to tap into his thinking, so I can live, a productive, life, a holy life, I hope, that will be evident of his love.  Everything, I try to express, I try to base it on HIS word, his thoughts, so you will see him in it, not me, not Elena, but because I live, move, and have my being because of him, he brings his truth to my mind.  To comfort me, to teach me, to remind me, and I need that often, but his word, truly is my weapon.  And it cuts…..But it also can protect, and heal.  

And please note:  But read His word from the King James Bible.  It is anointed, and powerful, it does not have missing scriptures like other Bible versions do.  It is the main, Preserved word, so use that when using this as a format.

2.  Anyway, so another reason, we can get into depression, I believe, is when we are not in a mode of Thankfulness.  We can get prideful, or begin thinking we are the ones who have brought our own blessings.  So then, we are not thanking God, we are not grateful.  That can be thinking from the perspective of the flesh, and being carnally minded.  FOR TO BE CARNALLY MINDED IS DEATH, BUT TO BE SPIRITUALLY MINDED IS LIFE AND PEACE.  BECAUSE THE CARNAL MIND IS ENMITY AGAINST GOD; FOR IT IS NOT SUBJECT TO THE LAW OF GOD, NEITHER INDEED CAN BE.  ROMANS 9;6-7  So, the thoughts, when we are carnal minded, are death thoughts, not grateful, now seeing what Christ did for us, not forgiving, and there are so many aspects to this, but we need to begin, by seeing are we truly grateful, for what Christ did for us?

3.  O.k.  now, the last item I want to bring to your attention, and this goes hand in hand with being thankful, but I have learned, that the spirit of praise, can knock those bad spirits, those foreboding thoughts away.  Praise is a weapon, yes, to acknowledge and give glory to God.  But when you do, you are putting on the spirit of praise, and it is a garment, that protects you. TO APPOINT UNTO THEM THAT MOURN IN ZION, TO GIVE UNTO THEM BEAUTY FOR ASHES, THE OIL, OF JOY, FOR MOURNING, THE GARMENT OF PRAISE, FOR THE SPIRIT OF HEAVINESS.  THAT THEY MIGHT BE CALLED TREES OF RIGHEOUSNESS THE PLANTING OF THE LORD, THAT HE MIGHT BE GLORIFIED.  ISAIAH 61:3.

There are so many benefits to praising God, and when you put that garment on you are saying, I am thankful, I am grateful, I appreciate you Lord.  How GREAT you are dear Lord!!! What Father, will not help his child, in any area, when we show this?  So I encourage you to seek him, at his word, trust him, go through and not stay there, be thankful, and yes praise him. WHY ART THOU CAST DOWN, OH MY SOUL?  AND WHY DISQUIETED IN ME?  HOPE THOU IN GOD FOR I SHALL YET PRAISE HIM FOR THE HELP OF HIS COUNTENANCE: Oh yes, his countenance, is sweet, and soothing.  Cast all of your cares on him, for he cares for you.

And as I conclude; I want to bring to your attention one more thing.  Have you repented of any sin?  Have you given your heart to Christ, so you can have a place in his Kingdom?  None of those things I shared above with you, will work until you come to that place, of the cross, and give your heart to Christ.

I don’t know you, nor do I judge you.  But, if there is sin in your life, saved or unsaved, that you have not taken to the throne of God.  It will bother you.  Thats just the way God has made us.  Ask God to create in you a clean heart, and a right spirit, like David did.  The Psalms are so comforting when we are going through anything, so I encourage you to read them, so you have something to pray, even in relation to your depression.  We all can have depression, learning what to do, and trusting God will help us, to have that peace.  Isaiah 57:21 tells us there is no peace to the wicked.  We need to see our ways, so we can change to Gods ways…..

AND THESE THINGS WRITE WE UNTO YOU, THAT YOUR JOY MAY BE FULL.  THIS THEN IS THE MESSAGE WHICH WE HAVE HEARD OF HIM, AND DECLARE UNTO YOU, THAT GOD IS LIGHT, AND IN HIM, IS NO DARKNESS AT ALL.  I JOHN 1:4-5

Just my thoughts, hope this blesses you.  Much love, in Christ,

Elena Ramirez

Father, I thank you, that you have shown me these main keys to defeating depression.  Truly Lord, the joy of you, is my strength, and I have peace as I put the armor of God on as well.  The helmet of my savlation, protects my mind, from the fiery darts of the enemy.  Lord, there are many aspects to this.  And Father, whoever who would be reading this, I pray, if they are experiencing any depression, you would give them wisdom, for the right method of healing.  These are just keys, that you have shown me, but we all have different reasons, why we struggle, it could be from anything, that maybe one has gone through, to something chemically, unbalanced.   So, I want to be careful not to diagnose, or judge anyone in this.  But, I do pray, that we would seek you, for guidance.  Thank you Lord, for blessing in this area.  I am grateful, in Jesus name.  That you are my source of hope, and love.  As I claim your word, to have the mind of Christ.  In my life.  And in your sons holy name, I claim this.  Amen

I CORINTHANS 2:16

FOR WHO HATH KNOWN THE MIND OF THE LORD, THAT HE MAY INSTRUCT HIM?  BUT WE HAVE THE MIND OF CHRIST.

HERE IS YOUR GOD!


HERE IS YOUR GOD, SEE THE SOVEREIGN LORD COMES WITH POWER, AND HIS ARM RULES FOR HIM.  SEE, HIS REWARD IS WITH HIM, AND HIS RECOMPENSE ACCOMPANIES HIM.  HE TENDS HIS FLOCK LIKE A SHEPHERD.  HE GATHERS THE LAMBS IN HIS ARMS AND CARRIES THEM CLOSE TO HIS HEART;  HE GENTLY LEADS THOSE THAT HAVE YOUNG….ISAIAH 40:9-11

This message is for each one of us…..and even though, we may all be at different stages of life.  We are meant to know God.

So many times, life will give us a situation, and we do not know what to do, how to do it, or where to turn….and just as you almost feel helpless.  You wonder….

You may be in a routine of life, and bored….You may be successful, yet lonely…..You could be anywhere in life, and your heart is longing for something true, and real.  And you don’t know it, but you need God.  Or you may know it, but you just don”t know how…You do not know how to reach God.

For the truth of the matter, like a computer, with software installed in you, you were created to have fellowship with God.  God the creator of heaven and earth, created you in his image, created you to have a relationship with him.

A small voice speaks, and tells you, seek God.  For doing that, is the solution.  But do you hear that voice, or do you ignore it?  That is Gods Holy spirit, calling you.  For many times, you will brush that little voice aside, and say, no, how can I turn to God?  I don’t know how.  Or why should I turn to God, when I have sinned so much, and I want to believe, but does he even hear me?  Or sadly, someone will say, I don’t need God.

Dear one, I don’t know you, but I know, today, someone will hear God through me, as I try and articulate, his call to you.  It does not matter where you are….or who you are…..or what you have done.  God loves you.  And to be completely honest, to the person, who says, I do not need God….  You know, you are lying to yourself.  You were created to love him, and know him but you are believing the lies….and that comes from the devil.  For in your heart of hearts, you know, you need God.  Something is missing, that final puzzle, when He is not in our lives.  Because thats the way He made us.  We know, when we need him.  Even if we have denied him.  But he does not deny us, if we search for him.  I know….

You may have lost your way, along the way.  Maybe someone has abandoned you, perhaps, a spouse, and has hurt you deeply.  It could be a friend, or even a job loss….But you feel very alone.  Even if someone is right by your side.

You feel abandoned not complete.  And you will continue to have that feeling if you do not do something about that, right now….if you do not harden your heart.

Maybe someone was not loyal to you.  But God will be loyal to you.  When someone is disloyal, it is grievous, and wounds the heart, to the core of who we are.  But at that core, is the love of Jesus, if you just look there, you will find that he is truth.  John 14:6  That he will heal you.  Isaiah 53:5 That He will never leave or forsake you.  Joshua 1:5.  God tells you that, in his word, and his son, also tells you that…Hebrews 13:5.

Why look to your horoscope, or to people, or some self-help book.  Even now you can take these scriptures, and look them up, and meditate on then.  When God is calling you to come to his throne, seek him.  And He wants you to know, you can come to him, at any time. You ask me how do I do that?  Well you can do it first of all anywhere.  But take a moment, a quiet moment, go into a room, if you can by yourself, and just begin talking to him.  See yourself, sitting at his feet, and see yourself, and him.  He is the great counselor, friend, and yet He is the King of Kings.

Let him take your hurt, your pain, and quiet your spirit.  If there is sin, dear one, ask him, for forgiveness.  If there is pride, and you think you have not sinned, ask him to show you, that pride.  You see, God wants to do a new thing with you and your life, but you need to search for him.

The secret, is don’t give up on him.  Don’t take this moment and throw it away.  Search for him, with all your heart, all your soul, and all your might.  You will find him.  You might even go to your Bible, and look up in the concordance, something thats on your heart….He will encourage you.  Here is God.  Find him.  Pray….and if need to pray the Prayer of Salvation, the link is below.  This way through this prayer, you will know, your sins are forgiven.  And you have a place in his Kingdom.  Be encouraged.  God is calling you…..

Just my thoughts, with his love.  Elena Ramirez

A Prayer of Hope….

Lord, what to do, how to do it…..feeling lost, not sure what to do.  But seeking you, seeking your love, your counsel, your advice, your fellowship.  Your healing…..Lord, touch this persons heart, to know you are able, and in seeking you.  There is always a way.  In Jesus name.  Bless Lord, bless, Amen.

GOD HAS A PLAN


Jeremiah 29:11  FOR I KNOW THE PLANS I HAVE FOR YOU, DECLARES THE LORD, PLANS TO PROSPER YOU AND NOT TO HARM YOU, PLANS TO GIVE YOU HOPE AND A FUTURE.  THEN YOU WILL CALL UPON ME AND COME AND PRAY TO ME, AND I WILL LISTEN TO YOU.  YOU WILL SEEK ME AND FIND ME WHEN YOU SEEK ME WITH ALL YOUR HEART.

I love this scripture.  It is one of the first scriptures, I found, when I truly gave my heart to God.  This was a time, where I quit playing, Saved…..and I really gave my heart to God.  Maybe thats you, you were like me.  You believed in God, but you were not serious about salvation.  You were not serious, about doing things Gods way.  You lived in the ways of the world.  Yet, you wanted Gods power working on your behalf.  But you walked the fence, when it came to God, and doing it your way, or the ways of the world.

But, when I really got a revelation, that God has a plan, it did  help me, to turn from the ways of the world, and it did cause me to search for him, more obediently, more passionately, and not give up on God.  This scripture that God has a plan, made me see more clearly.  In fact, through the years, that scripture, will just pop up.  I may see it on a sign, or someone will say it, and every time, I have seen it, it has been at a time, where I really needed direction from God.  I needed hope, I needed to get a grip, to persevere, because I just felt like I was spinning my wheels, not making progress.  To remind me, God has a plan.

Did you know the cross is part of the plan?  His plan of redemption, Jesus came to save a world from the devil.  From reaping hell for our sins.  Jesus, Gods son is part of the plan.  But you have to believe.  I am so glad I believe in Christ, as my Lord and savior.  I am so glad, I am part of his plan.  Can you believe that?  Wow little me, yet we all are.  If we seek him totally, with all our being.  A great plan is unfolded in us, by being in Christ.

Life, is a journey, and as a metaphor, maybe you can see this in your own life, in your own situations.  But, I have learned truly God does have a plan.  When I go through things, or I just don’t seem to make any progress, I have learned, God is in his plan working things out for my benefit.  It may seem like I have to change, like attitudes, or behaviors.  Or it may be, that God is working other things out.  That I do not see, or have no control over.

All I know is that, As he moves in my life, as I take this journey, I see his hand.  I see, him strategically, placing me here and there.  A perfect example was when I met my husband.  I had prayed for a mate.  I had been divorced, for a few years, and that was bad news, I won’t get into that.  I was so very lonely.  But, when I finally decided, I was going to do it Gods way, in honoring God, and all that entailed in that, I met my husband.  And we did it Gods way.  Honoring God, before marriage, not having premarital sex, and since the beginning seeking God, for counsel, seeking him, for our needs, and yes, blessing God back, by giving, by praying, by putting our trust in him.  By loving God, and loving each other Gods way….Yes.  My marriage is a success.

And well, I have seen Gods plan in other things, our sons schooling, and just how he has learned to do so much more well.  We moved by a Christian school, and it made it convenient, for us to raise him in the ways of the Lord.  Protecting him from secular ideals.  Well now he is older, and in College, but I really believe, our raising him in the ways of the Lord, has made a difference.  More so then when I was his age.  I was so misguided.  So I have in countless things, that I cannot even document here, I have seen Gods plan.  In this journey of life.

Look all I know, is that if you are struggling, right now, even in your faith, hold onto that scripture.  That God has a plan, go to him, don’t let go of your faith.  Trust him, and let him see things work out for you.  I know I am not even close to where I want to be, or who I am, or am I?  How do I know?

You see God has the whole picture, he knows what is ahead for you and for me.  I don’t even know if I am close to what my hearts desire is, but I know, that I know God has a plan.  And I will keep on serving him, in my writing, in trying to live a clean life, by his word, in loving, in being obedient, in all the things that keep me near him.  Because I know he is God, and in this plan, all I know, is I love God more than ever, and I know he exists.

Keep pressing in, keep trusting him.  Dear one, I know you might feel weary, you might feel like no on cares.  But God does.  He may be working something out in you, that you just don’t feel like you can make it.  But remember all things are possible with God. Be inspired, to know, he is with you, he will not leave you or desert you.  This is part of his plan.  But maybe part of the plan for you, like it was for me, is just surrendering, just believing…..

I don’t know whats ahead for me, but I will keep walking with him on this journey, I will keep looking to him. I will keep seeking him, with all my heart. Learning more to submit to his will to be done, more so then mine, because he knows better.  His plan is bigger, better, greater, than anything I could ever conceive or think of.  Because he is God.  Because God has a plan…..

Just my thoughts, and with love,  Elena Ramirez

A Prayer of Hope…..

Lord, obedient, I want to be, and try to be, as I write this message on your plan, I praise you.  I give you thanks, and worship you, for your ways, and not my ways, as you reveal your plan.  I thank you for everything you have brought me through, that shows me more, and more who you are, but who I can be in your plan.  I see the evidence.  Lord, I pray for the person reading this, as they trust you, and as they seek you.  Show them your plan.  You will I know.  For you love us all, but we just have to place our lives in your hands totally, for it to be revealed.  I know for me, anyway, I had to see this, to see your plan.  To see your glory revealed in my life.  My Father, I adore you.   Thank you Lord, in Jesus name, for your plan, I still hold onto.  Amen

WHAT DOES IT TAKE TO LOVE GOD?~A PRAYER OF HOPE DEVOTIONAL


The Love of God.....

THIS IS LOVE FOR GOD:  TO OBEY HIS COMMANDS.  AND HIS COMMANDS ARE NOT BURDENSOME; FOR EVERYONE BORN OF GOD, OVERCOMES THE WORLD.  THIS IS THE VICTORY THAT HAS OVERCOME THE WORLD, EVEN OUR FAITH.  WHO IS IT THAT OVERCOMES THE WORLD?  ONLY HE WHO BELIEVES THAT JESUS IS THE SON OF GOD.  I JOHN 5:3-5

A guarantee from God, but with instruction.  According to his specifications.  If we say we love God, then we must want to obey his commands. No, ifs, but’s, or maybes. For by obeying him we can have a victory.  Wow, in a world, that seems so unsure, in the way we view it, we can have a hope for a victory.  We can overcome.  That is Gods promise to us even here.  I love his word.  I love taking a scripture like this and defining it, and to try to understand it.  And if I do not understand it, all I have to do is ask God.  And by his Holy spirit, I can get revelation.  I can get understanding.  So, to know, that all we have to do, to love God, is to believe, in Jesus Christ, and to try and obey him.

Wait….Let me rephrase that, one must, decide once and for all to obey God.  To truly express love to him.

I remember a few years ago, this was challenging for me, and it can be.  If you want to stay in the ways of the world.  And to continue to sin.  But I remember a few years ago, I made up my mind, that I was going to give it my all.  To serve God, to obey him, to love him, and to turn from sin.  To turn from doing things my way.  I have not been the same since then.  And to say it has been easy, would be a lie.  But I would never go back to not feeling this security, that only God almighty gives me.   Life goes by so quickly.  And the inevitable, is obvious.  We all die.  I am glad, I know, because of Jesus Christ, I have a place with him.  Theres no doubt in my mind.  That in itself, is a victory, here on this earth…I have overcome the world.  Because Jesus is my savior.

Burdensome?  Not once you make up your mind.  There is a peace and a joy, I would never have had, if I had continued and struggled with this decision.  I struggled, before,  but not now.  I know….

My Prayer of Hope….

Father, I do love you Lord.  I thank you Lord, what more can I say, to you in this public prayer?  But you know my heart.  You know all of our hearts.  To love you, to seek you, to come to your throne, just as we are….Lord, what an awesome God you are.  You take us, change us, restore us, renew us, taking the darkness, the sin, away.  And forever we are changed.  By this great love of yours.  That is the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow.  Father, how someone can deny you, is beyond me.  But I am so glad, you showed me your love, through Jesus Christ.  And yes, the Holy word, your gospel, the Bible, has shown me how and what your commandments are.  Not religion.  Not rules made by men.  But your commandments, have been revealed.  I don’t get them confused.  For I know truth, that has set me free.  I am so glad to know, that Christ died for my sins.  So, I finally could live. I pray, that for the reader here, who does not know you.  That you can make that change for them as well.  For you are not a respecter of persons.  All we have to do is believe…that Jesus Christ is Lord.  And obey your commands.  This is my desire to obey you not only now, but always.  Because I do love you.  I love you more than I can say.  And in your sons name, our Lord.  Amen

Dear reader, If you do not know Gods love, and his commandments, please pray the prayer link below, with the Prayer of Salvation.  And begin reading your Bible.  I recommend John.  In the new testament.  And please also let me know, if I can pray for you.  Acknowledge to your friends, the decision, you have made to live for Christ.  It will not be burdensome, if you make up your mind, once and for all.  I know….

Blessings, Just my thoughts, and with love,
