A Christian, really does need to keep his or her guard up.  There are some sick messages out there, and they are every where.  It is so sad, that more moral, or thoughts of integrity, are not available to see, view, and ponder on.  But, it is a fight, I suppose between good and evil.

Evil.  Yuk, just even writing the word can leave a bad taste.  Spiritually, that is, because if you ponder on something, you are eating it.  No, I remember what God says, even from the beginning.  Do not eat from the tree of good and evil.  It was a commandment, Adam and Eve broke.  They should have gone to God, which we can still do, and pray, but symbolically, the message is the same.  Do not sin.  Don’t eat from the tree of evil, eat from that which is good.  So how do we guard ourselves?

Well, we really do have to be in tune to what God says.  His holy word, a word not corrupted.  A King James word.  We have to be in prayer, and we have to have our armor on.  The armor of God.

There are many “subliminal” messages, that tell you its o.k. to sin.  Its ok to talk to other spiritual entities, to believe in ghosts, to have sex, to be dishonest, they are every where!  etc. etc. 

You just have to know what is right and wrong in the sight of God. 

Just yesterday, I saw one, at the movies, where they turned it into a cartoon, but it came straight from hell.  Where a dark spirit, kept having to fight to make a point.  And I thought a kid, a child, would be entertained with that.  And as I looked in the audience, I was seeing adults take it all in.  I just shook my head, and told my husband the subliminal messages of that sort comes to distort all that is good.  

It really is sad.  What is going to happen, that we may not even be able to turn on our televisions, or watch a movie, with some kind of filter, to quench those subliminal messages?  I don’t know.  

All I know is I am aware of them.  And not everything goes.  Part truth, part lies, do not bring innocence back.  It does not make you feel that good warm, and fuzzy feeling.  That sense of good.  That sense of moral integrity.  

Those kind of subliminal messages, say its o.k. to be bad.  When I am looking for a good movie to watch.  I either have to look for a very old movie, or one that has a good story line, without the implication of some kind of sin.  I look just at the menu of what movies that are playing, and even in the titles, the subliminal messages are so bad, that you cannot help but see the goal in our society is to pervert.  It almost seems like an agenda.  Or a conspiracy.  Pollute the minds of people.  And maybe that thought is not too far from the truth, because I wonder where are the systems in place to keep people safe from some of this crap.  

I really believe that if we take enough of this crap into our systems, we can sin.  We can, pollute our own spirits.  

I know, just by writing this, I am just tapping into the atrocity of this.  But we need to have to see.  We have to monitor our kids, and ourselves.  There is so much filth out there, that it does pollute the way people view things.  No longer, do we see wholesome shows, like I used to when I was a kid.  Those that have a moral message, to be good, or to pray, or to seek God, when in trouble.  When was the last time you saw some disaster movie, where they prayed.  No, they do not. They may sing “row, row your boat”, to get their minds off of the danger, but its sad.  (I won’t name that movie.) 

Subliminal messages, should be good too.  Try looking for them.  And if you cannot find them, try being an example of a subliminal message that gives glory to God.  That gives the example of moral, honesty, and integrity.  If not for someone else to see.  For yourself, to see as you repent.  As you seek God.  To live a clean life, an honest life, a life that has discernment to depart from evil, and that one that someone can say, that person really is a reflection of Christ, in all ways, including being a good example.  

Just my thoughts, today, blessings and love,

 No man, when he hath lighted a candle, putteth it in a secret place, neither under a bushel, but on a candle stick, that they which come in may see the light.  The light of the body is the eye, therefore when the thine eye is single, thy whole body also is full of light; but when thine eye is evil, thy body also is full of darkness.  Take heed therefore that the light which is in thee be not darkness.  If thy whole body therefore be full of light, having no part dark, the whole shall be full of light, as when the bright shining of a candle doth give thee light.  Luke 11:33-36.  

Elena Ramirez 

 

Lord, my prayer, today is help me to know what your word says.  Help me to know your heart.  Help me, help my own heart to be pure, and to think good thoughts.  Not evil.  Not filthy.  Not cold, or mean, or hateful thoughts.  Help me to see the subliminal messages, so I can have discernment between good and evil.  So I can depart from evil.  Help me not to look at any vain thing, or anything that is perverted.  So I do not accept these things.  Lord, help our society.  Help others, to see that we are what we eat.  And that is spiritually as well.  Lord, I repent.  Because even last night, after watching some junk on television, for lack of anything else to watch, I felt cold in my spirit.  I do repent.  Forgive me, and help me to change my viewing habits, on television, or by what I read, or view.  So I do not accept anything that offends you.  And so I can grow.

In Jesus name.  Amen

FREEDOM OF SPEECH AND THE RESPONSIBILITY I HAVE TO SHARE ON THE INTERNET AND SOCIAL MEDIA ~ BY CHRISTIAN AUTHOR ELENA RAMIREZ

Be careful little eyes what you see. A childs Christian song, but a warning for all of us.

As a servant of the most high God, I realize there are things I have to be careful about, in what I share, write, and yes, give as food for thought.  

Yes there is freedom of speech, here in America, and any good citizen would defend your right to say it.  

But does it need to be said?  Does it need to be shared, or spoken? What is the motive? When you send something?  And we really do need to ALL look at this…

I do not want to be a hypocrite, because I have made mistakes, when I have hit that “enter” button.  Is the motive to be a “shock value?”  

Because to be honest there are a lot of things that are on the internet, and yes they shock.  But what can I do as a good citizen and yes, as a servant of God?  

I get flustered, when I see the news media not using discretion, and sharing something, that has no real value, but they don’t always see the need to be an example, or to be professional and use some common sense, because people see this crap, and they take it and use it.  Hollywood does the same thing.  So what can you and I do?  

Protect your young ones, yourself, and others, by what you share and what you allow!   

I guess some questions to ask yourself, when you are going to share something, is what purpose, will this serve?  Am I serving God or the devil?  

There are some things here, that are so vile, and evil, and I realize because sometimes, I have seen them, that they can leave an impression, and not a good one.

So, I cannot speak for anybody else, but I do not want to give anything here, that could plant a seed for evil. Even to use as an example of rebuking, or denouncing, because of what the visual can do, is so much more worse damaging. I hope this makes sense, because I cannot speak for anybody else, but I realize what we put into our systems, can affect us.

This is why I am careful, what I watch on television, movies, books I read etc. The enemy is tricky, and you may think you can handle it, but if that seed has been planted, and you know how to do it, it could come to fruit.  

And I guess, I am thinking about how God wanted to protect us as well….

He did not want Adam and Eve to eat from the tree of good and evil. Because He knew the knowledge of evil could be planted in their hearts. He does not want us to know how to do evil. This is sin.

When someone goes to these “HOW TO” video sites, to research something, they are looking to learn something.  It is bad enough many have the motive to want to cause havoc, and evil, but what about you, the average person, who may not even know the implications, of evil, but you are sharing it?  Whose your audience?  Is another question to ask.  

Have you not noticed, on the news when a terrible crime was done, they retrieve someones computer, to see what did they research and look for?

Just like that computer that knows, what someone searched for God knows as well.   

When we see things here, that show evil, we are being used by the enemy. If we share it. I just want to express, that we need to be careful, we need to have a filter, to protect each other as well, from the enemy.

No condemnation, no judging, I am just speaking my heart, that we have this responsibility. As children of God, as servants of the King.  

And maybe you do not know God, nor understand the implications, but we will be judged.  By God Himself.  The fear of God is to depart from evil, not share it. This is understanding.  Paraphrasing scripture of Proverbs 3:7 BE NOT WISE IN THINE OWN EYES; FEAR THE LORD, AND DEPART FROM EVIL.  

And if anything, we are called to love one another, as we love God.  

We need to think about this, and be cautious.  Because the truth of the matter if we cannot do it for ourselves, how can we do it in the work we do for God? We are called to think good thoughts, and to be careful.

FOR IF A MAN KNOW NOT HOW TO RULE HIS OWN HOUSE, HOW SHALL HE TAKE CARE OF THE CHURCH OF GOD? I TIMOTHY 3:5.

FINALLY BRETHREN, WHATSOEVER THINGS ARE TRUE, WHATSOEVER THINGS ARE HONEST, WHATSOEVER THINGS ARE JUST, WHATSOEVER THINGS ARE PURE, WHATSOEVER THINGS ARE LOVELY, WHATSOEVER THINGS ARE OF A GOOD REPORT, IF THERE BE ANY VIRTUE, AND IF THERE BE ANY PRAISE, THINK ON THESE THINGS. Phillipians 4:8.  

Just my thoughts today, I am not your judge, but maybe this could give you some thought to your own thoughts, and what you share.  

In Christ, and His love, Elena Ramirez

MORE THOUGHTS, ON THE MIND OF CHRIST


Sometimes, we can be bombarded, with negative feelings, doubt, pain, sorrow, low self-esteem, and just plain evil thoughts. Sometimes, we need instruction.

And one may wonder, where did that come from? We have to remember, we are spirits. That lives in a physical body. But our thoughts, come from the spirit realm. This is why it is so important, to know who we are in Christ.

As we grow, we begin to see who we are in Christ. But if you are not reading the word of God daily, renewing your mind, and praying, to God, who is a spirit, you may find yourself, sensing all of these negative feelings.

And I have to interject firmly, if you are not reading a Holy bible.  A King James Bible, you will not have the mind of Christ.  Other Bible versions, are not anointed, they are not holy, because they have been translated, and yes corrupted.  You want an incorruptible word from God.  Look at Gods word as a seed, you plant.  Remember Christ said, they would not be able to endure, and their roots would be pulled up by the devil.  Paraphrasing. This is what the true word says.

Matthew 13:4-6 And when he sowed, some seeds fell by the way side, and the fowls came and devoured them up:  Some fell upon stony places, where they had not much earth: and forthwith they sprung up because they had no deepness of earth.  And when the sun was up, they were scorched and because they had no root, they withered away.   

I Peter 1:23 Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever.  

You need to see, you do not want a word that has been changed, and corrupted.  Or you will be scorched, and wither without a true foundation.  To hold roots in Christ. You will not grow to be the person, God has called you to be.  The devil will fool you, deceive you, and if you do not change your Bible back to a King James Bible, you will not have the power, and anointing that you need, to have the mind of Christ.

These bible versions, are new, and meant for the times, to relate in our English language. But they have changed the context.  Do your own comparison.  But know this, they have disobeyed Revelation 22:18-19.  And their salvation is at stake.  Read it, from the King James.

Think of it though as a recipe.  For Gods word, is spiritual food.  But when you change the wording, it does not taste the same, nor does it have the power, it had by the King James Bible.

God established this holy word, for at least 400 years.  The King James Bible is authorized, with no copyrights.  The other bible versions do have copyrights.  They control the content, and context, and many of these versions, actually have scriptures missing.  I would not trust the validity of any of these other Bible versions.

And I am even going to go as far as to say, I do not listen to pastors, or evangelists, who do not use a pure word of God.  It brings a spirit of confusion, and it is a waste of time.  No matter, if the intentions are good, they are not a Holy word.  This is totally up to you, but I would warn my pastor, and I have.  Consequently, I am searching for a true Holy bible based church, that teaches from the King James Bible.  Because the last pastor I warned did not heed my words, the Lord gave to me.  But I know who I am in Christ, and I have the mind of Christ, in love, and fear to depart from something that would hold me back.  From growing spiritually.  I take each Holy word of God, from the King James Bible as a seed, and I apply it to my life, so it can grow.   So I can have the mind of Christ.

Christ told us, he gave us his mind. I Corinthian 2:16 FOR WHO HATH KNOWN THE MIND OF THE LORD, THAT HE MAY INSTRUCT HIM, BUT WE HAVE THE
MIND OF CHRIST.

We can have the mind of Christ. We must think, and react, as Christ did. As we get to know Christ, more, by his word, we begin, to get the confidence, we need. The strength. Because we see who HE is. Enabling us to see who we are in him.

Never, ever give into those negative thoughts. God will instruct you, if you need guidance.

Talking to God, knowing His truth, His Holy word, will give you, more, and more, His mind, to overcome all things. You live, move, and have your being, because of Christ. Take advantage of who you are in Christ, and tell those negative feelings, they have to Go. Really telling the devil, he has to go. As you submit to God, and resist the devil, those feelings will leave.

The mind of Christ will take over….

Putting on the helmet, of your salvation, (read Ephesians 6, that talks about the armor of God)

Be encouraged, be good to yourself, maybe take a walk with God, spend time in His word, but whatever you do, don’t let those negative feelings overtake you. You can do all things through Christ, who strengthens you. And never, ever forget, he does have a plan for you. Good thoughts, for a future and for hope….

Blessings, and much love,

Elena Ramirez

THE WISDOM OF “BALANCE” IN OUR MIND AND LIFE


Balance….Where do we relate to that?  Or the wisdom, of being balanced?

Politics relate to either the right or the left.  When describing the affiliations of my great country, the United States.  And it is easy to see, that both groups, are off balanced.  In a lot of ways.  Though, I myself, tend to look at ideals from the right.  As a conservative person.

One must always search for balance in our own personal lives, and in our own way.  Searching for it, from experiences, teachings, habits, etc.  But I have found, there is only one way, that one can obtain balance, and that is Jesus, for He is the way, the truth, and the life.  And no one, can come to God, but by him.  John 14:6. He has brought balance to my life.

The wisdom of God, in knowing how to “balance” ourselves, our situations, our time, our money, family, jobs, and more then anything our relationship with God, can only come from having a relationship with God.  Through Jesus Christ.

Life is hectic, and so many of us, can barely catch our breath.  To some, it is like a treadmill, and you cannot seem to get off.  You get up, go to work, come home, make dinner, clean house, attempt, to be with your family, for a few sweet hours, go to bed, and start all over again.

But in the time we are given in each day, we are called to make time for God.  We are called to pray without ceasing.  I Thessalonians 5:17.  That can be done, wherever you are, whatever you are doing, but it is so special, if you make a place and a time to do it.  That special time between you and God.  It takes real stamina, in many situations to try and juggle our time, and to balance out our attention, in many matters.  Thats life.

But as I share with you, on this topic of “balance”  I also want you to be able to relate it to your thinking.  And your thinking about God, and who he is, and also who you are in him.

Sometimes, when I listen to people, or hear their thoughts, I see, how unbalanced, their lives are.  Some turn to crutches, to be their balance, in addictions, to substances, drugs, drinking, sex, food, whatever, and this is not healthy.  It causes one to be unbalanced.    Holding onto the past, and past hurts, that can cause someone to be unbalanced.  Talking about the negative, instead of the positive, indicates an unbalance.  So many things can contribute to being unbalanced.  But one must see, they need God.

And how they need God.  How we all need to know, who we are in Christ.  How in Christ, we are made new.  How we become, a new person, through him.  That we are created in his image.   But some shun God, and when they do, they are closing the door, to the great things, God could do with their lives.  They are unbalanced.  They won’t receive their healing.  By not knowing Gods word, and his truth, this would cause anyone to be unbalanced.  Thats why, a commitment, to seek God through his word, will cause one to have a balanced life.  Because truth, will take the chains off of one to see, who they really can be in Christ.

My desire, and I commit this to God in my own thinking, and prayers, is that “Lord, I pray, my life is “balanced” in your ways.”

So that means, from time, to time, I have to study myself, as well, to see, if I am approved unto God a workman, a person, who is not ashamed, who is rightly dividing his truth. II Timothy 2:15 STUDY TO SHOW THYSELF APPROVED UNTO GOD, A WORKMAN THAT NEED NOT TO BE ASHAMED, RIGHTLY DIVIDING THE WORD OF TRUTH.

So, how does one rightly divide the truth of God, so their life is balanced?  It comes with prayer, and knowing Gods word, by meditating on it, by seeking God for this balance.  For only He can bless someone, to be effective and balanced.  His word tells us, that He does not like a false balance in our lives.  PROVERBS 11:1  A FALSE BALANCE IS ABOMINATION TO THE LORD: BUT A JUST WEIGHT IS HIS DELIGHT.  WHEN PRIDE COMES THEN COMES SHAME:  BUT WITH THE LOWLY IS WISDOM.

So, my question is, do you have pride when it comes to the matters of balance?  Do you think you can handle it on your own, without God?  Or perhaps, you are one of those people, who only seeks God, when you are in trouble.  Having pride, is off balance.  So, is only seeking God, when you are in trouble.  Do you see the comparison?  The balance is off, in both of those situations.  Because one should be seeking God, in prayer at all times, and reading his word, searching for God, at all times. Pride, and disobedience to God, in any form, can cause our lives to be off balance.

The key to living a balanced life, I believe, is in trusting God, being obedient, being loving to him, and to others, and to remember, life is a gift from God.  What we do with our lives, is our gift back to God.

One of the gifts God has given to us is rest.  If someone is not rested, and they are continually going on and on, they are burning the candle at both ends.  God talks about resting, on the seventh day.  This day is a time, to seek God, and to rest.  If it spent on anything else, the balance is again off.  God places his word, in our lives, to seek him.  He has established principles, that are put into effect, for our benefit.  But if his word, is just gaining dust on a bookshelf, you will never gain true balance.

Everyone, has their own cross, to carry.  We all have things we have to deal with and how we handle those situations, I pray, comes at least for me to say in my own life, is God, I need you to help me.  I need you to balance this out for me.  So that my thinking is clear, and I am reacting by your love, and grace, not by the law, so I am off balance.  But by who I can be, in Christ.

I need wisdom, and balance, and that only comes by the fear of the Lord.  Knowing He is God, who controls my life, and the destination of my soul, after I die.  He is able, in everything, and in anything, that concerns me.  Submitting to God, resisting, the devil.  Realizing, I need to let go of pride, or anything, that would stop the plan of God in my life.  Bringing my sins, to the cross. Not doing anything about this, will cause me NOT to be balanced.  So, I have to look at his word, and like a mirror, it will reflect who I am.  FOR NOW WE SEE THROUGH A GLASS, DARKLY, BUT THEN FACE TO FACE:NOW I KNOW IN PART, BUT THEN SHALL I KNOW EVEN AS ALSO I AM KNOWN.  I Corinthians 13:12

Do you remember, when Christ called his disciple, to walk on the water?  If he had not had the fear, or the trepidation,  and instead, had faith, he could have accomplished that.  He could have walked on the water, and Jesus, would have held his hand.  He could have walked on water, balanced.

And as I conclude; I want you to examine your own thoughts.  Whether they are good or evil.  Weigh them.  Do they balance out?  If they are not based on God, and his word, they would be evil.  That goes back to the word again. WHO CAN SAY, I HAVE MADE MY HEART CLEAN, I AM PURE FROM MY SIN.  DIVERS WEIGHTS AND DIVERS MEASURES BOTH OF THEM ARE ALIKE ABOMINATION TO THE LORD.  PROVERBS 20:9-10. You are open, to evil, even though, you may not realize it.  And your thoughts, will submit to the devil, because you have not made Christ your protection.  Christ can be your shepherd.  And protect you. You can have the mind of Christ.  (Read I Corinthians 2:16)

And, I know, this may sound harsh, to put it in this perspective, but it is true, and it goes back to the fear of God. THE FEAR OF THE LORD TENDETH TO LIFE; AND HE THAT HATH IT SHALL ABIDE SATISFIED, HE SHALL NOT BE VISITED WITH EVIL.  Proverbs 19:23. No one wants evil to visit them, in any way.  So I implore you go to the throne of God.  (Below is my Prayer of Salvation.)

We have to move, ourselves, from that place of who we are, in the natural, but believing, who He is in the supernatural.  Little by little, we can do it.  We can balance ourselves, to grow, to be the best we can be, because of who He is.  It is a balance, that we must take one step at a time.  But holding his hand through it.  You can walk it.  You can walk the tight rope of life, one step at a time, not falling, but holding onto God, his truth, his love, and compassion, and you can walk, the walk God intended for you.  In your spirit, in your mind, in your thinking, in all ways.  For He is the way.  Balanced.

Just my thoughts, Elena Ramirez


FOR I THE LORD LOVE JUDGMENT, I HATE ROBBERY FOR BURNT OFFERING, AND I WILL DIRECT THEIR WORK IN TRUTH, AND I WILL MAKE AN EVERLASTING COVENANT WITH THEM.  ISAIAH 61:8

Father, my Prayer of Hope….as I seek you, I can find balance, for it is to keep you at the center of my life.  In my thinking, my soul, my spirit, in my love.  In all things I ask for balance, to have discernment, of your truth, and ways.  Lord, I submit myself to you, to know who I can be, with Christ within me.  In your sons holy name, our Lord.  Jesus.  I thank you, and praise you for this.  Let this overfill, if anything, let me express always how grateful I am to the point, it brings you glory, and honor.  Tipping the scales of anything else, to bless you my Lord, for being my Lord and savior.  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.

HOW TO RECOGNIZE YOU HAVE A SPIRIT OF PRIDE ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


Please Note:  This is a chapter in my upcoming book:  “Behavioral Curses That Change With Christ To Blessings.”  

This post is probably one of my most popular posts that gets daily attention.  I put this chapter in my book, because it is something people have a problem with.  You will note the reference here and there to the book as you read it.  If interested in ordering my book in the future stay informed, by subscribing to my blog.

Likewise, ye younger, submit yourselves unto the elder.  Yea, all of you by subject one to another, and be clothed with humility:  for God resisteth the proud, and giveth grace to the humble.  I Peter 5:5

As I am about to close this book, I sense how important this last subject is.  Pride.  I believe the Lord, wants me to write about this.  He wants you to know this truth. I believe even more so, because God hates it.  That proud look comes from pride.  But ponder on this scripture as well, because these are behaviors, that you can break, so God will not hate them in you.  Christ my friends, can take these things God hates away from you.

These six things doth the Lord hate:  seven are an abomination unto Him:  A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, an heart that deviseth wicked imagnations, feet that be swift in running to mischief, a false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren. Proverbs 6:16-19

And because of who He is and what Christ has done for me, in my own behavior, I want to serve God, but I cannot if these things would be evident.  So when He wants me to, do anything, I want to obey.  I want to have an open heart, soft, and pliable, not hard, not blocking my own blessings.  When He wants me to do something, it is usually for my benefit, and others.

So when I write, to sort out His feelings on paper, I know He will speak to me and to others.  So, as I write this, I just want to acknowledge this.

I will take it to heart.  I want to please God.  I just love His presence.

We all want to be blessed by God.  We all seek an answer, from Him.  Even if it is just a small prayer, we hope for an answer.  I am only talking about Christians now.

For there, definitely is a difference between a Christian and someone who does not know truth, from Gods word.

Yet, as a Christian, we can be naive, if we do not know what the word of God says.  The reason, this only applies to Christians, is because, if you have accepted, Christ as your Lord, and savior, you have humbled yourself in the sight of God.  You have seen you are a sinner, who needs a savior.  You have sensed, and felt the love of God.

Thereby putting your “pride” aside, to call on God almighty.

A non-Christian has not.  They will not admit there is a God.  They will not admit, He rules the world.  That He created Heaven and Earth.  And yes, even Hell, where He will send those that deny him.

They will not see, that He created us in His image.  That He created us, to have a relationship with him.  They will not see, His love.  They will not give their hearts to him, to change.  This is pride.

I cannot even imagine not being able to run to God, when I am in need, or when I have a problem. Yet, there are some who deny God, but when they have a problem they might consider calling on Him but at this point, one should be aware.

To know one might not get an answer to prayer. Even, if they cry out to God.  This is why as a Christian we do not take advantage of our Salvation. We do not take advantage of grace God gives us, because if we mess up, we might not get help or an answer from God.

There they cry, but none giveth answer, because of the pride of evil men. Job 35:12

What stopped someone from calling on God?  What is it that makes anyone choose to sin?  The devil. This is pride. 

This characteristic that sometimes cannot be seen is the pride of the devil.  Remember, his agenda, was to be better than God.  If you see that in any form, or that form of pride, know that does not come from God, but from his enemy.

The wicked, through the pride of his countenance, will not seek after God: God is not in all his thoughts.  Psalms 10:4.

And God does hate pride.  He sees it.  He knows it, and will not bless us, when we have it.

Psalms 138:6  Though the Lord be high, yet hath he respect unto the lowly, but the proud, he knoweth afar off.

So, we have to see there are principles there are things that can either block, or allow our blessings to come from God.  We need to know the difference.

Pride is something that is not talked about much.  Or at least, I have not heard this message.  But, I don’t want to have a spirit of pride.  So I have studied this, and tried to understand.

I know that this is a spirit that I must avoid in any shape or form.  As a behavior I have to be aware of it. I don’t want that to be a characteristic of fruit that would be displayed in my life.  I don’t want pride, because I want to please God, in fear of my Lord.

The fear of the Lord is to hate evil: pride, and arrogancy, and the evil way, and the froward mouth, do I hate.  Proverbs 8:13.

Yet, in many Christians lives this characteristic, is evident.  Why?  Maybe we are not always aware we have that pride?….

Or maybe, we just want to do it our own way.  And yet, have God bless us.  Hmmmm.

Did you know pride blocks love?

Well, these are some things God has brought to my heart, to share.  I hope, and because it is the last chapter of the book, and we are searching to change behaviors, that are curses, into blessings, by Christ, I pray we would all take it to heart.

I know we probably could all on agree this, but you and I want answers from God.

I want to have a right attitude before him.  He sees our hearts.  He sees everything. We cannot hide, and if we know that, it really does bring things into perspective.

He sees, how we deal with one another, and He sees, whether or not, we are making the attempt, to obey him, and to identify anything that is in our character or behavior and it is a flaw and whether or not that we do try to rectify it.  Because if we do not this will lead to the legal issue of the devil having rule over you.

Not a novice, lest being lifted up with pride he fall into the condemnation of the devil.  I Timothy 3:6.

You want to break that behavior, so the enemy does not have a legal right to condemn you, and you need Christ. To be honest, this is something, that someone has to work on over, and over again, in a Christian’s life. Mindful of pride and mindful of the consequences of it.

Being in denial, is pride.  Letting it go, in one ear, and out the other, and not seeing it, and not making the attempt, to be mindful of it, to not change, can cause a person, to be out of control.

And if that happens, God will step in and correct you.  And that can be very harsh, in some circumstances.  I would rather see it now, to avoid, the wrath of God.  For God is a good God, but one thing, I know, the fear of the Lord, is the beginning of wisdom……

When pride is evident, the truth of the matter is that you may be put into a situation where you will become ashamed. See this scripture.

When pride cometh, then cometh shame:  but with the lowly is wisdom.  Proverbs 11:2

The following points are indicators you have pride:

1.  You have “pride” when God tells you to do something, and you do not obey.  That could be from keeping his commandments, or just a small prompting from the Holy Spirit to do something.  That is pride.

2.  You have pride, when you are rebellious.  It could be from someone, in authority.  You have a hard time submitting to authority, or even on an equal basis.  Submitting to anyone.

3. You may have pride or be dismissive, when someone shares their faith in God.  You get turned off.  You know what is right, from wrong, and you may hear the truth but there is something that just annoys you so much, that when someone expresses their faith you shut down, or you want to shut them down either way you choose to do your thing anyway.  And dismiss truth.

That is a characteristic of pride. This scripture is a strong warning to see the result, of having pride with a Christian.  God protects His people.

This shall they have for their pride, because they have reproached and magnified themselves against the people of the Lord of hosts. Zephaniah 2:10

4.  You have pride, when you won’t budge, you won’t compromise to be humble, or extend grace, in a matter.  Even if you are right.  Being right or wrong is irrelevant to you. You are not flexible. You want to control the end result (like the devil) and you will not forgive yourself, to even give a little compromise in any matter or to lighten up on your stance.

You see, God extends grace to us, and He is always right.  But do we do the same for others?  Think about the example, in the Bible, when the mans debt was forgiven, but when he went out into the world, He would not forgive, he did not extend that same grace, He had been forgiven.  And He had the servant thrown into prison.  That was pride.

5.   Pride, is not admitting you are wrong.  Or even the possibility, you could be wrong.  You shut down communication.  Not open to hear, not open to listen, not open, to receive.  How sad…

6.   Pride, is looking down on others, thinking you are better than someone else.  Though, you have been forgiven, of sin.  You look at others, and judge them.  You, forget, the suffering you may have gone through, but you see yourself, as holier than thou.  You have turned the righteousness, of God, into your own “self-righteousness.”  And don’t think just because you are a Christian, that you cannot have pride. Because the enemy will target you specifically so he can enter that spirit of pride in, you.  More so if you are not aware of the devils devices.

7.  Pride is also evident, and I hear the Lord, say this, especially to me now, for I have done this.  Pride is being inferior, to someone, in a different approach.

In other words, I have sometimes let someone intimidate me or even allowed them to persecute me not recognizing my own strengths and I did this growing up, etc.  But pride can be, where you do not see you can be the best you can be.  And you see others, as superior or better than you.

Why?  It is really an unhealthy sense of lack of pride that causes one to become off balance.  And someone mean spirited and prideful, can use that to their advantage.

The wicked in His pride doth persecute the poor: let them be taken in the devices that they have imagined.  Psalms 10:2

I have learned this.  But God is not a respecter of persons.  He loves us all the same.  We are all, called to be his children.  So you cannot relinquish your confidence, to someone, and lose yourself by being in denial of who you are in Christ.

This is pride to not admit you need to boost your own confidence, in Him and by accepting yourself as someone’s stepping stone or yes, punching bag.  This is really sick pride.

Either we choose to recognize this and see He created us in his image, or we do not. Either we see His truth, and embrace it, or we do not, because pride, has blinded us.

Self-esteem should not be from our own ability or our accomplishments but from Him for He created us in his image.  He is the one that gave us the gift that we excel at, whatever it may be, that we do well at.  If you are conceited to think its all you, this is pride.

8.  Pride will be evident, when one is jealous of someone else.  Of their accomplishments, or their attributes, or even the way they look.

A person with pride they don’t reach out, they don’t try to be friendly or nice, because basically the pride won’t let them.  The jealousy stops that.  So, in some strange way, by denying even the existence, of someone, that is pride.

 When we see that, we can get rid of the defensive, attitude, the guard, and be the person, Christ, is within us.

  1.   Pride is being very high minded, puffed up, overly arrogant and not reasonable to extend grace to yourself or others.

It is so important to be mindful of this, and I tried to give here, different scenarios of behavior to recognize it.   So you can see it, take it to Christ, and break the curse of it.

You need to know how it can stop you and hurt you.  It is o.k. to have confidence, but if you are off balance in anything, you will not find your best attributes, to excel at if pride is in the way.

If you are being prideful, and not seeing who you can be in Christ, you can miss out on doing great things for God, and others.

Don’t let that pride stop the blessings of God in your life, or being the best you can be, meeting your potential.

God just put this on my heart, and this goes hand in hand.  But we can recognize how great God is, and how he teaches us his ways….

We cannot help and love him and give him glory and honor him.  I say this from my heart, because I know the difference.

His goal:

Is for us to be the best we can be.  Through Him through the sacrifice of Jesus Christ.  Christ had no pride, as He gave of himself, suffered, and went to the cross.

Our goal:

 Is to obey, with a good heart, and attitude, not out of a begrudging thought.  Making it a burden.  Realizing with humbleness, how precious our salvation is, and pride blocks our relationship with Him.  

Why do we want to get rid of pride? Because He is so good, He is so merciful.  He is so wonderful.  He is God.  And what Christ did on the cross, for us, takes the penalty of sin away.  It takes death away, for we have a pardon.  We have been spared. So why would anyone not want to give their heart to Christ, to take that pride away.

In conclusion, when we stop and change and see that behavior.  The curse is broken. When we take it to Christ, and repent. When we start by learning how to be humble.  Remember. The Lord lifts the humble, but turns from the proud.

Being humble, is just really trying to be nice.  To be giving, of your heart, to be courteous, and to extend, graciousness, will remove pride. You cannot have pride, if you are purposely being aware to be humble.  It will go away this spirit of pride. Because the spirit of Christ, the Holy spirit will remove it.

This scripture, reminds us what we should do with our friends, or to make the attempt to be friendly.

Do this now, my son, and deliver thyself, when thou art come into the hand of thy friend; go, humble thyself and make sure thy friend.  Proverbs 6:3

Again and I reiterate, being humble is not being a pushover or a stepping stone.  You have to find that sweet balance away from pride and being humble, and mix love with it, in a surrendering form of love, to God.

Love will be evident.  For God is love…..

Love, covers a multitude of sins, and when we see the characteristic, of pride.  We can change it, by prayer, by departing from that, and by knowing what Gods word says about pride.  He says a lot….So you and I need to know.

And as I conclude this be forewarned concerning pride.  For if someone knew in advance they would be warned. But when troubles happen, and one knew about having pride, and continued with this spirit, this bad behavior, this is the consequence.

Pride goeth before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall. Proverbs 16:18.

You have a homework assignment.  So do I.  God wants you to look up scriptures on pride, and being proud.  Will you do it?  Or will you let that pride in again?  I am going to look them up even today………….

Blessings, and Just my thoughts,  Elena Ramirez

And I will dash them one against another, even the fathers and the sons together, saith the Lord : I will not pity, nor spare, nor have mercy, but destroy them. Hear ye, and give ear; be not proud: for the Lord hath spoken. Give glory to the Lord your God, before he cause darkness, and before your feet stumble upon the dark mountains, and, while ye look for light, he turn it into the shadow of death, and make it gross darkness. But if ye will not hear it, my soul shall weep in secret places for your pride; and mine eye shall weep sore, and run down with tears, because the Lord’s flock is carried away captive. (Jeremiah 13:14-17 KJV)

My Prayer of Hope,

Father, today, I will search my heart, and your word, concerning pride, and being proud.  I hereby, give myself to you, to correct.  Oh Lord, I don’t want to miss anything in this, and I want to study myself, because truly being corrected by you, means, I am missing it.  I do not want to miss this.  But, if I am doing something wrong, in any area of my life, I give you permission to show me, where, and how.  So I can change.  I don’t want pride to stop the flow of my blessings.  I know you lift the humble, and turn from the proud.  So, I want to be humble in your sight.  Lord, help me, help us, the body of Christ, to see this.  And to turn from it.  When we act like this, we act like those who do not know you.  I do not want that to be a part of who I am.  In Jesus name, humbly I ask.  Amen

PRIDE WILL STEAL YOUR BLESSINGS….

https://elenasjustmythoughts.wordpress.com/2014/07/18/pride-will-steal-your-blessings-by-christian-author-elena-ramirez/

 

WHO IS YOUR COUNSELOR? (THE MANY REASONS CHRIST IS MINE)


What a friend, I have in Christ, what a great counselor.  There is no one like him.  Even among all my friends, (and I have some wise friends)  All I have to do is, yell out, in prayer.  “Help me Father, I need your counsel today, guide me please.”

And he is there, for any situation, dilemma, problem, or situation, That, I just cannot figure out on my own.  And even if I can figure it out.  I could be wrong.  But, He is there.  And He answers me, and gives me advice.  The sweetest of counsel, with peace, that surpasses, all understanding, because I know it comes from him, especially, when I take the advice, and I see the results.  Wow!!

In todays world, we are inundated, with so many, programs, and self-help groups.  Cults, religions, therapies, and how-to-do-life methods, that one, can get confused.   Life is not easy, even for the Christian.  But it just makes me wonder, to ask this, is Christ your counselor?  And if not, why would you trust any other source of counseling for your life, and more importantly, for your spiritual life?

I bring this to your attention, because I want to provoke you to look at your life, at your choices, you are making.  I do this, not to provoke you, to anger, but to provoke you, in love.  Hebrews 10:24  And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works:

Because God loves you, and because, you need to see this.  Because if God loves, you, I am called to love you as well.  So, I hope you see that.  Instead, of making you angry.  But, let’s talk about where you get your counseling from.

Is your counselor, for wealth? That, you seek counseling, for prosperity?  From New Age thinking? The Bible warns us about that.  JOB 3:14 WITH KINGS AND COUNSELLORS OF THE EARTH, WHICH BUILT DESOLATE PLACES FOR THEMSELVES.

Is your life, your soul, a desolate place?

Money cannot fill that void of counsellor.  And we really need to see what we are looking to give us that consolation.  For the Bible tells us, what does it gain us, if we get the world, but we lose our souls.  Mark 8:36.  

And as I touch on this, who are you giving your money to, for counsel?  Is it a psychic, or someone, who claims to have credentials, in this area, but they just listen, and do not give you good godly advice?  We must always be careful, who we seek counsel from.  And more importantly, would God advise it?  

See # 7, and the scripture, Isaiah 30:1, that supports this thought, it offends God.

When Christ is not our savior, when we walk alone, when we choose to leave him out of our lives, out of our hearts, our souls, our minds, we are desolate.  We try to fill up that void, by building ourselves up, in our own pride, or by money, drugs, or whatever.  And we are bleakly, desolate.

But there is no one like Christ.  I know this from experience, for I walked many years without him. But when I accepted Christ, no matter what I went through, I knew I could go to him.  And he takes away that “desolate” feeling.  No matter what.  So, this is why Christ is my counselor, according to scripture:

1.  There is no greater counsel, then that of the Lord.

THERE IS NO WISDOM NOR UNDERSTANDING NOR COUNSEL AGAINST THE LORD.  PROVERBS 21:30

2.  God sees everything, so it just makes good sense, to seek his counsel.

GREAT IN COUNSEL, AND MIGHTY IN WORK:  FOR THINE EYES ARE OPEN UPON ALL THE WAYS OF THE SONS OF MEN:  TO GIVE EVERYONE ACCORDING TO HIS WAYS, AND TO THE FRUIT OF HIS DOINGS.  JEREMIAH 32:19

3.  God guides me, and then when my life is done on earth, He will receive me in his Kingdom.

THOU SHALT GUIDE ME WITH THY COUNSEL, AND AFTERWARD RECEIVE ME TO GLORY.  PSALM 73:24

4.  God gives me confidence, by his oath, to know, he does not lie.  And, he is my strongest consolation, in life.

WHEREIN GOD, WILLING MORE ABUNDANTLY TO SHOW UNTO THE HEIRS OF PROMISE, THE IMMUTABILITY (immutable – adjective unchanging over time or unable to be changed : an immutable fact.)OF HIS COUNSEL, CONFIRMED IT BY AN OATH:  THAT BY TWO IMMUTABLE THINGS WHICH, IT WAS IMPOSSIBLE FOR GOD TO LIE, WE MIGHT HAVE A STRONG CONSOLATION, WHO HAVE FLED FOR REFUGE TO LAY HOLD UPON THE HOPE SET BEFORE US.  HEBREWS 6:17-18

5.  Gods counsel helps me to know, he will bring his truth to the light, so I do not have to judge.      (I love this, I Praise you Father God.)

THEREFORE, JUDGE NOTHING BEFORE THE TIME, UNTIL THE LORD, COMES WHO BOTH WILL BRING TO LIGHT THE HIDDEN THINGS OF DARKNESS, AND WILL MAKE MANIFEST THE COUNSEL OF THE HEARTS, AND THEN EVERY MAN HAVE PRAISE OF GOD.  I CORINTHIANS 4:5

6.  God teaches me his word, and His counsel instructs me.

FOR HIS GOD DOES INSTRUCT HIM TO DISCRETION AND DOES TEACH HIM.  THIS ALSO COMES FROM THE LORD OF HOST WHICH IS WONDERFUL IN COUNSEL AND EXCELLENT IN WORKING.  ISAIAH 28:26 & 29

7.  I see without the counsel of God, I would be rebellious, and in sin.  And I do not want that in my life.

WOE TO THE REBELLIOUS CHILDREN, SAITH THE LORD, THAT TAKE COUNSEL BUT NOT OF ME, AND THAT COVER WITH A COVERING BUT NOT OF MY SPIRIT, THAT THEY MAY ADD SIN TO SIN.  ISAIAH 30:1

8.  I Know him by his name….

FOR UNTO US A CHILD IS BORN, UNTO US A SON IS GIVEN:  AND THE GOVERNMENT SHALL BE UPON HIS SHOULDER;  AND HIS NAME SHALL BE CALLED WONDERFUL, COUNSELLOR, THE MIGHTY GOD, THE EVERLASTING FATHER, THE PRINCE OF PEACE.  ISAIAH 9:6

9.  The counsel of God reminds me, that he is the only God.  There is no one else like God.  And that will stand for eternity.  He knows the beginning, and the end, of what will happen.

REMEMBER THE FORMER THINGS OF OLD:  FOR I AM GOD, AND THERE IS NONE ELSE; I AM GOD, AND THERE IS NONE LIKE ME.  DECLARING THE END FROM THE BEGINNING, AND FROM ANCIENT TIMES THE THINGS THAT ARE NOT YET DONE, SAYING, MY COUNSEL SHALL STAND, AND I WILL DO ALL MY PLEASURE.  ISAIAH 46:9-10

In Conclusion:  How I yearn for his sweet counsel.  How I treasure, his voice, and wisdom, to guide me, in life.  For yes, life can be hard.  It can be shaky.  We are all so fragile, and when we do not seek him, and his counsel, we can easily fall apart.  Like humpty dumpty.  Or we can be like the walking wounded.  Numb, from life, numb, from the hurts of others, and life.  So, I long to be at his side.  To be his friend, and yet knowing, he is my great shepherd.  We are not equals.  He is God. I cannot see, life right, or correctly unless He unveils truth to my eyes.  Thats why, he renews my mind, as I seek him.  By his word.  By the power of his love.  By prayer, to seek his counsel.  I pray, you seek him, to be your counsellor.  For his love, gave of his life, as the sacrifice, just so you can know the difference, to seek him, as counsellor.  By accepting him, as Lord, and savior.  The counsel, you need, will always be yours.  And you can call him, your counsellor, as well.  

p.s. We know, that the devil tempted Adam and Eve. And look what happened. Have you ever thought, what would have happened, if they had gone to God, first, and asked him, if the lie, the devil told, was truth or not? God would have given them the truth. He is telling you now, don’t make the same mistake. You are not sure about something…go to God, he won’t lead you wrong. You can avoid the sin. Go to God, for the answer…..

Just my Thoughts, with his love, Elena Ramirez

My Prayer of Hope….

My Lord, my Father, to you be the glory.  All honor, and all praise.  For who you are.  For the things you have done.  And continue to do.  For by your blood, you have saved me.  And with all of your power, you have raised me.  Lord, yes to you be all glory, for the things you teach me, counsel me, and give me wisdom, to live by.  Lord, continue to live in my life, and may my life be pleasing unto you.  If I become successful in anything, or prosperous, it is because of your counsel.  I don’t want anything, if it does not come from you.  From your truth, your love your ways.  Lord, there are so many ways to get counsel from.  But, I don’t want anyone, or anything else, if it does not please you, or it does not have the foundation of you.  Oh Lord, help us to seek you to be counsellor.  We need you.  This world needs you.  Even now, I think of the gulf, and the oil spill.  They could have wisdom, a way to stop this spill, and a way to clean it up, if they would only seek you.  After all you are the creator of heaven and earth.  Lord, you the counsellor of my heart, soul and mind.  And I just know, you are the way, the truth, and the life.  Thank you Father, In Jesus name.  Amen
