DO YOU STEAL YOUR OWN BLESSINGS? By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_3150.jpgI prayed about this dream that I had.  I won’t give the details but. …. I felt like the Lord, was telling me, we can steal our own blessings.  By the things we do.  So it made me think, even to write this.  

Because if I can help you see, I know I am helping myself as well.  It reinforces us, as the body of Christ….But if there is something we are doing that is stealing our own blessings, we need to recognize it.  I want to.  To obey God.  So it made me think….

By the short cuts we take.  By cutting corners, in even not give God praise, or thanks.  Where we are silent, when we should be shouting to the rafters who we are in Christ. By maybe even taking advantage of a situation…. hmm. 

Today, we went and had a breakfast, after losing something.  And we found it.  But not after prayer.  This thing was lost.  Where it was found, it had been searched in that same place, five times.  Yet it was missed.  But I prayed, and I prayed hard.

When I prayed today, there was a break through.  It was as if, I knew, that I knew God heard me.  And it was as if God was telling me, for the big thing I want, I need to press in like that, for a little thing.  Pray with faith…. not just words. 

Well, we went to eat breakfast out.  We ordered.  Hubby, during our breakfast, wanted a cup of coffee.  We tried to get our waitresses, attention, but she did not see.  So I flagged down the bus boy.  He got the coffee.  When she came back, we told her, but she did not add it to our bill.  So when we went up to the register, we told the cashier, and she was so impressed, she said its good to be honest.  

I told her; “We don’t want to lose our own blessings.  And it dawned on me, we can lose our own blessings, we can “steal” from ourselves!  My dream was prophetic….

And so if we do, if we even give the enemy an inch, and call that a blessing, but if it is, by wrong doing….that is wrong in the sight of the Lord.

Yesterday, someone asked for prayer.  I felt the Holy spirit tell me, give this scripture, and make sure, they know its to be claimed from a KJV for the holiness, and anointing.

A couple of people responded, and one said, whats the difference, they are all the same.  I explained, that they are not.  I explained, that God has given many scriptures, not to change, add, or delete scripture.  

Then one other person, who wanted to argue, told me, that what we are doubting who God is, and His power, by merely a bible version.  He said, we are to trust the Holy spirit.  To lead us.  

I told him, he could use whatever version he wanted.  But, how could the Holy spirit, be in a lie?  How can that be Holy?  How can that be God leading us?…..When these versions, have been corrupted, when they disobeyed God, by changing them?

Well the lady who was a friend on that post, deleted my comment.  And it ticked me off.  Not because I wanted to argue or debate it, but these are the words from God not me.  I had given Deuteronomy 4:2, and Revelation 22:18-19.  She deleted Gods word.  That ticked me off.

And so, I found this scripture below, because I needed a word.  

I believe in truth, but I asked God to help me maintain my peace in this matter.  This person, was now arguing with the Holy spirit not me.  So I was released.  But I did unfriend her, without even arguing about it. 

BUT THEY MOCKED THE MESSENGERS OF GOD, AND DESPISED HIS WORDS, AND MISUSED HIS PROPHETS, UNTIL THE WRATH OF THE LORD AROSE AGAINST HIS PEOPLE, TILL THERE WAS NO REMEDY.  II CHRONICLES 36:16.  KJV.  

Friends, I just feel like not only can we steal from ourselves.  But if we think God is silent, in a matter, and perhaps we do not see His correction, we can think we are getting away with something.  There will be a time, the wrath of God will be revealed.  Look at that scripture again…..

When in truth, as well, we are “stealing” from ourselves.  

Many of you know how I feel about this, when it comes to only using a King James bible.  And you mock me. You don’t believe me.  It goes in one ear and out the other.  You don’t even respond any more.  

These are His words, that you are despising, if you do not obey God, by only using a KJV.  

But I am not argue about it.  Like I did not argue with that lady. It felt good, to just say, Lord you take care of it.  But I don’t want to be unequally yoked with darkness.  

Look all I can say, and you can judge yourself.  Do you steal your own blessings?  Is there a reason, your answer is not coming through?  If you are believing half truths, and half lies from a corrupt Bible…..

Isn’t that stealing from yourself?

Just a thought,

Elena Ramirez

A must read for someone wondering about generational curses etc. And why we do some of the things we do….

GIVING GOD ALL THE GLORY…..HONOR AND PRAISE!

I myself, personally, and may the record show. I want to be someone to give God the glory. The Honor, and the praise. Christ told us, if HE be lifted up, He would draw all men to HIM.

How does that happen? Well I think one way, is by giving God the glory. By acknowledging HIM. By not being timid, when you are around people, or denying who He is.

The world does that. They deny God. But you are called to be set apart, for the plan of God, and giving God glory, includes not being ashamed of HIM. Are you ashamed you are a Christian? Oh dear friends, what a deception that is to the body of Christ.

You know, I see this so clearly, but when we do not give God the glory, honor and praise. It steals from God, and it steals from us. For if we, would just shout it out, and give God glory due His name. Yes this world would be a better place. Scripture says, in all thy ways acknowledge HIM. To be directed by HIM. (paraphrasing Proverbs 3:6. King James.)

I don’t want the glory. I want to hide in His beautiful presence, and just see HIS glory draw people to HIM. And I make this point, prominent, because the enemy has always tried to steal the glory from God. From the beginning. Thats why God kicked the devil out of heaven. Because the enemy was jealous. And folks, if you see that characteristic of wanting to get glory, that is a spirit, that is not of God. Run to the throne and humble yourself in the sight of God.  REPENT. And start giving God the glory. In all your ways.

For He is magnificent, and there are no words to describe how great He is. No let me rephrase that, for as I give God glory, I want to direct people to His Holy word.  And the King James Bible does give God glory.  Nothing missing or broken from this Bible.  Not corrupt.

But I want my life to show I tried to give HIM glory.

AND I, IF I BE LIFTED UP FROM THE EARTH, WILL DRAW ALL MEN UNTO ME. JOHN 12:32.

DAYDREAM YOUR BEST DREAM~WRITE THE VISION~WRITE YOUR PRAYER


Habakkuk 2:2

And the Lord answered me, and said, Write the vision and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it.  

As a writer, I know, the power, I have to write. I know, I can create an atmosphere, to be an expression, of who I am in Christ. And I can use my words, to either build up or destroy.

I always want to be careful to choose my words carefully.I want to bless God, and bless you, his people. I want people, to see the goodness of God. That miracles are available. That all things are possible, because of who He is. That Christ died for you, so you can live abundantly.

I always want to be an expression of love…… I always want to be writing, whatever HE puts on my heart, because I see myself, as a servant of God.

Well, today, I want to inspire you. And perhaps, encourage you. You may be daydreaming about something. Did you know that is a vision God has given to you? This photograph, confirms that! His word, is that confirmation!

He knows everything about you, every thought, every hope, and dream. Today, there may be something on your heart, you long for. Something, you may want, or desire. It could be that vacation, that big house, that healing….A new business.  An idea, you want to turn into a reality…..

Whatever it is…..

Now, pull out a pen and pencil, and write it down. Yes write it down. You don’t have to make a lengthy expression, unless you want to. It could just be a paragrah. But be specific. Its your vision!  It is now a prayer.

Then look up a scripture that would support that promise from God, and claim it. Write it down! Now, keep it in your Bible, or a place, where you will see it often.  This is your prayer….to remind you of Gods promises!

Yesterday, I daydreamed. That was my vision. And, I don’t do that often, but I know God put this on my heart. And whenever God puts it on my heart, I want to be faithful, to him, and to others, to share, to bless God, and you.

Have a wonderful day, in the Lord.

Write your vision….and see God do a new thing! After all its his word.  It is prayer….a reminder to you, and God, of Gods wonderful promises.  Don’t let the dream go!

AND THY SERVANT IS IN THE MIDST OF THY PEOPLE WHICH THOU HAST CHOSEN, A GREAT PEOPLE, THAT CANNOT BE NUMBERED, NOR COUNTED FOR MULTITUDE. GIVE THEREFORE THY SERVANT AN UNDERSTANDING HEART TO JUDGE THY PEOPLE, THAT I MAY DISCERN BETWEEN GOOD AND BAD; FOR WHO IS ABLE TO JUDGE THIS THY GREAT SO GREAT A PEOPLE? AND THE SPEECH PLEASED THE LORD…..I Kings 3:9

Much love in Christ, and Praise be to my Lord, God through Jesus Christ. Holy Spirit, Inspire us….

Elena Ramirez

p.s. Feel free to share this….so others, can be inspired, by their visions as well. You may very well, be making someones dreams come true….Including yours!

Father, I praise you, Lord, you know my vision is to serve you, and I do claim my hearts desire.  I have obeyed you in this, and written the vision down.  It is my prayer, and I believe it is point of contact, to remind you, and myself, that you will do this great thing.  Thank you Lord, for this witty idea, and may it bless others as well.  For their dreams to become a vision, that will turn into a prayer.  In Jesus name.  Amen

VACATIONING AND TRUSTING GOD IN FLORIDA…..


Hi Everyone,

Well, I don’t know if anybody noticed, but I have not been writing my Prayers of Hope, lately.  The reason, I took a vacation, with my family, back to Florida.  Beautiful Florida.  Thank you Lord.   I love Florida….I would love to move there.  And I trust God, for this desire of my heart.  His will be done.

I have felt God there, on so many occasions, so when I go there, I feel like my cup is being filled.  I sense God there more.  I guess because it is so unusual, with the Everglades, and the ocean in everyones back yard.  A beach is always just minutes away, if you live on the coast.  But to me it is more…..It is God.

For some reason, I felt like everything came together for us to take this trip.  It was God, so I will just give him all the praise and glory, even as I write this.

In this event, for a reason to go, there was one thing on my heart, that I felt a precedence for, and that was to pray over the waters in the gulf for healing, and I did do that.  I laid hands on the waters and prayed the waters would be healed, and that they would stop the oil from polluting it. Well funny thing, a day later, they fixed it.  Do I take credit for it?  No, I know others also prayed, but it sure was sweet to see it in the news.  So the glory goes to God.

And there again, I felt the presence of God.  Answers to prayer.  In Florida.  If you recall my testimony, the Best of God, (see Link below)  There God gave me a special gift.  Of the cross.  And spoke to my heart, that the best, I could ever get, would be the cross, and the gift, Christ gave for each one of us.  So, when I would go to the beach, I did not have any great expectations, or wants.  I just wanted God.  Remembering how he had answered my prayer, on our last visit, at the beach.

I just think it is somewhat ironic, though, and I will share a couple of small testimonies, but I felt Gods love, and protection, and favor, with provision.  His sweet presence.  I did feel closer to God in my relationship.  And I felt the answer to many prayers.  Small and big.

We had God’s favor to begin with, concerning places to stay there.  This trip came together so effortlessly.  For one thing, I met a friend, who I will cherish forever, who shared her condo, for only $250.00 a week, and we took advantage of it.  She is trying to sell it, for a great, great price.  (contact me for more information)   It is in Clearwater, and we were able to go here and there, and have that for a home base.  But after that, we traveled to the Keys, and up and down the coast, and also got free accomodations, from the Marriot, elite membership.

Then while we were at the Keys, we lost our debit card.  But again, there was Gods favor and protection, and we were able to locate the place that we lost it, and they did not use it illegally, or hurt us in that way.  So I did see Gods hand there.  HIS PROTECTION.  I felt Gods love so much so.  I can’t even explain it, but I felt him there.

Well, then we returned to Denver, and as we landed fifteen minutes later, another plane hit some bumpy air passages, and people were hurt.  We were in those same bumpy turbulent skies, but as I prayed, and we went through a fog, I had never seen, or experienced, I felt God, we avoided any problems.  Pilot expertise could be.  But it was God to me.

I always pray over the plane, as we get in, and cover it in prayer, laying hands on it, as I exercise my faith, for traveling mercies, for all of us who travel.   So that was kind of strange as well, but again, God is so good, and I trusted him.  Another thing, I see somewhat interesting, is that even as I write this, Hurricane Bonnie, is approaching Florida, and we missed that.  Gods timing, wow, all I can say, is “Praise God,” and I pray, for each person in Florida, to avoid the wrath of that hurricane.

Anyway, I will be writing soon, the Lord has put many things on my heart to write about, so I will be sharing more in the future.  I just want to thank the many people who did check out my blog, while I was on vacation.  Lots of hits on the stats page.  So thank you.  I pray, there is a word here to minister, and to bless you, in seeking God.

Praying wherever you are….that as you Trust God, you will see and sense his love for you as well.  You just have to put his promises, and his word into motion, with prayer, and trust.  And He reveals his love through his word.  He loves you, I hope if you get anything from my message today, you sense and feel his love.  Love him back.  God is so good, there is no one like him.  No one!!  Hallelujah!!!

Blessings, here is a slide show of some of our photos….

father, I just want to thank you and praise you,  For all you do, and for hearing me, and blessing me.  I thank you for our Florida vacation, this summer of 2010.  Lord, you know my hearts desire, and I leave it to you.  For you have given me the best by the cross.  Thank you Lord, my salvation truly is the greatest and best gift you could give me.  In Jesus name, Amen
