The King James scripture says in Proverbs 3:5 TRUST IN THE LORD WITH ALL THINE HEART; AND LEAN NOT UNTO THINE OWN UNDERSTANDING.
Friends, its easy, to doubt, and just throw in the towel. That is easy. It is a determined, disciplined action, to “trust” God. So you have to make the effort. When those negative thoughts come, that is like the scripture says… “Inclining unto your own understanding” And that is exactly what the devil wants you to do. Be careful with that. We want the mind of Christ, but we have to “submit” to God. Trusting God with all our heart. This is how we resist the enemy, and he will flee. But your mind, has to “trust” God, to “submit to Him.
James 4:7 tells us this. SUBMIT YOURSELVES THEREFORE TO GOD. RESIST THE DEVIL, AND HE WILL FLEE FROM YOU.
Catch yourself, when you are thinking negative, doubting even God. Repent, and tell God you trust Him. This is submitting to God. Blessings and love for you today. No tickling of the ears, just straight truth, and praying we all get it right! Please share this message with your friends.
SCRIPTURE FOOD FOR THOUGHT ~ REASONING WITH GOD AS I REMIND HIM, AND MYSELF OF HIS PROMISES BY CHRISTIAN AUTHOR ELENA RAMIREZ
Today, I feel led to remind God of His promises, and myself, of His promises, His holy word, from the King James Bible. Scripture food for thought. Because to be honest, yes, I am confident in who He is.
I am not always confident in who I am though, and without His word, I would not be confident. But today, I am going to put down a few scriptures here and there, I may come back and update it, but today, I am remind you Father, what your word says.
So, I can console myself. So I can have hope. So, I can see your glory, revealed. Yes, I am taking your word literally. This is the scripture I am eating today, it is my Scripture Food For Thought: Maybe it will bring things into perspective for your children as well.
I am reasoning with you Father. For you say:
COME NOW LET US REASON, TOGETHER, SAITH THE LORD, THOUGH YOUR SINS BE AS SCARLET, THEY SHALL BE AS WHITE AS SNOW, THOUGH THEY BE RED LIKE CRIMSON, THEY SHALL BE AS WOOL. IF YE BE WILLING AND OBEDIENT, YE SHALL EAT THE GOOD OF THE LAND. BUT IF YE REFUSE AND REBEL, YE SHALL BE DEVOURED WITH THE SWORD, FOR THE MOUTH OF THE LORD HATH SPOKEN IT. Isaiah 1:18-20.
Lord, you tell me you will reason with me, well, I am taking your word to heart here. Yes, I have sinned, in the past, but I do not choose to sin now. I believe, I am trying with all that I can, to be blameless before you. To walk away from sin. To be submissive, in your sight. Humble. I walk in love. I walk in every way, I can, to obey you, and to please you. So, yes, I am going to remind you of your word, so I can get results. You are the great I AM. You say Lord, that your word, will not return void.
SO SHALL MY WORD BE THAT GOETH FORTH OUT OF MY MOUTH: IT SHALL NOT RETURN UNTO ME VOID, BUT IT SHALL ACCOMPLISH THAT WHICH I PLEASE, AND IT SHALL PROSPER IN THE THING WHERETO I SENT IT. Isaiah 55:11.
Lord, you know my prayer,yes, it is a request for healing, and restoration. Concerning everything…. no I cannot tell the whole world, what my need is, what my prayer is. But, Lord, I do send your word, for healing, for restoration, for renewal. Lord, this is your word, I am counting on! Your Holy Word, yes, I am reasoning with you, to accomplish this.
Because of what my Lord Jesus did, on the cross. Because He suffered, at the hands of those who crucified Him. I do not take His sacrifice for granted. I know, that I know, His love, and your love was so great, that you sent Him, to take away our sins. It heals us, physically, and spiritually….
BUT HE WAS WOUNDED FOR OUR TRANSGRESSIONS, HE WAS BRUISED FOR OUR INIQUITIES; THE CHASTISEMENT OF OUR PEACE WAS UPON HIM, AND WITH HIS STRIPES WE ARE HEALED. Isaiah 53:5.
Yes, any sin, makes us sick. Anything, separates us from you. It stops the blessings. It stops the progress, it stops us, just as the devil intended. But, I give no place to your enemy. I submit to you, I resist the devil, and your word says, He must flee!
SUBMIT YOURSELVES THEREFORE TO GOD. RESIST THE DEVIL, AND he WILL FLEE FROM YOU. DRAW NEAR TO GOD, AND HE WILL DRAW NEAR TO YOU. CLEANSE YOUR HANDS, YE SINNERS, AND PURIFY YOUR HEARTS, YE DOUBLE MINDED. BE AFFLICTED AND MOURN, AND WEEP: LET YOUR LAUGHTER BE TURNED TO MOURNING, AND YOUR JOY TO HEAVINESS. HUMBLE YOURSELVES IN THE SIGHT OF THE LORD, AND HE SHALL LIFT YOU UP. SPEAK NOT EVIL OF ANOTHER BRETHREN. HE THAT SPEAKETH EVIL OF HIS BROTHER AND JUDGETH HIS BROTHER SPEAKETH EVIL OF THE LAW, AND JUDGETH THE LAW, BUT IF THOU JUDGE THE LAW, THOU ART NOT A DOES OF THE LAW, BUT A JUDGE. James 4:7-11.
Lord, I take all of these scriptures to heart. Yes, I am sad today, and last night. And partially, because I was judged, by a couple of friends supposedly in Christ. It hurt. But with all that I am feeling, today, I remind myself of your promises. I write them here, to perhaps comfort myself, and yes others.
To remind you, in faith, that I know, all things are possible with you, because of who you are. I give you glory. Honor and praise. You know every detail. And it is hard, to express this publicly, yet, I know I have to write this, to reinforce who you are, and who I am in Christ. Just a few scriptures, but I claim your Holy word, because nothing is too hard for you. I close this prayer in Jesus name. With your Holy word. I thank you, and believe, in faith, you will answer me, my prayer, my needs. I give you praise glory and honor. I thank you, now in advance, with great thanks, believing, because of who you are…..
BEHOLD I AM THE LORD, THE GOD OF ALL FLESH, IS THERE ANYTHING TOO HARD FOR ME. Jeremiah 32:27.
A BLESSING WHEN YOU LEARN FAITH AND EVEN THE HARD WAY….EXPECT HIS BLESSINGS By Christian author Elena Ramirez
When you finally make the commitment, to serve God, to depart from the world, from the devil, and quit flip-flopping here and there in your faith, you will get victories.
I understand I have been there. Where I wanted to do things my way. What a waste of time that was. I had to look at Jesus. I had to get my eyes off of me. My problems, hangups etc. So I could get faith. He taught me, He is kind, but He is not a pushover. We either do it His way, or we pay the consequences. More then ever, I submit to God.
More then ever, I pray to please God, to fight my battles, to give me victories. I AM is in charge here. He is the great I AM! And because of that, I am as His little child of God, expecting Him to fight my battles, and I am expecting Him to show Himself mighty on my behalf. I have learned faith. Yes, even the hard way, and enough is enough! No more defeats in the name of Jesus!
I am determined to serve God, and to defeat the enemy. Gods enemy. By the blood of Jesus. This is why I wrote my book. HOW TO HAVE FAITH. MY SECRET PRINCIPLES OF FAITH, WITH A TRUE AND LIVING GOD, JESUS CHRIST, AND THE HOLY SPIRIT.
I wrote this book….Because I learned faith, the hard way. And I will never go back to the ways of the world, and without my Jesus. Never. I want my Salvation secure. Because life on this earth, without Him, is not life.
What happens when you learn faith the hard way? You never, ever go back to living without God. Because you know the difference. You know, that God loves you. But He is a gentleman. He gives us a choice. But if we choose wrong, we choose death. You think life is hell on earth? Try living in hell for eternity. Where there is no relief.
Yes, I know the difference. And I want to tell people, today is the day of your Salvation. Today, is the day to make it right with Christ. I can help you. I can pray for you. But I have a tool in my book, that has something for everybody. Whether it is a small “secret” or just common sense, that needs to be implemented. It can make the difference, In my book, I also have a Prayer of Salvation.
This book, will help someone in their faith, but is also a wonderful tool, to lead someone to Christ. Whether or not you buy my book, is between you and God. I am just His servant. This is not to hustle anyone, or to be a part of the prosperity club. That is not me, I hate that, ministries has twisted the gospel for those reasons. Jesus turned the tables on that. I don’t want to be a part of that. With that kind of greedy spirit. That the enemy inhabits. I don’t want that, and in fact I am in fear of God of that. Because so many have turned down the wrong road, because of prosperity. And in His name, they have turned it into greed.
I want Jesus lifted up! His true gospel! And this is what I tried to bring to my book. In every aspect. For it is a three fold cord, with the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, that cannot be broken!
What I want is for God to get the glory, honor and praise. I want to see people complete and whole, and victorious. Healed, restored, and with hope.
I know that I know, God is real, and yes, even His enemy is real. But there are victories in Jesus name. There are miracles. There are blessings, we just have to do our part. We have to learn Gods principles. I believe I learned them. I just pray, the body of Christ opens their eyes. For I will be honest. The body of Christ is crippled. In so many ways. I know why, and I reveal it in my book.
There are lost souls out there, in our world. There are people hungry, and thirsty spiritually, and physically. It is time, we all do something, to help one another. And to preach the true gospel of Jesus Christ.
I am adamant today, as I write. I am tired of the enemy stealing my blessings, and I am going to God full force, with all I have, and I am submitting to God, to defeat that enemy. I decree in the name of Jesus, today, is a day for new beginnings, and blessings, and favor, and miracles, to bring Him glory, and to help those who need faith. Yes, I know HOW TO HAVE FAITH. And I know it in His love. The greatest love of all, because Jesus Christ, went to the cross for you and me. Love dispels, and breaks up, and pushes fear away. Making a way for faith…..
Thank you for letting me share my heart today. If you want more information on the book, go to my blogs, and put in the key words HOW TO HAVE FAITH. Or just message, or e-mail me.

So we know, we have an adversary. We know, there are times, we have to stand in battle. We know, though, the battle is the Lords….And what has He given us to defend ourselves? The Holy King James Bible.
When you see the other versions, and all their discrepancies, and you know, this truth, and you switch your Bible, to the King James Bible, then you have a true sword, to protect you. To bring light into darkness. To claim, when you need a healing. Till then, you are using a rubber sword.
THOU HAST ALSO TURNED THE EDGE OF HIS SWORD, AND HAST NOT MADE HIM TO STAND IN THE BATTLE. Psalms 89:43.
Read my posts, and find this out on your own. Don’t just believe me, believe Gods word! See Revelations 22:18-19 from the King James, and more…..
This is not up for debate. I know the difference. And no one, could ever change my mind. Not after I have seen they denote the authority of my Lord Jesus. Never! I trust the King James Bible.
THIS IS MY RESPONSE TO ANY NEGATIVITY ABOUT CHRISTMAS….MAYBE IT CAN BE YOURS TOO.
“HAVE A HAPPY JOHN 3:16″
BLESSINGS AND LOVE, ELENA
AND HE SAID UNTO THEM, YE ARE THEY WHICH JUSTIFY YOURSELVES, BEFORE MEN, BUT GOD KNOWETH YOUR HEARTS; FOR THAT WHICH IS HIGHLY ESTEEMED AMONG MEN IS ABOMINATION IN THE SIGHT OF GOD. LUKE 16:15
The Lord spoke this so simply to me, this morning, in this perspective, that people, do not have a clue, as to how to live a life, so that it could make sense. Because peoples priorities, are all messed up. Hollywood, the media, and just the world in general, have their priorities, on themselves. Justifying one~self, to men, but not God. On how to make money, how to get fame, how to get power, prestige etc.
And it really is not rocket science. And its not hard. This is the way, it was intended from the beginning. All God really wants is your attention. He wants you to seek Him. He wants you to repent. He wants you to pray, and try to be obedient. To try, and get to know Him. By reading His word, by prayer. By finally seeing, and accepting Jesus Christ as Lord and savior. By seeing what He did on the cross for you, and for me, and for each one of us. Christ promised life, and life abundantly……(read John 10:10)
Life dear one would make more sense, if people, followed just these simple principles, so they can find their way through life. Its not hard. But when someones priorities, are not on God, well the devil does come in, and he is the accuser, he is known as a liar. He is trying to deceive you. His job is to kill, steal, and destroy. (again read John 10:10)
Christ, is the only way. He is the truth, and life. John 14:6. Dear one, life can make sense, if you seek God. Just try it. What do you have to lose? Ask God to help you. For your life will have meaning. It will make sense. Because God will be in your life. Scripture food for thought…..Seeking God is the clue for making life make sense. An extra clue, I share, is be….”CONSISTENT” in this. Don’t give up….
My Prayer of Hope….
Timing, I love your timing, and how you call each one of us to your throne. Right now, you have called the reader to your throne. To make a decision, to seek you, to change things for this persons life. Life does not make sense without you father. I know. I remember the days, when I rejected you, foolishly, thinking, I knew what was right. Thinking, I could do it all on my own. Those were the darkest, and loneliest times of my life. It has not been hard, in the sense, where I knew there was no other way, besides knowing you. For the past, would not be something, I would choose to go back too. Through good times, and bad times, I can always count on you. You are my anchor, you are my hope, you are life. And life abundantly because of Christ. I know the difference. I hope the reader, will make the decision to seek you. So, life, this persons life, can begin to make sense. For you have a plan, and it is greater, then anything, anyone, could conceive on their own. If we just seek you, instead of trying to “justify ourselves.” In Jesus name. Amen

WHEREFORE GOD ALSO HATH HIGHLY EXALTED HIM, AND GIVEN HIM A NAME WHICH IS ABOVE EVERY NAME: THAT AT THE NAME OF JESUS EVERY KNEE SHOULD BOW, OF THINGS IN HEAVEN AND THINGS IN EARTH, AND THINGS UNDER THE EARTH. AND THAT EVERY TONGUE SHOULD CONFESS THAT JESUS CHRIST IS LORD, TO THE GLORY OF GOD THE FATHER. PHILLIPIANS 2:9-11
There is power in a name. Recognition. God made the name of Jesus, powerful. Above all names. As we see in this scripture above.
Do you think it is coincidence, that TEBOWS name has the word BOW in it? GOD is using that name, to teach people to WORSHIP GOD. Its not coincidence. God has a plan.
God is using one persons life. One person, and I know this, just after reading Tebows testimony, who could have been aborted. Tebow, honors God. He acknowledges God. When he “bows” to him. He worships God. The world sees this. He is teaching people to worship God, when they see him, do the, “Tebow Bow.”
God tells us to worship him, in spirit and in truth. Every knee will bow, every tongue will confess Jesus is Lord. I choose to bow now. In the sight of God. Tebow does too. Do you? Dear one, God is almighty, and powerful, able. HE is able to change our lives. Able to make a difference, but we have our part. Worship Him for just who He is.
Never, underestimate the power of God, or how He uses us. Never, life is valuable. Worship God, even now where you are, for who you are. You are precious, and loved by God.
My Prayer of Hope…
Father, I exalt you, I praise you, I bless your holy name. I worship you in spirit and truth. Lord, thank you for those you choose to serve you. Thank you for revealing the purpose, just in dear Tebow. Bless him Lord. Lord, you have a purpose for each and every one of us, if we just seek you, if we just call on you. Lord, bless the reader here. Bless this person, reading this. Reveal even more, your purpose, for he or she. Bless them with new inspiration, and insight, that you are able. That you are God. Lord, yes, every knee will bow, every tongue will confess Jesus, IS Lord, I choose, to do it now. As well as Tebow. We know, and many know the greatness of you. I will not be ashamed of the gospel. I will not be ashamed of who I am in Christ. I thank you for the boldness, you give each one of us, as we worship you, in spirit, and truth. In Jesus name, the name above all names. AmenOther pages to check out from Elena for Christian Inspiration OTHER BLOGS FROM ELENA FOR CHRISTIAN INSPIRATION
A GLORIOUS HIGH THRONE FROM THE BEGINNING IS THE PLACE OF OUR SANCTUARY…Jeremiah 17:12
Just envision for a moment, the throne of our Lord. As He sits, upon his throne, in excellence, in majesty, beauty, and the glory of who He is, overwhelms the throne room. Now, just sense His love, radiating to you, because you seek him. Wow..
AND MANY OF THEM THAT SLEEP IN THE DUST OF THE EARTH SHALL AWAKE, SOME TO EVERLASTING LIFE, AND SOME TO SHAME AND EVERLASTING CONTEMPT. DANIEL 12:2
In my morning reading this scripture came to me, and it made me realize, that some of us are asleep, even, in our lives. WAKE UP! Before death, in that we are complacent, we are not stirred, in our spirits, to know, and to do something about others souls as well. Or our own. We take things for granted. Some wealthy, do not take these matters to heart, some poor as well. For we are distracted, with trying to make a living, or just get by, or with our families. There is nothing wrong with that. But, what if we are neglecting our Salvation? What if…we are not working it out, with fear and trembling, in the sight of God? And…we are not sharing our testimonies. Remember Revelations 12:11. We overcome the enemy, by the blood of the lamb, and the words of our testimonies. I think of the Christians, who may have died before us, and they may believed, but they did not share the truth with others. What does God say, when they stand before him? Food for thought, scripture for thought….
Father, help me, to shine my light, to bring the truth to others. Not taking my salvation for granted. Stir up my soul, to shine and express truth. Lord, some day you will return. I pray, you say, well done good, and faithful servant. Lord help us to wake up. Or we could lose our salvation, and that of others. Stir us up. In Jesus name. Amen

God is my priority, with every waking thought, with every sense of who I am in Christ, it is because of God. To reason, or to selfishly, make it about me, would be pride. And, I never, ever want to take on the characteristics of the devil. So I must make my agenda, Gods agenda, to find my way…..
BY ELENA RAMIREZ
I seek you, and your Kingdom, and your righteousness. I focus on you. On your agenda. On the gospel. On love, kindness, mercy, and yes gratitude.
Help me to make your agenda, my agenda, help me to see where the need is. Help me to fulfill it, because of you. Not me, but you. Lord, help me to have seeing eyes, and ear, and a mouth, that is from your heart. Your priority. In Jesus name. Amen
NOW THE GOD OF PEACE, THAT BROUGHT AGAIN FROM THE DEAD OUR LORD JESUS, THAT GREAT SHEPHERD OF THE SHEEP THROUGH THE BLOOD OF THE EVERLASTING COVENANT, MAKE YOU PERFECT IN EVERY GOOD WORK TO DO HIS WILL, WORKING IN YOU THAT WHICH IS WELL PLEASING IN HIS SIGHT THROUGH JESUS CHRIST TO WHOM BE GLORY, FOR EVER AND EVER AMEN.
Father, I pray, for your anointing, to come forth. Upon me, with great favor, and with mercy and truth, about me. So, I may serve you. So I may serve others. So your supernatural, power, can come forth. And so that you can receive glory and honor. So you can be seen in everything, I do. I thank you Lord, Jesus, and I pray to do great things for you. In Jesus name. Amen
I plead by the blood of Jesus, I am on that path that will take me to the Holy of Holies. Praising and worshipping God all the way! I will see the victories, in the name of Jesus. His love prevails. In my life.
My Prayer of Honor and Hope….
Thank you Father. Thank you….with all glory, and honor and praise to you….Thank you!! I am very grateful for the revelation you have given me.
PUT ME IN REMEMBRANCE; LET US PLEAD TOGETHER, DECLARE THOU, THAT THOU MAYEST BE JUSTIFIED. Isaiah 43:26
Father, may all glory and honor, be yours, in everything, I do, say, and think. With you, and with others. As an expression of love, and gratitude. For who you are Lord, there is none else. In Jesus name. Amen
FOR YOU WERE AS SHEEP GOING ASTRAY, BUT YOU ARE NOW RETURNED UNTO THE SHPEHERD, AND BISHOP OF YOUR SOULS….I PETER 2:25.
Sometimes, when I think of Jesus, the Shepherd, I think, of how he reached to me, as a lamb. When he gently tried to call me, I would not listen, But then to save me, He pulled me harshly, from the edge of the cliff. It hurt, it bruised me, but the consequences would have been death. He took me, anointed my head with oil, comforted me, and spoke his words of love to me. I never will forget his love.
Thank you Lord, for your love, and mercy….for saving me, for I was lost, but now found. May this bring life, to the lost, to turn to you my Lord. In Jesus name. Amen
Since, this is Thanksgiving month, I want to share tidbits of why I am thankful. Today, I am so thankful for my Salvation. That I know Christ. Because I know the difference, before and after….BUT WE ALL WITH OPEN FACE BEHOLDING AS IN A GLASS THE GLORY OF THE LORD, ARE CHANGED INTO THE SAME IMAGE FROM GLORY TO GLORY EVEN AS BY THE SPIRIT OF THE LORD. II CORINTHIANS 3:18
Thank you Father, for my Salvation, for all my gifts, but this gift makes me realize, the great sacrifice that came with it. For our Lord, to give his life for me, is so beyond my natural thinking, but by the Holy spirit, I am ever so grateful. Thank you for changing me. I do see the difference, from before and after. I do see the benefits, of seeking you, and you only, my dear Lord. Thank you, that I have a place in heaven, when I leave this world. Thank you Lord. For all, but mostly my Salvation. It is truly the best gift you could ever give…..In Jesus name. Amen
FOR THOSE WHO NEED FAVOR TODAY….
LET NOT MERCY AND TRUTH FORSAKE THEE; BIND THEM ABOUT THY NECK. WRITE THEM UPON THE TABLE OF YOUR HEART. SO SHALT THOU FIND FAVOR AND GOOD UNDERSTANDING IN THE SIGHT OF GOD AND MAN….PROVERBS 3:5.
Lord, this is my prayer, for my friends, and myself. As I thank you and praise you. I can only pray, humbly, that I would find mercy, and also give it. In the little things, and the big things. Yet, to speak and live in truth. Not deceptive to myself, you, or anyone else. True in thought, mind, and spirit, for thy glory. My King. Yes, I need favor, I need doors to open. I need to understand, and see your truth though, for any of this to be evident. In Jesus name. Amen
Father, I love to hear your voice. And when I look at any body of water, I cannot help and marvel, at your power. When I am at the beach, I cannot help and see, how you stop the water from continuing on, it just stops at the shore. Such power, as you pour blessings of love upon us. No wonder Jesus told us, that if we believed, we would have living waters in us. Lord, thank you, may I hear your voice. May someone else, who comes to this blog, hear your voice as well. Such sweet fellowship we have as we ponder on the greatness of you. In Jesus name. Amen
