STIR UP AND REMIND YOURSELF GOD LOVES YOU, BY THE SACRIFICE OF CHRIST

MY MEDITATION OF HIM SHALL BE SWEET, I WILL BE GLAD IN THE LORD.  PSALMS 104:34

A friend, brought this to my attention, earlier, and it made me think, but we really need to remind ourselves, that God loves us.  That His promises, will go forth, that ALL things are possible with God.  I pray, that 2012, would bring forth supernatural, great expectations, within my heart, to see who God is, even more so.  Faith.  May it increase in all of our hearts. As we are always reminded of what Christ did on the cross for us, we can “stir” up those reminders…..Love ya, all…..http://elenasjustmythoughts.wordpress.com


A VISION OF GODS GLORY AND LOVE TO YOU…..

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..


ARE YOU WISE TO HEAR YOUR CALLING….

A WISE MAN WILL HEAR, AND WILL INCREASE LEARNING AND A MAN OF UNDERSTANDING SHALL ATAIN UNTO WISE COUNSELS:  PROVERBS 1:5

This is the time, God is calling out to EVERYONE. And He whispers, He makes a way, He patiently waits. But there will come a time, when the calling will stop, and the Book of Life will open. Then will one see, if they obeyed the calling. Or did they miss their chance…..Dont miss your chance. Be wise, hear, and obey…..


THE PRIORITY OF GOD

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

Father,

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.  

HEBREWS 13:20:21


AN ANOINTING…..

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  


THE HIDDEN PATH~JOB 28:7


NO BIRD Of PREY KNOWS THAT HIDDEN PATH, NO FALCONS EYE HAS SEEN IT.  JOB 28:7

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.


BEING HUMBLE ISAIAH 57:15

I REFRESH THE HUMBLE AND GIVE NEW COURAGE TO THOSE WITH REPENTANT HEARTS….ISAIAH 57:15.

So many times, we can miss that key, because we think we are right. But if we are humble, God will make us right. The courage, to admit your wrong, is the beginning….

A Prayer of Hope`

Lord, forgive me, when I do not see.  When I am only insistent on my own way, or if I am so rude, that all that comes out is pride.  Lord, I pray you never see that, so I begin, right here, by asking for forgiveness, of this in the past.  And pray, the start I make would be right in your sight.  Humble.  In Jesus name. Amen


SCRIPTURE FOOD FOR THOUGHT~DO YOU WANT LOVE FOR THE HOLIDAYS?

God is love, and Christ, is the son of God. The spirit of Christ is love….The spirit of Christmas is love….Do you want more of Christ in your Holidays? Put love in it….Just my thoughts……FOOD FOR THOUGHT….

LET ALL BITTERNESS, AND WRATH, AND ANGER, AND CLAMOUR AND EVIL SPEAKING BE PUT AWAY FROM YOU WITH ALL MALICE.  AND BE YE KIND ONE TO ANOTHER, TENDERHEARTED, FORGIVING ONE ANOTHER, EVEN AS GOD FOR CHRIST SAKE HATH FORGIVEN YOU.  EPHESIANS 4:32

Father, a prayer of hope, that all I would do would be seen by you as love.  Take the spirit, of anger, hate, jealousy, condemnation, judgment away from me, so I may walk in love with others, and receive YOUR love.  Lord, my goal is to please you, and I know sometimes, I just long for that more then anything….I am grateful for your forgiveness, and I want to forgive others as well.  In Jesus name, Amen


SCRIPTURE FOOD~THIRSTY FOR GOD? ISAIAH 44:3

Thirsty today, for more of God?  I meditate on this word, myself.  I take it, chew it, savor it, and meditate on it, absorb it….for it is life.  In a world that does not seek you, there are many dry places Lord.  Fill my cup…I ask, thee please.

FOR I WILL POUR WATER UPON HIM THAT IS THIRSTY, AND FLOODS UPON THE DRY GROUND:  I WILL POUR MY SPIRIT UPON THY SEED, AND MY BLESSING UPON THINE OFFSPRING.  ISAIAH 44:3 

A PRAYER OF HOPE.

Thank you almighty God.  Yes, I am thirsty for more of you, and nothing else, quench this thirst, for life abundantly in Jesus name.  Amen


SCRIPTURE FOOD FOR THOUGHT~PRAYER THANKFUL FOR SALVATION

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


SCRIPTURE FOOD~A PRAYER FOR FAVOR

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


SCRIPTURE FOOD~THE VOICE OF THE LORD UPON THE WATER

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

I WILL TELL OF THE KINDNESSES OF THE LORD, THE DEEDS FOR WHICH IS HE IS TO BE PRAISED, ACCORDING TO ALL THE LORD HAS DONE FOR US, YES, THE MANY GOOD THINGS HE HAS DONE…..

ISAIAH 63:7

This popped out to me, how true, God is kind, and good to me. Thank you Lord. I love you. Elena

Father, Thank you for the beauty, the good things you bring my way, the prosperity, and all the blessings that come from you.  Every good and perfect gift, truly does come from your throne.  And you are so kind to me, teaching me, to seek you, not the things you provide.  A very valuable lesson.  Much love, Father, Thank you.  In Jesus name.  Amen

Father, you have many names, and in your Holy name, I know you sent your son, our Lord Jesus, to save us.  And there is no other name, that can come to your name but his name.  So I speak the name of Jesus, to glorify you my Lord, Jehovah.  In Jesus name.  Thank you for sending your son.  So that all who believe will be saved.  Amen


SCRIPTURE FOOD~FAITH TURNS INTO FAITHFULNESS

A word from God I received today…..

FAITH IS WHEN YOU BELIEVE IN GOD….
FAITHFULNESS IS WHEN GOD CAN BELIEVE IN YOU…..

We are all growing, and living, because God gives us life.  Are you trying to show God, you are Faithful?  Do you try and prove to him, that you can be trusted?  That you can be faithful?  If we take our lives, and truly let God be the foundation of who we are, we can give our lives to him, and be assured, that what we do, NATURALLY, will be our gift back to God.  Because of who He is in the SUPERnatural, He can pour more into us, we can have supernatural affects.  I want God to see me as faithful, so He can believe in me.  To see those affects.  To God be the glory…..

WE THEN AS WORKERS TOGETHER, WITH HIM, BESEECH YOU ALSO THAT YOU RECEIVE NOT THE GRACE OF GOD IN VAIN.  II CORINTHIANS 6:1

A Prayer of Hope…

Father, thank you for teaching me about your Faithfulness, it is so evident, because of what Christ did for each one of us.  Your love was so great, truly you sent your son, so that if we believe, we would have life, eternally.  Lord, help us all daily to grow in our faith.  To be faithful as well, in just believing, not doubting, not reasoning your word.  But being obedient, to do that which you have called us, will produce results.  Lord, your word will not go forth in vain, it will prosper in that thing, we send it to.  Lord, I pray my faith will grow.  And more then anything, I pray, you see faithfulness in me, so you can trust me, in the small things, and the big things.  And all for your glory.  In Jesus name.  Amen


SCRIPTURE FOOD~KEEP THE COMMANDMENTS OF GOD

THEREFORE THOU SHALT KEEP THE COMMANDMENTS OF THE LORD THY GOD, TO WALK IN HIS WAYS, AND TO FEAR HIM.  FOR THE LORD THY GOD BRINGS YOU INTO A GOOD LAND, A LAND OF BROOKS OF WATER, OF FOUNTAINS AND DEPTHS THAT SPRING OUT OF VALLEYS AND HILLS.  A LAND OF WHEAT AND BARLEY AND VINES, AND FIG TREES AND POMEGRANATES, A LAND OF OIL OLIVE, AND HONEY.  A LAND WHEREIN THOU SHALT EAT BREAD WITHOUT SCARECENESS THOU SHALT NOT LACK ANYTHING IN IT, A LAND WHOSE STONES ARE IRON  AND OUT OF WHOSE HILLS THOU MAY DIG BRASS.  WHEN THOU HAST EAT AND FULL THEN THOU SHALT BLESS THE LORD THY GOD FOR THE GOOD LAND WHICH HE HAS GIVEN YOU.  DEUTERONOMY 8:6-11

My hearts desire, is to obey you, and to keep your commandments, in the fear of you oh Lord God.  For who you are.  For there is none like you.  As I remind myself to do this, I know it will go well with me.  Help me, to help others as well, but to show them, your commandments are not burdensome.  They do not hinder us from life.  They give us life.  They protect us, they make a way, where there was no way.  They make a way, to a new land, even here, Lord, I see the promise. Especially, when we pray.  We know, we can ask you if it is your will, because we have tried to do that which is right in your sight.  Lord, truly your word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.  In Jesus name.  Amen


SCRIPTURE FOOD~TEMPTATION DELIVERANCE PRAYER I CORINTHIANS 10:13

THERE HATH NO TEMPTATION TAKEN YOU BUT SUCH AS IS COMMON TO MAN:  BUT GOD IS FAITHFUL, WHO WILL NOT SUFFER YOU TO BE TEMPTED ABOVE THAT YE ARE ABLE; BUT WILL WITH THE TEMPTATION ALSO MAKE A WAY TO ESCAPE, THAT YOU MAY BE ABLE TO BEAR IT.  I CORINTHIANS 10:13.

Father, I understand this, and in this obedience, to the cross, and the sacrifice, of Christ is the key, to being faithful.  To being able to escape the temptation.  There is someone who is reading this and it is confirmation in the spirit.  Your timing, has caused me to write this, even now at this moment, and I pray, that this person, will be able to fight the temptation.  But only by knowing the battle is yours.  Take the torment of this temptation away.  Make a way, to escape.  Change the circumstances, bring peace, as this person, in obedience, even here sees, your word will make a way for deliverance.  You are just asking for a prayer, and for thanks.  In this obedience.  How good you are, my Lord! Thank you Lord, for delivering me also, in past situations, from temptation.  You truly are amazing, and wonderful in your love, to help us in matters like this.  For as we submit to you, resist the devil, he will flee, along with that temptation.  Hallelujah! In Jesus name.  Amen


SCRIPTURE FOOD~DO YOU WANT TO BE WISE AT THE END? PROVERBS 19:20

HEAR COUNSEL, AND RECEIVE INSTRUCTION, THAT THOU MAYEST BE WISE IN THY LATTER END. PROVERBS 19:20

Father, I thank you.  I so, pray to hear YOUR voice, to give me instruction, and guidance.  I pray, that my own thoughts would meditate on your truth, and your word.  And reflect your wisdom.  Lord, send me counsel by your people as well.  Truth, that is spoken in love.  Not judgment, or by a critical spirit.  I thrive on your love, and that of a word spoken, softly, and without the tone of being harsh.  Lord, you know what it takes for me to hear correctly.  I open myself to hear your love spoken.  Wherever it may be.  For I know faith, comes by hearing, the word of God.  I will know it is you, if it is spoken in love.  For you are love.  Then I can have discernment for the instruction I need.  To make that conclusion. The fear of the Lord, is the beginning of knowledge to get that wisdom. Proverbs 1:7.….To know, your truth.  How I long to be wise, because of your gift of discernment.  To me.  That is the first key…..And again, I thank you.  In Jesus name, Amen


SCRIPTURE FOOD~MAKING HIS WAY, YOUR WAY, WILL BRING OTHERS TO CHRIST JOB 8:19

BEHOLD THIS IS THE JOY OF HIS WAY, AND OUT OF THE EARTH SHALL OTHERS GROW. JOB 8:19

Lord, my Father, as I thank you for my Salvation, truly the joy of you Lord is my strength.  Growing, changing, being transformed more and more into your image, by seeking you, by loving you, keeping your commandments, this has shown me your ways, according to your word.  Lord, if it brings you joy, for me to be used by you, then show me continually, where to go, what to do, so others can grow, from my testimony, by the results of the difference, you have made in my life.  I know it, as clear, as I can see night and day, but I pray, that I can express it, in due season even more so, so others can grow.  So they can say as well, Look what the Lord has done for me.  Use me in this.  Bless me, so I can be a blessing.  Thank you Father, for all you have done.  In Jesus name, Amen


SCRIPTURE FOOD~GIVING AN ACCOUNT OF THE WORDS YOU SPEAK MATTHEW 12:36

Father, how I long to be in that special place with you, and when I do think of that, I am also reminded of the words I have spoken.  Are they life?  Not death, like you tell us in Proverbs 18:21.  I don’t want to eat results that are negative, or they go against your word.  Lord, help me to be mindful, of the words I speak, that they are not counterproductive to myself, or to others.  To be positive, and encouraged because of your promises.  Help me to speak your words.  Help me to know that someday I will stand before you in judgment.  What will you tell me about the words I speak?….I know this is enough to make me mindful, of those words I speak, so they will not be idle.  I pray this to bring glory to you, in the words I speak.  Thank you Lord, in Jesus name.  Amen.
