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
