AND MAKE THE SWITCH TO AMBIT ENERGY TODAY!! UNDESERVED, UNEARNED, UNEXPLAINABLE TODAY’S SCRIPTURE “Whoever finds me finds life, and obtains favor from the LORD” (Proverbs 8:35) TODAY’S WORD from Joel and Victoria God loves you and He is for you! He is for your good; He is for your success; He is for your future. He desires for you to have

Proverbs 9:6 Leave your simple ways and you will live; walk in the way of insight.”

every blessing and every promise declared in His Word. This is what the Bible calls His favor. At some point in our lives, even if we didn’t recognize it, we have all experienced God’s favor. It is simply His undeserved, unearned, unexplainable goodness in your life. God’s favor causes you to reap where you haven’t sown. His favor protects you, promotes you and opens new doors. His favor takes you places you could never go on your own.

Today, I declare over your life that in the coming days and weeks ahead, God is going to unleash His unprecedented favor on you — favor like you’ve never seen before! The key is to stay connected to Him, stay in fellowship with Him through prayer, worship and reading His Word. Let Him direct your steps and mold and shape your character. As you pour yourself out to Him, He will pour out Himself on you! He’ll pour out His grace, mercy and supernatural, undeserved, unearned, unexplainable favor on every area of your life! A PRAYER FOR TODAY Father God, thank You for Your goodness and favor in my life. I trust that You are working behind the scenes on my behalf. I trust that Your plans are to prosper me and give me a future and a hope. I set my mind and heart on You this day and expect to see Your goodness in Jesus’ name. Amen.

1 Corinthians 1:27 But God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong.

2 Timothy 2:3 Join with me in suffering, like a good soldier of Christ Jesus. Pray with me!


Proverbs 3:4 Then you will win favor and a good name in the sight of God and man.

“And [so that you can know and understand]

what is the immeasurable and unlimited and surpassing greatness of His power in and for us who believe...” (Ephesians 1:19, AMP)

TODAY’S WORD from Joel and Victoria Every one of us can say that, in our lives, God has been good to us. We’ve all seen God’s favor at work. He has protected us, promoted us and opened doors for us. That’s God’s favor. But I believe that in the coming days, God wants to show us unprecedented favor — that’s favor like we haven’t seen before. In today’s verse, Paul said that in the “ages to come” we would see “the immeasurable, unlimited, surpassing greatness of God’s favor.” What’s interesting is that Paul wrote this passage ages ago. I believe that we are now living in the “ages to come” that Paul was talking about. I believe you and I are going to see this unprecedented favor! The word “unprecedented” means “unmatched, unparalleled, for the first time.” In other words, you may have seen God’s favor in the past, but you need to get ready. You haven’t seen anything yet. What God has in your future is going to be bigger, better, greater — unprecedented! He is going to show you His goodness in ways you’ve never seen before. Keep standing, keep praying, keep putting Him first and watch His unprecedented favor come on every area of your life!

A PRAYER FOR TODAY Father God, thank You for this day and age I’m living in. I believe that You created me for such a time as this. By faith, I receive Your unprecedented favor as I serve You with my whole heart in Jesus’ name. Amen.

God Loves you

Someone out there by proclaiming his good news is repents, it stirs up joy in heaven! - - - / Contact Ph.# 325.829.2389


Day in and day out, as I hold on to the promises of God in Christ Jesus my Savior and Lord, and in my best obedience to honor his word, I have yet to say he has not failed me. I could share many things he has done for me and my loved ones, our family’s, friends and beyond, but my greatest testimony is, “I once was lost but now I am found!” Abraham inquired of God for mercy on the inhabitants of Sodom and Gomorrah, not to destroy them if righteous people were found, the Lord agreed he would not destroy them for the sake of the righteous. Family, friends, you and I are still here because of his mercy and goodness, please catch this- “Unless the Lord Almighty had left us descendants, we would have become like Sodom, we would have become like Gomorrah.” God is for us not against us, he sent his only begotten Son, to give us good news. ¡bendiciones!

Our adversary is putting up a fight against us, trying to take out our God given destiny. It reads in the second half of the verse in 1 John 4:4 ...”because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.” So proclaim, and I say thanks to all the mommies, daddy’s, grandma’s, grandpa’s, aunts, uncles, on and on, that instilled God’s word to you and I, but above all thanks be to God for Jesus Christ our Lord, he died and rose from the dead to bring us good news.

It is written in Romans 9:29 It is just as Isaiah said previously: “Unless the Lord Almighty had left us descendants, we would have become like Sodom, we would have become like Gomorrah.” Sodom, Gomorrah, two cities we read about found in The Book of Genesis, two cities that divine judgement from God was passed on them along with two additional neighboring cities that were completely consumed by fire and brimstone. Why were they destroyed? The answer is found in Genesis 18: 20-21 “Because the outcry against Sodom and Gomorrah is great and their sin is very grave, I will go down to see whether they have done altogether according to the outcry that has come to me. And if not, I will know.” I kind a feel like the apostle Paul, God has been good and merciful, I testify without shame, and will proclaim his good news. - - - / Contact Ph.# 325.829.2389


“So I say to you: Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you” (Luke 11:9, NIV)

TODAY’S WORD from Joel and Victoria When you go about your day, are you looking for God’s favor? Do you expect His goodness to overflow? Many people wake up and just believe to make it through the day, but God has so much more in store for you. What He has laid out for your future is more than you can imagine! What He’s got arranged for your family is more than you’ve ever even dreamed of. I believe that if you will take hold of this truth by faith, you will see supernatural doors begin to open. You’ll see promotion like you haven’t seen before! No matter where you are in life, no matter what’s happening around you, start looking for more of God’s favor. Don’t settle for where you are. Don’t settle for just barely getting by. Believe that God is good, and He wants to do more in and through you. Remember, what you seek, you will find. So seek Him first, and He will pour out His supernatural favor upon you!

Romans 8:31 What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?

PRAYER REQUEST JOIN ME IN PRAYING ALWAYS Romans 15:30 I urge you, brothers, by our Lord Jesus Christ and by the love of the Spirit, to join me in my struggle by praying to God for me. (Servando Rodriguez & family) 2 Corinthians 4:15 All this is for your benefit, so that the grace that is reaching more and more people may cause thanksgiving to overflow to the glory of God.

TODAY’S WORD from Joel and Victoria When you see someone who is struggling, a co-worker who is discouraged, a friend who is not up to par, how do you respond? Our words can be what keeps a person going; our compliments can put a spring back into their step. Now more than ever, we need to automatically let the encouragement flow. We need to tell others how much we love them, how we value them, and tell them that they are talented and creative. Always remember, with your words you carry life-giving water. You carry hope, healing, encouragement and new beginnings, and you can pour it out everywhere you go. Today, choose to speak encouragement. Choose to speak victory and faith. Instead of telling people what they’re doing wrong, instead of pointing out all their faults, find what they are doing right. Focus on the good. There are already enough critical, judgmental people in the world. Let’s be people who lift up others and restore them. Let’s be the light of Jesus in the world.
