TODAY’S SCRIPTURE “...Though it tarries, wait for it; because it will surely come...” (Habakkuk 2:3, NKJV) TODAY’S WORD from Joel and Victoria If you will keep God first in everything you do, He promises that He is going to crown your efforts with success. Because you diligently seek Him, a reward is coming. Favor is coming. Good breaks are coming. Promotion is coming. A shift is coming. Healing is coming. Restoration is coming. It may seem like it’s taking a long time; you may feel like you’ve been holding on forever, but keep holding on. The promise will be fulfilled through faith and patience. Waiting doesn’t mean do nothing; it means get prepared. Now is the time to get ready. God doesn’t want you to live an average, ordinary life. Because you depend on Him, He is going to increase you. You are going to bear much fruit. He is going to make you more productive. You’re going to get more done in less time. He is going

to make your life easier and take you where you could not go on your own. It’s going to be greater than you ever even dreamed of. Get ready because it’s coming — every promise you’ve stood in faith for, every dream He’s placed in your heart that you’ve contended for is coming to fruition in Jesus’ name!

A PRAYER FOR TODAY Father, thank You for Your faithfulness and goodness in my life. I know that through faith and patience I will receive Your promises. Help me to be ready; show me what to do so that I am in position to receive everything You have prepared for me in Jesus’ name. Amen.

2 Peter 3:9 The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. Instead he is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.

Psalm 63:6 On my bed I remember you; I think of you through the watches of the night. Psalm 77:2 When I was in distress, I sought the Lord; at night I stretched out untiring hands, and I would not be comforted. Psalm 78:34 Whenever God slew them, they would seek him; they eagerly turned to him again. Psalm 105:7 He is the LORD our God; his judgments are in all the earth.

6 L Pics 1 .SM =7 Seek First TODAY’S SCRIPTURE “All night long I search for you; in the morning I earnestly seek for God...” (Isaiah 26:9, NLT)

TODAY’S WORD from Joel and Victoria Jesus said in Matthew 6, “Seek first the kingdom of God.” That word “seek” is a strong word. One definition is “to require as a vital necessity.” You have to see spending time with God as being vital to living a victorious life because some mornings we think, “I don’t want to get up early. I don’t feel like reading my Bible. I don’t feel like going to church today.” But once you get in a habit and see the benefits of how you feel refreshed and restored, you make better decisions, you’re more creative, you have God’s favor, and then you’ll think, “I can’t afford not to do it. When I don’t spend time with God, I don’t feel right. Something is missing.” “When I don’t go to church I don’t have the wisdom, the clarity, the direction. I don’t have the boost that I need for the week.”

Isaiah 43:18 “Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past.

Scripture says, “Seek first.” That indicates that we should take time for God at the start of the day. Don’t give Him your leftover time. Make Him a part of your normal routine. Make Him your first priority. Seek Him first, seek Him earnestly, and watch what He will do on your behalf. A PRAYER FOR TODAY Father, today I choose to put You first. I acknowledge that without You, I can do nothing. I invite You to have Your way in my life as I seek You first in all that I do in Jesus’ name. Amen.

Coming next a week a video clip on You Tube, on the God breathed word I delivered to our local church this past Sunday. Jesus said, Matthew 5:13 “You are the salt of the earth.”.. He also said in last part of Revelation 3:15-16 ..”I wish you were either one or the other! So, because you are lukewarm-neither hot nor cold-I am about to spit you out of my mouth.”

GOOD NEWS! As I mentioned in last weeks article, I will expound on the words Jesus Christ stated has

he began to teach through a sermon on the Mount. Jesus used a metaphor- meaning he used a figure of speech in which a term is applied to something to which it is not literally in order to suggest a resemblance, as in “A mighty fortress is our God.” Before I talk about the specific metaphor I am referring to let me point this out, it is written in Matthew 5:1-2 “Now when Jesus saw the crowds, he went up on a mountainside and sat down. His disciples came to him, and he began to teach them.” Can I tell someone today, Jesus cares, Jesus sees you in the crowd today, on that day he went up on a mountainside, but his teaching did not stop there. All he taught there, he backed up by going to another mountain called Mount Calvary, to give all good news.

As Jesus Christ sat on that mountainside to teach, he told the crowd gathered there using this metaphor as written in Matthew 5:13 “You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt looses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again?” It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled under foot.” In the literal Greek translation, Jesus actual said, “if the salt becomes foolish” wow! Think about that, if we the believers the church, the ‘salt ‘ become ‘foolish’, tell me, how can we proclaim his good news? Look around you, look at your very own household, look at yourself, your family and friends, you cannot tell me people are not hurting in one form or another, “if the salt becomes foolish.” Family, friends, have you ‘came to him’, like the crowd that day? If you were one that sat there that day, today, would you be ‘salty,’ or ‘foolish?’ good news! ¡bendiciones!

Strength in Dependency TODAY’S SCRIPTURE “But he said to me, ‘My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.’ Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me.” (2 Corinthians 12:9, ESV) TODAY’S WORD from Joel and Victoria We all have areas where we need to come up higher. Perhaps you’ve struggled with a certain area year after year. Instead of getting down on yourself or trying to find solutions on the internet, maybe it’s time to pray and say, “God, I need Your help. I’m asking for Your strength.” When you humble yourself and admit that you cannot do it on your own, that’s when God can enter the scene. That’s when He can turn it around. A lot of times we think of dependency in a negative light, but dependency on God is not a weakness; it’s a strength. It enables you to tap into His power. When we yield our weakness, that’s when God shows up the stronPhilippians 4:13 I can do all this gest. But when we don’t turn to God, really, that’s a through him who gives me strength. sign of pride. We’re saying, “God, I don’t really need You to help me run my life. I’m doing okay. I’ve got it all figured out.” God will step back and let us do it on our own. Today, what is holding you back? Surrender it to God. Let Him do His perfect work. Find strength in your dependency on Him. A PRAYER FOR TODAY Father, today I surrender all to You. Search my heart and mind. Show me if there is any area where I am trying to lean on my own strength. I choose today to trust and rely on You knowing that Your strength is perfect in my weakness in Jesus’ name. Amen.

2 Corinthians 12:5 I will boast about a man like that, but I will not boast about myself, except about my weaknesses. Ephesians 3:16 I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his

Wok & Rice started back up in Aug.8, 2012

TODAY’S WORD from Joel and Victoria Jesus said, “If you abide in Me, you will bear much fruit.” One translation says, “If you will depend on Me.” The word “depend” indicates continual action. You don’t depend once and then you’re done. It’s not, “Oh, I went to church on Sunday. I spent a couple hours. I did my duty.” No, if you’re going to depend on God, then all through the day your attitude should be, “God, I need You. God, help me to understand this subject in school. God, help me to raise these children.” That’s what it means to depend on God. The more you depend on God, the better things will work out. You will bear much fruit. We can take the opposite of what Jesus said. If we don’t depend on Him, we’re not going to bear much fruit. We’re not going to be as productive as we could have been. Today, choose to abide in Him. Find strength in Him and let Him empower you for everything you face in this life.

Own your own business, without your business owning you.

A PRAYER FOR TODAY Father, today I choose to abide in You. You are my source, my strength, my power for life. Keep me close to You and show me Your ways in Jesus’ name. Amen.

JULY 3, 2013 /// THE TEJANO TIMES ®™/// PG.07 Who God Rewards TODAY’S SCRIPTURE “And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.” (Hebrews 11:6, NIV)

2 -L 4.SM =6 Titus 1:16 They claim to know God, but by their actions they deny him. They are detestable, disobedient and unfit for doing anything good.

TODAY’S WORD from Joel and Victoria Do you see God as a rewarder today? Notice this verse doesn’t say that God rewards those who “deserve” it, or those who have “earned” it. It doesn’t say that God rewards those who act perfectly and never make mistakes. No, God’s blessing isn’t based on our performance; it’s based on our faith — our belief in Him and His goodness. In fact, one verse says that He longs to be good to those who are looking for His goodness!

Get your time back. Sitting in traffic for hours feels like you’re going nowhere. If you’re tired of spending more time in your car than you do at home, then,


Hebrews 7:25 Therefore he is able to save completely those who come to God through him, because he always lives to intercede for them.

I encourage you today to spend some time meditating on His goodness and dwelling on His faithfulness. Look for Him and expect Him to act. Spend some time reading the Psalms and begin to praise and thank Him for all He is doing. Open your eyes of faith and see all of the wonderful things He has prepared for you. Let His Word shape your thoughts, and remember, He is a rewarder! He wants to bless you today because you earnestly seek after Him!



As an Ambit Energy Independent Consultant, you can be your own boss – just by helping people save money on a service they already use every day. It’s really that simple!

Father God, thank You for Your Word which fills my heart with faith. I believe that You are good and You are a rewarder of those who seek after You. I seek You today. I acknowledge You and thank You for revealing Yourself to me in Jesus’ name. Amen.

Set your own hours and your own goals while working in the comfort of your own home. Use your time the way you want. Spend more time with family and friends. Or just use the extra hours to “energize” your finances by focusing on your new business. It’s the perfect win-win.

Honor Him in All That You Do TODAY’S SCRIPTURE “Remind people to be submissive to [their] magistrates and authori-

ties, to be obedient, to be prepared and willing to do any upright and honorable work.” (Titus 3:1, AMP)

TODAY’S WORD from Joel and Victoria

2 Timothy 2:21 Those who cleanse themselves from the latter will be instruments for special purposes, made holy, useful to the Master and prepared to do any good work.

In what ways do you honor God? A lot of times, people think, “I go to church to honor God. I read my Bible to honor God. I sing and clap to honor God.” And yes, those are ways to honor God, but did you know that you honor God just as much when you get to work on time? You honor God when you are productive each day and honor the people in authority over you. You honor God when you excel in your career. Actions speak louder than words. When you give your very best in

the workplace, your whole life is giving praise to God — it’s one of

the best witnesses you could ever have. Just showing up with a good attitude, friendly, organized, being your best — people will notice

there’s something different about you. They’ll want what you have.

As believers, we should set the standard in all areas of life. People should see the depth of your character and your spirit of excellence and know that you are a child of the Most High God. Make the deci-

sion to honor Him in all that you do because you are His representative in the earth today!

A PRAYER FOR TODAY Father, I choose to honor You in all that I do. I choose to set the

standard and do my very best. Thank You for the privilege to be Your representative. I love You and bless You in Jesus’ name! Amen.
