HOPE IN THE LORD TODAY’S SCRIPTURE

“So Moses told the people of Israel what the LORD had said, but they refused to listen anymore. They had become too discouraged by the brutality of their slavery.” (Exodus 6:9, NLT)

TODAY’S WORD from Joel and Victoria When you hear that “God wants to bring you out better,” does something come alive in your spirit? Something that says, “Yes, this is for me. I have not seen my best days. God has greater things in my future”?

Psalm 86:5 You, Lord, are forgiving and good, abounding in love to all who call to you.

Maybe you want to believe, but like the Israelites, you’ve been burdened down by adversity, trials and cares of this life. Maybe your mind has tried to talk you out of it saying, “This is not for you. You never get any good breaks. You’ll never be healthy. You’ll never be successful.” No, do yourself a favor. At least temporarily, turn your mind off and receive what God is saying. You may have gone through a loss, but God is going to bring you out better — promoted, increased, healthier, stronger and wiser. Scripture tells us to cast our cares on the Lord because He cares for us. He doesn’t want us to carry a heavy load, discouraged and overwhelmed by things He already has the answer to. Don’t look at your circumstances; look to Jesus. Put your hope in Him. He is the author and finisher of your faith, and He will bring you out better and stronger than ever before!

A PRAYER FOR TODAY Father, today I cast my cares on You. I put my faith and hope in You. I believe that You are working behind the scenes on my behalf, and I give You all the praise and thanks as I wait with expectancy for Your goodness in Jesus’ name. Amen.

Psalm 10:17 You, LORD, hear the desire of the afflicted; you encourage them, and you listen to their cry,

FAMILY, PROVIDENCE! FAMILY/EXTENDED FAMILY ¡SALÚDOS! My prayer is that you and your loved ones will reach your God given destiny, found in Jesus Christ the son of God. As promised, I am humbled to share another part of the testimony from my second born.

( CALL OR EMAIL, WILL COME TO YOUR LOCAL CHURCH OR COMMUNITY AND SHARE HIS GOOD NEWS! ) PROVIDENCE!

Testimony Part 1:

http://youtu.be/r9CPz3JvmAA

I’m certain that at some point or another we have all wondered if the bad situation that one might be in currently will ever change for the better. Could be a painful divorce, a broken relationship, wayward children, financial hardships, or a serious illness that not only is hurting the individual that is inflicted but also the loved ones watching the victim. Providence, I submit to you and your loved ones God cares! Our God is a covenant keeping God and just as he did through Moses freeing the Israelites he will do for you. Your journey might seem like it will never end, oh! but in the desert God will display his good news.

Jeremiah 27:5 With my great power and outstretched arm I made the earth and its people and the animals that are on it, and I give it to anyone I please.

Psalm 146:6 He is the Maker of heaven and earth, the sea, and everything in them -- he remains faithful forever.

God’s promise to Abraham then, is also ours today in Jesus Christ our exodus!

GOOD NEWS! It reads in Exodus 12:31-32 “During the night Pharaoh summoned Moses and Aaron and said, Up! Leave my people, you and the Israelites! Go, worship the Lord as you have requested. Take your flocks and herds, as you have said, and go. And also bless me.” Providence! Now watch and receive today your exodus from what is binding you and be freed, He will never break His promises, what He did then He still does today. God will do what he did then for the Israelites, watch this when God called Moses as the chosen vessel to lead the Israelites out of the Egyptian bondage Moses asked the following question, and received the following answer. It reads in Exodus 3:13 ...”What is his name?..” Exodus 3:14 ...”I AM WHO I AM...” Why did God tell Moses “I AM WHO I AM” when he asked “What is his name?”, allow me, I have good news. The journey from the Egypt exodus to the land God promised the Israelites could have taken around two weeks, but in place of two weeks Israel wondered in the desert forty years. Now watch, a week ago a relative of mine called me to request a prayer for a setback of an illness that has been very tough to deal with. We talked a little, caught up on how family is doing, and then before I prayed with her I reminded her their is a purpose that you may not understand right now, as to why you have been going through this. I told her I know, you need healing, so I reminded her remember what God answered to Moses when he asked him what is your name? I said, he answered, “I AM” Family, friend, what God is doing in my life and loved ones he will do for you and your loved ones, whatever your need “I AM”, in his providence will display good news.

WE PRAY THIS WORD & JOSHUA’S TESTIMONY EDIFIES YOUR FAITH IN JESUS CHRIST OUR LORD.

‘Good News’ word from my second born, I am looking forward to the word God will breathe upon Joshua, I have asked him to share a word for the ‘Good News’ article. Keep watch, also coming a word for you and yours, more on what I mean “God wants to raise a Moses and an Aaron, for such a time as this!” What a privilege to be able to proclaim good news, as I go back and meditate on the word I have been sharing in these ‘GOOD NEWS’ articles about God’s providence, it does something in my spirit. You see the ‘Good News’ testimony video I recently shared about my first born son, is not about attraction, or anything that would cause a display on myself or my son. Its simply about unashamedly proclaiming good news.

Jesus Christ ( 1 Corinthians 10:4 )

GOOD NEWS! The Israelites were set free from their bondage in Egypt, Pharaoh was no match for God, finally after putting up a fight, he had to give in. It reads in Exodus 12:31-32 “During the night Pharaoh summoned Moses and Aaron and said, Up! Leave my people, you and the Israelites! Go, worship the Lord as you have requested. Take your flocks and herds, as you have said, and go. And also bless me.” They walked away freed, but when they arrived at the Desert of Zin, scriptures tell us they had no water to drink and the people quarreled with Moses and Aaron. You see the enemy does not give up, he is causing the same chaos today in our family’s, even though he knows God has provided an exodus for you and I in the Lord Jesus Christ. Now watch, when you place your trust in him despite what is against you, he will display his good news. Allow me to elaborate on what I meant regarding the comment I made, and I am quoting myself- “it does something in my spirit”, sharing a word about God’s divine providence. God was watching over the Israelites and in his mercy responding to their outcry he sent them a deliverer. They walked out of the Egyptian bondage, but when they found themselves in the desert watch what scriptures tell us, it reads in Numbers 20:6 “Moses and Aaron went from the assembly to the entrance to the tent of meeting and fell face down, and the glory of the Lord appeared to them.” Family, friend, God wants to raise a Moses and an Aaron type in our families so you can be set free from whatever bondage the enemy wants to enslave you in. Are you responding like Moses and Aaron? ‘fell face down’, or ‘quarrel’? His glory will display to you his good news.

PRAYER REQUEST JOIN ME IN PRAYING ALWAYS

HE’LL MAKE UP FOR LOST TIME

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. (by this paper). .. amen, amen.

TODAY’S SCRIPTURE “I will repay you for the years the locusts have eaten...” (Joel 2:25, NIV) TODAY’S WORD from Joel and Victoria Friend, God knows how to make up for years you’ve lost in your life. No, you can’t relive your childhood, but God can make the rest of your life so rewarding, so fulfilling that you don’t even miss what didn’t happen in the past. You may feel like you wasted years in a relationship that didn’t work out. But God can bring somebody into your life so great, so fun, so friendly, so attractive that you don’t even remember the years that you’ve lost. You may have spent years on a job that turned out to be a dead end. You were working your way to the top; things didn’t turn out like you had hoped, and now it looks like there’s a big waste of time. You may not Psalm 115:11 You who fear him, trust in the LORD-he is their (our) help and shield.

see how you could ever get to where you want to be, but don’t believe those lies. God knows how to make up for lost time. God can accelerate things. God can bring opportunities back across your path that you missed that will thrust you years ahead. It may not have happened the first time, but God will always give you another chance. He’ll make up for the lost time and bring you out better and stronger than ever before!

A PRAYER FOR TODAY Father, You are my Redeemer. Thank You for Your promise to restore to me the years that have been lost or wasted. I receive Your promise by faith. I put my trust and hope in You and believe that my best days are out ahead of me in Jesus’ name. Amen.

Extol Him, All You Peoples! 1O praise the LORD, all you nations: praise him, all you people. 2For his merciful kindness is great toward us: and the truth of the LORD endures for ever. Praise you the LORD. 1O give thanks to the LORD; for he is good: because his mercy endures for ever.

DARE TO ASK

TODAY’S SCRIPTURE “Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think.” (Ephesians 3:20, NLT) TODAY’S WORD from Joel and Victoria When was the last time you asked God to do something impossible, something out of the ordinary? I believe that one reason we don’t see God do great things is because we only ask Him for small things. Most people pray over their food, pray for protection, or pray for wisdom. That’s all good, but don’t limit what God can do. There should be something you’re praying about, something that you’re asking for that is beyond you, something that you can’t accomplish in your own strength. Do you dare to ask?

Psalm 145:19 He fulfills the desires of those who fear him; he hears their cry and saves them.

All through the scripture, we see people doing this. Elisha prayed that it wouldn’t rain, and for three and a half years there was no rain. Joshua prayed for more daylight, and God stopped the sun. Follow their example and step out in faith. Dare to ask, dare to believe God, and see His mighty hand move on your behalf! A PRAYER FOR TODAY Father, today I give praise and glory to You because You are worthy, You are able, and You are at work in me. I dare to ask for the impossible, to believe that You can accomplish infinitely more than I could ever ask or think in Jesus’ name. Amen.

SECRET PETITIONS TODAY’S SCRIPTURE

Get your time back.

JOB 22:25 THEN THE ALMIGHTY WILL BE YOUR GOLD, THE CHOICEST SILVER FOR YOU.

ABILENE, SAN ANGELO & SURROUNDING AREAS, HAVE WE GOT THE PERFECT OPPORTUNITY FOR YOU.

In the Psalms, it talks about the secret petitions of our heart. These are the hidden dreams that you haven’t told anybody about. One way you know they’re from God is that they’re so big you cannot accomplish them on your own. God does this on purpose so that it will take faith. Faith is what pleases God. Faith is what allows Him to do the impossible. So God will put something big before you where you don’t have all the talent, the education, the connections or the confidence. God will even allow certain obstacles that we can’t overcome on our own.

A PRAYER FOR TODAY

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!

So come be a part of something big and become an Ambit Energy Independent Consultant today. Discover how you can build your own successful business offering the one thing everyone needs – ENERGY.

TODAY’S WORD from Joel and Victoria

Today, if you’ve been believing God for something that seems like it’s taking a long time, don’t give up! Remember, God knows exactly where you are. He knows the desires He’s placed within you. He’s working things together for your good. He’s promised to finish what He started, and as you delight yourself in Him, He will give you the desires and secret petitions of your heart!

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,

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.

“Delight yourself also in the Lord, and He will give you the desires and secret petitions of your heart.” (Psalm 37:4, AMP)

Father, I humbly come to You today, giving You all that I am. Thank You for fulfilling every desire in my heart. Mold me and shape me into Your image. Remove anything from my life that is displeasing to You so that everything I do brings glory to You in Jesus’ name. Amen.

JOB 22:26 SURELY THEN YOU WILL FIND DELIGHT IN THE ALMIGHTY AND WILL LIFT UP YOUR FACE TO GOD.
