Ephesians 4:4 There is one body and one Spirit,

just as you were called to one hope when you were called;


It’s Never too Late TODAY’S SCRIPTURE

Ephesians 1:18 I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order

that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glori-

“The gifts and calling of God are without repentance.” (Romans 11:29, KJV)

ous inheritance in his holy people,

TODAY’S WORD from Joel and Victoria What could be worse than to come to the end of life filled with regrets? “If only I had pursued that dream. If only I had been more disciplined. If only I had taken that step of faith. If only I had forgiven.” Don’t let that be you. You may have put things off a lot longer than you should have, but the good news is that it’s not too late to get started. You can still become everything God has created you to be. Today, make the decision to stop making excuses. If you always make excuses, you’ll always have one. Don’t wait for a more convenient time. It says in Ecclesiastes, “If we wait for all the conditions to be just right, we’ll never move off of dead center.” Make a decision to just do it! Be a now person. Your destiny is calling out, and it’s never too late to be all that God has created you to be. A PRAYER FOR TODAY Father, thank You for making all things new. Thank You for renewing me, restoring me and setting me on the road to victory. Show me Your ways and give me the strength to embrace every opportunity that comes from You in Jesus’ name. Amen.

Ephesians 4:1 As a prisoner for the Lord, then, I urge you to live a life worthy of the calling you have received.

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

Make Room for Something Greater TODAY’S SCRIPTURE “So the last shall be first, and the first last: for many are called, but few chosen.” (Matthew 20:16, KJV) TODAY’S WORD from Joel and Victoria Before we are promoted in life, before we can be moved ahead, we have to be prepared. Sometimes it’s a spiritual preparation. Sometimes it’s a physical preparation, but we all go through seasons of preparation. Too often, people miss their appointed time simply because they are not ready. They haven’t prepared. They look around at others and think, “Well, so-and-so is more qualified than I am.” No, if you’ll get ready, if you’ll outgrow where you are, then God will make room for something greater. Don’t worry about who’s in line in front of you. You just keep growing, learning and getting prepared, and the right doors will open. The fact is that God may not want you to have your supervisor’s position. That may be too low for you. God may be about to thrust you right past them into a whole new level. You just be faithful to develop what God has placed in you, and He will take you further than you can ever imagine! A PRAYER FOR TODAY Father, today I open my heart and mind to the great things You have in store for my future. I choose to be faithful. I choose to prepare. I won’t look to the left or to the right, but I will keep my eyes on You, Jesus, the Author and Finisher of my faith in Jesus’ name. Amen!

2 Corinthians 4:6 For God, who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,” made his light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of God’s glory displayed in the face of Christ.

Our problem is sin and sin is anything we do that is wrong: Romans 3:23 – “For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.” The Result of Sin & the Gift of God: Romans 6:23 - “For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”

One Way for salvation: Romans 5:8 - “But God demonstrated his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” John 14:6 - “Jesus said, ‘I am the way, the truth, and the life; no man comes to the Father except through me.” Salvation is a gift: Ephesians 2:8-9 – “For by grace you have been saved through faith and that not of yourselves; it is a gift of God. Not of works, lest any man should boast.” So what does one have to do to receive salvation? Admit that we have sinned and be willing to turn from our sin. Believe that Jesus is God’s Son who died and was raised from the dead. Call on the Lord, confess our sins, and commit our life to Him. His word says: Romans 10:9 - “That if you will confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.” Romans 10:13 – “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” ¡Bendiciones!

Bring Forth the Treasures TODAY’S SCRIPTURE “A good man brings good things out of the good stored up in him...” Matthew 12:35 TODAY’S WORD from Joel and Victoria Recently, there was an article that told how the wealthiest places on earth are not the oil fields of the Middle East nor the diamond mines of South Africa. The wealthiest places are the cemeteries. Buried in the ground are businesses that were never formed, songs that were never sung, books that were never written, potential that was never realized, and dreams that never came to pass. Friend, don’t let that be you! Don’t go to your grave with your treasure still in you. Keep growing. Keep learning. Step out in faith and trust God. Bring forth the good treasure that God has placed within you. If you don’t know where to start, start by meditating on His Word. Let Him speak to your heart. Learn to hear His voice. Learn to obey quickly. Trust that He is good and will lead you in the path He has prepared for you. A PRAYER FOR TODAY Father, thank You for the good treasures You’ve deposited in me. I will be faithful to develop what You’ve entrusted to me. Help me, by Your Spirit, to stay close to You and follow Your leading every step of the way in Jesus’ name. Amen.

36”But I tell you that every careless word that

people speak, they shall give an accounting for it in the day of judgment.…

When people hear the story of David and Goliath, sometimes they think, “That was all God.” And yes, in a sense, I know it was God. But the truth is that God didn’t sling the stone. God didn’t cause it to hit at just the right spot. It was the skill God gave David that he had developed. Like David, God has put in you skill that can slay a giant. You have skill that can open new doors, skills that can lead to an abundant life, but the key is that your skill has to be developed. Every day that you spend growing, learning and improving, you’re getting prepared for that new level. Today, while you’re waiting for that new opportunity, start sharpening your skills. Study your boss. Study your manager. Learn that position. Be able to step into their shoes. When God sees that you are prepared, then He can open new doors. The scripture says, “Your gifts will make room for you.” Keep developing your skills because there is a giant slayer in you! A PRAYER FOR TODAY Father, thank You for depositing in me everything that I need for life and godliness. I choose to be faithful with what You have given me. I choose to sharpen my skills. Help me prepare for every opportunity You have for my future in Jesus’ name. Amen.

GOOD NEWS! I had the privilege this week of being a vessel through which God’s Holy Spirit moved and added three more souls into his Kingdom. It was amazing watching God’s spirit move as I asked this simple question- “If you were to die today, do you know your eternal destination?” The fact is it does not matter who you are no one is exempt we are all destined for eternity, you, your family, friends can all know where in his good news. We have all been given a choice to live eternally in the presence of God or in eternal torment, below is the plan God has given to all written in His word that secures where your eternal destination will be. But first I want to share a short testimony on how God through the Holy Spirit moved as I sat in the kitchen of a family member lifting up Jesus Christ. Once I concluded sharing God’s way of salvation I asked, - “do you want to receive Jesus?” This person in his mid 70’s years of age deeply rooted in Catholicism answered, - “well its been a long time I have not gone to the priest for confession.” I replied with what God’s word teaches, and asked the same question again and he responded with the same response, he first born son was sitting next to him and said, “no daddy, he is asking if right now you want to receive Jesus.” Then I asked again a third time at this point he understood and answered yes, his second born son was there also standing listening, all three with tears in their eyes received Jesus Christ as Lord, to God be the glory for His good news. This is what we the church ( born again believers in Jesus Christ ) have been commissioned to do as written in God’s word: Matthew 28:19-20 “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” Below simply share this: CONTINUE ON PAGE 12

Develop Your Talent TODAY’S SCRIPTURE “That you may walk (live and conduct yourselves) in a manner worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing to Him and desiring to please Him in all things, bearing fruit in every good work and steadily growing and increasing in and by the knowledge of God [with fuller, deeper, and clearer insight, acquaintance, and recognition].” (Colossians 1:10, AMP) TODAY’S WORD from Joel and Victoria Too many people suffer from “destination disease.” In other words, they’ve reached a certain level or obtained a goal, now they’re coasting in life off of what they’ve already learned. Studies tell us that 50% of people, after they graduate from high school, will never read an entire book the rest of their life. One reason is that people see learning as a period of life instead of a way of life. They think, “I’m out of school. I’m done with my training. I’ve got my job.” But, God never created us to reach one level and stop. Whether you’re 90 years old or 9 years old, you should be constantly learning, improving your skills, and getting better at what you do. The key is that you have to take responsibility for your growth. Growth is not automatic. What steps are you taking to get better? Are you reading books? Listening to teaching CD’s? Are you taking any courses on the internet? Going to any seminars? Do you have any mentors? Don’t just coast through life relying on what you’ve already learned. You have treasure on the inside. Develop your talent and become all that God created you to be. A PRAYER FOR TODAY Father, help me to develop the talents You have given me. Show me to how to continue growing, stretching and increasing. Help me to maximize what You’ve placed in my hand as I daily give You glory for Your faithfulness in my life in Jesus’ name. Amen.
