But you can, because the truth is your Heavenly Father is closer than you think. I have found that the intensity gets turned up when victory is near. The enemy would not be fighting so hard if he didn’t already know he was about to lose his grip on you. When those negative thoughts come that would discourage you, just remind yourself that you are a child of the Most High God. Let your words be, “I am an overcomer. I am the head and not the tail. I am a victor and not a victim.”

1 John 2:4 The man who says, “I know him,” but does not do what he commands is a liar, and the truth is not in him.

Scripture is full of people who were closer than they thought... •David faced impossible odds against Goliath, but he was moments away from victory (1 Samuel 17). •Elijah was surrounded by 400 false prophets, but the power of God was about to be revealed for everyone to see (1 Kings 18). •Joseph was forgotten and left in prison, but he was just a dream away from his royal position (Genesis 39–40).

Can you imagine if David dropped his slingshot and ran? What if Elijah had backed down? What if Joseph had stopped dreaming? They didn’t give up, and God gave them victory! These stories reveal that it is often the darkest right before the dawn. Perhaps today you are facing impossible odds. Maybe you feel surrounded, maybe you feel forgotten. The good news for you is that our God can act suddenly in your situation. In a moment’s notice, everything can change for the better! I believe and declare that God is going to open doors on your behalf. Your faith will be rewarded. Your dawn is almost here. He will put you in the right position to win. He is going to give you inside information. He will do the impossible in your life. Get ready! Victoria and I love you and pray for you every day. We are believing God’s best for you, and we are so excited that you are going to see God move in your situation sooner than you think! You are going to be amazed at His goodness in the days to come.

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.

Give Him Your Cares

Did you know there is such a thing as “free energy?” At least, there is with Ambit Energy.

TODAY’S SCRIPTURE “Your word have I laid up in my heart, that I might not sin against You” (Psalm 119:11, AMP)

TODAY’S WORD from Joel and Victoria God desires to take care of whatever may be concerning you today. He invites you to give your worries and cares to Him simply because He loves you!

TODAY’S WORD from Joel and Victoria Did you know that the Word of God has the power to protect you and keep you from doing the things you know you shouldn’t do? Hebrews tells us that the Word of God is living and active; it’s powerful in our lives. God communicates to us through His written Word, the Bible, and He communicates with us through His spoken Word which can come in many ways. In scripture, God spoke to people through a burning bush, a still small voice, and even a donkey. Today, He may speak to your heart through a friend, a worship song, or something in creation. One thing is for sure, when He does speak, your spirit knows it. There is confirmation in your inner man. God always speaks truth, and truth always sets you free!

Then, thank Him for giving you peace and joy. Thank Him for working in your life. As you keep an attitude of faith and expectancy, give Him your worries and cares and get ready for the blessing He has for your future!

Simply refer people you know to use Ambit Energy and reduce the amount of your energy bill each month. You might even eliminate your bill completely!

A PRAYER FOR TODAY Father in heaven, I come to You today casting my cares on You. I choose to believe Your Word and trust that You are working behind the scenes on my behalf. I give You all the praise and glory in Jesus’ name. Amen.

Power in His Word

TODAY’S SCRIPTURE “Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you” (1 Peter 5:7, NLT)

How do you give Him your cares? First of all, understand that cares show up in your mind. When negative, self-defeating thoughts of worry come, you have to recognize them as cares and replace them with the Word of God. For example, if you are concerned about a need today, say out loud, “My God shall supply all my needs according to His riches in glory.” If you have fear about something, say out loud, “God has not given me a spirit of fear, but of power, love and a sound mind.” If you have sickness in your body, declare, “By His stripes I am healed.” As you meditate on the truth and focus your heart and mind on the Father, those cares and concerns will disappear.

Matthew 6:27 Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life?

Matthew 6:34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.

God’s Word also protects you. When you hold His Word close to your heart, it acts like a shield around your heart. You hold His Word close to you by meditating on it, focusing on it, thinking about it and declaring it. As you allow His truth to sink into your spirit, it will empower you and change you. It will equip you to live the good life He has prepared for you! A PRAYER FOR TODAY Heavenly Father, thank You for Your Word which strengthens and protects me. Thank You for speaking truth to my heart. Help me to hear Your voice more clearly that I may live a life pleasing to You in Jesus’ name. Amen.

A Glimpse of Heaven

July 4, 2012 /// THE TEJANO

TIMES ®™/// PG. 05

TODAY’S SCRIPTURE “Your kingdom come, your will be done on earth as it is in heaven” (Matthew 6:10, NIV) TODAY’S WORD from Joel and Victoria God longs to give you a glimpse of heaven while you are here on earth. He wants to show you His wonderful plan and bring it to pass in your life. Have you ever thought about how God’s will is accomplished in heaven? In heaven, God’s will is automatic. There are no opposing forces of darkness or anything that would come against His will. On earth, His will is activated in our lives when we receive Jesus as our Lord and Savior; and then, we must choose His will on a daily basis in our thoughts, words and actions. On earth, we have to stand against the forces of darkness and refuse those negative, self-defeating thoughts that come against His will.

Job 29:14 I put on righteousness as my clothing; justice was my robe and my turban. Galatians 3:27 for all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ.

Galatians 5:16 So I say, live by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the sinful nature.

Cover Yourself with Him TODAY’S SCRIPTURE “Clothe yourself with the Lord Jesus Christ (the Messiah), and make no provision for [indulging] the flesh [put a stop to thinking about the evil cravings of your physical nature]” (Romans 13:14, AMP)

5L Pics 5S = 10

TODAY’S WORD from Joel and Victoria Is there something in your life that you would like to put a stop to today? Maybe it’s a certain behavior, addiction or bad attitude that isn’t pleasing to God? Just as Adam and Eve were exposed in their sin and needed to be clothed in the Garden, we need to clothe ourselves to protect us from sin. When you “clothe yourself ” with the Lord Jesus Christ, He strengthens you against temptation. How do you clothe yourself with Jesus Christ? In the same way you cover yourself in the natural with clothing — by putting something on. You have to daily “put on” the Word of God. You have to cover your ears by listening to the Word. You cover your eyes by watching only what is pleasing to the Lord. You cover your mouth by speaking the Word and encouraging those around you. As you cover yourself with Christ, you will be strong against temptation, and you will walk in the victory the Lord has planned for you!

A PRAYER FOR TODAY Heavenly Father, thank You for sending Your Son, Jesus, to pay the penalty for my sins. Thank You for providing a way out of temptation so that I can stand clean before You. Help me stand strong as I cover myself with Your Word in Jesus’ name. Amen.

A PRAYER FOR TODAY Heavenly Father, I humbly come to You today and invite Your will to be done in my life. I submit every area of my heart to You. Let everything I say and do bring glory to You in Jesus’ name. Amen.

Matthew 4:17 From that time on Jesus began to preach, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is near.”


TIMES ®™/// July 4, 2012

How many times like Daniel and his companions have you found yourself with no lack but yet purposing not to take or be a part of something that you know is wrong and does not honor God? I know its tough but when we choose like Daniel chose not to defile himself and take the easy way, we too will experience God’s favor. I have learned through out the years in God’s faithfulness when you walk in your best obedience honoring his principles, you loose to gain, and his favor will see you through. And when it is all said and done in this age as we know it and we are raptured away we will see grace face to face and the enemy will be no more, forever with are Redeemer Jesus Christ.

GOOD NEWS! What foods are you willing to eat for a healthier lifestyle? I ask this question since last week in the article I talked about Daniel a prophet of God, he along with other Israelites were taken by the armies of King Nebuchadnezzar to Babylon. In the midst of this horrible experience to say the least, Daniel made a decision not to give in to a lifestyle that went against the principles of God, Jehovah. So metaphorically speaking I ask, what foods are you willing to eat for a healthier lifestyle? Place yourself in the shoes of Daniel, he was taken captive from Judah to Babylon to an environment that was hostile and wanted nothing to do with his God. Maybe like Daniel you find yourself captive in areas of your life that are hard to deal with, I challenge you purpose in your heart not to give in, and watch God bring forth good news. Picking up from the scripture I shared last week it reads the following in the Old Testament first part of the verse in Daniel 1:8 “But Daniel purposed in his heart that he would not defile himself with the king’s dainties, nor with the wine which he drank ...” A time in Daniel’s life not by choice he was in a foreign land taken captive, by order of the kings word Daniel amongst others were to be trained in the learning and tongue of the Chaldeans. No doubt even though their was no lack of food, drink, or shelter, the fact that they were under the authority of their enemies they could not enjoy all they had before them. “ But Daniel purposed in his heart that he would not defile himself with the king’s dainties, nor with the wine which he drank ...” How unpleasant to have no lack and yet be captive, stay with me I have good news. In these cultures and in these times naming someone by a certain name to give them a mark of identity if you will was practiced and common. Check out the meaning of the names of Daniel and his companions from Judah: Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah. All Hebrew origin names that marked there destiny, first Daniel means ‘God is my judge’, Hananiah means ‘God has favored’ , Mishael means ‘Who is like God?’ , and Azariah means ‘Whom the Lord helps’. You see God created all for a purpose and a destiny that is fulfilling and it does matter what culture, social status, and any other area of who or where you are or what you might be going through, you are a creation of God. You have been named and strategically place in a world of over 7 billion in population to be an instrument of his good news. - - - / PH.# 325.829.2389 - - - / PH.# 325.829.2389

Psalm 119:66 Teach me knowledge and good judgment, for I believe in your commands.

It reads in the gospel of Jesus Christ according to John, in the first part of the verse of John 10:10 “The thief cometh not, but that he may steal, and kill, and destroy: ...” The enemy will move in and steal all he can and cause you to submit to an identity of defeat if permitted, check out the names that were given to Daniel and his companions from there enemy. All were renamed in there tongue, first Daniel: renamed Belteshazzar-means ‘who lays up treasures in secret’, Hananiah renamed Shadrach means ‘tender’, Mishael renamed Meshach means ‘who is drawn by force’, and Azariah renamed Abednego means ‘servant of light, shining’. Yes the enemy will cause anyone that submits to think of him or herself less than what God destined for all. Family, friend choose like Daniel a diet despite hard that produces his good news. ¡bendiciones! Robert Muñoz “Under Construction!”

Hundreds of area residents found themselves transported to the undersea world of Bikini Bottom Monday evening for a party with Spongebob Squarepants and his friend, Patrick Starfish. The famous pair of Nickolodean cartoon characters welcomed children, parents and grandparents to Gatti’s in Abilene for a night of thrills and fun.

Psalm 126:5 Those who sow in tears will reap with songs of joy. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------Proverbs 11:18 The wicked man earns deceptive wages, but he who sows righteousness reaps a sure reward. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------Ecclesiastes 11:1 Cast your bread upon the waters, for after many days you will find it again.

Only the youngest infants failed to recognize the two undersea celebrities. Toddlers ran to embrace the two, some screaming, “Bob” or “Patrick” as they crossed the floor. Older children wore Spongebob house slippers, shirts and caps, proudly showing the items to their square, yellow hero. This reporter sported her beloved Spongebob watch, which was admired by the sponge himself. Countless photos of Spongebob and Patrick were snapped by parents and grandparents as the children embraced the popular cartoon figures. Donna Click, Supervisor of Marketing at Gatti’s, escorted the bigger-than-life celebrities around the premises, ensuring that each child had opportunities to meet and greet them. Check with Gatti’s for details of the next evening of incredible fun, great food and unforgettable memories!

If you are praying according to His promises, no matter how long you may have been standing, don’t give up! Your season is coming. Your harvest of blessing is on its way.
