Psalm 66:1-12
Praise for God’s Goodness to Israel
To the leader. A Song. A Psalm.
1  Make a joyful noise to God, all the earth;
2    sing the glory of his name;
     give to him glorious praise.
3  Say to God, “How awesome are your deeds!
     Because of your great power, your enemies cringe
         before you.
4  All the earth worships you;
     they sing praises to you,
     sing praises to your name.”   Selah

5  Come and see what God has done:
     he is awesome in his deeds among mortals.
6  He turned the sea into dry land;
     they passed through the river on foot.
   There we rejoiced in him,
7    who rules by his might forever,
   whose eyes keep watch on the nations—
     let the rebellious not exalt themselves.   Selah

8  Bless our God, O peoples,
     let the sound of his praise be heard,
9  who has kept us among the living,
     and has not let our feet slip.
10 For you, O God, have tested us;
     you have tried us as silver is tried.
11 You brought us into the net;
     you laid burdens on our backs;
12 you let people ride over our heads;
     we went through fire and through water;
   yet you have brought us out to a spacious place.

Jeremiah 27:1-22
The Sign of the Yoke
27:1 In the beginning of the reign of King Zedekiah son of Josiah of Judah, this word came to Jeremiah from the Lord. 2 Thus the Lord said to me: Make yourself a yoke of straps and bars, and put them on your neck. 3 Send word to the king of Edom, the king of Moab, the king of the Ammonites, the king of Tyre, and the king of Sidon by the hand of the envoys who have come to Jerusalem to King Zedekiah of Judah. 4 Give them this charge for their masters: Thus says the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel: This is what you shall say to your masters: 5 It is I who by my great power and my outstretched arm have made the earth, with the people and animals that are on the earth, and I give it to whomever I please. 6 Now I have given all these lands into the hand of King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon, my servant, and I have given him even the wild animals of the field to serve him. 7 All the nations shall serve him and his son and his grandson, until the time of his own land comes; then many nations and great kings shall make him their slave.

8 But if any nation or kingdom will not serve this king, Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon, and put its neck under the yoke of the king of Babylon, then I will punish that nation with the sword, with famine, and with pestilence, says the Lord, until I have completed its destruction by his hand. 9 You, therefore, must not listen to your prophets, your diviners, your dreamers, your soothsayers, or your sorcerers, who are saying to you, “You shall not serve the king of Babylon.” 10 For they are prophesying a lie to you, with the result that you will be removed far from your land; I will drive you out, and you will perish. 11 But any nation that will bring its neck under the yoke of the king of Babylon and serve him, I will leave on its own land, says the Lord, to till it and live there.

12 I spoke to King Zedekiah of Judah in the same way: Bring your necks under the yoke of the king of Babylon, and serve him and his people, and live. 13 Why should you and your people die by the sword, by famine, and by pestilence, as the Lord has spoken concerning any nation that will not serve the king of Babylon? 14 Do not listen to the words of the prophets who are telling you not to serve the king of Babylon, for they are prophesying a lie to you. 15 I have not sent them, says the Lord, but they are prophesying falsely in my name, with the result that I will drive you out and you will perish, you and the prophets who are prophesying to you.

16 Then I spoke to the priests and to all this people, saying, Thus says the Lord: Do not listen to the words of your prophets who are prophesying to you, saying, “The vessels of the Lord’s house will soon be brought back from Babylon,” for they are prophesying a lie to you. 17 Do not listen to them; serve the king of Babylon and live. Why should this city become a desolation? 18 If indeed they are prophets, and if the word of the Lord is with them, then let them intercede with the Lord of hosts, that the vessels left in the house of the Lord, in the house of the king of Judah, and in Jerusalem may not go to Babylon. 19 For thus says the Lord of hosts concerning the pillars, the sea, the stands, and the rest of the vessels that are left in this city, 20 which King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon did not take away when he took into exile from Jerusalem to Babylon King Jeconiah son of Jehoiakim of Judah, and all the nobles of Judah and Jerusalem— 21 thus says the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel, concerning the vessels left in the house of the Lord, in the house of the king of Judah, and in Jerusalem: 22 They shall be carried to Babylon, and there they shall stay, until the day when I give attention to them, says the Lord. Then I will bring them up and restore them to this place.

2 Timothy 2:1-7
A Good Soldier of Christ Jesus
2:1 You then, my child, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus; 2 and what you have heard from me through many witnesses entrust to faithful people who will be able to teach others as well. 3 Share in suffering like a good soldier of Christ Jesus. 4 No one serving in the army gets entangled in everyday affairs; the soldier’s aim is to please the enlisting officer. 5 And in the case of an athlete, no one is crowned without competing according to the rules. 6 It is the farmer who does the work who ought to have the first share of the crops. 7 Think over what I say, for the Lord will give you understanding in all things.

The Daily Prayer for FRIDAY, October 11, 2019

The Daily Prayer
FRIDAY, October 11, 2019

Early church apologist Minucius Felix wrote, “What a beautiful sight it is for God when a Christian mocks at the clatter of the tools of death and the horror of the executioner; when he defends and upholds his liberty in the face of kings and princes, obeying God alone to whom he belongs. Among us, boys and frail women laugh to scorn torture and the gallows cross, the wild beasts and all the other horrors of execution!”

Lord, we pray against fear of persecution and death, knowing we are always walking toward eternal life as we follow the path you have set for us. Amen.

La infidelidad… enemiga del amor

Mis ojos pondré en los fieles de la tierra, para que estén conmigo; el que ande en el camino de la perfección, este me servirá.
Salmo 101:6 (RV-60)

La infidelidad es enemiga del amor y un cuchillo que corta el alma. Por eso, Dios quiere que enderecemos nuestros caminos.

Es triste que haya personas que tenga ese tipo de experiencia, ya sea por su traición o porque las traicionen.

Dios ve la infidelidad como un pecado y se cataloga por igual tanto en el hombre como en la mujer. Por tradición, el hombre siempre ha sido más infiel, pero la verdad es que hoy en día las mujeres también tienen altos índices en este aspecto. Además, es tan fuerte que hasta son capaces de dejar a un lado a sus hijos y vivir una aventura.

La infidelidad es la peor decisión que podemos tomar. Tiene consecuencias muy dolorosas y te deja un vacío que solo puede llenar Dios con su perdón. No vale la pena arriesgar lo que tienes por unos momentos de placer, pues después la soledad y la culpabilidad serán tus compañeros.

Dios quiere hoy enderezar tu camino y quiere que valores el hombre que te ha dado. Y si no tienes pareja, tampoco tienes derecho al hombre ajeno. En mi caso, el Señor me llevó por un proceso de restauración tan doloroso que aprendí la lección, pero no me salvé de vivir las consecuencias.

Por eso te invito a que rompas hoy con esa relación. Pídele a Dios que te perdone y te dé la oportunidad de una nueva vida.

No siembres en la vida de los demás lo que no quisieras vivir en ti o en tus hijos. La infidelidad te lleva a la muerte espiritual.

Standing Strong Through the Storm - Friday, October 11, 2019

“Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the LORD your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.”
Deuteronomy 31:6 (NIV)

“When I was pregnant with our sixth child,” says Bahar from Central Asia, “my husband Bahtiyar fell ill and was diagnosed with stomach cancer. We often prayed for his healing and together with the few other believers in our village we looked to God for His help. Bahtiyar was also seeing a doctor, but not much could be done for him.

“Shortly before Bahtiyar’s death several men from the village mosque came to our house and talked to him. They knew he had been a Muslim before and had become a Christian. Now, when he was so ill, they started debating with him and urged him to return to Islam, promising that they would give him a decent burial. Bahtiyar did not have to think about it at all; he refused to deny Jesus and sent the men away.

“He was with us for three more days; then he passed away and went to be with the Lord. It is our custom to bury our dead on the same day, so when my son went to the other believers in the village and told them that his dad had died they arrived immediately to arrange his funeral. They and other Christians from a nearby town did everything that needed to be done and really took good care of us as a family. According to our tradition Bahtiyar’s body was put in a yurt so people could pay their respects.

“As we lived in a small village the news that Bahtiyar had died was out in no time and it did not take long before the Mullah and many men from the village came to the yurt and started to shout at the believers. “You can’t bury him here in our cemetery, we don’t want him here! This man has left our religion, he has betrayed us, and we don’t want him to defile our cemetery. Find another place!” They were really angry and even threatened to burn our house and the yurt with Bahtiyar’s body. The believers called the police but it took a while before they arrived. Meantime they moved his body to Kisul, another village nearby.

“For a while I was completely confused and did not know what to do. Was God still in control? Was He watching over us as a family, over me? Here I was, pregnant with my sixth child, my husband had just died, we had so many problems burying him and the whole village, including my own mother in law, was against us. Where and how were we going to live?

“God has promised in His Word that He will never leave us, nor forsake us, and He never does. For a brief period I thought that God had left me, but fortunately that did not last long. Soon God reassured me of His presence, I rediscovered my joy in God and I trust that He is in control, even though things in our family have been very difficult this last year.

RESPONSE: Today I will rejoice in God’s reassurance of His presence and control of all things in my life.

PRAYER: Thank You, Lord, that You are concerned about the smallest details of my life regardless of the circumstances.

Men of the Bible - Friday, October 11, 2019

James and John

John's name means: "Yahweh Has Been Gracious." James' name, a form of "Jacob," means "He Grasps the Heel" (figuratively, "He Deceives")

Their work: James and his younger brother John were career fishermen working in their father's business on the Sea of Galilee.
Their character: James was quiet and analytical; John was verbal and open. Both of these hardworking men were profoundly changed when they met Jesus. Not only did they follow him, but they were brought into his inner circle along with Peter, their friend and business associate.
Their sorrow: Following Jesus cost them everything. They left their family business, their familiar surroundings, their friends, and even their families to walk with the Savior.
Their triumph: What may have started as pure adventure—following the Teacher—ended in a revolution that changed the world.
Key Scriptures: Matthew 4:18-22; 16:13-17:9

A Look at the Men

Life was good for Zebedee. He owned a prosperous fishing enterprise, and he and his wife, Salome, had two sons who were partners with him in the business.

Although it must have been a blow to their fishing company when James and John left their nets to follow Jesus, there is no evidence that Zebedee and Salome resisted their sons' decision. "After all," they may have said to each other, "think how good this will be for the boys to be seen with the Teacher. Maybe it will even be good for business."

For their part, James and John would never look back. They lived with the Savior. They walked hundreds of miles with him and saw him perform awesome miracles, all the while wondering who he was. Whenever he was asked by commoners and Pharisees, he sidestepped their questions. Why doesn't he just go ahead and declare his messiahship? the disciples wondered.

And then, after two years of being with Jesus, Zebedee and Salome's sons went to the mountain with their friend Peter and saw the light. These men caught a glimpse of the glory of God. And like Moses and Isaiah before them, they were completely dumbfounded. This was the Messiah. They no longer doubted.

From that moment forward, Jesus had a special relationship with James, John, and Peter. He put them in his inner circle as his closest associates. When James and John reported this to Zebedee and Salome, they must have been proud. But Salome took a step beyond good sense when she went to Jesus with an ill-advised request. "One day, when you come into power," she said to the Savior, thinking he would one day be an earthly king, "could you give my sons the highest rank in the land? So lofty would be their positions that one would sit to the right of your throne and one would sit to the left."

This request wasn't just coming from a doting mother. She and her sons had discussed it, for when Jesus said, "You don't have any idea what you're asking," the answer was in the plural. "Yes, we do!" they answered.

When the other disciples heard about James's and John's request, they were outraged—probably because they had wanted these positions of prominence for themselves!

And then, in one short moment, history's most profound lesson in leadership was delivered. Jesus' words must have seared the disciples' hearts. "Heathen leaders take their power and cram it down the throats of their subjects," he told them. "But you're not to do this."

James's and John's faces must have flushed. Jesus was talking to all twelve of the disciples, but it was these two brothers who really felt the sting of his words. Sideward glances from the others made it worse.

"Whoever wants to be great among you must be your servant, and whoever wants to be first must be your slave." James and John were transfixed by Jesus' words, but he wasn't quite finished. "I, the Messiah, did not come to be served, but to serve," Jesus said. Then he added, "And to give my life as a ransom for many."

Following Jesus' resurrection, James, John, and five other disciples were back on the sea late at night. They fished all night but caught nothing. As the morning sun peeked over the horizon, they saw a man standing on the shore. "Throw your net on the right side of the boat," he hollered to them. When they did, they couldn't pull the net in because it was so full of fish. "It's Jesus," John said, recognizing the cadence of his voice and the power of his words. "It's Jesus!"

Once on shore, the disciples and Jesus had breakfast together. His final words after the meal, although directed at Peter, were surely for each of the seven disciples who were there. They are words for us as well. "You want to lead?" Jesus asked. "Then feed my sheep."

Reflect On: Matthew 4:18–20
Praise God: For God’s glory.
Offer Thanks: For the life-changing power of God’s presence and holiness.
Confess: Any unwillingness to risk it all to be Jesus’ disciple—any temptation to treat Jesus like your buddy or your example rather than the glorified and perfect Son of the living God.
Ask God: To challenge you to acknowledge his presence more frequently. Wherever you are, whatever you’re doing, listen to his voice saying to you, “Follow me.”

LHM Daily Devotions - October 11, 2019 - What God Can Do

"What God Can Do"

Oct. 11, 2019

"Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you were born I consecrated you; I appointed you a prophet to the nations."
Jeremiah 1:5 (ESV)

God created us to live purposeful and meaningful lives. In the Scripture above, God created the prophet Jeremiah as a prophet to the nations; that is why he was born. We too have been created for work that is pleasing to God. Sadly, most people live and die and never discover why they were born or what their lives are all about.

The word "purpose" means the original intent or plan for which something exists or for which it has been done or made. A life without purpose causes inner emptiness, frustration, discouragement, and disappointment. Purpose is a motivator. It gives us hope and a sense of direction for our lives. It gives us an answer to that why question for our lives. Ecclesiastes 3:1 tells us, "For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven."

Now, as is often the case, we trip and stumble through life sometimes. If you have made decisions that have hindered the fulfillment of God's purpose for your life, He has a rescue plan to restore you and get you back on track. Perhaps a review of some examples from Scripture of how God rescued others will be helpful here.

Remember Gideon (see Judges 6-8). He was a coward. He was a young man with no vision, but later God revealed His purpose and plan for his life through an angel. Ultimately, Gideon became a mighty leader with God later calling him a "mighty man of valor" (Judges 6:12b). Then there was Moses (see Exodus 3). He was guilty of murder, but he ended up being a great deliverer. What God can do with a life only God knows. As we have just seen, He can use the most unlikely people to accomplish His purposes. The same is true for us. We may have blown it big time, but God is always there to pick up the pieces.

And while we're at it, let's not forget Saul—later called Paul—of Tarsus (see Acts 8-9, 13). As you may remember, he violently persecuted early followers of Jesus, attempting, if at all possible, to exterminate them and extinguish the faith they held so faithfully. Saul persecuted the church, dragging off "men and women and committed them to prison" (Acts 8:3b). But God had greater plans—much greater—for this strident Pharisee. God was going to make him an apostle to the Gentiles, so God's Word could go forth to all the world.

God transformed Paul's life, and Paul used whatever talents he already had in the service of God and others. Glorifying God and spreading the Good News of Jesus Christ, Paul understood—by the grace of God—the newfound purpose and direction of his life.

If God can do these kinds of wondrous works in the lives of others, why can't He do them in yours?

The answer: He can.

THE PRAYER: Heavenly Father, it's easy to see the larger-than-life figures of the Bible and forget that You can do these and even greater things in our lives through Your Son Jesus. Help us understand Your will for our lives. In Jesus' Name. Amen.

Reflection Questions:
  • Do you feel like your life has a purpose?
  • If God knows us in the womb before we're born, what does that say concerning His interest in the rest of our lives?
  • Does knowing that God is in tune with your life impact it in your day-to-day living?

CPTLN devocional del 11 de Octubre de 2019 - Lo que Dios puede hacer


Lo que Dios puede hacer

11 de Octubre de 2019

"Antes de que yo te formara en el vientre, te conocí. Antes de que nacieras, te santifiqué y te presenté ante las naciones como mi profeta."
Jeremías 1:5 (RVC)

Dios nos creó para que tengamos una vida con propósito y significado. En la lectura para hoy vemos que Dios creó a Jeremías para que fuera su profeta para las naciones. Nosotros también hemos sido creados para un propósito que agrada a Dios. Sin embargo, y lamentablemente, la mayoría de las personas viven y mueren sin descubrir para qué nacieron o para qué viven.

La palabra "propósito" habla de la intención original o el plan para el cual algo existe o se ha creado o hecho. Una vida sin propósito causa vacío interno, frustración, desánimo y desilusión. Un propósito nos motiva, nos da esperanza y un sentido de dirección para nuestras vidas. Nos da una respuesta a esa famosa pregunta de por qué existimos. Eclesiastés 3:1 nos dice: "Todo tiene su tiempo. Hay un momento bajo el cielo para toda actividad".

Es común que nos tropecemos y nos sigamos tropezando en la vida. Si has tomado decisiones que han obstaculizado el cumplimiento del propósito de Dios para tu vida, Él tiene un plan de rescate para restaurarte y volverte a encaminar. Quizás te sirva un repaso de algunos ejemplos en la Biblia acerca de cómo Dios rescató a otros.

Gedeón era un cobarde (ver Jueces 6-8). Era un joven sin visión, hasta que Dios le reveló su propósito y el plan para su vida por medio de un ángel. Gedeón se convirtió en un poderoso líder con la ayuda de Dios y Dios se refirió a él como un "hombre valiente y aguerrido" (Jueces 6:12b). También vemos a Moisés (ver Éxodo 3), quien fue declarado culpable de asesinato, pero terminó siendo un gran libertador. Solo Dios sabe lo que puede hacer con la vida de alguien. Como acabamos de ver, Dios puede usar a las personas más improbables para cumplir Sus propósitos. Lo mismo aplica a nosotros. Es posible que hayamos metido la pata a lo grande, pero Dios siempre está ahí para ayudarnos.

Y hablando de eso, no olvidemos a Saulo, más tarde llamado Pablo de Tarso (ver Hechos 8-9, 13). Como recordarás, él persiguió violentamente a los primeros seguidores de Jesús, intentando exterminarlos y extinguirles la fe. Saulo persiguió a la iglesia, "entraba a las casas, y arrastraba a hombres y mujeres y los llevaba a la cárcel" (Hechos 8:3b). Pero Dios tenía planes más grandes, mucho más grandes, para ese fariseo estridente. Dios lo haría apóstol de los gentiles, para que la Palabra de Dios pudiera extenderse a todo el mundo.

Dios transformó la vida de Pablo, y Pablo usó los talentos que ya tenía al servicio de Dios y de los demás. Glorificando a Dios y difundiendo las Buenas Nuevas de Jesucristo, Pablo entendió, por la gracia de Dios, el nuevo propósito y dirección de su vida.

Si Dios puede hacer este tipo maravillas en la vida de otros, ¿por qué no podría hacerlas en la tuya?

La respuesta es: él puede.

ORACIÓN: Padre Celestial, es fácil ver a las personas de la Biblia como irreales y olvidar que tú puedes hacer estas, y otras cosas aún más grandes, en nuestras vidas a través de tu Hijo Jesús. Ayúdanos a entender tu voluntad para nuestras vidas. En el nombre de Jesús. Amén.

Del estudio bíblico "No puedes escapar de ti mismo", por el reverendo Leroy Johnson

Diễn Viên Chính

Đọc: Thi Thiên 118:6-9; 21-25 | Đọc Kinh Thánh suốt năm: Ê-sai 37-38; Cô-lô-se 3

Đó là việc của Đức Giê-hô-va. Thi Thiên 118:23

Một lần nọ, tôi nghe kể về một sinh viên trong lớp giảng luận tại một viện thần học nổi tiếng. Cậu sinh viên trẻ, với sự tự tin của bản thân, đã giảng cách hùng hồn và đầy thuyết phục. Rồi anh ngồi xuống với sự hài lòng. Vị giáo sư dừng lại một lúc trước khi phản hồi. Ông nói: “Đó là một bài giảng mạnh mẽ, bố cục tốt và cảm động. Chỉ có một vấn đề duy nhất đó là đối tượng trong từng câu của bài giảng không phải là Chúa”.

Vị giáo sư đã nói lên vấn đề mà tất cả chúng ta đều có lúc mắc phải: Chúng ta nói như thể mình là diễn viên chính (nhấn mạnh đến những gì mình nói và làm) trong khi Chúa mới thực sự là đối tượng chính yếu trong cuộc đời. Chúng ta thường tuyên bố Chúa “là chủ” theo cách nào đó, nhưng lại hành động như thể mọi kết quả phụ thuộc vào chúng ta.

Kinh Thánh nhấn mạnh rằng Chúa là đối tượng chính trong cuộc đời chúng ta, là sức mạnh thật. Ngay cả những hành động đức tin cần thiết đều được thực hiện “trong danh Chúa” – trong sức mạnh của Ngài (Thi. 118:10-11). Chúa ban sự cứu rỗi, giải cứu và quan tâm đến từng nhu cầu của chúng ta. “Đó là việc của Đức Giê-hô-va” (c.23).

Vì thế, đừng cảm thấy áp lực. Bạn không cần phải buồn phiền, so sánh, làm việc cách miễn cưỡng hoặc lo lắng. Chúa tể trị mọi sự. Chúng ta chỉ cần tin cậy và đi theo sự hướng dẫn của Ngài với lòng vâng phục.
Đâu là lúc bạn dễ bị cám dỗ nhất để nghĩ rằng bạn là nhân vật chính trong cuộc đời mình? Chúa đã mời gọi bạn tôn Ngài làm chủ cuộc đời bạn như thế nào?
Lạy Chúa, con tuyên bố Ngài là chủ của cuộc đời con, nhưng đó chỉ là lời đầu môi chót lưỡi. Con cảm thấy đuối sức và không muốn tiếp tục sống như thế. Xin giúp con tin cậy nơi Ngài.
