The Lord of Hosts is with Us

Imagine living within a walled city that is under siege by an invading foreign army. Soldiers are walking around on all four sides of your city strategizing about an attack. They have cut off your food and water supplies. You stare at the prospect of death at worst or...

Espera Lo Inesperado

Al empezar el 2017, sentí que la palabra que Dios me había dado para el años era “alegría.” Pensé, “¡Que buen año será! ¡Alegría! ¡Esta genial!” Pero al curso del año, diez personas que estaban conectadas a nosotros fallecieron en los primeros diez meses del año....

Expect The Unexpected

At the beginning of 2017, I felt the word God gave me for the year was the word “joy”. I thought, “What a great year this is going to be! Joy! That is awesome!”  Then, ten people connected to us passed away in the first 10 months of the year.  I thought, “At this...

Be Strong And Have Courage

Recently, most Americans were shocked because a seventeen-year-old girl was strong and acted courageously. She jumped from a window in her parents’ home and used a deactivated mobile phone to call 911 and report abuse. Some of her 12 siblings were shackled to items of...

Esfuérzate y Sé Valiente

Recientemente, muchos de nosotros estuvimos en choque porque una niña de diecisiete años fuer fuerte y actuó con valentía. Saltó de una ventana en la casa de sus padres y usó un celular desactivado para llamar al 911 y reportar abuso. Algunos de sus 12 hermanos...

El Ritmo De Gracias

El propósito de este devocional es acompañar al Salmo 136. Te recomendamos tener tu Biblia abierta en el Salmo 136 mientras lees esta publicación. Recuerdo la primera vez que leí el Salmo 136 en un contexto congregacional, yo era un adolescente. El pastor invitó a que...

The Rhythm of Thanks

This devotional is meant as a companion to Psalm 136. We recommend having your Bible open on Psalm 136 as you read today's post. I remember the first time I read Psalm 136 in a congregational setting, I was a teenager. The pastor asked everybody to open their Bibles,...

All Things Work for the Good of Those Who Love God

Over the years, Kara and I have had several opportunities to lead small groups for youth and young adults.  During our times of teaching, there are several themes or questions that always seem to come up.  One of those is how do I make it through this life when things...

Run and Not Grow Weary, Walk and Not Faint

Can you recall a time when your child was in such great need that you could not console them? Maybe they were hungry, needed burping or had to go to the potty? I remember observing a mother with small children in a restaurant as they climbed over her like a jungle...

Ánimo

Juan 11:4-5 “Cuando Jesús oyó la noticia, dijo: «La enfermedad de Lázaro no acabará en muerte. Al contrario, sucedió para la gloria de Dios, a fin de que el Hijo de Dios reciba gloria como resultado». 5 Aunque Jesús amaba a Marta, a María y a Lázaro…" De toda la...

Take Heart

John 11:4-5 “Now Jesus loved Martha and her sister and Lazarus. So when he heard that Lazarus was sick, he stayed where he was two more days…” In all of the Bible I think I struggle with this verse the most. Lazarus, Jesus’ best friend, is dying. Word gets to Jesus...

Nothing Can Separate Us

I moved from Seattle to Los Angeles when I was 21 years old. I was convinced that I had the whole world figured out. Leaving behind my parents, sisters and extended family didn’t really affect my decision. I was heading out on my own. I called my parents to let them...

¿Qué Nos Separará de Su Amor?

Me mudé de Seattle a Los Ángeles cuando tenía 21 años de edad. Estaba convencido de que todo lo tenía resuelto. Dejar a mis padres, hermanas y familia extendida no afectó mi decisión. Me iba a vivir a fuera de la ciudad por mí mismo. Llamé a mis padres para avisarles...

If God is For Us, Who Can Be Against Us?

If God is For Us, Who Can Be Against Us? Romans 8:31 God is for you? Is He really? Are you sure? Paul’s answer to the Romans can help to erase fear, doubts and questions. The Message paraphrase communicates well in our present-day usage of words what God, through...

El Señor del Viento

Salmo 135 es conocido como un Salmo de Adoración, pero es mucho más. En la cultura hebrea, los judíos cantaban una específica selección de salmos en un orden específico mientras hacían su ascenso al templo para adorar en sus peregrinajes regulares. Los 15 “salmos de...

The Master of the Wind

Psalm 135 is known as a Psalm of Adoration, but it’s so more. In Hebrew culture, the Jews would sing a specific selection of psalms in a specific order as they made their ascent toward the temple to worship in their regular pilgrimages. The 15 “psalms of ascent” are...

Amazing Grace

Most of us have heard the term grace. Maybe you have heard John Newton’s song “Amazing Grace,” published in 1779. Or you may have been asked the “say grace,” at the family dinner table. Or maybe you have found yourself in someone’s “good graces.” The Greek word...

Sublime Gracia

La mayoría de nosotros hemos escuchado el termino gracia. Tal vez has escuchado la canción “Sublime Gracia” de John Newton que fue publicada en 1779. O tal vez te has encontrado “gracia” delante de alguien más. La palabra griega se traduce como “favor.” Pero, la...

No Tengas Miedo

Isaías 41:10 (NTV) 10 No tengas miedo, porque yo estoy contigo; no te desalientes, porque yo soy tu Dios. Te daré fuerzas y te ayudaré; te sostendré con mi mano derecha victoriosa. Creo que es fácil decir que todos hemos experimentado algún tipo de miedo en nuestras...

Do Not Fear

Isaiah 41:10 (NLT) 10 Don’t be afraid, for I am with you. Don’t be discouraged, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you. I will hold you up with my victorious right hand. I think it is easy to say that all of us have experienced fear of some kind in our...

Strength is for Service, Not Status

As we move into the second part of this fast, let’s recap the last 8 days, so we can have a sense of what God has been speaking to us about. On day 1, Pastor Derrill reminded us that when the day of trouble finds us, God’s presence is already there to bring us...

Fuerzas Renovadas

Cuando escucho la frase “fuerzas renovadas” el primer pensamiento que viene a mi mente es qué en muchos casos, cuando estamos necesitando de fuerzas renovadas, parece imposible obtenerlas porque el mundo no para. En otras palabras, cuando el estrés o las tribulaciones...

Renewed Strength – Pastor Shane Gore

When I hear the phrase “renewed strength” the first thing that comes to mind is that in most cases, when we are needing our strength renewed, it seems completely impossible because our world doesn’t stop.  In other words, when stress or trials come, or even exciting...

Da Nuevas Fuerzas al Desamparado

Isaías 40:31 Nueva Traducción Viviente (NTV) 31 En cambio, los que confían en el Señor encontrarán nuevas fuerzas; volarán alto, como con alas de águila. Correrán y no se cansarán; caminarán y no desmayarán. Cuando tu confianza en Dios es alterada por circunstancias,...

God Gives Strength to the Weary

Isaiah 40:31 New Living Translation (NLT) 31 But those who trust in the Lord will find new strength. They will soar high on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not faint. When your confidence in God is shaken by circumstances, the...

Grande Es Tu Fidelidad

¿Cómo procesas la fidelidad de Dios en momentos donde no ves los resultados que comprueban que Él es fiel? ¿Cómo definimos fidelidad? Ser fiel es una característica de Dios. Fidelidad no es algo que Él hace, sino quien Él es. ¿Es justo entonces definir a Dios por...

Great Is Your Faithfulness

How do we process the faithfulness of God in moments we don’t see the results that prove His faithfulness? How do we define faithful? Faithful is a character trait of God. Faithful is not something he does, rather who he is. Is it fair then to define God’s character...

Updraft: They Will Soar On Wings Like Eagles

Isaiah 40:28-31 NLT 28 Have you never heard?     Have you never understood? The LORD is the everlasting God,     the Creator of all the earth. He never grows weak or weary.     No one can measure the depths of his understanding. 29 He gives power to the weak     and...

Give Us Strength

Are you in pretty good shape? Are you pretty strong? Do you exercise regularly? I have decided that I need to get in better shape, so one day last week I went to the gym to work out. There were a lot of others there working out too. Some were running on treadmills,...

Danos Fuerza

¿Tienes buena condición física? ¿Eres fuerte? ¿Te ejercitas regularmente? Yo he decido que debo estar en mejor forma, así que la semana pasada fui un día al gimnasio a ejercitarme. Había mucha gente también ejercitándose. Algunas estaban corriendo en aparatos, algunos...

Corre Hacia El

Hay algunas memorias, que no importa la edad, nunca las podrás olvidar. Una memoria para me es de cuando yo tenia 6 años de edad. Estaba en el supermercado con mi mamá y hacia lo que cualquier niño preescolar haría, preguntando por cosas y queriéndome subir al carrito...

Run To Him – Proverbs 18:10

There are some memories, regardless of your age, that you just can’t shake. One memory for me is from when I was six years old. I was at the grocery store with my mom and doing what kindergartners do, asking for things and climbing on the cart. What I really wanted...

Dios Es Nuestro Refugio y Fortaleza

Salmo 46:1-3 NTV Dios es nuestro refugio y nuestra fuerza; siempre está dispuesto a ayudar en tiempos de dificultad. 2 Por lo tanto, no temeremos cuando vengan terremotos y las montañas se derrumben en el mar. 3 ¡Que rujan los océanos y hagan espuma! ¡Que tiemblen las...

God Is Our Refuge and Strength – Psalm 46:1-3

Psalm 46:1-3 1 God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. 2 Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea, 3 though its waters roar and foam and the mountains quake with their surging.[c]...

En El Día de Angustia

Salmo 50:15 El día de angustia, ¿que será eso para ti? ¿Será una o todas las calamidades que le llegaron a Job? ¿Será el sentido de estar solo que sobrecogió a Elias después de la gran victoria del fuego descendiendo del cielo? (1 Reyes 18 & 19). ¿Será lo...

When The Day of Trouble Finds Me

Psalm 50:15 The day of trouble, what would that be for you? Is it one or all of the calamities that came upon Job? Is it the sense of being alone (“I’m the only one left…”) that overtook Elijah following the great victory by the firebomb from heaven? (1 Kings 18 &...

I Get Prayer, But Why Fast?

Fasting is a declaration of dependence. It is the admission that while we have the capacity to feed ourselves and meet our own needs, we are desperate for something greater. Author Stovall Weems calls fasting “making space for God.” Fasting is a catalyst...

Christmas is Honest – Message in 10 Tweets

Christmas is different things to different people. Every one of us come at this season with our own ethnic and cultural approaches to Christmas. We all have our own unique and individualized nuances and traditions that make this holiday season special to us and our...
