---Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. 
Words spoken by the Apostle Paul to the Philippians, which continue to be full of wisdom, true, and still active for the Body of Christ today.  Our mind is the battleground where the Devil comes against us. Here is where he brings thoughts contrary to the Word of God. Thoughts, which later drive us to speak against what God says about us. 
In this New Year we must dedicate, consecrate, consult, and put the Lord first in everything. Give thanks for the gift of life and eternal life that we can have in Him. That all the things we have as health, family, work, friendships even the smallest things are results that our Father loves us and that we are important to Him. The word says in Proverbs 16: 3: "Commit your plans to the Lord and your thoughts and works will be affirmed." Other versions say: "Put your acts in the hands of the Lord and your plans will be realized".  This tells us that we must take it into account.
Clearly the Word tells us in Proverbs 3: 5-8.

When we are depressed, it seems that everything around us collapses. We lose strength; our heads, hands and hearts begin to lower. Even our eyes and our voices are low. We become weary because we are looking at our problems instead of the Lord.
Whatever it is that causes us to despair, the Lord encourages us with his Word to raise our heads and our hands and look at Him. We find one of those many examples in Genesis 13:14, when God tells Abraham, when he had been defrauded by his nephew Lot, to "lift" his eyes and looked around him in all directions, because he would give him as his inheritance all the lands as far as his gaze could reach. In Psalm 24: 7, the psalmist says: "Lift up, doors,…

What God says about Borders and Boundaries?

For the most part, Christians have asked me questions about what is happening on the border between Mexico and the United States; my perspective is this. We, as believers and Christians must see what the Word of God says, not what secular media or people with certain ideas think. In social networks it is very common for people to give their opinions - and - everyone has an opinion, but we must base ourselves on what the Word of God says. For this reason I clarify that this message is for Word of Faith Ministries’ Faith Partners; for people who connect with us and already know that we are a teaching Ministry. This is not for outsiders to comment on or share their opinion upon. If you disagree, then this message is simply not for you. This message is exclusively for the people, Partners of our Ministry, who are Christian believers, who believe in the Word of God and the Bible. If you do not believe in the Bible then this is not for you. Don’t waste your time writing comments expressing…
