"The Spirit of the Sovereign LORD is on me, because the LORD has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners, to proclaim the year of the LORD's favor and the day of vengeance of our God, to comfort all who mourn, and provide for those who grieve in Zion — to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair." ~ from ISAIAH 61 Bible verse for this Blog

Psalm 18

For the director of music. Of David the servant of the LORD.
He sang to the LORD the words of this song
when the LORD delivered him from the hand of all his enemies
and from the hand of Saul.

LAST WEEK-April 11th,2008

He said:
1 I love you, O LORD, my strength.
2 The LORD is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer;
my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge.
He is my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.
3 I call to the LORD, who is worthy of praise,
and I am saved from my enemies.
4 The cords of death entangled me;
the torrents of destruction overwhelmed me.
5 The cords of the grave coiled around me;
the snares of death confronted me.
6 In my distress I called to the LORD;
I cried to my God for help.
From his temple he heard my voice;
my cry came before him, into his ears.

THIS WEEK:April 18th, 2008

7 The earth trembled and quaked,
and the foundations of the mountains shook;
they trembled because he was angry.
8 Smoke rose from his nostrils;
consuming fire came from his mouth,
burning coals blazed out of it.
9 He parted the heavens and came down;
dark clouds were under his feet.
10 He mounted the cherubim and flew;
he soared on the wings of the wind.
11 He made darkness his covering, his canopy around him—
the dark rain clouds of the sky.
12 Out of the brightness of his presence clouds advanced,
with hailstones and bolts of lightning.
13 The LORD thundered from heaven;
the voice of the Most High resounded.
14 He shot his arrows and scattered the enemies ,
great bolts of lightning and routed them.
15 The valleys of the sea were exposed
and the foundations of the earth laid bare
at your rebuke, O LORD,
at the blast of breath from your nostrils.
16 He reached down from on high and took hold of me;
he drew me out of deep waters.
17 He rescued me from my powerful enemy,
from my foes, who were too strong for me.
18 They confronted me in the day of my disaster,
but the LORD was my support.
19 He brought me out into a spacious place;
he rescued me because he delighted in me.

20 The LORD has dealt with me according to my righteousness;
according to the cleanness of my hands he has rewarded me.
21 For I have kept the ways of the LORD;
I have not done evil by turning from my God.
22 All his laws are before me;
I have not turned away from his decrees.
23 I have been blameless before him
and have kept myself from sin.
24 The LORD has rewarded me according to my righteousness,
according to the cleanness of my hands in his sight.
25 To the faithful you show yourself faithful,
to the blameless you show yourself blameless,
26 to the pure you show yourself pure,
but to the crooked you show yourself shrewd.
27 You save the humble
but bring low those whose eyes are haughty.
28 You, O LORD, keep my lamp burning;
my God turns my darkness into light.
29 With your help I can advance against a troop
with my God I can scale a wall.
30 As for God, his way is perfect;
the word of the LORD is flawless.
He is a shield
for all who take refuge in him.
31 For who is God besides the LORD ?
And who is the Rock except our God?
32 It is God who arms me with strength
and makes my way perfect.
33 He makes my feet like the feet of a deer;
he enables me to stand on the heights.
34 He trains my hands for battle;
my arms can bend a bow of bronze.
35 You give me your shield of victory,
and your right hand sustains me;
you stoop down to make me great.
36 You broaden the path beneath me,
so that my ankles do not turn.
37 I pursued my enemies and overtook them;
I did not turn back till they were destroyed.
38 I crushed them so that they could not rise;
they fell beneath my feet.
39 You armed me with strength for battle;
you made my adversaries bow at my feet.
40 You made my enemies turn their backs in flight,
and I destroyed my foes.
41 They cried for help, but there was no one to save them—
to the LORD, but he did not answer.
42 I beat them as fine as dust borne on the wind;
I poured them out like mud in the streets.
43 You have delivered me from the attacks of the people;
you have made me the head of nations;
people I did not know are subject to me.
44 As soon as they hear me, they obey me;
foreigners cringe before me.
45 They all lose heart;
they come trembling from their strongholds.
46 The LORD lives! Praise be to my Rock!
Exalted be God my Savior!
47 He is the God who avenges me,
who subdues nations under me,
48 who saves me from my enemies.
You exalted me above my foes;
from violent men you rescued me.
49 Therefore I will praise you among the nations, O LORD;
I will sing praises to your name.
50 He gives his king great victories;
he shows unfailing kindness to his anointed,
to David and his descendants forever.

SPANISH VERSION (NVI)
Salmos 18 (Nueva Versión Internacional)






Salmos 18

2S 22:1-51 Al director musical. De David, siervo del Señor.
David dedicó al Señor la letra de esta canción cuando el Señor lo libró de Saúl
y de todos sus enemigos.
Dijo así:
1 ¡Cuánto te amo, Señor, fuerza mía!
2 El Señor es mi *roca, mi amparo, mi libertador;
es mi Dios, el peñasco en que me refugio.
Es mi escudo, el poder que me salva,¡mi más alto escondite!
3 Invoco al Señor, que es digno de alabanza,
y quedo a salvo de mis enemigos.
4 Los lazos de la muerte me envolvieron;
los torrentes destructores me abrumaron.
5 Me enredaron los lazos del *sepulcro,
y me encontré ante las trampas de la muerte.
6 En mi angustia invoqué al Señor;
clamé a mi Dios,
y él me escuchó desde su templo;
¡mi clamor llegó a sus oídos!

7 La tierra tembló, se estremeció;
se sacudieron los cimientos de los montes;
¡retemblaron a causa de su enojo!
8 Por la nariz echaba humo,
por la boca, fuego consumidor;
¡lanzaba carbones encendidos!
9 Rasgando el cielo, descendió,
pisando sobre oscuros nubarrones.
10 Montando sobre un *querubín, surcó los cielos
y se remontó sobre las alas del viento.
11 Hizo de las tinieblas su escondite,
de los oscuros y cargados nubarrones
un pabellón que lo rodeaba.
12 De su radiante presencia brotaron nubes,
granizos y carbones encendidos.
13 En el cielo, entre granizos y carbones encendidos,
se oyó el trueno del Señor,
resonó la voz del *Altísimo.
14 Lanzó sus flechas, sus grandes centellas;
dispersó a mis enemigos y los puso en fuga.
15 A causa de tu reprensión, oh Señor,
y por el resoplido de tu enojo
las cuencas del mar quedaron a la vista;
¡al descubierto quedaron los cimientos de la tierra!
16 Extendiendo su mano desde lo alto,
tomó la mía y me sacó del mar profundo.
17 Me libró de mi enemigo poderoso,
de aquellos que me odiaban
y eran más fuertes que yo.
18 En el día de mi desgracia me salieron al encuentro,
pero mi apoyo fue el Señor.
19 Me sacó a un amplio espacio;
me libró porque se agradó de mí.

20 El Señor me ha pagado conforme a mi *justicia;
me ha premiado conforme a la limpieza de mis manos,
21 pues he andado en los *caminos del Señor;
no he cometido mal alguno
ni me he apartado de mi Dios.
22 Presentes tengo todas sus sentencias;
no me he alejado de sus decretos.
23 He sido íntegro con él
y me he abstenido de pecar.
24 El Señor me ha recompensado conforme a mi justicia,
conforme a la limpieza de mis manos.
25 Tú eres fiel con quien es fiel,
e irreprochable con quien es irreprochable;
26 sincero eres con quien es sincero,
pero sagaz con el que es tramposo.
27 Tú das la *victoria a los humildes,
pero humillas a los altaneros.
28 Tú, Señor, mantienes mi lámpara encendida;
tú, Dios mío, iluminas mis tinieblas.
29 Con tu apoyo me lanzaré contra un ejército;
contigo, Dios mío, podré asaltar murallas.
30 El camino de Dios es perfecto;
la palabra del Señor es intachable.
Escudo es Dios a los que en él se refugian.
31 ¿Quién es Dios, si no el Señor?
¿Quién es la roca, si no nuestro Dios?
32 Es él quien me arma de valor
y endereza mi camino;
33 da a mis pies la ligereza del venado,
y me mantiene firme en las alturas;
34 adiestra mis manos para la batalla,
y mis brazos para tensar arcos de bronce.
35 Tú me cubres con el escudo de tu *salvación,
y con tu diestra me sostienes;
tu bondad me ha hecho prosperar.
36 Me has despejado el camino,
así que mis tobillos no flaquean.
37 Perseguí a mis enemigos, les di alcance,
y no retrocedí hasta verlos aniquilados.
38 Los aplasté. Ya no pudieron levantarse.
¡Cayeron debajo de mis pies!
39 Tú me armaste de valor para el combate;
bajo mi planta sometiste a los rebeldes.
40 Hiciste retroceder a mis enemigos,
y así exterminé a los que me odiaban.
41 Pedían ayuda; no hubo quien los salvara.
Al Señor clamaron, pero no les respondió
42 Los desmenucé. Parecían polvo disperso por el viento.
¡Los pisoteo como al lodo de las calles!
43 Me has librado de una turba amotinada;
me has puesto por encima de los *paganos;
me sirve *gente que yo no conocía.
44 Apenas me oyen, me obedecen;
son extranjeros, y me rinden homenaje.
45 ¡Esos extraños se descorazonan,
y temblando salen de sus refugios!
46 ¡El Señor vive! ¡Alabada sea mi roca!
¡Exaltado sea Dios mi Salvador!
47 Él es el Dios que me vindica,
el que pone los pueblos a mis pies.
48 Tú me libras del furor de mis enemigos,
me exaltas por encima de mis adversarios,
me salvas de los hombres violentos.
49 Por eso, Señor, te alabo entre las naciones
y canto salmos a tu *nombre.
50 El Señor da grandes victorias a su rey;
a su *ungido David y a sus descendientes
les muestra por siempre su gran amor.

Does Prayer matter?
¿LE IMPORTA LA ORACIÓN?

My Comments:
Prayer is my life focus!
If you have a call to intercession or have learned how vital pray is to keeping your relationship alive with Jesus, or how He sustains everyday, every moment, waiting for you to speak and better yet Listen to His Spirit!
The more you pray, the closer He stays!
So, when, you really need Him...
He doesn't seem so far away!






Mis comentarios:


El foco de mi vida es LA ORACIÓN; mis oraciones son muy importantes para mí diario.




¡Me sostienen!


Mantengan su relación viva con Jesucisto y cómo Él le sostiene cada día, cada momento


y está esperándole para hablarle y escucharle a Su Espíritu Santo. Quizás tengas un llamado de orar para otros en intercesión o usted ha aprendido tan importante y vital es la comunicación con Dios para su vida diaria. ¡Gloria a Dios!




Jaci Velasquez sings "On MY Knees" Listen to it as you go to Him in PRAYER. 
La CANCION es de Jaci Velasquez "En Mis Rodillas"








Spend time alone with God, read His Word, Hear His Voice through what He says in His Word, Pray and claim Bibles verses in prayer...take the Bible passage and personalize it. Put your name in it or whomever you're praying for...say it as God says it and sees it! Look at David!
Psalms are the easiest to put into your own words and pray it! Of course, the "Our Father", "The Lord's Prayer" in Matthew6:9 is our BEST example and the model prayer of Jesus!
Prayer is our safe place-our place of refuge! You can go there and say it however you want!
Shout when you're angry; shout when you're full of JOY and PRAISE! Whisper when you're hurting, whisper when your sobs won't cease! Jesus hears you and you can trust He'll understand, For He has listened right there beside you in this land... For He has walked right there and felt that kind of pain... as He went to the Cross at Calvary, He opened Heaven's GAIN to Our Heavenly Father, for you and for me...just say You believe!

  1. Peggy, thank you so very much for coming over and leaving a beautiful prayerful comment. I read it several times and am still without adequate words for you. Other than thank you....it's in people such as yourself, from what I can discern from your blog and your uplifting words to me, that I see Jesus.
