LA LENGUA ES UNA PODEROSA ARMA ESPIRITUAL (Spanish)

28 DE MAYO DE 2022 / DÍA 6#

EL RHEMA DE HOY

1 Corintios 12:10 a otro la obra de milagros, a otra profecía, a otro discernimiento de espíritus, a otro diferentes tipos de lenguas, a otro la interpretación de lenguas.

Una mujer que servía en un restaurante de pollo frito y llegaba tarde al trabajo tenía que caminar sola por una calle desierta. El autobús público que pasaba por su casa había pasado hace más de una hora. Debido a que llegó tarde, su jefe le dio cinco piezas de pollo frito para llevar a casa. Comenzó a hablar en lenguas y le rogó a Dios que la llevara a salvo a casa. De repente un hombre corpulento con un dibujo El cuchillo salta de las sombras oscuras, la empuja a un callejón oscuro y habla en lenguaje soez, obligándola a seguirlo.

Para superar su miedo, comenzó a orar en lenguas. De repente, esta mujer escuchó una voz: “¡Cómete tu pollo!” Ella se preguntó: “¿Qué? ¿Me ha dejado el sentido común?” La voz volvió a sonar, “¡Come tu pollo!” Entonces la mujer rasgó el envoltorio del pollo frito y lo tomó. Y qué ¿Sucedió? Había un bote de basura y dos perros grandes rebuscaban en la basura. Los dos perros levantaron la cabeza ante el olor a comida deliciosa en el aire, gruñendo y mostrando sus dientes, acercándose a la mujer y al hombre con un cuchillo. Al ver al perro que estaba listo para saltar, el hombre se asustó y se escapó. Al arrojar el pollo frito pieza por pieza, la mujer se salvó en su camino a casa.

Las lenguas son un arma muy poderosa que Dios nos ha dado. Al hablar en lenguas, la obra del Espíritu Santo se hace más evidente y recibimos instrucciones milagrosas que traen milagros en nuestras vidas. Es por eso que pide que tu vida sea llena del Espíritu Santo y hable en lenguas para que seamos más poderosos y podamos ganar cada lucha en nuestras vidas. (JB)

REFLEXIÓN

Las lenguas NO son solo un regalo de cortesía, sino que las lenguas son un arma muy PODEROSA.

APLICACIONES

1. ¿Has recibido el don de lenguas?
2. Si es así, ¿qué beneficios has sentido al hablar en lenguas hasta ahora?
3. ¿Qué compromiso tomarás para que al hablar en lenguas tu vida pueda ser más victoriosa y una bendición?

LA ORACIÓN DE HOY

“Oh buen Padre, gracias por darnos todo el equipo que necesitamos para experimentar una vida llena de victoria. Queremos continuar usando lenguas en nuestros tiempos de oración para que nuestra gente espiritual continúe siendo construida para ser más fuerte en Ti. Creemos que Tú revelarás cosas milagrosas en nuestras vidas. En el nombre de Jesucristo, oremos. Amén”.

SU RESURRECCIÓN TRAE EL MILAGRO DEL CAMBIO (Spanish)

ABRIL 19, 2022 | DÍA 2#

EL RHEMA DE HOY

2 Corintios 8:9 Porque vosotros conocéis la gracia de nuestro Señor Jesucristo, que aunque Él era rico, por vosotros se hizo pobre, para que vosotros por medio de Su pobreza os hagáis ricos.

Como personas que han conocido y creído en Dios, nuestras vidas de ninguna manera se salvan de la tormenta. Ya sea una enfermedad crónica, problemas de relación, perder un trabajo, ser abandonado por un ser querido o un sueño que se ha extinguido. A veces, cada problema nos pone muy deprimidos y nuestra situación es como si estuviéramos entre los muertos. Es posible que hayamos tomado varios esfuerzos, pero todos los caminos parecen haber sido cerrados y no hay nada más que podamos hacer.

Sin embargo, no te desanimes. El rhema de hoy nos recuerda que ya no necesitamos sentirnos rodeados de muertos porque el Dios que adoramos ha resucitado y es victorioso sobre todas las cosas. Porque Dios está listo para hacer milagros de cambio a través de esta Pascua. De los muchos milagros que Jesús ha realizado durante Su ministerio en la tierra, Su resurrección de entre los muertos es el mayor milagro de cambio en la historia de la humanidad. El poder de la resurrección de Cristo siempre está obrando dondequiera, cuando sea y sea cual sea el problema que enfrentemos. El milagro del cambio puede reavivar nuestros espíritus, reavivar la esperanza de lo que pensábamos que era imposible y resucitar todo lo que había muerto en nuestras vidas. Por lo tanto, si en este momento algunos de nosotros sentimos que algunos aspectos de nuestras vidas están empezando a morir, tal vez nuestras finanzas, trabajo, familia, salud e incluso ministerio, creemos que esta Pascua traerá un milagro de cambio permanente. Mantén tus ojos en Jesús y espera sólo en Él. Cuando creemos y tenemos fe en que un milagro de cambio definitivamente sucederá en nuestras vidas, entonces veremos cómo Dios obra de una manera extraordinaria en nuestras vidas. (JB)

REFLEXIÓN

Dios está listo para obrar EL MILAGRO DEL CAMBIO en esta TEMPORADA DE PASCUA.

APLICACIONES

1. ¿Has experimentado el milagro de un cambio permanente hasta ahora?
2. ¿Qué tipo de milagro de cambio esperas que suceda en tu vida?
3. ¿Qué harás para experimentar el milagro de un cambio permanente?

LA ORACIÓN DE HOY

“Oh buen Padre, gracias por cada milagro de cambio permanente que nos has provisto. A través de la Pascua de este año, recibamos este milagro de cambio. Para que nuestras vidas se conviertan en testigos y glorifiquen aún más Tu nombre. En el nombre de Jesucristo, oremos. Amén”.

THE SECRET OF WORSHIPPERS WHO IS LOVED BY GOD (English)

APRIL 8, 2022 | DAY 5#

TODAY’S RHEMA

John 12:3 Then Mary took a pound of very costly oil of spikenard, anointed the feet of Jesus, and wiped His feet with her hair. And the house was filled with the fragrance of the oil.

Six days before Easter, Jesus was in Bethany, the city where Lazarus lived. There was a banquet there. Come, Mary, sister of Lazarus, draw near to Jesus. She took half a catty of oil to anoint the Lord Jesus. Not just any oil, Maria uses nard oil. Nard or spikenard is a fragrant oil made from the roots of muskroot or spikenard, and to maintain its fragrance, the oil must be stored in alabaster jars. So that the price of pure nard oil is very expensive, which is around three hundred dinars. Equivalent to income for a full year.

Suddenly, everyone presents at the banquet was surprised by the fragrance that filled the room. How could it not be, the oil of nard which was so expensive was simply broken for Jesus and used to anoint His feet. However, Mary didn’t care what other people said. For Mary, the only way to prove that she loves Jesus is to give Him the best oil. Mary still bowed down and worshiped and anointed the feet of Jesus and wiped them with her hair.

When we come to God, actually God already knows what is in our hearts and minds. God knows whether we are serious about giving praise and worship to Him or not. Therefore, do not pretend to worship God, but come to God with our sincerity in heart. Worship God with love for Him. When we can worship with a heart that loves God, He will not be able to resist expressing His love for us. That is one of the secrets of true worship. Not only will God love us, but also miraculous worship will occur in our lives. (JB)

REFLECTION

Worshiping from a HEART that LOVES GOD is the secret to being a worshiper who is LOVED BY GOD.

APPLICATIONS

1. Have you become a worshiper who loves God? If so or not, why?
2. What are the things that prevent you from worshiping from a heart that loves God?
3. How can you become a worshiper who worships from a heart that loves God?

TODAY’S PRAYER

“Jesus Christ our LORD, we want to be Your worshipers who worship with all our hearts, with hearts that love You. We long to please You, so that Your favor may come in our lives. In the name of Jesus Christ, we pray. Amen.”

TODAY’S RHEMA

Psalms 90:5-6 You carry them away like a flood; They are like a sleep. In the morning they are like grass which grows up: In the morning it flourishes and grows up; In the evening it is cut down and withers.

One time as Winnie was driving, she saw a house with stairs leading up to a tiny room at the front. Winnie immediately remembered when she was a teenager, she would really like a room with its access like that. Even now, she still likes it, but her knees start to hurt when she climbs the stairs. She was surprised to see how fast time had passed.

Along the way, Winnie remembered what she had been through so far. The realization that the time she had gone through could not be repeated, made her regret many things. But Winnie knew she couldn’t get lost in her feelings. She would now pay attention to how she lived, for what she could do now would soon pass. Unknowingly, she will arrive at a time when she can no longer travel alone as she pleases. Her physical strength will inevitably continue to decline with age. Now while her body is still strong, Winnie is determined to do the best in her life.

As it was only yesterday that we celebrated the new year of 2022 and now that we are almost into the fourth month, we may feel the days are running fast. Human life is very short, fleeting if you may say. When we realize it, we will no longer be wasting time with meaningless things. Disputes, grudges, gossip, envy, pursuit of worldly pleasures, all of which are not only useless nor do they please God. Our lives will not be more meaningful because of it. On the other hand, if we use every second of our time to do our best, then our lives will have meaning. Both in the eyes of God and also in the eyes of others. (JB)

REFLECTION

Realize that human LIFE in this world is so SHORT.

APPLICATIONS

1. What makes you realize that human life in this world is so short?
2. In your opinion, if until now God is still taking care of your life, what would God want you to do?
3. What is the best action you can and will take in your life from now on?

TODAY’S PRAYER

“Jesus Christ our LORD, thank You for reminding us that our time on earth is very short. Help us LORD, to be able to find Your will for our lives and do our best to get it done. In the name of Jesus Christ we pray. Amen.”

RHEMA HARI INI
Yesaya 43:4 Oleh karena engkau berharga di mata-Ku dan mulia, dan Aku ini mengasihi engkau, maka Aku memberikan manusia sebagai gantimu, dan bangsa-bangsa sebagai ganti nyawamu.

Bagi sebagian besar orang, tanah adalah sesuatu yang tidak menarik, tidak bergerak, dan seolah hanya benda mati yang kotor dan tidak berguna. Banyak orangtua yang akan memarahi anaknya jika mereka bermain dengan tanah. Namun, pernahkah kita berpikir tentang rumput yang tiba-tiba saja muncul di halaman kita ataupun tanaman yang tumbuh di tempat gersang? Meski tanah terlihat begitu biasa dan tidak pernah mendapat perhatian lebih dari kita, tetapi tanah sebenarnya menyimpan potensi yang sangat luar biasa, yaitu menumbuhkan segala macam tanaman (Kej. 1:12).

Seorang motivator berkata, “Salah satu tragedi besar dalam hidup seseorang adalah ketika ia tidak bisa melihat potensi yang ada di dalam dirinya.” Sesuatu yang sudah di depan mata, menjadi tidak bermanfaat karena ketidaktahuan atau ketidakmampuan kita untuk melihatnya. Kegagalan, penolakan, perasaan tidak berdaya dan tidak dicintai, dapat membuat seseorang merasa hidupnya sangat tidak berguna serta tidak ada harganya sama sekali. Tidak mengherankan jika banyak orang yang tidak menjadi seperti yang seharusnya ia bisa menjadi.

Ketahuilah bahwa demi untuk menyelamatkan kita, Tuhan Yesus, Raja di atas segala raja, telah menebus kita dengan darah yang sangat mahal, bahkan dengan nyawa-Nya sendiri. Semua itu karena Dia begitu mengasihi kita dan melihat betapa berharga dan mulianya hidup kita. Saat kita menyadarinya, maka kita akan bisa melihat diri kita sebagai pribadi yang berharga dan penuh dengan potensi luar biasa. Yang ketika kita gali, kita akan menemukan rahasia kelimpahan, sehingga hidup kita akan sukses dan berbuah lebat. (PF)

RENUNGAN
Tuhan melihat kita BERHARGA dan MULIA di mata-Nya.

APLIKASI
1. Seperti apakah Anda memandang diri Anda saat ini?
2. Apakah yang membuat Anda merasa demikian?
3. Apa pengaruhnya dalam kehidupan Anda setelah mengetahui bahwa Tuhan sangat mengasihi Anda dan melihat Anda sebagai pribadi yang berharga dan mulia?

DOA UNTUK HARI INI
“Tuhan Yesus, berilah kami urapan untuk dapat melihat diri kami yang sebenarnya. Supaya kami dapat melihat betapa luar biasanya potensi yang telah Kau anugerahkan pada kami. Kami rindu hidup kami menghasilkan buah-buah yang berkenan, menyenangkan, dan memuliakan nama-Mu.
Di dalam nama Tuhan Yesus, kami berdoa. Amin.”

True Source of Strength (Morning)

TODAY’S RHEMA

Psalms 46:2 Therefore we will not fear, Even though the earth be removed, And though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea;

Nowadays, electricity could be considered as much important as housing, clothing, or food. Without it, our work progress would be impossible. It reaches deep into our lives. In Indonesia, the average voltage is around 900 to 1.300 VA just for household use. If you use it above the threshold, there’s a big chance it would be shut down immediately. For bigger use, such as industrial use, events or anything else government allowance is starting from 20 kVA, to make sure everything runs smoothly.

Then, what does it do to our lives as Christians? We face numerous challenges and hardships at all times. To make us prevailed we must get stronger. We are not facing harsh punishment or persecution just like the early church was, but our challenges are far more subtle. Many of our brothers and sisters lost their faith, no more love, and hope, it makes us weak. To add some, the Covid-19 pandemic and recession divert our focus. We need more strength and power.

To become stronger, our source must be secure. If you use your might to face this world’s challenge, it would not be enough. You could be easily defeated and dominated because your strength is limited. But He gives us hope, gives us strength. His might is unlimited and His power knows no boundaries. With each challenge and hardship, we encounter He enables us to prevail and emerge stronger than before.

REFLECTION

If you want to be REALLY STRONG, you must seek it and receive it from the TRUE STRONGEST SOURCE.

APPLICATIONS

1. What challenges do you face recently?
2. How much power do you need?
3. What will you do to be really strong and what are your plans for receiving it?

TODAY’S PRAYER

“Jesus Christ our LORD, we truly understand our weaknesses. We would never be able to walk on our own. Therefore, we need You, we need Your strength. Be our strength, because we know that You are our true source of power and might, which enables us to be solid, unyielding, and strong till the end. In the name of Jesus Christ, we pray. Amen.”

If God Is for Us, Then Who Will Be Against Us? (Morning)

TODAY’S RHEMA

Isaiah 32:15 Until the Spirit is poured upon us from on high, And the wilderness becomes a fruitful field, And the fruitful field is counted as a forest.

Joseph’s story is always a good example of how a Christian should be. How he, once his father’s beloved son, was sold into slavery and then raised only to be sent to prison because of wrong accusation and his faith and strong moral compass. Even though he can climb his rank and was unofficially the warden’s right-hand man, he still nonetheless, a prisoner. His life was in limbo. But he still faithful to his God and because of this God blessed him and made him a blessing to nations. From prisoner to Egypt vizier, his life was changed in one night.

How many of us, right now feel in a limbo? You barely could make ends meet, yet still struggle with your jobs, relationship, finances, or health. No matter hard you try no visible breakthrough in your life. No life, just like a barren land, desert. Desperation surrounds you. But today’s God gives us Joseph for us to take the example of and study. He always has Joseph’s back and never lets his knee touched the ground. He raised him high, just like dawn after the darkest hour. He proved Himself once to Joseph and in these recent days, He will once again prove His power and might.

Right now, stand up! Rise and shine! Strengthen your arms and legs. Go to the upper room, and seek His counsel. Listen to His whispers. Make sure His will is aligned with yours. If you managed to do that, you’ll see how His mighty hand will send help. He will turn desert into the green forest, barren land into a field, filled with fruit and produces and ready to be reaped.

REFLECTION

He could turn WILDERNESS into FRUITFUL FIELD, by SENDING HIS SPIRIT.

APPLICATIONS

1. What is your “desert” in life?
2. Do you believe that He will turn your desert into the forest?
3. Then what will you do to ease His works and turn your life to be fruitful?

TODAY’S PRAYER

“Holy Spirit, we are grateful for Your faithfulness. You never abandon us and always assist us in our endeavors. We believe if You is for us, who will be against us? We want to be fruitful in You and glorify Your name. In the name of Jesus Christ, we pray. Amen.”

Attached to the Right Source of Wisdom (Morning)

TODAY’S RHEMA

Psalms 111:10 The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom; A good understanding have all those who do His commandments. His praise endures forever.

Do you know Aladdin? An animated movie created by Disney about a street urchin who found a magic lamp. Aladdin has three wishes and he used them wisely. Now then, if you find a magic lamp and be granted one wish, what do you want? King Solomon was given the same situation before. Instead, he didn’t receive a magical lamp, God Himself appeared in his dream. God said He will grant Solomon’s wish, anything. Solomon could ask for wealth without limit, longevity, status higher than the emperor, or unlimited worldly pleasure. But he chose wisely: wisdom and understanding for all things under the sky.

Through wisdom, Solomon could decide important matters. One famous story is about two women and a baby. He could reach a decision no mortal men could ever think before or after. Wisdom enables him to separate right from wrong. By choosing wisdom, he accumulated wealth beyond measure, many kings came to him and asked for his counsel and his name, his legacy was immortalized.

In this life, we cannot achieve everything with our might and power. We all have our limitations. But when we ask for divine wisdom and God gives it to us we could see things from another perspective and take another route that will lead us to success. When we have divine wisdom, our understanding will be renewed, and could think our next step thoroughly. Because He is the true source of wisdom rely upon Him to decide matter beyond your current understanding and see how significant your growth is and how great He fulfilled His end of the covenant.

REFLECTION

When we rely on Him as our true SOURCE OF WISDOM, He will make us bear fruit more.

APPLICATIONS

1. Have you relied upon Him as your source of wisdom?
2. When you attach yourself to God, you’ll bear more fruit, why? Can you explain?
3. What are your concrete commitments to rely upon Him more?

TODAY’S PRAYER

“O good Father, we want to rely upon You more than before. We know only within You we will find glory and victory. You are the true source of wisdom that will enable us to bear more fruit. In the name of Jesus Christ, we pray. Amen.”

The Key to Being Fruitful (Morning)

TODAY’S RHEMA

2 Chronicles 16:9 “For the eyes of the LORD run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show Himself strong on behalf of those whose heart is loyal to Him.

Bella is a devout Christian. She is her uncle’s favorite and she loves her uncle. But she wants her uncle to convert because he is a non-believer. Bella firmly believes God will do the rest. A week before her birthday she asks her uncle a wish: to attend Sunday service with her. Her uncle relents and for a whole week, she prays and fasts. When finally they attend the service, she is disappointed. Instead of a young vigorous pastor, her church was visited by an elderly one. That elderly pastor’s sermon is boring and almost puts her to sleep.

Along their way back home, her uncle just drives silently. Inside, Bella is angry, why did God answer her prayers with that pastor? After calming her nerves down, she surrenders all in His hand. Almost an uneventful week passed by, and her uncle suddenly asks her if he can attend the service once again. She is overjoyed and surprised. After a few months, her uncle asks to be baptized. While driving back home, he tells her a secret. When she first asked him to attend the church, he was surprised to see how old the pastor is. This almost dying pastor gave him a new insight into his life. What would he go if after he dies? What would happen? Bella just nodded but at heart, she thanked the old pastor and gives praises to God. She understands now why God chooses the old pastor.

There are things in this world that we cannot predict. We cannot control things the way we want them to do. After a thorough examination, analysis, and execution there are still flaws. Our point is, depending upon this world is a useless, futile attempt. By doing so we only increase our disappointments and improve our chance of failure. There is no superior intelligence, connection, capital, or status that can save us from dissatisfaction, but how well our relationship with God is.

REFLECTION

External factors have nothing to do with BECOMING FRUITFUL, but it’s about RELYING ON HIM always.

APPLICATIONS

1. Are there things in this material world that you always depend on?
2. If you rethink that right now, do you feel that those things make you more fruitful and productive?
3. Then what does happen if you truly depend on Him instead of those in this material world?

TODAY’S PRAYER

“Jesus Christ our LORD, forgive us if we still depending on this world instead of You. Right now we understand that nothing can guarantee our success besides You. You are our sole supporter in life, the one we always believe in and put our hope in. In the name of Jesus Christ, we pray. Amen.”

Appreciate Your Family Time Wiselyty (Morning)

TODAY’S RHEMA

Luke 12:35 “Let your waist be girded and your lamps burning;

As a housewife, Hanna is not customed to her recent life. Usually, she started her day by buying groceries in a nearby market, cooked breakfast for her husband and children, then working. In the evening, after work, she cooked for dinner, accompanied her children doing their homework. On Friday she attended her cell group and doing her part in church’s services. But recently, she is stressed. She had nothing to do, she felt worthless.

For the last week, her youngest children got ill. For a week she must take her to leave and take care of her youngest. When she sat there, feeling burdened, God spoke to her: your family is as important as your work, if not more. She felt cold water touched her skin and suddenly be awakened. Even though she always spenT her time with her family how many times she SPENT her quality time with them? At that moment, she realized, how important it is, in this complete silence of her children’s bedroom, her togetherness with her children. She knew after all this year, her children would be all grownups they will have their own life, with their loved ones and their children. This time she had then, would be priceless.

Sometimes our businesses and jobs separate us from what matters the most. Our businesses make us forget the value of “present”. Because what we show today, is what we will reap tomorrow. If you are busy building your business empire, how you would maintain your family? Is it matter with all the wealth you possess if your family is in ruin? The essence of living in God and righteousness is love and doing it “now” truly makes a difference. If your works and businesses overwhelm you to a point where you forget the feeling of togetherness with your family, stop right now! Your family is the only one who matters. He gave you your family as the most treasured thing you could ever possess in this life and later.

REFLECTION

OUR WAY to SPEND TIME tells others how wise we appreciate it.

APPLICATIONS

1. Did you spend your time wisely? If not, why?
2. In your opinion, what is the correct and wise strategy to spend your time?
3. What are your commitments to spend your time wisely after reading today’s rhema? Share it with your cell group

TODAY’S PRAYER

“Good Father, forgive us if in the past we still waste our time with insignificant matters. Teach us to appreciate it and use it with more wisdom. Because we know, every second is counted for us among others, especially with our family and loved ones. Let our time in this temporary world be useful to others especially for Your cause. In the name of Jesus Christ, we pray. Amen.”
