After the prayer, action. By Pastor Osvaldo Ripoll.

Translated from Spanish to English with Google translator.

In previous writings we have discussed the Kingdom of God, and how to access the benefits and obligations of being a citizen of Heaven. In these pages we will try to explain the way in which we should behave in life, examples as true Christians.

The apostle Paul in his second letter to the Thessalonians gives a clear indication of what the order for the followers of Christ. We speak effectively, we should expect that God absolutely all things, but as well it is written, we should not be a burden to anyone, but instead we must earn our bread by the sweat of his brow and He will bless us in abundance, such which deals Deuteronomy chapter 28 verse 1 to 15. But better move on to the word written by the inspired apostle of Jesus Christ by the Holy Spirit.

6 Now we command you, brethren, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye withdraw yourselves from every brother that walketh disorderly, and not after the tradition which he received of us. 7 For you yourselves know how you ought to imitate us, because we were not disorderly among you, 8 nor did we eat anyone's bread, but wrought with labor and travail night and day, to not be chargeable to any of you: 9 not because we have not power, but to make ourselves an example to imitate us. 10 For even when we were with you, we commanded you this: If anyone will not work, neither should he eat. 11 For we hear that some among you walk disorderly, working not at all, but are busybodies. 12 Such people we command and exhort by our Lord Jesus Christ, that with quietness they work, and eat their own bread.
2 Thessalonians 3 Version King James 1960

Dear brothers, this should apply not only to work but also to the call that the Lord has given to each one, for example if the ministry God called you, what are you waiting for to prepare and study? If the King of Kings, I command you to raise a family, acts accordingly and start being responsible to God first and then to your loved ones.

This sit praying and so that "GOD DO THINGS", has nothing to do with the true apostolic doctrine and less to the doctrine of Christ. Jesus taught us to cry and get going for the Almighty God manifest in us and bless us in every area of ​​our lives. Enough Waiting magical solutions which hypocritically disguise of "miracles" and if the Lord "does not meet" fled from his congregation with an excuse to believe true.

Let us now see how the Prince of Peace bless manifests when we set off.
Able to work, exercise the ministry, support our families and all kinds of activities that bear fruit, we must see it for what it is "Gift of God, this means that the Lord gives us health and wisdom to carry these things forward and give fruit in abundance. Without forgetting to enjoy the royalties, but knowing who is the Glory. Let's enjoy the wisdom of the Book of Ecclesiastes or Preacher in chapter five.

Also, every man to whom God gives riches and wealth, and hath given him power to eat thereof, and to take his portion, and to rejoice in his work, this is the gift of God. 
Ecclesiastes 5:19 King James Version 1960

These words encourage us to develop our daily activities with great joy and thanksgiving to the Almighty for such a great gift and the chance to enjoy it with ours. In the book of Psalms, this word is also revealed by God through the Psalmist, we read:

When you eat the labor of thine hands: happy shalt thou be, and you'll be fine.
Psalm 128:2 King James Version 1960

We develop our work and they behave in an irreproachable manner, during those hours devoting our full attention to the activity to which we play and praying for wisdom from God to do it the best way. Obviously The Lord supports this through their word, see:

 Seest thou a man diligent in his business? before kings;
shall not stand before mean men.
Proverbs 22:29 King James Version 1960

If you are asking something of God's time to get up and walk after what He put in your heart, it is time not to be overcome by depression or comfort and deal with the circumstances knowing who is our Father. That Abba Father who loves us so that with only our faith in the sacrifice of his son gives us eternal life and the chance to talk with him and spend hours in his arms.

Always remember this, Joshua had the promise of God that would conquer the Promised Land, needed to pray and get moving, enjoyed many victories and learned from some defeats, but marched ever onward by the hand of our Creator. It's your time to not give up.

God bless you
Pastor Osvaldo Ripoll
