W alking on the S ea of S truggles by: Victor Padilla There are times when you wake up and you have been hit so hard by life’s struggles that you feel like you can’t even get up. Life has become a sea of turbulent waves that has knocked you down until your frustrated, your angry, and tired. It takes everything for you to stand and keep mov- ing forward. I am going to share something with you that is going to change your life forever, something that will awaken the real you to a world that dwells around us. When the son of God Yeshua (Jesus), walked this earth, he knew the sufferings that every human being experienced, it was a weight that burden he took on himself. So heavy of a burden that he sweat blood through his pores and his tears. The greatest thing that Ye- shua (Jesus) did was to demonstrate and teach us who we really are…. God’s Children! Yes, that’s right you are God’s child! Many religious teachings say, “You were born a sinner.” We must first understand what the word means from the Hebrew translation “SIN” comes from the Hebrew word Chait”, which means “to miss, go wrong, make a mistake or an error”. God created you from his love, from his word, and you were born a Child of God. Here is the thing, your whole life you were raised with a God mentality that separated you from God the father, the creator A.K.A. your Father. Leaving you dormant and asleep in the Spirit. When Ye- shua (Jesus) chose his disciples, he chose those who were down trodden, those who suffered at life’s turmoil’s and circumstances. Why did he do this? Because he wanted those who would accept God’s love for his children and not reason with a religious mental- ity. Those who wanted to know more than what they were taught and had been forced to learn. Yeshua (Jesus) during his time on earth, defied even the very laws of nature. He wanted us to know our potential and the supernatu- ral power we have in us as God’s children. One day when his dis- ciples were in the boat, Jesus was on the shore, then a storm rose up on the sea. They became afraid, fear gripped them, and they desperately looked for Yeshua (Jesus), when suddenly, they saw someone walking on the water in the storm towards their boat. 24 L atin T imes M agazine It was Yeshua (Jesus) and when Peter Saw Yeshua (Jesus) he asked, “Lord, is it You?” and “If it is, tell me to come to you on the water.” “Come,” Jesus said. So, Peter got out of the boat. He walked on the water toward Jesus. - Matthew 14:28-29. You see Peter knew at that precise moment that he could walk on water because he moved by his faith. He started to walk on the water but when he looked down into the sea and allowed the storm to shake his very faith, well Peter began to Sink, then Yeshua (Jesus) grabbed his hand and pulled him up setting him back on the water. The Sea of struggles are below you and God wants you to walk on top of them and it is the supernatu- ral power that God created in you that changes Faith into Action! It is only by his Spirit that gives you the right to walk on the water and defy all reasoning, all laws of nature. When you’re a child of God, YOU DON’T HAVE THE RIGHT TO WORRY about any Storm! The only thing stopping you from understanding this is your God Mentality. You must change your God mentality, you must change the “YOU” mentality by waking up to who you really are. If you’re ready to change then you must completely give God control of ev- erything in your life, control of your mind, body, spirit, and soul through his son (Jesus) Yeshua Mashiach. In you God created a Supernatural Being that walks on water, overcomes Adversity, and Struggles. “NOT BY MIGHT, NOT BY POWER, BUT BY MY SPIRIT.” GOD said. “Through discovering God, you will discover who you really are, and it is then and only then you will be able to break the chains and cycle of struggles that has trapped you and left you drowning in your life. When you are awakened to who you truly are and who you are truly meant to be…” A CHILD OF THE MOST HIGH”, then will you rise above every circumstance and walk on the Sea of Struggles. Know GOD and you will know the Supernatural YOU.” www . latintimesmedia . com A braza el calor de tu cultura !
