Day 34

Exodus 17:11
“Don’t get tired of lifting your hands”

“Lowering your arms” or “lowering your hands” means:Tiredness, impotent before something, to give up, to surrender. In this time there are many people that surround us that have lowered their arms; they have lost their faith and their hope. They have been defeated by the circumstances or situations that have been presented to them. And since they couldn’t do it with their talents, capacity, and human resources, they gave up, as to say, they lowered their arms. The weight of everything negative, the weight that is produced by adversity, and everything we desire that doesn’t happen, has the tendency to make our arms and hands weary.
Raise your hands to pray to God:
Hear my cry for mercy as I call to you for help, as I lift up my hands toward your Most Holy Place. Psalms 28:2
Raise your hands to overcome limits:
“Raise your staff and stretch out your hand over the sea to divide the water so that the Israelites can go through the sea on dry ground.” Exodus 14:16
Raise your hands to defeat your enemies:
“As long as Moses held up his hands, the Israelites were winning, but whenever he lowered his hands, the Amalekites were winning.” Exodus 17:11
Raise your hands to bless:
“I will praise you as long as I live, and in your name I will lift up my hands.” Psalms 63:4
Raise your hands to take the hand of God and walk up and forward. Hands must remain raised in accordance with your strength, your capacity of resistance, persistence of whom raises their hands, don’t get tired of raising your hands!!!

Éxodo 17.11
“No te canses de levantar tus manos”

“Bajar los brazos” o “bajar las manos” significa: Cansancio, impotencia ante algo, darse por vencido, rendirse. En este tiempo hay demasiadas personas a nuestro alrededor que han bajado los brazos, han bajado sus manos, han perdido su fe y esperanza. Han sido derrotados por las circunstancias o situaciones que se les presentaron. Y como no pudieron con sus talentos, capacidades y recursos humanos, se dieron por vencidos, es decir, bajaron los brazos. El peso de las cargas de todo lo negativo, el peso que produce la adversidad y todo lo que no deseamos y que nos ocurre, tienden a que nuestros brazos y manos se cansen.

1.-Levanta tus manos para orar a Dios:
“Oye la voz de mis ruego cuando clamo a ti, cuando alzo mis manos hacía tu santo templo.” Salmos 28:2.
2.-Levanta tus manos para superar los límites:
“Y tu alza tu vara, y extiende tu mano hacia el mar…” Éxodo 14:16.
3.-Levanta tus manos para vencer a tus enemigos:
“Y sucedía cuando alzaba Moisés su mano, Israel prevalecía; mas cuando él bajaba su mano, prevalecía Amalec. Éxodo 17:11.
4.-Levanta las manos para bendecir:
“Así te bendeciré en mi vida; en tu nombre alzaré mis manos.”
Salmo 63:4
Levanta tus manos para tomarte de la mano de Dios para caminar hacia arriba y para adelante.
Las manos Permanecen Levantadas de acuerdo a la Fortaleza, la Capacidad de Resistencia y Persistencia de quien las levanta, ¡no te canses de levantar tus manos!
