Romans 8:28 God works for the good of those who Love Him

Image result for romans 8 28

Now, we all know that we all need to follow God’s Holy Will.  His plan is the best for each one of us.  Some of us walk in paths that God does not approve but we want to do what we want.  But when we do our will, eventually we will find out that our plan and our will, leads us along the wrong path because it is not what God wants of us.  So it is important for us to surrender our lives and our will to the Living God.  Then, we become wise for we begin to understand and accept God’s plan for our lives.  We understand that in all things, God works for the good of those who Love him, who have been called according to His Purpose.

In other words, God has created each one of us to do what He wants us to do in this world.  And when we follow his plans, He works all things for our good.  I remember there was a time when I wanted what I wanted and I went after the things that I thought I needed but I failed and kept on failing until I realised that it was fruitless doing my own thing and then I began to studies in scripture and I learned that we were created to give God all the Glory and not search for Glory for ourselves.  The Bible became my source of strength and I studied and gained more knowledge about God.   I began to trust God above all things and began to trust Him above all else.  Then I surrendered my life to His Holy Will.  It was then that I was picked up and carried into the arms of my Heavenly Father and I never regretted the decision I made on that day.  Till date, I just surrender my every day to Him and He plans my day and my life which gives me the greatest joy and peace that I have ever experienced and enjoyed in my life.

My dear brothers and sisters, if we surrender our lives to God, He will in all things work for our good and who have been called to His Purpose.

This is what God did to my plans and at that time I did not understand.  I was upset with Him but gradually I realised that it was best to surrender to this Great Big God of Ours and to surrender to His plans.  When Our Wants are not His Plan, then it is best to surrender Our Wants and take on His Purpose.  Then You and I will experience the great peace and Joy on earth.

Romans 12:2 by Florence D’Costa

Romans 12:2  Do not copy the behaviour and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think.  Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.

What does Paul mean.  He means exactly what he has written – He very specifically tells us not to copy the behaviour and customs of this world.  At the moment in Australia a small group is clambering to redefine marriage and in Victoria the Government is trying to bring in a culture of death – they are wanting to bring in Euthanasia.  Now this is the way some parts of the world are thinking. But Paul says, ‘let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. ‘  So, we are called to look to God and not to the world, He will teach us his ways and make us a new person who will not be part of the world but a people who will belong to God.  When we belong to God, we will know God’s Will for us which will be good, pleasing and perfect – to God ofcourse.

The ways of the world is definitely not God’s ways and hence it should definitely not be our ways as well.  My experience is when we look to Christ and follow God’s Holy Will, we will be transformed and made new and when people see us, they will surely know that we belong to Christ.

Choose Palliative Care – Why Assisted Suicide?

Humminbird

This image is so beautiful and there is so much beauty in this world.  T0 feel healthy and strong is an awesome feeling.  What happens when a person is terminally ill, how do you think they feel, especially if they are having terrible pain.  Well, we do have palliative care and that is so beautiful.  People are loved and they are made to feel comfortable as they slowly approach death.  Palliative Care enables terminally ill people to die with dignity.  They are made to feel comfortable right to the very end.  Why do some people want assisted suicide?  Why are Governments for assisted suicide instead of continuing with palliative care.

God is our shepherd by Florence D’Costa

God is our Shepherd and we Iike sheep have all gone astray, so God laid all our iniquity upon His Son Jesus Christ so that we the sheep would be saved and redeemed. So, let our prayer be ‘ Shepherd me O God beyond my wants, beyond my fears from death into life’.

Intercessory Prayer for Victory by Florence D’Costa

Let us all pray for one another.  Let us also pray for those who are attracted to the same sex.  Let us also pray for those who have terminal illnesses and who want to Euthanasia to be introduced.  Let us all come into the presence of God and plead for Him to have mercy on Australia.

Make me a Channel of Your Peace by Florence D’Costa

There are many in this world who are very unhappy and who feel that life has no meaning and they want to end their lives by committing suicide. Some people also because of their tremendous suffering and pain also want to end their lives … There is life after death and through suffering we can attain heaven. When we lose patience and want to commit suicide or when we try to ask someone’s else is to end our lives, we are surely heading off in the wrong direction – Euthanasia is VERY WRONG…..

GIVE SOMEONE A SMILE TO BRIGHTEN THEIR LIFE AND YOURS AS WELL!

girl-smiley-facesmiley-face-06-large

All these days, I was talking to happy people – to people who have plenty of everything.  Now I am talking to the people who consider themselves less fortunate,  I do have a WORD OF ADVICE for you.

You might think that you do not have something to share but give away free from what you do have.  Give to those who pass you by – give to them a SMILE which is FREE OF COST.  If you are homeless but you know that you are healthy.  All you need is a shower everyday and food.  If you are happy with this, then go around and spread happiness – Give people a SMILE. There are so many wealthy people who are not happy one way or another.  So let those of us who have less, give to others the little that we have.

Trusting in God totally in the midst of trials and tribulations.

It is extremely important for us to trust in God totally and completely with no doubt in our hearts in the midst of trials and tribulations. God is really and truly alive and He is journeying with us.

Deliverance by Florence D’Costa

Let us stay connected to God through Christ. Let us put on the armour of God and let us resist the devil and he will flee.  If you are far away from God presently and are in a sinful state, then it is important for you to ask those whom you trust to pray for you.  Then it is important for you to make a good confession and you, yourself should begin the walk back to Christ Jesus and pray on a regular basis.
