I GIVE THANKS TO GOD FOR HIS GOODNESS!

PRAISE REPORT

Today it is 11 weeks since I fell I broke my ankle. This has been quite a journey! The devil intended it for evil, but the Holy Spirit turned it for my good, better said, for our good! So many blessings came on our children (natural and spiritual) at this same time. That is how I know that God is in control. This is just one testimony:
Our older daughter celebrates her birthday today! She is a woman of God, a wonderful daughter to us and a amazing mother to her three children. “I pray that God will bless you with the blessings of Christ! Your dad and I, we love you, dearest Alina! In Jesus name, amen!” To God alone be all the glory for the successful lives of our children!

“Oh, that men would give thanks to the LORD for His goodness, And for His wonderful works to the children of men! For He satisfies the longing soul, And fills the hungry soul with goodness” (Psalm 107:8-9)

I GIVE THANKS TO GOD FOR HIS GOODNESS!!!

PRAISE REPORT

Today it is 11 weeks since I fell I broke my ankle. This has been quite a journey! The devil intended it for evil, but the Holy Spirit turned it for my good, better said, for our good! So many blessings came on our children (natural and spiritual) at this same time. That is how I know that God is in control. This is just one testimony:

In just one month, our daughter Jemine Leigh Oakes and her husband Matthew Oakes have sold their little two bedrooms town house. With the money they were able to buy a much more beautiful and bigger house, a four bedroom bungalow, and still have money to spare. They moved in today. In the picture see their sweet son Oliver, ‘helping’ with moving the furniture… This is purely a financial miracle, a gift by the grace of God!

Even if I wanted to feel sorry for myself, God did not allow me to do it. For the overflow blessings are more than I can tell! You too receive your financial miracle! Trust in God alone and not in man! Just promise God that you will testify of His goodness in your life and you will give Him all the glory! He will do it!

To God alone be all the glory for all the blessings bestowed on me, my husband and our children! In Jesus name, amen!

“Oh, that men would give thanks to the LORD for His goodness, And for His wonderful works to the children of men! For He satisfies the longing soul, and fills the hungry soul with goodness.” (Psalm 107:8-9)

THE SURVIVAL OF THE FITTEST

 

“I returned and saw under the sun that—

The race is not to the swift,

Nor the battle to the strong,

Nor bread to the wise,

Nor riches to men of understanding,

Nor favor to men of skill;

But time and chance happen to them all” (Ecc 9:11)

 

This expression is attributed to Charles Darwin who brought the idea of ‘Evolution of the species’. He believed that the animal species develop from one another, from the inferior to the superior. He also believed that the weaker species die and the strong ones survive. He said that the fittest survive because they can better adapt to the environment and because they have stronger ‘genes’ to multiply faster. It is Darwin that said that men came out of monkeys. This theory was later applied to the human behavior in general. Even today people believe that the leaders, the champions and the heroes are the strongest men. They are the ones who are physically fit; who eat well and daily train in a gym. It has affected many intellectuals all over the world. It is the basis of racism, discrimination of all kinds and the culture of abortion. The people who believe in this theory say that those who are eliminated in the struggle for existence are unfit to live anyway. They are not sorry for the weak, the handicap, the ugly, the poor and the humble.

 

This is a worldly theory. The world is the system of men that works without God. The devil is called ‘the god of this world’ (2Cor 4:4). The theory of evolution totally ignores Elohim- God, who is the Creator of all that is created. The survival of the fittest ignores God who is in charge of His creation, who decides who lives and who dies. God promotes and demotes any man He wants. In fact who the world calls ‘strength’ is nothing to God. “That is why Scripture says: “God opposes the proud but shows favor to the humble” (Jam 4:6)

 

When Jesus Christ came to this world He did not seem ‘fit’ as the world describes its heroes. He died on the Cross in weakness. Men and devils thought that is the end of Him. But Jesus ‘survived’ over them all. His descendants are like the stars of the sky and the sea on the seashore. We are His children and we are like Him. We may look weak and foolish but we live forever! In Christ, we overcome the world! The wisdom of the world is foolishness to God.

 

This is my testimony: I grew up in Romania, a communist country at that time. We studied Darwin and his theory in school and we believed in it. I did not believe in God. I really thought that monkeys were my ancestors. Thank God for Jesus! After I got saved, I repented of all my foolish and dangerous worldly ideas! I now believe and know without any shadow of doubt that God has created me, saved me and sustains me. God loves me! I have no business with Darwin and his world. My business now is to serve and worship my Savior and Hero forever! He is the King of kings and the Lord of lords, Jesus Christ, the Son of the Living God! Halleluiah!

DO YOU WANT TO BE WEALTHY? THEN READ THIS!

 

 

“Seek the Lord while He may be found,

Call upon Him while He is near.

Let the wicked forsake his way,

And the unrighteous man his thoughts;

Let him return to the Lord,

And He will have mercy on him;

And to our God,

For He will abundantly pardon” (Is 55:6, 7)

 

There are many believers who ask me for counsel, how to have a financial breakthrough. This is my basic answer: Seek God first and prosperity shall be added to the seeker! (Mt 6:33). The devil deceives and confuses people. He tells them to seek wealth first giving them false hopes that God shall later follow. This will never happen, for God wants to be first in your life. Others ask: ‘how do I seek God’? In the scripture above you see how to do it.

 

*Seeking God is a command. It is not just a suggestion. Jesus is the Captain of our Salvation and He commands you to seek Him. Your answer should be ‘Yes, Sir!’ Start seeking God thru the Word of God, fasting and prayer! Seek God until you find Him!

*Seek God ‘while He may be found’. The Holy Spirit moves as He pleases. There are seasons when He does not move and He keeps silent. If you sense a drawing at your heart, it means He is calling you to seek Him. Do not waste that precious opportunity! You never know if or when another comes.

*Call upon the name of the Lord! Shout Jesussssssssssss!!!!!!! Be active spiritually and desperate to find God!

*Forsake your sinful way of life and your selfish thoughts! Separate from any friend who is not interested in God.

*Once you find God you shall receive mercy for He shall ‘abundantly pardon’ all of your sins! There is ‘abundant’ pardon, beyond your imagination pardon for you when you find God!

 

Let me use a picture to describe this seeking. A man has abandoned his loving wife for another woman. He now lives with his lover. From time to time he remembers his wife with some regret. That is not seeking! For as long as he only thinks about his wife, with love or with regret, that is not seeking his wife. One day, when the lover is gone shopping, he feels guilty and makes a phone call to his wife. He tells her that he misses her and still loves her. The wife has the right to ask: ‘Did you forsake your lover’ He says: ‘No”. That is not seeking! But if one day he tells the lover: ‘I am tired of this relationship! I love my wife! I go back to my wife!’ Then he phones his wife that he is on his way home. Then he shall find mercy and forgiveness from his wife. It is love, reconciliation and the grace of a new beginning! That means true seeking!

 

If you have read this note to the end, it means that God is calling you! Come like the prodigal son! Your Father has never stopped loving you! Come to Jesus! Come home!

Hebrews
