For with God nothing shall be impossible Luke 1:37. God's Solution Ministries (GSM) brings Gods word of comfort and healing to everyone. GSM is a ministry where people freely share common hurts and find healing in the God of all comfort. We bring parents, families, caregivers, people or children with special needs who may not have been able to attend regular church services to Jesus Christ in an atmosphere of worship full of His love, joy, peace and healing. To take the good news of salvation to all. The Lord, through GSM is set to rebuild the broken walls, repair the breach that have existed between loved ones. God has promised to be good to those who seek him, testifying of His goodness and His power to deliver and save. Church services will resume after the government lockdowm. Please join the church services by calling in on phone or connecting online. May God continue to keep and bless us all in Jesus name. Also feel free to use the pages on Prayers for the month, Pandemic: Your balm of refuge and healing in uncertain times; and other materials on the website including the media section for specific prayers. Keep safe and God keep you in Jesus name.

Suffering Triumphantly?

Suffering Triumphantly?
 
But the God of all grace, who has called us to his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that you have suffered a while, make you perfect, establish, strengthen, settle you.  - 1 Peter 5:10
 
Suffering means to undergo; experience or go through pain, anguish, distress, torment, agony, affliction or misery.
 
Is this good or bad?
 
Good suffering is in line with God’s plan for our lives and works out God’s eternal purpose in our lives, family, career and destiny. Examples are Job, Jesus, Paul, Daniel, Joseph (Matthew 16:21, Acts 9:16, Romans 8:17-18). You are not to be ashamed of good suffering (2 Timothy 1:12).
 
Bad suffering is not in line with God’s plan for our lives. This happens when we suffer when we act as a child of the devil, rule breaker; or from the devil’s affliction. Examples are those who suffered from wrong jail convictions based on wrong DNA evidence; and the execution of Troy Davis (may be).
 
If you suffer, however, it must not be for murder, stealing, making trouble, or prying into other people's affairs.  - 1 Peter 4:15
 
We need to cry out to God to deliver us from bad suffering – Psalm 16:10-11
 
Our suffering is for a little while – 2 Corinthians 4:17
 
How do we cope with suffering? – Rejoice in hope: The Bible states in Romans 12:12 Rejoicing in hope; patient in tribulation; continuing instant in prayer; and in 2 Corinthians 4:18:
 
So we don't look at the troubles we can see now; rather, we fix our gaze on things that cannot be seen. For the things we see now will soon be gone, but the things we cannot see will last forever. 
                                                                       
Prayer
  •  Give thanks.
  •  Father: sustain me, don’t let me suffer needlessly.
       The Bible states in 1 Corinthians 10:13:
 
You have been put to no test but such as is common to man: and God is true, who will not let any test come on you which you are not able to undergo; but he will make with the test a way out of it, so that you may be able to go through it.
  • Father, don’t allow any allowed suffering overwhelm me in line with your word. Let is work for my good, make me perfect like Jesus in Hebrews 5:8-9
  • Father, deliver me from every evil suffering, I scatter and shatter every work of the enemy, in my life, family, work, career and destiny in the mighty name of Jesus.
  • And the Lord shall deliver me from every evil work, and will preserve me to his heavenly kingdom: to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen. (2 Timothy 4:18)
