The Glory of God!
October 9, 2023
Dear Family of Mary!
Our Lady gave two messages in 1985 in which she mentioned something unusual. She gave them a way to pray for God’s plan. Here are the two messages:
“Dear Children, These days satan is manifesting himself in a special way in this parish. Pray, dear children, that God’s plan is brought into effect and that every work of satan ends up for the glory of God. I have stayed with you this long so I might help you along in your trials. Thank you for having responded to my call.” (02/07/1985)
“Pray, dear children, so that God’s plan may be accomplished, and all the works of satan be changed in favor of the Glory of God.” (02/17/1985).
Our Lady told the children to pray for God’s plan, and then she added, “pray…that every work of satan ends up for the glory of God.” Or as in the second message, “Pray…all the works of satan be changed in favor of the Glory of God.” What does this say to us?
I think Our Lady wants us to actively pray that all that our enemy is doing in our lives will end up for the glory of God. We can simply pray that. It is a statement of truth and hope. We can pray that all that our enemy plans to do to harm and entrap us will be thwarted by the Lord, and end up bringing the Glory of God to us! That is good news!
I also think Our Lady sees much more than we do. And she sees that God is infinitely more powerful than our enemy, satan. And that with very little effort God can thwart all the plans of the enemy, so that all the enemy’s efforts will end up giving glory to God Himself!
And isn’t this the truth. We have seen it clearly. When? In the Crucifixion and Death of Jesus. The enemy did his worst to Jesus. Jesus died after horrible suffering, in public. Certainly no one would believe in Jesus again. And yet on the third day, Jesus rose, triumphant and glorious. And all satan’s efforts ended up for the Glory of God!
This is the pattern we see in the lives of the saints and in our own families, when a trial turns into a victory because of love and forgiveness and trust. All ends up for the Glory of God!! It is certain for those who stay faithful to the Lord and keep to His ways.
Our Lady wants us to have this heavenly hope, that all will be well, and all manner of things shall be well. God will triumph over our enemy and all that the enemy has tried to do to ruin us will turn for the glory of God!
Our Lady also told us that we need to do all we do for the Glory of God, every day of our lives. Here is a beautiful message about the Glory of God:
September 25, 2020 “Dear children! I am with you for so long because God is great in His love and in my presence. I am calling you, little children: return to God and to prayer. May the measure of your [way of] living be love and do not forget, little children, that prayer and fasting work miracles in you and around you. May everything you do be for the glory of God, and then Heaven will fill your heart with joy and you will feel that God loves you and is sending me to save you and the earth on which you live. Thank you for having responded to my call.”
We can do everything we do for the Glory of God!! It is a wonderful way to live. It is our choice. Who are we giving glory to in our lives? Are we seeking our own glory? Or are we longing to give glory to God through our lives. We can turn our ordinary actions into moments of heavenly glory, if we do everything for the Glory of God!
“May everything you do be for the glory of God, and then Heaven will fill your heart with joy and you will feel that God loves you and is sending me to save you and the earth on which you live.”
In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!
