    Pleasing Dad

    Pleasing Dad!

    Romans 13:6-7NLT
    Pay your taxes, too, for these same reasons. For government workers need to be paid. They are serving God in what they do. Give to everyone what you owe them: Pay your taxes and government fees to those who collect them, and give respect and honor to those who are in authority.

    As we pay our legitimate debts, such as taxes, and fees for necessary services, we fulfill the command to respect and love our fellow man in the Lord, and we set an example of good citizenship. Above all, we honour God by our adherence to His law for living. Paying my obligations is to be done, yes, but with a cheerful heart. How pleasant it is to know that God is pleased with us! It spurs us on to more and more righteousness—just as a little child is spurred on to more and more pleasing behaviour when he or she knows daddy is happy with him/her!

    When we behave in these right ways, we please God, and move toward what is spoken in verse 8:

    Owe nothing to anyone—except for your obligation to love one another. If you love your neighbor, you will fulfill the requirements of God’s law.

    What freedom! Not owing any man, but rather indebted to love! All the requirements God gives us are summed up in this: Love your neighbour! Amen! It is so blessed to know that Father God is pleased with us! What peace and joy can surpass that knowledge?

    Isn't it wonderful that when we are pleasing Daddy, He showers us with blessings? Or He gives us what we ask, even though we don't deserve it?
    I am suffering badly at the moment with pain....... yet His Presence at times seems so clearly to me....... holding me while the pain is high or sometimes He takes the pain away...... what an awesome God we serve!
    I love You Daddy!

    Love you lots,
    Glorious Day
    Living He loved me
    Dying He saved me
    Buried He carried my sins far away
    Risen He justified
    Freely forever
    One day He's coming
    Oh Glorious Day!
