Wednesday 26th March – Wednesday of the 3rd Week of Lent.
Reflection: Psalm 147: 12-16, 19-20
IT’S ALL ABOUT GOD
The more the world realizes its nothingness without God, its maker, the better it would operate. We may have acquired lots of skills and advancement in technology, we may be permitted to have our way and ignorantly do many things contrary to God’s precepts, yet, all these do not rule out the importance of God. The Scriptures tell us that “everything God does will last forever. You can’t add anything to it or take anything away from it” (Eccl 3: 14a). The Psalmist today directs his message to the supremacy of God. Nothing can ever exist without His consent. He is the Alpha and Omega. What he commands his quickly done (Ps 147:15).
Beloved, have you taken time to build up every aspect of your life on Godly principles? What is God saying about your relationship, your career, your utterances, your dressing, eating habits etc? The more God is permitted to possess everything about us, the happier and fulfilled we would become. Let us commit our ways into His hands. God is ready to teach you. As you read His word, make a conscious plan to observe them. (Deut. 4: 9-10). They are the package of God to you which keeps unfolding till the perfect day. It all about God and what he has to say about you. Nothing else counts and in him, we exist and have our being.
PRAYER: Lord Jesus, reign in my thoughts, my actions and my will. Your will is mine and your word is my portion. Amen.
KNOW YOUR FAITH: YOUCAT 40 – Can God do anything? Is he almighty?
“For God nothing is impossible” (see Luke 1:37). He is almighty.
Anyone who calls on God in need believes that he is all-powerful. God created the world out of nothing. He is the Lord of history. He guides all things and can do everything…Often God’s omnipotence is displayed in a situation where men no longer expect anything from it. The powerlessness of Good Friday was the prerequisite for the Resurrection.
