Be alert to God’s Presence in you
  • Ezekiel 1:2-5,24-28
  • Psalm 148:1-2,11-14
  • Matthew 17:22-27

God the Father seeing the predicament and destruction of His creation, comes down to bring salvation. In a way Heaven invades earth so that earth may reflect Heaven. God becomes one with humanity, so that humanity may become one with Divinity. Jesus appears in human form. He abased and humbled Himself. We too are invited to have the same attitude and purpose. Because He stooped so low, God highly exalted Him. We too are called to do so in Him. Our exaltation into Divine realms follow as a result. Now we do not have to be frightened. We should welcome challenging times as opportunities to trust Him. We have Him beside us. When the path before us is dotted with difficulties, let us beware of measuring our strengths against these challenges. It will riddle us with anxiety. Without Him we would not make it past the first hurdle. He calls us to hold His hand and stay in communication with Him. Regardless of the day’s problems, He would keep us in perfect peace, if we stay close to Him.

Prayer: Abba Father, I praise you even when my heart is bound by chains of anxiety for your Holy Spirit could break them as I hold your hands. Amen.
