Today’s readings pave a path for us to walk on. In the Gospel Proclamation, we hear about the narrow gate; the gate that brings life and is found only by a few. We see in the First Reading, the prayer of King Hezekiah, the King of Judah. He took his problem before God, but first He remembered who God is. This reminder is not for God, as He knows very well who He is. Rather it is a proclamation; a declaration spoken with confidence about the power and ability of God, instead of getting lost in the problem. He then presented His problem before God, in complete trust, that He will be answered. This is the narrow gate He chose to walk through. The King could have responded to this situation in so many different ways, but chose to fall at the feet of God instead. It was a path that was laughed at, but Hezekiah continued to believe and hold on in faith. Let us think of the situations we are placed in today and choose the narrow path as we remember who God is and lay our problems at His feet.
Prayer: Abba Father, I desire you to lead me on the narrow path in every situation I am placed in. Amen.
