“ARISE, LORD, SAVE ME” (Ps 3:7)
⏰Monday of the Fourth Week in Ordinary Time Year 2 (29 January 2018)
????2 Sam 15:13-14, 30, 16:5-13a; Ps 3:2-3, 4-5, 6-7 (R.v.7c); Mark 5:1-20
My dear, I warmly welcome you in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ to this great working week, in which we shall be witnessing the end of January and the beginning of February. I pray that God’s mercy will follow throughout this week and even beyond it so that you may equally witness the end of all that bring you distraction and pain, and the beginning of the overflow of God’s blessings in your life, through Christ our Lord. Amen.
You only need to do one important thing in order to be disposed to win that special favour from God in abundance: Surrender your yourself totally to his will, and it shall be well with you.
Despite his moral weakness, David could still see God’s will in whatever comes his way. He would not allow his subjects to fight the man who was insulting him because he believed that God is more than able to fight for him if he so wills (cf. 2 Sam 16:9-12).
Are you not going to follow his example and surrender yourself entirely to the care of God? He is more than able to help you. More still, he is stronger than even the most difficult of all your problems.
Can you see what he did with the unclean spirits in the region of Gerasenes? Gerasenes was in a territory that was considered as dirty. Not only was the man contaminated, the land too was. Hence, he cleanses, not only the man, but also the land (Mark 5:1-13).
I pray that he may also cleanse whatever misfortune that might be hovering around your head, your household or our land. No matter how much the devil labour, this shall be a blessed week for us through Christ our Lord. Amen.
Have a peaceful and miraculous week ahead. Peace be with you.
