“BLESSED ARE ALL WHO TRUST IN YOU, O LORD” (Ps 2:12)
⏰Monday of the Second Week of Easter (12 April 2021)
📖Acts 4:23-31; Ps 2:1-3, 4-6, 7-9 (R.v.12d); John 3:1-8
What do you do when faced with great difficulty in your business, place of work or even faced with great opposition from people who are merely jealous of your progress? Learn from the disciples in Acts 4:23-31. In such situations, they talked to God in prayer and were strengthened by God.
So do not joke with your prayers this week because the enemy the devil is prowling round like a roaring lion seeking to devour you (1Pet 5:7). It is only prayer that can assist you.
Nicodemus also was in crisis. He thought he had knowledge when he was in fact dying in ignorance (cf. John 3:2). The fact of coming to Jesus at night is itself a Johannine way of presenting him as someone in darkness.
He might not have understood that he was in darkness but he knew he has some doubts and he visited Jesus to have his doubts clarified.
Jesus is already working on him to lead him from his darkness into light. He would equally work on you if you visit him in prayer.
May Jesus protect from the hands of your enemies. May he also clarify your doubts and lead you from the darkness of unbelief into the light of faith, from the darkness of failure into the light of success and from the darkness of death into the light of life. Amen.
Have a beautiful and successful week ahead under the protection of God. Peace be with you.
