📕1 Cor 6:1-11; Ps 149:1b-2, 3-4 3-4, 5-6a and 9b (R.v.4a); Luke 6:12-19

May the peace of Christ in all its fullness dwell with you. Amen.

The Psalmist says in Psalm 34:19, “Many are the troubles of the just, but the Lord delivers them from them all.” Jesus himself says, “Come to me, all of you who work hard and who carry heavy burdens, and I will refresh you” (Matt 11:28).

One problem that we normally have, as St Paul hinted in his letter to the Corinthians (cf. 1Cor 6:1-11, without prejudice to the text) is that of belittling ourselves in the presence of our subordinates. When faced with little challenge in life, the next thing is to look for some shrine to consult or secret cult to join. Even as worse is the case of lowering our moral standards in order to get solutions.

Do you not trust the word of God when it says in 1 John 4:4, “…The one who is in you is more powerful than the one who is in the world?”

There is only one thing required of you even as you continue your quest for breakthrough. Jesus gave us the example of that in Luke 6:12 – Tell God about it in prayer!

What are you still doing? Are you a child of God? The psalmist says that “The Lord takes delight in his people” (Ps 149:4). That means, he is ever ready to attend to your worries. Do not do his work for him by worrying over it yourself for you are worth more than the birds of the air and the flowers in the field (see Matt 6:25-34).

May God grant you a longing for him every moment so as to depend on him in all things and always call on him. And may none of your prayers, this day and beyond, go unanswered through Christ our Lord. Amen.

Have a grace-filled day ahead. It is well with you.
