NO WEAPON FASHIONED AGAINST YOU WILL SUCCEED
THIRD WEEK OF ADVENT
?Num 24:2-7, 15-17; Ps 25:4-5ab, 6 and 7cd, 8-9, (R.v.4b); Matt 21:23-27
?”NO WEAPON FASHIONED AGAINST YOU WILL SUCCEED” (Ps 54:17)
My dear, in this new working week, I pray for you that any stone the enemy hurls at you this week and beyond shall not only turn stepping stones, they shall also become for you, showers of blessing. Amen.?
Those who labour to pull you down shall only be labouring in vain and working for your good because, just as God changed the evil mission of Balaam for the good of his people (see Num 24:2ff), so shall the curses they project against you shall turn to blessings for you. Amen.?
I declare that just as God pushed Balaam, a pagan, to prophesy the birth of the Messiah (Num 24:17), so shall he turn uncommon things, even uncomfortable and unfortunate ones to your favour. Amen.?
Do you see the confusion that the pride and wickedness of the chief priests and the elders of the people threw them into while they were trying to trap him (cf. Matt 21:23-27)? So shall the confusion be in the camp of any evil group that is gathered now to discuss your downfall. Amen.?
And may God teach us all his paths (cf. Ps 25:4) so that like St. John of the Cross, we may work for the wisdom of God and embrace holiness of life at all times. Amen.?
I wish you a great week of open doors of blessing, good health of mind and body, and all good things. It is well with you.??
