⏰Friday of the Second Week of Lent (02 March 2018)

????Gen 37:3-4, 12-13a, 17b-28; Ps 105:15-17, 18-19, 20-21 (R.v.5a); Matt 21:33-43, 45-46

My dear, Joseph was a simple young man who was blessed by God with an extraordinary gift of dreams. For this singular reason of God’s blessings on him, his brothers became so jealous and sought to eliminate him. But their evil plan rather made it quicker for Joseph to get down to Egypt, his land of glory (Gen 37:28) free of charge.

Never worry when the evil ones seem to manipulate your God-given destiny; they can never succeed without serving God’s purpose. Nobody can stop you. The stones that they throw at you to kill you shall turn to be your stepping stones that will lead you to glory. Amen

So you can see that God cannot close his eyes at the plight of the just man. He may allow the just man to go through suffering but in the end, it will be for the good he had planned for him (see Heb 12:6). You only need to have absolute trust in God and his Providence.

As for those who turn themselves into agents of the devil for the manipulation of God’s blessings on his people – the cultists, witches and wizards, all enemies of progress – God is warning them to remove their hand from fire before it begins to burn. This is because they may not be able to quench the flame when it begins (Matt 21:41).

May God protect you from the wicked plans of your enemies this day and beyond. Amen.

Have a blessed day ahead. Peace be with you.
