“On Him we have set our hope that He will deliver us again.”
-2 Corinthians 1:10
God will intervene. He will come to our aid. He does have a plan. And His plan is devised for our welfare. This calls us reflect prayerfully on the challenges we are facing, the difficulties that are presenting themselves, the trials that are bearing down on us, and to ask this question: Where is God in this situation, and what is He saying to me? I know that He is involved — Scripture has told me that. So what are His will and His purpose in the midst of this event?
“It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me.”
Today we celebrate the conversion of St. Paul. His powerful experience of Jesus Christ turned him from a persecutor of Christians to one of the greatest evangelizers of Christianity. Like him, we are called to meet Christ and grow in union with Him. How can you meet Him today? In what ways can you allow Him to live more powerfully in you?
“The chief exercise of prayer is to speak to God and to hear God speak
in the bottom of your heart.”
St. Francis de Sales
Prayer is the gateway to friendship and intimacy with God. Do you have a regular and consistent time of prayer? Are there ways you can improve your prayer time? What one step will you take today?
