verses 3-4: But no one in heaven or on earth or under the earth could open the scroll or even look inside it. I wept and wept because no one was found who was worthy to open the scroll or look inside.
I do not understand the book of Revelation, and have never really spent much time reading it. Reading the passage for today I was relieved to have at least a sense of what the verses were saying to me. Jesus is the Way. He is the one we are to look to for direction, for help, and for comfort. He is really the only one who can provide for us what we need. When I have thought and thought and thought about how to resolve a conflict, asking God to help me is often the resolution. Unfortunately I wait too long to go to God directly, and waste a lot of time ruminating. There is no problem too big for God. There are no locks he cannot unlock, or mazes he cannot see us through.
Holy Father, you are my guide, my advisor, my teacher, my coach and my friend. You are always there, never absent, and never too busy to help. I thank you with all of my heart. Amen
