May the God of peace, who through the blood of the eternal covenant brought back from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great Shepherd of the sheep, equip you with everything good for doing his will, and may he work in us what is pleasing to him, through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen
This week‘s verses about God’s will have not been what I expected. Somehow I was hoping to gain the key to understanding why bad things happen, and why God allows evil to continue. But the verses have reminded me of this: I am here to do God’s will. The closer I grow to God, the clearer I will see. All I do and say should be in line with his most perfect plan. I can only do my part, and cannot control others. But my part includes sharing God’s love with others and loving others myself.
Holy Lord, your will is sometimes clear, and sometimes a mystery. But my path beside Jesus is where I belong. I pray I never lose sight of you. Amen
