Reflections: It is amazing what one word can do. We all wait in a wedding for the word ‘will’ for to say ‘I will not’ would be catastrophic! Paul has reached the pivotal word that changes his disheartenment into hope. For. That God is enough and does not need changing, that Jesus is glorious and shows us God has consequences in Paul’s life. Paul and his friends can act with hope in even hideous circumstances. He is freed from having to generate power from within because he has grasped the enduring capacity of God.
Activity: Retell yourself the stories about Jesus, his parables, his miracles, his dealings with different people you thought of yesterday.
Questions: How do you remind yourself of Jesus’ sufficiency?
Prayer: God of all provision, thank you that you open all of your capacity for us. Thank you that we do not need to make our way drawing only from ourselves. May you remind me of the riches you have laid aside for me in Jesus. Amen.
