Today’s reading: Psalm 128
“Blessed is everyone who fears the Lord, who walks in his ways!”
“because of the hope laid up for you in heaven. Of this you have heard before in the word of the truth, the gospel, which has come to you, as indeed in the whole world it is bearing fruit and increasing—as it also does among you, since the day you heard it and understood the grace of God in truth,”
Colossians 1:5-6 ESV
No matter how long it has been since you felt the power of the gospel in your life, you can find fresh revelation in Christ today. The Holy Spirit is your guide and is always available to you. Have you felt the comfort of the Spirit’s nearness in distress? Have you known the peace of God that passes understanding? Have you felt tendrils of hope rising even in the chaos of unknowns? These small but powerful moments come from the Spirit. How can this blessed relationship grow?
Let faith and love rise within you. There is revelation and knowledge to be found in communion with the Spirit of Christ today. There is hope to be found in his faithful love. There is an unbending truth in the Trinity—Father, Son, and Spirit—exhibited in his living Word. The nature of God is revealed in the person of Jesus. These are our inheritance and treasure.
Jesus, open the eyes of my heart to know your greatness in new and tangible ways today. Enlarge my understanding, and reveal the goodness of your love, that it may rise within me. I look to you with expectation. Amen
