“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – Jeremiah 29:11-13

.

TODAY’S WORD…

.

“I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord,

“plans to prosper you and not to harm you,

plans to give you hope and a future.

.

Then you will call on me and come and pray to me,

and I will listen to you.

You will seek me and find me

when you seek me with all your heart.”

.

– Jeremiah 29:11-13 (NIV)

.

.

.

REFLECTION…

.

God knows the plans He has for us,

– only He, and nobody else.

.

That is why if we believe in Him;

if we heart-fully accept Him as our God;

if we have total trust in Him;

then we will thankfully allow Him to lead us,

as we gladly do His will.

.

God promises us that when we seek Him with all our heart,

we shall find Him.

.

There are many who are witnesses to this truth!

.

THE CATECHISM OF THE CATHOLIC CHURCH…

.

Divine providence consists of

the dispositions by which God guides all His creatures

with wisdom and love to their ultimate end. [CCC 321]

.

.

Christ invites us to filial trust in the providence of our heavenly Father,

and St. Peter the apostle repeats (I Pt 5:7):

"Cast all your anxieties on Him, for He cares about you." [CCC 322]

.

.

Divine providence works also through the actions of creatures.

To human beings God grants the ability to cooperate freely with His plans. [CCC 323]

.

.

.

PRAYER FOR TODAY…

.

Give me faith, O God, during the times I’m weary, discouraged, and beaten down.

Inspire me, Lord, to trust in Your great promises.
