TODAY’S DEVOTIONAL MESSAGE

St. Francis – “Dear Child, Your Search For Christ Is Not In Vain. Hold Fast His Keywords & Teachings And Systematically Search For His Divinity In All Things”

Beloved one, your search for God is a deeply personal and meaningful journey. Whilst many people look to prayer and contemplation to feel God’s presence, I want you to know that your search for him does not always need to do be through meditative channels.

Just like looking at a beautiful art piece, you may find inspiration and several topics or keywords pop up in your mind that help to deepen your appreciation. If yourself feeling frustrated and blocked on a spiritual level, realize that God is present in all the little things in front of you. From your smiling children to the small comforts you enjoy every day, God is with you.

The way to the Christ is a journey that requires patience, openness, willingness to learn and the most important virtue of all – love. It is not always easy, but the rewards of deepening your connection in God is immeasurable.

Ask not for God to reveal himself to you, but open yourself up to Him and become a channel of His peace.

You Are An Organic Channel of Christ

Dear one, have you ever prayed that God would just reveal himself to you and bring his divine healing & transformation into your life?

I know that you have been searching high and low for the graces of God ever since you were born. But I want you to pause for a moment and reconsider how to optimize your results.

Anyone that wishes for God to simply “appear” in front of them in physical form is misled. You need only to look up his Word to know that God is in fact searching for us every second of the day. Consider these powerful bible verses:

Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” – Isaiah 41:10

“When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overwhelm you; when you walk through fire you shall not be burned, and the flame shall not consume you.” – Isaiah 43:2

“Be strong and courageous. Do not fear or be in dread of them, for it is the Lord your God who goes with you. He will not leave you or forsake you.” – Deuteronomy 31:6

Never was it mentioned that God would appear to us, but that He would never leave us and He will strengthen us in all things. The truth is, God is a lot nearer than you think!

The Most Powerful Keyword In The World

“Therefore God has highly exalted Him and has freely bestowed on Him the name that is above every name, that at the mention of the name of Jesus every knee shall bow, of those in heaven, those on earth and those under the earth and that every tongue shall confess that Jesus Christ is Lord to the Glory of God the Father.” - Philippians 2:9-11

Whenever the name is mentioned, wonderful things happen like people receiving healing and freed from bondage of tribulations. The powers that are in His name are capable of moving mountains. It is a mighty word that is positioned above all else, and no other force may outrank.

Today I urge you to call upon the most holy name of Jesus in the times where you need Him the most. Do not give in to fear or doubt, but trust that His divine presence is enough to shatter all challenges & evil that are in your path.

God’s Word Will Gather Nations

When you read the bible, do not speed through just to get from start to finish. Instead crawl over the pages to fully absorb the wisdom and promises of the Lord. For His word will will set you free only if you truly understand and hold it to heart.

Remember that Christ is building a nation, and we as His children are called to action. You will not falter in the face of tribulations, but stand firm, proud and bear the name of Jesus with pride.

Let Us Pray

“Dear God, I cannot thank you enough for you are the only one I seek. Thank you for being with me through every step, every struggle, and every one of my successes. You have opened my eyes and broadened my heart. I accept all of your promises into my life. Make me a pillar of your kingdom here on earth. I may have humble beginnings, but I shall stand mighty in your name. This I pray, in the most precious name of Jesus. St. Francis, please pray for us. Amen.
