Read the Directions

Have you ever bought something without reading the directions? I remember doing this when I was suffering from allergies. I squirted some of the medicine in my nose, and it ran down my throat. It was not pleasant. So I read the directions. Ah. First, tilt your head to the side and watch what happens. It worked most amazingly.

So, it makes sense to read the directions of the Creator to learn how to live honorably and peacefully in this world. His Word soaks into our minds and hearts. He takes the world out of us, and we begin to see, think, and act like the Son of God. We know God is with us.

This is why Shadrach, Mescheck, and Abednego were free to walk into the blazing furnace in the first reading. They were not afraid to profess their faith in God regardless of what happened. One who looked like the Son of God was with them—the same Son of God who is with us.

Gospel Challenge:

Freedom is that power to allow Jesus to give us His increase right in the middle of whatever we are experiencing. If we are afraid, He gives us the courage to do the right thing. If things seem hopeless, Jesus gives us direction when we ask for it. If we are crippled by anxiety about the future, He gives us peace by trusting in His providential care. Abandon, surrender to Jesus everything. Try it. Your heart will be filled with joy and peace.

Our Lord already knows our lives in all their fullness. He is waiting for us to decide if that is what we want.
