Luke 9:10-17: Seek Trust – Multiplication

Saturday, December 16, 2017

I do not know why I worry that perhaps God has no provisions to fix things that go wrong.  God sends us the message constantly that God is capable of handling all things.  Jesus feeds thousands from a small meal.  Why do I worry?

God multiplies God’s self in us each day.  Luke records (1:46-55) how Mary intoned her beautiful Magnificat when she heard Gabriel’s words . . . My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord . . . I must remember that my being must magnify the plans and works of God and not diminish them . . . just as Jesus multiplies food to sustain those who follow him.

The intercessions and Morning Prayer from today’s MAGNIFICAT align with these thoughts.

You are our life and our salvation!

Yours is the night and yours the day: enlighten us with your wisdom at every hour of our lives.  You are our life and our salvation!

Yours are the years and yours the season: teach us to trust in your provident designs.  You are our life and our salvation!

Yours is the fullness of life: bring us to dwell in your presence for ever.  You are our life and our salvation!

Lord, God of timelessness, you order all things according to your wise designs.  Grant us discerning hearts, that we may know and love and serve your plan, through Christ our Lord. Amen.
