Your word is a lamp for my feet and a light for my path. (Psalm 119)
Just as Jesus sent his disciples on a journey out into the world so he sends us continually on journeys into the highways and byways of life to proclaim the Good News, drive out demons, free the prisoners and cure diseases. Indeed, Jesus sends us on different journeys throughout our life time, some close to home, and others farther afield. It’s quite simple, really, to journey for God’s purposes. I need nothing – not supplies, plans or projects. I need only to show up to receive by prayer and lectio divina, the assignment and the power Christ gives us by the gift of his Holy Spirit, and then be prepared to find and connect with those who are ready to welcome the good news of healing to be found in Christ Jesus. Will I live into the healing and helping work of Jesus as I set out on the journeys of my life? Holy Spirit of Jesus, help me do your work on my journeys through life.
Turn to him with all your heart and soul, live in loyal obedience to him. (Tobit 13:6)
It is not my ability, but my response to God’s ability that counts.
