Scripture Reading: Jeremiah 33: 1-3
Let’s start today’s reflection with this beautiful prayer from St. Anslem, “O Lord our God, grant us the grace to desire you with our whole heart, that in desiring you we may seek and find you; that finding you we may love you. And loving you we may despise the sins from which you have redeemed us.” The Psalmist says, “I keep the Lord always before me; because he is at my right hand, I shall not be moved. You show me the path of life, in your presence there is fullness of joy; in your right hand are pleasures forever” (Psa. 16: 8,11). Believers should seek and cherish above all else intimate fellowship with God; because the Lord’s continuous presence at our right hand brings his counsel, joy, resurrection, and eternal blessings. Friend, believers perceive God differently; due to differences in their daily life experiences, characters and human differences.
