Always with you

"I, the Lord, am with you always, until the end of the world." (Matthew 28: 20)

Jesus is Emmanuel – God with us. But in Matthew 28: 20, He promises to be with us always till the end of our life. Consider this for a moment. A medical doctor can be very powerful and highly competent. But can he promise to be with you always until the end of your life? Of course not! Only Jesus can make this promise and keep it.

Let your desire be granted

"Woman, you have great faith. Let your desire be granted." (Matthew 15: 28)

My simple definition of faith is putting our trust in God's word. This happy woman has just heard that her desire is granted. Her faith led her to ask confidently. She went away believing that it would be done to her according to what Jesus said. I want to exercise my faith like this woman. I want to hear Jesus say to me: "Let your desire be granted."

Milk and honey

"We have made our way to the country where you sent us. It does indeed flow with milk and honey; here is what it produces. At the same time, its inhabitants are a powerful people…." (Numbers 13: 27 – 28)

The Enterprise is a journey to the Promised Land. Indeed milk and honey flow here. At the same time, it is occupied by the Anakims, that is very powerful demons. In the name of Jesus I will conquer. I came, I saw and in the name of Jesus I conquered.

Blind leaders

"They are blind leaders of the blind and if one blind person leads another both will fall into a pit." (Matthew 15: 14)

Who are the blind leading the blind? Many journalists today are blind leaders leading the blind. Many pretend that are guardian of public morality. But in fact their self-interest is evident and it betrays their pretension. They act as if they are neutral and unbiased commentators in the public domain but in fact are narrow minded with entrenched self-interest. The recent attacks on Pope Benedict XVI are vile and selfish. They want to silence him and thought they found a good cause in the so-called sexual abuse of minors which they claim occurred over a generation ago. They will not succeed in intimidating him. They win this game with politicians. Pope Benedict is not a politician.

The humility of Moses

"Is Moses the only one through whom Yahweh has spoken? Has he not spoken with us too? Now Moses was extremely humble, the humblest man on earth." (Numbers 12: 2 – 3)

The trials and tribulations of Moses

Even Aaron and Miriam joined the rebels. They became part of the problem and not the solution.

Those that ate with me raised their heels to strike me. Moses allowed God to fight for him. God was the guardian of his rights. Moses exemplified the leadership principle. The leader is a servant and not a master.
