FOR THURSDAY  TODAY’S SCRIPTURE READING: 2 Corinthians 1:12-22

“For in him every one of God’s promises is a “Yes.”  For this reason it is through him that we say the “Amen,” to the glory of God.” (2 Corinthians 1:20; New Revised Standard Version)

God squashingThrough the years, I’ve heard so many people describe God in a negative way. Somehow they have gotten the idea that God is nothing but a great big NO – squashing any fun in life, filling our hearts with shame, not letting us do what we want to do.

Yet, according to this passage “every one of God’s promises is a “Yes.” Have you ever heard the saying: “Whenever a door closes in our life, God opens a window for us”? Focus your mind today on all the truths of God which exclaim “YES” – love, joy, peace, kindness, hope and healing.  Let your day be “stamped with the Yes of Jesus” (The Message).

PRAYER: Open the windows of my soul, Loving Lord, so that the life-giving winds of your healing Spirit may enter in.  Amen.
