Today’s Consuming Fire
Meditation- – A Daily Dose of the Flame of Love Diary Served Up with Today’s
Feast of Saint Phillip and James
Do We Still Do Not Know Him?
“Elizabeth, a long time ago, when you did not think of Me, I was always there. I kept you from falling on the icy and slippery road of life. At that time, you did not believe that I was protecting you from so many falls. I was watching closely each footstep you were taking.” (Jesus) (January 26, 1966)
Today’s Readings: Philip said to him, “Master, show us the Father, and that will be enough for us. “Jesus said to him, “Have I been with you for so long a time and you still do not know me, Philip? Whoever has seen me has seen the Father. How can you say, ‘Show us the Father’? Do you not believe that I am in the Father and the Father is in me? (John 14)
Prayer Meditation: Lord, so often we are like Philip. We can even be believers trying to follow You earnestly and still not get it! Because seeing You is seeing The Father- The Good Good Father who not only watches over us but directs our steps even while we make our plans and think we are so in control (Proverbs 16:9). Even when we do not know it, You have been there all along protecting us from so many falls. Lord increase our faith and our trust today so that we can say with confidence that You are God alone and we will love You with all of our heart, soul, mind and strength! (Deuteronomy 6).
