Set Me Free

Today’s Consuming Fire Meditation- – A Daily Dose of the Flame of Love Diary Served Up with Today’s Scriptures

Wednesday of the Thirteenth Week of Ordinary Time

Set Me Free

“My little one, I am the country’s beggar. They refuse to give Me work. All forms of begging are forbidden in this country. I alone keep on begging. I wander without eating or drinking, from street to street, from house to house and from village to village, in the cold winter and in the heat, in the howling wind or in the heavy rain. (Jesus) (May 2, 1962)

Today’s Readings: Thereupon the whole town came out to meet Jesus, and when they saw him they begged him to leave their district. (Matthew 8)

Prayer Meditation- O Lord, You could do so much good in us if we would only let You- You could set us free of all that makes us captive, just like the demoniacs. We are all in chains, tied to  something! And even when we see the good You have done in ourselves and others; we let whatever has us in chains run us off the cliff like the swine in the Gospel. Maybe it is fear of loss of the material like the townspeople or maybe like the Prodigal son we have just not come to our senses- we are not ready for full deliverance and healing! Yet Lord You never give up on us- we beg You to leave but You beg us to open the doors of our hearts and let You in so that You can set us free!
