" 'What sort of man is this,' they said, 'that even the winds and the sea obey Him?' " —Matthew 8:27

Jesus is all-knowing. "If evil befalls a city, has not the Lord caused it?" (Am 3:6) Although the good God is not the immediate cause of evil, He permits it and is aware of it. God knows everything.

Jesus is all-revealing. "Indeed, the Lord God does nothing without revealing His plan to His servants, the prophets" (Am 3:7). The all-knowing God does not keep His knowledge to Himself, but reveals His plan to us, His people.

Jesus is all-powerful. There is nothing He cannot do. For example, He can stop a violent storm with a simple command (see Mt 8:26).

Jesus is all-loving. He wants us to know what's happening so we can have victory in all circumstances. He cares about us because He loves us.

Because Jesus is all-knowing, all-revealing, all-powerful, and all-loving, we can be all-secure in His love and all-victorious over sin and Satan.

"Yet in all this we are more than conquerors because of Him Who has loved us. For I am certain that neither death nor life, neither angels nor principalities, neither the present nor the future, nor powers, neither height nor depth nor any other creature, will be able to separate us from the love of God that comes to us in Christ Jesus, our Lord" (Rm 8:37-39).

Give your "all" to the Lord, "so that God may be all in all" (1 Cor 15:28).

Prayer: Father, may I give all to enter Your kingdom (see Mt 13:44-46).
Promise: "The Lord God speaks — who will not prophesy!" —Am 3:8
Praise: Bl. Junipero Serra was untiring in his efforts to spread the gospel to distant lands.
