Similar Reflections


"Shout with joy for Jacob, exult at the head of the nations; proclaim your praise and say: The Lord has delivered His people." —Jeremiah 31:7

For years your daughter has had severe problems, which have been caused by the devil himself. You have tried everything, but to no avail. Finally, in desperation, you cry out to Jesus: "Lord, Son of David, have pity on me!" (Mt 15:22) Do you believe that your daughter can be completely delivered and healed?

For thirty-nine years you have been in exile in Babylon. Your nation has been destroyed. You have no army or power. Do you believe that within a year you can be dancing back home, "carrying your festive tambourines"? (Jer 31:4)

You have spent years praying for the downfall of the culture of death and for a new civilization of life. Yet it seems all for naught, as the culture has grown even more pagan. You promote the truth and the faith, yet it seems that many in the modern secular culture are more committed to falsehood than orthodox Christians to the truth. Do you believe the Lord can quickly change this situation?

The Lord can do the impossible quickly by His sovereign power. God can give us an impossible victory at any moment. "Trust in Him at all times" (Ps 62:9).

Prayer: Father, do more than I can ask or imagine (Eph 3:20).
Promise: "With age-old love I have loved you; so I have kept My mercy toward you." —Jer 31:3
Praise: St. John actively fought the devil, the apathy of his people, and personal frustrations through vigilance, prayer, and fasting. He prayed: "I love You, Lord, and the only grace I ask is to love You eternally."
