Daily Devotion Holy Tuesday, April 15

Tuesday, April 15, 2014 – Psalm 91; Lamentations 1:17-22; 2 Corinthians 1:8-22 and Mark 11:27-33

2 Corinthians 1:8-22 – 17Was I vacillating when I wanted to do this? Do I make my plans according to ordinary human standards, ready to say “Yes, yes” and “No, no” at the same time? 18As surely as God is faithful, our word to you has not been “Yes and No.” 19For the Son of God, Jesus Christ, whom we proclaimed among you, Silvanus and Timothy and I, was not “Yes and No”; but in him it is always “Yes.” 20For 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.

What I hear today in this reading is God saying one thing to us and that one thing is YES!

How many times in our lives? How many times in a day do we hear us or others saying to us, NO. No you are not worthy. No you are not good enough. No.

Today and in preparation for our remembering Jesus’ death and resurrection, hear God saying unto you; YES! Yes you are worthy. Yes you are mine. Yes I love you. Yes. Yes. Yes.

O God, thanks for shouting your YES unto the whole world. May Your yes help guide us in our living this very day. Amen.

Psalm 91 – 1   You who live in the shelter of the Most High,
who abide in the shadow of the Almighty,
2   will say to the LORD, “My refuge and my fortress;
my God, in whom I trust.”
3   For he will deliver you from the snare of the fowler
and from the deadly pestilence;
4   he will cover you with his pinions,
and under his wings you will find refuge;
his faithfulness is a shield and buckler.

Mother/Father eagle continues to sit upon the nest. Eaglets should hatch near the end of the month. Tonight it got down to 28 degrees.It was good that mom or dad was sheltering the egg(s) under their wings and covering them with their pinions. This is what our Father in Heaven does for us.

O God, cover us in the shadow of thy wings. Amen.
