God is Present
 
 
June 27, 2021
Fifth Sunday of Pentecost
 
"God is Present...In Faith"
 
Scriptures: 
Lamentations 3:22-33     Psalm 30
2 Corinthians 8:7-15       Mark 5:21-43
 

The Steadfast love of the Lord never ceases and the writer of Lamentations lifts us the reality that God is faithful “Great is your faithfulness” and that “God does not willingly afflict anyone.” In Mark’s story a girl restored to Life and a woman healed. We begin with Jairus (synagogue leader) begs Jesus for help with his daughter who is dying and Jesus goes to help. On his way they are in a large crowd and a woman who had been hemorrhaging for years touches his cloak and is healed (Immediately). After an exchange Jesus proclaims that the woman’s faith “made her well”. Jesus travels on to the girl, that everyone thinks is dead. Jesus tells every one “do not fear, only believe” and calls her to get up as if she is just sleeping. The girl gets up immediately. Mark and Lamentations teach us about the presence of God in faith itself and how that presence can transform our world.

Daily Devotion
Monday, June 21, 2021

Psalm 107:28-31 “Then they cried to the Lord in their trouble, and he brought them out from their distress, he made the storm be still, and the waves of the sea were hushed. Then they were glad because they had quiet, and he brought them to their desired haven. Let them thank the Lord for his steadfast love, for his wonderful works to humankind.” They were at “their wits end” when they felt the storm was to overtake them. The power of God was so evident that he commanded the stormy seas to arise and when they cried to the Lord, “he made the storm be still.” The Psalmist is using the situation so familiar to the people of the time. Many depended on the seas and oceans for survival and knew the dangers of storms. He wanted them to relate and hear his message. Praise to the one God who is in control of our lives and who is with us continually through the storms we endure. He calms our storms with understanding and grace. Prayer: God on High, continue to bless and keep us through the turbulent storms we may encounter. We must have trust in you and follow your lead to glory. Amen
