Hosea 2:16-18, 21-22; Psalm 145; Matthew 9:18-26
In the first reading, the Lord was speaking through the mouth of the Prophet Hosea about his relationship with his people. On the basis of this love the Lord declared his intention to marry Israel for ever. Thus, he will never abandon his people. The gospel further illustrates this eternal love in the restoration of the life of the little girl and the healing of the woman who had suffered from hemorrhage for twelve years. God never abandoned his people. Sorrow may last for years, or it may last for a night but as long as we refuse to give up; he shall raise us up. More grace for the race!
PRAY THESE WORDS LOUD AND CLEAR
I am a divine project! Not to be abandoned, I am a contract to my God for He will never abandon me. The plans of God for my life must surely be accomplished. I put my trust in God and I say to myself, when men say there is a casting down, I will say there is a lifting up in my life and destiny in Jesus name Amen.
