Lamentations 1:18 The Lord is in the right,

for I have rebelled against his word;

but hear, all you peoples,

  and behold my suffering;

my young women and young men

  have gone into captivity.

I call on you to be faithful, but if you are really of me, then how can your heart not break when so many of my children are harmed by sins that are not theirs? There are as many as 30 million people held in captivity, in human bondage or enslavement, in the world today. They suffer because economic conditions or violence at home pushed them there, or because farms in neighboring countries profit more with child labor, or for many other reasons related to the sins of greed and violence. Today I ask you to hold my pain with me for my beloved children in captivity today. I ask you to explore how to participate in their liberation.

Mark 4:21-22 He said to them, “Is a lamp brought in to be put under the bushel basket, or under the bed, and not on the lampstand? For there is nothing hidden, except to be disclosed; nor is anything secret, except to come to light.”

——–

When my Son said these words, he was honoring that my light, the light of the Holy Spirit, dwells in YOU. The world may try to hide your light or tell you that you do not radiate with my light. But hiding things, keeping secrets, that is a tool of evil. Efforts to diminish your radiance are a tool of evil. Today I invite you to notice where my light shines in you. And if you are feeling brave and particularly faithful, notice where it shines in the people who frustrate you…who has told them their light is dim, so that they seek to diminish yours? My hope is that all my children will recognize your divine light so you can recognize each other’s.

Job 10:2-3 I will say to God, Do not condemn me;

  let me know why you contend against me.

Does it seem good to you to oppress,

  to despise the work of your hands

 and favour the schemes of the wicked?

———–

My faithful child Job asked a question that so many of my children have asked: why do the good suffer and the evil prevail? So often my children cry out to me, “Where are you in the face of this injustice?” And over and over I say, “I am there. I am there because I have sent you, and I made you in my image.” Job had gone through life being a good and decent person in his own spaces. He had not noticed how those around him suffered despite being good. This was a critical part of his journey to grow closer to me. Today I invite you to ask yourself where you witness the schemes of the wicked prevailing, and which other people also made in my image you can join with to resist their schemes.

2 Peter 1:5-8 For this very reason, you must make every effort to support your faith with goodness, and goodness with knowledge, and knowledge with self-control, and self-control with endurance, and endurance with godliness, and godliness with mutual affection, and mutual* affection with love. For if these things are yours and are increasing among you, they keep you from being ineffective and unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.

———————

Today I want you to write out a chart: faith← goodness← knowledge←- self-control←- endurance←- godliness←- mutual affection←- love.Each is undergirded by the one before it. And note that my servant wrote “increasing among you,” not just within you. This is a guide for your community. I want you to write what it would look like for love to manifest in your community right now, and how that would lead to mutual affection, to godliness, to endurance, to self-control, to knowledge, to goodness and ultimately to faith. And then I want you to write down your role in helping those things happen. You are a critical part of building my realm here on earth. May you be strengthened for that work today.

1 Kings 3:7-9 And now, O Lord my God, you have made your servant king in place of my father David, although I am only a little child; I do not know how to go out or come in.And your servant is in the midst of the people whom you have chosen, a great people, so numerous they cannot be numbered or counted. Give your servant therefore an understanding mind to govern your people, able to discern between good and evil; for who can govern this your great people?’

——————–

When my son David’s reign was over, his son Solomon, all of 20 years old, inherited the throne. His beginnings, like his father’s, were humble and seeking of my counsel. He knew that when someone is in charge of a people, they should be overwhelmed by the task and responsibility of caring for those many people’s wellbeing. It saddens me deeply that my son Solomon could not retain that wisdom. Today I ask you to pray for leaders in your midst, that they might ground themselves in humility for your sake, for my sake, and for the sake of those entrusted to their care. Seek also that same humility for those entrusted to your care, for I have entrusted you with responsibility for many now and in the future.

A weekly love note from God based on scriptures from every book in the Bible, written by Sandhya.

Judges 6:7-10 When the Israelites cried to the Lord on account of the Midianites, the Lord sent a prophet to the Israelites; and he said to them, ‘Thus says the Lord, the God of Israel: I led you up from Egypt, and brought you out of the house of slavery; and I delivered you from the hand of the Egyptians, and from the hand of all who oppressed you, and drove them out before you, and gave you their land; and I said to you, “I am the Lord your God; you shall not pay reverence to the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you live.” But you have not given heed to my voice.’

Sometimes I am described as a jealous God. What I seek, though, is for you to follow a path of love and faithfulness, because that is as intricately connected to liberation as my leading you out of Egypt. When you worship the gods of the lands around you, you also adopt practices that are in opposition to my way of love and faithfulness. Follow me and stay free. Today I invite you to think on the gods in the land where you live, and how to stay free of them.

A weekly love note from God based on scriptures from every book in the Bible, written by Sandhya.

Colossians 2:2-3 I want their hearts to be encouraged and united in love, so that they may have all the riches of assured understanding and have the knowledge of God’s mystery, that is, Christ himself, in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.

The author of the letter to the church in Colossae wanted people who had never met him to even so feel encouraged and connected to Jesus Christ. Likewise it is my longing that you can connect to my Son, the source of wisdom and knowledge. My love is greater than you can comprehend and bigger than anything you can imagine. But through my Son you can get a glimpse of how big love can be. Today, think of the mysteries you want to unravel. Turn to Jesus and ask him to point you towards the answers you seek for the sake of doing my will.
