Monday of the Fourteenth Week in Ordinary Time

When Jesus arrived at the official’s house and saw the flute players and the crowd who were making a commotion, he said, “Go away! 
The girl is not dead but sleeping.” 
And they ridiculed him. 
When the crowd was put out, he came and took her by the hand, and the little girl arose.  
And news of this spread throughout all that land.  
- Matthew 9:23-26

One obvious thing this reveals to us is that Jesus does have complete power over the physical world and all the laws of nature.  

We are reminded in this story that He is the Creator of the Universe and the source of all that is.  
If He can create all things by simply willing it, He can easily recreate and transform the laws of nature by His will.

Understanding the full truth of His complete authority over nature should also give us confidence in His complete authority over the spiritual world and everything that makes up our lives.  
He can do all things and can do all things easily.  

If we can arrive at a deep faith in His almighty power, and also arrive at a clear understanding of His perfect love and perfect knowledge of us, we will be in a position to trust Him on a level we never knew possible.  

Why would we not completely trust Him who can do all things and loves us perfectly?
Why would we not trust Him who knows everything about us and desires only our good?  

We should trust Him! He is worthy of that trust, and our trust will unleash His almighty power in our lives.

Reflect, this Monday of the fourteenth week in ordinary Time July 4, 2022, upon two things.  

First, do you understand the depth of His power?  
Second, do you know that His love compels Him to use that power for your good?  

Knowing and believing these truths will change your life and allow Him to perform miracles of grace.

Lord of all power and love, 
I do believe in Your absolute authority over all things and 
Your complete authority over my life.  
Help me to trust in You and 
to trust in Your love for me.  
Jesus, I do trust in You.
