Morning Star – Good News for August 6

6 08 2009

2 Peter 1:16-19

Beloved, We did not follow cleverly devised myths when we made known to you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but we had been eyewitnesses of his majesty. For he received honor and glory from God the Father when that unique declaration came to him from the majestic glory, “This is my Son, my beloved, with whom I am well pleased.”

We ourselves heard this voice come from heaven while we were with him on the holy mountain. Moreover, we possess the prophetic message that is altogether reliable. You will do well to be attentive to it, as to a lamp shining in a dark place, until day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts.

The Daily Path: God does talk to us. I know this to be true because He has spoken to me. I wasn’t on a mountain top nor have I heard a booming voice. The first time I was alone driving in a car. The other two times I was at Mass. I didn’t hear an audible voice. I felt His words in the form of inspiration.

I like Peter’s analogy of God’s message as “the morning star rising in your heart.” For me that was very much the way it happened. The long darkness in my life slowly gave way to the light of dawn. His words through inspiration was indeed my morning star.

Room to Chat: Lord, allow Bob to once again hear your message.
