The 4th Saturday in Lent

Of old you laid the foundation of the earth, and the heavens are the work of your hands. Psalm 102:25

After speaking of shortness of life as seen in the last verse, we come to God and His creation of the heavens and the earth.

Our afflictions are mere tiny drops on the grand scheme of God's creation.

Yet, God in His merciful love makes our afflictions His Son's afflictions to bear and overcome.

His life at every step encountered our afflictions with His healing words and touch.

His death to save us and grant us eternal life is what we look to when hit by afflictions.

We are His work, His saving work to pull us through all troubling times.

Our God that created all counts even the 1 out of 100 as worthy of His Son to bear our burdens and be with us in our afflictions.

Prayer.

Almighty God, we thank you for your creation. We thank you for all you have done for us. Help us to know you care for us, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
