Weekly Devotional Helps, August 3-9

Updated: Aug 16, 2020

“What is my limit?” This is a question that I am sure you have asked yourself many times in life. We are always trying to push ourselves, but there is a point where we can do no better. I could only run so fast or throw a ball so far. We know there are limits for every person. We might take that knowledge and assume that those limits apply to God as well. When we do such a thing, we dismiss the fact that He is all-powerful (omnipotent). Our Savior bid Peter to walk on the water with Him, and Peter began to walk on the water. Peter looked down and did not believe that his Master could keep him above the waves. We are not called to walk on water, but we are called to believe and do what He commands. As we look to His Word and Sacraments, may we believe and trust in Him alone.

From The Daily Prayers- Evening Prayer- I thank You, my heavenly Father, through Jesus Christ, Your dear Son, that You have graciously kept me this day; and I pray that You would forgive me all my sins where I have done wrong, and graciously keep me this night. For into Your hands I commend myself, my body and soul, and all things. Let Your holy angel be with me, that the evil foe may have no power over me. Amen. (Kindergarten +)
