2 Kings 19, Psalm 156 & 136, Hosea 12, Hebrews 1

Long ago, at many times and in many ways, God spoke to our fathers by the prophets, but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed the heir of all things, through whom also he created the world. He is the radiance of the glory of God and the exact imprint of his nature, and he upholds the universe by the word of his power. After making purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high, having become as much superior to angels as the name he has inherited is more excellent than theirs.  Hebrews 1

God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit….speaking to us in different ways throughout time.  He uses people, prophets, his word and the whispers of the Holy Spirit to communicate with us his will and his plans.

But who am I, O Lord that you are mindful of me? Who am I that you would hear my prayers, that you would reach down and comfort my soul? Jesus, as Hezekiah spread out the letter before the Lord and poured out his heart in his darkest moment, may we be so bold to bring our hearts desires, hopes, dreams and supplications to you. Just as Hezekiah sought wise council, listened to the appointed prophet and turned to you, may we be brave to turn off the distractions and voices surrounding us that pull us away from you. For you have made a way for us to approach your throne of grace with confidence without the need of intercessors. You alone, Jesus tore the veil making it possible to have a direct connection with the God of the universe who created it all. Again, Lord, who am I that you are mindful of me?

 Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good,
    for his steadfast love endures forever.
Give thanks to the God of gods,
    for his steadfast love endures forever.
Give thanks to the Lord of lords,
    for his steadfast love endures forever Psalm 136

Thank you, Father for sacrificing your Son to be the propitiation for our sins. For suffering the ultimate disgrace and pain to make a way for me, a wretched sinner undeserving but ever so grateful for your grace. Help me to never lose my awe of the beauty and power of the cross of Christ. Amen.
