Today’s Prayer to Passage continues within the ancient scriptures of the “Nag Hamadi”. This month’s spiritual devotion to these texts will be taking place between June 1 – June 30, 2017.
Today I pray, “Dear God, Thank You for faith and trust. And thank You for the fruitfulness of faith and trust. Amen.”
Following my prayer, I held the closed book in my hands and opened it to reveal this passage:
“When the messengers came together and fell on their knees, they prayed in this way, saying,
Father, father, father of the light,
you who possess the incorruptions, hear us,
just as you have taken pleasure
in your holy child Jesus the anointed.
For he has become for us a luminary in the darkness.
Yes, hear us.
And they resumed again and prayed, saying,
Child of life, child of immortality,
you who are in the light,
child, deathless anointed, our redeemer,
give us strength,
because they are searching for us to kill us.
Then a great light appeared, and the mountain shone from the vision of the one who appeared. And a voice called out to them, saying, “Listen to my words that I may speak to you. Why are you looking for me? I am Jesus the anointed, who is with you forever.”
The messengers answered and said, “Lord, we would like to understand the deficiency of the realms and their fullness. And how are we detained in this dwelling place? How have we come to this place? In what way shall we leave? How do we possess the authority of boldness? Why do the powers fight against us?”
Then a voice called to them from the light, saying, “You bear witness that I have said all these things to you. But because of your unbelief I shall speak again.”
—NAG HAMADI SCRIPTURES
I rest in the peace of faith and trust. The moment I first believed was the moment my miracles took place. And so, I continue to believe anew, and miracles continue to shine, thriving in light anew. I am always in the fullness of the Lord, and in God’s continued blessings. And I exist boldly. Amen.
