Scripture Reading: Psalm 107:23-24
They that go down to the sea in ships, that do business in great waters; These see the works of the LORD, and his wonders in the deep.
Reflection: The psalmist uses an analogy of sailing ships to depict how people can position themselves to see more of the glory of God and encounter his wonderful acts. Ships are sailing vessels which are noted to have the capacity to travel over the depths of oceans. There are other sailing vessels like canoes which cannot go as far as the ships can go. Thus depending on the kind of vessel you are using, you can either operate in shallow waters or go to the deep seas. Only those who travel in ships are able to witness the wonders of the deep. The Christian walk is just like the use of sea vessels. Those who position their lives to go the extra mile in their spiritual development create for themselves the vehicle to attract the glory of God in higher dimensions. When you choose to deepen your relationship with God, you are bound to encounter his wonders in life. It is time to engage yourself to pray more, study the Bible more, evangelize more and disciple the more.
Prayer: Oh Lord, help me to develop more spiritually.
Confession: I refuse a mediocre spiritual development in my life. I engage myself to pray more, study more, evangelize the more, disciple the more.
