As we share in God’s work, we urge you not to receive the grace of God in vain.  – 2 Cor 6:1

Reflection. Concentrating on God’s love and protection can help prevent undue psychological anxiety.  Rejoicing because of the knowledge of God’s love is in itself a kind of exorcism.  St. Paul knew that anxiety does not flourish in the atmosphere of joy.  He prescribes joy as a means of banishing anxiety.  Our faith in the reality of God’s love is of great benefit in healing and liberating the fearful spirit.

Prayer. Holy Spirit, You dwell within me.  You are truly my partner in the journey of life.  Let me feel the joy of You living deep within me.
