Thereare times when we doubt God. We cannot deny this. Whatever challenges we encounter, whether troubling hardships or witness to the deepest of suffering, we may ask, 'Where is God in troubled times?' But have no doubt. In the second reading, Jesus’ disciples did not believe in the ministry of Jesus. What does he have to do to convince them? Jesus knows; he must make visible his mission through miracles. Here, he turns water into wine and the disciples begin to believe.
Now, how about sin? “Children, be on your guard against idols” (1 Jn 5:21). God loves us most deeply and will protect us against temptations and the many evils which life is plagued with. Let us have faith in this. When we call out to God, God will hear us. Let us have confidence in this.
In the Responsorial Psalm, notice how there are several words of motivation and positivity: sing, praise, exult, victory, joy. In loving God and singing a song of praise of worship, the Lord takes delight in his people.
