Dn 7:9-10, 13-14
Rv 12:7-12ab
Ps 138:1-2ab,2cde-3, 4-5
Jn 1:47-51

"His dominion is an everlasting dominion that shall not be taken away; his kingship shall not be destroyed."
- Dn 7:14

God’s power, grace, and kindness are demonstrated in this reading.  When he descends from heaven to claim his kingdom, his power is embraced by all and respected because of his grace.  God’s grace shows us all the way to live without fear of deception.  His kindness endures forever in the way that he loves us- enough to save us from evil.  God is great.

This reading speaks of the war in heaven between God and Satan.  God is our Savior from the deception of Satan for all in heaven and on earth.  We are challenged every day by the evil ways of Satan in so many situations.  God is the light in our lives and we must do our best to glorify his name by living a life dedicated to God.  We all have a calling in life that God has issued us, a plan.  Satan will throw us off our path every once in awhile.  We are only human, and everyone makes mistakes.  But life is about how we respond to our mistakes.  If we fall down, we have to learn how to pick ourselves back up and get back on our path.  For no matter what we do in life, God is always there for us.  We are never alone.  Glorify God's name and live a life dedicated to God’s dominion.  For his kingship shall not be destroyed.

God also blessed us with friends and family in life.  I am so thankful for the special people I have in my life.  When I am down, I know that they are there for me.  We are not meant to walk alone in this life.  God gave us each other to work together and love one another.  Create relationships and strive to make yourself better in everything that you do.  There is nothing that we cannot figure out together.  God works through everyone around us.  All we have to do is listen to one another.
