In today’s Gospel Christ asks the apostles “who do you say I am?” – reflecting upon this question I realize how often I doubt who God is. I doubt His promises, His love, and His providence.
If God were to ask me this question I would truly not know how to answer. How often do I ask myself this question about God? Do I ask myself this tough question or do I try to make God fit into my own box?
When we don’t know how to respond to the question we can do two things to find the answer. First and foremost we can read Scripture, reading how God reveals Himself in the Living Word. We may also look back at our lives and see how God reveals Himself through the ways He leads and guides us on the journey.
Know that God loves you and deeply desires to reveal Himself to us. We must seek Him in Scripture and in the tapestries of our lives.
