What Will It Take?

“Jesus began to reproach the towns where most of his mighty deeds had been done, since they had not repented. ‘Woe to you, Chorazin! Woe to you, Bethsaida! For if the mighty deeds done in your midst had been done in Tyre and Sidon, they would long ago have repented in sackcloth and ashes.” -Mt. 11:20-21

You and I ask God for many things everyday, which is good. It is good to come to Our Lord with our needs and petitions. Too often, however, we expect God to act as our genie in granting all we ask, when we ask it, and how we want it. The truth is that God is constantly at work in our lives, doing “mighty deeds,” but not always in the ways we ask or expect, or on our timelines. Our faith and trust in Him must not depend on whether or not we feel He’s answered our prayers on any given day. With humility, let us always remember how far and above God’s ways are beyond our human ones, and let us trust in Him because of the faithful love He has shown us through His Son, Our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Jesus, we believe and we trust in You. +
