How much do you trust God? Do you let God be God? - Daily Bible Reflections December 5, 2014

Jesus said to them, “Do you believe that I can do this?” – Matthew 9:28
       Why did Jesus have to ask this question? Why didn’t He just go about healing the two blind men? He probably wanted to see if the two had faith — a living faith founded on trust. We may say that we believe that Jesus can do this and that for us, but do we act on that belief? Do we trust that He will deliver? Believing does not automatically mean trusting. Think about it.
       Jesus told St. Maria Faustina in different occasions (as recorded in her diary of her soul’s encounter with Jesus as the Divine Mercy): “The graces of My mercy are drawn by means of one vessel only, and that is — trust. Tell them that no soul that has called upon My mercy has been disappointed or brought to shame. I delight particularly in a soul which has placed its trust in My goodness.” Jesus also mentioned that “sins of distrust wound Me most painfully.”
       The two blind men cried, “Son of David, have pity on us!” We too can cry out to Jesus and ask for His mercy, which He freely gives to those who ask Him with complete trust. Judith Concepcion (svp_jmc@yahoo.com)
Reflection: How much do you trust God? Do you let God be God?
Lord, have mercy on me. “Not my will but yours be done” (Luke 22:42).
St. Sabas, pray for us.
