God allows difficulties in His children’s lives so that they may trust Him further and bring them closer to Him - Daily Bible Reflections October 24,2015

WAKE UP CALL
 
“But if you do not repent, you will all perish as they did!” – Luke 13:5
 
       Two compelling videos made the rounds in Facebook immediately after super typhoon Yolanda. One was about a 2010 prophecy by Sadhu Selvaraj titled, “Warning, Punishment and Judgment for the Philippines If the Country Does Not Return to God.” The second tied up the Bohol earthquake and typhoon Yolanda to the prophecies declared at the April 2013 National Prayer Gathering at the Cuneta Astrodome. It further warned that a deadly disease causing the body to rot would originate from Pangasinan.
       These videos talking about God’s anger for the wicked ways of the land and the call for repentance initially scared me. Did God single out the Philippines to destroy? But come to think of it, we have always been reminded since St. John the Baptist’s time to remain faithful to God’s Word, turn away from our evil, and repent. Do we need calamities, tragedies or videos of modern-day prophecies for a wake-up call?
       God is merciful and not vindictive. But this should not push us to complacency where we become another Sodom and Gomorrah ripe enough to be destroyed. Marie Franco (mariefranco_pie@yahoo.com)
 
Reflection: God allows difficulties in His children’s lives so that they may trust Him further and bring them closer to Him.
 
Father God, send Your guardian angels and the Holy Spirit so that we shall always be guided in our ways and be faithful to You.
 
St. Anthony Mary Claret, bishop, pray for us.
