“He who trusts in My mercy will not perish, for all his affairs are Mine, and his enemies will be shattered at the base of My footstool.” (Diary, 723)
How beautiful is the promise that Jesus made! He always keeps His word. Sometimes we meet people whose words cannot be trusted. We might then think of the words of Jesus in the same light as those said by the people who let us down. But He does not disappoint. Some might make promises which we know cannot be trusted. The Lord Jesus reveals the future – all of his enemies (all the demons, all the sins, and all the hopelessness) are crushed at His feet.
Let us look at what the promise brings, as it declares the triumph of Divine mercy. Christ invites you to participate in His victory through trust. God has a good plan for your life. In the Book of Jeremiah the Lord says: “For I know the plans I have for you – declares the Lord – plans to make you prosper and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.” (Jeremiah 29:11-13) If you heard that God has a good plan for your life and He wants you to be happy, some questions remain: how will it happen? How will this plan be realized?
“Trust only Me, rest in Me, give in completely to Me. I work miracles in proportion to your devotion to Me and your detachment from your own thoughts”
When the Archangel Gabriel came to Mary and revealed to her God’s plan, she asked “How will this be?” (Luke 1:34) The Archangel answered “The Holy Spirit will come on you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you.” (Luke 1:35) In other words, he told Her: Trust! Let yourself be guided! There is Someone Who looks after You.
Submit and obey, and you will see great things! Maria trusted and this led to the most beautiful miracle in the history of the universe!
