CHRIST MESSAGE TODAY
Do not be troubled if you are visited by evil tendencies or strange imaginings. Keep your resolutions firm and your intention clear before Me. You are not suffering from illusions, even though at one moment you are full of spiritual desires and joy, and then shortly afterwards you are back in your foolish ways. Some of your defects are to be borne patiently for My sake. I will not hold them against you. In fact, they bring you great merit as long as you are truly displeased with them and refuse to consent to them.
I permit the devil to wander over the earth. He is continually trying to kill your desire for Me. He tries in many different ways to draw you away from every holy exercise. He can hurt you only if you follow his suggestions. In his attempts to draw you away from Me, he studies you to see where you are weakest.
Satan suggests evil thoughts to cause weariness or despair in you. He would like to draw you away from all prayer, holy reading, or any good work. He dreads seeing anyone make a humble confession. If he could he would stop you from receiving Me in Holy Communion. And yet, in spite of his frantic and constant efforts against you, he is helpless if you decide to stand by Me, with faith, hope and love.
Despise the enemy, and fear him not. Fix your attentions on your daily occupations. Follow My words in your daily life. Seek grace and inspirations by prayer and meditation. Think often of My life. Honor My saints. Recall and detest your sins. Watch over your desires, thoughts, and intentions. Make your resolutions, renew them often, and do your best to follow them. Trust in My wisdom and love for the rest.
After reading this in my Daily Bread Book, it really open my eyes and my heart.
Even though at one moment you are full of spiritual desires and joy, and then shortly afterwards you are back in your foolish ways. This is always happen to me. After a while i am really aware where i stand and my life is for Him and in Him alone. But after that, i am back to my old self again. Sinner. Repeating the same mistakes and attitudes that disobey His will. Now i realize that, it is happen but when i firmly standing in Jesus Christ, have faith in Him, i will not fall into my old self again. When i am renewed, i grow in my relationship with Christ. I feel His presence in my daily life.
He studies you to see where you are weakest. That is what satan did to draw me away from my Lord. No wonder, the great temptation is always through the weakest part of me/myself.
IN JESUS NAME I PRAY
Father of Light, when my mind is over clouded with confusion or anxieties, grant me the light of Your grace, so that i may fix my eyes on Your truth and walk safely toward Heaven. In Your church I will seek Your guidance as You desire me to do. All the powers of hell are helpless against me, if I will only be wise enough to seek Your truth and use the strength of Your holy Sacraments. Amen.
