Translation: “Faith makes us stronger”

 

We are living vehicles of the living God

The man without God can even succeed in his life, be charitable, achieve all the goals he sets himself, have an exemplary family, be a good husband, a good wife, a good son, a good mother.

But deep down, when the mind is silent , when all the worries seem to have ceased and there remains only that solitude that makes us think in the sense of our own existence, what does the soul say?What’s the point of getting out of bed each day and moving on? What will remain at the end of our journey? And what awaits us after the end? Total annihilation? Another life, a new chance? It is in these moments that it becomes inevitable to think of God.

The human soul cries out for the return to the presence of the Father, from which we have been deprived by the action of sin . Culture tries to build, but it is not in myths, statues, half-man gods, half-livestock or mere philosophies. To know God we have to first discover that He lives in us and to know that this presence is given by grace.

It is simply and wonderfully just this: God is present and alive in us . We are the temple of the Holy Spirit. We are living vehicles of the living God.

The Lord bless you!

Translation: Faith makes us stronger

Our speaking with God is our prayer

God is in front of you and when you speak He hears you. Do not restrict yourself from the Lord, for He is the one who can give you happiness. Do not forget that God will give you what is necessary, because He is a jealous God and does not want to lose you, but He does not give you beyond what is necessary.

We ourselves have created the great obstacles in our lives . But the promise of God is great, for the Lord says that when we seek Him, we find Him. But we must seek Him, we can not sit and wait for Him to come to us.

True hope is based on the revelation of the Word of God. God made good plans for His people, bringing them peace and hope.

We can not live with illusion! To be a Christian is to be a witness of God. The Word and prayer go together. It is necessary to be disciplined and it is necessary to leave the sin to find God.

Often we think it is useless to talk to God. Our speaking with God is our prayer . The only language God understands is prayer. Our work is sanctified, but it is not enough to make an the offering to God, we must pray. And what is prayer? It is to stop, to give God time each day.

We must have our thoughts on God. Your love for God is the size of your gratitude . If you are grateful to God you may know that love is great in you; but if you are ungrateful to the Lord, still He will continue to love you.

To pray is to unite with God, so if you do not pray, you will remain alone. Prayer is not a trade with God, because the Lord does not allow us to stay in the background in our lives.

The Lord bless you!

Translation: The Faith Makes Us Stronger

The only hope that proves effective is that which we place on the Creator
The human being can not live without hope. There are individual hopes that reflect our more specific yearnings; reflect the needs contained in our personal biography. There are also collective hopes, which are the ones that make us try to build a better world, that lead us to follow this or that philosophy, to join this or that group of activists or volunteers. But one thing is certain: if our hopes are grounded in a faith in man, the result is one – frustration. The only hope that proves effective and guaranteed in its results is that which we place on the Creator, the Father; in the Savior, Jesus; in the Comforter, the Holy Spirit – in the One and Triune God. Today is a day of renewing our hope in Jesus. Shall we do this together? The Lord bless you!

God always comes to our rescue
I have been impressed by the figure of Abraham in the Bible: the man who lives constantly with the God of the impossible. He has learned God’s way to the point of no longer doubting his promises. He came to call the place where the Lord spared His son from the death of “The Lord will provide,” such was the confidence in His help. Abraham not only believed in the existence of God, but tried to be His friend.

This is how it is with us: we live by experiencing the Lord daily in our lives and when we feel need, He comes to our rescue.

I see that, in the present day, God helps in the same way: in this time of crisis and necessity, miracles happens. In your life the God of the impossible will also provide, because He acts, just that we put ourselves into action, doing our part. The Lord bless you!

Translation: Faith Makes Us Stronger

God acts in all situations of our life, in fact, He takes care of us!

When we decide to follow Jesus, many persecute us. We do not need to fear those who persecute us, those who are against God, for these, as we know, are our declared “enemies.”

We must fear those who sit at table with us, go to Mass and spend all our time with us as “friends”, but they are false, the “false masters”, who poison us little by little.

It is good to know that a simple book can be a great richness for our life. Books God uses himself to prepare us well in every aspect of our life. They prepare us and enable us to live the way of thegood. Alone we can not do it; with our family and with our friends we will not be able to, but with the Word of God it is possible. Let’s make a proposal on this day. Take a Bible passage and meditate on it during the day. You will see that wonderful experience bears fruit. May the Lord bless you!

Translation: “Faith makes us stronger.”

As Christians we must always pray, and our body demands prayer of us.
Why did Jesus tell his disciples about the need to pray always? It is because we have a  great weakness that leads us to sin. It is enough for God not to do what we are asking, because we already stopped praying. We do not understand the divine will for our lives.


Blessed is the one who has the ability to place himself in the hands of the Lord and say, “Here I am, let it be done to me according to His will.” However, we have our wants and desires and we end up putting our needs above the divine will for our lives. Therefore, prayer is necessary, that we may do the will of the Lord; and prayer is our great wealth.

It is in prayer that our intimacy with God happens, with him we have free access.

It is necessary to pray always and with perseverance, although, God does not answer to us at once, because we are often, in a hurry, and with this we reap green fruit. God has mercy on all, He administrates in time.The recognition of divine wisdom implies absolute submission. To have freedom with God we must understand that He is sovereign and we can never exercise His role.


Praise, awareness of the benefits received, requires gratitude and praise. In prayer, we must recognize ourselves as sinners. Let us draw near to God, recognizing our indigence, and supplicate our needs before Him. The humility of our heart and our supplication draw us closer to the Lord.


How often we are hurt and need to reach God asking for deliverance, because we go through difficulties that we do not understand. We must ask the Lord to pour a balm on our hearts.


It is important to welcome the divine response, the inspirations, the feelings that come to us in prayer and the experiences of the virtues, because God speaks to us through our prayer, through our good thoughts. The divine response always comes with love.


As Christians it is necessary to pray always and our body demands prayer of us. We must ask for what we need, for in the spiritual life we ​​can do nothing alone. We need to be insistent, asking, crying out to God to come to our rescue.
May the Lord bless you!
