Thought of the Day February 28 Trusting in God

By 11:32 AM

"Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth." How do we begin to grow in the virtue of meekness? Meek people begin by trusting God. They truly believe that God will work for them and vindicate them when others oppose them. Biblical meekness is rooted in the deep conviction of the words of St Paul “If God is for us, who can be against us.” Next, because meek people trust the Lord, they choose to entrust everything to him—their jobs, their struggles , their relationships, their strengths and weaknesses, their fears, their frustrations. They hand everything to him as the Lord of their lives. They acknowledge that of themselves they can do nothing, but in him all things are possible.
