Thought of the Day March 1, 2018 Wait on the Lord

By 11:40 AM

As we continue our reflection on the Beatitude of meekness we realize that meek people learn to be quiet and still before the Lord waiting patiently for him to act. They recall the words of the psalm: “Be still and know that I am God.” This doesn’t mean the meek become lazy, rather they become free of anxiety and apprehension as they wait. They know in their hearts from past experiences that God is in complete control. That evil will not be ultimately victorious. Rather God will. Though Jesus was crucified, he rose from the dead. He embraced the will of the Father, he entrusted himself to the Father and waited for his victorious resurrection, the ultimate vindication of his true identity and mission.
