I Chose You

This is why I chose you to be the instrument of our heavenly messages, so that the world will see how prevailing is the Divine Will that wants to be manifested only through the weak. (Jesus) (February 17, 1964)

Today’s Readings: It was not you who chose me, but I who chose you
and appointed you to go and bear fruit that will remain,
so that whatever you ask the Father in my name he may give you.
This I command you: love one another. (John 15)

Prayer Meditation- Lord, You chose us! If we spend some time to really meditate on this it can’t help but blow us away. You chose us- not because of anything wonderful about us or our achievements or our status in this world. You choose the weak to confound the strong, not the other way around. (1 Corinthians 1:27). And the amazing thing is that we can fall and we can fail and we can totally blow it and we can still rest in the blessed assurance that You have not taken back Your choice. We are weak and we are no surprise to You! Lord to be messengers in this age of darkness- to bring the Kingdom of Your Divine Will on Earth is something given to the little ones. Those who come to You like St. Therese like a little child. So let us come to You as children- repent of anything that has gotten in the way of our total dependence on You, Abba Father, because the Kingdom has been hidden from those who are wise in this world and revealed to the little ones. (Matthew 11:25).
