YOUR SATISFACTION CONSISTS

IN CONFORMING TO DIVINE WILL

Part 2 of 5 CS-80 12-Nov-97

Jesus

10

Now, in order to be ready to carry out the Divine Will,

you must first make the offer to receive in peace and with resignation

all that the Father ordains and demands of you.

Take King David as an example;

he used to say: “Lord, my heart is willing…”

By saying those words he would only be asking that God teach him

how to comply with His Will.

This is how he merited being called,

“the man after My own Heart,” by God:

“I have found a man after My own Heart

who will fulfill My Will in everything.”

11

I hear a great number of people saying:

I fulfilled Your Will today Lord;

do this; do that; do this favor for us, etc.

I also hear a smaller group telling Me:

“Do what You will. Your Will be done…"

The former group, as well as the latter is steadfast,

fixed in the thoughts that they have, in the love that they have.

The former group believes, but they love little;

those in the latter group believe much and love much.

12

I have taught you Myself to ask for your daily bread,

and under the name of “bread”

I meant everything that is necessary for your lives.

Therefore, it will not be Me who says, “Do not ask for anything,”

because it is good that you ask,

even for material things for several reasons.

But there is a great difference between asking and being petulant.

13

Asking is being humble;

acting petulant, aside from being a demonstration of great self-love,

is to believe that I am hard and insensitive.

To keep repeating the same petition is to ultimately think of oneself,

forgetting that I think about you more than you do yourselves.

14

Ask for bread, not precisely for the kind of bread that you want,

but to acknowledge that I am the “baker”

and that you have need of Me,

be it when things are prosperous or when they are adverse.

It is better to remain calm than to live with anxiety;

it is best to believe in My love than to hope in My love.

He who loves Me knows that I do not fail,

that I do not delay in giving him everything.

He who loves Me little,

always feels as if the ground under his feet had been removed,

and so he suffers.
