Day 20: Learing to Trust

Abraham and Moses against all odds relied solely on God and learned to trust in his divine will.  Through human eyes, their plans were erratic, unconventional, and foolish, but their faith allowed God to work great wonders through them.  He wants to do the same with us.  Why do we find it so difficult to trust God when He, believe it or not, trusts us?  Abandon yourself to His will like our fathers in faith, and surrender to the promptings of the Spirit.  The less we fight God, the happier we will be.

"...we are still awaiting Easter; we are not yet standing in the full light but walking toward it full of trust.”  --Benedict XVI
