Who is the Persevering Assistant?
There is a very superficial idea of what perseverance is, which is to stand firm, to be constant, to not give up, but after all, in what way does God expect my perseverance? That is the big question!
“How so Luisa? It seems that sometimes you complicate the subject even more, when it seems so basic.” Well, the truth is that we can’t be so basic and superficial, when dealing with issues concerning our spiritual life.
I will teach you something that you should take with you for the rest of your life: Everything that is related to God is simple, but at the same time is very profound, and above all it requires our SACRIFICE, renunciation and the abnegation of our “I”. Please engrave forever this teaching in your mind. Ok?
Let’s go to the subject of today’s article:
Unfortunately, we have observed that there are many assistants who say they are perseverant, but when we go deep into her life’s history, we can see clearly that this perseverance is linked to her own will, that is, she has persevered in her way of being, in her fixed ideas, in her bad eyes, in her evil thoughts, in her timidity, her pride, conclusion: they are persevering in what perishes, which is not eternal and that makes them be far away from the perfect and pleasing will of God.
Make no mistake, for the perseverance that pleases God is when we remain in HIS Word, it’s when we bulletproof our mind and our interior at every moment from all that is corruptible, not letting us be corrupt from the subtlety of feelings.
