“God is not unjust so as to overlook your work and the love you have demonstrated for his name by having served and continuing to serve the holy ones.”
Sometimes, it feels like God does not really see us. It feels like He does not really appreciate our good works and good deeds especially when we see sinners enjoying the riches and pleasures of this world.
Yet, today’s scripture readings remind us that God sees our good works. They also remind us that we should wait with faith and patience for the fulfillment of His promises.
God also gives the best answers to our prayers. We have to be open to His response and trust that He knows what’s best for us. He may not always answer our prayers when and how we want them to be answered, but His answer is always the best for us — in this life and the next.
What have you been praying for?
Don’t lose heart. Trust that God hears you.
