Your word is a lamp for my feet and a light for my path. (Psalm 119)
Paul, whose encounter with Jesus on the road to Damascus led to the conversion of both his spirit and of his travels, continued to perceive in his ‘mind’s eye’ Jesus giving him direction. At times the Holy Spirit of Jesus stopped him from carrying out his (Paul’s) own plans. At other times the Lord called out to Paul through visions that gave him specific details of his next assignment. How was St. Paul different from me? Haven’t we both received the baptism of the Holy Spirit? Am I, like Paul, so firmly focussed on the things of God to be able to perceive the will of God for my life? Teach me how to perceive your will, O Lord.
Know that the Lord is God. (Psalm 110:3)
(S)He who trusts herself/ himself is lost. (S)He who trusts in God can do all things.
St. Alphonsus Liguori
