Hands lifted up in supplication to God will always be strengthened to serve him. Look at all the great saints who did incredible works though they had nothing. God glorifies himself by calling us to trust in him and by bringing abundant life where the land is dry. In this way, you will see that the work is his and not your own. He simply calls you to trust and to respond to his call. Be vigilant so that when he asks you to serve him in a particular way you will be ready to go forth and do so. You will see that this is the greatest path for your life. By trusting, you will be greatly rewarded and you will understand God’s abundant goodness. He loves you. Be not afraid!
