Are you going through some difficult times right now? What’s your desperate measure? - Daily Reflections October 27, 2016



DESPERATE TIMES CALL FOR
DESPERATE MEASURES
 
There are moments in our lives when we are led to believe that there is still hope no matter how far it is from the truth, or when giving up seems easier because the obstacles we are facing seem impossible to overcome. In times like this, to whom do we turn for help? Desperate times call for desperate measures. But desperate measures sometimes worsen the situation rather than alleviate it.
       St. Paul reminds us to always put on the full armor of God so that we can take a stand against the devil’s schemes. The devil will never get tired of attacking us. Day and night, it will wage war against us until we succumb to its wiles. It strikes when we least expect it, for it knows our weaknesses so well. A combat like this requires an unimaginable amount of will and stamina. The enemy comes in legions, so it is a fight to be reckoned with like no other.
       The Lord is like a lighthouse that will guide a lost navigator on his journey. He is the compass which points the traveler to the right direction. God is like an anchor that firmly holds the boat when rough waves come in. And He is the rainbow that reminds the weary that the storm is over. A person who faithfully serves the Lord will never give up until he reaches his destination. He will do whatever needs to be done for God’s greater glory. He is armed with a helmet of salvation, the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God, and a shield of faith which can extinguish the flaming arrows from the devil.
       Because only he who has faith in God finds the true meaning of his existence. Fr. Sonny Cotiamco
