Entrust Your Cause

Posted on

In today's Gospel reading from John 7, the people are wondering just who Jesus is. The first reading is from Jeremiah 11. In it, Jeremiah prays:

"But you, O LORD of hosts, O just Judge, searcher of mind and heart, Let me witness the vengeance you take on them, for to you I have entrusted my cause!"

Sounds a lot like surrender, doesn't it? "To you I have entrusted my cause." Whatever your "cause" is, have you entrusted it to God? Have you entrusted everything to God? Because you should. We should entrust everything to God, and let the chips fall where they may. When they don't fall your way (by your perception, anyway), know that God has a plan and give it time to work out. In the end, it will.

Father, we entrust everything - our whole lives - to you today. Amen.

    LOL. Thank you for helping me focus on the part of the sentence that is more meaningful Gus!

    I found myself relating more to first part: “Let me witness the vengeance you take on them” – on those I feel “deserve” it!
