Reflexion (Paz Total)

And about the ninth hour, Jesus exclaimed with a loud voice, saying: Eli, Eli, lama sabactani? This is: My God, my God, why have you forsaken me? Matthew 27:46

Have you ever felt at some point in your life that you can even believe that God has abandoned you? The biblical story shows us that Jesus the son of God when he was hung from that cross, with nails in his hands and feet, and leaning on the cross and with the mortal effort of holding on to the nails to get up a little and be able breathe, he exclaimed; My God, my God, why have you forsaken me? The Lord felt that his father was not with him, in that hour of such deep trial and great pain, this shows us that the suffering of Jesus as a man was real, that the pain was as intense as any man has ever suffered, since Satan’s whole army was struggling with all its might to destroy the savior of the world, and the purpose of all those tricks and trials against Jesus was to mistrust his father, and to feel the need to flee and surrender, and although Jesus he suffered too much, and fear and worry accompanied him, he remained faithful to his father, to his will, even though at that moment he felt lonely and abandoned. When we adapt this situation to our life, it may be that at some point in history we are in this same situation, because let me tell you that it is really easy to be faithful to God when everything is going well, when everything is good, it is very easy to be faithful, in fact it is easier to be loyal to God when our refrigerators are full, when our economy is prosperous and when everything goes from good to better, however only when we lose everything, is it really known that our faith is made, Whether we trust God or not, the devil knows this perfectly, and that is why you see that many people in the test are when they separate from God, when they decide on another option and surrender or transfer themselves to the enemy side just to avoid the pain. But standing on the tests, only shows where your confidence is, and trust in God is not something you open at the last moment, as a last alternative. As; "In case of emergency, look for God." On the contrary, trust in God is the result of a daily communion, of a personal relationship with the creator, in good times as well as in bad times, that is, in times of peace, if so, the relationship grows so that when the bad moments arrive that we never hope we are strengthened in the Lord and we do not have to fear. Jesus on the cross felt alone but continued forward with the mission that his father had entrusted to him, it is likely that you and I also do not feel separated from God and alone as well. But even so and in spite of, we must continue trusting in God. It is not easy, certainly not, but when we know that powerful and great God we know that he is there even though he can not feel it, and that he will help us; yes, but my will or my wish will not be done, but the will of him who knows more than we do. We need to know him, we need to obey him and above all trust him. And even trusting him we must be clear that the things that may be happening in my life will not change because I trust in God, but I will have the assurance that even if nothing improves, he will never abandon me.
