29. God’s Great Instruments
In communication 26 and 27 Satan’s instruments ware given, which lead us to do evil. Now, it is time to give God’s instruments, which lead us to do good. And the greatest result is to die in the friendship of the Lord and save our soul for all eternity. It’s up to choose: God’s instruments or Satan’s instruments.
God has given us many great instruments to choose and to use. They are very powerful. And they all begin with God Himself. Who always was and always will be. Then, He gave us His Divine Son, Jesus, Our Blessed Mother, Mary, Angels, and Saints. They are all very powerful heavenly instruments. God also gave us earthly instruments, namely, parents, family, friends, and acquaintances.
When we think of and accept our heavenly instruments, we start with God of course. Then we can go to Jesus and His Blessed Mother, Mary, both thought of together. Jesus is the King of heaven and Mary is the Queen of heaven. And both work together here on earth for our spiritual good. Our prayers first and foremost should be to them. They are the most powerful in all of heaven, and Mary is the Mediatrix of all graces, and her Divine Son, Jesus, is the one who listens to Her and grants the help and graces. The answer to our prayers to the saints, also, comes through Jesus and Mary. Pray often to Them. And do not forget to say prayer of thanksgiving to them after prayers are answered. That is MOST IMPORTANT after your prayer requests.
Angels have been known to appear at times of crisis in people’s lives. And contrary to belief angels do not have wings, but they do have a special appearance. And we all have a Guardian Angel. Untold numbers of us are alive today due to the protection of Guardian Angels. They and other angels are protectors, messengers, and servants of God. They are great instruments of God. Remember to thank your Guardian Angel at times throughout your life.
Saints are heavenly creatures of past earthly times. Many babies at baptism are named after a saint. The saint then becomes the patron saint of the child and is another protector. We pray to the saints to help us at different times in our lives. They worked hard at becoming special earthly creatures of God, and in heaven they became special instruments of God. Some of the more famous saints are: St. Joseph (helpfut to fathers), St. Jude (patron of impossible cases). St. Therese (of the Child Jesus) is a great saint to pray to for urgent request. She is also known as The Little Flower. She is most helpful. St. Michael helps defend us against the powers of the devil. St. Odilia (patron of eyesight) helps with eye problems. There are so many saints to pray to, and there are many good and inspirational books we can read about their lives. You will not be sorry that you did the reading.
God has given us His earthly great instruments in the form of spiritually and morally active parents. Family members, friends, and acquaintances. We are lucky to have these earthly instruments of God. We should be thankful daily. Morning an evening, considering the very sinful modern world we live in now.
God’s great instruments, if we are sincere, lead us away from Satan’s. God’s instruments are more powerful. Heavenly help is more powerful. But we must be prayful and diligent in seeking that help. God loves us beyond measure and is always there to help us with His heavenly and earthly instruments. Using God’s great instruments make us the winner and Satan the loser.
