God Works in Mysterious Ways when We Trust Patiently in Him

06-13-2021Fr. Anthony Okolo, C.S.Sp

The first reading from the prophet Ezekiel tells of the promise of God to restore His chosen people Israel after the Babylonia exile. He says, “I too, will take from the crest of cedar, from its topmost branches tear off a tender shoot, and plant it on a high and lofty mountain on a mountain heights of Israel I will plant it.” The Babylonian exiles are like tender shoot after their exiles experience, God promised that He Himself would place them on a height where birds of every kind shall dwell beneath it. God is saying even though they had disobeyed Me by their actions and lack of faithfulness He would still restore them to a better position and not just bring them back but put them up to a higher level. In the same way, we may lose our way due to our unfaithfulness to God’s love but the moment we finally find our way back to God He restores us and places us in a high place beyond our own imagination. It is equally a way of encouraging us never to give up even when we feel we have lost our bearing. God would always restore us to a high mountain.
