July 20th: Discerning God’s will

What more must I do?

Matthew 12: 38 – 42

As I am meditating, I find myself guilty of being like the Pharisees, asking for a sign if this is what God is really asking me to do. Despite most of the times praying all along for it and having it finally answered, I still question God as if I need proof that it is really Him guiding me.

It reminds me of training new staff at work that double and triple check if I am sure what I showed them to do is what they are supposed to be doing.

So, I can feel Jesus’ frustration in today’s gospel, as if asking,“ What more must I really do for you?” It seems almost like an inherent distrust of Him because the people believed and repented when Jonah preached and they travelled far to hear the wisdom of Solomon yet they still constantly question Jesus for signs.

I pray today for greater trust in God and that He grants me the ability to discern His will in my life.
