God’s Will is My Food

Apoc.11:19;12:1-6.4/Ps.44:10-12,16/1Cor.15:20-26/Lk.9:39-56


God’s Will is My Food


The Blessed Virgin Mary, in all aspects of her life more so, in her Assumption, is a prototype of God's ultimate vision plan for all humankind who will preserve the divine image and integrity planted into their soul. At creation, God made us caricatures of himself on earth (Gen.1:26; Ps.82:10; Jn.10:34), intending, that at the end of our earthly pilgrimage, if we behave accordingly, he will take us all with him into heaven (1 Thess.4:17).


In other words, through her Assumption, Mary reminds all men and women we belong to Christ, and Christ belongs to God (1Cor.3:23). Ultimately because we live, move and have our being in Christ, we belong to God (1 Jn.4:6). Therefore, our rightful abode is in heaven, where Christ is (Jn.14:3).


The Assumption of Enoch (Gen.5:21-24) and Elijah (2 Kgs 2:3–9) whose integrity was faultless are demonstrations of God's predetermined plan to reward righteous men and women with a place in heaven. God promised to do the same for all who are faithful to his covenant. For this reason, Christ Jesus invites all who believe in him to pattern their lives and holiness, on his Mother's (Matt.12:48). He is a great rewarder of those who seek him diligently (Heb.11:6).


The foundation of Mary's greatness was her diligence in faith, love and commitment to God. Mary's Magnificat is the anthem of all Christians who seek to emulate her loyalty, devotion and commitment to God. Yes, like Mary, God, will do great things for those who do his will, unconditionally. All generations similarly will call them blessed since God rewarded their fidelity to his covenant with a place in his kingdom.


O God, let your will is my food.
