Surrendering to God our Father

Saint Vincent de Paul teaches: “Do you not see that the birds neither sow nor reap? Yet God sets a table for them everywhere; He gives them clothing and food. He even extends His Providence to the grass of the field, even to the lilies, which have such magnificent ornaments that Solomon in all his glory had none like them. Now, if God provides for birds and plants in this way, why will you not trust in a God who is so good and so lavish with His goods? Would you rather trust in yourself than in Him? And yet you know that He can do all things, and that you can do nothing; and yet you dare to rely rather on your industry than on His goodness, on your poverty than on His abundance! O misery of man!…”

“Unburden your mind of all that grieves you; God will take care of it. You cannot be overly concerned without upsetting, so to speak, the Heart of God, because He sees that you do not honor Him enough with holy trust. Trust in Him, I beg you, and you will have the fulfillment of what your heart desires. I say to you again, reject all those thoughts of distrust that you sometimes allow your mind to entertain. And why should your soul not be full of confidence, since it is the dear daughter of Our Lord, through His mercy?… Oh, how great treasures are hidden in holy Providence! And how sovereignly they honor Our Lord, who follow it and do not step over it!”
