Voluntas Domini prosperabitur (Is 53:10).

The will of the Lord shall be accomplished.

Sometimes our will is not the same as our Lord's will. The reason is that we are not familiar with suffering and changing our plans. But God, our Father, knows that difficult situations are important for our progress too. Since in affliction we are able to see the light in fulness. Subsequently, we can come closer to the Son of God who died for us. Through his suffering he has justified many and born their guilt. We are supposed to follow his example and to place our trust in God Almighty. For his words are upright and trustworthy. He will fulfill what he has promised and will change our bad experiences into something good for us. His eyes are still upon our life and especially when we are troubled and distressed. He has power to deliver us even from death and to preserve us in spite of danger. Therefore, our soul is to wait for the Lord who is its help and shield. Furthermore, we are repeatedly asked to approach the throne of grace in the holy sacraments of the Church. Since there we have a great high priest, Jesus Christ, who has passed through the heavens to join us and to become one of us.
