Act of Abandonment to God

Jesus speaks:

Why are you in distress and get confused? Let Me take care of your things and everything will calm down. I tell you in Truth that every act of true, blind, and complete abandonment in Me has the effect that you want and solves the most difficult situations. Abandoning yourself to Me does not mean despairing and then turning to Me an agitated prayer so that I may follow you: it is rather about changing your anxiety into prayer.

Abandoning yourself to Me means placidly closing the eyes of your soul, turning away the thought of your pains, and leave it to Me so that I alone may carry you to the other side like a child asleep in his mother’s arms.

What upsets you and gives you immense pain is your reasoning, your thinking, your preoccupation and the will to fix at all costs what troubles you. How many things I work when a soul turns to Me for both her spiritual and material needs, looking at Me and saying “Please take care of it”, and then closes her eyes and rests!

You receive fewer graces when you get anxious to get them, while you have plenty of them when in your prayer you fully abandon yourself to Me. In your prayer, you pray that I remove your pain, but that I do so in the way you think. You turn to Me, but want that I adapt to your ideas. You are like someone who is ill, but instead of asking the doctor for the medicine, he suggests it himself.

Do not do that, but do as I have taught you in the Our Father: “Hallowed Be Thy Name”, that is, be glorified in this need of mine: “Thy Kingdom Come”, that is, everything contribute to your Kingdom in us and in the world, “Your Will Be Done”, that is, take care of it.

I intervene with all My omnipotence and resolve the most difficult situations. You see that the illness gets worse instead of getting better? Do not panic, close your eyes and tell me with confidence: “Thy Will Be Done”, take care of it. I tell you that I will take care of it, that I step in as a doctor and work even a miracle if necessary. You see that the patient gets worse? Do not get anxious, but close your eyes and say: “Take care of it”, I tell you that I will take care of it.

It is against abandonment, worrying, getting anxious, and obsessing over the consequences of an event. It’s like the confusion of children, when they want their mother to take care of their needs, but at the same time want to think about it themselves, and so they get in her way and hamper her work with childish whims.

Close your eyes and let yourself go to the flow of My grace; close your eyes and let Me work; close your eyes and think of the present moment; turn away the thought of the future as a temptation. Rest in Me, believe in My goodness, and I swear to you, for My love for you, that if with this way you then tell me “Take care of it”, I think of it in full, I console you, I set you free, I guide you.

And when I have to take you by a different way from the one you see, then I train you, I carry you in my arms, because there is no medicine more powerful than My love. I take care of it only when you close your eyes. You are sleepless, you want to evaluate everything, scrutinize everything, think about everything, and in this way you put your trust on human strength, or, worse, on men, trusting in their intervention. That’s what hinders My words and My views. Oh, how I wish from you this abandonment so that I may help you, and how I suffer to see you anxious!

Satan wants precisely this: to make you anxious, so that you subtract yourself from my intervention and throw yourself into human initiatives. Confide only in Me, rest in Me, abandon yourself to Me in everything.

I work miracles in proportion to the degree you abandon yourself in Me and put no trust in yourself: I spread treasures of grace when you are in full poverty!

If you have your own resources, even if just a little, or if you look for them, you are in the realm of nature, and follow the natural path of things which is often hampered by Satan. No big thinker ever worked miracles, even among the saints. Works miracles only who abandons himself to God.

When you see that things get complicated, say with the eyes of your soul closed: “Jesus, please take care of it”, and then distract yourself. Trust in Me often, distracting yourself from yourself. Do so for all of your needs. Do so all of you, and you will see great, silent and continuous miracles. I swear it by my Love. I’ll think about it, I assure you.

Always pray with this attitude of abandonment, you will gain great peace and great fruit, even when I will grant you the grace of immolation for repair and love, which requires  suffering. You think it is impossible? Close your eyes and say with all your soul: “Jesus, take care of it”. Do not be afraid, I will take care of it, and you will receive blessings for your humility. Your prayers are not worth as much as an act of confident abandonment; remember this well. There is no novena more effective than this:

“Jesus, I abandon myself to Thy, please take care of it”.

Abandon yourself to My heart, and you will see. I want you to believe in my omnipotence and not in your action, I want you try and put Me into action, and not yourself, in others.

Seek closeness to me, fulfill my desire to have you, bless you and love you as I want. Let go, let Me rest in you, let Me express My omnipotence on you. If you stay with Me, you will not worry to do things your way. You will show Me that you believe in My omnipotence and I will work hard with you when you talk, you go, you pray or sleep, because “to My beloved, I give what they need even in their sleep” (Psalm 126). If you stay with Me without wanting to run nor worry about anything, but putting your complete trust in Me, I will give you everything you need according to my eternal plans.

I’ll inspire you the feelings I want from you, I’ll give you a great compassion for your neighbor and I will let you say and do what I want.

Then your action will come from My love. I alone, not you with all your activities, can make new children, who come from me. I’ll make more the more you will want to be a true son as the Only Begotten, because you know that: “If you do My Will, you’ll be My brother and sister and mother. What you will do to succeed is all smoke in comparison to what I do in the secret of hearts of those who love.

“Remain in My love … if you remain in Me and My words remain in you, ask whatever you want and you shall receive it” (John 15:7).
