7) AND LEAD US NOT INTO TEMPTATION
aughter, now I would like to return to our musings about the prayer “Our Father”. Today, I will address the words: “Lead us not into temptation”. In these words you are expressing your faith in My power and the awareness of your own weakness. Anyone who wants to unite with Me must pass the trial on Earth. This trial is not necessary to test your faithfulness, but to develop it. Faithfulness is strengthened precisely in times of trial; it is hardened like iron in the fire. The purpose of all trials is to enable you to grow in faith, hope and love, and double your patience and humility. The trials that I send upon you are a blessing, because without them you would not be able to achieve the plenitude of your humanity. Thus, it is not good to ask Me not to test you, because the experiences are an expression of My love.
The goal of every experience is to teach you something, and thanks to that to purify and open to grace the subsequent layer of the soul. I will test you until I reach the very depths of your souls and burn them thoroughly. I am the Fire that consumes you through trials, but by consuming, purifies and sanctifies. So you should rather ask Me for the strength to endure all sorts of tests and trials, for the perseverance and patience in carrying your crosses. A time devoid of suffering is a fruitless time. Rejoice because of your suffering, because then you bear abundant fruit, and your souls ripen the fastest.
The evil spirit, knowing your weakness, always selects a temptation suitable to your shortcomings and predilections. So the sooner you will fight these shortcomings and predilections in yourselves, the smaller the room for action for the evil spirit. Temptations are born in the mind of man, and strengthen in the heart that yields to them. Then sin arises. But if the heart of man remains clean, the temptation will not manage to turn into sin. Each temptation comes along with the grace to overcome it. I do not give you above your strength. By allowing the enemy to tempt you, I also give you the grace for defense, thanks to which you receive strength and wisdom to fight the temptation. Rising against the temptation, you must however remember to always take advantage of this grace, because if you swell with pride and go forth to battle without My help, you will be defeated. That is why you should always ask Me for help in temptations and for the grace not to indulge in bad inclinations, which are inherent to your nature.
Human nature is prone to sin, but a man wishing to persevere in sanctifying grace is able to overcome it thanks to this grace. The sanctifying grace creates something similar to an armor which surrounds the human heart and protects it from pernicious temptations. A man wishing to surrender to temptation must truly desire this and consciously reject My help. For I am always ready to fight every temptation thanks to prayer. So pray with confidence that the temptations that I allow upon you are a blessing for you, under the condition that you will fight them trusting in My mercy and My fatherly care, which I never refuse you. And the more I allow upon you, the more I care about you. After the trials of this earth, I will call you to a place free of all temptations, and the fight in your heart will end forever. Amen.
