“He has done all things well; He even makes the deaf hear and the dumb speak!”
– Mark 7:37
Those who witnessed the miracle that Jesus had performed on the deaf and dumb man, exclaimed: “He has done all things well; He even makes the deaf hear and the dumb speak!” We, ourselves, can see that miracle as a symbol of the way God acts on souls. For us to believe, we must first allow God to open our heart so we can listen to His Word.
As God’s Word penetrates our heart, we will recognise it as the Truth, and we will not be able to contain our joy nor want to keep it to ourselves. It is the Holy Spirit who opens our ears to receive the Truth with gladness, and our lips to proclaim God’s love with joy and delight in our heart!
O Holy Spirit, Divine Counsellor,
Spirit of Truth, always by my side,
thank You for Your persistence with me;
for Your gracious encouragement;
and for being always so ready to fill me with love, joy and peace
…at my asking.
Thank You, Spirit of God,
for opening up the ears of my heart
to let me hear the Truth
and to be able to receive it gladly.
let Your voice flow into my heart;
open my lips;
and fill me with the need to humbly, but ardently, share the Good News with others.
