My dear little children, praised be Jesus!
Place all your confidence in Jesus, little ones.
Who is greater than God?
What can you offer, in all your greatness, to any person, if your deeds are not rooted in God’s will?
My Son lived a hidden life for a long period of time for a purpose.
He gave great glory to God the Father in his humble, daily and oftentimes in the eyes of people, meaningless works.
He did not try to win the favor of the people.
He knew he had the Father’s approval, and he found great joy in fulfilling the Father’s Will by faithfully tending to his daily, little duties.
If the Father wanted him to be ordinary and perform minor tasks, even if others thought they were meritless, then He wanted to complete each task with great care, peace of heart and humility.
He did not seek to be great or do great things, because He knew His Father was great and his greatness rested in the Father and in doing the Father’s Will.
Doing great works does not make you holy, little children.
Holiness rests in faithfulness.
Doing great works consists of doing those works that the Father wills for you to perform.
Little ones, if God desires you to remain hidden in life, performing little humble daily tasks, then faithfully carry them out because this gives Him great glory.
People do not need to know of the great gifts with which God has graced you for you to be great in the eyes of God.
You need only to do the Father’s Will. Honor comes from God, not the world.
Ponder, little children, how My Son , even in his hidden life, outlined the way to holiness, and through his example of “littleness” gave the Father great glory by doing His Will.
Take delight in doing what God desires. He is with you.
I bless you, little children. I take your petitions to Heaven.
Peace to you.
Thank you for responding to my call.
