What you are not able to do yourselves, that becomes possible through love work and prayer.

 

Bertha Dudde:

 

Spiritual progress through overcoming of self.

4. August 1953. B.D. NR. 5738.

To make an enormous progress in the spiritual development also requires an enormous overcoming of self, a strong will and strong faith. You will hardly make progress, so you do not eagerly strive for it, so you behave indifferent, when it is essential to stand up fighting, may it be against your own desires or also against everything, what is hindering you to mature the soul for you; you must always keep the aim before the eye to spur yourselves on to continual struggling and striving; you are not allowed to devote yourselves to self-deceptions, that you assess yourselves higher than the maturity of your soul allows it; you must practise sharp criticism of yourselves and only when you have recognized your faults and weaknesses, you take action against them. This requires a strong will, but which always undergoes strengthening through the calling on Jesus Christ, why you also must have strong faith at your disposal. With his help you can achieve everything, so also a high spiritual progress, an overcoming of yourselves and a constant increase of your love power, which then also achieves everything, what you strive for. But you gain no step forward without fighting, without love activity and without prayer. For love work and prayer secure for you the joining together with God and therefore also already a wide lead upwards, for the approach to God is the aim, which you are to achieve, so that also then every fight becomes easy for you and will always bring the victory. What you are not able to do yourselves, that becomes possible through love work and prayer. And for that reason you have always these two safely working means, when it seriously matters to you to achieve spiritual progress, and you must just find the will to turn to God in prayer and to achieve his love for you through love work. Then you can be lacking nothing; then you yourselves have success certain, and only the depth of your faith determines the length of time, in which you reach your aim and that your faith and you will may be strengthened that you just need to request from Jesus Christ; you just need to use the favours of his work of redemption, which remove every weakness and also promise success. For he gives power to all, who call him, because they believe in him.
Amen. B.D. NR. 5738.
