“When people trust only in themselves and their own human effort, God steps back and the degree of His assistance is weakened”

St. Thomas Aquinas says:

“Praise be to Jesus.”

“I have come to help you understand why trust is laid upon the foundation of humility. When you trust someone, you have confidence in their ability to accomplish something. In the case of God’s Deciding Will, you trust God to weave together the right graces and circumstances to accomplish His good. To rely on this, means you recognize your own weakness and the necessity of God’s intervention.”

“When people trust only in themselves and their own human effort, God steps back and the degree of His assistance is weakened. Nothing is accomplished outside of God’s Will. The more the soul acknowledges his dependency upon God, the greater his achievement in the world.”
