Patience means to be in alignment with the Lord’s perfect plan.
A revelation is not a planned event.
Every living being has free will. If the Lord forced, there would be no question of love. Love means that there is free will.
It is a time for prayer. The world situation is precarious, but if it induces us to pray, to reconnect with God, to acknowledge our dependence on Him, then it is the greatest blessing.
When we accept our smallness, not out of false humility, but with the strength of the realization of our position in the Creation, only then can the Lord do big things through us.
