IF GOD WROTE YOU A LETTER
I have all power and all wisdom. I will give insight to the wise and knowledge to the discerning. Seek me, and I will provide all that you need. I will reveal deep and hidden things that will allow you to follow me and to lead others. Do not look for an easy answer or a quick fix. Seek me. Seek a solution that will not be temporary. Do not place a band-aid on wounds that need surgery. My answer will not always come at the timing you want, but it will arrive on time.
When you are challenged or threatened or feel like you have nowhere to turn, look to me. And don’t feel like you have to wait until you’ve exhausted all your resources. The best thing you can do is seek me immediately. Learn the rhythm of praying and listening to me throughout your day. I am always with you, and I will always guide you. Listen for my voice.
Is there something God has placed on your heart that you can invite others to passionately pray for with you? Gather friends and pray for God to do great things.
