These are just the beginning of all that he does, merely a whisper of his power. Who, then, can comprehend the thunder of his power?
IF GOD WROTE YOU A LETTER
I want you to have friends who care for and encourage you. But even their best intentions will not always provide what you need. Don’t be frustrated by them and what they are or are not doing for you. You need good friends, but you need and have access to so much more.
I am all you need. I know all and will provide for you at the right moment and at the right time. I want you to seek me and learn all you can from me. I am infinite, and my love is fathomless, so you will never know all I can offer. But the more you seek, the more you will find. My glory dwells within you. I have given you the Comforter, the Holy Spirit. I want to guide you, so seek me and follow me. Obey me, and I will show you more than you can imagine. Encourage those same friends to do the same. Better yet, I want you and your friends to follow me together.
Be quick to listen to, encourage, and pray for someone in need today.
