IF GOD WROTE YOU A LETTER
I want you to be strong and courageous. I want your faith to be powerful and unstoppable. You can have a faith like that. Start by obeying my laws and following me wherever I lead. Meditate on my words. Don’t just read them and forget them. Read them and discipline yourself to think about them. And then think about them some more. Talk to me about them. Listen as I talk with you about them. You can have a fearless faith. Step out and do all I put on your heart.
Fear me more than you do any person. Strive to please me and be blessed. If you are to be strong and courageous, you’ve got to know me. If you want to get to know me, spend time in my word. You will always have demands for your time. But if you want success in all you do, make time with me a priority. Develop the habit of thinking of me and my word all day long.
Meditate on God’s word so you can be strong and courageous. Take a minute or more 2-3 times today and reflect on today’s key verse. What is God saying to you?
