IF GOD WROTE YOU A LETTER
Glory overcomes gloom. Faith overcomes faults. Deliverance overcomes doubt. Victory overcomes vice. And Jesus overcomes all. Regardless of how you feel or the troubles before you or the questions that won’t let you sleep, I am the Lord. I will provide all you need when you need it. I alone am the one who does marvelous deeds. Others may offer temporary solutions, but their shelf life is limited. I have reigned in the past, in the present, and a day will come when all will bow before me.
Dare to step out in faith today. If I nudge you forward, take a step and see what happens. I want a faith-filled life to become your new normal. I want you to open your eyes in the morning with a sense of expectation. I want you to see what I see. Life has much to offer and I want you to experience it. Listen for my voice and follow me.
Look forward to the day when Jesus will be king! Start today by boldly living a life of faith. What is a step of faith you can take you may been putting off? If nothing comes to mind, pray and ask God for an opportunity to live a bold and courageous life of faith.
