Dearest Friend, Blessings to you and yours. It is with great joy that I write to you today because I have been on quite a journey and I am relieved to have my feet settled and be in my right place, even though my journey continues.
I am writing to you today to encourage you and to tell you to hold your chin up and to stand tall and be proud. Whatever you may be facing; you are not in it alone. I am praying for you. Prayer warriors are praying for you; but that’s not all. You see, behind the scenes, angels are moving and God the Father is arranging things so that you may have perfect peace. You just have to stay focused on God and speak the truth; the truth of Gods’ Word. I want to talk to you about your faith and my faith.
Do you believe God? Do you believe His Word? Either you do or you don’t. Everyday your faith will be tested. EVERYDAY.
*One morning after leaving prayer, I was walking next to a fellow prayer warrior. I said with my mouth: “I hate these dizzy spells that I have. I can hardly see or walk.” My friend looked at me and shook her head. She seemed angry. She said: “I don’t believe it.” She went on to say something like we just left prayer and you thanked God for hearing your prayers and ANSWERING them and now you’re out here confessing sickness. She looked at me as if to say: “WHO ARE YOU AND WHAT HAPPENED TO THE PERSON THAT WAS IN THERE PRAISING GOD?”
I didn’t understand her lack of sympathy and pity at the time. I certainly didn’t like her response. I even prayed about it. Months passed and I realized this was good medicine that she gave to me. Sometimes believers go to other believers for advice and instead of a long dissertation of sympathy, they just need to hear three words: “ DO YOU BELIEVE GOD?”
Now faith is assurance of things hoped for, proof of things not seen. Hebrews 11: 1
Without faith it is impossible to be well pleasing to him, for he who comes to God must believe that he exists, and that he is a rewarder of those who seek him. Hebrews 11: 6
By faith, Abraham, when he was called, obeyed to go out to the place which he was to receive for an inheritance. He went out, not knowing where he went. Hebrews 11: 8
