A blessed day to all in the Name of the Lord and especially to my brothers and sisters in the Lord. This is truly a day that was only made by our God. So let us rejoice and be glad in it.
Faith is believing what God says. Some people think faith is like taking a leap in the dark, that faith is blind.
But the Bible says it’s the opposite. Away from God we are in the dark. That’s when we are blind, stumbling around.
John Newton was a notorious slave trader — but coming to know Jesus changed him forever. He spent the rest of his life working to free slaves and wrote the hymn “Amazing Grace”:
“I once was blind,” he sang, “but now I see!” There is where we want to place our faith in Jesus the light of the world.Without Jesus in your life you are as blind as the darkest night. Wake up brothers and sisters.
When we come home to God it is not a leap into darkness. It is a magnificent leap into light — the light of God’s love for us! “Jesus [said], ‘I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.'” — John 8:12 (KJV)
Faith is not blind! It is believing that God is who He says He is… It is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see (Hebrews 11:1). How are you learning to have faith right now? What is God teaching you? Are you ready to make the change and believe that He is the rewarder of those that diligently seek Him.
Your servant and brother,
