Saints of God,
It’s been a while since I last sent you some words of encouragement. The scripture reminds us that we walk not by sight, but by the Spirit. Our spiritual minds lead our thoughts and our actions. Let us know that God has called us to pray, always trusting in the guiding presence of the Holy Spirit.
I need not remind us of the times we live in. It is not normal. There are so many things coming our way. We are confused. In 2 Corinthians, the apostle Paul claimed he was pushed beyond his ability to endure. In Acts 27:24, Paul was so afraid that an angel exhorted him not to be afraid. He was human just as we are.
Paul knew some things. He knew that wherever he was, God was present with him. He trusted the guiding presence of the Holy Spirit. He trusted that God was near (Acts 18:9).
In these difficult times, we too can know that God is with us. We can count on his presence to guide us. Pray and keep close to God. God bless you and stay safe.
