Good Day, People! I invite you to read this short, powerful and encouraging post by our guest blogger, Herbert Bowen, Jr. He was in part inspired by his friend Ana Martinez, to write the piece. It is a reminder to us in times of struggle that we cannot fear but continue to believe in God’s great power. He is not through with you yet! The best is yet to come. Thank you Herbert for sharing God’s message with us! -Nicole
Isaiah 43:19- “For I am about to do something new. I have already begun! Do you not see it? I will create rivers in the dry wasteland.” (New Living Translation)
ONLY GOD CAN MAKE SOMETHING OUT OF NOTHING. However, when is nothing felt? Is it when that U-Haul never ceases to be rented, or is it when the business isn’t breaking even? Or maybe it’s the significance of dwindling faith forming a shaky foundation for you to stand on. Oh my friends, please do not lose faith because GOD WILL MAKE A WAY OUT OF NO WAY. Can anyone attest to this bold statement? Has anyone felt the power of a 1,000 men when God pulled you out of the sinking sand? For it is the Counselor of Peace, who will bring you rest like Job, who for 38 chapters waited for God’s response! Thus, how many of us are 38 chapters away from hearing God’s voice? ‘Cuz after God responded Job’s life (due to his faith) was restored. So don’t quit, ‘cuz the last four chapters of your life have to be read so you too may be made whole. Amen
