Sometimes you're just going to have to do something scared and have enough faith to know that God will bring you through it. But the truth you can hold on to in those moments is that you don't have to give in to that fear, because God did not give you a spirit of fear, but of power, love and a sound mind! (2 Timothy 1:7)
We are all better together! And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching. —Hebrews 10:24-25 (NIV)
…for we walk by faith, not by sight. —2 Corinthians 5:7 (ESV) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ When it comes to faith, don't shrink back because you don't know the outcome; instead, take active steps to move forward in your faith. As believers, we are meant to live an adventurous life of faith—trusting that God is guiding us and will provide for us!
Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations. —Jeremiah 1:5 (NIV) From the beginning of time, God set you apart and had a plan and purpose for your life. You are valuable and essential to His kingdom purpose here on earth!
You were created in the image of God (Ephesians 2:10)! What an honor, privilege, and example of just how highly you are valued and esteemed! Nothing else in creation was created in God’s own image. You were made on purpose, for a purpose. You are God’s masterpiece—priceless, treasured, and endowed with heavenly purpose by your heavenly Father.
