Dear sister and friend in Christ Ali…so wonderful and perfect a message of hope and encouragement which to me obviously speaks to the truth of what we ultimately see going on in all of this at times chaotic or tumultuous world gone awry, with so much bad trying to overwhelm the good! But we know the light always overcomes the darkness and that is from the beginning, when God Himself said; “let there be light!”
“1In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.
2Now the earth was formless and void, and darkness was over the surface of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the surface of the waters.
3And God said, “Let there be light,”a and there was light. 4And God saw that the light was good, and He separated the light from the darkness. 5God called the light “day,” and the darkness He called “night.”
And there was evening, and there was morning—the first day.”
With that I can see the light, and know this “Truth by His omnipotence!”
“What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?” Romans 8:31
The author of the universe speaks directly to us in all things; and what he commands is; as “He is the great “I Am!”
Indeed Ali who do we and should we have confidence in; even in our darkest hour no matter what the “Ways of the World” are predicating or even forcing upon us! With genuine faith in God Almighty we could be as destitute as Dismas was on his cross next to Jesus Christ; when Jesus told him, “Truly, I say to you, today you will be with Me in Paradise” (Luke 23:32-43).
Yes we all carry our own cross if we follow Him, as children of the Light and Faith in Him our beloved Savior Jesus Christ! And for doing this our reward and favor by His shed blood will be the greatest of all possible gifts, to be with Him eternally in the presence and peace of our heavenly Father and Maker, God Almighty!
“Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths.” Proverbs 3:5-6
A well-deserved note here of congratulations to you Ali, for completing your work in Bible studies for our Lord! I know He is so pleased and happy for you as His child Ali; who sees and follows the Light! Amen.
Brother in Christ Jesus,
