Be Encouraged!

A triumphant life is a reflection of the storms you’ve been through. No matter what man tried to do to you. God’s grace brought you through.

We may never know what a person has been through by looking on the outside. Only God knows what’s on the inside.

Never judge a book by its cover. We may look all put together. And not have two nickels to rub together. Outer appearances aren’t designed to reveal God’s glory in the struggle.

God will humble the proud and exalt the humble. He shows favor to the humble (Matt 23:12). When you put yourself in a dangerous place and fall from grace, submit. Humble yourself by faith.

Your present does not dictate your past. You are designed for greatness. Let go of the past. God knows all the struggles and hurts you have been through. God cares and loves you. For your faithfulness, God will reward you.

Rejoice! Don’t fret. God’s not through with you yet. He is Alpha and Omega. He is the beginning and the end. What God starts, he finishes. He who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion. For every trial, God sends it for a reason.

Be encouraged! What you see is not the end. God has begun a good work in you and will complete it to the end. Trust Him.

Be blessed! -JD

Numbers 23:19 “God is not a man that he should lie, or a son of man, that he should change his mind. Has he said, and will he not do? Or has he spoken, and will he not fulfill it?” (ESV)
