I want this post to encourage and resurrect your faith. If you think you have been going through a test and it seems like God is not speaking to you, remember that the teacher is always quiet while the student is testing.

Someone said to me the other day, "Bishop, this faith thing is so hard." My response was, "It sure is when we are trying to do it; it must be done in Christ." Remember, it is not your faith, but His. It is only when we internalize His faith does it truly become our faith. Jesus said that according to your faith, be it unto you. There is a grave difference between our faith (human and carnal) and His faith (spiritual and eternal). Here is the answer: quit wrestling with your problems, situations, or dilemmas outside of Christ. For without Him, we can do nothing. We have to quit attempting to coerce God into supporting our program and start finding out what He is doing and fit into His agenda! If we will follow Him, we will always get to where He is going. We will get there right on time, right destination, and meet our divine appointment.
T: Turn over all your problems to Him.
R: Rest in His ability to carry you through.
U: Use the Word of God as your only defence.
S: Stand firmly on His promise, no matter what it looks like.
T: Tell everyone about the goodness of God.
I believe great days are ahead!
Humbly loving you,
