Letters to the Faithful
Expect the unexpected! Being part of the great commission requires all to journey along paths that when you least expect it throws you a curve ball you never saw coming. Let’s face it, none of us can truly predict what’s coming around that blind spot of life. But in reality, you don’t need to be surprised when it rears its ugly head. It is also the opportunity to depend on our God for His will, His power and His miracles to show Himself strong on our behalf.
Letter to the Faithful

Expect the unexpected. Being part of the great commission requires all to journey along paths that when you least expect it throws you a curve ball you never saw coming. Let’s face it, none of us can truly predict what’s coming around that blind spot of life. But in reality, you don’t need to be surprised when it rears its ugly head. It is also the opportunity to depend on our God for His will, His power and His miracles to show Himself strong on our behalf.
For as Paul said, “nothing will ever separate those who are in Christ from the Love of God”. By keeping our right relationship with our Heavenly Father we have the knowledge and the stress free attitude and peace that it’s up to Him to deliver us. As a Christian we have ever opportunity to be a overcomer and from that perch we need not be afraid. Really, what are you going to lose or face in this life that can outshine the promises of Heaven and the blood of Jesus. So bring it on.Taking Jesus's blood as our birthright automatically gave us the freedom not to fear, worry or have distress. That is our authority.
We can’t accept that in this life we won’t face trials and tribulations especially as this age comes to an end. If anything we should all the more be prepared for them. Now, I am not saying we become maniacal over trouble like some suicide squad looking for pain and glory. We are the redeemed. and as such we wear our badges. bruises and burdens with dignity, honor and righteousness knowing all the while we are called for the Word sake and are witnesses to the world as Jesus was and is. So, in those times of testing our patience and resolve, the opportunity exist for the demonstration of our conviction which is our Faith.
The Faith; that no matter how the physical looks the Spirit has already overcome. In Paul's life he faced up to two years of uncertainty when confronted with accusations from the Jews and the bureaucracy from all those in power who being fearful kept passing the buck. What’s interesting with Paul's life is that when needed he was able to subvert the discrimination against his Faith by his various citizenships. This is a reason he was chosen, to be one of the few if not the prime apostle to engage so many cultural backgrounds for the profession of the Faith, in Christ Jesus. God prepared him for these onslaughts. We are also prepared. Sure so of us face tragedy after tragedy and our life seem more filled with sorrow than life but through it all if we don’t faint eventually we have our Victory. With the Faith in His promises we must stand steadfast not allowing fear, confusion or anxiety to cast us into darkness but by girt, composure and boldness we face the unexpected, expecting only the positive outcome.
