And now I urge you to take heart, for there will be no loss of life among you, … For there stood by me this night an angel of the God to whom I belong and whom I serve, saying, ‘Do not be afraid, Paul; you must be brought before Caesar; and indeed God has granted you all those who sail with you.’ Therefore take heart, men, for I believe God that it will be just as it was told me. …And so it was that they all escaped safely to land. Acts 27:22‭-‬25‭, ‬44 NKJV

The Christian life is entirely about faith, confidence, courage and absolute trust in God through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Though difficulties, trials and tribulations of all kinds are bound to arise along the way either as a result of our commitment and desire to do God’s will or as a result of systemic failure or errors of some people. We can be rest assured that God Himself is with us all through the storms and He will save us at last.

Therefore, no matter the contrary views, reports and opinions you are receiving. No matter the prevalent situations in your life that suggest doom or disaster, God’s covenant and promises for you will be just as He has told you.

Don’t give up yet! Take courage and press on without looking back for you have not been destined for shame, ridicule and destruction but for praise, glory and salvation in Christ Jesus. May the good God strenghten your heart to remain hopeful till the end. Happy Lord’s Day.

Your brother,
