Several years ago, the Lord asked me to trust Him with the biggest risk of my life. He told me to follow Him and to trust Him to show up to provide. Then He gave me a promise of endless support and He said that He would provide for all of our needs through His opulent riches.
With a little blessing of money that God had given to me, I took all the money that I had in the world and I reserved a hotel room for me and my children for 5 days. All I had to hold onto was my hope that He would show up and a promise that He gave me to support my little family.
After those 5 days, the provision of promise became like a never-ending basket of bread that would multiply just in time. Always enough and never too late, God would show up as the manifestation of comfort for all of our needs.
This has gone on consistently for all of this time and God has continued to hold up our family through supernatural support. Although it was not like I expected and my faith was challenged to trust Him to a greater amount.
As my faith grew, so did the support. The refuge that He provided for us started out small and continued to get bigger and better. God has taken us from small hotel rooms, to really nice hotel rooms and then to luxurious apartments and beautiful homes.
Through this journey, I have grown closer to living as a believer…and not just saying that I am. For every fear that I overcame, there was a double manifestation of comfort from His love.
I went from being almost homeless to being lifted into the high places of God’s loving support. It all came from trusting His promise and stepping out of my comfort zone into the unknown. Throughout the years I have seen His promises fulfilled over and over again. He really does make these promises tangible, when we trust Him with the faith of a child.
Every single love letter from this blog has been written through deep encounters with the Lord’s kindness and love in a time of desperation and trust. All of these letters have been formulated from His love meeting me in a place of surrendering my worries and fears to Him.
Following each surrender, a love letter of His intentional love was given to comfort and calm my anxious thoughts. After each love letter, there have been countless encounters of seeing those words become tangible before our eyes. Many of these experiences I have written about in the “Faith Story” posts.
These letters are His personal promises for all of us and when mingled with faith, they will be fulfilled. It takes persistence and practice to reach the high places of faith living. He always goes above and beyond all that we expect and trust Him for. As you read these letters, I encourage you to expand your limits to trust and believe in something big. Nothing will be impossible!~
