Following the success of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, actress Letitia Wright shared her favorite Bible verse that always reminded her to keep her eyes on God.
Black Panther actress shares God’s word
In a recent video YouVersion shared on Instagram, Letitia Wright revealed her favorite Bible verse. Through the verse, she encouraged viewers to always put God first.
“This verse means a lot to me because it reminds me to keep my eyes on God, to seek His Kingdom first,” she said. “And when I do that, everything will be added. You know, whatever I have need of, He’ll give it to me. So I love that.
Additionally, the actress revealed that it was one of the verses she had when she “first became a Christian.” She held very dearly to the Word and continues to hold to it today.
“So I just pray that it blesses you today,” Letitia told viewers.
The Faith of Letitia Wright
In the past, the Black Panther star suffered from depression until she found God. After giving her life to Jesus, doors began to open for the actress. She eventually landed a major role in Marvel Studios’ Black Panther movie, where she had her biggest break in the industry.
In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter in 2018, Letitia revealed how God confirmed to her that she would have the role of Princess Shuri in Black Panther.
“I got this role, God told me,” she said.
Apparently, the actress checks with God every time before accepting a role. Regardless of big name or big budget, Letitia wouldn’t hesitate to refuse if God told her not to.
“Am I right about this part? Is this what I should be playing? If something’s wrong with my mind, I know that’s God’s way of saying, ‘You shouldn’t do that,’” she remarked.
At some point, she also stopped acting to come to terms with God and protect her relationship with him.
Today, despite some opposition, Letitia continues to speak out about her faith. She often uses her platform to share and proclaim her faith to the public.
