    When I was a new Christian God gave me a verse about faith word was empty to me at that time bec. I didnt understand as the spirit of God teaches me through my experience my circumstances, i started to grow in His word Faith not my own understanding but through Him. I never even realise that this is my weapon for all circumtances, situations I am going to face and He will be with me in it, He will never leave me nor forsake me through His word and I have faith in Him. His word become in my flesh. I walk by faith and not by sight. To God be the glory

    I should read Jesus every morning, in this world of so many temptations I struggle so hard with my mind and feel I am a vessel of wrath, a let now to the Lord, not worthy of even picking up his word, but I keep waiting for mental stamina, and will I guess until I have passed. I will pray today not just for me, but for every one who can't get it right.

    Reading this today spoke to my heart. I want to be a doer of the word not just a hearer but temptation does pull you into criticizing others instead of treating them as God has treated us with kindness, nonjudgmental and graceful. Thank you God for these words of encouragement and guidance written by James. Blessed be your name.
