    Without hearing or meditating the word of God it is impossible to please him and to gain faith. It is He who give us this gift of faith. Blessed are those who are hungry for righteousness for they shall see God pray for those who curse and persecute you for they shall the glory of God. If God is for us who can be against us. A wise man will not give a place for the foolish and evil man . Jesus wants our eyes to fix on him. Our obedience to his words are very important when seeking diligently Jesus. He will turn our pain into joy. Lets give thanks to his blood and praise him for what he have done in our life and this is should be our prayers. Amen

  • This is the verse to read and take to heart before doing...pretty much anything. Also this verse came to my attention by the grace of God when I was into the occult. It one of the first verses I came to that would help point me into a new direction. This verse indicates that the occult,witchcraft,etc. Is a lie and a deception that will only lead a person to hell.
