  • Wow im just getting fresh revrlation from this verse from Spirit this morning. My husbsnd and i habe been ministeting on the Power of speaking the word professing it drcreeing it,how Kk g David ran toward Goliath saying words he was t afraid of the physical giant. Words are Spiritual the parent force more power over physical. Anyway our Spirit gets born again not our soul which is our mind will and emotions. Holy Spirit is telling me train up a child is telling our soul child what to do make it line up with the spirit. Then thr body will follow. Thr soul is like a baby acts like a baby esnting its own way. We have to train it in the spirit tell it the word till it gets it through its head or heart make it mind like a muscle.
  • Demelash for verse 26
    This is a good warning. Basically saying not to cosign for another person. This situation comes up usually when a person is buying a car. A family member asked me to co-sign for her a vehicle and I remembered this scripture. It is not sinful or wrong to co-sign, just not wise.
