    If we abide God and his words in our life we have everything we need. We need the Holy Spirit to connect with our Spirit . By the power of the Holy Spirit, his WORDS and his PEACE it passes all UNDERSTANDING. We have God's favour and mercy to enlighten other people's lives. Thank you Jesus for the blood . Teach me to humble myself before you Lord help me to be born again in spirit in my life AMN

    To be bold is not what we think : To be bold is to be strong in God's word in the face of adversity : Not to be bold in the face of people that are our apponet : But to do as God leads , If we are in unbelief we will flee as the wicked !!
