    Going along with vv. 8-9, Matt. 6:33. But seek ye first the kingdom of God, AND HIS RIGHTIOUSNESS, and all these things shall be added unto you. When giving tithes and offerings, unto the Lord, if in your heart you are so disposed, please make a way, Lord, for the increase in giving. Cheerful giving. And He will make the way, out of His abundance! His grace is sufficient for us. BELIEVE!!

    I attend an online doctoral program that happens to be a Christian based university. Each week the facilitator will have a prayer for the week. I searched another scripture first Psalm 118:24, but somehow this one surfaced. This is the one I used to submit to the classroom forum because it spoke to everything in my life that has happened and is currently happening with my fiance' and my best friend. Thank you for breaking down this scripture for me.

    In all thy ways acknowledge him and he shall direct thy paths. I trust the Lord in all his ways for his ways are higher than our ways and his thoughts are higher than our thoughts neither his ways is ours. Thanks to the blood of Jesus by his blood i am cleansed Jesus and his words are my life . Jesus is the Vine without him WE as the branches cant bear fruits. Lets worship and praise Jesus amen
