    GOD loves us so much that's why Jesus are given to us so that all our sins are forgiven . God only tested Abraham and his son Jesus Christ and they passd, Jesus took all our pain, worries on the cross so that we all must have life in abundance.it is finished we are now victorious. Our job now is to accept Jesus and obey his words without our obedience its impossible to be save and please him.

    To Todd, et al: Don t become frustrated with understanding. I heard an old adage which I have experienced regularly since studying God s word and that is this, It s not the things I don t understand that bother me about the Bible, it s the things I do understand that worry me. Things that bother me because they are clear and distinct in God s word are the Bible s teaching on the depravity of man, our willfulness to sin, the wiles of the devil, the future of unbelievers and their eternal damnation including my friends and family , and my efforts in regard to sowing the seed of the gospel, etc. According to Psalm 1, we are blessed when we obey God s word in accordance with our relationships and we are delighted or receive light understanding when we consider God s word in regard to our actions. Before we make a decision about our relationships or interactions with others, especially unbelievers, the Psalmist encourages us to consider God s word. Of course, the impetus of the message is on God to fulfill it in our hearts and minds because verse six 6 claims the LORD knoweth the way of the righteous. Therefore, He helps us to understand what we need, when we need it as we meditate on His word. I thank God that His word does what it claims when we trust in Him.

    God will help us to understand his words if we diligently seeking him. The word of the Lord should comes from his mouth and not from a man's knowledge. Believe and trust his words and lean not with your own understanding. For the earth and seas will pass away but his words will stay. Praised you Jesus and I love you forever Amen
