    I love God because in his word lives everything we need, He said in the beginning was the word and the word was with God and the word was God. So God is his word and we have to believe in Him, and speak his word over our life every day. Because we walk by faith and not by sight, God is our eternal protection and everything we need. He is OUR source of life. Praise be to God in Jesus name, amen.
