    My God said that he will supply all our needs according to his riches and glory and he did just that and King David was a man after God's own Heart) Ps:18 explains how he called out to God and God heard his cry and answer him Praise the Lord for his wonders works (and God doesn't change) we do ,We must Obey God just as King David did , he fell short at times and had to reap ,God's Mercy

    God is a God of second chance. He is full of Grace and Mercy. There is no one beyound his saving power. I love this song that his " Mercy reaches to the highest mountain and flows to the lowest valley". John 1:9 says "If we confess our sins he is faithful and just and will forgive us of all of our sin and purify us from all unrighteousness". Thats the Type of God I serve!!!

    This morning I woke up, singing Gospel Hymns. One, my favorite, This Little Light of Mines. With that being said. God is, the light. When I call his name he lights up my life, etc. He makes the good better and the bad good. Psalms 18:28, definitely the Truth. With God all things must come to light. In God and with God, there is no darkness or anything hidden.
  • Tilda
    Hallelujah,for Jesus christ is the light meaning if we accept Jesus Christ as our personal saviour as we did,He also enlightened us delivering us out of darkness in the world,i worship and thank God for His evershining to my life
