    Verse 4 had been in many of my devotions lately. I have been praying about a situation for nearly 4 yrs now and I get discouraged at times. One devotions on this talked about being content and the Lord will eventually provide what we need. So I am learning to be content while I wait.

    Only people who heard the words of God and obeying his words will receive life in abundance. Without hearing his words it's impossible to please him. Thanking the blood of Jesus and praising him are more than enough. If we have Jesus in our life we have everything that we need. Just trust his will. God's ways and thoughts are higher than us. His will will be done accrding to his righteousness Amn
